“Just gonna stand there and watch me burn. That’s alright because I like the way it hurts.” The woman in the relationship does not actually like being abused. It is a sarcastic statement because it would seem logical that the only reason she would still be in an abusive relationship is because she likes it. “Love the Way you Lie” is violent, sexual, either completely dark or very bright, and has small moments of “peace.” The couple has rare instances when their arguing ceases and some type of reconciliation occurs. The couple has an abusive relationship whilst the song is placed on the perspective of the male (Eminem).

Brabantio implies that women put on an act and pretend to be trustworthy.
However as the play goes on, we realize that she is very much afraid of being vulnerable to love, and uses her wit as a cover for it. Even though Beatrice is a strong-willed and independent woman, she does admit she has limitations. After the wedding, when Claudio wrongly accused Hero, she told Benedick how she had a plan (to kill Claudio). Benedick questioned her if any person could do it, and she responds
McEwan mainly focuses on how the negative emotions can affect moral judgement. In the case of Briony jealousy causes her to want to hurt Robbie. Rejection and replacement cause Briony’s jealousy as her love, Robbie, chose to be with her sister rather than with her. The lingering effect of jealousy can be attributed to the leading cause of her immoral judgement. By giving this character a hamartia such as this McEwan made it possible for the readers to eventually feel empathetic towards Briony, as many would have felt jealousy due to an unrequited
Medea, The True Wrongdoer in Euripides’ “Medea” The tragic drama titled “Medea”; written by Euripides is a Greek play about a female sorcerer, Medea, banished by her hometown to be with her love, Jason. Although, this did not work in her favor since she discovered that her lover is with another woman.

Once the beginning of the story took effect, the nurse shares her perspective on Medea to herself, giving valuable evidence to further strengthen the thesis.
Rikki Tikki is an audacious and inquisitive character in this story who often stands up to Nag and Nagaina. Nagaina is known for being villainous and gullible because she believed Darzee’s wife would come near her if she was hurt. Lastly, Kipling’s use of personification really brings the story alive, especially the feud between Rikki-tikki, Nag, and Nagaina.

Those mistakes can affect not only you but all the people around

The theme of “All Summer in a Day” is shown as Margot was hated by the others because they were jealous of her. They even consider her memory a felony and despise of her because of her future. This is shown at one point in the story where the other children’s feelings are clearly described. “The biggest crime of all was that… she remembered the sun… so, the children hated her… and her possible future” (Bradbury, 2). They felt that she had better opportunities awaiting her in the future and they took that as a reason to cause her harm.
In ‘My Last Duchess’ the duke couldn’t love his wife as she was too flirtatious and too easily made happy. The monologues satiric condemnation of the duchess as she “liked whate’er/She looked on” and “blushed” as “she thanked men” is heavy in irony, for in each criticism he bestows on the late duchess, the duke reveals his own distasteful nature.
