Another factor is that her old husband was healing Dimmsdale, her ‘illegitimate’ lover. Hester and her daughter Pearl lived with mistrust, the townspeople were disgusted by her, and would never trust her even after her sentence was lifted. Relationships can stand on the grounds of mistrust and isolation, but they may never thrive on it due to the fact of trust and companionship being the key factors in a relationship. This was shown throughout both The Scarlett Letter and Ethan Frome in a variety of ways, including the lack of true companionship in both novels and also the complete lack of trust held by some characters in both
Sayoko was really that weak to voice out her feelings. Sayoko 's way of touching her mole with the use of her left hand shows that she is guarding and protecting herself from her abusive husband. Sayoko 's husband is an image of a common problem about marriage failure today. Sayoko was beat and kick by her husband but she did fight, her weakness made her abuse more by her husband. 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.
All these characters that associated with what they call love, were unfaithful, so they often found themselves miserable. For example, Tom and Daisy Buchanan both cheated on each other for what was known as temporary love. Even though at the time they seemed happy in their own affairs, they became miserable when they stayed together for social acceptance, under marriage at the end of the book. Furthermore "(Tom) had deliberately given Daisy a sense of security”. As a woman during this time
Romeo’s mother or father does not have any influence in his life, but Romeo’s friend did in place of theirs. Romeo’s friends did not show any parental support, unlike Juliet’s nurse. Juliet has the nurse to fill in as the role of her mother. Even though Juliet’s nurse gives Juliet guidance, the nurse has some boundaries because of her job. In addition to the nurse having boundaries with Juliet, Juliet seeks affection and attention since she does not always receive it from her parents.
She can’t wear red lipstick in front of Nathan because he would find it immodest and would punish her. She has to hide her true self to avoid the wrath of her husband. Unfortunately, because she has to hide her true self so often, she's started to lose pieces of who she once was. Orleanna was “so thoroughly bent to the shape of marriage [she] could hardly see any other way to stand” (201). She does not remember her single life, and has become so deeply invested in this dominating marriage that her life bent under the will of her husband is the only way she knows how to
Her lie then backfires; she tells the court that John never had any relations with Abigail after John had already confessed to his sin. She takes blame for the affair when she tells the court “...But in my sickness...I were a long time sick...I thought I saw my husband somewhat turning from me...” (1260). This change could be for better or worse, better because she became a more loving, understanding wife but for worse because she takes the blame for something that a woman should never take blame for because it was the man’s choice to
To other people she probably deserves the most pity and sorrow for the things she has been through in life and people after people letting her down. In Of Mice And Men she is referred to as “Curley’s Wife” , she has no name that’s how irrelevant she is to her husband and the other guy’s. Curley to me shows disrespect to his so called”Wife” so much that I just don't get how you could treat someone you love like that, he doesn't introduce her to them or nothing he leaves it up to them if they want to know who she is. She has had the dreams of acting but those have been let down as she tells us “Says he was gonna put me in the movies , says i'm a natural” to me she lets people let her down without standing up for herself and it's not acceptable to be a grown women letting people let you down like that and not standing for yourself. There is a lot of pity and sorrow in this story that we should show our pity and sorrow to
As Lena and Harold are talking downstairs about “useless things”, the lyrics “I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited/But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it” would be played as Ying-Ying St. Clair is thinking when she should reveal herself and tell her about her wisdom. The lines “sometimes is lasts in love but hurts instead”, could also be used to relate to how Lena and Harold were married happily first, but then over time it went downhill and started to “hurt” both of them. Ying-Ying’s
Bingley’s sister was repulsed, as this was very against social norms. Elizabeth Bennet is also stereotyped by society because of her family, although she is nothing like her parents or sisters. This causes problems for her as she grows older and is expected to begin courting. When Elizabeth catches the eye of Mr. Darcy, a “****”, he avoided her for a very long time as his admission to himself that he is in love with
Because women are known as the more vulnerable and emotional sex, decision making turns upside down when men choose according to their sentiment. This occasion can be seen when Edward is forced to admit his feelings towards the complex situation between Billy 's and Loretta’s slight affair. Before Edward was presented in the short story Loretta’s portrayal was weak. Specifically, the narrator highlights: ”But she was not so sure about not wanting to leave Daisy. Not that she loved Daisy less, but that she--had doubts.” Assuming Loretta was incapable making a decision between running away from an unbearable relationship with Billy and the boundless love towards her older sister Daisy.
Mrs. Hales states that, “I stayed away because it weren’t cheerful” (Glaspell. 974), she knew that the wife wasn’t happy. Also that because of her husband she seemed to no longer have a fun outgoing personality that she used too, her husband had killed that as
