    I think that the Trojan war was unjust, there was no reason to start the war in the first place. Wars are supposed to be the last resort of action, only to be fought when there are no other options. Wars also need a valid reason to start. Just because a lady gets kidnapped doesn't mean that the whole country should be put at risk, forcing the men to fight.

Behind the theory is two parts being theoretical and…

    Ivan as ‘‘a middle-class man who lived with his family on an income of twelve hundred a year’’ (Chekhov, 2004). This tone set by Chekhov depicts the fact that the Dmitritch family household is one which is average.
