Poe starts off by setting the tone of the environment. It is towards the end of the year and in a dreary part of the country. His arrival at the House of Usher is one that is reminiscent of an old horror movie. The way he describes it one could get lost in imagination about the nightmarish horrors that may be inside. In describing the house, Poe uses words such as sad, cold and sickening.
Although Roderigo is misled by Iago’s he still keeps his mental and emotional state normal with little doubt, until the end. Othello puts so much trust into Iago, claiming that he is “full of love and honesty” that he doubts his wife, and everyone that Iago says is suspicious. His mental state gets affected greatly and is even more inclined to believe in Iago, even promoting him to lieutenant. Iago reassures him even more pleading himself to Othello saying “I am your own
In William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet fall in love despite their familie’s feud. we all know their love ended with agony, but who is truly to blame for their death? They themselves, or the others around their grave? I believe that the blame of their deaths should be put onto the parents. Parents have always had a impact on their children.
It reveals you” (John Green 286). Peter explained that the death of his daughter exposed his worst self. This relates to the theme: death is a part of life, so we need to live our best lives each day because Peter’s daughter’s death was a part of his life, but it exposed and ruined him. In order for Hazel to live her best life she cannot give up because Gus is dead. Death and hardship is a part of being alive, so Hazel needs to be resilient through to keep grief from revealing her worst self.
But in Jim Carrey's life he persevered in order to save his life and his family. The story Susan B. Anthony Dares to Vote shows perseverance because Susan had never given up on her fight for women's rights to vote. For example, one day Susan dressed up as a man in order to vote because she knew that women couldn't vote. Even though she was a women, she dressed up as a man to show that she will never give up in what she believes in. This shows perseverance because she tried everything in order to get women to vote even though most of her ideas did not work.
The drama directed by David Frankel tells us a story about a father in a grief, who has lost his six-year-old daughter and struggles to be back to normal life. Since the death of his daughter he becomes deep depressed, does not react on real world and refuses to work. His creative ideas and a secret of the agency success were reaching people out through love, time and death. The tragedy has caused him to write letters to them. At the time the agency was about to fail, his colleagues decided to intercept the letters and hired actors to cast as Love(Keira Knightley),Time(Jacob Latimore) and Death(Helen Mirren) to talk to him.
Ismene is stuck in between choosing what is right and what is dishonoring/wrong; the right choice would be to follow the divine law, their gods law, or follow Creon’s law that goes against the gods’. Creon’s man law also proves that his tragic flaw was hubris; his excessive pride and belief that his power was unlimited caused a series of events that led to his tragic downfall. The theme of gender roles, especially the “place” of women, is very limited. “Burying and mourning their dead relatives gave women an opportunity to do something important for their families. It brought women to the fore and gave them a role to play” (67), this quote is proving that a Creon is limiting one of the few things women were allowed to at the time of their society, which was for Antigone to bury Polynices.
Love is something that requires communication, respect, and mutual admiration. Beatrice and Benedick had no issues when it came to communicating with each other, they just needed a little assistance when it came to the respect and mutual admiration. Claudio and Hero initially had mutual admiration and respect down, but no communication. As more people got involved, those two parts slipped away from them, resulting in chaos. But thankfully all problems were solved and the two ended the play holding all three keys to a successful relationship.
Moreover, there were people and even gods that believed in her. After Antigone died, Ismene thought that she died fighting against Creon and must get the same respectful burial just like their brother Polynices. Even gods believed in her that they sent their prophet Tiresias to warn Creon to change his thought. Sophocles’ Antigone is a very confusing play because you can’t be sure if the tragic hero is Antigone or Creon. There are some opinions about that the real tragic hero is Creon because he fits in the conditions.
The priest professionally illustrated the simplicity and vividness of telling a compelling story. I believe one of the weaknesses with this speech was his loss of informing the audience of his main points, this eventually lead him to go off on a tangent. A major strength was his delivery and memorability. The verbal and non-verbal messages complemented the speech smooth, opening the audience almost conversationally. My only suggestion is maintaining a balance within each segment.
