1.-(A)The novel “Of Mice and Men” is a tragedy because it is about a basically good person,Lennie,who suffers a fall brought about by something in his nature therefore provoking emotions of pity and fear to the reader. Lennie is a basically good person because his actions didn’t had any cruel or evil intentions. For instance, on page 9 and 10, when Lennie and George are talking, George tells Lennie that he always kills mice and he answers “I´d pet´em,and pretty soon they bit my fingers and I pinched their heads a little and then he was dead—because they was so little.” He was a really innocent person, however his nature and actions got him in a lot of problems. For example, when he is petting dead mice throughout the book, touching the girl´s red dress and touching soft things in general, all these events lead to the final event which provokes emotions of pity and fear to the reader. 1.-(B) The novel “Of Mice and Men” is not a tragedy because the protagonists weren’t important people to society.
Meaning people are born, they grow up and then die, but the whole time they are careless individuals. “She laughed his joy she cried his grief” (Cummings Line 14)This piece of imagery reveals the love between “she” and “he” , they both are supportive of each other through good and bad. Cummings included symbolism in the poem that contributes to the theme. For example, “with up so floating many bells down” (Cummings Line 24)the bells in the poem symbolized a sense of hope for all the carelessness between people. Maybe it could all diminish as people learn to care for others.
He explains it with “ The fun you have in the Dark Playground isn't actually fun, because it's completely unearned, and the air is filled with guilt, dread, anxiety, self-hatred — all of those good procrastinator feelings.” According to Urban, all procrastinators has a guardian angel, which he calls “The panic monster”. He shows up when you are very close to the deadline and there’s a risk of for example public embarrassment. So he makes you finish the assignment. He got a lot of mails from listeners who related a lot, but they were actually very sad because what the monkey had done to them. Because “The panic monster” only shows up when there are deadlines, yet in real life, there are many situations that don’t have deadlines.
Once he almost squeezed all the air out of him he was flung back onto the ground. When Scout heard a man breathing hard a coughing hard he went towards the person and asked who he was and there was no answer. That person that caused Bob Ewell to go flying back onto the ground was Boo Radley. No one ever sees boo he just lives in his parents house, everyone thinks of him as a monster that wants to kill or hurt everyone even though he is a heart warming normal person. The book, To Kill a Mockingbird, has the theme of there is always good in bad and bad in good, its shown in the paragraphs above.
At first, Jem was easily startled. After he went through the consequence he changed into a more patient person, but he still wasn’t sorry for destroying Ms. Dubose’s bushes. In Maycomb there is a house where an interesting family called the Radleys lives in. Scout and Jem are both afraid of the Radleys house because of Boo Radley. Rumors say that most crimes are done by him, mostly nocturnal events like mutilated chickens and pets.
Am I right? Nobody protests about them, but on these worthless foxes. Poor fishes… Foxes on the other hand die as soon a hound bite the back of the neck; then shot. Negligible pain. Apparently it’s mediocre to wipe out the fishes since we consume them, but not foxes because we don’t consume them or use their
I would characterize Anne's view of human nature as mixed. At the beginning of the story she thought of the world as a happy place full of peace, but when they go into hiding, and she hears all the news of suffering on the radio, she begins to think of the human race as cruel creatures who only consider themselves. Later on in the story though, when she talks about the attempt that a general made on Hitler's life she said, “At least there are good people who are tired of all this fighting, and just want the war to end.” So at the beginning she thinks that people are “really good at heart.” At the middle she has mixed feelings, sometimes writing about people’s good deeds, sometimes writing about their bad deeds. At the end however, she ends her diary with, “ By becoming want would like to be, what I could be, if... there weren't any people living in the world.” This indicates that Anne believes that she could have a better life if there weren't any other people distracting her, judging her, and creating massive world problems. 3.
The anticipation among the population is gloomy, and there is nothing in the text that points toward a happy outcome, yet the foreshadowing flies over the head of most readers. However, when the readers are finally awakened as the first stone is thrown, the execution of Tessie has begun, and the whole village proceeds to do what is expected of them. The irony of this story lies in the title and the diversion from the meaning we associate with lottery, except in this instance the winner is actually the loser, and instead of winning a bag of money, they lose their
A great example of a magician is after Sodapop runs off crying because Darry and ponyboys little argument when he was all calm down, Darry and pony made the promise not to fight anymore pony thought to himself “I guess we all just wanted to stay together”(177). Ponyboy has shown his wisdom to us that even though things may seem horrid and there is nothing but darkness there 's always something good even if its small and he wants to share this with those kids that he was thinking about. Another example to show ponyboy has the wisdom of a magician after he read johnny 's note and thought about all the other kids out in the great wide somewhere with problems like his or different and thought “someone should tell their side of the story”(179). Ponyboy has shown his wisdom to us that even though things may seem horrid and there is nothing but darkness there 's always something good even if its small and he wants to share this with those kids that he was thinking
The people were less open and more stuck on this one idea of race, while everyone outside of Maycomb were fine. With this mindset and the growth of everyone outside of Maycomb, they would eventually just be so lost and racism would probably be the end of them. This was like rabies, a disease where the animal can’t get rid of it immediately and has to live with it until they get treated or die with it. Without Atticus, Tim would have to live his final days in misery, but Atticus freed him of the rabies, like he would soon contribute in freeing Maycomb of racism. Then, after talking to Jem and Scout about how people’s views in Maycomb were changing for the better, Maudie Atkinson said, “...it’s just a baby-step, but it’s a step” (289).
Yes, as evil as it sounds the ending of “Dogville was “satisfying”. The ending just felt like a huge sack of ice was finally removed from the audiences back. Yes, shooting the children and their families does not seem like the most humane thing to do, but if one were to see and experience how much of a horrible town it actually was then nobody would have any remorse. Revenge is definitely justified because it was all for the right reasons. What if Grace did feel sorrow for the town, so she simply left and never came back?
It is easy to lose courage when the end result is known, and not in your favor. However, having courage when one knows of the end result establishes pride in him or herself. In How to Kill a Mockingbird, Mrs. Dubose is an elderly neighbor that criticizes Jem, Scout, and their family. However, when Jem destroys her flowers in a fit of rage, he and Scout spend a lot of their time at Mrs. Dubose house as a punishment. Eventually, Mrs. Dubose has a drug free, yet painful, death.
In Fahrenheit 451, information is restricted, and people are given so many useless “‘facts’ they feel stuffed, but absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information”(pg 58). So they’ll be ‘happy’, but it is a fake happiness. Because of this people think they are happy, but commit suicide because they are not. There are also a small few who still read books, but they must keep it a secret, or the books
