Furthermore, Mr. Rochester’s passion draws insecurity for thinking about the mad woman he keeps hidden away, yet Brontё implies Jane being the shining light to a new passion. Jane provides Mr. Rochester with the security of a well balanced future as his passion conflicts “the oath shall be kept” (Brontё 296). Nevertheless, Brontё illustrates how Mr. Rochester’s passion transfers from the embarrassment of Bertha to the proclamation of devotion to Jane. The passion for Bertha differentiates that for Jane, as Mr. Rochester hides Bertha from the public, but he flaunts his infatuation with Jane. Renewal of Mr. Rochester’s passion extracts from Brontё metaphorically “depicts Jane throwing the waters of baptism-- spiritual rebirth-- upon Rochester” (Lamonaca 4).
Shiflet teach her a nickname commonly used between spouses. She does not want her daughter to learn how to speak; she wants Mr. Shiflet to marry her. On a more intuitive level, beyond the actions of these grotesque characters, O’Conner plants hints about what connotations to connect with Lucynell and Mr. Shiflet. The moon that hangs in the sky during the first converse between Lucynell and Mr. Shiflet is described as “a fat yellow moon.” The moon is hiding its true form by pretending to be something radiant and bright like the sun. The moon is a fake, much like the characters in the story, much like the people in society.
In Macbeth, Wuthering Heights, and My Last Duchess, the writers present themes of destructive love between the lovers through the desires of female characters. Therefore in this research paper there will be evidence explaining how destructive love is shown through emotional abuse, mind games, and physical abuse from the female characters towards the males. In the imaginative writings what do the women do to emotionally defile their men? “Nor time, nor place, did then adhere, and yet you would make both: they have made themselves, and that their fitness now does unmake you.”(Macbeth 1.7.51-54) In that statement made by Lady Macbeth, it shows one of the ways she is emotionally damaging her husband. Another example is “I have given suck, and you know how tender ‘tis to love the babe that milks me; I would, while it was smiling in my face, have pluck’d nipple from his boneless gums, and dash’d the brains out.”(Macbeth 1.7.54-58) in which Lady Macbeth emotionally ruins him by talking about physically harming their baby boy.
The darkness that mother brings infects the environment making the speaker sad. However, the moon also carries “the first few stars,” showing that in the midst of darkness their is a glimpse of light. Although the speaker is always left sad when mother visits, the speaker also feels a little love that a mother rightfully possess. The moon came only to visit with no intention to stay. It comes and go and is headed to the “northern sky”.
Curley’s wife is portrayed to be a “tart”, someone who is always flirting with other people. When she is first introduced, Steinbeck writes “ The rectangle of sunshine in the doorway was cut off”, which gives the impression that Curley’s wife is ominous and perilous for Lennie and George. The imagery implies that Curley’s wife is the darkness in their lives and that she is the obstacle in the journey of accomplishing the American Dream. During the climax of Steinbeck’s novella, he writes “ The light was growing soft now” represents the slow release of her soul and that darkness slowly filling the barn and their lives. It also indicates the gradual discharge of hope and belief from the minds of Lennie, George and Candy.
She desperately tries to get as far as she could from Minx but Minx tries all possible ways to develop a closer relationship with her by using implied threats in order to tighten her web around her. While Minx enjoys the sexual encounters, Amrita feels guilty and entrapped.

Minx not only wins the sympathy of Amrita but also wins the favor of Amrita’s parents by promising to take good care of their
“His Coy Mistress” by Annie Finch and “His Coy Mistress to Mr. Marvell” by A.D. Hope are both well-known response poems to the infamous poem, “To His Coy Mistress” by Andrew Marvell. “To His Coy Mistress” displays Marvell’s desire for some unnamed “mistress” to give him her virginity through topics such as seduction and time. These response poems are Hope’s and Finch’s replies as women or more particularly “a mistress” to Marvell’s request. In comparison to Marvell’s “To His Coy Mistress”, these response poems convey two different viewpoints from the mistress and in my reasoned opinion, provide a deeper scope to the objectification and mistreatment of women in poetry. This can be seen through evidence and supported by exposing the overall attitude of the speakers, issues of gender in each work, each poem’s language, the overall tone of each work, the form of each poem, and through each speaker’s responses to “Big Famous Lines” presented in “To His Coy Mistress”.
This is actually the plight of Baram Alkali’s case in Personal Angle. According to her, a woman may react by self-pity and tears followed by a hardness to love as is Zaria’s reaction, sentimental, passive almost bordering on martyrdom. A wife may immerse herself in the hurt and pain of unrequited and neglected love leading to psychosis as is the case with Zaria. She demonstrates her guts and feminine will power to make a break of it and claim back her name and identity. Even after her separation from her husband, Alhaji Teller lusts hopelessly after her but she refuses to give in preferring to maintain her dignity.
Here, Yeats attempts to preempt a shift in gender roles and the consequence this may have on cultural norms in society. Yeats presents to his readers “inherited generic norms of love poetry against feminist objections and demands” through the male voice Robartes (Cullingford, 92). Yeats does this through representing a dialogue between the male and his traditional values and the progressive feminist, highlighting their differences in opinion. The poem begins with the Robartes stating that a woman is most “wise” when she is “plain”, and free of any opinion (Albright, 223). The revolutionary aspect of this poem is demonstrated by the woman who questions Robartes saying “May I not put myself to college” (Albright, 223).
The Love Contest is about the daughters. They participate with the lavish praise that is being given to Liar. It is the father daughter relationship. Love is a conflict by having love for a father, but they have
