Beatty asserts that people are not born equal, but are made equal through laws and regulation. In the current system, people are less likely to offend each other, and that everyone is better off. During the visitation of Beatty to the Montags, Millie is nervous fidgeting and organizing the bedroom. At one point she tries to fluff Montag's pillow, because Guy has hidden a book underneath the pillow. He pushes her away so she does not make a scene and Millie insists and places her hand under the pillow.
From the perspective we watch them through the viewpoint of a play which allows us to make our own opinions of the characters. Tennessee Williams exhibits how in out of place Blanche is in their house with nobody siding with her, especially her own sister who chooses her partner over her sister, triggering the audience to feel pity for Blanche. Throughout the scene Stanley is messing with Blanche while Blanche is frantically trying to avoid him, "I warn you, don't, I'm in danger!" The panic in her voice could be that she is aware of what is
He warns George and Lennie about her, despite the fact that they haven’t met her yet. This is significant as the structure of the novel means that our views are already prejudiced before we even see Curley’s wife. I think that Steinbeck has done this to show how easy it is to prejudge by listening to others, and that this might mean you don’t give people a chance-like what happens to Curley’s wife. Candy uses the word ‘tart’ to describe her and makes her sound like an object by informing George about Candy’s glove and what he uses it for. George is immediately disgusted by this ‘that’s a dirty thing to tell around’ and we can already see a negative view of Curley’s wife forming in his mind.
Intentional Behaviour When a carer came to help Masie by making her bed, Masie was still in bed. The carer asked her politely to leave the bed so that she could get on with her duties and usually Masie complies, however today she bit her and began screaming at her to leave. This is intentional behaviour because Masie was not provoked and she was not hit first. She intended on hurting her carer. Aggressive Behaviour Emily was asked by David to help him get up from the chair and as she went to hold his hand and support him by placing her hand on his back, he pushed her back towards the wall and began acting aggressively by smashing his ornaments on the floor.
Mentioning where an individual sleeps conveys their innocence when an individual sleeps they are no longer in control and their mind takes over, they are innocent of their actions. Shakespeare demonstrates that when an individual destroys family ties they also damage innocence, the Secret Life of Bees mirrors the sense of familiar betrayal. Bythewood demonstrates the human need of an individual to have a connection beyond memory, this is conveyed through Lily speaking to her mother in heaven, "bet my hair must have annoyed you when it went off in 11 different directions." The use of speaking to her mother through her religion demonstrate her purity and innocence. T-Ray, Lily's father betrays her through lies, "god damn woman didn't give a shit about you".
Romeo is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet, therefore, they are forbidden to fall in love. Friar Lawrence married them in secrecy. Romeo killed Tybalt, and in result he was banished to Mantua by the Prince. When he was banished, Juliet’s father was making her marry Paris. She ran to Friar Lawrence for help and the friar gave her distilling liquor so that she can fake her death.
It is rumoured that Othello has slept with Emilia “he’s done my office”. The offence not being the emotional betrayal that modern society would take from an affair but rather the seizure of his property. By using the term “office” and also saying in another part of the play “leapt into my seat” he commodifies Emilia just as Othello and Brabantio do to Emilia. Also, Emilia by obtaining the handkerchief is useful to Iago but in the grand scheme of things is secondary to his grand schemes. Evidenced by the contempt he shows for her throughout the
Hulga over hears much of this conversation and tells her mother to “get rid of the salt of the earth.” (p.465) Hulga is suspicious of Manly, yet Mrs. Hopewell can only think about possibility of the yong man being a positive influence on her daughter. After ignoring him a dinner, Hulga waits for manly to walk him down the path. This seems totally out of character for Hulga. As Hulga lays in bed she fantasizes about seducing manly and enlightening of her view of reality. It is obvious that Hulga sees Manly as naïve to the the ways of the world.
Her hallucination of the blood on her hands and her constant efforts to wash it off shows the suffering of having a guilty conscience, which is causing her to go insane. We later find out that she commits suicide due to it. The purpose of blood changes for the last time to a symbol of freedom when Macduff says, "I have no words: / My voice is in my sword, thou bloodier villain / Than terms can give thee out!" (Act 5, Scene 8, Lines 9-10) and then goes on to slay Macbeth. After analyzing all the different uses of blood throughout the book you can see how Shakespeare uses “blood” to show the change and transformation of characters.
Also, Abby accuses Mrs. Proctor of witchcraft for her own self-interest. She wanted Mrs. Proctor to be killed so she could have Mr. Proctor to herself. Lastly, Arthur Miller underscores the magnitude of personal indiscretion in influencing social upheaval. During the witch trials, people were afraid of their own sins being exposed and they tried anything they could to keep it a secret. John Proctor tried to keep his affair with Abigail from the court as long as possible until he pretty much had to break down and confess it.
