Scene Ii Lines Appearance And Reality
469 wordsNo one who can truly understand Shakespeare can be shocked because everything we want and everything we do not want is contained within; it is mans ultimate truth.

The Unfulfilled Fairytale In Dickens Great Expectations
909 wordsIn some ways, Charles Dickens Great Expectations is a disappointing novel because its rags-to-riches story remains unfulfilled. The victory that Dickens secures in the novel however, is more important, as it captures the truth that fairytales are fantasy. Dickens gives Pip a chance to become more than he is, only to have him reverted back to the old Pip in order to covey a moral message about false expectations. Throughout the novel, Dickens makes a direct contrast between appearances and realit...
