He brought it to the United States. It was his biggest success and still to this day hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Leutze spent the rest of his life painting some other famous paintings, including his self portrait now hanging in the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.

However not all pride in these two books is bad. In The Crucible, John Proctor has so much pride that not only did it cost the life of others but it also cost him his own and in The Scarlet Letter the minister, Arthur Dimmesdale’s pride also caused him to perish. On the other hand, Hester Prynne’s pride in the book made her a hero and a strong character to admired by readers. In The Crucible, John Proctor is
I don’t think it’s right to euthanize people with mental disabilities because they’re still people and they still have hope for a better future and their life is still important even if it doesn’t seem like it. I do agree with George killing Lennie because Lennie would die a really harsh, painful, and slow death by the other men that were trying to find him if George didn’t calm him down and shoot him. Of course, it was the biggest plot twist in the whole book and it broke our hearts, but George did if for the best. In conclusion, George did the right thing and actually helped Lennie instead of harming him and others around
“wide,” “black,” aspect of the house, and the description of the “solemn oaks” creates an ominous tone. Madame Valmonde’s shivering suggests that the L’Abri plantation is dark, cold, and ghostly place. Further, the way the plantation looks musicians Armand’s own certerristics just as Desiree’s external appearance mimics her internal character (owleyes.org...2/4). Another example of tone in “Desiree’s Baby” is “in the shadow of the big stone pillar….”. In rural Louisiana, a massive stone pillar would seem fairly conspicuous.
After reading Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven,” connotations were noticeably used. With love of writing horror and dark stories, Edgar Allen Poe wrote “The Raven” about a loss of a member of his life along with other miserable stories in his life. Dreary is an important connotation because it gives a dull, bleak, and lifeless like the poem expressed.

The faint figure behind seemed to shake the pattern, just as if she wanted to get out” (Gilman 26, 22). The wallpaper symbolizes domination and a psychological prison. Additionally, the yellow color of the wallpaper symbolizes inferiority. In the end, the protagonist’s mind is freed when she has removed most of the paper, which represents
He uses metaphors, allusions, and similes. One use of imagery in ‘The Raven” is “Once upon a midnight dreary…”(1). “To the fowl whose fiery eyes now burned into my bosom’s core”(74) is an example of a metaphor. These help with the understanding of what is trying to be conveyed to the reader. In ‘Annabel Lee” the Figurative language does not stand out as much because of the different format and structure of the poem.
When you turn on the nightly news and all you see is the bad in the world, the hurt, and the corruption that has engulfed us as a society, it is nice to see someone do something not because they will get paid or become famous, but because they know its simple the right thing to do. This story fits the concept of a hero most similar to Bernardo’s explaination of a hero. Riggs’ saved his family and risked his life not because thats what people would expect but because he had the responsiblity to take care of them. Just like Bernardo states, he did this “because he loves them and wants to”. Riggs displayed the kind of courage it takes to be a hero.

Final Analysis Report on Holden Caulfield Depressed, Schizophrenic, Psychotic, Crazy, and many more are some of the words used when describing Holden Caulfield’s mental state. Holden continuously isolates himself from others as well as the society he lives in, has many acts of uncontrollable anger, and attempts to run away from New York to isolate himself even more than before. In The Catcher in the Rye, Holden indicates that he is telling the story, his story from a mental hospital, “This madman stuff that happened to me around last Christmas just before I got pretty run-down and had to come out here and take it easy (Salinger, 1).”
This world is full of many uncertainties. Some are pleasant surprises, while others become life-altering tragedies. Kevin Hazzard portrays such beautiful disasters in his book “A Thousand Naked Strangers,” which recalls his unimaginably insane encounters as an EMT and paramedic in Atlanta, Georgia. He witnessed pain and suffering, but also beauty and freedom. He claims that the chaos and unpredictability is what made his job worth doing.
During the time of 1492; 15th century in Spain, Christopher Columbus was preparing for his journey to explore the other side of the world. While exploring in the name of Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand of Spain, Columbus discovered the Americas and claimed the land for Spain (Hakim 78). On top of this, Columbus started an agricultural revolution between the old and new world (in this case Spain and the Americas) (Hakim 82). Spain received new foods while the Americas gained new foods and animals. Columbus, the man, has proven that he should be remembered as negative because of the actions he committed such as enslaving the Taino people, murdering the innocent and claiming land that was not his to claim in the first place.
