The princess had to decide whether to send the lover to the tiger or to the lady. The lover’s destiny was in the princess’s hands since she knew what was behind the doors. If the princess sent to the tiger, he would die and if she sent him to the lady, the lover would marry her. It was a tough decision because she hated the lady, she wanted to have a semi barbaric futurity with the lover but at the same time, she doesn’t want to see the horror of the tiger death and she wants to legitimize their love. The princess sent the lover to the tiger because of semibarbaric futurity, she dislikes the lady and she is semibarbaric. To begin with, she would send her to the tiger because she wants to see him in the semibarbaric futurity. The princess lost the lover because either way if he picks the tiger or the lady, the princess won’t have him anymore unless the lover could wait for the princess in the heavens until she dies. “Would it not be better for him to die at once, and go to wait for her in the blessed regions of semibarbaric futurity?” (Stockton, 9). Based on this, the princess has a religious belief so she believes they will be reunited in the heaven. Even if they can’t be together in reality, at least there is a chance for them to be together in the heavens. Secondly, the princess hates the lady, so she would send the lover to the tiger. The princess would not want the lover to be married to the lady. “It was one of the fairest and selected as the reward of the accused youth, should be he proved innocent of the crime of aspiring to one so far above him; and the princess hated her.” (Stockton, 7). The princess is jealous of the lady because she is more beautiful than her, She is also afraid that there might be something going on between the lady and the lover. “Often had she seen, or imagined that she had seen, this fair creature throwing glances of admiration upon the person of her lover, and sometimes she thought these glances were perceived and even returned.” (Stockton, 7). The princess thinks the lady is trying to steal the lover from the princess which makes the princess hate her even more. The princess would do anything to get the lover away from the lady. Lastly, the princess herself is semibarbaric making her more likely to send the lover to the tiger. The princess bribed and threatened people who were associated with the cages to find out the
“The Lady, or the Tiger?” Final
In Frank Stockton's "The Lady, or the Tiger?" a half-barbaric king conceived a way of exercising justice on offenders against his rule. He placed his suspects in an arena and had him choose to open one of either of two doors that would open into the arena. Behind one of the identical doors lurked a ferocious tiger that would leap out and devour the accused. But behind the other door awaited a lovely maid who would, come forth and be married at once. All of this…

How Social Networking Changes Friendships
In an increasingly connected world, most people have an account on at least one social networking platform, and many people use social networking as their primary means of communication with friends and family. Most of us are aware that social networking poses some dicey questions in romantic relationships—whether to “friend” exes, whether to share private conversations with partners, what constitutes flirting, how much information about a relationship is…
I am enlightened, sickened and horrified by the white tiger information I just read for this assignment. The whole time reading I kept saying to myself, “I am not going to read any further.” Luckily, as I continued, I realized there were no new gory details provided. I guess it is easy to surmise that I had no idea of the treatment, lineage, or genetics of the white tiger. HOW AWFUL! I just told my neighbor that people who come into this area to drop off and abandon their pets should be shot. There…
Tigers are considered to be one of the most beautiful animals the world has ever seen. They’re graceful, ferocious when needed and recognized as one of the most powerful of all land mammals. Not the biggest in stature, but tigers are fearless. Willing to make any sacrifice and willing to conquer any obstacle it must. I don’t consider myself to be the most beautiful or the most ferocious. I don’t even consider myself graceful. But tiger’s and I, we have common characteristics. We are both, for lack…
The Battle Hymn of Tiger Mother
Is this a story of how Chinese parents are better at raising kids than Western ones? Is this a story of how a mother is humbled by a thirteen-year-old? But instead, it’s about a bitter clash of cultures and a fleeting taste of glory. This is a warm story about a mother, two daughter, and two dogs.
Why was the book named as The Battle Hymn of Tiger Mother? Instead of describing the cruelty or some other bad personalities, The Tiger is the symbol of strength and power…
