A War Within War is inevitable, war is not peaceful nor accepted by many. War is the act portrayed by many men and women who believe they’re making a difference, that one less life in the world is nothing more than the act of taking it. Wars come and go claiming they’re making a difference in a positive way liberating a certain territory, whilst destroying it. War is the true equalizer between life and death, fairness and irony. The novel “My Brother Sam is Dead” symbolizes many of these traits.
In the play Macbeth illustrate innate human tendency to make inhumane choices when given the freedom to. When Macbeth realize that he is trusted by the king and is given more freedom , his inner savagery is stimulated. For example, when Macbeth at the beginning of the novel was praised by the king and his friends as he the kings says “worthiest cousin” macbeth shows that he does not think of anyting but loyalt and respect to his kingdom, but in his mind he seeks the ambition in becoming king and thinks recklessly and tragic activities on his mind. As the acts of savagery become more integrated, the idea of death and blood becomes more comforting, and even encouraging. When king Duncan announces that his son malcom will be next to the throne
Othello starts to believe Iago’s lies about his friends and wife, leading Othello to change his behavior towards his closest allies. Iago instigates a fight between Cassio and Montano, and Othello must take charge of his soldiers, he says: Thy honesty and love doth mince this matter, Making it light to Cassio. Cassio, I love thee But never more be officer of mine. (2.3.210-213) Othello makes the decision to fire Cassio, and things get worse when Iago makes his wife, Emilia, steal Desdemona 's handkerchief. Iago plants the handkerchief in Cassio’s lodging, and has a conversation with Othello about Cassio, saying: IAGO Nay, but be wise: yet we see nothing done; She may be honest yet.
The audience sympathise with King Lear’s redemption. Throughout the play, he gets a chance at redemption to make up for his mistake of having “thy truth being the dower:” for his daughter. He realises the folly of his actions and redeems himself stating “I am a very foolish fond old man”. This demonstrates King Lear's change in character as he learns that he is not as powerful as thinks he was and starts to become more humble. There is a lure of sympathy for King Lear because a story of redemption inspires people and catches their imagination, that anything is possible.
The Miller’s Tale however is more unacceptable because it includes adultery. His tale is of a love triangle but in his story, the woman in married to one man, meeting with another man, and being adored by yet another man. Despite the Miller’s great describing of his tale, I have proclaimed that the Knight’s Tale wins this battle based on each tellers’ social status, the basis of each story and it’s entirety, and the lesson taught in each story. The
As simple as the characters were, the situations arousing in the play became more complexed as scenes passed by. What led to the trouble and chaos in the play also led to the solution in the end, when Claudio and Don Pedro were deceived into thinking by Don John that Hero was unfaithful. That very same idea also solved the problem in the end when Leonato, Hero’s father, deceived Claudio by making him believe that she is dead and that it is his duty to clear Hero’s name by reading out on her tomb and marrying the said niece who looks just like Hero. Again the plotting against own is present where the said niece turns out to be Hero and she comes back to life again. Shakespeare, no doubt, solves almost
During my assessment I will be exploring how Beatrice and Benedick’s relationship develops throughout the play ‘much ado about nothing’. I will also explore how their relationship follows the conventions of a relationship in the Elizabethan era. Also how their relationship subverts conventions due to the common idea of looking at the outside appearance to fall in love, however they fall in love with each other due to their intellect; Claudio and Hero fall in love because of beauty. In the beginning of the play we see through Beatrice’s witty remarks on love of how she subverts normal conventions of marriage: “I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me”. This emphasises how she subverts normal conventions, she does not want a man to love whereas most women seemed to want to marry.
Romeo went to get a glimpse of love, not with the intentions to start trouble. In the first act, Benvolio was trying to make peace between the servants, and then Tybalt joined in and made it a brawl because he automatically assumed the worst. Both Capulet and Montague are ultimately responsible in the death of Mercutio because they, themselves, held the power to instill peace within the ranks and with their families. How many people had to fight and die because two men refused to put the good of the realm first? While they were able to make peace after the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, it took the tragic loss of important lives for them to finally burry the
Chillingworth is deceiving Dimmesdale by convincing him that he is his friend. “Come, good Sir, and my dearest friend, I pray you, let me lead you home!” (137). Chillingworth is persisting in his plan to destroy the man that destroyed his marriage with Hester. He is so good at acting like he is a friend that Dimmesdale is starting to let the only one who is planning to hurt him, in, and befriending him. Chillingworth's persistence is finally paying off.
Throughout the history of Shakespearen literature, Shakespeare tends to develop the characters in to a way that complements the story. For an example, in Macbeth, he shows the digression of the main character by an internal conflict residing from a mental condition, if he did not explain every detail of his thought process then the story would be bland and not a literature masterpiece. Another key example is the story of Romeo and Juliet, even though it is a romantic piece, he still assigns different personality traits to each character. Which makes them a key asset to how the story concludes and the theme the reader is left to discover. One of the biggest colliding character interactions is Benvolio and Tybalt.
