Because Cassio is distraught from the sequences that occurred earlier, he confides to Iago for advice. After recommending him to talk to Desdemona and Cassio leaving, he finally figures out his plan to destroy Othello. He first starts off with realizing his irony of helping Cassio while trying to be evil at the same time. It has been so easy for Iago to mold the other characters into his plan that it is hilarious to him. At this point, it is questioning to the audience of the continuation of his plot.
His attitude in this chapter is comparable to how he feels after committing the crime. At this time in his life, rather than being a self-motivated guilt like he had after he committed the murders, it was a guilt pressured on to him by Sonia. She gave him something to look forward to whenever his sentence was completed. Although it may not be genuine, he realizes the torture he had put Sonia through, saying “he recalled how he had constantly caused her pain” (527). This reveals that he has a sense of remorse for at least some of his actions, particularly the pain he caused Sonia.
However great the effect of Mark’s death was on Hitchens, it cannot compare to the effect on Mark’s parents. Hitchens uses imagery again when attempting to illustrate the parents feelings, writing that they live in “a world that alternates very sharply and steeply between grief and pride” (2). Hitchens creates an image of another world, as if to say that in this world, one could never understand how the Dailys must feel. The world he describes is marked by opposite extremes, the image is just a window into which the audience could possibly see how the death of Mark effected his family, amplifying how one’s death effects those closest to him or
As a result, readers can sympathize with Villaseñor for his misfortunes. Villaseñor effectively uses hyperbole to emotionally connect the readers with him by creating a sort of underdog characteristic where many would root for Villaseñor. Who would not want to root for an underdog? Hyperbole also conveys his hatred in an amplified manner. The use of exclamatory statements in conjunction with descriptive connotations of teachers only adds to anger that
This certain type of appeal generates emotions that the author hopes to trigger to persuade the readers into their issue. Emotional appeal creates a bond between the reader and the author and even to the overall message. By bringing up racial tensions Zora sparks some feelings in the audience. Zora describes her feelings well in her writing that it makes the readers actually feel pity for her. She says “How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company?
However, 8.5 would actually be beneficial to the audience’s understanding of the theme of how one’s greed can lead to their downfall due to the repetition of the theme portrayed in Malcolm’s downfall. Having two examples of the theme establishes the idea of how disastrous greed can be. The revelation of Lady Macbeth’s infidelity (126.96.36.199-30) furthered this idea as it indicated how Macbeth had lost his status and loyalty due to his savage lust for power. By incorporating Act 5 Scene 8.5 into Macbeth, significant details contributing to character development and the plot would be included, strengthening the play’s overall theme. Macbeth’s storyline would be furthered through the fulfillment of Banquo's prophecy, and the addition of this act continues seamlessly as it remains consistent with the original theme.
McEwan mainly focuses on how the negative emotions can affect moral judgement. In the case of Briony jealousy causes her to want to hurt Robbie. Rejection and replacement cause Briony’s jealousy as her love, Robbie, chose to be with her sister rather than with her. The lingering effect of jealousy can be attributed to the leading cause of her immoral judgement. By giving this character a hamartia such as this McEwan made it possible for the readers to eventually feel empathetic towards Briony, as many would have felt jealousy due to an unrequited
Hester Prynne is one character who makes a mistake that leads her to experience the hate and embarrassment that comes with it. Along with the severe consequences, Hester is able to find the good that comes from her transgression. Arthur Dimmesdale deals with the guilt from his sin in a different way and ends up in a very different situation than Hester. In The Scarlet Letter, Hawthorne uses Pearl, Hester 's daughter, to symbolize how the effects of guilt and sin have a dual nature. Pearl demonstrates how the effects of sin have a positive outcome on Hester.
Othello, after killing Desdemona, even comes to a realization of his actions when he says, “Then must you speak. Of one that loved not wisely, but too well; Of one not easily jealous, but being wrought, Perplexed in the extreme” (5.2.402-405). Othello is becoming aware of his irrational acceptance, and has begun to know that is was his emotions of jealousy are what corrupted his love. He has realized this at a moment when his actions had already been followed through. Once he had competed his actions and there was an absence of jealousy and anger, he had become fully aware of what he had done.
In this situation, curiosity was her vice and eventually caused evil to fly upon all of mankind ─ this was surely the downside to her curiosity. The text says, “And the evil spirits flew off to attack the rest of mankind.” This demonstrates the hardship that Pandora and the rest of the world went through due to her curiosity. Nonetheless, some positivity was shown at the end of this dark time. The text says at the end of “Pandora 's Box,” “She was no longer downhearted as hope spread its wings and flew into the world.”
Nhat Hahn interview with Oprah was when he says, “anger is energy used to act, acts of wrong things, compassion is better” (Oprah Interview). How you response to an event can persuade the outcome of the entire situation. If you go into the discussion with anger, there will most likely be a negative outcome. However, attending a discussion with an open and more positive matter can result in a more understanding and equally happy
The chapter “Cultivating Gratitude and Joy: Letting Go Of Scarcity And Fear Of The Dark” in the book The Gifts of Imperfection by Dr. Brené Brown, pushes readers to let go of fear and scarcity. The author encourages oneself in order to experience joy and gratitude they must first let go of the fear and scarcity that is keeping them from reaching joy and gratitude. She quotes, “Every time I came too close to softening into sheer joyfulness about my children and how much I love them, I’d picture something terrible happening; I’d picture losing everything in a flash.” Although we cannot help, but think about the worst thing that can happen. It will begin to get in the way and distract us from what truly brings oneself joy and gratitude.
The patient identifies the most specific image related to the memory and whatever negative feelings of self-worth which are tied to this event.

The intensity of the negative emotions should diminish during this treatment and a positive emotion will root the patient.
Intro Authors Laurence Behrens and Leonard J. Rosen quote psychologist Nicholas DiFonzo, in “Have You Heard This? The Latest on Rumor,” as asking, “What is it about being human that sets the stage for rumor activity?” (478). Rumors and gossip are usually designed to hurt others. Since rumors hurt or destroy other people’s lives and take away their happiness, then why do people like to spread them? Some of the people who spread rumors often feel better about themselves, and they enjoy seeing others suffer.
Perestroika is a term used to describe reformation when you are changing and improving for the greater good. This is perhaps why Kushner chose to name the second act of his play Perestroika, because the characters embody the meaning of the word in their transformations. Throughout the play it is evident that Harper is absolutely miserable and like many others, turns to her addiction in order to mask the feelings of pain and resentment of her unhappy marriage. Her story does have a happy ending in which she expressed the journey through her affliction in her final scene, “In this world, there is a kind of painful progress. Longing for what we’ve left behind, and dreaming ahead (Kushner 285).”
