Othello is also counting on the fact that Barbantio once loved him. Ruth Vanita claims that Othello is also a good husband who has an intense love for his wife Desdemona, ‘’the difference between Othello and Shakespeare’s other jealous husbands...is the far greater depth and intensity of Othello’s love for his wife’’ (1). Othello’s devotion to Desdemona is nothing in comparison to Shakespeare’s other husbands. Othello is deeply and utterly in love with Desdemona. Desdemona’s father accuses Othello of using magic to get Desdemona to fall for him but Othello reassures him that he does not use magic, he just tells stories.
The character still adheres to traditional concepts of femininity imposed by her male creator. This can be shown, again, in Wonder Woman’s overly sexual appearance. Apart from its unsuitability for children, Wonder Woman’s sexuality also highlighted her traditional femininity, which balances out her strength, a traditionally male characteristic, in order for Wonder Woman to remain desirable (Finn 16). In addition, his idea of the powerful woman as guided by love is inherently a concept based on gender stereotypes
Kate Chopin, in “The Story of an Hour” provides us how society describes Mrs. Mallard’s husband as the perfect man in marriage and by presenting the readers with a woman who is clearly overjoyed of the fact of her husband’s death. This is to describe Mrs. Mallard’s emotions as she swings back and forth from being miserable to extreme joy at her newfound freedom. Now this can foster imagination and imply as if Mrs. Mallard had a deep inner life that is not connected to the outside world of her husband or friends. This is the fact that she confines herself in her room just to discover her feelings and interests are important. Unlike the reality of her outside world which was minimally described the narrator but inside Mrs. Mallard’s mind offers something that is lively and well
In her review of the book for the New Yorker, she writes “’Gone Girl’ is as much about the near impossibility of being a good husband as it is about the anguish of being a good wife” (37). This statement shows that Elif would likely be very appreciative of Nick for how he chose to stay with Amy for the good his family and child. Many readers and reviewers of the book will simply take its message as feministic or antifeminist, but Elif recognizes that the book also has a lot to say about the situations of men in regards to selfishness and sacrifices. She writes, “Where a more simplistic narrative would posit that every loss for women is a gain for men, Flynn shows again and again that nobody is a winner – everyone is a dupe”.
He is telling his son to be friendly with people, but to not become too attach to them, while being in dominate of the society by being true to himself. Moreover, Polonius is also being in control of his daughter, stating what she can and cannot do, in order to protect her from Hamlet. In addition, the masculinity of gender is also shown in Raisin in the Sun. Hansberry exemplifies how males are suppose to be the on in dominate of the society and how they should do what is best for their women. The protagonist of Raisin in the Sun, Walter stated, “ I tell you I am a man- and I think my wife should wear some pearls in this world!” (Hansberry 1530).
Courtly love suggests that jealousy strengthens relationships and equates to love. Alison did not feel more for her partner but instead wanted to get away from his overbearing attitude. John however truly loves his wife, “Alas, my wife! And shall she drown? Alas, my Alison” (The Miller’s Tale 414-145).
The embellishment of the daughter’s love by taking advantage of their father through flattery is the basis for the final quote of the play as Edgar remarks about the consequences of lies and manipulation rather than speaking from the heart. Though Regan and Goneril replied to a dramatic degree of which they love their father, Lear interrogated her by exclaiming, “What can you say to draw a third more opulent than your sisters? Speak” (Lear 1.1.87-88). Filled with power, Lear spoke to his daughters in an arrogant tone as he hinted that his inheritance is related to how much love they profess towards him. In response, Cordelia answers of nothing, beginning a string of repetition of the word “nothing” each with various syntax and punctuation to show the tension building between the father and daughter relationship.
Although Roderigo is misled by Iago’s he still keeps his mental and emotional state normal with little doubt, until the end. Othello puts so much trust into Iago, claiming that he is “full of love and honesty” that he doubts his wife, and everyone that Iago says is suspicious. His mental state gets affected greatly and is even more inclined to believe in Iago, even promoting him to lieutenant. Iago reassures him even more pleading himself to Othello saying “I am your own
He says “And so, good Capulet, -- which name I tender as dearly as my own” (A3.S1). This shows how, despite everything Tybalt has said about Romeo, the Montagues, and the hatred he has for their family name Romeo still treats him as family simply because he has the same last name as his wife. In addition Juliet is arranged to marry County Paris because of his good name and his good reputation and not because of who he really is, which contradicts the point Shakespeare makes when he shows that both Juliet and Romeo don’t care about each other's last names because it does show that a name defines a person and their
Also, the quote from the congressman that reads “He [John Murphy] married her [widow of Mr. Harris, the first victim], and is happy and respected and prosperous yet. Ah, it was like a novel, sir - it was like a romance” provides the mood that contradicts the earlier part of the story (Twain). The ironical statements provides antithetical moods or other aspects that further enriches the humorous
