To add salt into the injury Shylock’s daughter, Jessica elopes with Lorenzo who is Antonio’s friend and is converted into a Christian which heightens his rage (Gibbons 36). But what comes to mind are the questions that whether it was justified for his revenge for his right and the question of moral values as a human being. The character of Shylock is depicted as an outcast in the community of Venice which was part of Shakespeare to demonize Jews. Shylock is thought as a victim and villain, where as a victim he looses his right to practice his faith through Antonio’s order for him to practice Christian faith. He not only looses his faith but also his only daughter to a Christian lover.
The other couple, Nick and Honey, who are overshadowed by the boisterous relationship of George and Martha, have also built their marriage on an illusion even if they don’t realise it. Nick only married Honey as he thought she was pregnant and we are led to believe for money, not because of true love. By having all four characters involved in some illusion Albee built himself the perfect platform to explore the entitled theme. Similarly Williams’ ‘A Streetcar named Desire’, published in 1947, seems to be set in two worlds, a fantasy world, where the characters believe what they want to believe and the real world, where things aren’t as nice. The main character that illustrates this theme is that of Blanche, although it can be seen through other characters in play less prominently.
Whom I now keep in service” (Act 1.2 lines 283-286). If first impressions are everlasting, then our first impression of Caliban is Shakespeare’s way to impose a feeling of disdain on his audience toward Caliban. Caliban is also the son of a witch called Sycorax. During Shakespeare’s era, bloodline is a big determination of social status which would further coax his audience into believing that Calibans slavery is within social boundaries. “Thou poisonous slave, got by the devil himself,” (Act 1.2 line 319) this line is a direct stab at Caliban and his witch of a mother.

The one relationship that was affected severely by the fact that he is passion’s slave is the relationship between him and his mother, Gertrude. What triggers the immediate conflict between the two of them is the fact that almost immediately after the death of Hamlet Sr., she chose to marry his brother Claudius “But two months dead”; whom also turns out to be the killer of Hamlet Sr. It is a clear indication to the audience that Hamlet is not in agreement of this marriage; this in turn leads to conflict between them continuously through the play. “Now could I drink hot blood…Soft! Now to my mother.” “I will speak daggers to her but use none.” Hamlet uses daggers as a reference to the fact that he will speak his anger rather than physically hurting her.

Because she lived in such a God driven and puritan town, the judicial system of the settlement had decided for her to acknowledge her sin by embroidering a vibrant scarlet letter “A” onto her dress to symbolize adultery. She was often ostracized from the rest of the town since she was forced to wear the crimson “A” everywhere she went. As well as the letter to remind her of the wrong she had done, the affair had left her with a fatherless daughter named Pearl. Later in the novel we discover the father is the Reverend of the town, the admirable Arthur Dimmesdale. Through pain, remorse and agony the novel reveals that it is better to tell a harmless lie then to confess a hurtful truth.
I was disgusted by the way these two pimps namely Anthony and Chris Griffith decided to video how they go about making money hoping to get a television network into giving them their own reality show. They lure young girls into believing I will be your daddy and will always be there for them. I understand why these girls fall victim to such daddy words as most of them grew up without a father. Nevertheless, those who had fathers happened to be living with their step-fathers who they disliked because of how they were treated. It was very shocking for these girls to say they were in love with their daddies.
