He continues by saying “as he was/ valiant, I honour him: but, as he was ambitious, I/ slew him (3.2.27-28).” Through these words he shows the people what he is capable of doing and how conflicts must be resolved. In contrast, Antony is trying to make Brutus sound like an imposter and he constantly repeats the phrase “Brutus is an honorable man (3.2.91).” When he uses this phrase in such sentences it slowly starts to sound sarcastic or stretched. “He was my friend, faithful and just to me:/ But Brutus says he was ambitious;/And Brutus is an honourable man (3.2. ).” Antony continues his debate by giving examples of the great treasures Caesar has brought Rome.
This is achieved through mocking the possibility of his son falling short of expectations given his advantages. Lines 41-42 explicitly state this by asking “can there be anything more mortifying than to be excelled by them?” (“them” being Chesterfield’s son’s peers), this quote is extremely condescending to say the least. However the statement is also presents some of Chesterfields own values. It is not enough to merely do well in something, success is defined by exceeding all of one’s own fellow peers. In addition Chesterfield follows up his point in lines 43-45 directly addressing his son by saying “your shame and regret must be greater than anybody because everybody knows the uncommon care which has been taken to your education,” the careful use of language illustrates his point.
Another thing they also have in common is after they get power they do bad things with the power they have. Cassius is a senator in Shakespeare 's “Julius Caesar.” He is jealous of Julius Caesar because of all the power and love he gets, as shown in the quote "Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world Like a Colossus, and we petty men Walk under his huge legs and peep about." This quote basically states that cassius is tired of Julius being better and that he thinks they should not be beneath him. Cassius also seeks to get his own power. To achieve this he manipulates Brutus as shown by this quote, “Well, Brutus, thou art noble; yet, I see, Thy honourable metal may be wrought From that it is disposed: therefore it is meet That noble minds keep ever with their likes; For who so firm that cannot be seduced?” This quote shows that Cassius believes he has power over Brutus and that he will eventually be
Why does Earl go out of his way to inform his wife that she’s fat? Earl himself isn’t aware of this, but the audience is. He is insecure. Earl doesn’t have a job and has gone to numerous interviews but no one is willing to employ him. Earl internalizes public adoration about his wife’s figure as acceptance for his own shortcomings.
Let her die before his eyes,” Creon threatens Haimon to kill Antigone, “Here, this instant, with her bridegroom before her!” (Sophocles Scene 3, 137-39). During this quarrel, Haimon stays calm while on the other hand, Creon angrily disputes with him due to his arrogance. Additionally, Creon argues that an adolescence, like his son, does not have as much experience as an adult, like himself. Not aware of his power, Creon only sees this as discipline towards his son, as some parents would do. Without his excessive pride and arrogance, Haimon would have considered changing his mind.
The use of repetition in Antony 's speech allows for him to persuade the crowd and enable him to indoctrinate the plebeians causing them to despise the conspirators undertakings and yearn for Caesar’s avengence. ‘You all did see that on the Lupercal I thrice presented him a kingly crown, which he did thrice refuse. Was this ambition? Yet Brutus says he was ambitious; And sure he is an honorable man’ (III.ii.96-100, 89-91, 92-95) Antony’s use of rhetorical statements of Brutus’s honorable implies the exact opposite of what he says to the crowd. Although Marc Antony is given the moment to speak during the funeral, he must not speak badly on behalf of the conspirators sake, which allows him to use repetition to ultimately state one thing but mean the exact opposite; these statement ultimately
Martin Luther King and Adolph Hitler were alluring speakers but with different desires. Both had the extreme ability to attract to the masses through the spoken word, this being obvious in some of their famous speeches. Putting aside Hitler 's ghastly desires and outcomes and just examining the interesting and well- liked delivery of his speeches I feel that today he would have been worthy of the trainers trainer certification. The persuasion that he learned and developed in handling crowds, even large crowds of thousands, involved pacing the objections he knew that they would have against his argument and using them in the service of persuasion. He did that by pacing and leading.
Because this piece was written to be spoken, the use of repetition has a greater impact. While the audience listens, they can detect the emphasis the speaker puts on certain words. For example, Rowling reveals a specific instance from her past, where a young man who lost everything wished happiness for Rowling’s future. Not only was this ironic considering the horrible acts this man has endured, but it was also very impactful because of the way Rowling depicted it. This highlights another main idea, that life is a gift and there are always people who have it worse.
His point of view will affect copious amounts people as he is a trusted figure of religion, instinctively causing several people to seek him out for advice. The father role he takes on for Romeo naturally causes him to have a heavy hand in how Romeo develops and changes. Since Friar Laurence also believes in gender roles, he will consequently impart this point of view to Romeo, affecting how he sees the world and how he grows up. Romeo will grow up believing that there is something wrong with crying, that it displays weakness and that only girls can do it. One will be exposed to gender roles while growing up, controlling one’s understanding of the
This highlights how significant this moment in the play is as the Inspector is shown to know more than the characters in the play, creating dramatic irony as the audience begins to understand exactly who the father of Eva’s baby is. Also, the second quote shows exactly who has power in this moment. This is highlights with the diction of “frightened” as they seem to be nervous in the presence of the Inspector. He is in control, which is unusual with an upper class society. This is a revealing moment as the Inspector seems to defy the family linking to how the Inspector is a symbol of
Contrary to Bronte, Lincoln uses a conversational, monosyllabic, and concrete diction, as shown by these words: “conduct,” “defect,” “habit,” “idler,” and “difficulty.” Since Lincoln has a close relationship with his brother, he is able to speak comfortably and address him directly; but, it also allows Lincoln to be more straight-forward as he uses monosyllabic words to stress the importance of his brother working to pay off his own debt. Due to the difference in audiences, Bronte tries to impress her readers with her elaborate and ornate language while
