But he had been deceived by such act. Lies and hypocrisy prevailed over truth. This was the outcome of my ignorance, of not seeing the underlying scheme of Abigail. Respect and power I deserve not. But persecution and damnation is what I deserve.
They felt pressured by everyone, though, and there was a little misinterpretation, but they agreed they would rather die than be apart. Had nothing else to live for *solemnly* Balthasar: I’m afraid I convinced poor Romeo that Lady Juliet had kicked the bucket. Now it makes sense why he wanted those pills…. Ops Friar: See!?!?! Capulets: Now all our fighting seems silly.
Firstly, Deception is a major theme within the play. Despite Richard’s physical deformity he was still charismatic and could effectively play with people’s emotions. Richard, after killing Anne’s husband seeks to gain her hand in marriage but was cursed by her saying "Never hung poison on a fouler toad. Out of my sight! Thou dost infect mine eyes.” In spite of her obvious dislike towards him, he successfully wins her over by falsely proclaiming his love for her saying “Your beauty was the cause of that effect; Your beauty: which did haunt me in my sleep.” The diction used in this scene highlights Richard’s deceiving skills.
“… How I wish I might see him and his bride in utter ruin, house and all, for the wrongs they dare inflict on me who never did them harm!” (55) Medea resolves to avenge her self and make her husband Jason suffer more then she has in order to punish him. While Medea speaks to the Chorus of the role of women in their society and their great disadvantages she is seen as a heroine willing to avenge the wrongs done to women, which is a rarity during the given time period “Of all creatures that have life and reason we women are the most miserable of specimens! In the first place, at great expense we must buy a husband, taking a master to play the tyrant with our bodies…” (56) Medea is undoubtedly a feminist which emphasizes her strong and independent character. Her tendency to violence and ruthlessness however is evident at the start of the play when the nurse is prompted to predict that Medea may do harm to Jason’s new bride out of jealousy and harm her children because they remind her of Jason “I’ve already seen her glaring at them like a bull, as if she wanted to do something awful. I’m sure of one thing, that anger of hers won’t die down until someone’s felt the force of her thunderbolt.
He purposely uses powerful adjectives in his phrases, such as “burnt her inside out” and “she was in great agony”; the word “agony” is emotive because it suggests an extremely unbearable pain. Sheila responds “miserably” which illustrates that she has been saddened by the news the Inspector had announced. However, this has an impact on Sheila but Mr and Mrs Birling, who are set in their ignorant time frame of mind, fail to see this. Their callous attitude prevents them from accepting any blame or responsibility for their own actions, and they fail to recognise that all actions have consequences. Their social class is also revealed when they are talking about Eva Smith.
Although she lived with her present husband, she still remembered every word in the letter which she thought she received from him.” I know it by heart now.” Mrs. Slade, who laughed to herself all that evening when her murder plot undergoes, is embodiment of hypocrisies and cruelty. In a short amount of time by very concise dialogue, the writer constructed successfully a jealous, cruel character, Mrs. Slade. Knowing her close friend fell in love with her fiance’, she hatched a murder plot up to get her rival out of the way. No one can image that when her furtive evil plan
Examining this, historians would note accounts of him being highly suspicious aswell as deeply paranoid; ultimately Stalin felt that he could trust nobody and his wife’s suicide worsened this considerably. These particular predicates would lead to explanations for why his former comrades were killed, compared to the considerably less violent means (exile) used by Lenin. His nature as brutal was also regarded as a significant feature of his personality, known to be vengeful and cruel; his fascination for violence (with the purges being an explicit display of such) still remains today a popular association with Stalin. Keen to assert himself as something other than the “grey blur”, Stalin idolized himself as a genius who transformed Russia into a communist utopia and at the forefront of revolution; denunciating Marx, Engels and Lenin in the process. Stalin was keen to destroy intellectuals and members of the old Bolshevik party, those who could see through his deceit and understood his limited abilities that strove for incredulous ambitions.
Amir | Because the truth of it was, I always felt like Baba hated me a little. And why not? After all, I had killed his beloved wife, his beautiful princess, hadn’t I? The least I could have done was to have had the decency to have turned out a little more like him. But I hadn’t turned out like him.
Nora Helmer is the very epitome of a reprobate in Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House. Nora is unique in that her one outstanding métier is also her most destructive shortcoming. This quality is lying, something Nora is more than adept at (though she seems to have a knack for irony as well.) The first word Nora speaks is "hide," which sums up her character absolutely perfectly; she lies to everyone about everything. She lies to her husband, she lies to her best friend, and she lies to herself.
In the poem “Medusa” gender conflict through control is also illustrated when she says: “a suspicion, a doubt, a jealousy”. This depicts that she feels ownership over her husband and wants him to “be terrified” if he does not obey her commands. However, in “Les Grands Seigneurs” the narrator conveys that after she was “wedded, bedded … a toy, a plaything … wife” she is nostalgic for the first three stanzas to how men were towards her before she was married as she is now powerless. We can depict that there was less gender conflict before she was married. Moreover, in “Medusa” powerlessness is also portrayed when she rhetorically questions herself “Wasn’t I beautiful?
