Who eligibly said his helicopter was shot down in the Iraq war. Remember this happened back in 2003, because of his pride and committing to the lie that burden has stuck with him and now the whole world knows he is a liar. I agree with the quote, because if a man that is successful at lying has too much pride, and won’t acknowledge when he is wrong. Which won’t allow one to learn from his mistake. During the play Creon, a noble King, imprisons a woman named Antigone.
Spill the blood!” (174,175) Reasoning: No civil person would repeatedly state this phrase. This definitely represents savagery. It shows how bloodthirsty these boys are and then when they recite this while murdering Simon; it makes it even more gruesome. They’re so consumed in all the blood that they don’t even realize they had killed Simon until it is too late. • “Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man’s heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy.” (235) Reasoning: This quote that was stated at the end of the book shows the reader and myself that the world of savagery only leads to murder and sorrow.
Her life is like his life, her emotions and reactions determine his own emotions and reactions. He grew up to be as careless as Daisy is. When Daisy and Gatsby kill Myrtle towards the end of the novel, all Gatsby cares about is what Daisy is going to feel about the murder and nothing else. His carelessness about the future as a young, ambitious man leads to the eventual downfall of himself, and along with him the American Dream. Jay Gatsby’s death at the end of the novel portrayed that there is no way possible to attain the American Dream, even any regular dream.
Several modern rulers (from everyday fathers to leaders of the country) have begun as ‘brave soldiers’ and ended as crazy destroyers because of their poor choices and the consequences. Psychologists have shown us that, behind seemingly straightforward human motives (good or bad), there are often extremely complicated emotions and intentions. From Macbeth killing practically everyone in his life for his own gain, to the armed robberies and riots happening all over the world, we see greed, violence and people struggling with the concept of right and wrong in our everyday lives, no matter how far we think we’ve come from Macbeth. Lately we’ve been hit by a tidal wave of armed robberies. From general stores to petrol stations and even a train station in Perth has come under attack from guns and knives.
He is baffled by Mr. Chiu’s remarks, “If only I could kill all the bastards,” and thinks to himself how “ugly” his professor looks. (Jin 185) This is a clear sign that all the morals and principals are now gone in the character. Having refused on principle to sign a false confession, he has been consumed by sickness and negativity that he has no qualms about what he just did, but is still aware of what is going to happen. This is his way of punishing the province and the police that falsely accused him of sabotage, but ironically ended up creating a bigger demon that anyone could have
He uses Chillingworth actions as an irony act, as an example, that even the evilest person can still reach redemption and forgiveness; as long as they accept their sin and the consequences. Chillingworth develops from a kind scholar into an obsessed fiend; he is less of a character and more of a symbol doing the devil’s bidding. In this last chapter the reader discovers that Chillingworth “positively withered up, shriveled away.” Obsession, vengeance, and hatred consumed him, but, despite all this, he leaves his fortune to pearl, which is somewhat ironic, because of all the evil he has done; perhaps this act can, to some level, redeem the person whose
One of the greatest examples of irony ever is the “crisis of conscience” scene, when Huck decides to “do the right thing” by social standards of the time period, and write to Miss Watson to reclaim her “property” Jim. Then Huck remembers Jim's generosity and concludes that he should not send the letter. Ripping up the note he declares, “All right then, I'll go to hell.” With it, he rips the racist teachings of his childhood out from his conscience. At that very moment Huck has convinced himself that he has done the completely wrong thing by social standards, the reader knows that he has actually done the right thing and that Huck's good impulses have prevailed. This scene is the perfect example of dramatic irony because the reader has an all-knowing perspective of the situation while the main character( Huck) struggles with a problem that we already know the answer to.
Huck thought that he and Jim had escaped the two scammers but they showed up at the raft, and Huck “wilted right down onto the planks, then, and give up” (241). The con men do the horrid deed of turning Jim in for a reward, which causes Huck to have to choose “betwixted two things” (246), to tell the Widow where her slave is or “go to hell” (246) and help Jim escape. Huck chose hell. And the evil twosome were caught and avenged for their criminal activities by being tarred and feathered. Huck “was sorry for them poor pitiful rascals….Human beings can be awful cruel to one another”
Thy strength, Hester; but let it be guided by the will which God hath granted me! This wretched and wronged old man is opposing it with all his The Scarlet Letter might!—with all his own might, and the fiend’s! Come, Hester—come! Support me up yonder scaffold’” (Hawthorne 263). Dimmesdale wanted to die in Hester’s hands when he confessed that he is truly Pearl’s father.
Antigone and Creon were both far too immersed in his own foolish pride to recognise his perverseness, and that is the source of tragedy. Creon’s hubris had reduced him into a raving lunatic only capable of destructive behavior. Antigone’s high sense of pride and honour leads her to the road to dying of her own cause. Ultimately, this results in not only Antigone’s death, but the death of Creon’s son and wife. Their high sense of pride and honour, and their sealed fate is the source of all that is
