To be specific, Jekyll states the following, “Many a man would have even blazoned such irregularities as I was guilty of; but from the high views that I had set before me, I regarded and hid them with an almost morbid sense of shame” (Stevenson 55). Here, Jekyll is stating that he represses his private desires so much and wants the irregularities in life so badly that he finally faces a challenge, whether to keep his private figure hidden or to reveal it to society and subsequently be judged by society. He now has to make a life changing decision, if he continues to enjoy his pleasures secretly, he will have it on his conscience daily and be tormented by the guilt; if he confesses them, he will no longer have the guilt on his conscience, but he will also be judge harshly by society. Mary Shelly also uses her protagonist, Victor Frankenstein, in way that empsizes
Because of the actions and choices Tino makes the consequences have positive and negative effects on Paul. First and foremost, Edward Bloor says, “…they put us in the vandalism jail.” “My stomach suddenly knotted.” (Bloor107). This has a negative effect on Paul in as much as he feels as though Tino is going to blame him. Next Paul said, “He wouldn’t talk to me, or even look at me.” (Bloor206). Like the first quote, Tino’s actions have a negative defect on Paul seeing that Paul thinks that Tino blames him and thinks that he, Paul, is like his brother Erik.
Moreover, the protagonists, Heathcliff and Catherine, are happy when they do not follow the conventions of the society ,however, they were oppressed when they follow them. The scene when Heathcliff comes back proves that Catherine’s happiness is only apparent. Her Transformation
In the movie The Talented Mr. Ripley, Tom Ripley the main character as the predominant desire of reaching a higher social class. Tom does not want to be himself because he kills Greenleaf in “self-defense” because of his infatuation with him. Ripley feels alienated and lonely and is bored with his own life. Tom’s desire is concentrated on that which he cannot be within the identity of Tom Ripley: cultured, wealthy, and socially accepted, though he is anything but. Anthony Minghella uses symbolism to probe in the subconscious of the complex characters in his 1999 film, the Talented Mr. Ripley.
The audience sympathise with King Lear’s redemption. Throughout the play, he gets a chance at redemption to make up for his mistake of having “thy truth being the dower:” for his daughter. He realises the folly of his actions and redeems himself stating “I am a very foolish fond old man”. This demonstrates King Lear's change in character as he learns that he is not as powerful as thinks he was and starts to become more humble. There is a lure of sympathy for King Lear because a story of redemption inspires people and catches their imagination, that anything is possible.
After he humiliated the daughter of his benefactor, Miranda said the words below: "When thou didst not, savage, Know thine own meaning... I endowed thy purposes With words that made them known. But thy vile race, Though thou didst learn, had that in't which good natures Could not abide to be with..." So the versatility of soul is easy to
Pretty, isn’t it?” This helps acknowledge his attraction to Phyllis and he is aware of the mistake he has made.

Unlike the Lang’s character, he was aware about his crimes and did them with pleasure. If he had not told his wife terrified by his acting about it, perhaps, he would have committed more.

People will usually agree that it is all fun and games when the cheater in a relationship is themselves. It seems to be even more of a euphoria when they are the ones consensually being used to cheat. Particularly when whomever a cheater is cheating with is made to feel as if they possess some celestial sexual gift, unprecedented to the cheater. A satisfaction the cheater’s spouse seemingly failed to give, and a satisfaction so powerful that it would cause a cheater to continually indulge the obvious wrong of infidelity. In other words, cheating is somewhat acceptable in modern society, until, an individual becomes the one being cheated on, until their sex is no longer satisfying to their spouse, or even until they are the ones being dealt
It is also very informative for disclosure of the characters. Susan’s speech sounds natural and relaxed, while Tom speaks ironically, deliberately emphasizing and obviously exaggerating the gap in their social positions (“Who else do you know that is famous, Susan?”, “I can brag a lot when I get back down to South Carolina”). The irony in this case demonstrates the reader Tom’s internal tension. Actually, further in the text the reader learns that he “felt some shame” and the reason for this is that he was feeling “the most wonderful stirring of lust” for
