Along with the frequent use of rhyming couplets and enjambment, this makes it clear that the Duke was a suspicious and dominant man to his dead wife and also shows his control. The first evidence in the poem to support this is “Will’t please you sit and look at her?” and also “Sir, twas not her husband’s presence only, called that spot of joy into the Duchess’ cheek!” Both are said in reference to his wife to the Count’s envoy. These are effective as we are presented with the subjective viewpoint of the Duke. Like Shakespeare, Browning wrote plays as well as poetry which is evident as we see how he combined the techniques of play writing and poetry. Again, as the Duke talks about the Duchess
He has decided that he already has blood on his hands he should just keep killing and getting what he desires, which now is to secure his hierarchy position. Macbeth’s killings were justified in his mind, but soon enough his sheer ambition would turn into mindless killing to soothe his desire of saving the crown which he worked hard to
Montresor tells the reader how he is to execute his plan. As expected Montresor does carry out his plan, and is executed perfectly. Montresor accomplishes his revenge on Fortunato because of this he is vindictive, grim, and gasconade. Montersor is the type of man that you might call vengeful. “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge “(1).
Luckily, you and I are hunters.” This quote shows that Rainsford thinks that violence is perfectly fine when hunting animals and Zaroff would agree with the quote as well. Why do you think Rainsford chooses to confront Zaroff at the end, instead of ambush him? 7a: I think he does this to rub it in to Zaroff because Zaroff was so sure that he would win the game because he wins every game he faces. Also Rainsford wanted to show how terrible it is for humans to be killed and do it himself to show Zaroff that evil always comes back to haunt you. 8.How do time and place affect the actions of the
Creon often seems to be full of himself in this play. He made the choice not bury Polyneices because Creon saw him as a traitor. When Polyneices’ family heard of this they were enraged, especially his sister Antigone. Creon will not let a lower authority tell him what is right or not. He feels that his laws are above that of any other.
This was Jennie’s case she did not have any friends because they were all jealous of her (Cooney 104). She got depressed and could not take it anymore which led her to runaway (72). In order for not letting people affect us we need to have confidence in
Afterwards Brutus did feel terrible about killing his beloved friend as if anyone would. Brutus was trying to do the right thing and all he wanted was his people to be save and away from any harm of tyranny. Brutus being too trusting was a major downfall for
His previous wife’s actions leave him no choice but to kill her. But as he is telling the agent about his wife’s death he appears nervous and tense. The use of caesura suggests that he is unsure of what to say next. He could not understand of his wife’s love for natural, simple things and her kindness she displays towards others he treated it with disdain.

This is revealed when she says, “But Hindley hated him, and to say the truth I did the same”. This makes it clear that Heathcliff did not give off a good first impression. Furthermore, when discussing Earnshaw, Nelly says, “He took to Heathcliff strangely”. By saying “strangely”, it suggests that Nelly thinks very little of Heathcliff and is surprised that someone should actually like him. She also says that she couldn’t dote on Heathcliff and wonders why Mr Earnshaw admired him so much.
