An Inspector Calls Mr Birling Priestley immediately establishes that the Nineteenth Century ideals were wrong and needed to change. He highlights this through the character of Mr Birling as in Act 1 we learn that Mr Birling is a man who cannot be trusted as his ideas are inaccurate. He does that by using dramatic irony. He delivers this message by the character Mr Birling who says: “war is impossible”. This makes the audience think that Mr Birling is wrong about everything else and he can’t be trusted.
Curley has obviously decided it is not worth fighting him but before he leaves he instructs Lennie as he still wants to intimidate him and show him that he has an authoritive figure. In this extract Curley has clearly unnerved Lennie as Lennie constantly seems to be in some discomfort for example “Lennie squirmed under the look and shifted his feet nervously”. John Steinbeck does well to produce powerful imagery by simply using the word “squirmed”. This shows that Lennie is embarrassed and does not know what to do and this causes tension as Curley senses his advantage while George is worried about a possible confrontation. Another example is “Lennie twisted with embarrassment”.
Arthur Miller stated, “He was a kind of man-powerful of body, even tempered, and not easily led”. He also stated, "In Proctors presence a fool felt his foolishness instantly." These quotes proved Proctor to be a very powerful and influential man. In this act, the audience learned about Proctor’s affair with Abigail Williams, which was Proctor’s greatest mistake; however, Proctor did not want the affair any longer, he stated, “Abby, I may think of you softly from time to time, but i will cut off my hand before I ever reach for you again. Wipe it out of your mind, we never touched Abby."
Imediantly showing Mr Birling’s personality, which is selfish. Then he goes on and saying, “There isn’t a chance of war” this dramamtic irony leads the audience into looking forward to seeing Mr Birling being prove wrong. In addition, this shows Mr Birling’s thoughts on responsibilities are wrong. Saying this, the sudeience should not agree with him and his thoughts on responsibilies due to the examples of dramatic irony. After he had finished his speech on keeping labour cost down and profit high, Inspector Goole enters and throws a shocking news at the Birlings.
Alienation Holden Caulfield, an interesting man, shows that many people show phoniness and how Holden despises them to a point where he alienates them. This book shows many themes, one of them being revolving around alienation and phoniness. J.D. Salinger’s masterpiece The Catcher in the Rye shows throughout the book that Holden alienates himself from other people because he fears the phoniness of adults. Stradlater, Holden’s roommate, shows phoniness by how he is a “secret slob” also how it annoys Holden to where he gets into a fight with Stradlater over his sloppiness with Jane, which leads Holden to alienating him.
In this unimaginable position of sorrow there is nothing Creon can do to fix anything at all. Creon’s major flaw of stubbornness leads to pointless actions, which causes a series of suicides, and finally a tragic downfall. The tragic hero’s regrettable path and destination of sorrow without a doubt prove Antigone to be a Shakespearean Tragedy. But the fact that Creon displayed inability by refusing to face his mistakes and in return received true inability that forever disables him from escaping his guilt and ever becoming the king he once aspired to
The society breeds ignorance of the physical change of a “true image” that is not subsequently developed, influences the fear of deviations. Firstly, Joseph Strorm is very strict and examines differences in appearances thoroughly to send people to suffer in the fringes afterwards. Joesph was struck when David stated
In William Shakespeare’s play, Henry VIII, a bitter tone, structured figurative language, and biblical allusions are employed by the author in the process of conveying Cardinal Wolsey’s complex response to his dismissal from court. Shakespeare’s use of biblical allusions brings emphasis to the extent of Cardinal Wolsey’s downfall to that of Lucifer’s, the author reflects Wolsey’s lack of hope. This allusion serves as a tool to help establish the idea that Cardinal Wolsey has fallen from a grace he shall never return from. He expects himself to live in a life full of shame and misery after his dismissal. Through the use of figurative language a powerful understanding of Wolsey’s despair is established.
Now that he's aware of the murderous act, his actions become "rather impaitent" and this means that instantaneously he's battling against Goole. Through Priestly's use of hostility in the context of Birling's behaviour, the reader begins to question his dubious acts, and start to discover that there is tension deep routed routed withon the Birling family history, taht they're yet to disciver. Likewise,Priestly symbolises the tension within the family by the stark and interrogating light. The light becomes "white" and excruciatingly bright, and his shows the erecting tension as the play progresses. With the "dark" and cosy lighting at the beginning it juxtaposes to the opposite spectrum and by this the audience becmes aware of this tension that grows within the Birling's as each character finds a snippet of information that they'd rather not hear.
One can assume that Meursault's lack of care, in the end, allows him to understand the meaninglessness of mankind's struggle for acceptance. Both, Meursault and Camus are aware that in spite of all the pleasures life has to offer, human existence is absurd: "we exist in and are inescapably related to the world; ... and that death is inevitable and final end of life" (Rhein 3). The significance behind The Stranger is men's endless struggle to survive in an irrational universe he can't understand, and that the only certainty in existence is death. Mersault’s absurdity brings him somewhat joy. His indifference to Marie's affection towards him demonstrates that even though Meursault enjoys her companionship, it made no difference whether or not she loved him deeply enough to the point of getting married.
