The White Witch and Hitler The white Witch and Hitler had many differences and similarities. In my opinion these are the most important. Similarly both they were deceivers they tricked and cheated many people to carry out their mischievous schemes. An example of this was when the White Witch tempted Edmund to go to her castle however she just wanted to turn him and his siblings into stone. Hitler acted very contradictive by tricking many people that his wicked ideas were for an innocent cause.
In Cinderella, Lady Tremaine was harsh towards her own stepdaughter. Not only was Lady Tremaine in a pugnacious relationship with Cinderella, so were the evil stepsisters. The stepsisters constantly wanted to perform better than Cinderella at everything. When Lady Tremaine disregards Cinderella’s desire to attend the ball, she takes her stepsisters in place of her. This caused the failure of Lady Tremaine and the stepsisters to create a familial relationship with Cinderella.
Later in the story, when Inigo and Fezzick find Westley “almost dead,” they bring him to a wizard named “Miracle Max” and his wife, a witch. Previously demoted by Prince Humperdinck, Max’s need to destroy him is motivation to assist Westley. The interaction between the witch and Max provide comic relief to the obvious peril that the characters are under. The goofy and fun-loving roles that these “witches” take on illustrate how unrealistic this scene is. They treat his death casually, concocting a chocolate pill in order to resurrect Westley, as if this was a natural solution to the problem.
Some people would find this witch hysteria more rational than the clowns because people were getting hung and very scared of the devil. In “The Crucible”, seeing the girls dancing in the forest was a big thing back then, for it was religiously forbidden. See this caused people to be falsely accused for selfish reasons. Now, when the hangings began, the court continued hanging people because they didn’t want to make it look like they made the wrong decision, so they continued hanging. With the clown hysteria, these clowns aren’t being “accused” because they are automatically guilty just by dressing up as
Studies of cults has revealed that people are likely to fall into a trance if they already believe in spirit possession. The daily lives of nuns were in a supernaturalism, imaginations filled with satanic figures. This statement confirms the claim because dancers often spoke of satanic things or if the cult worshiped satanic figures then their minds would be corrupt, full of demons and others beings. The dancers were mostly religious seeking out shrines, having unfamiliar customs. Many of the dancers were in many countries such as Bohemia, but also from Hungary, Poland, Carinthia, Austria, and Germany were pilgrims.
Things Are Not Always What They Seem Ambition can be a good thing or a bad thing. Shakespeare uses Banquo to underscore to the audience the theme that things are not always as they seem. We see this through the conversation with Macbeth right after the witches’ first prophecy and through his soliloquy in Act 3 as well as through his presence as a ghost at the banquet. The witches told Banquo that “Things are not always what the seem.”They told Banquo good things in his prophecy to trap him. Banquo said, “But ’tis strange.
In Shakespeare’s A Midsummers Night’s Dream, magic and mystery are key components in the thriving plot through the use of having two worlds, fairy and mortals. In this play the fairies are depicted as whimsical free-spirited lovers of life who seek to help the mortals find true love. However, in the 1999 Hollywood film version of the play the fairies are portrayed as petty irritable party animals who are more mortal like than they should be. This interpretation of the play has lost the original magical and mystery aspect of the original story with the added rendition of scenes and lines in the movie. The movie version sets the scene in a modern setting in an Italian village giving it a different atmosphere.
In The Crucible many seemingly innocent objects and actions are construed as witchcraft or guilty behavior, a good example of this is the poppet made by Mary Warren. The poppet is a symbol of the innocent lives that were lost due to manipulative, selfish acts of self-preservation and attention seeking behaviors. A seemingly innocent child’s doll was used as evidence of witchcraft against Elizabeth Proctor out of jealousy and revenge in the hands of Abigail Williams for her own personal gain. Dancing may also seem like a random or irrelevant subject of interest in any other context, however it is directly associated with the Devil in The Crucible when a group of young girls,
The dark, dense, and mysterious forest scenery creates a dreamlike setting for the nights events and characters. The fairies interactions with one another and interference with the Athenians also adds to this fairy-tale dream. The townsmen and the young lovers affected by the spell and potions believe the night’s events are too strange to be true. Surely a lowly Athenian could not have been doted on by a fairy queen while bearing a donkey head. Besides, a dream seems the only possible explanation for Lysander to not love Hermia and for Demetrius to not love Helena.
In his poems, Yeats brought this vision of different worlds, sometimes describing or just making allusion to this another world, beyond our comprehension. As part of the Irish legends too, it was very common stories about how the fairies can affect our world, influencing humans or bringing then to the other world. This is also the plot of “The Stolen Child”, another poem written by Yeats that rescues this belief. But, different from this one, where the “trick side” of the fairies take place, in “The Hosting of the Sidhe” we can see the seductive one, that calls the hero almost like the sirens in the
