Changing Impressions: A Sydney Carton Character Analysis - They say a first impression is everything. However, I’ve found that these aren’t reliable. Some people cover their true feelings, trying to be tough. You never know what’s going on in people’s lives when you first meet them that causes them to act differently. And sometimes, we just make inaccurate assumptions. This is also true of things in literature. In Charles Dickens’s novel “A Tale of Two Cities,” and in all his novels, he wants to confuse people to keep them reading.

However, through the use of soliloquies, aside, dramatic irony, imagery, choice of language and what other characters say about him, Shakespeare sculpts Macbeth into a walking contradiction, leaving the audience to vacillate between contrasting opinions of him. Through out eyes, Macbeth morphs continuously into different characteristics in the space of just a few lines- yet unlike a typical tragic protagonist, he remains as barbaric as he was at the beginning through to the end....   [tags: literary analysis, critical analysis] 1327 words
