For Art, this barrier is his fragility and silence. His inability to speak symbolizes how others refuse to understand him. Those characteristics make it more difficult to be friends with him than it would be to befriend a flesh-and-blood person. In Art’s case, his condition of inflatability engenders a dislike of the unfamiliar in others. For this reason, it is easier for someone to merely make assumptions based on Art’s outward appearance and behavior than to put in the effort to foster a real relationship and become informed on his condition.
Lewis’s pause emphasizes the irony in Antony’s speech and maintains Antony’s conspicuous ambiguity. Through the subtle delivery, powerful expressions, and well-timed intonation, Antony’s message is effectively delivered and his character revealed. It shows that Antony is a loyal, consummate, and persuasive person who is a master at delivering his thoughts. Thus, Damian Lewis has done an exceptional job in delivering the oration and illustrating the

It also requires the ability and willingness to collaborate with the storyteller and tolerated his capriciousness. Even I Diderot, as written by Robert Alter (1975, p. 82), does not publish a fatalist Jacques knowing that his work deserves an audience that will appreciate it more than it did his contemporaries and leaves it for
Throughout the story, the officer appears as a man with values and principles, yet acts with total ignorance of either compassion or sympathy because of the power he holds with the apparatus. The officer does not feel responsible for his immorality and in fact, does not see himself as being immoral. He also does not see the point in telling a prisoner the reason why he is being executed. He proudly informs the traveler: “the principle on which I base my decisions is: guilt is always beyond doubt” (Kafka 199). This idea suggests that all are to assume execution and that actual facts do not matter.
Well, he is not by nature a bloodthirsty murderer; he actually has a soft heart and is tormented by the sight of human suffering, which he is unable and unwilling to get used to. " Man grows used to everything, the scoundrel!" he mutters, but then directly embraces the opposing position: " And what if I 'm wrong … what if man is not really a scoundrel … then all the rest is prejudice, simply artificial terrors and there are no barriers
He believed that the people of earth were not taking heed of God’s word and that they were indulging in the seven deadly sins. Despite the fact that he is a loner who does not have much to his name, he does not seem to fit the profile of someone who is motivated by strain theory. Doe does not have tangible motives, and he has the means to achieve the motives that he does have. This means that he is not committing his crimes due to feeling strained by society, but that he’s doing it because it’s his goal. Comparatively, I believe Doe’s killings would relate more the rational choice theory.
Malvolio is the enforcer of rules in Twelfth Night, but only when it best serves him. He acts as a distinct contrast to the other minor characters in the play. Maria, Fabian, Sir Toby and Sir Andrew all tend to enjoy frivolity and this is not the lifestyle that Malvolio approves of. He acts as though he is sound of morals and uses logic at all times but the moment his dreams can be achieved he has no qualms about doing whatever he can to get them.
Alexander did not exhibit three characteristics of a good leader that was talked about which is that a good leader should be nonviolent, rational, and unselfish. Alexander handled the people of Persepolis violently. He was also irrational in how he handled other cities along with how he thought of other people without thinking about how his actions may have affected how other people thought of him. Alexander was not only selfish in thinking only of himself to where he caused disgust amongst his men, but he was so selfish to where he even became cruel to his friends. People may say Alexander did good things, but he lacked important characteristics a good leader needs to have to be able to rule their people well and successfully not just as a leader, but a respectable role model to look up
As related earlier, catharsis aims to elicit pity and fear in order to purge such emotions from the audience. As such, the tragic hero’s punishment must not be considered entirely deserved otherwise it would be seen as justice and the cathartic effect would not take place. Instead, the punishment must be somewhat excessive so that pities the tragic hero for his misfortune as well as fears for their own lives after seeing the world is not always fair. However, in order to confirm that Oedipus’ punishment exceeds his crime, both must be identified. Oedipus’ crime is quite simply his attempt to escape his own fate.
The purpose of the mask varies by person and their situation. In the Ender’s case, it reveals his internal conflict of how he despises being the only one to show sympathy towards the buggers. Even when Peter forced Ender to wear the bugger mask, instead of showing more hatred towards the bugger, he understood them as a living thing. He placed himself in their shoes, ironically as it sounds, and scrutinized about their feelings toward the humans.
Understanding the character, Chillingworth, depends on what person is interpreting him. If a certain person grew up knowing betrayal in their life, they might sympathize and affiliate themselves with Chillingworth. Others on the other hand may find it generally problematic to understand Chillingworth. He has had a lack of appreciation and does not deserve the hostility that is given towards him. Chillingworth’s transgression was only tormenting Dimmesdale’s wrongdoing and keeping him alive to do so.
While he does not focus on pragmatic benefits of voting, MacDougall still makes a convincing case by appealing to emotions and history in a way that causes readers to feel that it is wrong not to
