Both plays, having been written at the end of the 19th century, offer insight into how this societal pressure creates an environment in which women face a particularly large amount of pressure to find wealthy, suitable husbands rather than ones they truly love. This issue of marriage being classified as business is best summed up in The Importance of Being Earnest when Algy, after having learned Jack intends to propose to Gwendolyn, remarks, “I thought you had come up for pleasure…? I call that business” (Wilde
In the first few sentences, Russel compares the thoughts of migrating in search of open, unused land to “seduction” and “romance”. As we further read on, he continues to use his pointed word choice when listing the not-so ideal lifestyles being “trapped” in one place in “unglamorous” marriages with “dead end” jobs. While these past few choices may not reflect Russel’s ideals, he used them to summarize those of Rushdie. Towards the very end of his essay, Russel clearly states his stance, and thoughts on migration, once again using pleasant words such as “durable”, “care”, as well as appeal to the sense of tradition and family

He was the first child to his father Jedidiah Morse and mother Elizabeth Ann Finley Breese. His religious views were protestant, he was very anti-catholic, and thought slavery was simply fate.

Emma Marriage For Jane Austen, marriage was a permanent affair that conferred financial and social security on a woman. This is due to the fact that women had limited rights such as earning one’s own property and wealth. The significance of matrimony is apparent through her female characters, Emma, Harriet and Miss Bates. Emma aspires to match-make Harriet by marrying her into a higher social position to Mr Elton – “she would detach her from her bad acquaintances, and
Why do people marry for money, and not love? During the 1920s, and to this day it is show as power if you had higher wealth, clothes, and other things the Great Gatsby is an excellent example for this. Daisy as another example she married Tom mainly for the money, but also because she thought she loved him. Myrtle also is an example she has this affair with Tom, because she seeks wealth and power. Tom however, thinks that he loves Myrtle and not Daisy, and uses that to abuse Myrtle by throwing things at her punching her or just beating her up.
Through both passages the use of rhetorical appeals are used differently to persuade each woman to accept the proposal. While the speaker in Jane Austin’s proposal uses logos and lists the logical reasons on why the woman should marry Mr. Collins, the speaker in Charles Dickens’ uses pathos to win over his woman by using emotions and passionate words. The woman hearing the proposal from Austen would probably feel resentment toward the man, the woman hearing Dickens’ would feel a strong attraction towards the man proposing. In Austen’s passage Mr. Collins is giving his marriage proposal almost as if it’s a business agreement than a marriage.
Starting off with Campbell’s first stage “The Call to Adventure”, Orwell, Allende, and Kafka illustrate this stage in their literary works. The call to adventure focuses on the beginning of the hero’s journey. The character receives some form of information which initiates the instinct to act upon what they hear. For example, the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four occurs in a time period of where the state-government and Big Brother become the only things that really matter. The protagonist Winston Smith believes against the ideology of Big Brother but fears to display his honest opinion and considers himself like no other.
- Edward is an economically independent man with a favorable status and influential connections still looking for a profitable match. Jane will be the one in charge to unmask him to the audience: “I saw he was going to marry her [Blanche Ingram] for family, perhaps political reasons, because her rank and connections suited him” (Brontë 205) This manner of conduct converts Mr. Rochester from a hero into a villain, a perpetrator and “his project of
Women are told that they should feel lucky if a man chooses to marry them. We see an example of an arranged marriage in the film when we are introduced to Darshini, who is the first daughter in law and Sita who is the second daughter in law to Dadi. Darshini and Sita had arranged marriages with Dadi 's two sons. The process of Darshini and Sita being arranged into marriage is that both of the women were forced to leave their homes and start their new lives in Dadi’s home. Inside the household, the film shows some of the aspects of the daily lives of the daughter-in -laws.
The effect debt has on people is reflected in them unconsciously, whether it be their literary works, art, or their choices. This is seen in the novel Wuthering Heights by Romantic author, Emily Bronte. However, an author’s feelings of debt can be stated directly towards their audience, as is the case with President Abraham Lincoln’s letter to his step-brother, John D. Johnston. In Bronte’s novel, she directs her work towards an educated audience as she entertains them with the story of Hindley falling into debt through the use of a satirical and serious tone and formal diction, as well as a long descriptive syntax, to express to her readers how she comprehends the topic of debt and show off her expertise on polysyllabic words. However, in President Abraham Lincoln’s letter to John D. Johnston his purpose differs; Lincoln’s intention is to teach his step-brother the importance of working off his debt while simultaneously refusing to lend him more money.
