Iago expresses this fact by saying “I thought you had received some bodily wound. There is more sense in that than in reputation” (2.3.243-4). He makes it seem as if he actually cares for Cassio when he clearly does not care for anyone’s well being and is trying to downplay Cassio’s demotion, but not for compassion for this man, just to entangle him further in his web of deception. Iago’s plan is to get Cassio demoted by getting him involved with Desdemona. However, it seems that once Cassio is legitimately wounded, he then rises above his previous status as Lieutenant to General, which puts “sense” into worrying about a “bodily wound”.
Lastly, Iago hurts Cassio for the last time, possibly hitting the final blow by telling his audience of Cassio’s oaths and inappropriate language. Iago then stops harming Cassio and tells, “More of this matter cannot I report.” in order to keep his motif of trust. To keep his true intentions discrete he blames all of this behaviour on a man’s fatal flaw. “But men are men; the best sometimes forget. As men in rage strike those that wish them best (128).” Iago phrases his sentence in a way such that his audience does not forgive Cassio for his actions and learn to value Iago’s words as more wise and unbiased given that Iago essentially spoke in a way that seemed
Is lying always bad? The real truth is that sometimes lying is the only answer to fix what life throws at people. The lies that Huckleberry Finn told with the intent of saving Jim are justifiable. While on the other hand, the duke and the dauphin angered the readers every time these con men opened their mouths. What makes a lie good or bad?
Macbeth is about to do a horrible deed. He is going to kill his friend and his king. The trust and the loyalty have been broken . People today would lynch themselves for dollars . We would sell out those who mean the most to us just get money or just to say I'm on top.In act 1 scene 7 Macbeth said “ Besides, this Duncan Hath borne his faculties so meek, hath been So clear in his great office, that his virtues Will plead like angels, trumpet-tongued, against The deep damnation of his taking-off “ .(4).
At the beginning of the story the Knight is lost to the idea of men and women being on equal ground, which is shown by his treatment towards the maiden. The King demonstrates his understanding of the balance of power between him and his Queen by letting her have control over the Knight’s fate. Towards the end of the story through his punishment set forth by the Queen, the Knight comes to realize the importance of the power of equality. During Arthurian times Knight’s lived by a code of chivalry, where they were expected to honor women and stand up for the weak. However, this “Lusty Liver” (59) lived by his own code and
Strangely enough, even though Courtland has proven his immorality repeatedly, Eddie still has compassion upon him: “I didn 't even like Courtland, he had tried to kill me 一and still I felt tears running down my cheeks” (358). He takes pity on Courtland when he contracts the Mildew, and by flashing the Lincoln, Eddie shows kindness even to those who have deeply hurt him. In the end, it does not matter whether or not Courtland will be prefect or his wealth level because titles and money have its
Montresor states from the beginning that he wants revenge for the fact that Fortunato had insulted him; along with all the injuries he had endured. He wanted justice for himself. Along with being damned to bring forth revenge upon Fortunato, Montresor felt as though he had been betrayed. As stated by Poe, “It must be understood that neither by wood nor deed had I given
The qualities of a good King are not necessarily the same qualities of a good man. In Act II, while dealing with a traitor from the inside King Henry responds passionately “he that tempered thee bade thee stand up, gave thee no instance why thou shouldst do treason…oh hast thou with jealousy infected the sweetness of affiance... I will weep for thee, for this revolt of thine methinks is like another fall of man- their faults are open. Arrest them to the answer of the law, and go acquit them of their practices.”(II.II. 118-145).
In Paul’s Case, the main character Paul embodies the true characteristics of narcissism. Paul exhibits greed, entitlement and he places himself above all others. Because of Paul’s narcissism, he treated others with disrespect and was often critical of other’s. Paul’s narcissism is so debilitating that he is unable to find satisfaction in anything and that is ultimately what drives him to commit suicide. Could it have been that even though Paul presented himself as a superior, important person that people should be envious of, he was actually self-consciousness with a self-esteem as fragile as glass?
Montresor is so consumed by his hatred for Fortunato that he deliberately creates a plot to murder Fortunato to seek justice for himself and his family name. In order to convey this to the audience Poe uses foreshadowing, suspense, and exposition to reveal the intentions of Montresor. The first literary tool Poe uses in order to reveal the intentions of Montresor is exposition. Poe uses exposition in the beginning of, “The Cask of Amontillado,” in order to get the rest of the story in motion. Poe writes, “Fortunato had hurt me a thousand times and I had suffered quietly.
This means that the sinners have to be born again to be in the kingdom. Moreover, Edwards had a powerful impact on his puritan audience of his puritan audience because of his use of a complex figurative language in the passage. In paragraph 2, it states that “They are now the objects of that very same anger and wrath of God, which is expressed in the torments of hell”. It also states that “Is not at present very angry with them as he is with many miserable creatures now tormented in hell”. Theses quotes reveal that God power is fear so that it can shut the sinners down and destroy sinners who made him angry.
