The people of Maycomb have no sympathy for Mayella or what is happening in her broken down home until they realize a colored man is involved. Tom Robinson is innocent of this crime but citizens of Alabama would never want to admit two white people are lying and a colored man is telling the truth. “Yes, suh. I felt sorry for her, she seemed to try more’n the rest of ‘em--” (Lee 264). Tom Robinson only wanted to help Mayella with her chores out of pure kindness when Mayella kissed him.
After the exile of Oedipus, Creon became the king of Thebes, which placed a lot of power in his hands. With this sudden shift in authority, Creon's tragic flaw becomes more noticeable. When in an argument with Haemon, Creon's son, he states his position on the opposite sex, “If we must fall from power, let that come at some man’s hand—at least, we won’t be called inferior to any women” (353). This reveals his excessive pride, hubris, because he worries that his image would be tarnished if ever doing something imposed by a women. With this condescending perspective, he is led to believe that he is above all others, which leads to his free choice.
As a result of her affair, she becomes pregnant and has a beautiful daughter named Pearl. For her punishment, she must stand on the scaffold in front of lots of people holding her child. She is forced to wear a red “A” on her chest as a reminder to the community and herself of her adultery. In comparison to the other cases during the sixteenth and seventeenth century, Hawthorne describes her treatment and punishment as slightly less severe. Although Hester’s punishment is embarrassing and terrible, people who committed adultery were given harsher punishments typically.
The first reason why is this, because it 's a Hollywood 's movie created more on entertainment purpose than history showing. To fit a wider audience, only a few British were shown as bad and cruel, for example Tavington, he after people gave away wht he needed he still blocked church 's doors, trapping people inside and he orders to burn the church. Others are displayed dissaproving this kind of actions and even a war, but because of their lower rank they couldn 't do anything. Other reason the main character of the movie is patriot, so movie has to reflect his love for the country, dedication and optimism no matter
Despite their passionate love for each other, their difference in wealth and social standing ultimately hinders their path to marriage. Throughout Pride and Prejudice, Austen mocks the social norms of 19th century England by showing how the marriage standards constricts individuals from following their hearts. Although Austen successfully satirizes the social limitations on the individual, 1984 is more effective because Orwell strategically utilizes dramatic scenarios to send a warning to his readers. The extremities Ingsoc takes to suppress the citizens in their society leaves a strong impact on readers. For example, the Thought Police’s purpose is to forbid freedom of
The source of Myrtle and George Wilson’s problems is that they have different viewpoints on each other which lead to Myrtle’s dissatisfaction with him. George’s successful look and behaved manner made Myrtle have the incentive to marry him. She believed that George would be able to financially take care of her. When explaining why Myrtle married George, she states that she “‘married him because [she] thought he was a gentleman…[she] thought he knew something about breeding, but he wasn’t fit to lick [her] shoe’” (Fitzgerald 34). Though her speech, one can observe that Myrtle only cared about money and was dissatisfied with George as she says that George “‘wasn’t fit to lick [her] shoe.’” The figurative language present uncovers how she had such scorn and resentment to George, as he was not at her level..
Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter is a story of how Hester Prynne committed a sin and is punished but learns to live with herself with her daughter. According to Benjamin Kilbourne, in his article “Shame Conflicts and Tragedy in The Scarlet Letter,” the” ‘A’ of Hester Prynne, shed light on what makes shame unbearable, and on what makes shame conflicts tragic” (465). Dimmesdale, Hester lover that is a preacher, and Chillingworth, Hester husband also had much shame throughout the book, the two-character showed different types of shame, but they both felt similar. Another thought from Kilbourne has he thought The Scarlet Letter was a very well-written novel with different disputes and how the people showed shame in different ways (465). The essay is about the minor shame of Hester and major shame of Dimmesdale and the tragedy in the novel.
He suggests that they could have had better sex than modern people, who are supposed to be less suppressed. John Fowles highlights that repression magnifies sexual satisfaction, due to the added thrill of participating in something forbidden. Although the novel shows that the sexual suppression has a destructive impact, it ironically argues that it can be a source of pleasure. The author points out that the history is always described from the point of view of the privileged. For this reason, modern people imagine that all Victorians behaved like the representatives of the middle and upper classes, that is not true.
The characters that Malvolio is troubled with are of a higher class, and typically hold more power than he had. That being said, the apparent division and maltreatment present between himself and the other characters cannot be fully laid upon those who mistreat him. Malvolio was looked at as an unpleasant, foreign, and humorless man in comparison to the other characters who foil, or put emphasis on his negative qualities. Maria, Olivia’s housemaid, describes Malvolio as “sometimes a kind of puritan” (Shakespeare, 2.3.140). This is a harsh division as Sir Toby, a kinsman to Olivia (who is a countess), is often inebriated, an activity that Malvolio never participates in.
The Puritans were by far the most prudish and pedantic society in existence. “Puritan’s tolerance to sins against the Christian doctrine was very miniscule if any” (Weldon, n.d). On an apparent notice, Hester’s punishment was lenient but a closer inspection shows that the mental and emotional trauma of her punishment was crueler than initial anticipation. The magistrates wanted her and her sin to exist within their society hoping that this would bring unfathomable guilt to the male perpetrator and ultimately lead to him being brought to justice. So in hindsight, her punishment was more or less altered by this secret she hid within
