The hunger artist has full control over his fast, he know that he can give up whenever he wants, but he completes his aim; while the ape realizes its fate us predestined at the beginning of the story, so he decides to act like a human because he finds it to be his only way to the possible freedom in the circus. They both are kept in cages for wild animals, and while the cage of the ape's purpose is to make it obedient, the cage of the hunger artist is a part of the artwork that only highlights his feebleness. Both artists are challenged by the position society has put them in. However, the ape manages to cope with it in kind of a satisfactory way, while the hunger artist dies due to his
The first claim was, at one point the hunger artist reached his 40-day limit becoming so weak, but he had the courage to continue fasting no matter what. Second, the hunger artist turning into a type of animal in his cage shows where he went too far for attention reaching past the limits he had. Third, the hunger artist found out his talent was coming out of date, instead of quitting he reached another goal of joining the circus. Fourth, from the hunger artist getting passed at the circus proves he failed at his one true goal making him finally see the outcome from previous moments. The theme that I was mainly connecting to was the message of, do your very best to get what you desire but don’t go so far too extreme measures.
Additionally, because of the ever-growing admiration of the Hunger Artist, people began to conform to the new fad. For instance, Kafka states, “There were people who bought
We, the students are the “chained prisoners”. We are only allowed to know what the “puppeteers” allow us to know. The “puppeteers” can be seen as the teachers. Now we have to ask ourselves, what are the “shadows on the wall” that we see everyday. I believe that the “shadows” represent all of the illusions that we live by as our reality.
The image shows a famine victim outside of a feeding center. The most striking thing about this image was the irony. The main focal piece being the person in this instance who is malnourished and on the verge of dying whilst outside a feeding center. This suggests to the viewer that there isn’t enough food at the feeding centers to feed everyone and at the same time projects the image of people starving all around the world whilst we turn our noses up at food we don’t like and take this basic necessity for granted. Another view which could be obtained from the image is that there isn’t enough sharing among the people in power that have money to the rest of society.
Iago is often referred to as Shakespeare’s greatest villain, and this is completely understandable. He really is as slimy and conniving a snake as you could possibly get. He is extremely intelligent and calculating, a dangerous combination in any Hollywood villain. His malicious contempt for Othello is a sniper rifle, not a shotgun; each facet of his plans of derailment is clean and concise, no mess, no emotion. He wanders about—like a malevolent wraith—tainting the minds of those around him and warping them to his own will without them becoming aware.
Agitated and undoubtedly cunning, Iago seeks his revenge against Othello with a ferocity unmatched, using every arsenal disposable to him; deception being his greatest. One of the starter scenes with the most value is the point at which Iago deceives Cassio by pretending to be his friend, laying the groundwork of his masterful plan by inserting wisplike suggestions into Cassio’s mind to drink. Now, Cassio is a malleable, naive man, so it is relatively easy for Iago to
Hunger has haunted humankind throughout the known history of the world. It has always remained a mystery that history of hunger persists in all the societies— whether of scarcity or plenty. It is a vicious product of modern human life. For a layman hunger simply refers as an inadequacy in individual dietary intake relative to the kind and quantity of food required for growth, for activity and for the maintenance of good health. While this definition is broad enough to include voluntary forms of self-denial, but there are also other forms of hunger which embarks its presence latently in this world.
Iago uses Roderigo to inform Brabantio about the relationship his precious daughter Desdemona has with a moor Othello. Iago’s initial intention is the downfall of Othello and get the position, as a lieutenant, he wants. Throughout the play, Iago continuously manipulates Othello by showing him false proofs and telling him rumors about Desdemona and Cassio. “I know not that, but such a handkerchief - I am sure it was your wife’s - did I today/ See Cassio wipe his beard with.” (3.3 445-447) Iago falsely accuses Cassio by telling Othello that Cassio was using Desdemona’s handkerchief, the one that Othello gave to her as a first gift. In the article, Navorro (2013) says, “...the narcissist often chooses a profession, guild, organization, occupation, or a job where he or she can manipulate others or the system like a puppeteer.” Iago pretends to be under Othello, meaning he shows honesty and royalty to Othello, and when he finally gains Othello’s trust, he starts to manipulate Othello’s thoughts and beliefs.
He even stated in his work, The Vanity of Existence, that "human life must be some kind of mistake" For him, time is that by goodness of which everything moves toward becoming nothingness in our grasp and loses all genuine value.The past is not any more real and so "it exists as meager as does what has never been." The present analyzes to the past as something does to nothing. We originated from nothing after ages of time and will in the blink of an eye come back to nothing. Every snapshot of life is temporary and short lived and rapidly turns into the past—as it were, vanish into nothingness. The time of our lives is gradually depleting.
