Leggatt emphasizes on Identity of Lear, There is no identity for Lear because of what he did wrong against Cordelia, Cordelia 's “nothing” which is made him is raging and suffering. in addition to an error decision of divided the Kingdom as a result of his grave mistakes by ignoring his fate in folly behavior thus, Lear asking.

She argues that the characters in Pride and Prejudice are defeatist, ignorant, and, perpetually chained to each other. This stance is troubling, however, because it overlooks the meaningful aspects of Jane Austen’s work, namely the transformation of Darcy and Elizabeth’s relationship. The first point is that “there is no degree of virtue --or talent or beauty--that a good dose of arrogance cannot overwhelm and turn into something bitter and repulsive” (Puterbaugh 1). This is certainly true when it comes to the likes of Mr. Collins, with his supremely conceited attitude. Take, for example, what he spoke to the beautiful Elizabeth on the proposition of engagement.
Due to his indecisiveness and lack of a cemented identity, The Namesake’s Gogol takes on Moushumi 's more clearly defined way of life, ultimately resulting in Gogol being left lonely and hopeless following the divorce. Building itself heavily on the concepts of giving Gogol a sense of identity and a shared need for security, their marriage lacks a mutual input of care and connection. Time after time in his romantic life, from Ruth to Maxine, Gogol has stolen everything about their culture to grant him a sense of meaning. Jhumpa Lahiri shows the very one sided nature of the marriage by providing proof that Moushumi and Gogol focus on filling one another’s emptiness, rather than creating a true connection. Unlike both of their previous relationships, this one stems from an arranged date by Gogol’s mother Ashima.
In these chapters, for example, jane’s disappointment in love is juxtaposed with Charlotte’s marriage. Notice how neither situation fits with Elizabeth’s idealistic view of life. Elizabeth belive that people should marry for love, not security, and has been very vocal on the subject. When faced with the reality of Jane’s broken heart and Charlotte’s practically, Elizabeth respond with anger and resentment, unwilling to excuse or understand actions that deviate so greatly from her belief system. This attitude, especially toward Charlotte, is a sign of Elizabeth immaturity and naiveté at this point in the book.
The definition of sociopathy, bases on, “Antisocial personality disorder is characterized by a lack of regard for the moral or legal standards in the local culture.” (McAfee, 2003). Also encompassing behaviors such as their manipulative nature, lack of participation in illicit matters, reduced or no emotions attached to actions, recurring guilt, promiscuity, and parasitic conducts, develop an understanding of the character. (Valverde, G., 2017). The quote, associated to her denial of her knowledge of who Gatsby is, with whom she maintains an otiose sexual relationship, serves to depict the manipulation present and to further depict hypocritical attitudes in a critique to aristocratic
The characterization of Offred shows us that she goes from obedient to careless towards the rules due to her discriminating experience in the Republic of Gilead. The irony in the fact that even the higher ups of the regime neglect the rules shows that a government which restricts the people's freedom can not make each and every person loyal to the rules. The story of Moira told in the flashback displays her desperate need to escape and willingness to do anything to accomplish just that due to the unbearable conditions present in Gilead. When a person's actions are restricted and they are forced to follow something they don't agree with, it is only a matter of time before they start to act remiss of what is holding them back from true
Katherine Boo through this book openly projects her biases through the imaginative representation of the lives of people in India. She is ignorant of India’s past and in her portrait of concurrent situations in India, she is openly dishonest .Boo claims that this book is her first hand account of the condition of people of India’s slum but this cannot be fully relied as it is not true representation of real
she is described as an "it" and Gatsby then realises that he can 't repeat the past with Daisy and that his obsessive longing for her was a waste of time. I believe that this pessimistic feeling was a factor in his volatility towards Tom in the Plaza. Similarly in "Foster", Mildred like a predator, pounced on the innocent protagonist and questioned the Kinsella 's personal business such as
Adela's allegation against Aziz causes racial tensions hidden under the hypocritical coat of respectability of imperial institutions come out in the open. On a more complex level, the Marabar caves and their 'echo' are not just a setting, but have metaphorical implications that seem to work on a number of levels and some of these levels are revealed in the way they affect Mrs. Moore. The Caves are dark, small and without life, suggesting nothing in themselves but objective eternity. In a sense this could mean more like a frightening void than the infinite potential out of which all creation arises; final nothingness that is
“The poem is about a consciousness full of fragments of past significance which haunt it like ghosts, perplexing,confusing,perhaps holding out the hope of somethinh to pursue”(Scottfield ,130). The poem is not the romanticisation of the past but the poet wants us to feel the loss of intensity of life which is culturallly and traditionally barren .There is a decay of faith and religion and men has lost passion and emotion which has made the society a unfit place to live as everything has become mechanical. Even sex relationship does not give any pleasure sex is commmercialised as it is very evident in the relationship between typist and clerk. Every emotion has become artifical and Eliot has compared humans to animals. Lust and sexuality are dominating men’s life
