This is evident in Ruth’s incestuous love, Milkman and Hagar’s relationship, and Guitar’s love for African-Americans. In these cases, it is the illusion of true love that these characters believe they are accomplishing, but instead they are destroying. The obsessions are thought to be carrying out the emotion of true love, but merely inflicts pain on the lover. In Song of Solomon, love is asymmetrical resulting in hurt and pain. As a father and daughter relationship there is obviously a mutual filial love and friendship; however, it is no true love as evidenced by Ruth’s subsequent life and emotional dependence on her father that Ruth takes for granted.
Emilia knows that Othello believes that Desdemona has cheated on him with Cassio, but the interesting factor is that Emilia knows that is not true as she arguably knows Desdemona the most out of all the characters. Desdemona's isolation prior to her death is “ attributable to the onlookers' nonintervention” (Vanita 343). Emilia was aware of the abuse that Othello put upon Desdemona even though she knew the accusations against her were false “For if she be not honest, chaste and true,/ There’s no man happy; the purest of their wives/ Is foul slander” (Shakespeare 4.2.18-20) but still leaves Desdemona in isolation with Othello, even though she was aware of what he believed. When Othello confronts Desdemona with the claims of cheating Othello commands Emilia to “Leave Procreants alone and shut the door;/ Cough or cry “hem”
The ridicule of love is a prominent theme throughout the play, most obvious though Phoebe’s interactions with love. She is the reason for Silvius’ borderline obsession, and frequently reasons why she does not want to be with him. Phoebe ridicules Silvius, an individual who oozes traditional pastoral views on love, which includes passionately longing for the person he believes to be his one true love, for having these very ideals. She ridicules the fact that Silvius stated that her “eyes can wound” because she believed that “there is no force in eyes that can do hurt” (3.5.16, 25-26). Here, Phoebe debunks every stereotypical view on love that was shown in the pastoral age, where lovers loved each other to painful lengths, where the mental pain of not being able to be with one another transformed into physical pain.
However, if she were to get “pregnant” it will bless her ,the household,and wives will envy her. She knows that there are laws, but she is so desperate that she is willing to break them by suggesting this to Offred, “Maybe you should try it another way”(Atwood 204).

For example, “SEEFATHERHEISBIGANDSTRONGFATHERWILLYOUPLAYWITHJANEFATHERISSMILINGSMILEFATHERSMILESMILE". This part contradicts with the nature of Pecola's father which associates with weakness and hatred. The chapter also explains Cholly's miserable childhood; the denial of his father to him and his shame at the hands of white officers when they oblige him to have sex in front of them, the thing which led him to rape his daughter twice in order to take revenge of this painful memory. Consequently, the parts of Dick and Jane story are used by Morrison to show the irony in the character's
Adultery, being a sin forbidden expressly in the seventh holy commandment, was a crime that was regarded with great shame from the community, as well as the disapproval from God. It was a transgression that not only betrayed the faith of a spouse, but one that demonstrated the priority of an individual (the sinner) over another. Proctor, in his weakness, betrayed his faithfulness to his wife Elizabeth and indulged in an affair with Abigail. Proctor notified Abigail that he will not falter again, telling her “Abby, I may think of you softly from time to time. But I will cut off my hand before I‘ll ever reach for you again.

“The idea of redemption is always, good news, even if it means sacrifice or some difficult times” (Smith). In The Scarlet Letter, composed by Nathaniel Hawthorne, a character named Hester Prynne commits adultery and her punishment is public shame; her daughter Pearl, sometimes seems very evil, but she is the main reason Hester chooses to continue her life. Hester’s husband, Roger Chillingworth, plots to get revenge on the man who is also involved but who will not confess and share some of Hester’s shame. The town reverend, Arthur Dimmesdale is becoming very sick because he is hiding a sin of his own as well. Many characters struggle with injustice and fight to find justice, but it is obvious that Hester Prynne responds to her injustice in a
