?Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came? I. My first thought was, he lied in every word, That hoary cripple, with malicious eye Askance to watch the workings of his lie On mine, and mouth scarce able to afford Suppression of the glee, that pursed and scored Its edge, at one more victim gained thereby. II. What else should he be set for, with his staff? What, save to waylay with his lies, ensnare All travellers who might find him posted there, And ask the road? I guessed what skull-like laugh Would break, what crutch ?gin write my epitaph For pastime in the dusty thoroughfare.

This is because the novel takes place in a futuristic world where a totalitarian government is able to control its citizen’s thoughts and watch over them at all times. Two major themes in this book are the systematic dehumanization of humans and the weakness of the individual when confronted by the power of the state.

The story is narrated by a young girl named Jean Louise Finch, who is almost always called by her nickname, Scout. Scout starts to explain the circumstances that led to the broken arm that her older brother, Jem, sustained many years earlier; she begins by recounting her family history. The first of her ancestors to come to America was a fur-trader and apothecary named Simon Finch, who fled England to escape religious persecution and established a successful farm on the banks of the Alabama River. The farm, called Finch’s Landing, supported the family for many years. The first Finches to make a living away from the farm were Scout’s father, Atticus Finch, who became a lawyer in the nearby town of Maycomb, and his brother, Jack Finch, who went to medical school in Boston.

Jazz Ritter Period 1 Romeo and Juliet Essay May 16, 2011 Furious Fate ?What fates impose, that men must needs abide; It boots not to resist both wind and tide?. This was said by William Shakespeare, also the author of Romeo and Juliet. It is clear that Shakespeare believes fate drives people's lives; people do not control their own destinies. In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, free will does not affect fate; destiny cannot be changed and is symbolized by several motifs in the play.
