Pg 27-29). Even tough we see him arguing with himself and feeling disgusted, showing that he is very much humane, and his only fault being way too ambitious. That was interesting because we get the feeling that something out of the ordinary is coming up and our anticipation gets into the story straightaway. At the very end, in the beginning of Macbeth’s downfall we didn 't expect that a murderer like him would, even in defeat, display conscience and bravery. "I will not yield to kiss the ground before young Malcolm 's feet,...
The reader can imagine her as constantly-shifting in appearance, which adds to the horror of her looks. Both Arthur and Guinevere attempt to convince Ragnelle to hold the wedding privately to preserve both Gawain and Ragnelle’s honor, as other courtiers will no doubt ridicule them for the odd couple they make. Arthur’s knights are meant to be the best in England, with the most beautiful, noble wives. Certainly, Ragnelle is not the bride Gawain would have picked, given a real
Deception is one of mankind’s most versatile and powerful tools and is used nearly every day for both evil and good. Whether it be deceiving an army in battle or using exaggerations and myths to teach a child right from wrong, deceit allows one to advance his selfish or selfless intentions by providing him a source of influence on others. Such deception—the host’s wife’s dishonesty in particular—is evident throughout Sir Gawain and the Green Knight as it helps to spur the plot of the poem. Lady Bertilak’s purposeful deception of Gawain has questionable motives that highlight the theme of human imperfection and susceptibility to temptation. Temptation, developed through deception, is a useful tool for challenging and evaluating one’s integrity.
Othello is presented as a respectful and honorable prince loved by all, but unexpectedly he grows an enemy, Iago. Iago vows to get vengeance on Othello because Othello made Cassio his lieutenant instead of Iago. Iago then takes control of fate in the play as he diabolically invents a plan to manipulate Othello into believing that Desdeomona was having an affair with Cassio. Furthermore, Othello’s tragic flaw was that he was gullible, therefore eventhough Othello was infatuated with Desdemona he chose to believe in Iago’s lies about Desdemona’s “affair”. For example, throughout the entire play, Othello committed irrational actions voluntarily because he was overtaken by jealousy that Iago developed with lies.
Truth Comes From Doubt Doubt may be irrational, but it can also reveal the truth. Throughout John Patrick Shanley’s play Doubt, Sister Aloysius tries to expose the truth about how Father Flynn could be having an inappropriate relationship with Donald Muller. Sister Aloysius becomes aware of this possibly inappropriate relationship after Sister James tells her that Father Flynn had a private meeting with Donald. Then, Sister Aloysius talks to many people to see if her speculations are true, and by doing that, she hopes that the truth will cause Father Flynn to leave St. Nicholas. After reading the play Doubt, I believe that Father Flynn is guilt of having an inappropriate relationship with Donald Muller because of Father Flynn’s behaviors and Sister Aloysius’ conversations with many people.
Also Beatrice is a unique woman because she seek to revolutionize the way that she is treated in the play. At the pinnacle of the story Claudio is striking (public shaming) Hero about various lies about her such as infidelity, violating chastity, and public shame. It is worthy to note that this is important in womanhood due to Hero's depressed behavior in the play.
On the other hand, Hamlet accuses Ophelia of faithlessness, of whoring. He tells her to get her to a nunnery, a statement that implies that she is no better than a whore. This can be justified in Act 3, Scene 1 “Get thee to a nunnery. Why wouldst thou be a breeder of sinners? I am myself indifferent honest, but yet I could accuse
He gives an incite of the perception of males when it comes to having relations with women. He stated that Hamlet didn’t genuinely love Ophelia and it was simply a lie to make her feel special. In a way he lowered Ophelia’s confidence by suggesting that he would not choose her over a prettier woman. He then argues with Ophelia and tells her that all Hamlet wanted to do was get in her pants because she was easy and gullible to him. Another situation that shows significance to this paper is how the household is being run.
She is only focused on completing her goal of murdering King Duncan so her husband can usurp the throne. She realizes that her husband’s personality is rather meek, and that he would not go through with murdering King Duncan because of a quality that he has, his humanity, which she considers his greatest weakness. Deliberating with herself, she thinks of Macbeth and his potential in regard to what could come to pass: “Yet do I fear thy nature, / It is too full o’ th’ milk of human kindness / To catch the nearest way” (Shakespeare l.v.16-18).
In the end, I believe that Hamlet virtuous intentions totally reflect faultily in many circumstances that led to his tragic flaw. He was thinking the greatest outcomes possible so that he won’t take any wrong steps that can kill a naïve person and his values. Hamlets Flaw is his good traits but certainly these traits didn’t help him a lot when he was dealing with those harsh environment and circumstances. Hamlets were very close to his father and mother but after the discovery that his own mother betrayed his father loves he completely got outraged and he started to think of his mother as selfish and trustworthy women. He started to believe that all women are identical and he feared that his love Ophelia might also betray him.
A paradox is a statement or proposition that is contradictory and seems illogical, but when explained is true. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is filled with rich paradox’s which seem irrational to a first time reader, however when given a closer look into the meaning of text, they realize the symbolism in which this poem possesses. The whole poem is a contradiction within itself, but in order to see it in such a way the reader must first analyze the smaller pieces of contradictions throughout the text. Thus, the poem, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight teaches a life lesson through paradoxical rhetoric.

In Rabbi Joseph Telushkin’s book titled A Code of Jewish Ethics: Volume 1: You Shall Be Holy, he writes about the Jewish laws surrounding the idea of deceiving others and lying to prevent future harm. Lying: Moral Choice in Public and Private Life by Sissela Bok explains how political lies are not trivial because they affect many people.
The word deceit means to take action or practice deceiving someone by concealing or misrepresenting the truth. In the novel Much Ado About Nothing, a theme of deceit is constantly present, and appears in many different forms. Deceit is used not only for wicked purposes, but mainly for good intentions. In Shakespeare's novel deception is used to initiate and continue the play's plot, by using the masking of characters, faking death and various other forms of deception to demonstrate how true deception can be in our lives. Deception can often be used to mask a certain identity for a particular reason.
Compassion/Deception vs. People “A lighted candle of compassion can easily illuminate the world more than the blinding light of anger, intolerance and violence combined” ~ Dodinsky.
