The Virtues of Horatio in William Shakespeare's Play

- Throughout literature, there a character who provides a moral compass for other characters. In William Shakespeare's Hamlet, Horatio’s character seems fairly simple: somewhat of a “yes-man” to Hamlet, often agreeing with anything Hamlet says. However, at the end of the play we understand his significance, as he is one of the last survivors. This transition is unexpected because for most of the play, Horatio is a reserved character and doesn’t speak very often. Despite this, it is clear that Horatio and Hamlet’s friendship is extremely deep, and Hamlet trusts Horatio more than anybody....   [tags: shakespeare, hamlet, horatio]

Madness and Ambition in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar

- “Even the noblest men can be seduced by power; it has the power to kill, to distort, and to corrupt” Through this passage, Matthew Sims captures in essence how individuals often turn to betrayal and deception in order to gain their heart’s desires.

Savage or Civilized: Is There a Difference?

The Hero in Paradise Lost by John Milton

Since Milton's overall theme stated in the opening lines of Book I is to relate 'Man's first disobedience' and to 'justify the ways of God to men', Adam must be regarded as the main hero. John M. Steadman supports this view in an essay on "Paradise Lost:" "It is Adam's action which constitutes the argument of the epic." Steadman continues: The Son and Satan embody heroic archetypes and that, through the interplay of the infernal and celestial strategies, Milton represents Satan's plot against man and Christ's resolution to save him...   [tags: Papers]
