For example, onomatopoeia is used in “Bang”, which is the sound of both a “red balloon bursting” and Havisham stabbing at her wedding cake after she receives the message from her ex-fiance. This shows how she is both heart-broken and furious due to her lover’s betrayal and all the shame he gave to her. In addition, the “Bang” can also be when Havisham wakes up from her dreams, with long-gone memories of her lover. In addition, the poet opens by describing Havisham’s ex-fiance, who deceived her completely, as “beloved sweetheart bastard”. This oxymoron is used, and this causes an extreme confusion - strong fragments are used to express Havisham’s anger.

She first shows the quality of selfishness by purchasing a dress with money which her husband “ had set aside just that amount to buy a rifle” (Maupassant 222). Mathilde was so worried about buying a dress she didn’t even think about her husband. She proves herself to be unsatisfied when she is allowed to pick out some jewelry from her wealthy friend, but she declines the jewelry and asks “‘ haven’t you something else?’”(Maupassant 225).
Romeo 's nonexistent communication with Rosalind is a sign he is merely infatuated with her external appearance, “Oh, she is rich in beauty, only poor That when she dies, with beauty dies her store” (1.1.215-16). One of the attributes of narcissism is the “love of or sexual desire for one 's own body” (Merriam-Webster 824).

Rosalind is Romeo 's “Lady” and spiritual guide to his “religious ecstasy.” In a sense, his “love” for Rosalind 's beauty is a representation of his addiction for beautiful objects.
