Another characteristic that Alan possesses, is arrogance. He demonstrates arrogance when he says that he has “good looks” and that she will “fall in love with him”. Alan is also a very persistent person and it shows throughout the short story, when he continues talking to Anne even when she rejects him, and he asks her if he can start all over. He doesn’t give up on trying to be friends with Anne. The last characteristic of Alan is courage.
Another was him falling in love much too quickly and deeply. Juliet’s flaw was her undying loyalty to Romeo. Both were deeply infatuated with each other, which was another attribute that contributed to their deaths. Romeo had several fatal flaws to his character. One was his quick transition of love from Rosaline to Juliet.
There are many similarities and differences between Edgar Allan Poe and Stephen King. Human beings have a tendency to have a morbid desire to explore the darker realms of life. As sensitive beings we make every effort to deny our curiosity in the things that frighten us, and will calmly reassure our children that there aren't any creatures under their beds each night, but deep down we secretly thrive on that cool rush of fear. This is why we slow down to look at car accidents, fires and find excitement in the macabre. We turn off the lights when watching scary movies, and when it’s time to go to bed, we secretly make sure the closet doors are shut.
These layers of suspense greatly add in looking into Tom’s head and understanding if Tom can comprehends the peril he put himself into. In the end, Tom brought the entire ordeal upon himself. Had he decided to not be so greedy and selfish, he would have gone out with his wife and enjoyed the night, rather than experiencing one of the most horrific events of his life. Instead, he finds himself on this narrow little ledge, very much regretting the past few decisions he had made. The author does a great job of making this apparent, and chooses to show it through irony, cause and effect, and suspense.
Another example is when Dimmesdale is returning home. We can see a dramatic change in his personality which was once shy and depressed to where he would, “He overcame every obstacle with a tireless activeness that surprised him” (225). Although, this change bring out the evil in him that was once hidden. When an old man had congratulated him or his accomplishments, “Dimmesdale could barely keep himself from shouting blasphemies at this excellent and gray-haired deacon” (227).When he sees a beautiful young girl he thinks to himself, “He could destroy her innocence with just one wicked look and develop her lust with only a word”
As another example when Edward was trapped in Jim’s house he was trying really hard to open the door but it was impossible because of his “condition” , Burton also uses eye line match during this scene between his hands, the lock’s door and his face to highlight how different life is for Edward even in the smallest details. It makes the public support him and justifies his actions during and to the end of the movie. Tim Burton uses non-diegetic sounds to create mood and drive the audience between sadness and happiness, playing with its emotions. With non-diegetic sounds, we can understand better how character’s emotions and feeling change during the movie. At first Kim didn’t like Edward, but then she started to feel sympathy for him.
“Paul’s Case” is about a young boy named Paul, who is miserable with both his home life and his school life. Paul shows his happiest times when he is at Carnegie Hall, working as an usher; whereas here, Paul daydreams a great deal about the performers in front of him and how he wants their lavish lifestyle that results in failure of his school life. Once his father, a single parent, discovered his behavior, he forces him to quit working at Carnegie Hall, apologize to his teachers and go work elsewhere. Paul’s father spends his time setting a good example for him, not realizing that he is pushing Paul away when he constantly keeps pressuring his son to follow a neighbor of theirs for he believes that he would be a good role model for Paul. Paul’s teachers are also giving up on him, saying that he is nothing but impolite and a disturbance in class.
His dream seems to be of acceptance and freedom. In the novel, Crooks begins to ridicule Lennie about his plans on the farm. Although Crooks becomes bitter, he feels he is realising his dream of being accepted whilst talking to Lennie. However, just like all dreams, his are crushed too, when Curley’s wife enters the scene and reminds him ‘to keep [his] place, Nigger’. Through this, the composer enables the reader to understand how dreams usually do not come true and when they seem so close, they slip away.
Romeo is a reserved, serious, self-absorbed romantic. His intense emotion drives him and, in love, he is a victim of rash youth. At the beginning of the play, Romeo is overcome with self-pity because Rosalind does not share his love: “Doth add more grief to too much of mine own” (Act 1, scene 1). However, Romeo is an emotional yo-yo and soon rises from the depths of depression when he meets Juliet at a masked ball and instantly falls madly in love with her “O she doth teach the torches to burn bright” (Act 1, scene 5). His personality is characterised by extreme mood-swings.
