I also think that Brutus is against himself in joining the conspiracy. “No, not an oath. If not the face of men, the sufferance of our souls, the time's abuse-if these be motives weak, break off bedtimes, in every hence to his ideal bed.” (Ⅱ,ⅰ, 120-126). What Brutus informes is that the conspiracy shouldn’t proceed with an oath due to the lack ability of the idea of killing Caesar. Brutus uses ethos in his quote because he’s talking about what he believes is the right thing to do.
“Thus conscience does make cowards of us all” (3.1.87) Hamlet is angry with himself that he has let his conscience come in the way. Hamlet was not only obsessed with his own conscience but the conscience of others as well. "The play's the thing, wherein I'll catch the conscience of the king." (2.2.617) Hamlet wants to know what king Claudius is thinking in terms of his conscience before Hamlet acts. Here, Hamlet is thinking with his conscience, instead of just killing Claudius like he wanted to do from the beginning, he needs to confirm the conscience of Claudius to convince his own conscience it is the right thing to do.
Genavieve Rohling Pickle World History March 16, 2017 The Schlieffen Plan The Two Front War was not supposed to happen. The Schlieffen Plan was supposed to create a “controlled” war against France and Russia, but it turned out to be something completely different than they thought. Schlieffen made a plan to invade France by going through Belgium and the Netherlands but by violating Belgian neutrality and going through Belgium might bring Britain into the war. So they would now not be able to travel through Belgium to get to France anymore yet they may still take this course of action. After they were done fighting against France they would move out and try to start a war with Russia but there was no plan to fight against them.
Hamlet does not believe that he is actually insane when he really is. He truly believes that his insanity is an act to gather evidence against Claudius. This insanity leads him to take Polonious’s life which he justifies by saying that Polonius was dishonestly spying. This self-deception leads Hamlet to believe that he is self-righteous and better than his uncle however he is hypocritical in this way as he leaves Ophelia and Laertes without a father in the same way that Claudius did to Hamlet. Hamlets obsession with proving Claudius guilty and killing him in the name of justice eventually leads to Hamlets own murder.
This example of Cassius not compromising shows just how stubborn he is and how he will only settle for what he thinks is the right thing to do. Another example of Cassius not compromising is when he said, “I have moved already / some certain of the noblest-minded Romans / to undergo with me an enterprise / of honorable-dangerous consequence,” (I. iii. 129). Meaning he has already convinced many noble Romans to carry out this dangerous and honorable deed. At that point, Cassius thinks it is wrong to tell these noble romans they are not needed, so he can’t compromise or else he would not be a noble roman.
Firstly, he is concerned for what will come in the future not what’s in the present. “Presents fears are less than horrible imaginings;”(136-137) meaning the present dangers of the end of the war are less terrifying than what he is picturing in his head. Then he continues with the thoughts of murdering for the crown and how he would love to do it, but it’s so unlike him to think of murdering the king to gain power makes him unrecognizable to himself. “My thought, whose murder yet is but fantastical, shakes so my single state of man that function is smothered in surmise, and nothing is what is not.’ (138-141). No matter how much he wants the crown he would not kill for it and Macbeth is trying to coerce himself out of the thoughts of murder by saying at the end how he wants what isn’t yet real.
It is all about communication with your people you cannot expect the colonist to be happy about their invasion of privacy by having British troops all over the place watching their every move. Being controlled from overseas is not exactly what the colonist had in mind when they moved to the Americas to create a new life. The Boston Massacre could have been avoided if King George III did not enforce these taxes on the colonists and would have thought of another way to pay for all the money lost in the war the Americans probably would not have declared their
In Much Ado About Nothing betrayal is shown through the characters dialogue. Betrayal in this play is sabotage and even the lack of listening to a loved one. Shakespeare uses dialogue to show the nature of betrayal affects others. He does this through characters language because it is easy to see a certain character's plan or to know what the character has done In this play Don John betrays Claudio because he acts like he’s seen Hero cheating on Claudio. But really he just wants to ruin their relationship.
For instance, he wasn’t sure if the ghost was telling the truth so he modifies the play, The Murder of Gonzago, to resemble the murder of his father. While the actors are performing the play, he will watch Claudius’ reactions to see if he truly is guilty. He also asks Horatio to watch Claudius to have a second opinion because Hamlet’s judgment may be bias. He says, “The play’s the thing wherein I’ll catch the conscience of the King” (II, 2, 60). Another scene in the play where Hamlet thinks logically before lashing out is when he sees Claudius praying and is completely vulnerable, but restrains from killing him.
