From the beginning Stanley has doubted Blanche, this is seen as he went through Blanche's things with Stella, questioning her belongings, “has she got this stuff out of teacher's pay?”(2.33). Stanley continues to impose his reality onto Blanche, which causes her more anxiety relying more and more on herself to create more of an illusion by creating an admirer for herself, saying that she ended it with Mitch because she does not deserve “deliberate cruelty”, and crating this alter ego for herself as being pure. While Stella is in the hospital, he and Blanche are left alone for the night as she continues bragging about her admiration coming from Sheep Hunt Leigh and how she just got a wire from him. Stanley catches her in her life, finally tearing apart Blanche's illusions. Although Stanley has been a threat to her through his suspicion and empowering masculinity over her, the last scene is where he finally takes final control over her, or symbolically where reality has a final triumph over her illusions.
In the beginning of the work, the reader is exposed to Blanche’s dishonest personality when she lies about drinking alcohol. As the play progresses it becomes more apparent that Blanche is hiding something. For example, Blanche does not go into great detail when Stanley asks about the letters in her trunk and her sumptuous outfits. Stanley catches on to Blanche’s secrets when a friend of his tells him about Blanche’s affairs at the Flamingo Hotel. Upon Blanche’s confrontation with Stanley, she denies all evidence against her and lies to conceal the truth.

Lady Macbeth reprimands Macbeth’s manhood and his courage in order to persuade Macbeth into accompanying her with the task of King Duncan’s murder. Originally, Macbeth decides against the murder and betrayal of King Duncan, however when he orders Lady Macbeth to “proceed no farther in this business” (I.vii.33), she is utterly appalled. Moreover, Lady Macbeth challenges Macbeth’s courage and calls him a coward, who would give up “the ornament of his life” (I.vii.45) due to his gutless nature.

Mel being a cardiologist and attending “five years in a seminary” appears to represent the authority figure in the matter of love and can not view love as being anything but “spiritual love.” Despite Terri repetitively trying to convince him that her previous husband’s acts were his “own way of loving her” As time progresses further, however, Mel’s subtle displays begin to turn into signs of hostility towards others, including Terri. While debating on whether he should call his children, for fear that his ex-wife Marjorie will answer, Mel explains his deep desire that she gets “stung to death by a swarm of fucking bees” ( Carver, 153). While doing so he also turns “his fingers into bees and buzzes them at Terri’s throat” (Carver, 153). Although he stated that the bees would be intended for Marjorie, it seems strange to be performing this act towards Terri unless he is harboring some feeling of dislike for her as well. With the amount of alcohol consumed and the before mentioned subtlety bitter remarks towards one another, it is possible that Mel was viewing Terri as some form of continuation of Marjorie.
After his accusations, Oedipus mocked Teiresias for his blindness, and told him to leave the palace as Oedipus had grown tired of him. Oedipus’s imperfect nature stopped him from learning the truth from Teiresias before it was too late, and lead to great loss at the end of the play. Throughout the story of Oedipus the King, the imperfectly noble nature of Oedipus is displayed for all to learn from. His temperamental and overzealous nature made him argumentative and combative when Teiresias tried to tell him the truth about the murder, causing Oedipus to accuse his good friend Creon of being a usurper. The consequence of Oedipus’s imperfect noble nature was his eventual blindness and exile from the place he loved and cared for the
Following the release of the movie and the criticism that N.W.A. biopic leaves out the history of abused women, many of the domestic abuse victims are speaking up of the past, and alleging that their stories are left out of the movie.

Singer Michel 'le accused him of physical abuse when they were together as a couple, but took no steps to initiate legal action. Speaking to The Times she said, "I 've been talking about my abuse for many, many years, but it has not gotten any ears until now."
I don’ like Curley.” (pg. 89 Steinbeck) With this Curley 's wife attempts to explain for the first time her unhappy marriage to Curley. In The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton Cherry Valance 's relationship with Bob is portrayed similarly: Bob is always drinking and Cherry hates Bob 's personality and impulsive actions, but she seems too scared to break up with him because she might lose her status in the gang. In both books the characters need to obtain a certain status which prevents them from expressing their feeling towards each other and, as a result, they end up indulging superficial
Daisy cries because the man who once looked at her like she was a person and indispensable is now trying to buy her, objectifying her once more in a way she never expected him to. Daisy loves the beauty of the shirts but hates what they mean for her. She has exhausted her ability to rebel against a world that expects her to be demeaned in this way, and cannot articulate her feelings. She justifies her tears with the values of materialism that have been forced upon her, seeing how she is treated as an object herself. The objectification of Daisy is complete when Gatsby tells Nick, “Her voice is full of money,” (127) towards the end of the novel.
He berates his wife for keeping such a cold and judgeful disposition, as if he is free of qualms. In fact, John was flirting with Abigail in the first act. John reprimands Elizabeth for playing God, when he does the same to the community. What makes John’s vicious and uncalled for assertion even more distasteful, is the fact that he says he should have “roared” Elizabeth down when she first accused him. Again, John seems to forget that he is the transgressor.
