In fact, during their conversation during dinner time, he tries to comment on the discussion, but only ends up in embarrassing himself and his wife in the process. Than there is also the fact that he pities what he does not understand. For example, his notion of Richard’s wife leads him to believe she was sorrowful in death. Within the text, the Narrator was thinking, “I’m imagining now—her last thought maybe this: that he never even knew
Seeing Lolita as a threat-which keeps hindering her romantic displays for Humbert-Charlotte plans to send the girl to a boarding school, after summer camp. When Humbert realizes he cannot bring her to submission, he passingly starts planning her murder. Charlotte’s portrait, with all its complexity- lacks sympathy and the elements of her tragic figure become faint and somewhat restrained. She meets death -while bearing in mind the painful truth: the man she loves lusts after her own daughter. In this social paradigm, men are not spared of Humberts scornful and ironic eye.
Nevertheless, even Tea Cake, perceived to be the “kindest” of Janie’s husbands, eventually feels internal pressure to assert his dominance over her, and is led to beat her due to his own insecurity: “Before the week was over he had whipped Janie. Not because her behavior justified his jealousy, but it relieved that awful fear inside him. Being able to whip her assured him in possession. No brutal beating at all. He just slapped her around a bit to show he was boss” (146).
And as for his false bravado, I was certain that he would soil himself in a second if something happened that made him think his life was in any danger. I had dinner with Major Thomas. I could tell something was bothering him and when I asked him, he told me about his mother having cancer. I was really sorry for him. I liked Jim a lot.
These three main characters had different personality that made the story more interesting. Dorian Gray was full of himself wishing to remain in youth, in return, he was willing to sacrifice his own soul and unfortunately his wish came true. Thus, this makes Dorian Gray commit all the sins he wants and only the portrait got affected as he become immortal and not aging, not a single wrinkle in his face. Second character is Lord Henry which was Basil’s friend when Dorian Gray first met him. Lord Henry enthralled Dorian Gray with his world view, which was an extreme hedonism form as he assumed that the only worthwhile life of a person spent was by pursuing beauty and satisfaction for the senses.
The ghost even gave him specific instructions on that telling him “Taint not thy mind, nor let thy soul contrive/against thy mother aught” (pg. 25, l. 19-20). The ghost could not have said it any cleared to him to leave his mother out of this whole situation and just focus on killing his uncle. Hamlet thinks t his mother needs to be taught a lesson as well though so he criticizes her on this new marriage. He exclaims to her “the funeral baked meats/Did coldly furnish forth the marriage tables” (pg.
You have to be an artist and a madman, a creature of infinite melancholy, with a bubble of hot poison in your loins and a super-voluptuous flame permanently aglow in your subtle spine, in order to discern at once, by ineffable signs- the slightly feline outline of a cheekbone, the slenderness of a downy limb, and other indices which despair and shame and tears of tenderness forbid me to tabulate- the little deadly demon among the wholesome children; she stands unrecognized by them and unconscious herself of her fantastic power. (Nabokov
He suggests that “all of us have a share in it. I have mine. I cannot tell and I shall never know how many words of mine might have given birth to cruelty in place of love and kindness and charity” (64-65). Darrow shows sincerity in his beliefs and owns up to the part he had in these boys’ upbringing through society. By establishing the fact that he is not insulting the court or trying to rationalize murder, Darrow can clearly show he is only trying to stop the court from giving these children an onerous burden they will have to endure--until their deaths.
Here comes the second kind of love, the pure daughter love to her father, her idol, her king. This kind of pure love which should not and could not be described with words, but felt only in the heart. The heart is the King of Love. If heart does not feel, there is no love. Goneril and Regan may love their father, their evil behaviour cannot cancel their feelings, but probably, their love for authority and money was more.
One of the well-known writer Roald Dahl’s interesting short story is “lamb to the slaughter”. This story describes a life of a wife and her husband “Mary, who becomes murderer of her husband since he betrayed her. This story took place at early 1953 and the author used simple but suitable vocabulary to write his novel. Indeed, novel crashes genres that of fiction (realistic fiction). To further support my point the story reaches a comical climax in the dinner scene, in which the detectives eat the cooked lamb’s leg and discuss the opportunity of finding the blunt tool used to kill poor Patrick.
