The fantasy story gives an account of unusual happenings of the life of Alice. She starts by following a rabbit into a hall in which she becomes big, small and later to her normal size only to find herself in the midst of animals, with whom she has to learn how to communicate to. Just as in the poem, the creativity of the storyteller is seen as he tries to change the size of Alice to attract the audience. The author targets young children and in order not to make them frightened with his story, he corrects the size of Alice immediately after she grows big.
In literal reality, children should not suffer like old people do. This is the reason as to why in the poem, it is the old man who dies while in the short story, the child comes out as a winner as she is not afraid of the jury and always manages to bring her size back to normal. The best instance is shown when she has to balance the mushroom to bring her body size back to normal. This is also an indication that being a human being, she has to outdo the animals in knowledge.
Second, in both stories, the authors use the main character to expand the theme of materialism and need for material wealth. While Mathilde desire for material wealth, Connie’s obsession with music causes her to use the little amount of money, she gets from her parents to buy luxurious clothes that she found trendy and fashionable.
‘Recitatif’ addresses the issues of poverty touching on the issue of two young girls who are placed in an state children’s home as a result of their parent’s inability to take care of them. Moreover, it focuses on racial discrimination. The two girls, Twyla and Roberta belong to different racial groups.
In terms of character traits, it is apparent that Hamlet is a bit indecisive while Othello is quite spontaneous in his actions. When Hamlet gets an opportune moment to kill the man who had murdered his father, even after he had proved that it was him who did it beyond unreasonable doubt, he hesitates and does not do it.
The other themes that are manifest in both plays are revenge and betrayal. Hamlet, after the appearance of the ghost, develops a lifelong passion to avenge his father’s death by killing King Claudius, who betrayed his brother by killing him and marrying his wife before taking over his throne.
In comparing and contrasting Hamlet and Othello, one great similarity between the two is the fact that both of them are tragic plays. The protagonists in these plays, together with other major characters therein die disastrously.
That a crazed ruler could kill 6 million people while the world watched is unthinkable. Nonetheless, this is what happened, and the effect of the Holocaust was that first, a Jewish nation was formed a few years after the war.
While we may disagree with this radical view, question will be raised on the course of action that reflects Christ in our thoughts and actions. This then will lead us to the earlier conclusion that Christianity is characterized by broken communions. If we disagree with Williams’ explanation and acceptance of homosexuality and conform to this view we would have divided the communion (Higton, 148). Then if such a view is taken,
Williams’ argument is that morality is not limited, as it is not tied down to a uniform pattern that fits everyone. This is because the spirit does not ignore the particular nature of anyone but seeks the particularity aspect of human beings. Therefore it is an individual who can only answer the question to morality and therefore make the moral decision.
