During the carnival season, Montresor encounters Fortunato and decides to implement his plan carefully not to arouse Fortunato’s suspicions through irony.

Shakespeare is showing that “ cannot commit such crime without undergoing terrible inner torment and triggering self-defeating behavior”( Paris) shows that it is the less external consequences of his crime than the internal deterioration. Macbeth went through so much pressure to do the crime he later regretted and suffered and battles with himself and his paranoia. Lady Macbeth only saw the effects of blood visually she did not see how the blood stain was eating Macbeth from the inside. Once again Lady Macbeth is pushing Macbeth to forget about what happened and move on, the murder does not affect Lady Macbeth but the way Macbeth is acting shows that he was never ready to commit this
1. What does Montresor do to guarantee that his victim will allow him to commit the crime? He made sure that Fortunato was drunk because it was Mardi Gras and he wouldn’t have the right mindset to automatically get that Montresor was leading him to his death. Also, he knew that Fortunato took pride in his knowledge of wine, so Montresor would easily be able to lead him into the vaults. 2.
By using phrases such as “the cold is nothing” and “Luchresi knows nothing about wines,” Poe further emphasizes Fortunato’s foolish, narcissistic character, since Fortunato is saying that he is the only one worthy to taste the Amontillado. Because of his carelessness and pride, Fortunato blindly follows Montresor to his palace, falling right into his trap. This is situational irony, because the reader does not expect Montresor to “prevent” Fortunato from going, since he wants revenge on him. However, despite being told not to proceed, Fortunato still insists on going simply to prove that he is superior to Luchresi. In “The Cask of Amontillado,” Edgar Allan Poe uses situational irony to express the theme that when people are foolish and carelessly make decisions, it can lead to their own

That is where Gatsby made all his money, not from owning a chain of drug stores.
In A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams, themes of insanity and fanciful realities are shown. Three main characters portray the quality of insanity, but only Blanche is aware of her self-delusion. Stella and Stanley are more out of touch with reality than Blanche because Stella does not realize the extremes of her abusive relationship, she also would rather retreat into a world of fantasy in order to avoid reality, and Stanley is only himself when he is intoxicated.

Oedipus’ impetuous behavior is another trait that eventually leads him to his downfall. While having a rash and short-tempered manor it seemed to have caused him to make bad judgment calls. Including when he accused Tiresias of being a part of the murder. The reason why being because Tiresias would not answer the questions the Oedipus asked. Oedipus then goes on, over exaggerating his speech towards Tiresias saying, “Did you rise to the crisis?
The song itself is not a mainstream 90s song and Patrick’s tuxedo further emphasises their unwillingness to conform. Holden and Charlie are clearly alienated and isolated from their respective societies, but despite this similarity in their situations, the circumstances of their exclusion are contradictory. Holden has an accusatory tone towards society and adults for his corruption of innocence, “It was very phony – I mean him being such a big snob and all”. Conversely Chbosky gives Charlie a more self-conflicting attitude towards his isolation, as he almost blames himself for his exclusion, the quick flashbacks of his past trauma at the end of the film signifying this. Both Salinger and Chbosky have created influential characters that express the importance of not conforming to society.

This article shines the DAC in a bad light and makes them look too selective. This is never good for a business and I would have figured out why Fieger was not let in the club. The premise of this article is that the DAC may be too selective with their members, and even big names such as Geoffrey Fieger have trouble gaining
