Another reason their relationship is dangerous is that if John Procter were to prosecute against Abigail Williams saying that she is in fact a witch, Abigail Williams could very easily tell the entire town that she and Procter have been having an affair to get revenge on him. It wouldn’t really affect her too much, but on the contrary, it would ruin his reputation in the town and his relationship with his wife. Later in Act I, Abigail is being “interrogated” by Reverend Hale and she claims “I never sold myself! I’m a good girl! I’m a proper girl!” (Miller 40) in this statement, Abigail is defending herself that she never sold herself to the devil.
If two eight-graders came up to you, would you agree to help them elope? In Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, two star-crossed lovers struggle to love due to their feudal families, the Montagues and the Capulets. In order to stay with each other for eternity, Romeo and Juliet commit suicide, which at the same time, ends the enmity between the rival families. However, part of this tragic death was brought upon by Friar Lawrence, their trusted friend and advisor. Through Friar Lawrence, Shakespeare shows us how shortsightedness will avert our true responsibilities.
Juliet shows her devotion to Romeo throughout the entire play. One example was when Juliet is confronted with her parents’ decision for her to marry Paris. She refuses to follow through with their command and says, “I will not marry yet; and, when I do, I swear, it shall be Romeo, whom you know I hate, Rather than Paris.” These lines are ironic because she has already married Romeo and she loves him with an undying burning passion. Furthermore, when she chose to take the very dangerous potion that would make her fall into a very deep sleep, she was taking a huge risk. 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.
When Juliet objected to Lord Capulet’s decision of marrying her to Paris, the nurse advised Juliet to do as her father said (Act III, scene v, lines 213-226). Juliet was already married to Romeo and refused to go against her wedding vows. Without the support from her nurse, Juliet goes to the Friar. He gives her a potion that allows Juliet to fake her death and live happily ever after with Romeo. The Friar and Juliet devise a plan, and the Friar sends a letter that informs Romeo of the plan.
This differs from how Lily acts because Lily relies on others to help make her happy. One of the reasons that June does not want to marry Neil is because she does not want to admit that she might actually need him. She is afraid of letting someone know that she needs them because the last time she fell in love he left her. “Ever since Melvin Edwards backed out of your wedding all those years back, you’ve been afraid of love, refusing to take a chance” (211). August knows that June is afraid to fall in love again because the last man that she fell in love with left her.
Emma Cutroni Romeo and Juliet Essay Rules were made to prevent bad things from happening. But are all rules really necessary? Sometimes people have to break the rules in order to accomplish tasks. In The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Romeo gets news of the Capulet party he crashes it knowing his household isn’t allowed but enters anyway to see Rosaline. Upon arrival he spots Juliet from across the room and asks himself, “Did my heart love till now?” When they first met it was as if the stars aligned and everything was perfect until they realized what household each other were from.
If scientific advancement is left uninhibited, it is likely to lead to the destruction of current human values to the point where science is both treated as a god and a demon. “Fordship, our Ford and A.F.”, through the use of parody of terms such as “Our Lord” and “Lordship”, Huxley highlights a religious view towards that of Henry Ford, elevating him to the position of God. This shows that through relentless following of scientific advancement, humans have come to treat science as a God, it becoming their ruler. However, it is also shown that science is also treated as a demon by some, “Science is dangerous; We have to keep it most carefully chained and muzzled”, through the use of irony, of how although throughout the book humanity’s beliefs revolved around science, it is also shown that science is fake and manipulated. Huxley demonstrates that by leaving progress unchecked, it will eventually be manipulated by the government, to suit their needs.
He supports this with three possible reasons of why this is true: the persistence of discrimination, gender disparities arising in the absence of discrimination, and child rearing (796). He concludes his article by bringing up the subject of taboo, the opinion that letting certain subjects or thoughts entering your head is unacceptable and unforgivable (799). Pinker uses appeals to authority, logic, and emotion in order convince his audience of his correctness. Before Pinker begins the article, it is already established that he has authority by showing that he is an expert in many science fields, many of which are predominately male (795). Doing this allows him to make the misconception that he is a professional on the differences between men and women.
Feminist science fiction, a sub-genre of science fiction poses questions about how society builds gender roles, the role reproduction plays in defining gender and the unequal political powers of men and women using utopias to explore a society in which gender differences do not exist, such as in Ursula Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness and Joanna Russ' The Female Man. Each highlights the socially constructed aspects of gender roles by creating worlds with genderless societies. Conversely, when speaking of the Western genre, women are usually represented either as wholly 'good' and homely or wholly 'bad' or 'loose'. This representation, though is may seem entirely natural at first, is merely an effect ' genre mind-set'. Multiple genres also allow authors to write in order to achieve unique purposes.
Throughout the play, we never really see him assume responsibility for any one of his choices. Juliet also makes a number of poor decisions including marrying Romeo without telling anyone besides the nurse. One major display of free will or a choice Juliet makes, is her decision to drink the potion. After deciding to fake her own death, Juliet wakes up and sees her husband lying dead. The biggest example of free will is Juliet’s decision to take the poison and end her own life.
