Beatrice is cynical and witty; she doesn’t conform when it comes to the role of women in Elizabethan time. In terms of how males view females, there is a theme of cuckoldry (men who married unfaithful wives). This is shown in the first scene when Leonato confirms that Hero is his daughter, ‘Her mother hath many times told me so’, a joke at her expense, implying she is unfaithful to him. In a conversation between Claudio and Benedick, they talk about Hero. Claudio asks if he ‘noted’ her, Benedick tells him he did not, but he ‘looked on her’.
Oh my girl’s perfect; if I were a chronic invalid I’d-well, I think I’d rather be in Jenny’s hands. There must be times…but there! I always wanted a brilliant daughter… and never quite understood why I got an angel instead” (1082.) It is clearly stated that Slade is jealous of the women Barbara is becoming and
She always seemed to want the best for Juliet and do good things for her but she also seemed confused throughout the story. One thing she did in the story that shows this was when she conspired with Friar Laurence about a plan to give the new made bridegroom their honeymoon night. She wanted Juliet to still have her honeymoon although Romeo had been banished. She saw this as a way for her to show how much she cared and it truly worked. On the other hand, when Juliet was in desperate need for help, the Nurse didn’t do her very much good.
Her self–centeredness and unrealistic perception of reality cause her to ignore her child, deceive her husband, fall into promiscuity, and go so severely into dept that she offers her body in payment. This same distorted vision of reality also blinds her from the intentions of those who use her. For example, she fails to see that Rodolphe is only using her as a sex toy rather than valuing her as a cherished lover. She repeated: “I have a lover! a lover!” delighting at the idea as if a second puberty had come to her.
Analysis: Juliet loves Romeo. She is sad that Romeo has to be a Montague, the rival of her family, the Capulets. Juliet is very daring and caring. Juliet mirrors some girls in today’s society because some girls might disobey their father’s or parents’ wishes to get what they want. A theme in the story is “Overcoming Society, Family and Judgment” because everybody in Verona knows about the feud and Juliet still loves Romeo.
Hephaestus made Aphrodite a golden girdle, which was a magical belt that would make anyone who wore it irresistible. Hephaestus was always working in his workshop, and so he couldn’t watch over Aphrodite all the time. She was unfaithful to him, and cheated on him with a lot of the Gods. Hephaestus was ignorant of the infidelity because Aphrodite would bathe in the sea and become a virgin again. Aphrodite fell in love with Ares, Hephaestus’s brother.
Due to Desdemona’s never ending, continuous love for Othello, she ultimately played a role in her own death. The love Desdemona feels for Othello is seen in the fact that she goes against her family and marries the man she loves, not the man that may necessarily be more suited for her. Brabantio, Desdemona’s father, believes that Othello lures Desdemona away with his witchcraft and that her life would be much better if they never married. However, Desdemona ignores her father’s instruction; despite the fact Brabantio believes their relationship is unnatural: “She [Desdemona] is abused, stol’n from me and corrupted by spells and medicines bought of mountebanks; for natures so preposterously to err, being not deficit, blind or lame of sense, sans witchcraft could not” (Othello, 1.3.60-64). At first, Brabantio believes that his daughter was tricked by Othello, that he stole her away with his magic spells and witchcraft.
· He tells Ophelia he loves her and does not love her, thinks she should never have trusted him but wants her to go away to a nunnery for her own protection.

In the attempt to save her husband s life and pride, she secretly borrowed money to use for his recovery from a deadly illness. She is then faced with the consequences of her dishonest practice, even though her intentions were always honorable. Feminist ideas are clearly presented all through the play, but are most easily seen in the dependence society put on women, Nora’s changing definitions of freedom, and Ibsen’s portrayal of women as self-sacrificial and cunning, using society s view of them as a foil. Ibsen’s play, A Doll’s House uses Nora, the main character to portray how woman were treated in the 19th century. Nora’s husband, Torvald constantly talks down to her, as if she were his child, instead of wife, “HEL.
Hermia is in love with Lysander despite the Athenian rules. She cannot understand her own behavior since she has fallen in love and this is evident when she says to Theuses ‘I know not by what power I am made bold’ (act1 scene 1). This quote shows that Hermia does not usually act in this unpredictable way and that love is emotional rather than rational. Love is unpredictable and does not always make sense. This is shown through the conversation between Hermia and Lysander where Shakespeare uses repetition to compare different challenging situations where two people have fallen in love.
