The repetition suggests how life and status are dictated by society and the need for such hierarchies to perhaps be shaken. Roy’s narrator also uses repetition, but to a rather different impact, “It was Velutha” (Roy, 36) being a constant repetition to drill the idea of dependency the family had on him, and also to emphasize the guilt and atrocity of their treatment towards him simply because of caste status. Roy’s narrator is seen to use devices to being across the many horrors experienced by the family, especially the twins. Capitalisation of certain words and phrases such as “the Inevitable
Molière shows the negative and adverse consequences that can arise when Tartuffe, an imposter, enters a household and ruins the family dynamic present in it before his arrival. From the very moment Tartuffe appears he interfers with the concept of the family as as a stable unit, thus undermining the family structure. Orgon, the household of the family, puts him before his family, “But he’s quite lost his senses since he fell Beneath Tartuffe’s infatuating spell He calls him brother, and loves him as his life Preferring him to mother, child, or
Whereas Frankenstein does not properly value the domestic affection he is given until it is violently taken from him, his creation learns that this is what values most in life and yet is not able to gain this affection from others. Francis Bacon says in his essay Of Friendship “I have given the rule, where a man cannot fitly play his own part; if he have not a friend, he may quit the stage”. Shelley highlights the need for a sense of belonging and companionship by letting both her main figures suffer the pain of not having this need fulfilled and, in consequence, they both “quit the stage” (Bacon) and turn their backs on humanity. Social isolation, although through different circumstances, was the predominant cause for both Frankenstein and his creature’s demise. Even Percy Bysshe Shelley, Mary Shelley’s husband, wrote in his preface to Frankenstein about the “amiableness of domestic affection” (Shelley 9).
In addition to the meaning the veil holds for the congregation and for the minister, it is important to consider the effect of the veil on the relationship between the two. Hawthorne seems to be saying that the minister’s perception of the sin in all people puts up a barrier between himself and everyone else and ruins his life. At first the veil causes confusion among the people in the minister 's congregation. They speculate that he had developed some mental issue, that his eyes could not handle the light, or that it was simply a random impulse. This confusion soon turns to great fear and horror.

These speeches show the evolution of internal struggle within the protagonist, as he ultimately questions his position in life, as well as death. Due to the countless interpretations to these main soliloquies, Hamlet continues to demand respect
The anguish desolation that Hamlet feels is epitomized through the juxtaposition of his movement; grand sweeping gestures to his jerky and quick accusatory gaze/ arm. Men are prisoners of their appetites, helpless to achieve the goodness so mockingly revealed by their philosophic quest for the ideal. Therefore he cannot trust others as he views humanity to be flawed and thus he perceives all man and women to be corrupt which was a common view during this period due to the protestant reformation and the totalitarian state of England. Hamlet realises that

This breeds a sense of foreboding and suspense in the reader to discover why Patrick is behaving as such. Finally, Dahl’s language choices are reflected in ‘she moved uneasily’. The phrase ‘moved uneasily’ creates suspense as we the readers are alerted to Mary’s agitation while the phrase ‘large eyes watching’ implies Mary is like prey that is observing its predator, as she seems to see Patrick as a threat. This creates suspense as the atmosphere has suddenly shifted from a calm one to a tense one and Mary, who was previously seen as the calm housewife seems precarious and wary while Patrick is given an ominous
So family plays manifest an aggressive and rebellious impulse against the father who often submits an affirmative impulse toward his family. ‘O’Neill seems to have a personal desire to work out his feelings of hostility and to understand his need to escape from the dominating influence, from the awe and the overwhelming admiration for his father, James O’Neill’(Weissman,1957: 436). O’Neill uses the strong character of father to assist the plotting of his plays who has a very definite relationship to his family. Meanwhile, “mother is considered as a problematic a question, as the nature of existence. Recently theoretical discussions, concerning with the nature of language and its relationship to gender, indicate that the representation of woman is always
