How is the separation of lovers and its consequences presented in the extract? This extract of Flora Macdonald Mayors ' novel, 'The rectors daughter ', develops the theme of hedonism being extingished by the misfortune of unrequited love, through the perspective of a middle aged woman of the 1920 's. Mary Jocelyn, the stories narrator, aims to persue the man of her desires, however his absence of affection is prominant in this extract when we discover his devotion to another woman. This extract is significant to the era, as newly upcoming 'flapper girls ' encouraged a future of female independence and open sexuality, but this segment leaves connotations that not all women took this lifestyle by storm, and still remained unsatisfied as a woman when unaccompanied by a husband, as shown through Mary 's characterisation in the text. Throughout the excerpt, the consequences faced by the separation of lovers is evident to leave a negative effect on the person on the receaving end.
(Bradbury 62). This quote shows how, because love is not a trait valued in her society, she does not care if her technology loves her. Millie has not been taught how important love is, so, to her, love is a silly, unnecessary thing. In the time period of Fahrenheit 451, people emphasize the importance of owning the newest and best technology. They emphasize the importance of having fun, enjoying life, and not thinking too hard about anything.
Despite being the only female on a ranch full of foul-mouthed men, Curley 's wife exploits both her sexuality and her status to demonstrate power throughout the novel. For instance, when first meeting Curley’s wife she attempts to enhance her body for the new men: “She put her hands behind her back and leaned against the door frame so that her body was thrown forward” (31). From Curley’s wife’s actions we learn that since the beginning she finds it necessary to flaunt her body, instead of showing her real personality. Furthermore, she is using her physical attraction to portray an appearance that is automatically seducing in hopes of placing herself above the newly arriving men. After Crooks tells Curley’s wife to get out of the barn, she erupts
26). Wollstonecraft burns that assumption that this desire is not innate because women should not have to be encouraged to complete a natural ability, like eating food or sleeping. She then continues her argument for an equal education system and how to form a lasting relationship with a significant other during her contemporary epoch by stating “The most holy band of society is friendship. It has been well said, by a shrewd satirist, ‘that rare as true love is, true friendship is still rarer,’” (Wollstonecraft, pg. 20).
In addition to unrealistic standards, Orenstein is alarmed by the growing popularity of princesses because she views them as “retrograde role models” (329). Therefore, she thinks princesses teach false lessons on morals, speculating less attractive girls will be bullied. Although Orenstein takes a second wave feminist approach, Poniewozik has a third wave feminism viewpoint, which states women can perform female and male tasks. Poniewozik describes various new princess movies that have a third wave feminism approach, for example in The Prince & Me, Paige chooses her career of becoming a doctor over the prince (324). However, in the sequel, she marries the prince and continues working as a doctor.
One of the most dramatic marriages ever read about was Macbeth and Lady Macbeth’s. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth’s relationship caused many chaotic outcomes, but in the end it proved to be fatal. In the beginning of Macbeth, the readers are already aware of the fascinating relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Lady Macbeth received a letter from her husband about the witches’ prophecies. He wrote, “This have I thought good to to deliver thee, my dearest partner of greatness.”( Macbeth, Act 1, Scene 5, Lines 9-10) Macbeth knows that his wife will be in love with the thought of being queen.
As previously stated, Stella is obviously the voice of reason in Rear Window, and urges Jeffries to marry Lisa. She tells him that, "when two people love each other, they come together - WHAM - like two taxis on Broadway". Hitchcock likely thought that as possibly the most sensible character in the film, Stella's attitude to class should be just as sensible. Jeffries' initial reluctance to marry Lisa because he can't see her being adventurous and accompanying him on his work trips abroad is shown to be invalid and shortsighted, which indicates that Hitchcock thought of such attitudes as baseless. Lisa proves on multiple occasions that she can be daring and get things done, all while wearing the expensive dresses she likes.
For example, when Jean is talking to Dean after Dean threatens to reveal her plan, Jean says that she is “the daughter” of “Lady Howard” and if she “chooses” then she can be the “wife of Mr. Coventry”(48). This shows an example of Jean revealing herself to another person, but she is doing to intimidate Dean. This also shows that she is proud of manipulating Gerald and is bragging to Dean that she did, which is lifting her mask because not many others knew of it. In addition, when Jean’s letters are being read by the Coventry family her motivations of “[bewitching] Monsieur” who is Gerald, “by playing nurse” that were kept secret are revealed(65). Her motivations show that her secrecy and acting were used to manipulate Gerald for her plan.

She also thought she wasn’t beautiful. This was the reason she change her name from Joy, her birth name, to Hulga, a name she thought suited her bested. It can be said her understanding of love stem from Mrs. Freeman stories about her girls, Glynese’s and Caramae’s love life. So it was so easy for her to fall for the first guy who showed her attention ever. Manley told her things she never heard before like she was beautiful and he love her.
Candy also says that he “seen her give Carlson the eye” and “give Slim the eye” this gives the impression that she really is promiscuous and flirtatious. Steinbeck is often criticized as he wants the reader to feel sympathetic towards female characters in his books but yet he always gives them the role of a whore or a housewife. Steinbeck does this to show what society viewed women as and he exaggerates
“Legend holds that seesaws became popular with girls because on the upswing they were able to catch a glimpse of the world beyond their cloistered walls” (Brennert 17).
