One of the thing that makes Brutus fits the definition of a tragic hero more than Caesar is that he has a noble personality. Brutus is always afraids that Caesar will become a tyrant, and at that time, everyone will become slaves, who live in misery. So that he kills Caesar for the good of Rome, not to deceive Caesar, and everything he does is for the benefit of someone else, not for personal gain. “Not because I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more”(3.2.23-24). About Caesar, he always acts like he is nice, but he is not.
Cassius does not back down following the almost dictatorial pronouncements of his equal, Brutus, even though he absolutely disagree heartedly with most of Brutus’s decisions. To accomplish his goal of completely removing Caesar from power he tries everything he can. He finally resorts to using his keen insight in human nature to convince Brutus by means of a long drawn out, passionate argument, coupled with bogus notes. In the conversation with Brutus, Cassius says, Brutus sense of honor, nobility, and pride more than he presents concrete example of Caesar’s actions. Then he ends up killing
Being smart is good but it can be a bit mean to other people and a bit arrogant. The characters Uncle Basil from ‘’You Can’t Take It With You’’ and Ian Malcolm from the The Lost World are both smart because they both do things unexpected and they like to prove their points. In the short story ‘’You Can’t Take It With You’’ Uncle Basil is smart because he was able to prove his family wrong. Uncle Basil is smart ‘’ They called him scrooge basil’’ (Wuorio 1) and they would insult him behind his back. Uncle Basil is smart because he was able to take the money that his family wanted greedly by hiding it in his coffin and getting cremated with it.
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see “Its is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent but the one most responsive to change.” -Charles Darwin. The character Piggy in William Golding's novel Lord of the Flies serves as the intellectual balance to the emotional leaders of a group of shipwrecked British boys, but he himself is not able to cope with the idea of change and fear is what holds him back. Their new society does not care about Piggy’s intellectual talents instead they value physical strength more, as they believe it is their key to survival. Lord of the Flies is a novel which has many hidden symbols to what each character represents. Piggy is a character which can be connected with many symbols as he represents the intellectual part of society, control and laws and order of the adult world and civilization.
Characters: Gilgamesh – Arnold Schwarzenegger “One Third Human Two Third God-Half American Half Austrian” Gilgamesh who is the king of the Uruk city is known with his strength and wisdom. He is a fearless warrior and also the builder of the walls of Uruk. However, as we all know even these gigantic walls couldn’t prevent Gilgamesh from harming his people. He is the reason of the suffering people. I think this cruel and behavior associates with “Evil”.
“The fact is that a man who wants to act virtuously in every way necessarily comes to grief among so many who are not virtuous” (Machiavelli 6). Indeed, Brutus is a symbol of idealism in the play. He acts virtuously to cover up the assassination accordingly to his perspective, where he compares the assassination to a rite, and Caesar’s dead body to a holy article. Further more, Brutus consistently doubted himself whether the assassination was an ethical thing or not. “Caesar, now be still: I kill’d not thee with half so good a will” (5.5.56-57).
They 're off bathing, or eating, or playing” (p. 70). Jack asserts himself as the leader of the hunters and feels that because he hunts, than he is superior to the other boys and he should be able to dictate what happens. This also relates to today 's society, when put far more importance upon doctors and lawyers instead construction workers and plummers. This idea is inherently unfair, because no one person is better than the next. If the boys listened to everyone and cooperated than there would be less chaos and less savagery among the boys.
The silence accepted the gift and awed them.” The previous passage demonstrates that the boys’ dismay of the Lord of the Flies is gradually growing. This is a result of the endorsement of such transcendental speculations by the leader of the tribe. Meanwhile, the tribe members will not dare to challenge Jack as he is the one that is believed to provide the shield that they all need against this evil creature: the beast. In Collins’s work, despite the fact that the leaders of Panem are barbaric and cruel, the
Fear was also spread through each other because of each other. In Lord of the Flies, the boys had separated themselves into 2 groups, Ralphs or Jacks.Ralphs group was more civilized but Jacks group was more savage and were more into having fun than focusing on surviving on the island and thinking about the long run.The two leaders had come off to show themselves as strong and independent but later on, they started to gain this hatred in themselves selves for each other it grew so much that Jack had come to the point where he was ready to kill Ralph because he posed as a threat to him. In the book, it states how Ralph finds out how the other group is planning to kill him when all he wanted to do was try to be leader to keep
Also, Ralph never followed the idea of hunting, because he thought it was savage, but soon learns to appreciate hunting when a boar attacked the group, and Ralph kills it. Evaluation of Behavior (your thoughts): He very well uses his power and his good looks to become the leader. He shows much civilized characteristics compared to Jack. He always goes ahead of the group, and pushes himself to do something that he doesn’t want to for the greater good. Also, he cares for others, and wants everyone to be equal.
