He is blind to the fact that his success in the past and present has brought about envy from those who truly care about him. Charlie’s transformation is centered on whether or not he can escape his past life. Charlie is still trying to reconcile with the demons from his past. He truly loves his daughter, Honoria, and would do anything for her, but he is not ready for parenthood and the responsibility that comes with it. Charlie would replace himself with a governess because he believes that his business job will not allow him time to raise a child.
Both Auden and Watson effectively form representations and perspectives through the implementation of techniques within their texts. Auden actively uses poetic techniques to display his own negative perspective regarding the power of dictators in "Epitaph of a Tyrant". Auden immediately creates an ambiguous environment as the first line states how dictators are after "perfection, of a kind". The slight pause after perfection satirises its positive connotation casting doubt upon the reader questioning what type of perfection that the dictators wanted. In addition, Auden further demonstrates his negative perspective through the comment on the amount of knowledge the dictators know; "[Dictators] knew human folly like the back of [their] hand".
It puts people of the country at risk when the government is so open and willing to go to war. One thing that is good with Machiavelli’s government is the idea that, “it is better to be feared than loved”. If a leader is just loved that is good but the people will not follow him, which means there is no government at all. A leader who is feared may not be the people’s favorite but at least he will have his orders followed. Lao-Tzu and Machiavelli have two very different views on government, but Lao-Tzu’s method is the superior
However, the film’s 20th century context of capitalist greed and mass industrialisation shifts the criticism to the pursuit of commercial dominance and not god like power. Composed during the Industrial Revolution and the enlightenment period, Shelley symbolises the Romantic Movement as she forebodes her enlightened society of playing God. Her warning is shown through the character of Victor, whose pompous diction “many excellent natures would owe their being to me” represents a society focused on reanimation. Shelley questions the morality of this society through the pursuit of god like reanimation and through religiously and morally condemned methods of using dead body parts as materials. Through Victor’s retrospection to Robert Walton, “lost all soul or sensation but for this one pursuit”, with juxtaposition of “all” and “one” emphasis of Victor’s obsession to conquer death is made; similar to scientists of Shelly’s time such as Erasmus Darwin.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.”- Jim Rhon. A good leader should allow there people to be secure, and allow the people to grow financially, and he/she should be able to represent there peoples values. Philip II didn’t do any of that. Philip was a murderous oppressor, who acquired large debts from his military actions, and imposed high taxes on his citizens which evidently led to his ultimate failure. Philip is called close minded and said to be selfish with his money.
Gwendolen wants to marry a man called Ernest, not caring whether he possesses the qualities that comprise earnestness. This is evident as Gwendolen quickly forgives Jack’s deception and Lady Bracknell quickly forgets her earlier disapproval of Jack’s suitability for Gwendolen. Jack, the central character, is initially neither ‘Ernest’ nor ‘earnest’. Through forces at times beyond his control, he becomes both: a symbol of Victorian hypocrisy. Both Jack and Algernon lead a double life, known as ‘Bunburying’, the practice of creating an elaborate deception so as to misbehave whilst maintaining expected social standards of duty and responsibility, essentially, pretending to be earnest.
INTRODUCTION: to come.. Shakespeare’s character Othello is used as a symbol of the human psyche, representing the conflict between the binary oppositions of civility and barbarism. At the opening of the play, the forces of civilisation and order are represented by Othello. He acts as an agent of order, evident when he exclaims “For Christian shame, put by this barbarous brawl”; and “hold your hands” in reaction to a series of abusive comments made regarding him. The rationality evident in his civil approach is contradictory of what these barbaric arguments accuse him to be. Freudian superego-like qualities of order and calmness are evident in him, conflicting with the superego qualities of barbarism.
Shakespeare manipulates our response to Richard by implying in the text that he poisoned his wife Anne in order to gain a political marriage to his niece, Elizabeth of York. He is a master of dissembling and a man undeniably without charm, regardless his physical deformity. Finally, he possesses a sense of irony and a sardonic wit, which extensively explains his connection with audiences and readers. Shakespeare’s use of soliloquies enables us to see Richard’s duplicitous nature. He masterfully manipulates our response into having a grudging admiration for his skilful use of language.
Both Jack and Algernon are admired by two young ladies who mistakenly believe the men's names to be Ernest, and who adore the men for this very reason. In relating the story of mix-ups and mistaken identities, the ideals and manners of the Victorian society are satirized in a comedy where the characters "treat all the trivial things of life seriously and all the serious things of life with sincere and studied triviality" (Wilde back cover), in the words of the author himself. Oscar Wilde’s comical scenes often take their source in social satire and non-conformism (Baselga 15). Throughout his play, In The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde satirizes education, women, and morality. Oscar Wilde satirizes the British education by using Lady Bracknell.
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. If rulers were to act the way he says, they would feel the everlasting aching of loneliness. The leaders would also become known for being unloved and dictating. If somebody becomes overly controlling they will lose all respect
