Juxtaposition of Unwind Writing is a complex thing, often difficult for some. Often times, authors write hundreds of thousands of words in their lifetime, forming them together to intriguing stories. Neal Shusterman has written countless award-winning novels, all entrancing stories keeping the reader entertained. But where do the great authors get their ideas from? Neal Shusterman used the countless events of his lifetime to come up with some of the main ideas in Unwind, as seen with the heartland war, the civil rights of the characters in the novel, and the living conditions some characters had growing up.
The Author Charles Frazier wrote in his book Cold Mountain “[No] matter what a waste a man has made of ones life, it is ever possible to find some path to redemption, however partial” John Proctor is a prime example of this quote. Towards the beginning of the play Miller gives the reader an impression that he is a selfish and immoral man that does not care about his family or the feelings of his wife, Elizabeth. As the play goes on however Miller’s representation of proctor can sway the opinions they have of John when he decides to let himself be hanged for good reason. Within the short timeline of the story John Proctor was able to look past his mistakes and restored his morals. John Proctor was denounced in the story when he was seduced
This shows how the character’s love for certain other characters, and their ambition to pursue said love, can lead to the destruction of previous relationships and lead them to make dangerous decisions. Another example of the characters making illogical decisions because of their ambition is in the beginning of the play when Egeus takes Hermia, Lysander, and Demetrius to Theseus and asks him to force his daughter to marry Demetrius lest she becomes a nun or faces death. While Egeus uses the possible death sentence as simply a threat and does not mean to actually execute his daughter, his ambition does blind him from seeing his daughter’s feelings and
What the Audience learns from John Proctor throughout the Crucible is that John Proctor was a flawed character and the beginning of the play, but coming into conclusion of the play he regains himself because he chooses to act as a tragic hero by seeking justice for his wife, friends, and
He targets the fact that Desdemona had been hiding Othello from her father, so she is skilled in deceiving others. He implies that because she did this once, she is liable to do it again. He says to Othello, “She did deceive her father, marrying you; And when she seem'd to shake and fear your looks, She loved them most” (Shakespeare, III, iii, 206-207). This accentuates Desdemona’s devious and possibly duplicitous nature. Iago says this as if he’s trying to simply warn Othello, but this puts the idea in Othello’s head that his wife is not completely innocent to deception.
They would draw from him when writing a speech or settling a debate. Shakespeare inspired many people, like artists, poets, musicians, ballets, operas, and many, many more. The famous Lin-Manuel Miranda pays homage to Shakespeare in his 11 Tony award winning musical “Hamilton.” He references Shakespeare’s “Macbeth,” speaking of Birnam Wood and Dunsinane. Shakespeare inspired people now and was inspired by people during and before the Renaissance. William Shakespeare changed modern English, writing, and theatre by writing plays during the Renaissance.
Reverend Parris is convincing Judge Danforth, that John Proctor is trying to dismantle the court, but John is only there to save the lives of those on trial. Marlow wrote, “Parris is evident in the stage directions where we first see Parris encounter his niece and are directly informed that she is glamorous and a compulsive liar” (1). Marlow is saying how Reverend Parris knows Abigail is a compulsive liar, but he believes her anyway. This causes a problem because Reverend Parris then spreads the lies. When Reverend Parris realizes he is spreading lies, he keeps it to himself to protect him from his enemies.
This causes Emillia to start to realize her husband’s plans. (3.) As Iago enters the scene of the murder, Emilia openly asks Iago if he told Othello that Desdemona was cheating on him; Iago responds thusly: “I told him what I thought, and told no more than what he found himself was apt and true” (V.II.212-213). (4.) Iago is stating that Iago just told Othello what he knew and what made sense (which is obviously not true).
Maybe; however, I agree with Playwright Sophocles that , "all men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil. The only crime is pride." This quote means that making a mistake is inevitable, but owning up to your mistake is what matters most. Sophocles quote is significant because it reveals that arrogance can in effect cause more damage that the mistake you created. I promise that I'm the most stubborn, prideful, sore-loser in the existence of
In the conclusion, after reading the play “Antigone”, I sympathize the story and result for Creon, and I think he is a tragic hero in the play. Even though, he gained his power through his heroism. He failed to see the example of King Oedipus, and used his stubbornness to make arbitrary decisions. As a result, he was punished by the gods, and lost his families. Although he had braveness to
