However,some may say that Cimorene is not advocate because her parents compelled her to take “proper” lessons for princesses.”Fencing is not a proper behavior for a princess.”(3)People may assert that Cimorene should be the princess the way society wanted her to be.Although some may argue that Cimorene is not justified because she insist to do things the way she likes,but to Cimorene “It is the utmost importance to my life and future happiness.”As a result,Cimorene is justified for being the princess she chooses to be. Overall,Cimorene is justified in her decision because she deserves to choose he man she wants to marry,make her own choices,and be the princess she chooses to be.While some may argue she is not justified for not being the “proper” princess she must be, but if she stayed in Linderwall, she wouldn’t live her own “happily ever after”.Therefore, Princess Cimorene is right to be the princess she

Rosaura’s mom told her that they do not actually care because they are rich. “Get away with you, believing any nonsense you’re told!” Rosaura was deeply offended. She thought it was unfair of her mother to accuse other people of being liars or haters simply because they were rich”(Heker page 1). This shows that her mom knew she was going to get hurt for being the maid’s daughter and tried to avoid that from happening. “Instead she rummaged in her purse.
After Mathilde buys a dress with the money that Mr.Loisel gives to her, she still is not satisfied with what she is given, she wants more.

The reader can imagine her as constantly-shifting in appearance, which adds to the horror of her looks. Both Arthur and Guinevere attempt to convince Ragnelle to hold the wedding privately to preserve both Gawain and Ragnelle’s honor, as other courtiers will no doubt ridicule them for the odd couple they make. Arthur’s knights are meant to be the best in England, with the most beautiful, noble wives. Certainly, Ragnelle is not the bride Gawain would have picked, given a real
Though she strives to be the independent Jazz Age woman, the societal pressure for females to be physically attractive is still too overwhelming for her to attain that goal. This is why she convinces Bernice to bob her hair - not because Marjorie wanted her cousin to resemble a trendy flapper girl - but because Marjorie herself found that hairstyle to be unattractive, and she secretly wanted to prevent Bernice from getting more attention from men than she did. Specifically, Marjorie wanted to prevent her from getting more attention from her crush, Warren, than she did. Right after Bernice’s hair is bobbed at the salon, for instance, Bernice “noticed Marjorie's mouth curved in attenuated mockery”,,” before she turned to Warren and asked him to go with her to get a dress at the cleaners. (Fitzgerald 10).
Montag finds himself surrounded with all sorts of entertainment, yet unsatisfied with his life, showing materialism does not solve any problems. Those who depend on possessions to feel validated also waste their time consumed with vain imaginations. Winston's rebellious girlfriend, Julia, in 1984 longs to dress like a real woman saying, "I'm going to get hold of a real woman's frock from somewhere and wear it instead of these bloody trousers. I'll wear silk stockings and high-heeled shoes! I'm going to be a woman..." (Orwell 2.149).
They both like to spend money, but Nora spends money on useless things, and Mathilde spends money to feel better about herself.

Mathilde learns a lesson in the end, but Nora doesn’t learn
This essay will analyze ‘The Necklace’ and how Maupassant uses the social context, characters and literary devices in the short story to illustrate his misogynistic viewpoints towards women. The protagonist of ‘The Necklace’, Madame Loisel, live a rather steady, ordinary middle-class life in the beginning of the story. However, she views that she is intended for a luxurious life, and, therefore, does not cherish what she has. She takes a step forward to her desires, as she was invited to a ball where all the upper-class woman would be, yet she was unhappy with the fact that she does not even have a stone to put on. With her greed for attention, she asks one of her upper-class friends, Madame Forestier, for a necklace that she could borrow for the ball.
