In her novel, Stowe uses dialogue to maintain that family is only a motivator of action when there is a possibility of enslavement to criticize how slavery leads to the lost of family values. Stowe uses Eliza’s dialogue to illustrate the innate motivation she is hit with after receiving news that her son, Harry, is going to be sold to Mr.Haley. When Eliza stops off at Uncle Tom’s cabin, she says, “I’m a wicked girl to leave her so, but then, I can’t help it. She said, herself, one soul was worth more than the world; and this boy has a soul [...] It must be right, but if it ain’t right, the Lord forgive me, for I can’t help doing it!” (43) Even though Eliza is technically a slave owned by the Shelbys, their kind treatment towards her is reminiscent of

Scott Fitzgerald portrays love as essentially impracticable fancy. When Daisy’s her daughter was born, her husband Tom was nowhere to be found. The nurses handed her baby to her and she said, “ I hope she’ll be a fool—that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” Daisy just like every women back then would just ignore the signs of cheating because they couldn’t do anything about it because they were defined by their husbands. Being a fool means her daughter realize that her husband is cheating. That girls should be in a stupid bliss so it wouldn’t affect them because they wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.
After everyone ran away from Bottom, he started singing. His singing woke up Titania, causing her to see him when she woke. Since the magic flower juice has the power to make you fall in love with whoever you first see, Titania fell in love with Bottom. Titania _______ “Come sit thee down upon this flowery bed while I thy amiable cheeks do coy, and stick musk roses in thy sleek, smooth head, and kiss thy fair large ears, my gentle joy” (Shakespeare 4.1.1-4).

In “Donkeyskin,” Charles Perrault tells the story of a princess whose mother passed away wishing the king to only marry someone who is smarter and more beautiful than she is. The king wish to marry his own daughter so she ran away with the lavish gowns and donkey skin he had given her. In Jack Zipes “Breaking The Disney Spell,” he argues that Disney appropriates the fairy tales and injects his “all-American” morals and values into them. By putting his idealistic vision into films for everyone, Zipe claims that Disney insults the historical integrity of the folklore tradition, deceiving audiences with an illusion of happy fairy tales. Like Zipes, who argues that fairy tales validates the social norms and power structures, Charles Perrault’s Donkeyskin shows that the value of women is their beauty and for them wait for the male to make the first move.
The theme of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is love should not be sought, it should be found. In the beginning of the play, Hermia and Lysander decide to run away in order to not be separated from an arranged marriage: “Emptying our blossom of their counsel [sweet,] There my Lysander and myself shall meet” (1.1.219-222).

He ain’t a nice fella” (89). Previously, we learned that she impulsively marries Curley - after knowing him for just one night- to spite her mother. In other words, Curley’s wife is responsible for her own isolation because she chose to marry a man she didn’t even like. Additionally while talking to Lennie she exclaims: “Aw, nuts! What kind of harm am I doin’ to you?

So that they may still be accepted by the people around
So I married Curley (Steinbeck 88).” She thought her mom had stole the letter she was waiting for from an agent who could get her into her career; she assumed her mom stole it because she thought her mom would have wanted her daughter to do what “normal” women do. Also, she is not considered a “normal” wife; “normal” for that time meant she was supposed to stay inside and do chores and cook. Instead, she goes around, talks to the men working and hides from her husband. Curley’s wife is lonely because no one talks to her to prevent trouble. George said to Lennie, “well, you keep away from her, ‘cause she’s a rat trap if I’ve ever seen one (Steinbeck 32).” Undoubtedly, the two characters Lennie and Curley’s are very contrasting characters; nonetheless they both share the feeling of being different and alone.
