In addition, the way that Happy is actually unhappy creates a dramatic irony as his emotions opposes his name. However, it also shows a similarity between Happy and Willy as both of them had sexual affairs with other women and their views of women as objects are the
Hamlet ICTW In conveying the contempt the Ghost and Hamlet embrace towards the Queen and Claudius, Shakespeare, in his tragedy Hamlet, integrates Claudius’s need for power in order to irradiate the notion of Claudius’s selfishness and human betrayal. In the passage, the damning diction employed by the Ghost reveals biblical undertones and apprises the reader of the conniving ways of Claudius and the Queen. The ghost describes Claudius through the metaphor of a serpent- evoking a biblical reference Adam and Eve. The Ghost reveals that Claudius murdered him by saying: “The serpent that did sting thy father’s life now wears his crown.” By employing the wording “serpent,” it highlights Claudius’ sneaky ways: slithering about to take over the throne. Claudius purposefully set out to murder his own flesh and blood, which proves his selfishness, similar to the biblical reference of the serpent.
But Allende is a psychological realist, and she recognizes realism and the need for the oxygen of romance in the routine of human existence. Allende clearly shows that emotions don’t always follow rules and the most unlikely characters find themselves being enrolled by unexpected passion in the institution of intimacy, as in the light-hearted
It consists of the nude Venus and Cupid. The painting shows Cupid, stung by bees, complaining to mother, Venus, of the pain by small bees. Lucas had his friend, Melanchton, translate the text to him and gave him Venus’ response to her child as,”you are too small and your arrows are much more painful to victims.” The translation of the history allowed him to paint Venus and Cupid with strong sense of conflict. He showed Venus’ pale white body stand out in an attractive pose. Lucas’ vision of this painting defined his interests in the human body.
This enforces the idea that unlike Lennie, she is a complex character in the novel. Steinbeck mentioned that Curley’s wife’s voice had a “nasal, brittle quality” which is a clear sign of her flirtatious behaviour. Although her intentions were flirty, the fact that it was described as ‘nasal’ by the author made it obvious that it was unpleasant to the ears. The reaction from George made it clear to the reader that she was an attractive woman, however he was being apprehensive as he “looked away from her and then back”. This contrasts with Lennies reaction as his “eyes moved down over her body” blatantly checking her out.

Within this frame, heterosexuality is viewed as the natural emotional and sexual inclination for women, and those who go against this are seen as deviant, pathological or as emotionally and sensually deprived (Lorde 1984; Pharr and Raymond 1997). This script is commonly associated with women who appear to be a self-determined with a strong locus of control. No matter what her true sexual orientation is, she confronts men when disrespected or threatened. Clearly, the tensions around this script are about the strength that these women are able project without incorporating the sexual desires of men. Gangster Bitches are associated with women who live in the same squalid, poverty-stricken, drug-infested, violent environments that have traditionally focused on the ‘‘endangered African American male’’ in popular imagination for the past decade (Hampton 2000).
