The most dramatic entrance of the play is at the end of Act Two when ‘Eric enters. Looking extremely pale and distressed’ This moment increases the tension massively because the whole build-up of tension in this scene leads to this moment and then the curtain falling after Eric enters increases it because as the reader we want to know what happened straight away but viewing this as a play there would be a break allowing the audience to think about what they’ve just seen making them really interested in knowing the answer. * Priestly also uses questions and confessions to increase tension in this scene. He uses questions and confessions together to build up tension because The Inspector uses questions that he already knows the answers to, to get the other characters to reveal shocking information which ultimately leads up to each characters confession of their partake in Eva Smith’s suicide which causes each of the characters to judge one another. This creates tension because each character has a confession to make and at this particular moment in the play we have Mrs Birling’s confession who
Gellburg’s response to Slyvia’s outburst is not evidently displayed through speech, but through the use of Miller’s stage directions: ‘He is stock still; horrified, fearful’. The words ‘horrified’ and ‘fearful’ suggest that the news of such events came as a shock to him and undoubtedly indicate that he is affected by such news and is also stricken by Sylvia’s powerful, unexpected revelation of her feelings. Miller conveys the message that that Gellburg finally comes to understand his ignorant attitude as one that has led to his self-denial and self-hatred. It later becomes clear in the play that Gellburg is suppressing an important part of who he is, and in scene eleven, he confesses to a bottled-up desire of ‘going and sitting in the Schul with the old men and pulling the tallis over my head’. Sylvia, in her frustration with Gellburg, says ‘Don’t sleep with me again’ in a rather commanding manner.
LIT DEVICE: TONE Hamlets is a very dynamic character so we see a lot of mood changes in this passage. In the beginning of Hamlet’s speech we start to see that he begins by being very outspoken, desperate and vindictive. We see this things when he says, “all occasions do inform against me, and spur my dull revenge” (4.4.34-35). This lines highlights the idea that Hamlet is being very focused on his revenge. We start seeing a change in his tone by the way he is talking to himself in a more serious and thoughtful way and starts talking about God and the way we are able to make reason of things, by saying “[God] made us with such large discourse, Looking before and after, gave us not That capability and godlike reason to fust in us unused” (4.4.38-41).
The scene begins with him explaining his theory to Valentine, Chloë and Gus. Bernard appears arrogant whilst discussing his theory using language such as “undoubtedly” to support his weak claim. Stage directions present him as domineering and almost aggressive, he’s described as “(…pacing around…)”, an animalistic description. This adds a comical effect to the play because due to the time shifts in previous scenes, we know Bernard is setting himself up for failure and embarrassment. Stoppard further explores the idea of there being a universal pursuit for knowledge in scene 7 when studious characters Hannah and Septimus are on stage at the same time, by this it’s possible Stoppard is trying to express that those who are constantly seeking an answer miss out - Septimus is the hermit Hannah spent so much time looking for.
'I shall enjoy being in the Militia but I planned a very different lifestyle for myself. I was going to become a clergyman but Mr Darcy stopped me.' This only enforces what Lizzy thinks of Mr Darcy. Lizzy becomes to like Mr Wickham even more because they both feel the same way over Mr Darcy. Later Mr Wickham tells Lizzy that 'many people like Mr Darcy because they know he comes form a noble and rich family.
If the audience was ever in doubt, they now realise that the outcome must be tragic. The hope and disappointment pattern of the previous scene is repeated but with more far-reaching implications: opportunities constantly arise for the whole problem to be cleared up satisfactorily, but these are always frustrated with ever more serious consequences. However, the opportunities are lost, not as a result of deliberate wickedness, but by accident. Thus, the act is indeed one of interruptions, of explanations tragically delayed. In the court Judge Danforth is trying to conduct an inquiry, but he is constantly distracted from one problem to another by chance.
Psychoanalytic Criticism in Movies [For your first sentence of this paragraph define what psychoanalytic criticism is.] There are several aspects of psychoanalytic criticism shown in the book Critical Theory Today authored by English Professor Lois Tyson. The main parts [I’ll be focusing on are the differences, anxiety, and core issues of psychoanalytic criticism]. In this [section] of the Psychoanalytic chapter Lois Tyson talks about Fear of abandonment, fear of intimacy, fear of betrayal, and low self-esteem. [My question is how do these different aspects influence movies and the characters within the movie?]
He is of the profound belief that drugs have the power to change a man’s emotion if administered by a wise man and he believes that he is the man perfect for this. Likewise we find out that later in the soliloquy (as well as the play) that the herbs were a symbol or a metaphor as well as foreshadowing his plans in the future of manipulating Romeo and Juliet’s relationship and marrying them in order to better society. We can see that he foreshadows this quite clearly in the Act 2 Scene 3 lines 5-20. This is also exemplified in the quote in lines 15-20 where the friar says: Revolts from true birth, stumbling on abuse. Virtue itself turns vice, being misapplied, And vice sometime by action dignified.
Like many, all of us have doubted someone or something. In John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt, Father Flynn’s doings are misconstrued. Father Flynn is very important in this play because he is the conflict. The accusation against him is not well proven but causes him to resign due to him being a priest. Father Flynn motion to leave St. Nicholas was not out of responsibility, but out of the anxious concern his reputation would be destroyed.
We may go round our history books either lambasting or extolling powerful leaders, but we will always come to the conclusion that power does corrupt a man. The thirst for power is unbounded and the lamentable consequences often quash a man. Getting power is just the onset of melancholy, disaster, lugubriousness and sorrow. All the leaders throughout history were undoubtedly very strong and were feared but we often learn that they were sordid, uncouth, perpetrators, lascivious, perplexed and unscrupulous. They often committed a myriad of staggering sins and believed they were masters of perpetuity.
