In more simple terms, if you only go away from the book with only the plot then you are stupid. Right off the bat though he shows that if you are ignorant then you will get shot, aka your stupidity will result in violence. In addition Pap’s diatribe rambles on about how the government is to blame for his crappy life and that the government treats him like an animal (31-32). It’s ironic because he is saying the government treats him like an animal yet he treats Huck the same. Twain argues that the law should intervene to protect those who are oppressed.
Ultimately justice is served upon both and they end up dead. Lear and Gloucester both have different views on justice. In the eyes of Gloucester, justice is something that does not exist in the world. When Gloucester says “As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods, They kill us for their sport.” he tries to tell us that the ‘gods’ (not just one god, but many) are not only indifferent to human suffering but are excessively cruel, which causes human misery easily. To Lear, justice is something that the ‘gods’ give for immoral actions.
“Roger with a sense of delirious abandonment leaned on the lever.” “Delirious” can only refer to his lack of propriety which leads to the death of another human. He has abandoned civilised thought and become an evil beast willing to disregard human life just because he has the power to. Without the restraints of civilised society we may lose touch and let our inner evil take control of our action. This may lead to us committing horrendous crimes. We need civilisation and its restraining forces to protect us from this horrific
Therefore it is clear that abuse of power causes the destruction of spirituality. Next, symbolism is used in the novel to represent destruction of spirituality due to corruption. Here Roger kills the sow which they hunted in a very unusual/unpleasant way, that it clearly represents fallen spirituality. “Roger found a lodgment for his points and began to push till he was leaning with his whole weight. […] ‘Right up her ass!’ ‘Did you hear?’ ‘Did you hear what he said?’ ‘Right up her ass!’” (Golding 149).
I felt angry about how Kress' irresponsibilities that caused his pets died in a famine because owners have the duties to feed their pets well. Since the beginning of the story told me about Kress was such irrepressible of making his pets suffered from starving, I think he would feel no guilty when he stopped feeding his sandkings to entertain his guests as he showed off to them in the parties. I think Kress was admirable as a human because everyone should not strew up animals' living areas as forcing fish to live on the ground. In the story of "Sandkings", Kress refused to listen to the sandkings' seller - Wo's warning about letting sandkings had wars by their own conflicts, and he didn't treat his pets nice. With what he treated the sandkings, they started behaving displeasures by twisted his sculptures on the castles.
In this instance, fate is looked upon as being cruel towards mankind. It seems as though fate took the liberty to destroy life where ever it saw fit. “Fate swept him away because of his proud need to provoke a feud with the Frisians.”(85) Fate also causes death to keep people out of misery. For example, “Fate swept [them] far way sent [his] whole brave high-born clan to their final doom.” Fate made it so that neither Beowulf nor his army would be able to fight in battle ever again. Many were saddened by this event, but they understood that fate is the reason why things happened in this
He wanted so bad to be seen as different, as unlike his Afrika embracing mother as he could. However the only way he could truly separate himself was to cut off his ties to his culture and kill the last link to his ancestry, his mother. However instead of freeing him, it left a void that made him feel so empty that death was the most palatable
In The Simple Gift Billy tries to forms a self defence towards Caitlin when he first sees her by rejecting her. “My first thought was to hate her because of her shiny watch and her perfect skin”P38.Billy is aware of Caitlin because she seems to be so different from him and he felt he would be judged by her. “and I knew she’d call the manager” P38 In Strange Chameleon the protagonist has a very low self esteem because he does not fit in. He feels that he doesn’t deserve his lover because of this. “Swimming in a dirty river with dirty me you were very beautiful.” Nakayama uses repetition to make the audience focus on thought that he sees him self as “dirty” and how he doesn’t deserve her.
He thought of Grendel as the demon that broke the tranquility of his nation. Hrothgar was angered by Grnedel’s repulsiveness and carelessness. He knew that Grendel was the one that made his life terrible for twelve years. Unlike Beowulf, Hrothgar thought that there was no hope defeating Grendel. Grendel’s mother had a complete different view of her son.
Creon refuses to give Polyneices a proper burial because he believes that he is a traitor, sentenced Antigone to death, and “[has] trampled on God’s right”(Ant. 1187). However, this has upset Zeus; Creon has “kept from the god’s below the child that is theirs”(Ant. 1194). There is no way to escape the curse; even the dogs have become infected.
