Her anguish and anger was relatable by the audience because her sorrow and grief symbolises an average woman of her time who would have reacted in a similar way after a loss of her husband. However she transforms herself into an evil master mind and labels her husband and his new wife as her enemy. Her pursuit of revenge and will of making 'corpses of three of her enemies' flips the whole scenario as well as her characteristics. By this time she becomes a distinct character and no longer remains a typical woman. This clearly shows the hidden strength of a woman which was suppressed by men.
Because of this, the daughter has turned into a disobedient girl and will do anything to go against the wishes of her mother. This disobedience only adds to the conflict which is not good for either of the two. The mother then finds out that she has breast cancer. Lola, the daughter, has no sense of empathy towards the mother. They still fight like crazy.
In the beginning of the story Georgiana is characterized as being a foolish young girl that is extremely weak. She is dependent on other people's judgment and when her husband hates her birthmark that everyone thought made her so beautiful she asks him, “Then why did you take me from my mother's side? You cannot love what shocks you!”(page 1, paragraph 6). She was dependent on her mother to tell her what to do constantly and how she told her she was so beautiful, therefore, when she had a change in scenery it was confusing to her. After being told multiple times a day that he could not stand to look at her she figures out that when she compliments him she receives compliments in return.
Arguably one of the most influential writers in all of existence, William Shakespeare 's work is continuing to be told and inspires similar works throughout American literary works today. Different renditions of his plays in spin-offs and parodies can be found in the hundreds in just movies alone, even 400 plus years after his death. These plays and sonnets are memorable due to their raw emotion and exaggerated turmoils. The life and experiences of William Shakespeare are quite simplistic for such an influential and intricate writer such as
She is evil because she prays for spirits to give her the strength to turn emotionless. Lady Macbeth could be seen as truly evil for asking the spirits to fill her up with cruelty. However, by the end of the play, she is so consumed with guilt from her actions, that she kills herself. As Malcolm informed the crowd, “Fiendish queen, who took her own life,”(V,vii, 205). By the end of the play, Lady Macbeth felt guilty about her role in the murders.
She comes to her sister Stella because of her troubled past. She is an emotionally fueled character. Each time something in her life goes wrong, she wants to take a bath to calm her nerves. She constantly talks down on her sister and looks down on her lifestyle. She also talks down upon Stanley quite often.
Lady Macbeth is talking in her sleep, aimlessly wandering, and overall just generally acting very strange, this alone is a sign of her extreme guilt. It becomes crystal clear that she regrets what she has done when she later ends her own life, as she is unable to live with what her and her husband had done in order to get where they are. What they had done together had very clearly ruined their lives, and Lady Macbeth realized and regretted it all towards the end. She showed true remorse for killing the guards, making it clear that at the very least she knew what she did was wrong. When someone does something this wrong, one of the only ways you can truly determine whether they are “evil” or not is if they feel guilt or show remorse for their actions, both of which Lady Macbeth did in excess since she loses her mind and goes on a rant saying: Out, damn'd spot!
Love is parasitic. Oftentimes perceived positively, it silently renders its host subservient to lust, irrationality, anger, and vengeance. The manipulative Greek sorceress Medea falls victim to this curse in Euripides’ tragedy Medea, where after falling deeply in love, her husband Jason leaves her for another woman. Heartbroken, she goes on a murderous crusade to exact her revenge that even results in the death of her children. Aspects of Medea’s quest are apparent in the relationships in Jesmyn Ward’s coming of age novel centered around Hurricane Katrina, Salvage the Bones.
As already mentioned, one of the best attributes of Helena Bonham Carter’s performance is the humanisation of Miss Havisham represented through her acting. She shows different emotions of Miss Havisham, therefore contrasting with other performances that only show a deathly serious character. Thus it is possible for the spectator to understand the complexity of her character, and not seen her only as a mad evil ‘creature’. The scene with little Estella at two coming to Satis House emphasises even more that aspect in Miss Havisham, and plays a key role in this film. Gillian Anderson’s performance can be considered particularly original because she gives Miss Havisham a child-like aspect, with a little girl’s voice.
Especially in the case of Tereza, dreams communicate unconscious insecurities and feeling of love, dependence, betrayal, anger and guilt which she might not express. Nightmares haunt Tereza’s sleep, reflecting her body issues and insecurity about Tomas’ adultery. She has become so discontent with her and Tomas’ relationship that she dreams continually of his abandonment and her suicide. Influenced by Tomas’ actions during the day, Tereza 's jealousy is made clear by Kundera’s usage of symbolic
