Desdemona realizes she is going to die and tells her hand maiden that she loves Othello regardless and if her death will solve his problems then it is worth it. Desdemona cares so much for Othello that she is willing to give everything up for him, including her life. Her sacrifice to protect what she values most, Othello, makes her level headed and calm about her impending doom. Desdemona decides that she will sacrifice herself so that Othello learns his lesson, and can be the man she fell in love with again. Desdemona forgives Othello for his slander of her reputation, and lovingly accepts her death at his hands.
This is false because they may seem to be in love, however, Romeo noticeably only loves Juliet for her looks based off of his comparison of her to celestial objects whilst expressing his love. Moreover, Juliet is uncertain of her feelings throughout their entire story, but because of Romeo’s foolhardy love for Juliet, they progressed with their relationship at too fast of a pace, causing numerous accounts of danger and mistakes, resulting in a flawed relationship that sadly ended in both their deaths. If they were to get to know each other better and take their love more slowly, it would show that they are truly in love, but sadly the course they chose to partake, made for inevitable doom in their
In Pale Fire, for example, Charles Xavier, the king of Zembla, had homosexual experiences as a prince, further proving that love is not a constant, measurable concept- it takes different forms. In this way he is almost defending Humbert Humbert in Lolia, and Nabokov brings the readers along with him. Readers, although initially horrified, at least in some ways warm up the pedophile, recognizing that he has a different idea of love than “sane” people do. Thus it becomes hard to wish him the total imprisonment that he eventually
Okay, so Benedick explains that in the beginning he was a man who was critical of women and thought they would always cheat on their husbands. Yeah, this was the reason why he would only marry the ideal woman who possessed qualities such as being rich, virtuous, wise, fair, mild, noble, a good conversationalist, and a musician. But now, he seems to regret his old views he held about women saying, “If you lose your identity as a man and devote yourself as a soldier, you fear love.” “Another man is a fool when he dedicates his behaviors to love,” says Benedick as he recalls when he was surprised by the changes in Claudio’s behavior, and thought that a man can be so easily fooled by love(Act 2, Scene 3). After that incident, Benedick reveals that he was jealous that Claudio was lighthearted, in a very happy mood, fashionable, and soft-spoken.
Their pain is perceived by him as his own pain. For the sake of them, he is willing to risk his life to find Sollozzo because he dared to hurt his father and threaten their family. Coppola uses this to underline the excessive haste of the character and create his image as a good performer but not a future Don. Moreover, such devotion to the family creates the basis for Santino 's subsequent death because his image is complete and does not have the appropriate dynamism. Santino only seeks to protect the family at any cost; in the end, it leads him to betrayal.
Othello and Desdemona are married and her father does not approve but he still loves her and learns how to deal with this obstacle but as the play progresses, his dear friend Iago convinces him that Desdemona is cheating and he allows himself to believe that and changes his attitude towards her in such a negative way. He allowed himself to fall for a lie that he should have known that was wrong or instead confront Desdemona and see what was going on. Iago had a fixed mindset and didn 't go anywhere because he was too busy worrying about other people and their life styles. He didn 't like Othello because he was black and because of this he told him lies and even stole one of Desdemona’s handkerchiefs to try and make a point.
Candide's carelessness can also come from his love for Cunegonde, his lover. The reader may assume that Candide’s love for Cunegonde blinds his judgement and results irresponsible and inattentive behavior. “When a man is in love, is jealous, and has been flogged by the Inquisition, he becomes lost to all reflection” (Voltaire pg 22). What Voltaire was trying to say was that a man is not himself when he is in love or is jealous. All Candide wants is to return to his lover so he would do anything to see her again.
When he prioritizes selfish, egotistical, Western morals over Confucian, Japanese morals by asking for Ojosan’s hand in marriage even though K is in love with her, he feels extreme guilt. He also believes that he drives K to suicide by quoting an earlier statement and taking advantage of his vulnerability, causing him to fully separate himself from society. He feels in conflict with himself as old traditions wane in the face of new, individualistic ways. He no longer lives to hold up to a standard of nobility or duty, but instead lets his selfish emotions and individualistic attitude lead, costing him his friend’s life and a life full of shame. The only thing that prevents him from suicide is his wife, whom to him represents the old values unaffected by modernization.
In the sonnet, it is apparent that the speaker is upset about his predictions that his lover may “cast his utmost sum” of love. He claims that one reason is that his “defects” will become more prominent with age which will cause his lover to “audit” or evaluate his reasons of loving him. The speaker cannot even “allege [a] cause” as to why his lover should have love for him. He believes that “when” his lover loses his love for him, if they are to come across each other somewhere the lover will “scarcely greet [him] with [an] eye.” In the end, the speaker is willing to put his own “hand against [him]self” and take the blame for any reason that causes him and his partner to separate
However, this leaves the man exposed to danger with the external world because his ‘love object,’ as Freud calls it, can either reject him or she dies. Inherently, if a woman chooses one man over another, one of the men will suffer discontent sexually because he does not have that genital satisfaction he longs for. Also, if a woman chooses to be with one man but leaves him for another, then that man will suffer dissatisfaction because he has lost his love-object due to unfaithfulness. Worse case of all would be that a man loses his love-object due to death. Consequently, this reassures that a man has to compete for a woman constantly in order to meet his sexual satisfaction.
Throughout literature, hesitant figures and people at odds with their own desires shown up often and have roused the curiosity of readers for centuries. In the play Fences by August Wilson, we are shown a character whose existence asks the question: can a person act like a vicious vandal but still do what he thinks is best for his family? Troy Maxson, the main character in Fences, is a man with an empty marriage, and a controlling and cruel relationship with his son but is still a decent man underneath it all. From the beginning, Troy and Rose didn’t have the typical happy marriage.

Out of anger for her unfaithfulness to him, George yells at Myrtle, which causes her to run out into the street when she notices Tom’s vehicle driving towards the auto shop. “I took her to the window and I said ‘God knows what you've been doing, everything you've been doing.
What value does individuality have if once uniqueness becomes average in society? In this sort stories “Harrison Bergeron” by Ursula K. Le Guin and “The ones who walk away from Omelas” by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. portray, that individuality comes at a cost. Both authors narrate in third person omniscient, demonstrating similar ideas in setting, symbolisms of characters and dramatic situations. The point of view in both stories is to analyze individuality vs. society: in such a perfect world certain freedoms or sacrifices would need to be met in order to balance out the serenity in their perfect worlds. First off, in the beginning of the stories the authors built up a positive setting in the story line, by describing the scenario as the ideal world to live in.
Chief Red Jacket was trying to express his feelings towards freedom of religion in his speech because throughout, he explained what his “great spirit” blessed him and his people with, his spirit would've gave him positive knowledge of the white people's religion, and most importantly, how satisfied he is to worship the “great spirit”.
