Prospero’s ideals and views destroyed right when a spirit questions his ethics. Ariel, a non human spirit, even admits he feels bad for the men that Prospero tortured. This causes Prospero to forgive the men, not because he truly wants to, but because of his ego. He doesn’t want to be lower than one of his servants so he pretends to be more compassionate and accepting. Prospero then tells Ariel;“The rarer action is/In virtue than in vengeance.”(V.i.35-36).
Even if they apologize or say they didn’t mean it, the speaker will keep remembering this incident and feel bad about themselves. However, the speaker can’t do anything to change their situation because the things commented on are traits they were born like their skin color. Finally, many people believe that “the ambition of the racist language is to denigrate and erase” people (49). However, philosopher Judith Butler suggests that it is actually a chance to stand out and engage with others. Since racist language targets the visibility of people, it gives people ways to show their presence as well.
Roger is not as handsome as other people are, but he has one of the nicest hearts, he just needs realize that is what Hester saw in him. The reader feels for Roger because he married a pretty girl but she cheats on him and now Roger feels worthless for because Hester gave the impression that Roger was not good
I say Gurov’s constant dishonesty about his true feelings toward his wife is a prime example of a selfish lie. I believe Gurov is fully aware of how morally wrong his actions are, but nonetheless, it is apparent he does not care. I assert that the reason he continues to lie to his wife is because he feels that he is a “superior being” in comparison to women, and as a result of this belief, it has allowed him to view his wife as weak and inferior, and dismissing feelings of attachment to her. When one regards another person as being physically or intellectually weaker and inferior, I feel it is easy for a the liar to take advantage of the weaker person because the latter is viewed as not worthy of the same dignity or respect as “superior” people;
While Gatsby’s issues are with his manipulation, Tom is more brutish. Toms nature is somewhat abusive, as shown by how he hit Myrtle. The act was portrayed well in the 2013 film, where both of them were visibly angry. They walked in a room arguing, and Tom lost his temper. Tom also taunted Gatsby, which caused conflict.
But upon closer inspection, it becomes clear that he is not as adept as Beneatha would like. He informs Beneatha that a man and woman can only share a certain type of relationship-a romantic one (Hansberry 92). This makes it seem like he values the same things George does in a woman. It comes across that he doesn't want Beneatha around if she keeps sharing her thoughts and opinions, and that bothers her. She knows relationships are based on speaking to one another and learning about the other person so she is irked when Asagai doesn’t want that with her.
Modern time is similar to Shakespeare’s time in some way. Whatever Iago did was because of jealousy. He can’t see anyone else be on the higher position than he is, so when Cassio got promoted instead of him, which than lead to anger and jealously. He did whatever he can to ruin the reputation of Othello and Cassio in the society so people would hate them. Jealously was the problem back in Shakespeare’s time and still is a problem in modern world too.
The eighteenth habit is, “Punishing the Messenger”. This habit can cause a breakdown in relationships because often the person providing the information is not the person who created the mistake or is the person who created the mistake but they are trying to reconcile the issue. The reaction of punishing the messenger may cause the person to regret trying to help in the situation and prevent them from helping in the future. In the nineteenth habit, “Passing the Buck” the author discusses how some managers or leaders are not able to take responsibility for their actions or mistakes and have to push the blame onto someone else. This may cause negative feels and cultivate a lack of respect for the individual who is not willing or able to take on the responsibility.
George does not want to rock the boat when it comes to telling others they are right or wrong. George is like most of the individuals in today’s society, he knows he can change something, yet chooses to sit back and let someone dictate for him. Something that should stand out to readers during this text is when Hazel tells George she would have chimes be the noise on Sundays. George immediate responds by saying that the noise not only wouldn’t be loud enough, but it would be as cruel and that in turn made him unequal. What if individuals accept the worse and when offered something better, they believe they don’t deserve it?
She was the one who began the entire witchcraft because she wanted Elizabeth killed and John Proctor all to herself. She had affairs with John Proctor and loved him, but unfortunately for her he did not feel the same about her and we can see this through their conversation “Abigail: Give me a word John…. Abigail, in tears: I look for John Proctor that took me from my sleep and put knowledge in my heart….” (22). Abigail Williams is very manipulative and because of this many innocent people were calumny and sentenced to death. It is very clear that Abigail is very vindictive as we can see clearly that she took revenge on Elizabeth for firing her.
