Although this is deeply rooted in his character, his obsessive thoughts are a product of continuous grieving. In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Hamlet learns from a ghost of his father’s brutal murder. Hamlet weeps and plans to take action but doesn’t deliver. Instead he plots his revenge and waits for the perfect moment to avenge King Hamlet. The ghost of Hamlet’s father influences Hamlet to seek revenge who would otherwise contemplate the subject to death, GHOST: Revenge his foul murder and most unnatural murder.
Bacon’s idea of revenge is proved true because it occurs in The Interlopers, Romeo and Juliet and the biography of Takashi Tanemori. The author Saki writes an ironic story called The Interlopers, it gives a moral lesson about getting along, and how it is best not to take revenge. The Gradwitz and Znaeym family have been in a family feud for three generations over forestland, and the only thing both families have been taught is to hate each other. Both Ulrich and Georg head out into the woods, ready to kill each other, “Each had a rifle in his hand, each had a hate in his heart and murder uppermost in mind,”(Saki 305). This revenge between Georg and Ulrich can only make things slowly worse when they meet; because disaster struck, pinning the enemies down under a tree where they were harming themselves physically and emotionally.
His fascination with death can be traced back to the death of those he loved in his life, including his mother, step-mother, and wife. Poe conveys his fixation through his narrators in short stories, whether they kill based on fear, hate, or anxiety. By including death in all his works, he frightens his audience and shows them that death is unavoidable and constantly chases us throughout our lives. Works Cited Poe, Edgar Allan. “The Fall of the House of Usher.” The American Tradition in Literature.
In Shakespeare’s play the character of Hamlet is looking to avenge the murder of his father King Hamlet and in McCabe’s novel the character of Francie Brady seeks for revenge for almost everything that has happened to him, from the death of his mother to the loss of Joe’s friendship. Often the question of whether revenge is justified arises. In Hamlets case I see revenge as being justifiable because his motivations are strong, but things get complicated quickly which result in tragedy. On the contrary I do not believe Francies acts of revenge are justified because his motivations for revenge are unjustly placed; his acts of revenge result in harm to himself as well as the person whom he places all the blame on. The combination of distress and anger motivated Hamlet to avenge his father’s murder.
O’Brien imagines his own death by putting himself in the Vietnamese soldier’s shoes. But with the same fantasy, he also tortures himself, by imagining exactly why the man’s death might be such a horrible tragedy. O’Brien feeds his guilt by imagining that the man he killed was in the prime of his life. By imagining that the man he killed wrote romantic poems in his journal and had fallen in love with a classmate whom he married before he enlisted as a common rifleman, O’Brien can more easily identify with his victim and understand the terrible nature of the killing. O’Brien also details some of the soldier’s aspirations.
When Hamlet encounters the ghost of his father, their conversation raises all kinds of unthinkable questions, for example murder by a brother, unfaithful mother, that triggers Hamlet's obsession. He feels compelled to determine the reliability of the ghost's statements so that he can determine how he must act. Ultimately, it is his obsession with death that leads to Hamlet avenging the death of his father by killing Claudius. In act 3, Hamlet questions the unbearable pain of life and views death through the metaphor of sleep. "To be or not to be: that is the question: / whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer / the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles / and, by opposing end them.
“John laughs at me, of course, but one expects that” (An Introduction to Fiction 572) which illustrates the role women are expected to play and accept in a marriage. Another main function Gilman gave of John’s control over the narrator is his inhibiting of her writing. Although she believes writing would help her condition, as I’m sure Gilman did, John insists it would only debilitate her ailment further. He stifles her creativity and intellect, forcing her into the role of the submissive wife. She is forced to hide her writings, which frustrate her more “I did write for a while in spite of them; but it does exhaust me a good deal—having to be so sly about it, or else meet with heavy opposition” (572).
Although the woman that Troilus loved did not die like the woman the Black Knight loved, she still broke his heart by not being true to him. Despite the fact that they lost their women in different ways, they are both still victims of love won and love lost. Chaucer never speaks about his own experiences with love, but it is made evident in Troilus and Criseyde what his understanding of love really is: "Ek though I speeke of love unfelyngly, // No wondre is, for it nothyng of newe is" (T&C.II.19-20) He speaks of love as if it is nothing new. Troilus is very inexperienced and immature when it comes to love. This is portrayed when he criticizes love and people who are in love in Book I, which is why Cupid put Troilus's love l... ... middle of paper ... ... of Troye, In lovynge, how his aventures fellen Fro wo to wele, and after out of joie, My purpose is, er that I parte fro yet.
For example, many critics claim that the Crawfords should be the heroes based on their charm, but it becomes evident as the novel unfolds that they lack principals and care for none but themselves. Fanny's superiority as a heroine is observed in Mary and Henry Crawford's undisciplined, unprincipled, improper actions throughout the novel. The reader is introduced to Henry Crawford's true nature early in the novel. Though Henry's appearance is charming and witty, he lacks depth of character. Henry reveals his character through flirtations with Julia and Maria Bertram.
Another reason is that there is no such thing as perfection so therefore everything can always be better. The three poems that I am comparing are ‘To His Coy Mistress’, Andrew Marvell (1621-78), ‘The Sick Rose’, William Blake (1757-1827) and ‘Sonnet 138’, William Shakespeare (1564-1616) None of the poems portray a romantic idea of love, but more the dark side of it. Each shows a different aspect of love. However they all show that love is not perfect. Although each poem deals with the imperfect nature of love, they each have their own diverse theme.
