2. Read the Excerpt below and answer the questions that follow. FIRST LAYER (bowing): Thank you, your honour. High court of justice, of all ties the ties of blood is strongest. Mother and child – is there a more intimate relationship? Can one tear a child from its mother? High court of justice, she has conceived it in the holy esctaties of love. She has carried it in her womb. She has fed it with her blood. She has borne it with pain. High court of justice, it has been observed that the wild tigress, robbed of her young, roams restless through the mountains, shrunk to a shadow. Nature herself….. AZDAK (interrupting, to Grusha): What’s your answer to all this and anything else that lawyer might have to say? GRUSHA: He’s mine. AZDKA: Is that all? I hope you can prove it. Why should I assign the child to you in any case? GRUSHA: I brought him up like the priest says “according to my best knowledge and conscience.” I always found him something to eat. Most of the he had a roof over his head. And I went to such trouble for him. I had expenses too. I didn’t look out for my own comfort. I brought the child up to be friendly with everyone, and from the beginning taught him to work. As well as he could, that is. He’s still very little. FIRST LAWYER Your honour, it is significant that the girl herself doesn’t claim any tie of blood between her and the child. AZDKA: The court takes note of that. FIRST LAWYER Thank you, your honour. And now permit a woman bowed in sorrow – who has already lost her husband and now has also to fear the loss of her child – to address a few words to you. The gracious Natella Abashwili is. GOVERNOR’S WIFE (quietly): A most cruel fate, sir, forces me to describe to you the tortures of a bereaved mother’s soul, the anxiety, the sleepless nights, the…… SECOND LAWYER (bursting out): It’s outrageous the way this woman is being treated! Her husband’s palace is closed to her! The revenue of her states is blocked, and she is cold-bloodedly told that it’s tied to the heir. She can’t thing without that child. She can’t even pay her lawyers! (To the FIRST LAWYER, Who desperate about this outburst, makes frantic gestures to keep him from speaking) Dear Illo Shuboladze, surely it can be divulged now that the Abashwili estates are at stake? FIRST LAWYER Please, Honoured Sandro Oboladze! We agreed…………(To AZDAK: ) Of course it is correct that the trial will also decide if our noble client can take over the Abashwili estates, which are rather extensive. I say “also” advisedly, for in the foreground stands the human tragedy of a mother, as Natella Abashwili very properly explained in the first words of her moving statement. Even if Michael Abashwili were not heir to the estates, he would still be the dearly beloved child of my client. AZDAK: Stop! The court is touched by the mention of estates. It’s a proof of human feeling. SECOND Thanks, Your Honour. Dear Illo Shuboladze, we can prove in any case that the womanLAWYER who took the child is not the child’s mother. Permit me to lay before the court the bare facts. High court of justice, by an unfortunate chain of circumstances, Michael Abashwili was left behind on the Easter Sunday while his mother was making her escape.

AZDAK: Listen! Am accused instigating war? Ridiculous! Am saying ridiculous! That enough? If not, have brought lawyers. Believe five hundred. (He points behind him, pretending to be surrounded by lawyers) requisition all available seats for lawyers! (The IRONSHIRTS laugh:the FAT PRINCE joins in). NEPHEW (to the IRONSHIRTS): You really wish me to try this case? I find it rather unusual from the taste angle, I mean. FIRST IRONSHIRT: Lets go! FAT PRINCE: (smiling): Let him have it, my little fox? NEPHEW: All right. People of Grusinia versus Grand Duke. Defendant, what have you got to say for yourself? AZDAK: Plenty. Naturally, have read war lost. Only started on the advice of patriots. Like Uncle Arsen Kazbeki. Call Uncle Arsen as witness. FAT PRINCE (to the IRONSHIRTS. Delightedly): what a madcap! NEPHEW: Motion rejected. One cannot be arraigned for declaring a war, which every ruler has to do once in a while, but only for running a war badly. AZDAK: Rubbish! Did not run it at all! Had it run! Had it run by Princes! Naturally, they messed it up. NEPHEW: Do you by any chance deny having been commander in chief? AZDAK: Not at all! Always was commander-in-chief. At birth shouted at wet nurse. Was trained drop turds in toilet, grew accustomed to command. Always commanded officials rob my cash box. Officers flog soldiers only on command. IRONSHIRTS (clapping): He’s good! Long live the Grand Duke! FAT PRINCE: Answer him according to the dignity of the law. Defendant, preserve the dignity of the law! AZDAK: Agreed. Command you proceed with trial! NEPHEW: It is not your place to command me. You claim that the Princes forced you to declare war. How can you claim then that they-er- “messed it up”. AZDAK: Did not send enough people. Embezzled funds. Sent sick horses. During attack, drinking in whorehouse. Call Uncle Arsen as witness. NEPHEW: are you making the outrageous suggestions that the Princes of this country did not fight? AZDAK: No. Prince fought. Fought for war contracts. FAT PRINCE: (jumping up): That’s too much! This man talks like a carpet weaver! AZDAK: Really? Told nothing but truth. FAT PRINCE: Hang him! Hang him! FIRST IRONSHIRT (pulling the PRINCE down): Keep quiet! Go on, excellency! NEPHEW: Quiet! Now render a verdict; you must be hanged! By the neck! Having lost war!AZDAK: Young man, seriously advise not fall publicly into jerky clipped speech. Cannot be watchdog if howl like wolf. Got it? If people realize Princes speak same language as Grand Duke, may hang Grand Duke and prince, huh? By the way, must overrule verdict. Reason? War lost, but not for Princes. Princes won their war. Got 3,863,000 piasters for horses not delivered, 8,240,000 piasters for food supplies not produced. Are therefore victors. War lost only for Grusinia, which is not present in this court.

English Assignment Writing ServiceBoth stories are about children learning lessons about life: · What lessons are learned by the narrators?· How are they similar and different?Grade Breakdown Per Post: o Post: 80%o Two Replies:20%o Total: 100% Both “Salvation” and “The distance to the moon” are about children learning tough life lessons. In “Salvation” the protagonist realizes somethings about adults and religion. As a child he was told that Jesus Christ would manifest before him and bring him to his grace. He quickly learned that religion is something more spiritual than physical. I imagine It was extremely hard being so young and learning such a complex truth. Another lesson he learned is that people lie, not just the adults but the kids too. His friend lied so he could be done with the whole moment and the adults never explained to him things correctly, they also lied by not explaining things correctly and leaving him in the dark. As he grew the child realized that some social interactions require a bit of faking to get thru them. In “The distance to the moon” the main character learned about love and how it can be both amazing and painful. He learned that the woman he loved so dearly would never reciprocate his feelings for her. The common lesson for both stories is disappointment. They were never taught that love and religion aren’t perfect. Although the stories share similar lessons the tone of the stories is completely different. In “Salvation” the tone is very tragic and dark, and it’s also in the real world. In “The distance to the moon” everything is in this beautiful fantasy world.
