Dinah’s brothers did not trust the prince who had done such an awful thing to their sister (34). However, the prince tried every day to prove his love to Dinah and show that he was worthy to be in that relationship. In Candide, everyone in Cunegonde’s family disapproves of their possible marriage.

When Katherina’s father says that she must marry before her sister, Katharina asks if her father will “make a stale of me amongst these mates.” Her contempt for Bianca’s suiters is bold, it is not unreasonable; nor are her objections to being objectified at the hands of these men. Later, she expresses her frustration with her lack of autonomy saying “as though, belike I knew not what to take and what to leave? Ha!” Katharina’s father, and later her husband Petruchio do not listen to her wishes or allow her to speak her mind. During a disagreement about a cap between Petruchio and Katharina she says “Why, sir I trust I may have leave to speak, and speak I will. I am no child, no babe” (4.3,32) Unlike her sister Bianca who demonstrates “mild behavior and sobriety” (1.1,10) Katharina is outspoken and expresses her discontent.
The first reason being, that the only psychological or physical stress Goneril and Regan had to endure from King Lear, that we know of, was knowing that they weren’t loved by their father as much as their youngest sister Cordeilia; along with some humiliation caused by Lear’s constant need of an ego boost.

Then with Ginny acting like nothing was wrong, because she buried the memories away for good, Rose thought it was okay to just act like it was okay.

A reader might find it interesting how paralleled Juliet and her mother are. Had Lady Capulet chosen love, she could have been dead like Juliet. Had Juliet chosen duty, she could have ended up in her mother’s shoes, married to a man that she doesn’t like or
The longer they live on the island, their society turns chaotic: No one obeys the regulations set into place and most of them do not take their predicament as serious as they should.

It is a lack of clarity that creates chaos. The chaos in Shakespeare 's King Lear is due in part to Lear 's inability to see the true nature of situations going on around him. The onset of his blindness is illustrated through his obliviousness to his daughters deception, which results in his decision to divide his kingdom among only two of his three daughters. Past tense and passive. Blindness is the catalyst that causes much disaster in the play.
