In deduction, Mark Zusak effectively uses the power of words to demonstrate how crucial it was to the survival and growth of major characters, he also expresses this through numerous perspectives. Liesel represents the power of words and its ability to deceive and persuade; however, Rudy is affected negatively the most through the power of words, these representations of how words can be powerful are merely exercised through emotional measures rather than through expression of thought, which certainly affects the outcome of the story. The literary devices in the novel have allowed the author to depict an image of how the power of words is displayed. Besides this, the application of this analysis could be more intensive that just this instance, which is why it is critical to understand the power of analyzing the effect that words can have, they can revamp and change views to represent a completely different perspective. The Book Thief is a buoyant novel that educates and guides youth to be more cautious about the effect of words on altering your
Correspondingly, Edmund turns out to be unfaithful, while the loyal Edgar becomes poor Tom O’Bedlam. Regretfully, Gloucester laments his former judgements: “I have no way and therefore want no eyes. / I stumbled when I saw” (4.1.19-20). Gloucester’s lack of foresight and remorse is equivalently shared with Lear.
The speaker offers a more in-depth view of their personal experience with hunting the woodchucks. The speaker begins to find joy and satisfaction in the murdering of pests, as demonstrated by the phrase, “thrilling to the feel of the .22”. The speaker admits that he/she is a “lapsed pacifist fallen from grace puffed with Darwinian pieties for killing”. This phrase shows that the speaker acknowledges their evolution towards evil. “Darwinian” can symbolize that the author is beginning to feel a primal “survival of the fittest” mindset while killing; it could also be a hint to the WWII metaphor because the Nazi’s used Darwinian ideas to justify the killings they committed.
Being driven to take on his horrible actions the reader can see that General Zaroff loves the rush of how he does things. The look of General Zaroff may have a tendency to appear to a person as bizarre. General Zaroff’s appearances draw mostly to his bloody looking lips that help hide his piercing teeth in his mouth. Seeing the traits of General Zaroff appear to be quite ironic to the reader being that he is trying to resemble a killing beast. With the story continuing, the reader can assure that the traits of General Zaroff are correct for his purposes of sick pleasure.
The comparison to a plant that was close to ripening, shows that Wolsey believes that he was on his way to greatness. The second part, where Wolsey compares the court’s actions to nipping the root, shows that he is upset at the dismissal and believes the world is against him. By using figurative language, Shakespeare is able to peer into Wolsey’s mind to gain a perspective on how he views himself. The excerpt takes on a spiteful, almost morose tone. Wolsey seems hopeless, referring to himself as old and weary, giving the reader a vision of a broken man.
The tortures of hell are too mild a vengeance for thy crimes” (93). He is fully aware he the root of all problems, yet he believes the Creature to be censurable and denying to give it a chance of salvation when he breaks his promise and destroys the female creature he was working on; his actions result in his father and Elizabeth’s deaths. This also makes the
In particular, Shakespeare displays how Hamlet’s identity is shaped: during his mourning phase, as he relies on his closest allies, and when he faces Laertes at the end of the play. Hamlet faces a torrent of emotions when his father dies. He feels despondent and as though his life is worth nothing. Thus, adversity shapes his identity – bringing out his deepest, darkest qualities. In the beginning of the play Hamlet wishes that his “too sullied flesh would melt”, and this is an indication of his desperation and dissatisfaction with life.
In the play King Lear, William Shakespeare depicts the main character Cordelia as a tragic hero in this story/play. King Lear is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare. It depicts the gradual descent into madness of the title character, after he disposes of his kingdom giving bequests to two of his three daughters based on their flattery of him, bringing tragic consequences for all.King Lear is a tragic hero.

Shakespeare uses this passage to reveal to us how Othello truly deals with problems and how he thinks. He shows us that Othello is far too naive and trusts what he is told. Othello also makes mistakes when he is confronted with moments of extreme distress and in this situation he has chosen both murder and suicide. Shakespeare also uses his monologue to develop and strengthen the idea that language can kill just as Iago has used it to kill Desdemona.
He does not return to her doorstep and present it like a holy grail, his proclamation of love sending her into a delicate swoon. As much as the boy and the reader might hope for such a romantic outcome, the reality is far more pedestrian. The boy arrives at Araby as it is already beginning to close, and is so overwhelmed and intimidated by its silent, unfriendly atmosphere that he leaves empty-handed, shop lights flickering out around him (Joyce, p. 383). The final line is sobering: “Gazing up into the darkness I saw myself as a creature driven and derided by vanity; and my eyes burned with anguish and anger (Joyce, p. 383).” In his lofty imaginings the boy has imagined himself not as who he is, but as who he wishes to be - a figure out of a fairy tale, “[bearing his] chalice safely through a throng of foes (Joyce, p. 380).” In these last few lines, the protagonist discovers something uglier, but far more grounded in reality. He sees his quest borne from infatuation as nothing but a childish vanity.
The only place he can feel accepted is in Shakespeare’s world, a place where he’s filled with energy and foolish idealism. John is the definition of a true loner. In A Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, John turns from a man with an understanding of his world, to someone so lost and confused they commit suicide.
Revenge, the common instinctual sense of self-justice exists in us all. Its manifestations may be observed through primitive, physical violence, skulking, character-assassination, or perhaps by simply taking it to authorities for them to dish out cold justice. Our need for vengeance unites us, while our actions with it divide us. The unknown author of Beowulf, however, was able to add another use to revenge. The author drove the plot through cause and effect, showed how alike characters are through their actions, yet distant through their motivations.
This supports the idea of Icarus life being unsatisfying and in a bigger that everyday life is boring and humdrum. Field uses imagery to generate a dull and dark contemporary image, he does that in the poem when he says “Only the feathers floating around the hat” (1), “Never dreaming that the gray, respectable suit” (11) and, “And nightly Icarus probes his wound” (21), Field’s use of weary imagery creates a world that is jaded and where one would not want to experience, yet, Icarus is caught in its grasp of failure and becomes obsessive of it. Field excellently demonstrates the aftermath of losing one’s beauty, and youthful spirit, he does this using poetic
