In fact, Mr. White is also warned of the consequences that he will have to face if he puts the paw to use. However, he goes and uses it and suffers the consequences of his greed. 2. The author W. W. Jacobs sets the mood of the story through setting and atmosphere to create a horror/mysterious vibe to the reader. He uses nature and the surroundings of the characters to create mood as he describes the atmosphere of location.
Idealism and realism are both exemplified through the characters in The Tempest. Gonzalo brings idealism into the story with his optimistic personality, while, Caliban and Stephano represented realism by how they were easily enslaved by human nature. Though, people can often agree that the book contains both ideas, there are differing views on whether or not the conclusion to the book is idealistic or realistic. People often assume that Prospero is acting in service to revenge or vengeance throughout the play, which may not be necessarily true. If vengeance was Prospero’s motive, there might have been more of an incentive to sink the ship along with its passengers at the beginning.
Even though Queen Mab may be extremely small, her negative dreams cause a tremendous impact on others. The smallest things can have a positive or negative impact on an individual. Romeo and Juliet’s love seemed like a little harmless thing, but the reality was that their “love” led them to their eternal doom. Shakespeare applies the use of diction in the climax to further advance the motif of dreams. When Romeo first sees Juliet lying in the tomb he describes her as “Is crimson in thy lips and in thy
Mark Twain’s The Invalid’s Story is a story of how something bizarre can have a lasting effect on someone’s life. The story appeals to the reader’s sense of smell. The story displays as humor when in reality, it is rather tragic. The wrong decision can have serious consequences. Common sense plays a key role in this tale.
Between the story and the poem, revenge plays a large role of each. Throughout “A Poison Tree” and “The Cask of Amontillado”, friendship is valued upon. But once that friendship bond was broken, revenge was the only thing left to be appealing. Although revenge was a significant role throughout the two, another significant role was, the butterfly effect. The butterfly effect definition is “the phenomenon whereby a minute localized change in a complex system can have large effects elsewhere.” Meaning, if one decision was taken differently, one’s life would have a completely different outcome.
These short stories are related to this idea in the way that they both discuss how if someone is going to suffer from your actions they will be avenged. If Aesop was alive to read this quote he would have agreed that the quote is true because if you read his Fables you can find the quote to be true to most of them. In one of his fable he says “Those who seek to harm others often come to harm themselves through their own deceit”. What he means by this quote is that if you intend to intentional harm someone you will often make yourself suffer. This is related to Nietzsche’s idea because in Aesop’s quote it talks about how the frog intentionally harmed the mouse and this later led to the frog getting himself harmed.
Relationships between Romeo, Juliet and the Friar are some of the most potent and detailed in Romeo and Juliet. The story would be completely different without them. Another way that fate has contributed to the overall depth and genius of this story, is how the reader interprets the word. Fate also means the end or death of someone, and Romeo and Juliet’s fate has forever changed the lives of the Montagues and Capulets, disintegrating their rivalry. Change is one of the big themes in Romeo and Juliet, and fate plays right into that theme making it very noticeable and potent.
Kate Chopin and Roald Dahl both use irony as well as similar themes of betrayal and heartbreak to motion their two very different storylines forward. Though the works take place in antithetical eras, each holds a similar calamity that results in the breaking up of the protagonists and soon to be antagonists. These moments of heartache hold relevance due to their unfortunate relatableness in today 's society. Upon further inspection of the themes and irony in Lamb to the Slaughter, and Desiree’s Baby, the reader can better understand the possible cruelties a relationship can hold as well as it 's sometimes unavoidable hardships. Both narratives bear a conspicuous similarity using irony.
The Monkey's paw is a story about a cursed paw that gives three granted wishes. Although it may sound great, there are consequences that go along with these wishes. W.W Jacobs uses foreshadowing, allusion, and symbolism to convey/develop the theme of fate and chance in the short story The Monkey's Paw
The story "Desiree's Baby" by Kate Chopin contains a plot twist that builds the irony. Unknown identities and racial tension have a way of constructing the story. These key roles have the effect of leaving the audience thinking a certain outcome, but irony comes in with a whole different ending then what was expected. The irony in “Desiree’s Baby” creates the tragic outcome. This particular story “Desiree’s Baby” contains situational irony.
