Gertrude is Hamlet’s mother and the Queen of Denmark. When King Hamlet is murdered by Claudius, she didn 't seem to daunt her and shortly thereafter got married to Hamlet 's Uncle Claudius. This gives a suspense in this point of the play because it makes the audience think about if Gertrude had anything to do with the murder of her husband or if she helped plan the murder with Claudius. When Gertrude married the person that killed her husband, Hamlet takes it personal and she basically loses her son because he 's so upset with her. Gertrude tells Hamlet to stop grieving over his father 's death because it normal, but when you think about it, it 's not normal.
The idea of loss is conveyed in both poems ‘Remember’ by Christina Rossetti and ‘In the Park’ by Gwen Harwood. Where Rossetti explores the loss of a loved one through a dying woman who wishes inner peace for her husband, Harwood explores the loss of identity through motherhood. In the poem ‘Mirror’ by Sylvia Plath, the idea of grieving is explored as the narrator is grieving her youth and beauty. Similarly, in ‘Pietà’ by James McAuley, the idea of grief is also explored, however in difference, the narrator is grieving the death of a child. Rossetti demonstrates the idea of loss through the narrator explaining to her husband that her death is inevitable.

Hamlet wants his mother to love him not Claudius. The quotes also shows Hamlet’s anger towards his mother remarrying. Hamlet’s feelings towards his mother in this quote also represents the Oedipus Complex.

On page 279, it says that “[The Two Fridas] are left abandoned by Diego, [Frida] is holding her own hand and links her two selves with a blood vein… The Two Fridas is an image of self- nurture: Frida comforts, guards and fortifies herself” (Herrera, 1983, 279). The painting goes on to show how without Diego she is all she has. She felt hurt and in pain but she couldn't let that keep her from doing what she loved to do, which was paint. Her divorce with Diego Rivera punctured a hole in Kahlo’s heart—she truly loved him. She used that pain to inspire her art pieces that get lots of popularity.
Star-crossed lovers are meant to be split apart. In the tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, one is able to witness how severe mistakes were neglected, and left unfulfilled, that led to the tragic passing of the two protagonists. Romeo and Juliet are from two families, the Capulets and the Montagues, who have past rivalries and do not associate with one another. Romeo and Juliet hurriedly marry each other, but because of their ill-fate, they eventually met their demise. Their death is caused not so much by their own flaws as by numerous obstacles in their path, which are created by other characters.
Hale as she is seeing first-hand what has become of the once vibrant Minnie Foster. It is interesting Mrs. Hale keeps referring to Mrs. Wright by her name before she married Mr. Wright. The author does this to reinforce the differences in the kind of person Minnie Foster was and the kind of person Mrs. Wright is. Mrs. Peters is also seeing and feeling how sad and lonesome life has been for Mrs. Wright. Mrs. Hale regrets not being a better friend and is beginning to feel some culpability for the murder of Mr. Wright.
Additionally, earlier in their argument, Capulet says, “My fingers itch.--Wife, we scarce thought us blessed/ That god had lent us but this only child/ But now I see this one is one too much/ And that we have a curse in having her”(3. 5. 170- 174). Both of these passages add on to the sadness of their death because they happened moments before Juliet died and they are words that sound like curses coming from a parent's mouth. When Juliet dies, the audience is left with wondering how Lord Capulet felt as he mourned for Juliet, especially after he disowned, disparaged, and deprecated his daughter, which just fueled the dramatic effect of Romeo’s and Juliet’s death.
Death of a Beautiful Woman Edgar Allan Poe uses the death of women as a main topic in many of his stories, including “Annabel Lee” and “The Fall Of The House Of Usher.” Poe’s writing about death is most likely a correlation to the fact that he comes from a childhood where most of the women in his life--his mom, foster mom, first love, and wife--die of tuberculous. In “Annabel Lee” and “The Fall Of The House Of Usher” Poe uses the recurring motif of women dying to reflect his grief. Poe uses his poems and short stories to relieve his heartbreak from the women in his life who pass away, in particular his wife Virginia. Poe’s poem “Annabel Lee” is published two years after Virginia 's death. “Annabel Lee” is a poem about a beautiful young girl
In other words the author used Kate chopin used the two types of irony situational and dramatic irony because she wanted to make the audience shocked because i do not think a woman would act like that if her husband died.Nobody knew why she really died but we are gonna think that she died of shock.The reason they said she died was from shock in my opinion because the doctors had said that she died from the joy that kills and in the story it says “she had died of heart disease--the joy that kills.WHAT'S YOUR THOUGHT OF THE STORY “THE STORY OF AN
Queen Gertrude is the Queen of Denmark, Hamlet’s mother, the widow of Old Hamlet and the wife of Claudius, brother of her dead husband. Gertrude is ignorant and a woman who means no harm but because of her actions it contributes greatly to the terrible events that occur throughout the play. In this play there’s many conflicts, one of the first conflicts was when Gertrude married King Claudius two months after Old Hamlet’s death. Gertrude is ignorant because she’s not aware of anything happening. For example she’s not aware that King Hamlet’s murder was by his own brother Claudius, even though they were some hints out there to show that it was King Claudius who killed Old Hamlet.
We can look at Blanche’s husband death as a cause of her mental illness because she is haunted by the scene of Allan’s death in the entire play. And that’s how her grip on reality seems to slip from herself. She uses fantasy as magic that protects from reality’s harsh blow. Tennessee William uses Blanche’s fantasy to contrast
