Demetrius changes his love twice: Helena to Hermia, afterward it was Hermia to Helena. Lysander changes his love for Helena to Hermia, and next Hermia from Helena rather quickly too. The way Oberon drugs his wife for selfish reasons and never eventually tells her that she had been drugged, shows how unreliable he is with his love. Oberon would be willing to misuse his power to trick his queen into loving a horrible beast just for obtaining something that he wants He even mocks his queen by saying “there lies your love.” (Act IV,scene, Page 79). A few may argue that the love potion that caused many of these confusions, however that’s an insufficient excuse, it’s true that a couple of these events resulted because of the fairies.
Within The Scarlet Pimpernel, disguise is a prominent theme. Whether literally, such as dressing oneself as a ugly old hag, or the concealment of emotions , disguise is heavily seen throughout the novel. Not only does Sir Percy Blakeney disguise himself in a variety of ways, his wife does as well.From the very beginning of the story to the end, disguise is key. The reader's first introduction to the Pimpernel is of him under the disguise of an old hag. “ ‘Sacre tonnerre,’ said the captain, ‘but is it feared that it was that accursed Englishman himself---the Scarlet Pimpernel’”(pg 15, Orczy).
Dracula entertained the imagination of men and discussion of female sexuality. Due to the rigid class structure of the 19th century, mentioning sexual desires, adultery, and other ideas were too taboo to talk about. Lucy mentions this in Chapter 4 “Why can 't they let a girl marry three men, or as many as want her, and save all this trouble? But this is heresy, and I must not say it” (Stoker 60). Mina and Lucy both are first characterized as innocent and virtuous but are soon affected by Dracula’s interference and their image of purity is tarnished.
Men should stop degrading women as liars because men and women are equally capable of lying or at least, hiding who they truly are while they woo women. Consequently, if the marriage fails, husbands should stop blaming their wives for being the cause, since the stability of their relationship depends on both, especially their virtues as spouses. The real scoundrel is the husband who holds his wife responsible for their failed marriage when he may be the most deceiving person in the marriage if he keeps mistresses on the side. Men, not women, are the greatest deceivers, if they lie to women before and after marrying
Alcée asks Calixta about marrying Bobinôt because he knows that although he and Caixta have a natural love for each other, they cannot be together because of their societal standards. Also, the author writes, “Calixta’s senses were reeling; and they well-nigh left her when she felt Alcée’s lips brush her ear like the touch of a rose” (431). This is yet another example of Calixta’s and Alcée’s forbidden love because they express such strong feelings for each other, but they cannot actually be together. After Bobinôt asks Calixta to kiss him, she says, “I don’t want to kiss you, Bobinôt, not today. Some other time.
Einar has been lost to his seductive new identity. Einar or rather Lili is portrayed as selfish and almost insensitive to his wife’s pain in the scene. However, in Lili’s memoir Man into Woman, she is much more sympathetic and feels guilty for not being able to please Gerda. This incorrect representation may not have been the director’s intent, because the audience starts to feel less for Lili and more for Gerda. Another unclear representation lies in Lili’s historic operation.
Gender roles with man and women are viewed to be so different when in reality both are close to being equally the same. In the play “For The Men Who Still Don't Get It” Diehl, not only express how she feels about male dominance playing a huge role in society but the feelings a woman experiences due to men's actions and beliefs. When Diehl says “What if to many of your friends had been raped by women wielding giant dildos and no K-Y jelly¨. Only shows the control over women's body and changed gender roles with a men to a women to what a women would do if they were men. In The Vagina Monologues, Eve Ensler has a similar saying to Diehl.
When she says this, she means she does not love him as much as her sisters say they do, because it would not be fair to anyone else if she gave all her love to him and none to, for example, a husband. This is a major blow to the King, he feels entitled to all of Cordelia's love, yet is only allowed to have a portion of it. Cordelia's stance is just, for if she has no love left to give to her husband, she would not have any happiness in her life other than her own father. Lear does not see this however, and is highly offended by her lack of affection for him. This creates as awkward dynamic between the two, for the relationship he craves seems to romantic, yet Cordelia knows better than to allow this to be true.
He’s a horrible man, he doesn't show her love instead he treats her like garbage. No women don’t deserve guys like this, she seems afraid to leave him because she isn’t aware of her actions. I don’t like how she pushes herself saying why she loves him when she really doesn’t. Sadly I’ve noticed that she doesn’t have freedom unlike other
