These poems are all written by the poet Wilfred Owen. I’m comparing the speeches and poems to give the different views on what people thought about war. In Henry V speech Saint Crispin’s day Henry V speaks a lot of glory, honour and brotherhood. All these ideas can inspire even the most despairing and oppressed men. This speech is very powerful and when someone is feeling unmotivated and depressed it has the ability to stir you to focus.
Because of this, the audience believes that he killed the ambitious Caesar because he cares and loves the people of Rome. Antony was able to attack this ethos-driven speech. He starts by saying, “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears. I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.” By saying so, he is presenting to the people that he is a friend. Saying that he wasn’t praising Caesar also appeals to the audience because right now, they are hating Caesar.
Miller does this to create suspense in the audience’s mind and informs us of the tragedy. We know this because in the opening chorus, Alfieri says “watch it run its bloody course” Miller uses these particular words to create more anxiety on how it is a tragedy. By using the word “bloody” Miller creates the suspense of someone’s death or murder and fits in with the notion of a tragic hero. The first act shows us the type of man Eddie is; Miller presents us with the image of a respected man, hard working and loves his family “he worked on the piers when there was work, he brought home his pay, and he lived.”. Miller uses Alfieri to
Pride and Love are both driving elements in James Hurst’s story, “The Scarlet Ibis.” They direct the story, very similarly, as to how they direct human life. In Hurst’s story, he explains how pride is a wonderful thing, but also a horrible thing. He also explores the extraordinary emotion of love. Doodle’s brother greatly exemplifies both pride and love throughout the story. Through love, he is accepting and compassionate, but the narrator’s love for Doodle is hindered by pride and the cruelty that derives from it.
Tybalt clearly is motivated by self-interest because he mainly thinks about defending his pride, and thus, has the urge to kill Romeo at a party without thinking about the disgracing the Capulet name. The next day when Tybalt confronts Romeo, he accuses Romeo of being “a villain” and fiercely demands that Romeo “turn and draw” because he is unwilling to “excuse the injuries [Romeo] hast done to him”(Shakespeare III. i. 62,67-68). Tybalt challenges Romeo to a duel to regain his pride and therefore shows self-interest because he blinded by rage and his thirst for revenge.
Also, John Proctor is surprisingly sensitive and thoughtful. When he asks his wife if she is saddened he displays concern for her well-being. He wants nothing more than for his dear wife to feel loved and he is willing to do whatever it takes to make her feel that way. He always spoke good about his wife. For example, when Elizabeth was accused of witchcraft, John said, “My wife cannot lie, I have paid much to learn it sir.” (p.111) John Proctor's major flaw was his great pride in his name.
Kumalo also shows the power of love when others are in pain. When Absalom is facing and "is afraid of death", Kumalo comforts him with a "deep compassion" that was "within him", demonstrating once again the force of love (241). Since he had previously spoken "bitterly" and "harshly" of his son, this situation also shows Kumalo overcoming his own fear and anger with his love for Absalom. Immediately after hearing the news of
The affair is ambiguous because of the reader’s moral and emotional confusion caused by the duty felt towards love and responsibility. Through the novel, it is proven that Dimmsdale and Hester do love each other, and the passion they felt during the affair lives on through Pearl. On the morality side, both had responsibilities to something other than each other that created guilt in what they were doing. Hester had a husband, even though he had been gone for a long time and she didn’t love him. While Dimmsdale had his congregation and duty to God to follow His word.
On line 2 Benvolio says ‘The day is hot’ that gives the sense foreboding. Mercutio fights Tybalt as he is trying to hurt his best friend and Romeo declined the duel. Romeo steps between them and Tybalt strikes Mercutio under Romeo’s arm. ‘A plague a’both your houses!’ Mercutio repeats this three times in this scene to get the message across he is blaming both Romeo and Tybalt for his death. Mercutio responsibilities Romeo for Tybalt killing him ‘I was hurt under your arm’ Romeo feels guilty about Mercutio’s death even though the audience know it is not his fault.
In “A Sorrowful Woman” I found it appealing of the lengths that the husband took to nurture his wife the passage that states “With great care he rearranged his life.” (41) shows his dedication to her and making sure she had what she wanted. While it was appealing to see his love for her, it also did not appeal to me to see that instead of trying to get her help she needed, he just placated to her depression until it overtook her. 3. The two women’s attitudes toward family life differ because while Faye is upset because she does not have a child and desperately want to give one to Kai, Godwin’s unnamed wife is upset and desperately trying to escape from the child and husband and life as a mother she already has. The problem for Faye is being able to realize that she
