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. When he realizes he loves Ellen and confesses his love to her and his desire to marry her instead of May, it is too late.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
King Lear forced them to tell him how much they love him so that he could divide up the kingdom for them. 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
Brutus would rather tell Portia about the conspiracy, than to withhold secrets to his wife. This allows the reader to infer that his love for Portia is not of that time in 44 B.C where most Romans with a few exceptions treated their wives as possessions. Brutus did not act upon this, for he was not only an honorable Roman but a loving husband as well. The fact that Brutus allowed Portia to talk to him the way she did is only one supportive reason to claim he truly loved her. Another would be when Brutus says “Render me worthy of this noble wife!”
Idealistic Brutus misplaces his trust on his army and the conspirators. Manipulated, Brutus joins into the conspiracy without knowing the hidden intentions. By the time conspirators had brief meeting at Brutus’s house before the plan, Brutus addresses that “they are all welcome” (2.1.97) and shakes hands with the conspirators without any doubt. He misplaces his trust on the conspirators thinking that everyone share same purpose and intention. After the death of Caesar and Antony’s funeral speech, Brutus and Cassius run away from Rome and set up a camp where they can fight against the army of Antony.
One famous quote by David Nicholls is, “If you have to keep a secret it's because you shouldn't be doing it in the first place.” What this really means, is if something you’re doing is kept a secret, it’s probably at best looked down upon, and at worst, thrown in jail or killed. Even though secrets may seem mysterious and exciting at first, the consequences can have a long lasting negative effect. In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the secret of the love between the two characters was ultimately the reason they died a sad and untimely death. Today, secrets can still create dangerous consequences and completely change one’s life as can be seen in the article, “‘Open Secret’:
Brutus and Antony speak in Caesar's funeral, they use ethos, pathos, and logos to get their point across. With the use of the pathos, logos, and ethos Brutus gets the attention of the commoners. He asks the commoners if what he is going to say is going to offend them, if it does he asks of them to leave there and they all tell Brutus no. Antony speaks before Brutus and gets his point across but fails at his point and just gets the crowd thinking. Brutus than uses his speech techniques to win over the commoner’s ears to listen to him.
“Behind every great man is a great woman.” Such a statement is very well-known nowadays since it is a common phrase used to promote the strength of women. Quite literally, the phrase means that men tend achieve greatness due to the strength that the woman who supports them has. However, the concept of women being strong has history that far extends that statement. For example, strong female characters are present in William Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar.
