They are optimistic and flattering. In the last three, the observer begins to take a much more judgmental perspective. She begins to illustrate how the choices made early on have left the woman in a tragic, almost pathetic situation. The author does this by changing the point of view from her to I, making the overall attitude much more judgmental. Title x2: “Pathedy of Manners” is about a woman who seems to have a perfect life, but the woman is wrapped in society’s “pathedy” (pathetic tragedy) of manners (expectations), and is too concerned with what is expected of her.
Through Steinbeck’s literary techniques he explains the causes of Lennie’s death through the theme, characterization and foreshadowing. Although Steinbeck was able to leave his readers with many thoughts to think about from the story, one of the themes that clearly show the cause of Lennie’s death is sacrificing. Even though by killing Lennie, George lifts a heavy burden off his chest for he no longer has to take care of Lennie and deal with all the troubles Lennie keep on making for him. However, George has to sacrifice his friendship and love because by shooting Lennie he loses a friend whom had always been keeping him company and shares a dream with him, to have their own farm where they would share and live together. Other than that, it was not easy for George to shoot Lennie but he had to do it because if he didn’t he knew that Curley would and in a more painful way.
That coming September Queen Elizabeth recited what seemed to be a heart-felt speech in which she addressed the public and thanked them for showing their condolence during that dreadful time. Diana’s brother gave a heart rendering eulogy, exposing how Diana’s darker side is what led her to be such a bright person to others. Many controversies lie within both Diana’s life and death; Wikipedia addresses this showing the other sides to a seemingly perfect life. Out of these three passages there is a continual theme of appearance versus reality however the most rhetorically effective is the eulogy given by her brother, Earl Spencer. Queen Elizabeth gave her televised speech on September 5, 1997; from an outsider looking in the speech seems heartfelt and sincere however to one who knows the history between Diana and the Queen would find this speech a façade.
During act 1 the audience recognise one of Sheila’s characteristics by her use of careless language. ‘You must drink to our health’ this reinforces the fact that Sheila’s engagement has engulfed her mind leaving her to think carelessly about anything else. The phrase ‘our health’ quoted by Sheila foreshadows the death of Eva Smith which later she will know about leaving her engagement mood shattered As the play progresses, Sheila’s character develops from being unsympathetic to sympathetic. ‘And I know I’m to blame- and I’m desperately sorry’ this clearly states that she has developed maturity as she shows her sympathetic feeling along with holding responsibility by taking blame for what she had done. ‘Desperately sorry’ this emphasises the point stated that Priestly develops Sheila’s character as the play progresses.
She is first perceived as a weak character who Iago says keeps many thoughts to herself: "She puts her tongue a little in her heart," meaning that many of her most critical thoughts remain unsaid. Even Desdemona has to encourage her to speak. This silence throughout much of the play may be one cause of her drastically changing at the end. Initially Emilia sets out to please Iago without question, as this was her role as an Elizabethan wife, however at the end she speaks against him when she realizes his true intentions. Her change at the end of the play could show that she’s isn’t an outsider, as she now has her own opinion and her own voice like many of the other characters within the play.
One could even say her character develops through her depreciation. She becomes more realistic, more human of a character, as she loses herself to the lies and rumors. A more specific, obvious example from the text is when she reaches her final breaking point. She becomes certain that she would end her life after speaking to her teacher, Mr. Porter. It’s a crucial moment in the book, the deciding factor in a story we already knew the outcome of.
In The Myth of Sisyphus -Sisyphus stole the gods secrets and he was punished for this action. It was said that realizing that he was close to death that he wanted to see how much his wife really loved him, and he was granted that but fell for the scene of life and wanted to stay there. “But when he had seen again the face of this world, enjoyed water and sun, warm stones and the sea, he no longer wanted to go back to the infernal darkness.” (Camus The Myth of Sisyphus). This is somewhat similar to the emotions
Hedda Tesman in “Hedda Gabler” By Henrik Ibsen Hedda Tesman in “Hedda Gabler” by Henrik Iben is a central figure as well as a dynamic character, which means she changes throughout the play. She behaves atrociously to everyone with whom she comes in contact, and her moral sense is defective. After all, the play is a tragedy since Hedda turned out to be all pity and petty. Hedda is not simply evil and preserve. She born as General Gabler’s daughter so she feels for a better destiny and imbues with romantic vision of making one’s own life a work of art.
Is this a commentary on the modern day passiveness towards death and violence? That a boy should fall from the sky to his death for no one to notice, except for his own father, is certainly a kind of indifference. Wendy A. Shaffer, in comparison, questions if Icarus would have listened had Daedalus not spoken in the same tone used in his everyday chastisements. The theme of father and son has also brought about works depicting Daedalus’ reaction to his son’s death. Anne Sexton tells of Icarus plunging to his death “while his sensible daddy goes straight to town,” in her poem ‘To a Friend Whose Work has come to Triumph.’ In the myth Daedalus searches the ocean for his lost son.
Hamlet even seems to have forgotten the main reason why he is avenging his father’s death. Hamlet makes many decisions from not killing Claudius while he was praying to killing the innocent Polonius, and disobeying his father’s ghost’s instructions by tormenting his mother, and Laertes can be seen as the very opposite of Hamlet because he is everything that Hamlet is not. Hamlet’s delay of vengeance can also be seen as another
