He goes on about how he is different when it comes to discipline compared to the iron fist of Sister Aloysius. He seems almost too focused on coming up with excuses for why he is abnormally close with Donald. His actions make him seem very skeptical about his intentions and actions in regards to Donald Muller. Father Flynn then goes and talks to Sister James separately to talk with her about the accusations. By talking to Sister James alone, Father Flynn not only broke the rules but also seems suspicious.
You don’t like it that he likes Frosty the Snowman. And you’re letting that convince you of something terrible, just terrible” (Shanely 35). One can see how Sister Aloysius’ overall hatred towards Father Flynn may have clouded her judgment on the matter. The reader can assume that Sister Aloysius may be the person at the school who has always tried to exploit others and find a reason for them to get fired. However, it can be argued that Father Flynn is guilty.
However, Iago is not the only one that is to take all the blame. Othello’s naive nature hindered him from seeking the truth of Desdemona and Cassio and finding out Iago had been lying the whole time. Iago may have been the cause of rumors, however Othello’s own doing ultimately caused him to suffer the consequences due to the fact that he did not communicate with his wife. He let a envious person control every aspect of his perception of his wife. He let a piece of fabric be the defining factor of whether or not his wife was faithful to him.
Brabantio implies that women put on an act and pretend to be trustworthy. Even a father thinks women act one way and are not what they seem. Then Brabantio, still enraged about the new marriage, continues to say, “Keep an eye on her, Moor. She lied to me, and she may lie to you”(1.3.5-6). This shows that Brabantio believes that Desdemona will continue to be deceiving.
Throughout John Patrick Shanley’s play Doubt, Sister Aloysius tries to expose the truth about how Father Flynn could be having an inappropriate relationship with Donald Muller. Sister Aloysius becomes aware of this possibly inappropriate relationship after Sister James tells Sister Aloysius that Father Flynn had a private meeting with Donald. Then, Sister Aloysius talks to many people to see if her speculations are true, and by doing that, she hopes that the truth will cause Father Flynn to leave St. Nicholas. After reading the play Doubt, I believe that Father Flynn is having an inappropriate relationship with Donald Muller because of Father Flynn’s behaviors and Sister Aloysius’ conversations with many
Brabantio views on Othello and Desdemona’s relationship were quite different from his daughters. “Look to her, Moor, if thou hast eyes to see: She has deceiv’d her father and may thee” (Shakespeare.1.3.289-290). Brabantio says this quote to Othello saying that she deceives her father by being with the Moor, so why wouldn’t she deceive him as well. Brabantio didn’t approve of the relationship because he is the Moor and this is racist. This is heartbreaking because he was friendly to Othello and welcoming him into his home until he finds out he was sleeping with his daughter.
John has the conscience of an honest man even though he has committed a severe sin, which he hides, adultery. Because of this his name is tainted, making the reader doubt the goodness in him. When Proctor reveals the truth in court, we are surprised because he has confessed knowing it will blacken his name, and he has done this in order to save his wife, Elizabeth Proctor. Because of this we are able to see that Proctor bears responsibility for what has occurred. However when he confesses, Abigail turns against him and accuses Proctor of being a witch.
Contrary to belief though, this quote was a way to set his “mousetrap” and force her to be in the background of his grand scheme. The audience must draw conclusions concerning their relationship because their love is not the main focus of the play and Hamlet acting insane is an inconvenience because it is hard to decipher what was sincere or madness. Shakespeare does not seem to have a high opinion of women, while writing Hamlet, considering how Hamlet holds deep bitterness toward his mother and Ophelia for not having a backbone and allowing themselves to be pawns in the game Claudius and he are playing. Saying this, Hamlet’s behavior towards Ophelia is crude, rough, and full of anger. Despite Hamlet’s harsh treatment towards Ophelia, he really did love her, but because she was not his main focus, the
Hamlet was giving his loyalty to Ophelia. If this continued it would 've ended badly for Hamlet because she was giving her loyalty to her father. Ophelia was trying to set Hamlet up because her father asked him to. “POLONIUS: […] (to OPHELIA) Read on this book That show of such an exercise may color Your loneliness.—We are oft to blame in this, 'Tis too much proved, that with devotion’s visage And pious action we do sugar o 'er The devil himself”( Act 3, Scene 1,44-52) (Shakespeare). Alternatively, King Hamlet lover was Queen Gertrude who was cheating on him during their marriage.
He becomes a liar by lying about having been to Narnia and causes conflict amongst his brother and sisters. Peter and Susan do not believe Lucy’s tales about Narnia. Seeing Edmund’s betrayal as a sin, Mühling writes “It is interesting that one consequence of sin is that the children’s relationships are affected (Peter and Lucy) even though they have not all come into contact with the Witch or evil” (Mühling 28). This shows that betrayal not only causes conflict between the betrayer and the persons betrayed, but also amongst the betrayed people. If Judas had a family, his family would had been affected by his betrayal
Telling someone that something that is theirs looks like a mess can create so much conflict, which is what happened, but Bryce chose to do it anyways. Page 127 shows the complete opposite. It shows Bryce telling Garrett that Juli’s uncle is retarted, and Garrett then makes fun of Juli and her family for being related to someone that has a disability. Bryce then feels himself getting angry at Garrett and feeling defensive over Juli and her family. This proves that Bryce has changed his feelings towards Juli, because in the beginning he was criticizing Juli and her family because of something small, like their yard.
In “A Good Man is Hard to Find” ,O’Connor displays The Misfit as a suspicious character. He is sneaky and cunning. In the scene where he talks to the family, he is not letting on what he is going to do, which displays a suspicious mood. For example, he says, “...but it would have been better for all of you, lady, if you hadn’t of reckernized me” (O’Connor 7). The grandmother is pleading for her life and asks if the Misfit will shoot her, he says, “I would hate to have to” (O’Connor 7) On the other hand, while David is spying on the Tomkeys, he thinks, “Because they had no TV, the Tomkeys were forced to talk during dinner.
“Why, then, had he come hither? Was it but the mockery of penitence? A mockery, indeed, but in which his soul trifled with itself. He had been driven higher by the impulse of that Remorse which dogged him everywhere” (Hawthorne 138) here dimmesdale can 't face the justice of what he has done wrong which is why the author called him a coward and is the reason why he kept his secrets because he is a coward to admit it to and face the consequences which is why later the guilt of keeping them eats him from the inside. Dimmesdale also kept his secrets to keep his reputation as the revered so the town won 't judge him.
He berates his wife for keeping such a cold and judgeful disposition, as if he is free of qualms. In fact, John was flirting with Abigail in the first act. John reprimands Elizabeth for playing God, when he does the same to the community. What makes John’s vicious and uncalled for assertion even more distasteful, is the fact that he says he should have “roared” Elizabeth down when she first accused him. Again, John seems to forget that he is the transgressor.
