It is seen when Lewis is introduced, his views on love are very similar to that of his girlfriend Lucy and best friend Nick. He does not hold much value on fidelity due to the importance of the Vietnam War in his life. Lewis expresses to the patients that “love is not so important nowadays.” It is through the play itself, “Cosi Fan Tutte: Women are like that”, a play about “test[ing]..girls fidelity”, that Lewis reevaluates his opinions and values and learns to form his own. Lewis changes to having a more traditional view on romance and is able to accept that it is important in relationships. This change in Lewis is apparent when he describes the opera as being about “important things, like love and fidelity” and when he reacts genuinely hurt to when he discovers that his girlfriend Lucy has been having sex with Nick.
This was a time when marriage was criticised due to the lack of emotional involvement and loyalty was also questioned in committed relationships. In the beginning, Lewis agrees with Nick and Lucy claiming that “love is not so important nowadays”. His statements surprised some of the patients and they were “looking at Lewis as if he was mad”. To characters like Henry, Roy and Ruth, love and fidelity are very significant in a relationship. Nowra however shows that through Lewis’ discussions with the patients and the ironies found in Cosi Fan Tutte helps Lewis to change his view on love and relationships.
Holden’s perception of phoniness causes him to become critical and suspicious and detaches him from society. His relationship with June whom he meets midway through his journey of discovery fails to flourish because he cannot commit fully to her he refuses altogether the ‘phoniness’ of a partial commitment. Holden does not know how to make a connection without becoming phony himself. In the end however holder comes to a accommodation with the world and this change is seen especially in the last pages when he describes his affection for phoebe: ‘…I felt so damn happy, if you want to know the truth. I don’t know why.
From my point of view when I evaluate the case I come to the conclusion that whenever the person feel uncomfortable with the approach and they try to stop the other person, without any luck, it is harassment. In This case Mrs. Gilbury clearly stated to Mr. Lewiston that they were just friend and that she was happily married. This could have been more than enough for him to stop his behavior, but no, he continued
With watching the video, Alan was dreading the “employee’s evaluation from the very beginning, this was something he did not like doing. The case with Gretchen, he seemed to me to be in the attack mode. He was prejudging her as to why she was not turning the work out faster. As our text explains, “When we prejudge others’ communication, we sacrifice learning information and new perspectives that might enlarge our thinking (Van Styke, 1999). I believe Alan thought she was probably just being slack, in reality Gretchen was taking her time and getting the jobs done with high standards.
Its almost like they’re making fun of him for talking to her & she’s embarrassed. 6. How does the author emphasize Jin’s emotions? What other examples have you noticed from throughout the book? He’s not going to fight or make a big deal about it so he agrees but is secretly angry about it.
In my opinion he is not showing any emotions towards her but it all seems calm however is not what it seems. When Stephen hears Isabelle and Azaire, Isabelle is pleading towards him showing she has no impact over him and he can do whatever he likes as when he was beating her up. 'It turned into a gasp which, because of its sudden move into a higher register, was clearly one of pain.' Stephen can tell an unease between their relationship and knows something is not right about their relationship therefore questions Isabelle about it after he has heard what just happened. She is desperate and you can tell she is very upset.
Neither of them loves the men that are proposing to them nor do they want to be with them. In “Our Mutual Friend” Lizzie is more blunt and rude telling Mr. Headstone that she doesn’t want to marry him. She turns him down cold, but in “Pride and Prejudice” Lizzie has more of an elegant way of telling Mr. Collins that she doesn’t want his hand in marriage. She has more of a heart when it comes to telling him that she isn’t interested. In telling both men that they were not interested in marriage both women used to appeal to logos, they both had sensible answers and explanations to the proposal.
Throughout the story, the characters bicker back and forth about why it is better to be intelligent over being beautiful and vice versa. I believe Jane Martin is trying to tell us that there really is no answer to this controversial question and that this is a problem that people deal with on a daily basis. She believes that neither is better and both people should be content with the card they were dealt. There are perks and treats for being either beautiful or
Kate’s quote “I by thee have watched” shows Hotspur having a bad nightmare and shows that he has got doubts about this rebellion. The passage seems to suggest that Hotspur does not care about Kate and her feelings as the war he is about to embark on takes priority. It also gives us a view of the role of women in marriage. Despite the general impression that women were not equal to men in Shakespearean times, Kate does not appear to be intimidated by Hotspur. Whilst the tone in which she speaks to him express concern, she also speaks to him in a bold and assertive tone.
