Is she really at blame for her actions and should she be punished? Believing that she is truly insane this would entail that she is completely innocent and therefore not to be punished. Thesis: Medea’s insanity which led her to killing her children suggests she let her emotions take control of her proving she is not at fault for her actions.

Comparison of the “Psycho” and “A Rose for Emily” The Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock and A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner are works with different plots and endings. The movie is focused on a maniac, who recreated an image of his mother to kill visitors. Norman Bates killed own mother because he thought she “betrayed” him, and used her personality in his further crimes. The man was caught and his actions were revealed long before his death. Faulkner’s story demonstrates totally different plot: there is an own main character, her mental disorder and its consequences for the society.
Under the pressure of the court Mary breaks and says while pointing at proctor “My name, he want my name. ‘I’ll murder you’ he says, ‘if my wife hangs! We must go and over throw the court,’ he says!” (194). She completely changes her stance and prosecutes Proctor because she is scared of being dissent and wants to conform to everyone else. John Proctor the star of the show is under the most pressure in my opinion.
One example of new found problems with society are in the lines “Keep track of the errors of our forgetfulness; the fog steals our/ children while we sleep” (Harjo 12-13). The fog is a symbol for corruption of the future generation. While “we”, the adults, are sleeping, meaning being unaware and ignorant of what’s happening; the children are getting corrupted by the fog of social media and peer pressure. Fog is used to represent corruption because people get lost and disoriented in heavy fog and it is often portrayed as an ominous entity in film making and narratives. This all leads back to the main point of the world becoming corrupt and needing to be led into the next era; to do this, mapmakers have to step up and guide humanity.

Orwell’s contexts stem from the post world war two pessimisms where rebellions were treated with torture and incarceration which is reflected in the novel. Rebellion in 1984 begins with winston unleashing all his fury by setting pen to paper using repetition of “DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER” to emphasise the ultimate crime of rebellion winston had committed, “thoughtcrime”. The foreshadowing in “thoughtcrime does not entail death: thoughtcrime IS death” highlights that winston will eventually face the repercussions of perpetrating such crimes in “room 101”. Winston’s burdened emotions compels him to join a “secret organisation” which is exemplified in the contradictory statement “we are enemies of the party” because Winston joins a party, to rebel against another therefore contradicting his own belief of being an individual however, unlike metropolis, winston’s acts of rebellion do not end triumphantly. Therefore, It is evident that in a dictatorial society, individuals feel the need to rebel as an outlet for their
At the age of seventeen, she disappeared into the world to fend for herself and without a plan, succumbed to drugs, theft, and lived an unstable life, attempting suicide more once. (Egan, 196) It’s not a surprise that at one point Sasha took items in order to survive, and later ensued into her raging kleptomania, from which she obtained self-gratification and boosted her self-esteem in order to fill the void and cope with her father leaving. For each item taken, she indeed gained something instantaneous, but kept fueling and deepening the void, losing more of herself and her true potential, both individually and collectively. For every stolen item, there was a justification in Sasha’s mind, a valid reason
