Task#7_ Crime and Punishment imitation

Crime and Punishment

“Beat me? How can you! Beat me-Lord! and even if she did beat me, what of it! Well, what of it! You know nothing, nothing…. She’s so unhappy; ah, how unhappy she is! And sick… She wants justice…She’s pure. She believes so much that there should be justice in everything, and she demands it… ….”

(pg.318) Sonja.

Regardless to what Sonja does for her livings, she is the character who is neat and calm about mostly everything. However, this quote shows her character bursting out for the first time, towards Rodya’s insult of her step mother. Although the readers all know that Katrina Ivanovna beats her regularly, Sonja is trying to defend her, and is reasoning with Katrina’s issue and personality. But because she is so angry and nervous, Dostoevsky intentionally put exclamation points, various ands, and ‘…’to express her emotion towards Rodya’s insult. These devices automatically put the readers in her shoes, and lead the readers to how Sonja is trying hard to love her and to protect her. Thus, the use of ” -Lord!” or “Ah,” from the first half not only show her offended feelings directly in her character, (especially of her religious character,) but also give real and humane tone of her voice.

“Die for the chocolate? How can you! Die for-Goodness! and even if she could die for it, what of it! Well, what of it! Boys know nothing, nothing… She’s so stressed; ah, how stressed she is! And starving… She wants satisfaction….She loves chocolate. She loves so much that there should be chocolate in everything, and she demands it…”

I tried to capture the moment where a girl defends another girl of the fact -the fact that every girl would want to deny it but possibly true- that girls could die for chocolate. Moreover, I intentionally used the word “Boys” to implant the angry tone when the opposite gender is stating with the stereotype, but without an effort trying to understand. Also, I used “hungry” and “satisfaction” to provide the just reasons for chocolate.

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow., and their Inequalities

Why do people hate Tuesdays and love Fridays? Can’t Tuesday ever be loved? Who determined Tuesday to be so miserable like this and Friday to be full of such joy? Isn’t it unfair? The whole thing started from the observation of this agony. Why do people love certain things for nothing and hate certain things as well? Who decides the fate of people like Tuesdays and Fridays? In my opinion, people nowadays- or from the far past where there is not even a record of that specific era- are too ignorant about the importance of yesterdays. Today gets the priority since it is The day to live, and The day you are breathing at the moment. Tomorrow is so loved of its potential and hope. But how about yesterdays? Some don’t even care, and mostly some treat this day with regret and say they mortified over the pain. Surprisingly, we are all being too ignorant on our yesterdays. Yes, to compare in inequalities, today and tomorrow definitely takes the priority. In matter of fact, these are the days where actual changes occur .However, that does not mean that priorities only deserve the attention. There has to be some sort of equal attention and observation on yesterdays, because yesterday made you, fit the latest piece of you yourself today. In “The Fog,” people would be able to experience the importance of yesterdays through the boy’s forecast ability on people around him.
