In other case, she was raised by her father and brother because her mom died when she was two. When Scout was a narrator this is what she said to the reader “’ Our mother died when I was two, so I never felt her absence”’ (7). This quote shows that she is tomboyish because her dad been in her life and she don’t really miss her mother that much and there really no female in her house except the maid. This is interesting because back then you see girls that are very girly and wear dresses and make up. Another reason that Scout is so interesting is because she is smart.
Sphinx’s Princess Sphinx’s Princess by Ester Friesner (2009) is an enchanting tale of a young girl learning to stand on her own. Nefertiti is kind, loving and beautiful daughter of the queen’s brother. She has everything she could ever want or need in life, except that what she wants and needs isn’t decided by her. Nefertiti goes behind her parent’s backs and gets lessons of reading and writing from one of the scribes, which is forbidden for girls to do in ancient Egypt. She loves her lessons and being able to read and write stories is her favorite thing to do.
They are both very intelligent; Molly is the top student at West River Academy and Clementine was a top student at her school. In contrast, Molly didn’t like Clementine near the end of the book because she found her very selfish, but her stepmother Paulette tried to be more understanding. I also found Clementine selfish and not a very likeable character, but I understand Paulette’s point of view. I really like how the author interwove a rhyme into the story. I’m sure most of you know “Oh My Darling Clementine” which is a famous catchphrase of Huckleberry Hound who would sing it horrendously off-key.
As he continues with his story, he confesses that that night he was the one to strangle the wife, “I strangled her till she died” he says. Still, we can’t be sure he did so because Casper claims he lost his memory, and isn’t sure whether what he remembers are dreams or memories. By the end of his statement, he says that he met his wife’s ghost and was terrified because she recognized him, even though he changed his name and was a different man now (yes, but she recognized him before he "changed" his identity). I believe that the reason he was terrified of the recognition is because he tried to hide or somehow erase his history
“Who would have thought the old man had so much blood in him?” (pg. 154, Cooney) this quote shows the queen confessing about her killing Duncan because she was greedy and wanted the kingdom to be hers. She ended up dying later in the book because of the consequences for killing people in order to gain power. 3. Rhetoric: Pathos- “The sobbing of his little girl would only prove how ccompletely he had failed.” (pg 46, Cooney) is pathos becauses it showing how Mary’s father wouldn’t die while seeing his daughter crying.

Yet after her mother tells her the story of Rose's maternal grandmother, who never knew worth until death, the formerly weak-willed Rose becomes determined to assert herself.
Even with these men being Prussian, the author still made them out to be helpful, kind, respectful gentlemen. As soon as Mother Savage got news of her son’s death, everything changed. It was eye for an eye to her. The Prussians killed her son in battle, so she was going to take the lives of each Prussian she had as revenge. Just like her son, they had mothers who were waiting for their return and worried for their safety.
A Meticulous Revenge Not many would think a young girl would be capable of committing murder and getting away with it. Jorge Luis Borge’s short story “Emma Zunz” centers around a young girl, named Emma, who learns that her father has passed away. Emma reveals that her father was imprisoned for embezzlement; a crime that he did not commit. She carries the secret that the man responsible for the embezzlement and her father’s imprisonment is her father’s boss, Aaron Loewenthal. Emma plots and executes the murder of Loewenthal to avenge her father’s death.
It is true that Lady Macbeth originally came up with the plan to kill the king, but it is also true that Macbeth was selfish and greedy. If he had been patient he would have learned that he had already been promoted to Dane. His wife did encourage him to commit murder, but she did not force him to choose his path. The three witches could also be considered responsible
Is Macbeth Responsible For His Downfall? Who is responsible for the downfall of Macbeth? He is manipulated by the witches, encouraged by his wife, but ultimately he chooses to act. His first conference with the witches, Macbeth’s ambition was planted and his mind was overwhelmed with thoughts of murder and betrayal. It fair to say, in addition, that if his betrayal caused this extensive pain that clouded him after he murders Duncan, Banquo and the Macduff’s that it wasn’t a case of fate and was his own doing.
