The sheriff struck the rope with an ax and sprang the trap door, and John's body dropped. His pulse did not stop beating for thirty-five minutes. Just over a month earlier, John Brown had been tried and convicted of murdering four whites and a black man, conspiring with slaves to rebel, and with treason against Virginia. The sudden rush of the trial, it's ill-prepared counsel, Brown's suffering physical condition, being tried in a state court for a federal crime, and overall nature of the indictment fueled the fire of those who argued the fairness of the trial. To this day, Americans are divided on on the question: Was John Brown a martyr to be admired or a
Even though the narrtor do not believe in God but also begins to pray”God-God-please.” The soldiers just crawl over in the trenches and finding the safe places even there is no place to avoid the bombarment. They keep thinking that they don’t want to die in the trenches. We can seen that there is no heroism exist in the trenches. It not only no heroism exist in the threnches, but also survival is an important part of the horrible of the war which can prove that heroism and glory are never possible in war. Evidence of this is in the beginning of chapter 6, including what the soldiering means’ saving your own skin and getting a bellyful as often as possible.. that and nothing else.’ And the narrator describes the camaraderie – esprit de corps-good fellowship are no exist in the line.

Artie feels that he will never live up to his parent’s expectations of Richieu, because he was never in the War. An example of this is shown on the last page of the graphic novel, where Vladek turns over to go to sleep and calls Artie, Richieu. “I’m tired from talking, Richieu, and it’s enough stories for now…” The way Spiegleman has represented this in the text suggests to the reader that Vladek never fully loved Artie, as much as he loved his first son Richieu. This has obviously had major impacts on Arties life, and it has all primarily been caused by the Holocaust, because Vladek and Anja never fully healed after the Holocaust. Although ‘The Complete Maus’ is based around the interviews that Spiegleman has conducted with his
He would come back because he had no were else to go. He feels like Rena’s place is not”a home” but rather a place to stay for now. Lee is a very stubborn teen age. He “cut the connection” of the phone with his dad. This symbolizes the fact that lee is cutting the connection with his dad, this is stopping Lee from important part of his identity.
Hurst uses foreshadowing in this story as well. “The doctor said that he mustn’t get too excited, too hot, too cold, or too tired and that he must always be treated gently. A long list of don’ts went with him, all of which I ignored once we got out of the house” (Hurst 345) Brother says himself that he ignores the information that Doodle is very fragile, and later Doodle dies because of his insolence and childish frustration. Another element
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).
“Good by mr wigin tell them im strong tell them im a man”(234). Jefferson was at the wrong place at the wrong time when two other black men tried to rob a white man’s liquor store. After the death of these men, instead of calling 911 he steals some money out the register and a bottle of wine off shelf. After Jefferson has been sentenced to death by execution, his godmother, Miss Emma, requests that Grant Wiggins teaches him to be a man before he dies instead of allowing him to die as a hog-which is what Jefferson’s defense attorney refers to him as. Although Grant initially doesn’t want to help Jefferson, he gradually changes throughout this book and accomplishes his goal of transforming him into a man.
The problem about capital punishment is that it is decided to soon and the death date is too soon that if someone is guilty but really isn’t, and is proven innocent but it will be too late. And there are some people who accidently killed someone and there only punishment is prison time like Lennie, he accidently killed Curley’s wife because he shook her and her neck broke. “Her body flopped like a fish. And then she was still, for Lennie had broken her neck.” (Steinbeck 91) Lennie was only shaking her so that she would be quiet but it ended up wrong. Curley wanted to kill Lennie because he disgrace Curley and killed Curley’s wife and that is an act of capital punishment, which is wrong because Lennie didn’t mean to kill her.
He called together meetings in places that were far away from their own public records only to pretty much bore and tire them into obeying whatever he wanted. Then he repeatedly broke up the Representative Houses for opposing his views on invading into the rights of the people. The Representative House didn’t like how the king wanted to attack people’s personal rights so the king would just get rid of them. Then, after terminating them, he refused for a long time to allow others to be elected into those positions. His actions just showed how much he didn’t care and how he got in the way of the development of the state as a whole.
