and he makes all decisions for her without even knowing what's going on in her life. Mr. Capulet is the most responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death because he didn't respect Juliet’s thoughts , he was selfish, and he kept the feud going between the families. Social status. That's all Mr. Capulet was thinking about when he arranged the marriage between Juliet and Paris. When the two families were on good terms with the Prince Mr. Capulet thought “She hath not seen the change of fourteen years, Let two more summers wither in their pride, pass by Ere we may think her ripe to be a bride.”
One of the main examples of denial is through Brick who denies his sexuality for Maggie, Big Daddy, and himself. He is trying to please everyone in the family through ignoring how he feels, which leads him to drinking his sorrows through liquor. It is not the fact that he does not love Maggie it is that he can not love Maggie due to loss of attraction. He is denying himself for Big Daddy only to not disappoint him because he is the son. He loves Big Daddy and to tell him the news while he is on his death time would leave Brick to the thought of Big Daddy dying in disappointment through his son.
In Giovanni’s Room by James Baldwin the lost soul that is David would much rather “play it safe” than live his best life. He does this because he has grown to be ashamed of his sexuality and who is in general. The author of this novel James Baldwin once said “love takes off the masks we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.” Since David is ashamed of himself he pretends to be someone he’s not and hides behind this “mask” of deceit in order to feel secure his body and in the unaccepting society he lives in. He grows so accustomed to this mask that he rejects love and the nakedness of vulnerability that would come with taking off this mask.
Also in Act 4, he was highly conflicted over whether or not to confess to working with the devil to escape death. In the end, he decided lying was a sin he did not want to commit and chose to die a honest man rather than survive as a deceptive man. So in the end it is clear to see that John Proctor still is a good man despite his short-lived affair with Abigail. He was an honest, good-hearted man who wished for nothing more than to live a good life with his wife and children.
He is 30 and married to his wife Mildred that is only with him because of his money and talent. He works for the fire department and scorches books for a living to keep knowledge out of people’s heads with a slight twist. The world sees him as a generally afraid person that is very insecure about what he does that Montag is a rebel that does not abide by the rules and does not do what he is told. Montag shows rebellion when he says “Didn't firemen prevent fires rather than stoke them up and get them going” (Bradbury, 5). In this quote, he realizes that what he does for a living is wrong and he should change his ways and do what a fireman is supposed to do.
Sam and Pilar from a young age had naturally assumed their parents not wanting them together due to racist beliefs of the other’s culture. However, it was much more than that.

To make matters worse, his father’s mistress is Mercedes Cruz, Pilar Cruz mother.
Love Over Lust Anyone can start a relationship, but maintaining a healthy one does not happen as easy. People grow apart, people change, or they simply lose touch. This is not true with George and Lennie, the two men in John Steinbeck’s ‘Of Mice and Men.’ In the novel, the close friends find a job together and work as hard as they can to reach their goal of a house of their own.
According to Charles Mccardel“ He withholds the truth, but finally admits to his transgression. He does this partly to ease his conscience, but also (he hopes) to save his hide and protect his loved ones amid a witch hunt that's running out of control.” Even though he tells Elizabeth what he had done with Abigail without her having to find out through somebody else she does not trust him anymore. It hurts her so bad it is hard for her because what she thought was a good, loving, caring man actually turns out to be a no good cheater. He tries to make up for what he did through the years.
Rather than discussing the evils of apartheid, Coetzee lets his readers see how apartheid affects relationships through events in his own life. The relationship between the young boy and his mother is a love-hate relationship. He wants to separate himself from her, and determines to share nothing with her. When his mother doesn´t have enough money for three circus tickets and choose to stay outside in the blazing sun waiting for him and his brother, he sees her behaviour as ‘’blinding, overwhelming, self-sacrificial love’’ that demands ‘’a debt of love’’ which he is unwilling to pay.
What I found most striking about “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao” by Junot Diaz, is that when you take away the Dominican mother, the Dominican abuelita, the fuku , the Spanglish, and the cultural references, Lola and Oscar, appear to suffer the trials and tribulations we all do as teenagers. As Junot Diaz immerses the reader in their tumultuous lives from the Dominican Republic to Paterson, New Jersey, you discover that Oscar and Lola are teenagers navigating the same physical and emotional roads we all did growing up. Oscar does not want to die a virgin and Lola wants to be independent. The mother clamors to provide for her children just like single mothers everywhere. Oscar was a “social introvert”, (Diaz, 2007, p. 22), finding
In The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao , Junot Díaz uses Beli’s near death experience to highlight how love and violence work together to keep the plot moving. After Beli becomes undeniably in love with the Gangster she sees a life with him and plans on being with him for years.

Symbolism of Two In “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson and “The Rocking Horse Winner” by D.H. Lawrence, both authors use symbols to help carry out the main purpose of the story to the readers.

In chapters six, seven, and eight of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao the death of Oscar is presented by author Junot Diaz as a turning point in the troubled history of the De Leon family. After finishing the book, I’ve become convinced that Oscar’s untimely death leaves hope that one day the De Leon family will break free of their fuku curse. Oscar’s fate was decided by a fateful encounter with a mongoose on the night he was first brought to the sugarcane field by the police captain’s men. The conversation between the mongoose and Oscar gave the latter a newfound desire to live, to best the fuku curse for his sake and his family’s: “he remembered his family….
