Vernon Scannell also talks about the father’s reaction and what he does. “I took my hook and honed the blade” implies that the father has sharpened his blade for battle with the ‘Regiment of Spite’. The writer also describes the action the father does in order to destroy the nettles. “Went outside and slashed with fury”, the word ‘Slashed’ represents big sweeping movements. Scannell then implies the fact that the father’s work in cutting down the nettles
He also tells the murderers that Banquo is blameworthy for their tragic, unhappy lives. After angering the murderers, Macbeth switches to a more sarcastic tone and manipulates the murderers so they will feel like they need to prove themselves men, worthy of Macbeth’s presence. By asking questions, Macbeth leaves a gap between him and the murderers and waits for them to fill it. He asks “Are you so gospeled/ To pray for this good man and for his issue/ Whose heavy hand hath bowed you to the grave/ And beggared yours forever? (3.1.98-101).
The D’Angelos need to forgive the boys for drilling holes in the kayak, essentially killing Ben, because JT and Digger received a punishment. By forgiving the boys, the D’Angelos allow all of them the opportunity to move on from the incident. Next, forgiveness is a main theme because Brady needs to forgive JT and Digger. Brady is very upset that his friends go behind his back and use his idea to sabotage the kayak. Digger makes him feel like its partly his fault because he gave them the idea of drilling the holes in the kayak.
The ‘watery grin’ is another emotive description also serving as an opposing image. The way in which Scannell merges the child’s laughter of comfort and relief with the tears of pain from the sting of the nettles shows that the child is being helped by his father to get over the pain. In ‘Manhunt’, there is imagery indicating how carefully she treats her husband. “And handle and hold the damaged, porcelain collar bone, and mind and attend the fractured rudder of shoulder blade.” The point she makes about her husband being injured and she wants to treat him. Use of alliteration with ‘handle’ and ‘hold’ puts a strain on how delicate his body must be at this time.
Revenge Revenge is a harmful action against a person or a group. It is characterized as a form of justice, seeking or taking vengeance for oneself or another person by retaliating in response to a grievance. Within the short declaration "Of Revenge" by Francis Bacon he describes the self-destructive nature and the injustices that revenge brings about while detailing the benefits of forgiveness. While "He Becomes Deeply and Famously Drunk" by Brady Udall's story explores the concept of revenge as Archie contemplates killing his father's murderer until realizing the elderly man Calf red Pulsipher is not worth the effort and lets go of his anger. From the short story "Spanish Roulette" by Ed Vega the poet Sixto vows revenge against a local gang member who raped his sister and battles with himself to make the right choice.
Hamlet has now taken this personal with his own desires for revenge, as well as his obligation to his deceased father. Likewise, Fortinbras also seeks revenge for his father’s death. Horatio is informing Marcellus and Bernardo as to why they are guarding the gates. He tells them the history of the Fortinbras family, “Dar’d to the combat; in which our valiant Hamlet /…Did slay this Fortinbras” (I.i.87-89). This is explaining the reason young Fortinbras has for revenge.
Montresor vows revenge from one man who ill-treated him, while the Misfit takes his revenge out on anyone whom he crosses paths with, like the Bailey family, whose double standards and indifference towards others he feels are liable for the problems in the world. Fortunato is Montresor’s one and only victim. Montresor is determined to get back at Fortunato after all the agony he had to undergo from him without feeling regretful or having legal consequences: “I must not only punish but punish with impunity” (375). After Montresor leads Fortunato into his family’s vaults, he executes his plan and that was to kill Fortunato. In contrast, the Bailey family is probably one of many people that the Misfit crosses paths with after escaping from jail in Florida.
This creates conflict between the monster and Victor as the monster soon begins to hate him for abandoning him. Furthermore, in chapter 16 we see conflict between the creator and the created again: “you belong to my enemy—to him I have sworn eternal revenge; you shall be my first victim”. The monster’s anger towards his creator is channelled into revenge as he kills his brother. Shelley uses the language device direct address to depict this. The pronoun “you” is repeated, this makes the reader
The Manhunt + Nettles War is a destructive force that can be seen as a catalyst for a broken relationship, and this idea is shown in two poems: The Manhunt and Nettles. Whilst both have a literal meaning of remedying and preventing physical pain, both poems show that war is a symbol for destruction for relationships. The Manhunt, as the title suggests, is a definite poem about a desperate search for a man, a man who is being sought after by his wife, Laura in an attempt to save the conditional relationship they have through examining his physical and mental pain seen through a series of metaphors. The poet, Armitage is sending a message to the readers: are efforts to save a relationship futile? Correspondingly, through a conceit in its title, Nettles is a poem about a boy who has fallen into a nettle bed and seeks comfort from his father.
It is clear that at the beginning of this excellent comedy Oliver and Orlando are not the best of friends, in spite of their sibling relationship. Note the way that in Act I scene 1 they fight, and Orlando, having his brother trapped in some kind of wrestling hold, tells us that his brother has committed the following crimes against him: My father charged you in his will to give me good education. You have trained me like a peasant, obscuring and hiding from me all gentleman-like qualities. The spirit of my father grows strong in me, and I will no longer endure it! Clearly the hatred that they feel for one another is expressed through their behaviour and the words they use for each other, such as when Oliver insultingly calls his brother a "boy" and he tells the Duke that he hates Orlando just as much as he does, knowing that this will be bad for his brother.
