This author includes this to show that they thought Curley's wife only wanted something from the men. The reader can infer that the men thinks she is desperate because it says she probably gives the stable buck the eye. No one really respected Crooks because of his color. Therefore, when the men say that, they are basically calling a her a “slut”. Throughout the novel of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, the author reveals that there were false expectations based on gender through the character of Curley’s Wife.
But if you are telling someone that they should marry you because he or she will be full of regret, then I don’t think the person will be very happy, thus they will decline. It is like in Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard. Alison was arrogant and mean and hated by many. She didn’t care what people thought, because she thought she was better than everybody. She said some awful things to people; awful enough to get her killed.
For instance, Myrtle Wilson had an affair with Tom Buchanan because he was wealthy. Evidently, Myrtle wanted to have a wealthy husband because as she talks about her wedding, she was very upset, she said, “He borrowed somebody’s best suit to get married in… I lay down and cried to beat the band afternoon”(Fitzgerald 35). Despite the harsh attack Tom had towards her, Myrtle still wanted him over her husband who loved her, but just was not wealthy. Sadly, her wishes would never come true because Tom had no intention of marrying Myrtle. The book The Great Gatsby demonstrates how the American Dream is corrupt.
Shaw crafts these nasty words to display how many men felt during the time period of a woman who chose to go out and make a life for herself. This underlying tone that money is only okay if it is respectable arises within Frank’s communication to Vivie, with Frank going so far to say that “if [Vivie] ever put your arm around her waist in my presence again, I’ll shoot myself there” (Shaw 1812). This ridiculous and hyperbolic claim calls further attention to Frank’s disrespect for Mrs. Warren in that his fragile masculinity has been so attacked by her disapproval of marriage that he feels the need to influence Vivie. This conversation points out the irony in Frank’s thought process, where
The reader can imagine her as constantly-shifting in appearance, which adds to the horror of her looks. Both Arthur and Guinevere attempt to convince Ragnelle to hold the wedding privately to preserve both Gawain and Ragnelle’s honor, as other courtiers will no doubt ridicule them for the odd couple they make. Arthur’s knights are meant to be the best in England, with the most beautiful, noble wives. Certainly, Ragnelle is not the bride Gawain would have picked, given a real
Relationships, this seems to be the problem. It gets in the way of standardized individualism and issues in the future. Abigail was jealous of Mrs. Proctor because she really liked John Proctor and wanted Mrs. Proctor's life to end because according to Abigail, Mrs. Proctor was in the way of their love and devotion to each other. Enough about that Huckleberry Finn didn't want a life that was proper. A life where society meant everything.
During Jazz Age people’s spiritual values, traditions and customs were decaying. Lust had took over them and they could easily betray their spouses, just like Myrtle, Daisy and Tom in Great Gatsby. As myrtle’s sister had mentioned to Nick “neither of them can stand the person they’re married to” (p. 23). She proposed that if no one is happy in their marriage they should get divorce and get into a relationship that would satisfy them, because “you can’t live forever, you can’t live forever” (p. 24). Myrtle also suggested that morality has been long dead inside men and they “will cheat you every time.
They say I stink. Well, I tell you, you all of you stink to me” (Steinbeck, 65) and “A guy needs someone—to be near him, a guy goes nuts if he ain’t got nobody. Don’t make no difference who the guy is, long’s he’s with you. I tell ya, I tell ya a guy gets to lonely an’ he gets sick“(Steinbeck, 69), stating that he’s has no rights or freedom and excluded from every event and group. Finally, Steinbeck dehumanizes Curley by the negative criticism that always pursues her and her loss of identity when accompanying someone or something.
Jane hated that Mr. Rochester bought pretty jewelleries and dresses for her;” the more he bought me, the more my cheek burned with a sense of annoyance and degradation” (Brontë, 321). One can interpret this as Jane worries that the marriage would lessen her independence and put her at an inferior position. The fact that Mr. Rochester buys her all these things makes Jane feel objectified, and she could not tolerate it. Once again, this signals the feministic opinions that the character of Jane is associated with. Jane and Mr. Rochester does not get married during this section of the book, due to the fact that he is already in a marriage.
This relates to the theme of jealousy because Mr. Putnam is so jealous of other people’s land that he accuses them of witchcraft so they lose their belongings, and he can take it. In addition, Ann Putnam is Very jealous of Rebecca Nurse. Ann Putnam thinks she is cured because she has lost so many children and Rebecca Nurse has so many. Mrs. Putnam is telling the jury “You think it God’s work you should never lose a child, nor a grandchild either, and I burry all but one?” (Miller, 152) Ann is so jealous that she accuses goody nurse of witchcraft because she thinks Mrs. Putnam put a spell on her not to have kids. Mr. Putnam later says “When Reverend Hale comes; you will proceed to look for signs of witchcraft here.” (Miller, 152) As Arthur Miller reminded you, you can see jealousy is one of the worst emotions out there bringing the worst out of people?
