John Gardner displays Grendel as a very critical and important character in his novel Grendel. In fact, without Grendel the novel in itself would not exist. Through humanistic and animalistic qualities, John Gardner brings out Grendel to have a significant presence in the novel Grendel. From the start of the novel, Gardner is presented as a lonely and dumb creature. He is described to live in a cave that is dark and somewhat spooky.
“The Caves in Our World” In the story, “The Allegory of the Cave,” there are prisoners chained in a cave who have never seen the outside world, but only distorted views of people and the objects they carry along the wall behind the prisoners. In one sense, the cave could be seen as the darkness that people live in when they do not know Jesus. They live in a dark world, where the fire is Satan, who lies and distorts peoples’ views of things by casting the shadows on the wall. People who do not know Jesus are tempted and lied to by Satan. He makes it near impossible for those people to see the truth spoken by the Bible.
The word respect, was not found in this methods. Moreover, these two methods were similar to each other, in the way that both methods used punishment as the main tool of correction. Apart from, guards were not teach on how to behave with prisoners, this is why no limitation were applied. If a punishment situation was going on, other guards not participating with his workmates were to take pictures and laugh about what is happening. It was like if we came back to slavery times, something not tolerated at all in this society.
Due to the correctional officers not being properly trained on how to breach a prisoner’s cell and properly extract the unruly inmate may be considered a violation of the inmate’s rights. Had the correctional officers been trained properly when it came to subduing the inmate he may have not received the injuries that caused him to be put into a comatose state. With any local, state and federal agency liability is the utmost of importance due to the impact that it has on the agency. When referring to the correctional facility in this scenario the supervisor usually knows who has experience and who does not out of his staff. The supervisor did not plan or intend for the inmate to be knocked out and to later end up in a coma, because he was more or less genuinely interested in the inmates safety at the time he was beating himself up in his cell.
Miranda is anything but showing compassion for her kidnapper, Clegg because of the fact that he is keeping her prisoner in a small, confined area and not letting her go free. Miranda does not show signs of Stockholm syndrome. Another reason why Miranda does not have Stockholm syndrome is because she does not identify or connect with Clegg. “…face-to-face contact…does not determine whether the hostage will come to be sympathetic with the captor…” (Turner) Even though Clegg and Miranda spend a lot of time together does not mean that Miranda relates to him or shows kindness towards him. “He’s not human; he’s an empty space disguised as a human.” (240) Miranda thinks that Clegg is a heartless, cold being and she is disgusted with him.
Plato describes the cave as having prisoners chained up facing the cave wall. These prisoners are in an illusory world (our world- the world of appearance). These prisoners are chained to the floor, these chains could symbolize our senses, saying our senses (the chains) cause us to accept everything that we see and hear around us. There is a fire burning behind them, of which they can see the shadows of on the wall in front of them, they believe the shadow is real and is the reality of the fire. As well as the shadow of the fire, the prisoners can also see shadows of people crossing the footbridge behind them, carrying stone animal statues; again they believe these shadows to be real.
First, he convinces poor men to kill Banquo. “There is none but he whose being I fear.” (3.1.59-60). He also kills Banquo because his kids are supposed to become king. He also starts to change when he acts innocent to everything he has done. “Be innocent of knowledge.”(3.2.51).
To do this they exercise disciplinary power in a concentrated and pure form. Goffman (1957) suggested that prisons act to preserve social isolation and to classify prisoners as abnormal through social segregation. Even though Foucoult and Goffman do emphasise different intentions of imprisonment they do agree that prisoners are socially isolated with no independence and are given a forced structure of living. Jewkes & Johnston (2006) stated that imprisonment is painful due to the frustrations and deprivations that prisoners have to experience and suggests that it is imperative for us to recognise them. Goffman (2009) stated that an inmate’s moral career is a personal process that an inmate goes through in prison, relating to how they think about themselves and significant others.
This sounds eerily similar to the kind of treatment prisoners seem to receive in incarceration. There’s no rehabilitation period, no attempt to aid in the recovery of their mental health. Something is wrong with these people on a cognitive level. They don’t think as normal people do. The state should be funding associations who will fix these people, so on their release day they won’t just continue on the road which led them to prison in the first
