Lord Henry enthralled Dorian Gray with his world view, which was an extreme hedonism form as he assumed that the only worthwhile life of a person spent was by pursuing beauty and satisfaction for the senses. His views, opinions and influences captivated by Dorian Gray which continuously encourages Dorian Gray into bad things. The third main character is Basil Hallward who was an artist that paints a picture of Dorian Gray and thus, becomes obsessed with him as Dorian Gray’s beauty was Basil’s art object. Basil feelings towards Dorian were left unclear, likely because in that time, those who involved in homosexual are going to be punish be society. ‘The Picture Of Dorian Gray’ book, Oscar Wilde emphasized some relationships which were Basil Hallward and Lord Henry were friends of Dorian Gray, but, as I reach to the middle pages, Basil had feelings for Dorian Gray as he even confessed to Dorian in Dorian’s
Mercutio is a foil to Romeo and makes Romeo’s view of love stand out to the readers, by showing his own opinions of love. Mercutio believes that “dreamers often lie” (1.4.56) and lovers dream of love. This shows that Mercutio thinks that love is just an illusion, this contradicts the views of Romeo and Juliet who believe they are deeply in love. By putting these two characters by each other, the reader can clearly see their different views. Mercutio also is used for comic relief.
Heartbreak and vengeance make the perfect cocktail for any juicy story, but so does the concept of a twisted illusion of reality. Stories of passion such as, Evona Darling written by Silas House and My Ex-Husband written by Gabriel Spera, are both examples of stories that give the reader the equation of love and hate entwined together with the tainted sense of reality. House descriptively writes a story about the passion of a mother’s love whose heart has been taken away by her child’s father, who through suspicious friends got Evona’s custody stripped away from her. On the other hand, Spera creates her poem in her perspective of being married to a man that betrayed her and played his cards of deceit. Both stories were passionately written after love had partaken, but the fairy tale ends had come upon them.
Overall, Shakespeare has presented love as a complex theme throughout Act 1 by consistently showing how love can either end in happiness or hurt. Many of the character throughout the play seem to view love as a curse placed onto people and as something that causes indescribable pain; whereas others view love as something that brings them happiness and joy. These two ideas greatly contrast each other exemplifying how complex love really is. Furthermore, the play as a whole shows how love cannot jump over every hurdle placed in front of it and when it fails to make it over that hurdle the characters feel great
Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” was a classical satire that explored the ridiculousness of victorian society and manners. Wilde’s purpose in creating this satire was to awaken the people. By exaggerating about ridiculous details, it also allowed people to see more clearly about the reality of this society. One example is when Lady Bracknell wanted Jack to find his parents: “I would strongly advise…… to produce at any rate one parent, of either sex.” (Wilde, 995). This shows the the reader that the society is very unreasonable and ridiculous.
Finally, he shows jealousy because he gets upset when others can make his wife smile or blush, even though those reactions could be completely innocent and automatic. Jealousy is a common human behavior but Browning exaggerates it to emphasis his point. “My Last Duchess” is written in iambic pentameter with rhymes. Another poem that points out human behaviors is “This Is Just To Say” by William Williams. This poem is very direct and says exactly what it means, the narrator ate the plums even though he knew that he should not and then asks for forgiveness.
The overtaking of bourgeoisie and inequalities between the rich and the poor affected Chekhov greatly and it caused him to include these points in his play. The author referred to the play as “A comedy in four acts,” showing that none of the parts of the play was ever meant to be a tragedy. However, the play is interpreted as a tragedy due to the unfortunate events that occur, such as the Grisha’s death, the loss of the family’s home and the beloved cherry orchard. Despite Chekhov’s disapproval and tragic views towards the inequalities between the classes of society, the audience found it as a comedic aspect, as the rich became poor and the poor became rich. This can be seen within the characters such as Lubov Ranevskaya and Lopakhin.
Lord Henry loves to manipulate people and he fined Dorian as well for manipulation. Lord Henry terrifies Dorian about losing his beauty in old-age. The readers also feel something for beauty and youth as well while considering their conversation. Henry also relates beauty with genius by saying “Beauty is a form of
Irwin Goldstein once stated, “The symbolic meaning of words can be so powerful that people are willing to risk their lives for them or take the lives of others”. That makes this story so universal. Some of the obvious symbols are the rose in the title and Emily herself. The rose is a symbol for both love and death. The red rose is the most common sign of affection, people give them all the time to show how much people mean to them, especially romantically.
Decadent and incident denationalization processes turned over the major stately owned firms to politic "oligarchs", which has left equity ownership highly concentrated (Economy.gov.ru).
