Jeffrey BoatengThis an essay that I had to write for Ap English it was based on the following quote by Teiresias in Antigone. Think: All men make mistakes, But a good man yields when he Knows his course is wrong, And repairs the evil: The only crime is pride.I had to write about weather this assertion was true based on examples from reading, observation, and personal experience. I have made little corrections to sentence structure, grammar, and other things to show people what an Ap Essay can be like, and still receive an eight out of nine. In Teiresias wise knowledge he basically says all people make mistakes, but the ones who don't correct them are those who have pride. Teiresias assertion is very valid and can be proved true. I have observed Teiresias assertion in plays, movies and my own personal life. Plays often show flaws of human nature such as pride. One play that does this is Julius Caesar by Shakespeare. In the play Ceasar's wife tell him not to go to the capital because of her premnission. Even though at first he appeal to the Ethos of his wife he is easily convinced to go by a person who plays on pride. Even though Caesar couldn't repair his mistake he still committed the crime of pride. This is what lured him into a trap. One can also argue he knew not to go, but when he heard Augustus say people would make fun of him he went anyway. This short coming of pride is also in the play MacBeth. MacBeth was told by three witches he would be king and he should fear a man not born of human. Originally MacBeth did not want to kill the king because he knew his intensions were wrong, but just like Tersias says crime is pride. His wife played on him being prideful to get him to kill the king. If MacBeth had done what he had promised to do and not killed the king he would of lived on happy. Instead his pride causes him great pain and devestation in the end. Play aren't the only place where pride causing pain is seen in movies also shows. One movie that shows pride being the characters downfall is the Lion King . In the Lion King Simba, the main...

"Waiting for the Rain" by Sheila Gordon. Not very well written, but I wrote it in the 7th Grade so forgive me :D

518 words - 2 pages people, because it is kind of slow moving, and has a pretty bad ending. However, despite these not so good traits, it really is well written, and does flow smoothly throughout the story. It shows a good look at apartheid, but it doesn't show exactly how horrible the apartheid really was. It almost seems like the book closes its eyes to the actual horrors of apartheid. And I'm sure there is a plethora of books out there that paint a better picture of apartheid. Waiting for the Rain has a good storyline, but it could have been carried through a little bit better. For these reasons I would not recommend Waiting for the Rain, by Sheila Gordon.
