In Sophocles’ Antigone, the antagonist, Creon is a foil to the protagonist, Antigone. Creon is also considered a flat character due to the fact we do not know much about said character. Antigone would be considered a round character because we know much about her ideals, personality, and defining traits. The contrast between these two characters is great, (and two masks will be used to compare them). Antigone is the perfect example of a protagonist, yet the opposite of ordinary in Roman society for she is loyal, headstrong, yet loving.
They also would talk things through, but they both have their flaws. Romeo falls in love with the beauty of women and doesn 't even get a chance to get to know them. While Juliet doesn 't want to be married, for fear that her marriage will be like her parents, where there 's no love expect for their child. So Romeo and Juliet aren 't model citizens and have their flaws and they both seem to leap before looking. Both Romeo and Juliet seem to act hast in their desertions, which,
‘Are you [Guy Montag] happy?’”(Bradbury 10). This chipper personality directly contradicts that of Mildred Montag, the wife of Guy. She is a cold, miserable prototype of her shifting society. Her name means, one with gentle strength. Just by looking at the meaning of both female’s names, a clear contrast and favoritism in Clarisse is already found.
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
In Ovid’s Metamorphoses many of the women are portrayed in a lesser light in comparison to the males. In this example, Scylla has just pulled out her father’s magical purple hair that keeps their country safe from intruders. Her infatuation with King Minos has led her to betray her family and her people which makes her seem irrational. The imagery created from these lines paints a picture of a weak, illogical woman who will do anything for a male to return her love. Scylla seems almost insane for going against her father who has been protecting their people for King Minos that she has never met.
Even with a humble and understanding husband who would go above and beyond to make her happy she is still unhappy. Blessed with a beautiful physical beauty, but not the affluent lifestyle that she yearns for, which lead her to continuously seek for what she cannot posses. Her greed for a lavish lifestyle stop her from enjoying her basic life and to constantly judging what she posses ''She suffered from the poorness of her house, from its mean walls, worn chairs, and ugly curtains. All these things, of which other women of her class would not even have been aware, tormented and insulted her'' (Maupassant 7). Mathilde always imagined herself in a high social position with wonderful jewels and expensive clothing instead she have to wear simple clothing.
This shows that Troy was fortunate enough to have Rose as his wife, but he was so unhappy with his life he found someone else to be with and love. Troy says to Rose that he is going to keep seeing the girl he has cheated on her with, Alberta. He then tells her, “It's just...[Alberta] gives me a different idea...a different understanding about myself. I can step out of this house and get away from the pressures and problems" (Wilson, 1986, p. 68). Since Troy couldn’t be satisfied by Rose, he found someone else who made him feel like he could escape his
One of the reasons Odysseus is not a hero is that he is untrustworthy. This characteristic is shown when he reveals that had romantic involvement with two woman on his journey, even though he has a wife. “I shall not see on earth a place more dear, though I have been detained long by Calypso, loveliest among goddesses, who held me in her smooth caves, to be her heart’s delight, as Circe of Aeaea, the enchantress, desired me, and detained me in her hall.” (pg. 599, lines 11-16) Some people may try to defend Odysseus’s actions by saying it was normal at the time to cheat on your wife. Newsflash!
Her treachery disgusts Sylvia, leading a reader to conclude that Sugar plays a submissive role when with Sylvia. With the knowledge of the lesson, Sugar defies her cousin's aggression to explain the injustice she learned from the trip. After Sylvia and Sugar leave, Sugar seems to forget about the realization she came to. Even though that happened it is apparent how the lesson caused her to change her dynamic, giving a little more depth and
Antigone is put at a disposition at the beginning of the work as she is a woman trying to voice her opinion in a time where men were only heard. Some may attribute her lack of voicing to her arrogant attitude, possibly rightly so, developed from the sequence of events in the work. Antigone felt entitled to bury her brother; she felt entitled that her voice be heard. She went against Creon’s command and tried to bury her brother. Antigone scorns Creon at the beginning of the play during questioning by back-talking and arrogantly answering Creon.
This quote means that something that look normal and sometimes they are mean people when you have them alone with you. Sometimes they act the same as you but they can be completely different when you get them alone. They also act like they like everything about you and then they turn around and then hate you. Some people
