Upon seeing his wife, Oberon calls her a,“rash wanton,” which translates to a hasty willful creature (2.1.63). Oberon belittles Titania with words and actions in an attempt to gain not only the upper hand, but the Indian boy. It presents his capability to set aside emotion in order to get his way. When Titania refuses to hand over the Indian boy, Oberon becomes furious and plots his revenge by putting love potion on her eye (2.1.179-183). Oberon’s motive proves his willingness to perform any action for his benefit, even if it takes away from his wife.
Towards the beginning of the story when Creon wants to punish her for burying her brother, Antigone begs him to kill her, as “[His] talking is a great weariness.” (2.95) Not only is she trying to show disrespect by rushing the king, but is doing so arrogantly, putting herself above him for that brief moment. Although she starts off in the play as this naive and arrogant character, towards the end she develops a sort of humility and knowledge that she is doomed in a fate out of her control. She realizes fate is “Operative for ever, beyond man utterly. [Antigone] knew [she] must die...” (2.64). She accepts knowledge of her end, and lives on with it.
“Poo-tee-weet,” ( ). This is the final quote at the end of the book, after the war and all the deaths came into an end. “Poo-tee-weet,” isn’t just what bird say, but this symbolises the stupidity of war and mass killing. The bird symbolises what the reaction of people is after a war. One would find himself speechless, because all that is left ,is the blood of innocent humans being shed for power and greed.
Koby and Loby 's punishment are cruel and unconventional however they match their crime perfectly "Butler: What did you swear, Walter Perch and Jakob Duckling, before the court in Güllen? / The Pair: That we slept with Clara, that we slept with Clara." (33). The witnesses ' failure to testify truthfully equated to the punishment of blindness and castration for lying about what they saw and performed sexually. She is guided by the principle of retaliation when she punished the two false testifiers showing that Claire is actual more archaic by drawing on old methods of viewing
Even though she’ll basically become a slave. Also she writes how much she hates her villainous parents for breaking the law. She even said in her journal, “Each and every surplus could be the final straw that breaks the camel’s back. Probably, being put down is the best thing for everyone” (Malley 10). From this quote it’s clear the level of philosophical domination the government bestowed upon her.
For instance, Rikki Tikki tells Nag and Nagaina that it is wrong of them to eat Darzee’s eggs (para 25). This demonstrates an example of personification because Rikki upset with Nag and Nagaina always bullying the other the animals of the garden. This piece of personification supports the theme because even though Rikki knew that cobra’s are venomous, he still stood up to them and fought them. In addition, Nagaina tells Nag to go and wait in the house that Teddy and his family lives in so that they can kill Rikki (para 49). This also demonstrates an example of personification because Nagaina was fed up with Rikki Tikki ruling the garden that she sent Nag out to try and kill him.
Hera only married Zeus after his trickery, Zeus took the form of a disheveled cuckoo, knowing that she would feel bad for the bird.

The next goddesses i 'm going to be talking about is Aphrodite, she is the goddesses of love, desire and beauty; even though she had natural beauty,
Furthermore, the speaker continues on to say that when she dies, “then worms shall try/ that long preserved virginity/ and your quaint honour turn to dust/ and into ashes all my lust” (Marvell 27-30). The speaker is telling the mistress that if she will not do the things he wants her to do then she will die a virgin with the worms and other insects encompassing her body. This is the speakers selfish and lustful attempt to pursued and insult the mistress until she gives into him. The man allows his selfish desires to consume him and this drives him to talk to the woman in a demeaning manner in order to get what he wants. In addition to self-seeking love driving the speaker to become uncontrollable lustful in the poem, there is also contrasting feeling of selflessness and selfishness exemplified in

The people, angered by Gilgamesh’s acts, summon the goddess Aruru to challenge his tyrannical rule. She heeds their call and creates a man of equal stature to Gilgamesh named Enkidu. “In his build he is the image of Gilgamesh, but shorter in stature, and bigger in bone” (15). Being just as strong, wise, and powerful as Gilgamesh, Enkidu would challenge his whole existence and make him question who he really was.The intent of this was to seemingly show that Gilgamesh was not as powerful as a god, and to keep him in his place. Aruru’s creation would become one of his greatest motive forces to become a model
The author tells how sad is the life of a slave girl and how, as soon as she is old enough, and against her will, she would learn about the malice of the world. Meanwhile, male slaves rarely suffered from such abuse, and different from women, slavery mostly affected their manliness. As Douglas says while describing one of the oversees: "It was enough to chill the blood and stiffen the hair of an ordinary man to hear him talk." By saying so, he proved how, at a very patriarchal time, male slaves completely lost the bravery and "superiority" often used to describe white men. Therefore, slavery did have some different effects towards women and men, but always towards a worse condition.
Dido’s insane need for Aeneas, Camilla’s strong warrior personality, and Venus’ act as a motherly figure for Aeneas provide evidence of simple personality traits embodies in these characters. Dido is portrayed as a boy-crazy, love-struck lunatic. She cannot control her love for Aeneas due to the curse placed upon her. The curse, given to her by Cupid, made all her thoughts and
Everything was happy until Douglass’s master knew that Douglass’s mistress taught Douglass, and the master warned mistress that her behavior was dangerous and unsafe because teaching slaves to read were discouraged or prohibited. Slaveholders feared slaves’ rebellions and attempts of escape. After the master’s “lecture,” Douglass lost his teacher who became coldness like his husband. Douglass was so sad and wrote in his book that “That cheer eye, under the influence of slavery, soon became red with rage; that voice, made all of sweet accord, changed to one of harsh and horrid discord; and that angelic face gave place to that of demon”(Douglass, page 19). Thus, slavery, as the poison, blinded human being’s eyes and made people discard their good qualities which they had initially.
Buckley calls Bigger a “maddened ape” (376) and thus rips away the meager remains of Bigger’s humanity. Eager to blind the jury, Buckley denies Bigger’s humanity. No longer does the jury see a man’s life at stake, but an animal 's. Furthermore, Buckley shows the jury Bigger’s animalistic nature through the biblical allusion to the snake in the Garden of Eden. Stating that everyone should “crush with [their] heel the wooly head of [the] black lizard”(373), Buckley draws comparisons between Bigger and a snake--the physical embodiment of evil.
Othello and Frankenstein Othello Quote pg. 103 “For whiles this honest fool/ Plies Desdemona to repair his fortune,/ And she for him pleads strongly to the Moor,/ I’ll pour this pestilence into his ear,/ That she repeals him for her body’s lust;/…/And out the goodness make the net/That shall enmesh them all.” Frankenstein Quote Pg. 86 “Do your duty towards me, and I will do mine towards you and the rest of mankind.
