Nevertheless, even Tea Cake, perceived to be the “kindest” of Janie’s husbands, eventually feels internal pressure to assert his dominance over her, and is led to beat her due to his own insecurity: “Before the week was over he had whipped Janie.

He just slapped her around a bit to show he was boss” (146).
“She smiled slowly and walking through her husband as if he were a ghost and shook hands with Tom, looking him flush in the eye.” We can see the disinterest she has for George by comparing her attraction towards Tom. Even beyond George and Myrtle’s relationship, Tom and Myrtle’s relationship is just a shallow. Myrtle is attracted to wealth, which is why she married George to begin with. Although she might feel some deeper level of attraction towards Tom, perhaps even love, he has no intent of loving Myrtle. She is just another mistress to Tom, and he is willing to give her the lavish lifestyle that she so desperately wants so that he can get what he wants,
He must learn to redeem himself independent of his adoration for Jane as his idealised angel. Mr. Rochester 's primary character flaws which make Jane uneasy prior to their first marriage and caused its ultimate failure are largely rooted in his Byronic qualities. His propensity to be ruled by his excessive passion and his mysterious, turbulent sexual history leads him to deceive her into nearly committing the sin of bigamy. Although he is aware that his love for Jane is genuine, he is unable to manifest this in his actions.

Othello 's race differentiates him from all other characters and makes him very self-conscious. It makes him work harder for his reputation, so he has the possibility to be regarded as equal to the white people that dominate Venice.

Othello is accused of using magic to woo his future wife, merely because of his racial disparity, and therefore is called a “pagan” (Shakespeare, 2016, Act 1 Scene 1).
