“Love” is presented in The Thirteenth Night and Dancing Girl as being subjected to social pressures, and is therefore a source of tension for individuals who are unable to reconcile their own experiences with social expectations and ideals. In The Thirteenth Night, “love” is tied to the social institutions of marriage and family. The protagonist Oseki is stuck in a loveless marriage as a divorce would not only result in her losing her son, but her family would lose
The miscommunication further develops people’s relationships divergent from the original intent of the actions, arousing disputes. In William Gibson’s play based on Helen Keller’s life, The Miracle Worker, the characters also struggle with similar relationship conflicts concerning the idea of visible love. The intense interactions between characters illustrate possible hostility, but in fact, convey one character’s sincere endearment to another with love mistakenly translated. In other words, when simply evaluating the exteriors, Gibson’s dramatic techniques portray the treatment of love as hatred, but when explored internally, it’s in-depth essence is revealed.
The difference is that Chillingworth married the youthful and passionate Hester not out of love. Chillingworth married her selfishly and left her feeling lonely, while he worked in Amsterdam (Dibble 62.) Dimmesdale loves Hester but, his position of power and the thoughts of others are too important for him to confess it. In Rappaccini’s Daughter it is shown that he greatly loves Beatrice but, as Stallman acclaims he creates “Beatrice to be lovely but, poisonous”. Thus condemning her to forever loneliness and to be forsaken by love.
Proctor may have committed adultery, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t love his wife Elizabeth. Everyone has made of mistake at some point in their life. Proctor wanted everything for her and his family, and after all love does change people in many ways,
The Truth About John Proctor and Elizabeth Proctor’s Marriage Marriage is one of the most beautiful ways for people to connect and show their love for each other. They make vows and promise to always take care of each other no matter what happens. However, marriages can be very deceiving. In Act II of The Crucible, Arthur Miller uses language to show how awful and broken John Proctor and Elizabeth Proctor’s marriage is. The use of diction, syntax, and tone in this act depicts an unhealthy marriage and shows the reader the truth of their marriage.
However, the letter finds its way into Heloise’s hands, which causes her to reach out to Abelard, causing a series of passionate letters between them. At first Heloise is longing and reminiscing about their past. Later she tries to say she has gotten over her love for Abelard, but comes out saying that she cannot rod him from her mind. Abelard admits he still loves and thinks about Heloise, but he is sorrowful over their sinful past. He wants what is best for Heloise, and wants her to focus on her spiritual life and be the best abbess she can be.
Throughout his “Divine Comedy,” Dante Alighieri encounters with two women, who are antithetical to one another in terms of their roles in the context of love. These two women; Francesca di Rimini and Beatrice, have similar emotional experiences since both have relationships outside marriage; yet, they have different roles when Dante explores the notion of love. The reader meets the first woman, Francesca, in Inferno, while meets the second, Beatrice, in Paradiso. In other words, one of them is being punished, whereas the other woman holds divine position. Thus, the female characters within the poem represents two distinct roles of women: either as a pure and holy being, or as a sinful entity.
Lord Bertilak’s reasons for deceiving Sir Gawain exhibit fruitful ideals distributed throughout the text. Sometimes deceit is needed in order to see a person’s true virtues. Lord Bertilak wants to test his chastity and compassion. He sends his wife to tempt Sir Gawain in order to see if Sir Gawain will uphold chastity.
In the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, two star-crossed lovers from Verona, Romeo and Juliet, grow up in enemy households, Montague and Capulet, respectively. The title characters ultimately take their lives because they are not allowed to express their love and their plan to escape backfires on them. Romeo and Juliet’s strong love-based relationship plus their relationships with others have a great influence over their lives. Therefore, it’s important to convey true feelings and honest opinions to the other in order to help and guide them to make the right choice and build stronger relationships. R&J’s lives are significantly impacted by the mutual love they share in which they also share their feeling for each other guiding them to build a stronger relationship and make the right choice for them; marriage.
Although she was madly in love with Abelard, Heloise would much rather be considered his friend, or even his prostitute, than any title even resembling that of a wife. She writes, “the name of wife may seem more sacred or binding, but sweeter for me will be always be the word friend, or… that of concubine or whore,” (Heloise 51). When Abelard proposes marriage, Heloise does all in her power to dissuade him from this notion. She tells him of “the loss to the Church and grief of philosophers which would greet such a which would greet such a marriage,” (Abelard 13). When these points do not dissuade Abelard, Heloise tells him of the “annoyances of marriage and its endless anxieties,” (Abelard 14), and that their marriage would ultimately be a form of Abelard’s servitude to her.
People want to get married because they are ready to take the relationship to a higher level of responsibility and commitment. The satirical argument made throughout the video is that one’s freedom is being compromised and ties, especially with the family are ruined once marriage gets in the picture. The video satirically highlights how individuals will not want to marry because of the huge commitments and responsibilities involved. This is ironic because, when it is decided that the goal of a relationship is marriage, it shows that the couple is ready to commit and love each other unconditionally. Marriage itself, regardless of one’s sexual preference, is a life-long promise one makes to the significant other.
Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare shows the difference between love and infatuation. Characters such as Orsino and Olivia give examples of infatuation, whereas characters such as Viola demonstrate a proper understanding of love. Orsino’s feelings and actions towards Olivia show that he is infatuated with her. Olivia repeatedly tells Orsino that she is not interested in marrying him, yet he continues to pursue her. If Orsino truly loved Olivia he would stop bothering her, as that is clearly what she wants.
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.
Adultery is every hard to defend because in most cultures or religions it’s socially or morally unacceptable, but The Storm challenges that position. An affair is normaly what ends relationships but for Calixta and Alcee, it makes them value their marriages like never before. Many people in today’s age
The language used here shows how bitter she is about marrying a hideous man, instead of the “handsome, broad-chested Montague.” One can note that Lady Capulet never says a positive word about the man that she married, yet speaks more highly of the father of the man her daughter married. A reader might find it interesting how paralleled Juliet and her mother are. Had Lady Capulet chosen love, she could have been dead like Juliet. Had Juliet chosen duty, she could have ended up in her mother’s shoes, married to a man that she doesn’t like or
