This is heartbreaking because he was friendly to Othello and welcoming him into his home until he finds out he was sleeping with his daughter. He saw their relationship as unnatural for having different ethnicities. “When Brabantio himself comes to court in an effort to reclaim his runaway daughter, he accuses Othello of having ensnared Desdemona "in chains of magic" (1.2.63) rather than having genuinely won her heart” (Pettigrew). In this quote, Brabantio is telling the duke his claims of Othello bewitching his daughter and using magic to win her love instead of her genuinely falling in love with him. Not only is Brabantio racist but he’s also a misogynist.

In the last lines of the poem, Penelope states that “only my weaving is real,” which is a symbol of her losing her touch with reality and going crazy because she now does not know what is real as the only part of her life she knows is real. The overarching theme of the poem, would be if one is isolated from loved ones or society, they would begin to feel themselves going insane or close to insanity. Linda Pastan wrote the poem titled “Penelope and Odysseus” in which Penelope is describing how she feels about her husband leaving her for war. In the first section of the poem, penelope describes odysseus, “returning home each evening tentative, a little angry.” The reason penelope is describing Odysseus in this negative fashion, is because of the uncertainty odysseus is experiencing. In the next line of the poem, Penelope states, “And I who thought to be one of the sirens (cast up on strewn sheets at dawn.
Macbeth is a play about subterfuge and trickery. Macbeth, his wife, and the three Weird Sisters are linked in their mutual refusal to come right out and say things directly. Instead, they rely on implications, riddles, and ambiguity to evade the truth. Macbeth’s ability to manipulate his language and his public image in order to hide his foul crimes makes him a very modern-seeming politician. However, his inability to see past the witches’ equivocations—even as he utilizes the practice himself—ultimately leads to his downfall.

The theme of The Viy is also recognized in a following quote where Gogol exhibits prose giving a flow of actions and portrayal as the witch comes after Thomas, he gives the reader a sense of
When she came back with her siblings, she witnessed that his home had been raided and that there was a notice on the wall, stating that he was captured for treason, because he was seen with a human. Lucy knew that it was because of her that Mr. Tumnus was in danger and made it a point to stand by what she had caused and fix it. She refused to let someone suffer because of her. When Susan said they will not be of any help because they are humans, Lucy was quick to admit that she was the problem, saying, “You don’t get it, do you? I’m the human”.
She plans on killing her children because she believes that she is rescuing them from a hand more hostile to murder them. Although this may convince some readers that she does have a heart with a sense of protecting her children, there is also a darker reason for this sinful act. In one particular scene, the Corinthian women begged her not to do this, but Medea replied with, “this will cause my husband to feel the most pain.” Reading this piece, readers will surely realize that having Jason suffer in anguish was her way of regaining peace, viewing her as the antagonist of this play. It 's strange though how she feels motherly love towards the children like any other parent today, even though the nurse from the beginning of the story said she hated her children. So it seems that good and evil are not just black and white, it 's just the decisions people make between morals and
It should be pointed out that Wilde’s literary practice undergoes a chance after his writing of Dorian. Salome is the aesthetic image of her step-father, but he conspicuous moral features in her gradually make her get rid of the figure of aestheticism and turn her instead to a figure of morality. This may be ascribed to : Salome is situated in very complicated moral circumstances. She is denounced by the prophet and threatened by the incest of her step father. The prophet regards her as the daughter of incestuous mother, an immoral burden befalling her pitilessly.
