I never thought you but a good man, John - only somewhat bewildered” (55). This quote reveals, Elizabeth’s genuine understanding and faithfulness in her husband. She believes that John carries the burden of his own guilt, which is a lucid indication that he has a sense of morality. John feels this guilt, as he recognizes and takes responsibility for the sin he commits, against his wife. Additionally, due to John’s guilty conscience, he also realizes the value and tenderness that his wife brings him.
She works so diligently and is so kind to others that people begin to reinterpret the scarlet letter. They note that Hester is very capable, and that there is clearly goodness in her – the kind of goodness that always protects and helps people in difficult times: “The letter was the symbol of her calling. Such helpfulness was found in her, —so much power to do, and power to sympathize, —that many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said that it meant Able; so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman 's strength” (Hawthorne 242). Hester believes herself capable of meeting the challenges that confront her.
A Bleak World’s Best Citizen: Rewrite #1 Mark Van Doren’s essay “Hester Prynne” expresses Van Doren’s warm admiration for Hester Prynne’s character in The Scarlet Letter. In Van Doren’s essay, the author elevates Hester Prynne, using his analysis to illustrate his belief in her morality, despite her harsh circumstances. He explores the reasons behind Hester’s strength throughout the novel, and in relation to other characters such as Dimmesdale and Chillingsworth. Van Doren effectively builds his argument by employing historical allusion, repetition, and emotional diction in his case for Hester Prynne. Van Doren incorporates historical allusion into his argument praising Hester Prynne in order to compare her worth to that of a literary and historical hero.
Now that his adultery with Abigail has been revealed to Mary Warren, Proctor appears somewhat relieved. John is less hesitant to confess his sin to the court and expects that by disclosing his mistake, he and his wife will be able to clear their name. Proctor is truly committed to his wife and the threat to her life is much greater than his reputation. John Proctor’s relationship with his wife reveals his morality and how much he values his reputation. Act Three is where we become more aware of the court’s participation in Proctor’s decisions and the severity of its ruling.
Collins. Elizabeth took an opportunity of thanking her. 'It keeps him in good humour,' said she, 'and I am more obliged to you than I can express.' Charlotte assured her friend of her satisfaction in being useful, and that it amply repaid her for the little sacrifice of her time. This was very amiable, but Charlotte's kindness extended farther than Elizabeth had any conception of; its object was nothing else than to secure her from any return of Mr. Collins's addresses, by engaging them towards herself.
The two characters show heroism in unrespecting ways. Norman and Odysseus are heroic because they did things that normal people would not do. These books are connected because Norman and Odysseus did something they didn’t have to do but wanted to do. Heroism can be showed by the people you least expect to show it. Also helping others can go a long way.
The fact that the paterfamilias was willing to initiate divorce demonstrates that the pater cared about his daughters to some extent, thus his daughters were thankful and grateful to him. This element would certainly hurt the central argument, as it shows that the pater had feelings toward his children and was not using them only for monetary purposes (dowry). This information also proves that children loved their father and definitely respected
In the show, you can tell that they are in love from many different aspects. Pam always talks about how kids usually assume that their parents are soulmates, and then she would say that her kids would be right about that. This relates to theology of the body because it shows how Pam and Jim are committed to each other, like all couples should be. Another way that I can tell that they love each other is that their love is rooted in their friendship. A lot of couples say that they are "in love with their best friend", but Jim and Pam show their love by laughing together, confiding in each other, enjoying each other 's company, and they genuinely want the other person to be happy.
In conclusion, Love Actually expresses how familial love is forgiving, sacrificing, and compassionate, making it the greatest kind of love. The bond between Karen and her children grants forgiveness to Harry, keeping their family intact. Sarah’s sacrifice of her own happiness is because of her priority to her brother, Michael. Also, Daniel’s treatment to Sam as his own son were due to his compassionate love towards him. I believe that Curtis found love to be important because just like what one of his characters said, he believes that “Love actually is all around.” Even though aspects of love could be synonymous to how strong, sweet, or bitter coffee blends are, one might find their day incomplete without a cup of coffee.
One of the central theme of the novel is love and friendship. It was Patty’s first experience of feeling loved. The reason for her falling for Anton was simply that he treated her nicely. They were both attracted to each other and formed a bond quickly. Patty also learned the truth of the adage that love is selfless; even though coming outside would put Anton at risk of being discovered, he came to attempt to rescue Patty from her father 's terrible beating, which was an act that made Ruth realize how genuine his feelings for Patty were and seemed to surprise Anton himself as he had not realized he could love another person enough to endanger himself for them
