He represents Jesus and the vibrant, joyful mead-halls are representative of heaven. The monsters and their shadowy and dark lairs in Beowulf represent evil; they represent the devil and hell. Beowulf’s first battle, with Grendel, shows a battle between good and pure evil. His final battle, with the dragon, is more than a battle between good and evil; the embodies the idea of wyrd, or fate. The battle is a sign that even though good has the advantage, good can never have an ultimate victory over evil.
However the coward, Johnny Friendly got the better deal in the fight when he called his ‘henchmen’ to attack Terry, but somehow the hero of the film gets to his feet and leads the longshoremen into the factory. At the end of the film, like the birds, we can see that the men on the waterfront will be free of the mob’s control now that the mob has been brought to justice. Terry was not always brave though, he used to be one of the crowd, believing that “everybody’s got a racket”. He worked for Johnny and was the one who led Joey up to the roof where someone pushed him off. But apparently to the mob Joey ‘fell’ which is an outright lie, the audience and Terry knew it.
In his song he sings, “you fasten the triggers for others to fire then you sit back and watch when the death counts get higher” which basically described what war was becoming at that time. Bob Marley also felt that these people who continued to contribute to war and pointless harmful acts should be punished, which can be expressed through the lyrics “and I hope you die and your death’ll come soon.” Bob Dylan’s “Only a Pawn in Their Game”, shown in document 2, expresses how some state laws were corrupt and only really favored white wealthy men. “The deputy sheriffs, the soldiers, the governors get paid, and the marshalls and cops get the same.” The lyrics of this song go to show that the poor white men would be used by the wealthy and they couldn’t really be blamed because at the end of the day they have been brainwashed and taken advantage
Will he have to suffer the consequences, because someone so pitiful committed something so wrong, that Tom Robinson could never do? Yet the lies told and believed by this town have formed an inescapable future for a young man. We say that all men are created equal, yet when we put a black man’s truth against a white man’s lie. We live in a world in which small-minded people assume a black man must be guilty, that he is wrong no matter what the evidence says. Don’t be prejudice; you have the moral duty of the Ninth Commandment: “Thou shall not bear false witness”.
To kill a mockingbirds’ theme was whether people are essentially good or evil. Describing Scout and Jems’ transition from a childhood innocence, in which they think that people are good because they have never seen “evil”, to a more mature perspective, in which they have witnessed “evil” and wrongdoing and must incorporate it into their understanding of the life. They experienced hatred, prejudice, and ignorance. They are both introduced to prejudice at the beginning of the book and throughout. The main example of prejudice in this book is at the trial, when the towns people wrongly convict Tom Robinson, he is convicted purely because he is a black man and his accuser is white.
Huck resolves to trade his own fate, and spend eternity in hell, for the fate of Jim and thereby acknowledging that Jim—a black man and a slave—is equal to himself. Mark Twain is subtle in his attempts to reform racist notions. Racism is indeed a main topic of the novel, but the novel itself is in no way racist. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain is an inspirational narrative that bared various issues present in the late 19th century. It is both stimulating and educational, and should not be
He sat in jail with Hester and made her promise to keep their marriage a secret. There was nothing he wanted more than to see this man dead. “In a word, old Roger Chillingworth was a striking evidence of man’s faculty of transforming himself into a devil.” Dimmesdale, a man looked at with much respect by the townspeople, asserts his evil in many forms. He watches the woman he loves and his daughter live in shame and does nothing to help, which shows “the portion of him which the devil claimed, and through which he sought to win the rest.” Dimmesdale was the town minister who was supposed to represent the good things God gives us. But, he was said to be a servant of the “Black Man.” He watched Hester stand on the scaffold holding their child, with a scarlet letter embroidered on her clothing for all to see, alone.
In line 89 he is to be thought of as a prince because he had defeated Beowulf when no other man in the kingdom could. Allusion being another biggie that the author uses is spread evenly throughout this poem. The author throughout the poem makes a repetition about how Grendel is “the seed of Cain”. The author writes, “He bore the curse of the seed of Cain.” (Ln 65). When the author writes that Grendel is the seed of Cain they are explaining on how horrible of a creature he is.
All the pills did was take every bit of pleasure out of sex. Thus did science and morals go hand in hand. (Welcome to the Monkey House, p. 29) This passage contains strong hints of sarcasm, and prove that Vonnegut believes that science and government should stay out of our personal lives and out of our minds. While Billy contained all the tradition elements of a villain in this story, he was doubtlessly the hero. Again, Vonnegut's main character is composed of two complementary sides; one good, and one evil; together forming the whole person.
Maycomb is a microcosm because throughout the story you are faced with prejudice white people. Tom Robinson is a innocent black man they convicted a of a crime he did not do, but it was okay because the they believed the white man over the black man. This was how it was in 1930’s in America. Maycomb symbolically represents the United States in the 1930’s because that is what everybody believed. This is how Harper Lee used the microcosm to develop her story.
