Abigail’s self centered mentality is the reason why she uses fallacies to assert her dominance over others. For example, Abigail uses the Argument ad Baculum fallacy to force Mercy and Mary into submission. Before the usage of the fallacy, Abigail was pestering the girls to have the same story of the night before so she would not get into trouble for doing witchcraft. Suddenly, Betty regains consciousness and shouts about how Abigail was practicing witchcraft. Instead of Abigail finding a way to distress the situation, she violently attacks Betty.
My fury at this senseless brutality was hard to control. I had strong desire to attack the attackers, and I stormed outside with that intent.” Sultana was not a woman who would not back down when one of her own was profoundly brutalized. Amongst the three nephews who attacked the young girl, two were not even ashamed of their disgusting act.
Cloaked in her own image, Brides attempts to stand upright in a crooked room can be seen as both resilience or fragility.

What would you do if your little sister suddenly became possessed? I finished the book Bad Girls Don’t Die by Katie Alender. The main character, Alexis (or Lexi), has recently seen changes in her little sister, Kasey.

“Worry, strain, shock...may all poison the blood of the enslaved mother...poisoned blood may produce a defective baby”(“The Children’s Era”). Margaret Sanger uses these words to show the poor reputation and doomed outlook enslaved women and their children are given. If birth control were available to these women there would be a fewer number of unsuccessful humans. Sanger later pulls on the emotions of her audience by agonizing over the helpless souls of unborn babies who dream of a bright future that is out of their reach. These babies could be protected from harsh situations if provided an option to control birth.
A significant scene of death in Fahrenheit 451 is when the city is bombed. The city was bombed, because the nation that Guy Montag lived in was at war with another. Even though the government had tried to brainwash everyone to create a “perfect” society, but the society was far from perfect as there was still war. No matter what humanity will never be perfect. While everything may not ever be completely perfect things can always be perfected and made better.
“Because I was really white and because a cruel fairy stepmother, who was understandably jealous of my beauty, had turned me into a too-big Negro girl, with nappy black hair, broad feet and a space between her teeth that would hold a number-two pencil” (pg. 3). I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is Maya Angelou’s autobiography of her early life, growing into a young woman, and finding herself in the process. Maya Angelou grew up in the time of Segregation, trying to discover who she was separated from the rest of the world. With only her brother Bailey, and her grandmother, “Momma,” to take solace in, for most of her early life she felt as though she had no friends. The title is a metaphor.
ition. Kreon sides with Eteocles, and furious, Polynices wages war. After Eteocles and Polynices stab each other, Kreon obtains the title of “king” and has to be in charge of the brothers’ burials. He wants to only bury Eteocles because he considers Polynices a traitor. The fact that Antigone was willing to bury her brother was brave, and her bravery is one of the many reasons why Sophocles was correct in naming the third part in his trilogy, Antigone. As aforementioned, Antigone’s gallantry has come to deserve the title of Sophocles’s second surviving written play, Antigone.
Piedmont, California the thirty-first of August was a day Dipper both loved and hated. It meant he had survived another year without Bill Cipher rearing his triangular head, but that he was a year closer to that eventuality. On one particular paranoid night, Dipper ground up moonstone and unicorn hair into a mystical ink; then he slipped out to a shady tattoo parlor with a fake id and two years worth of saved allowance. Now, six months after that incident Dipper was trying to figure out how to hide the ward he had inscribed on his left arm from his parents. It wouldn't be a problem, but Mable thought it would be a good idea to have her sweet sixteen on the beach.
Hatred has always been around in history, including from all of our literature that we’ve read this semester, and what we’ve learned. Some, more than others. And some still to this day. In our Holocaust unit, there has been many, many examples of hatred, but I’ll talk about the hatred from Defiance.
