FAMILY VALUES IN ''CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF'' In this essay, I plan to look back on the most important characteristics of the family and family relations in Cat On a Hot Tin Roof, written by Tennessee Williams. I will examine the individual relationships between members of Pollitt family, and also try to explain the essence of problems that plagued this American family. I'm hoping to observe these issues from sociological, psychological and historical position, and through detailed examination, I will try to present certain views.
The father an optimistic fellow-a symbol of the Almighty – is benevolent enough to accept him back and carefully approaches the eldest son on how to receive back his younger brother (Pierce, & Brian, 2016). The tone by St. Luke is that of excitement and fun initially but trickles to nostalgic when the prodigal son starts to think of his home and shifts again to fun upon the arrival back
At the beginning of the story, Kino is a kind-hearted man who cares for his family. At the climax of the story, Kino is very greedy, selfish, violent, scared, and he doesn 't seem to care that much about his family. At the end of the story, he realizes his sins and wants to become a good man again. At first Kino hears “…a song now, clear and soft, and if he had been able to speak of it, he would have called it the Song of the Family.” (Steinbeck, 6).
Ironically, men mostly fall in love by women’s appearance at first and soon get disappointed easily when they reveal something unexpected or unfavorable. If it still does not affect his decision, it may be called ‘true love’, because nothing can interrupt his confidence. However, Dorian begins to doubt what he saw and finally neglects his first feeling, which is nonsense. Does it can be called love? Definitely
Knowing how jealousy eats someone up, Iago uses that upon Othello by introducing doubt in one of the greatest things he had, his love in Desdemona. The way Iago worked into Othello’s head is that he made it seem like he was helping him by thinking of different possibilties, which only fed the green-eyed monster in Othello. “Their best conscience is not to leave ‘t undone, but keep ‘t unknown,” (III,iii. 235-236)said Iago, which exaplains exactly how he functions. He tells Othello what he wants to hear, which is what builds the doubt of Othello.
Laertes is respected by many for his strong set of morals as well as his belief in justice and honor. He is idealistic and well-meaning (“Hamlet” 3). His character represents the “...embodiment of official duty and obedience...”(Sadowski 9). Hamlet was a long-time friend of Laertes until his sudden descent into fake madness and obsession with revenge which consequently lead to the accidental killing of Polonius that was meant to be Claudius. Later on, after devastating heartbreak and insanity Ophelia mysteriously
Othello is also counting on the fact that Barbantio once loved him. Ruth Vanita claims that Othello is also a good husband who has an intense love for his wife Desdemona, ‘’the difference between Othello and Shakespeare’s other jealous husbands...is the far greater depth and intensity of Othello’s love for his wife’’ (1). Othello’s devotion to Desdemona is nothing in comparison to Shakespeare’s other husbands. Othello is deeply and utterly in love with Desdemona. Desdemona’s father accuses Othello of using magic to get Desdemona to fall for him but Othello reassures him that he does not use magic, he just tells stories.
(Carver, 2) Evidently, the imbecilic Narrator was feeling jealous through his thoughts and actions. The Narrator is also jealous of Richard. Later on, before Richard came over, the Narrator says, “Maybe I could take him bowling” (Carver, 3). Even though the Narrator thought that he was amusing, his wife rejected the joke. After hearing this, she said, “If you love me..you can do this for me.
Many people tell lies to make others feel empathy for them. Weak people buy into these lies and get develop and weak adaptation towards them. Whilst others ignore the empathetic feelings toward them and become strong against them or the forces against them. In Tennessee Williams play A Streetcar Named Desire” we can see two male characters have contrasting resilience toward Blanche Dubois, this resilience is directly tied in with the empathy they feel towards her life story.
Looking at the book Romeo and Juliet, you see love as a good impact as it brings people together. In this book, there are two teenagers, valiant Romeo, from the Montague family, and beautiful Juliet, from the Capulet family who fall in love and marry each other secretly. In the end, they kill themselves based on their love and when their parents find out, they end the feud to honor their children saying, “O’ brother Montague, give me thy hand.” (5.3.296) Here, love connected the Capulets and Montagues.
For my essay I chose the the question “Do you blame Sucker for turning on Pete so completely” and the point of view I am taking is yes. For one reason I am saying yes is because of the way Pete treated him even though all Sucker did was try to love him and respect him. If Pete did what he did to Sucker to me, it wouldn’t have lasted that long and I would have got mad earlier. Another reason is that Pete liked Sucker when he was getting what he wanted which was Maybell. Think how you feel if you loved your cousin and he didn’t even like you unless he gets his way.
He becomes so much happier, and not so somber all the time. Henry realizes that he needs to communicate with his son in order to have a good relationship with him. Without Marty, Henry would still be that lonely, elderly guy who is very discreet and reserved. However, he now has high spirits, and is an all around
This quote shows that Dick is longing to forget about the murders and move on with his life. Capote uses words like " Why the hell couldn't Perry shut up" and "He was Annoyed.. Annoyed as hell" to show Dick his antagonistic attitude towards Perry's level of concern. Though he secretly feels guilty about what happened, he wishes that Perry would stop bringing it up since that makes it harder for him to forget about the horrific event. With this quote Capote's is trying to reveal that Dick thought of Perry as paranoid and over dramatic.
Truman Capote writes “ Deal me out baby, ‘ Dick said. ‘I’m a normal.’ And Dick meant what he said. He thought of himself as balanced, as sane as anyone - maybe a bit smarter than the average fellow, that’s all. But Perry - there was, in Dick’s opinion, ‘something wrong’ with Little Perry.”
