Many of them dislike him through jealousy; only a handful detests him fearing that he will be a tyrant. To assess Caesar’s personality in a correct perspective, it is necessary to keep this background in mind. In the unfolding events of the tragedy, we can see the various elements of Caesar’s character, ranging from his love to his wife and friends to his boastful vanity and arrogance which ultimately pave the way for his own end. Caesar disliked Contemplation of the sequence of events, as unfolding in the play, may be a decent approach for this evaluation. In the opening scene, workers come out on the streets, without going for work, to see Caesar returning to Rome in triumph over Pompey.
Shakespeare's play Othello and Good Will Hunting directed by Gus Van Sant are two such texts, exploring the human condition through the archetypal idea. In Othello, we see a black man driven to mad jealousy, and the demise of his world as a result. In Van Sant's film Good Will Hunting, we explore an intelligent man struggling with issues of his own. In both texts, the complexities of love and trust, and segregation are explored through the outsider archetype. Shakespeare's England was not a very accepting society when it came to foreigners.
For example, Tom tells Mr. Wilson about the incident that happens with Myrtle, and that Gatsby was responsible for it. This caused Mr. Wilson to fill with anger, and lead him to kill Jay Gatsby, and commit suicide. From these two situations, we see two contrasting consequences from one similar emotion. Jay Gatsby’s jealousy motivates him to pursue his true love, while Tom’s jealousy leads to the death of multiple characters. In conclusion, it is extremely transparent that Tom is a more corrupt character compared to Jay Gatsby.
The Negative Affects To Impulsive Behaviors In Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, Leonato’s quick judgments result in a great deal of unnecessary confusion and turmoil. Leonato’s impulsive disposition gets him into many predicaments over the course of the play. Unfortunately, individuals who rush to conclusions often make flawed decisions and do not think about the awful consequences that follow their premature actions. Leonato’s erroneous habit of making false accusations gets him into trouble when he believes that Don Pedro wants to woo Hero, he dismisses Dogberry, and he assumes Hero’s guilt and feels as though she should die for her costly sin. Out of excitement, the beginnings of Leonato’s hasty actions are first exhibited in Act I, Scene II, when Leonato suspects that Don Pedro will be wooing Hero for himself, when in actuality, he will be wooing her in the name of Claudio Once Antonio informs him of this news, Leonato immediately jumps to conclusions and calls his men to seize Hero and inform her of the miraculous news he has to share with her.
The accumulation of questions “How did she call him” and “When did you compact with the devil” reveal the instability of her belonging to the group as the interrogative pronouns “when” and “how” are assuming without question that she contacted the devil. This demonstrates how a lack of understanding of the truth prevents belonging. Increased understanding of the character of George Harvey, from the lovely bones, would ensure that prejudgements of characters would not prevent belonging. To one lacking understanding, George Harvey is “nothing remarkable” thus is able to shift the blame for Susie’s murder onto another. The boy was “certainly tweaked at an angle” and thus is expected to be violent.
The monster acts with extreme selfishness and from that comes unethical behaviour and actions. After not getting what he wanted, he promises to destroy Victor’s life and threatens him, by saying “I go; but remember, I shall be with you on your wedding-night" (137). The monster decides to unrightfully take revenge on Victor. The monster is so self-centred that it is incapable of acting ethical, and that its actions are solely to achieve its horrific goal. The above quote also ties in with one of the themes of the book, which is monstrosity.
Even though Romeo is very in love with Juliet, and one may believe that these lovers will live happily every after, it is Romeo’s impulsiveness that leads to the demise of himself and of his beloved Juliet. Impulse #1: Romeo is quite brash in his decision to slay Tybalt. If Romeo considered the consequences of murdering his enemy, he could have prevented his banishment from Verona. Romeo fails to consider that there is no need to slay Tybalt because Tybalt is already headed for assassination due to the fact that he murdered Mecrutio. Unfortunately, his impulsiveness overpowers him and Romeo fights Tybalt.
Moaraj will be proving that his superstition was the cause of Macbeth’s lust for power, and I will be proving that his greed was the main cause for the terrible deeds that had transpired. Women were not considered the same level in society (Elizabethan order) as men and were objects of the men would not have had much of an influence on men. Macbeth used Lady Macbeth for her innocence and he kept her out of his plans to murder Banquo and to murder Macduff’s family. This shows that Macbeth acted out
The Flaw of Cowardice Mai Tran Mr. Cassidy ENG3U-05 June 13, 2012 No matter how decisive or strong-willed one can be, there will always be a voice within that questions any action taken, and bring a sense of insecurity. Although the characters of William Shakespeare's Macbeth are all different and driven by their own motives, their biggest downfall is their cowardice. The subject of cowardice pervades Macbeth's decision making and acts of murder, as well as Lady Macbeth's greedy actions throughout the play. Fear, confusion and notable cowardice impel Macbeth's decisions, rather than "vaulting ambition" (1.7.27). His "dearest partner in greatness" (1.5.10), Lady Macbeth, arranges Duncan's assassination for their rise to sovereignty.
