He comes up with a very good plan to get each other to turn against one another. So in the end he ends up getting what he wanted, revenge.
Such is the case in “Gatsby is a Pathological Narcissist” by Giles Mitchell, who argues this point, especially in relation to how Gatsby acts towards Daisy. Mitchell claims that, “There is no evidence in the novel that Gatsby feels any moral conflict about urging Daisy to marry him— to marry into a life supported by criminal activities” (Mitchell 63). While Gatsby does wrongly force Daisy into admitting she loves only him and chooses to keep his personal affairs quiet, Gatsby’s clandestineness can be justified and his remorse is seen when Tom reveals to Daisy that Gatsby is involved in illegal activities. Gatsby quickly becomes angry with Tom, but shortly after shows that he cares about Daisy’s opinion by apologizing and trying to defend himself. “He looked… as if he had ‘killed a man.’ For a moment the set of his face could be described in just that fantastic way.
Montresor’s hatred for Fortunato is what leads him to his plan of chaining and burying Fortunato behind a wall. Montresor is very angry with Fortunato, but yet he knows he must not act in such a hostile way, as to not raise the suspicions of Fortunato. Montresor convincingly asks Fortunato to come down to the catacombs with him to “verify” some wine which Montresor has “bought”. Montresor knows that he must not blow his cover, and the story goes into great detail as to how Montresor keeps luring Fortunato down to
He is much less emotional than Hamlet and Laertes, as he is logical in his action. Both Hamlet and Fortinbras plan to avenge their father’s death from the start of the story ( Lynch 2). They both feel cheated of the crown after their father’s unrightful passing and that their uncles stripped them of their title. Hamlet is a soldier with no real power and seems to be okay with it; he doesn 't want to fight. Yet, Fortinbras is a soldier that takes it into his own hand to have power and loves to fight.
When the duel begins, Prince Hamlet did won the first hit, but Prince Hamlet decided not drink the wine because he wanted to stay focus on the duel. After Prince Hamlet striked Laertes again, Gertrude drunk the cup of wine to celebrate the victory. Claudius told her not to drink it, but she ignore the suggestion. Unfortunate Gertrude
Given his circumstances, he realized that “he was no longer a shepherd, and he had nothing, not even money to return and start everything over” (Coelho, 39). Santiago was so ashamed that he “wanted to cry” (Coelho, 39). However, he did not give up hope. He remarkably responds to this spiritual test by looking to the old man who had taught him to look to Urim and Thummim when he had trouble coming to a decision. After collecting himself, Santiago successfully passes his first psychological challenge realizing that “he had to choose between thinking of himself as the poor victim of a thief, or as an adventurer in quest of his treasure” (Coelho, 42).
For instance, the Crystal merchant states that, ‘‘Because I know the things I should be able to accomplish, and I don't want to do so,’’ which further provokes the idea of cowardness amongst himself. The old merchant is too afraid too loose the things he already has then to pursue his personal legend, which then leads to a dramatic impact on his life becoming extremely ordinary and simple. The old king's situation is an extremely important reminder for Santiago in terms of him pursuing his own personal legend. He serves as a warning to him, that those that are too scared to pursue their personal legend face major
By proving himself to be loyal he can have an easier way of influencing the other characters. He also has another advantage of being “loyal”, it means that the characters will let him do what he pleases without suspicion because they trust him so much. In the beginning of Othello, Iago protests against Othello to Roderigo “I follow him to serve my turn upon him” proving that Iago clearly does not want to honestly follow Othello. Roderigo is affected by this, because he believes him and keeps letting Iago use him unknowingly, leading to his death. Although Roderigo is misled by Iago’s he still keeps his mental and emotional state normal with little doubt, until the end.
They drinking Odysseus’ wine, and feasting on his herds. This does not make Penelope happy, which makes her even less likely to pick a suitor. This is harmful to the suitors wants and wishes because one of them will not be chosen now. Finally, a beggar that runs errands and does things for the suitors named Irus takes after their disrespectful habits and presents Odysseus with very negative displays of hospitality. When Odysseus asks to share Irus’ begging turf, he refuses and threatens Odysseus.
Montessor uses Fortunato’s connoisseurship in wine to lure him into the catacombs , then tries to make him go back . “Niter,”I replied ,”how long have you had that cough ?”..my poor friend found it impossible for him to reply for many minutes.. we will go back your heath is precious… I shall not die of a cough.”117 This quote shows betrayal because Montessori made him feel as if he was safe with him when in reality Fortunato was falling right in Montressors trap. Montessor was deciving Fortunado by telling him to go back after coughing for a while, then giving him wine after he denies going back. “True-true”, I replied;”and indeed, I has no intention of alarming you unnecessarily , but you should use all proper caution. A draft of this Medoc will defend us from the damps.”117 This quote suggest that Montressor is a snake Montessor deceives Fortunato so that he has no clue of Montressors evil intent.
Finny 's harmless reaction leads Gene to realize that Finny does not want him to leave. Gene now tells Brinker, Finny 's apparent relief, that he no longer wants to enlist. Gene feels deep inner peace as he trains with Finny and sometimes finds it difficult to really believe in the widespread
Before he dies on page 148, Johnny tells both Dally and Ponyboy, "Useless...fighting 's no good." Johnny is right. It really is useless. However, if the Soc and the greasers would express their feelings verbally instead of physically, death and injuries would decline dramatically. In conclusion, I believe that the theme communication is better than violence is the best lesson illustrated in The Outsiders, because physical harm doesn 't change anything, there 's no point in doing it, and it usually ends negatively for the participants.
“He had a weak point… He prided himself on his connoisseurship in wine…” (Poe, 360). Montresor use of verbal irony demonstrates that the murder is premeditated. “... the cough… it will not kill me…” states Fortunato who receives “True-true…” as a response from Montresor (Poe, 362). He exploits this and deceives the man to go down into the caverns that housed the supposed Amontillado. Furthermore, Montresor never tells the reader what Fortunato actually did.
He matches Aristotle’s definition of a tragic hero because of his fatal flaw. His tragic flaw was attempting to faithfully continue serving the "true" Emperor Marcos Aurelius, not considering the possible consequences he might have to face in order to return Rome to a Republic for the people. Captain John H. Miller was the captain of the American Army. He, like Maximus, does not give up very easily. Even though his mission is to save one man and risk many of his men, he presents a full effort to complete this mission no matter how senseless he believed it was.
