Is Shylock More Sinned Against Than Sinning?

- There are many sides to this argument. The first is that Shylock does not sin at all, the second is that all the characters sin as much as each other, the third that Shylock is the only one who sins, the fourth that they all sin, but Shylock sins the most making the above statement false, and the fifth way of arguing it is to agree with the statement. Shylock may sin when he makes the contract with Antonio saying that he must pay back the 3000D within 3months if he lends it to him, or he can take 1lb of flesh from his body, but it is not clear whether he wants to harm Antonio because he claims to want “Only friendship”....   [tags: Free Merchant of Venice Essays]

Greene's Exploration of the Paradox ofThe Sinner is Often the Saint

- Greene's Exploration of the Paradox ofThe Sinner is Often the Saint "The Sinner is often the Saint" - In order to come to terms with this paradox the reader must be aware of the definitions of the words 'sinner' and 'saint'. As it is understood today, a 'saint' is one who transgresses God's known will. Greene uses the character of Scobie in his novel 'The Heart of the Matter' to explore the paradox in the above statement. However, once the reader is quite aware of these definitions, it can be said that Scobie is a mixture of both, and this concept is implied implicitly through the paradox itself....   [tags: Papers]

- J Cole’s second studio album, Born Sinner, runs for fifty-nine minutes and twenty-eight seconds; however, its effect on an audience is indelible. The album implements a clever duality between reflection at sin and rejoice at morality. Furthermore, the album is bifurcated so that the sin occupies the beginning of the album and the morality occupies the end of it. The sum of these parts results in more than a collection of songs, but a cry of spiritual expression. Cole skillfully employs seriality in order to plant specific themes of sin, God, life, and morality into the listener’s mind....   [tags: Emotion, Feeling, God, Rhetorical question]
