Of the six advantages Swift enumerates, one might consider the sixth as the most sardonic since it is absurd for a mother to breed their own child to a heavy weight for economic gain. Also, the description of the relationship between husbands and wives improving since men would no longer beat their wives because they view them as cattle raising their profit. Moreover, Swift’s ridiculous proposition that an advantage would be the competition between parents to produce the “the fattest child to the market”. Swift uses the essay to satirize both his subject and his political proposal by using irony to resolve the issue of the Irish people’s economic struggle. His immoral proposal shocks the readers and forces them to think about the issues Ireland was facing specifically the tyranny of the upper class.
“I may climb perhaps to no great heights, but I will climb alone.” The character Cyrano can be described as many different things, from being an uncomfortable man to look at, to being a hopeless romantic. In Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac, Edmond displays Cyrano as heroic because he is superior to other characters, extremely witty, and a romantic idealist. Cyrano is extremely witty.

Additionally, Helen was in conflict with Dr. Roylott (Helen versus Dr. Roylott) as she was terrified of her death (man versus man). The conflict was external as Dr. Roylott was abusive to his stepdaughter; on the other hand, the conflict was internal as Helen feared that Dr. Roylott would kill her.

Internal Criticism The word phony is often used to describe something that is fake or ingenuine. When the word phony is used in a sentence, it can usually be classified as simple teenage slang. However, when the word phony is used in The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, it has a much deeper meaning. Oftentimes, the person who is accusing objects of being phony is the main character, Holden Caulfield.
In describing Iago, the word honest is used to highlight the contradiction between the idea of an honest man and his actions. Iago used claims of love and honesty as motivations for his actions yet his actions are motivated by other goals. Also, because all of the characters believe in Iago’s honesty, it alienates the audience in their knowledge of Iago’s true intentions and therefore magnifies the dramatic irony for the audience. The use of the word honest in addition to questioning words such as yet and maybe demonstrates how quickly Desdemona’s reputation changes with just a whisper of dishonesty. This highlights the dramatic irony because the audience knows of Desdemona’s faithfulness yet they are powerless in stopping Iago’s plan.
Gatsby will go to the extreme in order to create a fake persona like ordering gaudy shirts from other countries and articulating in a fictitious accent. Jordan is also a prime example of a character acting fake to get ahead because of the white

This caught my attention while reading, as it frustrated me. Toohey said this quote. I am tired of Toohey acting like he is better and more knowledgeable than others. He is the type of person who acts very sweet around other people, yet has a different face. I feel like he is doing this pretense to show that he is a very saintly person, who speaks only greatness.
to do that now because he has money. He can afford a beautiful wife who can bare him with more children if he pleases.

Another example is when Scrooge is talking to the Ghost of Christmas Future about his fate and how he might be able to change it.
