Revenge Essay When I was younger I had the desire to win, I couldn't stand losing; it was the worst feeling a young, immature 11 yr old could ever feel. So when St Mary's Primary School won the Armando cup my friends and I were going through a period of torment. The only way to resolve this was by getting revenge on St Mary's. Robert Owen Memorial Primary School versus St Mary's Primary School was the clash that had earned a spot in the Armando cup final. Everybody in Lanark knew that this was the biggest rivalry in the district. My school, Robert Owen Memorial Primary, was the best team in the district; we were always winning something. As 11 yr olds do we got ahead of ourselves and thought that we were the best team, we thought St Mary's had no chance well we were in for a big shock. Before the game I was feeling really confident, and I wasn't the only one. At half time the scoreboard read R.O.M.P 0-1 St Mary's this was the biggest cup in the district and to add to the pressure we were down one-nil. ...read more.


We had just lost the cup final to St Mary's. I felt like this as I'm the worst loser on the planet. But wait until you hear what we did to them ;). My friends and I thought it would be funny to play a practical joke on St Mary's so we then decided that we needed to plan our act of revenge. That night we went to our den. Our den was a place we hung out when we needed to cool own but it was also the place where we planned our revenge. Our first idea was that when St Mary's paraded their trophy on Lannimer's day we would burst their tyres on the St Mary's float by shooting them with airguns. Then we thought: no, too malicious. I thought that this would be one of our great ideas we will never carry out I thought we would never get our revenge. But one of my more subtle friends called Ryan came up with the idea that we could get a picture of the St Mary's captain and the R.O.M.P strip and put the captains' face on our strip. ...read more.


But all this over a game of football. One good thing about beating up the St Mary's football team was that when they paraded the trophy they all had black eyes and broken noses so they looked stupid. But not as stupid as we all felt. We had just beat up our friends because they beat us at football oh well you can't win them all. But after I took a second look at them I notice they were looking really groggy and that took all the pain from the inside away. Shame it didn't help my fists. Beating up St Mary's taught me a lesson. The lesson was to avoid this next year we needed to practise our penalties. In the end learning that a good old fashioned beating did the trick wasn't very good steeping stones for the future. After this experience I knew that I needed to tame the lion roaring inside of me. And if you were to ask the St Mary's captain I think he would agree. My dad found out about this and gave me an earful the lesson I learned from that was ...ehhh ... Jonathan Paterson ...read more.

    Hamlet - It's hard to define what revenge actually is.

    If he loved her, then he would, but he just says '(Aside) it is the poisoned cup. It is too late' I think that Shakespeare just used Claudius here to convey information to the audience so in fact he shouldn't have said anything which shows that he is even more heartless than we would originally think.

    This only angers Hamlet further, until he explains his feelings of anger and despair to the audience in his soliloquy. The soliloquy starts by using imagery to describe Hamlet's feelings towards the situation. Language such as "flat and unprofitable" is used when describing Hamlet's world, telling the audience that he feels hopeless and in despair.
