The characters in Ann Patchett’s The Patron Saint of Liars illustrate the theme of the importance of loyalty in relationships. In the novel, Rose, who is pregnant, moves across the country to live in a home for pregnant girls, where she later marries the handyman. Her husband, Son, tells her, “You came here because you wanted to give her up and then you didn’t, you married me, you stayed here, and now it all doesn’t seem to matter very much, and sometimes I wonder why you did it, is all” (175). Son notices Rose’s indifference towards everything in their lives. She does not care about Son because she feels no sense of loyalty towards him.

During World War I, Mam wrote letters to Court every two weeks. Her bravery does not stem from the letters’ contents, but rather the details she omitted. Audrey explains to Harper that Mam never complained about “how Grandda growled at the sight and sound and smell of children or how he judged Mam’s housekeeping slovenly and her childrearing faulty ones’ mouths” (77).

Without her prowess, Mam may not have been able withstand the separation of her husband, or the cruel treatment of Grandda.
Another incident where Joe makes Janie seem smaller is shown when they are at a town gathering. Joe does not allow Janie to speak for herself because he thinks she is incapable of controlling her own speech and assumes she is not as educated as he is.

Although Joe was abusive and controlling, Janie had feelings for him in the beginning of their relationship and she truly cared for him.

However, they both show evidence that they are not truly happy with their hollow lives, which lack emotion and meaningfulness. Beatty acts as symbolism for what Montag could have become. Similar to Montag, Beatty is a firefighter who has read books and educated himself. However, he insists on continuing to conform to society and tries to convince Montag to do so as well, claiming that literature is too controversial, which causes tension and does not lead to happiness.

When first reading Van Meter’s “First” my first thoughts was that a girl was describing her friend Ben as “the first brown eyed boy I will fall for” yet as I continued reading I obviously realized the situation (Meter 177). Meter most likely purposely to teach that no matter the situation love is constant. “First” shows that there is no variation between how a person loves another no matter the background, culture, preference the lesson is love is constant. Embracing the diversity of humanity in this case beginning aloof to the author’s gender, allows for bias and experience to have no bearing on one’s capacity to feel love. The author is told by his mother that, “Two people get married when they love each other” yet she does not allows for her child to love another boy (Meter 178).
There is not a day that goes by that Jay Gatsby does not think about his love, Daisy Buchanan, who he is greatly enamored by and for whom he uses many tactics to attract to him, causing it to seem as if his main concern in life was getting Daisy Buchanan back. He went through many trials and tribulations before he was finally satisfied with Daisy’s presence, but it wasn 't long until she was stripped away from him forever, “vanish[ing] into her rich house, into her rich, full life” (Fitzgerald 156). Many people who read The Great Gatsby, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, believe that Gatsby is a hopeless romantic, but when you further examine the way in which he goes about trying to reach out to the love of his life, can you truly say he is a
Elizabeth Bennet is also stereotyped by society because of her family, although she is nothing like her parents or sisters. This causes problems for her as she grows older and is expected to begin courting. When Elizabeth catches the eye of Mr. Darcy, a “****”, he avoided her for a very long time as his admission to himself that he is in love with
The above passage from Pride and Prejudice depicts a major turning point in the novel. This passage follows Mr. Darcy’s marriage proposal to Elizabeth. Before this passage, Mr. Darcy proposes to Elizabeth and then follows by explaining to her all the reasons he tried to stop himself from falling for, claiming that Elizabeth’s low social class would degrade his own social standing and the problem with her family were reasons he tried to resist his feelings for her, which emphasizes the theme of social class because it shows how social class means something different for everyone and is more important to some people than to others. What Mr. Darcy says to Elizabeth before the passage above illustrates a justification to Elizabeth’s anger towards Mr. Darcy and is a reason Elizabeth was so angry and frustrated towards Mr. Darcy in this passage, compared to when she rejected Mr. Collin’s marriage proposal.
When Janie first complains of her marriage to Logan, Nanny says, “Heah you got uh prop tuh lean on all yo’ bawn days, and big protection, and everybody got tuh tip dey hat tuh you and call you Mis’ Killics,” (23). Nanny tries to convince Janie that she should be satisfied with her status of having been able to marry a respectful man. However, Janie feels that love is necessary for her marriage, and that she will be extremely unhappy if she cannot love. For Janie, the status does not matter for any relationship; rich or poor, as it is pointless without love for one another. Her firm determination to find love leads her to marry Joe, who claims he will never make her work or suffer hardship.
Janie finds out that her second attempt to marriage does not give what she desires, and it is only in her “condemned” marriage that Janie finally achieves her true love and happiness.

Janie is not allowed to participate in any town events that are ruled as un-lady like by Jody. On the outside, Janie is restricted to the general store or the house, but in those times she would constantly question why she was not able to behave like a man. It is only when Janie marries Tea Cake, a man younger than her, that she achieves her quest of finding true love and subsequently her happiness.
