Viewing The Misfit as a tragic figure, we sympathize with his actions and feel remorse for who he has become. The readers see him as a victim and sympathize for his actions, including killing the elderly Grandmother. Although he is an awful person, because he is a male character, it is acceptable for him to have issues, but it is not acceptable for a woman to have any sort of issue. As the Misfits says, “She would have been a good woman...if it had been somebody there to shoot her every minute of her life” (O’Connor), this suggests that the Grandmother was an awfully annoying woman, but if she had a man there to keep her in line, she would have been a decent

Literary Critique In the story ”Who Am I Without Him” written by Sharon Flake, I Felt the author expressed the scene very well by bringing the situation to life through the characters actions. In the story ”Who Am I Without Him” the main Character was bad because that is who she is, and she thought to herself if there is something wrong with being herself.

Not only did her heart get shattered but she lost her love because she wanted to find a husband. Anaktoria betrayed Sappho’s love by going to find someone else’s love. She says: “you burn me” (Sappho “Fragment 38” p.77) This quotation shows us how Sappho felt the burn of betrayal after the loss of her love. Would Sappho’s words show this kind of anger if Anaktoria would have stayed? She also speaks about how she feels forgotten and how she wishes she wouldn’t be.
Alison was arrogant and mean and hated by many. She didn’t care what people thought, because she thought she was better than everybody. She said some awful things to people; awful enough to get her killed. So the next time you are proud of yourself, be proud. You can have your moment of being egotistic.
Paris exclaims,”See what a scourge is laid upon your hate, That heaven finds means to kill your joys with love. ”(Romeo and Juliet 5.3.293). Paris is illustrating that because the families let their hate for each other live on and grow into the lives of their children they are the ones to take the blame for Romeo and Juliet taking their lives. Paris states “And I, for winking at your discords too, Have lost a brace of kinsmen. ”(5.3.294-295).Paris then goes on to blame himself saying that if he had told them to quit the fighting he would not have lost his brothers.
“For the horrors of troy when they are the guilty ones they who destroy”(lines 30-33).Why this is relevant in our society is because people be like Eris. Because she blamed the Gods and Goddesses for her doing. Or like the “From Black Ships” “Eris,the goddess of discord, had been left out because wherever she went she brought trouble with her.” (paragraph 2).Where they didn 't invite her only because she is the goddess of discord. And that 's how people act just cause they don 't like someone or they bring a childish fight doesn 't mean they can not come.

We all have obsessions whether it is a hobby or sometimes a person. But sometimes our obsession over powers us, and causes us to act unusual. In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s, “The Birthmark,” Hawthorne introduces Aylmer, a man of science, who has an obsession over removing a birthmark on his wife, Georgiana’s, face.

Aylmer doesn’t realize it but not only is the birthmark an imperfection, the birthmark is also keeping Georgiana alive.
Well before Hatshepsut ruled in full capacity, she gained knowledge of how to rule during her adolescence and time as King’s Wife. The grouping of these two portions of Hatshepsut’s life is quite important because it was during this time that Hatshepsut learned how to rule and the matter of her birth would be of great use to her later in life. She was born a princess to the pharaoh Thutmose I, her father, and her mother, Ahmes or Ahmose. Ahmes was the pharaoh’s first royal wife which meant that she was his principal wife and thus she was his queen.
