Heartbreak and vengeance make the perfect cocktail for any juicy story, but so does the concept of a twisted illusion of reality. Stories of passion such as, Evona Darling written by Silas House and My Ex-Husband written by Gabriel Spera, are both examples of stories that give the reader the equation of love and hate entwined together with the tainted sense of reality. House descriptively writes a story about the passion of a mother’s love whose heart has been taken away by her child’s father, who through suspicious friends got Evona’s custody stripped away from her. On the other hand, Spera creates her poem in her perspective of being married to a man that betrayed her and played his cards of deceit. Both stories were passionately written after love had partaken, but the fairy tale ends had come upon them.
Austen 's Pride and Prejudice book shows the differences and similarities of the marriage relationships in the 18th century, through the marriage relationships of Charlotte, Lydia, Jane, and Elizabeth. Jane naturally found someone to marry, her attractive beauty and accessible joyful character helped her easily attract Bingley to her. Young Lydia married Wickham, but she did not know anything about marriage yet. Elizabeth fell in love with Darcy because she realized that he is a special person and that her assumption of him was totally incorrect. On the other hand, Charlotte married Mr. Collins for the reason that she wanted to be secure.
These two evil sisters disobey their father in everything, and put on a face when he asks who loves him the most because they are simply greedy and want his land for themselves. “I am made of the self-same metal that my sister, and prize me at her worth. In my true heart I find she names my very deed of love; Only she comes too short, that I profess myself an enemy to all other joys which the most precious square of sense possesses, and find I am alone felicitate in your dear Highness' love” (Shakespeare). Here, Regan explains her true love for her father as opposed to the half-hearted love that Goneril has for him. As the two sisters fight over who loves their father more, they demonstrate to the audience that they are selfish and manipulative.
No false notes” (Ibsen 68). Unfortunately, Nora is subjected to this kind of treatment through her marriage life. Obviously, Nora is unhappy about being treated as a doll-wife especially when Trovard forces her to perform song and dances to him. She complains to Mrs. Linde about her being forced in role-action. The above treatment by her husband renders Nora helpless, she tries to regain her power, and freedom by going behind Trovald’s back and applies for a loan.
This is farther reinforced in ‘one night, in the fall, she runned away.’ This denotes her longing to run away from her terrible fate. It also brings her entrapment by her husband into light. The verb ‘runned’ shows just how illiterate the farmer was and how unjust it was at that society where illiterate men still had more power over woman and how woman were depicted as powerless and obedient to men. The contemporary
Her troubled feelings are related to the tides, the strong emotions and the anxiety. As I pointed out, there is a clear comparison between the speaker´s father and her husband. Her father was a salesman, a talker, a person in love with maps and she wants in her life someone similar. The “new loves” in the poem are related to the infidelity. In the poem Daddy by Sylvia Plath, it appears different metaphors related to the speaker´s father which describe her ambiguous relationship.
However, as the play is moving towards the end, Emilia, aware of her husband morbid plan, raises her voice and rebels against the strong patriarchal power of the Elizabethan society. At the conclusion of the play, Emilia contests her husband; she is positioned towards Desdemona and loses her modesty and obedience imposed by the Elizabethan society. As we can see Vaughan text, on page 72, “Both women are portrayed as victims of patriarchal marriage conventions”, they suffer this oppression and therefore they rebel in one way or another. Finally, in this play, we have Bianca, a courtesan who plays a secondary role in, at that time, a well-known city for the prostitution and the promiscuity. Her role in the play is reduced to few intermittent appearances, but her outbreak of jealousy in Act III, scene iv, lines - “O Cassio, whence came this?
A dramatic opening is created with “Beloved sweetheart bastard”. An oxymoron is created as “beloved” and “sweetheart” are pet names used for a lover while “bastard” is a harsh insult that would be said with the intent to hurt someone. This contradiction portrays Miss Havisham’s conflicted feelings and introduces the reader to the turmoil she experiences constantly. This idea of instability is reinforced in stanza 2. Duffy informs the reader of how Miss Havisham still parades around in her wedding dress.
It developed in her a ‘masculine protest’ and filled in her sadism and destructiveness. Her poetry reflects ‘a seductive nihilism in contemporary culture that is a barrier to the discovery of one’s full humanness – the first step towards trying to find a meaning in life. It is reflected in the nihilism of her poetry and also in her choice of suicide as an evasive measure, a dodge, from discovering her full humanness. Well, her famous poem entitled Daddy categorically depicts her relationship with her father. Even the opening lines of the poem invoke those cultural or social injunctions or prescriptions against which the conduct or behaviour of the persons in the poem is measured at both the individual and the social levels.
Firstly, her perspective seems sincere and hopeful; she believes that “justice reigns” in heaven. • The verbal approaches that Montagu uses serve as an attempt to influence both sexes to overthrow the constricting, immoral standards and hierarchies of their society –those that oppress women. Epistle from Mrs. Yonge to her Husband • Nearing the end of the poem, her hopeful tone which she uses in her attempts to persuade her addressees turns to one of bitter sarcasm. • Unable to find any remedy for the hypocrisy and injustices which plague married life, the speaker desperately addresses heaven to plea for justice. the speaker of Montagu’s poem remains ambiguous about whether justice toward women exists in any sphere, even
