“Popular Mechanics” uses a very real problem with stock characters to allow the reader to fill in the blank of what is happening based off of their own views/experiences. This means that when the reader tries to understand what is happening it will be different for each person. The story uses such a real problem filled with characters we can not relate to and know nothing about, and uses figurative language and other literary devices to hide the truth of the story. It is up to the reader to interpret the story how they understand it. The plot of this story is very important to this story, and what is missing from the plot.
Offred admits her story is a reconstruction, because “it’s impossible to say a thing exactly the way it was” (158). Though a struggle to be as honest as possible, Offred gives readers different versions of the same event without making it clear what she
The very integrity of a person’s reality is subject to being questioned as their mind begins to intertwine the realm of reality and illusion. The fabric of James Gatz’s reality ripped long before Nick Carraway met him. It might have even ripped long before F. Scott Fitzgerald externalized him into his novel, The Great Gatsby. There is no certainty in even believing that James Gatz was ever able to separate these two realms, therefore, there is no certainty that Gatz ever had a concrete reality to live in. Fitzgerald plays with this uncertain factor throughout the novel, as he inserts facts and descriptions of Gatsby’s “life”, with which he proliferates uncertainty and makes the reader subject to the same ideal he is using in his literary work.

Whether it is unrequited love, love that is lost, or love that could have possibly never been there in the first place. When comparing and contrasting these sonnets and contemporary songs, the reader will get to see love that is hardened by the hardships of infidelities and lies. In these songs and poems, love is a catastrophe that is facing much adversity. In sonnet 147, Shakespeare ended up being so appalled by his love life, that he said her soul was clouded by darkness. In Hold Up, Beyoncé somehow found a way to continue to love her husband, even with all of the grief he has put her through.
Solipsism is a philosophical belief that states only one 's own mind exists. Therefore, anything outside of the realm of one 's existence is uncertain. In multiple plays, Shakespeare 's characters are driven to explore truths they are given on their own accord. They rarely encounter the crux of the issue directly, so they run around the problem instead. For example, in Much Ado About Nothing, Claudio can prevent the majority of the play from happening if he asks Hero to explain what he saw in his window.
This love feel I, that feel no love in this.” (1.1.174-176). The oxymoronic enumeration of Romeo’s citing is utilised to express and exaggerate his contradictory perspective of love, which further suggest to readers about Romeo’s love-sickness. As the sympathetic person Benvolio is, he advises Romeo to notice other girls, contrary of what Romeo expected. In this way, Benvolio shows

This soliloquy is thematically significant because time represents order, organization and stability, and his own soliloquy represents the disorientation and chaos he had caused since the murder of Duncan.
Another point to consider is the consummation of love cited in the original writing; Even though the love between the two was passionate, the couple only consummates their love after they are married, something that prevents them from losing the sympathy of the public. It is possible that Romeo and Juliet function as an equation of love and sex, with death. Throughout the tragedy, he and she fantasize about this "fulminating equality", usually attributed to a lover. For example, Mr. Capulet is the one who first realizes Julieta 's "death", comparing this factor with the deflowering of his daughter, and, a little later, Julieta compares, erotically, Romeo with death. Just before committing suicide, he decides to use

Although there is hardly any proof of it within the text but macbeth’s change of behavior towars lady Macbeth after getting the crown shows how much he has moved forward since the first time his hands had shaken at the thought of a murder. After duncan’s murder lady Macbeth was never involved in any of his plans. Towards the end he even says that he had almost forgotten the taste of fear.
