Anna Campbell Professor Himmel ENC 1102 19 March 2018 Keeping Up Appearances Popular culture is fascinated with the unreliability of appearances, yet many individuals feel the need to hide reality behind a false appearance. A beast may truly be a handsome prince, but regular people must conceal their flaws. This conflict is described in the poems “We Wear the Mask,” by Paul Laurence Dunbar, and “A Certain Lady,” by Dorothy Parker, with varied emotions; Dunbar addresses the subject with sorrow, whereas the tone of Parker’s poem is bitter and mocking. In “We Wear the Mask,” Paul Laurence Dunbar uses the image of a mask to describe the way outward appearances can give false impressions of a person. In the first line, he describes the titular
An example from the story ,A Tale of Two Cities, Madam Defarge does not have much empathy for people during the attacks, cutting peoples heads off, and attacking people in Chapter 21. Madame Defarge was driven to do this, because all of the hardships that her people, including herself, have gone through. Evil can develop in people of any age and can have disastrous effects depending on who it is and what that individual is upset about. The younger a person is, the easier it may be to rid them of the evil that may have been caused by events of people around them. The older they are they more they would want to hold on to what they are feeling.
Asma shows that his article was written for an educated or specialized audience by his continual use of complex vocabulary, as well as the place of which the article was first published. Asma did an excellent job convincing his audience using emotion, logic, and ethics. Besides his use of logic, there is a large amount of pathos in his writing, which makes the reader perceive that he is writing to a skeptical audience. For example, describing how in modern films, such as Frankenstein, “we dramatize the rage of the monstrous creature…then scold ourselves…[for being an] intolerant society”(61). “The liberal lesson of monsters
Combining intelligent, beautiful and ambitious women with restrictions placed on their personhood have a tendency to become a lethal combination. In William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Lady Macbeth emulates the classic femme fatale character; however, the ambition that resides within her often goes unnoticed because of her gender, resulting in her having to use alternative methods to achieve her goals. Lady Macbeth learns to use her femininity, something others would see as a disadvantage, to her benefit. She masters the art of seduction and uses manipulation as well as deception, and detachment to conceal her truly power hungry nature. However the skills she uses to reach her goals lead to her ultimate demise.
And how Tally wants to convince shay to also turn pretty with tally and not look back. And how things will end with her sneaking around before turning pretty. Tally was very sneaky because of the way she did things like the time she went to new pretty town without being pretty. And they quoted “Tally was an infiltrator, a sneak, and an ugly. But to explain the reason the pretties said this awful quote was because she was funny looking and Tally didn’t belong over there as of now.
Told in many different ways Beauty and the Beast is the story of a young beautiful girl held prisoner by a hideous beast. The story always ends with the Beast winning Beauty over even though he is an unattractive creature. Expressed in a third person point of view, but with the focus on Beauty, De Beaumont’s version is different then Straparola’s version “The Pig King.” “The Pig King” is also told in a third person point of view, but the focus is on the Pig King and not Meldina. This completely changes the focus on the story and the way that the reader interprets it. De Beaumont’s version focuses on Beauty as the protagonist and she is the savior of the two most important men in her life.
Also, because yielding to this unqualified claim will inevitably violate Gawain’s moral code, Lady Bertilak’s words cannot be considered innocent or lacking in purpose. This temptation gains the majority of its appeal by challenging Gawain’s reputation and pride, establishing a relatable relationship between Gawain and the audience as almost all individuals prioritize status and self-interest. Because this relationship is made, Gawain’s breach of morals in kissing Lady Bertilak reveals the near universal weakness of pride among the human race. The imperfection of mankind is further demonstrated when Lady Bertilak tempts Gawain with the green girdle. This gift attracts Gawain’s interest as it guarantees his safety, but it also challenges his virtue of honesty because Lady Bertilak “[asks Gawain]... to hide the gift from her husband” (1862-1863).
People are fascinated by justice and injustice, whether you are mature or immature, to the degree that it could drive some people mad. The story, “The Possibility of Evil” by Shirley Jackson, tales the tale of one such women who had become so entranced by getting rid of evil by serving them justice, that she went rather delusional with what she had probably intended to do at first. That woman, Adela Strangeworth, was quite the prominent figure in her town and she felt she had to do something when she thought she sighted evil. However, she began to radicalize her views of evil and as such her sense of evil and how it should be punished greatly from denizens of the town. “The Possibility of Evil”, by Shirley Jackson, showcases how justice can
He does not want to hurt Beauty but wants her help. In De Beaumont’s story Belle tells the Beast, "I own I am pleased with your kindness, and when I consider that, your deformity scarce appears”(De Beaumont 1). This shows that he is nice to Beauty. The Beast replies, “my heart is good, but still I am a monster"(De Beaumont 1). Beauty and the Beast are star crossed lovers which is another archetype.
She may be more barbaric than the queen of Heoret and considered a monster but considering the humans have done heinous actions that make them seem monstrous as well and it further proves appearance has nothing to do with classifying a monster. For example in the poem after Grendel’s death in the celebration, a bard told a tale about the fight between in-laws which resulted in death, we found out that they were former tribes that despised each other but a marriage between them could not contain years of misconceptions; blood was shed and the barbarisms of that scene shows that humans can perform deeds that are questionable and
