In this scene it is evident that Prospero suffered from both psychological and physical violence bestowed upon him by his brother Antonio. Evidently Antonio’s wish was to have Prospero and his daughter killed however they were saved by Gonzalo a trustful councilor who set them up for a prosperous life on the island. It becomes clear that the violence in this play caused by Prospero was brought upon him and is therefore influenced by his brother’s treatment towards him, again we see that the need for power overpowers the love between the two brothers and later leads to a series of psychological torture for other
Diamond supplements this story with that of his father-in-law, Jozef, who, when given the opportunity to exact revenge on the man who brutally murdered his family during World War II, decided to place the murderer in the hands of the legal system. The man was released, leaving Jozef burdened with a sense of “guilt that he had not been able to protect his parents, and regret that he had failed in his responsibility to take vengeance” (11). On the basis of these narratives, Diamond advocates for a more widespread acceptance of the natural desire for revenge, an emotion which in is view is much like that of “love, anger, grief, and fear” (12). He concludes that great relief that can be supplied by properly expressing and acknowledging our thirst for vengeance. Taking a position so contrary to
he Most Dangerous Game Around the time after World War 1 on Ship-Trap Island, Rainsford, the protagonist of this fantastic prose, goes through a dynamic internal change. In his short story, “The Most Dangerous Game”, Richard Connell, portrays and paints a picture of how civilization and society can ever defeat a man’s murderous drive; the instinct in a man that pressures him on to perform a murderous task. Connell also touches on how the roles can change: the dominant can become subservient or less than, and how the forceful and strong minded can become the weaker ones. He tries to make the reader understand that to be successful, the hunter (the strong), must imitate the hunted (the weak); the man must act the animal, and civilization must impersonate and hide its brutality. The major conflict reflects dynamic change in the main
He also uses these devices to show that society is partly to blame for this butchery and could have avoided this ridiculous situation had they changed. His most powerful device, however, is emotion, by reminding the court of how these boys’ families will be crushed and their future generations shamed, should the court decide on the death penalty. Darrow’s perspective is that war transformed society, which then taught these boys to place a cheap value on human life. Darrow uses historical references to establish that the world has been drastically influenced by brutality and these ways of violence have been taught to the younger generations. He states: “These boys were brought up in it.
However, a jealous Jack decides to lead his group against Ralph, and turns them into savages that create disastrous results. In the Lord of the Flies, William Golding uses the hero Ralph and his journey in a heroic quest archetype to portray the theme of civilization against savagery
It is imperative to recognize the fact that the evil that men do live after them and is strongly represented and illustrated by in the play The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, in the film Valkyrie, and in the case of NFL quarterback Michael Vick. In the play, The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Written by William Shakespeare clearly shows that the evil that men do lives long after them and the good stays in their bones. While Brutus was simply attempting to do a good deed by slaying the great Caesar and freeing Rome for him, Antony thought different and was only doing it for the conspirators and his own allegations. Antony’s remarks to the Romans, “In this place
Victor has now revealed his inclination to imagine a crime committed by someone and quickly believe it as true; in this case, his accusations will always go towards the creature, because of his relentless hate for the being, and he will always believe the creature to be a criminal. In the same way that Victor changes his mind to suit his convenience, he can believe at once that a person has wronged him, at least when it is a person he detests, such as his creation. Such are the qualities of a man who, though monstrous, is not a monster in nature, unlike his
Trevor being someone who once pertained to an upper class gives the wooden struts holding up the house true significance as it's illustrating him being on the verge of not letting go of his past or just moving on from it. Trevor’s attempts to change the separations society has created for himself and others further displays the confliction he has with himself as he struggles to deal with his past and current life. In addition to this, with the look of his “grey and disturbed” eyes, Trevor plans to organize a way in which he and the gang can “destroy” the house (44). Trevor wanting to demolish the house with a look of grey and disturbed eyes demonstrates how he hasn't really given up on his old life but is rather stuck in between. Also, the idea of destroying the house that represents the wealthy trying to hang onto that upper hierarchy reveals Trevor’s desire to completely get rid of his past life and divisions within society.
The dominant class or the class with the power, better known as Andrew’s former employers use their social power to fire him unjustly because of his sexual orientation and recently discovered ailment. Conflict theories such as stereotypes, discrimination, inequality and sexuality all have starring roles in this film. Joe Miller stereotypes an entire group of people when he is “hit on” in a drug store, by asking the other male, “if he looked gay”, as if gay men, all look a certain way. Discrimination, inequality and sexuality are the main conflict theories expressed in this film. It is the entire reason why the film exists and why Andrew Beckett sued his former employer; simultaneously succeeding in life as well as in death.
