Personally, she forgives easily and chooses to see the decency in people, leading to her allowing them back in her life. It surprised me when I discovered that my grandma had a similar response. She, too, said she was quick to forgive. However, she also realizes that nothing terrible has happened to her. In the book, Morrie also said, “Forgive yourself before you die.
Throughout the eulogy you see her saying “I thank you for not moving” “I thank you for that” “I thank you for acting without concern.” Using repetition in this area utilizes how grateful she is for what Rosa Parks did by standing up the way she did, not caring what people would do or say to her. The effect this type of writing has is it shows the extent of how
We see her devotion to Macduff when asked by the murders where he is she replies; “I hope, in place so unsanctified, Where such as thou may’st find him.” Lastly, in contrast to how Lady Macbeth faced her death, Lady Macduff had a clear conscience and thought only of her family's safety, even as she was being pursued by Macbeth's henchmen. The difference between the life stories of the Scottish lords Macduff and Macbeth was largely due to their wives' influence. Overall, Lady Macduff was a much better influence on her husband than Lady Macbeth was. Their goodness or lack thereof affected not only their own lives but also those of every other Scotsmen from that time
Ford is suppose to be a guide or mentor but is not very effective. Instead of helping Arthur along the way, he gives him a book that he is suppose to read through and understand. Ford always wants to be the “cool” one. He is always trying to remain relaxed during problematic times. Adams makes Ford out to be a very ironic character which makes him funny.
Anne Bradstreet listens to and accepts anything that God wishes, and that is shown through her poem Upon the Burning of my House. Bradstreet knows the goodness in God and rather than fearing him she thanks Him or asks for help. While her house was burning she asked God “to strengthen [her] in [her] time of distress”(9) because she knows everything that happens is through the will of God and only He can help her through this difficult situation. Bradstreet sees God as a just one even though he took all of her physical possessions. She takes His justness a step further by saying in lines 18 and 19 that even if He took all of her belongings, it would still be reasonable.
He emphasizes the good and evil of human nature by providing his characters with both good and evil qualities. The evolution of the ways of life through generations is reflected into the novel by the ideas of his characters. Although Hester and Dimmesdale have sinned, they are able to reach redemption through the author’s acceptance of human nature as a whole.

As for Dimmesdale, the revealing of his secret as well as the love and acceptance from both Hester and Pearl allow him to reach peace through his death.
It was because of Mitty’s imagination that his wife had such acrimony with him. “ ‘It’s one of your days. I wish you’d let Dr. Renshaw look you over.’ ” is what Mrs. Mitty tells Walter. By telling them this what she is really saying is that she believes his imagination needs to be fixed, she thinks that his visions are an interruption to their life and nothing more than something she can send to the doctor and get fixed. Walter Mitty would most likely hear similar words from his wife every time he had a fantasy, over time this would make him start to think that it was something that needed to be fixed as well, instead of learning to love his gift.
Tesher Zafrin Summer Reading Slaughterhouse Five – Kurt Vonnegut 1. In Chapter One, the writer goes to O’Hare’s house to find some inspiration for the book. Having been discussing the war for a while now, he (and the reader) notices that O’Hare’s wife seems to be upset. Kurt Vonnegut 7% (I read the book on a kindle) “She was moving all over the house opening and shutting doors, even moving furniture around to work off anger.” O’Hare insists that it has nothing to do with the writer yet it clearly does and soon his wife snaps, and explains herself. Kurt Vonnegut 8% “Well, I know, she said.
This reveals that he has a sense of remorse for at least some of his actions, particularly the pain he caused Sonia. The narrator also says that he will show Sonia love to try and redeem himself (527), which shows that he is willing and apt to change in order to make up for all the suffering that he has caused Sonia. If Raskolnikov actually is looking for redemption, it seems to be an attempt at impressing Sonia to try and ensure that he does not harm her any more than he already has. At the very end of Crime and Punishment, Raskolnikov reads Lazarus again, as he once had Sonia read it to him. This story tells a tale of renewal and rebirth, which seems to be a goal of Raskolnikov’s at this point in his
Author’s writing way of telling about Georgiana was very good, but he must have given something about her character as well. I think the way he explains the spot on Georgiana was the best way to attract the readers because the reader gets some imagination in his mind. The birthmark seems good to many people but not for his husband. The author in this way wants to say that the thing that when some do not have a thing then he likes that but when we get those things, then we do not feel comfortable with them and we want some improvement. Aylmer is the philosopher and that is why he always thinks the things should be just perfect.
The literary criticism I chose for the Heart of Darkness focuses on how is “easier to give good advice than to take it.” This criticism was written by Theodore Dalrymple, who is a doctor and provided an example of how he would prescribed his patients an act that they should do to improve their life and they would nod and say they would. At first, one believes they would take measures, but they would not. This he related to this book by demonstrating that is difficult to change individuals but it more difficult to change nations and even more cultures. Darkness (and light) is the main motif and he tells, not directly, that the characters are stuck in the darkness. In their setting and how hard it will be to change the minds of individuals
