He is neither a hero nor a villain rather he is a victim of his self-indulgence. (Bloom. 249-150) In Shakespeare 's view, Richard is a failure as a king not because he is immoral, nor because he is too sensitive and refined for the job, but because he misunderstands the nature of kingship. (Elliott. History and
Magicians easily exploit these limits your brain has by misdirecting our attention so as to not let us see a secret move. All this proves that our vision is not as trustworthy as we thought it was. Magicians can exploit many limitations our eyes and our brains have.
Tragedies may all be different stories, but they all end in a similar way. Tragedies often have psychological implications that show what can lead to tragedy, be it fictional or non fictional. The story of Antigone centers around the fall of a prideful ruler who disobeys the gods, while Macbeth is about the fall of an ambitious hero influenced by evil. Creon is a more corrupt character than Macbeth because he is not affected by outside forces and the tragedy of the play is caused by him alone. The combination of Macbeth’s ambition and outside forces creates the tragedy in Macbeth, which is influenced by the supernatural much more than Antigone.
Othello: A Close Reading This is an analysis of the lines 260-279 of the third scene of the third act of Shakespeare’s Othello. In an attempt to fulfill the incessant need for comfortable dichotomies, societies tend to be divided into two groups: the ‘in-crowd’ and the ‘others’. These strict dualities, constructed upon the inherent need for adversaries, are often as arbitrary as they are false and based on nothing but fear.
Some would argue that all these character traits could fall under hubris or selfishness. Perhaps the belief in the witches is because he wants to believe what will better him, and maybe he is superstitious so he can have even a shred of dignity after achieving what was prophesied by the witches. However, in order to be considered tragic Macbeth would have to be defined by one single undeniable flaw. Even if he was given a flaw such as hubris, he has been so undeniably stupid and possibly insane throughout the play. After viewing ghosts and floating daggers, one would believe that the mental disorders within Macbeth go far beyond an oversized ego.
It shows that deception is not always disagreeable, it could help characters from suffering and how it can solve problem in the play. Sometimes, white lies could create an unsatisfied ending, however it could also change tragic life to the better. Deception of white lies support the play to end up with a happy ending. Those felicitous examples of deception give the audiences clear thoughts of how deceit can help relationship, romance and tragedy from comedy. It relates to social criticisms nowadays that white lie can be a way to make something possible.
“All that glisters is not gold; Often have you heard that told ; Many a man his life hath sold; But my outside to behold ; Gilded tombs do worms enfold.” ― William Shakespeare. Everything that we see might not be true, in the inside it might be completely a different thing. Appearance is a visual outward form of what we see, where reality is what is actually going on or the inward appearance. Believing blindly on what we see, or hear is not a smart choice.
Upon hearing of it, many are jarred to their core. They claim, “[insert appropriated material here] doesn’t exclusively belong to [culture being appropriated], anyone can take part of it!” or “appropriation is just a made up word that people use to make innocent white people feel guilty,”. This kind of denial relies on the belief that oppression and racism do not exist in society today, which is both an incorrect and ignorant

Tell me, who are you going to trust more? The man on trial who is trying to avoid being put on the chair, and will lie or will do anything to save his life? Or the elderly who have no such reason or intent to lie to you? These two witnesses should be enough to persuade you that this man is guilty and that he murdered his
For example, Feste says to Olivia, “I wear not motley in my brain.” (i.v.54-55). So although he may dress like a fool he does not have the intelligence of a fool and therefore should not be seen as someone who is dull. Feste is cautioning against making connections between what can be seen and what cannot, the actions and appearance of Feste do not shed light on his sanity as they are mutually exclusive. He later addresses this point again when interrogating Malvolio, “
