The conditions forced because of the animosity between the families made the couple feel prohibited to be together and thus hiding their love. Due to the rivalry two other important characters were killed, altering the ending of the play. Additionally, the star cross lovers can be held somewhat liable because overall it was their decision to take their own lives and their decision to continue with their relationship knowing all the risks and ramifications. Undoubtedly the most significant influence was fate. Fate predetermines every outcome of the play, because it is an intense energy that no one can control or change.
They Say I Say - Ch.1 Rhetorical Analysis The thesis presented by the author was that for a person to give writing a point, the writer has to clearly indicate what they are responding to and not only what his or her opinion/view is. Also, the author persuades writers about how to properly speak/write in order. The entire point of “they say, i say” is to make sure the audience knows not only what you are saying, but what others are saying. The target audience is beginner writers and/or speakers. The author makes sure to point out easy step by step instructions and tips for those who don’t quite know how to properly write.
Ona’s wishes are especially not welcome by her mother who frequently warns her of her past and a family curse which revolves around dance and adultery. It is because of this knowledge of Mira Nedd’s disapproval of dance that she doesn’t tell her that she has performed in the dance troupe. She was automatically chosen to be the lead dancer because of her moves which came so naturally something her mother would have argued as manifestations of the curse. She continued to participate in the dance troupe discreetly until she was chosen to try-out for the national dance troupe but needed permission from her guardian to take part. Hoping that her mother would be proud Ona was not surprised by the way Mira Nedd received the news.
Deontology, as espoused by Immanuel Kant, would argue against the morality of lying from a moral absolutism standpoint. Lying is wrong no matter what, and any good that comes from it is discounted by the evil of lying. Utilitarianism, as espoused by John Stuart Mill, would consider lying to be acceptable as long as a greater good for society at large to come from it. A virtue ethicist such as Aristotle would look less at the act of lying but more at the decision to tell a lie and what that says about the person in question as a moral being. A person that lies to protect someone’s feelings or pride isn’t
The Pardoner is a prime example of his presentation of humans because he showed that he had good intentions, to help people and to pardon their sins, but he also had his evil side, which was to tell people that they have sinned simply to earn himself a few extra coins. But I ask this, is he really evil, or is he good? Chaucer didn’t think either or. He felt that a person is a person, no matter what they have done or how they think. He didn’t
Words, Words, Words "Don't judge a book by its cover" is a turn of phrase which cautions one to truly know and understand a person before passing judgment upon them. In literature, this is the duty of the author: to introduce his or her readers to the characters; to let the readers get inside the heads of the characters and see the world from their perspective. In the realtivism of the literary universe, only through empathy can character be judged. Some authors hold the reader's hand and tell them exactly what to think about a character; they spell out exactly what that character's motivations are and whether these are congruous with the morals of the world the author has crafted. Other authors, such as William Faulker, leave the challenge up to the reader.
What follows is a complex story of human emotions, relations, freedom and frustrations. The family bonding and the love between the siblings is brutally tested when Anna decides to go to the court in order to get ‘right to her own body’. Her decision comes as a shock to the family especially her mother, and is threatening to tear the family apart. Should the family respect her right to decide for herself and let Kate die or force her to donate and curb her basic rights? This is a question to which there is no simple answer.
Beneatha has to push against everyone in her family to become a doctor, and that just isn’t fair. The amount of spineless women in the past is just too much for her to handle. Her name is very fitting for her attitude and the way that she approaches everyone and everything in life. “Beneatha” is dangerously close to being the words “beneath her”, and I think that when she wants to be above everyone in the play, she is, and every single thing is beneath her. Walter’s anger and displeasurement finally comes out in Act I, Scene 1 when he says: "Who in the hell told you you had to be a doctor?
From what Meursault narrates to the reader in the novel, the reader can understand why he attempts to find order and understanding in a confused and mystifying world. The first way Camus attempts to plant the reader within Muersault’s shoes. Camus writes in a simple, direct, and uncomplicated style. The choice of language serves well to convey the thoughts of Meursault. The story is told in the first person and traces the development of the narrator's attitude toward himself and the rest of the world.Through this sort of simple grammatical structure, Camus gives the reader the opportunity to become part of the awareness of Meursault.
This was suggested as naïve optimism and unrealistic by anti-transcendentalists. They though that people who desired complete individualism would give rise to the worst aspects of human nature. Hawthorne in his story shows that relying on one’s self is a type of evil. An initial reading may show this tale to be about the idea that sin is in all men’s hearts and that there is a universal desire to keep it hidden. However much we may want others to be transparent, it is impossible because everyone wears a veil.
