Daisy is in love with Gatsby, but as war comes Gatsby has to serve his role in it. Daisy could simply wait for Gatsby to come home after the war, but Gatsby comes from a less wealthy family. She meets Tom, the heir of wealthy family, and she marries him. They have such a large desire to keep their money and status that they use others as if they’re there to serve them. An example of this is, once again, how Daisy uses Gatsby to get away with killing Myrtle.
Catherine Earnshaw: Weak or Manipulative Catherine’s selfishness is a tragic flaw and the source of all the pain and sufferings in Wuthering heights. The villain in Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, to critics had always been Heathcliff or Ellen dean(Nelly) but nobody pays attention or rather ignores the fact that it is Catherine’s selfishness to have it all, which brings misery and misfortunes to everybody around her, and it is not limited to just Heathcliff, Edgar and Isabella but even the next generation of Hareton, Linton and Catherine. How one may ask, when she dies before she even gets know the next generation? Well, she is responsible for Heathcliff being cruel to the children as he tries to take revenge on the people Catherine had manipulated in her selfishness to gain the best of both worlds. In this paper, I will demonstrate how Heathcliff’s cruelty is a direct reaction to Catherine’s selfishness.
I think the monstrous theme to point out would be just the Wife of Bath. She was a monster within herself and had evil tactics in which her mates never picked up on but were naïve to her wrong doings. For example, “I got the best of each one, finally, By trick, or by force, or by some kind of thing” (page 113). These monstrous tactics she did to lure her mates in by getting them drunk enough to be incoherent and then lie about all of the wrong things that were done to her. Which in turn she would use to her own advantage to get what she wanted out of them.

This relates to the theme of jealousy because Mr. Putnam is so jealous of other people’s land that he accuses them of witchcraft so they lose their belongings, and he can take it. In addition, Ann Putnam is Very jealous of Rebecca Nurse. Ann Putnam thinks she is cured because she has lost so many children and Rebecca Nurse has so many. Mrs. Putnam is telling the jury “You think it God’s work you should never lose a child, nor a grandchild either, and I burry all but one?” (Miller, 152) Ann is so jealous that she accuses goody nurse of witchcraft because she thinks Mrs. Putnam put a spell on her not to have kids. Mr. Putnam later says “When Reverend Hale comes; you will proceed to look for signs of witchcraft here.” (Miller, 152) As Arthur Miller reminded you, you can see jealousy is one of the worst emotions out there bringing the worst out of people?
She has an inferiority complex and loath herself. However being the masochist that she is, she takes pleasure from being insulted by her sister who is acting as the Mistress(When Claire was insulting her, She replied “I’m starting. I’m starting to fly” Because those insults would heighten the fantasy of revenge for the mistress to be even sweeter. However in real life, her sadistic nature was curb as she could not kill the mistress just as they planned. When all of their plan failed (to poison the mistress) She escapes her reality by imagining herself as a great criminal, because by being a criminal she can be free from servitude.
The Great Gatsby:Character Analysis 1.Daisy isn 't one of the nicest characters in the book, money is a big priority for her and she lets others take the fall for her. Gatsby sums her up very well in a few words by saying “her voice is full of money..” (Fitzgerald 120) and letting everyone know she is very materialistic. Daisy is very selfish she thinks Gatsby asks too much of her when all he wants is her love. She is also a bad mother and uses her daughter, Pammy as something to show off at parties rather than taking care of her she says things to Pammy like “how do you like mother 's friends” (Fitzgerald 117). Daisy Later shows how she loves attention and playing games with Tom and Gatsby by not picking who she wants to be with, at a party she said to Gatsby “that she loved him and Tom Buchanan saw” (Fitzgerald 119).
In a women’s clothes, I cannot help but be reminded of the lustful affair that the clothes bring me”(Coetzee,118). Love can make anyone do anything, no matter how crazy. The old man took a trip to the forbidden land just to show his love for the young girl. In the end, he failed to win over her love and paid the consequence when returning to the inn. By thinking of her while enduring the torture, he is trying to convince himself it was worth it, even though we all know she never cared for him like he cared for her.
Two different worlds as it seems, Arnold and Penelope. But both want something they cannot have. Alexie writes, “ Penelope starts crying, talking about how lonely she is, and how everybody thinks her life is perfect because she’s pretty and smart and popular, but that she’s scared all the time” (108). Despite that Penelope has ‘everything’ she is dismal, and lonely and scared to let it show. Arnold on the other hand has drunk parents, and no money, he doesn’t know what it’s like to be popular, until he meets Penelope and steadily gains popularity.
Like most plays, they each have a protagonist with a so-called ‘fatal flaw,’ a lapse in character that leads to conflict within the story. For Much Ado About Nothing, the protagonist Claudio is gullible, and believes the lie that his love is unfaithful to him. In King Lear, Lear is prideful, and takes his daughter’s refusal to pour praise onto him as a personal affront. Another similarity between the two shows would be the use of misconception to further the plot. Lear believes that his daughter does not care for him and so takes away her inheritance, while Claudio believes that his betrothed has been unfaithful and so shames her on their wedding day.
