Having such a negative outlook on life, and wanting to live more wealthy than happy, she is driving her own self into insanity. Hester’s madness finally materializes as pure greed.“As his mother read it, her face hardened and became more expressionless. Then a cold, determined look came on her mouth. (171)”Hester loses all sense of parental care as soon as money is involved. The simply thought of money forces Hester into a frenzy so she can have simple luxuries and comfort at the cost of those around her.
Change always has an outcome, that outcome will be either good or bad. Some changes in life may appear to be the right decision, however the effects may not be as wonderful as expected. Greediness can persuade those decisions. In the short story “The Necklace”, by Guy de Maupassant, Madame Loisel, the main character, experiences the consequences of what change can do. She is a selfish woman that prioritizes the yearning to be rich.
Madame Loisel wanted everyone to believe that she was wealthy, even if it was only for one magical evening. She craved the attention and vanity that the diamond necklace carried within itself, however it was later declared that it was an imitation thus making her feel ashamed. She lives in a fantasy world where she believed she entitled to more wealth and jewels henceforth she believes she has been scammed out of the use of her beauty and charm. These two characters have had nothing good happen to them because of their antagonistic and futile ways; Madame was not responsible about her losing Madame Forestier’s necklace and not simply telling her it was a mistake whilst the vicious sister in Unpopular Gal had a clouded judgement about her priorities thus making egotism and revenge to her sister her ultimate priority. These themes showcase the dreams and minds of these characters, as Gaiman
Wilde’s plays reveal the fact that since the true intentions and emotions of women belonging to the higher class of the society often lie under the veneer of prudery and complacency, women are liable to be misinterpreted. To cite an example, Mrs Erlynne of the play Lady Windermere’s Fan has been severely criticized for her “final choice of brazen independence over motherly duty.” (107) She is branded as an insensitive woman who abandons her child for an illicit relationship. But
It is most of the times the sole way of survival for women because of which they are unwillingly dragged into this field. It is also a way to make quick money which tempts the helpless even more into it. There are even times when girls are unwillingly pushed into this field by filthy money minded people who cheat them into this career. There are several cases wherein women are blackmailed, forced and cheated into such a situation from where they had to take up prostitution as a career. The thing one should understand is that not every woman who has undertaken prostitution as a career has done it willingly.
We can see this specifically in ‘Fate Playing’ and ‘Dreamers’. In Dreamers Hughes mentions how obsessed Plath was with Assia, justifying her uncontrollable jealous when she assumed a relationship between them. Hughes insinuates Plath’s imagination pushed him into having an affair. He uses expressions such as “She fascinated you” “she shocked you” “warily you cultivated her”. The use of language that is so mystical and obsessive shows that Plath was highly obsessed, and as a result highly jealous of Assia.
The reason for her bitterness is unknown, and Franny feels awful to have Margie mock and attempt hurt her. Since this behavior has been held out for a long time, Franny is returning the hatred, which has tainted her kind personality and transformed her. This action or dialogue moves the plot because: The reader can clearly see that Margie means ill-will on Franny. She constantly attempts to hurt her, and it is more than likely that this behavior will continue. Margie’s attitude and what she intends to do to Franny in the future moves the plot

she is described as an "it" and Gatsby then realises that he can 't repeat the past with Daisy and that his obsessive longing for her was a waste of time. I believe that this pessimistic feeling was a factor in his volatility towards Tom in the Plaza. Similarly in "Foster", Mildred like a predator, pounced on the innocent protagonist and questioned the Kinsella 's personal business such as
Indeed, after several scenes Blanche uses her power of seduction in order to manipulate men and reach her objectives. She is, by far, in opposition with the theme of purity, the author reveals that Blanche is a liar. Indeed she is saying that she has been hiring from her job, which is not the truth. Blanche is one the most interesting character in the story because she does not fit to some gender stereotypes, this difference makes her attractive and
