  • Hope Of Freedom
    925 words
    Lord Byron's poetic work "The Prisoner of Chillon" tells the struggle between a person's ending their suffering and accepting it rather than holding on to the hope of freedom. The author uses symbols to represent the immediate end of suffering, acceptance of defeat, and succumbing to torture in competition with hope, strength, and faith in eventual freedom.

  • Carter And The Prison Warden
    366 words
    The statement made by Rubin "Hurricane " Carter, "Hate got me into this place, love got me out". The statement means that throughout his term in prison he changed as a person and also a human being. As he arrived in prison he was what you call a bad ass and a rebel.

The Warden told Carter to put on the standard uniform for him to be identified in prison and Carter being the stubborn man he was at the time refused and was sente...
