She despoils him not only of two children, but also of a wife, a father-in-law, and a kingdom. For all her stoicalness, though, she has one weakness, and it happens to be the focus of all her malice: Jason. Other persons matter not to her; any emotions she may feel for them are fleeting. Despite this, Jason, of all the individuals in the world, has managed to cultivate in Medea an enmity so overwhelming that she spends every waking moment devising new means with which to enact her sick justice. Nora Helmer is the very epitome of a reprobate in Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House.

While Iago manipulates Desdemona’s reputation to cause the downfall of almost every primary character in Shakespeare’s Othello, Desdemona still exhibits power that defies her role as a female in a patriarchal society. Her reputation is subject both to Iago’s shrewd attacks and to her society’s structure; which unknowingly puts the men at risk while they think they are securing their own safety by confining these women. Desdemona is treated as a product exchanged by men and is smothered by Othello in his efforts to protect other men and keep her sexuality contained. Iago objectifies Desdemona as he manipulates Othello’s perspective of her until Othello literally deconstructs his wife, despite her innocence. Though she seems the stereotypical female, Desdemona breaks free of gender constraints as she defies her father and exhibits complete control over Othello at the beginning of the play.
However, as the novel advances, her true character begins to unveil. Daisy Buchanan is seen as the true villain in The Great Gatsby for her materialism, selfishness, and extreme greed. One of the many questions the reader has about Daisy is why she tolerates her husband, Tom Buchanan’s, infidelities. And although according to Glenn Settle in “Fitzgerald's Daisy: The Siren Voice,” both “Daisy and Tom are careless people” (118), Daisy is shockingly more ruthless. In “Her Story and Daisy Buchanan,” writer Leland Person states, “Daisy expresses the same desire to escape the temporal world” (251).

I was a secretive person who went to great measures to cover my feelings. In turn, this veil prevents a clear identification of the source of my
Although she has lost all connection to this part of her life, Stanley is not fooled by Blanche’s aristocratic pretenses. Blanche does not want to accept that she is now equal to people like Stanley. She has adopted idealistic and fantastical values to separate herself from average people and to hide the mistakes she has made as well as hiding who she really is as a person. In this play Tennessee Williams explores the complexity of the relationship between these two characters and their inability to understand each other. The abuse that Blanche goes through leads her unstable and emotional nature to the point of mental insanity.
Like many women in the story, Nurse Ratchet is portrayed as a terrifying character who aims to threaten and manipulate others. Much of the suffering endured by the men in the ward is a direct result of Nurse Ratchets’s evil. One aspect of Nurse Ratchet’s personality is that she has no qualms with being dishonest or deceiving, as long as it helps her to establish control.
