He used logos in “Father, gods instill good sense in men,” this says that all people have some sort of logics or reasoning for their actions and that what Antigone did was not wrong. He uses this to make Creon realize Haimon’s opinion and side of the situation. Haimon is wise for his age and shows his father Creon, that he can have his father change his mind and plan for Antigones death. Haimon’s speech to his father had an impact on the way things turned out because of the logos technique displayed by him. Another logos method is when he lets his father know that “This is no city which belongs to one man.” It’s true because the city may get upset if Creon tries to make all decisions without discussing it with others.
French designer Philippe Starck once claims: “I like to open the doors to people’s brain.” Nathaniel Hawthorne 's short story “The Minister’s Black Veil” reflects this principle in which the author advertently creates ambiguities and opens the possibilities of interpretation to the readers. Nathaniel Hawthorne employs commonplace symbols to present the ambiguity of sin and secrecy through a psychological lens in “The Minister’s Black Veil”. This short story also reflected the principle of Puritanism as well, such as the idea of manifest destiny represented by Mr. Hooper in the story. Nathaniel Hawthorne was born in Salem, Massachusetts. It is also worth to notice that John Hawthorne, one of the Salem Witch Trial Judges, was his great-grandfather (Concise Dictionary of American Literary Biography).
This empowering of Henry by Shakespeare is consistent and constant in the prologue, where the Chorus asks the audience to forgive “this unworthy scaffold” for bringing “forth / So great an object.” This hyperbolic allusion towards the King once more raises the King above common people, beckoning the audience, both contemporary and of the contextual era to know the power and strength Henry held. While profoundly restrictive in the variety of voices projected, Shakespeare’s Henry V provides a window into the values and beliefs of the time, especially those central to leadership, war and royalty as a concept. By guiding the easily malleable beliefs and imaginations of the common
Deemed an outcast by society because of his actions, Hamlet is sent by Claudius on a ship headed for England. This physical separation, from the surroundings he grew up with, represents Hamlet’s victory over society and his ability to now act according to his own will. However, instead of beginning a life anew, Hamlet decides to return to Denmark (against the wishes of Claudius). This unforeseen act can be explained as Hamlet tells Horatio on his way home, “There’s a divinity that shapes our ends, Rough-hew them how we will” (5.2 11-12). The word ‘divinity’ connotes a godly presence and demonstrates Hamlet’s embrace of his destiny.
As Candide is on his adventure he is enlightened by the world around him. Oliver Wendall Homes, once said, “a moment 's insight is sometimes worth a life 's experience.” In the beginning of the book, Voltaire describes Candide as, “ a young man whom nature had endowed with the gentlest of characters” (Voltaire 1). In Candide, Candide character’s evolves after he was demanded to leave the castle of the Lord Baron of Thunder-ten-tronckh because he kissed the Lady Baroness, Cunégonde.

Discovery of such history had a profound impact on Equality such as when he read the word “I”. It is through man’s writing in which Equality came to understand “the blessed thing which (he) had called (his) curse” (98). This writing had such a positive impact on Equality that he decided to “write the first chapter of new history of man” so that it would be eternal (101). It is through his writing, that Prometheus will be remembered not as a number, but as a hero who vanquishes collectivism. His eternal message cautions the reader of the dangers of an irrational society so that someday man will think twice before chaining himself to the word

Experiences which allow an individual to discover can uncover what is concealed and for perceptions to be challenged and changed. This concept is explored in William Shakespeare’s play The Tempest and Thomas Buchanan Read’s poem Church’s “Heart of the Andes” in different ways. The courtiers from The Tempest are forcibly displaced into Prospero’s magical island which reflects the context of Age of Exploration. Church’s “Heart of the Andes” similarly portray the same idea of western explorers discovering the New World. The new ideas and changed values that result from the discovery can be seen in Shakespeare’s play as Prospero changes his character and attitude as he learns about forgiveness and mercy.
Throughout the play, Othello is unaware of any racism or hatred toward him. Othello says "my parts my title, and my perfect soul shall manifest me rightly." (Act 1; Scene 2; Line 31-32).

Later in the play Lodovico, a messenger and a kinsmen to Brabanzio, comes to Othello to announce that Othello has been replaced by Cassio.
In the beginning of the book Macbeth. Macbeth is selfless, and truly devoted to benefiting the people. Macbeth saves the country, and the king admires him. Duncan states “ No more that thane of Cawdor shall deceive our bosom interest, go pronounce his present death, and with his former title greet Macbeth” This suggests that Duncan admires the great deeds of Macbeth. He admires Macbeth because of the great things he has done to save the country, Duncan gives Macbeth the Cawdor title.
---------------------------------------------------------------- Caliban’s telling soliloquy holds both explicit and implicit value that serves to reinforce, The Tempest’s, theme while adding to the overall meaning of the play. Explicitly, Caliban used vivid language to -------- the tortures Prospero had inflicted on him and how he wished for Prospero’s slow transformation into that of a disease. Implicitly, the infliction of pain that Caliban experienced mirrored the abuse that the first nations peoples endured during their interactions with Europeans. From Caliban’s soliloquy, it’s evident that he was a symbol of the first nations peoples. This symbol served play about colonialism primarily because Prospero comes to Sycorax 's island, rules the land, and imposes his own culture on the people of the land.We can take Prospero as a representative of the Europeans who usurped the land of native Americans and enslaved them.
