7. Shakespeare portrays the noblemen in the play as gallant but also cowards. While they follow through with what they originally decide to believe in, in the end, they are left questioning their motives. While I commend them for following through with their original endeavors, they begin to get rather brutal. An example is when Antony creates a hit list and says that, “these many, then, shall die; their names are pricked,” (4.1.1-2). The noblemen want to be noble and honorable, yet they go to such brutal extremes.
“The world is made up of two classes - the hunters and the huntees.” In the short story ‘The Most Dangerous Game’ which was written by Richard Connell there are two main characters, Rainsford and General Zaroff.

Richard Connell uses irony, theme and characterization to develop the plot and characters. The use of these literary devices suggests that Connell wanted to make the story more interesting and suspenseful so the reader can enjoy reading it.

One example of situational irony in the SpongeBob episode is when SpongeBob broke into a house to teach a lesson. In the video, SpongeBob sees a house with an open window and decides to break-in to teach the people inside a lesson about not leaving their windows open. It is models situational irony because the audience wouldn’t expect SpongeBob to teach a lesson by committing a crime.

This quote reflects upon a literary technique consistently used throughout the memoir, irony. What the RUF boy said appears ironic to me because he carries the same exact desire for revenge just as Baeh does, blaming the death of his family on the army.

As Baeh seek revenge for the lives of his family members that perished during the war, he end up attacking many villages and destroying the lives of many rebels and innocent civilians. In the end, both sides achieve nothing because the rebels are killing Baeh’s people because Baeh keeps on killing theirs.
