They barely knew each other and they just decided out of the blue to get married. People date before they get engaged and once people are engaged they get married after a span of time. Keeping in mind Romeo and Juliet were never engaged nor married. This goes to prove Romeo
Furthermore, Feminist Criticism provides a better view of literature because it shows that women can be powerful. When Emilia finds out that her husband has been plotting an evil plan she says,” Tis proper I obey him, but not now”(Othello V.2.195). Emilia refuses to help her husband after she finds the cruel intentions he has despite the expectation of women always being submissive to their husbands. Women also have a voice and feelings, they are capable of defying their husbands commands when they know what he expects is simply wrong. In a literary article,The Role of Women in Othello: A Feminist Reading states that,” Society weighs heavily on the shoulders of women; they feel that they must support the men and defer to them, even if the actions of the men are questionable” (Literary Articles).
We witness the lives of people she impacts, what happens to them, and how many times she lies to get her way. Abigail does all this for the man that she loves and had an affair with, John Proctor. If the reader begins to focus on John, his actions and what he stands for, they are easily able to recognize he portrays characteristics of the flawed nature of an individual. It is shown through the fact that he had an affair, isn’t able to forgive himself, and at the end of the book, is unable to give up something dear to him to save himself and others. When analyzing John Proctor, the first thing that stands out is that he had an affair with a 17 year-old Abigail Williams.
She stays home, and under the warmness of the sun, she begins her day dreaming about love and the boy she has met the night before. In the beginning, the author writes “Connie sat with her eyes closed in the sun…” (Oates 12), which means that Connie falls asleep after her family left. Then right in the same paragraph, Oates also tells us that “when [Connie] opened her eyes she hardly knew where she was...She shook her head as if to get awake.” This line shows that Connie is at the start of her dream because the only time we don’t know a place is when we is
Sanders displays his change in viewpoints through masterful uses of interior dialogue. This literary technique allows the reader to understand what the narrator is thinkinging as events unfold in front of him. When Anneke challenges Sanders’ view that women have a tougher existence in society, Sanders becomes confused and tries to blindly agree with her.
Janie’s first two husbands ended up basically being duds when it comes to pleasing and treating Jane properly. However, Janie appeared to have finally found her true happiness once she met Tea Cake. As I stated earlier Janie Crawford had two previous marriages before eventually meeting Tea Cake and neither of those marriages panned out well either. During her marriage with Logan Killicks she was treated very well for about a year, but soon he would turn her into his servant. Logan would then get her to help him with his framework, and make her feel less than what she should be feeling.
If humans carelessly continue to find love with people that they barely know, it could actually end up in a terrible relationship. Kristen Roupenian, author of the short story “Cat Person” shows this statement to prove itself true using various literary elements. The story she published in the New Yorker, shows the relationship that exists between a twenty-year-old woman named Margot and a thirty-four-years-old man known as Robert. A relationship always needs to contain a lot of trust and some communication between each other. She proves it by showing the character’s thoughts, by telling the story using the third person limited ()and also by making it appealing to our senses.
Their relationship doesn’t include any passion in it. When Ashima calls Ashoke, “instead of saying Ashoke’s name, she utters the interrogative that has come to replace it, which translates roughly as ‘Are you listening to me?’” (Lahiri 2). Ashima never called Ashoke by his name, even when she found out what his name was. As their relationship progressed, they began to love each other as husband and wife. When Ashima found out that her husband Ashoke had died from a heart attack, she was devastated (Lahiri 168).
The nineteen-year-old girl has never left her parents’ house as she lives her “first summer away from home” (9), whereas her partner has physical and psychological “scar[s]” (17) from the Vietnam war, in the “jungle” (18). This contrast between the two individuals’ origin shows the influence one has on the other in their relationship. They mutually help each other getting over their respective difficult reality by using their opposite characteristics. They are curious about discovering the other’s reality, as the girl wants to become an adult through a relationship with a war veteran and the man needs a hint of innocence. Having sex with a younger woman is therefore his solution to bury his scary souvenirs.
