John “had recently married a wife whom he loved more than his life” (Chaucer, “The Miller’s Tale” 35-36). Since this carpenter is the most sentimentally involved with Alisoun, he ends up the most betrayed and embarrassed by her disloyalty. Conversely, Alisoun doesn’t give Absolom any reassurance that his infatuation is requited, so he does not fall into the trap of falling for her. Consequently, Absolom leaves the situation feeling rejected, but not truly dejected because his connection with Alisoun was only in his dreams. Meanwhile, Nicholas begs her for sex by yelling “sweetheart, love me right away or I’ll die, so help me God!”

Edward Rochester is a talented man; what he lacks in beauty he makes up for in other areas. Jane describes Rochester’s appearance as having “stern features and a heavy brow; his eyes and eyebrows looked ireful and thwarted” (Bronte 214). Even though Jane is no beauty herself, she still critiques others appearance, but she does not judge them for it.

Rosamond is the daughter of a factory owner who is “very charming” and has “radiant vivacity” (Bronte 704-705). She proves to be the only exception to Bronte’s stereotype of the inverse relationship to beauty and personality.

This goal described by Bronte is one that the women in the novel strive for, but will never accomplish. St. John, Jane’s cousin, feels a strong passion for Jane and tortures himself for feeling that way.
Here, Beloved’s captivating power mirrors that of slavery. Just like in his earlier life, Paul D feels humiliated by his fundamental lack of power or control, and he is unable to appear strong or masculine even to the woman he loves. Paul D also recognizes that it is not Beloved’s sexual allure in itself that is so devastating, but the oppressive institution of her power as a whole. Furthermore, he brings up the idea that her superficial image of a “sweet young girl” is deceptive, and that it hides something more sinister (149). At the climax of her novel, Morrison employs similar imagery to emphasize this captivating, disturbing energy that Beloved conceals through her appearance.

Elizabeth half ironically states that Mr. Darcy suffers from no defect. This interaction is a prime example of how both characters each still wear their pride and prejudices assumptions on their sleeves. Elizabeth's convection in herself causes Darcy to continue to view her in a different light. Elizabeth strives to maintain the independence of her mind, while other girls might have been at pains to humor Mr. Darcy and endorse whatever opinion he might have expressed. However, Elizabeth does not humor Darcy thus figuratively draws him closer to
This subgenre of Romantic Literature uses emotion as a technique to create metaphorical gender coding. By presenting overflowing emotions as a living or animated experience, characters in a Gothic work are given an additional layer of traits. According to Nicola Trott, the sublime is associated with masculinity by providing massive strength and size that induces terror. Sublimity creates terror through obscurity and uncertainty of potentially, irrationally terrible situations, such as murder or rape.

I do not agree with Ryder's assessment of Abigail. Initially, I think Abigail is selfish and is doing everything for herself so that she can have John Proctor. Abigail says, specifically, "oh, I marvel how such a strong man may let such a sickly wife be -." The quote supports what I think because Abigail wants John. Another one is, she started blaming other people to keep from getting whipped.
Abby does not want people thinking ill of her nor does she want to get in trouble so the obvious answer to her is to distract everyone and have them look away from her. While they are all focusing on a “lesser’ person they begin to forget about what she is being accused of. While blaming innocent people, she, herself, is being freed. Getting the help of others to be included in lies help fuel the doubt in others because there is an alibi. Talking to the troop girls that were at Dabney 2 the scene with her, Abby tells them “We danced and Tituba conjured Ruth Putnam's dead sisters.
