Suddenly she gets a little soft when she sees King Duncan sleeping. She says to her husband, “Had he not resembled My father as he slept, I had done ’t” (II, ii, 12-13). This is a big change for Lady Macbeth because up to this point, we have only seen her as a heartless woman who will do anything for the thrown. Out of nowhere she is compassionate towards King Duncan stating she could not kill him because he looked too much like her father. She still wants him dead but she knows if she did it she would feel guilty for her
We will forget Him!” uses not only the words but the punctuation to comment upon the effect of emotion and logic, alluding to Dickinson’s own struggle with anger and love. The narrator expresses her anger through the use of exclamation points, demanding “Heart! We will forget him!”(1). There is a clear indication that the narrator is wanting intellect to win over her emotions, but that is almost never the case. The narrator assumes forgetting her lover will make the pain better and is angry at her heart for not allowing her to forget him.
This pattern affects the story because without the bird Ashputtle would be lost. The gods have different emotions for Psyche some hate her and others guide her,“Next venus returned to the banquet of the gods.” (Benson 846).The gods are the symbols in the story that guides Psyche to what she needs to do and helps her through Venus disliking her. Venus did not like Psyche and others like Ceres who helped her and really was a symbol in the story that guided her to what she needs to do. Cupid is so in love with her he disobeys his mother and pricks himself. Psyche does not realize and doesn't trust the beast she couldn't see.
I think ultimately anger is what lead to Achilles downfall. When Achilles finds out that Hector has killed his dear friend Patroclus, Achilles becomes very anger and vengeful. The only thing on Achilles mind is killing Hector. Achilles is so angry at Hector that he only thinks about killing him and getting revenge. Achilles anger takes over his body and nothing can stop him from getting to Hector, not even the gods.
Juno suffers because she fears the fate of her most beloved city, and her actions to prevent it leads to the torment and suffering of the mortal Aeneas and his crew. Aeneas’s suffering at the hands of Juno, in turn, leads to the suffering of his mother Venus as she cares for her son and is distressed to know what he is going through. Early in the piece, Vergil wonders what would lead a god to do what Juno has done, and he then explains clearly the reasons and justifications for Juno’s behavior. However, he also wonders if any mortals would still be willing to worship her and present her for offerings after what she has done. He does not explicitly answer this question, but based on the depictions of suffering she bestowed upon both mortals and the divine, the odds don’t appear to be in Juno’s
Enjambment helps the reader either empathize with the claws, or villainize them. This device shows the difference in view that the poets took in conveying their heroes and villains. Enjambment magnifies how oppositely the writers felt about Fate. In Beowulf, she is depicted as a mother, or a god, looking out for her favorites. “Human” despises her though, and says that she didn’t care for anyone but the humans.
‘Lot’s Wife’ and ‘Africa’ are poems depicting the effects of the abuse of power and how the forceful villains mistreat others due to their positions of ’ superiority and trust. ‘Lot’s Wife’ shows how under a tyrannous rule which holds no regard for personal emotions renders people either devoid of humanity, Lot, or devoid of life, Lot’s Wife. ‘Africa’ demonstrates the chaos and terror involved in invasion and how an overwhelming military force and covetousness can crush the magic and God out of a place. I will argue that both poems show how excessive force and violence can have a strong impact upon both people and places as they circumscribe emotion and obliterate the potential of a civilization. ‘Lot’s Wife’ indicates how unsettling and unnatural the presence of the harbingers of caustic rulers can be.
Consequently, the people because of their beastly minds, after hearing Anthony’s speech will act chaotically. Thus proving Anthony’s use of rhetoric in Julius Caesar will unleash chaos because the common people are killing mercilessly and recklessly because they are incited by the rhetoric used in his speech.Although the people at times may think they are entitled to their own beliefs and individuality in this play,the people of Rome killing Cinna mercilessly supports a theme of “Mob mentality influences actions” because the people of Rome are acting based off of generalized group belief which is to kill in order to gain justice for Caesar.In conclusion, In the play Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare,the use of rhetoric has a greater power than it is in itself,but the use of rhetoric is manipulated by two deceiving men Cassius and
Caroline catches a fatal scarlet fever as a consequence of caring for Elizabeth. When Elizabeth catches the scarlet fever against the family’s advice and aware of her likely death she still sacrifices herself, something that Victor never does for any of his family members. As part of her dying wish she asks Elizabeth: “you must supply my place to my youngest children. Alas! I regret that I am taken from you; and, happy and beloved as I have been, it is not hard to quit you all?
Ralph and Jack most clearly represent Golding’s use of Juxtapositioning in the novel. Both individuals embody polar opposite character traits that are prevalent in all people. Evil, corruption, and satanic morals swirl around in the mind of Jack while the use of the thought process, the presence of a right and wrong moral compass, and the use of reason are traits allotted to Ralph. Ralph is the man that we all show but Jack is the true beast that lies in the hearts of us all. Ralph, in correlation with his insistence on being found and building shelter, decides to build a signal fire and places some of the boys to attend to it.
Since Grendel was born from evil he could never be happy which angered him when he heard all the people in Herot having a good time. Grendel was always sinning by murdering every night. In lines 1-2 it backs up my stating of Grendel being evil it says “A powerful monster, living down in the darkness, impatient.” Grendel was smart in many ways. One way Grendel was smart was because he knew when to strike. Grendel killed many of people undetected.
Creon using his own form of divine justification explains,”…you are saying what is intolerable, when you say that Divinities have providential concern for this corpse…this fellow who Came to burn the temples girded with columns…(282,286). It becomes evident in these lines that Creon believes that it’s only natural to punish the wicked for their part in harming Thebes. However, Creon’s biggest weakness comes from openly defying both the family bond and set of divine laws that govern the deceased. He “acts pitilessly towards Polyneices’ already grieving relatives by further inflaming their grief”(Ahrensdorf and Pangle 144). Creon goes into conflict with the pious rules set forth by the Gods in response to death.
Cupid flies away without saying good-bye and Psyche is left wandering in search for him. Though “She had no idea where to go; she knew only that she would never give up looking for him” (Hamilton 128). Psyche realizes her mistake of disobeying Cupid, her then wavering loyalty to him, has now become stronger than ever before and is willing to do anything to get him back. And so she becomes Venus’s (Cupid’s mother and goddess of beauty and love) servant, in hopes of finding him there. Liesel, like Psyche, also losses one of her loved ones; one of her closest friends, Max.
