Тема: ESSAY! i need examples of Irony in ronald dahl's story "The lamb to the slaughter"?

As the evening wore on, I ran into a colleague who held a senior position in the White House. She has two sons exactly my sons’ ages, but she had chosen to move them from California to D.C. when she got her job, which meant her husband commuted back to California regularly. I told her how difficult I was finding it to be away from my son when he clearly needed me. Then I said, “When this is over, I’m going to write an op-ed titled ‘Women Can’t Have It All.’”

I still strongly believe that women can “have it all” (and that men can too). I believe that we can “have it all at the same time.” But not today, not with the way America’s economy and society are currently structured. My experiences over the past three years have forced me to confront a number of uncomfortable facts that need to be widely acknowledged—and quickly changed.


Bitches gone extend my summer cuz this shit is the only break I got that doesnt contains a fucking essay or a book to read.

Well it depends on the kind of sequel wanted. Is it supposed to follow this story, or be a different story with a similar theme? If it follows this story, let s assume that he was leaving her because he was seeing someone else. It s not stated, but we can assume it for a sequel. I would probably make the main character the woman that he was seeing. She believes the wife did it and sets off to prove it. If however, the sequel follows a theme, then its kind of a tongue in cheek story about a leg of lamb. Especially at the end when they re eating it and talking about the murder weapon. Find another item that you could use in that manner for a new story with new characters :)

In order to understand why it is not cruel you have to accept a number of premises. The first of which is that the Torah prohibits cruelty to animals - it is called Tsar baalei chayim. [The issue of tsar baalei chaim (animal s distress) expresses itself in mitzvos and halachos. If we find a pack animal struggling with its load, we have a mitzvah to unload it (Shemos 23:5). The Sefer HaChinuch explains that this teaches us compassion. The Rambam (Hilchos Rotzeach13:13) adds that one of the reasons is tsar baalei chaim. Certain melachos may be performed on Shabbos because of tsar baalei chaim (Rambam Hilchos Shabbos 21:9,10. Orach Chaim 305:20). An animal s pain and suffering is something that we must be concerned about.] The second is that there is a Divine authority that gave permission to eat meat - before Noah it was prohibited - and prescribed in what manner that permission is granted. Thirdly, just as you do not want to have the sensibilities of others thrust upon you, so to must you accept that not everyone has the same feelings as you. If you find it offensive then do not watch. However if my beliefs are that this is a non-cruel method of slaughter and it is part of the teachings of my religion not to be cruel to animals, then leave it alone.

My copy of The Aleph has Borges"s Autobiographical Essay, a very enlightening piece.

Charles Lamb (10 February 1775 – 27 December 1834) was an English essayist , poet , and antiquarian , best known for his Essays of Elia and for the children's book Tales from Shakespeare , co-authored with his sister, Mary Lamb (1764–1847).

Friends with such literary luminaries as Samuel Taylor Coleridge , William Wordsworth , and William Hazlitt , Lamb was at the center of a major literary circle in England. He has been referred to by E. V. Lucas , his principal biographer, as "the most lovable figure in English literature". [1]


I read a really incredible academic essay regarding Haunted and The Decameron-- a frame narrative from 14th century. Enjoy!
