Unlike the reality of her outside world which was minimally described the narrator but inside Mrs. Mallard’s mind offers something that is lively and well
On line eleven, Luciana informs her sister that men have more freedom than women because “their business still lies out o’door,” essentially preaching the importance of a woman’s place in the household. Over the next few lines, we see Adriana and Luciana go back and forth with simple sentences, free of any complex language, about how women should act in the presence of their husbands (2.1.10-14). Instead of allowing one character to give an extended monologue, Shakespeare wants the audience to understand the level of tension that exists between the two sisters. The constant flow of insults and
Genji kept courting Princess Asagao but she didn’t let him conquer her. Normally, females were obligated to marry men that has interest on them, but Murasaki went the opposite direction in the story. Murasaki created a female character strong enough to reject Genji but still delicate to fit the Heian female description. The powerful depiction of women in Tale of Genji mirrored the persona of Murasaki herself. Murasaki did many things not common during the Heian period.
She insists that acquaintances, friends, even family call her Dogface. It’s horrible. It’s almost as if she uses it to put herself down.

According to County Attorney Henderson it is because she is not the best homemaker. In this scene, the County Attorney says, “Dirty Towels! Not much of a housekeeper would you say ladies?”(Trifles 982). The women were line by line verbally attacked with words of the three men in the play. Suggesting that nothing in the kitchen was of any importance, women worrying over trifles, and like mentioned before failing in “basic” duties of a wife (Trifle 982).
Mayella has worked to be a respectable woman, but many things hold her back: her dad, her looks, and her personality. Being a woman and living the way she does, Mayella’s life is ignoble, but the way she treats people makes her deserve the life she has been given. For example, Mayella forces a man to lie, which results in her flaws come around to hurt her, and her to not qualify for a chance to be respected. During Tom’s trial, Tom said, “...scared I’d hafta face up to what I didn’t do.” (page 265), and that’s because Mayella indirectly took an innocent man’s life, which makes her personality even more unattractive.
Since the marriages in the novel tend to be forced, they are not likely to be influenced by love. For Nana, the prospect of marriage was ruined by a ‘jinn.’ She remembers the lost prospect fondly. Mariam finds hope in her marriage as something that could lead to contentment and possibly to love, but the marriage actually devolves into abuse and oppression. Only Laila escapes the abusive bonds placed
Elizabeth finds her mother’s marriage obsession annoying but somewhat reasonable. She understands that marriage is very important to a young girl but feels like her mother is a bit too crazy about it considering her daughters are getting married, not her. Without Mrs Bennet pushing the girls to be married, Jane would have never met Bingley and Elizabeth would have never met Darcy. The relationship between Elizabeth and her parents is not one of her strongest but is one of the more influential in her life. Her mother and father are very different people and Elizabeth acts more like her father than her mother.

Although Petruchio put Kate through stressful obstacles somehow she still fell in love after he proved the point of her selfishness.
Similarly the man overcame the woman in the relationship. Janie chose to conform to the outward marriage and new relationship. She became, in essence, a trophy wife.

As the story progresses, the internal strife between how Janie acts and how Janie feels shows the lack of the true Janie.
Somebody thought it natural to play”(Hurston 95-96). Janie instantly knew that Tea Cake was different.

He has made a few mistakes, yes, but does the best he can to keep Janie happy and in love. It is depressing that Janie had to shoot him at the end of the novel, but at least she realizes that she was finally able to live the life she wanted for herself rather than the life her grandmother wanted for
She continuously mocks her, doing things that make Hester feel bad and frustrated. Pearl is Hesters silent antagonist and she might even be better at keeping Hester from getting what she wants more than Roger. Pearl has of course caused all these events to take place with her birth, she also causes Hester to wear the A like the village did, and she as stated before mocks her for the entirety of the book.
