Where as Jane, like any Victorian woman, consistently conceals her passion for the expectations of the time period, Mr. Rochester flourishes his ego with the exposure of his passion. Moreover, Brontё displays how Mr. Rochester begins to grasp his role as a male in the Victorian Era when he learns to free his expression of his passion and devotion. Mr. Rochester wishes for the promise by Jane “‘say nothing about it’” (Brontё 179). Evidently, Brontё indicates Mr. Rochester’s fear of being exposed for the passion he senses from someone like the past, beautiful Bertha. Furthermore, Mr. Rochester’s passion draws insecurity for thinking about the mad woman he keeps hidden away, yet Brontё implies Jane being the shining light to a new passion.

The Gothic Novel is considered as an appearance of the late 18th and early 19th century, culminating in Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, first published in 1818. Ideas of that time period surfaced in fictional prose and thus influenced the Gothic Revival at the end of the century, including works such as Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1887) as well as Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890). The conception of duality in fictional prose has been a repetitive motif throughout literary history. This double may manifest in form of evil doppelgängers and hence, it reveals the shadow selves of the human kind. Along with the establishment of psychology as science, the literary double represents a completely new way of thinking.
Also he felt unwanted by Diana. Since Diana treats Mr. Austen like this she must not feel the same way about him. The short story “The Chaser” is an example of how men get treated badly and unequally because they do so much for the women but the women doesn’t seem to care on what they do. In conclusion, the story the chaser shows feminist criticism because Mr. Austen felt like he needs to get a love potion for Diana. In this case, Diana has the full control in the relationship.

Upholding Daisy as a golden girl, an ideal that is unrealistic, portrays Daisy as only an object of Gatsby’s affection. After Daisy chooses not to reject Tom’s love for Gatsby’s, Gatsby frustration is expressed to Nick as he says, "You must remember, old sport, she was very excited this afternoon. He told her those things in a way that frightened her – that made it look as if I was some kind of cheap sharper.
Introduction In this paper I want to portray role of women in gothic writing by seeing qualities of the gothic novel, in the point of view of Horace Walpole 's 'The Castle of Otranto '. In 1747, Horace Walpole purchased Strawberry Hill, which was situated on the Thames close London; here he resuscitated the Gothic style numerous decades prior to his Victorian successors. It was a response against neoclassicism. This whimsical neo-gothic invention started another design incline. This affected his composition and actually, the English Gothic novel began with his 'Gothic story '; 'The Castle of Otranto '.
In ‘My Last Duchess’ the duke couldn’t love his wife as she was too flirtatious and too easily made happy. The monologues satiric condemnation of the duchess as she “liked whate’er/She looked on” and “blushed” as “she thanked men” is heavy in irony, for in each criticism he bestows on the late duchess, the duke reveals his own distasteful nature. This is in stark contrast to Porphyria’s lover, who killed out of a warped sense of love. The speakers desperation to keep his lover forever and shut out society’s unjust rules on social standings, led him to “strangle her”, which is also a metaphor for being strangled by his emotions, subtly reaching for sympathy from the audience.
