He would come home at night extremely drunk and one night, Pluto was trying to ignore him because he didn’t like the way he was. The narrator got really mad and took out a knife and cut out one of Pluto’s eyes. One morning the narrator woke up and took the black cat by the neck and hung him on a tree limb. The next day the house burnt down which I think is karma telling the narrator to watch out because something might happen soon. The narrator was out one night drinking with his buddies when he saw another black cat, but this black cat had a strip of white going across
Francesco Gallardo Mr. McFarlin H English 10, Period 5 2010 September 26 The Cats of Ulthar: Morality on Spotlight Fear is a very powerful thing, sometimes so powerful that it prevents some from doing what is right. Sometimes it takes karma to act against wrongdoings. In H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Cats of Ulthar”, a short story about a young Egyptian boy who curses and kills the his cat’s murderers for revenge, the idea of consequence is discussed in thorough detail, as well as the idea that fear can hinder positive action against crime and misdeeds. Lovecraft argues that fear should not stop someone from doing the right thing, and that one can only get away with evil for so long without consequence, and uses dark mood, irony, and foreshadowing to show this.
After George says to Lennie,: „Trouble with mice is you always kill 'em. ” Lennie answers to that: „but i don’t wanna kill’em, George.“ This show that lennie again, doesn’t have control about what he’s doing with all his force. He doesn’t want to kill the mice, but he isn’t aware of his force, so he always breaks their necks. Another way how steinbeck relates to nature in his novel is by Georges and Lennies dream. When they speak about their future, they often say things like: “We could live offa the fatta the lan'.” This shows how
It’s the kind of dream that wakes you try and stay awake after, because you know it’s waiting there for you behind your closed eyelids. (McNamee 11) This quote illustrates that Duncan is uncomfortable with what happened. The nightmares of the drowning girl keeps coming back to him because he did not save her. Just like Duncan, in The Penance, Octavia feels uncomfortable because of what he has done. He killed the three children’s cat because Octavia thought the cat was eating the chickens.
This chapter is counted into a climax and a turning point of the novel. Due to the effect of alcohol and ignorance from Sally and the bar singer, Holden made himself of a fool with collapsing sense of security. When he was in the park, he was overwhelmed by depress and miserableness. Tape, ducks and pond triggered his depressing memory of his brother Allie’s death and the fear of his own funeral, thereby revealing the root of his previous manic behavior: Holden was troubled by unexplained disappearance and he was in deep anxiousness that all the things that were related to his pure, innocent childhood would suddenly vanish. This echoes one of the themes of this novel—adolescent confusion on the way to the adult world and the pain of growing up.
Check your notes; below is a succinct synopsis of that introductory discussion: “Waiting for Conventions” In Waiting for Godot, Beckett implements broken conventions of traditional theatre in order to successfully satirize the detrimental nature of the human condition symbolized throughout this absurdist play (which seems to have no plot). A certain level of tension is created by this plays lack of plot which leaves the audience expecting something to happen that never comes. This lack of plot to some overshadows the reasoning behind why Beckett does this. Although these broken conventions can act as a looking glass into the true meaning of the play, they require the audience to do a certain amount of searching to crack the nut which is Waiting for Godot. Waiting for Godot, unlike many plays follows no specific plot, a concept in which most conventional plays ought to have in order to rope in an audience member to the contents and morals of the play.
The whole thing takes place just for Delia’s submissiveness. If Delia has been audacious from earlier the whole situation would not take place.

Maria and tony fall into forbidden love, Bernardo (Marias brother) forbids Maria from seeing tony. Anita as well tells Maria to “find someone of there own kind”, this shows the harsh racism. The candy store is the Jets hangout spot, this candy store is also where Riff (jets leader) and Bernardo (sharks leader) make a deal on the final rumble. This brought intense drama to the story line. Love is a common shift in mood caused by Maria and tony.
Pi presented the audiences with two different stories and, although one does seem more reasonable, he never really clarifies which story is true. The audience can blindly accept the ‘story without animals’ or can even accept the ‘better story’, as it is still a possibility, as it has not been denied. It is even possible that Pi did not actually share the truth, and the actual tale was never told. Amid all these choice the audience can get lost in confusion. One can even get confused as one tries to analyze and compare the two stories.
Comparing Edgar Allan Poe’s The Black Cat and The Tell Tale Heart Two examples in which the black cat and tell tale heart compare are the eye and police involvement. Black cat – the eye; the narrator came back home quite drunk, he forcefully grasps the cat and got bitten on the hand and out of fierce anger he grabs his penknife and cuts out an eye from the cat. “I took from my waist coat – pocket a penknife, opened it, grasped the poor beast by the throat, and deliberately cut one of its eyes from the socket!” (Poe para 7). Tell tale heart – the eye; the narrator was driven by a fear for a pale blue eye of an old man. “I think it was his eye!
