Chopin’s use of literary devices such as imagery, irony, foreshadowing and symbolism perfectly carves out the conditional love of Armand for Désirée and their child; however, Chopin uses these same devices to enhance the unconditional love of Désirée’s mother for her daughter and grandchild. Armand’s love for Désirée is the epitome of conditional love. This is prevalent throughout the story - from the moment he falls in love with her until the moment he banishes her from his home and his life. Initially, Armand is struck by love so suddenly, it seems nearly impossible: “...as if struck by a pistol shot” (1). The simple imagery used her foreshadows the inevitable quick disappearance of Armand’s love as it creates a stigma of provisionalism in his emotions.

Cersei as a character is far from a feminist. However, she is fascinating to examine from a feminist perspective, because her entire life and much of her personality is effectively a reflection of the misogynistic nature of “Westerosi” society. She’s an ambitious woman who has had to fight against limitations her whole life, and who has become hard, cruel and bitter as a result. Even as a child, Cersei is portrayed as bold and haughty, bordering on cruel. She tormented Tyrion, her dwarfish younger brother, fearlessly put her hand into a lion’s cage, and challenged a witch to tell her future despite how terrifying she seemed to her.
Within the poem although the mother’s love for her son was even beyond the reach of ‘Madonna and child’ the poem states that ‘she soon would have to forget’. The ellipsis in this quote suggests the omission of feelings which are too raw to be interpreted into words.

They are “too dark to be explored”, like Medusa. Even after Perseus son of Zeus beheaded her, Medusa still managed to possess wicked powers (Farmer, 2001). Therefore, the idea of women throughout history has always been negative.
John deals with Abigail and a dozen or so other tormented girls, as does the whole town. They cry witchery at everyone who has wronged them or defies them in any way, causing hangings of supposed “witches” that were innocent to anyone with common sense. These girls are widely believed by all, henceforth why Proctor proposes that the children are terrorizing the town; “Why do you never wonder if Parris be innocent, or Abigail? Is the accuser always holy now?...Vengeance is walking Salem...The little crazy children are jangling the keys of the kingdom, and common vengeance writes the law!” (Miller 1179). Proctor explains how these girls are frauds and have caused this whole mess and how now his wife, of the best people in Salem, is now being accused of witchcraft from a puppet (poppet) placed in their home by one of the girls.
