Bullock, grabbed her husbands arm, because she automatically stereotyped the two men, thinking they would harm her. Grabbing on to her husbands arms was a sense of safety for her. One of the black men is enraged, by the feeling of being considered a “bad” man because he’s black in a white neighborhood. While Bullock feels threatened by the two men, who simply by their looks of being black.

Act 4 Scene 1 in Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare The play is a comedy, which centres on two couples and their love affairs, although there are other subplots, which involve disguise and trickery. The scene itself focuses on the wedding of Claudio and Hero during which Claudio strongly rejects Hero. It is a dramatic scene where the tension of the audience is most raised during the play.

In act 1 scene 2 of “Hamlet” the character Hamlet speaks his first soliloquy which reveals his innermost thoughts and feelings to the audience. In this soliloquy Hamlet’s unstable state of mind is evident as well as his feelings of despair about his father’s death and his disgust of his mother’s remarriage to his uncle Claudius.

Hamlet’s character and personality are shown in this soliloquy through the use of classical imagery, diction and
Jane Austen, author, successfully used the literary technique of sentence structure (or syntax) to showcase identity in Pride and Prejudice. Austen uses an extremely characteristic voice in order to construct an authentic selfhood. Austen gives each character a distinct voice, sentence structure, and communication style.
This movie continues to show all different types of racism. In one scene, two black men were walking down the street complaining of how everyone is so racist. The district attorney, Rick Cabot (Brendan Fraser), and his wife, Jean Cabot (Sandra Bullock), were walking down the street.

Later on, the two black men steel a SUV at gun point. The passengers of the SUV just happen to
Act 1, Scene 1: When Horatio visits, the guardsmen are trying to convince him that there is really a ghost and that they are not lying; Horatio clearly does not believe them because he says “Tush, Tush, ‘twill not appear” (1307), speaking of the ghost they keep mentioning. Shakespeare uses this dialogue to show the difference between the men, especially how the guardsmen believe that there is a ghost and Horatio does not. The reader can start detecting the difference between them and see the class difference because the guards believe in this imaginary figure whereas Horatio doesn’t. When the ghost appears, Shakespeare plainly proves, through Marcellus, that Horatio is a scholar when he says, “Thou art a scholar; speak to it, Horatio” (1307). That is a big clue to the reader that Horatio is different than the rest because they think of him as a scholar. Through dialect, Shakespeare reveals how Horatio is a scholar.
A turning point in the play Romeo and Juliet is in act 3 seen 1 when
Romeo and Juliet was written by William Shakespeare around 1594. The play Romeo and Juliet is about two start crossed lovers who were born into a world with an ‘ancient grudge’.

Richard's heart fluttered in relief when he heard Lexi's familiar voice, and he fixated his gaze on the silhouette that appeared at the second-floor window, before the Heiress herself appeared. The nerves that had strained his mind and body all day, loosened, and he began to shake at the sight of Lexi, proof his lover was safe. It wasn't over yet, and the knowledge that Karl Williams was aware of their intent - just how aware, Richard still wasn't cognisant of – meant his senses remained heightened as his attention moved from her to the vine.
Act 2 Scene 5 For this scene I chose the song “What Goes Around…Comes Around” by Justin Timberlake. I chose the song because it talks about a woman breaking up with a man and the man saying that she’s going to deserve whatever comes at her because she did something bad which means that something bad is going to happen to her. A quotation from the song that proves this is:”What goes around, goes around, goes around Comes all the way back around.” This is basically a song about karma and it talks about how a person always gets what they deserve.
Scene 1: This scene shows where they are; Scotland. Also showing that there are 3 witches, that are also know as the Weird Sisters. In the scene they are waiting to meet up with someone. That person being Macbeth. They have a long conversation with Macbeth.
In 1813, her thirty-eighth year, Jane Austen published her second novel Pride and Prejudice. She had begun this work in 1796, when she was twenty-one years old, calling it “First Impressions.” It had so delighted her family that her father had tried, without success, to have it published. Eventually, Austen put it aside, probably not to return to it until her first published novel, Sense and Sensibility, appeared in 1811. “First Impressions” is no longer extant, but it was presumably radically rewritten, because Pride and Prejudice is in no way an apprenticeship novel but a completely mature work. Pride and Prejudice continues to be the author’s most popular novel, perhaps because readers share Darcy’s admiration for the “liveliness” of Elizabeth Bennet’s mind.
