After reading both of the text “The Minister 's Black Veil” by Nathaniel Hawthorne and “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” by Jonathan Edwards they’re various similarities and differences can be noted, especially toward the attitudes of sin and guilt. In the story’s the are just portrayed a little bit different. In both stories the feel that sinning is horrible and should be frowned upon. In the story the “Minister 's Black Veil” Nathaniel Hawthorne wants the reader to know that Reverend Hooper is wanting to hide his past sins. When he is wearing the black veil he feels like that is the best for him to hide from his past sins.
The two short stories by S.L. Gilbow and Kurt Vonnegut Jr., both deal with Revenge, but they do so in different ways. “2BR02B” develops the theme of revenge by having one character irritate another, resulting in revenge right after the event. "Red Card" develops the theme by having the main character Linda shows revenge against previous acts, that happened before the story took place. However, the stories are both similar, by having both main characters develop revenge in an over exaggerated way.
The act of revenge means to avenge oneself or another by retaliating in kind or degree. Many people seek revenge for a variety of different reasons. Some forms of vengeance are warranted, while others are unnecessary or go too far. Every person is not the same, so it varies from person to person what initiates the want for revenge. In “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allen Poe, Fortunato wrongs his friend Montresor, the protagonist.
In fact, Mr. White is also warned of the consequences that he will have to face if he puts the paw to use. However, he goes and uses it and suffers the consequences of his greed. 2. The author W. W. Jacobs sets the mood of the story through setting and atmosphere to create a horror/mysterious vibe to the reader. He uses nature and the surroundings of the characters to create mood as he describes the atmosphere of location.
The Immaturity of Romeo and Juliet Immaturity can spread throughout things and people creating problems for the present and future. Similarly, Romeo and Juliet not only shows the development of love, but the loss of maturity that leads to tragedy. People develop maturity, but the amount of immaturity makes the process go backwards. From Romeo and Juliet’s fast evolving relationship to the hate between the two families, and the lack of thought in different characters is recurrent throughout the story. Therefore,the theme of Romeo and Juliet evolves around the idea of immaturity.
In his play Antigone, the author, Sophocles, uses irony to illustrate the power of women versus men and to portray the true nature of pride. Sophocles conveys how damaging and destructive being prideful can be, as in his play it leads to complete familial destruction, but also how this pride is caused by the disobedience and defiance of others, as Antigone disobeys Creon, and he does this through the use of irony, leading the viewer to examine his own life in an attempt to rectify any possible ironic situations that could lead to the same, but minimized, consequences as those found in Antigone. In the play’s opening Antigone is seen grieving over Creon 's law, but it is this prideful action that Creon took that will cause the unravelling of his world by Antigone: a simple yet confident woman. This law that Creon created was that Antigone’s brother Polyneices, who died fighting against Thebes, is not to be buried but to be left out in the open, while her other brother Eteocles, who died fighting for Thebes, is to be allowed a proper burial. The irony of withholding a proper burial from one brother, and not the other, for political reasons, leads to Antigone’s defiance of the law of the King.
Revenge can be defined as an action done to harm others for something bad they did. Revenge is a feeling that not only affects the people who hate each other, but also those who aren’t directly involved. In the play “The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet”, written by William Shakespeare, the topic of revenge and family rivalry is mentioned throughout the entire story. The play portrays different aspects of revenge through the use of two characters, which in this case are Romeo and Tybalt. As we know, revenge is a feeling that can lead a person to commit acts that they wouldn’t typically do if they were conscious of their actions.
What’s this? Is this her fault or mine? The tempter of the tempted, who sins most, ha?” The rhetorical questions indicate his temptation towards Isabella, but it also implies involving the audience and challenging them since he is directly speaking to them. “Not she; not doth she tempt, but it is I” this lines defines the antithesis with “I” and “She” making it clear that the actor must shape and clarify the thought and put emphasis on those two specific words when speaking it. Throughout the whole soliloquy there are extreme contrasts that hint that Angelo’s mind is in torment and is in extreme insecurity.
Kate Chopin and Roald Dahl both use irony as well as similar themes of betrayal and heartbreak to motion their two very different storylines forward. Though the works take place in antithetical eras, each holds a similar calamity that results in the breaking up of the protagonists and soon to be antagonists. These moments of heartache hold relevance due to their unfortunate relatableness in today 's society. Upon further inspection of the themes and irony in Lamb to the Slaughter, and Desiree’s Baby, the reader can better understand the possible cruelties a relationship can hold as well as it 's sometimes unavoidable hardships. Both narratives bear a conspicuous similarity using irony.
In Chaucer’s Knight’s Tale, Chaucer uses several different sins to develop the characters throughout the tale in order to portray the moral of the tale. Throughout the tale Chaucer provides the reader with the main motifs which are Anger and Pride. These two sins help provide with the characteristics of Palamoun and Arcite. As the tale runs on, Palamoun and Arcite tend to love the same girl. They begin to argue who saw her first and each one wanted to find love with her.
