Darcy. Through Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy’s prejudicial personalities, they experience a change in heart for the other person by realizing their own flaws. Additionally, the different social classes between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy greatly contribute to their relationship; Elizabeth is often discriminated for her association with Mr. Darcy, and as a result, she becomes aware of how much she loves Mr. Darcy due to her defensive reactions to offensive comments. Lastly, Elizabeth’s stubborn attitude to challenge the specific behavior of women during the time only attracts Mr. Darcy to her even more; this factor essentially challenges and changes his own character. Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is an example of a classic love story showing how love can overcome all boundaries between any two people.
The Emalia-Desdemona relationship is an interesting and complicated one. At first glance, it might seem that Emalia serves as the jaded foil to Desdemona’s innocent naivety about love. However, a closer, sympathetic look at Emalia shows she has plenty of reasons to be as hardened as she has become. The role of Iago’s wife can’t be an easy one, and he is usually too concerned with revenge to pay much attention to her. He’s arguably one of the cruelest Shakespearean villains, and Emalia is just trying to survive unscathed.

He that’s coming Must be provided for; and you shall put this night’s great business into my dispatch,” (Macbeth 1.5. 58-60). This proves how the gender roles are reversed as the wives are usually portrayed as caring and timid when it comes to making difficult decisions especially in cases like
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
Ambition is a very strong trait to have, whether you use it for good or for evil. Throughout the play of Macbeth, power and ambition are extremely evident. The dark ambition shown in the play can drive some characters to do some hysterical things. Lady Macbeth is quite a dynamic character in the play. In the time of tragedy, an individual’s personality can easily change; this can be extremely dangerous if someone loses their self awareness, as seen by Lady Macbeth’s break down and suicide.
When Macbeth was contemplating on why Lady Macbeth didn’t commit the murder she comes up with the excuse that Duncan looks like her father. After Lady Macbeth finds out that Duncan is murdered she is extremely joyous. However as Macbeth is mentally traumatised from the event she doesn’t get an opportunity to express her happiness. This is where Shakespeare begins to split the relationship between the two characters and the distance between them gradually increases. This split in the relationship is what starts the major turn of events in the character development as we see the psychological decline of both of the characters take place.
