The tragic tone of Creon’s exclamation shows the regret that he feels for his destructive actions, and the use of the phrase ‘thoughtless thoughts’ indicates that he has realized that he has been exhibiting extreme foolishness. The fact that Creon’s stupidity led to the ‘slaying and dying’ of his loved ones, this is positive in that it ensures that the change will be lasting, and his mistakes will not be repeated. Consequences and losses help ensure that people will remedy their flawed qualities, and that the sacrifices of the people involved in rebellion are not in
A great example of this confidence is in chapters one to ten where Barry Bagsley is very confident that he was not going to get in trouble about the nasty comments he makes about Ishmael. In chapter five, page nineteen, Barry Bagsley says, ‘Hey, what stinks? Oh no! it’s Fishtail Le Sewer!’ The words that he uses not only damage Ishmael’s feelings but decrease his self-confidence, making Ishmael feel as if he can’t stick up for himself.
He is manipulative and tells Othello to “observe her [Desdemona] well with Cassio” (Shakespeare, 3.3:197). Iago feeds Othello with countless lies and makes him miserable with something that is not factual. He is determined to get revenge and he does not realize Iago stands insincere. Furthermore, Iago is selfish when he tells Othello, “I am yours for ever” (3.3:479). He betrays Othello yet still let’s him depend on him for his own
However, in the Odyssey, Odysseus makes choices that both his crew and the reader find questionable. Although Odysseus has some positive attributes he is a bad leader for the following reasons he keeps secrets from his crew, he falls asleep at inappropriate times and is arrogant to a fault. Odysseus’s
This quotation helps readers understand Holden's motives on much of his dislikes in things because he believes that he is on the unfair side of the game. In the end Old Spencer wants Holden to conform to the rest of society, but of course Holden's unique perspective on life causes him to disregard what Old Spencer says. Quote #4: In J.D Salinger's Catcher In The Rye, the speaker of
man. This conflict is an external problem. The main issue is that Chillingworth tortures Dimmesdale because he suspects that Dimmesdale was the one that committed the sin along side of Hester. When the people think that Dimmesdale is sick it’s
He uses emotional words and sayings like “ungrateful” and “inmost parts of my soul” to really drive home that fact that he felt personally victimized by their betrayal. Henry’s speech was relatively persuasive in the fact that he seemed to actually tell how he felt toward his men, but not really in convincing the men who already betrayed him that they did
At first, Barabas considers the wrongs done to him by various people as very personal issues. However, as the play progresses he begins to abhor the Christians specifically because of certain experiences. Barabas teaches his slave, Ithamore, the trade of revenge: “First, be thou void of these affections/ Compassion, love, vain hope, and heartless fear;/ Be mov'd at nothing, see thou pity none/ But to thyself smile when the Christians moan”.
This scene is also important mostly where it illustrates why King Henry V was so depressed and melancholy because he was disgusted about the sin and devious act his father committed in order to achieve the crown. Henry feels ashamed and is willing to do as much as possible to prove to the people that he is not like his father in his ruling and shameful ways but he is worthy enough to be wearing the crown. Henry V disguise through the use of a cloak also help to showcase the differences in the class positions in the society. For instance, the people they speak to King Henry V who is disguised very straightforward and open but if they saw the King in real they would have been more hesitant to say what they wanted. This third poster is very symbolic in the play since it helps us to distinguish the type of respect and authority the subjects have for the King as opposed to a common man.
In Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye, the main character, Holden Caulfield, is challenged by the world around him. One of the main issues he faces is “ . . . constantly [feeling] as if he is being surrounded by his enemies. (Huber and Ledbetter 254)”
“Why, then, had he come hither? Was it but the mockery of penitence? A mockery, indeed, but in which his soul trifled with itself. He had been driven higher by the impulse of that Remorse which dogged him everywhere” (Hawthorne 138) here dimmesdale can 't face the justice of what he has done wrong which is why the author called him a coward and is the reason why he kept his secrets because he is a coward to admit it to and face the consequences which is why later the guilt of keeping them eats him from the inside.
What is the first thing many people see when first meeting someone? Their eyes or their smile, this is not the case for Cyrano de Bergerac. His nose is his most noticeable feature. Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmund Rostand is a play written about a 1600 century France musketeer, an all but perfect musketeer Cyrano de Bergerac. Though, he has one flaw, his abnormally large nose.
On a personal level, i think asking someone about how white bread makes them feel is very odd. Just as the man in the video felt when he was asked if white bread consumption brought on feelings of loneliness. Looking at it from the perspective of the company however, asking a question like this makes sense. No one wants to be the brand of bread that is associated with lonely, or furthermore a more descriptive adjective such as dissatisfied. So using a technique such as this to isolate the feeling consumers have about their product is very important.
Finally at the end of the passage Nick describes the West Egg by comparing it to one of the Greco’s painting. Nick says “I see it as a night scene by El Greco: a hundred houses, at once conventional and grotesque, crouching under a sullen overhanging sky and lustreless moon.” When looking at the painting, there is a wealthy city with grand buildings and houses on top of a hill, but behind the buildings there is a dark cloud. The dark cloud symbolizes the hidden secrets and lies behind the wealth and riches in the West. By Nick comparing the West Egg to a painting instead of describing it through his own experiences, it suggest that he doesn’t want to be associated with the West Egg and wants to distance himself from there.
