The creature goes off on his own and get revenge on Victor by murder the people he is close to. Victor wants the creature dead and the creature wants Victor dead, in the end they both get what they wanted. The theme that passion can be destructive is shown through the creature, Victor's self destruction, and Victor and the creature’s passion to get revenge on each other. The theme of actions by passion can be destructive is first demonstrated by the creature’s passion for everything he does.
Unlike Shakespeare, Wilde uses names to further the satirical nature of The Importance of Being Earnest. Throughout the play Wilde is perpetually using situational irony, exaggeration, deflation and epigrammatic phrases in order to ridicule societies social norms. Although the play is satirical it also gives a lot of insight on the importance of names. The play states that names are enough to judge character and even status in society. Wilde uses Algernon especially to ridicule society, at of the play he states that “divorces are made in heaven” which is ironic because by the very end of the play he proposes to a girl who he knew for ten minutes (Wilde).
It makes or breaks a person. All the characters in the play are mere puppets of their emotions and feelings. Hamlet is a heart wrenching tale guided by betrayal ultimately leading to deaths and destruction. A dark and depressing tale, it is a mesmerising work by
Johann Kaspar Lavater once said, “The jealous are possessed by a mad devil and a dull spirit at the same time.” People who have become jealous are taken over by an evil greater than themselves, but are also taken by a insecurity they have inside of them, strong people taken over by jealousy so much- that they change so horribly no one wants anything to do with them. William Shakespeare’s Othello teaches us that in jealousy as either envy or fear, the only thing that could come out is the monster deepest inside of someone that even the best people wouldn’t want anyone to see.
In his play Antigone, the author, Sophocles, uses irony to illustrate the power of women versus men and to portray the true nature of pride. Sophocles conveys how damaging and destructive being prideful can be, as in his play it leads to complete familial destruction, but also how this pride is caused by the disobedience and defiance of others, as Antigone disobeys Creon, and he does this through the use of irony, leading the viewer to examine his own life in an attempt to rectify any possible ironic situations that could lead to the same, but minimized, consequences as those found in Antigone. In the play’s opening Antigone is seen grieving over Creon 's law, but it is this prideful action that Creon took that will cause the unravelling of his world by Antigone: a simple yet confident woman. This law that Creon created was that Antigone’s brother Polyneices, who died fighting against Thebes, is not to be buried but to be left out in the open, while her other brother Eteocles, who died fighting for Thebes, is to be allowed a proper burial.
Ophelia: An object of Male Patriarchy “Ophelia is the object upon which the three male overlords in her life – Hamlet, Polonius, Laertes – exert their domination and control to further their own personal and political agendas”. (Tynelle, 18). My reading of Ophelia had been shaped by Tynelle Ann Olivas’s Thesis on “Who is Ophelia? An examination of the Objectification and Subjectivity of Shakespeare 's Ophelia”.
The play entails the main character, Macbeth, and his ruthless quest for power which was not only morally and ethically unjust but an example of power controlling ones mind. The play highlights his and Lady Macbeths intentions and motives, imprisoning their humanity, control their actions and cause impulsivity and greatly devastating endeavours to be carried out, greatly upsetting the natural order in turn disrupting the natural path the future would take. The play acts as a warning to all, with the aim of revealing how such a fatal flaw can ruin ones whole existence. Shakespeare illustrates the psychological damage that occurs in this play is evident, and is represented in a multitude of different ways through a variety of interactions between characters. An example of such an occurrence is how Lady
Only after he is repeatedly rejected does the creature become violent and decides to seek revenge” (Mellor 106). This creation story is made obvious from the commencement with the epigraph from John Milton’s Paradise Lost (1667), which starts the novel • In an effort to promote his capability for human interface and thus describe his place in the social order, the individual in Frankenstein ducats himself on principles and immorality. “I read of men concerned in public affairs, governing or massacring their species. I felt the greatest ardor for virtue rise within me, and abhorrence for vice, as far as I understood the signification of those terms, relative as they were, as I applied them, to pleasure and pain alone”(125).
The readers of the play often have different opinions of who is to blame for Romeo and Juliet 's death. In the story, It 's Not My Fault: The No-Excuse Plan for Overcoming Life 's Obstacles, written by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend, goes into detail about the action of blame. The story mentions, “We live in a culture of blame. People will blame anyone or anything for their misery sooner than take the responsibility to own it and make it better. " What this quote is explaining is that, when a person is going through a hard time in life, blame of other people is typically their reaction.
While Shakespeare's Othello is full of deceitful acts of immorality, Iago is behind each one of them. Iago’s, deceptions make Othello believe that his wife is cheating on him with Cassio. Through many remarks Iago is able to force images of sexual relations in Othello's mind. These images and the rage that the images bring soon lead to the hatred of both Othello and Iago. Iago is motivated by his need for revenge and his hatred that he has for Othello.
Dalrymple’s states that the origins of evil are found in all of us, he describes this type of evil as “the evil that is found in the everyday actions of men.” Dalrymple goes on to explain, “There is obviously something flawed in the heart of man that he should wish to behave in this depraved fashion “According to Dalrymple it is a legacy of original sin, it is inherent. Man’s inherent self-interest will eventually end up hurting others. Therefore, as a whole, we require some form of regulation to make sure we do not destroy one another. The need for government oversight contradicts the other half of Dr Dalrymple’s reasoning that this toxic environment is a side effect of Great Britain turning in to a welfare state.
One part of them wants to live and is goal-directed and life-affirming, while the other part is self-critical, self hating and ultimately self destructive” (Firestone, Page 1-2). Robert Firestone has came up with a Theory that involves the “real self” and the “anti self”. He has came up with, the real self represents the side of the individual that wants to live and is life-affirming while the anti self the destructive thoughts and destructive side of the individual. Negative thoughts exist in the suicidal mind, which drives the said individual to self criticism and self hatred.
It is the impression of responsibility for this poor action that has been committed. In this play, there are many ideas, but guilt is one of the most significant ones. It teaches important lessons to the readers, with everlasting morals. In Act 2, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth chose to commit a sin, killing King Duncan, at his stay at Macbeth’s kingdom.
