Despite the several flaws found through John Proctor's role in Arthur Miller's, "The Crucible" my analysis of Proctor's character reasons him to be a good man in the end. Within the play, John Proctor analyzes his past actions, realizing that his affair with Abigail Williams, deeply wounds his connection with his wife, Elizabeth Proctor. It is explained within the story by the author, that John Proctor's strong personality stems from his guilt. The speaker states, "He is a sinner, a sinner not only against the moral fashion of the time but against his own vision of decent conduct" (Miller, 255).
This, however, is shown to be flawed in the text Benito Cereno, written by Herman Melville. Melville demonstrates that a character who embodies this characteristic of being distanced through his compassion, kindness, and intelligence is prone to misjudging situations and responding poorly to them, thereby disproving Bloom’s claim. Bloom insists that in order to be a good person, then they should adopt the characteristics of being compassionate and kind as well as intelligent. Captain Delano has all of these attributes in the way Bloom has defined them. These terms have many meanings and Bloom defined each of them uniquely to fit his argument.
In doing so, he demonstrated his beliefs. Another notable aspect of his political views was his nationalism. He famously said that 'We become strongest, I feel, when we have no friends upon whom to lean, or to look for moral guidance', referring to the support afforded to Italy through alliances. On a more personal note, Mussolini was both paranoid and protective, as Clara Petacci, his mistress, wrote in her diary. He spied on his mistress to ensure that 'Your precious little body shall only tremble for me,', and referred to himself while talking to her as 'your giant'.
Him being so confident in himself was his downfall because even though he realized that marrying them was a bad decision, he still tried to fix things These events also help with the case of the Friar being more like a villain in this play. People may argue that Romeo and Juliet were under the effect of fate. Romeo and Juliet sure do. “O’ I am fortunes fool!” Romeo believes he is under the effect of fate here because he believes he was in the wrong place at the wrong time which eventually caused him
His impression on the law shifts in the climax as compared to his views in the genesis of Anthem. This shift in thought creates a prodigious contrast when in reference to Equality’s morality and the morality that his brothers share. The disparity is evident. Equality 7-2521 is an individual who clings onto his own understanding and intellect. He may live in a society of collectivism and a demand for obedience, but he favors his values.
The misunderstanding and disobedience that occurs in the play due to their reluctance to understand each other causes many conflicts and disorientation between the core character of the play. For example, in the end of the play, Friar Lawrence admits his wrongdoing and utters "Miscarried by my fault, let my old life / Be sacrificed, some hour before his time, / Unto the rigor of severest law." (5.6. 267-269). In essence, his false hope of peace among the two families results in the death or tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.
He does this by showing the lack of common sense that some use when influenced by a group. The main character who does this fluctuation in his thinking and ideology is Hale. Throughout the play he changes in three important ways: he changes from a haughty clergyman into a humble common man, he goes from accusing people and suspecting them, to trying to save them, and Hale in the play at the beginning believes that man is morally good, but by the end he realizes that all are hopelessly sinful by
Othello made a bad choice by running off at night to marry a woman he didn’t truly know. Thoughtout the whole play Othello was making bad judgements. The worst one he made was trusting Iago with such little to go on. Othello watched in act 4 scene 1 where Iago was talking to Cassio as a great friend, trying to get Cassio to “talk” about the affair with Desdemona. If Iago can break a best friend bond why wouldn’t he lie to
The author Richards of "Review/Theater; Amid Pain and Din, A Mighty Medea," describes the male characters as arrogant, condescending and egotistical. During the play Medea, the males are characterized as only interested in what will give them power and they are not concerned with the feelings of the women or Medea in the play. “The male characters in "Medea" don 't come off well. But then they never have, and Alistair Elliot 's stripped-for-action translation of the play further emphasizes [Euripides] ' feminist sympathies. Either the men are smug and patronizing (like John Turner 's Creon) or else they 're smug and self-serving (like Mr. [Tim Oliver Woodward] 's Jason).
