    In the short story The Rattler, the author questions the justifiability of taking any life. Understanding the reason for a killing can allow one to sympathize with a killer, finding his cause sufficient, or alternatively empathize with the victim. In The Rattler, the author presents two opposing sides, one vindicating the man’s killing of the snake, and the other finding it wrong that the snake was killed. The author’s use of language and details causes the reader to empathize with the man for the killing, feel sympathy for the human-like snake, and experience both sympathy and empathy through the description of setting. The imagery used to describe the setting creates both sympathy for the man and empathy for the snake. The man kills the…

    It is much more variable because it is dependent on human thinking (McLaren, 2013). Different people have different perspectives on different issues which may be due to age, culture, sex, experience among others. The ability to fit oneself into another person’s shoes is what determines how effective the communication will be. Many people confuse empathy with sympathy which is much similar yet so different. Both are important tools in determining effective communication. Sympathy has much more to…

    “Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.” 1Peter 3:8, ESV. When I was little, my family said I carried my heart on my arm, because I was so sensitive and caring. As I have grown, sometimes this has been a struggle for me because I let my sensitivity overwhelm me and make me worry about everything. When I reflected on my own characteristics to write this paper, I challenged myself to transform this into a character that would help…

    Pasolini’s feeling of sympathies was linked to his mother and the schoolteacher. Mamma Roma is perhaps the only film in which one can see poet, novelist, and philosopher Pasolini as filmmaker, who has full control on this creative medium. He himself trained his cameraman so that he can capture the film according to filmmaker’s own vision. Compositions and editing are done perfectly according to the concepts laid down in the book. This is the reason behind the fact that this film is not only rich…

    But it is the writers right to freedom of speech. What president Lincoln did though was wrong, freedom of speech was one of the very foundations this county was built upon when it was founded on and what the president did was wrong. One of the biggest constitutional rights I believe that Abraham Lincoln violated was the suspension of habeas corpus and the arrest made on the Maryland legislatures for being so called Lincoln called having “Southern Sympathies”. Some Historians believe why…

    Through examination of Antigone’s and Kreon’s origins of pride and reactions to consequences in Sophocles’ Antigone, I found that Antigone herself drew more of my sympathy. Her brother’s improper burial as her basis of pride along with her steadfastness through times of retribution appeals significantly to the pathos of the audience. Such qualities—especially in contrast to Kreon’s selfish hamartia of hubris—provide for a tip in the scale of sympathy in favor of Antigone in the Greek tragedy.…
