This image of women constantly succeeds in attracting men. Following, right before the competition starts for Penelope’s heart, Athena “endowed her with immortal grace to hold the eyes of the Akhaians…” (18.241-245). She makes Penelope more beautiful and appealing to the suitors, so that they will be compelled to fight harder.

Her fourth husband was a bad husband and died soon after they were married.
Finally my eyes settled on a piece that was exquisite and yet so simply alluring. This painting “Defying Ignorance” by Young June Lew, was provocative but yet innocent in its display. My eyes were first drawn to the silhouette of an elegant woman 's profile, showcasing her naked refinement and femininity. Painted in a lustrous gold hue, she reaches high for what seems to be a pomegranate. After a moment I realized she is not the sole figure in the painting, there are others in the near background.
3). We can see Sammy is sexually desiring these girls by the way he takes in every detail of the girls’ physical appearance. Sammy also states, “there was nothing between the top of the suit and the top of her head, except just her, this clean bare plane of the top of her chest down the shoulder bones like a dented sheet of metal tilted in light.

Sonnet 130: My Mistress’ Eyes Are Nothing Like The Sun (1609) by William Shakespeare is nothing like the average romantic poem. Instead of boasting about his mistress’s beauty and making unrealistic comparisons he Comically appreciates her natural beauty and appearance, without the use of flattering clichés.
