1. ‘I’ll wrack thee with old cramps, / Fill all thy bones with aches, make thee roar, / That beasts shall tremble at thy din.’ (1.2.372-74) Interrogate the representation of violence in The Tempest. In the Shakespearean comedy The Tempest, we are presented with the psychological violence associated with the abuse of power and continuous theme of colonialism explored throughout the play. In early works of Shakespeare it is evident that the violence interrogated in his plays consists of bloodshed and physical torture as opposed to his later works such as The Tempest where the play focuses on the ideology of psychological violence. The Tempest was one of the last plays written by Shakespeare and is recognised as one of his most popular works
George, on the other hand, is a passionate and faithful husband to Myrtle and is crushed to learn that she was cheating on him so much so that he assassinates Gatsby whom he thinks was cheating with myrtle and murdered to get rid of the evidence of his adultery. Tom Buchanan is an arrogant, controlling man, who does what he wants not considering about how his actions influence those around him. Tom is also the earliest person to use physical violence in the book, striking Myrtle in a fit of rage when she would not stop shouting Daisy 's name. "Some time toward midnight Tom Buchanan and Mrs. Wilson stood face to face discussing, in impassioned voices, whether Mrs. Wilson had any right to mention Daisy 's name."Daisy! Daisy!
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
Rage is clearly a rather extensive theme in the Iliad. Rage is defined as either a violent and uncontrolled anger or as a fit of violent wrath. In terms of the Iliad overall, rage would best be defined as a fit of violent wrath. After all the first line of the Iliad, “Rage:/sing; Goddess, Achilles’ rage,” (1. 1-2) describes the human emotion that leads to doom and destruction in this epic.
In today's society, as well as in the Odyssey, violence almost always seems to be the answer, in reality violence is almost never the answer. For example, in the Odyssey when Odysseus returns to find men trying to marry his wife, he confronts the men and says, “You forced yourselfs upon this house. Fight your way out.”(958) In another passage in the Odyssey, Odysseus shows unnecessary violence while receiving advice he asks, “Can I pass charybdis, or fight off Scylla.”(930) Instead of asking how to avoid scylla. Then, a real life example where there is violence instead, should be peace is when your car gets rear ended. You should stay calm instead of getting angry and yelling.
Shakespeare 's Hamlet presents readers with several scenes of violence, such as the deaths of Polonius, Ophelia, King Hamlet, and the fist fights between Prince Hamlet and Laertes. In Hamlet , the protagonist, Prince Hamlet, is portrayed as a very indecisive character. The reader is left to infer if Hamlet is senile, or if it’s just all an act in response of the world around him. Violence is littered all around the world of Hamlet. Because of this, the narrative of Hamlet is always more than it seems.
They also have completely different writing styles and choice of words due to the different writing styles. Both works focus on the horrors of war and what it does to the soldiers. The message the works convey both demonstrate how awful war is. They both demonstrate soldiers opinions on fighting and the war in general. Both are very good at using descriptive words and painting a very visceral picture
For many people that think Titus Andronicus is all about violence, well it is mainly from the criticism from “The Pequod” where it talks about violent act is the style and context in which it is executed whether we respond to violence with shock, laughter or satisfaction like for example the death of Titus’s sons in battle and how he buried them. Some of the lens that were used was revenge and feminism also stereotypes, revenge is a major part of Titus Andronicus and getting even but not every succeeds in doing so. Feminism comes in when Lavinia got raped by Tamora’s sons Demetrius and Chiron and how they took advantage of her body, she is represented as an object or thing. Additionally, how Tamora is an sexulised character, including by virtue of what trying to understand if Tamora is liberating or in male fantasy. Tamora
Lady Macbeth was feeble and let her guilt drive her to the point of insanity and suicide, unlike her husband, who was determined to die fighting. As Macbeth fights Macduff in the final battle, he cowardly says he does not want to fight him because he already killed his family, “But get thee back; my soul is too much charged/With blood of thine already.”
How Wilfred Owen conveys the horror and futility of war “My subject is war and the pity of war. The poetry is in the pity.” A quote by one of the greatest war poet of all time, Wilfred Owen, shows his attitude towards poetry, a medium he used to portray the chaos of war. In his poetry, he depicts the horror and futility of war that he witnessed. His poetry, which lies in the ‘pity of war’, stirs the emotions of the reader beyond just sympathy. The way Owen crafts the poem clearly shows the ‘pity’ that he emphasizes throughout his poetry.
The authors use pathos to grab us by our emotions and make us want to keep reading about such a historically powerful but terrible group. To do so they use powerful, livid, and emotional language. Levitt and Dubner help us to remember how terrible the Ku Klux Klan was and the repulsive things they did to not just “black people” but to human beings that did in no way deserve what they had to go through during slavery and even after with language that appeals to the senses. “The early Klan did its work through pamphleteering, lynching, shooting, burning, castrating, pistol-whipping, and a thousand forms of intimidation” (52). Levitt and Dubner start right off the bat using a rhetorical strategy called appeal to pity by very vividly listing the things the Ku Klux Klan did to their victims.
War is integral to the text, and aspects of it are explored extensively by Malouf. The poisonous manner in which patriotism drives unsuited young men to war is conveyed via perspective and contrast. Contrast of imagery conveys the overall nature of war, in its hierarchy and ugliness. Finally, language techniques such as emotive language and negative connotations are utilized to explore the gruelling conditions of war, and the emotional toll it takes. Malouf’s text conveys much about the horrendous nature of war and the phenomena surrounding it, via a variety of narrative and language
I think the whole lesson of this book was that violence was bad because every time someone fought it ended really badly. This book showed that even though violence seems easy and, you can easily sort things out with a fight it will come with worse consequences. The greasers always fought, and the Socs always jumped but in the end we saw how both of these resulted in two deaths, and a bad fire. In the end both the socs and greasers both realized that fighting was bad, and throughout the book we see ponyboy question why he fights. Johnny is proof that we shouldn’t fight because earlier in the book we learn that he was jumped by Socs, and since then he was always different.
He had forced her to live with him as husband and wife. Though he beat her up every day, a punch in the face, a scratch on her body and bruises. Sharpe was a very aggressive boyfriend Mona Hayes has ever had. Sharpe would threaten her and assault Mona Hayes and not caring about what effect this might have on the society. It was getting very rough Hayes did not like the way Sharpe treated her and wanted to get away from him.
The theme i choose was violence because there was a lot of fighting and in one part someone killed someone and it 's important to the story because it give it action. Violence is someone who fights or kills it occurs a lot because socs jump greasers it affected johnny and ponyboy. “Hold up!”a familiar voice yelled. “Hold it!” Darry turned to see who it was, and paul swung a hard right to the jaw that would have felled anyone but Darry. The rumble was on”.
