Lennie expecting and eager for George to give him more hell does not get the answer he expects because George knows that he is about to end Lennies life. He wants to end Lennie’s life on a better not. The repetition of that phrase especially using that word enhances the mood of this scene because it creates the uneasy scary feeling that Steinbeck wants you to feel. Throughout the duration of this book its author John Steinbeck used dictation and repetition of phrases to enhance the mood of his novel. This book conveys a mood of sadness and hope at the same time; towards the end it conveys a fearful mood as Lennies life came to an end.
Iago explains to Othello that he does not like the way Cassio and Desdemona act around each other, how Cassio was looking at her when they were talking alone, or how Cassio acted “guilty” when Iago and Othello walked in on them talking. Iago tells Othello that Desdemona will plead Cassio’s case, because they are intimate. Desdemona does indeed plead Cassio’s case, but only because he asked her to. Iago knows that even if he didn’t immediately believe these accusations, Othello would at least want to look further into it, because Othello was much too prideful to be made a cuckold. After Iago instills the fear of Desdemona cheating on Othello, Othello actually begins to doubt himself, which is a perfect
Although his actions are very insane, they can be seen as rational to reader considering hedonism. Devotion to pleasure, hedonism, makes Dorian be deceitful about his true self by deflecting the attention of the public from the mad man to the beautiful and intelligent gentlemen. Dorian is, young, sensitive, and emotional, meaning that he is susceptible to manipulation. Lord Henry takes advantage of that opportunity and gives Dorian the yellow book; this book opens up the world of hedonism and aestheticism which eventually turns his young life into an eternal oblivion of misery. Dorian develops a fear of aging so he tries to live his life as if it was his last day on earth.
He’s remarkably cunning at how he gets where he wants to go. By being so good at being bad, we as readers find him enticing. Iago’s dream speech represents the epitome of Iago’s acrimonious villainy. At a point when Othello is willing to believe almost anything in reference to his wife’s alleged infidelity, Iago begins to lay it on thick. While having been careful to be proper in speech towards Othello thus far, this is the speech where he throws that credibility away.
Benedick’s desire to know what Beatrice truly thinks of him is a sign of the love he feels for her, yet has chosen to not yet acknowledge it, even to himself. Benedick disguises himself so that he can freely talk to Beatrice and her opinions about himself—knowing that if he were to ask her as himself normally, he would not receive an accurate answer. Unbeknownst to him however, Beatrice realizes who he is and continues the witty war, relishing in insulting him once again, “He is the prince’s jester, a very dull fool”. Benedick’s response to this is quite important, because Shakespeare again uses
Lord Henry’s obsession with Dorian leads Dorian to a life full of immoral activities such as drugs, meaningless sex, and the murder of famed artist and friend, Basil Hallward. Dorian explores these sensations as he looks to feel something real, but his entire life now revolves around his appearance and his state of self-denial. “Lord Henry Wotton is perfectly right. Youth is the only thing worth having. When I find that I am growing old, I shall kill myself,” (Wilde Chapter II) throughout the novel, Lord Henry influences Dorian’s decisions to be a pleasure seeker, to date only the elite, and to act in an high class manner.
More than these, I think Lear is motivated by his idea that he is a good man. One thing that supports is when Kent says “I’ll tell thee thou dost evil,” (Act I, Scene I, Line 175) and Shakespeare writes the king as reacting in a frenzy, going so far as to say “This moment is thy death,” (Act I, Scene I, Line 190). By portraying the king in this way, Shakespeare causes us to judge him as unstable and mental. While his actions thus far have been rash, him reacting in this way, and him banishing his daughter saying, “Here I disclaim all my paternal care, Propinquity and property of blood,” (Act I, Scene I, Lines 117-118). From these thing, it is made clear that Lear is not only rash and insecure but also thoughtless and stupid.
He is disappointed about how he acted, and he convinces himself to mend his mistake. However, Pip does not know at the time that he acts immorally, and he only finds out after reflecting on his poor actions. Clearly, through that passage, he wants to go back to clean up his arrogant acts so that he does not feel guilty about it. The cause of his stuck-up and immoral ways is his longing to enter the upper
Capulet insults Juliet by calling her a “tallow-face!” and “disobedient wretch!” Name calling is a very childish thing to do and here we see Capulet just throwing a tantrum because he is not getting his way. This shows that Capulet is not used to Juliet or anyone disobeying him, he is used to being in the spotlight where people treat him as royalty. However as soon as someone does not do what he says he goes mad and you can see this because he starts cursing his only child and he doesn’t care about how she might feel. This is very immature because he just carries on shouting at her and doesn’t even stop to actually question her motives because all he wants is for Juliet to change her mind. He is also cruel in his choice of insults as he calls her a “green-sickness carrion!” and he is trying to tell her that she’s no different than a pile of skeletons if she doesn’t marry
Iago manipulates Othello by making him suspicious through inference, “Ha I like not that”. Iago mutters this in act 3 scene 3 when he sees Desdemona and Cassio talking. Iago hints that he knows something making sure Othello can hear yet making it subtle enough to pretend that he didn’t want him to know. Iago then pretends to be reluctant to tell Othello about Desdemona, “Utter my thoughts! Why, say they are vile and false?” He tells Othello just enough to intrigue him; he does this by asking leading questions, “Did Micheal Cassio when you wooed my lady, know of your love?” Iago exasperates Othello by revealing so little, “I did not think he had been acquainted with her”.
