Romeo and Juliet are two star crossed lovers that both pay the ultimate price for love. Mr. Capulet is the power hungry and selfish ruler of the Capulet Family. The highly ranked and socially respected Montague family keeps the Capulets from being the highest ranked family in Verona. The attitude of Mr. Capulet has Juliet, his daughter, scared to tell him anything, much less so about her marriage to Romeo, a Montague. Juliet’s relationship with her dad is slim to none and has Mr. Capulet guessing what she is like and he makes all decisions for her without even knowing what's going on in her life.
The definition of loyalty is faithful adherence to someone or something. Loyalty has been valued in society since the beginning of time, however one thing has changed. The lengths that people go to show their loyalty varies throughout time. In the book, The Odyssey by Homer, civilians were loyal to their family and friends. The extent that they would go to show their loyalty to each other is different than what it is now.
166-167). Complimenting Nausicaa further confirms Odysseus is disloyal to Penelope because by giving her compliments Odysseus is showing he thinks she is this beautiful girl which is ultimately leading her on. In addition, Odysseus does not even think about Penelope in this situation. He completely ignores the fact that his actions could have consequences in the future. In the same way as above, Odysseus continues to show disloyalty to Penelope, Alcinous stated in a longing way, “If only- you could wed my daughter and be my son-in-law and stay right here with us.” (7.
However, He believes that she may leave him and not act loyal towards him. All these are the what creates a barrier in both Othello and Fences ;In Othello Iago understands that insecurity that prevent him from fully interacting with the world. Troy is almost the same, He has an emotional barrier that exist within him that prevent him from fully interacting or placing his trust in this world and The people that lives in it. All this prevent him from forming good relationships at work. Troy cannot trust Rose, even though She is the incarnation of a good wife and she doesn't give any reason to be insecure.
Characters in The Odyssey show incredulous levels of loyalty that may never be possible for people to achieve, but they can still take a lesson in loyalty and trust from the characters. Odysseus trusts the gods to bring him home and Penelope also trusts the gods to bring Odysseus home. Loyalty is something that people strive for. If people follow the examples of most of the characters in The Odyssey then this world will be a more trusting place because loyalty requires trust and trust requires
Lord Capulet was kind and gentle about her in Act II, Scene I but when she had to refuse to marry Paris in Act III, Scene V he couldn't care less about her wellbeing, both physically and emotionally. Juliet was respected by her father to a certain extent as long as she was being constantly weary about what she said and did. She had no say and no one to stand up for her when Capulet claimed he was always morally correct. I felt that behind the fake care of his daughter for his reputation, Capulet did not care for his daughter as a top priority in his life. This could be counteracted by stating that Capulet’s want to be constantly obeyed could've been excused in 14Th century Italy as he was just the modal gentleman of the
While defying society's standards Edna Pontellier proved how different she was from Adèle. Leonce displays his frustration with how his wife, Edna, treats him, “He thought it very discouraging that his wife, who was the sole object of his existence, evinced so little interest in things which concerned him, and valued so little his conversation” (Chopin 6). Encircling the Pontelliers’ marriage was dissatisfaction due to Edna’s rejection of her duties as a mother and wife. Although Adèle has a disconnection with Edna’s personality she still displays friendliness while staying true to her own nature. Adèle is the epitome of what society considers an ideal woman, which helps show how different she is from Edna, “Many of them were delicious in the role; one of them was the embodiment of every womanly grace and charm.
However, his character flaws and the byproduct that are their consequences negate his heroism. Though Odysseus was successful in his journey home and in hand obtaining justice, he allowed for hubris get the best of him, remained disloyal to his wife and was not considerate
Here, we would again see how Claudio does things without thinking at all. He does not realize that getting married to someone he does not even know could be disaster He was not even sure if he loved this girl and he was willing to live with this girl for the rest of his life. All he knew was that she was a copy of Hero and for him that was all that mattered. This just shows that Claudio's love for Hero is so shallow and that his attraction towards Hero is just on the physical level. He is making decisions without considering what he is doing.
On one hand, Lady Macduff is mostly upset with her husband for leaving because she feels he does not love her. She goes on to say how all she wants to do is be a good wife and do all that is expected of her as a woman, but it still gets her nothing. To leave his wife, to leave his babes,/ His mansion and his titles in a place/ From whence himself does fly? He loves us not;/ He wants the natural touch… All is the fear and nothing is the love,/ As little is the wisdom, where the flight/ So runs against all reason” (act 4 scene 2 page 1). This is upsetting to see because it shows that she is fixed on doing what society expects because she believes it will get her all she wants.
A person has to be able to be committed to their spouse and marriage. There are many ways to measure commitment. In some cases, a person is only able to be with someone whom they believe are not right for them. However, this can be a conflict because they know they will not be able to a stable marriage.

In order to be defined as a leader, one must be loyal, decisive and able to take the initiative. According to this definition, Odysseus does not fit the profile of a leader. For example, he is loyal to neither his wife nor crew. When Odysseus visited Circe, he disregarded his marriage to Penelope. By engaging in intercourse, he violated the trust of his wife while she remained loyal, despite the urges from the suitors.
