Desdemona and Othello’s courtship seriously offends Desdemona’s father which puts the both of their lives at risk.
He is also often seen as equating love with luck and feels that his mother will only feel this love for him if he is capable of putting his money on winners. Before the short story even begins, “the process of disaffection has already occurred, and the close love between husband and a wife which would have generated the mystical energy necessary for the family’s well-being has been transformed into an ugly passion, greed” (Koban 3). Paul begins to feel that he is the only one who will be able to fulfill this need for his mother because she feels she cannot do it for herself. She strongly believes that she will never have the ability of being lucky considering she married a man who lacked this luckiness and gift of choosing a winning horse. Along with the rest of his family, Paul days are so consumed with the idea of making money that they often hear repeated phrases throughout their household.
At the young age that Jane is, she should not yet be self conscious of her appearance and concerned about her level of beauty, yet she becomes “humbled by the consciousness of physical inferiority to Eliza, John, and Georgiana Reed” (Bronte 7). The Reed family fits into the stereotype of inner beauty not matching outer beauty; they are extremely rich and beautiful, yet they lack basic levels of compassion.

The ‘perfect girl’ does not even match the narrator’s tastes, or exceed his beauty standards. He too admits it is unusual, confiding to his friend the weirdness of it all. Even though the narrator does little to none to engage with the ‘perfect girl’ she is perfect because he chose to fall in love with her. This can be supported with the fact that he was so afraid of being rejected by her, that he failed to approach her and had lost her in the end; his ridiculous fears are stemmed from how completely perfect the narrator thinks she is. Even though the narrator was convinced that fate brought him to her, he over idealised the ‘perfect girl’, severing any chance of making his perfect romance
She loves her father dearly, however when her father asked her to do a love test, everything changed; Cordelia did not know how to express her love for her father verbally. The love test is a test where all the daughters must express how much they love their own father with words. Goneril and Regan went first and told their father that they love him with all their heart, however, when it was Cordelia went, she said nothing; She loves his “majesty according to [her] bond, no more nor less” (Shakespeare 1.1.91-92). Cordelia went against her father by defending her answer through reasoning that if her sisters love their father with all their hearts, they do not give any love to their husbands. In other words, she was implying that her sisters must be telling a lie.
She cares for her master and does all that she can to make his life longer and happier. She acquiesces in the fact that slaves should not read and write. Like Mama in A Raisin in the Sun, she believes in God and his grace. She is conscious of what is right but the change in Rissa from the traditional mammy of the myth to the rebellious mother occurs when her son Hannibal is blinded by Hiram’s son Everett. Though she knows that her master has been all along a good man and a kind one, she is not able to forgive him.
He also shows the importance of virginity through how her father ‘disowns’ her when she is accused of being unfaithful to Claudio. Now moving onto Beatrice, the cousin of Hero. She is a sharp, witty and feisty woman and unlike Hero, does not conform to the expectations placed on women at that time. Throughout the play, she swears that she will never get married to any man, and that no man will ever be good enough for her. However as the play goes on, we realize that she is very much afraid of being vulnerable to love, and uses her wit as a cover for it.
Relentless and obedient is what makes Macbeth who she is. She will do everything in her power for her husband to gain the same status she has and “Yet do I fear thy nature/ It is too full o’th’ milk of human kindness/ To catch the nearest way. Thou wouldst be great,/Art not without ambition, but without/
It shows that our flaws make up a large part of who we are which make it very difficult to separate the two. To remove it would only result in failure. Aylmer finally is able to remove “the last crimson tint of the birthmark -- that sole token of human imperfection” (13). The mark shows that people are inherently imperfect and it’s what makes us human. Once Aylmer removes that imperfection, Georgiana dies because it is impossible to obtain perfection as a person.
She stands as figure of strength for John, for her kids and unborn child, and for Salem. She gives up her husband so he can do what he believes, so he can show what is right to Salem. She knows he would not be able to stand himself, live with himself, if he stayed alive after the deaths of so many innocent people, so she puts her needs aside and tells John what he needs to
Although the theme of The Birthmark, has been interpreted in different ways, I believe the theme of the story is human imperfection and the strive for perfection, which is demonstrated by the birthmark on Georgiana’s face, her husband Aylmer, and their marriage. The birthmark on Georgiana’s face symbolizes human mortality and imperfection as believed among many critics. Most criticism has accepted the rather forthright and explicit allegorical interpretation of Hawthorne's "The Birthmark" that regards the mark on Georgiana Aylmer's cheek as the external sign of her human, imperfect condition and understands Aylmer's attempt to remove it as the expression of either scientific, rational, reformist presumption, or of too aspiring an idealism.
According to Dave Willis “A strong marriage requires loving your spouse even in those moments when they aren’t being lovable; it means believing in them even when they struggle to believe in themselves”. Kay Boyle’s Astronomer’s Wife displays the lack of loyalty for her marriage. It is shown at the end of the story that Mrs. Ames shows no restraint for the plumber. Mrs. Ames’ ethics now come to play because she was about to make an unjust choice. As the plumber follows the pipes down the pathway “the astronomer’s wife stood up, fixed a pin in her hair, and turned around towards the kitchen” (Boyle Pg. 148).
The McKinley case study is a story that involves a wide variety of problems that many families will go through at one point in their lives or another. We all know someone who is going through, or has gone through similar circumstances. “Suffering”, I believe is inevitable, how we relate to our problems really define us and the greatest testament of character is how we take control of those circumstances, whether it is taking immediate action, making different choices or seeking for help. Social workers help us understand our problems at different levels and layers, by using theories that help define human behaviors. According to Hutchinson, Human behavior is multidimensional, and there are many perspectives that help us understand people
