Predictions in the Weather Motifs, such as blood and animals, were used very commonly in Macbeth to enhance different elements of the story. One motif that stood out was the use of weather in reflecting the tone and hinting at different situations. The weather, most commonly in the form of violent storms, is used to signify darkness and chaos that is occurring throughout the story. The first time that storms are used is at the beginning of the story when Macbeth is being praised for his actions in battle. The sergeant described the scene, “As whence the sun 'gins his reflection Shipwrecking storms and direful thunders break,” (Shakespeare lines 44-45).
The Three Extreme Dangers of Hurricanes hook. Hurricanes can cause great harm to people, property and nature. Areas flood widely and debris can fly at the same speeds of the heavy winds. The three main factors of danger that come with hurricanes are strong winds, heavy rainfall and storm surges.
By accusing the Army of treason, he lost respect in the population and bad opinions spread around, ruining his power streak. This risk prevented these kinds of people from succumbing to actions that would sabotage their reputation. In addition, McCarthyism allowed these kinds of nasty people, such as McCarthy, to act upon unsightly desires. Therefore, the McCarthy trials encouraged the conflict between
The Great Fire of 1910 was very destructive in its nature. A drought and dry spring made the ground exhausted with dehydration. In Sherry Devlin’s article she states “Wallace townspeople blew up dynamite in hopes that the man made thunder would bring rain”. Tons of small fires were started from lighting, people, and railroads. () Rangers scooted along trains and put out fires.
Finally, Creon comes to the realization that his actions in the play led to the death of his son before he learns of Eurydice’s suicide. Creon first learns of his wife’s death in line 1408 of episode 5, when the messenger comments on his grief, mentioning “the rest, in the house”, the “rest” being the deceased Eurydice. However, before this point, in line 1393, Creon describes his prior actions, such as the sentencing of Antigone, as “crimes” that are “so senseless, so insane”. He describes them as such because they led to his son’s death, but he came to this realization before he learned of Eurydice’s suicide. Therefore, her death did not contribute to Creon’s epiphany in any way, and is irrelevant in this
“ Mistakes made by a foolish mind, cruel mistakes that bring on death.” (1406 to 1407.) In this quote, King Creon of Thebes is acknowledging that he has made tragic mistakes, because he wanted to the laws of his state, that he put in place, instead of preserving the safety of his family, which consequently lead to suffering for many. In the play Antigone, by Sophocles, the character Creon makes decisions based on what he feels is right, and refuses to pay attention to other’s advice. His stubbornness and selfishness prove fatal, and as a consequence of his moral deficiency, he kills an innocent woman, and loses his son in the aftermath.
When people speak of mass death and illness they hardly speak as zealously as St. Cyprian spoke when we explained his thoughts about a plague sweeping Rome. During such a hectic time to be alive he turned to religion to rationalize why this epidemic was taking place. Rather than use this situation to validate that there is no god and lose all faith St. Cyprian takes a different approach. Instead, he sees this mass illness as justified suffering that his religion requires in order to achieve some sort of reward. This epidemic is killing many people, this would normally be seen as a terrible thing but St. Cyprian does not value life in this world.
People always say that “the road won’t be easy.” Unfortunately, in life bad things happen to good people. For example, people have a loved one die, and they cannot control it. This is also the case for Oedipus, because he does not know the truth about his life and does not know that he is actually fulfilling the prophecy about him. Oedipus was blind to the truth almost the entirety of the play.
If no human had entered the building and the furniture had been tampered by some invisible force inside, the owner knew that it was bad news. He closed the shop shortly afterwards. Ghost tours in LaLaurie mansion in the recent times were common. This was before LaLaurie mansion was sold off as private property. During one such tour, one member who participated happened to be a medium.
Approximately around the 1340’s, the Black Death was rampant through Europe. There were three variations of it called bubonic, septicemic and pneumonic. The people of the time believed the plague was a punishment of God because they had no knowledge of germs and how they spread. The plague was killing many people and out of fear they came together in churches to pray but this only spread things more. The priest and noblemen fled leaving their people to die.
“[Thomas] knew the dust-riddled air would choke him; it was hard enough to take short, quick breaths through his nose. Especially with the storm of lightning crashing to the ground around him, singeing the air, making everything smell like copper and ash.” In the book The Scorch Trials by James Dashner, Thomas needs to find his way out of the Scorch— an unpredictable, abandoned area now used by WICKED to test Thomas and the rest of the Gladers— and hopefully find a cure that has slain the lives of most of the remaining population. Along the way, Thomas encounters several difficult tasks, each one bringing out his true character and leaving him more confused than ever. When Teresa, Thomas’ best friend, makes a reappearance, Thomas has to decide
With More injuries, fires and death. He uses a simple fear tactic that firefighters are doomed to the flames with faulty equipment and dangerous situations. The contemporary use of pathos is high, especially after Dave’s wife died. This appeal of pathos gives the impression that the life of a firefighter is tough to manage with death all around. They also depict another young firefighter who is still paralyzed to this day from a collapsing wall that landed on his back.
Volcanoes are formed as mountains that can be deadly. The tornado-like winds and ash from the eruption, opposed to the magma, is the most deadly part of a volcano. These winds are called “pyroclastic flow” and are very powerful that destroy lots. “The pyroclastic flow is similar to strong wind storms called hurricanes”(Lassieur 3).
The setting is described as violent and the storm’s fury represents the boy’s bitterness and enmity. Similarly, mistaking Simon as the beast, Jack’s group of savages kill him, which is ironic because Simon discovered that the beast is within everyone and was on his way to tell the rest of the group. The setting of the novel prevails the theme Civilization vs. Savagery because the weather changes according to the boy’s animosity and the island isolates them from any other human contact, leaving them to make important survival decisions without input from adults, which causes them to ignore the civilized values that used to
The painting chosen, Rocky Coastline, Cornwall is an oil on canvas painting by William Trost Richards from 1886. This painting depicts a rigid cliff accompanied by crashing waves of a deep ocean as well as a dark overhead sky. The artist, Richards attended Central High School, adjacent to La Salle University, but later dropped out due to his father’s death. He had a special interest in geological subjects, and after 1868, focused solely on coastal scenes, such as this painting. I chose this painting because I was very intrigued by the realism and detail of the rocks and waves, nearly resembling a sharp photograph.
