Butterscotch, on the other hand, constantly fought with Beatrice as well as espoused offensive views in order to reject responsibility over personal failures. Bojack turned to revel at Secretariat, who later admits to having come from a bad home and also commits suicide during Bojack’s formative years.

Just as Prospero wishes revenge onto those who betrayed he and his daughter, Caliban wishes revenge upon his master by violating his daughter. However, this singular act of foolishness is outnumbered by Caliban’s intelligence. Caliban states, “You taught me language, and my profit on’t is, I know how to curse” (Shakespeare I, ii, 363-364). At times throughout the play, Caliban speaks in poetry, a sophisticated way of talk that is associated with individuals with more importance. Caliban’s ability to learn and retain a language, and speak in a knowledgeable manner contradict the conclusions that are often made claiming Caliban as a mindless
The following passage is significant to the play ‘Othello’ in retrospect to the plot progression, as it reiterates themes and introduces important facets to the plot development. Through Iago’s cunning manipulation and Shakespeare’s crafting of language, this passage is constructed as a pivotal point of the play, marking the transition of Othello’s personality and revealing his deepest insecurities that eventually lead to his downfall and tragic ending. Iago wields a lot of power over all the characters throughout the play, but in this passage in particular he is presented at his most powerful. The passage is riddled with subtle suggestions and insinuations by Iago to raise Othello’s suspicions of his wife’s fidelity, opening with the admonition to “beware, my lord, of jealousy! / It is the green-eyed monster, which doth mock / The meat it feeds on.” This metaphor not only is a symbol representing Othello’s dark feelings of inadequacy – pointing out Othello’s hamartia, which is root of his tragedy, but it also highlights the central theme of this play: Jealousy and the terrible consequences it holds on those who
Shakespeare and Golding have both created villains that add tension to their stories. Tybalt appears throughout the play to only act villainous to protect his families, “solemnity.” At different times in the play we can truly see Tybalt’s explosiveness which sometimes has devastating consequences. Modern audiences would take this as villainy whereas Elizabethan audiences might’ve understood it as courage rather than evil. On the other hand, Roger appears to be an extended metaphor, depicting the evil Golding believed festooned in all humans. Golding creates Roger as psychotic a character the audience truly dislike.
William Shakespeare’s The Tempest and Measure for Measure are very similar in that they both raise controversial questions, mostly focusing on the theme of power. Shakespeare displays many forms of power in different ways through Prospero in The Tempest and through the Duke in Measure for Measure. These forms of power include the power of love, the desire for power amongst men, the power of an authority over his subjects, and the power of magic(Prospero) and of manipulation(the Duke). The purpose of this paper is to address the problematic relationship between power and the intention of the major characters to teach others a lesson, albeit with different tactics. Measure for Measure, mainly through the characters Angelo and the Duke, addresses
He uses social norms and expectations to set the atmosphere of the overall play, yet he utilizes different character to further set up the conflict. While he coats his conflict with paradoxical ideas to create contrasts and it foreshadows the conflict that takes place behind the scene. And lastly, Shakespeare explores conflict in many different elements, such as setting up the prologue and the context. However, his purposes for doing that so is that to bring the continuity of 2 different ideas and to collide them for the sole purpose of creating tension. Additionally, all of this was done to amplify the conflict and to delineate the conflict in the
In the play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream written by William Shakespeare, Oberon is the root of all the problems, and causes mischief.

Shakespeare further portrays men to be the instigators of betrayal, as Hamlet forgets that he ever loved Ophelia. Through, being overcome with intense hatred and anger at his mother, Hamlet denies ever having loved Ophelia, and orders her “to a nunnery”. It is Hamlet who instigates such betrayal, as he previously says “My fair Ophelia- Nymph” through “Nymph” Hamlet is describing Ophelia as a beautiful maid, thus highlighting his love for her. Yet, his attitude thereafter is considerably callous, as he continually questions Ophelia on her “honesty”. The continual questioning reflects that of a grueling and in part contributes to Ophelia’s later madness.
