In the same way he is an incomplete politician also. We cannot justify him as a complete human being rather he can be stated as a helpless king who has declined for his stubborn nature. He is neither a hero nor a villain rather he is a victim of his self-indulgence. (Bloom. 249-150) In Shakespeare 's view, Richard is a failure as a king not because he is immoral, nor because he is too sensitive and refined for the job, but because he misunderstands the nature of kingship.
The lord was so boastful and self centered that he couldn't stand ugly things, even if they were pretty before, so he demoted people and hide possessions that were no longer magnificent. The beautiful, magnificent drake the lord had captured became dull and “ he refused to to release the drake, ordering that the cage be put out of sight so he would be no longer be annoyed by the birds sad appearance”. (10). His overwhelming desire for more beautiful items rule by his decisions in the empire. The lord's greed brought loneliness, anger, and the thought he has the power to rule over
A hero should always do well for his followers; Richard only proved to be loyal to himself. He abused his people by saying he was “enforced to farm our royal realm, the revenue whereof shall furnish us” (1.4.45-46). King Richard taxed the poor to fund his luxuries and wars, without thinking of how it affected his people. He thought like a man instead of a king and this lead him to not only losing his title, but his credibility. Instead of becoming a tragic hero, he became a tragic fool; not only did he abdicate his throne, because he could not handle the pressure, he showed that was not fit to be a king, even if he was born for it.
People pay to see him, to pluck his feathers, to get reliquaries. His existence is threatened by human need.” This shows the angel who could not speak so they kept him locked away and was punished for no reason. In conclusion “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, reflects on human’s nature and how sometimes it could be selfish. It is a fact that man’s greatest goal is his own happiness; therefore he can sometimes be insensitive to others. The Angel couldn’t do what everyone expected him to do so he was treated unfairly but no one cared about his feelings.
Caesars fatal death by his strong governing peers may have been because Caesar’s hamartia is his arrogance, and this is shown consistently through his life span in the play. Since Caesar has a strong political following and position in Rome’s state, he has much arrogance in his personality and this arrogance is his hamartia which has a fatal ending to his life. If Caesar was more cautious about how he treated other people with little respect then maybe his arrogance would not have been hamartia. When the soothsayer warned Caesar about the Ides of March, if Caesar was not ignorant and arrogant then he would’ve believed the soothsayer which could of saved his life. With Caesar being so arrogant he believed that nothing bad would have ever happen to him, but if he noticed but the signs of what was to come in the Ides of March and how suspicious Cassius, Brutus, and the other congressmen were then he may of not come to a fatal death.
The inscription on the statue is ironic as "nothing besides remains." Shelly writes the poem about a cold king who believes he is superior to everyone else. He is arrogant and feels like this much power is just a right. Ozymandias is abusing his power and eventually, this is his
The creature’s understanding of justice and it’s revenge against Victor is the driving force of the story because it builds up the anticipation the reader has for the final confrontation. The creature’s mental knowledge is very small-minded and intolerant, causing his understanding of justice to be exceedingly narrow. The monster’s isolation from society is forced by its fate. Nobody could with handle the hideous looks given by the creature 's appearance, this made it nearly impossible for the creature to have any interaction with any sort of human. To illustrate, the creation said while reciting his tale to Victor “And what was I?

One example is the rejection of Bernard.Since the introduction of the character in the story is clear to see he does not feet in the society standards.Only because he is unique, Bernard is judged by most of the people for being a weirdo . "At less than seventy eyeless monsters.(... )concluded Mr. Foster. (Brave New World, 1, 12)The use of the word "monsters" in this quote, makes it evident that those who think differently are abnormal.Eyeless implies the idea that the individuals who can not see the bigger picture and do not understand or either accept the government's ideals are “(..) no use at all,” and discarded like garbage (Brave New World, 1, 12).Once again, the totalitarian regime practiced in the novel, deprives the people of humanity by comparing them as garbage, considering them useless.However looking through a psychological lense, when Aldous Huxley was sixteen years old, he was diagnosed with keratitis punctata disease which left him blind. Even after doing a surgery to fix the issue, Huxley did regain some of his sights, but he remains partially blind for the rest of his life and read with great difficulty.Because he was different than others, he might have suffered some judgment towards his disease and career.Bernard's rejection and the judgment of
As a social climber, M. Jourdain 's imitations are absurd to anyone but himself. The political lesson implied in La Fontaine 's fable "The Stomach and its Members" is that sometimes the one holding power may be the only one tending to the demands of the society, as the other members may be too busy fulfilling their own, individual needs. However, he also praises the King by indicating that his presence is necessary for the country to operate in a proper way. Despite the differences between the two writers, the main purpose of their works was to praise the Sun King and his absolute monarchy. Failure to do so, often resulted in harsh punishments, such as being sent to jail.
