The protagonist of the play is ostracized from his own audience. The severity of the irony in this first assertion and in his sheer ignorance intensifies Iago’s betrayal and solidifies his position as an antagonist in this story. One way that Shakespeare uses his language to amplify the dramatic irony of the situation is by using the words “exceeding” and “all” in Othello’s assertion. These words exaggerate Othello’s confidence in Iago. It is almost as if in this first part of the soliloquy, Othello is still trying to convince himself that Iago’s suspicions could be an accurate reflection of reality.
In his play Antigone, the author, Sophocles, uses irony to illustrate the power of women versus men and to portray the true nature of pride. Sophocles conveys how damaging and destructive being prideful can be, as in his play it leads to complete familial destruction, but also how this pride is caused by the disobedience and defiance of others, as Antigone disobeys Creon, and he does this through the use of irony, leading the viewer to examine his own life in an attempt to rectify any possible ironic situations that could lead to the same, but minimized, consequences as those found in Antigone. In the play’s opening Antigone is seen grieving over Creon 's law, but it is this prideful action that Creon took that will cause the unravelling of his world by Antigone: a simple yet confident woman. This law that Creon created was that Antigone’s brother Polyneices, who died fighting against Thebes, is not to be buried but to be left out in the open, while her other brother Eteocles, who died fighting for Thebes, is to be allowed a proper burial.
Ionesco put his focus on the tragedy of language. In fact he bothers the audience with the disintegration of language, which is one of his main targets of this play. All over The Bald Soprano can be analyzed as a parody where the author mocks about the universal bourgeoisie which, to reveal a dehumanized mankind which became spiritually seen empty. Therefore Ionesco used the language as an important implement to highlight this dehumanization. In concrete the language of the Smiths and Martins is indeed old fashioned and dry adding slogans and a lot of simple expressions.
The author intentionally uses the word tragic to make the case seem petty. It is the author’s aim to exercise the reader in the first instances in the art of satire, and he succeeds. Even when the main character is critiquing the mural, there is still a tone of satire. Anders even manages to inject the sarcasm into the criticism of the robbers, who are holding a gun to his
If this is the case, what can he possibly be ashamed of? Primo Levy has come up with an answer to this question I particularly like and agree with. Indeed, he implies that in his shame, a particular element comes to light. He argues that the source of such a painful feeling rises from the unacceptable existence of the corrupted tribunal, created by men, and responsible for the oppressive, overbearing journey, and inevitable death, of Joseph K. During his final instants, K’s wounded heart experiences the “shame of being a man.”
In Act 1 Scene 3 of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, we experience the unfolding of the murder plot through the eyes of 4 important characters: Cassius, Casca, Cicero, and Cinna. Cassius is a power-hungry Roman senator, who has been plotting against Caesar for quite some time now. He becomes the main conspirator against Caesar and begins gathering people to help him. In this scene, he is convincing Casca that what they are doing is right and continues to unfold his plan to get Brutus to join the cause. Casca on the other hand, is a new recruit to the conspiracy.
Also, the Inspector attempts to expose the fact that Mr. Birling is pretending, this leads to adding pressure onto Mr. Birling making him rethink his false statement. The writer slowing down the pace of the Inspector by making hi more “(slowly)” adds to the factor of intimidation. In addition to that, the Inspector tells Mr. birling about how “public men Mr. Birling have responsibilities as well as privileges”, in this quote the tries to create a sense of guilt to rise in Mr. Birling. He accuses the Birlings individually not as a social group. Priestly tries to make the Inspector make the Birlings feel ashamed and
On the other hand, John Kessel, a writer, thinks the book is about making the readers feel bad for the main character Enderx. Kessel’s evidence that the book is not a work of moral fiction is through the points of the defeated being ignored, intention-based morality failing to make sense, and Mr.Wiggins always receiving the sympathy of the victim.
In the passage from The House of Seven Gables, by Nathaniel Hawthorne, the arrangement, ordering, grouping, and placement of words to form phrases, clauses, and sentences works to strengthen the argument of the narrator. By employing his many syntactic dexterities, the narrator aims to persuade the audience that Judge Pyncheon is guilty. Through his use of syntax, tone, diction, and characterization, The narrator persuades the reader to assume the true nature of Judge Pyncheon. Hawthorne begins the passage with an exclamatory infinitive fragment. This sentence arrives out of nowhere, no previously stated explanation given, and exists to draw attention to a “tran of remark” made about Judge Pyncheon.
Socrates presents himself in front of the jury to defend him on account of four charges. He has many accusers. The three old accusers are Meletus, Anytus, and Lycon. The new accusers charge Socrates for giving rational reasons for the phenomenon that is considered to be creations of the gods and for making a weaker argument trump a strong one: moral corruption. They accuse Socrates because he teaches other people to follow his ways.
I think it would have been more effective if it was told in the view of the narrator. If it was told in a different view, we wouldn’t know the narrator's thought or feelings. Also being told in first person lets the story be told as true as possible instead of having it be told of a speculator. LIke in the email by Sergeant Tina M.Beller, “The Smell Of Fresh Paint”, and the short story “International Reality Consultants,LTD.” by Amy VAughan. Being in the view of the narrator is more effective than being in another point of view.
