The embellishment of the daughter’s love by taking advantage of their father through flattery is the basis for the final quote of the play as Edgar remarks about the consequences of lies and manipulation rather than speaking from the heart. Though Regan and Goneril replied to a dramatic degree of which they love their father, Lear interrogated her by exclaiming, “What can you say to draw a third more opulent than your sisters? Speak” (Lear 1.1.87-88). Filled with power, Lear spoke to his daughters in an arrogant tone as he hinted that his inheritance is related to how much love they profess towards him. In response, Cordelia answers of nothing, beginning a string of repetition of the word “nothing” each with various syntax and punctuation to show the tension building between the father and daughter relationship.
The use of repetition in Antony 's speech allows for him to persuade the crowd and enable him to indoctrinate the plebeians causing them to despise the conspirators undertakings and yearn for Caesar’s avengence. ‘You all did see that on the Lupercal I thrice presented him a kingly crown, which he did thrice refuse. Was this ambition? Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; And sure he is an honorable man’
Rhetorical devices aid in persuading the reader into believing what is being told to them. In the play Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, Shakespeare utilizes these devices to show how other characters persuade their audiences. Caesar was growing too strong, and the Senate, the branch of government, grew wary of this rise to power, so they plotted to kill him. Brutus, one of Caesar’s good friends, aids in this scheme, and speaks at his eulogy. He sways public opinion of himself by using an abundance of rhetoric to portray himself as a selfless man.
She warps Macbeth’s internal conflict, the action to murder, or not to murder, by questioning the essence of his manhood. She entices Macbeth with the notion of kingship, the belief that being king will make him a greater man. Yet, the fall of Macbeth is not as easily done as the descent of Adam and Eve. While still not convince, but conflicted by words of his wife, Lady Macbeth says, “I have given suck, and know how tender ’tis to love the babe that milks me: I would, while it was smiling in my face, Have pluck'd my nipple from his boneless gums, And dash'd the brains out, had I so sworn as you have done to this”(I.VII.55-60). As a final effort to taste the forbidden fruit, Lady Macbeth contrast Macbeth’s intention with his actions by comparing it to her baby whose brains is bashed out.
In her letter Abigail Adams wants her son and her husband to continue their voyage to France, despite what events may occur and persevere through any personal conflicts that may occur. She drove her message through a plethora of rhetoric devices along with tone. A rhetorical device Mrs. Adams uses is parallelism. She states “Great necessities call out great virtues,” which would mean that John Q. Adams would have great challenges and tests in his life, however, it’s those challenges and tests that make him a better person and will pull out the greatness in him.
Two polar opposite scenarios are between Mr. Brocklehurst and Helen Burns. When Mr. Brocklehurst justifies students’ malnutrition by calling it “fortitude under temporary privation” (Bronte 62), his sanctimony becomes apparent, as shortly after his speech, his daughters arrive in “velvet, silk, and furs.” (Bronte 63) In contrast, Helen Burns incorporates the benevolent aspect of Christianity. Upon Jane asking Helen how Helen could endure the harsh treatment, Helen explains that she follows the word of the Lord, which says to “love your enemies” (Bronte 56) and to “bless them that curse you [the recipients]” (Bronte 56).
Unlike Shakespeare, Wilde uses names to further the satirical nature of The Importance of Being Earnest. Throughout the play Wilde is perpetually using situational irony, exaggeration, deflation and epigrammatic phrases in order to ridicule societies social norms. Although the play is satirical it also gives a lot of insight on the importance of names. The play states that names are enough to judge character and even status in society. Wilde uses Algernon especially to ridicule society, at of the play he states that “divorces are made in heaven” which is ironic because by the very end of the play he proposes to a girl who he knew for ten minutes (Wilde).
i' the other, / And I will look on both indifferently, / For let the gods so speed me as I love, / The name of honour more than I fear death.” . Through this the audience learns Brutus values his honor over everything and would go as far as dying for it.
This quote near the end of the tale is used by the Wife of Bath to show how the Knight makes the correct move by giving his wife the power of choice; and because of this the hag becomes beautiful and faithful. This choice and its impact is meant to bring the Wife of Bath’s main point, that men should realize and accept how capable women are, and not to treat them so
“‘Noblest dearest, tenderest wife,’ cried Aylmer, rapturously, “doubt not my power. I have already given this matter the deepest thought --- thought which might almost have enlightened me to create a being less perfect than yourself.” “I feel myself fully competent to render this dear cheek as faultless as its fellow; and then, most beloved, what will be my triumph when I shall have corrected what Nature left imperfect in her fairest work!” The story takes these two opposing symbols and creates the theme of Nature versus action against nature. “Man playing God,” is a common example, and in this story, Aylmer tries to remove the birthmark.
This male audience would have taken it as a potential threat to “male hegemony that was demonstrably dangerous” (Fletcher 30). Euripides for the better or worst, depending on how the male audience reacted, controversially sobered the viewers into the reality of honoring women. To add, “in Aristophanes 's Frogs, the poet Aeschylus complains that Euripides has made tragedy democratic by allowing his women and slaves to talk as well as the master of the house“(Foley 13). This is unquestionably true, especially with how the play begins.
Regardless of the French people for wanting a representative government, Napoleon thought that the French had a natural necessity for a type of monarchy. He will offer a French monarchy more effective, crueler and more powerful than any in the Ancient Regime. He will not only limit the freedoms of the French, but destabilized the equality that was so greatly taken in the initial years of the Revolution. He has re-formed a French nobility, granting the closes people to him with noble titles and estates. He also ignored the spiritual approaches of the Revolution by reestablishing Catholicism in France, and in the Concordat of 1801 signed an agreement.
The fact that you will be judged on every little detail may cause you to rethink if being an american is all it 's said to be. In the poem “ America “ by Claude McKay she says “I love this cultured hell that tests my youth! Her vigor flows like tides into my blood, Giving me strength erect against her hate.” (p14) This quote is a prime example of how being an American is bittersweet.
Regardless of who writes the biographies and reflections—whether by its winners or its losers—shifts in values over time make objectivity difficult. Without sufficient education on a subject, one manages by rumors and hearsay; but upon learning of a humanizing anecdote, one then realizes that the monster he or she had expected is complicated and, perhaps, redeemable. In the case of Napoleon Bonaparte, however, there are many parties involved in his discussion who hold many opinions and write many books to prove them. The French, as is expected, look up to the man who both won them their revolution and brought their country into a golden age. The British, however, warred with Napoleon, taking every precaution necessary to assassinate his character despite the growing favor of his progressive republicanism and human rights sympathies.
For example; the action of her buying her brother’s name Anil and the sexual favours she suggested, displays her sheer determination to achieve her goals and to expose the weaker trait of males. The determination of the audience’s response is used with of slight lack of closure to this novel. The lack of closure of the end crime texts is a popular literary technique used to demand the audience to determine the fate of the characters, this convention was used in the 50’s and early 60’s. The author, Ondaatje holds onto some conventions of crime writing, but also departs from them dramatically with the use of his post-modernist perspective of writing. In relation to our core of humanity, Ondaatje
