In addition, it is clear that the rabbits want very much to stop plowing their way through the seemingly endless heather and to simply return to the warren. However, the rabbits, especially Hazel, know that it would be extremely dangerous to return to the warren. Because of this, the rabbits travel for several more hours before finally coming to the end of the heather and emerging on the other side. The rabbits are resilient because instead of giving up and going back to the dangerous warren, they work their way through the heather to what they believe is a much safer place than both their warren and the
After reading Egnar Allan Poe’s dramatic story “Hop Frog” many people were asking, “is Hop-Frog justified to do what he did?” People can argue about it all day, but I believe Hop-Frog is justified. The king was relentless in his attacks against Hop-frog, Hop-frog killed him out of self defense, Hop-frog had to get his life with Triappetta back to normal. Imagine being a cripple, dwarf, and a jester. Having just one of those stacked against you would devastate almost everyone on Earth. Unfortunately, Hop-frog has all three of those obstacles going against him.
He said… an’ hide in the brush till he come. He’s gonna be mad.” (92). This shows that Lennie is a level one when judged on Kohlberg’s Stages of Moral Reasoning because his actions are all based on how George’s reaction will be and if George will be mad or not. Stage one of level one Kohlberg’s Stages of Moral Reasoning is Obedience and Punishment Orientation. This is the stage where the individual is good to avoid being punished and if someone is being punished that means that they have done bad.
What causes a king in to considering violence? First, I believe that the fear of failure make kings to consider violence as an easier solution to achieve their long wished success. A brutal but easy way to handle the problems that does not affect the king so much. In the story of Macbeth you can clearly how he is noble and when he is chosen by the three witches to
Of Mice and Men use conflict to display external conflict within Curley and Lennie. After all George and Lennie had been through a new problem shows up when they appear at the ranch. When they meet Curley automatically does not like Leenie considering Curley does not at all admire huge men. Shortly into the story Curley gets outraged with Lennie and starts a fight. During the fight, George says, “‘Get him Lennie’.... Curley’s fist was swinging when Lennie reached for it … and his closed fist lost in Lennie's big hand”(Steinbeck 63).
All around the land are snares and wires set out to capture the rabbits living there. Fiver is proven correct once more when Bigwig, another rabbit, is caught in one of the numerous snares and is hurt. In addition, Fiver also foreshadows the harm that is to come to Hazel when he sets out on a mission to retrieve does for his warren. “‘But there’s something that frightens me about you yourself, Hazel: just you, not any of the others. You’re all alone, sharp and clear, like a dead branch against the sky’” (209).

Lennie was too strong for his own good, his obsession with petting soft things was a danger to others. The “trouble with mice is that [Lennie] always kill ‘em” (13). Lennie’s inability to control his strength made him a danger to society, meaning the only option was to kill him in order to prevent Lennie from harming others. Additionally Lennie has no ability to think for himself making him easy to manipulate and control making it easier to force him into doing bad things. George turned “to Lennie and says ‘jump in’ An’ [Lennie jumped].
In The Crucible, logic and reason play an active role as the counterpart to the fear that fills the Puritan society and the characters themselves. The characters Proctor and Hale represent the voice of reason against the voices of fear. Though they are outnumbered by those who give in to the paranoia, they stick with what they believe is right despite knowing they will become a pariah. On the other hand, Danforth and Parris represent the driving forces of fear and paranoia that plagues the minds of the people in their society. Society’s reaction to their driving force is to comply because to do otherwise is to be an outcast, and to be an outcast could get one killed.
He talks about how it is better to be hated than to loved if it will benefit you, “Here a question arises: whether it is better to be loved than feared, or the reverse...anyone compelled to choose will find greater security in being feared than in being loved. . . . Love endures by a bond which men, being scoundrels, may break whenever it serves their advantage to do so; but fear is supported by the dread of pain, which is ever present” (Machiavelli, 60).
So remember this is through woundwort’s POV. To him and his views, he could never accept such an offer. Quote about their different leadership styles (theme) 44- Imagery about woundwort’s army trying to infiltrate their way into the honeycomb. 46- imagery about the battle between woundwort and bigwig 47- So woundwort’s idea of a leader (big, strong bunny like bigwig) scares him when he finds out that bigwig isn’t the leader. He thinks that he might lose and sends another rabbit (Vervain) to fight him.
Humphrey Dunfee is an urban legend intended to scare kids (think: Candyman or the witch 's uvula). It 's first mentioned in Chapter 7, as if kids who are going to be unwound need more to be scared of. The legend says that Humphrey Dunfee 's parents regret unwinding their son, so they 're hunting down pieces of him and rebuilding him, Frankenstein 's monster-style. At the end of the legend, the futility of the mission is addressed. "All the king 's horses and all the king 's men…couldn 't put Humphrey together again" (2.19.173).
Peter has a history of torturing squirrels and Valentine is disgusted by this behavior. He also threatens to kill his younger brother and sister after finishing a game of Buggers and Aliens when he tried to choking Ender to death and Valentine stepped in. Valentine refers to when Peter lashed out in chapter nine page 130, she says “come on, threaten to kill me again, Peter.” while he is is being fake and trying to be kind to Valentine because he wants her to write the essays with him. The lyrics “Am I scaring you tonight? Your mind is in Disturbia” describes Peter because he is mentally not there, and for a minute he scares his younger siblings because of it.
The side that I am choosing is that George should have killed Lennie because Lennie can’t live by himself, he is mentally challenged, and Curley would have killed him anyway if George didn 't. Lennie is mentally challenged and he likes to talk to dead animals and other different things. He gets in trouble a lot and can 't really do anything by himself because he will always be getting in trouble if he is by himself. “Jus wanted to feel that girl’s dress-jus wanted to pet it like it was mouse(Steinbeck 11). The quote proves my reason because Lennie got both George and Lennie in trouble because he wanted to feel a girls dress.
