“Falling too fast only ends you up with love that won’t last” (Cecily Morgan). In Act Two, Scene Two of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Juliet expresses her initial feelings about her love for Romeo after their first encounter at the Capulets’ party. The purpose of Juliet’s monologue is to convey that love changes an individual’s character and the conception of love at first sight is questionable. Love is a powerful idea that can sway personalities in order to capture the attention of prospective mates. For example, Juliet tells Romeo how her words from earlier that night cause her to blush and she says that she will gladly, “dwell on form… deny / What I have spoke:
(Deal 100). The author uses language in this passage to show that Tom wanted to go the movies, but feels that this project is more important. In the quote, he “resists for a moment”, this shows the conscious choice that Tom made to stay at home. He also realizes that as the “door opening narrows”, so does the opportunity for him to have a nice night with his wife. When the door opening narrows a current of “warm air rushed past him”.
She rather found herself angry at imaginary people who might try to criticize” (Hurston 125). Unlike with previous marriages, she actually worried about Tea Cake and would be willing to protect him. The happy feelings that Tea Cake had given Janie are told after his death. When Janie is thinking of Tea Cake, the book explains that “The kiss of his memory made pictures of love and light against the wall. Here was peace” (Hurston 193).
Through terms of contrast, Shakespeare characterizes Juliet as a loving, sweet, and passionate girl. Juliet is waiting for her wedding night and says, “... And learn me how to lose a winning match” (3.2.12). The juxtaposition talks about how Juliet is nervous, but excited about losing her virginity to Romeo the love of her life. Juliet found out that Romeo killed
Moreover, the Nurse also plays a vital role in Romeo and Juliet as a result of her comic relief all throughout the play. Why did William Shakespeare even add comic relief? The Nurse’s sense of humour relieves tension in several areas of play. If the tension in the play continues to build up, then the audience will expect the tragedies that are bound to happen. By adding comic relief, it lessens the anxiety in the audience, most likely making them laugh.
For instance, Hitchcock purposefully used specific shots to captivate the acting and emotions of each character. In The 39 Steps, Hannay and Pamela (Madeleine Carroll) estranged and juxtaposition relationship, is what saves this film from being more than just suspense but helps add a romance touch to the film. When Hitchcock used wide shots, he captures the Hannay and Pamela’s emotional discomfort. The primary shots that Hitchcock uses in The 39 Steps, are close-ups instead of wide shots. Hitchcock uses close-ups to create suspicion in characters’ faces.
This reaches a climax when he comes home intoxicated which shows that he expressed his true feelings towards Catherine, “He reaches out suddenly, draws her to him, and as she strives to free herself he kisses her on the mouth.” From the stage directions we can see that Catherine strives to be free which can be argued that she is fighting due to unwanted admiration. This scene was extremely uncomfortable for the audience to view due to realization of Eddie being her uncle. Despite many warnings from Beatrice and Alfieri, Eddie’s blindness is shown as he ignores their concerns. This was considered as a huge turning point in the play, as the action moves towards catastrophe, as his relationship with Catherine plunges from happiness to misery and culminates in his unnecessary
He does this in many ways, the first being that he has intimidated Daisy into staying with him rather than following her heart, for she clearly shows happiness in being with Gatsby. This can be shown with the contrast between the tears she ‘cried and cried’ on her wedding day and her face that was ‘smeared with tears’ after being reunited with Gatsby. The fact that she ‘cried and cried’ shows that she felt regret in marrying Tom as she still had feelings for Gatsby, the action also seems quite violent suggesting that they may be forced to portray the magnitude of her sadness. This also indicates that there are not true feelings between the couple and Tom confirms this with his ‘woman in New York’, Myrtle. However, as the tears merely ‘smeared’ her face with Gatsby, it seems very delicate, indicating they are tears of joy and that she may be unaware of her actions here.
The word “unrest” just supposed to have a negative connotation has been reversed to be something to wish for, especially be including the adjective of “sweet” before. Correspondingly, in the film, the night before leaving for his trip to Italy, Keats and Brawne are lying in bed expressing that “touch has a memory” (Campion). Those two moments, although seemly different, related to each other because it conveys the idea that even when looking or touching those memories of each other will never be forgotten. Further expressing that love has no limits. As well as,
In the short story “A Bolt of White Cloth,” Leon Rooke develops on the idea that love is a weakness that clouds and blinds the thoughts. The woman is intrigued by the travellers cloth and does not notice that she is being blinded by it. She does not notice her husband and is so in love with her new cloth that everything else fades away. “You could have knocked me over with a feather when she up and kissed him full on the mouth, with a nice hug to boot.” (Page 60).
This play is a classic comedy of manners, with an almost humanist reference point. Underlying it all is a romantic and even sentimental love of art. Simone’s constant claim, in spite of all her contradictory behaviour, is that she actually likes the million-dollar painting much more than the people she is actually trying to sell it to. The wives, Mindy and Felicity, each in their confused and oppressed ways, actually want the painting, not for it’s dollar value, but because they find it beautiful. Simone’s relationship with her husband Garry anchors the human side of the comedy slightly, but even he is slightly neurotic in his own quiet way, obsessed with not losing his apartment.
After spending years married to Tom, she has become used to looking into the material items. When reunited with Gatsby she only points her attention on what he has materialistically: “They’re such beautiful shirts … it makes me sad because I’ve never seen such-such beautiful shirts before” (pg 92). The reason Daisy is so upset is because she acknowledges that she could have had multiple materialistic gains whist being married to Gatsby in a love-filled relationship. When she sees what she could have had her mirage of a perfect life begins to crumble. But this leads to her in the end resorting to her false outward appearance since it is easier for her to fall back into her lie that confront her own truth, that she is unhappy presently.
In the beginning of the novel, we see that Huck is quick to deceive to save his own skin. However, on his travels, he learns that lying is not always the best choice and that it is morally correct to tell the truth. Again, an example is when Huck is participating in the King and the Duke’s swindle. While partaking in a plan to steal the girls’ will, Huck starts to feel uncomfortable. As he spends time with the girls, he sees how sweet they are, and one even starts to grow on him.
Oedipus the King Imagine living a joyful life of comorbidities with your beautiful wife and children, only to realize one day that everything you knew was a lie. Examining a work of literature such as Oedipus the King, by Sophocles (406B.C) is an extremely difficult to understand, without using resources such as the schools of criticism it would be even harder. Sophocles (406 B.C) writes a play that although at first sigh seems like the unwanted and unavoidable fate of a character. After taking a closer look, it is not fate but instead it is a subconscious desire that ends up fulfilling the prophecy. Using two schools of criticism, physiological and social-historical we will examine a child’s subconscious love for his mother and Oedipus and Jocasta’s subconscious knowledge of the the prophecy.
