Starting the year with a great Unit in English Literature class is basic. During Reputation, Justice, and Deceit, our first unit of the year, many formal and informal debates took place. As well as, the reading of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, a novel directly connected to these motifs. The one word I want to write about this time is reputation. This single theme is very present on our day to day lives.
Every single day we are aware of our reputation and our public appeal. For instance, today during a debate in the same class this assignment is for people were extremely cautioned about their words. The debate covered Legalization of Drugs. I’m positive that many students, and/or the teacher were eager to share personal experiences in order to prove their point; but did not because of the negative image that would’ve been reflected about themselves. By the way, drugs in this debate also included alcohol, tobacco, and any other medication.
The exact same way as in The Crucible we still are very conscient of our acts according to the codes of society. I am totally sure that if anyone, probably anywhere breaks this and goes mad about what other people think we could develop a truly free society.
