The name of the story already starts getting you involved with questions going through your head asking what is so important about this room and why is it red. Red is also associated as a negative colour giving it effect rather than calling it say the blue room which sounds strange but makes you picture it in a much more positive way. The first line "I can assure you,' said I, 'that it will take a very tangible ghost to frighten me" which tells you that it is a ghost story and unlike longer stories there is no long intro and instead the writer has got straight to the point. There are four characters in the beginning which are the young man, the old and his wife and another old man. The two old men and the old woman are all afraid of going into the red room and warn the young man not to go there but curiosity overpowers the young man and he wants to go inside.
His intolerance intimidates the Thebans, “All these / Would say that what I did was honourable, But fear locks up their lips,” (Antigone 139-140). This shows that despite his short time as king, Creon has inspired the fear of his subjects. His power is strengthened by their resistance to confront him, and this power is what makes him an extraordinary person. Creon is often labeled as the “bad guy” in Antigone, but this classification characterization ignores his qualities that make him a more complex character with good and bad traits. He takes his position of power seriously, working hard to keep order in Thebe... ... middle of paper ... ...owledge of his failure.
The second reason is that he thinks it is fine to act in this manner because he has been given a little bit if power, by Olivia; he goes and abuses this by using it in the wrong way.

Overall I don’t believe that Malvolio should be the character that everyone dislikes, but instead it should be Olivia. The reason for this is that in Act 1 Scene5, Viola come to inform Olivia that Orsino, (who is at the same standard as Olivia, and is the Duke of Illyria) is attracted to her, she says, “Good madam, let me see your face” and to this Olivia’s response is, “...Look you, sir, such one I was this present.
Edgar Allan Poe is known for his short stories and are told by narrators who are reliable but, “The Tell-Tale Heart” the unnamed narrator is insane and has a mental disease and there are many reasons why he is insane with evidence to prove it. He claims that he is not mad but he is very nervous. Even though he tries to convince that he is very careful on murdering the old man. A reliable narrator would not be pressed to justify his act, but only to tell it simply and without embellishment. We can clearly see that the narrator is an obsessed man of active senses, the narrator is not mad, we say he’s extremely a clever man is suffers from a mental disease.

People are expected to do what is thought to be right or appropriate. The actions are not necessarily supposed to be bad by nature to be thought as wrong, but it can be something different or unusual for people around. This idea goes throughout the whole story of “Don Quixote”, where a middle-aged man named Alonso Quijano, followed by his inspiration, decides to bring changes into his life. Of course, the original idea of Miguel de Cervantes was to mock the chivalry romances which were very popular during his time. The author portrays a main character as a foolish man who becomes enamored by old stories about valiant knights.
In the story “Peaches”, Reginald McKnight introduces his main characters, one being Marcus. Marcus is a good guy, but he is described in different ways, due to his confidence and insecurity. Throughout the work, author Reginald McKnight takes great care to illustrate situations and describe feelings and personalities that many men experience. This way, even though Marcus is having trouble controlling himself around other people and arrogant at times, he still tries to be a better person for Rita and for himself. He does this by going out of the country to experience other cultures and enhance his morals.

While Claudius is a lustful, greedy, corrupt, manipulating, deceiving murderer that will stop at nothing to achieve his own powerful ambitions, he also has a lighter caring and loving side that he shows to the public. Though unbeknownst to the public his omissions of guilt would be seen as positive if not for his immediate declination for achieving forgiveness in favor of keeping his power, queen, and fortunes. It is things like this that make Claudius such a complex character. He acknowledges that there are right and wrong things to do but often refuses to do the right things because doing wrong is more beneficial to him.

Also he was wronged by his own ego and self centeredness which helped Iago with his evil scheme. In Act 1 Scene 1 Othello was speaking about Iago and says “ So please your grace, my ancient; A man he is of honest and trust” ( Shakespeare 1.3. 283-285).
