The thought of revenge on a "birbaro marido" (1564) who has committed adultery after his marriage to her, entices her into believing that "los imposibles parecen / ficiles" (1566-67) (Everett W. Hesse 1997) . While she occupies herself with the thought of a secret revenge, she is overcome by the fear of the Duke 's justice and so restrains herself for the present, convinced that "... mayor fuera / mi desatino, si diera / puerta a tan loca pasión" (1573-75) (Everett W. Hesse 1997). In the second act Lope portrays Casandra in a warm and sympathetic light, Casandra tells Lucrecia that the Duke spends nights away from home, that it is all you can expect from men that the world allows it, she proclaims that he spends none of his nights with her and that she would be better off as a simple farmers wife ‘en aquella humilde esfers como en las camas reales se gozan contentos tales que no les crece el valor si los efectos del amor son en las noches iguales’(Everett W. Hesse 1997). From this it is impossible not to feel sympathy for Casandra, she has been forced into this horrible marriage by her father a man whom she loves but evidently can no longer trust. She has lost all faith in men due
The Seven Deadly Sins, also known as the capital vices or cardinal sins, are pride, lust, envy, wrath, gluttony, sloth and avarice. The seven deadly sins are a grouping and classification of Catholic vices. These sins are often thought to be abused or excessive versions of one’s natural faculties or passion. Now even though these sins are not directly listed in the Bible, many believers still count them as the sins you must avoid or sins that the Lord hates or disapproves. Today’s modern knowledge, we have learned that there are far worse sins than the listed seven deadly sins.
You loved me, John Proctor, and whatever sin it is, You love me yet! John, pity me, Pity me!”(1099). This means she thought John loved her which led her to be angry and to start blaming people to be witches because she wants to be pitied. This point seems convincing enough for John to be blamed but Abigail is the one who makes up the fake story and admits to doing witchcraft but later on saying she was saved and started to blame the others who had nothing to do with the situation.This is why Abigail Williams is most responsible for the uncontrollable witchcraft situation in
Lady Macbeth questions Macbeth’s manhood when he had doubts towards killing Duncan, saying “When you durst do it, then you were a man; and, to be more than what you were, you would be so much more the man”(1.5.46-48).When Lady Macbeth’s ambition to be queen begins to overpower her morals and her ability to see the wrongs of her actions, she becomes furious that Macbeth is not as driven to kill Duncan as she is. Lady Macbeth also acts as an instigator when she exclaims “I have given suck and know how tender ‘tis to love the babe that milks me. I would, while it was smiling in my face, have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums and dashed the brains out, had I so sworn as you have done to this.” (1.5.55-60) to Macbeth, guilting and pushing him to murder Duncan. She insists that Macbeth promised that he would be king, and that he needs to kill Duncan in order to take the throne and fulfill his promise to her, because she would go to just as drastic of measures to fulfill a promise to him. Lady Macbeth’s instigation and ambition to be queen corrupts Macbeth and pushes him to kill

In Hold Up, Beyoncé somehow found a way to continue to love her husband, even with all of the grief he has put her through. Amy Winehouse’s, You Know I’m No Good, she clearly states that she is the toxic one in the relationship and that even though she is an adulterer, she still longs for her partner. And lastly, Shakespeare’s sonnet 152, he expresses that he wants to continue an affair with a married woman, because he is egotistical and greedy. Not everyone walking this earth has pure intentions at heart, when it comes to things like love and these songs and sonnets prove that. Love is not always effervescent and alluring, it can be gloomy and full of malicious
The author thought that marriage was to be made of a combination of love, affection and compatibility of character, just as the engagement between Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy. Thus, she punished women who took wrong decisions when it came to marriage, as Lydia, who escaped from her family just to get married to George Wickham in a sudden and not very clever act – she clearly was decided just for passion and not for rational thinking. Jane Austen also punished women who got married for convenience, as Charlotte, who got engaged to Mr. Collins just to ensure her future and a stable economic status. At the very beginning, Charlotte Lucas was delighted for her engagement and forthcoming matrimony, but within a short period of time, she does not feel that happiness for her marriage, just as Austen declares in the novel: “his marriage was now fast approaching, and she (Mrs Lucas) was at length so far resigned as to think it inevitable, and even repeatedly to say in an ill-natured tone she ‘wished they might be happy ’” (Austen, 1813:
