Her anguish and anger was relatable by the audience because her sorrow and grief symbolises an average woman of her time who would have reacted in a similar way after a loss of her husband. However she transforms herself into an evil master mind and labels her husband and his new wife as her enemy. Her pursuit of revenge and will of making 'corpses of three of her enemies' flips the whole scenario as well as her characteristics. By this time she becomes a distinct character and no longer remains a typical woman. This clearly shows the hidden strength of a woman which was suppressed by men.
The period inscribed incessant terror into the minds of innocent citizens. The entire country was destitute of trust and loyalty, Robespierre included. Robespierre, fixated with the newfound mindset to “smother the internal and external enemies of the Republic” ( Document G), ordered counter-revolutionists to be executed; a vile method to weed out the enemies. This method not only gave the order to exile with no substantial evidence of a crime, (Document E) went against the purpose of the Committee of Public Safety (Document E). This not only muffled the voices of the people and robbed the freedom they graciously fought the monarchy for, but also encrypted fear and distrust in the French government.
Stella is resentful and angry. She does not try to escape the reality she is faced with but allows it to negatively affect her attitude towards her sister and her mother. For example Ozick explains “Then Stella took the shawl away and made Magda die. Afterward Stella said: ”I was cold.” And Afterward she was always cold, always. The cold went into her heart: Rosa saw that Stella’s heart was cold.”(300) Through this we see that Rosa has come to realize that in the dire circumstances of their situation Stella has come to really only care for herself not her family unlike Rosa.
But all he faces is injustice and accusations. Taylor states that the poem shows the true audacity of Reed’s death. It is true example of the unjust violence many Black families faced and had to endure to receive the rights they should never had been denied. Rudolph Reed only tries to defend his right of housing only to be punished with the terrible violence of racist whites that resulted in his unfair death. The terrible violence shone to Reed often fuels the fire of the need to defend one’s rights and thus causes many to stand up and fight.
Antigone also accuses Creon of being a fool to judge her for honoring the gods. "If my actions strike you as foolish, lets say I’ve been accused of folly by a fool” (523-25). Pride may cause even the greatest of leaders to struggle and while to a certain extent pride can be beneficial it gripped Antigone so strongly that she was blinded to any other views and it resulted in her
Nathaniel Hawthorne 's The Scarlet Letter tells the story of the life of Hester Prynne an adulteress forced to wear a Scarlet “A” on her bosom by the sinister Puritan society to mark her shame. As her husband seeks revenge for the unidentified lover, Arthur Dimmesdale stays wracked with guilt. The Scarlet Letters symbolism and use of allusions, metaphors, setting, irony, diction, and varied tone helps to unwrap the characters throughout the novel. Hawthornes motives for writing the The Scarlet Letter was to show how women can be equally as strong and independent as men as men can also be morally weak. Hawthorne uses his abilities to weave tone, mood, and style all into one story questioning his purpose of this tragic tale of shame and redemption.
Pathos is “the quality of speech or written work that appeals to the emotions of the audience.” For instance, “plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.” The words ravaged, and destroyed are emotional words to describe the unjust actions the king did to them. Also it is demonstrated in, “Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.” This proves the colonists opinions on the king, showing how he is not worthy to lead their uprising nation. Ethos is “the character and credibility of the writer in the eyes of the reader.” An example of this is, “We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions..”. The author shows their credibility by stating they are representatives of the United States of America. The authors also portrayed this by, “In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms.” By saying this, the authors show they have tried to set agreed terms with
Achebe labels Conrad as “a thoroughgoing racist” (Achebe, 1977) because of his insulting descriptions of native Africans. Perhaps Achebe focused too much on Conrad’s description of native Africans that he failed to see the bigger picture – Conrad’s message about imperialism. Through Marlow, the readers get to vicariously experience witnessing the harsh conditions of the native Africans under the control of Europeans. Marlow saw “black shapes crouched, lay, sat between the trees leaning against the trunks, clinging to the earth” (Conrad & Walker, 1981, p. 25) as the Europeans in that area fire on a camp of natives. This appalled Marlow; he does not approve of European presence in Africa.
From the sonnet 138, we can see the hypocrisies and deceits in love. In sonnet 138, we can see even people lies to others when they are in love. It is ignorant to think that all the love are like the iconic prince and princess love in the fairy tale. The deceitful love is a kind of twisted love, breaking the convention of the loyal and faithful in love relation. It is heartbreaking to read the sonnet, “ When my love swears that she is made of truth I do believe her, though I know she lies, That she might think me some untutored youth, Unlearned in the world’s false subtleties.
This novel focuses on a female heroine’s affairs and romanticized view of the world to create a disparity between her fantasy and reality. This story was notoriously made successful by the perceived obscenity of Flaubert’s message of adultery and vice that led to a court trial. The use of precise and evocative language in the text exemplifies to readers everywhere the pertinent and appalling features of the new middle-class from beginning to end. The bourgeoisie is satirically criticized of its weaknesses and failures in this provincial tragedy through Charles Bovary’s mediocrity, Emma Bovary’s ennui, Monsieur Homais’s conventionality, and Monsieur Lheureux’s
Mariam and Laila are forced, by punishment up to execution, to remain loyal and patient to their husband and while in public. Even while the alternative is cruel, “Mariam chewed. Something in the back of her mouth cracked”, Rasheed demonstrates his lack of compassion by leaving her to“spit out pebbles, blood, and the fragments of two broken molars”. (p. 104) Enduring injustices like this are nothing short of common for women in developing countries. Men control women through manipulation and fear, powerful, ugly tools that spawn from greed and selfishness.
After the government was accused of maltreatment, they fought back by doing an “ethnic cleansing” of Darfur’s non-arabs. The only pro of this was proving that there actually was persecution going on through the government in the Sudan. These oppressions and persecutions going on are just adding more fuel to the fire. Humanity is capable of carrying out these cruelties by genocide leaders being mentally ill, having no social order, and specific groups being oppressed. Hitler’s psychological disorders worsened the violence of the Holocaust.
She couldn’t believe what she had found. There are satisfying reasons to believe in my theory and they are the muck fire, sinkhole, and Erik and Arthur. These are all examples from the book. Therefore, in the book, Tangerine, the theme is even though it looks perfect on the outside, the inside is ugly. Now my theory proves that people could be elegant and pleasant on the outside, but malicious and ugly on the inside.
In the novel The Great Gatsby, F.Scott Fitzgerald depicts the theme of “wealth can breed carelessness” using the literary devices and/or techniques of irony, irony, and point of view. From Nick 's perspective, the wealthy characters of this story tend to act ignorantly and care nothing else besides themselves, which would impact others, including the actions shown by Gatsby, Tom, Daisy, and Jordan. First of all, F. Scott Fitzgerald depicts the theme of “Wealth can breed carelessness” using irony. In the text, a conversation between Jordan and Nick, “‘They’ll keep out of my way,’ she insisted. ‘It takes two to make an accident.’ ‘Suppose you met somebody just as careless as yourself.’ ‘I hope I never will,’ she answered.
