Lear contemplates the miserable state of Edgar (disguised as Tom) whose poverty and nakedness reflect how gods are cruel and unjust to them. Again he asks heavens to be more just with them: "…O, I have ta 'en Too little care of this! Take physic, pomp, Expose thyself to feel what wretches feel, That thou mayst shake the superflux to them, And show the heavens more just." (III.vi.32-41). In fact, King Lear did not really think about the plight of homelessness.
According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of obsolete is no longer in use or no longer useful often referred as old fashioned. The term obsolete happens to be misunderstood when it comes certain given situations especially when it comes to deciding whether or not a person will still be a use in society. In the episode “The Obsolete Man”, directed by Rod Serling, gave life to a completely different dimension where its state’s government was an example of totalitarian and fails to recognize the rights of man, acknowledge the worth and dignity of man altogether. The director does an excellent job of utilizing rhetorical devices such as pathos, ethos, and logos to create a window effect to give his audience of what their future could be.
However, the director ruins this myth, he shows us that Kane is not the perfect combination of what we want to call “the American,” but just one of the many, not a god, but a mere mortal, with his vulnerabilities and sorrows. To sum up, Orson Welles ruins social perception of the “successful person,” highlighting the difference between the weakness of person himself and his powerful image through the prism of public opinion. He shows us that there is nothing else, but wind and garbage behind the walls of the temple of the American

Firstly, Friar Lawrence is not a voice of reason in the play as he is a hypocritical person. For instance, the phrase “Two such opposèd kings encamp them still,//In man as well as herbs—grace and rude will.//And where the worser is predominant,//Full soon the canker death eats up that plant.” implies that Friar Lawrence believes that when unruly human desire is more prevailing in a person than divine virtue, the person would be destroyed by their own actions. The phrase “rude will” could refer to a person’s selfish individual desires while “grace” could refer to god’s will or fate. This implies that when a person disregards fate and instead goes after his own selfish desires, he will destroy himself. However, the phrase “But come, young waverer, come, go with me,//In one respect I’ll thy assistant be,//For this alliance may//so happy prove//To turn your households ' rancor to pure love.” suggests that Friar Lawrence completely ignores his own advice when agreeing to marry Romeo and Juliet.
She couldn't possibly fully understand John's ethics, because they are directly adverse to each other, and Lenina's conditioning was too strong to overcome. Huxley effectively uses Lenina's contradictions in the end to continue the idea that ignorance can alter

In the same way he is an incomplete politician also. We cannot justify him as a complete human being rather he can be stated as a helpless king who has declined for his stubborn nature. He is neither a hero nor a villain rather he is a victim of his self-indulgence. (Bloom. 249-150) In Shakespeare 's view, Richard is a failure as a king not because he is immoral, nor because he is too sensitive and refined for the job, but because he misunderstands the nature of kingship.
The neoclassic period is described by William Harmon as follows “Deism was advancing, and the rule of reason resulted in a literature that was realistic, satirical, moral, correct, and affected strongly by politics” (Harmon 320). The experiences Frankenstein and the Creature endure are not close to being realistic or moral, and this shows the non- neoclassical approach of Mary Shelley. The creature shows his desire for friendship during his dialogue with the blind cottager, Mr. Delacey; “I am an unfortunate and deserted creature I look around and I have no relation or friend upon earth. These amiable people to whom I go have never seen me, and know little of me. I am full of fears; for if I fail there I am an outcast in the world forever” (Shelley 93).
