Later when Orion mentioned that he looked forward to the return of Artemis, Apollo accused him of sleeping with Artemis and taking her virginity. Orion objected and stated that he was a lover of men as was Apollo. This statement angered Apollo because he wanted everyone to believe he only loved women. Also, he was jealous of Orion 's obvious friendly affection toward Artemis. Therefore, Apollo tricked Artemis into killing Orion convincing her that Orion was the evil Candaan who had raped Opus....one of Artemis ' priestesses.
Claudio is characterizes as shallow in this instance because he is only commenting on his adoration for Hero’s beauty. When Don John tricks Claudio into believing Hero is no longer a pure women Claudio says “this is an accident of hourly proof, which I mistrusted not, Farewell therefore Hero!” (ii.1.175-176) One of Claudio’s major attraction towards Hero was her virtuousness, and now that he believes that she is no longer pure he has no desire to marry her. In fact, he wishes to publicly shame her in front of everyone at the wedding ceremony; ruining her chances to have a happy future. Young love is commonly based on looks causing the emotional relationship between the two people to be not as strong; thus causes the relationship to crumble and fall apart. Shakespeare sees this and is warning the audience to be weary of falling into the trap that is young
This perfect society is supposed to have everyone being equal in their own ways and nobody really different, yet the one group still not having the upper hand is women, much like today and in the past. In chapter 4 part 1 on page 63 Lenina enters a room and "was greeted by many friendly nods and smiles" who at one point "had spent a night with almost all of them." Lenina had slept with most of the men she saw in room and was very popular among the men. She was seen as a sex object. Again in chapter 3 on page 51 Bernard becomes upset as he overhears a conversation about
Angela is not a virgin when she gets married and her mother beats her “with such rage” that she thought “she was going to kill” her (46). Angela is so harshly punished for having premarital sex because her honor is ruined, but men can have sex with whomever whenever they want without any judgment or destroying of their honor. Here, a woman’s honor is determined by her virginity, while men can go about as they please and still be considered honorable. Also, men’s’ honor is affected by their expectations to defend the women in their lives. For example, “the Vicario brothers had told their plans to more than a dozen people” about killing Santiago in hopes of someone stopping them, because it is not in their character to murder a man.
When Nazareth gets in trouble for confessing love to an outside Linguist, her husband and father go on and on about how stupid she is, she screams “AND WHY DO YOU GO ON TALKING THEN? It was a scream, but it was silent” (Elgin, 198). She realizes exactly what her place in society and that there is no freedom with men, further cementing men as a different species. No matter what
This author believes that men in the Elizabethan era viewed women as untrustworthy and unfaithful by nature due to the frequent joking of cheating and cuckolding. Considering that the men believe Don Johns initial accusations against Hero, before they even ‘see’ her in the window, they vowed to shame her when it was proven. None of the men try to defend Hero before that night, because it would make perfect sense for a woman to be unfaithful in their
During Myrtle and Tom’s argument, he breaks her nose for the sole purpose of sending her the message that as long as she continues to have an affair with him, her feminine power will not be tolerated by him. Myrtle is accustomed to living an underprivileged life where feminine power engulfs her, but Tom is too egotistical to allow Myrtle to speak with such authority to him. Similarly, Gatsby’s need for assurance from Daisy pressures her into revealing to Tom that she never loved him (Fitzgerald 132). Deep down, Daisy knows that she truly did love Tom once, but Gatsby’s assertiveness and persistence drives her over the edge to telling Tom that what the two of them shared meant nothing to her. Daisy’s attribute of being a pushover is revealed immensely because she refuses to stand up for herself.
One way Miss Lonelyheart breaks the mold of the stereotypical is by rejecting the man that made advances on her even though she wanted love. Although she did reject him, she was still driven to suicide because she did not have the love she wanted. This could also demonstrate that she feels unworthy of love because of this man’s actions. Ultimately, this demonstrates her dependence on men for happiness. Miss Lonelyheart demonstrates a male dominated society by presenting the idea that women need men for
First of all, the character Othello’s love for his wife Desdemona is soiled by Iago putting false images into Othello’s head that his wife is being unfaithful to him which ultimately leads him to kill his own wife because of his vulnerability and insecurity towards the pure love he had for her. Othello starts to feel things that he has never felt before towards his wife, “I had rather be a toad/And live upon the vapor of a dungeon /Than keep a corner in the thing I love/For others' uses. Yet 'tis the plague of great ones” (3.3.311-14). Iago is planting the seeds for Othello’s relationship with Desdemona to crumble by putting images into Othello’s head about women and generalizing all women saying that they all act upon their temptations with no remorse. In these lines said by Othello, he is showing how someone’s deceit (having to do with his love for his wife) can really go as far as to make him criticize a whole entire gender based on one idea that his Desdemona has been unfaithful—and he does not even have proof that this accusation is true.
Curley’s wife gave up on her American Dream because she was scared if she waited too long she wouldn’t get anywhere. “Well, I wasn’t gonna stay no place where I couldn’t get nowhere or make something of myself, an’ where they stole your letters. I ast her if she stole it, too, an’ she says no. So I married Curley,” (88). In order for her to find happiness, she tempts other men because she is lonely and unhappy with the life she has.
