Jealously, selfishness, and being semi-barbaric can make a women do crazy things. In Frank Stockton’s “The Lady or The Tiger” the princess leads her lover to the door with the tiger because of her jealousy, semi-barbaric roots, and selfishness. The princess could be very jealous when it comes to her lover. This man as told in the story was very handsome and brave that’s what grasped her attention towards him.
Theseus exclaims,“Hippolyta, I wooed thee with thy sword, and won thy love, doing thy injury,” (1.1.16). He claims that he captivated his wife-to-be by fighting for her love and enduring injuries. By doing this, Theseus proves himself worthy enough of Hippolyta’s love which allows him to marry her. Conversely, Oberon’s hostile remarks towards his wife, Titania, further illustrate the difference between the two. Upon seeing his wife, Oberon calls her a,“rash wanton,” which translates to a hasty willful creature (2.1.63).
Hera picked up the bird and swaddled it; then Zeus turned back into his normal form, taking advantage of her surprise raped her. Hera then married him to cover up her shame; their marriage was awful, and they often clashed. The next goddesses i 'm going to be talking about is Aphrodite, she is the goddesses of love, desire and beauty; even though she had natural beauty,
Many things come with 2 sides; good and bad. In the poem, it talks of the bad side where readers of poems want to “torture a confession” out of a poem rather than just enjoying a poem for what it is. The author wants readers to analyze poems positively rather than negatively like they are accustomed to do. This relates to my life in that everyone focuses on the bad things I do rather than looking at the good things I do in life. This poem also reminds me of how the education system works.
Marvell” are both different than the other. However, they do take an opposing side in response to Marvell’s poem. For example, in “His Coy Mistress”, the speaker’s overall attitude is speaking up for herself and telling her lover how she wants to be more than someone to be used for his needs. You can see this as early as lines 1 and 2 where Finch writes, “Sir, I am not a bird of prey:/a Lady does not seize the day.” This comparison as herself, to a “bird of prey” shows how low Marvell ranks a woman compared to himself.
Although slavery and segregation have been abolished and deemed illegal, racism is still a major issue in today’s society. In Claudia Rankines, Citizen: An American Lyric, she explores racism in a unique way. She takes situations that happen on a daily basis, real life tragedies and acts in the media to analyze and bring awareness to the subtle and not so subtle forms of racism. While reading Citizen, people may interpret Rankine’s use of different pronouns as a way to detach herself from the situations so she wouldn’t come across as biased or one sided. However, through repeated use of different pronouns in Citizen, Rankine pulls the focus of the readers making them feel like they can identify with the different situations.
The correlation that I connect with this poem is how feminity can challenge modern relationships. The intellectual realization that Donne’s poem covers is how the women’s perspective can dominate over the male’s perspective when it comes to relationships. In many interpretations of the poem, people have drawn the conclusion that the speaker is trying to woo the female in the poem, however she rejects his advances and the speaker is left with a heartbreak. The interpretation of others and my own still show the female dominance that is being carried over between this male and female
(82). After his conversation with Faber, Montag’s mindset about books dramatically shift. Faber tells Montag to be self-reliant and not always look to other people to do everything for you. Not only is this theme portrayed in Fahrenheit 451, but also in an article for Newsela. Paul Hirschfield wrote, “Racism helps explain why African Americans and Native Americans are particularly vulnerable to police violence.
Baldwin states, “This is explained by the nature of Mrs. Stowe’s subject matter, her laudable determination to flinch from nothing in presenting … and to leave unanswered and unnoticed the only important question: what is was, after all, that moved... people to do such deeds” (“Everybody’s Protest Novel”). Throughout the novel, Stowe writes about many unfortunate events, but does not explicate why the characters are being treated in such a way; it leaves readers asking many questions about why characters feel a certain way. In Chapter 43, George states, “When I think of all she suffered, of my own early sufferings, of the distresses and struggles of my heroic … I have no wish to pass for an American, or to identify myself with them. It is with the oppressed, enslaved African race that I cast in my lot; and, if I wished anything, I would wish myself two shades darker, rather than one lighter” (Stowe 491).
In the poem, “The Ancient Gesture” by Edna St. Vincent Millay use poetic devices to help the reader understand the message that Millay is trying to relay to the readers. In this poem it describes the speaker relating her agonized waiting for her loved one who is away at war to Penelope from The Odyssey by Homer, who also is home waiting for Odysseus to return from Troy. Throughout the piece Millay uses poetic devices such as, repetition and tone to help convey the message that while the women wait for their loved one with agony and while the men are away they are not focused on the women who wait patiently for their loved ones to return.
