Dom Casmurro is narrated in the first person narrative by the self-proclaimed protagonist Bento, nicknamed Dom Casmurro for his stubborn nature. The story is told solely from his perspective and therefore automatically creates a biased view of the events that come to pass in the novel. The flawed narrator (Bento) writes the story from his point of view completely muting out the opinions and speech that do not directly support his case in order to rally sympathy and build trust between himself and the reader. Despite the fact that all we have to believe is Bento’s thoughts and what he writes down, because of Machado’s writing technique we are able to see what Bento tries to do, which is to play the victim in the story. Driven by jealousy and
Here, Chavez wanted to find a means to support the important social value of equality and justice against the political institutions that turned a blind eye for Hispanics under the Bracero Program. To put it simply, “La Causa” was never founded on the basis of being a typical labor union. Rather, it was a political movement that advocated for the respect and dignity of Hispanics, who demanded that they deserved the same rights and pay as any other American in the country.

Monsieur and Madame arrive on the battlefield to cheer up their son with a picnic. Even though the war is dangerous, they come to join a picnic happily. Moreover, there would be a discussion how beliefs affect people in the period of time the play was written.

He presents a logical argument when he says, “I was born free as Caesar; so were you: We both have fed as well, and we can both Endure the winter's cold as well as he.” Brutus, Cassius and Caesar were all raised on the same social status and have been through as much as him. It may not be a statistic, but it is definitely an undeniable fact. It’s saying they were raised the exact same, so Caesar is no godlier than them. This helps convince Brutus because he needs the facts to feel as if he is doing the right thing, to feel as if his feelings of worry about Caesar being crowned is not unsubstantiated, to feel like it is necessary to turn against his
He is said to look tall, and skinny with red hair which turned white. He learned about navigating, and how to sail the sea by traveling the Mediterranean as a young boy. He did have 4 siblings, two were left behind in Italy, and the other two were his brothers Diego and Bartholomew. Christopher Columbus married a woman named Felipa Moniz Perestrelo.
