“The Ballad of the Sad Cafe” is a story of a love triangle in which McCullers has illustrated physical changes and also their behavioural changes in all the three characters, specifically Cousin Lymon. Cousin Lymon was an abnormal looking grotesque character “the man was a hunchback. He was scarcely more than four feet tall” (6) He was not very attractive “His crooked little legs seemed too thin to carry the weight of his warped chest and the hump that sat on his shoulders” (7). Cousin Lymon was very smart since he accomplished to fool Miss Amelia that he was her cousin “hunchback scrambled among these belongings and brought out an old photograph” (8). Cousin Lymon proofs himself to be the cousin of Miss Amelia through this old photograph when it was even hard to distinguish the faces of the two ladies in the photograph.
It’s your stereotypical castle, dark, frightening and funeral like. Basically not the type of place anyone in the right mind would approach or maybe we all judge too much on appearances? However, this is where a kindhearted Avon lady, Mrs. Bogg (Dianne Wiest) pays a visit. Wiest takes Depp back to the end of the suburbs with her and has that motherly instinct to help him. Where as all the nosey neighbors quickly interfere with phone calls and tea parties, Edward soon becomes a walking celebrity as he dazzles them with his talent on making there gardens, dogs and selves stunning with his hands, his scissorhands.
The Topic I love the focus of Jill's essay. So many essays on an influential person have a tone of hero worship as the writer tells us how wonderful Mom or Dad or dead Grandma or Coach or Uncle Harvey is. Jill, however, focuses on someone who in many ways isn't even likable. Susan Lewis is unreliable, rude, poorly educated, and terrible at running a business. She is, as Jill points out, an unlikely person to choose for an essay on an influential person.
Gatsby tries to set up a neutral meeting spot at Nicks house on purpose. Nick then leaves Gatsby and Daisy alone and when he returns back into the room, Daisy is crying, guessing its tears of happiness, due to the fact that Gatsby and Daisy are in a relationship from that point on out. Also, Daisy coming from old money, just the way of her life. She can't help that! Gatsby changes all that by showing her in chapters 5 & 6 all of his fancy clothing and around his luxurious household.
Mitch’s kind character is also contrasted with the harsh character of Stanley. As the play progresses Stanley’s character becomes more transparent and we see what he is capable of in scene 10. Stanley is churlish and lacks wealth; he lacks moral values and takes the law into his own hands. Williams portrays Stanley like a beast, Blanche thinks of him “like an animal”. Williams also highlights his violent manner by stage directions, how Blanche has frightened look appears in her face and that Stanley says “STELLL-AHHHHH!” with heaven-splitting
These differences augment the emotional reaction and the understanding that a modern audience may elicit from 'Macbeth Retold'. Ella Macbeth parallels Shakespeare's Lady Macbeth with the line "You're too full of the milk of human kindness." Juxtaposition is used immediately after as Ella continues to lecture Joe in a more modern-day dialect. In this scene, instead of reasoning with her husband, Ella humiliates him into murdering Duncan, giving today's viewers more of a reason to empathise with the chef. Irony is then introduced into the piece a few scenes later when Joe accidently breaks a bottle of milk and cuts his hand while cleaning it up.
Although the line, “no-one had got around to fixing it up yet”, shows that he is still seeing everything as a product that has the potential to be fixed. The fifth stanza has an angry tone as Dawe describes people as being “godless, money-hungry, backstabbing and miserable”. In this stanza, his childhood ends and he enters adulthood, this is shown through the line “goodbye stars and soft cries in the corner”, the once innocent child has now become a greedy business man who is selfish and ruthless. In stanza six, his wife (Alice), is driving him home from a not so good dinner party, as he is angry and getting annoyed with his wife, “now take it easy on those curves, Alice, for God’s sake…” they crash. His last words “watch it” demonstrates the irony of being a product, as if to watch it on
The reader’s interpretation of these characters is how Nick sees them and describes them, which is why his protagonist role is very important in the way in which the story is told throughout the novel. Also from Nick’s narrative, in chapter 1we see that unlike Nick, Tom is very arrogant and dishonest at the dinner party, advancing racist comments, and also having public affairs. We get the impression that Daisy is very emotional and tries to appear “shallow” as she says that she hopes her baby daughter will be fool, because “that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful fool.” This is said because of the unattractive reality in the East Egg that Daisy’s husband, Tom Buchanan, is having an affair. In the final part of chapter 1, as Nick arrives home from the dinner party he sees Gatsby for the first time, reaching out at a distant green light at the end of a dock. At this moment in the story, Nick does not know the significance of this green light and what it represents, which gives Nick another reason to be intrigued by Gatsby, as well as his source of
Miller shows the duller side of the American dream and what that revolves around whereas Fitzgerald begins with a very grand opening with a lot of class and money surrounding the characters, although like Willy Loman, their lives are very confused. The use of ‘Death of a Salesman’ being a play, it shows the emotions and facial expressions which would be greater to see in ‘The Great Gatsby’ as Daisy is putting on an act like Linda is but with Linda it is very clear. We only know Daisy is in discomfort from the view point of Nick Carraway and his writing in the past. He knows what happened between herself and Gatsby so his outlook on how she addressed the situation of Tom getting a call could be
