Ransom should have made the Lady understand that she should obey Maleldil because she loves Him, to disobey Him is to hate and distrust Him. To obey Him is to love and trust Him. Ransom did not use it and so could not defend the Lady properly. Only till he acts and attacks the Un-man does he fulfill his role as Kinsman
I am firmly opposed to the manipulation of one’s subjects for the better of the ruler. Machiavelli’s concept for a prince’s soldiers is a malicious brainwash. A feared ruler will only induce despise from his people. I regard Machiavelli’s justification for a prince containing aspects of evil to be a unethical form of governing a society. His depiction of a feared ruler disregards the prosperity of his people and does not account for their pursuit of happiness.
The ironic paradox that there are choices in politics, yet at the same time Irwin does not have a choice when blackmailed, shows the unfairness of extortion, and demonstrates the fallacy, argumentum ad baculum: a threat that does not offer the audience options (Heinrichs 178). Furthermore, Jack attempts to downplay the unethicality of extortion by redefining blackmail as pressure because it “is a prettier word” (Warren 483). By rejecting the opponent’s definition, Jack avoids validating Irwin’s argument (Heinrichs 117). Due to its immorality, Willie’s decision to blackmail Irwin resulted in the corruption of justice, symbolized through Irwin, and ultimately lead to his suicide. Thus, Irwin’s death showed that the unfairness of blackmail overpowered Willie’s logic behind extortion, but in reality, both sides lost since Willie’s threat failed and Irwin’s newfound information led to his demise.
An era not only exploring love but rather the mortality of character and the shape of which identity takes place. Contrastingly, Browning explores a romantic vision of love through the subversion of the traditional petrarchan form, whilst also exploring the transcendence of life and the social aspects of identity. Thus, through the comparison of The Great Gatsby and Sonnets From The Portuguese one is able to witness human desire in a (something) of context. The desire for a spiritual and transcendent love is a key motivator behind Barrett Browning 's sonnet sequence, with her ideals greatly contrasting the rational and restricting notions associated within the Victorian period. Specifically, this is witnessed through her subversion of the traditional petrarchan form,
Unbeknownst to Beatrice, she is paired with Benedick and begins to fall for him. This creates dramatic irony because the audience knows the truth while Beatrice is left in the dark. Eventually, she learns that her secret lover’s identity and leads to her iconic soliloquy, “What fire is in mine ears? Can this be true? Stand I condemn’d for pride and scorn so much?
Moreover, Claudio's quickness on believing that Broachio, who claims to be Hero’s supposed lover, comes to show that he is unworthy of her. On their wedding he publicly shamed her by stating, “Give not this rotten orange to your friend…Behold how like a maid she blushes here” (4.1.32-34). This then causes Leonato to fake Hero’s “death” so that Claudio can grieve her memory and admit that he was wrong on publicly bashing her. Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing revolves around the manipulation and deceptions. Benedict and Beatrice are deceived for their own good.
Danforth's power blinds him to the truth, and prevents him from seeing the effect that his actions have on the lives of innocent people Arthur Miller argues that being fearful or damaging one's reputation is what caused people to act irrationally and against their morals, coming off as selfish and arrogant, and leading to the Salem Witch Hysteria. Through the characterization of Hale, Parris and Danforth, it is evident how excessive pride makes people unwilling to admit to their mistakes, with the fear of a reputation damage. Miller's descriptions of the frailty of arrogance, can be used as an example of how arrogance turns people against each
In this case both definitions are applicable; one to each story. 5In Lanval this evil is shown through Queen Guenevere when she offers herself to Lanval despite her being married to King Henry and Lanval being a knight in service of King Henry (lines 261-274); she attempts and fails to corrupt him but her intent is still there. Lanval however politely refuses her because this would obviously be treason and his heart is already taken so he won’t betray his king nor his love. When this happens the Queen gets angry and lies to the king. She tells him that Lanval has come onto him and that when she refused him he insulted her by saying that the lowliest in his lover’s court is many times lovelier than the queen.
Men find themselves drawn to Daisy and her alluring tone when she speaks. While the image of money is so captivating, money causes problems of envy and greed in this materialistic society they live in. Upholding Daisy as a golden girl, an ideal that is unrealistic, portrays Daisy as only an object of Gatsby’s affection. After Daisy chooses not to reject Tom’s love for Gatsby’s, Gatsby frustration is expressed to Nick as he says, "You must remember, old sport, she was very excited this afternoon. He told her those things in a way that frightened her – that made it look as if I was some kind of cheap sharper.
However, this truth remains unknown to Parris, so one has to analyze the situation from his point of view. Disregarding the truth, the first thing Parris worries about is his own name and reputation, instead of his daughter’s wellbeing. Thus, having his estate and daughter involved with witchcraft and unnatural events obviously threatens his rank as a revered. While arguing with Abigail, he says “my ministry’s at stake, my ministry and perhaps your cousin’s life”(Miller, 11), explicitly revealing how he places the importance of his name before Betty’s own sake. Parris is afraid of what others might think of him and avoids facing the congregation in order to evade the topic of witchcraft.
