She is a diamond to her father and kingdom. Moreover, the author exclaims that Princess Al-Datma had “no equal in beauty and grace” (Fiero 240). In conjunction with her physical beauty, it appears that the author places the feature of being deceitful in the same category. He claims that in addition to her beauty, she “took great pleasure in ravishing the wits of the male sex” (Fiero 240). Because of these features, the author states that the men from everywhere heavily seek after her, which supports the idea that the feature of deceitfulness was appealing to the author.

Kate Chopin meant that scene to reflect how men thought that women's actions that weren't within the norm were irrational, even though he could do the same action and nobody would question his sanity. His hypocrisy was another demonstration of the treatment of women at this time in history. Personally, I felt sympathy for Edma Pontellier because was married to such a sexist and hypocritical man, but with consideration to the time period it can be understood why Kate Chopin would write such a radical novel. In my opinion, the purpose of this scene, and novel as a whole, was not meant for future generation to look back and criticize the society but rather a plead for change within her
While defying society's standards Edna Pontellier proved how different she was from Adèle. Leonce displays his frustration with how his wife, Edna, treats him, “He thought it very discouraging that his wife, who was the sole object of his existence, evinced so little interest in things which concerned him, and valued so little his conversation” (Chopin 6). Encircling the Pontelliers’ marriage was dissatisfaction due to Edna’s rejection of her duties as a mother and wife. Although Adèle has a disconnection with Edna’s personality she still displays friendliness while staying true to her own nature. Adèle is the epitome of what society considers an ideal woman, which helps show how different she is from Edna, “Many of them were delicious in the role; one of them was the embodiment of every womanly grace and charm.
However, when studied by the scientist, they are insensitive and patronizing to the subjects of their research. They say, “Our job is not to censure, but to understand” (Atwood 376). Frankly, these scientists do not care about the abuse women of the Gileadean society were put through, nor do they condemn Gilead for doing so. In fact they find it rather amusing, when a scientist mentions the underground femaleroad he parodies it and refers to it as the underground frailroad, evoking laughter from the crowd. It is ironic because this is the exact behavior Atwood warns us against.
Torvald is a victim of his society making him incapable of being the antagonist. Ibsen wrote about the inequalities of men and women within the Victorian age. He focused on the disparity between how women are viewed in comparison to men. However, this does not make the man immediately the oppressor. For example, within the play Torvald says, “I would gladly work night and day for you, Nora- bear sorrow and want for your sake.
Allie and kids symbolize the “catching”.The cliff symbolizes adulthood .Holden believes that adults are all phonies (which is hypocritical of him because even Though Holden constantly talks about other people being phony he is himself often phony. At various times in the novel, he tells pointless lies, claims to like or agree with things he hates, goes out with girls he doesn 't like, all to try to feel less lonely and left out).In chapter 17 Holden says “Then, just to show you how crazy I am, when we were coming out of this big clinch, I told her I loved her and all. It was a lie, of course, but the thing is, I meant it when I said it. I 'm crazy. I swear to God I am”.
The definition of a sympathetic character is one whom the writer expects the reader to identify with and care about, though not necessarily admire. In the novel, Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck, Curley’s wife, a main character in the book is blatantly portrayed as an unsympathetic character. This is because they only see her through the men's eyes, who only see her as a tiresome object, owned by her husband. Steinbeck’s portrayal of Curley’s wife is unfair and misogynistic because he only displays her as unintelligent and promiscuous, never has a character have a turning point where they realize she’s more than an object, and he never reveals her true name. The first reason that Steinbeck's portrayal of Curley’s wife is unfair is that he never gives Curley any redeeming personality traits, he only depicts her as unintelligent and promiscuous.
