Alan is a literal symbol of a chaser as he is directly pursuing Diana. The life-cleaner is a figurative symbol of a chaser since that potion is like the second drink or shot, taken after a harsh first alcoholic drink, to offset the foul effects of the first drink. Thus, the life-cleaner potion is the equivalent of the second drink, to be taken to counteract the appalling effects of the first drink, the love potion. By using symbolism, Collier is able to better connect his message to his plot. Further, when Collier writes, “Lives need cleaning sometimes,” the author is being metaphorical.
This makes him seem as a puppeteer who has complete control over how others act. A strong example of this is Sheila when “She stares at him wonderingly and dubiously”, which suggests that she has restrained her thoughts and given up to the inspector, showing that Sheila identifies him as a guide and recognizes his authority over her family. The use of the word ‘wonderingly’ indicates that there are many aspects of the inspector others find enigmatic and even otherworldly. Similarly, the word ‘dubiously’ indicates that others approach Inspector Goole with a sense of doubt and care. The curious, yet doubtful attitude Sheila presents towards him, and the fact that she’s become infatuated with him, emphasize how he’s a figure of authority.
Iago will have his wife, Emilia steal Desdemona's handkerchief given to her by Othello. Once the handkerchief is in his possession, he will plant it in Cassio’s room, thus sparking Othello’s jealousy and suspicion of Desdemona and Cassio’s affair. This part of Iago’s plan has many moving parts, that he must facilitate or he risks the chance of getting caught. Moreover, Shakespeare's use of dramatic irony suggests that Iago intelligence outweighs the intelligence of all the other characters in the play. The audience knows the path the handkerchief, took before it got to Cassio.
Thus, by contrasting demonic imagery with Othello’s true nature, Shakespeare develops the theme of how impressions can be deceptive. This is further emphasized by Brabantio’s impressions of Othello. After Othello’s noble nature is first revealed to the audience, he politely addresses Brabantio, stating “Good signior, you shall more command with years/Than with your weapons” (I.ii. ___). Brabantio responds insultingly, utilizing hellish imagery when addressing Othello, stating “Damn'd as thou art, thou hast enchanted her” (I.ii.
However, Kurt Vonnegut decides to include humour in this by including comical descriptions, unrealistic tones in tragic circumstances and dialogue between characters and unrelated comparisons. “Billy saw pink arches with azure draperies hanging between the and an enormous clock, and two golden thrones, and a bucket and a mop. It was this setting that the evenings entertainment would take place, a musical version of Cinderella” (Vonnegut, 98). The author uses the color “pink” to set the scene. The words “entertainment” and “musical”;which are generally seen to be optimistic terms.
With Tartuffe, we clearly see this with him serving as the over the top comical relief who in serving as the central piece which discredits and challenges the sanctity of the clergy and associated aristocrats, also utilizes his aloofness to sustain the comical aesthetic throughout the development of the play. Moliere’s work also stands out to me as being a signature entertaining piece of classical work due to his emphasis on utilizing the neoclassical unities of time, place, and action throughout the fullness of the work. Unlike Shakespearean works which include numerous microcosms of events and are suffocated by an extensive and at times confusing network of complicated and long-winded subplots, Tartuffe stands as a work which for all intents and purposes appears to be more direct in the progression of events. It utilizes a single major plot which carries over throughout and is influenced very little by external events or the complex intricacies of other developments between the characters, allowing for a more streamlined and enjoyable
He is “fated” to become king – this is known to the weird sisters, who also know that ambition is his hamartia. In this way, they orchestrate this “hurly - burly” and are keen on watching the catastrophe unfold before them. Considering the fact that these thoughts that “shake” the “single state” of Macbeth only take place after hearing the prophecies of the weird sisters, one can deduce that his own uninfluenced ambition would not have led him to such disastrous actions. Macbeth tries to console his “black and deep” desires by telling himself that “chance” will give him the crown, but the weird sisters awake such a murderous ambition within him that he cannot tame his own mind and consequently finds himself following a “dagger of the mind” to commit an action so grievous that the trustworthy soldier within him will never have enough peace to “sleep” again.
This represents the civility he currently has and shows that he is above the others in rank. Another reason to switch between the two is for comic relief or to show the change of mood. One such case is with the nurse, who will occasionally say a depressing statement
Yet again Stark show us her detailed writing style but what is important in the quote mentioned above when one of the men who appears to be rich insults Stark by stating that she is a “Nasrani” and “will go to hell”, nevertheless, Stark makes sure that she is not offended by the man comment as she seems to be understanding in where the man is coming from. Moreover, it is interesting to mention how Stark knew what the word Nasrani meant yet she keep herself calm and not effected by the yellow-turbaned man
The people in the group were not necessarily upset that Hyde had run over the little girl in the first place, and like Enfield said, the way they were both rushing it was to be expected. Those who witnessed the incident were more upset by Hyde acting as though nothing had happened, even though the girl was screaming in the street, clearly injured. Had he stayed back and tried to help I do not think people would have viewed him as being as foul as they do. This lack of manners in Hyde feels like it is represented by, or in some way connected to his physical appearance. At other points in the novella characters describe Hyde’s appearance as being disconcerting even though there is nothing particularly abnormal about his exterior.
Accusations during this time equate to someone putting pause on life as everyone else continued on with theirs. The great fear of this accusation lead to acts of hysteria. Those accused would do anything to get out of it, even if it meant pinning the blame on someone else whom they know to be innocent. These events inspire Arthur Miller to write “The Crucible” to share his experiences after the government would ban him from entering the United
However, the decision of when was to be determined by her, resulting in more power under her wings. Unfortunately, Curley 's wife wields what power she holds to threaten Crooks and Candy, and the men ultimately ignore her playful advances, unwilling to lose their livelihoods by upsetting a jealous
As already mentioned at the beginning of the story, she was “seizing at every chance to change Bailey’s mind” (O’Connor 112) regardless of his opposition, which is a clear act of manipulation. Another evidence of her influenceable behavior shows up during her conversation with the chief criminal “I know you are a good man” (O’Connor 121). By this statement, Bailey’s mother tries to influence the Misfit so that he will change his mind. Also, she repeatedly evokes religious belief, as a way to convince the Misfit to “pray” (O’Connor 123), and ask for forgiveness to Jesus Christ. Moreover, failing to achieve her goal, she calls the Misfit “one of my babbies” (O’Connor 125), which upsets him and causes her death.
Although Ifemelu received the service that she should have received without the initial response, Curt’s ability to threaten the salon in a raging manner without any backlash was an indication of his white privilege. No one questioned Curt or ignored his demands –he was visible to the Asian employee and his voice was heard. (361) Nevertheless, Curt’s white privilege caused a discomfort that would remind Ifemelu of the differences between them. Curt and Ifemelu’s relationship –that of a black woman and a white man –reflects the real world of white supremacy and systematic racism in America where people manifest attitudes of superiority and
