For those who are forced to learn this other’s culture, and take it as its own, it works the same as a slavery of mind, an imprisonment within a stranger’s head, as if your own thoughts were not right anymore. In some cases, the imposition of the domineering culture is so strong that can result in an erasure of any cultural identity of a society, being left only the new adopted parameters. Such impressions are what can be found in the works of Jamaica Kincaid’s On seeing England for the first time and Sandra Cisneros’ No speak English. The aim of this paper is to point out how these features are presented in each author’s text, and to help understand these works as a direct reaction to this process of cultural dominance. For that, it is necessary, first, to know the origins of each author – from where they are, and where they live –, to, from that, understand to what exactly they were reacting for, along with their personal history, which are very present in the stories.
A: Abigail visited John Proctor in jail to try to persuade him to run away with her as she leaves to board ship, that was included to affect our perception of Abigail, and also show that her motives are different to that in the original play. 4. Why did the end of the movie end with the hanging? A: I think the end of the movie ended with the hanging to symbolize the fact that John had not committed the act of
She is a temptress who disturbs the fraternity of the men, for whenever she enters the bunkhouse, or at least stands in the doorway, preventing the men's passage, Curley's wife is a source of tension: The men worry that they will succumb to her physical allure; they worry that Curley will appear and become jealous and enraged against them. Once she has tempted Lennie, he sins and kills her--albeit accidentally. At any rate, the death of Curley's wife is the end of the "dream" for Lennie and George and Candy. There can be no Eden for them as George must kill Lennie before he is caught and his soul destroyed. With the death of the child-like Lennie, the innocent dream of having a ranch is also
In the beginning of the movie, I believe that Shindler was doing what he was doing out of selfishness and for his own gain. Yes he was still risking his life but not for the right reasons. Later in the movie, when he is out horse riding with his mistress, he witnessed the Kraków Ghetto Massacre. He saw the people being chased out of their “homes.” This is also where he saw the little girl in the red coat for the first time. The picture of innocence, walking among the worst evil in the world.
(Miller, pg 1131) Later we see Abigail turning against Tituba to save herself. This pattern occurs constantly throughout the play. Whenever the reality begins to peek through deception, she buries it by accusing someone else of witchcraft. This is the first step in this confused teenagers journey through mendacity. Abigail’s stance in court is complicit in leading Mary Warren away from the search for the truth.
Pea 3: Shakespeare really extrudes Lady Macbeth’s disturbed nature to the audience with her clear ignorance of conscience early on in Act 1 scene 7 when describing killing a child for Macbeth if she said she would do it. “I would, while it was smiling in my face, Have pluck’d my nipple from his boneless gums, And dash’d the brains out, had I so sworn as you Have done to this.” The instantly noticeable violent imagery with “pluck’d” and “dash’d” provides clear ignorance of conscience to claim she would carry out an act like this and not be affected. Pluck’d provides an image of the baby being easily accessible and exposed to just be pluck’d. Dash’d provides the effect of violently thrusting the baby in an evil manner at increasingly high speeds to see the splatter of evilness and pain of the brain symbolising the end for the baby. Shakespeare has used “brain” because the imagery is further emboldened due to the fact it is gruesome.
The play by Arthur Miller, The Crucible, is full of irony, false accusations and ignorance. The townspeople of Salem are so blind to the truth that they let a group of teenage girls destroy half their town simply by making up stories and accusing others of being witches. These puritan people were so obsessed with cleansing their town of evil that they let that fear of witchcraft run their lives, this also makes it very easy for people to get what they want very easily, whether it be land or revenge, these people were corrupted. There are many conflicts throughout this story Thomas Putnam is a wealthy farmer in Salem he is also greedy, and holds a grudge against Francis Nurse for preventing Putnam’s brother-in-law from being elected to the office of minister. He wants the riches without the work.
She has the ability to build up a climax into a higher level and then to defuse it by ending an act – turning it into an anti-climax. Moments of high tension include the initial accusations of witches, and John Proctors attempt to undermine Abigail. This could suggest that Abigail Williams is only part of the play to relieve or exacerbate problems occurring in the play, demoting her from the category of being the most important character in, “The
Whore! Whore! ” ( Miller 3. 825-30) He does not think beforehand or consider the outcome, he acts on a whim without any premeditation. Eventually Proctor is also thrown in jail and in due time is convinced to confess to witchcraft, they have him sign a written confession that will justify all of the other higher stature hangings, Proctor realizes this after he has already signed, “( his breast heaving, is eyes staring, Proctor tears the paper and crumples it, and he is weeping in fury, but erect.
Gatsby tells Nick, "Daisy stepped on it. I tried to make her stop, but she couldn't" (p. 144). Daisy does not have enough conscience to stop the car even though Gatsby is telling her to pull over. Daisy's immorality in the period after she hit Myrtle also leads to Gatsby's death. Instead of taking blame for driving the car she ran away from the situation and fled town as quickly as possible with Tom.
