COMPARE AND CONTRAST ON THE WAY OF RECOVERY Teenage protagonists have rough and different world and it’s hard to understand them completely. “Catcher in The Rye” and “The Perks of Being Wallflower” novels give a huge place about female relationships of Holden and Charlie. Even though they have different world, they have similar attitudes to their sisters, to their dates who they don’t really like and to their female friends that helped them to overcome their traumas. First, if we consider their altitudes to their sisters, we can easily get that they really love their sisters. Holden has indifferent and careless characteristic to other people.
and Miss Tilney develop with good intentions, yet her immaturity change the dynamics to become more of a doting relationship. In both instances when Catherine meets the Tilneys for the first time, she is polite and conversational, but Catherine also “was desirous of being acquainted with [Miss Tilney]” (Austen 50). In Catherine’s meeting of the Tilneys, she possesses an element of her immaturity, as her emotions and attention scatter back and forth between the Tilneys and the Thorpes. Her attachments to both women, Isabella Thorpe and Miss Tilney, display Catherine’s childlike admiration and naive adoration. In the argument of the argument of Waldo Glock, he refers Catherine to have an “impressionable mind occasionally interpret[ing] scenes at Bath in the light of her reading of Gothic romance" (Glock 33).
For example when King Claudius says “Oh, for two special reasons...The queen his mother lives almost by his looks, and for myself-- my virtue or my plague, be it either which.” (IV,vii,1,11-13). In this quote he is speaking to Laertes about getting rid of both their problems which is Hamlet and Claudius saying one of the reasons that he did not take criminal action against Hamlet is because Gertrude loves him and is devoted to him” Another example is when Rosencrantz and Guildenstern pretends to be Hamlet’s friends but are actually working for King Claudius. In Act ll Scene ii Lines 258 Rosencrantz says “Visiting you, my lord. There’s no other occasion.” In those lines Rosencrantz lies to Hamlet saying that he and Guildenstern is only there to see him but in all actuality they are there to help King Claudius figure out why Hamlet has gone crazy. The final example of the theme appearance vs reality in Hamlet is in Act ll, Scene i, Line 1 Polonius says “Give him this money and these notes, Reynaldo.” It seems that Polonius is giving his servant gifts and letters from him and his family to deliver to Laertes but he is also sending his servant to spy on Laertes to see if he is actually doing what he said he was which is studying
„I desire the company of a man who could sympathize with me; whose eyes would reply to mine. You may deem me romantic, my dear sister, but I bitterly feel the want of a friend” (Shelley 163-164). This is the wish of the scientist Robert Walton whose letters start Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein. Unlike the first thoughts coming to mind when hearing the title, friendship is one of the main topics in the story and the wish Walton expresses in the beginning stands for the desires of all the main characters. Not only Walton feels to be in need of companionship, the central character Victor Frankenstein does so too and even the Creature he brings into being expresses its strong wish to belong to someone.
Both pieces present relationships, but the different contexts due to the time difference between the authors, however a theme they share is of unrequited love as they both posses an ultimate rejection of the relationship. The style with which the authors write include lots of description and they both use the third person perspective, however the impression of the relationship to the reader, the characters, and the writers’ choices of language in the two pieces is different. Angela Carter wrote The Magic Toyshop in 1967 and is a known feminist, her book is used to describe Melanie’s journey growing up in this period and becoming award of herself and her sexuality something Elizabeth Gaskell in 1855 was not exploring with her book though she did write it as a social novel to create an understating of the problems faced to different members of society at the time. The extract from The Magic Toyshop focuses on Melanie’s feelings towards Finn, she feels impatient for him to kiss her repeating ‘Oh, get it over with, get it over with,’ to herself. She is apprehensive of the fact he is going to make a move and the reader is hooked in by knowing ‘he was going to kiss her or try to kiss her’.
Therefore, it is not surprising that many fairy tales from all over the world and written at different points in history, all have some features in common, among which, a moral lesson usually pointing to how the main character 's virtues are enough to grant him/her a joyful life. At first glance, "Catskin" does not seem to differ from this universal pattern. Initially, the protagonist - Catskin - "[Because] the old cook is very cruel to her […] leads a sad life" (Jacobs 166). Nevertheless, she endures the debasement constantly perpetrated by the cook without ever fighting back thus manifesting an interminable patience. Notably, when, before every dance, the wicked chef dashes and breaks three objects on her body, "She only briskly shakes her ears, and says nothing," (Jacobs 167) displaying admirable fortitude.
89-92). She also becomes emotionally unstable in the wake of Odysseus’ disappearance, becoming easily swayed by her son’s words and reaching brief moments of clarity, before regressing back to “weeping/ for Odysseus, her husband”... when she mount[s] to her room again” (1. 410-412). But despite Penelope’s fragile state, she is still seen as being preferable over Kalypso due to the belief that it was good for women to depend on men. The quotes illustrate the clear divide
Readers have learned to expect this behaviour from those with hidden virtue as traditionally, this is how romance novel protagonists are portrayed: dangerous, brooding, etc. however in Heathcliff’s case, he does not reform to be a purely good person, instead his malevolence proves to be a long-lasting trait that persists. Both Heathcliff and Catherine have counterparts in the Linton siblings, their counterparts being the perfect opposite of the other: Edgar is Heathcliff’s counterpart being raised as the perfect gentleman, well mannered and with civilised values but while these traits get Catherine to marry him over Heathcliff, they are ultimately useless and weak. Isabella Linton, Catherine’s counterpart and Edgar Linton’s sister is cultured and much more civilised than Catherine who is wilder and lively, occasionally even cruel. In the first 16 Chapters, we see both characters personality develop: Heathcliff’s fluctuating between romantic and cruel and Catherine slowly going from lively to cold and unable to choose, leading to her health continuously declining until she passes
The power of words is often unrecognized. Think about it. You are very fortunate to have the ability to create. Words you create can construct greater ideas to express yourself. They can also be the foundation of creating emotions through songs, poetry, stories and even basic sentences.
In every case, Dickens suggests that although the process of sacrificing oneself is painful, one must do so in order to gain strength and happiness. For the French, they were able to obtain a peaceful society that they desired. Dr. Manette receives his daughter’s love and gains power in this new society that he never had before. Darnay earned Lucie’s heart in marriage and is working to make his own money like he
