People will also be angry once they find out the secrets that have been kept for one’s incentive. Pain will be one of the repercussions of the secrets kept hidden based on one’s impulse. One example was when Caroline was debating whether or not to send David a picture of Phoebe on the day of celebrating her confirmation. While she’s pondering what to do, she starts to think about how he may hurt her the same way he hurt Caroline, “without even knowing it happened” (234). Caroline, as far away as she may be from Norah and David, did suffer because of David’s secret.
In ‘In Cold Blood’ Truman Capote questions whether Perry was born ‘bad’ or is a victim of circumstances. Discuss this proposition in relation to ‘In Cold Blood’. In ‘In Cold Blood’ Truman Capote portrays Perry Smith as an individual who has been born into an unfortunate life and has highlighted that Perry is a victim of his upbringing and surroundings.

‘’War brings out the worst in humanity’’ Compare and contrast the ways in which your chosen writer presents war and its impact on their characters. Throughout Mister Pip and Spies, both authors use certain techniques to present how war has impacted their characters. Although both novels are set in war time, it is interesting to see how the characters have been affected by different situations brought on by war, like suspicion, bereavement and violence. Spies, written by Michael Frayn is a ‘‘bittersweet’’  adventure, about war time games, told through the recollection of Steven’s older self. Similarly, Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones follows Matilda, a young girl caught in the midst of a horrific civil war.
I believe because of their novelistic writing style, it made it easier for us to understand the brutality of what happens behind bars. Life without Parole is not just a simple textbook explanation, showing that corrections officers are abusive. It goes into gruesome detail about how it can be so awful behind bars that people begin to mutilate themselves commit suicide. II. Victor Hassine &Ronald Cotton The question of whether Victor Hassine was arrogant (putting himself on a pedestal) was raised in our class discussion.
Jane Yolen's novel, 'Briar Rose' explores war and persecution as one of the main ideas of the text. The Holocaust and the events of World War II are major themes in this novel. The text seeks to educate readers about the terrible events that occurred in Europe during the war and about the persecution and mass murder that was instigated (bring about) by the Nazi rule.

The Jewish religion is celebrated and explored in the first few chapters as the rituals surrounding Gemma's death are woven (knitted - put together) into Becca's story.
Gothic literature does demonstrate the consequences of a disruption in the natural order, gothic literature is a representation of society in its time, each novel raises issues and their consequences in order to advise and educate its readers against the actions the protagonists take. In Samuel Coleridge’s ‘Rime of the ancient mariner’ the mariner’s actions against nature, with religion/nature being the natural order in society as religion centres itself around the confession of sins done by men or women, the mariner is seen to be punished for his actions, deemed wrong in its time.. "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" helps implement all this cycle with the murder of the albatross and how he must pay for his actions. In Coleridge’s poem, the mariner’s crime against nature: the shooting of the albatross disrupts the natural order the consequence of this action is nature begins to start the punishment the mariner for his crimes with, "Water, water, everywhere nor any drop to drink." He is punished harshly for killing the symbol of nature that everyone reveres. He is beaten down by the sun with its rays and is taunted by the endless sight of water that he cannot drink.
Experts in the fields of Anthropology, psychology and Sociology are the people who dig deep into Kip’s life and put logical clues together to create a hypothesis to explain why exactly Kip Kinkel committed these acts of evil. Although only Kip himself knows why he did it, at least we can come closer to the truth thanks to our societies experts. Anthropologists are the experts who take a close peek into the culture and society during Kip’s childhood and life to see what could of drove Kip to committee his series of actions.

One of the most hated upon artists that Kip was a huge fan of was Marilyn Manson.
Amanda Lenhart, who writes the opposing argument, provides the reader with numerous statistical information on teen bullying, even providing too much information on surveys of students and parents. Her opposing argument was full of survey results that lend toward the “YES” argument than it did to the “NO” argument. Amanda Lenhart is a senior research analyst for Pew Internet and I feel that she failed to convince the reader in her opposing view. In “Stalking Made Easy: How Information and Communication Technologies Are Influencing the Way People Monitor and Harass One Another”, Penny Leisring begins her argument with a story of a woman by the name of Randi Barber who was being stalked by a man from her church, Gary Dellapenta. Gary started out posting things about her on the Internet.
on April 16, 2009 does not describe the type of person the shooter was, but the effects of the impoverish conditions he was trying to overcome that had haunted him and unfortunately caused him to reach a violent boiling point. Long Beach Police Chief Anthony Batts said, “‘the motive of the shooting was still a mystery.’” He then went on to say that these suicidal shootings are becoming a national trend because of the tension going on today in our society. All in all, the entire article addresses the topic of race/ethnicity in a subtle tone in which it throws out key words and phrases that help us understand what kind of situation it is, where it’s taking place and ultimately the kind of people that are involved. Initially, no stereotypes were created or perpetuated in the story except for the fact that the idea of shooting others out in
