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
This gesture goes completely against the first impression of arrogance and narcissism showing, showing he will do anything to help shows Elizabeth a quality she can respect. Though both the characters are well in love Mrs. Catherine de Bourgh goes out or her way to put a kibosh on the blooming relationship, ripping both Elizabeth 's family and her own character apart in effort to belittle her and force her to abandon any feelings for Darcy. After this encounter Darcy once again goes to Elizabeth despite Lady Catherine 's wishes for them to stay apart. This bold move of going against Lady Catherine witch is borderline unheard of once again proves he is not as prideful or prejudice as he originally appeared. Lady Catherine being wealthy and well known within the higher class is not often crossed or disagreed.
She is a complex character because, on the one hand, she represents the charming, sophisticated, elegant and beautiful lady that Gatsby aspires to have. On the other hand, she does not correspond to that idealized view of Gatsby; she is flighty, trifling and derisive. These “qualities” (flaws, that is say) are highly remarked when she runs away from the East Egg with her husband once Gatsby is dead. She detaches from suffering and escapes to a comfortable world of luxury, ease, and money. She assumes that any problem can be solved with money.
In the article, “Agatha Christie Biography,” it says that, “In the mid – 1930s Christie began to produce novels that bore her special manner. In them she arranged a situation that seemed highly unrealistic or unlikely, and then she placed characters, who acted for the most realistic of reason of reason, into this framework” (“Agatha Christie Biography” 4). Her mother’s death and her husband’s affair with another woman was a great influence of her macabre writing. “Agatha Christie Biography,” states, “Christie’s mother died in 1926, and Christie discovered that her husband was in love with another woman.

This song is very honest and the artist wants to release someone from her mind who hurt her, but it is not that easy. Adele uses similes such as, “never mind,
The saying goes, “Behind every great man is a great woman,” and, in some medieval romances, that great woman is scheming for her own benefit (and either for or contrary to that of the man’s). Feminine honor is tied to being a good wife, which means being sexually faithful to and obeying. In Bisclavret by Marie de France, Bisclavret’s wife betrays him both by taking away his humanity and by taking a lover, and for that, she is disfigured as her punishment. The inverse occurs in The Wedding of Sir Gawain and Dame Ragnelle: Ragnelle, disfigured by her stepmother, manipulates both Arthur and Gawain to secure her marriage with Gawain, and she is rewarded with beauty. These women are ultimately judged not by their manipulative actions but how they perform as wives through those actions.
These two evil sisters disobey their father in everything, and put on a face when he asks who loves him the most because they are simply greedy and want his land for themselves. “I am made of the self-same metal that my sister, and prize me at her worth. In my true heart I find she names my very deed of love; Only she comes too short, that I profess myself an enemy to all other joys which the most precious square of sense possesses, and find I am alone felicitate in your dear Highness' love” (Shakespeare). Here, Regan explains her true love for her father as opposed to the half-hearted love that Goneril has for him. As the two sisters fight over who loves their father more, they demonstrate to the audience that they are selfish and manipulative.
She expresses her feelings about people's attitude toward her and her husband saying "I get jealous of you, Eddie. You're doing something with your life"(68). She feels that her motherhood ties her to her husband and subjugates her to him. Motherhood also ties her to the fixed roles assigned to her by the patriarchal society. She is obligated to stay married to her husband although she feels desperate to get divorce.
She asks, “Marriage? What did it mean? Did it invariably mean happiness- did it always lead to romance- to love? (79; ch.11) The system in which, she argues, a girl had to trust her parents blindly, realizing that they would choose a good man for her, can not be beneficial for women, because the humanist issue of individual liberty is hampered if a woman is not given freedom to choose her life partner. Gopal Chandidar is her parents’ choice.
In her story ‘Morsel’ Chugtai emphasizes on how the society creates a strong pseudo need in the minds of unmarried girls for a life partner. An unmarried woman is treated as a thing of pity. A divorcee or a widow commands more respect in the society than the girl who has crossed a marriageable age. Even a successful career or a comfortable living condition does not seem to resolve the issue. Precisely, marriage seems to be the only anchor which can absolve a woman of all her woes and miseries to a safe future.
