When she gets drunk, she considers changing her mind and marry the man she truly loves. However, she does what she was born to do: marry the rich guy which can be depicted as morally wrong. “Suddenly, with a strained sound, Daisy bent her head into the shirts and began to cry stormily.

Once her father comes in, Juliet attempts to also sever the bond, although he manages to do it all himself, threatening “for my soul, I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee” if she does not end up marrying Paris. Lastly, and most importantly, Juliet turns away from her closest confidant and friend, the Nurse. Juliet calls her a “damned old lady” and ‘wicked fiend,” stating that “thou and (her) bosom henceforth shall be twain.” Although she says this to herself, in her mind, she is breaking the last of her ties to childhood, she realises she can’t rely on her Nurse anymore. This last step is the final difference, bringing her changing loyalties into light. Juliet clearly demonstrates that they are to her
The narrator assumes forgetting her lover will make the pain better and is angry at her heart for not allowing her to forget him. She wants to forget him as soon as possible “Haste! Lest while you’re lagging” (7), once again using an exclamation point to indicate anger and hurry, wanting the pain to end. The narrator is angry at herself for not being able to forget him and letting him get to her. Dickinson may have used this poem to express her feelings about an unrequited love interest and the pain that comes with it.
The thought of revenge on a "birbaro marido" (1564) who has committed adultery after his marriage to her, entices her into believing that "los imposibles parecen / ficiles" (1566-67) (Everett W. Hesse 1997) . While she occupies herself with the thought of a secret revenge, she is overcome by the fear of the Duke 's justice and so restrains herself for the present, convinced that "... mayor fuera / mi desatino, si diera / puerta a tan loca pasión" (1573-75) (Everett W. Hesse 1997). In the second act Lope portrays Casandra in a warm and sympathetic light, Casandra tells Lucrecia that the Duke spends nights away from home, that it is all you can expect from men that the world allows it, she proclaims that he spends none of his nights with her and that she would be better off as a simple farmers wife ‘en aquella humilde esfers como en las camas reales se gozan contentos tales que no les crece el valor si los efectos del amor son en las noches iguales’(Everett W. Hesse 1997). From this it is impossible not to feel sympathy for Casandra, she has been forced into this horrible marriage by her father a man whom she loves but evidently can no longer trust. She has lost all faith in men due

They play along with her illusion saying "She's going on a vacation"(168). knowing that she is so delusional that she truly believes her own lie to distract her from knowing what is actually happening.

In A Streetcar Named Desire, the author Tennessee Williams exaggerates and dramatizes fantasy’s incapability to overcome reality through an observation of the boundary between Blanches exterior and interior conveying the theme that illusion and fantasy are often better than reality. Blanche, who hides her version of the past, alters her present and her relationship with her suitor Mitch and her sister, Stella. Blanche was surrounded by death in her past, her relatives and husband have passed away, leaving her with no legacy left to continue. The money has exhausted; the values are falling apart and she is alienated and unable to survive in the harsh reality of modern society. Throughout the novel Williams juxtaposed Blanche’s delusions with
Once Hermia and Lysander leave, Helena gives her soliloquy which reflects the mood of anger and jealousy; she also talks about how she’s going to tell Demetrius the two lover’s plans, so that Demetrius will love her again. At the end of her soliloquy, she says, “But herein mean I to enrich my pain,/to have his sight thither and back again” (1.1.250-251). Helena is saying that she wants to see Demetrius when he comes back after he continuously mistreats her. This shows that she is completely foolish and lacks
These new social norms, combined with the prohibition of alcohol resulted in a luxurious, over-the-top, and high-spending lifestyle. One character who embodies all of the characteristics of the “new woman,” is Daisy Buchanan, the wife of Tom Buchanan. In The Great Gatsby, Daisy Buchanan is portrayed by F. Scott Fitzgerald as a woman who is more concerned about her social status and wealth than her morals, but when examined closer, it is evident that she was torn by her idea of love. Daisy Buchanan is a beautiful young woman originally from Louisville, Kentucky. She is Nick Carraway’s cousin and the love of a young, fabulously rich, Jay Gatsby.
She loves the idea of Gatsby like his money and his materialistic things, but not in a relationship kind of way. Daisy is a very good actress, because she sure makes it look as if she is in love with Gatsby, but she cannot fathom to leave Tom and his money. When Daisy is told by Gatsby to say she is in love with him, she freaks out and loses it. Really, Daisy’s emotions are very unstable and she is much easier to read as a character at the end of the book. After the accident, Daisy did not bother to call Gatsby or even attend his funeral.
