After the killing when Jason confronts Medea he says, "No woman from Greece would dare to do this ... You're not a woman. You're a she-lion. Your nature is more bestial than Scylla, the Tuscan monster", (page 44). His statement about no Greek woman daring to do that implys that Medea did what she did because she is a barbarian and uncivilised unlike a Greek woman.Jason reveals his Greek prejudice to outsiders with this statement. Which is pretty understandable in this situation, since Medea has just slaughtered four people, including her own children.
“His mind was in turmoil/unaccustomed anxiety and gloom/confused his brain; the fire-dragon/ had raised the coastal region and reduced/forts and earthworks to dust and ashes/so the war-king planned and plotted his revenge” (Heaney 2331-2336). Beowulf knows he will be able to defeat the dragon, but this fight is different comparing to Grendel and Grendel’s mother. “The glittering sword/infallible before that day/failed when he unsheathed it, as it never should have” (Heaney 2584-2586). All of the swords are breaking and he gets bit by her causing him to have a poison in his neck. Evil is towering over, and no one is able to save Beowulf until Wiglaf his only warrior who stay behind helps him out.

This starts early on, the first day after they arrive at the camp Elie feels that the environment he has been placed in has changed him “What had happened to me?

You were the une who understood it all. And I started to cry… Tongue-tied by time and drugs, she smiled a funny smile… ()”. As Sonia recalls who Norma used to be and what she should have been, Sonia begins to cry because she realizes what society had robbed Norma of and forced Norma to become.

Death is imminent, and many people have developed a fear of this idea. Babette Gladney is no exception to the fear of death, so indefinitely that she became a guinea pig for dylar. Dylar is a pill that,“ promises to eliminate the individual’s fear of death.” (Yavuz) In my opinion, Babette acted upon her instincts, she did not do much research on anything. If I was Babette I would have asked people in my neighborhood about Willie Mink. I would have done this to learn anything i could about Willie Mink before I made my decision.

"Surrounded by a fringe of inquisitive, bright creatures, itself a silver shape beneath the steadfast constellations, Simon's dead body moved out toward the open sea"(Golding 154). This represents foreshadowing because it paved their way to losing almost all of their innocence. “‘Ralph tells Piggy, "That was murder." Piggy, on the other hand, tries to rationalize, saying maybe Simon is all right, "It was an accident," "Coming in the dark--he hadn't no business crawling like that out of the dark,(140)’” yet they still have some innocence because the morning after Simon perished they were all too ashamed to even say the word

Since then, he decided to forget about her for the sake of his duty and for his self-conscience. “… But I reminded himself that my obligation was not to be loved but to lead… and because I realized she did not loved me and never would.” That day he burned everything, all the letters and photographs, but still that feeling never went away.
