The Wicked Witch of the West sees them coming and sends out wolves, crows, bees and monkeys to destroy them. The Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman were broken into pieces. Dorothy and the Cowardly Lion were captured and taken to her palace. Dorothy was to be a slave in the palace. Being meek and not knowing the power of the Silver Slippers she did what the Witch commanded.
Why would Richard? This God Granny teaches about seems cruel and merciless like the white world surrounding Richard. Granny stresses condemnation will follow those who do not follow the teachings of God and by God. Granny strikes fear into
Look at her God-given innocence; her soul is so tender; we must protect her, Tituba; the Devil is out and preying on her like a beast upon the mesh of the pure lamb. God will bless you for your help¨. Before this moment, Hale is talking to some ¨children¨ and is very rash about everything that is spoken by them and believed word for word. Hale being naive and very passive, he did not know how to control the situation at hand. Being naive and gullible trapped Hale from being able to rationalize and how later in the play, the hysteria of witches within the town would later convict innocent people to their death.
Like the reporters and camera men at the time, this book provides in great detail what atrocities occurred during the war. “Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried is a montage of graphic scenes.”(pen.org). Because of its graphic violence and abundant use of profanity, The Things They Carried has been banned and challenged throughout the United States. In Troup, Texas 2016, a mother of an AP English student claimed that the book was “complete garbage, trash” and that it contains “nothing…that will benefit [students] physically, emotionally — mentally, morally, spiritually to be used as an educational tool.” (cbldf.org). Because of this challenge to the book, the principal decided that all questionable content regarding student curriculum will be disclosed to parents beforehand.
Bertram Cates and Malala Yousafzai are too perfect examples of people standing alone to benefit the community. Both are challenging the education system the way it was. Many deeply hated the things that were being challenged by Cates and Malala . Though more extreme than what Bertram Cates experienced Malala relates to him because of the negative reaction and the shunning she receives from the community. One time when driving in the back of a truck a member of the Taliban came up and shot Malala.
He explains, “There is Hell’s wide gaping mouth open (Page 2)”. This implies that Hell is a wide mouth waiting to swallow those who disobey God. It also conveys that people should follow God’s rules in order to avoid going to Hell or being swallowed by Hell’s open mouth, which awaits them. Edwards daunts his believes into following God in order to get into heaven and avoid Hell. He makes Hell seem like the worst thing ever imagined and that God is willing to send people there for not believing/ following him.
Later in the story, when Inigo and Fezzick find Westley “almost dead,” they bring him to a wizard named “Miracle Max” and his wife, a witch. Previously demoted by Prince Humperdinck, Max’s need to destroy him is motivation to assist Westley. The interaction between the witch and Max provide comic relief to the obvious peril that the characters are under. The goofy and fun-loving roles that these “witches” take on illustrate how unrealistic this scene is. They treat his death casually, concocting a chocolate pill in order to resurrect Westley, as if this was a natural solution to the problem.
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.
Esperanza calls out, shouting, “Sally, make him stop”, but her friend ignores her pleas (Cisneros 123). The man distracted Sally, resulting in her friend being scarred beyond all measure. The men overpowered Sally’s mind, causing her to fail her duty as a womanly protector. In addition, Esperanza places full blame on Sally because she “never came for [her]”, breaking her promise to return to Esperanza's side (Cisneros 123). Esperanza relies on Sally to protect her from the dangers in her community that she cannot face herself, and Sally’s renege left her truly defenseless.
In the second selection, we have: partition (separation from the outside/American world), modesty (religious adherence in a largely atheistic world), blessed (having superpowers as well as the responsibility that comes with), warpath (the villains, both “foreign”- evil-doers with superpowers now threatening her city - and “domestic” - the people who discriminate against her, her family, and her community for being “outsiders”), radioactive (all those affected by the tirigen gas and their reactions to acquiring superpowers, some positive like Kamala and some negative), gone (having to disappear, in many ways, from Kamala’s regular life in order to lead her “super” life), answer (finding how one - either Kamala, Bruno, Nakia, or any other character for that matter - can fit themselves into the society within which they exist). Here, in much the same way, we have an understanding of the plot on this particular page without even looking at the images accompanying the words, words that are within this context almost entirely gone. Each word can be seen to link directly to the themes found within the pages of this and all
Kingsolver’s first goal of the Poisonwood Bible is proposing how an individual could make peace with the aftermath of their worst mistakes and flaws, as shown through the voices of the Price girls. Kingsolver’s decision to leave Nathan Price voiceless represents the seemingly untouchable arrogance and offensiveness of large powers that drag peaceful innocents into conflict for their own gain. Nathan has no voice because Kingsolver wanted him to be viewed from the outside. Nathan is the uncontrollable darkness that festers in humanity; he is the crimes of a previous generation that are inherited by a new, unsympathetic one that is helpless to change its past and must come to terms with it. Therefore Kingsolver’s main goal of the Poisonwood Bible was for different generations and their individuals to question their preexisting beliefs and spark moral conversations and debates amongst each
Mother tends to blame everyone besides the Airedale for his actions. Mother once told the iceman “if you didn’t think he would bite you, he wouldn’t.” She once told the police “they scream and that excites him.” Therefore, she considered it was their own fault for getting bit in the first place.When Muggs bit the Congressman mother blamed it on his horoscope. Therefore, mother grew an attachment to the Airedale and refused to condone that Muggs would bite people without a reason.
