If Romeo was truly in love with Rosaline like he said he was, he wouldn’t have fallen out of love with her and in love with Juliet in a matter of minutes. Going to the Friar Lawrence's cell, Romeo informs him about Juliet
Within the story, Devil's Thumb had an ironic and angry tone. For the most part, there were words and phrases that expressed anger in the story. In the beginning, Krakaeur said "I'd told my boss I was quitting:","No, Not in a couple of weeks, Steve; right now was more like what I had in my mind". This proclamation shows how infuriated and unsatisfied, he was with his current job and his life. The ironic part is that he that foresees and believes that this will change his life, but in the end he finishes where he started.
Another flaw of Creon is that he is a hypocrite who does not stick to his own words, thus perjuring himself. In his initial speech he says “ - a man who does not take the best advice there is - such a man is the very worst of men and always will be.”. But later in the play Creon doesn’t listen to the advice of those around him, in the most basic sense he is saying that he is the worst of men. These tragic flaws work against him as the story progresses. Creon also fits Professor Stark’s
Just like an actor after a play forgotten. This shows Macbeth 's hopelessness that his life will not have meaning just like the plays in history that have been forgotten. Lastly, shakespeare uses negative diction such as “idiot”(V, 5, 27), “fury”(V, 5, 27) and “nothing. ”(V, 5, 28) This allows the audience to feel the negative connotation Macbeth has towards life and people.
Shakespeare depicts the theme of both fear and shock that Romeo feels when exiled in Act 3, Scene 3 of Romeo and Juliet. Immediately into the scene, Shakespeare uses personification when Romeo asks, “What sorrow craves acquaintance at my hand / That I yet know not?” (Shakespeare III.iii.5-6). Shakespeare sets the tone of fear using this literary device to show how there are to be harsh consequences for killing Tybalt. This theme is further explored when Romeo asks, “Doth she not think me an old murderer, /
Johann Kaspar Lavater once said, “The jealous are possessed by a mad devil and a dull spirit at the same time.” People who have become jealous are taken over by an evil greater than themselves, but are also taken by a insecurity they have inside of them, strong people taken over by jealousy so much- that they change so horribly no one wants anything to do with them. William Shakespeare’s Othello teaches us that in jealousy as either envy or fear, the only thing that could come out is the monster deepest inside of someone that even the best people wouldn’t want anyone to see.
The biggest thematic concern in this was faith. An example is used when Romeo yells out, “O, I am fortune’s fool!”(3.1.131). This refers specifically to his unluckiness in being forced to kill his new wife’s cousin. It also recalls the sense of fate that hangs over the play. Mercutio’s response to his fate, however, is notable in the ways it differs from Romeo’s response.
“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves”, is a quote by the man himself, William Shakespeare, concerning human responsibility, otherwise known as the capability of completing an obligation, or duty sufficiently. These commitments or duties play a role in how a situation will play out, and dictate the consequences that follow. The choices made from the beginning to the end in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet are all examples of how people’s decisions, primarily those of Tybalt, Mercutio and Friar Lawrence, lead to a heartbreaking fallout. The pressure and burden weighing down the young lovers ultimately overwhelms them, causing an expeditious chain reaction. The influences behind each character’s ill-considered judgments,
Following this both characters feel sorrow and regret in their own ways, the monster through guilt for the people he hurt and Frankenstein because his family were hurt by the being he created. By the
Oh, how I wish Odysseus would return. I know that if he did, he would defeat those vexatious suitors once and for all. Antinous is the worst. He is the leader and because of that, he is the cruelest and most arrogant.
The creature explains why his actions towards his creator, “I have devoted my creator, the select specimen of all that is worthy of love and admiration among men, to misery; I have pursued him even to that irremediable ruin. There he lies, white and cold in death. You hate me; but your abhorrence cannot equal that with which I regard myself”(Shelley, 263). However, the creature is sad about the event contrary to what someone would expect. He demonstrates once again that deep inside he didn’t wanted anything of this to happen because he was just looking for his own happiness.
The book, The Goldfinch, is a book unlike any other. This book deserves an A- because of Donna Tartt, the author, and her knowledge on many different and diverse topics, her ability to tie many of the character’s stories together, although, sometimes getting off track, and because of the extremely likeable character, Hobie. There doesn’t seem to be any topics that The Goldfinch does not cover. The topics that the book covers frequently and methodically are gambling and drug abuse, mental illness, and love in all forms. Donna Tartt, the author, talks about gambling and drug use through Theo’s father, Larry.
Edgar Allan Poe I withdrew my arm from her grasp and buried the axe in her brain. Edgar Allen Poe is a writer from the 1800. This family had suffered from tuberculosis. In Poe’s short stories the narrator has to solve a problem he went about it the wrong way, and people die, and the narrator gets caught.

The definition of dolor is defined as mental suffering, or grief. Dolor being the title of the poem, creates a sense of negativity and dreadfulness. A sense of sadness, grief,and pain overwhelms the reader. In the poem "Dolor," Theodore Roethke is able to capture the sorrow and repetitiveness of office life by speaking about boring and everyday objects, and making them seem important, powerful, and even lethal. In the first eight lines of the poem, Roethke uses personification to infer the weight of the office supplies to be overwhelming, and suffocating.
