Yet where said danger is directed changes due to context. During the Castle of Otranto the women of the book are constantly under threat at the hands of the malevolent Manfred. The women are constantly targeted and this is seen through Manfred’s desire for Isabella - his late son’s betrothed and his disregard for his wife - Hippolita. Hippolita, especially is characterized as weak, feeble and hysterical. She unswervingly bows to the will of her tyrannical husband “Hippolita needed little persuasions to bend her to his pleasure (pg 89)."
Where as Jane, like any Victorian woman, consistently conceals her passion for the expectations of the time period, Mr. Rochester flourishes his ego with the exposure of his passion. Moreover, Brontё displays how Mr. Rochester begins to grasp his role as a male in the Victorian Era when he learns to free his expression of his passion and devotion. Mr. Rochester wishes for the promise by Jane “‘say nothing about it’” (Brontё 179). Evidently, Brontё indicates Mr. Rochester’s fear of being exposed for the passion he senses from someone like the past, beautiful Bertha. 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.
When Mrs. Reilly tried to tell Ignatius to see the brighter side of the situation, he savagely replied, “Look up? Who has been sowing that unnatural garbage into your mind?” (59). This quote perfectly exemplifies how Ignatius is constantly rude to people’s faces and behind their backs. Mr. Robichaux, Mrs. Reilly’s prospective husband, explains to her that Ignatius’s appearance and behaviors are dragging her down with him by saying, “That son of yours is gonna put you in your grave” (265). These quotes and many others throughout the novel clearly show how disrespectful and how much of a slob Ignatius
In Romeo and Juliet, the two households were the Capulets and the Montagues. These two families were well known for their quarrels and public riots as seen when the Prince exclaims, “Three civil brawls, bred of an airy word, By thee, old Capulet, and Montague” (1.5.80-81). Remarkably, Romeo and Juliet were able to see past these differences and fall in love; however in order to be secretive, they required the assistance of a dependable parental figure. Friar Laurence, who was neither Capulet or Montague, fit this role. Wanting to end the feud, the Friar frequently helped the couple stay together as seen when he married them and later on set out a plan for their eternal love away from Verona.
“Jealousy is always born with love, but does not always die with it” (Rochefoucauld). Love can be argued to be the one of the main causes of jealousy. In The Crucible, the main conflict of the story was based on envy of Elizabeth`s relationship with John Proctor. Abigail Williams’s adjective in the story was to exclude Elizabeth so she could be with John. The Salem witch hunt was the solution for Abigail plan to execute Elizabeth.
Here the use of the words “had to” shows that she has been oppressed to an extent where she does not see any other solutions than quitting her job even though it would probably have consequences for her. Later on in the passage, she says: “When I heard Mrs. Cullinan scream, ‘Mary!’ I picked up the casserole and two of the green glass cup in readiness”. In this sentence, the reader is able to sense how Mrs. Cullinan is deliberately calling the author Mary while the use of the quotation and exclamation point indicates that the author wants to emphasize that it is this specific action which Marguerite feels offended by. The word “readiness” also implies that Marguerite has been planning to drop the glasses and does so deliberately well-knowing the consequences as it is Mrs. Cullinan’s “favorite piece”. Looking back at the situation, Marguerite says that “I could never absolutely describe to Bailey what happened next, because
She’s been writing short stories, thrillers, and juvenile tales since 1851.She didn’t start using her real name until she was ready to commit to her writing. Although she is most famous for her novel “Little Women” she wrote other books. Some of these books are “Hospital Sketches”, “Atlantic Monthly”, and “lady’s Companion”. Most of her books and short stories ideas were from her family life. From 1850 to 1862 Louisa worked as a domestic servant and a teacher.
In Act 2, scene 1, lines 252-255 Iago explains, “Now, for want of these required conveniences, her delicate tenderness will find it-self abused, begin to heave gorge, disrelish and abhor the Moor.” From the beginning of the play, readers know that Iago hates Othello because he believed it was unfair that someone who was not as experienced in war was promoted as lieutenant, instead of him. Iago was plotting to get Othello to believe that his wife was a strumpet. He knew that this would anger and sadden Othello but he wanted to carry it out anyways, all while still making sure the Moor thought Iago was being loyal to
In the story, their choices affect Paul by causing him to have low self esteem, fearing his brother and feeling isolated. A choice made by Paul’s mom drops Paul’s confidence very rapidly. Her reluctance to be strict with her eldest son cause Paul to not be assertive enough. Throughout the novel, readers can point out that Paul is very similar to prey, while Erik acts like the hungry predator. In the novel, the author wrote,” Forget it dad, forget it mom, someone has to pay for this...I’m sure” ( Bloor 133).
Culturally, the evil eye is a human look that is believed to cause harm to someone, and in my personal life my mother and grandma believe the old superstition that if someone admires someone too much they can cause physical harm to someone, most often in the forms of nausea and headaches. The colloquialism of “the eye” is not only efficient establishing dialogue indicative of the times, but associating Curley’s wife through cultural connotation of the evil eye with ill-intent before she is even properly introduced. This criticism Candy has of Curley’s shows the sexism of the characters in the novel. In Curley’s opinion, nothing else is noteworthy about Curley’s wife besides her appearance and sexual desire for men other than her husband. Curley’s wife is not regarded as a person in Candy’s eyes, and many other men on the farm, but rather as a sexual object with no back story, ideas or personality traits other than loose.

Mariam and Laila are forced, by punishment up to execution, to remain loyal and patient to their husband and while in public. Even while the alternative is cruel, “Mariam chewed. Something in the back of her mouth cracked”, Rasheed demonstrates his lack of compassion by leaving her to“spit out pebbles, blood, and the fragments of two broken molars”. (p. 104) Enduring injustices like this are nothing short of common for women in developing countries. Men control women through manipulation and fear, powerful, ugly tools that spawn from greed and selfishness.
This detail again strengthens the idea that regarding women, men had little values regarding their treatment and they did not hold marriage in such a sanctity that it is now held. Another instance of male brashness is witness in the relationship between Telemachus and Penelope. Once matured, her son speaks harshly toward his mother declaring that “I cannot fault your anger at all this. My heart takes not of everything, feels it too, both the good that the bad—the boy you knew is gone” (XVIII.255-258). The most painful of these words arrives at the end when her son proclaims that the child she raised is not the same anymore.
In Shakespeare 's play, King Lear, it is brutally obvious that Lear is strongly disliked, or even hated by his two older daughters, Goneril and Regan. In the novel A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley, Ginny’s and Rose’s hatred for their father doesn’t appear to be too over the top until the reasons they hate him so much are finally revealed. Both sets of sisters eventually end up retaliating against their fathers after they are given his land. Some may say that the daughters actions against their fathers was cruel, atrocious, and wrong; however, an argument could be made that their actions were justified by how their father had previously treated them. Perhaps Lear and Larry deserved to be treated as they were.
