Analysis Of The Novel ' Mother Savage '

- Although not stated directly, Guy de Maupassant suggests that his main character, the protagonist, is also the antagonist. The title alone leads the audience to believe this is true. Though it is in third person and one cannot read the thoughts of the characters, the narrator accurately shows the reader the change of heart. Traditionally, the protagonist and antagonist are separate individuals, but Mother Savage should not be viewed as such. Victoire Simon (Mother Savage) experiences a change in herself that forces her to share the role of the protagonist and the antagonist.  In order to be a protagonist, any certain character must be the principal person with whom the story is concerned (C...   [tags: Antagonist, Protagonist, Guy de Maupassant]

Savage Inequalities by Jonathan Kozol

- In Savage Inequalities, Jonathan Kozol describes the conditions of several of America's public schools. Kozol visited schools in neighborhoods and found that there was a wide disparity in the conditions between the schools in the poorest inner-city communities and schools in the wealthier suburban communities. How can there be such huge differences within the public school system of a country, which claims to provide equal opportunity for all. It becomes obvious to Kozol that many poor children begin their young lives with an education that is far inferior to that of the children who grow up in wealthier communities....   [tags: Savage Inequalities, Jonathan Kozol]

Beowulf, By Seamus Heaney

- In society, cruelty often leads to dehumanization, but it can also be the reaction to dehumanization. Perpetrators are either idolized or villainized, while victims tend to be blamed for the actions committed against them. In Beowulf, cruelty is used as a social crutch, as well as a symbol of humanity, or the lack thereof. Barbarity, and the intent behind it, is what makes the heroes and the villains one and the same in Seamus Heaney’s translation of Beowulf. Grendel’s alienation from society motivates his cruel behavior, but Beowulf’s idolization leads him to be revered for the same actions....   [tags: Beowulf, Hero, Social class, Grendel's mother]
