Poverty, bad government, and social condemnationn are attacking everyone not of the upper class in France. Society is degrading everyone for everything. Hugo’s novel Les Miserables is not useless because it shows the readers that change is everywhere and unavoidable. Through degradation and condemnation, Jean Valjean because a completely different creature who looses the morals he once held for himself. Deprived of the only three joys she has (her daughter Cosette, her hair, and her beautiful smile), Fantine becomes a wretched prositute from the caring, warm-hearted person she once is.

All the suspense and mystery in this story really grabbed the readers’ attention. Each chapter had its own story beneath the main one. Like a puzzle with each piece a different chapter. Not knowing where the piece goes or what the big picture will turn out become. Dickens planned all of this to make a twisted story full of switches and secrete meetings.
Joan in the mean time grew anxious for the Prince and for France as her voices were urging her to hurry and help Prince Dauphin get crowned King of France and save her country from the English. After Joan is proven fit, she is finally allowed to meet her Prince and finds that he is a weak-willed individual that is not inclined to make any decisions, least of all to put forth the effort to go to Reims and be crowned the King of France. Joan does convince him into letting her go out into the battle fields and help lead the soldiers to a victory. Joan was fulfilling a prophecy that said that “having been through a woman (the wicked plots of Dauphin’s Mother), would be restored by a girl from Lorraine.” In battle Joan was smart and brave and gave the men hope that they could turn the war around. Joan dictated letters to the English generals that she did not want to hurt them and that they should go home, but they ignored her and she fought them till they turned and ran.
In A Tale of two cities, Dickens uses coincidences throughout the entire novel. He does this to fuel the plot and to catch the reader’s attention. He includes these coincidences in very strategic methods which strengthen the overall plot of A Tale of Two Cities and to tie the characters together. It is a very controversial topic of whether coincidences strengthen or weaken the plot. It has been determined that the result really depends on how the author choses to include such coincidences.
I will explore these qualities, which make this a good suspense story. The methods of creating tension include leaving characters anonymous, using similar gesticulation and supposed 'coincidences,' plus many others. Throughout this essay, I will explain all of these methods.cogd gdr segdgdw orgd gdk ingd fogd gd; The author of this short story was a man named Charles Dickens who wrote during the 19th century.

They both had a sense of honor and were full of love and idealism. These virtues, honor, love and idealism, that seek to sustain life, end up destroying them. Romeo and Juliet become victims of their own fate because they carry everything to the highest standards and are too inexperienced to decide the fate of the love between them. Romeo had honor as his virtue, which caused him to fight Tybalt for killing Mercutio: Romeo. …My very friend, hath got this mortal hurt / In my behalf – my reputation stained / With Tybalt’s slander – Tybalt, that an hour… / And in my temper softened valor steel!
Those ten years while they were apart, Clytaemestra had time to let all of her anger and hostility boil up inside of her. He was portrayed as an arrogant man. Another thing that condemned him was when he walked on the purple carpet. “She knew that by saying “If Priam had won as you have, what would he have done?”(935). Even though his wife coaxed him, his cowardliness in doing so shows his true side.
Perhaps he was mad with grief over the death of his wife, as seen in Act III Scene III, " No man bears sorrow better, Portia is dead" (413). In the end, he took his own life, in violation of his stoic philosophy. "Do so; and not let no man abide this deed but we the doers." (384) Here in Act III, Brutus appears high-minded, but his principles did not seem to prepare him for dealing with a corrupt world. Despite the honorable thoughts conspirators may have had toward Brutus, he was was plagued with stoicism and loved Rome more than Caesar, which leaded to Caesar's death.
