He shows a twist of emotions , and lacks to show identity. In the poem he says"...True i said "my grandmother" Because if i would have said my mother ypu wouldn't believe a word of it, since a mother should be leading,.." This means that through evry harsh emotion he makes lit of the situation by hiding the pain and hurtness and replacing it with joy, yet he makes you wonder of who the identity he truly is talking about. In the poems We Wear the Mask by Paul Laurence Dunbar and Glass Ceiling by T.R Hummer both have a significant amount of similarities and difference, although there is more similarities between them both.The similarities between both poes is that they both mask their central feelings, they express themselves but they dont want people to know how they really are inside. They wish to keep their feelings anonymous, so they always look happy. The main difference between the two is that one truly shows what they are say and mean what they say but the other poem twists what he says around as if he doesn't know what to
Blanche’s dependence on a man is a clear representation of her desperation for a married life. She believes that Mitch could be her future spouse and pursues a romantic relationship with him. While Blanche truthfully begins to fall for Mitch, she approaches him with multiple lies to win his heart. but through the way she chooses to pursue him, she compromises her true shot at happiness with Mitch after the truth was revealed. When Blanche asks what he wants, Mitch replies with, “What I’ve been missing all summer” (120), indicating that Blanche could have had a chance, had she not lied.
This is seen in, The Wife of Bath’s Prologue when Chaucer talks about love being mutual respect. He says the ideal marriage is when the patriarchy is flattened. A woman will never really truly love a man until he gives her the freedom to do what she wants to do. Chaucer also shows a woman being equal to her man in, The Wife of Bath, when the wife asks her husband if he would rather have her ugly and loyal or pretty and him always questioning what she was up to. To this, the Knight says, “I leave the matter to your wise decision…Whatever pleases you suffices me.” (lines 377 and
Romeo and Juliet claim that they love each other, but that isn’t possible. How can they possibly be in love when they have only known each other for a few short hours before declaring their undying love and uniting in Holy Matrimony? Love is a limitless and condition-less devotion, based on an intimate knowledge, to another person, whereas lust is an emotional obsession based on physical chemistry and appearance. Lust initiates a desire to acquaint ourselves with someone, but our interactions with and increased knowledge of a person are what cause us to love. Romeo and Juliet definitely lusted after each other.
Despite placing the blame for this situation on Lysander, saying that it was with cunning that he "flinch'd my daughter's heart, turn'd her obedience...to stubborn harshness"(line 37,38) and that he "bewitched the bosom of my child" (line 28), Egeus does not suggest that any punishment should be put forth for Lysander for interfering with the planned marriage. This could be that because Lysander is not part of Egeus' family, Egeus does not have control over Lysander; it could also be that Egeus believes that a truly obedient daughter would follow her father's command regardless of any other person's
According to Puritan beliefs, self-love or love to somebody else should not be superior to our love to God. In the poem, “To My Dear and Loving husband”, Anne Bradstreet boasts about the love she and her husband share. Anne exaggerates her love for her husband and thinks they are the perfect couple with a powerful connection. She expresses how her husband’s love is more important than “whole mines of gold or all the riches that the East hold” (Bradstreet, 5-6). With this phrase, she gives the idea that she does not care about any other love rather than her husbands and even makes us think that she loves her husband more than she loves God and that this love was distracting her from her commitment to him.
When Sappho says “[…]Who, O/Sappho, is wronging you?” she is basically asking herself “Why is this happening to me when all I did is love this woman with all my heart?). Anaktoria strongly influences Sappho's words, She makes references to her on multiple occasions. When Aphrodite answered Sappho she said:” For if she flees, soon she will pursue./If she refuses gifts, rather will she give them./If she does not love, soon she will love/even unwilling.” These words tell us how even though Anaktoria left Sappho she will find love somewhere else. She fled Sappho only to find someone else. As much as Sappho wants her there is nothing she can do to get her back.
I also see Maude Clare dangling half a golden chain in front of Thomas’ face because in line 21 Maude Clare says, “Here’s my half of the golden chain.” I believe the mood of the poem is sympathy/pitying. After reading this poem I felt sympathetic to each of the main characters. I feel sorry for Thomas and Nell because Maude Clare shows up on their wedding day and tries to cause trouble. However, I feel sorry for Maude Clare and Thomas because I believe they were in love, but because of their social status they cannot be together. In lines 47 and 48 Nell says, “ ‘I’ll love him till he loves me best, me best of all, Maude Clare.’” This along with line 10 leads me to believe that Thomas is only marrying Nell out of convince, when he is actually still in love with Maude Clare.
“She did deceive her father, marrying you, And when she seemed to shake and fear your looks, She loved them most.”(3,3,211-213) Iago talks down about Desdemona for not following her father’s commands. Therefore Iago uses that as a reason for Othello to not completely trust Desdemona. “Be as your fancies teach you. Whate'er you be, I am obedient.” (3,3,89) Desdemona accepts the fact that she is obedient to her husband. He can do whatever he wants without questions being asked.
The speaker is a man that is trying to get this woman to become romantically involved, by reminding her that life is short. Marvell’s speaker tells the woman “Had we but world enough, and time, / This coyness, Lady, were no crime” (Marvell 1-2).This suggests that it would not be a crime to keep him waiting on her shy love if they had all the time in the world. Therefore this woman has to quit being shy. Marvell’s speaker said in the poem “To walk and pass our long love’s day” (Marvell 4) which says that love can fade away over time and after a while it is hard to come back to because it is gone. Therefore she needs to respond to the things that he is saying to
