“Piggy’s arms and legs twitched like a pig when it has been killed” (181) the quote shows the death of Piggy as the death of an animal as well as the loss of an innocence. The author quite possibly compared them both in order to show how the hunters no longer view humans as different from animals. 4. “Roger edged pass the chief only just avoiding them from pushing his shoulder.”(182) Signifies this break in authority how this seemingly low ranked child is able to almost push his chief off to the side. Signifies a break of order and the pyramid of leadership.
The chapter ends by a group of soldiers harassing Hassan about his mother and calling him a Hazara. Chapter 3 The chapter begins with stories of Baba and how he has overcame other people doubts. He once built an orphanage with no prior architectural experience, married Sofia Akrami from a royal bloodline, became a successful businessman, and even fought a bear. The chapter ends by Amir telling us about how he tried to please his father by playing on the soccer team and watching buzkashi which ended up by him crying all the way home. This truly shows how different Baba and Amir are.
Barbara continually dismisses his claims that there is a place called Tralfamadore because she thinks he became senile as a result of an airplane crash which left him with a fractured skull (Vonnegut, 28-30). Billy does not become angry or frustrated with her, he remains almost indifferent. However, he does desperately try to salvage his dignity by continuing to try to explain to her what he knows, but he does so in vain. Barbara’s behavior towards her father is characterized as overbearing and she is portrayed as the bitch in Billy’s life. On the contrary, Billy’s Tralfamadore wife, Montana Wildhack, is kind and understanding.
Crucible/Modern-day Witch Hunt The “Wenatchee sex ring witch hunt” parallels the witch-hunt of The Crucible because in both cases devout Christians are being unfairly persecuted as a result of unfounded accusations made by teenagers, who are incapable of understanding the ramifications of their accusations. The most obvious example from The Crucible is when Rebecca nurse, the saintly, angelic character of the play, is accused of witchcraft by guilty teenagers trying to shift the focus of blame away from themselves. In act II Reverend Hale, who is brought to rid the evil from Salem, is troubled about Rebecca’s accusation and that “… if Rebecca Nurse be tainted, then nothing’s left to stop the whole green world from burning” (Miller 67). It is somewhat ironic that Mr. Hale is so concerned and in disbelief of Rebecca being accused yet he let’s her fate “… rest upon the justice of the court” (Miller 67). However, that very court was itself guilty of unjustifiably assuming that the accused were guilty of witchcraft and would sentence them to death unless they admitted to such.
Many Clergymen acted in a disobedient way and were crass to their most loyal of followers. Often, they were uneducated or even illiterate and as a result, they failed to administer the sacraments as what was expected of them. Priests having wives and children were not uncommon, despite this going against their vows of celibacy. Clerical marriage was a controversial issue that proved to be an important aspect for Luther in is argument for the corruption of the Church. The problem amounted and became so worse that in 1512, the Council of Seville requested that all their wives should leave their children.
Abstract The story of Edward Gein is a shocking and gruesome tale that took place on an isolated farmhouse in the lonely Midwest farming community of Plainfield, Wisconsin.

Their father gave little in way of salvation from their mother. George Gein was an alcoholic abusive father that frequently beat his wife and children. After the death of his father and brother, Eddie was glad to have his mother all to himself.
Hangcheng Zhou Instructor Fox Writing 102 Section 38 27 Feb.2012 No Absolute Barrier between Good and Evil in “A Good Man is Hard to Find” “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, written by Flannery O’Connor, is an example of Southern Gothic fiction that uses a series of ironic events set in the American South to explore certain values. The author creates two seemingly opposite characters, the grandmother and the Misfit to show her opinions about what is good and evil. The grandmother regards herself as a graceful and devout lady, but actually she is so self-obsessed and shallow that her behavior leads to her entire family’s death. By contrast, the Misfit is an obvious villain who never pretends to be a good man and, quite ironically, he may be the only one in this story who has deep thoughts about life. Through the development of the story, readers may draw the conclusion that there is no straightforward answer to what is good and evil in the world.

This ever- trusting, “happy-go lucky” mindset is the type of person Manly Pointer is looking to target. Pointer is the traveling bible salesman/ rapist who opens the eyes of the atheistic Hulga and makes her let go of a beliefs for a second then she realizes basically that both of their respective beliefs are baseless that they are just external covers for the real internal self.
