He is a symbol of destructive love because he ended his marriage and somebody 's life over jealousy “ sir twas not her husband 's presence only, called that spot of joy into the duchess cheek” (13-15). He has his wife killed because she is paying other men attention. His wife could have started it but the husband wanted control and respect and he couldn 't get it so he decided to kill her. The last Duchess was killed by her husband because she was flirting with other men and her husband didn 't like it “thats my last duchess painted on the wall, looking as if she were alive” (1-2). In this poem destructive love was showed by explaining why the wife was killed.
‘Oh, please let’s get out.’” and Jay is left feeling hurt and betrayed, when in fact all that should have mattered to Jay is that Daisy loves him now (142). Obsession is present in Ophelia and Hamlet’s in a different way than in Jay and Daisy’s. Hamlet’s obsession with revenge ultimately leads to the death of Ophelia. By allowing Ophelia to believe that Hamlet is insane and killing Ophelia’s father, Polonius, without thinking, Hamlet’s obsession with revenge causes not only the downfall of Ophelia and Hamlet’s relationship, but also causes the emotional downfall of Ophelia, which leads to her untimely death. The romantic relationships of Daisy and Tom in the novel and Claudius and Gertrude in the play exhibit the destructive effects of adultery.
explicitly states Margaret’s motivation for doing that: ‘The slave mother … killed her child rather than see it taken back to slavery’ (557). These slaves saw death a better alternative than slavery and for the love they had for their children, they preferred killing them than allowing them see the dehumanizing institution of slavery. The slave women have always suffered as an effect of slavery. They were robbed of every possession – even their motherhood. That is why Sethe’s act of destroying her own creation becomes the subject and order of controversies.
Moreover, Claudio's quickness on believing that Broachio, who claims to be Hero’s supposed lover, comes to show that he is unworthy of her. On their wedding he publicly shamed her by stating, “Give not this rotten orange to your friend…Behold how like a maid she blushes here” (4.1.32-34). This then causes Leonato to fake Hero’s “death” so that Claudio can grieve her memory and admit that he was wrong on publicly bashing her. Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing revolves around the manipulation and deceptions. Benedict and Beatrice are deceived for their own good.
The goddess was known to be jealous of Hercules, and extended to great lengths to make life difficult for him. Similarly, Petruchio begins to act deranged when he arrived to his wedding, only harming his reputation and family name, not his bride. In this allusion, Hera seems to be a representation of Katherine, while his murdered wife is a symbol for Petruchio’s ruined reputation after making a fool of himself to improve Katherine’s
Thesis: Medea’s insanity which led her to killing her children suggests she let her emotions take control of her proving she is not at fault for her actions. Topic Sentence: To begin, Medea’s lets her emotions overcome her when Jason leaves her to marry Glauce the daughter of King Creon. Context #1 (1-2): Jason has just abandoned Medea and his two children for Glauce in attempt to greater his wealth and status. Medea questions herself if she was a good wife to him that he would leave her for a princess: Quote #1 (Varies): “What shall I do? If only I were dead!..
But there to me, Medea really does not know what being in love truly is. She seems to be hungry for it rather than feeling it. For her, Jason seemed to be on her top list of people who she is willing her every piece of her life to be with. This is where we begin to see her morality crumble up, as she loses her sanity so much, that she kills her brother
Hedda suddenly cannot stand the relationship between them because now Mrs. Elvsted has achieved a kind of relationship with Løvborg that Hedda was unable to have. She starts to attempt to destroy the relationship by revealing Mrs. Elvsted’s love for Eilert Løvborg. When this backfires, she takes a more radical approach and burns the manuscript they created together, a symbol of their love. She openly says while committing the act, “I’m burning your child, Thea … Your child and Eilert Løvborg’s” (Ibsen 1528). It is her jealousy of the relationship between her former lover and her friend that leads her to repeatedly attempt to destroy their relationship and take joy in the
surprising to create Balarabe Jr. as a character who is guilty of infidelity by keeping a concubine while he abandons Zaria, his wife. They have turned away from the fact that this contentious issue is a hydra-headed monster which is capable of been able to ruin a home. They claim that it may result in taking on a second wife, in complete neglect or abandonment or both. According to them, how does a wife react to marital infidelity in a situation where she expects no redress from society, tradition and family? This is actually the plight of Baram Alkali’s case in Personal Angle.
The Greek myth of Agamemnon was about a king, who was betrayed by his wife despite his war efforts to reclaim his throne. In the second last stanza, “The broken wall, the burning roof and tower / And Agamemnon dead.” (lines 10, 11) references to the innocent expectations Leda had of the swan but was wrongly mistaken when the rape occurred. The betrayal takes place by the swan gaining Leda’s trust by impersonation of purity and victimizing her. This use of mistrust resulted in the confusion of Leda, not able to grasp what she wanted. By including this allusion of broken trust, the author ties in Agamemnon to Leda, showing the readers how misplaced Leda’s thoughts can be due to the holy bird she once
