Creon disagrees strongly and becomes inflamed towards Haemon. Another flaw of Creon is that he is a hypocrite who does not stick to his own words, thus perjuring himself. In his initial speech he says “ - a man who does not take the best advice there is - such a man is the very worst of men and always will be.”. But later in the play Creon doesn’t listen to the advice of those around him, in the most basic sense he is saying that he is the worst of men. These tragic flaws work against him as the story progresses.
This is shown, for example, by a passage from paragraph 2 of “The Hollow Men”, “We whisper together. Are quiet and meaningless.” This suggests how the hollow men collectively feel disregarded because they see that their words have no impact and are essentially meaningless. This kind of thinking contributes to feeling estranged from society. They realize that their lack of power contributes to their lack of ability to communicate. Another example, in paragraph 3 of “Soldier’s Home,” states: “Later he felt the need to talk but no one wanted to hear about it.” This returning soldier, Krebs, feels the need to open up and share with others about his experience, but with no willing or
He wants to refresh his stale, musty life, but isn’t sure where to start. He still wants to leave his mark on the world, even “disturb the universe”, but he is also isolated, nervous, and lacks confidence. He doesn’t trust anyone or anything. Prufrock wants to make a proposal of love, but he is afraid that if he does it will upset the
At the beginning he remains at a distance from much of the action that concerns and affects him. Othello not speaking up on things concerning him shows that he is afraid to speak up for himself and worried about what others think. When Othello comes back from Cyprus he stands apart from Cassio, Iago, and Desdemona’s discussion. Othello not including himself in the discussion shows that he doesn’t feel comfortable around the others because he is so insecure about the differences between them. Othello goes off and secretly marries Desdemona at the beginning of the play.
The question being asked is if Nick Carraway an honest narrator. This question is being asked due to mixed emotions of this particular narrator. At times it feels like Nick is holding back his honest opinion because he doesn 't want to hurt anyone or just because Nick doesn 't want to say the harsh truth. This affects the story at times such as Nick knowing about Tom 's mistress and never telling Daisy about her. Which in the end resulted in a very unfitting demise for Gatsby and Myrtle.
Just like Amrith, there are cases in which I feel helpless, almost useless. That feeling when all hope is loss and your thoughts take over making you just want to sleep and forget everything. In this case, when “[Amrith] felt [a] familiar inner blackness come in and sweep him out, like a current… he [felt] helpless against its power” (Selvadurai 32), I related it to when times I feel so counterproductive. For example, when I fail to accomplish a task while seeing others capable of doing the same thing, it makes me feel useless and that I do not have a place in the world. This links to the text since Amrith and I feel incompetent, being overpowered by our own thoughts, when in reality it’s only our minds strengthening the belief that we cannot become successful by our own means.
At the beginning of the story, Neddy is disillusioned and unable to comprehend that he has moved and that he is experiencing financial problems. However, by the end of the story, it is apparent that he has been in a state of self-denial.” Not only does the Lucinda River lead Neddy to self-realization, it reveals to the reader the state of denial Neddy was in. Neddy’s suppressed memories eventually reveal themselves, although he did not want them to do so. Neddy’s attempts to run away from his problems, ultimately fail and leave him outside his house, in tears. Although there are many different varieties of figurative language found in "The Swimmer", imagery may be one of the most important.

It puts one in an uncomfortable position and also a questioning position but then again emotion before getting to know. Robert is blind which means that he doesn’t have the ability of sight. That is why he touches her face he is unable to see it so instead of describing sight he describes feeling. Compensating for a way to give complementary and the poem is to describe the greatness of him. The conversations between the two of them for the narrator this is a turn for the burn.
