If Nolan was acting as a military assistant to a more senior officer, he wouldn’t be critical of its commanders as suggested in Source 3, because it would be in his role to follow orders. Source 1 also disagrees that Nolan was to blame for the disaster of the Charge of the Light Brigade because it says that the Light Brigade opposed his theories on tactics so he could never have suggested it. This shows that it would have been almost impossible for Nolan to make the decision as others were against his ideas. However, Source 3 disagrees as it says that Nolan wasn’t to blame because it says, ill-suited to deliver Raglan’s order for the charge, suggesting that it was not in Nolan’s characteristics to follow orders from anyone else. This means that even if it was his responsibility to deliver the order he would not have done so because, as it also states in Source 3, he is headstrong so he is self-willed, portraying that Nolan is to blame for the disaster of the Charge of the Light Brigade by refusing to follow orders.
As the source is also from a letter, it is unlikely the Duke of Suffolk would not have feared angering Wolsey as otherwise the letter would have been private. In comparison to this, Source 2 may not be very reliable either as Wolsey would not have wanted to upset Henry and so would make events seem a lot more positive than they may have been. It can also be suggested that as source 2 was written 2 years after source 1, Wolsey had failed to use his contacts efficiently which supports claims made in source 1. Despite all of this, Wolsey did
Impetuousness, if they had only waited then time would have kept them apart and alive. Society, for a conveniently vague concept which can encompass everything else. Pointing the finger of who is at fault is actually very easy, but it does not help us or anyone in the least. At the end of the play, we do not see any of the characters accusing each other. The message is understanding and forgiveness.
Marcus Aurelius once said, “Whosoever does wrong, wrongs himself…” Othello by William Shakespeare and A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams both illustrate the critical lens. Both authors use literary devices to convey the critical lens. Both authors use characterization and theme of deception in their literary works. The critical lens means that if a person does wrong or bad thing it will eventually affect them at the end. The quotation is true because when someone does wrong thing it comes back to them.
Thus it is shown that guilt can cause one to lose there inner conscience. Guilt in this play led Macbeth to live a life full of sorrow and regrets. It causes people around to suffer as well from guilt, as it can accumulate to the extent of death. Therefore Shakespeare has definitely demonstrated a success through Macbeth to demonstrate the true meaning of the causes of
He was ignoring his problem with the burial of Polyneices. As he was ignoring it, the problem grew. The audience can learn from this play it to be free of ignorance, arrogance, and pride. Ignorance is bliss, but it doesn’t last long enough. If people are aware from the start, there wouldn’t be a need to feel blissful.
He didn’t mean to kill her, but since Lennie does not understand certain things, he also does not know his own strength. In conclusion, Lennie should not be held responsible for killing Curley’s wife. He should not be accountable because Lennie is not all there and had no idea what he was doing. Another reason Lennie should not be blamed is because Curley’s wife forced him to touch him to touch her hair, and if she did not do that and start yelling at him, none of this would have
In the play the reader can figure out that Macbeth thought a lot of himself. Macbeth was a brave man who thought of himself and others but mostly of himself. The most dominant force of Macbeth’s downfall was the flaws in his own character. Macbeth’s character in the play was very stubborn. This play goes to show the flaws and attributes of Macbeth’s character.
Gatsby’s delusional emotions of love for Daisy kept him doing whatever it took to fulfill his inner desires. Similarly, Macbeth’s inner desires to achieve what was stated in the witches’ prophecy and his severe feelings of greed led to him taking many harsh and unreasonable actions. It was these inner desires and strong passions that motivated the main characters, but they also ultimately led to their long-term down falls. That is why both protagonists can be considered tragic heroes. Emotions can overpower people and convince them to act in a certain way and those same intense emotions may prove to be self destructive in the
After the examination Socrates concludes that the act of escape would be just and he would be morally unjustified and committing the act. The first argument that Crito presents to Socrates brings up the issue of what the majority think. Crito says, “Many people who do not know you or me very well will believe I might have saved you had I been willing to give money, but that I did not care to do so.” (Grude, Pg 47) Crito’s argument is clearly concerned with his own reputation, especially with what the majority
