Comparing what is accepted as real love to what we see in the book, we know that none of the relationships are held together by love. Tom and Daisy Buchanan show us the absence of love within the story on a surface level. It was said that Daisy had once loved Tom, but over the few years they have been married they drifted apart. Tom has had multiple affairs,
Fitzgerald and Dexter want “glittering things,” and they do not stop until they get that. There are also major differences between Fitzgerald, Gatsby, and Green. Fitzgerald married Zelda, and they were happy together for a while, but Gatsby and Green never married their loves. Gatsby had the worst outcome though as his love gets him killed. The parallels in F. Scott Fitzgerald's stories The Great Gatsby and “Winter Dreams” to his own life are very evident.
Romeo and Juliet are two star crossed lovers that both pay the ultimate price for love. Mr. Capulet is the power hungry and selfish ruler of the Capulet Family. The highly ranked and socially respected Montague family keeps the Capulets from being the highest ranked family in Verona. The attitude of Mr. Capulet has Juliet, his daughter, scared to tell him anything, much less so about her marriage to Romeo, a Montague. Juliet’s relationship with her dad is slim to none and has Mr. Capulet guessing what she is like and he makes all decisions for her without even knowing what's going on in her life.
That is another way I start to feel bad for T-ray. He went into a marriage being the only person who was willing to give love. If Deborah loved T-ray this could of been a whole different story. I would she made a big mistake going into a marriage without any love. There were plenty of other options.
In the beginning, he was really rude to Celie & did not appreciate her much, he even criticized her. The only person he seemed to love was Shug Avery. He has changed through out the story because at the end he realized how much of a good friend Celie is. Shug Avery is a famous singer who became very ill. She was a static character because she has not changed through out the story. The only thing that has changed about her was the way she acted towards Celie.
The whining of girls.”. I read this and was immediately disgusted. I read the full article and confirmed my disgust. That he would have the audacity to publish even a single paragraph of it is unsettling, but in conjunction with the supposedly pro-women image he’s now trying to cultivate with The Unmade Bed it’s downright disturbing. I’m aware that we never stop learning, there’s always room for betterment upon skewed viewpoints, and while it’s nice Marche has apparently improved, I still believe that he hasn’t fully moved past his misogyny.
Another example is the letter addressed to the Crane family, “Didn’t you ever see an idiot child before? Some people just shouldn’t have children should they”? (4) This shows that she is envious of the family because they provide each other with company and they love each other, “ most infatuated young parents she had ever known”. Whereas Miss Strangeworth lives all alone. In short, these letters have proved that since she is jealous of her victims she tries to disrupt their way of living so she can feel superior.
But at the end of the novel, we see that he is a kind man that has been shut up his entire life and doesn’t like being in the spotlight (both literally and metaphorically). Furthermore, many people in Maycomb are extremely classist and believe that anyone that is below them shouldn’t be seen with the common folk. Aunt Alexandra is a character that shows this; “She had said Indeed Not, but this time she would give her reasons: ‘But I want to play with Walter, Aunty, why can’t I?’ She took off her glasses and stared at me. ‘I’ll tell you why,’ she said. ‘Because—he—is¬—trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
Even with a humble and understanding husband who would go above and beyond to make her happy she is still unhappy. Blessed with a beautiful physical beauty, but not the affluent lifestyle that she yearns for, which lead her to continuously seek for what she cannot posses. Her greed for a lavish lifestyle stop her from enjoying her basic life and to constantly judging what she posses ''She suffered from the poorness of her house, from its mean walls, worn chairs, and ugly curtains. All these things, of which other women of her class would not even have been aware, tormented and insulted her'' (Maupassant 7). Mathilde always imagined herself in a high social position with wonderful jewels and expensive clothing instead she have to wear simple clothing.
In this story and in our world we see people all the time teasing others, making them hate who they are on the inside and especially the outside. Even a person who didn't have any issues with themselve can be convinced to feel other wise. In the text we see Georgina battling this issue with her husband...someone who should love and accept her; “Still, whenever she dared to look into the mirror, there she beheld herself pale as a white rose and with the crimson birthmark stamped upon her cheek. Not even Aylmer now hated it so much as she.”(Hawthorne, 364). Just like the people in this world the characters in this story didn't understand that you shouldn't mess with what nature gave you;”“It was the fatal flaw of humanity which Nature, in one shape or another, stamps ineffaceable on all her productions, either to imply that they are temporary and finite, or that their perfection must be
