Sonnet 130 is written to express how different the Dark lady's attributes is from the era's ideal standard. Yet, the author finds her a rarity among the other idealized women. On the other hand, "Beauty in Ugly" by Jason Mraz, invokes the listener to understand that his intended recipient is ordinary and unremarkable. Yet, thee is beauty in ugly and she has other things to offer. Both works share a similarity in how they make an unremarked woman their focus, while at same time professing admiration for her.
World-famous writer Edgar Allan Poe once said, “A short story must have a single mood and every sentence must build towards it.” Short stories like the ones Poe wrote became popular in the 19th century. This is the same time period that American-writer Washington Irving lived and wrote in. My favorite short story by Irving is “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”. Through phenomenal imagery and a great theme Irving manages to create a world the reader can put themselves in. “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” is set in the small drowsy town of Sleepy Hollow.
Soraya Soraya was the wife of Amir and a flat, static character in the story. She had a gently hooked nose, luminous eyes, and a sickle-shaped birthmark on her jaw. She was kind and beautiful. However, because she was impulsive and rebellious in the past and ran away with a boyfriend, she had no suitors until Amir fell in love with her. She was loyal to Amir and supported his decision to become a writer.
When Lucetta waits to meet Henchard and ran into Farfrae, she quickly agrees to start a love relationship with Farfrae despite that she did not really know him. Perhaps this is a depiction of how women were portrayed in the pre industrialist era in Victorian England; they were spontaneous and romantic, taking decisions without thinking it through. Lucetta seems as a person who lives recklessly and in accordance with the moment rather than planning. She seems rather childish. Lucetta and Farfrae have a good relationship until the town people know about her past relationship with Henchard and decide to expose them.
In A streetcar named Desire, Stella is associated to this stereotypic role, she is an innocent woman and housewife who takes care of her husband by loving him in an outrageous way. Even if Stanley is hitting her, she still loves him. Whereas Blanche acts like a seductress, at first sight she seems to be pure by wearing a “daintily dressed in a white suit with a fluffy bodice” (Williams 3). In reality the authors gives a false impression of her in order to affirm that stereotypes or first impression are not always true. Indeed, after several scenes Blanche uses her power of seduction in order to manipulate men and reach her objectives.
The knight can’t decide so he asks the Old Lady, she chooses to be, “young and lovely, rich and charms” (lines 127).

Edgar Allen Poe and Roald Dahl have some similarities and some differences in consideration to their background and similarities. To start off, Poe and Dahl are the same because they both were influenced by the early deaths of their loved ones. To add on, they both faced poverty (asked for money) and since they faced death and poverty, they both wrote stories that included a dark mood. On the other hand, Poe and Dahl had some differences. First of all, Edgar Allen Poe was born in 1809.
The temperaments of both Jalil and Mr. Bennet, though considered good-natured, are extremely neglectful to their daughters and this impacts value system the protagonists have, with Elizabeth valuing independence and rational thought, and with Mariam 2.

After comparing both texts, “The Necklace” is a better short story than “The Journey to Galway” because of the strong characterization present in the story. Page 184 of the novel describes, Madame Loisel, the protagonist, as “One of those pretty, charming, young ladies, born, as if through an error of destiny… no hopes…” This quote shows that Madame Loisel is beautiful and a charming lady. Her beauty is what makes her think so highly of herself. She believes that she deserves more than what she has in her middle-class life which she describes as hopeless. This quote is an example of strong characterization as it show how she is so distracted by what she does not have and forgets about what
However, it’s a bit odd that he has known for years about her history; it’s challenging to believe this and has mentioned the purpose isn’t clear. Unfortunately, the villagers and the character of Masibi do not fully engage. One reason is because they don’t challenge Beth as a character. They all like her and follow her directions without questions. The dialogue or the dialect of the villagers also isn’t appealing, “Now ain’t you the handsome one,” and “You’re kinda cute, too, girl.” Overall, they add nothing exciting to the main
Gatsby feels that he is allowed to assume her feelings and wishes because his wealth makes him worthy to love her again. He feels entitled to speak on her behalf and make choices that are not his to make, “‘Your wife doesn’t love you,’ said Gatsby. ‘She’s never loved you. She loves me…’She never loved you, do you hear?’ he cried. ‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me.
