Concerned for his mother he humorously tries to set up a date with a man named Will, in desperate hope to find her happiness, ignoring his own. Therefore this proves that the enclosure of sadness and despair that surrounds him and his beloved mother ironically did not drag him down but has rather exhilarated his determination to find happiness for not only himself but more importantly for his mother. This is also the case in Jeannette's childhood memoir. In the process of how frequently her family moved around from “...the motel room with dark red walls and two narrow beds”(Walls 32) or “...parking on an empty downtown street, (waking up) to
Tom Jones and Clarissa Compare and contrast Clarissa and Tom Jones as narratives about the struggle between daughters and their fathers over the daughters' marital fates. Both involve a father attempting to force his daughter to marry a man of his choosing. Regardless of the fact that one is a tragic and the other a comic treatment of this theme, discuss whether Richardson and Fielding at bottom agree or disagree about what a parent's power and a child's rights ought to be. Clarissa Harlowe in Clarissa, and Sophia in Tom Jones, both deal with the struggle of having to marry men whom they felt nothing for. The fact that they were single, innocent, powerful women made them available for their families to choose their mate.

Omar Mason Donna Paparella English 220 March 18, 2013 Hamlet's Forbidden Love Shakespeare's Hamlet has been interpreted in various ways in order to explain the actions of the protagonist, Prince Hamlet. A controversial interpretation of Hamlet's behavior is the Oedipus theory, introduced by Sigmund Freud. The Oedipus complex is when a son has feelings of desire for his mother, and jealousy or anger towards his father. This is evident through language and diction Shakespeare uses in act three scene four, while Hamlet speaks with his mother. During the conversation with his mother, Gertrude, Hamlet is focusing more on his mother's sex life rather than avenging his father's death.

Relationship Analysis in Kaplan’s “The Rocking Horse Winner” Within the story “The Rocking-Horse Winner” by DH Lawrence, a young boy named Paul endeavors on an obsessive quest to seek out his mother’s love. The final result of Paul’s strained desire is a fatal illness, supposedly caused by his precious obsession. Although it is reasonable to want love from one’s mother, it is a possibility that Paul’s mother, Hester, may have given Paul the wrong idea about how to obtain love. Rather than teaching him the true value of loving one for who they are, she appears to plant the idea that materialistic items obtained through money bring love. In the beginning of the short story, the narrator states that Hester “married for love” but that “the love turned to dust”.
In “A Rose for Emily” and “The Rocking Horse Winner” Faulkner and Lawrence present the theme of love in a twisted manner. Although both of these stories are about love, they are about two very different kinds of love: Emily Grierson is in a romantic relationship with Homer Baron, while Paul’s love is maternal for his mother. Both stories do however, give a macabre view of love, as they each end with the deaths of the protagonists. Although both stories illustrate love as a source of pain and anguish, it is Emily that presents a more twisted view of love, as she is in control of the decisions that she makes in her life. Conversely, Paul’s story is actually tragic in nature.
