Odysseus didn 't even ask his crew whether they should do it or not because Odysseus made it seem like their opinion wasn’t important and didn 't matter. In the story, it says “Why not take these cheeses... Yet I refused, I wished to see the cave man, what he had to offer” (pg 818 L198-199). Odysseus deserved to return home from his journey after 20 years because it was mostly his fault. If Odysseus had told his crew about everything like why not to eat the cattle or to not open the bag of the unfavorable winds, his journey wouldn 't have taken 20 years.
In this soliloquy, Hamlet’s tone changes from being frustrated and irritated to sure, powerful, and bloodthirsty. Hamlet begins speaking in a frustrated manner, beating himself up that although there is so much around him that should motivate him to take revenge against his uncle, he has not. Shakespeare’s diction, such as “dull” (4.4.35) and “beast” (4.4.37) show Hamlet’s disgust with only living like an animal, just sleeping and eating. Hamlet is frustrated since he has been lazy, which was not God’s intention. He cannot even fight for a worthy cause dear to his heart, but Fortinbras’ men die for a meaningless reason.
The beautiful, magnificent drake the lord had captured became dull and “ he refused to to release the drake, ordering that the cage be put out of sight so he would be no longer be annoyed by the birds sad appearance”.

A man called rogyapa, or "breaker of bodies “will sets aside his blade that he used to decapitate the body and grabs a hammer to destroy the remaining bones for the vultures to eat. This is known as a sky burial or heavenly burial. To foreign eyes, this funeral ceremony may seem mean and rough or scary and depressing. Yet within the religious and geographic contexts of Tibetan culture, it is the perfect fate for the body humans leave behind in
There were times where he didn’t even care about his wife. It felt like he shut his feelings for everybody and kept his mind on being king. Not to mention, he did kill Banquo and didn’t feel sad or any guilt towards his death. “Thanks for that. The adult snake lies in the ditch.
Tim’s expectations were not the case; instead Sam dies by being accused incorrectly of stealing his own cattle to teach other troops a lesson about how serious war is. The unecessary death of Sam inspires Tim to go neutral because Sam was not rewarded for valor and had no glory to his name. Tim doesn’t like that or want that so he chooses neither side of the
After failed with the lion, he himself admitted “I bolted like a rabbit” (pg 3, par 11). Robert did not know how to response because a real man never admit that. For me, it is fine, he was not humiliate himself. It is self-acceptance, you admit what you lack and of course you improve it. For Macomber, impressing other people, especially his wife, is materred a lot.
Napoleon has no interests towards the Animal Farm but only his power over it. Unlike Snowball who fought against Jones bravely, Napoleon did nothing to protect the Animal Farm. Napoleon is “not much of a talker” (35) and only contributes a little during the Meeting. Napoleon is not interested in Rebellion or fighting as long as he has power over the Animal Farm but only thinks about his benefits. After the first Rebellion, Napoleon acts as if he cares about others, saying “the harvest is more important” (44) and they should “never mind the milk” (44) when in real, he tries to divert their attentions from milk in order to steal it for himself.
It means hero frequently refuse the responsibility that to renew the community or the ten thousand worlds. Campbell mentions “even the Buddha, after his triumph, doubted whether the message of realization could be communicated, and saints are reported to have passed away while in the supernal ecstasy” (p.127). This “Refusal of the Return” also appears in movie “Avatar”. Marine Jake Sully, the protagonist of “Avatar”, takes his brother’s place in a mission on the distant world of Pandora. There he learns humans’ intentions of driving off the native humanoid “Na’vi” in order to mine for the precious material scattered throughout their rich woodland.
He didn’t even bother to save Polonius when he stabbed him; he just let him die. When King Claudius find out, he didn’t even want to punish Hamlet for killing Polonius because he loves Hamlet’s mother and Hamlet is loved b y the people, punishing him will rise a rebellion against him. Despite the crime that was created by Hamlet, a prince with high social class, he didn’t received any punishment, it was covered up. Polonius didn’t receive any justice for his death. Hamlet was able to hide his crime because he has the power and the title.
“The Federalists saw the economic future in manufacturing, but not political role of “common man.” Little faith in democracy.” “Republicans saw political future of “common man” participating in republic, Faith in the new democracy, but failed to see that farming was not economic future.” (Class notes) Each group had ideas that needed support from one another.
The North relied upon industrial growth and believed in free labor for the expansion in the West. Whereas, the South’s survival was based upon agriculture, more prominently cotton. Thus, the risk of slavery being abolished by the Federal Government would be detrimental to their way of
President Theodore Roosevelt desired to have the government regulate rather than own the railroads. The Hepburn Act of 1906 gave the federal government the power to set maximum railroad rates.

The Populist Party grew out the agrarian revolt that rose because of the collapse of agriculture prices following the Panic of 1873. The Farmers Alliance was ultimately unable to achieve its wider economic goals of collective economic action against brokers, railroads, merchants, and many other movements that agitated for changes in national policy. The preamble was written by Minnesota lawyer, farmer, politician, and novelist Ignatius Donnelly. Delegates embraced the platform with great enthusiasms, and many of the specific proposals urged by the Omaha Platform.
This included the issuing of fiat greenbacks, not backed by gold, but were required to be accepted for the payment of federal debt. It was generally believed that the U.S. Government would ultimately redeem the "greenbacks" with gold. In 1869, a group of speculators, headed by James Fisk and Jay Gould, sought to profit from this by cornering the gold market. Gould and Fisk first recruited Grant 's brother-in-law, a financier named Abel Corbin. They used Corbin to get close to Grant in social situations, where they would argue against government sale of gold, and Corbin would support their arguments.
