In the beginning of Chapter 1 of The Watchers, Travis was terrified of the unknown creature that was chasing the dog and him. Paragraph 97 supports my reasoning of Travis being afraid of the unknown when the narrator says “...the reason he did not look back was because he was afraid of what he’d might see.” Travis started panicking when he realized his “...intellect was overruled by instinct.” (87) This made him bathe in the terror and fright he was facing. Travis believed in the golden retrievers assumptions because he knew “...retrievers were renowned for boldness and courage.”(122) They were also “...frequently used in dangerous rescue operations.”(122) Another clue that gave me a better understanding of his fear was when he was running
In this scene, Titus shows no mercy for Tamora when she kneels and begs for Titus to show mercy for her son. She even tells Titus that “sweet mercy is nobility’s true badge” (1.1.119). Although the Romans claimed Titus to be the noblest of them all, he shows no mercy for a begging mother trying to save her son which explicitly shows the contrast between civility and barbarism in Titus. Titus ironically believes that he is being civil when he tells Tamora honorably to patience herself and to pardon him, but when he allows Lucius to commit the barbarous act, it complicates his civility. The complication that arises is whether to ask the question if Titus is being civil by doing his religious sacrifice or if the religious sacrifice is an “irreligious piety” (1.1.130) according to Tamora.
¨We in the audience can see the implication that eludes them (this is where our expectations concerning roads enter the equation), so much so that we may want to scream at them to walk them to walk up the road to a new life (Foster 236).¨ We didn't expect Tom to cheat on his wife, Daisy after he so called claimed he loved her. But what is really ironic, during the end of the book, Tom goes to Wilson's garage to get some gas for the car. Wilson explains to Tom how he thinks his wife Myrtle is having an affair but does not know who it is. As Daisy was driving, she accidentally killed Myrtle and it is insane because Daisy did not know Tom was cheating on her with Myrtle as well. It shows how dishonest and cruel people be.
For instance, when Tom gets furious at Myrtle, his mistress, for speaking Daisy’s name(Tom’s wife), Tom, “making a short deft movement, [...] breaks [Myrtle 's] nose with his open hand(37).” This scene, without doubt, portrays Tom’s lack of respect for women and it shows that Tom views Myrtle as nothing more than an object that is meant to please his sexual desires. Tom sees himself as a superior to Myrtle and feels that he has the right to punish and put her back into her submissive role when she steps out of line. Similarly, Wilson is also prompted to violence by
In Toms case, he is being hated by his small town. In Victors case he is being hated by his parents and kids at school. Tom is hated because he raped a girl cursed and told her she was wrong while testifying. Victor is hated because he ruins the family name by, being beat up then throwing up, getting an almost but not perfect score on the SATs and ruining his mom and dads vacation by trying to kill himself when they left him home alone. Overall Tom and Victor are villains in the eyes of the people they live with.
Why don’t you come over here and try to smack me?” (211). Arthur, under Erik’s commands, struck Luis with a blackjack on his head when unfortunately, he had an aneurysm in the same spot which burst after he got hit by the blackjack in the head, causing him to die a few days later. This furthermore affected Paul since he risked himself in trouble for helping Tino and Victor get away for attacking Erik due to his own attack on Luis, which caused Paul to get suspended out of all Tangerine County schools for the rest of his semester, kicking him out of the Tangerine Middle soccer
He isn't only hurting Daisy by cheating on her but he is also hurting Myrtles feelings when he is with Daisy. Toms has the mindset of a person that thinks that money can get him everything which in a way it did (got a wife ) and that's what made him careless. Tom got Daisy by buying here luxurious stuff and Myrtle by him being in a upper class than her. In Myrtle's case, Tom is in an upper class and Myrtle is
He then slays them. Titus, once presented as so noble and merciful, subjects the boys to the torture of knowing their fates before killing them in front of each other. In the next scene, Titus goes on to murder his daughter to preserve his family’s honour before revealing to Tamora that she has eaten the bodies of her children, and killing her. The cycle of violence is continued, when Saturninus kills Titus in retribution, and Lucius kills Saturninus. The final act of the play is pure chaos.
