The author in this article uses a lot of ethos when talking about Abigail Adams. In the text the author states, “By passing this money on to Abigail 's grandsons, Louisa may have indicated disapproval of her mother-in law 's decision to exclude all male descendants” (Holton 34). This is talking about how Abigail’s daughter-in-law passed down money in her will to her sons instead of all to women. Abigail though would approve of this because Louisa is using her power that she now has to do as she wishes with her stuff. This is ethos because she is doing what she believes is morally good in her opinion.
I completely agree with the thoughts and point of view of Antigone over those of Creon in the play Antigone . I'm choosing the side of Antigone because I see her as more of a protagonist and creon more as the antagonist, she has the better point of views, and I think that her thoughts on her brother's burial were more sane and humane. It was also her brother that they were fighting about and she has the right to say what they should do. This paper explains my views on why I think that Antigone had the better point of view. Antigone was completely and utterly right through the whole book and creon was completely wrong.
Mary Maloney is a very loving and devoted house wife and mother-to-be. Though her dream of having the perfect American family was destroyed by the bewildering news of Patrick choosing another women over Mary and their child. Innocent is all Mary Maloney is, due to her indistinct state of mind caused by her heinous husband’s decision to desert her and her child while she is unable to control her emotions due to her being pregnant. Mary is not guilty of murder instead innocent due to diminished capacity. Mary genuinely loved and cared for Patrick and would never intently plan to kill him with hatred.
After reading Antigone, many people finish the book with the idea that Haimon was the character that had the most will and strength. He stood up to his father, defending the woman he loves and risking his home and father's trust to save her. Although Haimon did attempt to save Antigone from her death, Antigone was fearless, independent and determined during her mission to let her brother rest in peace. During the time when the play was written, a person who has died would not be fully at peace without a burial ceremony. Antigone wants justice for her brother and is willing to risk her life to accomplish it.
Contrary to popular belief, Lady Macbeth is not an evil character. She is simply a misguided woman who is extremely determined to have her way. Although she took a lot of wrong turns, she did realize in the end that what she did was horrifically wrong. Lady Macbeth was not a bad person, She only wishes greatness for her husband and also wants to be part of his greatness, though she does let her guilt get to her in the end. During the play, Lady Macbeth only wanted to help her husband achieve greatness- even if it meant she would have to murder some people.
Lady Macduff embodies what motherhood should look like and she does not invest her time creating evil plots to kill other people. Whereas on the other hand, Lady Macbeth, not as bound to household duties, she sharpens her knowledgeable capabilities for the use of her own and the power which she holds. This is a very untraditional and unnatural factor that a woman would hold. Lady Macbeth also is seen as the more dominant role in the Macbeth marriage. On many occasions she rules her husband and dictates his actions.
One of the most dramatic marriages ever read about was Macbeth and Lady Macbeth’s. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth’s relationship caused many chaotic outcomes, but in the end it proved to be fatal. In the beginning of Macbeth, the readers are already aware of the fascinating relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Lady Macbeth received a letter from her husband about the witches’ prophecies. He wrote, “This have I thought good to to deliver thee, my dearest partner of greatness.”( Macbeth, Act 1, Scene 5, Lines 9-10) Macbeth knows that his wife will be in love with the thought of being queen.
Antigone is correct for bold rebellion to bury her brother because she loyal to her family and to the gods. Antigone will always be loyal to her brother no matter what anyone says, even her uncle. According to the play, Antigone says, “Ismene I am going to bury him. Will you come?’’ (P.30) What she is trying to say is that it doesn 't matter what anybody says about her brother being buried she is still going to be loyal, even if her brother is dead. some may say that she should not be loyal what Creon said.
No male during this time would have suspected anything similar to this of their wife, but the fact that Shakespeare even wrote about it hints to readers that Shakespeare may have believed in equality for women. Emilia also stood up for what she believed in and laid down her life doing so.

Emilia knew she was expected to obey her husband, yet she was willing to lay down her life to alert others of the atrocious acts that her husband had committed. Not only did Emilia speak out against her husband, but was willing to lose her life in the process.
Then with Ginny acting like nothing was wrong, because she buried the memories away for good, Rose thought it was okay to just act like it was okay. Rose even admits that she didn’t think it was bad, because Larry said so and made her feel special compared to her sisters. After growing up, after knowing that was wrong and disgusting, the stress that must put on Ginny and Rose may have been soul crushing. Rose even deprived herself from seeing her daughters everyday and caring for them to keep them away from her father and his wicked ways. So yes, as far as we know, Ginny and Rose were more justified in their actions than Goneril and
The strong, protectors who would bring home the money while their wives were the caregivers who kept them satisfied and never left home. This lead to the oppression of women in marriages since they didn’t have many liberties and were frowned upon if they wanted to be more than just a housewife. In the story Chopin suggests that Mrs. Mallard was rejoicing her husband’s death because she knew that once he was gone she would no longer be oppressed and was free to do what she pleased. In reference to the film when Mrs. Millard shared the news to her husband about her healthy heart and that she was able to be more productive her husband didn’t seemed too pleased. He wanted to keep his wife locked away in their home while he traveled to all the places Mrs. Mallard dreamed of
