In The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, Holden Caulfield often refers to the people around him as ¨phonies.¨ Although he uses this word to describe almost everyone he meets, Holden never refers to himself as a phony. In reality, Holden Caulfield himself is the epitome of phony. He is a pathological liar, and he often pretends to be something that he is not. Holden Caulfield is a phony because he often pretends to be a different person than who he really is.
Two of Romeo’s best friends remain ou of the loop and are not informed when the love-srtricken Romeo find love and gets married. The importance of this irony appears because the driving antagonistic force behind the tales presents itself as the lack of hate between the two families and how the two enemies fall in love, but the idea of enemies falling in love seems so ridiculous to Romeo’s closest friends that they still believe he yearns for Rosaline. Symbolism: the use of objects or facts to represent ideas or
In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, various characters show how pure intentions can lead to deadly consequences. Although the title of the play implies that Romeo and Juliet is a love story, in reality, it is a terrible tragedy. Misapplied virtues turn to vice when Romeo interferes in Mercutio and Tybalt’s duel, when Balthasar delivers the tragic news of Juliet’s death to Romeo, and when Friar Lawrence agrees to marry Romeo and Juliet. By intervening in Mercutio and Tybalt’s fight, Romeo’s helpful intention leads to deadly consequences for Mercutio, Tybalt, and himself. When Tybalt insults Romeo, calling him a villain, he is not concerned.
William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing is a comedic drama. This play provides a perfect blend of drama, as well as a fair amount of comedic relief, sometimes seemingly at the Inappropriate of times. In Act 4 Scene 1, lines 314-342, Benedick and Beatrice have already proclaimed their love for each other, after Claudio has called off his wedding with Hero. They are so blinded by the fact that one loves the other and vise-versa, they seem to allow all of their emotions to take ahold of them. The audience gets a dramatic view with a light comedic undertone; they are saying all these things about loving one another, because they think the other loves them.
“The greatest sacrifice is When you sacrifice your own happiness for the sake of someone else.” helping others and sacrificing the time to give someone else their happiness is great.

The difference between the two emotions are drastic, but Shakespeare explores the idea that they are similar. Romeo is a Montague, and Juliet a Capulet; neither are born with hate, but both learn it. The couple learn to love, but the deception and misunderstandings lead to catastrophic endings. The relationship that they manifest displays the way they are taught to love, and how hatred interrupts these relationships. In Romeo and Juliet, hatred ironically reinforces the central theme of love.
Margaret Wolfe Hungerford once said, “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. The meaning of this quote is that beauty exists only in the mind of the person that contemplates it. This correlates with the beginning of the love shared by the main characters in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. Born from opposing families, Romeo and Juliet fall in love, but cannot be together because of their family feud. Their love begins from the moment they meet, and just upon looking at each other, they instantly fall in love.
In his story, Sekhar learns through experience, whereas in Tell the Truth but Tell it Slant, it is simply a written message. In addition, the poem explains why the truth might hurt others by stating “The Truth must dazzle gradually/Or every man be blind-.” Sekhar, though mentioning several times that he is aware of the power of the truth, he never gives a reason as to why it is so powerful. Tell the Truth but Tell it Slant plainly states how most people are not prepared to emotionally handle the truth. The poem for this reason, could be thought of as more helpful than Like the Sun to those considering exposing the full
Quite simply, Creon’s pride is based on nothing. He has nothing to back up what he says in the long run. The only factor supporting what he says is his authority. Even when the wisest person in the entirety of Thebes, Teiresias, is speaking to Creon, he denies that Teiresias has any credibility. Teiresias says “The only crime is pride” but Creon at this point isn’t even listening to him (Scene 5 l. 35).
Friar Lawrence advised Romeo and Juliet to get married despite the ongoing feud between their families. Out of pure selfishness the Friar married them because in his mind if he could bring the two houses together, he would be considered a hero. The Friar not once considered what may happen if his plan were to backfire and do the opposite. “For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (Shakespeare 411). The friar marrying Romeo and Juliet was the first step into the domino affect of their
