Imperefct Charity in Bartleby, the Scrivener

- One typically displays acts of charity for the love of mankind or benefit of society. However, differentiating whether a generous deed reflects altruistic behavior or selfishness can be difficult. In Herman Melville's "Bartleby, the Scrivener," the lawyer performs charitable conduct toward Bartleby to acquire self-approval and an honorable conscience. The lawyer employs Bartleby, a lifeless man, as a copyist for his law firm. In the beginning of his employment, Bartleby works efficiently.

William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing

- William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing Benedick certainly seems to be genuine, as all of his speeches seem to be sincere and none pre-meditated. Benedick is the character everyone likes. He seems also to be more passionate than most of the other characters. Benedick is prepared to be humiliated by his friends in order to marry the one which he loves. He is a proud man and does not want to be outdone by a woman, but he will do anything for Beatrice. I think that when the two had verbal insult matches they were just trying to vie for each others attention....   [tags: Free Essays]

Psychological Breakdown in Strindberg's The Father

- Psychological Breakdown in Strindberg's The Father *Works Cited Not Included In Strindberg's The Father, we witness a string of actions that brings a sane and happy man to the point of utter lunacy in the span of twenty-four hours. While I think the play as a whole is less convincing in terms of its naturalism (perhaps very much due to the way it immediately dates itself), it does very fluidly connect the actions bringing about this psychological breakdown. To begin, the Captain lives in a house surrounded by women, of whom as a race he is rather untrusting....   [tags: Papers]

Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare

- Fate or choice. Choice or fate. How does one separate these ideals. Can one. Shakespeare could not. Nor can we. Fate and choice are so intertwined that our choices determine our fate, and our fate determines our choices. William Shakespeare trusts the audience to scrutinize whether it is fate or choice that rules our human life. Shakespeare aptly conveys this oxymoron (with which people have been dealing for ages) through the evidence and structure of his play, Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare, through the dialogue and action of his characters, readily provides the evidence that both choice and fate are integral parts of human life....   [tags: fate or choice?]
