I cannot think he will listen to another.” Reverend Hale pleads with Goody Proctor “ Let him give his lie.” Hale no longer believes in the witch trials. Everything Reverend Hale came to Salem for now no longer means anything to him. By this point Reverend Hale, among others, has become fed up with the pretense and falseness of ‘The Salem Witch Trials’ and wants nothing more than for it to be over. (page 84, act four, Miller, Arthur The Crucible: A Play in Four Acts, Viking Press 1953) “ HALE, quickly to Danforth: Excellency, it is enough he confess himself. Let him sign it, let him sign it.” Reverend Hale begs Judge Danforth to be
Fate plays a large role in carrying along the story and characters until the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. It pushes characters against their beliefs and reasoning, it threads together the story in unlikely and convenient ways, and is always one step ahead of the characters throughout the entirety of the story. Fate is sometimes mentioned and criticized by characters in the play; however, it continues to shape their actions and decisions despite their slight awareness of its presence. A prime example of this control is shown when Romeo gets a bad feeling about going into the Capulet party. “I fear, too early; for my mind misgives some consequence yet hanging in the stars...” (I.IV.391).
Hamlet and Ophelia “This was sometime a paradox, but now the time gives it proof. I did love you once… I loved you not” (3.1.114,119). Confusion clouds the audience’s judgement reading this quote from Hamlet. His paradox insinuates that he is insane and truly did not love her. Contrary to belief though, this quote was a way to set his “mousetrap” and force her to be in the background of his grand scheme.
There's no coming back or questions asked because they won't tell you. Everyone always thought the witches were weird because they were woman's that look like men. But it was Macbeth that choice to go down that pathway. The prophecies was never true in the first place. The witches just wanted the king to be dead without there hands getting
In Much Ado About Nothing, wit was the down fall to many of the characters, but it was also used to provide the audience with comedic relief. Beatrice‘s and Benedick’s pride in their cleverness, Claudio’s assumptions and gullibleness, and Dogberry’s lack or wit and intelligence lead to the misunderstandings and Discoveries throughout the play (Dennis 224). Dennis is saying that each character had a fatal flaw that Shakespeare highlighted by having something terrible or having something ironic happen to them. This shows how he used the elements and levels of wit to captivate the audience by leaving the characters blind to what was really going on. The audience knew the plan for Beatrice and Benedick, but their own confidence in their wit betrayed them.
When the friar says this, he is warning Romeo that what he is viewing as all good may turn out to be all bad. Romeo is also impulsive. Since Romeo is a dreamer, he allows his emotions to directly influence his decisions and that makes him impulsive. Once Romeo feels something, he usually acts upon the feeling without thinking of the consequences. This is seen when the day after Romeo and Juliet meet he wants to be married to her.
But, if Twain told the story from the perspective of a character whom Huck portrays negatively, the reader could realize that his or her motives are similar to those of Huck. The protagonist lies about his identity for similar reasons as the King and the Duke: self-preservation. When the two men first reveal their “rightful” truths, Huck knows they are lying about their identities from the books he has read. Throughout this episode, Huck and Jim learn that the King and the Duke’s reasoning for lying is to acquire enough money and respect for their survival. When they performed their “Shakespearean Revival”, the Duke instructed his
He is unfavourable of his name getting defamed in the town even when he has seen the girls and Tituba attempting to perform witchcraft: Later in the novel when he suggests a stop on the witch hunts to Danforth, he is afraid that if he reveals too much, he would himself get accused of being associated with the devil. Because he is respected solely for his strong belief in the religion he cannot afford to lose his reputation. John Proctor is a key character in the play whose reputation gets overshadowed by the extent of his internal conflicts. While he is a man of firm morals and beliefs, his extra-marital affair is the cause of the sin he has to carry upon himself. In addition to his internal conflict which is his guilt of adultery, the fact that he is forced to reveal his affair in order to prove his wife’s innocence, haunts him.
However when he confesses, Abigail turns against him and accuses Proctor of being a witch. Now this man faces a new dilemma and wrestles with his conscience debating whether to save himself from the gallows with a confession to witchcraft, which he did not commit. Hale and the judges pressure him into confessing to a lie, even though he comes close to doing do. He cannot bring himself to
