The lord was so boastful and self centered that he couldn't stand ugly things, even if they were pretty before, so he demoted people and hide possessions that were no longer magnificent. The beautiful, magnificent drake the lord had captured became dull and “ he refused to to release the drake, ordering that the cage be put out of sight so he would be no longer be annoyed by the birds sad appearance”. (10). His overwhelming desire for more beautiful items rule by his decisions in the empire. The lord's greed brought loneliness, anger, and the thought he has the power to rule over
Out of all the birds in the Amazon, the parrot is probably the most well-known because of its ability to mimic noises or words. Many people see this as intelligent speaking, but it 's actually not speaking at all. The author of the short story by Robert Olen Butler, "Jealous Husband Returns in Form of Parrot," had an interesting thought: to write a story in the perspective of a parrot. He imagined an entire story from the viewpoint of a bird that had come back from his other life as a loyal but jealous husband, to a newfound life a pet store copycat. Based on this unique point of view, the story is different from a story told by a human.
This quote, from Brutus, means that his own thoughts and conflicts overwhelm him. In addition, his thoughts and conflicts refer to his idea that if Caesar becomes king, that he will end up harming or endangering Rome. Brutus believes killing Caesar, results to the only solution to help and protect Rome, which relates back to his conflict. Overall, Brutus’ internal conflict involves deciding to kill Caesar, or not, because he does not necessarily want to kill Caesar, but sees it as the only way to protect Rome and its people. His love for Rome and the Roman people proves greater than his love for Caesar, who he somewhat looks to as a friend.
Simon is brave when he talks to the Lord of the Flies in his imagination: “‘You are a silly little boy,’ said the Lord of the Flies, ‘just an ignorant, silly little boy.’ Simon moved his swollen tongue but said nothing. ‘Don’t you agree?’ said the Lord of the Flies, ‘Aren’t you just a silly little boy?’Simon answered in the same silent voice.”” (Page 143). From this quote, one can see that Simon is brave because the Lord of the Flies is talking to him and he is not scared. This is brave because the other little boys would have run away but Simon stays and lets the Lord of the Flies finish talking. It is also brave because the Lord of the Flies is taunting him and Simon is not fighting back.
Achilles is seen to be full of wrath in the beginning of the book. This wrath is not caused only because Agamemnon takes his prize of war. He is angry at the system which allows Agamemnon to play around with other people’s honors and the system which allows him to decide who gets how much honor. In other words, Achilles does not like the idea that someone else can decide what happens to his honor, despite him deserving most of the honor in relation to how much he contributes in war. As the story proceeds, Achilles seems to contradict himself a lot, and the concept of honor helps us understand this better.
To start, the very idea of a “Catch-22” or the idea that a set of rules can lead people in an infinite unescapable loop is absurd. Yossarian, a Captain in the United States Air Force, attempts to escape the gruesome war by proving that he is crazy. By attempting to do this, however, he proves that he is not crazy, as no sane man would ever want to stay and fight in the war. The ridiculousness and absurdity of this situation, which reappears in situations like Major Major’s “you can only see me when I am not here,” is humerous simply because the reader cannot relate to the situation and finds it rediculous. Behind this humor, however, is a deeper meaning.
No thought of the future. Just run blind the first chance he saw” (Lee 322). The fact that Scout writes, that Tom was just a typical negro man, show that Tom symbolizes a mockingbird because just from being that minority color, in his time, people thought of him differently, not as an individual but a group. Finally when Tom was blamed for raping Mayella, even thought everyone knew the truth, and when he did something to help her out out of the goodness of his heart, but because he was of different status and race backfires, Toms status as a symbolic mockingbird becomes
A Victoria-described leader is held to higher standard of morality with exponentially more access to necessary informative sources. In comparison, required obedience to authority and inaccessibility of knowledge gain soldiers the defence of what is invincible ignorance. Soldiers were unable to access the same information as a leader. As a result, the true meaning of a conflict was left in a moral limbo for soldiers. However, if a man found proof of unjust activity during conflict, then it was recommended he stop fighting.
Mindful communication is one of the most vital parts of a relationship. Without thoughtful conversation and sharing one’s emotions, a relationship is destined for failure and discontent. While it is not uncommon for a relationship to end as a result of this specific dissatisfaction, it is an everyday problem that is typically ignored. Miscommunication is a part of life but unfortunately even small misunderstandings can be cause for disaster. In Jealous Husband Returns in Form of Parrot by Robert Olen Butler, this theme is conveyed perfectly through the eyes of an interesting and oddly relatable human-turned-bird.
Dolphus Raymond, Tom Robinson, and Boo Radley are all blameless people that are harmed and or judged based on factors that are misunderstood by others. It’s a sin to kill a mockingbird, innocent creatures that are only trying to bring joy to the town, but people do not understand what they had done until it
