Cassio then assures Iago not to worry about his actions and that, “‘Tis my breeding/That gives me this bold show of courtesy,” (II.I110-111). Cassio explains that he credits his good manners and “show of courtesy” to his righteous upbringing. Later in Act II, as Iago further develops his plan to exact revenge on Othello for awarding Cassio the position as lieutenant, Iago decides that he will make Othello think that Desdemona and Cassio are having an affair. In Act II Scene III, as Iago tries to trick Cassio into saying something about Desdemona that he could use as proof for his plan, Cassio remains unaffected by Iago’s statements, and continues to present himself in the most sincere and polite-seeming way. As Iago attempts to make Cassio see Desdemona as an object of sexual desire, Cassio compliments Desdemona by saying, “She’s a most exquisite lady,”
From ruining lives to creating new ones, it inarguably takes away what little innocence still remains in men. Betrayal, like many things, may only be seen for the negative impacts it has on life. However, in defiance of the agony, it can show the true nature of men and what they do when they let covetousness and their weak human nature rule them. However, as demonstrated in The Count of Monte Cristo, it is possible to rebound from this defeat, using the knowledge learned from the experience as a way to regain what was
Creon was told exactly what would happen if he did not undo his actions now he did but when he was first presented with the prophecy he rejected it and in doing so disrespected the gods so then the prophecy was fulfilled. This is another reason why Creon is the tragic hero. To sum up, Creon is the tragic hero of antigone. Creon is the tragic hero of Antigone because Through Creon 's strong pride he brings doom upon himself and his family.
Rather than giving into her own desires, Ophelia listens to her father because women were supposed to listen to their parents before making their own decisions. Hamlet also criticizes Ophelia for having sex with him, telling her that she should go to a nunnery. Hamlet himself does
When someone is full of pride, they cannot love others for who they are and tend to make bad decisions. The narrator only cared about himself and wanted to kill Doodle for his own personal gain. His pride took him over and led him into making the wrong choice. Then after the pride came the guilt that followed. It can be inferred that he will never be able to forgive himself after what he did.
By examining pride’s role in “The Scarlet Ibis” and in real life, it is evident that pride can be dangerous and destructive. In “The Scarlet Ibis”, the narrator’s pride ultimately caused the death of his brother and brought him pain and suffering. Since the narrator was only motivated by his selfish pride, he kept pushing Doodle harder and harder, without regard for his brother’s feelings or well-being. If he had acted out of love instead of pride, he would have been gentle and compassionate when he helped his brother, therefore preventing his death.
Orgon is blinded by his admiration of Tartuffe. Without Orgon seeing for himself, he would never believe that Tartuffe could have deceived him. Moliere makes Tartuffe betrays others by his remarkable gestures of humiliation and aid. Moliere uses satire to emphasize the truth about Tartuffe’s lust for Elmire.
Both Francesca and Ugolino’s judgements resulted from deliberation and thought, and both of their thoughts were greatly influenced by their oppressed state and some biological factors. They were diverted away from the First good, which made them turn toward the apparent goods. The use of free will in the Inferno served as a path to sin for both Francesca and Ugolino. Dante recognizes that Francesca had very weak control over her judgements, and that love overpowered her, but he also made it clear that she deserves to be in hell. As for Ugolino, he also used his free will to resist loving his sons.
“ 'Tis true, this god did shake;/ His coward lips did from their colour fly,” says Cassius, again reminding Brutus in just one statement that Caesar is too powerful even though he is not strong. The things Cassius says are meant to resonate with Brutus, and in the end the honor that Cassius has used against him and the growing belief that Caesar does not make a good ruler, particularly since they shouldn’t place the power in one man’s hands, convinces Brutus to join the conspiracy. Metaphors, similes, and imagery are used to convince Brutus that Caesar is not a powerful leader and someone like him needs to push Caesar out of power. This is important because it starts Brutus thinking about how they could just kill Caesar and do away with their problems. Brutus joining
Again letting his untrusting self get in the way he hurt an old friend by accusing him of seeking money in exchange for his wisdom. Creon often let his untrusting nature get the better of him, and this caused him to make choices that would weaken relationships between some of his closest allies. To conclude, in the play Antigone Creon, the ruler of Thebes, had his core values impact his choices which led to his entire family's fatalities. Creon's hatred for traitors played a bug role in these choices. Also impacting Creon's choices greatly was his valuing his beloved city more than he valued his
Her true self is clear when she has a conversation about Hamlet, first with Laertes, her brother, then with Polonius, her father. After Laertes advises Ophelia to fear Hamlet and to be cautious with him, she replies by telling him not to lecture her (Act: I: Scene: 3: Lines 48-50). She is able to criticize her brother to some extent, but when her father gives her the same lecture as he did and tells her not to accept Hamlet’s hand, she simply replies, “I shall obey, my lord” (Act: I: Scene 3: Line 135). This early scene in the play sets up Ophelia’s mood. Although Ophelia wants to believe Hamlet is true to her and “Hath given countenance to his speech…With almost all the holy vows of heaven” (Act: I: Scene: 3: Lines: 112-113), she must listen to her father and follow his orders.
Also, Friar Laurence never knew that the letter would not get to Romeo. Secondly, Friar Laurence was the one who married them in the first place. He knew that they were forbidden to get married. He thought that if he married them, the drama and fighting between their families would stop. Friar Laurence states ¨in one respect I´ll assist be; For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households rancor to pure love¨(980)
He proves his intelligence and strength. He remains positive and calm no matter the circumstance. His flaw is that he is too good-hearted, which in the end, gets him killed. Both Maximus Meridius and Captain John H. Miller have the qualities of a tragic hero, which are: a high position, a fatal flaw, and a downfall caused by their flaw. It is clear that Miller is a superior example of a tragic hero because he displays a larger amount of humanly traits such as fear and his situation is tragic because if he was still alive, his life could have been better, he could have been around the love of his life, unlike
Ashley Adegbite Ms Milliner EES21QH-05 1/20/17 Mindset and grit are equaled to success. Growth mindset is the belief that people can get smarter by working harder and practicing. Fixed mindset is the thought that talent and skills develop success without putting any effort. Grit is determination to stick to one thing until you have mastered it. There are certain decisions that an individual makes that will impact grit.
Oxley Morgan Ms.Milliner EES21QH-05 1/18/17 Final Paper Throughout the play of Othello many characters had different mindsets and the way they displayed grit was also unique to each characters. One can say that each character had they own fair share of grittiness during the play. However I ultimately define mindset as a belief or beliefs that people have overtime that helps to shape the way they think. You can also say that grit is the determination to do something or achieve something.
