For example, Editha has just finished speaking to George about her feelings and thoughts on the war, when she has a thought; "but now, it flashed upon her, if he could do something worthy to have won her-be a hero, her hero-it would be even better than if he had done it before asking her; it would be grander" pg.55. In this quote Editha reveals her true feelings and objective towards George; she feels as a woman she is entitled to some grand performance of love and that as a man George should oblige. Editha's feelings towards George's manhood are extreme, but they are contemporary in some respects; in today's modern society women have placed a large number of expectations on men. Men are deemed weak if they are not aggressive, successful or virile; even our children stories place excessive standards on men they are supposed to be heroic rescuers who take care of the women's every whim. This relates to Editha because she displays the same imbalanced "macho" perspective on men that has been displayed throughout history and that is still displayed in American women
It is seen when Lewis is introduced, his views on love are very similar to that of his girlfriend Lucy and best friend Nick. He does not hold much value on fidelity due to the importance of the Vietnam War in his life. Lewis expresses to the patients that “love is not so important nowadays.” It is through the play itself, “Cosi Fan Tutte: Women are like that”, a play about “test[ing]..girls fidelity”, that Lewis reevaluates his opinions and values and learns to form his own. Lewis changes to having a more traditional view on romance and is able to accept that it is important in relationships. This change in Lewis is apparent when he describes the opera as being about “important things, like love and fidelity” and when he reacts genuinely hurt to when he discovers that his girlfriend Lucy has been having sex with Nick.
As an American, I want to see our nation recapture the strength and unity it once had…” The repetition of the phrase “I condemn…” puts emphasis on the fact that she too is against the ideas of Communism and Fascism, but reminds the audience that she sees a different approach to getting rid of them. The repetition of the phrase, “As an American…” draws attention to the fact that she too is American and needs to unite with her country against Communism. Here the appeal of Pathos by repetition aides in conveying both of Smith’s
It has hurt our credibility across the world and caused a loss of faith in government by its citizens. Although the necessity of the war is argued by many, it is only done in an analysis of its occurrence. Had it not happened and the world possibly fell under Communism, then we would be arguing the exact opposite. The United States did what it felt it had to do at the time, given the information it had. To go to war in Vietnam was a risk the US felt it had to take in order to contain Communism, thus securing its economic prosperity and worldwide dominance.

Carlo Guercio argued that 'history ought to consist only of the anecdotes of the little people who are caught up in it'The war is described through the eyes of a homosexual, who conveys ideal love but is only detested by society, which force him to have a future of complete sufferingfeelings.

Both the Characters both have a similarity of that they were not loved properly as children. This gives them both a great need to be loved by someone who truly loves them. The relationship is important as if it was not, then they would have not carried out the adultery. When we are first introduced to Isabelle we only know that she is called Madame Azaire because Azaire calls her “my wife”. This makes the reader feel as though Monsieur Azaire does not respect his wife because he does not call her by her name.
What problem does Somine de Beauvoir think is preventing genuine love between men and women? Is she right? “Humanity is male and a man defines female not in her self but as relative to him; she is not regarded as an autonomous being(De Beauvoir 1983, p. 16).This statement itself presents the nature of male and female inequalities which in de Beauvoir’s view determines the genuine love they experience for one another. De Beauvoir suggests that because of the influence of gender stereotypes, men and women have historically had very different attitudes toward love. She continues to argue that as a result such difference presents inequality and has made genuine love between man and women doubtful.
To her, the religious laws were more important than the governmental laws she was being asked to follow. Antigone and Creon would never see eye to eye on which law ultimately should be followed because of their own individuality. While Antigone had to pay the price for disobeying the governmental law, she ultimately had the right to give her brother a proper burial. One of the main themes in the play Antigone is Civil Disobedience. Often society has laws that individuals feel are immoral, or unjust.
In the novel we see that Harriet and Mr Martin would be a suitable match, however Emma guides Harriet against marrying Mr Martin, as she believes that Mr Elton would be better suited. Us as the viewer though can see that Mr Elton and Harriet would be unsuitable because of their different social classes. Emma misjudges the feelings Mr Elton has for Emma, and believes that Mr Elton is referring to Harriet. Emma does not see the error of this match until Mr Elton confesses his love for Emma, and She then realizes how mistaken she was and this does unsettle her. Austen highlights the theme of social class throughout the novel, particularly in terms of Emma’s friendship with Harriet Smith.
Many debates have happened whether or not these women approach feminism for their time period. The answer to that is ambiguous and depends on how the reader takes in their writings. One can say that even though Wollstonecraft is so obviously pining for co-education, and in that way to be equal to men, she is not promoting equality for anything else. By not wanting to be equal in anything else, how can she be approaching feminism? Pizan so obviously from the start of her writing, introduces how women should behave (from the perspective of a princess), so that her actions shall be beneficial to her and her husband.
