In addition, this book was written with too many blood and gore; a disgust words that can make people sick, which I found infuriating. It was also edited somewhat off-color, but that rarely distracted from the plot. For example, the first depiction of Slither drinking blood was nauseating and there are several more which are wholly sickening. The description of the loss of the middle sister, Susan, gives far too much element, especially since by that point readers are sick to death of blood and killing. It would be better to not use the words too much, but the story was still articulately.
The Royal Rumble is meant to be won, by someone everybody looks upon to, someone that isn’t afraid of anyone, someone so royal that neither of these ladies are capable of touching them. Someone whose born to be more than just an ordinary girl, like all of you and the rest of the women in the locker room, and that woman is me!” She turned to the entrance way, as her anger still seeable, her crimson lips priced through as the microphone as she continued on. “Each and every single one of you ladies claim that you are the best, and that you can tear the house down at any given moment of the day, I dare you top step up right now and face me right here in this ring.” She waited fro someone to answer the challenge until she shrugged. “That’s what I thought. These are the people who your little kids look up too, who adults strive to be, but they need to realise that these ladies are all talk and no
Lucille Ball made every person laugh, and she spread happiness around like a wildfire. She made a huge impact on the world, she was a hard working woman who stopped at nothing to achieve her goals. “I don't suppose that hard work, discipline, and a perfectionist attitude toward my work did me any harm. They are a big part of my makeup today, as any of my co-workers will tell you. And when life seemed unbearable, I learned to live in my imagination, and to step inside other people's skins- indispensable abilities for an actress.” (Lucille Ball) Lucille Ball did what we all thought was impossible, she did what nobody expected her to even imagine.
It is said, “Some people create their own storms, then get upset when it rains”. This statement implies that some people create their own problems and then are confused when it all comes back to cause them distress. It proves accurate in the notion that when others are selfish, their very own actions can, in some instances, cause increasingly worse situations than what they were complaining of. This belief is one of the most predominant themes in the three texts that are being referred to in this essay. In “The Necklace,” “The Scarlet Ibis,” and “The Golden Kite, the Silver Wind,” the consequence of the characters’ selfishness lead to their eventual demise.
This all leads back to the main point of the world becoming corrupt and needing to be led into the next era; to do this, mapmakers have to step up and guide humanity. Another example of the corruption of modern society is the line “Our forgetfulness stalks us, walks the earth behind us, leav-/ing a trial of paper diapers, needles, and wasted blood” (Harjo 22-23). Paper diapers are
. .] it’s an indispensable part of the best of worlds, a necessary ingredient; if Columbus had not caught, on an American island, this sickness which attacks the source of generation and sometimes prevents nature entirely--which thus strikes at and defeats the greatest end of Nature herself--we should have neither chocolate nor cochineal” (Voltaire. Pangloss to Candide 361). Following the “knowledgeable” Pangloss, Candide then slowly started to truly see the real world at the cost of killing many people in the name of the “best of worlds”.
Through their revolting appearance, the furies develop relationships with the other characters which represent the worldview of Clytemnestra after her death. Since the furies represent Clytemnestra, they must look unpleasant to evoke a disgust from Orestes and Apollo which would replicate their disgust towards Clytemnestra. This physical detail therefore establishes the furies in relation to the rest of
After reading “The Hunger Games,” by Suzanne Collins, I believe that The Hunger Games world is an extreme dystopian society. According to ReadWriteThink, a dystopian society, which is an “imagined universe in which oppressive societal control and the illusion of a perfect society are maintained through corporate, bureaucratic, technological, moral, or totalitarian control,” exists when some characteristics exist (Dystopias: Definition and Characteristics). Collins used many of these characteristics mentioned in the ReadWriteThink paper to show that citizens of Panem live in a dystopia, and these characteristics are the restricted information, constant surveillance, dehumanized people and total control. Through the novel, the readers can
All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand.”(V.i.43-44). She is starting to smell the blood from when Macbeth and her took responsibility of King Duncan’s death. Lady Macbeth hasn’t felt as much guilt in the beginning like Macbeth. She starts feeling it more at the end, while her mind processes it. Lady Macbeth is also starting to be very mentally ill due to all the actions of
This was the most unkindest cut of all.” Antony decided to show the crowd the body of Caesar to correctly show what happened to him, but to also create emotion amongst the commoners. He created a sense of anger towards the people who stabbed Caesar, especially Brutus, as he was the one conspirator that Caesar never thought would betray him. Antony presented this as Brutus and the rest are traitors, and that is the way the commoners viewed it. This, amongst other reasons through their emotions, provoked them into taking revenge against the
I became known as the girl with the bad skin. My teachers would send me to the nurse, and only the other outcasts wanted to play with me. My peers would judgmentally tell me, “Your skin is gross!” I wanted to hide. Trying to explain that the dry, red patches confronting me in the mirror were a product of my own actions would only cause more embarrassment. My go-to excuse became “I got
