To give one example of manipulation, Flannery O'Connor, Georgia State author of "A Good Man Is Hard to Find", writes that "You wouldn't shoot a lady, would you?"(421). The grandmother is trying to make the misfit vulnerable, even though he has already killed everyone but her. She's begging the misfit for her life. Every one of those people would still be alive if it was not for the grandmother. She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways.
Society determines what is civilized and what is barbaric and how it uses its morals, or lack thereof, to determine how individuals should live. Unfortunately, it affects how people view others and how they judge themself. In The Kite Runner, Amir sees himself as barbaric because of how he is seen. On page 77, Amir thinks, “ I ran because I was a coward.” He knows what Baba, or Rahim Kahn, or how any Afghan would treat him or what they would call him if they had seen him run away from Hassan being raped. He almost accepts that he is in the wrong and should be ridiculed.
When most humans finally achieve revenge they don’t consider the aftermath. However in the story of Hamlet it illustrate that on pg 343 lines 64-71 “Does it not, think thee, stand me now upon- He that hath killed my king and whored my mother… to let this canker of our nature come in further evil?” This quote explain how Hamlet has the desire to avenge his father because of the treason that Claudius did to Hamlet’s father but also how he took Hamlet rightful place as King. So now Hamlet want revenge for two things his father and for the throne. In Hamlet once again on pg lines “what would you undertake to show yourself … Revenge should have have no bounds.” This quote tells us how strong revenge is and Claudius tells us it has no limits. The aftermath of obtaining revenge will affect humans some type of
He was probably teetering on the brink of for and against the trials, when his wife was accused and it put him over the edge. After this he came out against the Salem Witch Trials, proclaiming them hysteric. Years later, he published a book commenting on the witch trials. Although the book never denies that witches are real, his book did say that the fear that everyone felt that people were compelled to believe the girls’ accusations, “Such was the darkness of the day, the tortures and lamentations of the afflicted, and the power of the former presidents, that we walked in the clouds, and could not see our way. And we have most cause to be humbled for error on that hand, which cannot be retrieved.” This quote shows Hale admitting his wrongs, and apologizing for his errors.
I think the focal point of the speech was him looking at his own morality. He was empathizing in his speech was that even though a great many people looked up to him and admire him he was not be idolized because he is just a man and like all men there will be a day when he will die and that it would take each and every one to continue to fight after he is gone. I with think he was giving hope to people hope that through his vision he saw that their goal would be achieved in the fight for equality and that they shouldn’t be discouraged with the challenges that they were currently facing because through their continues fight this will be
From a happy marriage to the MacBeths no longer having love in their relationship and only having fear, guilt and hunger for power. Through it all would you consider Lady Macbeth’s suicide was a cowardly case? MacBeth did not care about who he had to kill in order to be high and powerful. You can see his obsession to become the king and have that title, just by hearing the witches prophecy.”All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, thane of Glamis!
Old Man Warner chooses to avoid the fact that change is possible and that younger generations will choose whether they continue tradition or not. When being told that in other town lotteries have been ended, he argues that they are fools and that “they’ll be wanting to live in caves..” This shows Jackson use of irony. When thinking of those who live in caves, we think of neanderthals; savage, grunting humans. However, through the killing of a citizen, THEY are shown to be the true savages, not the ones who decided to end the lottery. The one individual who was revealed to be the one to be stones, would soon see the end of their
