For instance, in Sonnet 130 lines 1-2 Shakespeare states "My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun; Coral is far more red than her lips' red". Therefore, he is boldly declaring that his mistress eyes are nothing extraordinary in comparison to the sun, which shines so brightly. While her lips are an unappealing shade of red. Similarly, lines 3-10 continue on in the same manner with the author proudly admitting that he is aware of his mistress faults, yet he still desires her. Likewise, in the lines 1-2 in the "Beauty in Ugly" the author states "She's so big hearted, But not so remarkable".
HEDDA. Exactly the girl with the irritating hair that she was always showing off. An old flame of yours I’ve been told. (Act-I, 24) Hedda sees Mrs. Elvsted’s hair as foolish and threatening because it represents both her femininity and her power over Lovborg, the only man that Hedda may have had feelings for. When Hedda finally enters the play, her lack of femininity is emphasized: her eyes which looks like steel-grey; cold, clear and calm are the antithesis of a feminine or womanly woman, such as Mrs. Elvsted’s for instance, whose eyes are "light blue, large, round and slightly prominent, with a startled, questioning expression" and hair is "remarkably fair, almost silver-gilt, and exceptionally thick and wavy" (Act-I, 10).

She states that she “won’t be looked at in this merciless glare” (Williams, 11) and as she starts getting more comfortable at the Kowalski’s, she puts a paper lantern over the lightbulb to soften the light. The subdued glow allows her to play the role of a virtuous and coquettish ingénue while hiding her true age and her sordid past. Moreover, Blanche is of the opinion that “a woman’s charm is fifty percent illusion” (Williams, 41), which might explain why she is so attached to the idea of purity, considering her promiscuous past (which was revealed when in Scene 7, Stanley confronted Blanche about her work as a prostitute in Laurel). This continues throughout the play until, in Scene 9, Mitch says “I’ve never had a real good look at you” (Williams, 144) to Blanche and tears the lantern off the light bulb putting her in full exposure in terms of her looks and her true personality. The Southern belle defends herself saying that she prefers magic over reality, so she tells people “what ought to be truth” (Williams,

Chopin parallels Adelé Ratignolle to an angel with grace and beauty, regardless of her growing a little stout. Adelé also has long and voluptuous golden hair that “comb nor confing pin could restrain” (11).
He chastises her for eating sweet treats, for leaving him on his own while she worked and for dancing too wildly during her rehearsal of the tarantella. Nora flatters him and lies to him when trying to persuade him to employ Kristina and demeans herself in the hope that he’ll show mercy to Krogstad, “your squirrel will scamper about and do all her tricks, if youll be nice and do what she asks.” Torvald labels her “irresponsible” and refuses to be made a “laughing stock” by listening to his wife.

Susanna.”
