The execution of the aforementioned king marked the beginning of a period where public execution was standard and tranquility vanished, or the Reign of Terror. Threats against the country were insinuated which brought about malicious methods in an effort to exterminate the threats, which, like the country itself, revolutionized the French’s ideals. The Reign of Terror was not justified.

The classic historical fiction book, A Tale of Two Cities, written by Charles Dickens includes many examples of figurative language throughout the storyline.

In addition, La Guillotine is used frequently; hence, everyone grows familiar with it and sees La Guillotine as an everyday object. During these events, Charles Darnay is imprisoned for being an emigrant and one of many who will be sentenced to death via La Guillotine.

1-7-17 Tale of Two Cities: Similarities Between Book and Novel A novel written by Charles Dickens in 1985 was an outstanding novel in which was basically about the craziness that was going on in France and England from the start of the year 1775. The novel focused on people 's lives like Lucie Manette, Charles Darnay, Sydney Carton, Dr. Manette, Jerry Cruncher, Madame Defarge, Mrs. Pross, and many more. In their lives the world was very corrupt, many people were dying, and were poor.

For those reasons it has encouraged me to like the book and the various ways she wrote it. Ayn Rand was able to go through the story and gradually transform collectivism to individualism which was spectacular. She was able to make it so at the beginning, it was straight collectivism, slowly developing into individualism. I genuinely like at the end how individualism is the key aspect to the story; how “equality 7-2521” is able to discover himself and who he could be. He states “I wonder, for it is hard for me to conceive how men who knew the word "I," could give it up and not know what they had lost”(page 96?).

After lots of Poe’s closest treasures were lost because of Tuberculosis, he wrote a story inspired by Tuberculosis. The Masque of Red Death, is a story based on the character Prince Prospero, that was very daring a threw a large party, despite the red death being the air. In the Masque of red Death, it states, “Then, summoning the wild courage of despair, a throng of the revellers at once threw themselves into the black apartment, and, seizing the mummer, whose tall figure stood erect and motionless within the shadow of the ebony clock, gasped unutterable horror at finding the grave cerements and corpse-like mask which they handled with so violent a rudeness, untenanted by any tangible form.” (Poe) This quote is describing the red death as frightening figure, going to kill everyone because there was no cure for the red death. In Poe’s life many people were captured by the red death and were not able to survive, such as Virginia, one of his closest lovers.

The particular weapon or better yet biological microorganism that I have chosen to outline this week is that of a particularly nasty strain of disease which has wiped out an unknown multitude of people throughout history. This infectious disease, known as the genus Orthopoxvirus, from the the family Poxviridae and subfamily of chordopoxvirinae, is potentially believed to have laid to waste whole civilizations of people. It also goes by the name “Red Plague”, or in more common parlance, “The Smallpox Virus.” Historically, this virus made its way to Europe sometime between the 5th and 7th centuries. According to Reidel (2005), “It was frequently epidemic during the Middle Ages. Smallpox continued to be a problem throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, affecting populations on a large scale.” It was one of the primary annihilator’s of the native indigenous population of the Americas during the first arrivals of the Europeans who brought it with them.
