Macbeth’s quick transition of concern from Banquo to Fleance exhibits his disregard to the people close to him, a distinct behavior often tied to sociopathic people. Macbeth’s calm and collected attitude after the news of Banquo’s murder is unnerving and frightening, especially after seeing how affected he had been at the murder of King Duncan. When killing King Duncan, Macbeth was thoughtless and anxious, but when planned the murder of Banquo Macbeth was cool minded and collected. Macbeth was once a trustworthy man, but now is a disrespectful and violent king. Furthermore, after Banquo’s murder, his body is shown no respect as “Safe in a ditch he bides,/With twenty trenchèd gashes on his head” (Shakespeare 101).
Why isn’t the minister seen as a horrible person and Chillingworth is? In the Book The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Dimmesdale, the Minister, has committed this terrible crime and some feel bad for him. This could be because Hester loves him; they are meant to be together. It’s interesting how Chillingworth can be seen as evil, but he is the one that was cheated on. He has mentally tortured Dimmesdale; obsessed with wanting him to suffer more that he has.
In “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Poe the narrator feels the need to justify his reasoning for being bothered by the old man’s eye. He knows this is wrong, but in his mind if he justifies it and actually makes sense then it is okay. “Whenever it fell upon on me, my blood ran cold, and so by degrees, very gradually, I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and this rid myself of the eye forever.” Poe. This sounds very devious and selfish right? The man knows this and feels bad for not liking the man’s eye, but believes his reason makes it okay.
Later, Angus tells him that this “robe” fits loosely on him and is not appealing. Angus is suggesting that if the “robe” doesn 't fit than he will make a poor leader and is not qualified for the country. In addition, after Macbeth takes Duncan’s authority, “robes” make another parallel by implying he stole his throne to by murder. Another key point, these scenes show with power and other things in life you either work and deserve something or
Furthermore, cowardly acts makeup Dimmesdale’s flaw; this prevents him from being an effective minister in the town. Dimmesdale’s flaw and almost every other fatal flaw brings destruction to the one that they control. In The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne shows how Dimmesdale fills his life with cowardice; Dimmesdale’s flaw allows him to employ logos, leading him to negatively impact the community, and, gradually, his flaw led him to his demise. Throughout The Scarlet Letter, Dimmesdale suffers from the fatal flaw of cowardice. After Hester’s refusal to confess, Dimmesdale’s relief showed: “‘She will not speak!’ murmured Mr. Dimmesdale, who, leaning over the balcony, with his hand upon his heart, had awaited the
Thinking of the deeds he has done, he reasons that “For them the gracious duncan have I murder'd” (35). His statement is selfish because slaughter is suddenly unjustifiable once it affects others positively, rather than just himself. His role as a king has skewed his perception so much that his friends are his enemies and his murders become aimless. Macbeth’s elation from power is rendered by his worries of losing it, revealing his true self in the process. His concerns stem from jealousy and thoughts of his wrong deeds being exposed, which in turn motivate him to act against his closest friend.
He uses emotional words and sayings like “ungrateful” and “inmost parts of my soul” to really drive home that fact that he felt personally victimized by their betrayal. Henry’s speech was relatively persuasive in the fact that he seemed to actually tell how he felt toward his men, but not really in convincing the men who already betrayed him that they did
As well, Mr. Bennet and Elizabeth were able to figure out that Mr. Collins is not a sensible man because he was apologize for his inheritance of the Bennet’s house even though it something that he has no control over. Furthermore, in Mr. Collins second letter it’s very clear how insensitive Mr. Collins is when he tells Mr. Bennet "The death of your daughter would have been a blessing in comparison of this". In conclusion, this is how Mr. Collins personality is revealed by the use of his
that this too too solid flesh would melt") is disturbing- it shows us the unsettled and broken man the young prince has become, and the instability of his mind. However, it also calls out to those of us who have experienced the same dark thoughts as Prince Hamlet. It is not uncommon to wonder about life after death and the existence of a God, but his suicidal thoughts call out to a smaller audience- those who have faced the same struggles Hamlet does, and this shows us the darker but more human side of the prince in a different light.The members of this group see themselves in his soliloquys and relate to his constant fear and delight at the idea of death. The existential crisis the young prince suffers throughout the course of the play can also raise many questions for the audience, as well as for Hamlet. As we analyse the play more closely it is more likely that we will try to answer some of the questions Hamlet asks in his soliloquys ("For in that sleep of death what dreams may come", "For who would bear the whips and scorns of time...
The specialty of investigation all alone rejects the basic simple clarifications yet rather bargains in the mind boggling actualities. In spite of the fact that Iago is the regular disturbance and accordingly the conspicuous awful person, his fate is to make the disaster that this play later moves toward becoming. A protracted thought notwithstanding a receptive outlook will demonstrate the reality of the situation. Othello is the real miscreant. Despite the fact that he at first does not have any vindictive considerations and thoughts, he in the long run becomes a murderer due to emotionally untrustworthy and jealousy.
The story is a metaphor because it is comparing the family’s current situation with the situation of the suicidal man. For instance, in the story she does not like that the suicidal man’s privacy is being invaded and Granny is mad that the cameramen are invading her privacy as well. The diction she uses shows that she is unhappy that the man’s privacy is being invaded through the use of words like “misery”, which indicates unhappiness with a situation, and “messin with him” which has a disgraced or even angry tone. The diction within the story solidifies the metaphor between it and her current situation because it reveals that she does not like that the suicidal man’s privacy was being invaded, similarly to her current situation and how she is mad about her privacy being invaded. The metaphor is important because it shows that Granny believes that she deserves privacy and a suicidal man does as well.
It made me sick. I was just disgusted” (240). As Perry commits the immoral acts, he recognizes his actions are wrong.
