Hawthorne utilizes dismal diction, invoking a melancholy tone. Such dreary diction stirs up emotion of desolation and misery as Hawthorne’s word choice connects and reminds his audience of dark thoughts. By opening his novel with such a grim subject, Hawthorne creates a contemptuous tone as he indirectly scorns the austere Puritans for their unforgiving and harsh manners. With the demonstrated disdain, Hawthorne criticizes puritan society and prepares his audience for further
David has dealt with a lot of loss throughout his life among the many sins and ungodly acts he commented as king. Throughout it all, he continues to praise God because he sees the value of it from his earthly life to his heavenly life. The message we can take out of this is that when times get hard God will always be there. We may not think he is there but he is always there like a mother and a father. Knut M. Heim a professor of old testament at Denver seminary writes “ This psalm gives us hope for the here and now, hope for life before death, in whatever dark night of the soul or body we may experience (63)”.
Thus, he said; “Frailty, thy name is woman.” And after that the revelation of his father’s ghost made him mentally unnerved and disturbed him extremely, “He is shaken with terrible disillusionment, he is on the verge of dark dungeon beyond which loom of ominous shadows of utter despair and disbelief in the good of mankind(Umrani;______;41).” Nothing in the world interests him, neither man nor woman. He feels disloyalty and treachery in everyone except Horatio. Other reason is that, “He assumes madness as a means of concealing his actual disturbance of mind. His over-excitability may betray him, but if it be a received opinion that his mind is unhinged, such as excess of over-excitement will pass unobserved and unstudied (Dowden; 1899; 24).” Hamlet was a keen observer of other characters and he had a sharp sense of judging others thus, to fool other by his ‘antic disposition’ he progressed towards his goal and the way he behaved and talked with others would be taken as due to his madness. Thus, he felt
“He is a sinner, a sinner not only against the moral fashion of the time, but of his own vision of decent conduct.” (144). This quote means that John Proctors reputation is being a sinner and has no respect for his conduct. John Proctor in the eyes of the towns people is a sinner and now he has to try and prove to them that he is a good person. “If you’ll notice, sir-they’ve known the women many years and never
The Grand Inquisitor, as described by Ivan, puts himself in a very pessimistic attitude toward human nature, he states humans are in essence weak and they need to be controlled through miracle mystery and authority. On this thematic I chose the following quote, “That day must come when men will understand that freedom and daily bread enough to satisfy all are unthinkable and can never be had together, as men will never be able to fairly divide the two among themselves. And they will also learn that they can never be free, for they are weak, vicious, miserable nonentities born wicked and rebellious.” (Dostoyevsky, 37). Because according to how the Grand Inquisitor’s vision of the world, even after meeting Jesus, having the blood and flesh of
Talc looked at Brazilianite with disgust, "You are not the son I raised, I don 't even recognize you, I know what you have done and I am _ashamed,_ You are a murderer. When i said there are no such thing as bad gems I must 've lied, because you are a bad gem. There 's nothing good about you." And that was the final straw, Brazilianite broke. He stopped his screaming and ugly sobbing and just curled up even tighter, crying to himself.
According to Hawthorne, the consequence of sin is mental deterioration as represented by Reverend Dimmesdale. Dimmesdale is a priest that has committed a vile crime, although only a scanty amount of people know about it. Dimmesdale has not publically announced his sin, which in turn worsens his mental health due to guilt. Dimmesdale stood in front of the town when his past lover, Hester, was being publically humiliated and never uttered a word, only placed “his hand upon his heart” (59). The consequence of not admitting his immoral sin was ultimate guilt.
This limits women to find the confidence to stand up for their beliefs. As Claudio falsely degrades Hero’s character, Hero accepts these accusations voluntarily and remains silent about the issue. Claudio stands up in public and proceeds to call Hero slanderous names such as, “thou pure impiety and impious purity” (IV.i.109). Hero again does not object, though she falls due to complete shock. Once her father hears these accusations, he commands to “let her die” as a result of the crimes she committed (IV.i.163).
But instead, men decided to feed into the stupidity of women and join them on their rise to equality, otherwise known as the feminist movement. Nietzsche not only had no respect for women and their attempt for equality; but he also had no respect for men supporting women and their feminist movement. This movement is one of the worst
No one is paid to be born or to die which means our value is priceless and precious. How could we possibly try to calculate life’s worth? In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, the very well-known speech of To Be Or Not to Be discusses Hamlet’s strong point of view on life. He basically hates life because from his experiences all it brings is pain and suffering. Victimizing himself he says life is all just one big “calamity” and “heartache” and there is no use in trying to make it last because in the end we are going to die anyways.
To have my new made bride so suddenly torn from my grasp is unbearable. The friar just mumbles on about his philosophy and no one, NO ONE, understands my sorrow. BODY Wretched Tybalt and his impassive nature. For if thou had simply sat content and not struck Mercutio down I would not of avenged his death, not been banished and not been separated from my dearest Juliet. Nothing can replace this horrible, twisting feeling.
