Richard Parker is a very unique and unorthodox character that has not seized to amaze so far. His human like qualities can be shown throughout the book so far and come out in a variation of ways. One of his very distinctive qualities that can be associated with a human from Richard Parker is Isolation from Pi and the other animals. He mainly stays under the tarpool and does not interact. He formed his own boundary from those around him which can be associated with humans needing their space or looking for some peace.
To illustrate, the creation said while reciting his tale to Victor “And what was I? Of my creation and creator I was absolutely ignorant, but I knew that I possessed no money, no friends, no kind of property. I was, besides, endued with a figure hideously deformed and loathsome; I was not even of the same nature as man” (Shelley 85). In this quote, it can be seen that
The contrast at the beginning, when Priestly is outlining the stage setting, “heavily comfortable... not cozy”. This emphasizes the fact how everything is materialistic, and only for show, nothing they own hold any personal values, which could imply the relationships between Mr. and Ms. Birling and Sheila and Gerald, are only for show and are being used
Hope is easily the most abstract concept to describe, as it can never be fully expressed, neither in words nor in deed. Decay, however, is always the same. In reference to hope, decay is a constant. Decay will slowly eat away at any hope, and if given enough time, will leave nothing but dust. Hope, however, is ever-changing, able to lead an individual to several different outcomes.
‘Hence the miniature is often a material allusion to a text which is no longer available to us, or which, because of its fictiveness, never was available to us except through a second- order fictive world’ . These objects become performative in that they become a stage for our projections: however projections of past or fictive realities can only ever be played out in the psyche. Therefore we are always left with a sense of longing for that which we cannot
Vagueness When a definition is vague it has no specific meaning for the intended audience. Happiness is a continuation of happenings which are not resisted. To think is to practice brain chemistry. A person is a pattern of behavior, of a larger awareness. Notice that none of these definitions give us any clarity as to what the defined term actually means.
It is an alien thing because it was something that was not or could not be identified as belonging to any one single enframing discourse. It was alien from all our discourses. It had no discursive home-base, as it were. Kubrick works this to great effect, since we never meet the supposed ‘creators’ of the monoliths (or perhaps the monoliths are sentient beings themselves) and are not given any real clue as to who or what they are, adding to the mystery of the film (and spawning many speculations and discussions since about the meaning of the monoliths and the film more
We now find ourselves in just that situation . . . stranded on a finite planet of dwindling abundance in the infinity of the Universe, devouring everything in our way, refusing to curb our appetites, oblivious to the dark future we are certainly creating. We have not changed much where it counts the
The actions of the unknown citizen may be viewed as actions of a person without a purpose for life, so, consequently, by creating the perfect citizen, Auden ultimately creates an imperfect character. Such is said by Arvind Deshmukh on his in-depth discussion on “The Unknown Citizen”, “The Unknown Citizen is nobody. He has no individuality. That is why he is 'unknown citizen ' -he is anybody. He is not a free human being.
He has illustrated a society of people that are in a condition in which the people of the town exist in an irrational and meaningless universe where human life has no ultimate meaning. He uses characters like self-proclaimed rational Botard, all knowledgeable logician and many others to demonstrate such an illogical society. In the first act of the play, a logician is introduced who is speaking with an old man and their conversation is paralleled with that of two friends Jean and Berenger. It is apparent that the so called logician uses no logic at all. All he says in the name of logic is actually illogical.
The State of California v. George Milton Dear ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I ask you to do one thing, imagine. Imagine you were in a foreign country with no money, friends, or possessions. Imagine you cannot speak the language and the culture is completely different than your natural environment. Imagine you have no control over your strength and you share your emotions in a dissimilar way. Imagine you are always dependent on someone else; you shadow their every step and word.
A world without culture, creativity, and connection is soul-less. There is a loss of some higher form of expression that separates a living human from a living shell of one. This form of expression can be caught in literature, music, and dance, but also in opposition, arguments and differences. To selectively avoid the negative side of this reality is to deny an important part of actually living as a human. This is why in the novel Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury’s use of connotations associated with machines and society against those associated with mirrors and nature in the work reveals how society’s rejection of unfair reality in favor of a false utopia of equality dehumanizes the population.
The grid can also never create a “city within a city” as it spreads itself in the same pattern wherever the lines crosses and creates a city where every block is connected and homogenous in a convenient but nevertheless dull manner. Koolhaas likely is aware these deficiency in the grid’s implementation on Manhattan as he labels Manhattansim a blueprint and conjecture to justify it’s
