This, to the audience, will seem ridiculous and unnecessary creating a subtle sense of humour. Nearing the end of Act 2 we learn about Viola’s plans for her disguise in order to appear less vulnerable. She then goes on to say ‘thou shalt present me as an Eunuch to him’ which will yet again appear an overdramatic act to the audience. In act 3, Sir Toby Belch is introduced into the play. Shakespeare’s wit and word play used even for simply just the names of the characters can build up laughter.
Oberon is constantly very forceful towards Puck, his hobgoblin whom follows all of his commands, and yet Puck often seems to be unsuccessful in completing Oberon’s request correctly. This often reflects badly on Oberon as a leader showing that mediocrity is acceptable to him. Puck says,” I'll put a girdle round about the earth in forty minutes.” (I,I, 175-176) Thus explaining that he can get the job done fast, however, he ends up doing the job very wrong when he puts the potion in the eye of the wrong Athenian. However, Theseus instills where he stands as a leader, and he makes sure his people understand where he stands as part of their society. Theseus tries to give Hermia more choices but
Overall, the Inspector seems to be the most powerful character in the play, but at times he doesn’t show his over-powering presence and lets the Birlings show how venerable and culpability. But, when he does show his dominance, the other characters realise how much power he really does have. I think he has the most powerful presence in the play because just by showing his actions and only using one word can make him appear superior to characters such Mr Birling, who are arrogant and think having a status in community and knowing important people can make look like he has a high
He's not your simple classic protagonist, but he is a very well developed character. His characterization is best brought by his ending monologue; through all the thick layers of greed, drunkenness and lust, Conker is but a man, and throughout the whole game, he was searching for more, for everything that he truly wanted, is what he already had. Final verdict: the main characters are well made, but the supporting characters got really annoying really
Everyone must learn to control this pride, and if they cannot, learn to accept the consequences. The ability to maintain pride without being arrogant puts some individuals above the masses. Throughout his epic poem, The Odyssey, Homer's use of plot events and conflict emphasizes that while a small amount of pride is helps one to succeed, excess pride leads to arrogance, destroying even the best people. Throughout the plot of Homer's epic, several men make challenges to Odysseus due to their excessive pride and arrogance, pushing them towards their demise. Each of these men makes an ill-advised challenge to Odysseus because of their arrogance and comes out physically or emotionally damaged.
Ralph’s ability to persuade the boys to behave civilly was most impressive until the boys slowly began to become savage. Despite Ralph’s strong morals he was still vulnerable to savagery. This is shown when he encounters the pig Chapter 7. This was a surprising change to Ralph in the novel, as it seemed like he could not control his excitement. Saying things like “I hit him!
Bottom is ready to take on anything. He wants to play every part in the play available. “And I may hide my face, let e play Thisbe too. I’ll speak in the monstrous little voice: Thisne, Thisne!” (1.2.43). He also talks about playing the lion as well.
Shakespeare has chosen to insert comedy into his play as it reliefs the reader from the very depressing scenes that happened through out the book and changes the reader’s perspective on the characters. Comedy was added to the play it two main parts and many small sections in different scenes. One of the main Scenes that had a big role in the comedy in Hamlet is Act 2 Scene 2, the scene where the first meeting that happened between Polonius and Hamlet. Hamlet enters the room, and he immediately insults Polonius by calling him a “fishmonger”, then Hamlet says directly after it “Then I would you were so honest a man”, complementing him by calling him an honest man. Hamlet was trying to be clever with Polonius as he kept asking him questions that he already knew the answers to such as “…have you a daughter” pretending that he does not know that Ophelia is his daughter.
Ponyboy’s hatred towards Steve is obvious when HInton writes “ I’d never tell Soda, because he really like Steve a lot, but sometimes I can’t stand Steve Randle. I mean it. Sometimes I hate him.” In some ways, this speaks well of Pony. He’s defining his ideas about right and wrong. He’s learning to judge character, and is using judgement to just help make sense of the
Benevolent Actions Turned Calamitous In Shakespeare’s Much Ado about Nothing, Don Pedro’s seemingly generous gestures all end in disastrous fashion for himself. In this classic play of young love and misfortune, Don Pedro, also referred to as “the Prince,” is the noblest character in the social pecking order of the play. Even one his friends, Benedick, though equal in wit, always defers to him and his beliefs because his position depends upon his favor. Don Pedro is the highly trusted individual among the other characters in the story. Don Pedro has power and he is well aware of it; whether or not he takes advantage of this power is up for debate.
