The audience is able to see both of the lovers, but Juliet is not aware of Romeo’s presence. Both of them are insecure about the relationship. For once Juliet does not feel completely ready it is “too rash, too unadvised, too sudden” and “too like the lightning, which doth cease to be ere one can say ‘It lightens’.” (Act 2 Scene 2) for her. Juliet feels too overwhelmed by the sudden affection which is just like a lightning stroke. Yet Shakespeare displays an emancipatory access to woman kind, portrayed as Juliet, due to the reason that she stands up for her own created problems and in the long run matures as a self-confident woman.
Throughout the story readers can see Mrs. Mallard being characterized through the ironic events. The story says, “And yet she had loved him - sometimes. Often she had not” (8). This shows how Mrs. Mallard cares for her husband but doesn’t enjoy the power he carries over her, which nobody in the story realizes. “She arose at length and opened the door to her sister’s importunities.
Thus, unlike the characters around her, such as the sneaky minister or the greedy lovers, Hester is the one character who lives by reality instead of appearance. The best example of this is her lifestyle before and after she is shunned. Before her exile, Hester recognizes the unjust nature of the laws around her. She refuses to follow them and present a façade of perfection and happiness. When Dimmesdale demands that she name her baby’s father and promises that her sentence will be lightened as a reward, Hester steadfastly refuses (Hawthorne, 1850).
The audience knew the plan for Beatrice and Benedick, but their own confidence in their wit betrayed them. Also, their witty comments to each other make for highly entertaining moments. Claudio allows other people to fool him into believing untrue things, which leads to dramatic altercations with numerous characters. Dogberry’s unwittiness leads to a coincidence that saves the whole play and creates an ironic feeling that the least intelligent character discovered the evil plot. “The wit of Shakespeare’s play informs the words spoken by the characters, places the characters themselves as truly witty and intelligent, inappropriately facetious, or ingeniously witless, suggests the lines of action these characters will
I don’t tell the truth, I tell what ought to be truth. And if that is sinful, then let me be damned for it!” Blanches magic is seen through her illusions and delusions.

Stanley who represents realism in this novel and play pops Blanche’s illusion bubble through seeing the realism in scene ten he says: “not once did you pull any wool over this boy’s eyes!” Not only Stanley had broken her world of illusion, but also Mitch who is influenced by Stanley and destroys the protection of darkness by exposing her to the bright light.
Hulga believes that Manley is easily manipulated and can be seduced easily. “During the night she had imagined that she seduced him” (180) Hulga concludes that Manley will be easily persuaded by herself and that she is truly superior than he is intellectually. “True genius can get an idea across even to an inferior mind.” (180) Hulga’s relationship with Manley continues to grow as they learn more about each other.

His lack of empathy towards her allowed him to do the logical and sensible action on what to do for Blanche. Blanche has attempted many men to feel empathetic for her; two of these men are Mitch and Stanley. Mitch, who is greatly in love with her, becomes empathetic for her when he learns about her sad history. His resilience is weak when he learns about the rest of her story. Then there is Stanley, whom doesn’t care for
I cannot understand why she didn’t just leave him, but that’s probably just who Daisy is. She just dwelled in her own misery, because she was afraid, afraid of losing her reputation. With Gatsby she became totally different, cheerful and gay. It was good for her, there’s no doubt about that. But she also became very careless.
Although Macbeth has done some really bad deeds, he cannot be called a bad person out and out who goes on to achieve his ambitions without any consideration. He’s also a victim of the realization that there is no meaning as such in this world. This instability snatches his power to think and he gives in to his wife’s provoking speeches without providing any counter arguments to her. If he had any of his individuality left, he certainly must have had given some thought to her speeches but the lack of it shows his confusion. As soon as he joins the opposites foul and fair, he’s encountered by the weird (which is undefined because in the world of Macbeth nothing is normal).
She loves the idea of Gatsby like his money and his materialistic things, but not in a relationship kind of way. Daisy is a very good actress, because she sure makes it look as if she is in love with Gatsby, but she cannot fathom to leave Tom and his money. When Daisy is told by Gatsby to say she is in love with him, she freaks out and loses it. Really, Daisy’s emotions are very unstable and she is much easier to read as a character at the end of the book. After the accident, Daisy did not bother to call Gatsby or even attend his funeral.
Abigail the most flat out negative, Danforth was a lawful negative, and Parris was a social negative meaning he did not get along with others and liked to do his own thing. The negative characters really shaped the story, if there were no negatives and this was the perfect utopia they wanted to create then this would have never happened. The most enjoyful part of the play is that Arthur Miller wrote this because he could relate this to a real life situation with the red scare, kind of how society can relate to this today with some people accusing most of the Islam religion of being
Curley’s wife had a dissimilar dream than the others, to be famous; however, this, just like the men 's dream, did not transpire. Curley’s wife talks to the men—Crooks, Lennie, and Candy — about her dreams of being famous " I tell ya I could of went with shows. Not jus ' one, neither. An ' a guy tol ' me he could put me in pitchers…" She was breathless with indignation. "—Sat 'iday night.
Her sexual desires which at first had been denied by her husband 's death were now denied by her need to find a husband. As she no longer owned Belle Reve, which afforded her some social status, her only means of tempting suitors was through her sexuality and her fading looks. Blanche’s knowledge that she must attract men with her physical body is shown when she tries to get Mitch 's attention by undressing in the light so that he can see the outline of her body “Blanche moves back into the streak of light. She raises her arms and stretches, as she moves indolently back to the chair” (88). However, her sexual encounters quickly gained her a reputation that prevented many
