Considering the society in Fahrenheit 451 is centered about conformation, Beatty is violently averse to the thought of having conflicting vantage points. Beatty even explains to Montag, a fireman with growing inquiry, about “what traitors books can be” in attempts to deter him from reading. By traitors, Beatty means to express his coming away lost due to authors “all of them running about, putting out the stars and extinguishing the sun.” He argues that rather than challenging people with discovering truth themselves, it is in their best interest to not “give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.” Rather, “Any man who can take a TV wall apart and put it back together again, and most men can nowadays, is happier than any man who tries to slide rule,
How may I live without my name? I have given you my soul; leave me my name!”(1272). These words by John Proctor exemplify his character by making, in my opinion, not a very wise decision. In the play The Crucible, John Proctor’s unwillingness can be seen as selfish because others hung before he confessed his affair with Abigail but he redeemed himself by undoing his confession and refusing to sell the court other names, which Arthur Miller used to convey a message about a crucible being put through a fire/trial and coming out in its purest form, through the character of John
But then when William tries to bring back the truth, proctor hit him with the line “Aye, but we did not.” He will do anything to keep his problems undercover. Throughout the play things get worse and worse, finally proctor realizes that the only thing he can do is to
He has lost his way.” “My friends of Hillsboro, you know why I have come here. I have not come merely to prosecute a lawbreaker, an arrogant youth who has spoken out against the Revealed Word”. In this part of the book it shows how the people did not open up to this change because they thought darwinism was evil. Society is the one that trained them to think like this, that it is evil and the only correct religion was
It criticizes the habit of using the play to improve or further academic or political motives. The author discourages people from retelling the story. This is because it does not help to improve the quality of the play and the objectives of lecture theatres are just poorer than the original objectives of the play. Similarly, the author uses a comparison of the situation to one of his own works called No More Prayers which was intentionally written in response to the cultural changes of Antigone. The author’s play explains the consequences of retelling myth over time.
1. Paraphrase: The narrator, Dr. Yu Tsun, recounts that his plan was undeniably risky and that he is a weakling. Yet, his intention was not to fight for Germany, since he describes it as a barbaric country. Instead, removing the Leader’s racial disdain for Tsun’s race, is the main reason. After collecting his thoughts, the narrator transitions back to his storytelling, explaining that he made a quick escape with a cab instead of a train.
Because of Friar John, Romeo did not receive the letter telling him that Juliet was not actually dead. Since the Friar failed to complete his task, Romeo never knew and so he poisoned himself. “Unhappy fortune! By my brotherhood, The letter was not nice, but full of charge, Of dear import, and the neglecting it May do much danger.” (5.2.17-20) In this quote Friar Laurence explains to Friar John that he has brought danger to Romeo. This is evidence that Friar John, a minor character in the play, is partly responsible for the death of Romeo and Juliet but Friar Laurence is still to blame for not taking the letter himself.
by my brotherhood,The letter was not nice but full of charge Of dear import, and the neglecting it May do much danger.” This is Friar Lawrence talking to Friar John about not delivering the letter. Friar Lawrence in that quote expresses being surprised and concerned about this because he realizes that he wasn’t cautious enough and that something could go wrong. Balthasar then told Romeo that Juliet was dead. This leads to Romeo going to the tomb where Juliet lays. Romeo then sees Juliet laying in the tomb and he thinks she is dead so he sees no point in living anymore.
What can thy silence do for him, except it tempt him-yea, compel him, as it were-to add hypocrisy to sin (Hawthorne 58)?" Arthur says this when he wants Hester to reveal his name as the adulterer. He cannot bring it upon himself to confess and instead wants
This is shown in Prospero’s overprotection of Miranda. Moreover, Shakespeare is in a constant struggle to chase and surpass Marlow as a writer. He takes certain parts of Marlow’s story and tries to improve upon those parts. In relation to the topic of forgiveness, Shakespeare basically is saying that Marlow his wrong for never allowing his character, Faustus, to reach forgiveness. Shakespeare actually wants to make Prospero a better character in every way.
