Shakespeare further elaborates their dismissive speech over Bianca to arouse Othello’s suspicion into conviction that Desdemona is having a love affair. This conviction leads Othello into anguish and frustration. If Cassio has paid attention to Bianca’s traits other than sexuality, there would have been no failure of men. Thus, men’s view of women solely through a sexual lens has incurred a
Both of the men offer sex to their women. After they both get rejected, who would have guessed that, each man begins to pour his heart out as to why she should say yes. For Marvell, the argument was that she couldn’t say no because there was not time for her to say anything but yes. If they had more time, her coyness wouldn’t be a crime and she could say no. Donne’s argument has to do with a flea.
Attention. Attention is something all authors desire to have from the audience when reading his or her book. Attention can be drawn by the author is various ways whether it is through the writing itself or the style. In particular, Elie Wiesel does this in his memoir, Night, to drawn the attention out by style. In this memoir Wiesel gets the attention of his audience through the variety of sentence structure throughout his book that helps emphasize many moments that had occurred in his life and journey.
Over all the book is more than just a collection of the diary and letters mashed together into a book, the author talks about what is going on at the time McClellan is writing his letters before showing them to us, he also helps the reader a lot with footnotes of places, people and events throughput the redaction, also citing his own research within the book, it is easy to read since they are letters and a diary, they were more of a narrative than a regular history book which made it more interesting. The author mainly uses primary sources such as letters, something I found interesting was that the author also picked letters addressed to him. I felt like the author did a great job and made the book really easy to follow, but I felt like the book lacked that attention grasp, it was smooth read and in all honestly not hard, but I always look for a book that grasps my attention for a long time span. When reading this book, even thought the footnotes where at the end of each letter or diary entry it was tedious having to turn the page when I did not know about a concept. The Mexican War was a big moment for the United states.
To further his argument he tries to make her admit that their mixed blood within the flea "cannot be said a sin, or shame, or loss of maidenhead" to persuade her that having sex with him is just as innocent. The speaker seems to insinuate that she should give in to his desires because the flea, who he personifies, has already been able to "enjoy" his lady 's flesh without needing to "woo" her. Therefore, he should be able to do the same. In line eight the speaker gives us a revolting image of the flea swelling from having being overfed with blood suggesting that it is pregnant from having their two bodily fluids mixed inside. He personifies the flea again by describing it as being "pampered", excessively indulging in blood to emphasize that the
For this reason, Trueblood’s story of his sexual encounter with his own daughter consumes Norton (48), serving as a reverse-Oedipal situation in which a black man sleeps with his daughter instead of Oedipus sleeping with his mother. Norton secretly wanted to do the same with his own daughter, but, either because she dies too soon or because he believes he is too civilized, he is unable to do so. As a result, he uses Trueblood’s story as an opportunity to experience a depraved sexual fantasy without the social repercussions. The audience at the Battle Royal have a similar goal, where
Metaphorically, Offred views herself as the mistress who says “[the soldier] was not a monster” (182). Offred does not necessarily view the Commander as a monster, but he is the agent of her oppression, who carries out Gilead’s misogynistic views. When the Commander first asked Offred to meet him privately, she was skeptical and scared. Before entering his office at night, for the first time, she thinks “there must be something he wants, from [her]” (171). Indeed, the Commander is using Offred to fulfill his sexual desires.
When analyzed deeper, it is evident being the catcher is nothing but a metaphor, and Holden truthfully just wishes to save kids from losing their innocence like he wishes to save his own. Holden wishes to catch those who do not see reality at the bottom of the cliff. Phoebe realizes Holden is referring to a poem he overheard and misinterpreted that is written by Robert Burns. While Holden believes he heard “Gin a body catch a body comin’ thro the rye,” the real line is "Gin a body meet a body comin’ thro the rye” (Salinger 93). While Holden hears one thing, the real poem actually refers to a sexual encounter that he does not catch on to because of his childlike innocence.
Taking this idea to her notion of kitsch, love was the outer surface, the intelligible lie that can allow Franz to have Sabina for the rest of his life, but deep down, the unintelligible truth was how Sabina knows their relationship is merely sexual. Her notion of the kitschy-ness of love and sex does not fully show how she is special, since there are some people, like Tomas, who treat love and sex differently, but this does place her out from the crowd of the seemingly innocuous people who think that there must be love in order to have
