The two short stories I have chosen are Machado De De Assis’ ‘Midnight Mass’ and Rosario Ferré’s ‘When Women Love Men’. Through reading and analysing both of these I can compare and contrast the two very different themes of love throughout them. The young man, seventeen years old, and the married woman, Conceição, thirty years old, meet in a dimly lit room, the parlour of the house. It is just lit by a kerosene lamp. The rest of the household is asleep as the meeting takes place between ten and midnight on Christmas Eve.

At the beginning of William Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ the protagonist Macbeth is described as ‘brave’, ‘noble’ and ‘honourable’, however Lady Macbeth’s and Macbeths desire for power consumes them. Macbeth’s ambition overrides his conscience and transformed his greatest strength into his greatest weakness. Macbeth’s inability to resist temptations that led him to be greedy for power, Macbeth’s easily manipulative nature which allowed his mind to be swayed, Macbeth having no self control and his excessive pride was what allowed him to renew his previously honourable and celebrated title into one of an evil ‘tyrant’. Macbeth is led by the prophecies of the witches after they foretell he will become the Thane of Cawdor. Not only the witches, but also his wife easily manipulate Macbeth as she attacks his manhood in order to provoke him to act on his desires.
Evan Freeman 6/29/16 P.1 Style Analysis Essay In the book Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury uses style to convey multiple meanings inside his work. For example on the very first page in the book he says that “It was a pleasure to see things burnt and eaten.”(3). This quote tells us that most people in the main characters society are obsessed with fire and what it does to things such as books. The way that Bradbury uses tone in his book can be described as being very dark. When Montag comes home from his long day at work he notices that his wife has overdosed on her sleeping pills(12).
In plotting the death of the old man, the narrator would spy on him for seven nights in a row. Strangely, the narrator would only look in upon the old man at exactly twelve midnight, no sooner or later, only exactly. But on the eight night, when he entered the old man 's room, he is described to have, “Never before that night had I felt the extent of my own powers.” (Poe “Tell-Tale Heart” 3) The word choices of the narrator is not a mistake. This power is shown when the narrator began to enter the old man 's room. While entering the old man heard him and called to him.
With her being naive Connie lived fantasies that expose her youthful innocence, much like that of Adam and Eve before their temptation by the serpent. Connie’s encounter with Arnold Friend is the representation of innocence being tempted by evil and sin. Arnold is a devil like character hiding in disguise. The author uses the concrete device of characterization to slowly foreshadow the true outcome of Connie, falling into
Macbeth met an untimely demise because he believed the sisters and he let himself takeover his consciences The Weird Sisters were the main forces of the entire disaster. “Macbeth (aside) Glains Thane of Cawdor: the greatness is behind” (1.3.116-117). The Sisters controlled Macbeth’s dangerous thoughts through the play. Macbeth had had no reasonable thought once the Sisters intervened in Macbeth’s life. The Sisters were the main control by convincing Macbeth of the things he wanted to hear to be truth.
Another quote that embodies this fact is when she tricks Therandil into believing that she is hurt. The satirical novel writes, “Cimorene started to say that it was nothing and that it had been her fault anyway, when she suddenly got a much better idea.” (41) . This quote leads you into how Cimorene cleverly tricks the young prince, and shows her wits as a princess. With this intelligent mind of hers, Cimorene could use her powerful stance in the kingdom to advance society. She could use her wits to make women have inalienable rights in the Medieval society.
