In “My Papa’s waltz,” the author used alliteration of /s/ (still and shirt). In “Grape Sherbet,” the author used alliteration of /t/ (trying and taste)/. “Then waltzed me off to bed/ Still clinging to your shirt” (line 15 and 16). “I’ve been trying/ to remember the taste,/ but it doesn’t exist./ Now I see why/ you bothered,/ father” (line 25-30). The child try to teach the father waltzing but while they are doing it the father messed things up.
The government killed a 14 year old boy who was probably just needed help of was mentally insane! That right there shows that the government would go to the extreme measures of killing two people to just have equality. In the text it says,”It was then that Diana Moon Glampers, the Handicapper General, came into the studio with a double-barreled ten-gauge shotgun. She fired twice, and the Emperor and the Empress were dead before they hit the floor.” The government shot and killed a fourteen year old for just challenging
Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else.” In this passage Vonnegut shows how irrational such principals can be and how impossible to achieve absolute equality unless by handicapping the brightest citizens and bringing their abilities down to level of the “average “people. The story mimics the way Americans perceived communism and Soviet Union at that point of history where schools introduced courses to students such as Communism Vs. Americanism in order to wage the propaganda war, this paranoid climate was the result of many factors, one of them is the establishment of a communist government in Cuba by the rebellious Fidel Castro with the support of the USSR .the idea of having a government based on such principles just nine miles away from the US left Americans in a state of panic
Kurt Vonnegut's Harrison Bergeron is a short story published in 1961 that I would describe as having the theme of futuristic-science-fiction. The short is set in the year 2081 where in the United States new amendments to the constitution has equalized all humans. Although, the author does not mention how this dystopia came to be and if the rest of the world has equalized all human beings, it is clear to me that in this dystopia, equality is an illusion, equality is not real. As I read this short, it became more and more evident to me that this society was strange, and when I finished the short, I was convinced that this society was conformed to act and think in the way that they do, which unfortunately, for a country in year 2081, that claims
Body paragraph 2 : The second piece of evidence that support my theme is “ It was then that Diana Moon Glampers, the handicapper General, came into the studio with a double-barreled ten-gauge shotgun. She fired twice, and the emperor and the empress were dead before they hit the floor. Diana moon glampers loaded the gun again. She aimed it at them musician and told them they had ten seconds to get their handicaps back on”. The reasoning behind my evidence is that, this specific piece explains how Diana Moon Glampers shot the emperor and empress just because they tried to be different and they didn 't want to wear the handicaps.
The traditional musical is supposed to be uplifting and have happy endings as the traditional musicals explored themes of the American dream. In the end of Sweeney Todd, Sweeney finally gets his revenge on judge Turpin however he finds out that he kills his wife Lucy in the process and as he holds her dead body his throat gets slit. In Buffy the Vampire Slayer after Buffy defeated the main antagonists a demon named Sweet this however, is not seen as a real victory by Buffy and her friends, because whilst they were singing and dancing they gave away all of their secrets causing conflict within the group. These are both unhappy endings unlike the traditional ending from the golden era of musicals. Another similarity these two musicals have is that the both have is counterpoint duet.
From time to time in the play, Macbeth, we as the audience saw a plethora of changes, from the king Duncan 's horrid murder as well as Lady Macbeth going mentally insane. Above all, I felt as though the character who has grown tremendously would be the late Duncan 's son Malcolm. Malcolm, in the beginning of the play, Macbeth, was very afraid of being accused of his father 's death (along with his brother) and fled to England. While in England, Malcolm tested Macduff, who is an honorable and loyal friend, to see if he could trust him. This showed the audience remarkable improvement since his cowardly flee from Macbeth 's castle,therfore, the audience seemed notice his leadership start to arise.
In Macbeth, by William Shakespeare, Macbeth, one of the main characters in the play is a very ambitious person who is unable to be grateful for the power he already sustains. Thinking about what the witches had prophesied for Banquo’s son being the next king after Macbeth, angers angers. After a kong conversation between Lady Macbeth and Macbeth, Macbeth comes to a conclusion about what to do about Banquo and his sons, telling his wife that , “There’s comfort yet; they are assailable.Then be thou jocund. Ere the bat hath flown His cloister 'd flight, ere to black Hecate’s summons The shard-borne beetle with his drowsy hums Hath rung night’s yawning peal, there shall be done”(Act 2.Scene 3.line 44-45). Macbeth at first cannot decide what
People may state that the Handicapped-General was the real danger and Harrison was just trying to show she was by going on live television. The quotation, "It was then that Diana Moon Glampers, the Handicapper Genera, came into the with a double-barreled ten-gauge shotgun. She fired twice, and the Emperor and the Empress were dead before they hit the floor. Diana Moon Glampers loaded the gun again. She aimed it at the musicians and told them they had ten seconds to get their handicaps back on.
At that young age, he plans to overthrow the government who controllingly lords over him and the rest of America. In the dancing studio, after a surprising entrance, he fearlessly claims to the whole population watching, “I am the Emperor! Do you hear? I am the Emperor! Everybody must do what I say at once!” Even though the United States Handicapper General harshly handicaps him, Harrison does not surrender his values or free-thinking.
