Briony has changed as a person since the first time we see her, obviously. Though she probably has changed as a person, there are parts of her that remain the same. Her book of atonement is to apologize for negatively affecting Robbie's life by wrongfully accusing him of rape. But, while writing her book, she could have left out important details that she was probably ashamed of. She is an author and as an author she is also concerned with keeping the audience engaged and entertained, telling white lies were all in favor for the readers of the book.
What hurts Medea the most is that she ‘never did him wrong’ and that fact that Jason ‘[fell] in love with … royalty and power’ Despite everything Medea had done for Jason, he chose to turn his back on her, and go marry a royal princess. This causes Medea’s to feel a great deal of grief and sorrow, which then later pushes her to kill Creon and his daughter to reverse the feelings to make sure her husband also suffers for having done this to her. Even though Jason tries to win over Medea with vague promises for herself and the future for their children, Medea cannot accept that Jason has betrayed her and weeps as she says ‘I betrayed my own father, my own family to come here with you… and you have betrayed me…’ This indicates that Medea is experiencing both hatred and regret. She feels guilty because of the things she did to her own family and regrets choosing a disloyal man over her family. Medea sees herself as ‘foreign’ and powerless to stop Jason and therefore does whatever it takes to stop him and in her mind, justifies her
Despite the modest, accommodating lifestyle provided for her by her husband, Monsieur Loisel—a lowly clerk in the Ministry of Education—Madame Mathilde’s wants were never satiated. When one day Madame Mathilde is presented with an invitation to a party by her hopeful husband, he is immediately shot down by her cries, voicing how she is unable to present herself to such a formal party, as she had nothing to wear. In attempt to appease her, her husband agrees to her absurd request of 400 francs to buy a dress. Of course, even then we know that Madame Mathilde is yet to be
‘ I thought he knew something about breeding, but he wasn’t fit to lick my shoe’” (39). This clearly proves that she was not meant for him and she married him because he was nice, not because she loved him. She thought the best for her was to cheat on her husband with someone who has money, so she can get whatever she
Gil could also be a parallel to Gatsby because they both find love where it could never happen. Gatsby with the married Daisy who also has a child that he does not acknowledge, and Gil with adriana who is from a whole different time period than he is from. The second group of characters are the rich, like Inez and her parents as they parallel the Buchanans because they all are rich and care little about others but themselves. For example Inez says to Gil when he confronts her about cheating that “its whatever get over it”. She doesn't care about Gil or his feelings and she brushes the conversation off like it is nothing.
Paul 's mother Hester can be described as bitter at best. She was a pretty woman but that was as far as her beauty went. She did not really love her three children, but felt the need to keep up a sick facade of being a good rich mother. She lived a double life and valued keeping up her social position so much so that she felt the need to have servants despite not having the finances to do so. She also irritably claimed that the reason they had no money was because the kids ' father and her husband was an unlucky man.
Base on what I had interpret in the story, there was a lack of acceptance and lack of love happened in the marriage of Sayoko and her husband. Because if Sayoko 's husband really love her, he would not mind even if Sayoko will play her mole in front of him because he loves her, but in the case of them, Sayoko 's husband did not really love her and Sayoko was blinded by the hope that her husband would change. As I interpret the story, the mole served as the memory of Sayoko to her mother and sisters. It
Gurov is mostly focused on his personal needs; he does not care about her feelings because he is not even sure how this romance will continue. This fact about his lack of interest is supported by Gurov words when he saw her cry full of self-reproaches that she cheated on her husband. He just looked at her and based on the Cekhov´s description, ´´he was bored to death´´. She is also narrow-minded person who only cares about what society would think about her. She is very naive and inexperienced young lady for whom means moral values basically everything.
Out of all her friend’s jewelry, she chose the most expensive looking necklace. But before asking her friend for the jewelry, she had told her husband that she did not want to go to the party because she did not have an appropriate dress. So her husband willingly gave her all his money, in which he had saved up for his happiness. He gave her that so she could be happy, but that wasn't enough for her. She needed more.
Clarissa possessed no such worldly knowledge or edge, her only skill was to host parties and bring people together. The parties that Clarissa hosts is an intimate gesture and extension of herself seeking warmth and acceptance that are denied from Richard, Peter and Society. She finds herself constantly oscillating between Love and Desire and Freedom of Self. Her excessive need of warmth and connection is seen by Peter as overdoing and excessive; he looks through her soul and comments upon her hypocritical thoughts and desires of how if given to chance to marry a Prime-Minister, she would do so happily. Clarissa’s reaction to such comments by Peter mostly leaves her weeping and shaken, which is never the case with Richard Dalloway, her husband.
