The Mirabal sisters were revolutionaries who opposed the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo. During the revolution, they were given the code name “Las Mariposas”, or “the butterflies”. The term “mariposa” suits each sister in a different way. Patria, Dedé, Minerva, and Mate Mirabal each have their one reason to be compared to a butterfly. The nickname “mariposa” shows who the Mirabal sisters are; they transformed from domestic, innocent mothers and wives into brave, defiant martyrs for national freedom.
ZACARIAS, Regina A. BACOM2A 18/03/2016 BAC09: Intro to Film Metaphors: There was a lot of different perspectives in the movie Doubt, and one of them was (though openlty asserted) Father Flynn 's homily about gossip. His analogy of comparing the dispersion of the feathers from the pillow and the woman 's task to gather every single one of it, it was without a doubt a shade towards Sister Aloysius. But to put it simply as to whether we were supposed to know if he did touch the boy or not, we shouldn 't. Sister Aloysius has no use for the “new” church of innovation. One of the recurring symbols in the film is the wind that continually swirls around Sister Aloysius. More than once, Sister Aloysius closes windows to shut out the winds that she complains have “changed,” that she describes as peripatetic, that buffet things around and about.
The Ways Lady Macbeth Lies People fib every single day, consciously and unconsciously. Sometimes the lies are transparent and it is not too difficult to read between the lines to acknowledge the truth. According to Stephanie Ericsson’s The Ways We Lie, there are many subcategories. These include deflection, omission, delusions, stereotypes, dismissal and more. Many of these are present in Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
The play Doubt by John Patrick Shanley is impressively structured play about the very title. It pins two monumental characters against one another over accusations of possible child molestation of an altar boy by a high ranking church official. Sister Aloysius is the principle that accuses Father Flynn of these actions and is relentless in her accusations of Father Flynn even without any hard evidence, but she has no doubt that he is guilty. Doubt is the title of the play and it shows you why it is titled this throughout the play. John Patrick Stanley did not only make a play about doubt, but leaves his readers in doubt themselves after the rollercoaster that is the play is titled after.
The Yankee spiraled down a long line of supposes until he reached the peak by exclaiming, “Suppose the whole building falls down!” Yankee’s statement was an Abuse of a Slippery Slope because he made huge leaps in possibilities from the original scenario of supposing that the old man did not make it to the door in time to see the kid. Saying the unlikely statement of the building falling down does not justify the chances for the old man to make it to the door in time. What he should have done was to insinuate that the event of the man not making it to the door is only a possibility.
John Patrick Shanley's work, Doubt: A Parable, is a thought-provoking play that makes the reader question his or her thoughts. The story takes place in 1964, at St. Nicholas, a Catholic school and church, where accusations against Father Flynn start to arise. Main characters, Sister Aloysius and Father Flynn get into a dispute over Donald Mueller, the first and only black student in the school. The interactions between Aloysius and Flynn creates the question every reader is dying to figure out: is father Flynn guilty of sexual abuse or innocent? Gaining evidence from the play, Doubt: A Parable, I infer that Father Flynn is guilty because of his past and mannerisms.
Have you ever felt doubt in your life? In John Patrick Shanley’s play, Doubt, he says “It is Doubt that changes thing.” His play is about a strict nun, Sister Aloysius, who believes that a priest, Father Flynn, has done something terribly inappropriate to one of the students. Shanley set his play in a Catholic school in the Bronx. Sister Aloysius is the principal of the school, overseeing many teachers, including young Sister James.
Truth Comes From Doubt Doubt may be irrational, but it can also reveal the truth. Throughout John Patrick Shanley’s play Doubt, Sister Aloysius tries to expose the truth about how Father Flynn could be having an inappropriate relationship with Donald Muller. Sister Aloysius becomes aware of this possibly inappropriate relationship after Sister James tells her that Father Flynn had a private meeting with Donald. Then, Sister Aloysius talks to many people to see if her speculations are true, and by doing that, she hopes that the truth will cause Father Flynn to leave St. Nicholas. After reading the play Doubt, I believe that Father Flynn is guilt of having an inappropriate relationship with Donald Muller because of Father Flynn’s behaviors and Sister Aloysius’ conversations with many people.
In his play, Twelfth Night, William Shakespeare has his characters participate in the practice of deception and dishonesty of others - after all, the foundation of Shakespeare’s play resides within a lie. One of the major deceptions in the play is executed by the Illyrian countess, Olivia, as she repeatedly claims to need solitude to mourn her brother’s death in order to avoid Duke Orsino and his obsession towards her. This deception contributes to the meaning of the work as a whole by adding the thematic message, deception and dishonesty is sometimes the better option when it comes to love. From the beginning of the play, Olivia is introduced as the grieving countess that has recently lost a brother.
In the play Doubt, Sister Aloysius uses a Hasty generalization fallacy in efforts to push her mindset onto others. The play opens with Sister James and Sister Aloysius meeting while Sister James' class is in art. Upon realizing where Sister James' 8th graders are, Sister Aloysius responds in disgust. In her mind "art is a waste of time" therefore it is a waste of time for all students. Sister Aloysius is generalizing her evidence of art being useless to fit her argument.
Sister Aloysius is the principle at St. Nicholas catholic school in the Bronx, New York. Sister Aloysius is certain that the relationship between Father Flynn and a young African- American student, Donald Muller has become inappropriate. Sister Aloysius confides in Sister James, a much younger and innocent nun; Sister James is doubtful of Father Flynn’s guilt, but uncertain of his innocence, for the entirety of the play. When watching this play unfold, the audience is truly uncertain about whether to believe Sister Aloysius or Father Flynn. Sister Aloysius can come off as determined, uptight, and rigid.
After having read the whole play, I would say that I can only feel pity for Jo, who seems to be a victim of the negligence by her mother. Jo is an abandoned teenager who does not know what course to give her life, and feels rejected in all senses by Helen. To begin with, the girl is left alone by her mother in every aspect of her life, from the simplest thing as her education to the complex one of giving the right piece of advice or paying attention to what Jo feels and needs. As Helen is a prostitute and seems to worry only about herself, she feels envy for her daughter, who is beautiful and young. Giving this situation, Helen tries to ruin Jo’s life as well as hers has been ruined, taking advantage if every situation to make her daughter notice she is a nuisance to her mother: “You can’t sing, can you?
