The tone helps to make him seem remorseful and accepting of a punishment. He also claimed to have learned valuable lessons from what had occurred, such as, “I have learned to understand that unfettered ambition can destroy one’s innate awareness of ethical principles” (305). The former Nazi official had also said this in his later life to show that he understood the dangers of power and control. Speer said
17/PELA/034 Psychological Disorientation of Willy Loman in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman The famous dramatist Arthur Miller’s work conveys a deeply moral outlook whereby all individuals have a responsibility both to themselves and to the society in which they must live. Through his drama, he constantly provokes the social conscience of his audiences. Miller’s drama tries to create a better society in which everyone can live. He explores the demands of moral values and brings out important individual and social needs, recognizing the balance between the two. Miller attacks the false values of American society by using Willy Loman’s collapse.
This first essay that I read helped me understand the psychological struggle and symbolic meaning of the story. Kachur claims that vital information from the narrator is omitted because it seems not important to readers, but that same information is the one that describes the motives and the challenges presented by the author. This essay really caught my attention in ways that I would never imagine. Kachur argues that the narrator obsession is based in “father-on-son incest”. He supports his idea with three possible hypothesis: first, the narrator was a victimized child that resulted with some psychotic symptoms; second, the narrator is re-enacting his abuse to make the old man feel what he suffered; and for last, the old man is a victim of the narrator´s threat of incest.
In Voltaire’s novel, Candide, he tells the story of his character named Candide and how he travels throughout the world and suffers through some very unfortunate events. Voltaire uses his novel to satirize many religious and philosophical beliefs that he perceives to be wrongs in his world. At the end of the book, Voltaire offers some suggestion, influenced by his own perspectives of the world, for how people can handle the corrupt happenings in society. At the beginning of Candide, the namesake of the book lived in the German province of Westphalia at the home of Baron Thunder-ten-tronckh. Candide had a tutor named Dr. Pangloss who taught him that the world that they were living in was “the best of all possible worlds” (Voltaire 20), meaning that everything that happened in the world was for the best.
At the beginning of his analysis of Benjamin, Martel correctly suggests that 'when we leave out his [Benjamin's - D.L.] theology, we leave out the core of his philosophy as well.' Thus, Martel shows that he is interested precisely in the politico-theological debate which was led and partly initiated by both Schmitt and Benjamin. He turns to Origin of German Tragic Drama, the text in which Benjamin explicitly refers to Schmitt's Political Theology and to which Schmitt himself will later refer in Hamlet or Hecuba. According to Martel, Benjamin is very critical of contemporary commodity fetishism which is still here with us.
Uncle Tom’s Cabin, the world famous book about slavery, depicts the tragedy of the main character whose name is Tom. Generally speaking, the book creates an atmosphere to show the darkness of slavery and appeals people to fight against slavery together. Stowe, the author of the book, has strong political objectives that influence the style and formal aspects of the novel a lot. She creates good characters to spread her ideas perfectly instead of making simple ones. From my perspective, I consider the politics of the novel making up for the disadvantages of its literary shortcomings.
The difference is that Nietzsche addresses the master-slave relationship directly, while Shelly’s novel enforced it in an indirect way, by narrating a story of a slave and the one who created it. In both texts, all of the obstacles that the characters face are somehow related to their master-slave relationships. Both of the stories showed that the slave is often the one who chooses to be weak, as he is always in need of a master to control his life. Also, each text shows how impossible life could be if people were all treated equal, for difference is very essential. Life could be just, but never can it treat people equally.
He is associated with the conflict perspective and view society as arena of struggle, conflict and competing interests (Giddens, 1997). The other great man Max Weber was a German scholar whose writings covered the field of economics, law, philosopher and comparative history as well as sociology. He was associated with the interpretive perspective and believes that social behavior could not be adequately understood by looking at the large structures but the smaller groups should be studied in order to uncover the meanings underlying human social action (Mustapha, 2013). Both men saw the importance of understanding the world around them but understood it from different points of
Short story: Analysis Essay. The short story addresses the issues of “othering” and greed in our society and the world as a whole. It is based on the words of R. Eric saying that if one lets greed grow stronger than the compassion one has for others, there will be suffering (not only upon the victims of the greedy but ultimately upon the greedy themselves). These are the words that Professor Baobab, a character in the story, reiterates to Bernie (the main character) when asked why he helped him. This essay aims to discuss the literary contents of the short story; give underlying meanings, explain phrases and put into context anything that might have otherwise been taken out of context.
“Man Jeete Jag Jeet” in Japji Sahib by Guru Nanak is a world famous teaching of controlling over the desires of mind lest one gets corrupted by them. It means, one can win the world but one cannot easily win over the mind/ desires. Therefore, a man who has controlled his mind is greater than the one who has conquered the world. The characters – Marlow and Kurtz – in Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness display such contrast. The present study is aimed at understanding the symbolic darkness in the novella in the light of above given line by Guru Nanak.
