Analysis of Tony the Arch-Deceiver
My opinion is, I don't think Tony is a player because when reading the
story at first everyone assumes he is going to ask Milly for her hand
in marrage.Reading on we discover he doesn't yet know who he prefers.
However, I feel he is quite cheeky when he convinces two girls to hide
in his cart and talks to all saying he likes them because that is very
deceiving and could confuse all three when his final choice is made.
This could convince the reader he is the arch-deceiver, we are lead to
believe he is! Considering the circumstances he obviously thought this
was the best thing to do.
I also feel that Tony considers all three of the girls feelings by
hiding two of them! This may not have been the best course of action
to take, however Tony appeciates completly different qualities in all
three so is trying to make up his mind this way.
I think that the group of people most likely to disagree with Tony's
actions would be female as I can see it from there point of view and
would not like it myself! I think that Milly has strong feelings and
the other two are flirting and are not as serious.
Tony is leading the girls on because both Unity and Hannah know he has
asked Milly for her hand in marrage.
In the beginning of the story, it goes on to say that two of the three
girls get a lift, he doesn't actually ask them, he is just being
polite by agreeing to help:Unity says
''My dear tony will you give me a lift home''
How could he possibly say no when he obviously had plenty of time for
her. Tony has Milly his intended wife and he should not have worried
about giving the other two a lift, so there was no problem with what
he was doing. Also he had not planned to come across all three that
day, so when he was faced with the situation it was a case of dilema

Throughout Macbeth, Shakespeare illustrates Macbeth’s journey to becoming a ruthless and tyrannical man who will do anything and everything to gain more power. Macbeth’s actions of killing prove Machiavelli’s theory that men are cowardly and dishonest, which leads those similar to Macbeth, to believe being feared is safer than being loved. Macbeth has demonstrated Machiavelli’s theory by his actions of murder and betrayal towards individuals, such as Banquo, under his ruling. Macbeth believes that being feared is safer than loved by his people, which causes citizens under his ruling to think he is a bad king. Since individuals believe Macbeth is a negligent king due to his cowardly and dishonest actions, individuals won’t put their trust or
What is a Hero? In the Novel Mythology by Edith Hamilton it speaks of many Greek Gods and Goddesses, you get a clear outlook on many of the characters in the novel. Many of these gods fit some criteria on what a hero is. An Epic Hero is a character who is brave and takes risks to accomplish tasks not only for themselves but for the goodness of others. A Hero is someone who doesn't only do things to benefit themselves but benefits the people around them and goes on quests to establish their greatness. Who is also glorified by their community. In the Novel two characters by the name Theseus and Perseus meet many of these characteristics. Perseus is very brave and goes on a quest to capture an item that is very dangerous
Tragedies are more often than not titled after the tragic hero. A piece that its title challenged by its name is Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar. Many people contend that the title should 've been named after Brutus and not Julius Caesar. And Brutus should be the title since he is the implicit tragic hero.
As a man, I would focus more on hiding my emotions and keeping to myself. The reality of the life of a man varies from a woman because of the different social expectations required by people of different genders. In my current experience as a woman, I must remain slightly subordinate to men, but to still maintain enough confidence to hold my own. This is what I would do as a man, except I would be confidence in all actions and fearfully respect my elders and superiors. The overall reality of life would stray from that of female reality that historically has been focused on keeping the home, raising the children, and be a subsidiary in regards to the financial structure of a home. The patriarchal society
Many characters in Julius Caesar demonstrate qualities of contrasting ambitious objectives. Deception and manipulation appear to be two of the main qualities contributing to the plot for the assassination of Caesar. Although Brutus is seen as the leader of the conspirators Cassius established himself as a deceitful manipulator with an immoral agenda. Although seen throughout the play, Cassius’s soliloquy primarily demonstrates the immoral aspects of his character as he is driven by manipulating Brutus’s political position for personal advancement.
From birth, society assigns people different roles depending on gender and surrounds them with the expectation to act differently. According to Mead, Some feminine characteristics include depend, passive, quiet, weak, soft, accepting, and graceful. Masculine characteristics include aggressive, clumsy, experienced, strong, active, competitive, and non-emotional. Children learn gender roles at an early age from their family, culture, religion, as well as outsides forces like television, magazines and other media. Adolescents read ads filled with airbrushed, perfect women; girls look...
Throughout history, there have been many human beings whom have been seen as either a hero or a villain. In their childhood, these people must had obstacles that were in their way, causing each individual to either work harder or give up. People, however; must understand that each individual has a potential in achieving their goals, but if one is mistreated or deceived due to jealousy, resentment, hatred, or ambition, it can lead to many catastrophic events. People who have pride and arrogance do not want to have equals, rather they want to see their victims suffer. These people have no difficulty in achieving their goals due to the fact that their victims have too innocent a nature to suspect the nefarious motives of their enemies. In this tragedy, Othello, Shakespeare has created a villain who behaves in this manner. Iago’s hatred, method of revenge, and vengeful hatred are the reasons of the lives lost in this play and the reasons that lead to Iago’s downfall.
The lines selected for analysis are Act II, Scene I, lines 277-291, when Antonio is trying to reassure Sebastian that killing his brother—the King of Naples—is a good idea and well worth the effort. As the reader knows, Antonio usurped his brother, Prospero, and became the Duke of Milan. This sets the stage for his attitude towards Sebastian’s wanting to kill his brother, King Alonso. Because of Antonio’s past actions he sees nothing wrong with getting rid of a family member for personal gain, but his reasons for doing so began at a young age and have been etched into his brain. Antonio’s psychological depth reveals that he is a man jealous of his brother’s rightful power, and stemming from that is his insecurity and lust for power wherever he may find it (in this case, having power over Sebastian). Antonio is not a good person, has few conscientious thoughts, and is now trying to convince his companion to follow his lead. If Antonio’s brother, Prospero, was to hear the selected lines, he would say that the only time Antonio thinks about performing acts that will get him power, by eliminating those who currently have it, is when it is to his advantage. He would say that Antonio devises plans to get rid of leaders when they are at a disadvantage, and he at an advantage, because he doesn’t feel that he could succeed otherwise—his insecurities kicking in. I don’t think Shakespeare agrees with Antonio, and there are two examples in the play to support that.
Men are usually associated with dominance, being a higher class, and aggressiveness. Women are associated with being fragile, nurturing, and subordination. The role you play in this world is made up before you’re even born. When you are born and you are a boy they dress you in blue. If you are a female you are dressed up in pink. Gender socialization occurs throughout agents named education family, and what the media thinks is right. All of these example show how gender roles are creating expectations for the gender of the child. Other agents that determine how you act are things such as religion. How the stereotypes of a religion can leave you trapped being someone or something you do not want to be. Things that should be gotten rid
In every great play, there must be a villain to assist in forming the base of the plot. Without a villain, no story or play will be successful or interesting. Shakespeare is well known for his use of different types of villains in his plays. “What constitutes a villain? -- You could probably write a whole thesis on that one. I'm going to adopt a rather loose working definition - villains are people who do bad stuff.” (Dooley) Dooley’s description of villains is a very accurate summary of the description of villains. They are, essentially, people who do things that are seen as morally wrong by readers. Many of the villains in Shakespeare’s plays come across as almost sociopathic. In Shakespeare’s plays Othello, Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Hamlet, the villains are Iago, Oberon, and Claudius, respectively.
