Whilst thou liest warm at home, secure and safe” (Shakespeare 5.2.163-167). Katherine essentially explains that, in their time, their husbands are vital, strenuously working to provide while the women merely reap the benefits. Those who believe that Katherine actually loves Petruchio contrast her initial disparagement toward him to her open praise for him in her end speech. Katherine’s devotion and love for Petruchio is also shown because of her capacity to praise Petruchio in front of everyone. It is important to realize that Katherine is referring to Petruchio when she mentions “thy

The first thing Morrie tells us about his new mother shows that he is very fond of her. She is called his “saving embrace”, and that shows that he likes her. We know that she is a very energetic person and she brings positive atmosphere into the rather dim areas that his father creates. In quite a few aspects, she is the opposite of Morrie’s father and brings a very positive atmosphere into Morrie’s life. I believe that Eva is a big reason that Morrie is as loving and caring as he is.
This concept is symbolized in the fact that though Elisa raises her chrysanthemums out of pride and genuine appreciation of their beauty, her husband merely praises their basic quality and automatically urges her to re-allocate her efforts to a productive purpose, saying “I wish you’d work out in the orchards and raise some apples that big.” (Steinbeck 2). His unwillingness to appreciate the application of her “feminine” talent of gardening to create beauty and his intimation that only a lucrative fertility would be valued from her debases her womanhood to a mere execution of duty, undermining her worth and attractiveness as an individual. This theme is echoed symbolically in the fact that Henry and the tinker only approach her garden domain out of necessity; Henry to inform her in the most basic way and to dictate what they will do that evening, the tinker in hopes of targeting her as a domestic consumer and thereby coaxing her to provide him with means of sustenance (2, 4). The result of this is that it is ingrained in Elisa that the extent of the worth of her womanhood in society and at home is confined to her usefulness as a producer of low-level domestic assets and
In a simile, she compares gardening to “boxing… The wins versus the losses” (Hudes 16). Through this comparison, Hudes conveys Ginny’s deep desire for a sense of control and success in her life. This desire is fed by the memory of her father, who was only bearable when he was gardening. Specifically, the assertion of this desire for control is evident as she recalls that her father “was a mean bastard…” but “became a saint if you put a flower in his hand” (Hudes 15). From those experiences of dealing with her father, a psychological analogy between nature and peace was instilled in Ginny’s mind at a young age, and is what she relies on as an adult to handle her emotional trauma.

The theme of love was shown in the two short stories, “The Knight’s Tale” and “The Wife of Bath” are two different ways so that Chaucer’s audience would have multiple different stories to help find their true meaning of falling and love. As humans, we are surrounded by love for the moment of conception, for not only our parents are in love; our parents love us too. We are wired so that we are constantly searching for the everlasting feelings of being in love with someone, Chaucer assists readers on the journey of finding true love. Some people in life resist love, others take advantage of it, and some people even reject the idea of being in love, but as humans, we strongly desire the feelings and emotions that are connected with being in love. So to answer the ongoing question of what the correct way to fall in love is, falling in love is like riding a bike you have to keep moving to find what balances
Another example, he says, “I bring you, / reawakened, / a memory of those flowers” (79-81). Williams again uses the flowers to represent past experiences and memories he and his wife have shared. The asphodel may represent their current state being he has cheated on her, and the other flowers represent the happier memories from the past. The critic Kathryne Lindberg says, “... the poem [‘Asphodel, That Greeny Flower’] is full of self-conscious references, citations, allusions, apologies” (137). Lindberg agrees that the poem does have many memories embedded in it.
As the visit from Desiree’s mother continues, she details in on how her husband, Armand, has changed because of his child and marriage for the better, as he did not punish the slaves or treat anyone with remorse.

The change in Armand was enough to make her happy, as she put her life and soul into his. She became happier than she ever was, and lived a good life for some time.
