In the beginning of the play Ajax claims, “...My name is Ajax:/ agony is its meaning. And my fortunes/ are cause indeed for agony of wailing cause” (Ajax, 24) He believes that he burdens the people around him by continuing to live. He finds justice in taking his own life because so much of his society already holds so much animosity towards him. Not long after Ajax’ slaughtering took place, Tecmessa says to the Chorus, “He is freshly miserable. It is a painful thing/ to look at your own trouble and know/ that you yourself and no one else has made it” (Ajax, 17.)
This reminds me of the movie Red Tails because the movie is about African American pilots who were discriminated by citizens and other pilots. The African pilots were taunted and white pilots didn’t want to work with them at all. | 2. In chapter 8, Jim tells Huck why he decided to run away. He states, “She pecks on me all de time, en treats me pooty rough…sell me down to New Orleans..I lit out mighty quick, I tell you.” (50) | 2.
• “Hanging Colby was doubtless against the law, and if the authorities learned in advance what the plan was they would very likely come in and try to mess everything up.” • “Colby said he thought drinks would be nice but was worried about the expense. We told him kindly that the expense didn't matter, that we were after all his dear friends and if a group of his dear friends couldn't get together and do the thing with a little bit of éclat, why, what was the world coming to?” • “…because if the hanging was being rained on he thought it would look kind of dismal.” • Find three other examples of irony on your own and explain why they’re ironic. 3. Define “euphemism.” Identify one example of a euphemism in the story. 4.
Tom and Daisy’s invitation (and attendance) to one of Gatsby’s extravagant parties allows Fitzgerald to truly cement the gulf between Gatsby and Daisy. When Gatsby urges Daisy to “look around” she describes she is having a “marvellous time” yet her speech is interrupted by Gatsby. This is an indication of Gatsby’s nervousness because his usual finesse and polish has been cracked due to the significance he has placed on Daisy coming to one of his luxurious parties. It also reveals Gatsby’s lack of true social grace, despite his obvious monetary gains, we can see his impoverished roots (revealed earlier in the chapter) come to light. Gatsby also urges Daisy to “look around” because he is desperate to show her what he has created and ‘earned’ for her.
Lastly I think he feels rejection and thus is discouraged from further pursuing Daisy at great expenditure. 3.) He has just finished humiliating Gatsby. Daisy didn’t live up to Jay’s expectations.\, Tom’s just exposed him as a “bootlegger” of sorts, and he had just finished making a fool of himself “denying everything, defending his name against accusations that had not been made.” Tom is pretty confident Gatsby “realizes his presumptuous flirtation is over.” I think it further displays his arrogance. He seems satisfied with his victory.
One satire Twain mainly went for is the Southern civilized society. In the novel, Huck and Jim encounter the Duke and the King. The Duke and the King got caught from swindling people out of their money for their own purposes. They pay for their sins by being tarred and feathered. Huck expresses his thoughts on the subject by saying, “It was a dreadful thing to
Some people consider the unusual events surrounding the opening of the tomb as evidence for a ‘curse’. Some think this may have occurred due to the items in his tomb that were collected and broken and even king tuts mummy itself was said to have been chopped into pieces and parts were even missing. According to legend, lord Carnarvon soon died from a mosquito bite and his three legged dog howled and dropped dead and all the lights went out in the city of Cairo. And then others of Carter’s party began to die of mysterious causes. Carter, himself had to suffer the fate of watching all his friends and associates drop off like flies, even his pet was killed by a cobra in a freak incident.
In comparison to a court decision one cannot use personal feeling towards the final decision in a case, but Huck felt otherwise. Huck is being disciplined for his beliefs and he does not want to be part of a lifestyle that does not support his ways. For example, his choice not to turn in Jim because he knows of what he did shows that Huck understands why Jim is escaping and feels for him rather than just to do the right thing according to society. Huck sees Jim as a friend, a companion whom he finds close not as a slave. With that said he truly is able to see that society's way of treating Jim is completely wrong.
At first I would cry and pout, but then I realized it wasn’t fun getting into trouble with my grandmother. I learned that having too much fun can ruin the fun you’re trying to have. Halloween night and prom night for me were completely different, but also so much alike. The difference between them were that with Halloween it was scary and people only went trick or treating when they were younger and dressed really scary. It was a time to get a lot of candy and walk around with people.
Oh but "fun" doesn’t just mean 'drink, party, be wild and stupid' to some of us. Or, "I have the best friends ever!” Yeah, till you both have a crush on the same guy, or til you ditch the party scene (then see how many of your friends still talk to you). Speaking of friends, you're not approachable when you're with your
