Through her letters it is clearly obvious she never really wanted to be a nun rather be a lover to Peter. Throughout Peter’s letters back to Heloise they are quite harsh. This harshness is equated to the fact these letters could eventually become public. As Peter Abelard was now the abbot of the convent and he was only allowed to have love for God and could not see to be messing around with one of the nuns. Although Peter writes very harsh things it is only to allow Heloise to move on.
With the face paint on, Jack feels he’s invincible and free from the social bonds he had in England. He feels the power of the mask and it reminds him of the power he had in England that Ralph has taken away from him. The island slowly takes over Jack and leads to him to do crazy things. As the island is the escape from reality for all the boys, it transforms them into savages in an ominous way.

Yossarian embraces the maid as an escape due to her sexuality providing a sense of security. Despite this security which she provides, Yossarian openly admits that he only loves her due to his lack of love for her. Though this serves as a catch-22 moment, this relationship genuinely
“You’re the Misfit! I recognized you at once!” (O’Connor 477). Instead of staying quiet like most people would when confronted by a dangerous person on the loose, she tries to charm the Misfit and ease her way out of danger. “I know that you’re a good man, you don’t look a bit like you have common blood, I know you must come from nice people” (O’Connor 477) it is evident that she is definitely responsible for her family’s death in a way. To begin, if she would have never screamed the Misfits name when she noticed him, he would not have seen them and felt like he had to kill the entire family and they might have gotten away.
They are no longer twins and they don't share that special bond, but what this crap even supposed to mean? Hasn't she wished countless times to alienate him from her? Didn't she argue once Max might be adopted, her parents' charity cause? Or was he the one to say so of her? Either way, on a day to day basis, he annoys her, disgusts her and somehow make her heart skip (just the one beat) in a way it should never do for him.
Although, to men it was inconceivable (8) that women were allowed to do that, to have that much freedom. In The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald portrayed these affairs within three characters.

During these times, Tom saw nothing wrong with his cheating.
Addison, an important critic in the theatre was very perceptive of the suspicious behaviour of Eve. However, he didn’t have much basis for his theory until he became closer with Eve and picked up on clues of stutters or inconsistencies with her stories. His sarcastic comments like “the Shubert… untouched by the earthquake – so sorry – fire”, went unnoticed by Eve who befriended him for the publicity he could provide for her rise in her career, while meanwhile unaware of her letting loose on her absorbing lie. Addison’s completion of the puzzle through his own perceptive eye and the information from other people, allowed for him to confront Eve for her fraudulent behaviour and explains to her how much she “completely belongs” to him. Eve’s ultimate downfall was as a result of some of her inattentive comments that Addison was able to pick up on, depleting her satisfaction, despite her brief happiness in the
This attempt from Hagar to change her physical appearance to fit the expectations she believes Milkman has, shows that she was not getting the love she desired. Although blind to how his leaving affected Hagar until a later time, Milkman finally came to the discovery of what he had done. His inability realize all that Hagar was doing was for him and treat her like she deserved, ultimately played the key role in why she died. Pilate contrasts this very differently in the sense that she never leaves who she loves behind. This difference between the two and the way that Pilate handles situations is why Milkman looks up to her and strives to be someone like
Romeo and Juliet claim that they love each other, but that isn’t possible. How can they possibly be in love when they have only known each other for a few short hours before declaring their undying love and uniting in Holy Matrimony? Love is a limitless and condition-less devotion, based on an intimate knowledge, to another person, whereas lust is an emotional obsession based on physical chemistry and appearance. Lust initiates a desire to acquaint ourselves with someone, but our interactions with and increased knowledge of a person are what cause us to love. Romeo and Juliet definitely lusted after each other.
They were having a fight about something. I’ve a feeling about me”(Minot, 297) This passage speaks volumes, starting with the fact that they have moved to a secluded truck symbolizing their success in flirting with her, and have speedily moved things on to peruse sex. She ends with, “I’ve a feeling about me,” the reader assumes she is enjoying being fought over yet there isn’t any hard evidence supporting our theories, plus she doesn’t say that she tried to stop them. This sense of belonging ties in with her search, and the idea that she thinks she finally has found something that she believes makes her fit in. She even states, “I could do some things well.
