For example, “ let us get hold of the property,” said he, consolingly to himself, “and we will endeavor to do without the woman.”(P.234 Irving) This demonstrates how Tom jumped at the chance to deal with the devil after his wife died because he didn't want to makes wife happy and he didn't want to share the wealth with her. It shows how Tom walker doesn't like sharing things with anybody. Additionally, In “ Snow White
This shows that Friar Laurence doesn't believe that Romeo's love for Juliet is authentic, but he agrees to marry them anyway. The Friar believes that a marriage between a young Capulet and a young Montague might be able to put an end to the family feud. It can be said that he didn’t really care for the marriage, and that he just wanted to join the two families. This claim is invalid because
Ethan marries Zeena after Zeena comes to care for Ethan's sick mother. Ethan's mother eventually dies and just before Zeena leaves "he was seized with an unreasoning dread of being left alone on the farm" so to avoid facing loneliness he unconsciously asks her to marry him(35). Similarly Whartons expected marriage, Ethan merely married Zeena because "he felt obligated to her" and he was "not aware of the implications of having her was a wife"(66 Farwell). Whartons unromantic and incompatible marriage is seen in Ethan because he quickly realizes he is "not in love with her, he does not find her beautiful and mostly he does not find her interesting"(66). In addition to the similar incompatibility seen in Whartons marriage, Ethan's wife also begins to fall ill just as Teddy Wharton had.
Montague and Capulet are both greedy because they did not put aside their differences and end their ongoing dispute, even though it lead to people getting hurt. Instead, Montague and Capulet watched Verona struggle with deaths and fights, but refused to do anything about it. In Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet both knew they would never be able to love each other due to their parents feud. This caused them to keep their love hidden which lead to trouble later in the play. “The fathers stand for the accumulated experience of the past, for tradition, for authority and hence for the two most potent forces that mold and so impart “destiny” to the child’s life” (Goddard par 5 ).
In “The Awakening” by Kate Chopin, Robert Lebrun sacrifices his love and desire for Edna Pontellier. Robert’s sacrifice shows that that even though Robert was in love with Edna he knew what was right and he understood why he could not be with Edna. Robert sacrifices his love when he leaves for Mexico in search of business and at the end of the novel when he decides that he cannot stay with Edna in her “pigeon-house”. Robert’s sacrifices his love and desire for Edna because he realizes that the love he feels for Edna will not be accepted in society and also because Edna was already married to Lèonce Pontellier. When Robert leaves for Mexico in search of business and riches he does not tell Edna that he was planning on leaving after spending
Daisy wants to stay with Tom because he has the status and money that she wants so much. If she left him, she’d be losing those assets. However, since George doesn’t have these assets, he has no incentive for Myrtle to stay with him, so he has to remove her from the affair by force. Plus, the law is clearly still applicable to those of lower status, as it’s present when Myrtle is killed, We know that Myrtle is killed by Gatsby’s car, but there is no follow through from the law apparent. In fact, some of the only consequences in the book is George's act of renegade
He concocts the potion, but this in itself doesn’t contribute to their tragic end but it is fate, in that the letter he wrote never reaches Romeo in Mantua and so he doesn’t know of the Friar’s plan. The Friar is always giving council to Romeo and Juliet and is really only ever helping the two lovers. The only thing wrong he does is to marry Romeo and Juliet just a few days after they meet. This is not good because it is too hasty as he points out when he says, “These violent delights have violent ends.” That is who I believe caused the most
Tom, who went away from his mother and sister sees it as a way of getting away from his mother who did not only blame him for not telling them all about Jim (Laura’s suitor) moreover; did not appreciate him despite all he did for their family. Williams writes, “All right, I will! The more you shout about my selfishness to me the quicker I’ll go, and I won’t go to the movies!” (Qtd in Barnet, Burto, and Cain, p.
They're either dead or inside." Evidently, they do not see eye to eye on the matter of going legit because Ghost, or should I say, James, sees his club Truth as his ticket out of the dangerous drug business, but his wife has known him only as a drug kingpin and doesn't want that to change. Even though she provides input on the street enterprise, Tasha is unable to see the big picture because she scoffs when Ghost works at the club leading him to lose respect for her. Thus, family pressure from his wife Tasha makes it difficult for Ghost to do the right thing and leave the
