    ... stands the importance of family duty. When Tony meets Morten Schwarzkopf she is still a silly, egocentric child. It is not until they discuss life and politics, particularly the reality of "sitting on the stones", that Tony begins to see things from an external perspective. "Sitting on the stones" is a metaphor that means that no matter what, one must always do things one would rather not do, but must because they have to be done. Morten says that Tony will "as Madame Such-and-such ... will vanish for good and all into your elegant world and ... it's off to sit on the stones for the rest of one's life."

It is not enough to be brave. Antigones character has many different layers. In some respects, she is a heroine, but in others, she is merely a victim of her own pride.

This statement could be seen as derogatory of Elizabeth, but if viewed from Darcy's point of view it can as well be his honest opinion that one should not make fun of and take lightly everything that goes on in life. It does not necessarily have to be a personal attack, which Elizabeth perceives it to be. Because Elizabeth's attitude towards Darcy is so much prejudiced in the first part of the book, one is inclined to see allusions and implications in everything they both say. This general mood of suspicion makes the reader of course much more alert and ready to discover ironies in the conversati ...

For the first time in two centuries, foreigners could enter Japan and Japanese citizens could leave.

    Pride PRIDE Any great accomplishment can make someone feel proud about their work. It makes one feel good; it raises a person's spirits. "No question, pride has its good points." (The Toronto Star, Nov 1999) Then again, there are also the bad points of pride one must consider, before being proud. Pride can deceive a person into being ambitious, and make them strive for something that is not rightfully theirs. Both Macbeth and Willy encountered this problem. Pride can also cause a bad relationship with the people one loves most. For Macbeth and Willy, their relationships with their families were burdened as a consequence of this pride. Pride can lead to much worse things; it can put a person ...

  • Pride And Prejudice - 1,386 words
    Pride And Prejudice In her novels, Jane Austen employs the timelessly effective characterization agents of dialogue, action, and point of view to cleverly manipulate the reader's emotions towards the characters. Austen successfully creates heroins in a time that it was not social acceptable to think of women in a heroic role. She is so successful in applying these characterization techniques in her story lines that she molds a positive feeling towards strong females without the reader even realizing the influence the author's agents have had, at the same time creating a very entertaining story. In Pride and Prejudice as well as Mansfield Park for example, Jane Austen creates characters who a ...

    Pride and Prejudice The passage which best relates the theme of Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austin, is on page 125, in the middle of the page.

It is evident from every point of the story that all people care about is marrying into a higher social rank. And even for those who are comfortable with their current status, it is imperative that they only marry someone of at least ...
