Boxer was the first animal to wake up and the last animal to sleep. He worked day and night restlessly under the guidance of Napoleon. He was the greatest supporter of animal farm and Animalism, the ideology that runs the animal farm. However, he had to sacrifice his own animal right for the sake of animal farm and the better life of all of us. Also, he was loyal retainer of Napoleon.
Boxer is also shown lending his strength/time for the good of the farm when building the windmill. Likewise, he is a significant military asset who is loyal to Napoleon. His mottos and work ethic inspired the rest of the animals, foremost influencing many. Because of Boxer’s lack of intelligence,
“Thornton’s doubt was strong in his face, but his fighting spirit was aroused- the fighting spirit that soars above odds, fails to recognize the impossible, and is deaf to all save the clamor for battle” (52). Buck does the impossible and breaks the sled from the frozen snow and pulls one thousand pounds one hundred yards all by himself. John Thornton wins $1,600 dollars- which is around $46,000 today- and sets off into the wilderness with his accomplices Pete, Hans, Buck, and his other dogs to look for a lost mine. Buck accomplished this tremendous act out of love for John Thornton. “As Thornton got to his feet, Buck seized his mittened hand between his jaws, pressing in with his teeth and releasing slowly, half-reluctantly.
Throughout the novel, Boxer is the main workforce of the farm. During the building of the windmill on the farm, Boxer would awake early so he could get more work done. Even though the plan of building a windmill fails, Boxer continues to have a herculean work ethic even though he is of lesser intelligence than the other animals. The failure of the windmill symbolizes the failure of Joseph Stalin’s Five-Year Plan. Boxer represents the common working class that unwittingly accepts their base existence, because they believe by hard work they will get ahead and that their leaders will protect them (“Overview”).
That though the Earth is ‘excellent’ and ‘majestical’ place of great beauty, he cannot embrace or see that beauty because ‘foul and pestilent vapors’ are preventing him from being able to see the beauty. The beauty, which all men are granted access to, is now intangible to him, an allusion to his Uncle killing his father for the throne. He now suffers conflicting emotions due to the evil existing in a godly figure such as man and how the world, that was once radiant is now corrupt in his
The german soldiers did not know Billy or Weary but they were fated to that would have tragic results.” Consequently, Vonnegut drives his point with the final event of Roland Weary’s death. Vonnegut absently writes “ Roland Weary died of Gangrene caused by his mangled feet.” (Vonnegut 79) Roland Weary, the “hero”, died of a foot infection and was tossed out of a train. Vonnegut included this detail to show that no matter where you go or what lies you buy into you can’t escape the reality you
“I done a real bad thing,” knowing he has done something George would be upset about, Lennie runs away to the place George told him to go if he was in trouble. When George finds him, he knows he has to kill him because he didn’t want anyone else to shoot him or let him live miserably in an asylum. Once he’s gone, so is the dream. The irony is the two men worked so hard yet they never accomplished their dream. Once Lennie is killed, the dream is completely over.
He did not realize his flaws like arrogance, having a bad temper, and selfishness. Once Tiresias gets it through Oedipus’s thick skull that he was the one who killed King Laius, he takes one of the brooches from Jocasta’s dress and stabs his eyes out. After he blinds himself physically he feels pity for his two daughters, saying that no one will ever love them because they are the product of incest, he also says that his sons will make due because they are strong men. His downfall was that he was way to arrogant to put two and two together, and realize that he was the murderer whom need to either be exiled or killed, the prophecy that Jocasta and Laius got was the same that Oedipus got. After Oedipus is exiled Creon takes his place and becomes King of Thebes.
He conjures, “Could he be…the murderer of my brother? No sooner did that idea cross my imagination, than I became convinced of its truth” (Shelley 69). The creator does not analyze the facts or alternatives and instead assumes his own creation murdered his brother because it was the first thought that crossed his mind. As an extreme narcissist, Frankenstein believes he is always right and does not consider any alternatives. Although it may be argued that Frankenstein is correct because his creation did in fact kill William, his approach and thought process is still illogical and prolific of a narcissist.
In Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, it scrutinizes the punishments when a man creates life, and plays the role of God. Victor Frankenstein, is at fault for the creature’s actions. Victor was looking for some honor and triumph, but when he accomplished his experiment, not only did it bring terror to Victor, but to the whole world. The monster never learned right from wrong and was never raised correctly, his first moment of life, all he experienced was the fear in Victor's emotion, and was abandoned right from the start. Victor selfishly isolated himself from society and ran away from his responsibilities which caused destruction to the people Victor cared for and loved deeply.
