From the perspective of Larry’s mother and the women on the street, Larry’s drunkenness is not a positive thing and much disappointment and blame for this is put on Larry’s father and irresponsibility. And then considering the situation from Larry’s father’s point of view, Larry’s drunkenness was a result of his own doing. Larry’s father did not find himself at fault because his son drank the beer and made a choice to get drunk. The father believed that he had a right to socialize, free from the worries of his
His opinion is mixed because although he accepts the society’s idea of Jim being a slave he still respects him. His acceptance of the society’s idea of Jim being a slave is shown when Huck addresses Jim as “Miss Watson’s nigger” (Twain, 17). By addressing Jim as such Huck is excepting society’s position on slavery without really having any experience with it himself. Huck’s acceptance is also shown when Jim brings up the idea of stealing his wife and children back, in which he responds “It most froze me to hear such talk” (Twain, 88). This shows his acceptance because he doesn’t see Jim as a person and he sees his children as someone else’s property, which he feels would be wrong to steal.
In one of her more revealing moments, she threatens to have the black stable-hand lynched if he complains about her to the boss. Her insistence on flirting with Lennie seals her unfortunate fate. Although Steinbeck does, finally, offer a sympathetic view of Curley’s wife by allowing her to voice her unhappiness and her own dream for a better life, women have no place in the author’s idealized vision of a world structured around the brotherly bonds of men. In Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men women are portrayed as discriminated. In the times John Steinbeck lived in women were not held in high regard but they were just present to serve men.
They are confused and don’t know whether to take action and find out why he has donned this dark drape, or to accept it and move about with their lives. The people grew distant from him, and eventually wrote him off as a good preacher, but slightly mad. Children, who normally loved his presence, ran from him and were utterly disturbed at the sight of him. When asked if Mr. Hooper would remove the veil , and given an answer that they didn’t want to hear, they isolated themselves from him. And even though the townspeople disliked his choice, they respected it.
Roy, who has acted the role of the bully throughout Cosi says something so shocking that it makes the audience wonder what Roy has experienced in his life to make him view love as a feeling ‘when you don’t have enough emotion to hate’ but Roy’s childhood is soon revealed which the audience then sympathises with Roy and understands Roy’s great appreciation of music for ‘music is what love between humans should be.’ Henry, the most silent of the patients has such a strong but quite outdated view on love and fidelity in contrast with the younger characters. It is also ironic that the character that Henry plays in Cosi Fan Tutte is completely cynical about the fidelity of women whereas Henry is a firm believer that women can stay true because his mother ‘only llloved his fffather, no one else.’ Doug, however has the same views as Nick and Lucy about free love and offers Lewis the advice, ‘you can always find loneliness in marriage, but never solitude.’ Julie who is a drug addict describes the feeling of love as ‘being stupid and foolish... hallucinating without drugs.’ This view is the closest in the relationship between love and what is real.

In line 471 she says: "You loved me, John Proctor, and whatever sin it is, you love me yet!" Everything she does is for the sake of love. Which is not an excuse at all, but now it makes more sense why she gets into trouble connected with witchcraft and involves the girls in it.
Where did the genuine love of real people seem to disappear to? Montag dislikes this personified machinery that takes over his household and questions Mildred, “Does your ‘family’ love you, love you very much, love you with all their heart and soul, Millie?”(pg.77) Mildred does not, answer for deep inside, she knows that the life that she occupies, is unnatural. Montag remains confused and heartbroken thanks to the cold-blooded talking walls. In the book, people look for love in things that are not able to give love in return and if not that, there is no love being looked for at

Love and the Legend of King Arthur Love: a touch subject for most people in today’s society. What exactly is the definition of love? Webster’s New World Dictionary of the American Language’s definition is “A deep tender feeling of affection for or attachment or devotion to a person or persons.” Andreas Capellanus’ “The Art and Rules of Courtly Love” is a book that entails his rule of courtly love and what “real” love is. The rules of courtly love portrayed in the Legend of King Arthur are: A true lover desires none but his beloved, the difficulty in attaining such love is proportional to its value, and nothing forbids two people from loving the same person. In the Legend of King Arthur, the most prominent and probably greatest lover was Lancelot du Lac.
