She almost gives herself away because the urge to stand up for her daughter is so strong. (Just a suggestion) Another strong example of Arty’s love for his family is the way he feels about Iphy after Elly’s lobotomy. He also shows concern when Oly appears to have a boyfriend, and I don’t personally believe this is entirely because he is worried about losing her as a servant, though I suspect that weighed on him as well.
Some may even say George killed his friend in attempt to rid himself the burden of Lennie, or protect himself from trouble, but this is a senseless claim. George cared for Lennie in both a friendly and protective manner. George was looking out for Lennie, and only hoped for the best with him. It is unfair to claim George had such a hatred towards Lennie, when it so clearly shows George’s affection towards him. John Steinbeck shows how George is accepting of Lennie, despite everything he has done when he writes, “No, Lennie.
At first, it is evident Hester is mindful of Pearl’s father, since she will not reveal who is, an act that would submit him to shame as well. Hester isolates herself in sin; therefore, she isolates herself in the distant cottage. When Governor Bellingham attempts to move Pearl elsewhere, Hester knows she can depend on Dimmesdale to convince him otherwise because Dimmesdale is the father. Because Dimmesdale has assisted her, Hester concludes “there lay a responsibility upon her, in reference to the clergyman” (Hawthorne 125). Likewise, when they are by the brookside, it is confessed Hester “still so passionately” loves Dimmesdale.
Elizabeth tries to convince John to go and tell Abigail that she sleeps around to much, but he would not do it. Elizabeth seems like she does not sincerely forgive him. However, I do not blame her for not sincerely forgiving him because if it was my husband who cheated on me I could never forgive him. Only Jesus can forgive people for their sins they have committed. Jesus died for all of our sins.
Is John Proctor the man who has it all figured out? No John may seem like he is the man that is figured out, but when dug deeper that is not the case. Proctor in the book The Crucible plays the tragic hero, an honest, upright, and blunt speaker, he is a good man, but has a secret. Proctor shows him finding self-discoveries about himself, like how much he loves his wife, self-respect, and peace with himself. John Proctor loves his wife, this we already know but Proctor learned how much he loved her and what he was willing to do as mentioned in the play.
Abigail is consumed by the idea that John Proctor loves her. She considers that John’s kind actions towards her are more than just lust. Her acknowledgement that it would be a sin for him to love another woman besides his wife reveals that she believes that John Proctor has such deep feelings for her, which are undeniable no matter how wrong it may be. Though Abigail appears to be caught up in her idea of their forbidden love, her romanticized obsession is not enough to prove that her actions are completely motivated by her obsession of
In a way, these sacrificial actions assisted the two teenagers to uncover their true feeling for each other. First off, Juliet tells Romeo she would sacrifice her family’s name for their love declaring, “Oh, Romeo, Romeo, where for thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name. Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love, and I’ll no longer be a Capulet”(2.2.33-36). Shockingly, Juliet would deny her father and family name because she knows that the love she shares with Romeo is worth a risk.
Baggini further states, “Without the passion, it is mere dedication. Without nurturing, even the best can wither and die.” Romeo feels like he has nothing to live for because his love does not love him back. Romeo feels like nothing if he is not loved back because he feels that he needs to be nurtured and loved back. So I do not believe that Romeo is acting like the typical person would. He is so distraught in his own interpretation of love that he cannot see it for what it truly is and it is confusing and hurting
I say Gurov’s constant dishonesty about his true feelings toward his wife is a prime example of a selfish lie. I believe Gurov is fully aware of how morally wrong his actions are, but nonetheless, it is apparent he does not care. I assert that the reason he continues to lie to his wife is because he feels that he is a “superior being” in comparison to women, and as a result of this belief, it has allowed him to view his wife as weak and inferior, and dismissing feelings of attachment to her. When one regards another person as being physically or intellectually weaker and inferior, I feel it is easy for a the liar to take advantage of the weaker person because the latter is viewed as not worthy of the same dignity or respect as “superior” people;
Dimmesdale, the admired minister of the Puritan community, spends years hiding that he committed adultery with Hester, and doesid so to protect the Puritans. However, the minister hurt himself in the process, as he feelst unworthy due to his inauthenticity. Hawthorne also depicts the Puritan people as rigid, and unable to accept the world as it truly is. Although Dimmesdale demonstrates an altruistic motivation in concealing his sin, Hawthorne uses the community’s stubborn manipulation of perspective and Dimmesdale’s continuous suffering to argue that no matter the intention, concealment is pointless. As Dimmesdale conceals his sin to protect the Puritan people, he suffersed for years and hurts himself continuously, portraying the negative effects of concealment.
