This is opposite of social norms in the nineteenth century because a woman having sexual desires was not natural, and she must be coerced into sexual acts by a man. Chopin writes a story where Calixta’s sexual desire builds without her really noticing it because a women having sexual desires is natural. Calixta is described as “greatly occupied and [does] not notice the approaching storm” (154). Calixta puts her needs and wants to the side to take care of her husband and son, but now she needs to do something for herself. In the late-nineteenth-century, women were thought to be happy with whatever their man could give them, Calixta wants more.
In Their Eyes Were Watching God, Janie’s faults made her dependent emotionally towards men, but independent when finding her own happy ending throughout the book. From The Odyssey, Calypso desperately tried to find love and make Odysseus stay, but her flaws of attachment and having a higher level of authority over Odysseus in their relationship kept her from achieving real love with someone. Although Janie and Calypso are opposites when it comes to love, they do have similarities. Their relationships always ended the same way, with Janie leaving her husbands and Calypso being deserted by her lovers. They both tried to to find love, with some difficulties for each women individually.

Then Edna also comes to the understanding that the house she lives in with her husband does not feel like home. The possessions and money that fill the house constantly remind her that she has no materialistic belongings of her own. Therefore, she decides to move out and create her own personal haven (107). With clear eyes after having relationships with three men she realizes that she actually loves only one of them and she makes a hasty decision when she cannot physically have Robert (113). Finally, after giving up hope for a future with Robert, she decides to end her pain forever by walking into the “ocean 's abyss” (157).
It has been argued further that Chopin’s title passes on to nature, which is characteristically feminine; the storm can thus be viewed as representative of feminine sexuality and excitement, and the image of the storm will be returned to over and over all over the story. Chopin employed lots of Calixta’s dealings in 'The Storm' in order to represent the sexual control of the time and the increasing surge of physical desires. Perhaps one of the best examples of that takes place when Calixta is doing housework. Alcee arrives at the house. Calixta has been functioning with much strength, till Calixta has some clothes hanging out to dry as a clean on the porch and, after Alcee arrival, they are in hazard of blowing away from the strapping wind coming up with the storm.
Daisy Buchanan’s reality is very stressful and problematic, so she finds solace in coping methods that aren 't the most effective. “‘Oh, you want too much’ she cried to Gatsby ‘I love you now- isn 't that enough? I can 't help what 's past,’ she began to sob helplessly. ‘I did love him once-
In Kate Chopin’s 1898 short story, “The Storm,” the author uses a storm as a metaphor to mirror Calixta’s sexuality. In the 19th century creole culture, women were sexually oppressed under male dominion. During a climactic storm, Calixta has an emotional storm of sexual passion with Alcee. In the Creole culture, wives are expected to remain faithful and be submissive to their husbands, but their husbands could have affairs. In this short story, Calixta goes against the Creole culture and has an affair with her past lover, Alcee.
Her husband Tom was not happy about this at all, he explained at dinner one night “I suppose the latest thing is to sit back and let mr.nobody from nowhere make love to your wife.” (pg.130) Gatsby was under the impression that Daisey only ever loved him but this was not the case. Gatsby was heartbroken when he came to the realization that Daisey had loved another; Tom. He explained to Tom “your wife doesn't love you. She never loved you.
His treatment of Myrtle suggests no deep emotional investment either, as is showcased when he casually breaks her nose with “…a short deft movement” (Fitzgerald 41). He calls for her when it suits him, lies to her, and exerts physical dominance when she becomes inconveniently demanding. He has no desire to be close to his mistress; she is merely the means by which he avoids being close to his wife. Similarly, Daisy’s fear of intimacy, though as intense, is not quite as immediately apparent. Indeed, her marital fidelity, until her affair with Gatsby, and her distress over Tom’s involvement with Myrtle might suggest to some readers that Daisy desires emotional intimacy with her husband.
In addition, she still remains happy when returning to her submerged life. " So the storm passed and everyone was happy. " Edna in The Awakening has her freedom for flirtatious behavior, love of art, and swimming. She feeds her selfish, obsessed need for drama in her life. She ignores the raging battle within her for a greater cause that is larger than herself.
Since I was a little kid all I’ve ever heard was to stay away from boys. Boys are no good and nothing but trouble. They have bad intentions and are only out for sex. This has had me questioning whether this is true, that men, much different then women, prefer lust to love or if this is all a sexist idea our society has constructed. For this reason and others such as personal experiences that men are much more concerned with sex
The body still had demands however and these were filled with meaningless sex or flirting. Further, on the whole sex itself requires a large amount of trust to be put into the other partner. And as Fredrickson’s study of investors and trustees showed, “that through synchronous oxytocin surges, trust and cooperation can quickly become mutual” (115). Though perhaps the time spent between Jayanthi and Claudia’s partners were brief, undoubtedly there was some connection between the time they met and the instance they would have sex together. This surge of synchronous connection to another must have in many ways been very fulfilling in addition to the actual act of sex itself.
She lived with her mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother” (Tolentino 6). Most authors immerse themselves in their books. Whether a planned or subconscious action, they use their own experiences to influence their works. Kate Chopin’s household experiences, as well as, the progression of feminism, society in Louisiana, and Creole standards directly influenced her novel, The Awakening. Kate Chopin lived a bitter-sweet young-adulthood.
