This quote shows that Lord Capulet should be punished because he is forcing his daughter to do something she does not want to do. He is also calling her some pretty mean stuff. My next quote also shows that Lord Capulet should be punished. During my next quote, Lord Capulet is yelling at the nurse because he is mad that his daughter is being disobedient. “And why, my Lady Wisdom?
A big reason is the parents are pressuring Juliet with a marriage she doesn 't even want to do. “if you don 't act like my daughter you can beg starve and die in the streets”. Act 3 scene 5 line 193. This shows how much pressure is on her making her freak out and fear
Antigone is put at a disposition at the beginning of the work as she is a woman trying to voice her opinion in a time where men were only heard. Some may attribute her lack of voicing to her arrogant attitude, possibly rightly so, developed from the sequence of events in the work. Antigone felt entitled to bury her brother; she felt entitled that her voice be heard. She went against Creon’s command and tried to bury her brother. Antigone scorns Creon at the beginning of the play during questioning by back-talking and arrogantly answering Creon.
In the Act 1, Scene 1, I notice that Madame Pernelle was extremely upset. Her very first lines in the play is of her yelling, “My visit here is through!” “Then stop! That’s your last step!”(1.1) Madame Pernelle states that she has a problem with how the household, belonging to her son Orgon, is ran.
This reveals that she is willing to be rude and angry, even to the man that she loves, just for power. Lady Macbeth also asks her ancestors to make her purely evil. What person ask to be truly evil if they’ve any amount of good in them? (Act 1 Scene V Lines 39-42). “Come, you spirits that serve the thoughts of mortals: rid me of the natural tenderness of my
Sexism is obscenely visible in his very own, Hamlet. Sexsim is the prejudice or stereotyping, typically against women solely because of their gender. In Hamlet, Shakespeare shows absolute disregard for women when he uses Lord Hamlet as someone who blames women for his sanity, by making them seem weak, vulnerable, and submissive due to the time frame, and using women for certain topics or occurrences needed to keep the story going.. In Hamlet, Lord
In my scene she clearly says to Blanche, “I was very worried about you. I wasn’t sure if I had made the right decision.” This is consistent with the end of scene 11 when Stella protests the matron apprehending Blanche even though she had at least some part in planning it, “Don’t let them do that to her, don’t let them hurt her!” (140). It was the guilt and uncertainty she felt for sending Blanche away that made her question her relationship with Stanley.
It is an intrinsic battle that takes place over the course of the play, but comes to a head during the concluding moments, in which Claudio is deceived by his apprehensions of marriage into rejecting Hero, showing that perhaps he prides his honor above the love he so freely professes. Hero is placed in the uncomfortable position of being rejected by nearly everybody she cares for, necessitating that she fake her demise and be reborn as a new woman, resurrected from the grave and cleansed of the impurities she was accused of. Benedick and Beatrice have both pledged never to find love, and therefore must remove the guises behind which they labor- for indeed, both characters desire love, but hide their wish for fear of being rejected. In each instance, past beliefs must be discarded in the name of securing future happiness, which causes consternation in each individual. In the case of Benedick, he is forced to challenge his best friend to a duel in order to win the hand of his lover- an appendage of the central conflict, which is the inner battle between love and personal reservations which takes precedence over life and death (at least for the Christ-figure maiden
The biggest argument that Hamlet has as a result of his charade is the fight with his mother in the infamous chamber scene. In this scene Hamlet’s mother calls Hamlet into her chamber to discuss the way that Hamlet has been acting. Hamlet’s mother has noticed that Hamlet is acting differently, and tries to figure out why he is doing so. When Hamlet enters, he is immediately enraged, shooting back all attempts his mother makes to connect with him with insults. As the quarrel continues Hamlet goes from responding to his mother by saying, “Mother, you have my father much offended” when she says, “Hamlet, thou hast thy father much offended” to having to have his father’s ghost tell Hamlet to stop hurting his mother, and to collect himself (III.
The current behaviors of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy contrast to their usual behavior portrayed in the novel leading up to this passage, especially Mr. Darcy’s. The anger Elizabeth expresses in this passage is a kind of anger that she has never expressed in the novel before, which shows how Mr. Darcy’s marriage proposal has affected her. What he said to her as his ‘marriage proposal’, which was more like a speech full of insults towards Elizabeth, seemed to push Elizabeth past her breaking point and caused her to lose control and let all her rage towards Mr. Darcy out. This anger
She states that she is being tormented with anxiety and is fearful of what Banquo and Fleance could do to the two rulers. Could her fear be the cause of her downfall? The power and fierceness between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth is comparable to a scale. The lower Lady Macbeth goes, the higher Macbeth goes. Her descent in power causes Macbeth to ascend in power, however, the fact that later on in the act, Macbeth seems to have planned a murder(s) without consent from Lady Macbeth, which shocks
"While the King fought…" you "…polluted his wife..." and "…when he came back you made yourself scarce." (pg. 82) In addition to that, when we figure out that Clytemnestra was right she defends herself by saying "I was laughed at." (pg. 32) even though being right, nevertheless she is immediately shut down by herald who defies her, the queen: "Are such words necessary? A Queen boasting so strangely…" (pg. 33).
In the excerpt from the opening of The Beet Queen , Louise Endrich, portays Karl and Mary as an addition and subtraction to the town of Argus.

Julia’s Methods Throughout history, the people who make the biggest difference are the ones with the guts to stick up for what they believe. The people who are unorthodox are the very people who help bring about change in an unjust society. In George Orwell’s book, 1984, Julia is presented as an unorthodox character through her various behaviors she displays throughout the book, including her interest in Winston, her secret hatred of the party, and her numerous affairs with Party members. Julia and Winston’s secret love affair was an act of outright rebellion against Big Brother. “When you make love you’re using up energy; and afterwards you feel happy and don’t give a damn for anything.
