How does Miller present Joe Keller as a tragic hero In All My Sons? Joe Keller is a man who loves and values his family very much and has sacrificed everything, including his honour, in his struggle to make his family prosperous. He is a self-made business man, who in spite of his humble beginning, has managed to work his way up in the business world and become a successful manufacturer. Joe perfectly fits into the category of tragic hero. Unlike Greek plays, where main characters were kings and nobles for they were thought to embody the whole community, modern tragedies present an average leader of a family, neither completely good nor completely evil, whose mistake leads to his self-destruction.
Lovewell” by Mercy Me I chose “Mr. Lovewell” by Mercy Me for my first song because although the words are not similarly matched with the short story I chose, the tone in the beginning of the song matches the description of Richard Cory in the short story. The song describes Mr. Lovewell “waking up every day the same, Believin' he's gonna make a change, Never wonders "if" but "when"”. In the story Richard Cory is admired immensely by the people in the town. He was “A gentleman from sole to crown, clean favored and imperially slim” (893).
Nerves of Steel History 11 10/31/12 Andrew Carnegie is hailed as a man who has done many great services to this nation. While this belief is true and his efforts are numerously noted, Andrew Carnegie remains a man just like the rest of us. He has had his struggles and he has had his triumphs. Like most of us, he came from humble beginnings, and like all of us at some point in our lineage, walked through the doors of Ellis Island and stepped foot on American soil to realize a dream: a dream of a better life, a dream of success, and a dream of endless possibilities. Andrew Carnegie and his family had just become part of the glorious melting pot that we call the United States - a land where hard-working men and women can realize their full potential and achieve greatness (much like Carnegie was destined to do).

Pacettas Rules for Leadership Kevin J American Military University Frank Pacetta had a lot of native talent but he squandered it in his early years with Xerox (Pacetta p.12). Luckily for Xerox and himself, he was never fired and received the training and mentorship that he needed to morph into the type of leader who would take charge of a failing district and turn it into one of the top performers in the country. Mr. Pacettas parents were a large influence on him as a person but also as a leader and boss. His mother had to take care of his brother who was handicap and he heard stories about how great of a boss his father was. Mr. Pacetta would take the never quit attitude from his mother and the business and people savvy of his father and combine them to make one outstanding mentor and leader.

Conflict experienced by Willie Loman in Death of a Salesman Death of a Salesman: Tragedy, Symbolism and Broken Dreams, a play written by Arthur Miller, depicts the confusion, aggravation and disappointment faced by willy Lowman. He faces several amounts of conflicts as the play unwinds, conflicts that are derived from his inability to accept himself for who he is and not who he wants to be. This is his biggest conflict, he is in belief that popularity brings success, he believes that he is well liked and is a super sales man; as a results of this he allows his entire life to revolve around this inner conflict. Portrayed in this essay is the importance of these conflicts faced by the characters in “Death of a Salesman.” The protagonist Willy Lowman has aspirations of becoming a super salesman, much like the character of Dave Singleman, a sales man that he met when he was young. Dave was a people person and had the ability to sell merchandise and be liked by his clients.
That being said, Shakespeare has given each character their fair share of attributes that are certainly repugnant, and therefore only making the above statement partially true. The men of the story are all characterised as the leaders of their society who dominate the women in their lives. They are bigoted and manipulative in their own ways; however they still manage to maintain calm and measured exteriors. A prime example of this type of male in 'Othello' is Iago. Iago, to everyone else, seems like an honest and good man who will do everything in his power to help those around him succeed, but is really just power-hungry, two-faced and manipulative.

He is suffering from many problems such as emotional and financial issues which lead him to create a different person, the side of him that is the person he wishes he could be, significant, bold, and heroic. The title of this short story, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, confirms that the reader will be involved in Walter Mitty’s “secret life” which is actually his imagination.
I find not only does this describe me from a professional standpoint, but also from a personal standpoint. My father only had a high school education and was an extremely successful businessman. He taught us that through hard work, treating people fairly and displaying enthusiasm and passion in all that you do, would always result in a positive outcome. I
