She goes on to find a room with bodies of Bluebeard’s former wives. He then returns and tries to kill her, but in the end, her brothers comes to save her and they kill Bluebeard. The bones of this story and the characters are almost identical to what we find in The Bloody Chamber. One can argue that the protagonist, a virginal girl who marries the monstrous Marquis, is a very predictable character. She is, in most ways presented as the typical damsel in distress who marries the rich, mysterious guy, and ultimately needs saving.
Ganelon committed quite a number of sins which presented him as being morally ambiguous. Over the course of the story, we saw that Ganelon was a very well-respected baron and also Roland's stepfather. But it was also clear that he resented his stepson's boastfulness and popularity among the Franks and his success on the battlefield. His jealousy served as a factor because Charlemagne favored Roland and Ganelon felt like he wasn't cared for. As a result of his resentment, He planned with the Saracens to kill Roland and his guards, this was after Roland had nominated him to be the messenger of the Saracens and he was not too happy about that so he used the opportunity to create a plan to kill Roland.
It was his way of coping…” (218) Readers sympathize with and pity Lavender, “who was scared,” who couldn't quite handle the stress of war and resorted to taking tranquilizers—before being killed in the very first chapter. At first glance, readers are restricted to the blinders of our narrator’s perspective. Each soldier had to face his fear of war, and
Bergeron escapes from jail and ends up on National Television. Bergeron starts to make a scene and yells on national television, “I AM THE EMPEROR!” After all of that he pulls off all of his many handicaps and ask for an Empress, since he interrupted a ballet show he had many to choose from. When he started dancing with his empress, he finds him and his empress getting shot in the head and killed by The handicapper General, Diana Moon Glampers. Vonnegut has Bergeron killed at the end of the story because he wanted to show the hopelessness of inequality. To start off with how achieving inequality is hopeless is how the government have handicaps.
Overall, To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee is a novel that does a good job of showing how innocence can be destroyed by the display of evil. Innocence was destroyed many times at the trial. All the kids felt the bad vibes in the courthouse, but it was Jem who took the hardest blow. Jem believed that the court would indict Tom because Atticus provided hard evidence that he was innocent. He thought
The theme of The Crucible by Arthur Miller is that vengeance only leads to more suffering not just you but the people around you as well. One event that shows this theme is when Abigail William and her friends were in the woods dancing. Meanwhile, Abby took up blood and drank it. Betty witnesses, “ You drank blood Abby you didn't tell him that.” trying to infuse a curse on Goody Proctor John Proctor’s wife. This shows the theme because Abigail who use to work at the Proctor’s household claims to had a fling with Mr. Proctor.
They were throwing snowballs and calling the soldiers names. Eventually, Officer Preston ordered his men to fire. They shot into the crowd and killed five people (Document B). This event also showed how cruel the British are. They murdered people who were not putting them in any danger.
In addition, the scene where one of the inexperienced soldiers falls into the poison gas filled trench, and Kat is about to shoot him to rid him of his pain, shows the use of lethal gas in the Great War by nations to kill masses of people. The poisonous gases would usually inflict serious injuries, and later death, upon soldiers, to which others, mercifully, would kill the injured soldier, to give them a painless death. Moreover, the depiction of machine guns and poisonous gases, alongside trench warfare, is used to imply that military advances and defences for these tactics were the reason why a stalemate occurred in World War
Once the girls were screaming about a “cold wind,” a “shadow,” and a “bird” that was Mary, she broke, Mary told Abigail she was sorry and that Proctor made her confess to the “lies” and saying, “You’re the Devil’s man!” (Crucible, Act 3, Line 469). While also saying that Proctor came at her during the night with a book to sign herself to the devil. Mary didn’t want to be thrown into jail because of Abigail so she rather Proctor deal with Elizabeth being there, and have himself thrown in jail while she saved herself from the
After Adams reviewed all the information over, he was able to identify that the soldiers where only trying to defend themselves from the raging crowds assault. A few witnesses were called on to testify against the soldiers, some stating that they saw the captain give the order to fire and some stating that the soldiers were just trying to protect themselves from the crowd. In Linder’s article, it is stated that one of the injured men from that night said he forgave the man who shot him and that he knew that he fired in self-defense (Linder 2001). On contrary, Linder states that an eyewitness who saw one of the soldiers shoot John Gray, claimed that if Killroy ever had the chance, he would shoot the inhabitants of Boston and that he has wanted the opportunity since he got to Boston (Linder 2001). The statement gave the jury another opinion to see who was to be blamed for the horrid massacre.
