This indicates that Alice is a polite and understanding girl. We also discover she loves to dance. Before Charlie is about to compete in the Ballarat Mile, Alice gives him a letter only to be opened just before Charlie runs in the Ballarat Mile. It stated “Run like the wind, love Alice” This suggests Alice does feel for Charlie, and at the end of the novel it is
However, Humbert's lyrical rapture over the great American landscape (as well its the banal motels) suggest there is more than just a passing affection for America. Coupled with his insatiable desire and affection for the all American girl the novels true representation of America is far from straight forward. Dolores' obsession with consumer culture and all its trappings cause her to gravitate towards Humbert. As we are told by our high brow narrator he bares more than a passing resemblance to an “actor chap on whom Lo has a crush.” (Pt.1, Ch.11, Pg.43) This clearly defines the origins of Dolores' initial attraction towards Humbert. He even alters his appearance to deliberately play up to the likeness of the actor Dolores admires,which we are told

Athens (The world’s First Democracy) 508 BCE vs. Canadian Democracy Now Leadership: Many years ago, the founders of democracy were Athens. Comparing their democracy and their Athenian government to the Canadian democracy today is a quiet a drastic change and it definitely took many steps to bring democracy where it stands today. For Athens one man was the leader of the Assembly and the Athenian Government. The leader had to be a male and was also chosen by only males. A new man for the title was chosen every day.
He appears to be solely interested in women’s sexuality, shamelessly objectifying them. For instance, when Claudio asks whether the world could ‘buy such a jewel’ as Hero, Benedick replies ‘yea, and a case to put it into’. The objectification of Hero as something valuable and desirable (but with no human emotion) is taken further by Benedick; his play upon Claudio’s romantic metaphor is witty but deeply sexist, as he is calling Hero worthless. Whilst a modern audience might see this as derogatory, an Elizabethan audience would have potentially been indifferent; in that age, men were superior; they could be an eligible bachelor, but if they married they would look for a chaste and wealthy wife- talk of ‘buying’ Hero is in a sense quite literal as Claudio would be ‘buying’ into her wealth. On the other hand, Shakespeare hints that this is a façade.
At the Netherfield ball Austen shows how Mrs Bennet’s overly direct, loud comments are an embarrassment to her husband and daughters as she loudly tells the guests on her table her mission to marry off her daughters. Although her manners are rather intolerable she herself believes she has good manners and her behaviour is acceptable. The social etiquette of the early nineteenth century was very different from todays as in it was expected for women in the Bennet’s social scale to better their position in life by marrying someone of a higher class and with money, women had no real choice of their marriage partner themselves it was usually their parents had to choose the right suitor as demonstrated by Mrs Bennet. Elizabeth found her mother rather blush making, “Her mother would talk of her views in the same intelligible tone. Elizabeth blushed and blushed again with same vexation”.
Faisal Waheed Prof. Daley English Marya Mannes, a well known American author and critic once said, “If American men are obsessed with money, American women are obsessed with weight. The men talk of gain, the women talk of loss.” Mannes was always known for her caustic but insightful observations of American life (Marya Mannes,wiki), and this quote is no exception. When reading this quote, I strongly agreed to what Mannes said about the generalization of men and women. But I disagree when the quote only refers to Americans, because this generalization about men and women is predominantly true no matter which nationality. The short stories “The Necklace” by Guy de Maupassant, “A Doll's House” by Henrik Ibsen, and “A Raisin in the Sun” by Lorraine Hansberry, are some examples that support Mannes observation of men and women.
Mary’s curiosity is first shown when she arrives in England. Even though she is a selfish, illtempered child, Mary finds herself listening to the adults talking about Misselthwaite Manor, her destination. She is attracted to everything new, and is interested in the things she had never seen in India, where she spent most of her life. On her carriage ride to the manor, “She sat and looked out the window, curious to see something of the road over which she was being driven to the queer place Mrs. Medlock had spoken of.” Mary is a rude, bored little girl, but this unconscious curiosity shows that she is capable of being interested in something. Mary’s interest in her new environment shows that no matter how vile she acted, she had a curious side.
When the story begins, we are not introduced with Clym who has been in Paris at that time but returns soon to the heath and his return to the heath alters the destinies of several persons including himself. Eustacia is, as described by Hardy, as “Queen of Night” whose eyes are pagan, are too fancy that a whole winter does not contain darkness enough to form its shadow. She is a woman of nineteen, tall, straight and graceful. Both Clym and Eustacia are creatures of impulse and live more by passion than by reason. Eustacia always longs for passionate love and her great desire is “to be loved to madness”.
Switzerland is also a country that I have lots of experience in; I lived in Geneva, Switzerland for my junior year in high school and my dad still lives in Zurich, Switzerland in which I make very frequent trips to visit. In addition, I have many friends that I met while living in Geneva that I still talk to on a regular basis. Living in Switzerland was a very important life experience for me. It shaped me to be who I am today and I was able to learn about many different cultures and different ways of life. More specifically, Switzerland is generally divided into four different cultures because of the four main languages that are spoken there: Italian, French, German, and Swiss-German.
