Undying Hatred

A curse can change a person. It can drive them insane. So insane where the agony is too much to bare. They have hatred, evil within and no true love from a single soul. The hatred is what comes out the most and transfers over to the people around them. Many say they don’t have hatred or evil but, there is always a little somewhere deep down. Queen Revenna has undying hatred because of the curse of beauty that lives forever. Her hatred was conveyed to everyone around her no matter how closely related they are. The enchanted mirror is Queen Revenna’s only satisfaction to her beauty. When the Queen stands in front of the mirror and says, “Mirror, mirror on the wall who’s the fairest of them all?” A figure will appear in front of her that only she can see. It tells her what she wants to hear. She always goes to the mirror when she needs the confidence that her beauty is unique and will never die. The second time she goes the mirror in the movie, she doesn’t get the answer she was hoping. The mirror tells her, the way only she will be able to keep her beauty forever is by killing Snow White and taking her heart. Revenna couldn’t stand that someone was standing in her way of forever being beautiful. She felt hatred towards Snow White and wanted her heart so that nothing else could stand in her way of being alive and beautiful forever. Especially, since Snow White is the only one who can kill the Queen because her beauty is much greater than her’s.
Revenna trusted the enchanted mirror to tell her what she needed to do. Though it was the only thing that made her believe her beauty was a gift, no one else agreed with it. No one loved the Queen. The mirror came to life so that it showed how much she loved her beauty and would never give it up for anyone. That meant she would kill anyone who was in her way of being the one and only. The reflection in the mirror was the Queens only place where she felt loved and understood.
As the Queen started to lose her power she found that she could not even trust her own brother to do a simple task of bringing Snow White to her alive. The Queen yelled out her hatred to her brother saying she could not trust him anymore or anyone. She healed her brother as a gift to show that she still cared but she needed him feeling well enough to find the person that she needed the most. The longer it took her brother to find Snow White the older and powerless the queen became. She was running out of time and she was starting to feel outraged. When her brother was killed she felt that he was dead. It made her weaker. The queen was alone now with no one to trust or anyone to love. Her plans were falling apart and her beauty was wasting away. As her beauty was fading it made her angrier and more compassionate to find Snow White so she could live forever.
The young men that were around the queen always reminded her of the men that had broken her heart in the past. She never liked the king. Revanna just wanted his kingdom. She hated the fact that once their Queen died they would just find another one and not appreciate the beauty they had. She knew how that felt being traded for another because her beauty was not good enough to last. She wanted everything to revolve around her beauty. Her beauty and power was number one to everyone around her. The men just made her realize that better than before. Most importantly the curse of beauty that she had was making her feel as if no man was good enough to live a life with her that was full of power and control. She couldn’t even see her brother as one after he could not live up to the standards she asked for. When she kills the son of the old man in the movie she tells the son that, “he would have been a worthy king but he disobeys his queen which is a disgrace.” The queen doesn’t want a man to be in control of her life, she wants the beauty and control to be in her hands. She thinks the men have nothing to do with the women once they become their queen and that the queen has no power. They are just a face that is beside the king The hatred she has towards the men around her even the ones in her family. Snow White pulls the worst of hatred out of Queen Revenna. When the Queen uses up most of her magic to transform into William, this let’s her get extremely close to Snow White to kill her. The queen was willing to use up every little bit of magic to get what she wanted, which was Snow Whites heart. When Snow White lived through the poison apple that she had been fed by the queen she was outraged and wanted nothing more than to have her killed, but by her own hands. The Queen shows her hatred towards her by taking the beauty out of everyone she could find and waiting for Snow White to come to her. Snow White led right into the queens plan and it made her thrilled. Her beauty was looking amazing and her power up to strength to get rid of the one she hated the most.
In the beginning, the queen didn’t have as much hatred towards Snow White as she does in the end. As the movie progressed her hatred towards Snow White progressed excessively as her beauty progressed as well. The Queen didn’t see her as a threat when she was a little child, she was just some royal child that everyone thinks is dead now. As time progressed and the Queen became less powerful Snow White began to rise from place she couldn’t see. It made the Queens hatred increase to an extreme rate towards the people around her. As she talked to Snow White in the movie she told her that she had lived twenty lives. Those twenty lives shows the hatred that had been built up and the love that was never given to the Queen and was shown in one battle against the one who could ruin everything she lived for.
In conclusion, Queen Revenna had lived a lot of lives and through out those lives she had learned that men were rotten and no good to her anymore to love or even to have ruled a kingdom. Everything that had been done to her was caused by a curse her mother gave her when she was young, the curse of always being beautiful and living forever. Over the years she had lived, so much hatred had been built up that she could no longer trust her own family. Those around her did not see her beauty any longer but saw the things she did that was evil and never wanted anything to do with her. Queen Revanna was the one that people looked at as evil and had hatred towards the ones around her. The thought that she could have hatred after all those twenty lives because those around her did not treat her beauty with respect anymore but as a cursed one who was nothing more to them other then a object that will never go any where. So her hatred comes from those of her past.

Wuthering Heights Review

...change in Heathcliff from light to dark. It is at this point in the novel that Bronte begins paralleling the mood of Heathcliff with the weather, as it’s always raining, or in a dark room, never in the bright light of day when conversations with he and the other characters occur. The humiliation that Hindley and Edgar cause is just a small number of the reasons that Heathcliff spends the rest of his life exacting revenge on those who have done him wrong and aided in wrenching Catherine away from his grasp. Even after his return from college, now an educated young man, Heathcliff realizes that he continues to be thought of as member of a different social class and ultimately is the reason that, although Catherine professes her undying love for him, she still marries Edgar. Throughout Wuthering Heights, Heathcliff is projected to be a dark person, always hard and closed off to any outside opinions as to how he should run his life, but there was a time when he was happy, open to loving someone with his entire being. One of the first indications that he was happy was early in his life, although short-lived; Heathcliff has an actual family after being adopted by Mr. Earnshaw. Even against the protests of Mrs. Earnshaw, who frowns upon the adoption, Mr. Earnshaw instructs the maid Nelly to take care of the miniature main character, “Mr. Earnshaw told me to wash it, and give it clean things, and let it sleep with the children” (Bronte, 1847, p. 30). ......

Israel

...once able to enjoy a national existence. Many believed that by achieving this national existence once again, the Jewish people may be able to avoid any future calamities. It was the harsh living situation of the Jews in the many different host-countries that they inhabited that led to the development of the idea of Zionism. Zionism seeks to establish in Palestine, for such Jews as choose to go and remain there, and for their descendants, a legally secured home, where they may live together and lead a Jewish life, where they may expect ultimately to constitute a majority to the populations, and may look forward to what we should call home rule. The Zionists seek to establish this home in Palestine because they are convinced that the undying longing of Jews for Palestine is a fact of deepest significance; that it is a manifestation in the struggle for existence by an ancient people which has established its right to live, a people whose three thousand years of civilization has produced a faith, culture, and individuality which will enable it to contribute largely in the future, as it has in the past, to the advance of civilization; and hat it is not a right merely but a duty of the Jewish nationality to survive and develop. (Brandeis) Having a national existence by creating their home in Palestine would be extremely beneficial to the Jewish people. A national existence enables such aspects as their own military, economy, political system, education systems and many......

Adapting Plays Into Movies

...the fourth longest-running show in Broadway history. After all the success, What better way to continue the magic of this thrilling show than create a movie out of it? The story tells of two women (Roxie Hart and Velma Kelley) who live in Chicago and are responsible for murdering their husbands and must fight to get out of prison, in order to pursue their dreams of Broadway stardom. After deciding to delve a bit deeper, I chose to go a bit farther back in history. The story of Romeo and Juliet (William Shakespeare 1591-1595) has been adapted into film over thirty times in one form or another. The original storyline is about two star-crossed lovers that end up tragically committing suicide as a result of their undying love for each other and their families’ undying hatred for the opposing kin. The one adaptation that seemed to stick out to me was director Baz Luhrmann’s rendition that he released in 1996 starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. The film is an abridged modernization of Shakespeare's play. While it retains the original Shakespearean dialogue, the Montagues and the Capulets are represented as warring business empires and swords are replaced by guns. With a bit of help from Wikipedia, and the old Romeo and Juliet script I had lying around from a past high school production (in which I portrayed the vivacious, yet dim-witted Nurse) I was on my way to analyzing the differences and similarities of adapting plays into movies. When finding key differences in......

Boyd-Polk SOC/315 Mr. Hassan El-Amin Week 5, Individual Assignment 9/31/2007 Ropes of Hatred Hatred is not a behavior that humans are born with, it is a behavior that is taught and bred into people. In most cases this act of instilling hate is incepted during child hood, by a parent or a close relative. In some cases people who breathe hatred may have been introduced to this way of thinking out of their household by close friends or acquaintances. In either case this way of thinking has caused a strain on intercultural relationships in past years and it stills haunts our current society. The Deep South still wreaks the singe of racial discrimination, it seems the further south you travel the more you can experience or hear about how prevalent racism still is in these areas. It is always bad when the common citizens have this mentality; however when your judicial system is comprised of individuals who still embrace this thought pattern, then you really have to ask yourself who can you trust ?or who can you even turn to? when the officers that are suppose to up hold the laws are tainted along with the laws that are suppose to govern the land. It is apparent that the governing body of the United States places racial issues on the back burner; it seems to me that the government will only address certain issues if media attention warrants it. There is no excuse why all laws are not......

Duffy and Pugh

...separate from harm and danger. However, I personally think that Duffy chose to include these dark, threatening characters into her poem as a way of suggesting her bitter side as a writer. Perhaps Duffy now feels that, looking back, her teacher provided an inaccurate, false hope for the future, due to her deep negativity towards her secondary education experience. This point is backed up in the first line of the poem; “You could travel up the Blue Nile”. Of course, the Nile river is, in fact, polluted and brown. This strengthens Duffy’s idea of education being an unrealistic portrayal of what the world is really like. These two contrasting interpretations could be said to symbolize Duffy’s overall feelings towards education. Her undying love, as well as her deep hatred for the total experience. This poem cont...

Terrorism vs War of Terror

...the war had an undying hatred for the Russians. They felt the Russians were at fault for the war butdidn't see the flaws of their own country. For example, when the U.S. went into Iran in 1953 because a revolution and new leader would cut off American access to their oil. As a result, the CIA paid people $100 to have a revolution to overthrow the leader so we could access the oil. Then the U.S. put a dictator into power in Iran. Most people were unaware of these actions and therefore hated the opposing side. Today, many youths feel the same way about Afghanistan and Iraq. They have asense of hatred for these people for the Twin Towers incidents and the attacks on the Pentagon. However, not all of these people are terrorists which people like to assume. As in the Cold War wherepeople thought everybody in a communist country was communist, we see the same scenario with terrorists. A lot of people hate these people because they want the troops to come home. If they randomly come home and don't resolve this war completely, more attacks are likely, and with new weapons and technology, they could be much worse than 9/11. The troops must train officers in Afghanistan to recognize the Taliban and al Qaeda and show them how to handle these situations without America's aid. Therefore, I believe that the War on Terror is our generation's Vietnam War. It is so widespread that nearly every family is affected by it in some way, shape, or form. We already see hatred towards......

...world. Firstly, Ghandi was an activist who fought against the British-ruled colonization of his native country of India in the early 20th century. He is famous for his practice of non-violent resistance, and rejection of a hierarchy classed society model. Most of Ghandi’s philosophy’s centered on a belief that human nature is innately good, and that the majority of lasting change could not be achieved through violence but through spiritual force which he believed was far more influential. Ghandi believed in a “Soul force- Satyagraha” as opposed to physical force which he demonstrated through operations of civil disobedience (Chaparian and Cockerton, 160). Ghandi believed his practices could transform the thinking of his foes and turn their hatred into embracement. An example of Ghandi non-resistant protest was the “Salt March” in which Gandhi organized a non-violent march protesting the British Salt Tax which affected a mass majority of marginalized citizens of India. Martin Luther King is another famous social change activist, and he was largely influential during the civil rights movement. King shared many of Gandhi’s beliefs regarding non-violent resistance and spiritual opposition; in fact Dr. King was largely influenced by Gandhi. Dr. King was one of the most inspirational leaders in human history and focused on changing the minds and emotions of his oppressors in his fight for equality. His strong stance against violence as a predecessor to more violence is a key......

Avatar

...be settled by those that have direct and passionate hatred for one another. While the Na'Vi are presented throughout the film as the colonized, it is quite possible that they live a more socially civilized live than those that do not inhabit the world of Pandora. Whether or not race is considered on a word by word analysis throughout the film, the general undertones of the film present the comparison of two strongly different groups interacting in ways that would lead viewers to believe the race was the primary cause of the confrontations presented. The simple construction of the film allows viewers to believe that whites are a supremely technological race, delving into great depths of science, technology, and other intellectually stimulating activities, while native colonies are trapped by spiritual awareness, athletic poise, and a guise of storytelling misfortunes. While satisfying critical analysts on the diverse backgrounds of the racism seen in the film, the story simply could not have been told in any other way according to James Cameron. Despite being called a “white messiah fable” and the staunch comparisons between the film and certain Disney made films, Avatar succeeded in what it set out to do. Tell a story of two individuals from different backgrounds that went past all the sources of pressure to solve problems across the lines of difference. Race, while an issue for most in the film, cannot stop the undying and perpetual connection between two beings who......

Romeo and Juliet Themes Essay

...Juliet spoke ‘deny thy father and refuse thy name, or if thou wit not, be but sworn my love, and ill no longer be a Capulet’. Her undying devotion to Romeo soon became an overpowering force in which she began to ignore all common sense and rational thoughts. The love in this play was not a pretty, idealized emotion that always ended perfectly, though it was always intimate and passionate. But with that passion came new obstacles and problems for themselves and the people surrounding them to work out. HATE Hate played a pivotal role in the play of Romeo and Juliet. There has always been hate between the two conflicting houses of Capulet’s and Montague’s, though there is not much reasoning as to why there is such a loathing of each house. The long feud of the opposing houses or fights between individuals such as Romeo and tybalt are some examples of where hate is shown among the play. ‘Two households, both alike in dignity. In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny. Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes. A pair of star crossed lovers take their life. Whose misadventure piteous overthrows, do with their death bury their parents strife. ‘From the beginning of the play, the prologue introduced an idea of how love and hate were some of the major themes. This hatred that has been created is what leads on to create the tension and conflict throughout the play. FATE These......

Loyalty and Rebellion in 1984

...Loyalty and Rebellion in 1984 Loyalty and Rebellion are the root of nearly every civil war ever fought. The two opposites rival each other as one side remains loyal to the governing power, and the other side rebels against the loyalist ways until all out war is fought. George Orwell's incredible novel, 1984, exemplifies these two ideas but in a slightly different light. In the book, Winston Smith and his lover Julia come together as two rebels against the overbearing Party that ultimately leads to their emotional destruction. In the throes of their love they profess their undying loyalty to each other, bringing the wrath of the Party down on them. By tying their loyalties to somewhere other than the party, Winston and Julia rebel against the party. Loyalty is Power. In 1984 the only goal of the Party is to have complete, absolute, pure power. O’Brien explains this to Winston saying, “The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power... Power is not a means, it is an end” (Orwell 263). He later explains that the Party's total domination will create a world of fear and torture, “There will be no loyalty, except loyalty towards the Party. There will be no love, except the love of Big Brother” (Orwell 267). In this way, O’Brien shows that loyalty to anyone else would mean a divergence from the power of the party, a rebellion.......

The Cuckoos Nest

...experiment to determine whether they were insane or abnormal. Unfortunately they were labeled schizophrenics in remission, unable to remove this title. These people were unsure of the rules; for instance, not knowing how long their visit was going to be, to act accordingly to their environment or remain absolutely different from their peers. Unlike the movie “One flew over the cuckoo’s nest,” people couldn’t leave on their own terms. However, in the movie, there were test individuals who would come and go as they please, and attend group therapy. These people had to adjust to a set schedule, try to fit in, prove their normality or insanity. What is insane or abnormal? Either act as a violation of societal norms or an irrational hatred, and contempt for someone. Many people will discount someone as “insane or abnormal,” if they simply do not agree with what the other person thinks or believes. To get a better understanding of what is, and what is not insane or abnormal, one has to consider many different aspects of life. Being insane or abnormal is usually defined as a person’s ability to think and act rationally. If a person has the ability to understand the difference of what’s right and wrong, then it is considered rational thinking. However, one must ask a question; by whose standard can one define what’s right or wrong? Is it the rules and regulations developed in the beginning of a culture; then, when a child grows older he or she develops the right and wrongs......

The Norms and Values in Verona in Romeo and Juliet

...Explore the presentation of norms and values within Verona During this essay I will focus on how society at the time had an impact on Romeo and Juliet’s relationship. I will explore how the norms and values within institutions in Verona such as ‘the family’ and ‘the church’ played a role the couple’s fate. A theme throughout the play was love. All the violence and hatred was a result of Romeo and Juliet’s unexpected relationship. The prologue was a sonnet; Shakespeare used the sonnet to remind the audience of romance. Lot’s of love poems at the time were in sonnet form. He was reminding the audience that ultimately what causes all the violence and betrayal is love. Religion and the Church had a massive impact and held a great power over people during the 16th Century. In some ways religion was more powerful than the law. When Romeo and Juliet first met they fell madly in love, ‘My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough tough with a tender kiss’. So to live by the moral rules set by the church they had to marry. Friar Lawrence’s role in the church gave him a lot of power and earned him a lot of respect and so the couple were over joyed when he agreed to wed them in the church ‘In one respect I’ll they assist be; For this alliance may so happy prove, to turn your households’ rancour to pure love.’ Religion is a powerful force within the play as a whole. During the 16th century people couldn’t live together before marriage and divorce was......

Hatred Within the Samoan Lines

... My opinion upon life amongst myself and the people of Samoa, is that we are searching for greater and new meanings or purposes to our lives in America and forgetting the true reason why we are considered the HAPPY people of Polynesia & honestly, the Samoan people are farrrrrrr from happy. Hatred and darkness has been planted in many hearts, and so I considered the heart of Polynesia to be one COLD HEART. Born and raised in America, I've come to believe that my heritage is one unique and rich culture. Greatness has shined upon us in many ways. The respect of our older generations and our culture as one has been our number one flawless greatness, we have also given men and women to the most powerful military known to mankind on earth to fight for our rights and freedom that was given to us (we never earned any rights or freedom in America), many have succeeded in the National Football League, many have succeeded in the line of education, and the list can further move on but we cannont sit, stand, walk, run, jog, fly or even cry about what we deserve without shining our weaknesses. I've grown to learn the darkness of the Samoan people. The darkness of which I speak of is HATRED! Yes we, HATE, and when we HATE, we HATE! Samoans living in America, Samoa, Europe, New Zealand, or any other place that is named, will show you guaranteed, more than one face. We live in our precious society forgetting what made us.
