He chastises her for eating sweet treats, for leaving him on his own while she worked and for dancing too wildly during her rehearsal of the tarantella. Nora flatters him and lies to him when trying to persuade him to employ Kristina and demeans herself in the hope that he’ll show mercy to Krogstad, “your squirrel will scamper about and do all her tricks, if youll be nice and do what she asks.” Torvald labels her “irresponsible” and refuses to be made a “laughing stock” by listening to his wife. He spitefully sacks Krogstad because Nora wounds his pride by calling him “petty” and then decides to “forgive” her. The final door slam in the final scene is
Lear said awful things to his daughter about an evil child. At this point he leaves and then the next scene shows the daughters meeting and holding hands. They are allying one and another versus the king. They have the king where they want them. Lear is the one who cannot control people and other people are being very ratical with him.
He want’s everyone to like him, for this reason he always seems to be paranoid about what people are thinking of him. We see this in the play when Parris finds out that his daughter and niece were dancing in the woods, Parris hides this fact from the judges to save his reputation. This is all ironic because ministers are supposed
Jenni Olson herself writes “…prompts his double talking and double acting to maintain his tough guy image.” (Olson 78). Sandy and Danny really do like each other, but they face a lot of peer pressure from their friends. The peer pressure forces Danny to act like a jerk to Sandy and exaggerate their summer romance. This provides a divide between the two that is reinforced by bad girl Rizzo who sings “Look At Me, I’m Sandra Dee” making fun of Sandy, saying she is just a good girl. Rizzo also mentions whilst talking with Frenchy that Sandy is “too pure to be pink” saying that Sandy would not fit in with their group.
Gus who is Lars’s brother at the beginning acts like the big tough brother who cares what everybody thinks of him. Margo is a woman who works with Lars and seems to be a high spirited and a little shy. Bianca is the doll that Lars pretends is real. I think that at the beginning Karen shows a little abnormal behavior because she seems a little over bearing trying to get Lars to do things he does not want to do. At one point Karen even seems to tackle
Everyone is dancing and having fun. Suddenly Tybalt, a nephew of Lady Capulet, and therefore a cousin of Juliet, Romeo learns in a hostile family representative. Signor Capulet stops hotheaded Tybalt, Romeo recognizing young noble qualities such as virtue and courtesy. Forced to accept externally, leaves Tybalt anger at himself. But Romeo did not notice anything.
The sub-plot however, has Gloucester and his two sons Edger and Edmund. Lear the dumb king, wanting to feel some affection, gives his daughters a love-test to measure how much his daughters love him the most. “Which of you shall we say doth love us most...” (First Scene, First Act). The oldest daughters Regan and Goneril deceives the king by speaking highly of him, full of nice words which gets them rewarded
The Narrator thought, “Her officer—why should he have a name?” (Carver, 2) Evidently, the imbecilic Narrator was feeling jealous through his thoughts and actions. The Narrator is also jealous of Richard. Later on, before Richard came over, the Narrator says, “Maybe I could take him bowling” (Carver, 3). Even though the Narrator thought that he was amusing, his wife rejected the joke. After hearing this, she said, “If you love me..you can do this for me.
Huck is in a town with the King and the Duke, when they meet a family. The first think Huck noticed is that one of the girls there, Mary Jane, was beautiful. As the King and the Duke do, they began to rob Mary Jane of her money. For awhile, this doesn't mind Huck, until one day he begins to start feeling incredible guilty. His once silent conscious, now filled with morals, begins to knock some sense into Huck.
Oberon (Titania’s husband) has his loyal servant Puck drug Titania to fall in love with the next thing she sees when she wakes up. Oberon does this because Titania has a small boy she is charge of and Oberon is needy and wants the boy simply because Titania told him no. When Bottom starts singing, still unaware he has the head of an ass, he wakes up Titania who under the power of the drug, immediately falls in love with him. Bottom of course in his arrogant fashion, doesn’t question how this random stranger is now totally and inevitably in love with him. Titania is so head over heels in love with Bottom she becomes delirious.
In ‘My Last Duchess’ the duke couldn’t love his wife as she was too flirtatious and too easily made happy. The monologues satiric condemnation of the duchess as she “liked whate’er/She looked on” and “blushed” as “she thanked men” is heavy in irony, for in each criticism he bestows on the late duchess, the duke reveals his own distasteful nature. This is in stark contrast to Porphyria’s lover, who killed out of a warped sense of love. The speakers desperation to keep his lover forever and shut out society’s unjust rules on social standings, led him to “strangle her”, which is also a metaphor for being strangled by his emotions, subtly reaching for sympathy from the audience. Browning unexpectedly introduced love into a poem about murder, by using techniques such as metaphors and personification to give the speaker an indirect motive,
