    She cooks the frozen leg of lamb she kills her husband with, calms herself down, tidies herself up and rehearses what she is going to say when she goes to the market, “Hullo Sam” (Dahl 2). She went to the market and acted very casually towards Sam the clerk so that he would not suspect anything.

Mary made the policemen and the detectives believe she is a grieving widow and she made them feel sorry for her, she was tearful whenever she spoke with the officers. Mary even made Sergeant Noonan give her a drink of whiskey because she said “Yes please, but only a small one. It might make me feel better.” (Dahl 4). Mary was even able to persuade Sergeant Noonan by making him have some whiskey, Mary said “Why don’t you have one yourself, you must be awfully tired.” This shows Mary as being very cleverly manipulative. She even convinces the others to have a drink of whiskey. Mary also convinces them to eat the leg of lamb that she cooked by saying to the officers that “Patrick would never forgive me, God bless his soul, if I allowed you to remain in his house without offering you decent hospitality.” (Dahl 4). Mary made…

    In 1996 Dolly the sheep was born. However, she was not born like most other sheep. Instead, Dolly was cloned from the DNA of an adult sheep. Although Dolly seemed healthy, she died in 2003 after being diagnosed with a progressive lung disease. Dolly was the only sheep out of 277 attempts that made it to a live birth. Would it be safe to take that chance when experimenting with cloning human babies? Some people seem to believe so, and agree with the idea of cloning to have a child. These people…

    The leg of lamb is one such example of a symbol, as it represents the woman and how a woman can take down a man, contrary to common belief during the time.

In “Lamb to the Slaughter”, the house is the cage, which Patrick tries to escape, and Mary wants them both to stay in. Mary herself could be considered a symbol,…

    Dolly changed modern science and our ideas about biology in many ways. For most scientists the birth of Dolly overturned the assumption that the whole process of cell differentiation was irreversible. Life is started as a fertilized egg and the cell divides and multiplies and by the time we are born, there are maybe 200 different cell types, each differentiated into a particular role that is determined by the proportion of active genes within the cell. Many Scientists assumed that this process…
