This reflects that the woman’s reputation is much more important than a man’s reputation in Victorian England. Like in the other novel “Tess of the d’Urbervilles”, the reputation of a woman is easily tainted and cannot be hidden; women cannot start their life over as if nothing has happened. Henchard is worried about Lucetta more than he is worried about himself. In addition, Lucetta seems as a romantic person that gets excited about the prospects of love without thinking about the relationship itself. When Lucetta waits to meet Henchard and ran into Farfrae, she quickly agrees to start a love relationship with Farfrae despite that she did not really know him.

In her review of the book for the New Yorker, she writes “’Gone Girl’ is as much about the near impossibility of being a good husband as it is about the anguish of being a good wife” (37). This statement shows that Elif would likely be very appreciative of Nick for how he chose to stay with Amy for the good his family and child. Many readers and reviewers of the book will simply take its message as feministic or antifeminist, but Elif recognizes that the book also has a lot to say about the situations of men in regards to selfishness and sacrifices. She writes, “Where a more simplistic narrative would posit that every loss for women is a gain for men, Flynn shows again and again that nobody is a winner – everyone is a dupe”.
In her attempt to convince her husband to take this prophecy into his own hands, she persuades that “[his] nature [is] too full [of] the milk of human kindness”, insinuating his character (Shakespeare 1.4.14–16). The prophecy given by the witches have taken Lady Macbeth by this point, sparking her need for more power, her ruthlessness in getting to where she wills to be. Since she is a woman, it is not expected of her to be in this much power over the man in her life. She is willed to be the inferior one, especially during this time period in Scotland, so this strive for power that she feels is atypical for the women of her time. In this way, she even announces that she will give up the characteristics of her being a woman, insisting any deity “come to [her] breast, [taking her] milk for gall”, calling for spirits to make her into the
Furthermore, Mr. Rochester’s passion draws insecurity for thinking about the mad woman he keeps hidden away, yet Brontё implies Jane being the shining light to a new passion. Jane provides Mr. Rochester with the security of a well balanced future as his passion conflicts “the oath shall be kept” (Brontё 296). Nevertheless, Brontё illustrates how Mr. Rochester’s passion transfers from the embarrassment of Bertha to the proclamation of devotion to Jane. The passion for Bertha differentiates that for Jane, as Mr. Rochester hides Bertha from the public, but he flaunts his infatuation with Jane. Renewal of Mr. Rochester’s passion extracts from Brontё metaphorically “depicts Jane throwing the waters of baptism-- spiritual rebirth-- upon Rochester” (Lamonaca 4).

There are multiple examples of this; one were he tells Alexandra that he prefers “Southern womanhood as much as anybody, but not for preserving polite fiction at the expense of human life” (page 196; To Kill a Mockingbird). Calling Southern womanhood a "polite fiction," tells us that Atticus likes woman but not their make believe idea of how women should be, however people pretend to believe in it to make life run smoother; by diminishing the possibilities of having more then one type of people
In the text it quotes that “Lady Macbeth has a desire for power into desire for love and freedom outside of her marriage and the confines of her father -in-law’s household, and she is willing to kill for it” (Thomas 83).

Juliet would not be scolded if Capulet did not care. Capulet was scolding Juliet because he was concerned for her, concerned that she still could not get married at that age. Instead of marrying a much worthy man, Paris, Juliet wants to marry for love, which was considered foolish at that time. Capulet’s concerns was probably put altogether which resulted in anger.

Collin’s. He describes how blinded he is by such strong compassion for the woman and is solely acting on emotion. In his proposal, he narrows his focus on the benefits of marriage as he states that his reputation would shield hers and that although she could draw him towards any exposure and disgrace, she could also lead him towards “any good and every good” because that is how much her presence impacts him on a more personal level. Unlike how Mr. Collins was encouraged by Lady Catherine de Bourgh’s desire for him to marry, Bradley Headstone seems to act only by his emotions and by his perception of how strong a love he holds for this woman that he is addressing. When he says “if you saw me at my work, able to do it well and respected in it, you might even come to take a sort of pride in me…” he presents himself as strong-willed, stable, and someone of good reputation.
