Winston also resents the rule that there can be no love in Oceania, and leaps at the chance to break it. When Julia hands him the note saying “I love you”, he states, “the desire to live had welled up inside him, and the taking of minor risks suddenly seemed stupid” (2.1.109). Winston is no longer interested in his previously small acts of rebellion. He wants to deepen his actions and carry out a force much greater than simply writing in a journal. Winston enjoys the fact that he’s becoming a rebel, and takes great pride in the fact that he is
This is courageous because the suitors only cared about getting Penelope and if they cared so much about that why would they want Odysseus to come home to ruin their chances? It was also courageous when him and Telemachus fought off the remaining suitors because they were both greatly
At first glance of the story, it can be easy to mistake Harrison himself as the breakaway hero. After all, he is first described as "a genius and an athlete, is under-handicapped, and should be regarded as extremely dangerous" (Vonnegut 197). Not to mention his parents are two of the main characters, and this idea brings the "child saving the parents (along with everyone else) in need" trope to life (think Harry Potter avenging the deaths of his parents). Harrison 's looks and sheer strength were said to have awed those of even Thor, the god of thunder (198). What makes him unable to be the hero, however, is his selfishness and delusional attitude.
It is evident from the beginning of the poem that Beowulf is meant to be the hero. He is strong, brave, and courageous but is also boastful and seeks only fame and glory. These characteristics are examples of things that could be related to hyper masculinity and are not necessarily desired in a hero today. In the quote “They have seen my strength for themselves, Have watched me rise from the darkness of war, Dripping with my enemies' blood. I drove Five great giants into chains, chased All of that race from the earth.
In life, perception and reality rarely parallel; similarly, this idea is true for Winston in George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984. Winston 's unyielding beliefs that a rebellion - due to Big Brother’s “ all seeing manifestation” (“1984” 15) - is crucial is fostered by two men Winston believed to be trustworthy: O’Brien and Charrington. However, in the end they betray him as they expose Winston as a traitor to the Party and Big Brother. From the beginning of the literary work, Winston opposes Big Brother and is in favor of a rebellion. Winston strongly feels that “if there is any hope, it lies in the proles” (Orwell 69).
Even though Desdemona is completely innocent of infidelity, Iago keeps planting evidence to create doubt in Othello’s mind. Since Othello believes that all men are as noble and honest as him, he believes everything Iago is telling him. Although Othello still loves Desdemona, he warns that when his love runs out, all hell will break loose. Several lines later, Othello comes to the conclusion stating, “I am abused, and my relief/ Must be to loath her.” (3.3.267-268) This scene is explaining that he has made his decision, and his love for Desdemona has run out. Othello is so hurt and in a fit of rage, and passion he’s not thinking clearly or logically.
Another example is when Iago state, “What, man, there are ways to/ recover the general again” (2.3.259-260). In this quote Iago draws Cassio into believing there are ways to his position back on Othello’s good side again. Both quotes show Iago using his credibility to get on the good sides of both characters, increasing his reputation as a good friend/guy. Due to this increase, Iago can activate his plan with little to none suspicion and Iago can also manipulate Othello easily. Therefore, without the increase in Iago’s reputation and the trust others have in him, Iago wouldn’t have been able to accomplish his plan of bringing Othello to believe Desdemona is sleeping with Cassio which would’ve changed how Othello reacts.
He needed to stand up and tell the world his thoughts. He needed to tell individuals how corrupt Oceania surely was; however, he could not do it. He could not because of the punishment that would be waiting for him. He knew regardless of what he would say, admit, or do in defense, he would in any case be another political renegade quieted by death. He realized that political rebellion was the most extreme disobedience upon the government.
Brutus is without a doubt the most noble character in this play. Nonetheless, his impeccable sense of morality also blindfolds him to other people’s sordid motives and makes him easy to be manipulated. Indeed, Brutus is easily manipulated by Cassius in Act 1, Scene 2. In hope to convince Brutus to join the conspirators, Cassius says “Men at some time are masters of their fates: The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings” (1.2.150-152). As a result, Brutus starts to believes that it is his job to murder Caesar, as he says in Act 2, Scene 1: “It must be by his death: and for my part, I know no personal cause to spurn at him, but for the general” (2.1.14-16).
Without Friar Lawrence, Romeo would be hopeless. Romeo isn’t good at decision making and he knows it. Romeo’s personality of a being a fantasist, being impulsive, and being selfish often lead to this crummy decision making. Friar Lawrence, however, is excellent at planning and making decisions. Although time in his profession undoubtedly helped him learn how to plan and make good decisions, Friar Lawrence’s personality also contributes to these skills..
