Families are full of love and hope but to annihilate that all is a complete act of putrid evil and hate. War gives illusional rights to these inhumane beings that these acts are a part of life which they aren’t. Natural death should be the cause of all these lives, not innocent murder. War is the reason these families blood has been spilt. After all these past events, the 1800’s wars, The Boer War, WWI, WWII and The Cold War, you’d think we’d all have learnt our lesson that war was destroying people, along with the world.
• Context beforehand: A fight between the 2 family members took place, resulting in the death of Tybalt and Mercutio. The Benvolio tells Romeo to leave before anyone catches him. • The mood: serious, horrific and dread as he recounts the events of the fight and death. • The mood is important because it shows the major effects of the family feud (i.e. Tybalt and Mercutio’s death) • Elegy is about a “bloody fray”, but leaves out parts of Mercutio’s insults to Tybalt.

The two main forms of violence are preformed by Grendel, the main antagonist of the poem and by Beowulf - the hero of the story. Due to the fact that Anglo-Saxon culture is immersed in violence and vengeance, these acts are accepted without question. The motivation for each character’s violence varies immensely. Grendel was an “unhappy creature” and this was “after God condemned [him] as kin of Cain”, this led Grendel to become a vengeful and wicked creature. When he attacked Herot his attack was, “grim, and fierce, was quickly ready, savage and cruel, and [he] seized from their rest thirty thanes.” Grendel kills to fulfill a blood lust and a deep hatred because he is alone in his
Sarah Strasz Mrs. DeLong Honors British Literature and Composition 25 October 2011 Connecting Fear to An Epic One of the strongest emotions within the epic Beowulf is that of fear, signifying that even the most unlikely of characters, from heroes to villains, still infrequently feel dread and terror. In Part One of Beowulf, the people of Herot are being savagely attacked by the voracious fiend, Grendel. A belligerent murderer that only lurks in the hours of darkness comes to kill for reasons only known by God and his powerful wrath Reword. May make readers confused. (Raffel 42).
To begin with, the battle between the Montague’s and Capulet’s caused the death of Mercutio and Tybalt. To illustrate the point, Tybalt killed Mercutio because he was close to the Montagues, which he despised, and Mercutio had challenged him to a duel. Before Mercutio died in 3.1 he exclaimed, “A plague a both your houses!” meaning that the fight between the two families are like a plague where there’s no benefit (3.1. line 106). This implies that Mercutio felt that he was caught up between the everlasting feuds between the two families and he wanted no other innocent people to die from this conflict between the two families, therefore shouted out this fraise. In addition, in 3.1 Romeo murdered Tybalt to avenge the death of Mercutio by saying “Either thou or I, or both, must go with him.” (3.1. line 129).
I think Henry VIII does deserve his image as ‘Horrible Henry’ as he did many bad things throughout his life. Examples of these are, for a first, an obvious one; he killed two of his wives, for very vague and simple reasons. One and main reason that Henry deserves to be remembered badly, is because he treated his wives unreasonably. Anne gave him a daughter (not a son which was what he wanted desperately, for an heir to take on the throne after Henry) and she apparently
In some parts of the world people from different backgrounds are in genocide. For the way they look, act, and what they wear. Punished or tortured for the name they brand or they cross they carry, or even the book they carry. We have laws to abide by, but fanatic individuals brainwashed by evil create acts of violence that prove that the war is still here and more than real. Just because we are not in the same continent or country as them, they are still are brothers and the hate mongering and hatred acts towards them are a feeling of unhappiness scene al around the world.
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
Dunya Mikhail portrays the realities of war through the use of personification and lack of punctuation. As you can see the structure of the poem almost resembles that of a list, creating the effect of life during the war, long and routine. Through the use of action verbs such as swings, summons and digs for example she is using this language to show what the war does by giving it human qualities (read examples). The start of the poem (read first 3 lines) has quite a sarcastic tone and I think this shows how she feels towards the military glorifying war, doing whatever they can to convince you to join. As the poem progresses, Mikhail begins to mock the routine of war, (wakes the sirens…dispatches ambos…swings corpses through the air) therefore showing us the harmful effects of war.
