Imagine you are taken from your home, mother, and environment to a small cage where everybody is looking at you, taking pictures, and having fun. Your owners sell you to a bad zoo where all animals only get food sometimes and the bare cages are cold because you’re getting too expensive to feed and even take care of. This is why I take the position that zoos should be banned because they can cause Animal cruelty, Too expensive, and finding new homes. Say no to zoos! One reason why Zoos should be banned is It can cause animal cruelty.
Can you imagine how horrible their punishment must be? Circuses must stop using animals as a part of their show as it cause harm to animals, cause numerous incidents and attacks that endanger both animals’ and human’s lives, and most importantly, violates animal rights as a living creature. As stated above, one very important case example is the tigers. The tigers got burn
The zoo feeds the animals you already have and feed them to natural predators, that’s wrong killing one of your own animals just to feed the big predators. They don’t know why you took them into the zoo they don’t even know why they were taking them into the zoo. Some zoos in your area don’t even have real kind of animals they just paint it on to make it look like the animal. That’s not fair to the animal or to the kid and the kids
Instead, its soft wings are used to strike against the bars hoping to break free. This leaves the bird with sore bleeding wings.”…the caged bird beats his wing, till its blood is red on the cruel bars”. Using this imagery, of the caged bird, the poet expresses the ordeal of African-Americans. For ages, they have been oppressed and enslaved by the whites. The iron bars represent the systematic racism that has prevented them to live a normal life.
For instance, the animals, under the command of Napoleon and Snowball, declare the Battle of Cowshed to end humans’ dominance over them at the Manor Farm. They choose brutal methods to torment their enemies, whom they consider as tyrants. Moreover, during the battle, Boxer, a naïve and strong male horse, accidently kills a boy. This proves the recklessness of violent behavior and how people engaged in a violent conflict target everyone, including the innocent such as children. Therefore, the violent behavior of the pigs and other animals once again reminds the reader of human cruelty, which makes it impossible for a utopic society to
The poem begins with Dante lost in the woods and attacked by a lion, a leopard, and a she-wolf symbolizing pride, envy, and avarice. He is essentially forced off his path towards heaven which is represented by a mountain. The entire journey recorded in the Divine Comedy is a depiction of mankind’s fall into sin before achieving redemption and eventual salvation. In my opinion, Dante’s life on earth had become his own personal hell. Therefore, the first installment of the Divine Comedy is his way of sharing that, all the while exposing the corruption of society to the world.
“We have a disharmony in our natures. We cannot live together without injuring each other.” (Golding, 1954) William Golding backs up this statement completely in his novel Lord of the Flies. We quickly see a group of young boys stranded on a desert island, lose civilisation and descent into chaos resulting in horrific tragedies. This essay will discuss the way in which Golding illustrates the movement from order to chaos through the use of symbolism in Lord of the Flies. The symbols include the conch, piggy’s glasses and the beast.
He was scared when seeing the scorpion-men. He who used to protect his people from Humbaba and the Bull of Heaven now was protected from lions by Sin, the moon god. In the part of his search for everlasting life, the description of Gilgamesh’s appearance is repeated many times. “His cheeks were so hollow and face was so sunken. His mood was so wretched, and his visage was so wasted.
Today, the idealistic nature of love presented in the poems seems a bit obsessive. However, at the time, society did not look at this as obsessive, but rather as a heroic act. For instance, in “When the Sweet Air Turns Bitter,” the poet states that “nothing fills me with such longing / As the thing I cannot have,” yet still refuses to “tell her my desire” (Medieval 2, pg. 2). Naturally, if the speaker of the poem was completely in love with a woman and tormented by this feeling, but refused to tell her anything, it would traditionally be looked at as obsessive to a certain extent.
Due to the brutal nature and darkness in all of the boys’ hearts, the island becomes destroyed after they have inhabited it, just like the Garden of Eden. Fire Contrast to the word ‘darkness’, the subject of study in this essay, the fire is another essential symbol that stands for hope and man’s dependence. It also plays a significant role in bringing out the innate evil in the boys. Golding creates the impression the fire has its own life, comparing the fire to different animals, first squirrels then jaguars. He uses phrases such as ‘scrambled up’ and ‘began to gnaw ’ to emphasise this effect.
