The satire present here is that the altering of the ten commandments effectively portray how the absurd the concept is. There is no way that animals could become, “more equal” than others. In the beginning of the novel, Old Major expressed that the animals shall overcome their oppressors, but the pigs become the oppressors. Through their chants and the ten commandments, the citizens are brainwashed to believe that everything is just and fair because when the commandments and chants were first written or said, everyone was in agreement, and believed it was fair. The pigs start to alter the propaganda, and the animals still believe that it is fair, when in reality it is not.
Hosenfeld was a very devoted soldier. As Hitler rose to power, Hosenfeld admired him extremely. Hitler rising also encouraged Hosenfeld to lean more toward national socialism (Haaretz). In result he joined Hitler 's brownshirts in 1933 and eventually fell into the Nazi Party itself in 1935 (Haaretz). At first look he believed wholeheartedly in the Nazi cause, but after reading the “Mein Kampf” everything in his mindset began to change(Jewish Virtual Library).
Cesar Chavez had a great pride towards everything he stood for, whether it was his catholic beliefs or protecting his fellow man from the oppressor. Growing up in America, Cesar Chavez witnessed discrimination from being Mexican first hand. By growing up in a family oriented catholic home, he was raised to care about the well being of others and to approach life in a nonviolent manner. Having a father who was a farmer, he witnessed the poor living conditions and wages that were given to him and knew that something had to be done. Cesar Chavez’s fight for improving working conditions for farmers helped him gather a large following of Mexican Americans.
The webs that Charlotte is able to create amazes Mr. Zukerman who believes that they are a miracle and he even begins to believe that Wilbur is no ordinary pig. Charlotte passes on this good news to the rest of the farm yard animals who have also begun to take part in the plan by helping Charlotte to come up with new words that will impress Mr. Zukerman. Charlotte tells the other animals “The message I wrote in my web, praising Wilbur, has been received. The Zukerman’s have fallen for it, and so has everybody else. Zukerman thinks Wilbur is an unusual pig, and therefore he won’t want to kill and eat him.
Since symbolism takes place as an object represented multiple times as a figure with symbolic meaning, then the cherry bomb takes place as a form of symbolism. The cherry bomb characterizes itself as a memory of Eddy because Clair describes how the cherry bomb reminds her of Eddy because “After Eddy’s accident, he gave me a cherry bomb. His last. I kept it in my cigar box as a sort of memento of good times.” The cherry bomb demonstrates this symbolic meaning because Clair tagged the cherry bomb with her memories of “good times” with Eddy.
The Admirable Traits of John Proctor Who is the most admirable OR despicable character in the plan, and why? What is the larger theme and message that Miller sends through the character? I believe that John Proctor is the most admirable character above everyone else, in The Crucible, by Arthur Miller. I believe this because John is honest, hardworking, and he loves his wife, who is in peril of being falsely charged with witchcraft. John Proctor is a farmer that lives outside of Salem, and his wife is Elizabeth (Miller, 20).
Chavez asserts repeatedly that nonviolence is the only way for change to happen. The repeated use of “we”, “us” and “our” conveys the message to the audience that he is one of them. Chavez can relate to the farm workers based on his credibility (ethos) because of his past. Chavez went to work on the farm fields at a young age and knew exactly how the frustrated workers felt.
However, although his contemporaries extensively praised Henry throughout the play, this does not mitigate his flaws, since humans are, in their ignorance, prone to be flawed in their judgment, and thus it is God and the Scriptures, not humans and their words, which alone are the ultimate judges of mankind. In addition, some may assert that Henry was an ideal king because the chorus also praised him. Indeed, the chorus called Henry V “the mirror of all Christian kings” (2.Chorus.6) and a “star of England” (5.Epilogue.6), and likened him to both “Mars” (Prologue.6) and “the sun” (4.Chorus.44). By contrasting the popular view of Henry (declared by the chorus) with the actual actions of the king, however, Shakespeare heightened his own, more critical view of Henry.
Late medieval Europeans reckoned that healing saints could inflict the same maladies they were meant to heal. And we have compelling evidence that the peoples of the Rhine and Mosel valleys believed that when the wrath of St. Vitus had been provoked, he sent down plagues of compulsive dancing. This makes sense because in religious cults St. Vitus was a well known saint in the christian bible and often recognized throughout cults. The dancers committed strange movements and exhibited actions that were part of christian traditions, paying homage to jesus. In their songs they uttered names of the devil and names they have never heard before.
I believe that Hatchet did a better job of explaining the story using imagery and foreshadowing. In Hatchet, it did a great job of listing the details of how Brian was feeling, and what he was thinking. For example, in the book when he created the fire, it showed how excited and proud he was. The book also listed descriptive detail and it had more events. I often found that Hatchet was terrific at including constant of imagery.
Huxley’s creation of ‘Soma’ and the way it is used in the world state establishes the satirical values accentuated throughout the faulty utopian setting of the ‘Brave New World’. Many characters, in particular Linda and Lenina, are seen to be under the influence of ‘soma’, to replace the distress they experience with pleasure stimulated by the drug-like substance. Chapter seventeen illustrates the power of ‘soma’ on the society through Mustapha Mond’s statement about soma being “Christianity without the tears.” Due to its sedative and calming effects on the users, it is the most powerful tool for the political leaders to control the large population of individuals, by distracting them from the realization of the immoral nature of the society they reside in; hence they are enslaved in a trance of false happiness. The metaphoric use of Christianity replaced by ‘Soma’ indicates the author’s view of the religion offering the same effects of the drug; provide comfort at the expense of individuality.
Coifi is described as “rejoicing in the knowledge of the worship of the true God” and destroying pagan temples with the help of his followers. This is a clear answer from Bede as to how successful Northumbrian conversion was. The answer is that it was very successful as Christianity seems to have been taken up by people on all levels of society. D. P. Kirby would agree with Bede, stating that Edwin’s baptism was “a great triumph for the Roman mission” However the success of conversion is debatable as after an initially successful start the conversion “retreated after Edwin’s death” .
