Her over active imagination, anxiety, and aggression get her into trouble.
The Friar thought that marrying the two kids of the feuding houses would help put an end to their parents' fight, "Thy love did read by rote, that could not spell. But come young waverer, come go with me. In one respect I'll thy assistant be; For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households' rancor to pure love." (Act 2). In this quote, the Friar is thinking that if this couple is to be wed, then the feuding families will put down their swords and pick up champagne bottles instead.
Her initial manipulation attempts are unsuccessful, but Marie continues: “She harassed and bedeviled him so, / that he had no choice but to tell her” (lines 87-88). The use of “harassed and bedeviled” instantly casts his wife’s insistence as suspicious and malicious. Marie confirms the suspicions when the wife schemes with a knight who loved her to get rid of Bisclavret. Even though “she’d never loved [the knight] at all,” the wife offers herself to him in return for stealing Bisclavret’s clothes (line 107). “So Bisclavret was betrayed, / ruined by his own wife” (line 125-126, emphasis added).
In Ovid’s Metamorphoses many of the women are portrayed in a lesser light in comparison to the males. In this example, Scylla has just pulled out her father’s magical purple hair that keeps their country safe from intruders. Her infatuation with King Minos has led her to betray her family and her people which makes her seem irrational. The imagery created from these lines paints a picture of a weak, illogical woman who will do anything for a male to return her love. Scylla seems almost insane for going against her father who has been protecting their people for King Minos that she has never met.

Having seen this symbolism, one might wonder what else the slipper could symbolize. The glass slipper symbolizes the hardships that Cinderella goes through and that no matter what weight she is put under she never breaks. There is never a point in any story where Cinderella is not kind. Even in Grimm where her stepsisters get their eyes pecked out, it was not Cinderella who did it. It was her mother’s soul seeking vengeance for the wrongdoings of the sisters.
/ Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee” (3.5. 214-215). Lady Capulet did not even try to comfort Juliet or listen to her reasoning behind not wanting to marry Paris, rather she does not care and moves on. Juliet then had to confront the Nurse for some motherly advice pleading, “Comfort me; counsel me” (3.5. 220).
There is a pivotal change in her entire attitude, from the moment she begins to question her moral ambiguity which takes place after she comes to terms with her own emotions which she can no longer push aside, ultimately leading to betrayal of herself. Previous to her first plotting of evil, Lady Macbeth is seen as a morally righteous and sane person who simply has a well off life with her husband. However, she turns completely opposite from the greed she acquires within herself wanting her husband to become king. A now selfish and greed hungry Lady Macbeth, plans and succeeds in the murder of Duncan, the first person in the way of Macbeth’s thrown. The act of taking someone’s life proves further all of her moral
Although some people will evaluate others based on their appearance, we should not follow their footstep since it is a superficial behavior. Furthermore, outer beauty does not equal to inner beauty that we should not use our first sight to judge others as the outcome may be the opposite. The author’s depiction of Cinderella’s pleasant personality: “The poor girl [Cinderella] bore it all patiently, and dared not tell her father, who would have scolded her; for his wife governed him entirely” (1). Perrault talks how Cinderella forbear her hardness without telling anyone. We can notice that how she does not want anyone to implicate into this event and avert anything is getting complicated.
