The universal truth behind this story is that the innate differences between men and women coupled with lack of communication will cause a marriage to stagnate and become an uneasy compromise. Insensitive and inconsiderate of his wife's feelings, Michael openly admits his attraction to other women. Frances wants to know his true feelings and he gives them to her cold, "I got all this stuff accumulated in me because I've been thinking about it for ten years and now you've asked for it and here it is." (7) He does not acknowledge his wife's despair; he knows he is wrong and yet he feels righteous because so far it has only been a physical attraction. Michael blithely dismisses his wife's pleas for reassurance.
When Petruchio says the line “What duty they do owe their lords and husbands” I would want the other female characters to gasp in shock at what Petruchio said but as Katherine I would not gasp and rather ponder for a moment putting my hand up to my face to clearly show that the character is honestly thinking about this. I would completely
She starts to make excuses for him not answering. When she calls again her lover doesn't pick up avoiding her, which makes her wonder what he is doing.The she is obsessed over every action he has done. Feeling rejected and avoided from her lover, she is rationalizing his actions in order because she think she loves him. If she accepts the real truth about their relationship and the situation, she know it will make her feel less of lady. The society as put in everyones head to be.
This also could be used to describe to describe his view on life seeing that he thought people were “boring” if they were just like everyone else and cared about the little details. The author also uses italics to emphasize words like in this sentence: “I mean if they’re running and they don’t look where they’re going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them”. Just as the Salinger used italics for the same purpose, to show how Holden only cared about the main idea, which in this case was his unrealistic role as the “Catcher in the Rye”. Holden seemed to try to get the point of what he was trying to tell his sister while she kept on correcting him. Another strategy used by the author to effectively
A lack of this fundamental building block in a relationship can cause many disagreements and arguments. In “Say Yes”, by Tobias Wolff, the relationship between the two people has gone astray partly due to their ineffective communication: “Sometimes his wife got this look where she pinched her brows together and bit her lower lip and started down at something. When he saw her like this he knew he should keep his mouth shut, but he never did. Actually it made him talk more” (74). From here, the couple proceeded to get into quite the argument, showing that their communication habits are, indeed, unhealthy because the husband continued to talk, even though he knew it would lead to a disagreement.
The most ironic thing that the reader should notice while analyzing this poem is that even though they are in two different time settings, the same persuasions are used as an argument in Marvell’s time as well as the present. Although he uses love and time as reasons why she should have sex with him, his main focus is her body. Marvell utilizes three distinctly different attitudes in each of the three stanzas to convince the reader that it is okay to make this argument to a woman. The young lady in “To His Coy Mistress” is definitely not to be taken for a mere fool because the narrator, an old man, would not have gone to great lengths to convince her to give her body to him. Marvell’s use of the word “coy” to describe the young lady shows her as bashful, hidden, and ‘a hard-to-get’ woman, in effect showing that she is still a virgin.
He’s basically warning her not to her innocence get the best of her and to be very careful when it comes to giving her love to Hamlet. If this is not amazingly helpful advice then I don’t know what is. It’s important for her to hear this because people can be so blind when it comes to love. Polonius as well gives some parental advice to his daughter Ophelia. He calls her foolish for believing anything Hamlet says to her.
The man only downplays the abortion and conveys his desire to continue his traveling lifestyle. Jig wishes to end the conversation and begs "Would you please please please please please please please stop talking?" (555). This shows how much she dislikes the man's unwelcoming thoughts towards the child. Jig is not in favor of an abortion and she shows this through her sarcastic reactions.
Deception in both extracts is represented as emotional turmoil, and Bronte has written her novel ignoring the stereotypes of her time and has shown that men can be emotionally unstable as well as women. However she did write it under the male alias Currer Bell, so she had more freedom as to what she could write. Rhys had more leeway with what she could write as she wrote in the sixties, and has shown that a person’s actions do affect everyone, even though they may not realise it, Rochester’s actions effect Antoinette in a great way however he doesn’t see this and doesn’t feel the need to discuss issues with his wife. ‘We won’t talk about it now’. Both extracts show key parts of the novels involving deception.
“They call me Katherine, that do talk of me” (2.1.182). In using her shortened name it is a form of diminution, in which he seeks to reduce the personal strength using her full name gives to her. Because she has never met her match in wits and pertinacious character she is easily effected by his actions, and as soon as he makes it clear that she will answer to Kate, she becomes a much more vulnerable character than originally thought possible. From that point he is able to slowly conform her, “she will rationally choose to please him and encourage his generosity rather than, as he says, continue evermore crossing him in futile imitation of birds whose wings have been clipped-birds that are already enclosed but nonetheless continue to try and fly free” (Boose, 180). Shakespeare also takes creative liberty in using words
