Even though, everyone had heard of him, Louie was notorious for stealing (8-9). Because of his raucousness and heritage , Louie became a candidate for an increasingly popular procedure called eugenics. Page 12 explains that “eugenics was forced sterilization, a surgical procedure that rendered patients unable to have children.” The thought of being an ‘unfit’ member of society scarred Louie tremendously. After a failed runaway attempt “Louie went upstairs, dropped into bed, and whispered his surrender to Pete. He was going to be a runner and he was going to go all out” (16).
When Odysseus returns home, he soon finds out that the suitors have been treating his kingdom harshly. As Odysseus enters his kingdom, he is met by Antinous the leading suitor and Antinous treats him with disrespect.“The stool he let fly hit the man's right shoulder on the packed muscle under the shoulder blade-like solid rock, for all the effect one saw” (Fitzgerald 603). Even though Antinous did not know this beggar was Odysseus that went through 10 years in the Trojan War, he still hit him with a wooden stool. He treated Odysseus like trash until the other suitors told him to stop. Odysseus held back his anger toward Antinous when he hit him in the shoulder with a stool to show justice later on.
Hannah Noel Mrs. Beaupre English 1 Honors 3 October 2016 Dialecticals 7-9 Chapter 7 One passage I think is interesting is, “The old man whispered something, let out a rattle, and died amid the general indifference. His son searched him, took the bread, and began to devour it” (Wiesel 74). A questioning passage is, “The passengers on our boat were amusing themselves by throwing coins to the “natives”, who were diving in to get them” (Wiesel 73). Lastly, a passage that is sad is, “I set to work to slap him as hard as I could” (Wiesel 73). In this chapter, the author uses both long and short sentences.
I loved the part when they were looking for Ra in a home-for-the-aged-gods called Sunny Acres, which is probably the worst name given for a totally depressing godly institution. It was ironic and funny that they were searching for the sun god in a place meant for forgotten, old and wrinkled deities manned by a hippo goddess. I had to admit, I kind of lost some hope when they found him, and he was a hundred percent senile, acting like a child, probably wearing adult diapers and muttering about sick weasels. But oh well, the book was still a bit far off from the ending so I figured they would survive the crisis, plus Ra isn’t complete yet at that time so I thought maybe he’s not so bad once he regained his old strength and wits. The Kane siblings
His memory was so awful, that after they ran out of there, he didn’t remember what he had done. All this does, is prove once again that George made the right decision. Killing Lennie was the kindest thing George could’ve done for him. Curley is always trying to start fights, so when Lennie, a very large man, shows up at the ranch he tried to assert his dominance. Lennie ends up crushing his hand, which makes Curley hate him even more.
He becomes the hunter at these times, the invincible hunter who can lie still for hours, for days, only moving to refuel his body with the medicine, using his osprey’s vision to spot enemy. (212) This shows how Elijah has become so, dependent on morphine that when he goes without it he feels like there is n meaning to his life anymore and the morphine helps him cover that. The killing and destruction of the war caused Elijah to be so hollow in the inside and destructed that the morphine which is a terrible anecdote helps him heal his problems but, allows Elijah to kill more because he has no
He was staring down at the cement patio, and when he turned to me, his eyes had a wounded look, like a dog who 's been kicked. "You must be awfully ashamed of your old man," he said.” This led to Rex giving up alcohol for short time. In the movie to show his, craziness in the detoxing scene, he was literally chained to a bed screaming like a wild animal. This tells us and sheds light on the true drunk of a man, Rex is. This point is told the same in the book and the movie, but strengthened by visualizing seeing it.
n both the excerpt about Unferth from Beowulf and the poem “The Wife’s Lament”, the themes of betrayal and anger are shown within the stories; however, they are expressed differently. To begin with, Unferth shows his anger towards Beowulf by attempting to embarrass him in front of all the men, including King Hrothgar. For example, Unferth states “No one, neither friend nor foe, could keep you from your sad journey, when you swam out to sea… Breca outslayed you, he was stronger” (427-435). Unferth is trying to say that Beowulf is weak and can’t compete with anyone or anything. He says such things because he is madly jealous that Beowulf will fight with Grendel instead of him.
Interestingly enough, invisible crewmen were still visible to other sailors who had survived the original experiment. After a while, the Freeze effect lasted for days or months, and became known as the 'Deep Freeze ' (other terms include 'Caught in the Flow ', 'Caught in the Push ', 'Get Stuck ', 'Go Blank ', 'Hell Incorporated ' or 'Stuck in Molasses '). The Deep Freeze could drive a man insane in very short order, and was only able to be counteracted if other crewmen performed a 'Laying on of Hands ' technique to give the victim strength and allow him to recover from his affliction. Unfortunately, two men burst into flames while Laying on of Hands, burning for 18 days despite all
My first experience with my cadaver was quite memorable. The sights, sounds, smells, and textures disturbed me so much that I wrote an entire poem to convince myself that this man, with his lifelike chest hair and gelatinous moles, was only an empty shell that had housed a soul in the past. In comparison, my last day with the cadaver was unremarkable. I had gotten used to the stench of formaldehyde mixed with preserved guts; the thick, juicy layers of subcutaneous fat that so resembled meat trimmings; the nameless fluids and bits of tissue that had collected at the bottom of the body bag; and the act of cutting through something that had once been a living person. More accurately, these aspects of anatomy still bothered me during the first
