Norma says this towards the end of the story, when Norma is essentially telling Leroy she wants to be alone. The 14 years alone she’d been alone had helped her deal with the death of her child Randy, and Leroy’s permanent return home has brought back those feelings of their lost child. We can also infer from this that, Norma may have purposely taken bodybuilding, and composition classes In order to avoid Leroy’s constant presence at home. In the story we can clearly see the
War communism creates vast resentment and mass famine but sole aim is winning the war, Trotsky’s influence in the military Opening/Closing Sentences: War communism was a harsh policy adopted to ensure the Bolsheviks could grind out a result in the civil war. War communism led on to many other factors that caused opposition, hence I believe it to be the single most important factor. Paragraph 4: Bourgeoisie and Religion Content/Examples: Natural enemies of the
In The Scarlet Letter it is a totalitarian puritan society, where committing a sin is also breaking the law and is punishable as a crime, that determines the cultural values. This is evident as when Hester Prynne, the main character, is found guilty of adultery she is ostracised and made to wear a scarlet letter ‘A’ embroidered on her chest for public humiliation. The physical setting produced by Hawthorne shows us the Puritan beliefs as in the first chapter we are shown the main buildings, namely, the prison and the town scaffold, representing law and religion form the heart of the town. Hawthorne does this so that we understand the Puritans have control over the town and that all
Clara Tilling is fifteen and a half year old. She is an ordinary teenager, but got some disturbances, especially in form of her family. She most likely got difficulties getting through her mom and dads divorce, and the fact that she got to convince herself that the stepfather Stan now is a part of her life. All this is might equal to the incidence at the school where she walked around naked, that we as normal people would associate with some kind of sickness or problem.

It can also be argued that Puritan society is what molded him to be that way. The townspeople were extremely harsh on Hester Prynne for committing an act of adultery. While judgment for such an action is to be expected, the extent of the cruelty was unwarranted. “At the very least, they should have put the brand of a hot iron on Hester Prynne’s forehead. Madame Hester would have winced at that, I warrant me.
The one main character in this story is Naomi, although the some of the other characters are Will, James and Mr. Porter (Naomi’s dad). Two words that most describe Naomi are caring and forgetful. An exact example from the book would be when Ace, Naomi’s boyfriend from before the accident, asked her if she remembered an event that happened a year ago. Because of her condition, of course Naomi did not remember. Will is a kind and worrisome person.
The word “knive” indeed implies a violent action, which could mean that Owen is describing weather as though it were an enemy. He then uses personification later on in the poem; "Dawn massing in the east her melancholy army". In this quote, he personifies dawn or nature as a woman which points out that Mother Nature herself has betrayed them. This clashes with the whole idea of women being compassionate and loving, and in fact, the image of the woman is being subverted. This is used by Owen to describe the unpredictability of war that the soldiers had to face.
Although religion gives a person meaning to life, it guides people into the right direction, comforts people in times of sadness, and connects people together. Many believe that religion is the cause of all wars, because of the large number of general encounter between opposing different worshipping of leaders. But the cause of a war can be very difficult to figure out. Others would argue that religion is the primary cause of war, because of the many wars that have been caused by it. Throughout history, religion has been named the number one source of creating the torment anguish of human wars.
