she said as she theif on Desdemona’s handkerchief. This great love, which is a redeeming trait in her personality and morality. Despite of her affection, she eventually recognizes Iago’s disinterest towards her and inequality in their marriage. “But I do think it is their husbands ' faults, If wives do fall. Say that they slack their duties.” She addressed.
As we move through the passage, we see Adriana shift her emotions of depression away from her husband and towards her naïve sister. Adriana becomes so enraged with her sister’s comments, that she refers to Luciana’s mentality as “servant like” (2.1.26). Since servants were treated as the lowest members of society, it is clear that Adriana feels as though Luciana is making a fool out of herself. Shakespeare portrays Luciana in a manner that would suggest that she is an expert on marriage, which is contradictory in itself as Luciana is not yet married. Her tone, while initially understanding and compassionate, quickly turns into one of arrogance and righteousness.
COMPARE AND CONTRAST ON THE WAY OF RECOVERY Teenage protagonists have rough and different world and it’s hard to understand them completely. “Catcher in The Rye” and “The Perks of Being Wallflower” novels give a huge place about female relationships of Holden and Charlie. Even though they have different world, they have similar attitudes to their sisters, to their dates who they don’t really like and to their female friends that helped them to overcome their traumas. First, if we consider their altitudes to their sisters, we can easily get that they really love their sisters. Holden has indifferent and careless characteristic to other people.
Contrary to belief though, this quote was a way to set his “mousetrap” and force her to be in the background of his grand scheme. The audience must draw conclusions concerning their relationship because their love is not the main focus of the play and Hamlet acting insane is an inconvenience because it is hard to decipher what was sincere or madness. Shakespeare does not seem to have a high opinion of women, while writing Hamlet, considering how Hamlet holds deep bitterness toward his mother and Ophelia for not having a backbone and allowing themselves to be pawns in the game Claudius and he are playing. Saying this, Hamlet’s behavior towards Ophelia is crude, rough, and full of anger. Despite Hamlet’s harsh treatment towards Ophelia, he really did love her, but because she was not his main focus, the
One of the characters dragged into the disarray is Ophelia, the daughter of the King’s advisor and Hamlet’s love interest. Ophelia is pulled in many different directions, and is used at the whims of the men in her life. She suffers greatly throughout the tragedy by none of her own faults. She is dragged into this conflict, yet she stays. Ophelia is a dutiful daughter, representing the "fairer sex" perfectly.
Ibsen was merciless in his quest to uncover negative sides of society: hypocrisy, manipulative behavior and use of public opinion to suppress individuals. The play is not only a picture of an innocent nineteenth century woman struggling to achieve self-definition but also a devastating portrayal of a marriage between two people who lack awareness of themselves and who have differing views of right and wrong. Torvald unquestioningly accepts society’s dicta of the husband as a jobholder and moral authority, but Nora’s attempt to conform as the submissive wife forces her into lies and deception. Both care about what people think and neither consciously considers opposing society’s morals. Consequently, the play may be considered an attack upon traditional family values which changed the way the western world viewed
A wicked person wouldn’t feel the slightest guilt for something wrong they have done, yet Lady Macbeth felt culpability that lead her to her downfall. To begin, the relationship between Lady Macbeth and Macbeth was a strong, loving, equally based relationship. She was devoted and loyal to him until her unfaithful day. After Macbeth was told the prophecies, he immediately sent a letter to his wife, calling her his dearest partner. This shows how Macbeth treats her as an equal and was truly in love with her.
The continual questioning reflects that of a grueling and in part contributes to Ophelia’s later madness. Kenneth Brannagh has said that his interpretation of “Hamlet” suggests that Hamlet is aware of either Polonius and Claudius and Hamlet’s continual repetition of “Get thee to a nunnery” emphasizes his beliefs in all women being morally corrupt. Possibly, Hamlet betrays Ophelia because he ultimately loves her. He is aware of men being “arrant knaves” and as such may be
The Macbeths’ marriage, like the couple themselves, is abnormal, particularly by the standards of its time. Yet despite their odd power dynamic, the two of them seem surprisingly attached to one another, particularly compared to other married couples in Shakespeare’s plays, in which romantic luck appears mainly during courtship and marriages tend to be troubled. Macbeth offers an exception to this rule, as Macbeth and his wife are partners in the truest sense of the word. Of course, the irony / mockery of their “happy” marriage is clear—they are united by their crimes, their mutual madness, and their mounting alienation from the rest of humanity. Their mutual ambition to fulfil the witches ' prophecy is a driving force of their relationship.
Individually the symbols offer a well-developed message; however, the multiple meanings contradict, because the different meanings mean opposite ideas. For example, Hester will forever be seen as an adulterer and a steward. These are two opposite concepts, especially in Puritan Society, because a steward helps and an adulterer sins. As the scarlet letter changes through the novel, the symbol contradicts Hester's image and her role in society. Hester is scarred with her sin and the punishment from the Puritans.
Elizabeth Proctor was true to God, her husband, and family. At the beginning of the story, she and John Proctor, her husband, were known as the best judges of character. As the play continues and the plot unfolds, she and her family became the resounding examples of their judgments. This occurs when Elizabeth finds out that her husband has been having an affair with their housekeeper, Abigail Williams. We, the readers, can infer that John had an affair because of Elizabeth’s cold, emotionless, and detached attitude.
