In Shakespeare’s, Julius Caesar, he portrays the conflict man vs self by informing people that it is human nature to make decisions based on other people’s points of view. He does this by using rhetoric, logos, and pathos to make one character or group persuaded by a single person or multiple people. Persuasion is used throughout the novel to entice a character to agree with another character. For example, Brutus does not want to kill Caesar, even though he does not want him to become king, but his other friends attempt to persuade him into believing that murdering one of his closest comrades is a good idea. Brutus tries to convince the conspirators why killing Caesar is wrong as well.

In the two amazing stories “Mending Wall” by Robert Frost and “The Interlopers” by Saki there are many ideas and examples that show things about feuds. These stories had me on the edge of my seat, wondering what would happen next. Frost and Saki use conflict and metaphors to convey the theme that feuds can be created because of prideful traditions which can hurt people mentally or physically. The following paragraphs will be showing how the literary devices of metaphor and conflict can give ideas of what feuds do. There will be examples of the authors using these devices to explain to that feuds are pointless and have no good use.
Literature is a wonderful thing; it explores the relationships between humans and their nature, historical events, and can be used to express one’s creativity. It can also be used to give moral guidance; this was Arthur Miller’s reasoning behind writing The Crucible. In this dramatic retelling of the Salem trials, Miller ensnares his reader with stories of adultery, betrayal, and material greed. His intention, however, is not to entertain with operatic drama. This play is a cautionary tale about finger pointing and its potentially fatal consequences.
All literature is written with a specific message that the writer is trying to convey. Inherit the Wind is a very complex play with several different themes, one of which is that one must look beyond the surface to seek the truth. Through the use of Drummond’s character, the rivalry between Drummond and Brady, and the contents of the trial itself, this play shows readers that things may not always be what they seem. Firstly, Drummond’s character may seem biased due to his position, but he is shown to be fair and open to all opinions. One example of this is when he ensures that the jury is impartial to both evolutionists and creationists.
Ignorance is all over the world as addressed in Robert Procter’s, “Agnotology.” Ignorance provides a basis for Trevor Noah’s, “Go Hitler!”. These readings are comparable in ways of the rhetorical elements of palilogy, logos and the use of narratives that speak to each validity of the readings. Noah uses effectual validity in “Go Hitler!” to support his claim of every culture teaching differently regarding historical events, yet Proctor uses factual validity in “Agnotology” to support his claim of people knowing an insufficient about ignorance. In both “Agnotology” and “Go Hitler!” people choose to ignore the truth and choose ignorance instead, and the implication this claim makes is that life is a never-ending series of ignoring the truth.
Antony is using physical evidence, in the form of a will ‘created’ by Caesar, to sway the Romans to his side and even though the evidence is fake, it still is evidence to the people and is making the them ponder how someone who is said to be ambitious could be so generous therefore fostering a reason for the Romans to stir themselves up to mutiny. Antony is using direct evidence so that the plebeians, who are simple people, have an observable object that they can see so they have physical proof of Caesar’s goodness therefore proving that Antony’s usage of logos is the most effective reversing the intense hatred the had against Caesar to an absolute devotion to
Deviation – The important issue of the intolerance towards Deviations is shown through the extreme reaction of Joseph to David’s comment; “I could have managed it all by myself if I’d had another hand” in which Joseph responded with “… You – my own son – were calling upon the Devil to give you another hand!” (Chapter 3. Page 26). Throughout the novel, the theme of Deviation is a constant them that is continuously carried along the story and is in fact the main focus of the book. The attitudes brought forward to the protagonists, for this reason, is an important factor in deciding how the reader will view them and will also impact their choices on their future course of action. However, if they had been accepted by society, the telepaths including David, Rosalind, and Petra would not have chosen to run away from society and run such a risk to their lives.
Appearance versus reality is a common theme found among Shakespeare's plays, as seen in “Othello”. It becomes apparent that this deception can lead to the ultimate destruction of a character in Shakespeare's plays. Othello is manipulated by the jealous villain Iago as he encourages him to misinterpret what he sees, steering Othello away from the truth. Othello is susceptible to Iago's ploys due to the fact that he himself is so honest and straightforward, “For when my outward action doth demonstrate the
In this case “one person and one line of inquiry at a time” This quote suggests how Inspector Goole works methodically to show his power towards the family. This gives the reader an idea of how seriously the inspector takes his job and how he establishes the way he is going to question each character, not only giving him the opportunity of playing with the each character’s culpability throughout the play, but also to clarify his power towards the pace of the interrogations and the speed the play has,demonstrating his control over the position all the characters are . Priestley also uses the quote “determined what happened to her afterwards may have driven her to suicide. A chain of events.” This quote displays the
