On the other hand, Katniss is suspicious of his behavior, and believes he is just pretending to be nice, but she realizes that he is just being himself. She states in the book, “Peeta Mellark, on the other hand, has obviously been crying and interestingly enough does not seem to be trying to cover it up. I immediately wonder if this will be his strategy in the Games. To appear weak and frightened, to reassure the other tributes that he is no competition at all, and then come out fighting.” (Collins, 2008, p.49) He is a very caring person because he doesn’t want Katniss to sacrifice herself for him. Instead, he is helpful, and helps her, for example by helping her get away from the enemies.
Observing the love and affection between others only increases the effect his own solitude has on him. He is aware of his otherness and knows that he is “shut out from intercourse” (84) with the people he holds so dear. It can be argued that this is the point where the creature’s humanity is the strongest throughout the course of story. He has a basic understanding of human societies, he speaks and reads their language, shows compassion and, most importantly, seeks their company and friendship. In his knowledge that social belonging is the missing component to his own happiness, he confronts the people he secretly observed only to, once again, be met with fear and anger (94-95).
After being caught off guard by her question, he hastily responds that he was happy with his life, and afterward thinks that the question was meaningless and silly. After he thinks about it, however, he realizes that the question made him notice that he wasn 't happy at all, and that “he wore his happiness like a mask and the girl had run off across the lawn with the mask and there was no way of going to knock on the door and ask for it back” (12). Her question makes him permanently realize that he is unsatisfied with his life because his life is empty and changes his actions and way of thinking forever because of it. After realizing this, he starts to search for enlightenment and stands outside Clarisse’s house, wanting to be accepted by them, even though they are considered an anomaly in their society because Clarisse’s family members interact
She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways. In another quote the grandmother implies that the misfit is a good man by stating, "Yes it's a beautiful day," said the grandmother. "Listen, " she said, "You shouldn't call yourself the misfit because I know you're a good man at heart. I can just look at you and tell" (421). The grandmother doesn't know the misfit from Adam, yet she already gave him a persona that he has to match.
He was designed (most likely literally, if one takes note of several references to genetic engineering) to be the average of his older siblings. Ender wants to do good things, like Valentine – and sometimes he does – but he also constantly finds himself in situations where he must do what Peter would – though sometimes he still chooses not to. Valentine is essentially the one thing Ender loves in the world, and he strongly desires to protect her. Meanwhile, Ender is torn by a burning desire to be nothing like Peter (and a fear that he is entirely like Peter anyway). However, “the ego is not sharply separated from the id” (Freud 10).
The husband gets an advantage and disadvantage to having this idea of the world in his mind. On one hand, when he notices something majorly different, he is quick to adjust or dismiss the problem and make it work for him, which he does do at the end of the story. On the other hand, he is oblivious to small problems, like the slow growing obsession of his wife’s attachment to the bowl. With problems like these, he doesn’t do anything with them until it’s too late and becomes a huge problem, also like the bowl and the wife problem. The author creates a two-way thought process for the husband which has a disadvantage and an advantage to any given
In general, courtly love is meant to be passionate love between two people who are already married to other individuals. However, as seen through the Miller’s tale, courtly love is usually not as ardent as it is made out to be. In his tale, Absalon “[kicks] his heels about and blithely prance / And play some merry tunes upon the fiddle” in an attempt to make women love him (3330-31). However, when he does this for Alison, she “[makes] poor Absalon an ape, / [Makes] all his earnest efforts but a jape” (3389-90). Alison does not fall for Absalon, even though he tries to express his love toward her on multiple occasions.
Daisy is miserable being married to Tom but stays with him anyways cause she is worried what will happen.

Scott Fitzgerald which includes detailed characters, an exploration of universal themes about money and happiness, and the writings of an author with a very interesting life and influence for his writing.
Mr. Bennet’s pride leads him to have prejudice of her even though he loves her. In the novel, Mr. Darcy’s judgement of Elizabeth is starts off the book and they interact based on how he first thought of her. When he went to ball which happened in Longborn where Elizabeth lives, once he met Elizabeth, he starts to judge her, “[Elizabeth] is tolerable, but not hand some enough to tempt me, and I am in no humour at present to give consequence to young ladies who are slighted by other man” (Austen 8). Mr. Darcy does not even know about Elizabeth, but only by her reputation he decides not to talk to her. Jane Austen illustrated through Mr. Darcy’s character, how people judge others based on reputation.
Although this could be argued as a subtle compliment, although throughout the play this slowly progresses. This reaches a climax when he comes home intoxicated which shows that he expressed his true feelings towards Catherine, “He reaches out suddenly, draws her to him, and as she strives to free herself he kisses her on the mouth.” From the stage directions we can see that Catherine strives to be free which can be argued that she is fighting due to unwanted admiration. This scene was extremely uncomfortable for the audience to view due to realization of Eddie being her uncle. Despite many warnings from Beatrice and Alfieri, Eddie’s blindness is shown as he ignores their concerns. This was considered as a huge turning point in the play, as the action moves towards catastrophe, as his relationship with Catherine plunges from happiness to misery and culminates in his unnecessary
