Therefore, Mraz like Shakespeare is fully aware that their lovers are not considered attractive by society's standards even though they appreciate them. In addition, Mraz states in line 3 "Just an ordinary humble girl". Thereby acknowledging that the girl
COMPARE AND CONTRAST ON THE WAY OF RECOVERY Teenage protagonists have rough and different world and it’s hard to understand them completely. “Catcher in The Rye” and “The Perks of Being Wallflower” novels give a huge place about female relationships of Holden and Charlie. Even though they have different world, they have similar attitudes to their sisters, to their dates who they don’t really like and to their female friends that helped them to overcome their traumas.
The differences between the play and the film, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, serve at different time to strengthen and weaken the allusion of Helena and Hermia to the mythological Greek characters their names were inspired by. As sometimes described in the play and depicted in the film, the physical appearance of the women connects and separates them from their namesakes, Hermes and Helen of Troy. Through nearly half of the play, Helena is discarded as being unwanted and even refers to herself as being “as ugly as a bear” while her namesake refers differently (MSND II, ii, 100). Being named after Helen of Troy, Helena is expected to be the most beautiful woman to have walked the earth and in the movie is depicted as so, with classically beautiful features and voluminous blonde hair, yet the play serves as a contradiction (Hoffman).
The argument is that the author attempts to describe her as a pure and innocent female to ensure that the reader understands the perspective of Jay, but particular aspects of her true intentions are revealed when the story progresses. That in reality she is an opposite during the final chapters, and it was nearly impossible to predict because of her ability to manipulate others. Daisy can be seen as a sympathy seeker, shallow, and selfish. Some individuals may feel sympathy toward Daisy because of the way she is described and her actions in the book. The author tries to ensure that her motives are not clear and provides subliminal hints throughout the whole novel.
[with] wondrous virtues” does not seem to be happy. Infact she is "aweary" and melancholic, making the audience curious as to why. In the following scene the audience’s curiosity of Portia’s misery is quenched. The conversation between Nerissa and Portia gives the first glimpse of her power, or the lack of it.
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
Helena arrives and doesn’t like the fact that Demetrius has eyes for Hermia, even though she loves Demetrius more than Hermia could. Helena, in a soliloquy, indicates that she will tell Demetrius about Hermia's plans and in turn might make him start to love her again. The Athenian workmen gather and Peter Quince hands out several parts
After spending years married to Tom, she has become used to looking into the material items. When reunited with Gatsby she only points her attention on what he has materialistically: “They’re such beautiful shirts … it makes me sad because I’ve never seen such-such beautiful shirts before” (pg 92). The reason Daisy is so upset is because she acknowledges that she could have had multiple materialistic gains whist being married to Gatsby in a love-filled relationship. When she sees what she could have had her mirage of a perfect life begins to crumble. But this leads to her in the end resorting to her false outward appearance since it is easier for her to fall back into her lie that confront her own truth, that she is unhappy presently.
After comparing both texts, “The Necklace” is a better short story than “The Journey to Galway” because of the strong characterization present in the story. Page 184 of the novel describes, Madame Loisel, the protagonist, as “One of those pretty, charming, young ladies, born, as if through an error of destiny… no hopes…” This quote shows that Madame Loisel is beautiful and a charming lady. Her beauty is what makes her think so highly of herself. She believes that she deserves more than what she has in her middle-class life which she describes as hopeless.
The first time she meets Viola she is strongly attracted to her, charmed by her “tongue…face…limbs, actions and spirit.” Olivia is quickly infatuated with Viola, but never shows signs of true love for Viola, such as compassion or concern for the good of her. Olivia simply wants to have Viola and shows a selfish attitude that is not consistent with real love. Olivia is so focused on physical attractiveness that she cannot tell the difference between Viola and her twin brother Sebastian, who looks almost exactly the same. The fact that she mistakes Sebastian for Viola shows that she has not taken much notice of many of Viola’s qualities besides her physical traits.
Helena spends a large portion of her life complaining about the fact that she believes Hermia is much luckier than she is because she is the object of both Lysander and Demetrius’ attention. When Lysander “falls in love” with Helena she does not believe this, she thinks that he is not being honest with her, and is making fun of her, by playing with the feelings she has with Demetrius. The irony in this is that she finally gets what she has wanted, the attention of a man, but she is not able to believe that he is in love with her even though he proclaims his love to her repeatedly. It is as though Helena does not believe she is worthy of the love she has always desired. She may not have wanted to be with Lysander since she has always wanted
I predict that Levi and Cath will begin to accept their differences and be an actual couple. I think this because although they are very different (Cath is considered a “nobody” while Levi is extremely popular), they are alike at the same time, personality
