This is again indicative of her sense of death, but also of her psychic energies, as she is able to predict the deaths of people who are somehow connected to her. The soldier in this extract is a character who is mentioned throughout the first three sections of this novel as Freud’s son, whom Lisa has her erotic encounters with, thus reinforcing the life and death instincts further. Life and death are important in the novel, as they clearly associate strongly with the Holocaust. The idea of creation of life through sex is coupled with death through the drives, and it reveals to the reader the fragile nature of life in the concentration camps, as life was so delicate, and so easily taken away in various horrific ways, in such large numbers. It reduces the victims to a primitive nature, due to the dehumanisation they experienced.
In the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, the themes of betrayal, loneliness and helplessness all contribute to the meaning of the pain one feels when they can’t find meaning in life. For example, the theme of betrayal can hurt others is present in the novel, “Unable to endure the aspect of the being I had created, I rushed out of the room, and continued a long time traversing my bedchamber.” (Shelley, 35) When someone is betrayed they can feel attacked on an emotional level, since they no longer have a friend with them. Just like how Victor Frankenstein immediately left the monster he created. After being betrayed it can be harder for someone to trust others since they have just been left alone.
Specifically, Burns wished to highlight the systematic racism inherent in American society that allowed this case to occur as it did. Stemming from years of America’s racial unrest, Burns argues that American society failed the Central Park Five. In the documentary, historian Craig Steven Wilder, delivers this haunting statement towards the closing minutes of the film. “I felt ashamed, actually, for New York, and I also felt extremely angry because their innocence never got the attention that their guilt did…I want us to remember what happened that day and be horrified by ourselves because it really is a mirror on our society (Wilder).” Burns latches onto Wilder’s statement, emphasizing the racial tension which the case highlighted.
After learning about three different compositions built about the effects of war, it has become indisputable that war leaves a terrible footprint on everyone involved, especially the minorities who are persecuted. The three sources I will discuss are Daughter from Danang, When the Emperor was Divine, and Bridge of Spies. In Daughter from Danang, Heidi’s hostility and resentment toward her birth family and culture shows the effects of war on an adopted child. Reading When the Emperor was Divine, and learning how a war can separate a father from his two kids illustrates the devastating effects of a persecuted family. Finally, watching Bridge of Spies and witnessing the terrible deeds committed during the cold war (it wasn’t even a war!), affects even people who don’t want any part of it.
Using hatred as a way to rally the German population to their cause, the Nazi Party was able to advance the elimination of Jews. The anger and hate of the Jews induced fear in others who were afraid for their own safety. Fear of the Jews themselves allowed a path to anger, which would lead to hatred and the suffering of others. Yoda’s quote from Star Wars, “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger.
Adolf Hitler’s goal was to purify the German race. The holocaust includes dehumanization, organization, polarization. The Holocaust ruined the lives of so many innocent people as well as leaving a horrific dent in history by being the worst genocide in the world. The victims of the holocaust were taken to the concentration camps by train.
The Holocaust Concentration Camps: Auschwitz The Holocaust was a horrid experience. The Holocaust came about because Adolf Hitler was upset over the loss of World War I. Hitler blamed the Jews for Germany’s loss in World War I, and he wanted to take over Germany, with that came him thinking he had to get rid of all the Jewish people. So after the loss of World War I, he tried and succeeded with the extermination of most of the Jews.
Who was I kidding, this would be a lot harder than I thought. A surge of discouragement took over my mind as I heard of the other students who were planning to apply. I was starting to doubt myself more than ever before. I wrote my essays and had my mom read them. She advised me to change some things and I did just that.
The characterization of Elizabeth on her bridal boer after the monster slays her is showcasing the disastrous effects of the knowledge Victor gains earlier in the story. Mary Shelley uses imagery and direct characterization to fully portray this terrible event. Victor describes the scene as he thinks, “She was there, lifeless and inanimate, thrown across the bed, her head hanging down and her pale and distorted features half covered by her hair”(173). Later on, one can see the negative effects of the deaths of her and most of his loved ones, his suffering because of knowledge. When Shelley characterizes Victor, she uses imagery and descriptive language to show how damaged Victor is.
Upon reading this poem one notices that the title ‘To the doctor who treated the raped baby and who felt such despair’ is long. Most titles of poems are short and get straight to the point. The title itself is unusual in that it hooks the reader causing curiosity of a morbid title thus the reader reads the poem. ‘Raped baby’ is in all its sense a shock to the reader. It describes a horrific and monstrous crime.
For me the most astonishing aspect of this novel is that our loved ones, they make mistakes, they make bad calls. No reasons can ever justify those. It will affect us, it will destroy us. But it’s our decision if we’re going to let it haunt us forever. It’s a deeply emotion read for me, that has had me all choked up.
The Nazis did this because they discriminate and hate the Jews. “German authorities established camps to handle the masses of people arrested as alleged subversives.” (www.ushmm.org) Germany blamed the Jews for their loss of World War I. “Concentration camps held two purposes, these purposes were to demoralize and dehumanize the prisoners.” (www.owlspace-ccm.rice.edu) The Nazis tortured them and made them break on the inside.
As a result of her comprehensive definition on white privilege and endorsement to her academic background, McIntosh begins to persuade her audience that unearned white privilege does exist. The first couple of paragraphs of her essay she gives to define white privilege, so it is recognizable that this definition is necessary for her essay and her argument.
The story Dark Alliance: The CIA, The Contras, and The Crack Cocaine Explosion by Gary Webb are very interesting. The theme of the story is how the CIA used contras to bring cocaine into the impoverished areas of Los Angeles. The conflict is how the CIA used cocaine to make black people look negative in the world, while the CIA used the money to make them look better. The exposition of the story is how the cocaine came to America. The tone of the story is serious because it talks about the CIA and the cocaine explosion.
