B. W. Schlegel comments on King Lear's state, saying that: The three field dignity of a king, an old man, and a father, is dishonored by the cruel ingratitude of his unnatural daughters; the old Lear, who out of foolish tenderness has given away everything, is driven out to the world a wandering beggar, the childish imbecility to which he was fast advancing change into the wildest insanity…. ( Wilders, 1988:213-214). According to Elizabethans, daughters should obey and submit to their father's authority. On contrary this attitude is broken by Goneril and Regan, who are refused to behave like good, submissive Renaissance women; both of them seem to be ungrateful towards their father. In fact one can say that in King Lear "the children seem to be ungrateful with their parents and the old must be destroyed by the young".(Mure,1965:liii-xliii).
He shows this quality throughout the six books. One example is in Book 10. When his comrades are losing hope of getting back to Ithaca, he tells them,”O friends, however sad, let’s not descend to Hades’s halls before our destined day. No, just as long as there is food and drink in our swift ship, forget your fears of starving (Mandelbaum, Book X, pg. 196).” In Book 16, Odysseus had arrived on Ithaca, and plotted with his son Telemachus to kill the suitors who were trying to marry his wife, Penelope, for the past 20 years.
Winston always had his suspicions about O’Brien and whether or not he refused the orthodoxy of Oceania. His suspicions were confirmed when O’Brien invited Winston to his home which is an extremely abnormal occurrence due to the fact that friendships are frowned upon. Next, Winston and Julia appear at O’Brien’s residence only to inquire about O’Brien’s views. After being completely assured about O’Brien’s insubordination, Winston is open to someone besides Julia about his stance on Big Brother. Then, O’Brien offers Winston a manifesto of the most famous rebel of Big Brother Emmanuel Goldstein; Unfortunately, this would be Winston’s last act of defiance before he is captured and tortured into submission.
It should be pointed out that Wilde’s literary practice undergoes a chance after his writing of Dorian. Salome is the aesthetic image of her step-father, but he conspicuous moral features in her gradually make her get rid of the figure of aestheticism and turn her instead to a figure of morality. This may be ascribed to : Salome is situated in very complicated moral circumstances. She is denounced by the prophet and threatened by the incest of her step father. The prophet regards her as the daughter of incestuous mother, an immoral burden befalling her pitilessly.
While Medea is set in a male-dominated society, there are still several inconstancies and gaps, which enrich the play and make it unconventional and uncomfortable for conservative audiences. The most obvious example is the fact that Medea kills her own children, a deeply unfeminine and unmotherly act, a complete rebellion on the society. A more subtle form of non-conformity is exemplified by Medea’s inconsistency when obliging to her husband and her king. Euripides’ use of contradiction and non-conformity within the play reveal that it is a story of empowerment to women. He subtly and obviously tells this story throughout the play, specifically using Medea’s actions and her relationships with other characters as platforms to get his message across.
time, he commits several “scams, murders, atrocities / Blood-curdling rapes”. See the irony of fate for the fair sex, and satire on the rich, inherent in the following lines: “Surely Shakti from Her numerous peethas / Must have been venting Her disgust, anguish and wrath / Leaving children to the mercy of glib-tongued multi-crore patis.” This line concatenates it with the fourth line: “Glib tongued politicos”, who “buy men”, in the poem, ‘Quo Vadis . . .’, thus, making his poems well-knit, coherent and cogent. ‘Coming of Age’ teaches that years do not make one wise and mature, but mind also grows “slowly” and “Acquisition of Jnana”, which is “the goal”, comes with constant contemplation at a stage when “mundane things fade”— man stops worrying about worldly cares and concerns.
Even though religion is not the reason of wars, people around the world keep blaming it due to the propaganda made by unknown agencies. Moreover, the extremist use the name of religion, specifically Islam, to justify their actions like what had been done by IS and al-Qaeda. They claimed that they are striving the real jihad by attacking the non-Muslims. This eventually grows the fear among non-Muslims toward Muslims without knowing the truth that Islam has nothing to do with extremism and
Contrary to Maududi and Qutb’s views, Atkinson (2002) held the view that the Arabic word jihad appears in chapter 29 verse 69 of the Qur’an and the word strive has been used in its translation into English. The word jihad is a relatively short word but it has huge implications within Islamic society as a whole and especially for the daily life of the individual Muslim. Jihad. Jihad, as ordained by Islam, does not consist of killing and being killed but in striving hard to win the pleasure of Allah. Individually and collectively, jihad is essential for the advancement of the souls.
CHAPTER 1 All the fables lying Buried under dark Labyrinth of history are required now Sri Sri No other country in the world has such an enormous epic literature like India. In this country’s literature and cultural discourses these epic images and metaphors have become a part. “But now these dark corners /grey areas of history are needed” said Sri Sri a noted literary figure and famous poet in Telugu in his poem Mahaprasthanam. Not only that but he also said history is not simply why a war is fought, how many years did a kingdom survive? Dates and records are not what history means.
