Response: The allusion to Heidi is important because it shows how the guy Tim O 'Brien killed was not innocent after all. Heidi is a young innocent character with good intentions. However, the quote reflects upon the fact that in the war, there are no more good or bad, there are no rights or wrongs after all. Nobody is innocent like Heidi, they all carry a guilt inside.
The Donner Party had a great effect on the way pioneers traveled later on in time. The Miller and Reed families left on April 26, 1846 (Rosen). The Donners’ arrive at Independece, Missouri on May 10, 1846 (Rosen). The emigrants who would later form the Donner Party traveled with the Russell Party from Independece, Missouri to Alcove Springs in the Indian territory, which is now Kansas (Rosen). On Sunday November 1, 1846 the Donner Party decided to stay in Nevada for the winter (Rosen).
Oedipus is human, regardless of his pride, his intelligence, or his stubbornness and we can recognize this in his reaction to his wrongdoings. With this, the audience is affected to feel both pity and fear. There is pity for this broken man and fear that his tragedy could be our own, as well.
Proctor also admits to elizabeth “ My honesty is broke, Elizabeth; I am no good man.” (Miller 136) In saying this, proctor takes responsibility for what he did, thus proving that he knows his actions are what caused him to be where he is at. In the end proctor says “ let rebecca nurse go like a saint; for me it is fraud” and “it is evil and I do it.”
History is only what people remember, and in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1920’s era novel, The Great Gatsby, the jazz age was personified to so many Americans by big business, big parties, and big dreams. What many even educated people today picture in their vision of the 1920’s was actually created in Fitzgerald’s experiences and imagination. The author used so many important symbolic elements as he wove his tale that the symbolic meaning becomes a part of the novel itself. This is never truer than a billboard who becomes the Lord, Himself, a light at the end of a dock, and a little high quality H2O. In the beginning, there was God, and…in the Valley of Ashes, you perceive for a moment the eyes of Dr. TJ Eckleburg (23).
Normally humans inflict emotional pain to one another out of pleasure, the feeling of doing the action and simply because it is in our nature. Any human has the capability of commiting appalling actions under the right conditions. In Mark Twain’s “The Lowest Animal” there are many observations he has proven to be correct. In his essay he states the true reality of mankind and how cruelty resides in their human nature.
This quote shows that even though the creature does good, his benevolence is not rewarded in a positive way. The creature wouldn’t have been so angry and seeking vengeance if he was just accepted by his creator (Victor) or by society in general. I feel as though the creatures acts of evil and the crimes he committed could have been avoided if he was just shown compassion from Victor. I have sympathy for the monster in the sense that he was brought into the world basically set up to
Americans were giddy and carefree after the war ended (Gitlin). Industries grew and more jobs were available. More families had a bigger income so they could afford things they couldn 't in the past. This newfound wealth among the U.S was a change for many people across the country. Research and time were put into finding new inventions and ways to make life better.
To make more money, King George raised the taxes of the American colonies. Most of the settlers were not all Englishmen, they were immigrants from other countries as well. Many felt like the taxes were too high. Because of these axes, this caused settlers to move west onto uncharted land. This caused the French-Indian war (Espinosa, 2008).
Gioia’s creation of a series of NEA National Initiatives to reach previously underserved communities established the agency as truly national in scope (Benson 5). Business Week Magazine referred to him as “The Man Who Saved the NEA” (Byrnes 1). Through programs such as Shakespeare in American Communities, Operation Homecoming: Writing the Wartime Experience, NEA Jazz Masters, American Masterpieces, and Poetry Out Loud, the Arts Endowment has successfully reached millions of Americans in all corners of the country. Due to such successes as well as the continued artistic excellence of the NEA’s core grant programs, the Arts Endowment, under Chairman Gioia, reestablished itself as a preeminent federal agency and a leader in the arts
Out of all the new encounters Americans made during the 1920 's, new jazz music was definitely the most monumental. Although about 71 percent of Americans were below the poverty line, it is depicted as a time when many wealthy people went out to party (Bure). Radios were more accessible now, so music was heard everywhere (Bone 469-470). Americans had never heard so much music so often, and reacted in a sort of frenzy. Americans of any income level could now own a radio, so music was a new pastime for many (Howes.
On March 7th, I had the privilege of attending a performance called “The Castle” written and performed by four wonderful and talented people – Rory Anderson, Ervin Hunt, Victor Rojas, and Vilma Oritz Donovan. As I traveled all the way to the Engleman Recital Hall at Baruch College, I was excited because I have never ever heard of a performance where ex- convicts come in to tell their stories. After more than an hour, I came to the conclusion that this performance was absolutely astonishing and exceeded my expectations. In “The Castle,” the four performers each beautifully told their story of how they ended up on dark path, leading up to their incarceration.
