Conformity and Convenience in Friedrich Durrenmatt’s The Visit

- Friedrich Durrenmatt’s epic tragicomedy The Visit is a haunting commentary on the nature of mankind and morality. Bringing to the surface many questions about the difference between justice and revenge, the play is constructed in a way that leaves the reader at once perplexed and conflicted. The difference between right and wrong is often overlooked and even contorted in order to conform with convenience as the citizens of the town become more desperate. The Visit is both a philosophical masterpiece and a harrowing tale of conditional morality....   [tags: Friedrich Durrenmatt]

Visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Viewing the Asian Art Collections

A Visit From The Goon Squad By Jennifer Egan

- Specific aspects within A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan uniquely shape how it works as a novel. The loosely connected characters, different points of view, the use of the PowerPoint slides, and postmodern language all play important roles in the style in which this novel is written. Egan designs a “web,” which weaves each character in connection with the others as the story unfolds. As we follow the characters throughout the story, we see how they have changed and matured as they go from point “A to B.” The characters’ connections as we follow their stories constantly develop as the novel moves across time periods in their lives....   [tags: Character, Novel, Thomas Pynchon, Science fiction]

Comparing Ethics of Responsibility in The Visit and The Oresteia

- The Visit and The Oresteia: Ethics of Responsibility       When Friedrich Durrenmatt wrote the play The Visit, he was doing so in response to what he saw as appalling neutrality on the part of the Swiss during World War II, neutrality that we now know was something more insidious.  This powerful play expresses what happens in a community where responsibility is abdicated and scapegoating is employed, what happens when mercy falls to vengeance in the name of justice.  It is a play designed to shock society into recognizing its own flaws and choosing a different course of action, a different way to be.  Today I would like to briefly describe how this play and its connections help...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Provision of Intervension to Prevent Family Breakdown

It is argued that it is best done within the family home (Hobart and Frankel, 2004). However, it is not possible to do this with this case. Subsequently, additional evidence of attachment, children's behaviour and personal strengths can be obtained outside of the family environment, which tends to be neglected in the home assessment (Holland, 2011)....   [tags: case study]
