Her loyalty to him seems forced and compulsory with her desperation of pleasing him. She obeyed his instruction on stealing Desdemona 's handkerchief with the hopes of Iago’s admiration. She told her, "Who would not make her husband a cuckold to make him a monarch?”. It is clear that she wants to gratify Iago. However, despite of her submissiveness, she remains discrete from him intellectually.
She hath Dian's wit” comparing Rosaline to the goddess of virginity. The phrase “Cupid’s arrow” is one that is common in classical literature about love and it is clear that Rosaline is simply a target for this learned affection. Shakespeare’s use of oxymorons in Romeo’s speeches show the poetic nature of his ‘love’ for Rosaline. For example in the very first scene of the play Romeo uses the oxymorons “waking sleep”, “O loving
They claim that Katherine develops affections of appreciation and respect for Petruchio as the play goes on. Moreover, they associate Katherine’s newfound amiability and endearment to her recognition of Petruchio 's hardwork in providing for her and improving her personality. In fact, throughout the play, Katherine subtly conveys her love through slight gestures of devotion, finally manifesting all of her care for Petruchio in her final speech. After Bianca and the Widow refuse to return to their husbands in Act 5 Scene 2, Katherine’s begins her monologue, saying, “Thy husband is thy lord, thy life, thy keeper, thy head, thy sovereign. One that cares for thee, And for thy maintenance commits his body to pain labor both by sea and land…Whilst thou liest warm at home, secure and safe” (Shakespeare 5.2.163-167).
What makes Ophelia so unique is her innocence: for life, for love of Hamlet, in naivete in all aspects, insanity, and in her suicidal tendencies. Ophelia’s love for Hamlet truly is strong in this play. This is the first time Ophelia has experienced true love before. Ophelia tells her father, Polonius,“my lord, he hath importun’d me with love in honorable fashion”(1.3.119-120). Ophelia believes Hamlet’s love is true and honorable.
Imagine knowing you are going to meet the love of your life, but also knowing as a result of your love, you and your partner were both going to die. The story of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare takes us through the step by step story of the “star crossed lovers” and their passage of their “death-marked love”. Although there are many important figures in the story of Romeo and Juliet, two characters that play the most important role in their story of love are the Nurse and Friar Lawrence. The young teens each had their mentors who they looked up to and seeked guidance from throughout the story. They each played their specific role, as the Nurse tend to be a family member of the Capulets, while although Friar Lawrence did not have a role
Perrault’s version of Cinderella’s ending is happier and includes forgiveness. Although the step sisters were cruel and treated Cinderella horribly she forgave them in the end and even found good husbands for them, and they all lived happily ever after. You can see from this that this story is intended to teach a moral lesson of forgiveness and kindness like I explained above. In Perrault’s version you can be terrible and unpleasant but you will be forgiven because that’s part of life. The Grimm brothers however have a different point of view on that matter.
The dialog is exceedingly significant to the overall plot as it establishes Olivia 's love for 'Cesario ' and an inkling to Cesario 's loyalty and love for Orsino. Viola 's description of what she would do if she loved Olivia as Orsino does attracts Olivia attention and affection. Viola 's lines to Olivia of making "a willow cabin" (1.5.271) at the gate and writing songs of "contemned love" (1.5.273) to sing them "in the dead of night" (1.5.274) conveys an agonizingly desperate love that should be pitied. She wants Olivia to know that the extent of Olivia 's rejection to Orsino 's love would lead even 'Cesario ' to a despair that Oliva "should pity" (1.5.279). These lines were prompted by Olivia to see what 'Cesario ' would do if he loved her as deeply as Cesario and was rejected.
For example in Act II Scene 2 upon hearing about Calpurnia’s dream of his murder Caesar decides that “for [her] humour [he] will stay home. Brutus and his relations to Portia do not greatly differ from Caesar’s and Calpurnia’s relationship. Alongside Caesar and Brutus, Henry V in Act V Scene 2, during his courtship to Katherine, exposes the audience to a gentler and more delicate aspect of himself which contrasts the powerful, strong-minded being previously portrayed. This can be seen at the very beginning of his talk with Katherine where he says “Marry, if you were to put me to verses […] Kate, why you undid me”. The very fact that he is admitting to being uneasy and that this phrase and the lines which follow it are all in prose illustrate his incapability of developing a conversation with a woman he is infatuated by.
Shakespeare gives us a picture of Shylock as a cold hard revengeful man. Portia Smart, wealthy, and beautiful, Portia embodies the virtues that are typical of Shakespeare’s heroines. At the beginning of the play we do not see Portia’s potential, as she is a prisoner to her father’s dying wishes this opening appearance proves to reveal the rule abiding lady. She does not ignore the stipulations of her father’s will, she goes through a whole lot of suitors, happy to see these particular suitors go, but sad that she has no choice in the matter. When Bassanio arrives, however, Portia proves herself to be highly resourceful, begging the man she loves to stay a while before picking a chest, and finding loopholes in the will’s provision that we never thought existed.
This demands the readers to empathise with the bride. Simultaneously, this validates Mew's intention to justify a woman's position in an arranged marriage. A wife could not legally refuse the sexual demands of her husband. The tone of the Farmer's monologue is honest and matter of fact. The farmer appears to be overwhelmed with frustration and desire towards his bride, 'sweet as the first violets'.
