This leads to feelings of frustration for both sexes. The men value war and glory, the women value love and peace. In Sappho’s poem Some there are who say that the fairest thing seen Sappho openly mocks the men’s warrior culture. In one stanza she states, “…I would rather see before my eyes than Lydia’s chariots in all the glory armed for battle.” . The meaning of this stanza could be that she would rather look upon the face of her lover than see the chariots of battle.
When Tybalt is killed, Lady Capulet, Lord Capulet, and Paris think she is unhappy because of her cousin’s death, which makes Paris respond to this conflict by scheduling the wedding earlier to make Juliet happy again, and that’s one of the biggest conflicts since she told Friar Lawrence she would rather do the most dangerous things than marry Paris. Paris is a very kind-hearted man who treats Juliet like she’s very delicate, he still loved her even though she denied it when he called her his wife. Although he is arrogant, he loves Juliet and he treats the Capulets with admiration and formality, he highly respects Friar Lawrence and gets annoyed with Romeo at the end because
Curley’s wife is portrayed as being a whore – but this is only due to the way she dresses, her provocative ways and the way she acts around men, as if she is aware of her femininity. This could suggest that she is only like this because she is bored, like it is something to do – something interesting for a change. She is constantly trying to get people to notice her. But, because of Lennie’s purity and innocence, he doesn’t see her in the way other men do – a sexual object. When Steinbeck quotes “And because she had confided in him, she moved closer to Lennie and sat beside him”, it is clear to the audience that Curley’s Wife is using her sexuality as an object to create some sort of excitement for herself.
Nevertheless Larkin ‘got it back in the end’ which illustrates Larkin not fully conforming to her results in rejection. In the ultimate stanza Larkin criticizes his own personality ‘I was too selfish… easily bored to love’. This could suggest he is too simply mundane and egocentric for someone to love him. Alternatively it could be appear that Larkin is presenting women in a unenthusiastic light as he could also be suggesting that there can’t be one women with the right appearance and personality therefore he is selfish as he needs two women to meet his requirements. This point is reinforced in the second stanza where he describes meeting ‘beautiful twice’ which could demonstrate he met two sides of beauty one in a character and one
This implies that he may be suppressing his feelings towards Othello. He might also be in denial about his sexuality- his reasons for plotting against Othello do not make much sense and are not realistic- claims Othello slept with his wife, but he’s not sure but will go with it anyway< weak argument. Hides his motive, goes against S.T Coleridge< malicious malignity. Iago does have a reason; he is in love with Othello and wants to posses him completely. He is also jealous of Cassio, perhaps he thought he would get the position of lieutenant as he felt he and
This can be shown in the ‘Proof of Marriage’ source as the phratry must accept that a child is legitimate, otherwise property will not be given to the son. However it can also be said that it is in fact wives who fear their husbands and not the other way round. In the Eurastophenes’ murder case, Euphilites laughed at his wife when she suggested he ‘mauled the maid which could indicate women were in fear of how sexually controlling their husbands could be and how they could still get away with it. In the Naerea source is also shows men can be abusive to women with little to no consequence as Phrynion gets away with his abuse towards Naerea. You could also view the violence as a cry of fear and other controlling behaviour could emphasise that.
and this is shown on the essay when she writes this ”If, by chance , I find another person more suitable as a wife than the wife I already have, I want the liberty to replace my present wife with another one” Really, is sad but is the truth, men do think women’s are objects they can’t take and leave when they want and demand things and expect to received without giving. As I read the essay it was stupid to see that they didn’t realize that all the wife’s duties could also be done by men, like cleaning, working, taking care of the kids, and of course pleasing their wife’s when she
Mrs. Slade knew Mrs. Ansley had liked her husband, Delphin Slade. She believed that pointing out the fact that she was the one he married and that she lost out on him would show her superiority over her. In an attempt to put Mrs. Ansley in her place, she tells her that the letter calling for a secret meeting at the Coliseum was in fact written by her. She says that it was a ploy to trick her into waiting for him, which caused her to get sick. After this first round of surprises Mrs. Slade assumes she is
She stands higher in the hierarchy, and feels that she has power over Jean. Jean is cautiously hesitant, and understand the risks involved in a love relationship with the count's daughter, but when Miss Julie finally almost offers herself, he can not resist the temptation, he starts flirting back, which means that they have sex with each other. Afterwards, it is up to the two possible consequences and the drama reaches its tragic point. Jeans inviting charm instead goes over to a very nasty tone and the mood becomes suddenly much worse. They begin to despise each other.
The reason for his lack of affection may be because E.B.B is being too demanding and obstinate of her own perspectives of what love is and how she would like to be loved. • She is also stereotyping the way men perceive women, and the only reason why men fall in love with women is for their appearance and physique. This is interpreted through the accumulative listing from line 3 to 6, when she was telling Robert Browning not to say he loves her for those superficial reasons. • The themes from this poem are – love and unconditional love, mockery and superficiality. • The techniques used in this poem are – accumulative listing, from line 3 to 6 and emotive language, used throughout the poem, but especially from line
