This does not bode well and the relationship is strained from the onset. Throughout the play, Blanche made changes to his home as well as trying to come between him and his wife, Stella. Stanley didn’t approve of the lampshade simply because it wasn’t his decision. Stanley didn’t want to hear music when he played poker because it was distracting; he knew it was his home and he wanted to be able to do what he wanted- which is what he enjoyed when Stella was around. Blanche became a destructive force- she called Stanley a brute and even questioned
Romeo and Juliet By: Steff Commentary This section may appear to readers as unimportant because it is just Capulet and Tybalt talking and nothing happens. On the contrary, this passage illustrates how the characters handle situations given. This may foreshadow problems for each character such as maybe future aggressive conflict with Tybalt. The character Capulet is all a façade. He appears warm hearted and eager to end the conflict at first but then you see his real intentions and his real state of mind is focused on “what the people want” and not what is best for Romeo under the given circumstances of the families’ feud.
He is outraged by Nora’s actions when he thinks it will negatively affect how he is viewed by society but when he finds out there will be no repercussions he can forgive her behavior. Throughout the play A Doll's House the character of Nora does not truly change. In the end she just decides to be true to herself and stop pretending to be the person her husband expects her to be. Helmer does appear to change but only when Nora is determined to leave him. From their first interaction we see the belittling way that Helmer interacts with Nora.
Textual Analysis of A Streetcar Named Desire Based on Tennessee William’s A Streetcar Named Desire, Elia Kazan creates an award winning movie that helps readers visualize Stanley’s primal masculinity, the inner torments of the Kowalski women and the clash of the other characters’ problems which create a chaotic mess. Using stage directions in the play, William hints that Blanche is not who she appears to be while the movie subtly sheds light on Blanche’s strange little habits that suggests a bigger issue. The movie also censors many of the main themes in Williams’ play but makes up for it by having its actors flawlessly portray the characters’ emotions, allowing the readers to see the conflict at its full magnitude. Both the movie and the play sympathize with the powerless women by underlining the important theme of women’s dependence on men. Blanche is an insecure, miserable older woman who masks herself as a rich, upper class lady.
Sometimes, when people choose to blind themselves to the truth, they do so to maintain a good life. However, that action can sometimes result in ruining lives. Jocasta from ‘Oedipus Rex’, and Gertrude from ‘Hamlet’, turn blind eye in order to have a great life, but they end up being the cause of the tragedy. Both the characters find no need to upset their lifestyle by looking for unhidden truth, which, later on, leads to downfall of themselves and others. Jocasta and Gertrude live beautiful lives; thus, they find no need to unearth any hidden truths, even when they are given the chances to do so.
Due to her complete lack of self-pleasure while living with her overpowering superego she wants to avoid the pain of a prude life in order to achieve the pleasure she gets from stealing. Although she has stolen once she fails substitute her lack of past pleasure with just the bracelet. She keeps stealing until she has filled in the gap of loneliness by actually stealing a companion (the baby). Her superego and ego seems to be
Actors and liars both use the basic method of words and body language to get their point across to whoever is listening. Liars have to rely solely on the illusion that they themselves can weave without further help. A husband who has lied to his wife about where he was after work has to rely primarily on the confidence that his wife has instilled in him and how far he can push that trust before she begins to doubt him. He'll take her gently by the arm and smile down at her, speaking to her in soothing tones as he spins his deceitful web around her. He'll be careful to come up with a reasonable excuse, and maybe he'll have a receipt from the liquor store to show her that, yes dear, I really was there at precisely, at 8:30 P.M.
Daisy will never try to decipher the motives of other characters because she has put on a mask of foolishness which will force her to say that she believes that everyone has good intentions. Her perspective is very unique due to the fact that she is the cause of the main conflict but
Lord Henry responds to this by noting that Dorian was beginning to moralize, and this was a negative thing because he believed that the books and art themselves did not make morals, therefore art could not be poison. Lord Henry argues, “As for being poisoned by a book, there is no such thing as that. Art has no influence upon action. It annihilates the desire to act. It is superbly sterile.
By this logic, the real antagonist in the story is Diana. She is the person preventing Alan from getting his obsessive ideal of romantic love. Although we don’t get much insight of her personality besides the fact that she is an outgoing young woman. Secondary character: I’d file the chemist as a secondary character because, although he is the one that moves the plot along by giving Alan the love potion, he is in no ulterior way benefitted by the exchange. He could have as easily sold the potion to some other desperate guy and it would not have a difference to him.
