This is building up tension because he saying that Odysseus is his food then the whole sentence is saying that he would eat Odysseus last as a gift. Polyphemos is creating conflict between him and odysseus which means that Odysseus has to create a plan to get off the island. Another technique was imagery, which is to use figurative language to represent objects or even actions in a way that appeals to our physical senses. A quote in book IX was, “So with our brand we bored that great eye socket while blood ran out around the red hot bar.” (420) This quote establishes the setting because it shows how odysseus is handling the situation by attacking Polyphemos when he's drunk so he can escape. This shows imagery because the reader can visualize the seen which is expressed through the author's descriptive word
Othello is so hurt and in a fit of rage, and passion he’s not thinking clearly or logically. His reasoning is, the only way he can get relief from the torment he’s experiencing is to hate Desdemona. If Othello wasn’t so intensely in love with Desdemona and blinded by jealously, he may have easily realized that not all men
All that selfishness causes his life to lack love and that is what leads him to destruction. Had he been honest, perhaps his life would have had another stream. In this play Claudius represents the worst in human nature -- lust, greed, corruption, and excess. Claudius and his corrupt court lie in the pleasures of the
I will give alms. I will make merry.’ That is what they say to themselves, in the blindness of their ignorance. “They are addicts of sensual pleasure, made restless by their many desires, and caught in the net of delusion. They fall into the filthy hell of their own evil minds. Conceited, haughty, foolishly proud, and intoxicated by their wealth, they offer sacrifice to God in name only, for outward show, without following the sacred rituals.
Balram recalls, “They [the women] hid behind the door, and as soon as the men walked in, they pounced, like wildcats on a slab of flesh. There was fighting and wailing and shrieking … "I survived the city, but I couldn't survive the women in my home," he would say, sunk into a corner of the room. The women would feed him after they fed the buffalo.” (22) Here, Balram is recalling how the women in his family have so much power, and are therefore able to force the men to give up all of their wages to them. Even though it was the men who earned this money in the light, almost all of it was lost to their families in the darkness. Because Balram experienced this as a child he is now aware that if he returns to Laxmangarh he will lose all of his savings, and end up like his father.
The Fat surround Florent--his half-brother, an unimaginative beef-butcher and his conventionally ethical wife (the daughter of Antoine Macquart); the fishwives whom he monitors; nearby shopkeepers--and all have a look at him suspiciously for his failure to settle right into a bourgeois existence. Not that the Thin--the neighborhood gossip, the markets ' weekend revolutionaries--don 't reason Florent just as much hassle. Neither bitter nor complacent, Florent is an inflammation that the markets tacitly move to dislodge. One of Zola 's own favorites, La Ventre de Paris is a splendid exposition of 1 guy 's fragmentation and an frequently painful
The bond was less of a friendship and more of a companionship. This is understood when Pi states,”You may be astonished that in such a short period of time I could go from weeping over the muffled killing of a flying fish to gleefully bludgeoning to death a Dorado”(Martel 205). Richard Parker pulled Pi away from his religious beliefs by creating a sense of confinement and saying, “If you don't kill, I will”. This results in Pi being pushed to break his vegetarianism and brutally kill the Durado to please Richard Parker. Pi sees richard parker as a companion and in turn feels the need to provide for him.
Of all the tales in Chaucer’s novel, the Miller’s is unquestionably the most vile, due to the author’s focus on infidelity, tricks, and revenge. As he tells his story, the Miller is passive-aggressive and spiteful, specifically toward the Reeve, showing his disrespectful personality. These few character traits, of the many poor traits the Miller expresses, show the audience that he is the most disgusting and greedy character of them all. If he were to interact with modern individuals, no one would have any
While Shakespeare's Othello is full of deceitful acts of immorality, Iago is behind each one of them. Iago’s, deceptions make Othello believe that his wife is cheating on him with Cassio. Through many remarks Iago is able to force images of sexual relations in Othello's mind. These images and the rage that the images bring soon lead to the hatred of both Othello and Iago. Iago is motivated by his need for revenge and his hatred that he has for Othello.
During the dinner with his uncle, the previous Monsieur the Marquis, he notices that everyone around looks at him with nothing but “dark deference of fear and slavery.” Even during’s his father’s reign, his family was “injuring every human creature” who came between them for “pleasure, whatever it was” (94).
