The direction for the lighting to be ‘pink and intimate’ before the inspector arrives, then ‘bright and harsh’ when he is there helps the shift of tone, as each family member feels like a spotlight has been turned on them when he begins asking questions. In the opening scene, Mr Birling says many long speeches. Many of these are predictions for the future. As the play was written in 1946 but set in 1912, many of his predictions are proved false, a sense of dramatic irony. This manages to show him as a naive, opinionated person in his views.
241-243). Do quips, taunts and harsh written words stop a man from getting what he wants? Of course not! By the use of “paper bullets of the brain” we create an image words shooting like bullets, mercilessly teasing him but it still will not keep him from changing his mind about marriage. Shakespeare uses diction and imagery to oversee the transformation in Benedick as defends his former hatred towards marriage by deciding that people can change overtime.
This builds anticipation, as we are eager to find out what will happen in each family members interview and how it will affect the inspector’s final actions. Also the one-by-one interrogation makes the final speech all the more effective as it relates to each of his interviews. In regards to Mr. Birling’s language, if we had not thought of him as a greedy, arrogant man before, thanks to Priestley’s sophisticated writing it becomes blatant in Act III. Priestly leaves the reader to discover Birling’s narcissistic character by not actually describing it in so many words. Through his conversations with his family and his actions (stage directions), we see his true personality, which is one that longs for wealth and reputation.
In addition to the confusion surrounding the note Lady Chiltern originally sent to Lord Goring, that Mrs. Cheveley then forwarded in malice to Sir Robert, and that finally unites Sir Robert and Gertrude, there are a variety of stolen conversations and entrances and exits that allow every aspect of the character's lives to find resolution. Clearly, the letter is a very important tool. It represents Lady Chiltern's love for her husband. Originally, she wrote that she needed and wanted Lord Goring, but only so she could speak with him about her troubled marriage, to which she held so dear. Re-sent to Sir Robert, the letter takes on new meaning, and with Lady Chiltern's revelation that she has in fact held her husband on too high of a pedestal, the statements inscribed in it apply directly to him.
Macbeth then begins to ponder the power of fate. However at the same time, Banquo understands the role that free will plays when he quotes I. iii. 158-160 “New honors came upon him,/ Like ouir strange garments, cleave not/ to their mold/ But with the aid of use.” I. ii. 8-12 “And fortune, on his damned quarrel smiling/ Showed like a rebel’s whore, but all’s too weak:/ For brave Macbeth-- well he deserves that name--/ Disdaining fortune, with his brandished steel,/ Which smoked with bloody executions,” A bleeding captain returns from the battlefield and describes to Duncan and Malcolm the victory of Macbeth
This was the same time period in which he had penned many of his successful tragedies including Othello, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, and King Lear. Many believe that Shakespeare’s one and only son Hamnet Shakespeare’s death in 1596 was the source of his non-stop series of tragedies, but no one knows for sure. To recognize Shakespeare’s exceptional skill of targeting his audience, this essay will focus on the specific soliloquy in Hamlet found in act four, scene four. This final soliloquy commonly known as “How all occasions do inform against me,” can be found from lines 35 to 68 in the specified act and scene. Shakespeare wrote from what he knew, and what he knew came from where he lived and what he witnessed.
The Dynamic Huck Finn In the novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, author Mark Twain portrays the main character, Huck Finn, as a dynamic character when Huck reveals the scam to Mary Jane, is unable to pray so that he can turn Jim in, and whether to send a letter to Miss Watson about Jim’s whereabouts proving that Huck’s morals change throughout the novel and he becomes a better person through these changes.

Even though he helped them be with each other, he just caused more problems. Friar Lawrence first started this whole mess by agreeing to marry them. “By holy marriage. When and where and how / we met, we wooed, and made exchange of vow / I’ll tell thee as we pass, but this I pray / That thou consent to marry us today, (Romeo 2.3 lines 65-68) “ In one respect I’ll thy assistant be,” (Friar Lawrence 2.3 line 97) Here Romeo and Friar Lawrence are discussing how Romeo wants Friar Lawrence to marry him and Juliet. Friar Lawrence know they are from two different feuding families.
77-79). Fortinbras, on the other hand waits patiently until King Hamlet dies before sending an army of men to reclaim the land, therefore avoiding confrontation between the two. When Hamlet sees the army of men headed for Denmark, he compares himself to Prince Fortinbras, stating that he is “thinking too precisely on th’event-/A thought which quartered, hath but one part wisdom/And ever three parts coward” (Shakespeare. IV. iv.
“Do not give way to pride. For brief while your strength is in bloom but it fades quickly,”( lines 1761-1763). Here Hrothgar is using this to reflect his previous statement in lines 1743-1746 but only here he's also adding to it for Beowulf to know when that time is. Hrothgar believes that Beowulf will become king, he loves Beowulf as his own son and wants him to leave them with more than treasure, but with advice that will help him become an even better rule. In part of the book it does leave you wondering how Beowulf will take the crown of the
