The introduction of suicide to any person or being is not good. Being too inquisitive can lead to your downfall. Because of the monster wanting to learn more, the monster was destined to die of suicide, similar to Werter. I would replace this book with Chrysanthemum. This book uses a lot of comforting words, such as “precious” and “beautiful”.
He uses and controls others to diminish the psychological wellbeing of Othello. All of the characters in the book trust him including Othello, which makes him more deceitful. In the beginning of the play Iago say’s “I follow him to serve my turn upon him”. This just reinforces the fact that Iago is fraudulent and untrustworthy. Iago also say’s “My lord, you know I love you” which juxtaposes his previous quote “I hate the moor”.
Shakespeare manipulates our response to Richard by implying in the text that he poisoned his wife Anne in order to gain a political marriage to his niece, Elizabeth of York. He is a master of dissembling and a man undeniably without charm, regardless his physical deformity. Finally, he possesses a sense of irony and a sardonic wit, which extensively explains his connection with audiences and readers. Shakespeare’s use of soliloquies enables us to see Richard’s duplicitous nature. He masterfully manipulates our response into having a grudging admiration for his skilful use of language.
He uses his power over his wife Stella Kowalski and his sister in law Blanche DuBois to selfishly gain attention from friends and to regain his dominance in his home. He also is a very sexist character and shows little respect for the women in the play. Finally Stanley’s love of sex and his physical strength ends up in him raping Blanche. A character like Stanley who abuses his power of being the man of the house should not be cheered for when reading the play and should be considered the villain. Firstly the beginning of the play shows Stanley abusing his leadership in the household to get what he wants.
The Picture of Dorian Gray is not a novel for the optimist. In his attempt, following Lord Henry's dictum, 'to cure the soul by means of the senses, and the senses by means of the soul,' Dorian succeeds only in satiating the one and corrupting the other. Lord Henry is often pilloried by critics as a cynic who manipulates Dorian into doing the things that he advocates but is too withdrawn and too frightened to do himself. In this view, Henry is a tired man who wants to live vicariously through a younger, more beautiful specimen who has the ability (or so Lord Henry supposes) to experience life as Lord Henry believes it ought to be experienced. No doubt all this is true.
Voltaire shows how Candide slowly realizes this logic when he encounters constant conflict and disaster after leaving the Baron’s castle and his old “perfect world”. Candide sees how almost everyone in this world acts selfishly only to reap benefits for themselves and take away from their fellow humanity. Some people probably think that Voltaire may come off as a pessimistic, but he really is just trying to show how foolish optimistic people and corrupt religion can be when you live in a world that constantly challenges you and makes you suffer so much. Essentially Voltaire is trying to tell us that the happiness of humanity is impossible, because the only “real” life is the life where you endure good things and bad things and not the life where you live in the best of all worlds and have no problems and everything is handed to
Ender’s excellence brings a lot of torture for him when Stilson wants to overrule him, Bernard frustrates him and Graff uses his sister to break Ender down emotionally. To begin with, Stilson wants to hurt Ender because he thinks he was excellent if his monitor and which is taken off. “Oh, gonna fight me huh? Gonna fight me, Thirde?” (Card 7). In this quote, Stilson shows anger toward Ender who deliberately creates a situation to hurt Ender.
Throughout the play many references to sex are made when Hamlet speaks to or refers to Ophelia. Hamlet has a hard time with Ophelia because she is so easily controlled and manipulated by the men in her life. Both her father and brother try to use her to set up Hamlet so that the king can get him. Hamlet truly has been in love with Ophelia, but once he is visited by the ghost of his father, he seems to become less interested in his relationship with Ophelia. The sexual imagery begins to diminish as the play goes on, Hamlet becomes more obsessed with avenging his father’s death and pretty much looses interest in everything else.
The family drama keeps Hamlet from having any true support. But, next Ophelia enters the plot. As sad as it is Hamlet is so brilliant that he will eventually use poor Ophelia for revenge. Hamlet is so capable of destroying a person. H e uses attacking with language, plays with words and cons people into thinking his way or believing what he wants them to believe.
In the book Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare, the entire plot of the play stems from multiple tricks that characters play on each other. Shakespeare is suggesting that tricking people is not right or wrong, for the outcome of the tricks can be beneficial or destructive, or just plain harmless. One example of how deception might be bad is when Don John, bitter about being the “backup Prince,” used trickery to get revenge. When he learned about Claudio’s feelings for Hero and their plan to marry, he was provided with great opportunity to strike everybody at once. Don John decided to spoil Claudio’s love for Hero and sabotage their marriage.
