Even though the Sun King never shows up in the play, the King’s officer does not arrest Orgon for treason, as Tartuffe was expecting. On the contrary, he takes the responsibility to arrest Tartuffe by acting as Louis XIV’s mouthpiece, Our monarch–to resolve you in a word Detesting his ingratitude and baseness, Added this horror to his other crimes, And sent me hither under his direction To see his insolence out—top itself, And force him then to give you satisfaction. ( Tartuffe, 5.7. 68-73 ) Louis XIV comes out to be a key figure in Tartuffe because he sets things right, thus giving a happy note to the play. Indeed, The surprising conclusion of Tartuffe is solely due to the King’s intervention.
I—I RUN OFF" (37). This quote is showing where Jim ran away from his masters home and town so that he can free himself and his family. The town is also keeping Huckleberry Finn “captive” to. Throughout the novel Twain talks about how Huckleberry Finn feels trapped in the town and how he wants to escape civilization and his father. “Every little while he locked me in and went down to the store, three miles, to the ferry, and traded fish and game for whisky, and fetched it home and got drunk and had a good time, and licked me.”(Twain 34).
Every man rapidly finds that they both are extortionists, and they choose to cooperate. Not long after their understanding, the most youthful breaks into tears and cases that he is the Duke of Bridgewater and must be approached with deference. After an insightful minute, the most seasoned uses the same strategy and cases to be the Dauphin, the legitimate beneficiary to the French throne. Huck accepts the men are basic scalawags yet chooses not to test them with a specific end goal to keep the peace. The duke and the lord start conspiring, and with new plans, they arrive the flatboat underneath the one-stallion town of Pokeville, which is for all intents and purposes forsook due to a close-by camp meeting.
Huck, through Jim's reaction, learns how someone's race does not determine who they are as a person and also that race does not make someone superior or inferior to someone else. Another example of how Jim teaches Huck a lesson is when Huck sees Jim grieving over missing his family. In the story, Huck says, "He was thinking about his wife and his children, away up yonder, and he was low and homesick;...and I do believe he cared just as much for his people as white folks does for their'n" (Twain 166). In this quotation, Huck learns another important lesson concerning race. Huck previously believes that Jim, as well as other African Americans, do not have sentimental feelings like white folks do.
Understatement is used by both authors to make the readers feel an emotion. In the novel by Mark Twain, after encountering Tom's aunt, Miss Sally, Huck explains how the cylinder head exploded and states that, “No’m. Killed a nigger.” (221) Although Huck unexpectedly helped Jim with his escape at the beginning of the novel which lead the readers to believe he’s different from the southern society, he continues to treat black people as though they are nothing. Once the readers read that, they are in shock because after all Jim and Huck have been through, Huck makes it sound as though Jim does not matter due to him being black.This makes the readers feel as though there’s no hope for change within the people from the southern society. He says
Pap on the other hand, is a mean, non-religious drunk, who could care less for his son. So despite having Pap as a father, Huck matures the most when he leaves and goes off on his own. However, more evidence can be explained. When Jim and Huck are traveling down river, they come across slave hunters. Huck could turn Jim into them and continue on, but he knows deep down that, that wouldn't be the right thing to do and that he would feel guilt for doing so.
Charrington, the shopkeeper, seems like a sweet old man, but surprises Winston by being part of the thought police. When the time came, Winston saw Mr. Charrington for the man he was, "he gave Winston a single sharp glance... And then paid no more attention to him...the alert, cold face of a man..." (pg. 224). Orwell made Winston and the reader believe he was a good man, because how could an old man harm anyone? Yet with this, we learn that no one can outsmart Big Brother.
The king and Duke were big characters in the novel using deception for greed. They only cared about what other people could do for them and what they could gain from other people. When the men learned about a family whose dad had passed away they saw a perfect opportunity for personal gain. They acted like they were the Wilks brothers to get the inheritance money of the man's brothers. ‘“My, way the king's eyes did shine!
His father told him to “remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had” (Fitzgerald 1). In the beginning of the story, Nick reveals how his mid-western family has install in him basic conservative values that need to be respected. As the story progresses, Nick is able to maintain his values, but is challenged because the people with him are immoral. Nick meets with Tom and Daisy who are cheaters and careless. Their attitude allows Nick to realize that he is “one of the few honest people” (Fitzgerald 59).
First of all, when Huck first discovered Jim, he acknowledged “people would call [him] a low down Abolitionist and despise [him] for keeping mum” (Twain 32). Knowing the rest of his community would despise him created an inner argument in his head. Huck grew up without the luxury of a family and home to learn the manners and habits of a normal lifestyle. But the question is whether it really is a luxury or “normal”. He began to understand the distinction between his own rights and wrongs on his own and questioned “the use you learning to do right, when it’s troublesome to do right and aint no trouble to do wrong” (69).
In the novel “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Twain, societies boundaries and expectations are pushed to their limits not only by the actions of the main character, Huck, but in Twain’s controversial writing style. Though the book is often claimed to be offensive, it was actually a parody of the times. Mark Twain was ridiculing the racist tendencies of mid-1800s society and their views of the poor/lower classes. Through reading “Huck Finn”, it is apparent Twain is challenging the reader to rethink society’s rules. To start with, Huck was highly against racism, despite his adoptive family owning slaves and his father being immensely hateful toward them.
