Throughout most of the novel Pip is led to believe that Miss Havisham is his benefactor and when he finds out that it is actually Magwitch, he is truly disgusted. This disgust that he possessed towards Magwitch was very superficial and is not a trait that is associated with a true gentleman. Pip expresses how he “could not bring [him]self to bear the sight of [Magwitch], and [he] thought [Magwitch] had a worse look by daylight” (Dickens,349). This passage displays how Pip cannot bear to look at Magwitch because he has become such a superficial snob. However after Magwitch explains that he was treated unfairly by Compeyson and that he does not truly deserve to be labeled as a convict, Pip starts to become closer to him.
Indifference as Punishment In order to prevent future atrocities Wiesel gets his audience to see indifference not only as a sin but also as a punishment by enabling the audience to recognize indifference and its perils through depression that transforms into guilt and changes into hope. Indifference is what Elie Wiesel states as one of the greatest misfortunes and setbacks of modern society. He illustrates that indifference is dangerous by emphasizing the impact of societal consequence. He conveys this message initially through pathos by forcing the audience into a state of depression. Postulating that indifference is a dangerous road, he wants the reader to understand that indifference can have unintended consequences that will eventually lead to atrocities.
The Guilty Downfall Of Macbeth An analysis of the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare Guilt is the moral conditions one experiences when they feel that they have done something wrong.

The reader soon finds out that guilt caused by one’s own indiscretion will lead to mental issues such as hallucinations, sleep disorders and imprudent behaviours.
Macbeth's State of Mind in Act V scene iii Lines 1-29 In Act V scene iii of Macbeth, Macbeth receives reports of his army collapsing and his enemies approaching. Initially, Macbeth responds with arrogance and aggression, shown both in his speech and behavior. However when explored in greater depth, the images and words Macbeth emphasizes on in the passage reveal his fear and despondency. Ultimately, beneath the fear and despondency, it becomes apparent that Macbeth is aware that he is essentially doomed when he expresses resignation and world-weariness in the closing speech of the passage. The first hints of Macbeth’s fear and despair can be detected in his monologue at the beginning of the passage.
This is particularly evident in the first paragraph in which he expresses a clear anger towards Asquith and Grey, the Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary at the time of writing, even talking of ‘murder’, showing the extent to which he feels a pacifist. In the second paragraph he then goes on to attempt to weigh up his views, presenting an alternative argument that he is ‘tortured by patriotism’. From this it is clear that there is an inner turmoil in terms of his feelings towards World War One, and as he talks of the ‘Love of England, as being ‘nearly the strongest emotion’, this shows that although he is clearly patriotic as well as a pacifist, the use of the world ‘nearly’ suggests that these pacifist feelings override his ‘love’ and his patriotic feelings. He then goes on to support this view, referring to his pacifist protest/actions as ‘what I must do’. This suggests that whilst many men feel it is their duty to fight in the war for their country, Russell instead feels that it is his duty to protect against the war in order to protect his country in an alternative way, and that he knew it was his ‘business to protest’, most likely instead of being his business to fight.
In addition, Source 3 also explains that although Wolsey had fallen from his height of power, to some extent his enemies still feared the little power they believed he still held. We will examine the sources to analyse how far they do agree that Wolsey’s fall from power was complete. Sources 1 and 2 both agree that to a strong extent Wolsey’s fall from power was complete. Source 1 conveys that Wolsey was very emotionally distressed after his dismissal, stating that “heart and tongue failed him completely.” However, it also suggests a hope of some liberation from this distress by “Francis and Madame”. In contrast, Source 2 simply states that “The downfall of the Cardinal is complete.” However, Source 2’s credibility can be questioned as this was a report from the ambassador to the Holy Roman Empire.
The last few lines of the play are more emotional and full of regret: “mother, I didn’t mean to-“ P171. The build-up of arguments and confrontation all comes crashing down and the tone suddenly changes to sad making the ending more dramatic: “Joe...Joe…Joe...Joe” P171. Miller’s use of short sentences builds up the drama and Kate’s desperation grows to make sure Chris does not blame himself: don’t dear. Don’t take it on yourself. Forget now.” P171.
He purposely uses powerful adjectives in his phrases, such as “burnt her inside out” and “she was in great agony”; the word “agony” is emotive because it suggests an extremely unbearable pain. Sheila responds “miserably” which illustrates that she has been saddened by the news the Inspector had announced. However, this has an impact on Sheila but Mr and Mrs Birling, who are set in their ignorant time frame of mind, fail to see this. Their callous attitude prevents them from accepting any blame or responsibility for their own actions, and they fail to recognise that all actions have consequences. Their social class is also revealed when they are talking about Eva Smith.
In the very beginning of the soliloquy Wolsey is depicted with a bitter tone speaking of how “little good” the court had done for him. He goes on to describe the stages of one’s downfall; which in this case is symbolic to the changes of seasons and the sequence in which they take place and then proceeds to elaborate his dreary tone by speaking of his lack of depth and high blown pride that now must be hidden. The shift in Wolsey’s tone happens dramatically when he claims the world to be something in which contains glory and vanity and states that he “[hates] ye!” This phrase alone depicts Wolsey’s hostility and complex feelings. He later quickly shifts to a tone which contains one of self pity by calling himself a “wretched” man that does by the monarchy. The use of shifts in tones varying throughout the soliloquy reflects Cardinal Wolsey’s struggle to cope with such shocking news.
“I am in blood / Stepp’d in so far, that, should I wade no more, / Returning were as tedious as go o’er.” (3.4.136-138) In this quote, Macbeth is telling himself that because he has stepped into evil so deeply, it will be hard to go back to morallity because he will never be able to rid of this guilt brought onto him. He begins to feel so remorseful, that he starts hallucinating and realizing that he has done such treacherous deeds. Even though he can still see how his actions are terrible, as the play develops, he begins to inch deeper and deeper into his own destruction of innocence. Macbeth had always felt threatened by Macduff because Macduff knew what a traitor he really was. Therefore, he had wanted to plot to end Macduff’s life as to not pose a threat on his reign any longer.
