Beautiful women, Princesses, and love struck women. What do all these have in common? Juliet and the lady (princess) all have these descriptions in common; they share the same qualities. I believe that Juliet from Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare and the Lady from the Lady or the Tiger by Frank R. Stockton are similar and different. I think Juliet and the Lady are alike because they are very love struck.
Even though he has a feeling of guilt and remorse, the speaker decides “it would be a sin not to enjoy” all of the things he has. His indifferent tone causes the reader to contemplate their life and all of the hard workers it takes to help them get somewhere big like the speaker.

Benevolence is defined as meanings kind, compassionate, or caring. In Tony Hoagland’s, “Benevolence”, the speaker thinks longingly of a time where they are able to control their father’s drinking habit. Hoagland uses the duality of harm and affection in his poem with the topics of benevolence and abuse. The speaker seems to have mixed feelings about it, as in knowing alcoholism is a bad habit, but knowing or feeling like their father always had good intentions. There is also a gloomy and depressing undertone when you analyze the poem; speaking of their alcoholic father who abused them.

“The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” introduces an aging man’s paralyzing and disturbing outlook on life. T.S. Eliot presents Prufrock, a character who, due to extreme indecisiveness, insecurity over his appearance, and fear of socializing, develops into a stagnant character with little hope for progress; he is paralyzed by an extreme case of self-consciousness, causing him to expect the worst and question his every decision.

His insecurity is demonstrated through the weary and frantic questioning of “how should I presume?” and “should I begin?”, as he doubts his ability to socialize with others, particularly women.
He proclaims his interest in her by stating, “O, she doth teaches to burn bright! / It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night. / As a rich jewel in Ethiop’s ear / beauty too rich for earth to dear” (1.5 51-54). Romeo shows how impulsive he can really be, for he was depressed that morning and now all of a sudden he is in love again. Along with that, Romeo finds himself talking to Juliet that same night, during the very familiar balcony scene.

Yet in the number I do know but one that unassailable holds on his rank, unshaken of motion; and that I am he.” This illustrates why Caesar is arrogant because he believes
This cowardice event shows that he is not a hero. In conclusion Odysseus is not a hero because he is missing many profile traits a hero would posses. As I’ve expressed copious times Odysseus is not a hero because he is egotistical, cowardice, narcissistic, and alienated. He sacrifices his crew, is unloyal to his faithful wife, and is a
constantly [feeling] as if he is being surrounded by his enemies. (Huber and Ledbetter 254)” Confined by insecurity, loneliness, and uncertainty, he continues on his spiritual quest for true happiness.
