Ionesco put his focus on the tragedy of language. In fact he bothers the audience with the disintegration of language, which is one of his main targets of this play. All over The Bald Soprano can be analyzed as a parody where the author mocks about the universal bourgeoisie which, to reveal a dehumanized mankind which became spiritually seen empty. Therefore Ionesco used the language as an important implement to highlight this dehumanization. In concrete the language of the Smiths and Martins is indeed old fashioned and dry adding slogans and a lot of simple expressions.
Both pieces of literature present how both writers view the breakdown of morality through the breakdown of civil behaviour. Shakespeare and Golding present Jack and Macbeth as very complex characters, both presented as ‘eccentric’ and ‘heroic’ personalities. In both texts the characters are introduced in contrast to their surroundings. In Lord of the flies, the character Jack is first introduced to the reader in complete contrast to the setting. The setting is presented as ‘beautiful’ and ‘flawless’ whilst on the other hand Jack is presented as “something dark fumbling along”.
Escpecially when translations of the novel can differ so greatly. This difference in translation begins in the very first line of the novel, “I am a sick man…I am a spiteful man. I am an unattractive man.” (1) (Garnett) The way that Garnett translates this makes the narrator seem hateful and angry. Pavear and Volokhonsky’s translation of this same line creates a different image of the narrator, “I am a sick man…I am a wicked man. An unattractive man.” (1) The use of the word wicked takes away the anger and adds a sense of irony.
Let me take a pinch of snuff. It is really excellent — first-rate! (Lavrin) Gogol depicts this character as realizing “this isn 't real”, such evil spirits don 't really exists, convincing himself that all that is happening, cannot really be happening. Adding excuses as to why this may be happening such as, “I have drunk a little too much”, leaving the reader wondering if such actions are happening or being imagined. The theme of The Viy is also recognized in a following quote where Gogol exhibits prose giving a flow of actions and portrayal as the witch comes after Thomas, he gives the reader a sense of
John Milton’s Paradis Lost is an extravagant poem enlisting the elegance of man’s first act of disobedience towards God. Thus, referencing upon the consequences that result from it. Though Milton’s predicament is seemingly hopeless, he manages to endure. Posing as a puissant figure, standing amongst God’s army of fellow angels, “As when though stood 'st in Heav’n uprights and pure; That glory then, when thou no more waft good” (Milton), Satan has pronounced himself as a more evolved threat of God’s army. In which, Satan withstands the subtle title of an embellishing evil as well as the opening of danger given the opportunity.
Satan fulfilled his destiny, but, alas, as any tragic hero, Satan was doomed to fail, “he stood, expecting / Their universal shout and high applause / To fill his ear, when contrary he hears / … A dismal universal hiss, the sound / Of public scorn” (10.504-509). His hubris blinded him to the consequences of his actions. It is difficult to conceive Satan as a hero in any context, but Milton achieves this. Paradise Lost demonstrates how significant our frame of reference is to our perception of who a hero and who is a villain. While the personification of evil may never be recognized as a hero in everyday life, many other individuals might be considered a hero, or at least not a monstrous villain, if we consider their side of the
“There 's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.” This perfect quote by Oscar Levant describes Hamlet’s character and psychological intelligence. How does a genius man, a man full of reason, comical wit, and a profound admiration for life become the man who feels no form of resentment as he plots his uncle’s murder? Philosophy alone is meant to encourage thinkers to analyze abstract concepts of life such as: death, nature, love and relationships, and the human mind. This ideology, mixed with Hamlet’s traumatizing experiences throughout the play are bound to pester with Hamlet’s internal conflicts and thus, affect the ways he acts.
The evil of Hyde grows as the darkness of the setting becomes clearer as demonstrated in Hyde 's house in Soho and the lab in the back of Dr. Jekyll 's house as well as the fog that covers the streets.This helps in creating the development of evil throughout the story. The setting of the novel is most important in bringing the
The play therapeutically elucidates the mischief that may theoretically derive from a life of solemnity and thoughtlessness. The play appears to be a simplistic comedy, and indeed it may be, featuring the typical characters and conventions expected. Moreover, Twelfth Night follows the traditional structure and form of a comedy with its pleasant resolution. In contrast, Malvolio assures the audience that the complexity of the play is much greater then what first meets the eye. It promises spectators that the theme of hierarchy is purposefully intertwined in the plot to elevate knowledge of the disturbing reminder of
In these opening pieces, Blake tells us that good and evil aren 't like what we told that Heaven is good, and hell is bad. They 're just different kinds of energies, and both are needed for our existence, and keep the world going. A Memorable Fancy explains how Blake went on a visit to Hell. He “was walking among the fires of Hell, delighted with the enjoyments of Genius.” Then he saw a “mighty Devil” tucked in black clouds and flights over the sides of the rock with flame fire. While he was touring around, Blake says that he collected some of the Proverbs of Hell.
