Good characters in Macbeth are less in number, and also seem to be characteristically less deeply constructed than the evil or corrupted ones. Everybody has a seed of corruption planted deeply in them, ready to spurt into blossom. Those who let their evil side win, the becoming the true villains acts on these dark drives and commits something morally wrong, like our man character, firstly portrayed as a dashing military genius, Macbeth. When he first receives the prophecies, he is not bothered by the fact that it was spoken by three mysterious, ugly and seemingly evil witches, he actually considered the words of the prophecy.. "Two truths are told,... but what is not" (line 137-152, Pg 27-29). Even tough we see him arguing with himself and feeling disgusted, showing that he is very much humane, and his only fault being way too ambitious.
Winston is not a person someone can admire, but he does deserve sympathy and pity. His vulnerability makes him so very human. If anything is to go about, Winston is an anti-hero, but at the same time, he is nevertheless the protagonist of the story and an "Everyman" type all at the same time. Julia and Winston both believe that at first, that their minds and their hearts are inaccessible. O'Brien then shows them that they are both wrong at the end and that everything Winston did is the worst type of crime.
Throughout the story we witness the heartless killings of the main character, although he feels a little for each killing. This ties it in with one of the themes, “humanity doesn’t have boundaries.” In the words of the author “then when the smoke cleared, he peered across, and utter a cry of joy. His enemy had been hit.” This story leaves us thinking about how some actions may seem important and you have to do, but after the action is done you are filled with regret. Makes you feel that it’s important to decide the consequences after the action has been
In “Enemies,” he assumes that he has broken a social code by hurting Strunk badly and must therefore feel awful, so he reconciles it in a way he deems fair according to his code. Then also in “Friends,” he feels he has broken a social code by not honoring the terms of his pact with Strunk, even though Strunk is the one who waves off the pact. The when he finds out that Strunk died, he is relieved because now the terms of the pact have been honored, instead of just voided. Now in normal circumstances, this would be seen as contrary to what society would deem a normal social code of friendship. But because it is war, Jensen’s actions in breaking the social code are
However, there are just as many differences. One example includes how they feel about one another after the incidents have occurred. Even though Victor did not care for the monster, the creature still glorified and talked highly about him. However, Victor blames everything on the monster and retains the hatred he has towards him. As Victor reflects on the past, he is filled with guilt.
Therefore, when we a take a closer look at the Monster, we can easily recognize that he becomes more dangerous after he is abandoned by everyone and is alienated by society. I believe most of us are proud of our succeed in doing what people have not done before even though the results are not good as we expected. However, as the inventor of the Creature, Victor already does an impossible thing. Instead of being satisfied with his creature, he is disappointed because of its ugly appearance. Obviously, Victor’s attitude indirectly affects to the Creature personalities.
This need for friends has developed into him being evil; where as if he had friends, then he probably would not want to cause pain and misery upon everyone. Without friends, the creature’s hatred has developed against all mankind (101). The morale that can be taken from the creature’s need for friendship is that people cannot judge a book by its cover and listen to what people have to say. People judged and rejected the creature without listening to him. If they listened to the monster, then they could learn the true nature of the being, which would lead to friendship.
Golding “...asks how superior we are to savages and he points to the superficiality of our civilization; indeed it seems to be powerless against the innate brutality of man, against his fear which is in fact against the innate brutality of man, against his fear which is in fact the expression of the evil that pervades the world.” (Michot). Humans “good” is just superficial and isn't truly what they are. Inside they are just savages that are trying to conform to society's norm, but inside they are selfish and evil. Therefore, humans are staying put as long as nothing triggers them, but inside they are full of selfishness waiting to be realized when others aren't paying attention which is quite
They believe that it's better to die and good soul then sell it to something that isn't true, that character who showed truth and sacrifice is Giles Corey. Giles is a vigorous man who stood by the truth and wouldn't quit and concur to the lies that were traveling amongst the air in Salem. For him to stay strongly to his word he was stoned as a result, each time the men would threaten or uragoon him he would simply reply by saying “add more” John Proctor even said that “Giles Cory is a fearsome man”. In The Crucible there is a constant theme of evil and injustice as well as truth and sacrifice in the end though, truth and sacrifice shines over the rest the dramatic act if John Proctor willingly giving his life to stay true to himself is the real game changer. instead of giving in to injustice that was brought upon him he stood strong and gave his
