When first hearing her introduction I didn’t quite understand how that was going to tie back in with her speech, but once she finished her introduction it began to make a little more sense. In addition, in her concluding paragraph she tied her belief of not being sorry for being herself into her attention getter like her weird scarf collection, or her never killing bugs. Not apologizing if you don’t mean it, gratitude is greater than apologies, and not being sorry for who you are were three main points that struck me the most from “No Apology Living.” Megan did a good job of really persuading me to want to live a life like this. It is a way that could help turn my life into being more positive. “I’m sorry,” is just a phrase that seems ingrained into our minds and flows at the thought of us trying to act as a little bandage in a

By taking away their speech it symbolizes how the oppressed did not have freedom of speech and it also dehumanize them yet again. The injured and contorted figures disturbs the state of the human body and their right to having all that is necessary. The pain and distress of the nation is represented by the violated human body filled with open wounds and bones showing. They gradually but firmly establish a kind of animalistic reversion in the viewers, which makes the figures repulsive to look at. One more subtle point Jane Alexander made was that the state and those who condoned it were cowards.
Heller is an unusual person because of her terrible experience in the Auschwitz concentration camp under the Second World War. Mrs. Heller is handicapped because of her incapability to walk and her blindness. As she says “My eyes are blind” after which she explains how it is a curse to her that people have an aversion to believe in her story and therefore she has to picture the horrible events multiple times. She has a will to make people believe her stories, she demands that people know to the terrifying history and how shocking events can never be fully forgotten. Hereby a main theme for this short story could be: Lack of recognition of problems in hope of dodging uncomfortable feelings.
Mrs Dubose displays the towns narrow mindset through her racist and misogynistic ideology, she is seen to have an acid tongue and uses this to criticise everyone who does not think the same way as her. Another example of Mrs Dubose’s narrow ideals is when she criticises Scout for her lack of femininity, “what are you doing in those overalls? You should be in a dress and camisole, young lady!” The rhetorical question shows how Mrs Dubose believes that Scout wearing overalls is unlawful and one of the most horrifying things in the town, this shows that her mindset is flawed and cannot be trusted as she prioritises femininity over crime or racism. Mrs Dubose is seen to fit in with the rest of the town folk, and is used to display their ideals and thoughts. The neighbours perception of Atticus’ parental care is presented through the character of Mrs Dubose.
Being a successful , director and writer, Nora Ephron, showcased her skills of being a strong author prowess in a speech read during a graduation at Wellesley College in 1996, she goes on to talk about how the real world is, and everything taught at the college isn’t necessarily facts. The purpose of her speech was to inspire the audience of women to live a little bit contrary to what they were taught and live a life they can be proud and they do not have to cater to their man’s every whim. The author’s gets her point across by using a confident tone, willing to crack jokes and have a more playful approach rather than using serious, boring, traditional methods. In her speech Nora Ephron uses comedic relief, diction, and appeals to push her point and have a playful.. Nora Ephron uses very different style tone standard speech and uses a lot of jokes to be funny and intrigue the audience. An example of this is “ It was so long ago that if you had a boy in your room, you had to leave the door open six inches, and if you closed the door you had to put a sock on the doorknob”(Ephron Pg.2).
The irony in her hat being destroyed shows that she is no longer considered to be a “lady.” Also, the imagery in the story is very easy to see and hear. Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s story “The Yellow Wallpaper” shows its symbolism in the wall paper that the narrator’s room is surrounded by. The narrator, who seems to be suffering from some kind of depression, is absolutely appalled by the yellow colored wallpaper that surrounds the room by stating, “I never saw a worse paper in my life. One of those sprawling flamboyant patterns committing every artistic sin.” (381) Her constant mention of hating the wallpaper seems like it becomes an odd obsession for the narrator. The woman who she is seeing
Thirdly, another feature that I could notice is how Macbeth undergoes terrible pangs of conscience and feels guilty before, during, and after commits the murder of King Duncan, and this can be notice in this quote “But let the frame of things disjoint, both the worlds suffer, ere we will eat our meal in fear and sleep in the affliction of these terrible dreams that shake us nightly: better be with the dead, whom we, to gain our peace, have sent to peace, Than on the torture of the mind to lie in restless ecstasy”. However, with Tom we did not notice any kind of this, he represents the lack of feeling guilty, in fact, he is a cold-blooded killer, a man who both lies and murders in cold
One of the biggest highlighted event in the movie would be when the white people made separate bathrooms for the black people in their houses. People were disgusted about the idea of having to use the same toilet as a black person because of the “diseases” they carry and wanted seperate bathrooms. This was also just another way that white people to keep blacks under them by making them feel inferior. We also have the case of the segregated buses where the white sit in the front and black sit in the back. At this point of the movie a young black man had gotten shot and the driver boarded the bus to kick off all the black people just by saying “colored people off”.
