THE TEMPEST – SHAKESPEARE 1. How does Shakespeare indicate the level of chaos in the first scene of Act I? This opening scene certainly contains spectacle, in the form of the howling storm tossing the little ship about and threatening to kill the characters before the play has even begun. The play begins with a “noise of thunder and lightning”. The first word, “Boatswain!” immediately indicates that the scene is the deck of a ship, and the characters rush frantically in and out, often with no purpose.
It out muscled the storm and reached its destination. The Monitor saw the Merrimac destroy the other two Union ships the Congress and The Columbia. After the Merrimac took out the final Union ship, the Minnesota, the Monitor got ready to battle. The Merrimac hit the first blow. It hit the Monitor preety hard.
Odysseus says, “I drew it from the coals and my four fellows / gave me a hand, lugging it near the Cyclops / as more than natural force nerved them; straight / forward they sprinted, lifted it, and rammed it / deep in his crater eye, and I leaned on it / turning it as a shipwright turns a drill / in planking, having men below to swing / the two-handled strap that spins it in the groove” (Homer 479). Another example of him being brave is when he faces the suitors. Odysseus says that the suitors will pay in blood for what they did to his property and wife. The fight begins and Odysseus and his men get support of Athena. Odysseus and his men show no mercy and kill all the suitors.
A Watery Grave -Sophie Millard “No! Please don’t!” My voice cracked and I broke down into hysteric sobs. A wave of cachinnating through the crowd of men, that stared at me with icy glares. I glanced down at the cold, dark waves crashed against the side of the ship.
he thundered out, 'now who are you? Where did you sail from, over the running sea-lanes? Out on a trading spree or roving the waves like pirates, sea-wolves raiding at will, who risk their lives to plunder other men?'” Odysseus and his crew become frightened, but despite this, Odysseus shows the heroic trait of bravery by answering back confidently, “The hearts inside us shook, terrified by his rumbling voice and monstrous hulk.
On May3 the Birmingham jail was filling rapidly and Commissioner Connor, made changes to police tactics to keep protesters businesses downtown. While children were marching and singing Connor ordered that Birmingham’s firefighters uses hoses, set at a very high level to be turned on the children marching. The power of the hoses ripped young boy’s shirts off, and pushed young women on top of cars. The blast of the water rolled children down the streets nd sidewalks. As children were being hosed upon bystanders began to throw rocks and bottles at law enforcement.
This is shown first through the taunting of the Cyclops. As stated above, Odysseus taunts the Cyclops who shows that he is more than capable of wrecking their ship and the people on it. Besides that, the crew begs for Odysseus to be sensible and stop with the taunting, but they were unable to “bring [his] fighting spirit round.” The only reason why he does stop is because the Cyclops eventually makes a big enough wave with the top of a mountain thrown in the water to push their vessel to another island (9. 530-608). Due to the pleading of his crew, this shows that Odysseus is inconsiderate because they could have easily died and left their families behind.
pink smoke. Afterwards, the crew is suddenly attacked and enter the foggy area, similar to how the scene was in Heart of Darkness. As they attack the natives, bullets are constantly emanating light on what it hits, shooting the ship, seen through a close-up shot of the boat. One of the bullets causes Clean to be hit. Clean is a black soldier and a crewmate to Willard to help them search for Kurtz.
People tend to always want to be in control and have power over everything, but when evil sets in it becomes a tragic story just like "The Tempest". In the play "The Tempest", written by William Shakespeare, tells a story about struggle for power. A terrible storm wrecks a ship on what is thought to be a deserted island. On this island there are several people who do not discover each other till the end. In the midst of all of the chaos that is approaching, Prospero, knows everyone who is in the island.
“The people of the great vessel were wicked: when we had been shipped, they took away all the small pieces of cloth which were on our bodies, and threw them into the water, then they took chains and tethered two together. Every morning they had to take the man, and throw them into the water,” (First Hand Accounts Case Study). This quote suggests that the crew expressed little sympathy to slaves. This is demonstrated in the novel by Paula Fox The Slave Dancer.
December 6, 1917, 9:05am- Halifax was devastated as the military relief ship SS Imo and the SS Mont-Blanc collided in Bedford Basin. Spectators gathered as the burning Mont-Blanc, with a cargo full of explosives, drifted towards Halifax. Halifax’s firefighting boat Patricia rushed to the scene as a small tugboat did what it could to prevent the accident. Unfortunately, all the efforts could not disarm the bomb that was in the shipload. As Mont-Blanc floated towards Halifax, and citizens gathered to watch, Mont-Blanc exploded sending rubble in all directions.
On the USS Indianapolis, a tragic incident happened on the sinking. Soldiers lost their lives in many ways. The torpedo, drowning, sharks, dehydration, starvation, and drinking saltwater. Only three hundred and seventeen men survived the catastrophe. Today I am writing an essay about Why they died and how they could have prevented it.
Three somewhat distinct forces shape the lives of men and women in The Odyssey: fate, the interventions of the gods, and the actions of the men and women themselves. Fate is the force of death in the midst of life, the destination each man or woman will ultimately reach. Though the gods seem all-powerful, "not even the gods/ can defend a man, not even one they love, that day/ when fate takes hold and
