In this scene, the demonic imagery Brabantio uses serves as a harsh contrast between his impression of Othello as “Damn’d” and Othello’s actual calm and noble nature. By structuring the encounter in such a manner, Shakespeare utilizes the shocking nature of the demonic imagery to highlight how Brabantio’s impressions have deceived him into falsely believing Othello must have enchanted his daughter, when in reality this was not the case. Thus further developing the theme of how people’s impressions of others can be deceptive. This use of demonic imagery occurs again in Act I scene ii, when Brabantio pleads his case to the Duke of Venice. Brabantio states “It is a judgment maim'd and
Also she did not want to leave any possibility of revenge that the children could take on killing of their father’s wife. Medea’s actions are justified by her emotions as they are difficult thing to control at times. She is also raised in a different culture so she did not conform to the values of Corinth and did not easily accept that Jason married another woman. For the male audience, the evil deeds of Medea confirm their belief that women should be uneducated and kept at home. Medea was a divine character.
Othello has his own view of his racial identity. He is aware of how he is different to the other Venetians and recognizes his role as an outsider. He knows people view him differently, yet he never seems struck by it. In Act One while he addresses the noblemen of Venice, he reveals his barbarian origins by saying that he is “rude ... in speech, and little bless’d with the soft phrase of peace.” Even though he is never “rude” in his speech, he uses his eloquence to persuade the noblemen to view him with pity. He is well aware of the fact that he is different, yet the thought does not struck him.
Having seen how Javert has served legally, attempted the best he could while under the government’s thumb, and even how he tried to stop Valjean under the false interpretation of what he stood for, we can see that Javert is in no way a villain. In fact, Les Miserable’s true villains are the horrible Thenardiers, as well as the corrupt government of the time. Both Valjean and Javert are stuck in a miscommunication loop of what is good and evil. Javert is not a villain in the novel, but rather a warning. Although all may seem grim, his silence did not solve anything around him.
Significance of Reputation in Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Robert Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde illustrates the significance of concealing your secrets and desires in order to maintain a flawless reputation. He creates distinctive characters with various reputations and contrasts their abilities in retaining one. Stevenson emphasizes this through Hyde’s actions, when portraying Utterson’s flawless reputation, the contrasting vulnerability to desires between Utterson and Jekyll and the creation of Hyde. As a man of pure evilness, Hyde creates disruption through his actions. His first appearance in the novella associates him with a crime of abuse.
The act of giving away money is a selfless act and someone who is ambitious will not be philanthropic. If Caesar was truly ambitious, he would not give his money away to the common folk’s community. This phrasing of the sentence like a question, makes the audience reflect and think about whether that is really true, Since Antony talked about Caesar’s noble acts before, the townsfolk are doubting that Caesar is ambitious. This lures to the pathos of the audience because the rhetorical question pulls on their conscience. Their conscience is questioning whether the murder of Caesar is justifiable, since he was not at all ambitious according to Antony.
With Caesar being so arrogant he believed that nothing bad would have ever happen to him, but if he noticed but the signs of what was to come in the Ides of March and how suspicious Cassius, Brutus, and the other congressmen were then he may of not come to a fatal death. Caesar’s hamartia was his downfall because of his arrogance which lead to little respect for others, how ignorant he was, and his small attention to details. The first noticeable hamartia Caesar reveals about himself is his arrogance in that nothing bad will ever happen to him. When the soothsayer calls out to Caesar, “Beware the Ides of March” (1.2.18), while Caesar is in public with a crowd and his wife. Caesar is curious to what the soothsayer has to say, so Caesar calls to him to come closer.
Even though Macbeth is a generally decent character, he still has the capability to influence people and tell them what to do using fair is foul. Once Lady Macbeth convinces him to kill Duncan, he says that her "false face must hide what the false heart doth know," (1.7.95-96). He is telling her to put on a front and pretend that all is well, when in reality they both know that they are liars and
“‘Your wife doesn’t love you, said Gatsby. ‘She’s never loved you. She loves me.’” (F. Scott Fitzgerald 138) In this example, Gatsby was shouting at Tom and putting pressure on Daisy by pushing her into this argument about her affair. However, fundamentally the whole thing is related to Gatsby’s arrogance. He wants Daisy as a symbol of his victory like he reached everything he wanted.
Brutus would have been fine if Cassius never talked to him Cassius is what made him such a bad person and brain wash him. Brutus fell to peer pressure if he would have never talked to Cassius about killing Caesar or Brutus becoming a King Brutus would have never stabbed Caesar and Brutus would never have been considered a bad guy because he is not one and he would have never been one. Brutus is a good guy and hopefully this made the people that thought he was a bad guy make them think he’s the good guy he has always been. Brutus was never was a horrible person he did what he was supposed to do and act like he was supposed to act he wasn’t a bad guy never was hopefully this made you Explicator. Spring94, Vol.
