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
Linda Brent sought to escape Dr. Flint’s increasing threat and inevitable sexual abuse by having an extra-marital affair with his neighbour Mr. Sands. In comparison to Dr. Flint, Mr. Sands seemed to genuinely care for Linda, even helping and protecting her from Dr. Flint. Linda believed that being sexually involved with another man would deter Dr. Flint from pursuing her; however, this only worsened her situation -- Dr. Flint threatened to keep her as her slave forever, and Brent had two children with Mr. Sands. The greatest difference between the speakers of these two narratives is that one is a mother and the other is not; however, mother or not, they both understand the extremely terrible consequences of raising children as an enslaved
The main character of The Crucible, John Proctor is someone who possesses all the necessity traits that classify a tragic hero. Not only is his downfall in the book initiated by his human flaw, but he also captures the sympathy from the readers. Even though John Proctor’s intentions are good and truthful through out the book, in the beginning we discover that he has a significant secret. He is guilty of committing the sin of adultery with his young servant, Abigail Williams. His sick wife Elizabeth learned of his infidelity and forgave him, but Abigail was in love with John and tries to kill Elizabeth by engaging in witchcraft with a few other girls in Salem.
Myrtle ended up cheating on Wilson because Tom had the money that Wilson lacked, she felt like she deserved more than she was getting. Fitzgerald’s Novel The Great Gatsby shows how Gatsby and Wilson lied to their women about how much money they had. No matter the efforts, they were not the person that their partners fell in love with. So Wilson ends up with an unhappy marriage and Gatsby is only used as a tool for Daisy to get her husband
Helena is in love with Demetrius even though she knows that he does not love her back, yet she still continues to fight for him. “Fie, Demetrius! Your wrongs do set a scandal on my sex. We cannot fight for love, as men may do. We should be wooed and were not made to woo.” (2.1.245-249) Here, Helena is pointing out that although it isn’t socially acceptable for women when it comes to love, she really doesn’t care.
(9) “I have no spur to prick the side of intent, but only vaulting ambition, which o’releaps itself and falls on the others.” Catherine was in love with two different men. It caused great heartbreak for both of these men. She married one, but pined for the other constantly. One forgive her before she died. She died giving birth to the child of her husband, but she was in love with Heathcliff until the end.
The down side to this is that he is impulsive in major life decisions, an example would be getting married to a woman that fell in love with him because she felt pity for him. Othello stated that Desdemona only fell in love with him for his lonely and depressing life. Othello said, “She loved me for the dangers I had past, / And I loved her that she did pity them.” Whiling explains how Desdemona fell in love with him (1.3.166-7). Another irrational decision he acted hastily upon was to kill his wife so soon after he thought she was having an affair. Othello didn’t really think about his decisions before he made them.
And the author also set a very satirical thing here--Demetrius once loved Helena and then loves Hermia after he met Hermia while he was in love with Helena. It is obviously that Demetrius is a bad man to fall in love with, but Egeus persists in marrying his daughter to him without any distinct reason. It is ridiculous for a father to marry his daughter to someone who is not loyal to love. However, this happens to Hermia and because of the home dictatorship that the daughter must obey her father, no one can change it, even Lysander`s accusement to Egeus and Demetrius. Comparing the Lines in the Original Version to That in the No Fear Version I insist that the lines in the original version is better than that in the no fear version, besides I love reading the no fear version because it is easy to understand.
The most important character, in my opinion, is Farmer Darton, since the story revolved around him and his choices. I think Mr. Darton was a jerk from the beginning, which is why he lost his chance to a true happiness or happy marriage. Toward the beginning he described Sally Hall as a “simple character” (305) and his friend, Johns told him that “Tis a wrong denomination to apply to a woman”. I was not surprised by the ending how Ms. sally rejects his second offer because of how he thought and described her. He married Sally because he could not find anyone better than Helene (his first love).
That is when Hera sent a fit of madness to Heracles and caused him to murder his own wife and children something he could never undo. Seeing what he had done he asked Apollo to cure him from his sins but in order for that to happen he would have to do trails no other human could do which came to be known as the twelve labors of Heracles. After he completed his labors Heracles married a second time and as a welcome home present Deianira (his second wife) made him cloak. She wove the cloak herself and she smeared a balm that was supposed to make Heracles love her forever but instead she was tricked and it was
