This event proves that Dunstan is the type of a person who would rather follow his own mind and heart then go along with the mob mentality. Ramsay sees Mrs. Dempster as his accidental creation, and he must “hate her or love her” (pg 167). This sense of possession shows up when Mrs. Dempster becomes his charge, and he pays for her care and visits her on a weekly basis. At this point Dunstan thinks of her as a part of himself: “a part of my own soul that was condemned to live in hell” (pg 176). He blames himself for having broken her spirits and is assured that he is the cause of her “saintful” suffering.
In this way people the chances of people challenging Big Brother are lessened. • “To die hating them, that was freedom.” Book 3, Chapter IV Page 281. Winston detest Big Brother down to his inner core. To him, going against Big Brother was the ultimate liberty in life. If he were to die still hating Big Brother, it would make the statement of everything he had stood for in life and the sacrifices he had to make.
Winston endures physically and psychologically tortures from O’Brien, but at last Winston betrays his own beliefs and supports the Big Brother, “He loved Big Brother” (298). After all the betrays from O’Brien and Julia, Winston cannot trust anyone anymore. This creates Winston’s mood of loneliness by staying in the society which no one is trustable. Eventually, this leads to Winston’s self-betrayal which means the Party successfully “cures” Winston to orthodoxy party member. Evidences of Winston thinks and acts as orthodoxy party member are “Almost unconsciously he traced with his finger in the dust on the table: 2+2=5” (290), “Winston was listening to the telescreen” (287), and one of the symbolic events is Winston plays chess alone, because this is what orthodoxy party members do.
Voltaire shows how Candide slowly realizes this logic when he encounters constant conflict and disaster after leaving the Baron’s castle and his old “perfect world”. Candide sees how almost everyone in this world acts selfishly only to reap benefits for themselves and take away from their fellow humanity. Some people probably think that Voltaire may come off as a pessimistic, but he really is just trying to show how foolish optimistic people and corrupt religion can be when you live in a world that constantly challenges you and makes you suffer so much. Essentially Voltaire is trying to tell us that the happiness of humanity is impossible, because the only “real” life is the life where you endure good things and bad things and not the life where you live in the best of all worlds and have no problems and everything is handed to
The reason why I endured desperation towards the extent of the book (1984) is, because Winston Smith has been fully and utterly defeated by the system. Throughout the course of the book, I was waiting and hoping that Winston would become victorious in some way. I truly dislike the society a lot and I agree with what Winston Smith is doing and I really want him to win. If he had won in some type of way, I would allege that Orwell is proclaiming that the human spirit will win in the extent of time.
A Brief Essay on The Power of Fear By: Myckael Franklin Fear. It drives us, shapes our societies and our beliefs. It even controls us, causing us to make rash decisions and bad judgments. Without a doubt, the fictional character Walter Lee Younger from Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in The Sun embodies that mentality, giving birth to the unspoken truth of fear’s hold on our minds. Looking at Walter, his drive to live up to and fulfill his father’s dreams, his blind trust seemingly out of desperation, and his delinquent behavior, one could see how it all originates from his fear, fear for the future of his family.

Gatsby’s heroism in the war, determination in the pursuit of his dreams, and his tenacious devotion to the love of Daisy forms Nick’s final opinion which leads him to give him the compliment. From all the events portrayed through the eyes of Nick in this novel, and after the death of Jay Gatsby, Nick states “Tom and Daisy-they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness…” Nick characterizes them by asserting that they are careless people who end up retreating back to their money and to the safety of their relationship after having their “good time”. After reading and looking back through specific parts of the novel and, as well, coming up with my personal conclusions; I must agree with the judgment to which Nick had made most frankly clear. Nick insists, by using the term ‘smashed’, that Daisy and Tom destroyed countless lives
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury uses freedom to show that it can affect emotion. The society as a whole is a distopia. Guy Montag, one of the main characters, figures out that corruption in the world and makes the right choice to avoid misfortune. Mildred, Guy Montag’s wife, is the complete opposite of Montag. She seems to have the worst misfortune and a horrible emotionless life.
You tallow face!” In this quote the consequences of Juliet defining her father’s authority is seen through the way that Capulet’s attitude changes, from treating her with respect to treating her like scum the minute she disobeys her father’s authority. Imagery is employed to emphasise Capulet’s harshness and the manner in which his attitude changes after Juliet purports to disobey him. Disobeying authority in the context of the law mostly has very serious consequences. An example of this is Act 3 scene 1 in which Romeo kills Tybalt in order to avenge Mercutios death. Although Romeos thirst for revenge was satisfied the consequences were dire.
