The Development of Antagonists - Authors employ similar qualities of motives and characteristics to the antagonists of their novels in order to relate the situation to the reader through the common traits witnessed in human nature. In the novels Goose Girl by Shannon Hale, Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, and the play The Crucible by Arthur Miller, each author attributes the qualities of jealousy, manipulation, and questionable sanity to the antagonists of their composition. Through this depiction of conventional topics, the authors are able to convey that when people are driven by the greed for power, they will always be defeated by those driven by honorable means....   [tags: Goose Girl, Water for Elephants, The Crucible]

Othello's strong love for his wife and the love that Desdemona shows him by betraying her father shows the bond between the two of them. As a man Othello was honorable and noted with high regard around Venice, also a strong and great leader....   [tags: Othello essays] 526 words

Use of Irony in A Streetcar Named Desire and Hamlet - In both A Streetcar Named Desire and Hamlet, Tennessee Williams and William Shakespeare, respectively, demonstrate their abilities to create engaging plays which work on several levels in order to produce the desired effect. One of the most important characteristics of these plays is the playwrights' success in using their words to create the worlds surrounding their works. Both Shakespeare and Williams effectively use irony in the aforementioned plays, both in the plot and with specific symbolism, to create mildly existential environments where effective irony is a confirmation of fate and justice....   [tags: Tennessee Williams, William Shakespeare] 701 words

Comparing Fall of the House of Usher, Young Goodman Brown, and Rip Van Winkle - Comparing Fall of the House of Usher, Young Goodman Brown, and Rip Van Winkle In the early eighteen hundreds, literature in the Americas started a revolution of style in upcoming authors. Authors started to look towards nature for symbolism and society as a source of sin. The underlined meaning in most of these stories was meant to leave the reader with a new perspective of their personal lives and society as a whole. Three stories that use this particular technique are Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Young Goodman Brown," Edgar Allen Poe's "Fall of the House of Usher," and Washington Irving's "Rip Van Winkle....   [tags: Compare Contrast Papers Hawthorne Poe Irving]

Sanity of the Narrator in The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe - Sanity of the Narrator in The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe In Edgar Allen Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" we question the sanity of the narrator almost immediately, but we cannot prove either way whether or not he is insane. I have read a lot of Poe's work although not all of it. His mysterious style of writing greatly appeals to me. Poe has an uncanny talent for exposing our common nightmares and the hysteria lurking beneath our carefully structured lives.

Heart of Darkness - How Do We Encounter Ourselves in the Modern Society - While I was reading the short story “Heart of Darkness,” by Joseph Conrad, I recalled an essay I read back in Korea, titled “Why Do We Read Novels.” The writer of the essay states that the most common reason why we, as people, read novels is that it makes us ask ourselves how the justice or injustice of the real world relates to that of the author’s words.

Custom Essays: Hamlet as an Accessory to Ophelia's Suicide - Hamlet as an Accessory to Ophelia's Suicide           William Shakespeare's character of Ophelia in Hamlet, suffers greatly, from the time she learns of her father Polonius' death, until her own mysterious death.  In Hamlet, Gertrude, Horatio and Claudius refer to her state, and conclude that she is crazy1[1].  Though there is some truth to their claim, Shakespeare created Ophelia as an overly- dramatic character, who is somewhat exaggerating her emotions to give an impression of madness.  Although their impression of Ophelia can be supported, evidence is not shown as much in her words, as it is shown in her actions.  Ophelia's songs seem like riddles and nonsense2[2], yet they are simil...   [tags: GCSE English Literature Coursework]

The feminist critic argues that Ophelia is an important character in her own right, not just a foil to Hamlet. Further, she says that Ophelia's story is important to tell from a feminist perspective because it allows Ophelia to upstage Hamlet, and that this re-telling can be done by tracing the iconography of Ophelia in visual art, theater, movies, and even psychiatric theory....   [tags: Movie Film comparison compare contrast]

Hamlet is generally considered the foremost tragedy in English drama.

A Study of Madness in Hamlet - A Study of Madness in Hamlet I think that one of the most poignant themes of Hamlet is the presentation and importance of madness. We first see a glimpse of madness with Hamlet who pretends to be mad, using it as a cunning mask while he battles with his own mind and conscience over the idea of revenge. There is also the character of Ophelia who turns mad with grief when she hears of her father's death. Although while Hamlet is holding up this pretence of madness he slowly becomes drawn into a depression, which is so deep at some points it is unclear whether he is insane or deeply depressed, I would not call this depression madness in any way because the term madn...   [tags: Papers] 1846 words

It is said, in Sophocles’ play Antigone, that Antigone is crazy. Looking deeper into her character helps determine how insane she may very well be. Antigone is a strong woman. She does what she believes shall be done, whether or not it, in the sense of the law, is wrong. She proves her strength and determination when saying, “‘And even if I die in the act, that death will be a glory.’” (Sophocles 1331)....   [tags: Classic Literature]
