By lying down and closing his eyes he shows how calm he can be but how dangerous he can get. Later on, when the story revolves and comes to an end it changes the point of view towards Torres aspects. Torrez last words ‘’ they told me that you’d kill kill me. I came to find out but killing isn’t easy. You can take my word for it’’ has a huge impact on regarding towards Torrez personality.
“To be or not to be, that is the question; whether’ tis nobler in the mind to suffer...” (Shakespeare Act 3, Scene 1). This quotation proves Hamlet becomes inferior to others and the environment through his madness, causing him to express himself explicitly towards others. Hamlet’s madness not only causes his loved ones lives but it allows his “end” to come because he accepts every challenge from his opponent. Hamlet’s madness not only affects him but Ophelia, who is mentally torn apart by Hamlet. Ophelia was once flawless, but since her encounter with Hamlet she has fallen into the same madness and wants to kill herself.
Williams suggests that Richard perceives his hatred as his fuel for passionate revenge, but it is the anxious yearning for acceptance which he instead misinterprets. In the opening scene, Richard is “determined to play villain” , his decision to claim the throne, that he again places himself a victim to course of nature, which he blames for being “cheated of feature” , be his unnatural guide to his reign. Imperfectly shaped, he is noticeably attracted to objects that are as equally flawed as he is, which deters him from ever escaping his constraints and truly obtaining the so called ‘normal’ lifestyle that his surrounding others have refused him. The play opens immediately chastising Richard’s contorted body, emphasizing his impotence. William’s states, “Richard
Now, in part three of the book this is where he gets punished for his actions and the process of turning him “sane” begins. The process of punishment which Winston experiences, reemphasizes the theme of fundamental horror of physical pain, all that is happening to him cant be stopped, he is under the control of the party through O’Brien who is more then determined to change Winston. In this part of the book, we find out that Winston starts thinking that nothing in the world is more worse then the physical he is experiencing. O’Brien’s power over Winston is an example of the manipulation of the mind the Party has over their subjects, it is impossible to resist it as the body too is under control. We know that O’Brien is part of the
The embodiment of this dynamic view of reality lies in Nathanael's misguided perception of women. The reader is presented with a mad man, spinning a web of delusion speckled with neurotic behavior, and is influenced by a hesitant curiosity invoked by the intricacy of what seems to be nothing more than paranoia. However, the key to Nathanael's madness lies, not in this perception of women, but in his obsession to maintain control over his surroundings. Nathanael's perception of women is simply a product of childhood trauma which instilled in him an inherent fear of inferiority. This fear later resurfaces and influences Nathanael to project his inferiority onto female characters, as they are the most vulnerable.
William Shakespeare's Tragedy of Othello, the Moor of Venice studies the results of passionate jealousy and resentment. Antagonist, Iago's raging jealousy fuels the whole plot, causing hate, ruining reputations and unnecessary deaths, until the plays tragic end. Main character, Othello chooses Michael Cassio for a job promotion instead of Iago, who feels he deserves that position rightfully. Iago feels threatened for not being Othello's number one choice in the promotion for lieutenant. (1.1.15-22).
Some people use their power in a wrong way, and commit crimes because they want even more power that they already have. The blinding act marks a turning point in the play, because some actions like cruelty, betrayal, and even madness may be reversible, but blinding is not. Gloucester reflects the profound despair that drives him to desire his own death, after being blinded by Cornwall and Regan, “As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods; they kill us for their sport” (4.1.37–38). More important, he emphasizes one of the play’s principal themes, the question of whether there is justice in the universe. Gloucester’s philosophical musing here offers an outlook of miserable despair, he
Hamlet’s incapability to avenge his father is shown throughout the soliloquys, and shows the feeling behind the troubled prince. The “to be or not to be” soliloquy improves my understanding of Hamet’s failure as a revenger by seeing his feelings about death. What hamlet expresses throughout this soliloquy, is that he sees death as an escape and compares it to sleeping; which in fact is a very peaceful and restful matter, which he then compares to “the heartache and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to” during life. Hamlet shows throughout the soliloquy that he wants to kill himself, he’d much rather die but clearly cannot. In the soliloquy he says “Thus conscience does make cowards of us all”.
But he does. While Hamlet slowly is driven mad by visits from the ghost of his father and the scheming plots of his uncle Claudius, the one thing that actually keeps Hamlet focused and centered are his feelings for Ophelia. Hamlet’s seemingly unreasonable actions and questionable motives toward her are all part of a ruse to fool everybody at court and actually protect her from being used as leverage by the murderous King Claudius. There are several moments where Hamlet professes his love for Ophelia in moments where he didn’t have to, which in my opinion point to where his heart really lies. Let’s explore the moments within the text where Hamlet actually used his smarts to trick the other conniving characters into thinking that he didn’t love Ophelia and was going insane instead.
Laertes Laertes is a kind, loving brother and son, that when faced with overwhelming grief, becomes rash, easily manipulated, and short sighted. His actions caused by these emotions greatly influence the outcome of the play in ways that no other character’s could. His love for his family fuels his hate towards Hamlet, and his hate for Hamlet allows him to be easily manipulated by Claudius. All of these intense feelings cause him to go after Hamlet in a way that affects people more than he believed it would. When Laertes speaks to Ophelia, warning her to stay away from Hamlet, he does so because he knows that the relationship between them can only end in heartbreak.
