This illustrates how Lady Capulet is ignorant to the fact that her daughter is now married to Romeo, leading to her inability to understand the meaning behind what Juliet is saying. Furthermore, Capulet could be said to have failed Juliet in this
· He tells Ophelia he loves her and does not love her, thinks she should never have trusted him but wants her to go away to a nunnery for her own protection. He calls himself a liar, but when he discovers Ophelia is dead, Hamlet's reaction suggests that he did, love her. · · I loved Ophelia: forty thousand brothers · Could not, with all their quantity of love, · Make up my sum. · · Hamlet does not always tell the truth, but there is enough evidence to suggest that Hamlet probably did love Ophelia. 4.
Our lives aren’t furtive, just our feelings towards people like you” (50). Andre’s mother is repeatedly bashed at by Cal because of her “disapproval” on Andre’s homosexuality. Where in the text does it state that Andre’s mother directly disapproved of his homosexuality? All it states is that Andre was AFRAID of her disapproval. What happens at the climax of the play?
Bradstreet desired for Puritans to admire her writings as they do Guillaume du Bartas. Bradstreet says that with her “wond’ring eyes and envious heart/ Great Bartas’ sugared lines do but read o’er” (128). Anne wants to be like Bartas, but Bradstreet knows that because she is a woman, her works will never be praised like Guillaume’s. Bradstreet is also envious of the Greeks and their literary accomplishments. Bradstreet also shows her insecurity when she says, “Nor can I, like that fluent sweet tongued Greek” (129).
The final line “Who could not say, ‘Tis pity she’s a whore?” can be seen as directed towards her and so she is blamed for everything that has occurred. Throughout the play she is seen as quite powerful and headstrong by refusing many marriage proposals and being quite stubborn in doing so. However, she is reduced to a weak being however upon dying which is a culmination of her passions. It is perceived that women are a danger to men and to society as a whole and so Giovanni’s actions are to be blamed not on himself, but on Annabella because of the beauty she possesses. Giovanni states that Annabella’s “lips would tempt a saint” thus showing the corruption her presence inflicts upon even the supposed innocent of men.
I don't really think the narrator feels sympathy for Emily. I see the narrator as one of the gossipy townspeople that only take interest in Emily for selfish amusement, and to interfere with her life. I see the townspeoples' comments "Poor Emily" more as a statement of pity that she couldn't be like the rest of them, than as a statement of real concern and sympathy for her. 3. I don't think that it's believable that the pharmacist would give Miss Emily the poison, because, as he stated, she had to state her reasons for wanting the arsenic by law, and she clearly refused to.
It is evident that he is not happy being married to Daisy because he has an affair with Myrtle. This is another example of how money does not necessarily buy happiness. It is ironic that Daisy kills Myrtle because although she didn’t mean to kill her she might have been jealous that she is everything that Daisy is not to Tom. Therefore she feels a need to get Myrtle out of the
She is completely unable to control her feelings for her only love, “I must love a loathed enemy” [I, v, 139]. The way that Shakespeare uses “must” is very interesting because although the households are enemies she must go against her parents will because she loves Romeo. No longer did her parents support her instead she was rejected. When Juliet rebels against marring Paris, “He shall not make me a joyful bride” [III,v,117]. Lord Capulet becomes enraged of this defiant behaviour, “An you be mine, I’ll give you to my friend / an you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets, / For, by my soul, I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee” [III, v, 192-4].
The other faction sees her as self-righteous and hypocritical. They point out that she seems little concerned by her brother's crime but is too horrified of committing the same transgression herself--even to save her brother's life. She apparently suffers no qualms, however, in asking Mariana to share Angelo's bed. The reason for which she has been most strongly criticized is her seeming lack of sympathy for Claudio when he pleads with her to save him by giving in to Angelo's desire. She turns upon him violently, revolted by his weakness.
Another way the poet shows that the relationship isn’t a very loving one is that he says “’Not near, not near!’ her eyes beseech”, this means that she begs him to stay away from her so therefore the relationship can’t be that good.”I’ve hardly heard he speak at all “is another good indicator that it’s a one sided relationship as to even have a friendship you have to talk to the other person. Despite all of this at the start of the poem it says “I chose a maid“ which gives the impression that he wasn’t interested in romance only lust and her good looks but now he has fallen in love with her but she doesn’t feel the same way towards him. The manhunt In this poem the relationship portrayed is a lost love that was once there a long time ago and is now trying to be rekindled. An example of this is “After the first phase after passionate night and intimate days” this shows that there have been stages to their relationship and at the very start it was good as they had both physical and emotional attraction and love for each other but they are now at a not so good stage of their relationship. Another example of this “the frozen river which ran through his face” this is a metaphor for him being emotionless so he doesn’t show affection towards her.
