I give him curses, yet he gives me love... The more I hate, the more follows me... His folly, Helena, is no fault of mine"(1.1.193-200). Indeed, it takes time and courage to express ones own feelings in front of others. Plus, it is even harder to express the feelings about someone that his/her best friend loves, while they do not. As in this play, even Demetrius is Helena's beloved, Hermia still expresses all her feeling to Helena,
The temperaments of both Jalil and Mr. Bennet, though considered good-natured, are extremely neglectful to their daughters and this impacts value system the protagonists have, with Elizabeth valuing independence and rational thought, and with Mariam 2. Though vastly different in subject matter and setting, both A Thousand Splendid Suns and Pride and Prejudice have similarities in the tone towards their respective conclusions. Jane Austen finishes
Blanche is fearful of the light because of her traumatic past that she has faced. Her fear of being revealed in the light shows her true nature, manipulative, delusional and malevolent. Tennessee Williams uses the motif of light and dark to explore and delve into the characters of Blanche Dubois, Stanley Kowalski, and Mitchell. The two opposing forces in a streetcar named desire are Light and Darkness. To show this Tennessee Williams brilliantly disguises multiple words with double meanings.
Explore the relationships/love presented in A1S1: In act one scene one, which is the opening of the play, Shakespeare firstly presented Lysander and Hermia as forbidden lovers. Hermia was just told that if she disobeys her father’s orders to marry Demetrius she can get killed and Hermia answers Lysander’s question: “Belike for want of rain, which I could well Beteem them from the tempest of my eyes.” the metaphor “rain” suggests her tears are like rain, she is crying so hard that her tears flowed like rain; this means that she is very melancholy that she couldn’t marry the love of her life, Lysander. Additionally it might also be shocking and weird for the audience back in the Elizabethan era, because they were living in a Patriarchal society, and that if you don’t obey your father you can die; because Hermia isn’t like the other women characters
Jane constantly chooses to disbelieve that Miss. Bingley is trying to separate between her and Mr. Bingley. One example of Janes’ simplicity and falsehood in trusting her emotions is Miss. Bingley’s clear indications that Mr. Bingley should marry Ms. Darcy that are overlooked by Jane,“ My brother admires her greatly already; he will have frequent opportunity now of seeing her on the most intimate footing; her relations all wish the connection as much as his own; and a sister 's partiality is not misleading me, I think, when I call Charles most capable of engaging any woman 's heart.” (chap 21). In this quote, the reader can clearly observe Miss.
Unlike Adeline, both Mrs Mowbray and Glenmurray are aware that Adeline’s controversial views would be misinterpreted by society as a cover for her moral “frailty” (AM 170). The libertine rake, first presented by Sir Patrick and then a series of gentlemen who proposition Adeline in the text, consider her to be of easy virtue because she lives with Glenmurray without the protection of “an idle ceremony” (AM 462). What is progressive about Opie’s treatment of marriage is that even with Adeline’s change of heart towards the end of the novel, the primary positive aspect of marriage is its protection against social ostracism and insult. Marriage is not treated as a romantic union of souls because firstly that honour is given to Glenmurray and Adeline’s socially unsanctioned union and secondly, many bad marriages are shown in this novel, which is again a recurring theme in Jacobin novels. However, what Opie does endorse is the utility of marriage because it functions as a protection for female reputation, as a space within which both sexes are given more sexual liberty in the contemporary period (For example, Mr. Berrendale’s bigamy and the promiscuous married cousins of Glenmurray (AM 789, 510 )) and most importantly, it provides protection for children who are saved from the caprices of their parents’ affections, assured social status as well as a proper education.
Perrault’s version of Cinderella’s ending is happier and includes forgiveness. Although the step sisters were cruel and treated Cinderella horribly she forgave them in the end and even found good husbands for them, and they all lived happily ever after. You can see from this that this story is intended to teach a moral lesson of forgiveness and kindness like I explained above. In Perrault’s version you can be terrible and unpleasant but you will be forgiven because that’s part of life. The Grimm brothers however have a different point of view on that matter.
It shows Pen that true love between friends is being able to overcome adversities, and come out stronger than ever. Lastly, true love to Pen is one that holds no restrictions or boundaries. Pen has grown up in a household very disapproving of her her sexuality and looks. Her parents have tried to confine and punish their daughter into a very tiny box. Blake, her crush and later girlfriend, shows Pen a whole new world.
There was irony using superstition imagery throughout on Mrs Johnstone as she believed the lie that Mrs Lyons told her that “if either twin learns that he was one of a pair, they shall both immediately die”. Yet she realised that she had made a terrible mistake by going against her instincts soon after. Therefore, by the narrator using superstition imagery, it’s reminding her of her foolishness and hence her most costly mistake. Thus the audience know that she is haunted by her past constantly. It sufficed to say that most of the consequences and most of the happenings in the play can be traced back to superstition.
