No matter the strong pull of love though, Meursault escapes its grasps though his lack of empathy and basic human connections. This ideology is shared by those around Meursault: such as how Salamano lost his wife and “He hadn’t been happy with his wife, but he’d pretty much gotten used to her (1.5.44).” Meursault knows that love is only temporary and knows that love means nothing in life and cannot change anything: “That evening Marie came by to see me and asked me if I wanted to marry her. I said it didn’t make any difference to me and that we could if she wanted to (1.5.44).” He does accept that love is something tangible but understands that there is no significance to it, how it has no reason, and is not required for living. So, therefore, why should he care about this emotion if it serves no evolutionary purpose to help us thrive and grow in the universe? Like Meursault, the Universe is unforgiving and ignores feeling to continue the circle of
She knows what she wants, but does not know how to say it because she has never been put in a position to project her voice. Despite knowing her husband’s actions are the problem, she proceeds by saying “we” in which conveys how she has started to share the blame equally, subconsciously following the concept her husband set out in the relationship. Strong communication is a key in order to establish any solid relationship. Both husband and wife should be open on this front, as when one voice mutes the other, the marriage is likely to fall
222) Haimon is using emotional persuading to try to persuade Creon to not kill her because he 's in love with Antigone and wants to marry her so he says if you kill her another one will happen which means that he will dir to because he loves her so much and he is hoping that this makes Creon sad because to a father the thought of his son dying should be very sad and should cause him to do anything to change that but not Creon. Creon would rather be a better king than father. Once again Haimon uses an emotional appeal to persuade Creon, Haimon says “Not here, no; she will not die here, king. And you will never see my face again. Go on raving as long as you’ve a friend to endure you.” Sophocles et al.
It was not looked down upon for him to rescind his love so quickly from a woman who he originally believed to be “the sweetest lady that ever [Claudio] looked on” and ultimately decide she is no longer worthy of his love (1:1:183-184). Claudio can easily rid his mind and heart of a woman who is unloyal in order to find himself a new, more worthy companion. This only works, however, because he is a male. If the same had happened to Hero, she would have been expected, as a result of the gender norms created by society, to remain quiet about the affair and continue with the marriage. Not only does gender impact the actions of and reactions to characters in the play, but socioeconomic status does as well.
Matthew, I agree with you that Coach McElwain’s press conference was effective because he was upfront about Will’s making a mistake, but most importantly in the press conference, Coach McElwain made it known that he along with the team would continue to support Will. In addition, I also agree with you about the Penn State crisis. Consequently, a crisis of that magnitude is unlikely to recover from. I believe that no matter how much the school and the Athletic department do to try to distance itself from the crisis that it will always be connected to the school. Great Post!
Egeus desires that Hermia wed Demetrius instead of Lysander, for he believes Demetrius high standing will benefit his daughter. With the support of his king, Egeus will be able to. Though he has no regard or sympathy for breaking apart Hermia and Lysander. Theseus tries to persuade Hermia to refrain from going against her Father 's wishes, for if she chooses to do so she will be forced into a life of a nun or killed for her actions. “Either to die the death or to abjure Forever the society of men.
Her personal desires and feelings are also secondary to her husband’s. She does not wish to invite Ellie Henderson to her party because she is not fond of her, but since Richard “did not see the reasons against asking Ellie Henderson”, Mrs Dalloway had to do so “as he wished it” (Woolf, p. 102). This is a pertinent example of how Mrs Dalloway is reduced to a mere vessel for her husband’s desires; she is not allowed to act on her own terms. Likewise, Zijun finds herself trapped in an unhappy relationship with Juansheng because her reputation has been irrevocably tainted by the illicit nature of their relationship. Juansheng is aware that their separation would harm Zijun because she would be thrust into “an atmosphere of
They probably would have had a somewhat normal relationship if it wasn't for their parents. Juliet’s father, Lord Capulet, had his opinions and ideas about what Juliet’s future was going to look like. He came to Juliet demanding that she marry Paris because he thought it would make her happy after losing Tybalt. But to his dismay, she refused and said “Not proud you have, but thankful that you have/ Proud can I never be of what I hate/ But thankful even for hate that is mean love/” (3.5.151-153). Juliet explains to her father that she’ll never marry Paris, this is because she’s loyal to Romeo and staying married to Romeo is what her heart desires.
There were rumors about Larry and his playboy nature, but Antonia choose to see the good in him and was even prepared to be married to a man who did not care as deeply for her as she believed. “The trouble with me was, Jim, I never could believe harm of anybody I loved” (5.1.189). Antonia says this to Jim as they are looking back on their lives as adolescents which proves how she learned from her previous experiences not to instantly be so trusting of everybody she meets. In a more positive sense, Antonia’s optimism enabled her to be accepting of what she had, and never wish for more. Unlike her acquisitive mother, Antonia was always content with her life on the farm and never felt it necessary to beg and want what other people have.
One fig was a husband and a happy home and children and another was fig was a poet and another was a brilliant professor” (). By describing the different figs, Plath shows how Esther thought about all the different choices. She knew she didn’t want to get married but the society pushed her to get married to someone like Buddy. That is why when Buddy proposed in chapter eight, and Esther said “‘I’m never going to get married…No. My mind is made up’” (), Buddy’s expression didn’t change because he knew she would have to follow the gender roles.
She was both over protecting of Auggie and tired of having to protect him. Palacio did a wonderful job creating Via. The Author makes it very easy to empathize with Via in “Wonder.” Palacio accomplishes this by adding choiceful dialect such as ‘“Don 't forget to come back," I said as she left.’ ‘"I promise. "’ ‘But she didn 't come back that night. Dad did.
