In Their Eyes Were Watching God, Janie’s faults made her dependent emotionally towards men, but independent when finding her own happy ending throughout the book. From The Odyssey, Calypso desperately tried to find love and make Odysseus stay, but her flaws of attachment and having a higher level of authority over Odysseus in their relationship kept her from achieving real love with someone. Although Janie and Calypso are opposites when it comes to love, they do have similarities. Their relationships always ended the same way, with Janie leaving her husbands and Calypso being deserted by her lovers. They both tried to to find love, with some difficulties for each women individually.
As I walked into the room, I saw Mrs Hunt role played as Lorna. She rocked back and forth unconsciously as she sat down with low levels, this showed she was overpowered. Her body language and facial expressions represented her instability. She had a closed body language, this is shown as she closed her arms and kept changing her face this really showed she was mental for example when she used a sad face and converted to a happy face and started to historically laugh this showed that was really mental. The fact that she was centered in a circle with close proxemics portrayed she was been trapped in society and her past.
The suffering may be moral or physical; and in my opinion it is just as absurd to call a man a coward who destroys himself, as to call a man a coward who dies of a malignant fever. "( Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1774) The meaning is moral pain is same as physical pain, and when someone suffers a lot of moral pain, he can not live too. Except love, Werther is pessimistic when he faces other problems. He signs: “That the life of man is but a dream, many a man has surmised heretofore; and I, too, am everywhere pursued by this feeling. When I consider the narrow limits within which our active and inquiring faculties are confined; when I see how all our energies are wasted in providing for mere necessities, which again have no further end than to prolong a wretched existence.”( Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1774) When he does not meet Charlotte, he always writes pessimistic things in the letter.
As a child Emily was cut off from socializing with most of the town. Her father had kept her very sheltered. After her father dies she is left all alone. For three days she refuses to acknowledge his death, until the towns man makes
The last lines of the poem : “Woe be to them / that for a loved one must wait in longing” (52-53) sum up what I think is the other piece of the essence of the lament. Grief and misery were the consequences of breaking the vow of love: “often we vowed / that but death alone would part us two / naught else. But this turned round now…” (21-23) We see that it wasn’t death who tore them apart, but rather the husband’s family. Moreover, I think that love is presented as a fickle yet bizarre thing. In the husband’s case, it wasn’t enough to trust his wife instead of his kinsmen’s suspicions, but we can assume that in some level he still loves her: “He remember too often / a happier dwelling.” (52) While with the wife, even though he banished her, hasn’t stopped loving him for she frequently repeats that she “is all longing”

In the novel, Harper writes that the windows and doors at the Radleys house are always closed. The Radleys are never seen out and about in the town, they even do church at their house. Another reason I believe this is because the kids are scared of them. Since they live in a small town, rumors spread quick. Maycombs citizens have heard that when he was 33, Boo stabbed his father in the leg with a

None of the three animals move, wait as a matter of fact, I think they are stuffed! The old landlady doesn’t seem to be guilty, but I believe she is faking it.
In Bradstreet’s “The Spirit and the Flesh” the poem’s purpose was to show how the Puritans struggled daily with doing the right thing, but being a victim of sin, they struggled with being perfect in an imperfect world. Bradstreet did a great job of portraying this battle in “The Flesh and the Spirit” by having twin sisters argue about what is right and what is wrong. For example, " 'Sister, ' quoth Flesh, 'what liv 'st thou on nothing but Meditation? Doth Contemplation feed thee so regardless to let earth go" (p.222)? Flesh unlike Spirit believed that it is earthy pursuits of wealth and pleasure that are more satisfying than the spiritual pursuits of meditation and contemplation.
This is actually the plight of Baram Alkali’s case in Personal Angle. According to her, a woman may react by self-pity and tears followed by a hardness to love as is Zaria’s reaction, sentimental, passive almost bordering on martyrdom. A wife may immerse herself in the hurt and pain of unrequited and neglected love leading to psychosis as is the case with Zaria. She demonstrates her guts and feminine will power to make a break of it and claim back her name and identity. Even after her separation from her husband, Alhaji Teller lusts hopelessly after her but she refuses to give in preferring to maintain her dignity.
