In this version people choose their own destiny by themselves, and the part where Achilles is told by his mother not to join the war is not even mentioned. Achilles death was not a matter of destiny, but of love. He sacrificed himself to save Brisei’s along with all the other servants. So, after all, the movie still found a way to make this element more realistic without mentioning the Gods' will as the cause of everything that
He also saw how girls were rushing to leave the place and were almost getting in their car, yet he did not run after them. Which means that those girls were not his priority. The last argument is that he knew and understood all consequences of his actions: “Sammy, you don't want to do this to your Mom and Dad … It's true, I don't.”, and "You'll feel this for the rest of your life," Lengel says, and I know that's true, too.” Sammy clearly knew how he was going to end, and it means that his actions were not impulsive. The second character is Louise Mallard. She was unhappy in her life because she was oppressed by marriage.

The chapter that stuck out to me most for giving perspective that I lacked prior to reading this book. My favorite quote from chapter being the first, “Mother, I bring sad news: your son was killed facing the enemy.” The mother said, “He is my son.” “Your other son is alive and unhurt,” said the messenger. “He fled from the enemy.” The mother said, “He is not my son.”( chapter-1 pg-1 ). Aside from the very obvious strong female angle, the quote spoke to me on a personal level. The mother denouncing her commitment to her son for his act of Cowardice is a strong lesson.
Why in Hades not?” This was too much for Alexia to bear. Her sister needed help. Gordias couldn’t be allowed to get away with it. She was angry with her sister for not wanting to fight back. She couldn't understand how any woman could resign herself to a life with a man like that.
Through everything with her dad and everyone’s disapproval Desdemona remained positive with all the hardships she went through and kept a good attitude. Another good thing she did was fulfilled her correct roles and duties such as being a good wife, helping others, and being faithful and loyal. At any moment Desdemona could have left Othello because all of the chaos she had to go through, but she didn’t, instead she stuck by his side through thick and thin. An example of this would be one of her final words to Othello “And you have mercy on me too! I never did anything wrong to you in my life.
“I could not believe her story and go on living with Stanley” (Williams, 1947, p. 145). While Blanche accused Stanley on raping her, Stella chose to defend Stanley and send Blanche to the mental institution because she knew that she couldn’t accept the truth of her husband is a rapist. But more importantly, it is because Stella wanted to protect her marriage since admitting her husband is a rapist means that her marriage is going to be over and her son is going to be growing without a father. And there is no one that she can depend on
He questions his mother’s actions as soon as she gets home, he knows that this message involves him receiving the truth from his mother. Oddly enough, his mother explains to him that she treats him this way through her words: “Because, Ed – you remind me of him”, this refers back to his father who promised her to leave this place, yet she is still here and so is her son, who is also the only one still here. Yet, her love as a mother still exists to him except that this time, he can actually notice it, his mother ends the conversation when she says “it takes a lot of love to hate you like this.” During the night of Christmas, after most of the people gathered and celebrated, Ed goes to the cemetery to pay a visit to his late father, showing a connection and the existence of feelings, which in this case is love between the living and the
From the very inauguration of the play Mrs Alving is a very vigilant character that attempts to the indecorous past of Captain Alving from her son Oswald and her maid Regina. Not only is Mrs Alving in repudiation about her deceased husband’s life but she does not have enough courage to confront Pastor Manders, Regina and Oswald about the past events of her trapped husband. She even claims that “nobody should know what sort of man my child's father was.” She is very much in approbation of Oswald as he has just returned from abroad, she is agreeing with him on all terms as she feels culpable for forcing him away, she even claims that “Oswald is right in every word” after a debate that Pastor Manders and Oswald have about irregular marriage. She’s can see that Oswald is not healthy and wants to nurture him, this nurturing side of Mrs Alving is profoundly seen in the first act, Ibsen does this to portray to the audience that Mrs Alving is very protective of Oswald portraying the sense of worth that Mrs Alving needs from Oswald. As the play progresses this lust that Mrs Alving is having for Oswald turns into a dismay for Oswald as she is seeing “the joys of living” that her husband portrayed in her son Oswald.
