Many people are quick to jump to conclusions on people 's personalities due to their appearance and their backstories. The townspeople of Hillsboro made assumptions of Henry Drummond by saying that he is a horrible agnostic, they even call him “the devil” and they want to restrict him from entering the town just because of the stories they hear about him. In Lawrence and Lee 's Inherit The Wind it is shown that Henry is actually a praiseworthy character throughout the play even though the townspeople labeled him as a terrible person. Throughout the play, all his motives had intelligence behind it, he is considerate to Bertram Cates and gives Bertram a sense of pride and hope, and Henry shows respect and stands up for Matthew Harrison Brady even though he is his opponent.
This, in turn, caused Troy 's mother to abandon him, leaving him without love from a parent or anyone to show him the correct way to treat females, a sin that affects his relationship with Rose as an adult. His father 's treatment of Troy made Troy believe there was more to his suffering than what was humanly possible "The gal jumped and run off...and when my daddy turned to face me, I could see why the devil had never come to get him...cause he was the devil himself"(Wilson 52).This metaphor used by Troy, adds a certain weight to the gravity of his situation as a teen. His father wasn 't just cruel but was the devil, a symbol of pure hate and all evil.
After his accusations, Oedipus mocked Teiresias for his blindness, and told him to leave the palace as Oedipus had grown tired of him. Oedipus’s imperfect nature stopped him from learning the truth from Teiresias before it was too late, and lead to great loss at the end of the play. Throughout the story of Oedipus the King, the imperfectly noble nature of Oedipus is displayed for all to learn from. His temperamental and overzealous nature made him argumentative and combative when Teiresias tried to tell him the truth about the murder, causing Oedipus to accuse his good friend Creon of being a usurper.
Clearly, obsession can really make one think so irrationally that they forget the basic principles of humanity and they end up doing ridiculous things without usually realizing until after they have taken the wrong action. The lead character in “The Tell-Tale Heart”, had gone so crazy because of his obsession over his eyes, that he decided to take the old man’s life in a very cruel way. The old man had never harmed, insulted, or wronged him in any way, and rather they both cared about each other but “it wasn’t the man who vexed me [him], but the evil eye” . Gradually, he made up his mind to take the life of the old
Waldrip in comparison to Odysseus’s handling with the suitors. Accordingly, in Homer’s great poem you can find this passage; “So they mocked, but Odysseus, mastermind in action… scanned every inch… horror swept through the suitors…” Odysseus hid in plain sight to analyze the loyalties of the suitors, found who was worthy, then connivingly served his justice with the suitors. On the flip side, Everett saw Vernon and without hesitation attempted to physically challenge him, and lost. McGill did no planning to get Vernon out of his family’s lives, the situation ended up that way out of luck.
Humanity has always been fascinated by the ugly and the bizarre; we love to stare and make fun of the unattractive. Carnival sideshows, called ‘Freak Shows’ by their attendees, which were popularized in the Victorian Era, showcased grotesque or abnormal people for viewers to gawk at. A recent example of this trend would be the widespread use of the ‘Poot’ meme. A meme is a cultural phenomena that is spread across the internet, and is usually in the form of an image. This image is often accompanied by an overlay of text that mocks the image or relays the writer’s thoughts about the image.
I hate the/ word as I hate hell, all Montagues and thee, coward!” (I.i.ll.72-74). Tybalt does not realize that fighting over a simple disagreement is completely unnecessary yet since he is so hot-tempered believes that he is above everyone else. Even Capulet doesn’t fight as much as Tybalt. Later in the play after causing a fight with Romeo, Mercutio steps forward and Tybalt kills him.
He looked like the face of death, from what many people called him, without a nose and scary, luminescent eyes that glowed in the dark. When he was young he ran away from home and joined the circus. During this time away in the circus he was able to learn his trade of being a version of Jean Eugene Robert - Houdin, the world’s best magician of the time, which helped him in always being in control at the Opera house later on. He learned the art of ventriloquy, which helped him trick his victims into thinking they were hearing voices in their heads. And he also loved the art of manipulation, which allowed him the geniusness of getting people to do what he wanted them too, otherwise he would use the art of murder to punish anyone who
Basil has come to ask Dorian about all the horrible rumors surrounding him, and hopes they turn out false. Basil also asks about the portrait and why Dorian hides it, so Dorian decides to show him his “to see your soul. But only God can do that—you shall see it yourself to-night!”. Dorian then takes Basil to see his picture, which at first cannot be recognized by Basil, but soon he realizes the true horror of the situation, “an exclamation of horror broke out from the painter’s lips as he saw in the dim light the hideous face on the canvas grinning at him” (Wilde 113). Dorians soul has become rotten to the core with selfishness and pleasure, mainly because of Lord Henry’s poisonous words.
Or they would be drawn as if they were performing as seen in (Liberty Bros. Permanent Daily Circus) The Family of Seals, 1996, they are dressed as clowns and are posing like seals. Though his work it creates powerful emotions as to a white person they might feel the guilt of what they have done compared to a darker person who might feel the pain and suffering of what they went through. As this created the stereotypes that categorised African Americans to be slaves and highlighted the political and social
In the stories The Tell-Tale Heart and The Black Cat, both narrators realize their acts were wrong, but they did them anyway by rationalizing that they were driven by circumstance. The Tell-Tale Heart is about a mad man who truly believes he is not crazy by telling us the whole story. He deeply loves his roomate but his blind eye became a nusiance to him and he couldn’t stand it no more and he had to do something about it. He ended up killing him so perfectly no one whould know, but the guilt ate him up and he amited he had done the deed to the police. Similarly, The Black Cat is about another insane man who drowns his sorrows with achocl and is so confident with himeself.
Freakonomics is somewhat random grab bag of topics. The unifying theme of this book for me was finding ways to ask questions so that one's available statistics and data can provide an answer, time after time they used available statistics to provide some time of reasoning or answers to the question being asked. Some of these efforts were more successful than others. Some of the questions Levitt and Dubner study felt unnecessary, that no one really cares about. But there are also some good subjects.
In the book Freak the Mighty by Rodman Philbrick, there are contrast and contradiction moments that are revealing change. In the book, Grim and the School nurse both say,“ Everything is going to be okay maxwell, I am sure of it.” But, Max thinks he is okay and nothing bad is going to happen and Freak is the one that needs someone to tell him he is going to be okay, because stuff is happening to freak.
