Malvolio’s major flaw is self-love; and this trait leads him to be prideful, value himself above others, and believe that he is the victim in any given circumstance. Malvolio’s deep pride in himself makes him feel a deep sense of achievement and perceived prowess in courtship. While conversing about Olivia with Sir Toby, Sir Andrew, and Fabian, Malvolio remarks, “To be Count Malvolio” (2.5.34). Here Malvolio is showing his ambition to climb the social ladder by courting Olivia, who already has many other suiters, including Sir Andrew and Orsino. Malvolio is showing that he does not really love Olivia, but just wants to use her to rise in status.
Brutus is a loving character that over the play is well known by everybody and his love and caring trait is known through the following quote: “O, he sits high in all the people’s hearts; / and that which would appear offence in us, / his countenance, like richest alchemy, / will change to virtue and to worthiness.” (I, iii; 157-160) In this scene, Caska wants Brutus to be in the conspiracy as he complements him because Brutus was well known and definitely a great leader. Brutus also has a deep respect with his wife and didn’t worry about himself first. “Portia what mean you? Wherefore rise you now? / It is not for your health, thus to commit / your weak condition to the raw cold morning.” (II, i; 234-236) Brutus is a loving character through this quote because normally in that time, women weren’t as well recognized as now but Brutus really cares ad loves his wife.
However, for Algernon, Cecily’s suitor and Jack’s close friend, Jack Worthing is like any other young gentleman in London: self-satisfying and living solely for himself. The audience gets to see both these aspects of Jack, but does his duality actually matter to the play and to the audience? Who truly is Jack? Firstly, the duality aspects give a neat progression to Jack, and interest the audience by showing his development throughout the play. Due to numerous circumstances, the secure confidence that Jack has of knowing who he is (Jack Worthing, orphan) is shattered to a disequilibrium.
A sense of belonging can be easily achieved based on our relationships with the people around us. It is these bonds that bring out our true emotions and character and shape who we are and who we feel comfortable being. As You Like It features the relationship between Rosalind and Orlando; one of instant love and admiration for each other and so we see the idea of fate; However although it may start out simple, hazards arise as the plot unfolds and we see Rosalind forced to pose as a male. Out of Orlando’s sheer lust and infatuation for Rosalind he simply cannot be complacent until he is reunited with his one true love he states ‘to you I give myself for I am yours’ introducing a physical ownership and belonging to one another. Similarly Brick Lane looks at how Nanzeen feels as though she belongs when she takes part in an affair, a relationship with obvious difficulties.
At the start of the play Eddie is talking to Catherine and it is clear to see how much that Eddie loves Catherine, though we are not aware of the extent of his emotions towards her and we also do not see their tragic potential. "Oh if your mother could see you now!" This characterisation shows Eddie is very proud of his niece and really cares for her. However it is not obvious that his feelings for Catherine are too strong and therefore wrong, this becomes clearer as the play progresses. The stage directions at this point in the play show that Catherine strives on Eddie's attention and needs his approval to make her happy, this sets up the relationship for the audience to see and
Of the grandeur of Lancelot, Derek Brewer says, "In the portrayal of Lancelot we generally recognize a vein of extravagance. He is the most obsessive of lovers, as he is the most beloved of ladies, and the greatest of fighters" (8). To achieve this feat, Malory has molded Lancelot to fit the idea of the perfect knight and the perfect lover. The perfect knight is defined by the Chivalric Code set out in Le Morte D'Arthur as "only to fight in just causes, at all times to be merciful, and at all times to put the service of ladies foremost" (Malory 69). In this code, Lancelot is to be found exemplary.
My mom can tell my dad anything and she knows that she can trust him, I mean come on; she married the guy for crying out loud. A definition of a good guy friend would be; a best friend, a companion, and your life partner. In addition, there can never be a “Mr. Perfect” in the world; they don’t exist. But there are guys that exist who are not so perfect; actually there bad, bad like devils.
Dorian now believes “beauty is a form of Genius- is higher, indeed, than Genius, as needs no explanation” and allows himself to be influenced by Lord Henry’s charming words and brilliant intellect (24). Dorian, longing to stay as beautiful as the painting Basil has created of him, becomes “jealous of everything whose beauty does not die. I am jealous of the portrait you have painted of me. Why should it keep what I must lose?” (29). He becomes locked into his current young, gorgeous appearance, in the mist of his losing his beautiful soul.

Topic: Describe your ideal lover Lao Tzu said, “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage”. It is exactly true for anyone who once experienced the feeling of love. Like any girl at the age of 19, I also have a dream about my ideal lover who can always share and sympathize with me in this complex life. The very first thing drawing my attention is his personality rather than his appearance. Although I know that, in fact, it is obviously difficult for us to find someone that meets our demands, I believe I can.
