Now, even though Nick is the storyteller, this arrogant self-description shows that he is not reliable due the fact that he thinks of himself as superior to the masses. He lives in the West Egg district of Long Island, next door to Jay Gatsby, the protagonist who inspired him to write this book. Shortly after he describes himself he begins to describe Gatsby. He is fascinated with his neighbor for the simply astounding fact that Gatsby meets, and even exceeds, his expectations. The two men are on completely different ends of some form superiority complex.
Yet the reality of it is that this man is a king of great power whom they will soon bow down to. Another example of how characters can be perceived throughout the novel is shown throughout the journey of the main protagonist, he was also perceived by his appearance as a small, witless, futile and incapable to carry the great burden before him. Yet as the novel heads towards its crucial climax, he completes the task that many people perceive as impossible for him and rose to be the only one capable of such a task. Another Internal representation of perception is a main character who is perceived as a vile and psycho creature. It is later on shown that the story of this creature is a sad one and he is not at all what he is perceived to be.
For whoever wants help on discussing appearance and reality in Othello: Firstly, I'm by no means an expert so please don't take everything I say as fact!! But really when discussing Shakespeare, all you need to do is be able to substantiate what you say with some evidence.

We can keep our assumptions to ourselves but unless we consider all aspects of the situation we are not thinking critically. It is also important to recognize when you have made an assumption and attempt to rid yourself of the assumption, keeping it there will only make matters more difficult. • Fallacies are a mistaken belief, especially one based on an unsound argument. Fallacies in written arguments generally come from some type of news source: Biased material that tries people to believe something though it may just be for their gain. Fallacies in oral arguments are similar to written arguments.
Reasonable Eccentric Behavior of Dorian Gray . In the book, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Dorian Gray is a handsome and proper man, but on the inside he is full of madness, guilt and misery. Initially he’s a melodramatic and petulant young man , but after realizing his true morals –his life skews toward the futile side.

Honestly in this type of argument it comes down to the better facts rather than opinions and that’s why Cillizza makes the better argument. From both sides of the argument we can see the basic ideas of each authors but now let’s go deeper On the side of privacy. As privacy is an important issue as to the people, we can see that the people believe that if you “watch someone long, and you’ll find something to arrest”. (Paragraph 4). Schneier shows this to prove that doing nothing can lead to trouble with blackmail or abuse with surveillance information.
Voltaire uses Candide to throw his beliefs in the reader’s face with the radical extremes of his story. Kaufman mischievously uses laughter to win the minds of his reader, and then slips a lesson in while they’re not looking. Perhaps the best example of this is found by comparing a main character from each novel. Candide is the main character of the like-titled book by Voltaire; hence he has perhaps the greatest lesson of the book. At first we see Candide believing unwaveringly in Pangloss’s teachings, that “all is necessarily for the best in this best of all possible worlds” (Voltaire, 4).
The force, which he speaks of, is the “[m]aterial possessions [that] can be taken by force” (Russell 9). We currently live in a government in which our belongings can be taken away from us. “The essence of government is the use of force in accordance with law to secure certain ends which the holders of power consider desirable.” (Russell 28) The government has a power over us, but that power should be used against the force that takes away what we need. Russell compares materialism to creativity. To him creativity is “[s]piritual possessions [that] cannot be taken in this way.” (Russell 9) By creativity he means an emotion or originality, which usually lies inside someone.
Also if I didn’t say in the essay Toms brother is a big mouth snitch. He is always trying to get Tom in trouble. Honestly I really like this story it is one of my favorites. Mark Twain is a good writer he can put just the right amount of suspense catchy phrases and poetic devises to make the story interesting and it makes the story come to life in your mind. When I read it I was in my own world.
Pinocchio Character Traits Character traits are natural qualities that shape the way a person acts and ultimately whom they are at the core of their being. In “The Adventures of Pinocchio” by Carlo Collidi and Roberto Innocenti, Pinocchio exhibits three key traits that shape his experiences throughout the book. The first example is his gullibility, ultimately the cause of nearly all of his misfortunes. Secondly Pinochio was disobedient to all those he should have listened to; he lost a great deal when he decided that he was to do only what he wanted. Thirdly Pinocchio was very obnoxious, stubbornly so; this was most prevalent when he was given help by others.
