Through multiple problems of which Creon has no control, one feels sympathy and fear for him. Creon rules Thebes as a strong king who lays down the law and sticks to it. Creon sends out a harsh, but unbiased edict. He declares that Eteocles’s body will be honored with a burial, but Polynices will be left to rot. Creon prevents the people in Thebes to bury Polynices by saying that anyone who tries to bury him will be sentenced to death.
The first rhetorical device O’Brien employs is imagery. He vividly explains how he believes his courage could be built up in a “reservoir” of courage. Although, when he receives his draft, instead of feeling courageous he feels “the blood go thick” behind his eyes because he cannot believe he is being drafted for war. O’Brien describes the “silent howl” in his head, which allows one to imagine the dread of being drafted to war. O’Brien believes that he is “too good, too smart, too compassionate, too everything” and should not be drafted to the war, especially the “wrong war.” The rage in his stomach “burned down to a smoldering self-pity.” O’Brien’s imagery allows the reader to enter the mind of someone who has just received a draft notice and imagine the thoughts that would be going through their head.
This makes Benedick want to right Hero because he wants Beatrice to love him. When Beatrice says this, she should turn away from Benedick, cry and perhaps cast a sly look towards Benedick to alert the audience that this is the start of her manipulation. Benedick should look as if he has just found the light at the end of a tunnel and show signs of hope and desperation. A few lines later, Benedick confesses his love for Beatrice by saying “I do love nothing in the world so well as you. Is not that strange?” At the end of this line, Benedick asks if it is strange for him to love because they have always had a friendly war of words between each other and due to the fact that they squabble frequently.
He says, “I am afraid to think what I have done; Look on't again I dare not.” This shows the regret and guilt that Macbeth has because of the people that were killed to make way for him to become king. He had originally thought that if he pushed though the initial problems that he had with his malfeasance, the reward of being the most powerful man in Scotland would outweigh other issues. In this scene he acknowledges that he was mistaken. Macbeth makes his most pronounced speech on his guilty conscience in Act 3 scene 4. Macbeth says “I am in blood Stepp'd in so far, that, should I wade no more, returning were as tedious as go o'er.” This is showing the audience how murder, blood and guilt are now embedded in Macbeth’s mind.
To begin, Macbeth is viewed as a brave and fearless man with very good military standing he is also viewed as a good leader. Macbeth is a good man at this point in the play but due to some prophecies that are made by, some crazy witches; he starts to betray his closest friends. Macbeth begins to plot against King Duncan, the man who just named him Thane of Cawdor. Macbeth realizes the costliness of killing the king and how his actions may damn him forever. Macbeth tells his wife, Lady Macbeth, That he cannot go through with it and she begins to question him, “When you durst do it, then you were a man; And, to be more than what you were, you would be so much more the man” (Shakespeare I.VII.
Macbeth’s ambitious nature was the catalyst for the deaths of many characters, including his own. At first, in order to gain absolute power, Macbeth performed regicide to become King and receive the top position on the ‘Great Chain of Being.’ However, it was found that he was afterwards plagued with insecurity, as he claimed, ‘To be thus is nothing, but to be safely thus.’ Macbeth would be unsatisfied until he had absolute security over his power. As Macbeth’s insecurity and fear of losing power grew, the degree of his violence amplified. It drove him to the murder of his own friend, Banquo, the murder of the Macduff family, which involved innocent women and children, and in the end, another civil war. In addition, Macbeth’s naivety was also responsible for the tragedies, and his own downfall.
| Body paragraphs (one paragraph per reason) | Three reasons why you feel that way and real-world examples or quotations for the text you will use as support: Reason 1: When Macbeth found out he had a chance at being king, he didn’t want to let anyone in his way. Support: First he killed the king, then Banquo. He started to regret it a little bit but Lady Macbeth reminded him of the power to come and he kept going. Reason 2: In the Second Coming, it starts with the speaker and his falcon. Support: The speaker states that the only people with any enthusiasm anymore are the powerful people.
In this way people the chances of people challenging Big Brother are lessened. • “To die hating them, that was freedom.” Book 3, Chapter IV Page 281. Winston detest Big Brother down to his inner core. To him, going against Big Brother was the ultimate liberty in life. If he were to die still hating Big Brother, it would make the statement of everything he had stood for in life and the sacrifices he had to make.
In the end there was a clever twist of finding out what “rosebud’ actually ment. The last image of the burning rosebud (what semed a chair) is an unforgetable mtion picture and left me with somewhat of a dissapointment and grief for Kane. It makes me believe that Kane just wanted a simplistic and calm life, but he couldn’t since he was always trying to prove himself something, maybe that he could love. The film ‘Citizen Kane’ is a powerful dramatic story about the uses and abuses of wealth and power. It shows how a man that has everything will never fullfil his life because as the saying goes ‘money cannot buy you happiness’ and that is exactly what the movie portrays.
Dimmesdale is on the scaffold giving a speech and then realizes that he can’t hold in his sin anymore. Guilt building up and Dimmesdale confessing kills him. The last chapter Dimmesdale is giving a speech and then starts saying that he is the father of Pearl and then he rips his shirt open to let everybody see what is on his chest. “‘Hester Prynne,’ cried he, with a piercing earnestness, ‘in the name of Him, so terrible and so merciful, who gives me grace, at this last moment, to do what—for my own heavy sin and miserable agony—I withheld myself from doing seven years ago, come hither now, and twine thy strength about me! Thy strength, Hester; but let it be guided by the will which God hath granted me!
