Such as Don Crane, or the teenage boy whom she suspected of having sexual relations with his girlfriend. Mrs. Strangeworth's intentions are to protect the townspeople from evil. Which turns out to be very ironic, considering how she had done more harm than good because of her letters. Mrs. Strangeworth’s letters only worsened the recipient's current state of life. They made them feel horrible about how they were living their lives.
He had in mind that he was fighting for the king, however he ends up being tempted. The Lord’s lady is the cause of his temptations, and he did a wrong action in receiving the girdle. He should respect the fact that it is the Lord’s wife. Towards the end of the story Gawain seems to forget about his vows as a knight, to the king, and his
She finds herself thinking of him and how much she loved him. Although she recognizes that he was unstable, she cannot push her feelings away and cannot begin to understand why he decided to leave her. She does speak of their differences and how because of them she is “now covered in the colors pull[ed] apart at the seams” (Halsey Web). Their relationship, while in the beginning compelling, ends with the departure of the boy and the devastation of the girl. The boy was unable to make their differences work, and dealing with personal issues as well, decided to walk away.
On the other hand, “The Stolen Party” portrays how social groups are selfish one another. The Whites and Rosaura, known as the protagonists in both stories, desires to change their fate, but were punished because it made their lives worse than it’s normal routine. Mr. White attempted many risky decisions that completely changed him as a character. For example, he was warned by Sergeant Major Morris to
Carrasco is prejudice towards people as he believes they don’t focus on the reality of the situation. Dr. Carrasco: "Our marriage, my dear. There is a certain embarrassment at having a madman in the family. In the eyes of others-” (29). Carrasco is saying that if he marries Antonia, who is Quixote’s niece, he will have a mad man in the family.
However, in this essay, I will argue that Gilman portrays John as an antagonist or “villain” in her story because, through his actions, he is the main reason for his wife 's descent into insanity which proves that he didn’t know what was best for his wife after all. Therefore, John represents the bars of the wallpaper which confines the woman and doesn 't allow her to be free. First, we can observe the descriptions or feelings that the narrator expresses when speaking about John. Although these descriptions or feelings may seem positive at times, they slowly become more negative and judgmental throughout the story as she realizes that John doesn’t
“ Mistakes made by a foolish mind, cruel mistakes that bring on death.” (1406 to 1407.) In this quote, King Creon of Thebes is acknowledging that he has made tragic mistakes, because he wanted to the laws of his state, that he put in place, instead of preserving the safety of his family, which consequently lead to suffering for many. In the play Antigone, by Sophocles, the character Creon makes decisions based on what he feels is right, and refuses to pay attention to other’s advice. His stubbornness and selfishness prove fatal, and as a consequence of his moral deficiency, he kills an innocent woman, and loses his son in the aftermath. In the play Antigone, by Sophocles, Creon’s deadly stubbornness and selfishness in ignoring the pleas and
Jane hated that Mr. Rochester bought pretty jewelleries and dresses for her;” the more he bought me, the more my cheek burned with a sense of annoyance and degradation” (Brontë, 321). One can interpret this as Jane worries that the marriage would lessen her independence and put her at an inferior position. The fact that Mr. Rochester buys her all these things makes Jane feel objectified, and she could not tolerate it. Once again, this signals the feministic opinions that the character of Jane is associated with. Jane and Mr. Rochester does not get married during this section of the book, due to the fact that he is already in a marriage.
One of the times that Cyrano realizes that he is not good enough for Roxane is when Roxane is angered with Christian and explains, “that displeases me/ As much as if you had gone ugly” (102). This reminds Cyrano that his intelligence will never be able to win Roxane over if he is to stay as ugly as he is. Another character that portrays the theme of unrequited love is Valvert, who wishes to marry Roxane. Le Bret gives insight by explaining, Valvert “wishes Roxane to marry him...but she says no”
In some ways, Abigail and Elizabeth could seem as though they were similar. Their character motives was one thing that made them particularly different. Abigail Williams desire for John Proctor and hatred of Elizabeth can be described as shameful. She loved for all of the wrong reasons. When her uncle, Mr. Parris, accused her of committing a crime with John, she would lie and blame it on Elizabeth.
John committed the sin of adultery with Abigail. He seems truly sorry for his error with Abigail. Elizabeth does not forgive him and does not trust him any longer. In my opinion someone in Elizabeth 's position can sometimes truly trust a spouse that cheats. If the person in Elizabeth´s position can tell that the other position is truly sincere and sorry then I think that the person deserves a second chance, but if the person is not sincere, and continues to do it.
Again, John seems to forget that he is the transgressor. His harsh behavior and tone towards Elizabeth almost makes it seem as if he is putting the blame on her, as if she was not suppose to confront him about adultery and just metaphorically be a doormat. He expects women to do as he says and mold to the ideas he wants so his life can be easier. Miller writes this dialogue with John to show how his guilt is causing him to be defensive. Schissel explains, “John 's sense of guilt is intended by Miller to act as salve to any emotional injuries given his wife and his own conscience.
In “The Birthmark”, Aylmer is bothered in seeing a birthmark on his wife Georgiana’s cheek. I believe that Aylmer was truly evil in the way he manipulated Georgiana in thinking he truly cared about her. Aylmer’s ideas of perfection were the most dangerous thing about him and even led him to kill. When Georgiana learned of her husband’s disdain towards her birthmark she was devastated. Slowly, Aylmer manipulated Georgiana into believing that this mark would need to be removed.
