The repetition of the word ‘lust’, combined with the sexual associations of Desdemona’s bed, reflects and draws attention to Othello’s preoccupation with sensual matters. Othello even refers to his precious wife as ‘whore’ (III.iii.356), a ‘subtle whore’ (III.ii.20) and a ‘cunning whore’ (IV.ii.88), in a way to appreciate him. Shakespeare actually has indirectly revealed Othello’s fear of Desdemona’s sexuality. Even though Othello seems to be very confident in him and his control over Desdemona, he is actually tentative and afraid that Desdemona will cheat on him, proving his
The differences they experience later in life are more surprising because of the similarity of their upbringings. They both come from wealthy, or at least middle class families - their homes may have been a little dysfunctional, but it is assumed that they did not suffer any major abuse during childhood. On one hand, there’s Tyler; the son of a wealthy actor who never sees his father but is doted on by his mother. On another, there’s Kirsten; a somewhat successful child actress who presumably comes from a good home, but who seems to be at least a little neglected by her parents; this is seen when her “handler” during King Lear cannot reach her parents for hours, even though Kirsten had just witnessed a death that was widely publicized and would have been seen in the media by her parents. The lives they lead after the plague reflects their lives before, interpreted through the mind of a child.
He uses the flashback device to show Willy at home then switches to a flashback of Willy in a hotel room in Boston. This serves as an ironic counterpoint to Linda 's comment that Willy is idolized by his children; the fact that he is having an affair shows that Willy is not a man worthy of such fervent admiration. He displays the same callous disregard for women that Happy demonstrates as an adult, yet where Happy disregards women with whom he has insubstantial relationships, Willy is unfaithful to the devoted Linda. The flashback also demonstrates that Willy is not a man respected by others. A very important fact is that Biff felt betrayed and did not finish college because he found his father having an affair with another woman, so he did not retake math to spite his father.
In Lisa Moore’s “The Lonely Goatherd” and Michael Crummey’s “Heartburn” there’s a continuous breakdown of the couples’ relationships. Repressed feelings, infidelity and the symbolism of Signal Hill and drowning, help strengthen the theme of a lack of communication between Sandy and Georgie from “Heartburn” and Carl and Anita in “The Lonely Goatherd”. Sandy struggles to express his thoughts and feelings with his wife Georgie. Carl is constantly cheating on Anita and neglecting their marriage. This communication problem causes their relationships to deteriorate, which results in great strife for the ones involved.
She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways. In another quote the grandmother implies that the misfit is a good man by stating, "Yes it's a beautiful day," said the grandmother. "Listen, " she said, "You shouldn't call yourself the misfit because I know you're a good man at heart. I can just look at you and tell" (421). The grandmother doesn't know the misfit from Adam, yet she already gave him a persona that he has to match.
In the shortest terms the Oedipus complex is based on the idea that the young boy develops sexual desires for his mother and a hatred towards the father with murderous tendencies. The young girl on the other hand goes through the Electra complex, which is exactly the opposite of the Oedipus complex, except more brief as according to Freud, the girl soon realises that she does not have a penis and this leads to the development that she wishes that she was a boy. Freud calls this penis envy, this is also one of Freud’s most controversial theories that many reject completely. There is something in the way Freud seems to address women that draws a similarity as to how Allen’s female characters are constructed. Allen is often scrutinised for dealing with female characters as erotic objects merely there for the male gaze.
He also shows a little distaste for his brother because he has luxuries. Question About the Passage: 1. What keeps Holden’s relationship with his brother strong? Catcher In The Rye:Chapter 2: Significant Passage: “You never knew if he was nodding a lot because he was thinking and all, or just because he was a nice old guy that didn 't know his ass from his elbow.” Speaker: Holden Caulfield Audience: the reader Significance to the story: The reason he says this sentence is because he thinks that all adults pretend like they aren’t as knowledgeable as young people. He also thinks they aren’t as aware of their surroundings and up to date with current trends.
After Romeo asks Friar Lawrence to marry himself and Juliet, Romeo is highly ecstatic, translating to the mood of Mercutio. Contently, Mercutio teases “Why, is not this better now than groaning for love? ...for this drivelling love is like a great natural that runs lolling up and down to hide his bauble…” (2.4.80-84). Shakespeare uses a simile to compare Romeo looking for love to a fool trying to hide his jester stick, proving that the static character of Romeo is enamoured again. This is dramatically ironic, as Mercutio does not know the truth behind Romeo’s estactiness.
Abigail, also, leaves John because he chooses Elizabeth. Proctor has a mindset that he does not have anything left for him, but a name that has lied and has been blackened. The importance of reputation in the society of Salem was majorly important because it led John Proctor to believe his adultery and self-worth blackened his life. His affair was his first step into his own grave because of his unfaithfulness to Elizabeth. Then, his lies pushed him over the edge to make them believe there was no
Shakespeare further portrays men to be the instigators of betrayal, as Hamlet forgets that he ever loved Ophelia. Through, being overcome with intense hatred and anger at his mother, Hamlet denies ever having loved Ophelia, and orders her “to a nunnery”. It is Hamlet who instigates such betrayal, as he previously says “My fair Ophelia- Nymph” through “Nymph” Hamlet is describing Ophelia as a beautiful maid, thus highlighting his love for her. Yet, his attitude thereafter is considerably callous, as he continually questions Ophelia on her “honesty”. The continual questioning reflects that of a grueling and in part contributes to Ophelia’s later madness.

Robinson and starts to ramble about how she can expect that and that he’s not the kind of guy, once again Ben is fidgeting and the camera is following him. A focus to Mrs. Robinson shows she is interested in the conversation once again and ask Ben “expect what”. A hard cut to medium long shot framed through Mrs. Robinson’s legs shows Ben saying one of his most famous lines “Mrs. Robinson you’re trying to seduce me. Aren’t you?” This angle of the camera through legs represents the provocative nature of this shot and the sexualization of Mrs. Robinson.
Neither Myrtle and Tom are happy with who they are with and have been cheating on their spouses.

At the end of the second chapter it is said that Tom breaks Myrtle’s nose after she keeps repeatedly saying Daisy’s name. A man should never touch a girl in a physical
Despite being appointed as God’s chosen liberator of the Israelites, Moses is a person incapable of effectively leading his people. Moses’s lack of charisma, confidence, and determination are his greatest flaws as a leader which are demonstrated when he initially fails to stop his fellow Hebrews from fighting. His critical flaws as a leader initiates a chain of failures that will befall the Israelites during their journey and their eventual punishment of never reaching the Promised Land. One of Moses’s greatest shortcomings as a leader is his lack of charisma. He is unable to make the people naturally follow him and his words.
