character Montfleury in the play Cyrano de Bergerac being a hit with Roxanne. Whenever I looked at Tom, I thought of how Cyrano described Montfleury to his friend Le Bret as “.. That Silenus who cannot hold his belly in his arms, Still dreams of being sweetly dangerous among the women...” Tom had the fewest redeeming qualities of all of the Tech Reps. I couldn’t imagine an unpaid female to whom Tom “came-on” who would not laugh him out of the room. Tom was all mouth. And as for his false bravado, I was certain that he would soil himself in a second if something happened that made him think his life was in any danger.

Whereas Frankenstein does not properly value the domestic affection he is given until it is violently taken from him, his creation learns that this is what values most in life and yet is not able to gain this affection from others. Francis Bacon says in his essay Of Friendship “I have given the rule, where a man cannot fitly play his own part; if he have not a friend, he may quit the stage”. Shelley highlights the need for a sense of belonging and companionship by letting both her main figures suffer the pain of not having this need fulfilled and, in consequence, they both “quit the stage” (Bacon) and turn their backs on humanity. Social isolation, although through different circumstances, was the predominant cause for both Frankenstein and his creature’s demise. Even Percy Bysshe Shelley, Mary Shelley’s husband, wrote in his preface to Frankenstein about the “amiableness of domestic affection” (Shelley 9).

Esperanza still thinks this sexual experience is glamorous, and she doesn’t connect Sally’s horrible father with Sally’s need to escape. Sally does inspire a feeling of protectiveness in Esperanza, as she tries to shelter Sally from pain and the outside world – but it turns out that this is the same sentiment that paradoxically and tragically leads her father to beat her. Summary Sally admits that her father hits her, but she says that he never hits her hard. She comes to school bruised and scarred and says that she fell, but everyone knows

From the depictions of actions and attributes of the characters, themes, and plot, audiences can obviously pluck out the cliche. When narrowed down, the cliche in Of Mice and Men is a story about a man, George, struggling to decide whether he should pursue aspirations or abandon completely. Since the beginning, readers acknowledged the fact that George’s attitude was directed in an acidic manner towards Lennie. Repeatedly, in the first chapter, George bring up a variation of “I got you! You can’t keep a job and you lose me ever’ job I get” (Steinback 12)!
Although this could be argued as a subtle compliment, although throughout the play this slowly progresses. This reaches a climax when he comes home intoxicated which shows that he expressed his true feelings towards Catherine, “He reaches out suddenly, draws her to him, and as she strives to free herself he kisses her on the mouth.” From the stage directions we can see that Catherine strives to be free which can be argued that she is fighting due to unwanted admiration. This scene was extremely uncomfortable for the audience to view due to realization of Eddie being her uncle. Despite many warnings from Beatrice and Alfieri, Eddie’s blindness is shown as he ignores their concerns. This was considered as a huge turning point in the play, as the action moves towards catastrophe, as his relationship with Catherine plunges from happiness to misery and culminates in his unnecessary
