He grew up to severed relations with his family which lead to him establishing himself (“Commentary on Ambrose”). At a very young age, Ambrose Bierce joined the Union army which brought experiences as a soldier that served as a basis for some of his most famous Civil War tales, such as “Chickamauga” and “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” (“Commentary on Ambrose”). These tales explored the lives at the frontier and on the homefront while showing the cruel costs of war on civilians, and they publicize violent endings that many met (Bierce). Bierce was known for the naturalist movement that arose in American literature during the Reconstruction era. Naturalism was a writing style based on instinct, passion, and individuals.
Repetition helped to emphasize significant events or phrases that the reader should remember and take away. Throughout the poem, “The Charge of the Light Brigade”, the author uses repetition quite often. For example, the phrase “rode the six hundred” is repeated 3 times in lines 4, 8, and 17. This phrase being repeated helps the reader understand how six hundred men risked their live and rode into battle without questioning a single thing. Another example of repetition that appeared in lines 3 and 7 was “valley of Death.” This phrase represents how the men walked right into a bloodbath and how most of the men had died during the war.
In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, John Proctor is a complex character. Proctor’s actions in the play bring up multiple questions and uncertainty because of his sinful past of adultery. One move that comes into question that comes into question is his self-sacrifice at the end. Proctor rips up his confession and gives up his chance of living to save the reputation of the innocent people that are "witches." Many people do not find his act of self-sacrifice believable, but Proctor’s final actions show that he is sincerely a good man despite his past.
Of all the great heroes in epics and movies alike, each one of them has his or her great traits as well as fatal flaws. Unfortunately, our hero’s fatal flaw is losing faith in God and he loses his life because of that. In the epic Beowulf, many references to Paganism and Christianity are found throughout the tale due to the author’s belief that faith in God assures victory whereas faith in paganism assures defeat. Paganism and Christianity parallel the struggle of holiness and evil throughout the epic, and in many cases, faith in God is the key to Beowulf´s success as he defeats monsters and protects the village of Herot. Beowulf faces foes such as Grendel and Grendel’s mother who utilize magic spells to fight as read, “that sin-stained demon/
At the fault of his father, he reacted rashly. “When Walt’s double life came to light, the revelations inflicted deep wounds. All parties suffered terrible.” This would be a negative turning point in anyone's life, but Chris was wrong to just pack up and take himself to his death. Though Chris indeed had his flaws, more evidence points to him being sane. He was moral, made decent decisions for the most part and was intelligent and likable.
His children, Scout and Jem Finch, are following their father’s word of wisdom and learning about integrity throughout their experiences on the way. The amount of integrity can dictate someone’s reputation. Boo Radley revealed his kindness in an unpredicted manner.

The irony is that McMurphy first enters the ward as sane as can be to never leaving the place of corrupt ruling because he ends up dying in the ward. According to Jean Griffon she expresses that “This conflict is further complicated by Kersey’s use of Christ imagery to describe McMurphy, leading readers to regularly accept McMurphy’s death as a selfless sacrifice for the greater good. This particular reading can only result from readers missing the irony.”(Griffin 25) However it is also ironic because he is seen as a heroic figure to the patients and usually in
Elia Kazan a Greek-American director once said, “Whatever hysteria exists is inflamed by mystery, suspicion and secrecy” In The Crucible by Arthur Miller the town of Salem gets warped into a loop of lies and false accusations. A group of girls claim to be able to see spirits to avoid being called witches, and accuse others of being witches, starting a chain reaction. Now others accuse people of being witches in order to get rid of those they don‘t like, and so they be hanged. Hysteria and conformity cause an uproar of lies that kill innocent people in Salem. Hysteria makes people become irrational , and innocent people die because of false accusations.
To some he can be described as a Hero Archetype and to others a Rebel Archetype. From reading my paper you can tell that I think he is both archetypes. I can relate to Proctor in some ways because in the end Proctor became truthful and confessed to everything that he had done. Although he had confessed to the truth people tried to shun him and make him feel even worse for what he did. Instead of Proctor getting his name on the church doors he wanted to die to save his good name.
Bill and Sam were not prepared or committed to their situation which led to awkward or hysterical situations. “I…….. of all nerve’ but i looked at bill who had the most dumb look on any animal. ‘One more night and he’ll drive me crazy.’” The irony of the kidnappers having to pay the ransom amuses the readers. ‘I……. of all nerve.” Shows how appalled Sam was about how the situation had turned from bad to worse.
