Very silly choice if you ask me’. She is very different to other parents because normal parents will complement their child even though they were horrible but Gwen instantly lists all the negatives factors of the play and say Meg was terrible. Gwen’s continuous nagging creates a barrier between her and Meg which Gwen is not able to get out of her domestic world. Furthermore, when Gwen was complaining to Jim that she did not have her keys, Jim tries to convince Gwen that he does not have the key but she tips all the contents of her handbag on the floor which shows she is in a very irrational nature. Gwen has a tendency to repeat a lot of words in order to get a message across which also can show anxiety, especially when she says ‘No.
* Often certain things trigger specific human behavior, for example, Macbeth’s reaction to the witch’s predictions triggered instant doubt, and left him vulnerable to his wife influence. After committing the first crime, Macbeth’s behavior ultimately became over confident, and evil, and this was ultimately due to the reaction that was triggered by the witch’s predictions. * However, prior to the beginning of Macbeth’s self destruction, Macbeth had morals and was a very loyal man * Another message that can be taken from this play is that even the best of the characters can fall and ultimately become the villain. * “Quote” * Link to topic Para 2: Desire and hope for power can be dangerous * Macbeth’s hunger for the throne of the kingdom took over him, and his morals, which prevented him from doing otherwise. * When someone is so desperate for something like this, usually they will do anything to reach their destination.
Explore the ways disturbed characters are presented in Shakeapeare’s Macbeth and Browning’s My Last Duchess, The Laboratory and Porphyria’s Lover. This is essentially a “use of language” essay, you need to show HOW the disturbed natures of the characters are conveyed, not just say how they show themselves. The essential point of this essay is to demonstrate what Shakespeare and Browning DO to convey the disturbed nature of the characters – not just saying what disturbed things the characters say or do, but what poetic and dramatic techniques the authors use to show their distrurbed natures. You MUST use quotations to back up every point you make. If you are hoping for the highest grades (B and above) you must make comparisons between the characters in the poems and Lady Macbeth.
In reality, Raeanne died in a terrible car accident. The trauma of the event caused Kaeleigh’s mind to split, forming another personality, that of her dead sister, Raeanne, who often takes over in times where Kaeleigh would otherwise falter. This eerie, creepy alternative personality takes over Kaeleigh’s life for some period of time, influencing her decisions and making her do things that she naturally wouldn’t contemplate; “I have no real right to play stand-in for Kaeleigh, but she wouldn’t have the nerve to do what needs to be done anyway. Sorry, twin o’ mine, but it’s true” (171). This puppet-master behavior slowly begins to deteriorate Kaeleigh’s life and reputation, causing confusion and torn relationships; “Frigid.
From the governess’ manuscript, how far away the ghost was from her, makes this account both unreliable and self important. For the Governess to be sure that Quint was looking directly at her, would have been difficult yet James includes this short passage, suggesting this interpretation of her. A second quotation from the novella, also suggesting the governess’ self importance is the following, “the extraordinary flight of heroism the occasion demanded of me” in reference to the sightings of the ghosts around Bly. Of course as the reader is aware, the governess has shown no real “heroism” at this point in the novel and has simply seen the ghosts, making this statement laughable; James often expresses ludicrous words from the governess, particularly in her monologues, where her thoughts are seen by the reader. Seeing herself as so important, “extraordinary” and
When she meets up with Adam near the beginning, you'd never even begin to predict what would happen throughout the entire book. What makes it sad though, is toward the end it seems like she can't find anyone to rely on because she's disconnected herself from her family and friends, and instead takes refuge beneath the wings of 'the monster', letting it guide her through, knowing she's strongly addicted. Ellen leaves you with the knowledge that she may never get off her addiction, and partially with the moral of the story: drugs are addictive and harmful. They can really mess you up. The book actually makes you learn a lesson, without knowing anything at all.
170) the tone of the quotation, she was still using him and tried to convinced him to trust her again, but instead, Miro chose not to trust her ever again. Miro hated her since the day she tried to get out of the bridge. Moreover, Kate was playing mind games with Miro, on (pg. 218) she said, “ … You're alone. Alone in the world out there.
She enters as one does who can no longer bear to be barred from the sight of her beloved, but she is also very frightened because her slave sense has warned her that, as always trouble in this house eventually lands on her back." (8). Most of the information about Tituba is historically true but Arthur Miller adds some ideas like "her slave sense has warned her that, as always trouble in this house eventually lands on her back." which has no real background but help build Miller's play. Arthur Miller creates a story from the plethora court information and next uses the information he has from every individual and adds some information about the individual that he has to use for the story to be accurate and plausible.
Dissociating herself from her past caused Julia to put herself in many dangerous and confusing situations throughout her life. Julia has not only tried to commit suicide but she also has forgotten events that happened that very day or earlier in the week. In “Homo Religiosus,” “life depends on the destruction of other creatures” (Armstrong 24), enables that to move on in ones life you have to destroy a certain element or memory which leads to dissociation. In Julia’s world she destroyed her memories of being abused which unfortunately affected and altered the way she looked at reality as an
He considers “The Little Engine That Could” a realistic story. He shares the story of a young adult who reminisced about her childhood and remembered the disappointment she experienced from this story. Bettelheim claims that she experienced this negative effect because the story was set in the present and the main character was a common, well-known prop. These associations caused the girl to apply the story directly to her life, and when she failed (unlike the tank engine in the story) she assumed that she failed at a task that anyone else could have accomplished. Bettelheim argued that “without any fantasy elaboration (Bettelheim 470),” this girl was doomed from the start.
