A part of human nature that most members of the human race constantly feed into without fail. From the start of the poem, there is a post-apocalyptic and war-like tone to the writing. Levine gives descriptions of “ burlap sacks, out of bearing butter”, “ acids of rage, the candor of tar”, and “creosote, gasoline, drive shafts, wooden dollies”(Levine, 1-4). These are all characteristics of a society that is unpleasant to live in. The poem suggests that this is a result of the hatred of humans and the easiest way to “feed they lion” and make “they lion grow”(Levine 5).

Reading Response “Shooting an Elephant” by George Orwell is a story about what he went through when he was a policeman in Burma, and why he shot an elephant, “solely to avoid looking [like] a fool.” “[He] was hated by a large numbers of people,” and in a way tortured for things that he didn’t even understand what he was doing. He perceived that him and his other european cohorts were doing the right thing, but he also hated that fact that they were there. At first I assumed that this essay was going to be about just killing an elephant for fun and how it made him feel. I was surprised to find out that it’s actually about a policeman who was called to help get a rogue elephant and he is basically forced to kill the elephant; he doesn’t want
“Shooting an Elephant”, by George Orwell, is a story of Orwell as a cop in a barbaric society where the law was never really taken seriously. As you can probably tell from the title of the story, an elephant gets shot and Orwell is the one who did it. Many believe that Orwell killed the elephant because he was peer pressured to do so by the townspeople that were staring at him and mocking him for being a weak coward. That may seem like the right answer, but then Orwell begins to write about the thoughts that were running through his mind. He says, “...I was very glad that the coolie had been killed; it put me legally in the right and it gave me a sufficient pretext for shooting the elephant.”, because he tried to make himself feel better about killing the elephant by saying that the elephant deserved to die for killing a man, thus Orwell said that it was kind of like pleading self-defense.
Even though the elephant had stopped causing destruction by the end of the story I believe Orwell did have to shoot the elephant because the elephant had caused a lot of destruction in the village and would have been made fun of if he hadn’t. As I read Shooting An Elephant, I noticed the elephant was causing mass destruction because it was angry. If it were angry that means there was a cause to it becoming angry but it would have not been a good choice upon the actions of Orwell if he had gone to look for the source of the elephant’s anger. That would cause more destruction. “It had already destroyed somebody's bamboo hut, killed a cow and raided some fruit
On the other hand, Zeus did not interact with the people that much, because he mainly controlled the sky ( Sehr H). Another way they were different, they were each scared of different things. Hera was scared for the cow, lion, and the peacock (Sehr H). Zeus is scared for the rams and eagles (Sehr H). The word “scared” means that they were connected to the animal very well.

Metamorphosis Essay From the very beginning of the novel, the Metamorphosis, when Gregor explains, “If I didn’t hold back for my parent’s sake, I’d have quit ages ago. I would go to the boss and state my opinion out loud from the bottom of my heart” (Kafka 14), it is evident that Gregor felt obligated to provide an income for his family. Proceeding these feelings of obligation, Gregor experienced a massive amount of guilt as he could no longer support the rest of his family financially, due to his transformation into a gargantuan pest. Throughout the Metamorphosis, Gregor’s guilt consumed his thoughts and ultimately resulted in a strain in the relationships with his family members. Gregor felt guilty because he could no longer provide for

John Grady Cole had experienced severe depression and had almost killed the captain due to his experiences.
I believe that throughout his film Fast, Cheap And Out of Control, director Errol Morris is attempting to shake the viewers of their complacency concerning animal issues and what constitutes an animal. Morris’ film consists of interviews with four men: A lion tamer, a topiary gardener, a mole rat scientist, and a robotics engineer. Through their interviews and the disorienting nature of the film, Morris reflects on the complicated relationship between humans and animals. One of Morris’ observations is that while claiming to care for animals, many still mistreat them. I believe the best example of this from the film is the lion tamer George Hoover.
In the first stage the monkeys were put back with other monkeys after a year of isolation. The results from the interaction with other monkeys lead to bizarre behavior within the monkeys that were isolated because out of fear they were not able to communicate with them appropriately. The monkeys held on to themselves and rock themselves compulsively because they did not understand the situation that they were in. Since some of the isolated monkeys were terrified they became aggressive toward the other monkeys that tried to be near them. According to McLeod (2015) from the simply psychology website, the author says, “They were also unable to communicate or socialise with other monkeys.
In Lord of The Flies fear caused the boys to become scared of the unknown and changed the way they thought. Fear is a theme that is found throughout the entire book. In the beginning one of the first signs of fear among the boys is seen when a littlun brings up the idea of a beast on the island. Though the boys laugh it off, fear of the unknown is beginning to settle in as the author states, “Either the wandering breezes or perhaps the decline of the sun allowed a little coolness to lie under the trees. The boys felt it and stirred restlessly.”(36) Even though there is no evidence to support the idea of a beast, simply the fear of a beast or something unknown to them on the island causes them to become scared.
