Men should stop degrading women as liars because men and women are equally capable of lying or at least, hiding who they truly are while they woo women. Consequently, if the marriage fails, husbands should stop blaming their wives for being the cause, since the stability of their relationship depends on both, especially their virtues as spouses. The real scoundrel is the husband who holds his wife responsible for their failed marriage when he may be the most deceiving person in the marriage if he keeps mistresses on the side. Men, not women, are the greatest deceivers, if they lie to women before and after marrying
Cyntoia was born to an alcoholic mother with records of multiple psychiatric disorders; quoting from Brown’s mother, “Bipolar, personality disorder, suicidal, manic depressive, which is an unguarded condition. At times I’ve had homicidal thoughts for people that have hurt me. I’ve been raped, and I always wanted to do things to them for hurting me.” Furthermore, to add even more to the trauma, Cyntoia, her mother and grandmother were all raped over the course of three generations. Cyntoia’s mother also was unable to take care of the girl, as she has a history of intergenerational abuse; She had also testified to heavy drinking, about a fifth of whiskey per day, while pregnant with the girl; mother’s alcoholism had resulted in Cyntoia being born with Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, which has slowed her brain development and had lowered her IQ. Brown’s mother began using crack cocaine when the girl was eight months; furthermore, by the time she was 2 years old, Cyntoia was given up for adoption.
This is another kind of racism between man and woman, she does not have the right to dream, to love, to learn, there is always someone that thinks for her and tells her what she should and should not do. She is oppressed, she is angry because she is not free. When Atticus faced her with this truth and respects her needs of having a better life for herself in the trial scene, she thought he is making fun of her and refused to answer his question, this scene unveil Mayella’s anger, actually by saying that anger has two types positive anger and negative anger, this one can be considered as a negative one. The Ewells know that they were the poorest in the novel, the only thing that gives them value is they are white; they use this to discriminate themselves. Bob Ewell, is Mayella’s father, the villain of the novel and most figures that struts hatred to the African Americans.
Religion also pressures women into obeying men, the Church considers any form of disobedience as a crime. Education, in this era, is a privilege that is only available for the wealthy. Shakespeare introduces three female characters to demonstrate the different experiences of a noble, a commoner, and a prostitute. The role of women in Othello serves to shine a light on the stereotypes that label the women of the sixteenth-century, to emphasize the importance of status in the marriage between man and woman, and to reveal the submission of women towards other men. Women in the era of the Renaissance were often restricted and accused of succumbing to their “stereotypical nature.” In the book “Yael Manes,” one can read that “man viewed woman as a lower human species incapable of thinking for herself and hardly adept at making sound decisions” (DiMaria).
This suggest the theme of “The Yellow Wallpaper” is mental instability due to being confined and repressed by her loved ones. Jane was never allowed to express herself later leading to the deterioration of her mind. “I verily believe she thinks it is writing which made me sick”(Gilman 236). The housekeeper was one of the people who tried to stop Jane from writing. This quote shows how she was being repressed by the housekeeper.
One of the meanings is that ‘jealousy’ is a ‘state of mind that arises from suspicion, or the knowledge of rivalry.’ This definition pertains to Iago because he strongly believes that Othello is sleeping with his wife, hence why he wants to treat Othello as an enemy. Although, Othello did not have sex with Emilia, Iago’s wife, Iago still twists reality to make it his own. Additionally, another definition of ‘jealousy’ is that it is ‘vigilance in guarding a possession from loss or damage.’ This definition relates to Othello more than Iago because, Othello is protecting Desdemona from Cassio as he falls for Iago’s trap in believing that an affair is happening behind his back. A sense of jealousy and betrayal arouses in him as he realizes that his lover, his possession has “fallen” for someone else … when that is not the
The theme of The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald is that the upper class tend to participate in actions that are commonly seen as dishonest, unfaithful, or sketchy. Characters like Nick, Gatsby, Tom and George have twisted views on their own reality due to unfaithfulness and dishonesty. Nick was constantly lied to in the story, for example, Gatsby lied to him about where he got his money. Lies, similar to the one above, gave Nick some twisted views on the reality of his friendship. Gatsby had a twisted view on love due to Daisy marrying Tom right after he left for the war, rather than waiting for him.
Conclusion My dissertation is based on the topic, the diseased mind of women in the works of women novelists like Sylvia Plath and Toni Morrison where I have tried to analyze their novels The Bell Jar (1963) and The Bluest Eye (1970) through a psychological lens. It is very important to look at the works psychologically because though much work has been done in this area yet I felt the need to explore a few more aspects of the psychological field. Women have always been considered the ‘Other’ or the ‘second sex’. They are not given an adequate platform to express their ideas and views and even their urge for creative writing is put on reins. As such she suffers from frustration and not finding any source to give an outlet to the feelings,
Instead of the conflict of the story being between a husband and wife, the conflict is between a mother and a daughter. In the beginning of the story, we can see the obvious conflict between the two. The mother is what one might consider to be strict or abusive or maybe even just tough love. Many times, throughout the story, the mother is said to have hit or choked her daughter. Because of this, the daughter has turned into a disobedient girl and will do anything to go against the wishes of her mother.
Stereotypically, if not saint, the woman must be deceitful, manipulative, dangerous for men and it is possible to interpret the Wife of Bath in this way. However some may say that she is a feminist heroine, expressing her feelings and desires openly, rebelling against the domination of men. This interpretation has some evidences, for example, she evokes arguments with her last husband over a book Valerie and Theofraste which contains a stories about the most untruthful wives in history. Frustrated Alisoun wants to destroy the book, she provokes Jankyn and in a result of the fight, she loses hearing in one ear. Nevertheless, her behaviour cause laugh rather than admiration for her attitude to life and marriage.
