His intention in lampooning was for his audience to enjoy the irony and sarcasm of his work while criticizing the foolish view of the upper class. During the time play’s release, many critics wrote about their opinions of the play. Some critics saw his work as a fantasy, others said it was burlesque, but there were also critics who understood Wilde’s purpose for writing this play (Kohl 272). For instance, Norbert Kohl said, “He is made to laugh at the hollow superficiality hidden behind the mask of earnestness, and to mock the rich facade…” (Kohl 272). Khol clearly understood that Wilde’s purpose of writing The Importance of Being Earnest was to publicly and comically criticize the rich.

Alan S. Blinder presents in this article, “Abolishing the Penny Makes Good Sense” argues that the penny should be abolished because the penny is just a waste. Blinder supports his argument by listing and describing several problems that the penny causes. The authors purpose is to persuade the reader to agree with him to get rid of the penny so that the congress would not be wasting so much money into a penny.

In William Shakespeare’s Othello, the play is a tragedy constructed by the antagonist Iago; also known as a two-sided character. Throughout Act I, Iago is more of a complex character, who is racist, manipulative, jealous and two-faced. He continuously complains he hates Othello, all because Othello didn’t appoint him as an officer. Iago plans to take Roderigo’s money, and convince Othello that Desdemona had an affair with Cassio. Iago’s two-sided character served the purpose of strengthening the plot and character development throughout the play.
John Proctor approached the court about evidence that could bring down the entire hunt in one fell swoop. When the court and John walked into a home Danforth approached him with this: “your wife sends me a claim in which she is pregnant… We will let her live another year.” John proctor rejects this bribe, instead continuing on with his efforts to stop the hunt. Arthur Milller was bribed himself, where the House Committee on Un-American Activities actually said they would drop the charges if they were allowed to take a picture with his wife, which at the time was Marilyn Monroe. He proceeded to deny these bribes and just like John Proctor landed in some hot water because of it. These moments demonstrate how reality can mirror fiction and vice versa, even if it didn’t exactly mean to happen.

As the novel progresses, Nick becomes friends with a man named Gatsby, who is viewed as a mysterious figure to outsiders. Nick finds out his second cousin once removed, Daisy was once in love with Gatsby. Unfortunately for Gatsby, Daisy was more focused on money and the social power, so when he went to war, she did not wait for him, and instead married Tom Buchanan who had lots of “old” money. This shows the moral decay of society because Daisy left a man she loved (Gatsby) because she could not wait for him and he did not have the money. The name Daisy itself shows moral decay because in the novel the color yellow symbolizes moral decay.
His first words in the play are towards King Claudius and are in the form of a pun, “A little more than kin, and less than kind.” This phrase is made because Claudius is twice related to Hamlet by blood and marriage, as well as not being very kind.
