I think that Antony is up to something. Antony tries to get the crowd to support him, by making Brutus look disloyal. I just knew that Antony couldn’t be trusted. Now we have killed him. I just hope that the other conspirators can see it my way.
Also it shows that the other girls as well as Marry Warren are scared of Abigail as they know that she is able to put the blame on anybody. Miller uses the power of fear to present Abigail as a powerful character as she uses it to control the other girls as they are frightened of her as she can get them killed. Miller uses the scene of the court room to emphasise this fear. The court room is a very powerful place and it is where people are judged to see if they are innocent or not. If they were innocent they would live and if they were found to be guilty they would be killed.
She will be the man here” (519). This quote explains Kreon’s irritation on Antigone. The very moment Antigone buries her be loving brother’s body Kreon wants to take action with killing her because she disobeyed his law also Antigone’s sister, Ismene, because Kreon believes she was part of it too. Kreon believes if he does not kill Antigone he will no longer be one of the best rulers that people will look up too. This quote is important because it explains how Kreon begins to commit hubris.
This quote “[…] Let either of you breathe a word and I will come to you in the black of some terrible night and I will bring a pointy reckoning that will shudder you.” Shows her desperation and truly violent mind while she tries to control the mistake she’s made, but to control this mistake she must control those around her who know of it. No one would dare to expose her if they feared so terribly, Abigail uses this to her advantage. At the end of the trials Abigail was beginning to be revealed by townspeople who found out that she was the main accuser. When she found out about this she decided to take all of Parris’ money, and run away from Salem with Tituba. This leaves the reader wondering, but can only assume what will happen to
The devices work together to convince the crowd that Caesar being the better and more legitimate ruler, has previously connected with the Romans in a proffessional ethical way as well as connecting with them an emotional way. Antony's use of red herring actually lights the light bulb for the crowd of Rome. The fact that he draws attention to the central issue of Brutus killing caesar and his death affecting Rome, brings the crowd
Electra fights with her mother, Clytemnestra, and her mother’s lover, Aegisthus, because she feels betrayed by them as they killed her father. When Electra and Orestes are finally reunited, they plot against their fathers killers, and finally kill them. The play has several themes, such as vengeance and deception which are extenuated by the heightened realism style of the play. In Electra’s introductory speech, I would emphasises her agony of her father’s death, as this is the main reason the character is vengeful. To fit with the heightened realism of the play, I would exaggerate the mental pain that the character is going through by associating some lines with physical pain, such as ‘But my mother, and her bed mate Aegisthus, Split open his head with a murderous axe’.
Families are full of love and hope but to annihilate that all is a complete act of putrid evil and hate. War gives illusional rights to these inhumane beings that these acts are a part of life which they aren’t. Natural death should be the cause of all these lives, not innocent murder. War is the reason these families blood has been spilt. After all these past events, the 1800’s wars, The Boer War, WWI, WWII and The Cold War, you’d think we’d all have learnt our lesson that war was destroying people, along with the world.
Rusty only agreed with certain things Woroniecki believed. However Woroniecki had a major influence on Andrea, she was capatovated by his ideas. He preached bad mothers who go to hell and raise children who will go to hell too. Those words resonated with Andrea. At the time she killed her children, she believed she was possessed and that the sign of Satan was marked on her scalp.
She may have felt guilty as she thought the norms would find out that she killed the man and then they would kill her. David and Petra are the ringleaders in the escape. “If we were to survive, we must keep our true self hidden…” When Petra was drowning, David and Rosalind heard her cries through their minds, which then made them fear more, as people were being suspicious as no-one else heard her. Then they had to fear Petra, as they realized her powers were much too strong for her and she was too young to fully understand it.
A mother says to her son “ If you want to accomplish something and make a name for yourself, destroy everything that others have built and massacre everyone that you have conquered….” b.
