Perhaps the husband was insensitive to her needs. The narrator continues to write in the journal and constantly talks about the yellow wallpaper as she loses her sanity. She finally breaks after seeing a woman under the wallpaper. He husband is stunned in the last paragraph when she says to him, “’I 've got out at last,’ said I, ‘in spite of you’”.

When Reverend Parris watched this madness, a whirl of lies and unnecessary blame surrounds the girls. Elizabeth Proctor gets caught up in her husband’s mess when he commits adultery with the ring leader of the girls, Abigail Williams. Arthur Miller's play The Crucible shows that forgiving yourself and others is key in relationships. In the beginning, Elizabeth Proctor’s relationship with her husband John is very awkward. Going against the Ten Commandments back in Puritan times was considered one of the worst things you could do and would have deadly consequences.

The structure of Mew's poem features a dramatic monologue that reiterates the peculiar relationship 'betwixt' the Farmer and the bride. Consequently the bride "turned afraid of love and him and all things human." The rule of three amplifies her fear of sex and his presence. Furthermore, the repetition of "and" elongates the phrase to emphasise her anxiety. This demands the readers to empathise with the bride.
It is known that loneliness sometimes makes us senseless. In Susan Glaspell’s “A Jury of her Peers” loneliness made Minnie Foster irrational. Mrs. Hale assumes that Mrs. Wright is guilty of killing her husband because of her nonchalant answers she gives when being interrogated about her husband’s location. During the story the reader will learn more about Mrs. Wright, or Minnie Foster, and how her personality changed drastically through her twenty years of marriage with John while Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters are covering up the tracks that they presume led to murder. They conclude that loneliness made her lose herself which is evident throughout the short story.
Character Foils In The Scarlet Letter Those who contrast each other make for engrossing storytelling. Nathaniel Hawthorne demonstrates this truth often in his romantic narrative, “The Scarlet Letter”. The novel tells a despondent tale of a woman convicted of adultery who must live out her shame condemned from society by the embroidered scarlet “A” she is commanded to wear while perpetually haunted by her estranged husband who is on a self proclaimed undertaking to find her lover. Through the text, the reader is hastened through a multitude of feelings for the few main characters they meet. Arthur Dimmesdale and Roger Chillingworth are a set of character foils through their opposing physical descriptions, contrasting mental states, and their driving motivations throughout the novel.
The effects of the tragic flaw gave bitterness between John and his wife, the truth of his adultery to his former house servant, Abigail Williams, and his execution leading him to become a tragic hero.

The second paragraph shows John Proctor confesses to having committed adultery with Abigail Williams, in order to save his wife and friends being tried for witchcraft.

In Act III he says “ you whore! You are lying”. He then tells the court about their love affair and how he committed adultery. It says in the definition of a tragic hero that “ This errors usually physically and spiritually wound the tragic hero.” You see how upset and ashamed John Proctor was over his actions.

This is encapsulated in Hamlet exclaims, “frailty, thy name is woman!” about his mother’s hasty marriage to her deceased husband’s brother (Shakespeare 1.2.150). In this quote, Hamlet is dismissing all women as weak-willed like he believes Gertrude to be, which affects his interactions with Ophelia also. Hamlet is cruel to her because of this anger he has towards women in general, so when pretending to be mad, he goes “full force in the misogynist rage” when telling her he used to love her, but now she should go to a nunnery (Traub 192). Ophelia can be seen as weak in this scene because she protests little against Hamlet and only hopes that his insanity will end. These crude comments Hamlet says to Ophelia continue throughout the play until Ophelia is being buried when Hamlet asserts that he loved Ophelia.
The first character trait a tragic hero must fulfill is to awake a feeling of pity and fear in the audience. This happens at the point where Hamlet is thinking about suicide were he gets an interesting character (Act 1 Scene 2 p.23, 25). Furthermore, Hamlet is tough, grief world and upset with his mother’s love life with her new husband Claudius. He also feels betrayed when his mother marries his fathers brother so soon after his father’s death and he says “she married. O, most wicked speed, to post/ With such dexterity to incestuous sheets!”.
In both novels, the Crucible and Ethan Frome, the main characters are stuck in pointless marriages, however revenge and love led the two plays into slightly different paths. In the crucible John Proctor has a seemingly miserable marriage with Elizabeth Proctor. She was an unhappy, depressing wife, and the cold house she kept led to John having an affair with the housekeeper Abigail Williams. Similarly in Ethan Frome, Ethan is married to a mean, sickly, and depressing wife, and found a way to escape from his misery through the housekeeper Mattie. We can see that in both plays, the two main characters are not happy with their marriages and lives, therefore they try to get away from them by having an affair with other women who seem to be their
In the story “The Dead” we realize that Gabriel’s marriage is horrible because the author uses imagery by comparing his marriage to “a petticoat string dangled on the floor.” The concept of the story is time. Some things that Gabriel says to show the reader that the concept is time is he says things like: “She had had that romance”, “Yes, yes that would happen very soon”, “ In the time of her first girlish beauty, a strange friendly pity for her entered his soul.” All these quotes says that Gabriel is tired of thinking in the past and he hates it. He looks into the future for guidance to become a better individual and a better husband. Imagery is widely used in this story. Imagery is used in this story to represent how traumatic
