Shakespeare characterizes Brutus in such a way that it initially hides his real purpose and involvement in the story, though reveals his character traits to be very similar to those of the archetypal hero. Early in the play, Brutus is shown as a constant and stable character, and obviously wouldn’t take on a radical change like that of a tragic hero. However, as the story progresses, Shakespeare creates such a deep and conflicted character to the point that Brutus can garner both pity and respect from the audience. The archetypal hero is usually born into a society that is usually in a state of conflict, one that will cheer “in the triumph over Pompey’s blood”(I.i.52), as the people celebrate Caesar’s defeat of a former ally. Rome was a breeding ground for trouble within its political body, its people, and the military protecting it.
The character of Jack in Lord of the Flies serves to highlight the uneven cruelty and power distributed through society. His character depicts a battle between good and evil, this theme is one that was influenced by Golding's own experiences in World War two. Jack represents the breakdown in society and how the “blood thirsty”, savagery in human nature can cause the fall of man and lead to autocratic tribalism. Jack’s craving for power is made evident right from the beginning of the novel. when the boys decide that they “ought to have a chief”, Jack jumps at the chance with “simple arrogance”, and states that its because he is “chapter chorister”, and can “sing C sharp”,so in other words, for no valid reason at all.
Another novelist by the name of Heinrich Mann, makes his opinion public in a political journal in 1931. He is very anti-war as well, frankly saying, “People are already worn down by the struggle of daily life then, more ready to submit” (Doc 10). The effects of the war were terrible on the people, and Mann knows that anything but a united republic would be disastrous for them all because of
The British highly disrespected the American nation and I agree totally with James Madison for wanting to go to war. Reading the article Thomas Jefferson a “firebell in the night” I could see that America was going through one of the worst financial crisis. He was saying in the beginning that he was in shock with what was going on and he feels as if the government doesn’t care much for the people of their own country. He feels that he has more care for his country and would do whatever
Japanese planes and submarines make the society afraid of foreigners, many people are tense and their ‘...eyes sharpened whenever...they...heard a foreign accent’ , and all Japanese people become the enemy. The white society starts to do many things to protect themselves, which is unfair to the foreigners. The Japanese are imprisoned due to their liability to Australia during the war because some Japanese people could be involved as spies and guide the Japanese army. Many innocent people were forced into small cells. Aborigines are also suspected of helping the invasion of the Japanese which shows that they have never been treated as the same class of human beings by the whites: "Your Abo is unreliable... ” “He'll collaborate.
“Watch its bloody course”. He makes the audience realise that the play is a tragedy and Eddie cannot escape his destiny. He also introduces the main comments to the audience, “settle for half”, “The law is not a friendly idea “ which means he is saying make sure you do anything for your family, which relates to what Beatrice talks about when he is telling the story of Vinny Bolzano.

Theatre and drama is one of those things I recently ran into which I thought were the same. Most people would see drama and think of the genre instead of the art. The art behind theatre and drama would seem like they are exactly the same, but drama takes this creative course to making things fun for the participants. There are three contrasting factors that may help understand the difference between theatre and drama: script versus dialogue, director versus leader, and rehearsed versus not practiced. My first point talks about the difference between script and dialogue.
Hitler became so over-confident as a result of this pact that he did not believe the Allies would honor their promise to protect Poland from Germany, he ignored all warnings from Britain and France and invaded Poland. The Nazi-Soviet Pact aided Hitler with his aims, such as regaining lost land. The Treaty of Versailles only provoked revenge from the German nation. The humiliation of the war guilt clause and the reparation charges were a bitter end to the Germans. A proud, military country which was ordered to disarm and hand back hard fought land.
This was the perfect habit to introduce the rest because it showed the reader Covey’s direction from the beginning. I feel like this habit will prove to help me personally because I tend to show indecision in my actions at times. I now realize that because my actions tend to be rational in nature, I should take initiative sooner than later. Indecision in business shows weakness and a lack of knowledge, so taking initiative not only makes things easier, but it also demonstrates confidence in leadership. Leadership requires planning, and making goals ahead of time is important for success.
