Dialogue is effective as it helps the reader to comprehend Macbeth’s feigned appearance, serving the purpose to develop Macbeth’s deceitful character. Additionally, the technique of antithesis is used to place emphasis on the idea that appearance hides reality and the art of treachery- betraying one’s own King. Macbeth’s “false face must hide what the false heart doth know,” expresses the hypocrisy that lives within him, which is often in direct conflict with his veneer of unwavering patriotism to King Duncan. The use of antithesis allows for the contrast between two ideas of “hide” and “know”, reinforcing the deceitful personality of Macbeth. The characterisation techniques of dialogue and antithesis is effective as it allows the audience to discern Macbeth’s masked evil ambitions and urges beneath his flawless loyal facade.
At the Capulet party, when Romeo is found out to be a Montague, Tybalt yells, “Now, by the stock and honor of my kin,/To strike him dead I hold it not a sin” (Tybalt 1.5.66-67). This quote generates a lot of fear for Romeo’s life and for the future of Romeo and Juliet’s relationship: “My only love sprung from my only hate!" (Juliet 1.5.152) This tension between the two characters adds to the feelings of pity and
He becomes violent and aggressive with Myrtle, his mistress, and “making a short deft movement ...broke her nose with his open hand (Fitzgerald 41).” Tom’s altercation with Myrtle accentuates his hypocrisy and lack of self-control; while he doesn’t feel guilty for cheating on Daisy with Myrtle, he feels that he has the right to maintain his authority over Myrtle. In this same scene, Myrtle, who is also drunk, draws attention to the negative aspects of her personality.
For instance we can see the outrage when he mention, “It is sinful in the extreme for you to make voluntary submission.” Another time the audience can see that he is angry is when he uses the phrase ,“And worse than all, you tamely submit while your lords tear your wives from your embraces and defile them before your eyes. In the name of God, we ask you, are you men? Where is the blood of your fathers? Has it all run out of your veins? Awake, awake; millions of voices are calling you!
Deception, defiance and double meanings are what make Shakespeare’s plays the great wonder that they are today. Shakespearian is known as the most poetic, romantic and comic form of play writing, however each play has strong morals and meanings in them. One of Shakespeare’s plays, the Merchant of Venice, focuses of the acts of deception. Some say that none of the characters in the play are seen as ‘kind’ by the end of it, stating that: “Grace, nobility and generosity of spirit are submerged by greed, distrust and ugly prejudice.” This play enlightens true meanings of deception on nearly every level; from Jessica deceiving her father, Shylock being deceived by the court and the deceitful tale of ‘the rings’, that is seen throughout the Merchant of Venice. Jessica is the beautiful daughter of Shylock the Jew, who she despises greatly.
Have you ever done something so hateful you regret it and wish you can take it back. In Romeo and Juliet, the destructive effect of irrational hatred becomes apparent when the Capulets and Montagues highly dislike each other and constantly fight which leads to Romeo and Juliet not being able to be happily married and eventually take their own lives. One example of irrational hatred is when montages and Capitalist constantly get in fights in the streets. For example “Do you bite your thumb at us sir? I do bite my thumb sir.”(1.1.45-52).
He is forced to amuse the king and his ministers and to make those cruel actions they compel him to make. For example, that time they obligate him to drink wine just to watch him get drunk due to he has no tolerance to alcohol. From where I stand, he has to take so much with all the insults of his phisical inability and the zero tolerance to alcohol. Even though, I do not believe the revenge, as the one he has planned, is the best issue to do in these cases. From my point of view, it seems that obviously the jeker (Hop Frog) has a great feeling of inferiority and difusion about himself for the continues insults and negative feedbacks.
Deception is an action driven with the motive to employ one purpose which can be to mislead another individual in order to gain knowledge, to get revenge, or to reveal a plan unknown to the public eye and keeping it that way for the dutiful well-being of the Kingdom of Denmark. In the tragedy Hamlet by William Shakespeare, deception develops into the character trait that initiates the actions, heartbreak, and revenge driving this play. This attribute held by Hamlet is the leading cause of this same flaw development in Ophelia, King Claudius, and many others in an attempt to reinforce the theme. This theme is one of heroism, but the deceptive notion each action reveals challenges the perception the reader has on each of the main characters. In order to be able to fully analyze the part Hamlet’s deception plays in driving the plot and storyline of this tragedy, one must understand that a foil character juxtaposes each character to illuminate their shortcomings.
This is encapsulated in Hamlet exclaims, “frailty, thy name is woman!” about his mother’s hasty marriage to her deceased husband’s brother (Shakespeare 1.2.150). In this quote, Hamlet is dismissing all women as weak-willed like he believes Gertrude to be, which affects his interactions with Ophelia also. Hamlet is cruel to her because of this anger he has towards women in general, so when pretending to be mad, he goes “full force in the misogynist rage” when telling her he used to love her, but now she should go to a nunnery (Traub 192). Ophelia can be seen as weak in this scene because she protests little against Hamlet and only hopes that his insanity will end. These crude comments Hamlet says to Ophelia continue throughout the play until Ophelia is being buried when Hamlet asserts that he loved Ophelia.
Shakespeare uses disguise in the play to show several confusions and internal conflicts between the characters, proving how malleable and deluded some human attractions can be. Shakespeare uses Viola (Cesario) as an example of a mechanism that can throw internal conflicts into temporary chaos. Viola willingly faces whatever comes in her way. Her love for Duke Orsino seems too constant and true, unlike the other characters in the play. The temporary chaos of the play is when Viola falls in love with Orsino, who falls in love with Olivia, who on the other hand falls in love with Viola’s disguise, Cesario.
