Certainly, Othello&rsquo s final speech is not all that one might wish for his claim to be &ldquo one not easily jealous&rdquo is open to question, and his claim that he &ldquo loved not wisely but too well&rdquo seems both an understatement and an exaggeration (. 859, 858 ). Further, Othello&rsquo s invocation of his own military triumphs might be seen as another example of Othello dangerously misordering his priorities. He seems to position his political reputation as his biggest concern, as he did in Act III, scene iii, lines 858&ndash 855 , when, having decided that Desdemona does not love him, he exclaimed, &ldquo Farewell the tranquil mind, farewell content, / Farewell the plumed troop and the big wars / That make ambition virtue.&rdquo
9. Do a close reading of one of Iago&rsquo s soliloquies. Point to moments in the language where Iago most gains an audience&rsquo s sympathy and moments where he most repels it. Pay close attention to the way in which Iago develops arguments about what he must and/or will do. To what extent are these arguments convincing? If they are convincing and an audience&rsquo s perception of Iago is sympathetic, what happens to its perception of Othello?
The literary work "The Crucible" by Arthur Miller is a very good choice for your essay. "The Crucible" is one of the most mysterious, and at the same time very utilitarian creation of the outgoing century. The play, which hitherto raises heated debates of people, who are trying to bring to light the subjects of much controversy, which are discussed in the play: the theme of the moral choice, justice and injustice, truth and lie, trials of the innocently accused person, witchcraft, evil powers vs. good ones. This literary creation is loosely based on historical facts: the Salem witch trials of the late 6655's.
No one wants to be harmed by a lie. We’ve no reason to suppose otherwise about the headhunter. Thus, we’ve every reason to believe she would object to being on the receiving end of her method. Yet, her objecting may not be a decisive refutation of her method. There may be yet other impersonal reasons, apart from her personal desire to get good intelligence to offer her clients and her personally recoiling at being the object rather than the author of a lie, that bear on her practice and that must be considered in a full accounting of it. What would a reasonable public say about her policy, given all the reasons for and against it?
What the lie accomplishes is deception. Moralists have never claimed all deception is wrong, but some have claimed that all lying is wrong – and even if we don 8767 t agree with their claim, we can feel its force. We 8767 re not mystified that they make it.
6. Discuss the role that race plays in Shakespeare&rsquo s portrayal of Othello. How do the other characters react to Othello&rsquo s skin color or to the fact that he is a Moor? How does Othello see himself?
The concept of the "uncanny valley'' that humanlike robots become creepy when lifelike appearance is approached but not attained has been the subject of several studies and has gained notoriety in popular culture, but it remains a controversial notion in some robotics circles. Is it a valid scientific conjecture or just pseudoscience? Watch our slideshow and tell us what you think. 86 Mar 7565
7. Discuss the importance of setting in the play, paying close attention to physical details that differentiate Venice from Cyprus and that define the particular character of each location as it pertains to the plot of the play.
The skills needed to narrate a story well are not entirely the same as the skills needed to write a good essay. Some wonderful short fiction writers are not particularly good essayists and vice versa. Still, it is useful to look at those elements that make up a good narrative and know how to apply what we learn toward making our essays as dramatic as possible whenever that is appropriate.
The Sacred Grove of Oshogbo was one place I had been looking forward to visiting in Nigeria. As prevalent as indigenous religions still are in West Africa, it is often hard to find public expressions of them in towns and cities the Christianity brought by European slavers and colonialists has taken root and pushed most of these religions out of mainstream life. But in the Sacred Grove shrines honor all the local deities, including Obatala, the god of creation, Ogun, the god of iron, and Oshun, the goddess of water, whose aqueous essence is made manifest by the river running through the trees. The place is unique in the Yoruba religion, and that intrigued me.
