Next, she is in denial she still believes that john proctor still loves her that he still cares for her. She says this in a creepy tone, “You loved me John Proctor, and whatever sin it, you love me yet” (146). Her morals are all confused not caring for the sins that she has committed is the exact opposite of hoe they raised their children something is just wrong. Lastly, she is willing to kill anybody who stands between her especially Goody Proctor, John Proctors wife; also the other girls that she leads in a messed up cult. She says this as if she were the reaper herself, “let either of you breathe a word, or an edge of a word, about the other things and I will come to you in the black of some terrible night and pierce you” (144).
What these Iranian have to understand is that their media is corrupting information, because America’s government tries its best to respect the religion of other people; after all it was found based on the idea. but can do little to make the American people respect the Iranian way of Life, because America is a democratic
Nero’s power and strength derived from his mother, Agrippina the Younger. At the beginning of his rule Agrippina acted as a regent, taking control of many aspects of the empire. She manipulated Nero so much that she in essence ran the empire from behind the scenes. Her constant predilection for manipulation eventually causing her son’s rebellion and possible madness as he began to despise her, giving way to her fall of power and ultimately her death. In the words of Tacitus, “she could give her son the empire, but not endure him as emperor”.
The histrorian James Romm portrayed Agrippina as a woman who was simply trying to escape the restrictions imposed on her by society. To quote james Romm “she stands out as the sole Roman woman to attempt to break the ultimate glass ceiling: to wield the power of a princeps, not just behind the scenes but before the astonished eyes of the senate,” Romm takes into account both the ancient writers and his own interpretation of Agrippina. Romm believes that her determination not only furthered her power but ultimately caused her downfall. He observes that the majority of Claudius move show us that Agrippina was shown as a “political asset”. Romm concluded that even though Agrippina may have been manipulative and ambitious she was still able to achieve what women of the era could not.
In Catching Fire, the story was fast-paced and intense, Katniss still struggling but really maturing as a fighter and a person. She really could be the spark of the revolution, the girl from District 12 who could save the country from final, utter ruin. Like the rebels in Panem, I believed in her. I wanted her to take charge and lead. I get that she was damaged and confused.
In conclusion, Lady Macbeth asserts her dominance and takes over situations through her superior personality. To start, the characters drives are on different levels as well and help prove the point why they are opposites. Both characters maintain a desire and drive for power but Lady Macbeth's actually drives her counter parts proving her to be the superior of the two. Her drive for power happens to be so ridiculous that it controls Macbeth's actions. She basically questions his man hood at one point and and claims she would slay a baby for him.
The Pankhurst women were militant suffragist who stood by the notion of “deeds, not words”. This idea meant that women needed to use drastic measures to achieve gender equality because subtle efforts such as petitioning and picketing were not proven to be effective. Alice joined the Pankhurst women and brought attention to the movement landing them front page coverage in local newspapers with their unconventional, yet effective methods such as window smashing and heckling. Alice became a revolutionary which led her to imprisonment and hunger strikes where she was fed under forceful conditions. While imprisoned she remained steadfast and was encouraged by words written upon prison walls: “Resistance to tyranny is obedience to
These acts were only allowed in response to acts of violence brought on by the Israeli side, which frequently affected innocent civilians. Rantisi said the bombs were a moral lesson for the Israelis, so they can feel the pain which they caused on innocent Muslims, because Rantisi says they are the victims in this struggle, not the cause of
Antigone, crazy as she might be, was sticking up for the people that are ruled unjustly by a leader who becomes corrupt with power. This statement is especially true for women. “And so, we must stand up for law and order, not let ourselves be bested by a woman. If yield we must then let us yield to a man.” (Sophocles Line 660). Creon said himself that if it were a man that he would’ve yielded but because it was a woman he could not do
She understood and I have learned my lesson with stereotyping people to be something they aren’t. The argument this could fall under the ad hominem fallacy. Reason being that a woman who works for the army and doesn’t like deployments. That person could very much love the army, but hate deployments and have a valid reason why. Example being that she hates to be away from her family, but loves serving her country just by being in the
