Although they do share a few similarities, such as in both instances their friends and family get involved and trickery and deception are used in both positive and negative ways, one engages the reader in a much simpler way than the other. At the beginning of the play, we are introduced to Hero, the daughter of the Governor of Messina, and Count Claudio, a young lord of Florence. When Count Claudio is first introduced, he is an intelligent man who loves the feeling of battle. After being introduced to Hero, however, he immediately has a liking for her and his actions are being lead by love. In the play, Count Claudio states, “In mine eye, she is the sweetest lady that ever I looked on”(1.1.183-184).
“Too polite to object,” Gatsby is inclusive to these people who are lower than him and Daisy is disgusted that, revealing that she, like Tom, also believes in the strict maintenance of social barriers. Daisy wants to remain isolated from the other social classes because she wants to retain her power and stability and wealth. For Daisy, it is okay to like the party on paper because it supports the idealistic view of Gatsby, but when she is confronted by the real life party and her superior status hinges on the decisions she makes, she gets caught up in her own self-interest. In the end, Daisy disgust of the party shows that she too has adopted Tom’s beliefs of exclusion and
Although Jackson’s The Lottery and Vonnegut’s Harrison Bergeron are based in two different time periods and settings, both convey similar criticisms that apply to our own lives. These criticisms include extreme conformity, lack of historical knowledge, and obedience to authority, all of which could ultimately lead to our demise. Lottery - a process or thing whose success or outcome is governed by chance. In The Lottery, the lottery is setup so that everyone has a fair and equal chance of becoming the victim, not even the children are safe. Tessie, a popular housewife of the town, ran a little late to the gathering and cracked a joke
In this short story, after the Hutchinson family gets drawn, Tessie Hutchinson is declared “winner” of the lottery. Her prize is that she is stoned to death.This lottery happens because the town doesn’t want to upset the tradition. The text states, “ ‘Well, now,’ Mr. Summers said soberly, ‘guess we better get started, get this over with so’s we can go back to work. (p. 19, lines 169-171).’ ” Mr. Summers is stated as a “round-faced, jovial man” on page 15, lines 52-53. It seems that he doesn’t enjoy the lottery because he is described as sober.
He would be better off if he remained with his brothers because he would be happy, the fact that they truly care about Pony and his well-being, and he would be with people who would go to great lengths to protect him. Staying with Darry is a better choice than being put in a boys’ home because with his brothers, he would be with people who truly love and care about him. Although being put in a boys home seems appealing, Ponyboy would never be happy being separated from his brothers. You can see this when Ponyboy says “ I had taken the long way around, but I was finally home. To stay”(99).
The elders did not think so. The elders had been participating in the lottery their whole life. This is a very strange thing to me. If I grew up with that, I would think it would be normal too, but from the outside it seems like the worst thing in the world. I felt badly for these elders.
The theme of shamelessness in a male-dominated society runs throughout “The Lottery,” not just during its horrible ending, and especially becomes obvious in the villagers’ lack of respect for life. Through the words of the male villagers, Jackson shows they feel no shame for what is about to happen. Specifically, the men show no shame in how they talk down to the women and express superiority. In one example, Clyde Dunbar is unable to draw, so Mrs. Dunbar decides to draw for him. Mr. Summers says to her, “‘Wife draws for her husband’ [...] ‘Don’t you have a grown boy to do it for you’
Showing us his form of enslavement is his gambling problem. His virtues of enthusiasm and gratitude overshadow his form of enslavement because of the importance of each one. His first virtue of enthusiasm reveal his value to William when he uses it to introduce William for his matches, convincing everyone that William is one of the best in the world. His second virtue of gratitude is expressed at the end of the movie when he is around his friends and acknowledging each one of them by hugging them, showing us that he deeply cares and are thankful for them and their friendship. Making his virtues kill his form of enslavement causing him to be a better
They are free from the label of the weird immigrants and now are popular and interactive children. For example, one of the sons is a star baseball player and others have the ability to turn garbage into a beauty. “When Strangers Came To Town” story demonstrates the importance of acceptance in order to obtain their freedom to what they want without the fear of being judged for their actions. When people accept others for the way they are, one does not have to act differently
Another mockingbird in the story is Boo Radley. The children at first see him as this scary monster, but after showing them kindness the kids see him as kind hearted, and gentle. Much like a mockingbird; from that they learned just like a book, you can’t judge someone by what you hear, or see. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee gives readers a chance to see how racism in the deep south turned into injustice and leads to the killing of innocent minorities. By a young age many were taught that killing was very bad, and that the killing of the innocent is worst, but other than that this lesson can not be taught.
