At this part Pip tries to compliment Estella and she laughs right in his face. "'I live quite pleasantly there; at least-'It appeared to me that I was losing a chance. 'At least?' repeated Estella. 'As pleasantly as I could anywhere away from you.'
“I am the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life.” (16) Holden Caulfield is a good liar. Holden even admits to it. Many people might say that this is setting a bad example but throughout story his lies make people feel better. For example, when Holden was ... ... middle of paper ... ...ain is “fuck you”. Even though Holden always uses these words, he doesn’t want his younger sister being exposed to that kind of profanity.
William Wilson is a guy with very high self-esteem, who was given carte blanche or in other words who always felt free to do whatever he wants without real consequences. His only weakness was hearing his name. He hated it for being such simple and common. “…upon the day of my arrival, a second William Wilson came also to the academy, I felt angry with him for bearing the name, and doubly disgusted with the name because a stranger b... ... middle of paper ... ...hat is how two the relationship of two different people with their alter-ego ends. We not always go by our wants and desires.
It is never Lennie’s fault. Slim and George also converse about Lennie’s faultless nature when they say, “’He ain’t mean,’ said Slim. ‘I can see Lenne ain’t a bit mean.’/’’Course he ain’t mean. But he gets in trouble alla time because he’s so…dumb’” (41). The murder of Curley’s wife is just another instance of Lennie’s stupidity getting the better of him.
Both speakers used an ethical appeal to the crowd and established their credibility first. Brutus starts off by saying he was Caesar’s friend, and he loved him, but because Ceasar was “ambitious” he had to “slew” him. Brutus knew that everyone in town thought he was an honorable man and he used that to establish his credibility, unlike Antony, who was thought to be a play boy, not serious about anything. He had to work harder to gain the crowd’s attention. The first sentence out of his mouth was that he was here to “bury Caesar, not to praise him” which is a great way to start since most of the people didn’t like Caesar at the time and didn’t want to listen to some silly friend of Caesar’s say wonderful things about him.
Mr. Patch-Withers ask him about the shirt and Finny told him the meaning of the shirt. As he explained the substitute headmaster became more amused about the situation and allowed Finny to get away with breaking the school dress code. After this instance Gene admitted to being envious of Finny in this Quote, “I was beginning to see that Phineas could get away with anything. I couldn’t help envying him that a little, which is perfectly normal. There was no harm in envying your best friend a little.” (18) In this quote Gene is just saying that he envies his best friend for some thing that he can’t do.
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. Coincidentally enough, that downfall came from his trying to do something about his errors and sticking up for himself and his beliefs. He did something great, which anyone with a heart would pity him for. Being a real and relatable character is another one of Aristotle’s tragic hero requirements and John Procter was most definitely one of those types of characters. The faults and imperfections of John Procter were clear.
Such enduring and steady refection transformed the Creature into a genuine beast and the vindictive killer of little William. The animal was not conceived a beast but rather the contempt of men made him one. Everybody he swung to detested him, despised to no end. Also, when he swung to Frankenstein asking for a mate he heard the words that slaughtered the last "additions of trust" in the profundity of his heart: "Fiend do you set out approach me? Be gone, despicable creepy crawly!
No harm in him, but just silly." Paul is the most important one among them because of two reasons: He is not as clever and reasonable as the others and he is the one who was killed Jim Kendall. Of course these do not prove that the killing of Jim is on purpose. However there are some more reasons that can cause Paul kill Jim on purpose. As we understood from what is told, Paul is fall in love with Julie although she just feels pity on him : "The poor boy was crazy about Julie and she always treated him mighty nice and made him feel like he was welcome, though of course it wasn’t nothing but pity on her side" But according to Paul, Jim never treated her right.
However, as we discover in the play, the word ‘honest’ doesn’t have a very clear meaning to it because it is always used to describe the wrong people (Iago). Either way, all these techniques work in alliance with one another. A rogue like Iago is hard to get the better of because his methods are very Machiavellian – he is seen as ‘honest Iago’ by all, but talks to all the characters individually, according to the necessary way to manipulate them. Iago managed to kill many people (including him). I would say that a merciless and persistent scoundrel is the only way to describe Iago.
