Orson Scott Card uses the character of Ender to help demonstrate the pressure that human society puts on its youth to succeed today, through Symbolism, Imagery and Catharsis. Catharsis Is used multiple times to show the stress and pressure put on Ender. Usually Catharsis in the novel is the result of Ender’s Stress. A scene in the novel where Catharsis is importantly shown, is the scene when Ender is confronting Colonel graff, and Mazer Rackham, after finding out his
The song then goes on and says how the “flames got higher” which represents how love can turn for the worst and how it can only get worse. The next line goes on and says “The taste of love is sweet” which tells us that love can be for the good and can bring out the best of us within.
Ender also has so much empathy that he would think like the buggers, and could understand and anticipate them. This was one of the reasons why he was the perfect choice to be the commander. He also had a tremendous amount of guilt after (unknowingly) killing all the buggers and the pilots he and the squad leaders had controlled. This guilt would only be resolved when Ender finds a purpose as Speaker for the Dead and finding a safe place for the egg to
Peter often enjoyed the pain and agony of Valentine and Ender when he would threaten death upon the both of them. He influenced many people not only to see things his way, but also tricked them into scheming with him, such as Valentine with the political writings. Multiple times we see Ender saying things like, “I am just like Peter. Take my monitor away, and I am just like Peter”(Card). It quickly becomes clear that Ender wants nothing to do with Peter and wishes to be nothing like him.
He is reminded of his mother praying over his body as a child. That in turn evoked an image of revenge against his personal tormentor and brother, Peter (Card 87). Ender is reminded of, not of the message of Christian peace, but of righteous war and death. This vengeful mental picture is a consequence of Peter's identity in Ender and casts aspersions on his intent. In an essay entitled “Ender and Hitler: Sympathy for the Superman,” Elaine Radford, using these vengeful images and other clues, claims that Orson Scott Card wrote Ender as metaphor to Hitler.
They arranged the simulations for Ender and technically made him kill off the species. Everything that Ender had to do in Command School, was set up by the adults in the story. Around the end of the story when Ender was “playing” his final “game” Maezr told him that he would be fighting him. Not some completely real alien species! How do you just kill off an entire possibly sentient species?
Many show love in the ways we hope to receive love but that assumes your partner defines love the same way you do. Like music, love’s essence isn’t captured by focusing on what it is but on what it does to people. Love has no labels; there may be different kinds of it, but they don’t have titles and they aren’t
2.9 Personal Response Chelsea Sherry-Tau Title: Same Love Singer/Songwriter: Macklemore featuring Ryan Lewis Text: Song When the song, Same Love, was released in 2012 by rappers and singers Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, there was a lot of controversy within social media about whether the song spoke of good or bad morals. The song’s intention is to educate those in society who still don’t understand how to gain equality for homosexuals and how to accept everybody’s sexual preferences. I appreciated how the lyrics included different ideas that value the intention. The song questioned about whether we should reassess society’s look on religion, and also expressed on how everyone deserves to have equal rights and be accepted, and how society
Deon never forgets her love, yet they are permanently apart in physical. Right after this line, she says love is infinite that is never ends. She says, “Near, far, wherever you are, I believe that the heart does go on, once more you open the door, and you're here in my heart, and my heart will go on and on.” In this line, she explains it doesn't matter near or far, once true love happens it will deeply root in the heart. For example, Deon’s love is unending, and her feeling towards love stays same until her death.Throughout the song, the tone remains hopeful, positive, and heart touching. Dion’s love toward her dear is true and
The transcendentalist view of the "divine universe".' The world is a temple whose walls are covered with emblems' (Emerson) " Transcendentalism is an American literary, political, and philosophical movement of the early nineteenth century, centered around Ralph Waldo Emerson. Other important transcendentalists were Henry David Thoreau, Margaret Fuller, Amos Bronson Alcott, Frederic Henry Hedge, and Theodore Parker." Transcendentalism appeared as a response against Unitarianism which is based on the theory that God is only one and the fact that people, who are the his sons, are not able to decide their life or after life. Transcendentalism also appeared as a response against the influence of John Locke, who considered the mind to be a
