She simultaneously loves and resents her children because, while she is their mother, she feels that they have taken away her freedom and self-purpose. As Edna journeys in her awakening, she strives to find meaning for herself as Edna, not her children's mother. To prove she is more than just a mother, she distances herself from normal motherly responsibilities. “He reproached his wife with her inattention, her habitual neglect of the children. If it was not a mother's place to look after children, whose on earth was it?”(Chopin, 15) Edna's neglect of her children stems from others expectations for her to submit to and look after her
I chose a clip from Family Guy called Quagmire’s Sister is Submissive The video is about Glenn Quagmire’s sister Brenda, who is in an abusive relationship with her boyfriend Jeff. Quagmire cares about his sister and wants her to get away from Jeff, but she is blind from the abuse. She thinks that Jeff is just upset about other things and corrects her when she messes up. The family tries to do in intervention to get her to realize that Jeff is a problem, but she doesn’t see that he is abusing her. The video is very meaningful, because there are abusive relationships in the world and the women think it is their fault or they don’t even realize they are being abused.
Jim tells Huck he hit her for not listening to get to work, but he then finds out she has been recently made dea when she did not react to the door slamming shut from the wind. He realizes he hit her when she never even heard Jim to begin with.

This shows Jim’s deep rooted connection with love of others and his humanity. Not only that, but Huck realizes he cares deeply for his family and is capable of emotions that otherwise racist ideologies have told him are not possible.
She murders him on an impulse. Contrastingly, Dora hides what may happen to Calvin though there is surely a chance to do so when she follows him to the hole. Thirdly, Mary and Dora’s reactions to their husbands’ deaths are different. Because Mary does not seem clever enough to cry false tears, it is obvious from the tear Mary sheds for the death that she gets upset without a need to pretend to do so. On the other hand, Dora just says “I do declare (6).” without showing her sorrow or pain.
Look to ’t, I charge you. Come your ways.” (1.3.140-145) Her father told her that she cannot talk to Hamlet anymore and that she must end their relationship with one another. Both Polonius and Laertes tell Ophelia that’s Hamlet is playing with her feelings and that he has everything he wants and is just using her. Ophelia does not want to listen to her family’s opinion because she believes that Hamlet if different. (Gates) By her family saying these things about Hamlet to her in a way she begins to doubt herself and her self-worth.
When he first saw Daisy Miller he was utterly shocked by how different she was. Even though his aunt, Mrs. Costello, told Winterbourne to stay away from Daisy, he made it his mission to break down and learn all things about Daisy. Daisy was fond of Winterbourne as well.

But once Winterbourne saw how big of a tease she was and he was not getting the attention that he thought he should get from her and how she would be with men non stop, he stopped pursuing
Macbeth is an evil and selfish person. Macbeth’s wife pressures him into killing Duncan because he looked too much like her father for her to do it herself. Lady Macbeth mocks Macbeth’s manliness when he says to her that he does not want to kill Duncan. When he does, he hears the chamberlains awake and say their prayers before going back to sleep. “One cried God bless us!
Troy explains to Rose why he will not allow Cory to play football and tells her that she’s been mothering Cory too much. She then tells Troy that Cory wants to make him proud, and all he wants to hear from his father is “Good job, son.” (19).

Troy argues with Rose about why he did it.
As for Antigone she became anger with her sister, Ismene, when she refused to help her bury their brother. Over all they are prideful individuals who withhold their stubbornness. For example when Oedipus, was not willing to yield to Liaus where the three rode 's meet and instead he decided to kill him for it and Antigone although it was the law that forbade her from burring her brother she decided to disobey and follow what was right to her. The also performed over the top self-harm; if they were not so dramatic they could of prevent their own deaths and the others around
At this point, she still doesn’t know that Claudius killed her first husband, but it still causes her grief about whether marrying her husband’s brother was the right thing to do. Her dilemma of having to choose one man over the other is driving her to insanity because she can’t pick just one of them. Certainly she loves both of them or at least that’s what she thought, but Hamlet’s father is her true love while Claudius is the brother of her husband that just so happened to become king after his brother died. In short, she doesn’t know her true feelings for either person. Gertrude feels confused and overwhelmed by everything that just unfolded in front of her.
In Scene 1 Act 2 she says “Let not thy mother lose her prayers, Hamlet; I pray thee stay with us; go not to Wittenberg" (1.2,18-19) she’s trying to protect Hamlet but not seeing that she’s actually hurting him. What made Hamlet mad was that she had married her uncle two months after his father’s death. Gertrude causes the main problem in Hamlet’s life and she does it by only thinking of herself. Hamlet is a young loyal man while the queen is nothing close to being loyal. Hamlet is loyal to his father and want revenges for his death by killing Claudius while Queen Gertrude is disloyal to Old Hamlet by marrying his
(11) Curley’s wife complains to Crooks, Lennie, and Candy about her husband, how he “Spends all his time sayin’ what he’s gonna do to guys he don’t like, and he don’t like nobody. Think I’m gonna stay in that two-by-four house and listen how Curley’s gonna lead with his left twict, and then bring in the ol’ right cross?” (78). Obviously, Curley’s wife did not marry Curley because she loves him, but most likely she may be running from someone or something in her life. The unsatisfied wife endures Curley just so she can live in
