‘No, not him!’…And now, down it dives towards the man she wants immune to her words’’ (Page 84). The bird attacking Dr. Payne displays Yolanda’s fear of her own words, the fear that the language she speaks will hurt her loved ones. She is threatened of the hostile words that will transpire from her, and due to her dismay she will harm everyone around her. Her character develops as someone who is fearful of her highly advanced intelligence, and that her fear will consume her identity of never being able to communicate properly again. The black bird is used once again as a representation of Yolanda’s mental distress.
The long standing-family feuding and fate is ultimately to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths. Some people may think that Romeo and Juliet are ultimately to blame for their own deaths, because they both killed themselves. They are wrong, the
Many may think that in the story “The Lady, or the Tiger?” By Frank R. Stockson the lady came through the door, In fact the tiger was the one that came through the door because the princess hated the lady that was behind the door and she would never let her lover be married to someone whom she hates. The other reason is that the princess knows that they glared at each other when they were together so she knows there’s something going on between them two. The first reason is that the princess absolutely hated the princess. In the story Stockton says “ The girl was lovely, but she had dared to raise her eyes to the loved one of the princess; and, with all intensity of the savage blood transmitted to her through long lines of wholly barbaric ancestors, she hated the woman
In Act 2, Oberon puts a love potion on Titania as a trick to make her fall in love with a beast. “I will place the pollen from the flowers loin Titania's eyelids so that the next thing she sees- be it lion, bear, wolf, or bull- she will fall madly in love with, and I will get that boy.”(5) Oberon controls Titaina with a love potion to make her fall in love with a hideous beast because he is angry that she won't give him the little boy. In anger he is controlling his wife to get what he wants. In the same Act, Oberon tells his fairy servant Puck… “All I want is that little human boy she keeps.” Oberon wants the little boy to make him into his own henchman, but Titania will not let him have the boy because she feels responsible for the child when his mom
The narration was told through stain glass windows, beginning the story with a French Prince named Adam who has a lack of empathy and his judgement of appearance towards others. After denying an old beggar woman for shelter on a cold night, he finds out that the woman is actually an Enchantress and turns him into a beast. The only way the curse can be broken is if the Beast receives love in return along with him learning to love before time is up. The time is dictated by a rose that the old beggar woman offered the Beast. One of the main character’s Belle offers to take her father’s place as being a prisoner when her father Maurice is caught trespassing.
It is most likely that the Tiger came out of the door because the Princess was too jealous of the Lady that the Criminal/Lover might’ve married. After the princess had bribed the guards who ran the Tiger/Lady arena, she found out what each door had behind it. She didn’t share this information with the Lover, so that she could choose what was best. She wouldn’t want him to live with the lady, as she thought, “Would it not be better for him to die at once, and go to wait for her in the blessed regions of semibarbaric futurity?” (Stockton 36). This quote supports my thinking perfectly because she wouldn’t want the man to live with the lady.
When Sage asks why he is so desperate to die, he replies, “Because I should be dead, Sage. It’s what I deserve” (47). Many attempts were made before asking Sage for help. With how much he is hurting inside for his actions in the past shows the regret he is sensing. This demonstrates how the past can restrict one from doing what they want and what they love.
Perhaps the character who played this biggest part in the tragedy was Lord Capulet, Juliet's father. There are several reasons why Lord Capulet is to be blamed for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. His decision to force Juliet to get married, his contribution of the family feud, and his decision to change the day of the marriage. The main reason I think Lord Capulet is to blame is because he forced Juliet to get married. Him forcing Juliet to get married only left Juliet two choices and that was to either run away or get married, and of course we all know that her getting marred to anyone but Romeo wasn't an option.
In the movie they make her character beautiful and seductive. She is so attractive that even the strongest of men would fall to her and be defeated such as beowulf. But Grendel's mom is actually really evil and places curses on men that she seduces. In both the movie and the poem she attacks and kills thanes in the meadhall because of the lost of her son, grendel. One example of her attacks is on line 411-414 it says “she Took a single victim and fled from the hall, running to the moors, discovered, but her supper assured, sheltered in her dripping claws.
Further, Lady Macbeth would “dashed the brains out” of “the babe that milks me”. The violence and harm she would do to her child causes alarm and adds to her villinous character. This is contrasted with Lady Macduff’s gentle and carring tone she has with her son in Act 4 Scene 2 when she calls him “monkey”. Pet names show closeness and affection which clearly would lack from Lady Macbeth and her child, as she would kill it if she promised to. Therefore, the women’s supernatural and distrubing characteristics are demonstrated through their ambiguity or desire to rid themselves of feminine
Both of these cats showed flaws of each owner in their story and resulted in death for both owner. The grandmother selfishly hid Pitty Sing without telling her son Bailey. The main characteristic she shows is selfishness and later the cat springs onto Bailey causing him to flip the car over. Bailey did not like bringing the cat with on trips, and the grandmother brought him knowing that because they would miss each other too much. Pluto showed his owner was unreliable and dangerous because he would switch from loving animals to hurting them.
Another significant grudge that Lord Capulet held was against the Montagues, this meant that Romeo and Juliet had to be together in secret, this would end up leading to both of their deaths. “Two households, both alike in dignity, IN fair Verona, where we lay our scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes. A pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life; whose misadventur’d piteous overthrows. Doth with their death bury their parents’ strife?
The princess in “The Lady or the Tiger” struggles when determining the youth’s fate of death or marriage to another beautiful lady and asks herself “Which [door]? [The answer] was as plain to her as if he shouted it from where he stood. There was not an instant to be lost. The question was asked in a flash; it must be answered in another” (302). Up until the last second, the youth that the princess had loved believes that she will spare him; he has a blind faith in the princess and trusts in her choices.
The myth of Pyramus and Thisbe is a great example of the character archetype “The star-crossed lovers” because it describes a love affair that was disapproved of from the start and ended tragically. Pyramus and Thisbe being kept apart snuck away to meet each other at the white mulberry tree. The bloody lion (fate) stepped into the story by scaring away Thisbe leaving nothing by her veil ( representing her presence) now bloody and torn for Pyramus to see. Believing she was murdered, he stabbed himself because he couldn’t bear to live without her. Thisbe not wanting to disappoint her lover came out of hiding only to see his corpse on the ground.
She says, “Did ever a dragon keep so fair a cave? Beautiful tyrant! Fiend angelical!” (178). This shows the feeling that Juliet has about Romeo and how he could be a terrible person for killing Tybalt, but he is also Juliet’s husband and she loves him more than anything else. This echos Friar Lawrence’s comments about the flower because the flower will strengthen you if you smell it but will kill you if you eat it.
