Steinbeck uses word choice, tone, anaphora to highlight the juxtaposition between Cathy Ames and Abra Bacon to illustrate how evil and goodness change the perspective about their inherent point. For instance, Cathy Ames was one of the character who standed out in the novel, which made the audience aware of who she was and is a big comparison to other characters throughout the book. Adam told Charles that him and Cathy got married. Which makes Cathy leave to the bedroom and closing the door. Charles say negative things about Cathy “She’s no damn good, I tell you.
In the context of the play, the character Macbeth is a “hardy soldier” and consequently, may be conversant to the sight of blood; yet, arguably Duncan’s “bloody business” could have been the derivation of Macbeth’s intensifying guilt. Thus, the conclusion could be made that an allegory for blood is culpability. The playwright may premeditatedly use the question “will all great Neptune’s oceans wash this blood clean from my hand?” to emphasize Macbeth's vexation. He may be irritated by the indelible 'red stains' on his hands as it may be a figurative elicitation of the murder; prompting his guilt. In this scene, Shakespeare uses three inquisitive sentences throughout Macbeth's dialogue.
This is seen through the Brannagh’s film as the close-up of Hamlet’s furrowed face and his high pitch voice with quick inflection illustrates his anguish. This dualistic nature is seen as Claudius’ exterior is one of smooth, popular, and effective political operator, which is clearly identified in Act 1 scene 2 where Claudius is able to re-organise and deal with the problems of the state and re-introduce smoothly his marriage with Gertrude which would have been clearly seen as incest. The antithesis of words such as; ‘defeated joy ‘and ‘mirth and funeral… dirge in marriage’ exemplifies the dualistic and cunning nature of Claudius from the illusion of a good king to the reality of murderer. Polonius on the other hand appears to be something of a bumbling fool which is shown when Hamlet belittles him,’ you are a fishmonger’. The dualistic pun of a ‘fishmonger’; a pander implying that he is exploiting his daughter Ophelia in order to procure information or a person who sold fish, suggesting that he is one who
He does evil deeds, but in a human way that makes him quite conflicting. Chillingworth is a sinner that possibly committed a greater sin than that of adultery, but is overall gray in his morality. He redeems himself when his remaining wealth is given to Pearl, and his wrongdoing is realized. This novel will be analyzed using the Mythological, or Archetypal literary criticism type. Hawthorne clearly wrote the novel with some archetypes in mind, whether they be biblical or from another source.
While unique characters are very valuable in various forms of literature, authors can successfully utilize stereotyped characters to achieve author’s purpose. The character of Mariane in Tartuffe by Molière is a stereotypical “damsel in distress”, as the other characters must help her while they combat the hypocrisy of Tartuffe. When Orgon, blinded by his reverence for Tartuffe, announces that Mariane is to marry Tartuffe, it causes conflict between characters. Mariane has to express her opinion and defy her father, so that she will not marry a hypocrite and liar, despite being a generally submissive person. In Molière’s Tartuffe, the author successfully employs a conventional character through Mariane, to demonstrate the strife that fanaticism and
This bloody operation with secrets so horrible they’re willing to kill to keep hidden! The leader’s name, it must be in there somewhere.” Fitz handed Andy a refill, which was quickly consumed. “Lawrence, we’ve got to solve his riddle and call it in. I understand the reference to the books, but what’s with the letter?” Hemmingway noticed Andy was sweating profusely. “The love letter is the clever work of Goff titled From a Gentleman to a Lady.
In the given passage from the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the author compares and contrasts two sets of characters, Tom and Daisy with Gatsby, to surface the differences that had been drawn between them due to their attitudes and moral values. Through the usage of dialogues, focus on the moral values of each set and Nick Carraway’s description of the characters the author conveys this idea to the readers. One reason behind the significance of this passage is the fact that through the usage of dialogues and Nick Carraway’s descriptions the author adds a dimension to the ‘careless’ characters in the novel, Tom and Daisy. Throughout the novel Tom has proven to be a selfish and hypocritical man who would do anything to save
Witches philosophy on life affects the play greatly. “Fair is foul, and foul is fair.” is spoken in unison by the witches and describes the way the play can be interpreted. Macbeth’s downfall can be thought of as foul but also fair because justice had been served. Sanity can be a two-sided argument with Macbeth. The focused role of Macbeth expresses thoughts to himself throughout and can be portrayed as a loss of sanity.
Where foul itself was used in the play itself to represent the wickedness and treachery. This play demonstrates that desire can be strong that people become overwhelmed with their own desires. What Shakespeare was trying to say in the play Macbeth that desire was the root of all greed and foulness. Shakespeare then demonstrates the power of greed and desire which is inspired by the witches chant to Macbeth. The chant drives Macbeth and Lady Macbeth to look past the consequences greed and to push towards what they believe is “fair” for
Likewise, the addition of the phrase, “Don’t you see?” adds a touch of irony since it plays off the notion that the man knows best and that his view is the correct one; in this case, Carol is the one indoctrinating her opinion to John and is being highly critical of his lack of understanding towards her view. Correspondingly, A Doll’s House captures how impactful abusive language can be. Henrik Ibsen assigning Nora negative emotive language at the end of the play correlates to why she was able to adequately gain power over Torvald. Her assertive statement, “...for eight years I had been living here with a strange man, and had borne him three children,” serves to criticize Torvald’s treatment towards her. Through the use of this language, Nora is able to insult Torvald in such a way that
Rhetoric is a tool students use to learn and analyse the reading more in depth. Rhetoric has many different sections to successfully use rhetoric, for an example there is the rhetorical triangle, the appeals, content and the intention.
