Inigos father refused to take such a low offer for his masterpiece.The count then brutally killed Inigo's father. After The count slain his father, the
Comparisons and contrasts play a huge role in literary works, especially between characters. Not only do they show similarities and differences between various characters, but they also bring out specific qualities that make a character unique and help guide the readers towards a common conclusion. In the popular Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf, the protagonist and hero, Beowulf, is emphasized for his extraordinary greatness. Throughout his story, he, as an advocate of good, encounters many opposing forces in the form of other characters. In a society where heroism and bravery are honored as essential aspects of culture, the contrasting values of these characters, or foils, help define Beowulf as the model hero. He becomes often associated with the image of a perfect, almighty warrior, able to prove his fame in any situation. However, the foil characters can do more than purely illuminate his positive values. With the contrast they provide, Beowulf’s faults are revealed and criticized as well. Although foil characters often point out the greatness of Beowulf, they also serve to highlight Beowulf’s flaws, teach him lessons, and allow him to change, as seen in his interactions with Unferth, Hrothgar, and the dragon.
The imagery Patrick Henry utilizes in his speech emphasizes the perception he has of commencing war with Britain. In this quote, "Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received?" (P. 264), he exemplifies the feelings flowing through the Colonies during that time. Henry uses imagery to describe the deceitful British government giving the complaints of the oppressed Colonists a sly smile before brushing them aside which greatly decrypts the image the representatives had of the British.
