Undoubtedly, Beatty is the novel’s number one advocate for censorship (in the form of burning books), however, he insinuates that he is actually an avid reader. Although he claims to hate books, as well as that every book he has read made him unhappy, these statements do not aline with his actions. To demonstrate, Beatty quotes several books throughout the novel, and prior to the raid of Montag’s home, Beatty enters a frenzied state, quoting books left and right, and speaking in a delusional manner. If books upset him so much, why would Beatty read to the point of being able to perfectly quote numerous? Subsequent to burning Montag’s home, Beatty (empty handed) taunts Montag (armed with a flame thrower),edges him on, saying.
The character of John Procter in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible was a great example of a truly tragic hero. He measured up to every one of Aristotle’s requirements. He was not a perfect person because he had many faults and was not completely good or bad. Best of all, he knew that he was not perfect and he recognized and regretted the errors that he made throughout his life. Then, after the reader stays with Procter while he confessed all of his horrible sins for the whole town to hear, he had was a massive downfall as the result.
The plot thickens act by act and the unbelievable climax at the end of each one urges reader to keep reading and audience to keep watching. The writer often ridicules the Birling family using hindsight and dramatic irony. He makes Mr. Birling say laughable things that make him (in the audience's eyes) absolutely foolish.

He was the unwanted voice of conscience in his age, a man unafraid to point out the lies with which a civilization comforts itself. Sophocles gives us heroes, and Aeschylus gives us a vision of history and teleology; Euripides gives us real men and women with all-too human weaknesses, and his visions are often nightmares.
This means that if there were any more trouble someone would pay with his or her life. Therefore, the very first part of the play informs the reader that violence and hate are significant in the book. Tybalt is a traditional "Capulet", he loves to pick a fight with his enemy, the Montagues, and he is not afraid to kill. He shows this when he says, "To strike Romeo dead I hold it not a sin". We can also see from Tybalts character that he enjoys fighting for he hates the word peace, as he "hates hell all Montagues and thee".
Macbeth says that Banquo’s royalty of nature should be feared, through this we are able to understand that Macbeth is evidently lost his grasp on his moral conscience and begins to take down any threat he sees, even if that threat is his best friend. Macbeth goes on to refer to Banquo as his enemy and although he could kill him himself, he fears to offend mutual friend they may have (III, i, 115 – 120). Macbeth then orchestrates the murder of Banquo and Fleance showing no remorse. Macbeth tells Lady Macbeth that she should appear innocent and act nicely as to not draw any suspicion to themselves. “Be innocent of the knowledge, dearest chuck, till thou applaud the deed…” (III, ii, 46 – 47).
His curses are of the tamest kind, though, "damn", "hell", "crap", "ass", and he curses so self-consciously and so consistently that the words lose most of their vulgarity. Most of the cursing in the book would not even be rated PG-13 if it were in a movie. The word "fuck" appears three or four times at the end of the book (201-204). Holden is as shocked by the word as the reader and he spends the ... ... middle of paper ... ...ubversion of power that is constantly expressed in this book that people want to suppress. Holden Caufield is the child trying desperately not to grow up into a "phony".
In other words, Claudius is telling Laertes that he grieves for Polonius’s death also, and says he is innocent as much as the sun shines. As Amanda Mabillard mentions, “Claudius represents the worst in human nature -- lust, greed, corruption, and excess”.

Their plan will backfire, eventually, but Puck is the only one who survives from his. The villains are iconic in their own right, and play a very important within their individual plays.
Everyone will be saddened and confused, looking for answers on how their King died. In the last lines of the soliloquy, Macbeth gives the sole reason he has for the murder, “I have no spur / To prick the sides of my intent, but only / Vaulting ambition, which o'erleaps itself / And falls on th' other.” (I.7.25-28). Macbeth says that he has absolutely no reason to kill Duncan, except for his ambition. Shakespeare then personifies his ambition as overleaping which falls over itself. This also foreshadows Macbeth’s death.
When Tom first meets Willie, it is an awkward experience for Tom, and a frightening experience for Willie as to Willie Mr Tom ‘was a towering giant with skin like coarse, wrinkled brown paper and a voice like thunder’.

Well, I think you're wrong, I think you have something inside of you that is worth a great deal."
