Furthermore she generates the feeling of jealousy in him by being out with Beaufort, although he is not in the position to have those feelings. Additionally he has a strong urge to protect her and even argues against the opinions of her family. Only when he realizes, that a divorce would possibly cause harm for her, he stops encouraging the idea. Newland's fascination of Ellen might be produced by his aversion of society and because Ellen is and behaves contrary to society, he thinks that they will be perfect for each other. She is the reason for his conflicting desires and his urge to speed up the engagement process.
Thou shalt not bear false witness. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.”(Act 2, p.173). John forgets one very important commandment, one should not commit adultery. John Proctor does not go to church because of his shame, he knows he made a mistake, but doesn’t know how to fix it within himself. He loves Elizabeth, but he got on the wrong at one point in his
Addie Bundren is going to die?” to make him accept the fact that their mother will not live for much longer (Faulkner 40). Darl is seen as being atypical because he does not mourn, or pretend to mourn, as the rest of his family does. His words may come off as being a sadistic joke in light of his mother’s ill health, but he actually wishes to tell Jewel here that the situation will not change. Darl’s cognizance of Addie’s death when he is not near her is a sign of his attachment to Addie. He cares for his mother and for his brother.
Would a woman not want to protect her husband from hanging? She knew not of John’s confession and therefore thought that if she told the court what had actually happened he would be sentenced to hang. What good would he do dead? The two of them have two kids together, the boys deserve and need a father, Elizabeth would not be able to raise them on her own and take care of their land at the same time. So she told a very reasonable lie to protect her husband who she had vowed loyalty to, and to help her kid’s lives.If John had not engaged in romantic events with Abigail why would he ruin his good name?
Knowing she is breaking his trust, she still intends to keep intact John’s expectations of her as the obedient wife. “There comes John, and I must put this away, -- he hates to have me write a word” (Gilman 4). Later she implies that her husband hates to have her write a word. Perhaps John was not comfortable with his wife working because women are not meant to work. This then develops an outward profile of marriage that serves John’s logical perceptions of her as a wife and what she should be.
The reason he doesn’t tell his mom about the affair is because he wants his father to like him in part and in part because maybe he does not want to see his family split and to see his mom suffer. From what the writer tells us we are able to see that the mom is aware of the affair but maybe she is too scare to say anything fearing that it would destroy their
In my opinion, I really think that it takes a lot of courage and comprehension to actually consider forgiving someone when they broke their trust with you. I actually would not be an easily forgiven person, it takes me time to actually get over things that disappoint me. To see how Elizabeth is really making an effort to save their marriage tells how good of a person she is. With this in mind, she lied for her husband in court, “My husband-- is a goodly man, sir.”(pg.223). Not wanting to speak about her husband cheating on her was a big decision because she did not want his name to be
However, this is inaccurate because he avoids Abigail and risks everything for his wife. Elizabeth was taken by the court because she was accused for being a witch, but John knows she is a good women and fights for her. Elizabeth is worth the trouble of going to the court and defying the government. It is honorable for a husband to protect his wife after all they are family. John is talking to the court and tell the court a secret that no one knows about, John’s reputation is on the line.
I feel like a parent should not tell their child who to date. Maybe who not too. Parents have the right to share their opinion especially when that relationship they are seeing is bad for their child. I feel like you shouldn’t date someone your family already disapproves of, because even if you hope that eventually they will approve of him/her they probably won’t you will just have lingering parents disapproval. Although it is that childs achievement to learn from the mistakes they have had.
She knows that it is her job to love him as a father and a king, but she was unable to show how much she loves him. Cordelia was the daughter that loved him the most but did not want to flatter her father. This is important because I feel as if this starts the conflict of the story and gives
