But at the root of it all is the relationship between Macbeth and his Lady, whose lack of knowledge and faith in themselves drives them toward insanity and a horrific fate. Their relationship does not represent nature, Shakespeare grossly exaggerated his masculinity towards women. Many of Shakespeare 's characters in Macbeth are so confused that it almost makes you think that he was not certain of anything. He had troubled relationships with women, his wife, for instance, definitely had a great impact on his writing. Yet, Macbeth is a play about
Not only the witches, but also his wife easily manipulate Macbeth as she attacks his manhood in order to provoke him to act on his desires. Macbeth’s pride allowed his wife to use his ambition as leverage calling him a ‘coward’, ‘lesser than a man’. Macbeth was unable to withstand the belittlement and his masculinity mocked. Previously, Macbeths desire to obtain the
For example, John Proctor was willing to sacrifice his good name to protect his wife. He is a husband and a father, although he made mistakes, his family is very dear. He is a person who stores moral convictions and only cares for the safety of his family and individual welfare. In addition, John Proctor's decision to tell the court about his business ironically shows his kindness. He no longer continued his relationship with Abigail, who privately terminated his sins.
These people would be wrong because towards the end of Act IV, John died for his wife, and that is being very loyal. For example, in The Crucible John is seen as loyal because he loves his wife, and is willing to do anything to get rid of Abigail, and break up the relationship between John and Abigail. Proctor says, “...” This makes John loyal because obviously he cares about his marriage, and he does not want some little girl ruining that.

John Proctor is also loyal because he died for the love of his wife.

Mrs. Walker’s abuse of her husband is only one facet of her twisted psyche. Washington Irving’s tale, “The Devil and Tom Walker,” satirically criticizes the people of 1720s Boston for their greed through characters such as Mrs. Walker. Because her motivation is control, Mrs. Walker’s psychological state is abusive and her actions result in her death. Mrs. Walker’s violent tendencies often victimize Tom and expose her as an abusive character. Irving writes (2010), “Her voice was often heard in wordy warfare with her husband; and his face sometimes showed signs that their conflicts were not confined to words.” (p. 230).
Browning portrays the narrator as mentally unstable, an explanation for the abrupt killing of Porphyria. However, the murder was likely motivated by the narrator feeling threatened as a male within the power structure. A clear shift within the structure occurs when Porphyria sits down with her lover and speaks of her love for him. At this point, the Victorian gender norms are well-represented, and Porphyria’s lover takes advantage of this. The first conscious action of the narrator was his murder of Porphyria, after he realizes his dominance and states Porphyria “was mine, mine, fair / Perfectly pure and good” (Browning ).
Konner Mattison Professor Kremer Political Ideologies 2270 5 December 2016 Nietzsche: Difference Between Men and Women In Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil, he expresses his opinion on the difference between men and women.
