Guterson uses the line, “Yet the suspicion that he loved more deeply than she did nevertheless remained with him,” to show Ishmael’s concealed fears resonated deeply within him. Ishmael had known Hatsue never loved him the way he did her – always giving much of himself to her, and not being granted the same courtesy. Ishmael had constantly convinced himself that if he lived in his fairy tale, everything would be fine. He lived joyously in his own ignorance, certain that he and Hatsue would marry, pushing the truth that Hatsue never loved him down in the pits of his mind. Guin had also shared the same story of ignorance with Omelas, as the child locked away begged, “’Please let me out.
He argues that the adulterous relationship between Dimmesdale and Hester was a crime of passion and love, not lust and disloyalty. Therefore, it deserves the reader’s sympathy and acceptance. Hester Prynne is in love with Dimmesdale. From the start of chapter two when Hester says that she “will not speak” (64), we know that she is protecting the father of her child (who we later find out is Dimmesdale). Although there could be multiple reasons for why Hester decided
This quote is important to keep thought of because some men can be very open minded and pleasing, but men only care about getting woman pregnant and leaving them afterwards. A complete definition of love being a joke can allow us to understand how people are very self centered. Love suppose to be a way to show affection and not to think of love as a joke but to think of as a serious concept. Love is pleasing but at times, love can be risky due to how love can blind people. With the characteristics of love, people enjoy love but in The Tragedy Romeo and Juliet, the story slightly shows how uneducated people are when they discover love.
Despite the fact that he at first does not have any vindictive considerations and thoughts, he in the long run becomes a murderer due to emotionally untrustworthy and jealousy. As you read the play it isn't basic to connect Othello with such spellbinding words as vain, however he is in each feeling of the word. Othello loses his tempers effortlessly as a kid does when disappointed and Iago knew how to play with his unsteady personality that produced because of the idea of his wife is heating on him. Also, obviously that is of course a lie. All
Without even thinking twice about it, Curley believes the worst of his wife and that she has no devotion at all. The act displays that there is no trust between the two of them and they do not have a strong bond. Ergo, Curley and his wife confirm that loyalty is needed in order for there to be a strong relationship between people. In conclusion, Of Mice and Men effectively shows how important loyalty is between people. Without it, relationships will be broken down to nothing.
I hate myself for it. Because I don't want the girl, and still, I take it and- I love it!” Similarly to Willy with business, Happy’s attempts at happiness fail to satisfy him. Happy has the same arrogance as Willy and belief that being well-liked and indulging in shallow acts will bring him success, inevitably leading to happiness. The same tragic pattern that occurred with Willys suicide is reoccurring with Happy with his refusal to see things as they truly are and break out of the same dissatisfying cycle as his

For the longest time, she lied to herself and others about Dean being unfaithful. She lied and said he was a convectional artist, not a cheater, but, so it seemed, she was the only one believing it. Eventually, she grew tired of his games, and no longer wanted to participate.
Roderigo cannot see through Iago’s lies because he is too busy being jealous of Othello and Desdemona’s love. Another instance of how jealousy could blind one from distinguishing the truth would be how Othello cannot see past Iago’s deceiving lies. After just being manipulated to doubt his own wife, Desdemona, Othello speaks to himself, “this fellow’s of exceeding honesty and knows all quantities, with a learned spirit, of all humans, if I do prove her haggard.” Othello is constantly insecure of himself, though he never would imagine Desdemona cheating on him, Iago managed to “plant a seed” into Othello’s mind. Manipulating him that Desdemona is having an affair and he should keep a close eye on her. Now that Iago has managed to make Othello jealous, Othello would never see where and and when Iago is deceiving

The audience may feel alienated towards him at the start of the play considering his selfish and harsh treatment of his favorite daughter.As an audience, we soon feel sympathy for Lear despite his egotistical manner. He quickly regrets his decision and can be forgiven for behaving rashly
Because of this, she’s expected to love him no matter what. The reasons stated within the passage would make no sense to any ordinary person, and would not be recognized as reasons to love someone. “She loved him for the way he sat loosely in a chair, for the way he came in a door, or moved slowly across the room with long strides. She loved the intent, far look in his eyes when they rested on her, the funny shape of the mouth”(pg 2). In order to justify her servitude to him, she unconsciously attempted to look for valid reasons to love him, which didn’t exist, which resulted in these inadequate
“There’s nothing remarkable in their making a man foolish, in women winning men To sin, for Adam our father was deceived just so, and Solomon, and also Samson, Delilah was his death and later David Endured misery for Batheba’s beauty. Women ruined them: how wonderful if men could love them well, but never believe them!” (130). Ever since Adam & Eve days, females have been seen as femme fatale. As “An alluring and seductive woman, especially one who leads men into compromising and dangerous situations.”- (dictionary).

He demonstrated a love so strong that most would not understand. His love for Lucy was so pure and honourable. Although he loved Lucy more than anything, he did not want to marry her. He said, “In spite of the happiness he would bring you misery, bring you to sorrow and repentance, blight you, disgrace you, pull you down with him. I know very well that you can have no tenderness for me; I ask for none; I am very thankful that it cannot be.”(144) Carton respected and loved her so much he believed that he did not deserve her.
But, like many others, she lacks the judgment necessary to recognize aftereffects. Cathy 's beauty entrances Mr. Edwards, who clings to the belief that her innocence is no mask. The narrator reveals that, “Love to a man like Mr. Edwards is a crippling emotion. It ruined his judgement, canceled his knowledge, weakened him" (96). With this in mind, Cathy lives a comfortable life, manipulating Mr. Edwards’ self-torturing love to pamper her and cater to her desires.
