Although Demetrio Macias, the general (colonel) of a rebel army is hunting down the army of Pancho Villa, he seems to have the same ideals as the enemy. In addition to Demetrio Macias, we meet women like Camilla

    I must say that I enjoyed the play proof much better than the play Topdog/Underdog. The ways that the two brothers spoke in Topdog/Underdog was just not how I speak, so I had a harder time following along and understanding what they were meaning. I also just wasn't a real fan of the meaning of it. I thought it was cool, in a way, that the theme of the play was the title itself. I was just not a fan of the play. However, the play Proof was something that I think many people could relate to in a way

In this essay I am focussing on two modern children’s series as case studies, as I feel these books epitomises the underdog as the hero in children’s fiction. The first collection I am referring to is the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. This is one of the most successful children’s book of all time, and has been the focus of many studies as a result. The second series

    The Unfair Treatment of Women My mother has always promoted sisterhood and support for women. Growing up, I was taught that women, although we can do anything we want to do, need a support system, because we are traditionally the underdogs, and we should not accept being treated unfairly. My mother likes to tell a story about how, when she was a girl, she told her dad that she had decided to become a lawyer when she grew up. In response to her proclamation, my grandfather, an attorney himself

    clearing the accused, Carl Lee Hailey's, name.  The lawyer feels that it is his obligation to humanity to do so.  Similarly, the case Atticus accepts is something which goes to the essence of a man's own conscience.  Atticus is unable to treat the underdogs of the town how the majority of people act towards them.  Clearly the people of Maycomb are narrow-minded, bigoted and hypocritical, and Atticus  Finch is not.  Nothing can be done to make the prejudiced, perverse people hear the truth.  This dogmatic

    discuss how to maintain justice. Maintaining the balance between these two is a tedious task. In many conflicts through history the aftermath has been more of a problem to the defeated than the war itself, becoming financially crippled, becoming underdogs of the world, being restricted. These are all problems faced by the dark horse of the battle, after a battle keeping a stability of even-handedness and retribution is a daunting task. Many trials through time have been subject to comments by critics

    Martin, a veteran of the French and Indian War, thinks of himself as a battle-weary peacenik (his eldest son joins the army against his wishes), but if he believes in liberating the colonies from the tyranny of King George III, he believes even more fervently in smiting the holy bejesus out of the soldiers who have torn his family apart. That these aristocratic oppressors happen to be the same redcoats who are fighting to quash the American Revolution is, shall we say, a matter of the highest moral

But we do come with one thing; and that’s called a soul. A soul that can be molded in any way which determines our personality and even our future. As one of my most favorite entrepreneurs’ said, “When you create something that is popular, when you create a solution, you’re an innovator and you solve problems for people

In 1922, Orwell began working as the assistant superintendent of police in Myaungmya, Burma, and this is where his hatred toward imperialism and its tyrannical rule over the underdogs in society developed. He felt guilty torturing and flogging unwilling subjects. The community had taken too much power over the individual, and the imperialist society commanded Orwell to enforce this injustice: “I was stuck between my hatred of
