This infuriated Okonkwo to be looked down upon and seen as a weakling. He then declares that they must kill the white men immediately. “[...] I shall fight alone if I choose” (Achebe 201). He then beheads a messenger of the white men, though no one tried to help him in his fight. In the realization that his beloved land Umuofia wouldn’t help him in his war, Okonkwo took his life in the most shameful way you could.
In the poems Beowulf and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the protagonists Beowulf and Sir Gawain demonstrate the characteristics of a hero. Courage is the one of the important characteristics that the great hero must be. When compared and contrasted, the two characters portray the quality in their own way. In the poem Beowulf, the main character, Beowulf is an incredible person who is willing to defeat anyone to keep his people safe. When Beowulf hears about the evil monster, Grendel, terrorizing King Hrothgar's people, he agrees to fight Grendel without hesitation.
5). Also, if someone surrendered to the Mongols, they were still killed without any remorse. While battling, Mongols often surrounded their opponents before slaughtering all of them, not giving them any chance to escape (Doc. 3). In the military, if one member of a group fails or does not follow the Mongols rules for their soldiers, the whole group is executed (Doc.
“And for the first time in his life that famous prince fought with fate against him, with glory denied him. He knew it, but he raised his sword and struck at the dragon’s scaly hide” (l. 885 - 888). Even with fate against him, Beowulf knows that he needs to kill the dragon in order to save his people. When his men see the dragon, however, all but one run away in fear. Beowulf and Wiglaf need to fight the dragon by themselves, although they know they will most likely die.
Source B supports this, saying that if any unit ‘retreats without orders’ they would be shot’. This created fantastic discipline among the soldiers, and meant that the Red Army was always moving forward, and any cowards were eliminated. Lenin also ruthlessly commanded from the top, ensuring that supplies got to all of the soldiers, by executing peasants in villages that did not supply sufficient grain. Source D suggests the leadership was fantastic, as it says the Whites were ‘unable to match’ the ‘skill and energy’ of Lenin and Trotsky. The whites had no true leader after the death of Kornilov, and the three generals in charge often disagreed.
But at those times they would just box or fight with each other but it was just a competition. But now it has turned into a war in south central and many young adults are dying every day. But this film also showed how in south central the white people outside caused the war in south central for the reasons that they made them find a place where they had to live and they couldn’t live around white people. And to me that’s what caused all of it. But there are also some people in the film trying to prevent the crime How the article and the film all came
For example, he only fought the monster, Grendel, because the monster was killing all the men. MLK fought because he refused to let segregation go on any longer. Segregation was when the black and whites were separated in their daily lives. The differences between Beowulf and MLK were that Beowulf fought physically and MLK fought verbally. Beowulf ripped a monster’s arm of with his bare hands.
He refers to little white boys dancing around a hanging body as “lynchers that were to be” in “The Lynching,” and to the white race in general as “the monsters we defy” and “the common foe” in “If We Must Die.” From these two descriptions alone the readers can ascertain a general assumption that McKay calls for active resistance to the majority white race. His form of writing is aggressive to the point of where the readers feel that he would side with W.E.B. DuBois rather than Booker T. Washington. McKay also says in “If We Must Die,” “Like men we’ll face the murderous, cowardly pack,/Pressed to the wall, dying, but fighting back!” This quotation implies that he is calling for Blacks to actively rise up against the Whites and fight for equality, which is the exact goal W.E.B. DuBois strived for.
From quite early on in the novel, Orwell portrays Snowball as one who is a good leader being both intelligent and a confident speaker ‘Snowball was a more vivacious pig than Napoleon, quicker in speech and more inventive’. Generally, he shares similar qualities to the other animals in that he is intent on Old Major’s ideas of Animalism, making the rise of animals prosperous and wanting a firm segregation from humans, and in a way he is naïve to the power and manipulation within his opposition Napoleon- by gaining the animal’s support he almost becomes oblivious to other members who could have conflicting views. Orwell is presenting to the reader the element of corruption in 20th century Russia, showing us that you can’t trust anyone- not even your comrade. By displaying this through such a powerful and influential character like Snowball, it is easier for us to understand how the other animals could have then been so controlled by Napoleon. Snowball doesn’t see him as a threat until it is too late due to clever organisation and planning.
Jack becomes successful in gaining power because he rules by fear and with intimidation and brute force. Even the army of hunters fear Jack when he “beat Wilfred”(176) for no apparent reason. Although Jack’s irrational decisions appease the little ones, his actions hurt the boys’ chance of rescue. As time passes on the island, Jack’s own bloodlust prioritizes itself before the need to be rescued. In order to protect the little ones from the beast, he makes an offering “for the beast.”(151), creating the basis of a religion.
