Look at her God-given innocence; her soul is so tender; we must protect her, Tituba; the Devil is out and preying on her like a beast upon the mesh of the pure lamb. God will bless you for your help¨. Before this moment, Hale is talking to some ¨children¨ and is very rash about everything that is spoken by them and believed word for word. Hale being naive and very passive, he did not know how to control the situation at hand. Being naive and gullible trapped Hale from being able to rationalize and how later in the play, the hysteria of witches within the town would later convict innocent people to their death.
The tone of Briana Payton’s rhetoric is condescending, demeaning, and arrogant; her ad hominem remarks do little harm to Tal Fortgang and rather serve only to discredit her own contentions. Payton sounds like an angry parent reprimanding an unruly child, “Is that clear? You. Are. Privileged.
Seaver’s tone in the letter mocks Herbert’s arguments. While Coca-Cola’s goal is to defend their own company’s rights, they note that they don’t want confusion between the two products, seeming to be concerned for the book as well. Seaver, turns this against them by saying that they will ensure that salespeople will make sure to confirm that the customer is looking for the book and not a Coca-Cola. This makes Herbert’s argument ineffective by making fun of it and by assuring him that action will be taken to prevent confusion. Furthermore, Herbert says he is worried about the usage or the similar slogans would diminish its effectiveness.
In this strong statement, it’s clear that being smart is seen as unacceptable and disregarded. It being seen as an insult to you if you are intelligent makes you not be intelligent, and fit into the normal, wanted lifestyle that authorities enforced. Beatty also exclaimed to Montag that “Don’t give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology” (Bradbury 58) This gives you a perspective of Philosophy. Making it seem like it’s something dangerous and undesirable. Beatty giving philosophy and sociology a bad connotation, so that Montag is persuaded not to rebel, and society is not in the wrong.
I tell him I don’t desire to work for him, sir” (Miller 1119). Prior to Parris’s death threat, Tituba refuses “compacting with the Devil.” After realizing her life is at stake if she denies it, Tituba confesses to submitting to the Devil and attempts to make herself innocent and to unload this blame, which she had received from Abigail, onto the Devil and even onto others in the community by claiming that they work with Satan. In a panic, she begins to name others in the community that may be able to share in the blame of witchcraft with her and lighten her own punishments. I believe that while what she did was wrong, Tituba has proper justifications for her actions. She acts out of instinct and fear, striving for
Fleur is the character who the audience wanted to know more about, yet Erdrich kept her as a mystery with what she was thinking and believed. Her spirituality is not as hidden as Nanapush but we are still a little unsure what she is thinking. She is known for having powers and transforming into Erdrich does not allow us to hear Fleur’s side in Tracks even though it is centered around her and her
Back in a time where everything is black or white, good or evil, one is either with the church or a witch this leading to the persecution of those against “good”. In the play The Crucible by Arthur Miller the belief that the church is always right and evil is always lurking caused many to die due to fake accusations. The church, wanting to help, begin to kill of those who were considered impure. There is a danger in having a profound belief in something, one becomes close minded and with time carry on actions that contradict that very belief. In Salem, a small town where it is believed that evil souls are roaming, teenage girls are given the authority to determine whether one is possessed with evil spirits.
The villagers fear sin, and the aim of their witch hunts is to purify their microcosm. The main text only hints of hysteria at integers throughout the play. Abigail’s delusions are essential in describing the hysteria rampaging through the village, which may not be fully expressed in the rest of the play. Abigail’s delusions contribute to the indication of her madness, better revealed through the addition of the excluded scene. While Abigail and Proctor are conversing in the woods, Abigail mentions her suffering.
She did not write about great events, like the French Revolution or the Napoleonic Wars, both of which happened during her lifetime. Such forces were remote from the restricted world that she depicts. She wrote about what she knew best: the daily business of social visits, romantic affairs, and matchmaking. Her six major novels (Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion) are now classics of English Literature. In my opinion the country houses are the most familiar landmarks in the setting of these novels.
125). Similarly, workbooks commonly used in synthetic reading programs have been criticised as not providing genuine reading experiences. Dr Andrew Davis suggests that blending sounds, while helpful, does not constitute reading, positing that synthetic phonics approaches afford “an inappropriate plausibility” that blending and reading are one and the same (2014). Emmitt, Hornsby and Wilson concur, stating that “teaching that a letter has a sound is quite misleading; we cannot know the sound a letter has unless it is in meaningful context” (2013, p. 11); this meaningful context comes in the form of authentic reading experiences. Notwithstanding the detractors, uptake of synthetic phonics in Australian classrooms is high, and is supported by research espousing the effectiveness of such approaches when appropriately implemented (Savage, 2007, p. 125); educators therefore must ensure that their implementation is direct and systematic, contains elements other than seatwork (workbooks and readers), and provides opportunities for students to engage in meaningful interactions with
