Aaron however, has a dark attitude every time he speaks. Even though Cassius does plot against Caesar, he does it for political reasons only, while Aaron obviously hates the world and tells Luscious that he enjoyed doing all the evil things he has done and would do it ten thousand more times. They don’t exactly show the same attitude because these characters are not part of the same play. Titus Andronicus is a revenge tragedy and Julius Caesar is a political play, therefore Cassius is a politician who does anything in his power to protect Rome and its citizens. This is also why Aaron does evil things to Rome; he had a dark tone every time he spoke because he needs to get revenge.
Adams prompts her son to improve his leader-like qualities by exploring and becoming familiar with the unknown. In doing so, she compares him to be like the prominent leaders of the past, for a great demeanor is formed by gaining the courage to overcome obstacles. Adams’s supports her advice with various rhetorical strategies including her ambitions and credibility as a mother, as well as her appeal to logos. Throughout her letter, Adams assures her son of his promising attributes. She appeals to pathos by deliberately emphasizing her motherly nature.
One must always have something to gain from a friendship, or loose from the lack of it. That is why Brutus killed you, to make sure that you do not grow tyrannical. You’re friendship with Brutus was of comparatively little value to his loyalty to Rome. So, Brutus betrayed you. The same way, Antony acted as if he was supporting the Roman citizens when giving Caesar’s eulogy.
These actions involve several important characteristics in heroes, but not the most important characteristic: honesty. Being honest in a situation where one’s life might be on the line is something that is hard for the average person to accomplish. Proctor exhibits this honesty when he is given the opportunity to save himself from being hung by telling a lie, but instead he rips up his lie and shows everyone that he has the capability to do the right thing: “I can. And there’s your first marvel, that I can. You have made your magic now, for now I do think I see some shred of goodness in John Proctor” (Miller 1333).
In the beginning of The Giver, Jonas was missing the quality to that would allow him to fight against the government. However, after becoming the receiver of memory he began to obtain that quality. “He would need those to help him find the elsewhere they were sure existed. They knew it would be a very difficult journey.” We can tell that because he was willing, nothing would be able to stop him from rebelling, even though he could die. Harrison is also very willing.
Most if not all crimes committed over the course of the play can be traced back to the very first scene, when a victorious Titus returns to Rome after a ten-year war, waged against the Goths, with Tamora, the queen of the Goths, three of her sons, and other Goths in tow. Lucius, Titus’s eldest son, then calls for the execution of Alarbus, Tamora’s eldest son and “the noblest [Goth] that survives,” to appease the spirits of the Romans who died in battle (I.I.105). Tamora begs for Titus to spare Alarbus; in doing so, she tries to appeal to his own status as a parent. Despite her emotional plea, Titus refuses, claiming that “[her] son is marked, and die he must / T’appease their groaning shadows that are gone” (I.I.129). Willis aptly describes the ritual sacrifice of Alarbus as “[...] designed to help survivors of combat cope with the loss of fallen comrades-in this case, comrades who are also family members-and [...] prerequisite for proper burial” (Willis 35).
The importance of relationships between father and son are presented in The Odyssey with the ancient Greek values of home and respect of elders. For instance, Odysseus and Telemachus’ love for eachother is shown through their long voyages to find one another which reunites them in the end. Without their strong father-son relationship, they may not have had the desire to search for one another which would have led to a significantly different plot and end result. In the end, Telemachus’ joy is greatly expressed when he discovers Odysseus which further proves their undeniable friendship and bond. Another example of a strong father and son relationship is presented by the love Poseidon and Polyphemus have towards each other.
He is a single father who raises his kids the best he can. The way in which Harper Lee makes him act toward his children makes him a truly ideal father. Atticus embodies the ideal father in how he raises, cares for, and protects Scout and Jem throughout the novel. One way in which Atticus embodies the ideal father is the way he teaches his children lessons. You can spot two distinct
Tamora’s resolve get the most violent revenge possible – ‘I’ll find a day to massacre them all, | And raze their faction and their family (1.1.455-6) – continues into her implementing the same inhuman brutality that has been displayed by the Romans. The atrociousness that took place against Lavinia is a gruesome, yet critical, component of the play. The episode brings sexual violence into the story, and ushers in a conspicuous stretch of verbal violence – that is inherent in the speech. The sexually vicious conversation between Chiron and Demetrius is both sexist and masochistic: ‘Stay, madam, here is more belongs to her [Lavinia]: | First thrash the corn, then after burn the straw. | This minion stood upon her chastity’
Emotion tied all these men together. They told the citizens and even themselves at times that their actions were for the good of Rome but could never give good reason as to how. Each man, Brutus as an exception, had personal hatred for Caesar. They even rejected plans to kill Antony- Caesar’s companion- in addition, because he hadn’t done anything to them. This was extremely poor planning.
