Glory was a value inherent to Roman society. Plutarch expertly compared Caesar to Alexander in Lives through their respective quests for glory. Caesar was driven to conquer new lands in his pursuit for glory: “Caesar had long ago resolved upon . . .
He immediately notices that America is as wondrous as he had hoped for it to be. He even states that he was “literally overcome with the beauty of the landscape” and that an “immigrant’s arrival in his new home is like a second birth to him.” This tone shows that Cahan is grateful that he has reached America and has already seen that it’s a great place. Moreover, he could finally break free from the mental torment that he had faced during his voyage to this country. As the passage went on, Cahan had multiple changes in his
After Frankenstein catches Walton up on the events that brought him thus far, Walton provides Shelley a way to tell the end of the story as well. Because Shelley wrote these portions as letters, they remain separate from the rest of the narrative, making the switch between Walton and Frankenstein less awkward and opening the door to develop her story and characters in a
Another character in Shelley’s novel that demonstrates that knowledge is dangerous if left unbalanced, is Robert Walton. As a fundamental character to the novel, he is the “conduit through which the reader hears the story of Victor and his monster” (SparkNotes). Recalling the details told to him both by Frankenstein and the Monster, he narrates Shelley’s novel. Walton and Frankenstein have abounding things in common.

The novel Frankenstein has a unique way of expressing how the setting functions as a whole. Mary Shelley used an early 1800s setting in Switzerland and London to show how Victor made it through this extraordinary adventure. There were multiple themes that affected how the setting functioned in the novel. Nature, weather, and season all affect the mood of the characters. These things all have a great impact on the setting of the book.
Foreseeing the Future Foreshadowing was used by Mary Shelley in Frankenstein to achieve her goal of making the reader predict what will happen. The first form of foreshadowing the reader notices is when Walton says to Victor, “One man’s life or death were but a small price to pay for the acquirement of the knowledge” (11). This foreshadows the disasters that will face Victor as he experiments and tries to find the unknown. Then, Victor says, “Let me reveal my tale, and you will dash the cup from your lips?” (12). This foreshadows that once Walton hears Frankenstein’s story, he will change his mind about his expedition.
Fitzgerald utilizes many rhetorical strategies throughout his novel. Specific to the excerpt the rhetorical strategies metaphor and personification are found to be used to strengthen Fitzgerald’s key themes of dreams and reality.

With a background that is cemented in history like that of the Jacobins, anything is possible. From abolishing Monarchy, to taking control of the National Assembly, it just goes to show how committed the Jacobins are to success. As stated in the “Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen”, our goal of “…the natural, inalienable, and sacred rights of man…” is something we take to heart (Lafayette, 77). In just a few months, our final plan will have taken its course. Do not miss out the revolution of a lifetime, and come support a great cause.
Exploration is the act of searching for the purpose of discovery of information or resources. Exploring was exactly what drove the thrill in Lewis and Clark’s life. Having been given a chance by Thomas Jefferson, the current president at the time, they both joined together and brought each of their skills to help accomplish the journey they 've been requested to take. Having each of their strengths combined they needed a crew to make the trek successful. Lewis wondered through the deep thicket of the uncharted land when Clark fixed his eyes across the rivers and rich earth untouched lands mapping every thing he could imagine.
The great President Ronald Reagan once said, “America is still a beacon, still a magnet for all who must have freedom, for all the pilgrims from all the lost places who are hurting through the darkness toward home.” (Artifact 4) Like a magnet, we draw people in. We are the only country in this entire world that has had such success from our very beginning. Because of the hope of a bright future, our founding fathers worked to make today possible. My personal belief is that God lifted their fences and cleared their foggy glasses a bit to give them each individually a glimpse of what could be. I believe they were gifted with imaginations far superior to yours and mine.
