First off, when Montag has just burned a house with a woman inside and is explaining his feelings to Mildred, she tells him to “let me alone, I didn 't do anything” (Bradbury 49). Montag is explaining that he does not like doing this as a fireman and that it is wrong, and his wife completely turns a cheek. She does not care that he is feeling this way and sees no wrong in it, showing that she does not see these things in the way Montag does. Next, in a similar situation when Montag is feeling unhappy Mildred says that she is “tired of listening to this junk” (Bradbury 62). Montag feels so terribly sad and feels that books might help and Mildred is appalled by this.
After Granny discovered Ella reading Bluebeard to Richard, she screams in disgust and Richard interrupts , “ “But, granny, she didn’t finish,” I protested, knowing that I should have kept quiet. She bared her teeth and slapped me across my mouth with the back of her hand.“You shut your mouth,” she hissed. “You don’t know what you’re talking about!” “But I want to hear what happened!” “ (39) . By employing a violent tone in the dialogue , Wright emphasizes how loud and angry he argued against Granny because he felt irritated by her interrupting the story . Granny’s angered tone demonstrates how negative she felt about Richard being exposed to violent books due to her religious beliefs that disapprove of them.
The wife rejects the label ‘lesbians’ ﴾by definition ‘women having sexual relations’﴿ not for the sake of her own heterosexuality, but simply in regard of her husband’s personal identification. Faced with the ‘terrible lies’ ﴾Kay 277﴿ and cruel scrutiny of the media, Millie views herself as ‘the only one who can remember [Joss] the way he wanted to be remembered’ ﴾Kay 40﴿, constantly seeking solace from fond memories only she has control over. Colman Moody’s perception of his father’s identity is another puzzle solved accordingly to the story’s progress. Initially ashamed and ‘so embarrassed [he] could emigrate’ ﴾Kay 48﴿, Colman displayed a rather rude and sulky attitude whenever digging into his early years alongside Joss. Nonetheless, though many have mistreated this mentality as LGBTQ+ prejudice, it is clearly pinpointed by Colman himself that “It's not because I hate gays or anything like that.
However, when a women is looked at just as herself and not as a rich man’s daughter she is not seen a colleague to men but as an object that is to be pitied. Another example where setting comes into play is the mood created when Mabel tries to kiss Dr. Ferguson after he rescues her. He doesn’t want to kiss her. It takes everything he has just to look at her, but at the same time he can not turn away and escape the look in her eye (Lawrence 463). This creates a sympathetic mood because Dr. Ferguson feels bad for Maybel who has just become poor and attempted to kill herself.
For example F. Scott Fitzgerald writes in The Great Gatsby, “‘She never loved you, do you hear?’ he cried. ‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart, she never loved anyone except me!’” (Gatsby, 137). In this passage, Gatsby and Tom are having a heated argument over who Daisy truly loves. Gatsby reveals that before he met Daisy, he was from the lower class.
Men are also faced with gender inequalities and gender role that they are forced to live up to my society. Men’s gender roles and inequalities should be taken into consideration, just like women’s inequalities are taken into consideration. At times no matter how many protests are held or how many posters are put up about gender inequalities, traditional concepts or methods are still derailing society. And that is why traditionally gender equality rules have been considered to be mainly as a “women’s issue” – as women have been a driving force behind gender equality approaches and struggles. This view has contributed to the awareness that women are the only ones who will benefit from a more equal
Here, Phoebe debunks every stereotypical view on love that was shown in the pastoral age, where lovers loved each other to painful lengths, where the mental pain of not being able to be with one another transformed into physical pain. Phoebe, seeming almost cynical in the way she is dismissing Silvius, simply states she does not believe in the myth of what love feels like. She assures Silvius this is not what he feels, because those feelings could simply not exist, and if that time ever comes, not to “pity” her, because she “shall not pity” him (3.5.34-35).
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).
Nevertheless, he does not listen and instead breaks her heart. Basil also utilizes candor when discussing Dorian’s change and corruption due to the influence of Lord Henry.

Overall, Basil just wants the person he used to know, but his friend does not understand the harmful effects of being under the influence of Lord Henry.
