Money, power, and success have blinded people into thinking they are in love and it has led to these women being oppressed. Tom and Gatsby in this book are what is called the patriarchy. According to Revise Sociology, the patriarchy is “The systematic domination of women by men in some or all of society’s spheres and institutions.” In Tom and Daisy’s marriage; they are both having an affair, Tom wasn’t at his child’s birth, and he oppresses Daisy physically, maybe by accident, and socially, by not allowing her to go wherever she wants to go. In Tom and Myrtle’s affair; they are both married, yet they have this affair, she is dependent on him because he oppresses her economically and psychologically, and he also oppresses her physically when he broke her nose. In Gatsby and Daisy’s relationship; she is having an affair with him and he psychologically oppressed her with his money and wealth only to get the idea he has of her as his “Golden Girl.” Fitzgerald’s argument is, when love is not the main reason for a relationship it will lead into oppression of women.

In King Lear, Lear is depicted as a very foolish and arrogant man. This is evident when Lear eats up the words of Regan and Goneril, who are lying about how they feel, when he asks his daughters to show who loves him the most. However, when his daughter Cordelia, who is Lear’s favorite daughter, does not play a long with Lear’s games as she believes her actions show her feelings toward her father more then words, Lear quickly dismisses her and decides to only give land to Regan and Cordelia. This clearly shows Lear’s arrogance and foolishness as he falls for the sap of his detached daughters and turns away from the daughter that actually loves him. In a Thousand Acres Larry Cook is depicted as more of a monster instead of a fool.

For example, when Blanche sees the paper boy, she takes out a scarf to try and seduce him, quickly kisses him without waiting for consent, and rushes him on his way without a word from him, just to play with his emotions (pg. 88). Even when something bad happens to Blanche, she copes by making a lie to cover up her emotions. After Blanche was raped and Stella did not believe what had happened, she falsely told her sister “…the rest of [her] time [she] is going to spend on the sea…”(pg.
