What this quote is explaining is that, when a person is going through a hard time in life, blame of other people is typically their reaction. I agree completely with statement due to the fact that people often use blame a coping mechanism. Blame is a huge part of Romeo and Juliet, because the reader places blame onto the people in which they believe is the cause of a situation or outcome, such as the death of Romeo and
This has become true because as the couple now become rude to everyone else but when together they are the sweetest thing possible this is clearly shown when he said they consume the thing that feeds their fury. Although Petruchio put Kate through stressful obstacles somehow she still fell in love after he proved the point of her selfishness. Petruchio tamed her by giving and taking away things and making her technically beg for it. Petruchio fought smartly to first, convince Baptista that he is the right,strongest,richest man to marry her , and of course he did put her in check.

she said as she theif on Desdemona’s handkerchief. This great love, which is a redeeming trait in her personality and morality. Despite of her affection, she eventually recognizes Iago’s disinterest towards her and inequality in their marriage. “But I do think it is their husbands ' faults, If wives do fall.

Throughout Shakespeare play Macbeth, Lady Macbeth was regarded as ruthless, cruel and manipulative, although it was suggested there was more to her character. Lady Macbeth is not as evil as she was portrayed to be. Lady Macbeth had a strong relationship with her husband, they trusted each other and were loyal to one another. Through her words and actions she showed humanity that others didn’t expect from her. A wicked person wouldn’t feel the slightest guilt for something wrong they have done, yet Lady Macbeth felt culpability that lead her to her downfall.
Newland Archer, the novel’s protagonist, ends up loving the woman who breaks social norms while losing his love for May who has grown into the shape “into which tradition and training had moulded her”. The leisure-class is put under the magnifying glass by Wharton and she discusses the virtues and vices of each. Most notably, the flaws of their social norms that constricted Archer from showing his love towards Ellen are emphasised as he instead settles for May. Wharton provokes pity from the reader regarding the fact that Archer did not end up with his real love due to these constraints. Once meeting with a different set of norms and not being mechanically implied to fall in love, Archer finds his love in another person who does not follow the norms and is more free as a
89-92). She also becomes emotionally unstable in the wake of Odysseus’ disappearance, becoming easily swayed by her son’s words and reaching brief moments of clarity, before regressing back to “weeping/ for Odysseus, her husband”... when she mount[s] to her room again” (1. 410-412). But despite Penelope’s fragile state, she is still seen as being preferable over Kalypso due to the belief that it was good for women to depend on men. The quotes illustrate the clear divide
It can be safely concluded that the shape of Georgiana’s birthmark was meant to represent her humanity, her “liability to sin, sorrow, decay, and death” (7). Whether Aylmer wanted to remove it for the sake of his love for her is rather is a disruptive assumption. Considering his thought and the “convulsive shudder” (10) towards this birthmark, Aylmer’s obsession for perfection, obsession for success in an experiment, surpassed the love for his wife. Georgina’s death, due to the ‘elixir’ that Aylmer presented as the cure that would vanish her imperfection, symbolizes the consequences of the imbalance stated before. Even research of genecology, such as those stated in “The Perils of the Imperfect Expectations of A Perfect Baby”, agree that several complications are possible to those mothers who wish to birth the “perfect baby.” Hawthorne’s story illustrates the outcome of such imbalance, proving that perfection does not exist, and those whom which to surpass nature and transcend to higher level than that set by nature will face the consequences.
She is Iago’s wife and a worldly woman who plays a submissive role at the beginning of the play. Despite the villainous behaviour of her husband, she always obeys him and makes the mistake to give him Desdemona’s handkerchief. As we can see in Shakespeare’s play in Act III, scene iii, lines 294-303, Emilia’s speech makes clear her total submission to Iago. This act will provide him with the necessary prove to incriminate Cassio and to plunge Desdemona into misery. However, as the play is moving towards the end, Emilia, aware of her husband morbid plan, raises her voice and rebels against the strong patriarchal power of the Elizabethan society.
After Medea’s husband, Jason, betrayed her, desiring justice for his sin is a predictable action because the natural inclination to punish those who violate what is precious, for example, the sanctity of marriage, connects all of humanity – no matter the culture or time period. Therefore, one can understand Medea’s feelings and judge her goal as righteous. Moreover, the chorus, who’s role in a Greek play is to morally educate, defends and encourages Medea in
Know we have divided in three our kingdom” (Lear Act 1:1 lines 37-40). Lear wants his daughters to fill his pride by having his daughters tell him how much they love him, even if they are lying. This sense of pride is Lear’s tragic flaw and it will eventually lead him to his own demise. As the play progresses, King Lear will succumb to madness as he slowly realizes he was selfish and gave credit to the wrong daughters. Chin-Yi, a scholar at the National University of Singapore states “Madness thus paradoxically comes with insight, it is only in madness that Lear apprehends the truth, while in sanity he had been blind to the superficial flatteries of Goneril and Regan” (Chin-Yi).
Harrison has carefully structured the sequence of scenes to create "an accumulation" of ideas about being "Stolen". This is particularly effective in the repetition of scenes to emphasise the stories and show subtle changes in the characters. A good example is the repetition of the Line-Up scene. In "Line-Up age twelve", Shirley is particularly cynical, as she believes they will only be chosen to be unpaid servants for white families, while in the horrific scene in "Line-Up 3" depicts Jimmy’s ignorance to Shirley 's warnings of being chosen and Ruby 's traumatic behaviour from the effects of being chosen. The "Unspoken Abuse" scenes are very effective in showing the deterioration in Ruby 's mental health as she returns from her weekends, as for Jimmy, the irony of wanting so much to be chosen, ends in him suffering corresponding and similar physical and sexual abuse to Ruby.
