well, for the matter of fact all i had to do was make this up and it worked.... i hope. a central motif in the play is trickery or deceit, whether for good or evil purposes. counterfeiting, or concealing one's true feelings, is part of this motif. everyone seems to lie; good characters as well as evil ones engage in deceit as they attempt to conceal their feelings: beatrice and benedick mask their feelings for one another with bitter insults; don john spies on claudio and hero; don pedro and his 'crew' deceive benedick and beatrice. who hides and what is hidden?
The idea that she consciously recognises the need for “murdering ministers” to provide her with the support to assist Macbeth in regicide certainly falls in favour of arguing that she willingly has the desire for help from the darker realms, making her more evil for actually wanting to be tainted by the poisonous associations of “darkness” in the play. In addition, concealment is a significant device employed into the plot of Macbeth. In Act 3 scene 2, Macbeth hides his dark plans away from Lady Macbeth. Through concealment, Shakespeare allows readers to gain an insight to the ever-changing relationship between the couple. Macbeth tells his wife to “be
Now some could say that she is in need of being saved from her vampire personality, but in a physical sense of things she is completely self-sufficient. Carter is trying to show that the conventions and stereotypes in Gothic literature are simply results of following a traditional form, and should not bare any oddity in logical terms. She is preventing this role reversal as a completely normal and possible thing, and she succeeds in doing so. Despite this viewpoint that the reader sees, the man does not necessarily feel as if he is the victim. he is impervious to the mysticism of the house and furthermore the woman.
Mean girls/ Julius Caesar Comparative Essay In the movie Mean Girls by Tina Fey and the play Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare there are many motifs. I will be specifically looking at motifs of betrayal from both stories that illustrate the theme “you have to be careful who you trust”. In the movie Mean Girls the main character Cady becomes very good friends with Regina George. Later in the movie Regina lies to Cady by telling her that she is going to hook Cady up with a boy, when really, Regina is trying to get with that same boy. Another example of betrayal in the movie Mean Girls would be when Cady gets all of Regina’s good friends to turn against her.

I think that Offred finds it a bit absurd that she could be killed just for playing scrabble. 2. After the Ceremony is performed again something happens and Offred says “You can see from the way I was speaking to him that we were already on different terms” (203). What does she mean?

It is rumoured that Othello has slept with Emilia “he’s done my office”. The offence not being the emotional betrayal that modern society would take from an affair but rather the seizure of his property. By using the term “office” and also saying in another part of the play “leapt into my seat” he commodifies Emilia just as Othello and Brabantio do to Emilia. Also, Emilia by obtaining the handkerchief is useful to Iago but in the grand scheme of things is secondary to his grand schemes. Evidenced by the contempt he shows for her throughout the
Miller has portrayed the community of Salem as a town tainted by enigmatic irony as a result of the role reversal of good and evil, due to greed and autocratic power, aggravated by sexual repression, themes that are still prevalent in society today. Arthur millers dramatisation of the seventeenth-century witch-trials administrates the compelling theme of order and disorder, provoked by sexual repression. The Crucibles Setting, culture and congruence to historical events enhance the audiences understanding of the order and beliefs of the puritan’s in the small, relatively new community of Salem. Basing its
In conclusion, Tessie Hutchinson adheres to the tradition of the lottery by coming to the lottery, cheering her husband on while he draws, and even drawing her slip of paper.
