Chillingworth shows forgiveness when he tells Hester that he wronged her first, and that the scale between them hangs fairly even.

Second of all, when her husband Patrick told Mary that he will leave her,even though she is a good wife it sounded really “cold” and was careless. In the story he says “I’ve got something to tell you,” and also says “Go on, sit down” this to me sounds a bit harsh considering he didn’t say “please” or “may”. All of these variables : her shock at the news, the pregnancy she is going through and rough news, made her think of a life in ruin, which consequently lead her to a sudden frenzy. The third reason why Mary is a sane individual is because she was smart enough to plan a positive order of events to cover up her murder. For example, in the story it states “It was extraordinary, now, how clear her mind became all of a sudden,” and also “She began thinking very fast.” This explains how she was not insane and the murder was a temporary weakening in her judgement.
It was a mix of Anger, Love and Pain for Richard. He would have loved to see his Daughter but he was the one causing her pain. His initial denial of not knowing Mary did not hold for long as his emotions got the better of him. He narrated a story that made Mary understand that her life was simply a twist of many shady
Medea, a play by Euripides, centres around a woman named Medea who is wronged by her husband, Jason, when he marries another woman and leaves Medea. The popular opinion involving this play is that Jason is a horrible person, and he was in the wrong for causing Medea all of her pain. It is important to look at this play from both sides, however, and Jason’s argument is compelling enough to show that he was not as horrible of a person for what he had done and that the choices he had made were for the benefit of his family, despite breaking his vows. Medea is the real villain of this play, and Jason is one of her many victims. He consistently speaks about his desire to protect his family and talks of reasoning with the royal family so Medea is
Lady Macbeth’s signs of guilt first surface in Act 3 Scene 2, where her sanity begins to deteriorate. Thinking out loud she says, “Nought’s had, all’s spent, where our desire is got without content.” All the trouble they went through to get what they wanted was a waste because it cost them their peace of mind. Fear and anxiety are taking over Lady Macbeth to the point of bringing out the humility from deep within her as she refers to her husband as “my lord.” Earlier she spoke at Macbeth and challenged his manliness. Thriving in confidence and power she saw him as nothing but a tool to get what she wants, but now that she’s seen a little blood and had a few nightmares, it has literally brought out the respect in her. She also asks him, “What’s to be done” which forces the audience to wonder where “mastermind Lady Macbeth” has gone!

I think that things have changed because Bryce has changed his feelings towards Juliana completely since the beginning of the story because he now likes Juli, feeling the need to defend her and her family, and feels very guilty about the things he has done to her. One point that proves that Bryce has changed his feelings towards Juli is that he now likes her. Proof of this is on pages 6 and 123. On page 6, Bryce says, “I still has enough sense at age seven and a half to know that Juli Baker was dangerous.” This shows that Bryce wanted nothing to do with Juli and he wants to avoid her. But on page 123, it says, “I found myself looking at her in class.
At the point when George shoots Lennie it demonstrates that he cared for Lennie and realized that in the event that he let the others discover Lennie they would torment him. Steinbeck demonstrates that, in Lennie 's situation, individuals with dysfunctional behaviors were dealt with as sub-par and misjudged with little help in their circumstances.

In the book, the writer utilized words that were not proper English, for example, ain 't and different illustrations "You never oughta drink water when it ain 't running, Lennie,". John
