Moliere in Tartuffe and Voltaire in Candide write to criticize the religious hypocrisy of the time. Moliere satirizes religion through Tartuffe’s character in his play Tartuffe, performed in 1664. In Voltaire’s Candide there is an emphasis on the exploitation of women and the church. Moliere and Voltaire create these to exaggerate religious fanatics in order to express their anticlericalism. Moliere, in his play Tartuffe, portrays religious hypocrisy through Tartuffe the hypocrite.
Mozart, however, changed the mold. He incorporated an emotional side into his works and emphasized music based off of sound, notes, tone, and pitch as a form of art outside of religion (Brown 55). Music became more broad and open to all. In addition, Mozart had extraordinary performance skills thus, leading to his honor as an embodiment of classical movement (53). “Despite Mozart’s uncouthness and immaturity, he produced one work after another that seemed divinely sponsored as they transcended his own personality.
Montresor first manipulated Fortunato when he met him at the carnival. At the carnival he informs Fortunato that he has a pipe of Amontillado, and he has his doubts. Then, using reverse psychology, he says he can see that Fortunato is engaged in something, and he will turn to Luchresi for connoisseur services. This makes Fortunato’s desire to taste the wine even deeper. Fortunato refuses and insists he taste the wine, completing step one in Montresor’s master plan.
Showing that Montresor wants to punish with reason to get justice from Fortunato. The evidence from these stories shows the anger and boredom of these 2 characters in their situation. Zaroff hunted and let his prey know he was going to hunt them. The outcome of Zaroff is different than Montresor not only did Montresor and Zaroff's pray die, Zaroff died in the end, unlike Montressor who explained what he had done to change his prey Fortunato's fate. Also unlike Zaroff's prey, Montresor's prey Fortunato didn't know Montresor had planned to kill
Morvillo, Ms. Stewart’s attorney, argued that the defendants actions were not incorrect, stating, “Think that through, ladies and gentlemen. If you were on that plane, and somebody tells you somebody else is selling his stock, would you have thought you couldn’t sell the stock because they told you somebody else is selling?” Here, Morvillo appeals to the jurors’ sense of what a rational person would do in the situation of Ms. Stewart. Additionally, if Ms. Stewart had no reason to believe her actions were unjust, she would not engage in misleading investigators. Furthermore, Mr. Morvillo stated, “There will be no direct evidence introduced by the government that Martha Stewart conspired to obstruct anything. No witness will appear in this courtroom during the trial to say, ‘Martha told me to do something unlawful.”’ Here, the defendant’s attorney outlines the notion that Stewart did not knowingly attempt to engage in wrongdoing.
Montresor claims that Fortunato has caused him a “thousand injuries” (Poe) and that he would have his revenge. Some people believe the rationalization for his revenge is greatly out of proportion and that he went far beyond any logical thinking. Although there is plenty of evidence to support this claim, there are those who believe otherwise. In Graham St. John Scott’s review, he ties the story and the Montresor’s actions with the religion of Calvinism. In Calvinism, one of their principles is that “who was as much glorified in the proclamation of his justice as he was in the revelation of his love; and who could even mock those whom his justice condemned.” (St. John Scott).
Juan, with numerous failed attempts in getting his family to safety, once lost his patience with God crying, “What’s wrong with You? I thought we had a deal!” (137). As the chapter progresses, Juan suddenly experiences religious inspiration, and “instead of feeling abandoned by God, he felt close to Him” (138) showing how frustration generates a stronger connection between man and God. In addition, Doña Margarita teaches Salvador to avoid frustration by using the power of God “for this is God’s great plan, that people rise up beyond their personal hatreds” (471). Doña Margarita says that once everyone “recognize we are all the children of God,” (471) it will lead to happiness because she believed that God is the almighty figure that has the ability to enlighten the world.
Le Nozze di Figaro, by Wolfgang-Amadeus Mozart, is one of the most cherished works in opera history. This opera concerns many themes such as social class, some resonance of the French Revolution, and many other 18th-century concerns. Many people find that at its essence, this opera is about what it means to love somebody, or what it means to love someone who doesn’t love you. It’s about the human condition; human emotions and aspirations have not changed, and these situations are ones that most people can connect with. The music also speaks so directly to the audience that you connect immediately.
In this Sedaris shows us his moxie. He writes, “I suppose I could have gotten by with less, but I was determined to create some sort of an identity for myself .” This and his reaction to the accusation of laziness indicates that the author may have been contemplating giving up on his goals. At this point, the audience is wondering why he is enduring this hardship. But, by writing this he is demonstrating his integrity and commitment to learning the language. It leaves the feeling that he is focusing more on his target than the obstacles that lie in front of him.
