“THE thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge.” (Poe 1). The insult that hurt Montresor’s pride and drove him to revenge was not stated. His yearning for revenge was directly linked to his family motto, “Nemo me impune lacessit.”(Poe 5). which means no one attacks me with impunity. The motto made it obvious that Montresor’s ancestors had just as much pride as he does, therefore they would react to an attack in the same fashion.
. (Henry IV, Part 1, I.i.77-80) King Henry IV is stating that Hotspur represents honor; when honor speaks, it speaks of Hotspur. It makes him commit the sin of jealousy, because Hotspur is more honorable than his own son. This quote sets up Hotspur’s character, and foreshadows the contrast of him amongst the other characters in the play. Even though Hotspur gets a lot of glory from being a strong military leader [a trait that is valued very highly during his time], his attitude towards life is unbalanced because he identifies himself solely with his reputation of determination and honor.
I would present a man who displays every symptom of heroic stubbornness but who in the end is swayed by advice, makes major concession until his final collapse. He fails to live up to his principles and his great personality, which are nothing but a false persona. I would like to portray Creon as authoritative and prevailing in his first appearance with the chorus. Creon is giving a vital speech, a proclamation to the state involving the defiance of Polynices burial, he says, ‘the state, the fatherland, is everything to us, the ship we all sail in, if she sinks, we all drown.’ I would stand upstage left and slowly pace with a fierce persona, shoulders back, chin high, towards centre stage where I will be most dominant. I would speak articulately and in a low tone, pausing between every comma before taking a longer pause after saying ‘us.’ I would then look up to the skies triumphantly and quickly proclaim, ‘if she sinks,’ then pause, look regally across the audience before saying, ‘we all drown.’ I will not say this morbidly but with a warm, humbling tone to persuade the audience that this is a good thing to do.
In fact it would be odd for someone who lost power to not want it back. However, Prospero goes about getting his power back by means of revenge. This brings us to one of Peter Hulmes central topics of discussion. Hulme refers to Prospero’s play in specific, noting that it is a project. Directly speaking, to complete this project Prospero’s main objective requires, “A presentation that maneuvers Alonso physically and psychologically so that his son’s miraculous return from the dead will be so bound up with Ferdinand’s love for Miranda that Alonso will be in no position to oppose the Union” (Hulme 233).
Civil Law v. Divine Law Sophocles' play Antigone examines the age-old conflict between divine law and civil law, including the life-and-death consequences of obeying one system over the other. The title character of Antigone believes divine law is the only legitimate, binding system governing a person's actions and their consequences. Viewing the civil laws of Thebes as unjust, Antigone buries her brother's remains in direct defiance of Creon's edicts that forbid such actions. She is completely shameless for her disobedience, stating "I did it. I deny nothing."
Creon is courageous in nature and a citizen of Thebes who doesn’t even hesitate to question the king's impulsiveness. He stands up for himself and argues even against the king when he believes Oedipus is wrong. He values his integrity of character and his loyalty above everything else. Lastly, other important aspect of Creon's personality is revealed in the last scene of the final episode. He forgives Oedipus, the man who has censured
Instead of using a regular “okay”, Vernon inserts an “OK” to show her sarcastic anger towards one of her colleagues who disagrees with her opinion. You can tell she is immediately annoyed with peoples lack of respect of her opinion. With the emotion she is trying to get him to agree or even just compromise with the fact she wants nothing to do with having a child. By using such a strong emotion like anger she is adding passion to the argument; angry words like scold, attacks, selfless and deconstructed add fuel to the passage by giving the readers a feeling to have instead of just being neutral and it helps the readers gain an emotional tie and move over to “her side”. Having the readers believe she has a right to her own opinion right of the bat gives the author, Vernon, an upper-hand moving on to the rest of the article.

Machiavelli says it is better to be feared the loved. As for that statement, I strongly disagree. He does have means for saying that, but his morals are wrong. Machiavelli shows himself to be a person who does not understand the importance of love and acceptance, for him all that is important is power and conquering. First, he says “A prince should make himself feared in such a way that, though he does not gain he love, he escapes hatred.” Clearly, Machiavelli does not understand the importance of love and respect.
