But I ignored their counsel, though that course would have avoided many griefs for us” (Homer 176) . Odysseus's leadership skills improve through the challenges he faces in the book, especially after the Cyclops incident. He thought it would be a good idea to wait so he could finally face and see the cyclops instead of to escape while they could, like his men wanted to. Due to Odysseus's curiosity his men weren't able to escape when they had the chance to and had to suffer being held hostage because of Odysseus's poor leadership skills. Another way Odysseus showed horrible leadership in the beginning was when he put himself before his crewman stating, “I asked my comrades to cast lots to see which men would dare to lift that stake with me and grind it into the Cyclops’ eye when sweet sleep overtook him” (Homer 179).
Also, on page 220 it talks about Booth not Feeling empowered to send a warning or any other command directly to Turner. If he had done this it might have saved the lives lost on the Lusitania. There were other things wrong, like the contradicting messages that the Lusitania received, but the ship decided to go onward. Turner had another problem, by opening himself up to the U boats by circling out in the sea, while waiting for high tide so he could cross into the Mersey Bar. On page 242, when people started exclaiming “torpedo,” it also talks about Turner not having enough time and enough knowledge about avoiding torpedoes, it might 've saved the whole ship and maybe could 've avoided the torpedo entirely.
(Ch. 13, pg 107) She had gained respect for having raised her child as a well behaved young girl, and having provided for the both of them with an honest living as a seamstress, all the while being cut off from the rest of society. Hester was allowed to assimilate back into the community. John proctor was only given one chance to save himself and his wife, and that chance forced him to fall out of God’s good graces by lying. John Proctor fancied death over the guilt of being a sinner, and was content with knowing that his refusal to confess to witchcraft would preserve the good that he believed was still in him.
Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale had an affair with Hester Prynne and Hester is the one being shamed for it. Being considered a god and being looked up to didn't help much either, being praised was a constant reminder of how imperfect he was and how cowardly he became because of his guilt. In conclusion, symbolism was greatly used in The Scarlet Letter to show how guilt can destroy someone. Dimmesdale has shown us that guilt can be more destructive than punishment imposed on others and that deception and secrecy can be destructive.
The statement of the fallibilities of an individual would help to withdraw them or to alter them into strengths, which would benefit the quality of life of an individual. Problem Statement A significant option to overcome the weakness is to find a new way to treat it. Personal weakness is not a diagnosis, which is immutable, and there is no reason to hate the personal self.
However, despite the rough circumstances, the two protagonists, George and Lennie find each other through insecurities and imperfections. Rather than fending off problems by themselves, the two protagonists learn the true value of friendship and support one another. As the story develops, both the characters and readers learn the true value of friendship. Although friendship means that one would have to be candid about insecurities, it prevents loneliness and unfortunate bitterness. Throughout the story, friendship is a guarantee that prevents loneliness and bitterness even if it means that one would have to be open about insecurities.
The speaker feels it destroyed his mental and emotional well-being, and even uses figurative language to link it to physical destruction. This is meant to give a sense of how love changes this person. The speaker, in a moment of presumed self-awareness, is bitter about the change he has experienced due to love. Though the beloved character is mentioned, he or she is not seen as the cause, or even the object of this bitterness. It is the condition of being in love the speaker finds abhorrent, because it degrades the speaker, and fills him with regret and disgust.
There are rules they must follow and if they break a rule then they get released and trust me, to be released is a bad thing. One of the main things are that they can’t lie, but I think everyone should lie occasionally, so they can protect themselves and sometimes lying is important, it just depends on the situation. In the community it isn’t a safer place to be than reality, because when everyone is the same they can’t be who they want to be. Also, you can’t feel pain but feeling pain is a good thing because if you can’t feel pain then you’re not real, well that’s what I believe. Feeling emotions are amazing and why would anyone want to take that away?
As related earlier, catharsis aims to elicit pity and fear in order to purge such emotions from the audience. As such, the tragic hero’s punishment must not be considered entirely deserved otherwise it would be seen as justice and the cathartic effect would not take place. Instead, the punishment must be somewhat excessive so that pities the tragic hero for his misfortune as well as fears for their own lives after seeing the world is not always fair. However, in order to confirm that Oedipus’ punishment exceeds his crime, both must be identified. Oedipus’ crime is quite simply his attempt to escape his own fate.
Refer to the Broken Window theory, it says a building with few broken windows left not fixed, then all the rest of the windows will soon be broken (George, 1982). This theory implies that once people do evil, they would not resist to do it again next time. In this case, if one betray his friend, he would not refuse to betray another friend afterward. When time passes through, as long as people reject to collaborate with the person with bad behavior, it is no longer possible for him to have good relationships with anyone. Therefore, being a notorious man makes everyone keep distance with him and brings lots of obstacles in one’s life, no matter in career and marriage while they both needs good bonding with others.
Nat should not have been forced to live and work at the chandlery. There are three proofs, bad things that could have or did happen to Nat, Nat could have been helpful with his family, Nat’s schoolwork was delayed. The first reason that Nat shouldn’t have been forced to live and work at the chandlery is that bad things could have happened to him. Nat could have died while he was on a ship.
The theme that injustice will not prevail. And though James’ mother was aware that injustice existed, she did not accept it and become resentful, she instead valued her children and all the shades of color they contained, and relived her life through them. She was an old wooden table that
If it’s good, you’re the enemy towards someone else and that they can’t trust. However, if it’s bad, somebody is an enemy towards you and can’t trust them. For example, Ishmael said “This is one of the consequences of the civil war. People stop trusting each other, and every stranger becomes an enemy.” (CH.
In conclusion, I believe that the theme communication is better than violence is the best lesson illustrated in The Outsiders, because physical harm doesn 't change anything, there 's no point in doing it, and it usually ends negatively for the participants. This relates to me because I think sometimes we get so frustrated with people that we don 't even think about talking it out, but really, it would help us resolve our problems more effectively if we communicated with each other. I definitely recommend The Outsiders to anyone who wants an action-packed book that teaches a
Also, being disrespectful to a peer is downright degrading. You will make people feel bad about themselves, then in return the will give up. If everyone is just respectful to each other things will run more smoothly and the results will be much more positive. But besides from being dedicated and respectful, you also need to be really truly dedicated to what you are doing. A passionate leader will pour their heart and soul into whatever they are doing, and that alone makes the outcome a million times more authentic and amazing then someone who just kind of showed up to the auditions and made it.
