However, in the context of the Middle Ages, the act of sacrificing one’s own happiness for something bigger was thought of as a heroic act. This is reinforced when he concludes with, “She can retain me, if that’s what she wants. Cercamon says: a man will hardly belong in court if he despairs of love” (Medieval 2, pg. 2). This is representative of the ideology that the man is being heroic by keeping his feelings bottled up for the greater good. In the poem “It has gone with me as with a child,” the narrator is also feeling conflicted, but for a different reason.
In these short poems, the authors utilize particular rhetorical techniques and methods to reflect the speakers’ personality and motivation. Therefore, presenting the speaker becomes the main focus of the authors. In Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18 and Robert Browning’s “My Last Duchess,” both poems reflect the speakers’ traits through monologue, figurative language, and symbolism. However, these two speakers’ personalities are different due to their attitude toward their beloved. The speaker in Sonnet 18 is gentle and delighted but frustrated because the ideal metaphor comparison of summer is not perfect for describing his beloved; the poem thus suggests that the way you love others reflects how you feel about yourself.
"Hi, Slim," she said… "Hi, Good-lookin '." (Curley’s wife and Slim Chapter 2). This description of Curley’s wife that Steinbeck introduced allows the reader to understand that Curley’s wife is not faithful to her husband, she chooses to be bad. Considering the fact that Curley’s wife has the strength and power to roam around flirting with men, shows that she is not faithful to Curley. She is choosing to be bad by leading herself astray and flirting with men she should not have been flirting with.
Because of the time period this poem was written in, I believe the dialogue occurs between a man and a woman who are attempting to understand one another 's perspective on their shared relationship. Differences in the tone and manner of voice are extremely apparent throughout the entirety of the poem. I believe the woman is struggling to communicate her intimate feelings to her male counterpart because the male is not reciprocating the same affection towards her. This can be seen in the first line of the poem where the two say: “‘I thought you loved me. ' 'No, it was only fun. '”
Ophelia is able to reveal to Polonius that Hamlet has affection for her. “‘He hath my lord, of late made many tenders of affection to me!’... ‘do you believe his tenders as you call them?” Ophelia wants to believe that Hamlet is being sincere revealing a feminine way to look at an affair, but Polonius shuts down her perceptions about Hamlet. Feminist analysis comes into play with the male intentions versus the female emotions.

The short story tries to criticize the fact that men are given a lot of importance compared to women. Men are considered to be powerful than men.

From this it describes that women aren’t always true to their lovers. The relationship between Catullus and Lesbia began as a two way love but suddenly turns into a give and take relationship. Even though Catullus truly loves her Lesbia doesn’t return those feeling of love to him. In one of the poems even though Catullus give her love and other thing she only speaks ill of him.
It’s also a brutally honest song. The girl whose image the songwriter paints doesn’t come off all that pretty. This portrait of a flawed character makes it almost feels like the tables have been turned in the relationship and the guy now has the higher ground.

In Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream , some parts indicate patriarchy and disrespect for women. Specifically, in act one, Duke of Athens, Theseus, tries to convince Hermia, daughter of Egeus, to accept her father’s superiority. “What say you, Hermia?
In the poem, “For That He Looked Not upon Her,” the poet, George Gascoigne, communicates his fickle attitude towards his lover. With the use of standard Shakespearean sonnet form, exaggerated diction and vivid imagery he explains why the speaker is bound to avoid his ex-lovers eyes, since they can spell him to live a life with further deception and heartache. Gascoigne’s practice of sonnet form consists of the “ABAB” rhyme scheme, couplet, and four stanzas adding emphasis on the protagonists reluctance to see his lover’s face. As the poem progresses it becomes clear on why the speaker is warry. The poem includes paradoxing examples that elaborate his complex situation.
One of the motifs that are seen throughout the whole book is sexual violence, Sexual violence in the book is not something that is very vulgar and violent, but very harsh and unacceptable.
