In this part, Curley’s wife talks to Candy about how his dreams are not going to work out. She says, “I seen too many of you guys...I know you guys” (Steinbeck, pg 79). This proves that Curley’s wife has been at that house for a long time with no one to talk to, and it’s caused her to have a constant need for attention. The only way she knows how to get attention is by messing with people. Curley’s wife tries to explain to Candy that his dreams will never work out which portrays that she deals with her attention by bring people down.
Macbeth also goes as far as letting his wife question his manhood and intent. Lady Macbeth questions him if “the hope [was] drunk Wherein [he] dressed [himself]? Hath it slept since? And wakes it now, to look so green and pale” (1.7.39-41). When Macbeth tells his wife that he no longer intends to kill Duncan, she questions his intentions and sobriety.
All throughout this play, Eddie is portrayed by Miller as a strikingly complex character, with an internal conflict regarding his niece; whether his feelings are paternal or whether he feels something more towards her. Miller demonstrates this conflict through dialogue. One example of this is an early comment from Eddie towards Catherine (his niece); he says “Beautiful. Turn around, lemme see you in the back.” Although to the audience it seems like an innocent and wholly paternal comment, it is Eddie’s final comment of support about her outfit before he starts to insult it. Eddie suddenly finds a reason to dislike it; it
He makes her stay in a room that she does not like, refuses to let her visit relations, and prevents her from doing the thing she loves the most, which is writing. Even in instances where she tries to speak up for herself and explain her needs and wants, her husband suppresses them “Why, darling! he said, ‘Our lease will be up in three weeks, and I can’t see how to leave before” (Gilman 554). He refused to acknowledge that she was not feeling better by being in that house and refused to let her leave. His thinking that he knows his wife's emotions and thoughts better than she does adds to his sense of
Tom, who went away from his mother and sister sees it as a way of getting away from his mother who did not only blame him for not telling them all about Jim (Laura’s suitor) moreover; did not appreciate him despite all he did for their family. Williams writes, “All right, I will! The more you shout about my selfishness to me the quicker I’ll go, and I won’t go to the movies!” (Qtd in Barnet, Burto, and Cain, p.
Shakespeare situates this moment directly after Juliet’s wedding night , linking the idea of development from childhood to adulthood. The audience can infer that she feels apoplectic and imprisoned by her father as she says ‘Proud can I never be of what I hate’. The revelation of Juliet’s attitude toward her father would have shocked an Elizabethan audience whereas in modern times we find it normal to disagree with our parents. Shakespeare uses foreshadowing technique in the lines ‘or if you do not, make the bridal bed, in that dim monument where Tybalt dies’ which adds dramatic tension to the story by building anticipation about what might happen next. The audience can see Juliet developing in maturity as this is the first time in the play that she disobeys her parents and makes her own
Eddie’s family is presented as an average family. When Catherine, Eddie’s niece, decides to work as a stenographer, his over-protective qualities start to appear causing the first conflict in the play with his wife, Beatrice, when she questions "You gonna keep [Catherine] in the house all her life?" Here Beatrice questions Eddie with an angering tone about the way he thinks and shows some disappointment in him, so he asks "insulted : what kinda remark is that?” At this point, Miller starts gradually building Eddie’s character, he wishes to indicate to the audience that Eddie is the type of man that no matter who the person is or whether he loves them or not there is no barrier to initiating conflict with them. Arthur Miller keeps Eddie 's qualities vital to keep the audience 's attention and give them a hint to the big climax. As Eddie is a longshoreman, it is obvious to an audience
In the same way as above, Odysseus continues to show disloyalty to Penelope, Alcinous stated in a longing way, “If only- you could wed my daughter and be my son-in-law and stay right here with us.” (7. 355 and 358-359). In this section of the Odyssey, Odysseus showed disloyalty once again to Penelope because Odysseus not only flirted with Nausicaa, but went to her parents house knowing nausicaa thought he might be the one she weds one day. After the fact that Alcinous mentioned this, Odysseus did not deny it at all and. Along with that, He never even told Nausicaa
