His eye would trouble me no more.” (Poe,1843). He had final killed to old man and he sounds kinda guilty. The significance of the narrator being a delusional mad man is that you can change the way that you look at the story. One more thing before we leave. What if the narrator was a calculated killer.
The reader can see he is confused and anxious when he speaks this quote “ Villains! I shrieked, dissemble no more! I admit the deed!-- tear up the planks! Here here!-- It is the beating of his hideous heart!” ( Poe 24) This quote explains that he admits to murdering the old man after guilt overcomes him. The narrator thinks that if he admits to the deed he will be free from the guilt which he mistakes for the beating of the old man’s heart .
At the beginning of the play, Hamlet’s depression is because of the loss of his father and Gertrude’s marriage. But we can see after he finds out about the truth, he is forced to act because of his morality beliefs. The battle in Hamlet’s tragedy occurs in a dynamic society that is created by opposing forces that contradict with each other and Hamlet is a philosophical prince who blames the court for impunity, injustice, and murder; and all of these problems prevents him from being a part of court’s social life and he becomes depressed. Hamlet’s deep depression effects on his behaviors until he even doesn’t act like prince and becomes mad. His madness effect on his judgment and makes him to become obsessed with the death; even he sees death as the only way to take revenge.
One example of symbolism is that the old man’s eye resembles the narrator’s anger. “--but I found the eye always closed; and so it was impossible to do the work; for it was not the old man who vexed me; but his Evil Eye.” This quote shows how the narrator is not able to harm the old man until he gets a glimpse of his cold eye. This build suspense because now the reader knows that one the old eye is visible, the murder will commence. Another example of symbolism in “Tell-Tale Heart” is that the old man’s beating heart symbolizes the narrator’s guilt. “I swung the chair upon which I had been sitting, and grated it upon the boards, but the noise arose all over and continuously increased.
Due to the atrocities Heathcliff experienced at the hands of Hindley, he feels the need to punish his nephew in retaliation for the offences of the boy 's father.Consequently, Heathcliff follows in Hindley 's footsteps, further prolonging his own sorrow as his need for retribution continues to soar. After robbing Hareton of a proper education, Heathcliff wrongfully takes pride in his damning decisions that will lead to a lifetime of hardships for Hareton. He delights in informing Nelly that Hareton is a "fool" by his very design, shaping him into an illiterate and tactless boy just as Hindley had done to him. Furthermore, Heathcliff relishes in the knowledge that Hareton 's senselessness is due to his influence, not because the boy was born as an ill-witted individual. Holding the boy back from reaching his full potential would not be as satisfying for Heathcliff if there was little potential to begin with.
Proctor, however, is an example of Miller 's definition of a tragic hero as " the presence of a character who is ready to lay down his life, if need be, to secure one thing, his sense of personal dignity" (Miller, tragedy 4). Proctor embodies this definition because his anger leads him to be free. He has the courage to reveal his anger at Salem and the courage to reveal his affair with Abigail when he tells judge Danforth that he is raising "a whore" over heaven ( II iv 110). His wrath at this evil Salem makes him believe that God has abandoned this place "I say, I say , that God is dead" ( III i 119), so the only thing to direct him is his will to do the right thing, that he can not embrace a lie to save himself. Thus, his
Fortunately for Trevor, the gang appreciates “possibilities about his brooding silence” (1)1 and accepts him as a member. Additionally, the “odd quality of danger, of the unpredictable” (1)1 that he projects intimidates them. Thanks to this quality and his silence Trevor is perceived as tough. When Blackie laughs at Trevor’s plan to destroy Old Misery’s house, he stops abruptly “daunted by [Trevor’s] serious implacable gaze”. (3)1 Even Blackie, the gang’s leader, is intimidated.
He mentally tortures the Reverend and all with glee. It is clearly made known that after he completes his deed he will have no point of living. Chillingworth has become like Satan himself, living only to accuse his brothers of folly while paying no attention to himself; ”A mortal man, with once a human heart, has become a fiend for his especial torment!”(.). Dimmesdale, on the other hand, is a broken man. Once driven by passion to break the law he held most dear, he is now a shell filled with guilt.
Furthermore, they carry their awful faces in their bags whence they travel; this journey begins in the mind and thus it terminates when the Rex dies who the ill-meaning killers have warned. People ask themselves the questions by the numbers; they see the common rhyme when every man answers the way he prefers. And, each woman loves her man dearly unless he sends her straight to the grave, whereas men and women become surprised by the manners which nature plays its tricks. Hence, when our eyes meet, I realise that I am a simple-minded person, and I lift my head and behold the sun and the brooding clouds. Nevertheless, would you answer my question if I confided in you the logic of the coinciding
