Within the jungles of the Congo, Kurtz experienced a power over the African men that he cannot receive in the civilized nature of Europe. The native offered “unspeakable rites” and sacrifices for Kurtz and worshipped him.
She thought otherwise. “they became so insistent that she remembered the merits of Federigo and his last act of generosity—that is, to have killed such a falcon to do her honor”(Musa).

For instance, Marriage is one of the strongest connections between two individuals within society, the combination of man and woman makes mankind complete. However, is this relationship just as strong as the way it looks?

The story is about a rich man, Francis Macomber, and his beautiful wife Margot, who are on safari in Africa and traveling with the aid of a seasoned hunter, Robert Wilson.

How 'd you like that?” curley 's wife also spends her days hounded by her mean-spirited husband with her attempts to reach out to the other men backfiring, ultimately leading to her death when she desperately reaches out to Lennie saying “Why can 't I talk to you? I never get to talk to nobody. I get awful lonely."

Slim even states that ‘a guy goes nuts if he ain’t got nobody’.
[the old waiter] as well as many of Hemingway’s other fictional heroes discover that by not thinking they can avoid the emotional pain associated with those thoughts” (1996:203); that is why the man needs a café open late at night. “A Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” is described as a tale which definitely questions morality. There is Francis who is actually the weakest from the characters. His wife is the one who want to dictate rules. Their marriage is a perfect example of a relation-ship without proper communication.
Francis is a rich man whom, by society, is considered a coward. Margot Macomber, the wife of Francis Macomber, is a gold digger who despises her husband due to his lack of heroism and is embarrassed to be married to him. Robert Wilson, the guide for their African safari is a womanizer who sleeps with the wives of his clients. Margot and Francis are only together because they need each other, not by love “They had a sound basis of union. Margot was too beautiful for Macomber to divorce her and Macomber had too much money for Margot ever to leave him.”(Hemingway, 11) Through my extensive reading of this story revelations of point of view, conflict, and symbolism are present to reveal the hidden meaning of each element held in this story.

Tom, the wife of Daisy Buchanan, who is a cheating husband, uses money to cover his mistakes, and has had an affair with Myrtle Wilson, who is his mistress. In the, " The Great Gatsby", tells a story from the 1920 's, how everyone has no morals and all they cared about was themselves.

"(Fitzgerald, 179).
For instance she wouldn 't marry the man she loved because he was poor, she practically forced herself to marry a man because of his fortune, she then became unfaithful to her husband because her past lover now had a great amount of wealth. Daisy 's desire for wealth lead her to plague her relationships, and the poor decisions she made were all caused to feed her greed. Daisy’s appetite for wealth came from her surroundings when growing up. She had all she ever needed and more, because of this, it carried out into her adulthood. And rather than a luxury it became a necessity.
