By Greg Toppo, USA TODAY At first blush, Brittany Brechbuhl and Neil Ahrendt seem American success stories: They attend Carmel High School, a gleaming glass-and-brick edifice in suburban Indianapolis, where taxpayer support buys a genetics lab, a swimming pool and a 91% graduation rate. Brittany is 28th in her class, with a nearly perfect GPA; Neil is a National Merit semifinalist and class president. OK, so they don't seem to study very hard, but they're squeaky-clean and college-bound. What could possibly be wrong with this picture? Plenty, says a new documentary making the rounds with teachers.
With over 30,000 copies of her novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, sold in over 40 languages, Harper Lee is within the ranks of history’s greatest and most magnificent authors. Harper Lee’s life before her novel was published greatly affected To Kill a Mockingbird which shows a pure representation of childhood and growing up. Miss Lee’s life before To Kill a Mockingbird was written was completely changed with book’s unheralded success. Lee was born in the (then) small town of Monroeville, Alabama with the population of about 7,000 at that time. The day of her birth was April 28, 1926.
Not to mention his stellar grades in every class with his best subject, being a teacher’s pet. His message simply read, “Quit while you’re ahead, you’ll never win anyway.” Something about this altercation didn’t sit well with me and from that moment on I knew what I would do. I was going to become the schools next Senior Class President. I began by talking to my friends about my new goal. They all promised to vote for me and pass the word along.
Everyone always says “High School is the best years of your life.” And to me that sounds like a pretty big statement to live up to. How is High school supposed to be this amazing time when people don’t want to get involved in anything, because everything is boring, or lame, or none of our friends are going? If you elect me as class president, I volunteer myself as one of these leaders, to guide you to success and an amazing sophomore year. And lastly, as your sophomore class president, I would just like to say, this is high school. We only have four years here - and think about how quickly our first year has already
She was taking a very high risk in taking the potion because Friar Lawrence did not even know if it would work and she herself questions if he wanted to poison her. In the end of Scene 3 she cries: “Romeo, I come! This do I drink to thee.”(Line 59) She was so completely dedicated to Romeo that she risked her life and the possibility of marrying Paris in taking the drink. Juliet decided to do this because she was attempting to secretly run away with Romeo, abandoning her family. This was a brave action on behalf of Juliet because disobeying Sir Capulet, her father, was considered a sin.
It is the ultimate act of love- killing yourself for love. (Quote goes here, could not find one!) This therefore shows that love is to blame because Romeo killed himself out of love for Juliet and Juliet killed herself out of love for Romeo. In conclusion Romeo, Friar Lawrence and love are all equally to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo for his immature behaviour and killing Tybalt which made him banished, Friar Lawrence for helping the two lovers in their plans to be together, and love, because Romeo and Juliet were so deeply in love they could not live without each other so they both killed themselves.
My grave is like to be my wedding bed" (1.5.135). she is saying that she will not marry a man other than Romeo, Without even knowing she foreshadowing her fate. (About her rebellion against her father about getting marrying to Paris.) Juliet tells Romeo "Yet I should kill thee with much cherishing" (2.2.183) Juliet feels she has so much love for Romeo that she feels that she might just love him to death. Juliet is willing to fake her death in order to remain married to only Romeo, even if it results in death to society.
So he plots his revenge on Othello by manipulating Roderigo's love for Desdemona (Othello's wife) and attempts to destroy Othello's life and everything he has worked for. In The Crucible envy is represented by a girl named Abigail Williams, who is envious of Elizabeth Proctor also known as the wife of John Proctor (the love of her life). She envies the love that John has for Elizabeth and attempts to destroy her and their marriage. She accuses Elizabeth Proctor of witchcraft in attempt of getting rid of her. Then tries to win over John, but he is faithful now and then turns her plan against her in attempt to save his wife.
/ For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night” (I.v.50-51) This shows his impulsiveness by not mentioning Rosaline at all and starting to fall in love with a girl he does not even know. Yet does he know she is a Capulet. Romeo’s action of falling in love leads to much grief of others. It leads to the deaths of Romeo, Juliet, Tybalt, Mercutio, Paris, and Lady Montague. The fates and lives of these people, Romeo included, could have been spared if his tragic flaw had not taken over when
Romeo is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet, therefore, they are forbidden to fall in love. Friar Lawrence married them in secrecy. Romeo killed Tybalt, and in result he was banished to Mantua by the Prince. When he was banished, Juliet’s father was making her marry Paris. She ran to Friar Lawrence for help and the friar gave her distilling liquor so that she can fake her death.
