An example of good xenia happening in the epic movie is when the suitors come to Odysseus’ house and Penelope and Telemachus follow the xenia rules; give them food, baths and a place to sleep. When Telemachus doesn’t want to keep the suitors in his house anymore and wants to go against the xenia rules, Penelope
I believe John had a genuine concern and love toward his wife but not wise in his treatments of her mental health. He missed the mark in his Isolation treatments toward his wife mental condition. As the Author cites “John does not know how much I really suffer, he knows there is no reason to suffer, and that satisfies him”. Moreover, John tried very hard to make his wife comfortable at the house even having his sister help, although she didn’t like it. “There comes John's sister.
“Sweet, Sour, and Resentful” In this story, Dumas tells Gourmet magazine how her mother prepares a Persian feast weekly for a great number of people. She tells how her mother is bitter about cooking every week for so many people and in a small place. The family had moved to the states before their friends and family, so they were called on to help adapt when they moved to the area. That’s when the weekly meals started. Dumas stated, “Displaying the hospitality that Iranians so cherish, my father extended a dinner invitation to everyone who called”(321).
So, he comes to his place where he thinks its called "Hotel California". While he's there he meets this woman who appears to be very popular because "she(s) got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends" (stanza 3). He then begins to settle down in the hotel, calling up the captain to bring him some wine. The captain is obviously not used to having guests like him around. He later comes up to this dining room where people are gathered for a feast, but in reality everyone is there for a reason hence the "we are all just prisoners here of our own device" (stanza 6).
Gatsby’s guests admire his Rolls – Royce, his marble swimming pool, his station-wagon and his “corps of caterers” the alliteration of this emphasizes how many caterers Gatsby has. The description of what Gatsby has prepared for the parties he holds shows conspicuous consumption. The repetition of the different types of alcohol Gatsby serves to his guests’ echoes that he is disobeying the law in order to have fun. Since prohibition had started in 1920 and The Great Gatsby was published in 1925 it had been going on for 5 years. “Most of his female guests were too young to know one from another.” This shows that he liked to have young women at his parties and that prohibition had been enforced for a long time.
It is a surprise ending type of story but I see few people as really being able to read this story.) The night of the big party comes, Bella is dressed so perfectly, the house is wonderful and awesome food and drinks for 100 people are at the ready. Two hours past the start time and Bella is in despair as no one has come then she is so happy when the first guests arrive. But wait, the guests are undesirable types who may have money but lack breeding. Bella has no choice (in fact she loves it) but to tell her butler that she is not
Immediately after election, Opimius cancelled several of Gracchus’ laws an called into question his actions in Carthage, “omitting nothing that was likely to irritate him.” A rabble-rouser might have used this as ammunition to riot or try and overthrow the government but Gaius “bore these things very patiently,” and only “at the instigation of his friends,” gathered his supporters to oppose the consul’s decisions. At the meeting of both parties one of the consul’s attendants made an obscene gesture and was killed on the spot by Gracchus’ party. As custom of his character, Gaius was very saddened and “severely reprimanded his own party,” for this action that would eventually lead to his death because Opimius was rousing his party into a frenzy at that same moment. When the two parties met, Gaius could not be convinced to bring any arms except a small dagger under his cloak. Gaius wanted to turn himself in to avoid fighting but his loyal supporters would not let this happen and after Opimius denied the proposals of agreement for the second time he sent his troops after Gaius and his party.
Though Heathcliff and Catherine become the best of friends, Hindley does not take kindly to Heathcliff becoming part of the family. When Mr. and Mrs. Earnshaw die, Hindley takes over Wuthering Heights and makes Heathcliff a servant, degrading Heathcliff. Meanwhile, even though she truly loves him, Catherine sees Heathcliff as beneath her in society and social class. When Catherine meets Edgar she is impressed with his manners and wealth is then promised to be married to Edgar. It's hard to settle such an intense love with the choice she makes, but somehow she is able to work out the reasoning in her head; “I've no business to marry Edgar Linton than I have to be in heaven; and if the wicked man in there not brought Heathcliff so low, I shouldn't have thought of it.
An example of this is Harry Potter, and Snape. Throughout the book, Harry has always thought that he has been bad but actually he has been on his side the whole way through. This is like Mrs Sparsit in Hard Times. She is first introduced to us in Book 1, chapter 7. She is looking for a job, so she becomes Mr. Bounderby’s house servant.
According to Mother Teresa, “If you judge someone, you have no time to love them.” I first saw this quote when it was posted on my sixth-grade classroom wall, and I hated it. Rather, I hated Mother Teresa’s intention, but I knew that the quote’s veracity was inarguable. I felt that it was better to judge people so as not to have to love them, because some people don’t deserve a chance. Judgments are shields, and mine was impenetrable. Laura was my dad’s first girlfriend after my parents’ divorce.
