However, at times his ideology can be rather harsh. One major example of Machiavelli's attitude is when he states, "I shall depart from the methods of other people" proving he conjures up new ideas about how a prince can be successful and also makes apparent his cocky demeanor (330). Another strong example of Machiavelli's outlook is when he states, "how one lives is so far distant from how one ought to live" showing he believes people are not getting their fair share (331). This proving Machiavelli's well-rounded attitude by thinking people deserve more than what they get. Finally Machiavelli states, "it is much safer to be feared than loved" making apparent his idea of being feared is a solid trait a prince must acquire to be successful (334).
Yet, fantasy is not unreal for any reason but the old one: the terms are counterdefined and a matched pair of a dichotomy - people think so. “The aim of psychoanalytic treatment is thus to (re)focus attention from factual accuracy to hysterical lies, which unknowingly articulate the truth” (37). Your truth in terms of, uh, ours. Whereas fantasy can be experienced as completely compelling reality, Žižek nearly denudes it of alternative associations and frameworks. For him, fantasy cannot take a hold any more important than one inhering to desire, the real, and all the rest.
In the narrative, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Stevenson makes a critique about how the expectation of men’s role by society restricts and limits men to identify their self. For instance, Dr. Jeyll creates two separate identities in order to enjoy the pleasures of life. Dr. Jekyll represents a respectable, successful, noble man in society, especially through his career as a doctor that describes the ideal Victorian men, while, his second identity as Mr. Hyde is savage, dwarfish and deform, which is labeled out of the norm in society. Dr. Jekyll illustrates a re... ... middle of paper ... ... to have a dual identity in Victorian society. Through Dr. Jekyll stevenson shows how a dual identity can become the tragedy of a person's life, while Wilde shows that it is not as opposite or far fetch from one's true identity.
His existence depends on this. And this is where I believe Sartre locates the meaning to mans' existence. According to Sartre mans' existence only takes on meaning through his actions. The Sartrian existentialist finds it extremely troubling that God does not exist because with Him vanishes all hope of finding values in an intelligible heaven. "As Dostoevsky once said, "If God did not exist, then everything would be permitted.
He defines his existence and that happens around him because man to a large extent is supposedly in control of his own destiny. What is the meaning of life's achievements if there is no existence? This question shines more light on the Jean-Paul Sartre's position when he wrote that "man starts a zero position, from nothing at all to something greater".

Existentialism is concerned with personality: Existentialists believed that a man's personality is directly linked to the level of freedom available to him.
With power, man loses his own ideals, perverts a utopian aim surpassing his own laws. Despite Moliere’s attempt to depict a true hypocrite in Tartuffe, he fails. Moliere’s Tartuffe is said to depict the true hypocrite because it’s main character Tartuffe, acts like a pious man while his intentions are in fact, very cruel. True to the definition of hypocrisy, Tartuffe’s actions are in complete disagreement with his thoughts. However, contrary to Gilde’s complete description of the word, Tartuffe has not ceased ‘to perceive his deception’.
Claiming that mixing with people he knows are not good company is a way in which he will impress others when he takes off his dissolute façade and be what he really is: honourable and great. This would win the affections of eth people, and his father’s admiration. This shows that he still knows the difference between right and wrong, and knows that he should act like a prince when he ought to be. But it may also come across to us as manipulative, because he deceives everyone, just for the sake of adding glory to his name with the contrast of his behaviours. Hotspur is a hot-tempered, impulsive man who is obsessed with the idea of honour, believing that honour comes from winning battles and having an untainted reputation.
The reader is led to think that Quintero is planning something for Don Juan and this increases the level of tension as the reader doesn't want anything bad to happen to Don Juan because he is the likeable character of the story. The characters in The Red Room are very different. The main character of The Red Room is also the narrator. He is presented as a very arrogant man because he tells us that "it will only take a very 'tangible' ghost to frighten me." This quote shows that he thinks he is brave and this is what makes the reader think he is arrogant.
For example, during an exchange with Walter, George looks “up at him with distaste, a little above it all,” displaying his delusional superiority (II: i, 69). This abominable demeanor creates a negative ambiance instead of that of a “good man.” On the contrary, Joseph Asagai’s kin... ... middle of paper ... ...o be perceived as a contemptible man, his later determination deems him worthy of a positive portrayal. In conclusion, whereas some of the personalities in “A Raisin in the Sun” are in agreement with J. Charles Washington’s definition of a “good man” and “good woman,” Hansberry also encounters it by incorporating a diversity of characters. George, Asagai, and Beneatha challenge the traditional criterions through their paradoxical natures and depictions, while Ruth complies with the society deemed guidelines. Walter’s peculiar combination of opposite portrayals also disputes the legitimacy of the orthodox classifications.
Dickens criticized the world of his own time because it valued the status of being a gentleman over someone doing a useful job. Those who thought they were gentlemen often mocked ordinary citizens. Show how he achieved these aims through the language used and his description of the way Pip and the other characters behaved in the novel. In his numerous literary works, Dickens strong sense of right and wrong, and his recognition of the many injustices present in Victorian Society are clearly displayed. There is no better an example of these strong set of ideals then those portrayed in his novel, Great Expectations, which tells the story of Pip, a young boy who is initially fooled into believing that material wealth is a substitute for the real moral values a gentleman should posses.
