    This doctor, Dr. Smith, was increasingly suspicious, as he knew that it was impossible for such an antidote to exist. Just as Charles and Mary were skilled impostors, Dr. Smith was well renowned and extremely knowledgeable in the field of medicine (analogy). He planned to confront and expose the couple’s scheme in Kingsville. Dr. Smith approached the couple, pretending to be a commoner, and asked them several questions about their antidote, including its ingredients and its benefits. Unsatisfied with the answers he received, Dr. Smith decided to buy a vial of the potion himself and analyze its contents. Upon opening the vial, he was revulsed by the potion’s effluvium, yet he proceeded to drink the vial’s contents. Dr. Smith was shocked, when he was able to identify the taste of certain herbs in the antidote. He immediately revealed his true identity as a doctor and accused Charles and Mary of falsely selling a cure, which consisted of nothing but foul-smelling herbs. Because of his truculent nature, Charles began to argue with the doctor. However, when Dr. Smith threatened to have Charles and Mary arrested, the couple showed contrite for their actions and apologized to both the doctor and the townspeople. Furthermore, they returned the money they had earned from their scheme and were forced to, once again, return to their lives…

    The main interest of the work is in a character, Matt, whose son has just been murdered, and his conflict with the concept of revenge. Throughout the story Matt makes frequent mentions to his family that he wants to and should kill his son’s murderer but is just as frequently disturbed and uncertain at this notion. Matt is never described to the reader as a violent or murderous person. The story even mentions that he was a caring and concerned father by stating that “He had always been a fearful father: when his children were young, at the start of the summer he thought of them drowning in a pond or the sea, and he was relieved when he would come home in the evenings and they were there” (92). Matt is angry with himself because he feels he should have been able to protect his son, but was not able to, and “he lost Frank in a way no father expected to lose his son, and he felt that all the fears he had borne while they were growing up, and all the grief he had been afraid of, had backed up like a huge wave and struck him on the beach and swept him out to sea.” (94). Frank, Matt’s son, was also previously beaten by Richard Strout, the man who would later murder him for “making it” with Richard’s wife. Frank’s battery was described as “Before ten o’ clock one night Frank came home; he had driven to the hospital first and he walked into the living room with stitches over his right eye and both lips bright and swollen” (91). Matt has such a burden put on him with the death of his son, and the magnitude of that event causes him not being able to think about “any of the small pleasures he had earned, as he had earned what was now…

    The main character is a man beaten down by his circumstances. His last hope was to win the Bingo Game (247). He is in a situation where no matter what he does he is likely to fail, more so because he is black and thus, people have a sort of hate for him after only seeing him (247-248). I understand that he is facing a lot of injustices and that Laura’s situation makes him feel like less of a man. This is because he is unable to help her, to protect her. She is near death and he doesn’t have the money to take her to a doctor (246). Thus, when he finally has the button in his hangs, he has an episode, hallucinates and momentarily goes crazy (249). I understand that there were a lot of injustices in those times and that, more so because he was black, he couldn’t do anything about them. This, in a way, makes sense when you read that the policemen kept dragging him away even after he won, but it is horribly unfair either…

    Slavery might end with the signing of a piece of paper, but ending racism is something different entirely. Growing up in the south as a black man surrounded by passive racism and backhanded comments, is a disastrous force to constantly push on a developing mind. “Battle Royal” is about a young black man following in what he thought was his grandfather’s footsteps.

    Most people rely on the security and care of others to provide for their loved ones when they put them in a nursing home. What they don’t realize is how much neglect goes on to the people they care most about. Residents are at risk of being abused by their caretakers but they are also at risk of being restrained, which may lead to a form of abuse. At Southwestern Nursing Home I have witnessed forms of neglect and abuse. Nursing homes are meant to be a place for security for the elderly to be cared for in their golden years, and it has become an unpleasant experience for senior citizens being subjected to acts of abuse and neglect.…

    He was a high society man and the envy of many of the townspeople. He is characterized in a way that makes him appear to be almost god-like. He “glittered when he walked” and yet when he spoke he seemed humble and genuine. He was “richer than a king” and “schooled in every grace.” He was the man everyone knew and wished they could be. The way he presented himself to the town was obviously quite different from his true feelings because his fate was sealed after he put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger. It is ironic that the man everyone wanted to be was unhappy enough to commit suicide. He presented himself in such a manner that o one would have even suspected the depression he was masking so…
