William Shakespeare once said, “The evil that men do lives after them;/ the good is oft interred with their bones”. Sinful and arrogant are just two of the most memorable traits that will always be remembered. Unluckily, these are associated with horrible and sometimes selfish actions leaving us to remember some of the noblest men with awful thoughts. We see this every day from daily communications to relationships with other countries. It is imperative to recognize the fact that the evil that men do live after them and is strongly represented and illustrated by in the play The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, in the film Valkyrie, and in the case of NFL quarterback Michael Vick.
It shows how the characters are shocked and are in the state of panic fearing of the situation they are in and all the sufferings they have to go through. The first appearance of the term began on page 413 where the narrative saw in the news that Sonny got locked in prison. “I stared at it in the swinging lights of the subway car, and in the faces and bodies of the people, and in my own face, trapped in the darkness which roared outside”(413). This quote shows that the term darkness is represented as fear for the narrator. He was in a panic of fear because out of all the people in the whole wide world, he thinks to himself why, does it had to be his brother and He just couldn’t accept the fact that Sonny was in put in prison.
The speaker is still focused on him/herself as seen in the use of “I” and “me”. The feelings of guilt and grief begin to surface after the speaker’s murderous rampage, they say, “If only they’d all consented to die unseen gassed underground the quiet Nazi way.” This loaded sentence brings the poem full-circle again, speaking of the gassing and referencing Nazis; however, it seems to be a charged accusation to the woodchucks themselves, as if the speaker is accusing them of bringing out all of this evil because they didn’t choose to die easily when the speaker was being
“When I came to power, I did not want the concentration camps to become old age pensioners homes, but instruments of terror.” These are the words from one of the worst monsters in history-Adolf Hitler, and what he said in the quote was absolutely correct. These concentration camps were horrifying with the smell of burning flesh and the bloodcurdling screams of thousands of people. I learned that you had to work to survive and had to be emotionless according to Elie in the book Night. Learning about what they did in the concentration camps teaches us more and more about how lucky we are for living in this time period and to not live in fear of being tortured or killed. I learned several things in this book, some of which include, Jews getting into ghettos (a ghetto was a part of a city, especially a slum
One action, a split second decision can undo all good deeds in a person 's life. This often occurs in novels such as The Crucible by Arthur Miller or The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne where characters make a life altering decision that causes them pain in the end. These character traits are used so often it becomes something of a stereotype, similar to the characters’ personalities in these iconic novels. The authors use cliches to express the idea that kind hearted people can become sinners despite their goodness. Through all of the symbolism in the story, Hawthorne clears up any confusion by saying that good people, like all others, commit sins.
Revenge is the action of inflicting hurt or harm on someone for an injury or wrong suffered at their hands. In the novel ‘Wuthering Heights’, the author, Emily Brontë explores the idea of the immense influence revenge can have on one’s personality and actions, and the miserable future it leads to. Wuthering Heights is a gothic novel featuring passion, love, cruelty, supernatural elements and a dark atmosphere. In the novel, Emily Brontë proves that eternal revenge is a hard and damaging way of living one’s life without happiness, and that the only way to be truly happy is to forgive. Paragraph 1 When one reads the novel, the first character to be associated with revenge, despite the fact that it is appearing among all characters, is Heathcliff.
Confessions of a Guilty Mad Man The motive that made guilt manifest within. A lesson of guilt taught with fear, and the outcomes of how guilt can make a man go mad and confess. This is what Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart” teaches us. Within the beginning of the story the narrator thinks very highly of himself telling the reader that he was very careful with getting away with murder. “You should have seen how wisely I proceeded with what caution-with what foresight-with what-dissimulation I went to work!
The tortures of hell are too mild a vengeance for thy crimes” (93). He is fully aware he the root of all problems, yet he believes the Creature to be censurable and denying to give it a chance of salvation when he breaks his promise and destroys the female creature he was working on; his actions result in his father and Elizabeth’s deaths. This also makes the
Firstly, I find it a beautiful quote because she’s trying to explain that suffering binds all religions. Secondly – at the beginning of the book, Alaska gives Miles a riddle to solve from a man’s last words: “Damn it. How will I ever get out of this labyrinth?” Miles first interpreted the sentence by metaphorically replacing the labyrinth with life and death. However, on page 102 Alaska revealed that the labyrinth was a metaphor for suffering and that his quest was to end his never-ending suffering. Alaska explains that the person was talking about the pain, the pain which is brought to people who have done something wrong and in return something or someone wronged them.
In ancient times and in Shakespeare 's days as well, the elements of nature were believed to be in very close sympathy with human joy and sorrow. The tempest that Ariel created at the beginning of the play, symbolizes the sufferings that Prospero had to endure, and what he wants to inflict on those who betrayed him. He must make his enemies suffer, just as he suffered, so he can teach them a lesson, and maybe his enemies will learn from their own suffering. Despite Prospero 's suffering, the tempest is also a symbol of his magic, and the dark and frightening side of his power. Prospero, who is one of the most mysterious protagonists of Shakespeare, is a skilled magician.
