“Pathos” was used explicitly by grabbing the emotions and feeling of the audience by the unexpected spontaneous reaction of the fiancée ("Ethos, Pathos, and Logos"), showing her real mask, when she noticed that her relationship and marriage are subjected to danger. “Ethos” is achieved by relying on a divorced axial character, a friend of hers. The former dependence paves the audience mind for the fact that marriage, at that environment, ceases being a divorce when problems, related to misperceiving personalities, arise among couples. The author also accounted for the left-brain audience who are mainly interested in one-to-one events; consequently, “Logos”, as a persuasion mode, was used as a transition between Shalash’s knowing that her relationship with Fouad would be adversely affected and her spontaneous reaction, based on her character, of the unexpected visit. To sum up, The Other Face, by Salma Shallash, managed to conduct the message, triggered by the author’s exigency, through a theoretical writing model integrating both persuasion and original writing
The audience may understand the concept of love and romance flowing within the characters because it was to portrayed that way but the critics would argue the fact that some of the characters like Beatrice and Benedick were made to fall in love with each other through deception. As simple as the characters were, the situations arousing in the play became more complexed as scenes passed by. What led to the trouble and chaos in the play also led to the solution in the end, when Claudio and Don Pedro were deceived into thinking by Don John that Hero was unfaithful. That very same idea also solved the problem in the end when Leonato, Hero’s father, deceived Claudio by making him believe that she is dead and that it is his duty to clear Hero’s name by reading out on her tomb and marrying the said niece who looks just like Hero. Again the plotting against own is present where the said niece turns out to be Hero and she comes back to life again.
“ He’s honoring one with full funeral and treating the other one disgracefully! Etheocles,they say, has had his burial according to our customary rites, to win him honour with the dead below.” “ But where I could gain greater glory than setting my own brother in his grave? All those here would confirm this pleases them if their lips weren’t sealed by fear--being king.”

Elizabeth half ironically states that Mr. Darcy suffers from no defect. This interaction is a prime example of how both characters each still wear their pride and prejudices assumptions on their sleeves. Elizabeth's convection in herself causes Darcy to continue to view her in a different light. Elizabeth strives to maintain the independence of her mind, while other girls might have been at pains to humor Mr. Darcy and endorse whatever opinion he might have expressed. However, Elizabeth does not humor Darcy thus figuratively draws him closer to
Queen Gertrude is emphasizing how painful and hurtful it is to hear what Hamlet has to say. She is pained and tormented by Hamlet’s view on her marriage to her late husband’s brother. Oxymoron has also been used when Hamlet says. “I must be cruel, only to the kind”. This shows that he was kind to Polonius in killing him though it was a cruel act.
This reflects the idea of what it means to be human through acceptance of mortality. The idea of corruption was almost instantly with Marcellus stating “something is rotten in the state of Denmark” in Act 1. Initially it could be thought he was speaking of the threat of war however in hindsight it was Claudius’ corruption on the kingdom causing mayhem due to a disturbance in the natural order which is shown through the wandering ghost of King Hamlet and Hamlets quote “The dram of evil…doth all the noble substance of a doubt” that reflects corruption Claudius spreads through the kingdom.
Akhmatova’s melancholic diction initially reveals her sorrow, but the tone transitions to serious and introspective when she uses allusions to religious martyrdom and imagery of fixed objects. These contemplations are later resolved when she integrates imagery of liberation to portray an ultimately triumphant and optimistic outlook towards the future. Within the first sections, Akhmatova employs melancholic diction to convey her grief. In “Prologue,” she writes “that [Stalin’s Great Purge] was a time when only the dead could smile” (Prologue, Line 1), which suggests it was preferable to die than to live and emphasizes her despondency.
Medea’s sacrifice lacks this reciprocity. Immediately before sacrificing her first child, Medea commands “Discedere a me, frater, ultrices deas manesque ad imos ire securas iube” (967-968). That she intends to sacrifice her children without the rightful authority of “ultrices deas” and instead under the supervision of her “frater” – and in some ways his being her sibling makes him an extension of
Though Wilde tells us that Cecily is “not a romantic girl”, the flakiness of Jack and Algernon lend us to expect her to be the opposite—and Wilde knows this. Instead of make Cecily out to be the typical damsel in love so common in romance novels, he makes her a damsel who has gone a bit loony with love. So when Wilde ends his play by both invoking its title and giving it a double meaning, he’s able to end on the same key that the play has had all along: maintaining a saccharine tone while presenting an unpredictably predictable revelation. In a way, The Importance of Being Earnest sets its audience up to understand its title. Most people would assume that Earnest is, well, about some person realizing the importance of being earnest.
In line 2, the narrator says “They took my lover’s tallness off to war ” (2)as if he had no choice. “Took” implies against one’s will, as in two people were torn apart. Although “tallness” is supposed to give an image to add to the physical attributes of the love, it also contributes to an image of a bond breaking. All this grief that the narrator experiences because of death is only imminent because the narrator has coupled her lover and happiness together. One does not exist without the other, which is a very traditional
Abigail falls further into delirium when she speaks to John in Act Two Scene Two, where she confesses that she believes she is doing God’s work. She tells John, “God gave me strength to call them liars, and God made men to listen to me, and by God I will scrub the world clean for the love of Him!” (Miller 137). The reader and John being to see the depth of Abigail’s sickness at this point. Schissel explains, “Miller wants us to believe, as Proctor does "seeing her madness" when she reveals her self-inflicted injuries, that Abigail is insane: … While Miller may have intended her madness to be a metaphor for her inherent evil … he must have realized he ran the risk of making her more sympathetic than he intended.”
