On the whole, by making efficient use of the cyclic archetype of prejudice, the two authors show how people can act so harshly towards one another due to unequal rights. Though the negativity of false assumptions and preconceived notions is highly emphasized, Lee and Hicks also establish that there logical people who look at situations with a clear head. In conclusion, the recurring archetype of prejudice in both works shows the audience that is important to treat everyone fairly because only bad things come out of
Not only does it point out the natural inclination of people to feel pain as a ripple effect rather than all at once, it foreshadows the suffering that Hester and Arthur Dimmesdale will undergo throughout the course of the novel. It also explains how Hester is able to handle such terrible things as public shaming without crumbling into herself. His use of words such as torture, rankles and extremity increase the sense of drama in this passage. Chapter 4 “The Interview” Page 30 “We have wronged each other,” answered he. “Mine was the first wrong, when I betrayed thy budding youth into a false and unnatural relation with my decay.
Culture Shock The stresses of moving to another country, acclimating to different social customs, language barriers combined with the lack of familiar comforts can often be a shock to the system. In the case of the Canadian Advisor he employs a Self-Serving Bias as a defence mechanism for culture shock. In order to cope with “Culture Shock”, he to some degree, imagines that he has integrated well with the host society and its’ culture despite putting in minimal effort to do so. Keith Campbell (2008), Attributions, deception, and event related potentials: An investigation of the self-serving bias. Psychophysiology notes that “Self-serving attributions occur when negative personal outcomes are ascribed to external circumstances and when positive outcomes are ascribed to internal factors.
It can be suggested that Shakespeare presents this character in a negative light throughout the play in order to have the audience view his choices and actions negatively too. However, in Great Expectations, it may be argued that Dickens aims to make his audience more sympathetic to Pip and his situation, and therefore allows us to see Pip’s choices in a more positive light. 2. Main – prove my argument * Macbeth – presented negatively – uncontrollable, easily led, power driven, fear vs. bravery, treason What choice did he make? What influences did he have?
The final reason is ‘Maintenance Difficulties’, this is when the relationship could be strained by practical difficulties, such as distance. Rollie and Duck put forward a model of relationship breakdown, which consisted of 6 stages. The first stage was ‘Breakdown’ this is dissatisfaction with your partner; if this is sufficiently great then it progresses onto the next stage. ‘Intrapsychic’, this is characterized by social withdrawal and the disatisfied partner focuses on their partners faults which can cause them to consider possible alternatives. This leads onto the ‘Dyadic Process’, this is where the partners talk about their problems and the causes of their dissatisfaction, however reconliation can take place at this point.
Holden explores the concept of relationships through the similar attitudes displayed towards popular society and his repulsion of their values. Holden is seen throughout the novel to have difficulty accepting people due to their pretentious nature and expresses this through the constant use of the word “phony.” “…very phony, Ivy League voices, one of those very tried, snobby voices” this quote by Holden displays his criticism of middle to upper class America. Holden’s relationship with his own parents is one that he deems
The Widow’s Broom – Riley Finn How has your picture book helped you to understand an aspect of society? Society as we know it is full of moral codes and dignities that, whether we are aware of them or not, influence our every action and decision. Although unwritten, these rules dictate what we view as acceptable in our everyday lives. However, these guidelines can often be misconstrued or, more commonly, exaggerated to the point of ill founded prejudices. The Widow’s Broom, by Chris Van Allsburg looks at the way in which society can be misled by these prejudices, and this can lead to disharmony between individuals or groups.
Chelsea Mackenzie Inspector Calls - Critical Evaluation "Responsibility is the ability or authority to act on one's own,withourt supervision." Through suspicion,drama and love, J.B Priestley explores the theme of responsibility. Priestley shows his views about resposibility successfully through the main characters in the play.

Though, it was taken too far when words began to hurt. In the piece, Countee Cullen’s, "Incident", the author expresses his opinions on racism and how a word or a phrase can stick with a human being and change their experience in life. Cullen demonstrates this situation by adding a word in his poem that changes the direction of the piece. By showing us this change, Cullen expresses his
The penultimate sentence in this paragraph speaks of “Influencers disconnected from the seasoned wisdom of friends and mentors” (emphasis added). This wordplay relating the “connectedness” of social media to the reality of disconnection from people not only tickles the funny bone of literarily minded readers, but also adds to his logical case against the overuse of social media. Hansen also appeals to the credibility of others by referencing books and authors. This helps us see his intended audience more clearly as he does this. First he references a quote about the middle class from Alexis de Tocqueville “in his famous book Democracy in America” (emphasis added).
