Shortly after, Banquo warns Macbeth of danger, explaining that the witches may not be trustworthy: And oftentimes, to win us to our harm, The instruments of darkness tell us truths, Win us with honest trifles, to betray's In deepest consequence. By the end of Act I, Banquo still relates to Macbeth as his friend. Banquo has noticed a strangeness in Macbeth's behavior, but assumes it is merely a reaction to the new honor (Thane of Cawdor) he has suddenly received. Macbeth and Banquo maintain their friendship into Act II, when Banquo mentions the witches. Macbeth lies, saying he never thinks of them, but tells Banquo that he would like to discuss them further.
He subjects the poor characters of his novel to every imaginable evil that man has been wont to commit in order to prove that this could not be the best of all worlds. Secondarily, Voltaire also seems to have other bones to pick. Hardly a paragraph is written that does not contain a sarcastic comment about or outright mockery of some person, idea, or institution. It is a credit to the skill of the author that he is able to present his criticisms with a humor that is as intoxicating as it is relentless and controversial. The sheer number of insults and implications made by the author coupled with a healthy sprinkling of aristocratic inside jokes would indicate that he essentially wrote this book for himself and other like-minded intellectuals of the enlightenment that disapproved of the status quo or could at least appreciate his cheeky sense of humor.
AP : In great literature, no scene of violence exists for its own sake response, A violent scene in the novel All The Pretty Horses persuaded the reader to believe that the situation controls the character’s actions based upon it. McCarthy’s novels are filled with ineluctable evil that creates the suspense violence in the novel. Even if the scene seem peaceful and just plain situation, McCarthy always find his way to make the setting seems dangerous or evil. People’s life, people’s story fiction or non fiction, there will always be a violence in it, it is what makes the people interested, or its how they keep the story going just like how McCarthy did in All the Pretty Horses. Before John Grady left his ranch, he wanted to fulfill
Mark Twain was and still is a literary idol for writers to always look up to, and the way he wrote he even became a political figure in America. To change his work without his permission, legal or not, is morally and ethically inappropriate. Carol Lucas said, “I think that if one is to edit Twain and omit what one might think is unacceptable, then one has to start in Shakespeare, the Roman and Greek comedies, most French and British comedies of the 18th and 19th centuries, and so on. Might as well rewrite all of history” (). Through this quote one can easily see how editing Twain’s masterpiece would be a queue for editors around the world to go and edit every inappropriate word of a dead writer’s work.
I’m almost glad this war came along. It’s like a test, isn’t it, and only the things and the people who’ve been evolving the right way survive,” ( pgs. 116-117) he is formulating his own metaphors about war that confuse Gene. Leper enjoys living freely, he prefers taking a path most choose to avoid. This way of thought is the sole cause of Leper’s inability to conform, which in turn jeopardises his stability when entering an environment where each and every action he takes is an order given by a higher power.
William Shakespeare establishes Benedick’s character by using diction and imagery to show his changed viewpoint on marriage. Benedick is strongly opinionated and rarely ever let’s his guard down when it comes to feelings or love. After he overhears that Beatrice is in love with him, he ponders what to do. The characterization is established through diction, “And wise, but for loving me; by my troth it is not addition to her wit, nor no great argument of her folly, for I will be horribly in love with her!” (II.3.235-237). He is saying that is might not be wise for loving him, but he swears it won’t be stupid for he is going to be “horribly” in love with her.
This is used in the previous scene when Romeo and Juliet marry in secret by Friar Lawrence. The language used in this scene is also very important and is linked to the character development of Romeo and Mercutio. Mercutio went from being a light-hearted comical person, 'one word with one of us"... Make it a word and a blow'. His attitude is the complete opposite once he is injured by Tybalt 'a plague a both houses'. Romeo went from being a very romantic soft-hearted person and not reacting from Tybalt's threats and pleading not to fight 'good Capulet, which name I tender as dearly as my own, be satisfied'.
We always make decisions without knowing the exact outcome of what we do, despite whether our intent is good or evil. In the play, Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, he develops the idea that an individual’s good intentions can have devastating results. This idea is developed through the characters Romeo, Friar Laurence, Juliet, and Mercutio. In the scene where Mercutio and Tybalt were fighting, Romeo intervenes and ends up losing Mercutio the match, costing his life. “I thought all for the best.”(Act 3, Scene 1, line 99) Romeo had the best intentions however; best intentions in Shakespeare’s plays always have a negative impact.
At the same time, in Macduff and in other figures in the play, Shakespeare shows us that guilt can be overcome when it is recognized as such. Plainly, neither Macbeth nor Lady Macbeth rises to this task. Macbeth attempts to substitute fear for guilt and to deal with it through action, while his wife acknowledges the unbearable effect of guilt she limits it into a deterrent, using the management of her husband's guilt as a means for diverting her attention away from her own sense of shame. Both of these courses prove damaging, and, at bottom, the depth of tragedy which Macbeth and Lady Macbeth undergo stems not from their terrible deeds alone, but from their inability to accept the guilt from their
Modern English...is full of bad habits...which can be avoided if one is willing to take the necessary trouble” (Orwell), which provides some hope for the future of this language. Orwell provides many excellent examples and further breaks down his ideas to explain and prove his thesis in an organized manner. Orwell then uses various pieces of work, written by others, as examples of incorrect uses of the English language to further prove his thesis. Professor Harold Laski writes, “I am not, indeed, sure whether it is not true to say that the Milton who once seemed not unlike a seventeenth-century Shelley had not become, out of an experience ever more bitter in each year, more alien [sic] to the founder of that Jesuit sect which nothing could induce him to tolerate” (Essay in Freedom of Expression). Orwell uses this excerpt as his first example but he states, “These five passages have not been picked out because they are especially bad” (Orwell).
