Homework: Fairness and Justice
✨We have two values that are justice, that is the maintenance or administration of what is just especially by the impartial adjustment of conflicting claims or the assignment of merited rewards or punishments, and fairness is the quality of making judgments that are free from discrimination.
In the two poems we review the two values of “Justice” and “Fairness” but they are not totally explicit. Yet both of them talk about things such as life and humans, and that is a topic in which we can see these two values very frequently.
In “Psalm of Life” we can infere that amongst all the characteristics that the author desires the reader to posess there is “justice” and “fairness” because those would be qualities that would fit perfectly the model that the author describes in the poem, a person who leaves good things to the people on the Earth, someone who resembles a hero in the war of life, or a really brave person, etc. Also I can see the value of justice in the message of this poem, the life is short and everything you do have consequences and you have to be responsable of it, be just, the poem deals with how meaning is created in one´s life.
In our second poem “The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls”, we know that the movement of the tides resembles all the cycles of nature, and life, and how us humans are only a part of it. The way we can see fairness and justice on this poem is that ife does not always seems very fair and just to us. Also for as much this poen has to say aboute the circle of life, it´s also a poem that has a lot to say abpur death.
Justice and fairness are very important values and the way these values are implied to the story are like in an abstract way, also these values are not the main points on this poems but they are slightly implicated in the message that the author wants us to infer so this is why I think that these values are implied on these poems. They are never explicitly mentioned but still take part into developing the message of the poems, even in the slightest way.
I feel like these two values are not very easy to see at first sight in the poems, but if we think about it more deeply, these are two essencial values in our life. ✨
