We could also infer from this that Lord Illingworth is trying to shape or teach his son to become a version of himself, he behaves very vicariously. Throughout the play Wilde uses Lord Illingworth as a tool to provoke carious reactions from the audience. The first of these can be said to be admiration of his unsurpassable wit and popularity. However these tones of appreciation soon begin to sour and turn to notions of repulse. I feel Wilde did this to express how easily people can lose their highly regarded reputation; this is the social message throughout the play as Lord Illingworth becomes ‘a man of no importance’.
In conclusion, breaking a social norm is awkward and, for the most part, embarrassing, but arousing at the same time. However, I was able to experience some of same feelings men experience while asking a girl for a dance, and I just might ask repeat this experiment for fun next
Jed’s uses a scientific simile: “happiness running through me like an electrical current,” to enforce that their love emotionally brutalizes him, but because Jed is an extremely bipolar character, it also makes him happy. Also, Jed specifically uses scientific similes to persuade Joe and make him understand the “strange adventure” between them, for Joe is rather used to scientific language, and comparing yout love to a “steel cable” is more appealing to Joe. This shows how much he knows Joe, and how obsessed Jed is, if he knows what language to use in order to implore Joe’s attention. Jed includes pathetic fallacy in order to show his joyful emotions: “disc of sunlight.” Jed’s language is tremendously lyrical and clique : “sunlight falling on you,” sharing the codes of an archetypal love letter. His lyrical language is divinely expressed within an incessant romantic atmosphere: “you were last night in the rain, across the road from me, with unspoken love between us.” Joe’s ‘love’ is so strong that it heightens Jed’s senses: “I see with such clarity, in
He said, “I noticed that several of his punch lines had been unintelligible, and the audience had actually laughed at nothing but the cue of his hand slap.” (111) Martin felt that the audience was forced to laugh not because of the joke or because the man was being funny, but because of the cue that was provided. He strongly disliked this and wanted his comedy to be unpredictable and Rodriguez 2 more importantly memorable. This caused Martin to take a deeper look into his own act to make sure that it was set up in a way that the audience would laugh when they actually thought it was funny and not when they felt it was expected of them. He started doing odd unpredictable things to accomplish
The two banter back and forth, everyone else is laughing, and they keep enough distance between themselves that they'd be hard-pressed to do any real harm. And when the real harm does come--when Tybalt stabs Mercutio under Romeo's arm--there's an amazing reaction shot of Tybalt's face, and it's obvious that it wasn't done intentionally. He retreats, and even then nobody realizes
We laugh because we feel that George is inferior to us in his situations. His complaining of the clown’s name being an unacceptable clown name is unimportant and trivial. He nags about it and is unable to let go of something that is so unimportant. This allows us to feel that he is ridiculous and that we are therefore think on a superior level to him. Does the audience care about the clown’s name?
Although using humor might be considered scandalous to some critiques, everyone can admit that Chaplin made a remarkable film based on his famous sense of humor. As Enid Welsford (2008) said, “comedy evokes a critical and thoughtful reaction from an audience because it challenges symbolic orders.” The way Chaplin chose to present the characters in the movie is very special, because every person who watches the film knows who they are; however, one did not think that someone can present them in such a foolish way, which makes this portrayal so special. Although it was a controversial decision, Chaplin chose to portray these figures as clowns, which enabled him
This is an achievement, and one which a more agitprop documentary would not have been able to maintain. The “silence” of the filmmaker, however misleading and ethically dubious, also allows the raw material to speak for itself. Here, many of the Friedmans’ aforementioned flaws actually serve to humanize them and what seems wacky also seems irrational and desperate and stumbling in ways that are familiar to any honest member of the human species – that dance in front of the courthouse, smile and all, is best understood as a dance of
Gatsby would do anything to make someone happy. As one of the twins mentioned whilst at one of Gatsby’s parties ‘There’s something funny about a fellow that’ll do a thing like that, he doesn’t want trouble with anybody’. Altogether Tom Buchanan and Jay Gatsby are different in many ways as Tom is an arrogant, sexist bully and has no respect of others around him where as throughout the novel you get a sense that Gatsby is more of a kind and refined character. However Tom and Gatsby have their similarities as they both want Daisy but for different reasons- tom for his persona and Gatsby for true love. And both Tom and Gatsby enjoy their luxurious lifestyles and they both like to party all the time.
The creature is called “monster” in the book because people perceive his looks are a monster. When the creature finally sees himself he says, “ I had admired the perfect forms of my cottagers- their grace, beauty, and delicate complexions; but how was I terrified when I viewed myself in a transparent pool” (Shelly 94). The creature knows that he looks like a monster and gets rejected by everyone. It makes him even more angry because he is not a monster, he just wants a friend. 2.
