Janie, at first, doubts Tea Cake loves her because of her age and then, on account of her fortune, fears he may have married her only to run off with her money. However, Tea Cake proves through and through that he loves Janie for Janie and treats her with love accordingly. Though Janie and Tea Cake’s marriage is not perfect, (such as when he beats her to show Mrs. Turner and her brother that he is in possession of Janie) she has found the “bee for her bloom” in Tea Cake. Willingly, unlike with Killicks who would have forced her, Janie works with her husband in the fields when she and Tea Cake make a home in the Everglades (184–185). When jealousies arise through the flirtation of Nunkie, a girl who takes a liking to Tea Cake, Janie and Tea Cake fight but talk through and express their feelings over the flirtation to one another until each gives in and they become united once more (188–191).
The Witches are mainly portrayed as ugly hags who find joy in the suffering of others, at least in my honest opinion that’s how they are portrayed. The witches approached Macbeth soon after his victory to tell him their prophecy. The witches chose this time in particular because Macbeth would be drunk with the sweet
Hermia respond is that she's done her best to get rid of him (because she loves Lysander). Helena wines: “Helena: O that your frowns would teach my smiles such skill! /O that my prayers could such affection move!” (Act 1, Scene 1, Page 8). When Hermia tells her that it's not her fault, Helena says: “Helena: None but your beauty; would that fault were mine!” (Act 1, Scene 1, Page 8). This caused a lot of tension and conflict between the 2 characters.
Also he felt unwanted by Diana. Since Diana treats Mr. Austen like this she must not feel the same way about him. The short story “The Chaser” is an example of how men get treated badly and unequally because they do so much for the women but the women doesn’t seem to care on what they do. In conclusion, the story the chaser shows feminist criticism because Mr. Austen felt like he needs to get a love potion for Diana. In this case, Diana has the full control in the relationship.
“Your words mean nothing when your actions are the complete opposite.” In Shakespeare's the tragedy of Macbeth Lady Macbeth is often viewed as evil by her actions when its the complete opposite; she is just misunderstood. She is misunderstood because she shows signs of weakness, and by the end of the play she is filled with guilt causing her to commit suicide. Lady Macbeth is misunderstood, not totally evil, because she shows signs of weakness and guilt. Lady Macbeth had to ask for help from evil spirits to follow through with killing Duncan, which shows she was not totally evil.“Come, you spirits that serve the thoughts of mortals: rid me of the natural tenderness of my sex and fill me from head to toe with direst cruelty!” (I, v, 39-42) Lady Macbeth did not think she could go through with killing someone because she was a weak woman and thought a man was more capable of killing someone. Later on in the play, Lady Macbeth was hallucinating and admitting what she had done while washing imaginary blood off of her hands.
That creates a pretty dark and hostile mood. Billy Weaver, a 17-year-old boy who travels to Bath, England on business. Along the way, he catches sight of a bed and breakfast and is strangely charmed by the sign outside the door and the cozy setting within, so he decides to put up there for the night. He is greeted by a middle-aged, cheerful, and talkative landlady, who insists upon sitting and conversing with the young man. Also she demands
“A Rose for Emily” where a woman poisons the man she loves so that he won’t leave her. This essay will develop the comparisons and contrasts between these characters. The similarities between the characters will begin the essay, the first similarity is that the Landlady and Emily kill using poison. For instance, the Landlady used Potassium Cyanide while Miss Emily used Arsenic. The second similarity is they kill out of passion, for example the Landlady in lust wants many men, while Emily out of love only wants Homer Barron.
273). By doing this, Billy’s mother prevents him from developing sexually, but through sexual intercourse with Candy, he is able to briefly revive his manhood. Once Nurse Ratched threatens to call his mother however, fearing what may happen, Billy commits suicide. For contrast purposes, Kesey portrays the nurse in charge of the disturbed ward as the ideal authoritative female in between Nurse Ratched and the whores (Candy and Sandy); a kind and nurturing woman who bandages McMurphy and flirts with
Thinking and fearing all sorts of dangers… She rather found herself angry at imaginary people who might try to criticize” (Hurston 125). Unlike with previous marriages, she actually worried about Tea Cake and would be willing to protect him. The happy feelings that Tea Cake had given Janie are told after his death. When Janie is thinking of Tea Cake, the book explains that “The kiss of his memory made pictures of love and light against the wall. Here was peace” (Hurston 193).
Although, poor Billy was once mesmerized by the old lady, failing to realize her real, haunting self. “Not in the least,” she said. “I stuff all my little pets myself when they pass away. Will you have another cup of tea?” “No, thank you,” Billy said. The tea tasted faintly of bitter almonds, and he didn’t much care for it.”(Dahl, 2) Billy shows his naive characteristics as he does not question as he learned his landlady stuffs her animals.
