Austen 's Pride and Prejudice book shows the differences and similarities of the marriage relationships in the 18th century, through the marriage relationships of Charlotte, Lydia, Jane, and Elizabeth. Jane naturally found someone to marry, her attractive beauty and accessible joyful character helped her easily attract Bingley to her. Young Lydia married Wickham, but she did not know anything about marriage yet. Elizabeth fell in love with Darcy because she realized that he is a special person and that her assumption of him was totally incorrect. On the other hand, Charlotte married Mr. Collins for the reason that she wanted to be secure.
Meeting Pip was the first instance of this that the readers saw. She did not even wait to learn about him before formulating her opinion of him. She judged him, (to Miss Havisham’s approval) only on the fact that he is male, and a common one at that: “Though she called me “boy” so often, and with a carelessness that was far from complimentary…She was as scornful of me as if she had been one-and-twenty, and a queen” (Dickens 32). If she wasn’t brainwashed to automatically feel hatred towards Pip, they could have become quick friends, and maybe even had fallen in love, which would prevent almost every conflict in this book from happening. At first the readers just think it is due to the disgust shown towards Pip, but later in the book they find out that she actually just does not want to hurt him.
Within The Scarlet Letter Hawthorne developed characters that can be related to. By Hawthorne mentioning his Puritan ancestors in the beginning of his book shows that he studied the topic of puritanism before talking about it. Hester Prynne was a character well developed by Hawthorne who goes through problems that society could possibly go through. In Hawthorne's novel The Scarlet Letter before the novel began critics talked about the book and the characters, and gave a good description to Hester Prynne as a “Creation of someone who loved woman, saw her, as verdi did, as necessary tragic and alone, but emotionally sacred in a diminished world (Hawthorne).” This description of Hester was a excellent when it came to describing her as a bit of a outcast among her peers. As mentioned beforehand Nathaniel Hawthorne was born in Salem, Massachusetts in 1804 and but he passed away in 1864 in Plymouth, New

Barnes opens the novel with Anne’s marriage to Henry. This novel is written as a form of entertainment but its rich with history at least in some parts. Barnes takes some historical liberties with some inaccuracies and contrived potlines such as the bubbling romance between Anne and the tudors court painter, Hans Holbein. Barnes bring Anne to life with new personality traits that are believable. The biggest issue with My Lady of Cloves is there is a lack of a climax.
In conclusion, “Paul’s Case” is a short story that a person needs to take time to read in order to understand it. Willa Cather first had readers view Paul as an unsympathetic character, but towards the end of it, she used narration, dialogue, and description so the readers would view him in a sympathetic way. I personally did view Paul as a weird character because he seemed to have a weird smile on his face that the author emphasized on in the beginning, and was said to be a lair. But, as I continued to read, I got to see who Paul really was, and the struggles he was going through. I compared this story to “Sonny’s Blues” by how Sonny wanted to be a musician, but his brother did not see anything good to come out of that, but Sonny wanted to follow what he loved.
The reason for this is because of the use of the first-person pronouns “I” and “We”. By using a central narrator in the novel this allows the reader to read the character, in this case Holden’s, thoughts although this limits the point of view in the novel with respect to experience and thoughts. Holden is believed to be a reliable character but in fact he is unreliable with inaccurate judgement and in often cases lies to himself and by doing this lies to the reader simultaneously. Holden even says, “I 'm the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life. If I 'm on the way to the store to buy a magazine, even, and somebody
Surprisingly couple of pundits watch this, and one of the first to have done as such, Naomi Mitchison in 1930, inquisitively enough finds the two works "incompatible", in spite of the fact that they concentrate on similar issues (963). Tristram, then again, guesses that Civilization and Its Discontents may have influenced Lawrence to acknowledge he had more in the same way as Freud than he thought, had he had sufficient energy to peruse it before he passed on (139). Before moving on to the investigation, it is important to define some Freudian expressions that will be utilized as a part of the paper. Freud's hypotheses can appear to be odd, even strange, so it is best to remember that the vast majority of the ideas he uses ought to be viewed as hypothetical developments or allegories for how the human mind functions, instead of as thoughts regarding genuine wonders. The theme Civilization and Its Discontents proposes, Freud there investigates how civilization influences the individual contrarily.

According to Austen’s novel, the deception created by our imagination can be visibly seen through the various letters given and written in this novel. As presented in the novel, “Jane’s solicitude about fetching her own letters had not escaped Emma. She has heard and seen it all; and felt some curiosity to know whether the wet walk of this morning had produced any. She suspected that it had; that it would not have been so resolutely encountered but if full expectation of hearing from someone very dear, and that it had not been in vain.
She once told her sisters that they were wrong – even morally wrong – in making their heroines beautiful as a matter of course. They replied that it was impossible to make a heroine interesting on any other terms. Her answer was, “I will prove to you that you are wrong; I will show you a heroine as plain and as small as myself, who shall be as interesting as any of yours (Gaskell 235).
