Answered by admin AT 15/01/2020 - 03:08 AM

Tybalt is considered hot-tempered because he is always looking for ways to start a fight.
Take when Romeo arrives at the Capulet feast for example. Lord Capulet told Tybalt to let Romeo stay, as he was doing nothing to offend the family, but  Tybalt did not want that and sought to fight Romeo for basically trespassing. That is why Tybalt is considered hot-tempered.

Explain Marcus' current stage of identity development. As a reminder, the different stages of identity development are:. Identity Diffusion occurs when an adolescent does not make a commitment to any particular roles, values, or goals. Identity Foreclosure occurs when someone makes a commitment without considering other possibilities. Identity Moratorium occurs when an individual is in the midst of a crisis over a particular role or value and tries out alternatives in order to make a commitment.

Identity Diffusion. He has yet to make a choice to be against them yet. He merely does not agree with their actions. He has no allegiances to either side of the issue.

I would maybe say Moratorium if he is *currently* in a crisis over some decision (ie the relationship with the government). However, not sure how he is trying out alternatives at this point.

Reread the nightmare scene near the end of The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail and describe the main characters and primary events in Henry’s nightmare (pp. 92–96). Also, discuss this scene in particular, and the play in general, as a work of protest against war itself. Do you recognize parallels or discrepancies between the war depicted in this drama and any other war(s) in American history? If so, identify these similarities or differences and discuss how the message of protest in this play can be applied to those wars.

I think that the nightmare scene near at the end of the drama speaks to the idea that war is something that demands moral and active opposition should one feel it. Thoreau feels that the war is unjust. Yet, his nightmare is the result of inaction. The nightmare scene is one in which Thoreau's objection to war is evident. but the lack of action has enabled the machine of war to take over. It renders Thoreau's own voice as ineffective. This is why the ending of the drama has him leaving Walden in the hope of taking a more active and visible role against the nature of war. It is here where the drama speaks about the idea of how one must actively resist war, if they feel compelled to do so. If individuals authentically believe that war is wrong, they simply cannot be passive if they wish to change things. Thoreau's ending is one in which he speaks to the idea of bridging theory and reality. The theoretical principles of opposition to war must be matched to a reality in which individuals actively resist war. This becomes vitally important in both Thoreau's characterization in the drama and the statement being made about the condition of war.
