d. Identify the literary form(s) employed in the segment. Prose narrative Chapter 13 – Exercise: Detailed Observation for Jonah 4:1-11. Jonah’s Prayer of Displeasure of Prayer (4:1-3) 1 “But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was very angry.”
Jonah is furious, however, and angrily tells God that this is the reason he tried to flee from Him, as he knew Him to be a just and merciful God. He then beseeches God to kill him, a request which is denied when God causes a tree to grow over him, giving him shade. Initially grateful, Jonah's anger returns the next day, when God sends a worm to eat the plant, withering it, and he tells God that it would be better if he were dead. God then points out, “You are concerned about the bush, for which you did not labour and which you did not grow; it came into being in a night and perished in a night. And should I not be concerned about Nineveh, that great city, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who do not know their right hand from their left, and also many animals?”
Blake underlines the unjust and uncompassionate institutionalized religion as a human construct. Blake suggests that the origins of such social ills are forged by divided selfhood, creating a ‘God’ and social order in their own image. Poem is a remarkably ambitious examination of institutionalized virtues and its progressive enrichment. Blake epitomizes the reasoning through…Man only sees the portion of existence that is comprehendible to his corporeal understanding. Man is unable to apprehend the quintessential idea that virtue is equal to vice; for virtue cannot exist if there is no vice.
He wanted to give man fire but Zeus would not make it possible for them. Prometheus refusing to obey Zeus and stole fire from the Gods and brought it down to man. Zeus was so mad that he tied or wrapped Prometheus to a rock. Each day an eagle tears out maybe because of being affected with or expressive of grief and ate his liver during the day which grew back each night time. Zeus believed man needed to become weaker, less forceful, and less effective after the power of fire was given to him to become powerful.
Eli also knew that Carnegie was the wrong person for the Bible. The voices in his head that first told him to go on his long journey did not specifically tell him where and who to bring the Bible to, so he followed his gut instinct and his faith. Carnegie ended up dying a slow death was an infection in his flesh wound with “his people” attacking him in the end. This is the opposite of how Eli died, which was after he peacefully stated every word from the Bible and was properly
As Meursault perceives life contains no meaning, he is a hollow man who can not see the reality of life. He is much ignorant and lives in the present. “whole landscape shimmer with heat, it was inhumane and oppressive”(Camus 15).The sun represents the intimidating power of the natural worlds over human action.

The sun is also the driving force, which makes Meursault murder the Arab man at the beach.
Throughout the sonnet, the speaker reveals he is not a particularly loyal follower of God, he states that ‘I change in vows, and in devotion./As humorous is my contrition’ This reflects Donne’s personal feelings regarding his decision to change religion and suggests that the speaker views himself as being unreliable and a generally bad worshipper of his lord. This adds to the argument that the sonnets display a lack of religious assurance as in these lines the speakers lack of assurance about his own faith is obvious. This shows the reader that Donne’s speaker feels some justification for his inability to gain salvation as his faith is everchanging.
Shakespeare uses particular words such as “death” (4.4.55), “danger dare” (4.4.55), “eggshell” (4.4.56), and “honor” (4.4.59) to show that Fortinbras’ men are braver than Hamlet since they take action. For this, Hamlet is irritated since they are fighting for an eggshell, a simple and useless item. However, this irritation sparks a realization which allows a powerful ending to the soliloquy. Hamlet vows to only have “bloody” (4.4.69) thoughts. At this point, Hamlet is seeking
For example, Drummond says, “Extend the Testaments! Let us have a Book of Brady! We shall hex the Pentateuch and slip you in neatly between Numbers and Deuteronomy!” (101) These words, directed at Brady from Drummond, are rather unnecessary and cruel on Drummond’s part. In addition, Henry Drummond appears to be a very intimidating and malicious evolutionist.
The reason behind these parables is to be understood and put in action. One of these messages in the Lost Sheep Parable is to change what was known in Judaism.

He encouraged sinners to a clear message, to be righteous as he compares between the ninety-nine sheep to one lost sheep.
George 's Tea room, reality always destroys Hally 's hope, ultimately wrecking his imagination and taking him out of Sam’s protective realm. Hally “oscillate[s] between hope and despair” (15), the hope being Sam’s sanctuary and despair being reality for Hally. After experiencing the miracle of flying that kite, Hally returns back to despair, or reality’s poisonous realm, as he has “no self pity” (32) when he realizes that there won’t be a chance “of flying a kite” (31) again, especially not with his crippled dad.

He fears that he has lost God’s grace, or fears that others may tempt him into sin. Uncertain of his place and of the intentions of others, he attempts to find the sin before it may taint him further. However, sin’s taint had already reached him.

When Adam and Eve sinned through eating the forbidden fruit, the earth was cursed. Even when someone enters into a personal relationship with Christ, the sin nature is still a problem. “Walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh” (Gal. 5:16 ESV). Presently, this sin nature prevents complete purity in love, beauty, and justice; however, God promises a new heaven and a new earth with a return to a sinless existence when ‘no longer will there be anything accursed” (Rev. 22:3 ESV).
