After pushing and shoving leads to Avery’s death, Dante is arrested for his murder and is being tried as an adult. Now, one can argue that Dante never had the intent to kill Avery but in society, Dante’s action is considered as a hate crime. Throughout the court process, Dante shows signs of remorse of his actions by expressing tears in court, however the ADA continuously pushes to charge Dante as an adult because of the hate crime charge. Mills would agree with the ADA’s decision to charge Dante as an adult because Dante’s absence will benefit society and improve the peace of mind of Avery’ parents. Mills would argue that Dante was nothing but a bully and life will improve with Dante in prison.
Antigone represents most of Aristotle’s criteria of a classic tragedy, especially tragic conflict. This conflict arises between two characters whose power struggle causes tragedy through the play. It is apparent that power will be the cause of tragedy when the play opens. Morality versus Law is the main conflict that characterizes this play. Each side of this conflict is represented by the two main characters of this play; Antigone as the morality of an individual and Creon as the power of the law.
There is great tension between the family and especially between Eddie and Marco in these two scenes. In the first scene I have chosen we see this when Eddie begins to show signs of jealousy towards Rodolfo.The end of the play shows a great deal of tension between the family as it is torn apart. Feelings of pride and honour add to ... ... middle of paper ... ...these two scenes in creating tension and excitement. It is through his use of stage directions and how he perceives tension that Miller creates an effective piece of drama. My essay shows how Arthur Miller created tension and excitement in the play and made it an effective piece of drama.
It may even save a place in incarceration for someone else who is better suited for it. I don’t think the court has to do as the victim wishes exactly for a punishment, but it should take the victim’s opinion into account when sentencing. This “Case Study 5” will probably never happen with our system because it would require too much of a change. For some reason America likes to waste time and money. Including a victim in courtroom proceeding would take more time and since we are a time based society, this tells us that we would not want this.
Though King Lear might appear at first as chaotic in this regard as its titular character and the message/meaning of the play therefore uncertain, there is a predominant sense of order in its careful exploration of socio-political issues such as class struggle, tyranny by monarchy, and power-driven relationships. This criticism evidently influences Shakespeare’s manipulation of certain theatrical and literary devices within play, which in turn are used to further support the message of social equality and criticism of tyrannical monarchy. Dramatic and literary features such as plot, character, language and action complement this socio-political commentary and result from the tragic genre that Shakespeare has chosen. In turn, the genre and the devices work together to support the commentary that King Lear is trying to pass on to an audience; to reinforce the idea that Kings are also men and just as flawed, that men can also be Kings and that in death we are all equal. King Lear is a Renaissance tragedy and this particular form of the tragic genre defines how Shakespeare approaches the theatrical and literary tools that he uses.
The audience share Alfieri’s perspectiv... ... middle of paper ... ...the play, just over there to send money home, but now it seems like he is taking an active part, and defending Rodolfo against Eddies slanderous onslaught. In conclusion, I feel that Arthur Miller creates tension in the climax to Act 1 in “A View From The Bridge,” in many different ways. These include the exploration and presentation of many of the key themes that Miller has sewn throughout the play, comprising mainly of: masculinity, incest, Greek tragedy, jealousy, pride and obsession. He uses surprise, and a ‘factor of the unknown’ to keep the audience in suspense as to when Eddie will lose control, but never in doubt to the fact that he will. All in all Miller uses a variety of techniques and themes to create tension for the audience and keep them in suspense for the whole play, and successfully draws on this to build huge climaxes at many points.
All three of these points are attributed to Bartleby because he represents each respectively. In Mordecai Marcus’ critical essay on Bartleby the Scrivener, he takes the stand that Bartleby is a psychological double for the nameless lawyer. While progressing through the novella, Bartleby begins to slow down and eventually stops working altogether. The Lawyer doesn’t know what to do mainly because, “Bartleby’s power over the lawyer quickly grows as the story progresses.” (Marcus 1) When the lawyer first hired Bartleby, he was a tenacious young worker, “There was no pause for digestion. He ran a day and night line, copying by sunlight and by candlelight.” (Melville 16) This is in the beginning of the novella right after the lawyer had hired him.
This story is autobiographical about the forces that control Franz Kafka's life. In this paper I will explain how Kafka relates his life to the readers through the story in Metamorphosis. Franz Kafka had trouble at home with his father. His father wanted him to become a lawyer, but Franz did not want to be a lawyer, he wanted to be a writer. He went to law school against his will, because his father wanted him to go there.
The Role of Alfieri in Miller’s A View from the Bridge Arthur Miller is now regarded as one of the world’s greatest dramatists. In his plays he explores the struggles of the ordinary man against authority and insurmountable odds. It is his ability to dramatize the attempts to find the balance between the different conflicts of life that is Miller’s feature as a writer. “Many of his plays look at the position of the individual in relation to their responsibilities and position in society and may be seen, as a result, to be political.” (Tim Bezant.) While exploring human faults he also talks about the hidden emotions within people.
In conclusion, Miller uses Alfieri in a number of different ways. As chorus, narrator, character in action, dramatic device, and to uphold many of the plays themes. Alfieri is a key character and without his input, it is impossible to identify with the themes and to appreciate the relevance of the play and the fate of its protagonist. It is through this, that we understand and judge the play correctly, empathise with the characters and gain the intended emotions from witnessing the struggle and pain caused when someone breaks the unwritten laws of society.
