(Defiant attitude. )” (Akutagawa 31). In the end Tajomaru believes that although his fate is in the hands of the law he will prevail even in death by challenging the system. Like the bandit Robin Hood who became an English folk hero thru the belief that even men whom have done wrong can become clean through the resistance of corrupt men. Tajomaru also believes that Takehiro was a greedily corrupt man whom deserved death.
The Real Gertrude: A Recreative Exploration into the Characters Moral Ambiguities in Act 1 Scene 2 “Good Hamlet, cast thy nighted colour off, And let thine eye look like a friend on Denmark. Do not forever with thy vailed lids Seek for thy noble father in the dust. Thou know’st ‘tis common: all that lives must die, Passing through nature to eternity.” [Move to Centre Stage] What hast thou done? He acts as though he is much offended, And yet, should I not be also in grief? I am no fool to think all is well here, Denmark is falling to discord assur’d Thine husband sits too proud upon the throne ‘Tis true he is overly fond of drink, Yet he knows not the threat of Fortinbras Too caught up in his web of lies to care Perhaps, he is not spiderlike, instead Lying in wait like a trapp’d moth in shade.
One of the Puritan ladies in the crowd suggests that Hestor has “brought shame upon us all, and ought to die. Is there no law for it? Truly there is, both in scripture and statute book.” The Puritans wish further torture on Hestor, even though they themselves too have committed similar crimes. But in looking for a reason to bring more harm to Hestor, they break a commandment worse than Hestor’s; using the Lord’s name in vain. Just for their own satisfaction they look to manipulate the writings of their
Because I lie and I sign myself to lies! Because I am not worth the dust on the feet of them that hang! How may I live without my name? I have given you my soul, leave me my name!” Get as needed from script An Enemy of the People- -pg 26 said by Peter Stockmann to (the mayor) Tomas Stockmann (the doctor) “You have an ingrained tendency to go your own way” This quote reminds me of Proctor from The Crucible. -pg 32 “You can’t you’d have to be a heathen!” -pg 44 “old reputable names” used to describe bureaucrats.
Jest set still and take it like a man. I got to tell the truth, and you want to brace up, Miss Mary, because it’s a bad kind, and going to be hard to take, but there ain’t no help for it. These uncles of yourn ain’t no uncles at all- they’re a couples of frauds- regular dead-beats” (200). In the end of the book, in the scene when Jim gets captured, Twain’s statement is proven when Huck needs to make a decision whether or not he going to sell the letter to Ms Watson and whether or not to go get Jim back. “It was a close place.
Putting monster under higher security only proves to others, how dangerous he really is and adds glory to gang life. Authorities would be better off to treat Monster like any other criminal. By recognizing his name and reputation, he gains self-satisfaction. As well as identifying individuals, correctional system makes the mistake of identifying each gang. The Crips are forced to wear a different colored
It is the type of irony you notice almost as soon as you read it. The first example of verbal irony in Oedipus Rex Act _ Scene _ is when Oedipus demands that the evil man who murdered King Laius be cruelly punished without realizing that the man who murdered him is none other than himself. This is verbal irony because Oedipus does not realize that he has actually condemned himself. Another example of verbal irony is when Oedipus accuses Creon of framing him for the murder of Laius so that Creon would become king. Creon states that he is not interested in being king as he is contented with his present position of wealth and power.
I tell thee, shackles and the prison-house shall punish the next offence of this kind.'' Gurth, knowing his master's irritable temper, attempted no exculpation; but the Jester, who could presume upon Cedric's tolerance, by virtue of his privileges as a fool, replied for them both; ``In troth, uncle Cedric, you are neither wise nor reasonableremain, it will be light work for us to face twenty of those runagates.'' Rowena, somewhat alarmed by the mention of outlaws in force, and so near them, strongly seconded the proposal of her guardian. But Rebecca suddenly quitting her dejected posture, and making her way through the attendants to the palfrey of the Saxon lady, knelt down, and, after the Oriental fashion in addressing superiors, kissed the hem of Rowena's garment. Then rising, and throwing back her veil, she implored her in the great name of the God whom they both worshipped, and by that revelation of the Law upon Mount Sinai, in which they both believed, that she would have compassion upon them, and suffer them to go forward under their safeguard.
I did love you once. (III.i.111-115) Hamlet promised to marry Ophelia after he took her innocence. He then began to mistreat her and finally … left her. When Hamlet realizes Ophelia’s father caught him in a trap he becomes furious. In fact he becomes so angry that he tells Ophelia that he never loved her and that instead of marrying she should go to a nunnery rather then pass on her genes to children.
Hamlet shows Gertrude that she has lowered her standards by marrying Claudius, When he refers to old Hamlet as, “A combination and a form indeed / Where every god did seem to set his seal” (3.4.55-61). This quotation shows what Hamlet saw in his father and how bitterly disappointed he is in his mother’s choice of lord. Hamlet’s frustration is made bigger due to Claudius’ unsympathetic remarks. Earlier in the play, King Claudius comments on the irrationality of Hamlet’s grief by saying, “That thus hath put him/ So much from th’ understanding of himself, I cannot dream of.” (2.2.8-10) The intensity of Hamlet’s grief may encourage others besides Claudius to be prejudiced towards treating him as insane. In the wake of his father’s death, Hamlet takes actions that other characters perceive as insane.
