(C1) (Tr)In addition to Blanche's abnormal bathing and unhealthy obsession with young men Blanches illogical dread of light is displayed throughout the play insinuating that her (R)mental health is continuously demolishing. (C2) As the scenes of the play progress Blanche comes into contact with Mitch and is immediately drown to him.
Her desperation and all-consuming love for him became a source of idolatry in her life, and thus, an unholy endeavor in her life. For her, hell was separation from her son, and heaven was reunion with him. This is quite different from the other Ghosts’ perceptions of heaven and hell. I believe that Lewis (1973) uses this to challenge the audience to consider their own perceptions of heaven and hell, and to consider how the fall of humanity is reflected in their own
In this article, Doris Lanier argues that the pregnant girl, Jig and the father of the unborn child are not satisfied with “quality of life” because Jig connects absinthe to everything. Lanier explains why the characters feel their lives are not happy. The critic gives two reasons why she believes the characters think their lives are “destructive and have no meaning”(288).
"No." From the ballroom beneath, muffled and suffocating chords were drifting up on hot waves of air.” This comes from a conversation that Daisy and Tom have. It describes perfectly how their relationship goes. Their marriage is dysfunctional, yet they have grown too complacent in to do anything about it. They began to drift apart more and more, that is until Gatsby forced them to confront their marriage when he asked Daisy to say she never loved Tom.
You were the une who understood it all. And I started to cry… Tongue-tied by time and drugs, she smiled a funny smile… ()”. As Sonia recalls who Norma used to be and what she should have been, Sonia begins to cry because she realizes what society had robbed Norma of and forced Norma to become. Sanchez closes the story with the lines “Then I pulled myself up and turned away; never to agree again ().” because she is turning away from social injustices and never agreeing with the rigged system ever
The action of her spitting out Phil’s candy is symbolic of her final rejection of Phil. This shows she had enough of his mistreatment of herself and other people that she cannot stand the person he’s turning to. The chapter emphasizes the reversal of their personalities when he has spent the entire play not speaking to her and she’s usually the person who plays the narrative. At this point, Leah creates a watershed in her action helps intensify the tension of the plot, also accentuates her determinant of leaving Phil and the gang. Dennis Kelly uses pathetic fallacy in the setting of Leah’s monologue to describe how open she is as a person.
Friar Lawrence assists Juliet in fooling her friends and family which in the end just causes a problem so big it ends both Romeo and Juliet’s lives. This is shown when Friar Lawrence says “Tomorrow night look that thou lie alone; Let not thy nurse lie with thee in thy chamber. Take thou this vial, being then in bed, and this distilled liquor drink off;” (Romeo and Juliet. 4.1. 91-94) This plan to trick those close to Juliet into thinking she is dead is an immature and dangerous way of handling things that ultimately causes more problems than it solves.
Victor becomes heavy hearted and he worries non-stop until he becomes physically ill. Evidence of this is when he first created the “monster” and Henry came to visit, he feel ill due to paranoia and what I interpreted as depression. Elizabeth carries on until she can’t anymore. She tries to keep everyone happy until she herself breaks. Evidence of this starts in chapter three when her aunt dies and she carries on with her duties (to show her dedication) then in chapter seven when William died she breaks and gives up on trying to fix others showing she is very fragile.
It is an intrinsic battle that takes place over the course of the play, but comes to a head during the concluding moments, in which Claudio is deceived by his apprehensions of marriage into rejecting Hero, showing that perhaps he prides his honor above the love he so freely professes. Hero is placed in the uncomfortable position of being rejected by nearly everybody she cares for, necessitating that she fake her demise and be reborn as a new woman, resurrected from the grave and cleansed of the impurities she was accused of. Benedick and Beatrice have both pledged never to find love, and therefore must remove the guises behind which they labor- for indeed, both characters desire love, but hide their wish for fear of being rejected. In each instance, past beliefs must be discarded in the name of securing future happiness, which causes consternation in each individual. In the case of Benedick, he is forced to challenge his best friend to a duel in order to win the hand of his lover- an appendage of the central conflict, which is the inner battle between love and personal reservations which takes precedence over life and death (at least for the Christ-figure maiden
Iago tells her that she talks too much and that she needs to be quiet, saying, “in faith,” she speaks “too much” (2.1.104). He also blatantly abuses her when he says Emilia “[is] a foolish wife” (3.3.304). When Iago says destructive things like these to Emilia, she does not have a chance to form her own identity. She is always reminded of what Iago thinks of her and therefore internalizes those ideas. June is held back by her many failed attempts to be a prodigy.
