He asks Canterbury if England's claim to France is strong enough to go to war over with the strict injunction to tell the truth, because "never two such kingdoms did contend without much fall of blood, whose guiltless drops are every one a woe"(I.ii.24-26). King Henry tells Canterbury that war must only be waged for just and valid reasons since it "makes such waste in brief mortality"(I.ii.28). The King gives the impression of a man who values human life greatly and appreciates the sacrifices that are inescapable in any war. He and his advisors are still talking when a messenger from the Dauphin arrives, holding a gift from France. King Henry is gracious
George Orwell has created Napoleon for entertainment purposes but also teach the reader about the Russian Revolution. Napoleon is a powerful reader. He is very manipulative and is a very clever and sneaky. The name Napoleon means a powerful egocentric leader who said, “l'état c'est moi” (the state is mine), tyrant, French military, war, short. “Napoleon was a large, rather fierce-looking Berkshire boar…not much of a talker, but with a reputation for getting his own way.” The word “fierce” describe Napoleon as furious and violent.
Harsh feelings could bring up the incentive to kill the famous president. Stanton could imagine it as the rebels ace in the hole, a way to turn the tables. Lincoln’s presence in the theater was advertised, so it had been filled with people. This worried both Stanton and Mrs. Lincoln, but Lincoln ignored their worries, claiming them to be too cautious. Lincoln had
Who'll earn the Empire's thanks-Will you, my laddie? Who'll swell the victor's ranks-Will you, my laddie? When that procession comes,Banners and rolling drums- Who'll stand and bite his thumbs- Will you, my laddie? In modern times Pope's usage of rhetorical questions is admonished as pressuring young men to join the army and go off to war. Whilst this is undoubtedly the case the vast amounts of hatred and blame placed on Pope, in particular by Wilfred Owen and other prominent third stage poets, is misplaced.
Brooke's 'The Soldier' and Sassoon's 'Does it Matter' are vastly different from each other. First of all, they are written in different contexts and the messages are completely opposite. The former was written in 1914 when all young men in England were encouraged to join the army and it was considered an honour to die fighting for the country. Therefore, Brooke's poem shows an obvious patriotic attitude. ‘The Soldier’ was written when the war only started and people tended to believe that that 'the war's going to be over just this Christmas', so the tone of the poem is very optimistic.
Gullible (Dramatic Irony): GLOUCESTER No doubt, no doubt; and so shall Clarence too; For they that were your enemies are his, And have prevail'd as much on him as you. HASTINGS More pity that the eagle should be mew'd, While kites and buzzards prey at liberty. GLOUCESTER I do beweep to many simple gulls Namely, to Hastings, Derby, Buckingham; And say it is the queen and her allies That stir the king against the duke my brother. Now, they believe it; and withal
Private Peaceful shows that while young men go to war to ‘prove themselves’, all they really prove is the futility of war. Do you agree? The novel ‘Private Peaceful’ by Michael Morpurgo shows that, even though young men go to war to prove themselves, all they prove is that war is completely futile. The novel shows this when it talks about the thousands of dead soldiers, the pointless attacks, and the post-script section of the novel. This incredible war story shows us that, even though they display great bravery and valour in battle, the only thing young men who fight in wars accomplish is an early death.
Common sense by Thomas Paine Paine says that there has never been a better time to fight for independence, as the colonies have never been more united and are full of soldiers who have fought in the recent French and Indian war. But Paine's most powerful argument against reconciliation deals with the toll this conflict is taking on the colonies. Moreover, this clever man then labels people of America “sufferers” and “grievously oppressed,” immediately assuring all common citizens that he was sympathetic toward their collective plight. Paine expresses his focus on ideas, not men, and thus establishes his relative intent to focus objectively. The world is your destiny.
After this battle I will name the brave soldiers that have battled in this Great War like all the other famous war heroes got mentioned in earlier years. I will then go on to say “This story shall the god man teach his son” by using this quote i will tell my men that this battle's story will be passed down for generations. “From this day to the ending of the world, but we in it shall be remembered. “By telling my men this I am saying that from this day on us men shall be a part of history. Towards the end of my speech i will try to convince my men that they are happy they are low on men by saying "we few, we happy few".
Act III scene I consists solely of a soliloquy by Henry V and is in every respect, the finest war speech in the entire play. A battle speech of one of England’s most famous kings. The speech comes shortly before the famous battle of Agincourt. The scene is Harfleur, and as the English army enters; Henry urges them on with an attiring speech. The speech confirms for the audience the personal and inspiring leadership of King Henry V. His speech is a classic example of refrain, of boosting confidence and raising the courage of his men so that they could carry of such a famous victory.
