He is proud of her and shows it to the public, he is protective and he is loyal to her. This quote conveys “my child is yet a stranger in the world, she hath not seen change of fourteen years; Let two more summers wither in their pride, ere we may think her ripe to be bride.” This quote shows that he respects her and shows that he loves her and he tells Paris that she is too young to marry him. Later he changes his mind and wants her to marry Paris. But when Juliet refuses to marry Paris he then immediately grows angry as the head of the family he doesn’t like to be challenged. This quote suggests “Hang thee, young baggage, and disobedient wretch!

Therefore, Romeo Montague is indeed, Impulsive and Devoted. On the other hand, Juliet, the only child and heir of the Capulets, begins the play as a naïve child who thought so little about love and marriage. But she then made it a priority, when she met Romeo. She was happy enough to obey her parents about marrying Paris, in where they think he is the ideal man for her, but all of that changes when Romeo became a part of her life. Unfortunately, “[her] only love sprung from [her] only hate!
The Rose-Scented Edith Mikaila Smith In today's world, "image" seems to be the most important element that impacts our lives. Often, when we attempt to portray someone or something we are not, we are faced with misunderstanding and failure. In the short story, "Anointed With Oils", Alden Nowlan, introduced Edith, who was ashamed of her past. Trying to escape the disgrace of her family and her home, Edith moved to a boarding house, where she attempted to conform by dressing and acting like royalty. Despite her efforts to blend in, she went too far and other people saw her as being conceited.
Also, her lack of intelligence has left her with no job and an inability to get a job. In the story, there are many reasons contributing to Jean’s feeling of emptiness and difficulty in her life. To begin, her husband, Ross feels as though he has married beneath himself, and he does not love her anymore. Their marriage was most likely caused by Jean getting pregnant with their son, which made Ross feel like he had to marry her out of force. In the story, Ross specifically tells their son, Kevin that he should try not to marry beneath himself because he will end up stuck in the same situation as him.
It was hard for her to receive so much attention from her father, but have her mother abandon her emotionally. Hadaller wrote “The clear distinction in the novel between Helen’s child Maudie and Milton’s Peyton highlights the intense polarization in the family.”(Hadaller58) It was a twisted situation for the family, Milton choosing Peyton and Helen consuming herself with Maudie. In the end it only caused trouble for everyone. “The dependant Maudie and the fiercely independent Peyton are set up in the novel to dramatize the family’s fracture. Both parents seek to love and adore one child to the exclusion of the
Another way to describe Eddie would be as an anti-hero: a man who has flawed in the face of fate. Other characters in the play include Eddie's wife Beatrice, a very caring woman, especially when it comes to their niece Catherine. Catherine is a young woman growing up fast and has been brought up as an orphan by her Uncle and Aunt. During the play we see the arrival of Beatrice's cousins Marco and Rodolfo. The cousins add tension to the play as they are illegal
Stella is the wife of Stanley and also the main character in my opinion. She’s a huge dope, who’s fallen in love with the wrong guy. Even after Stanley hits her she still comes back to him “There is the sound of a blow [and] Stella cries out”. She’s blinded by how things used to be between them when they first started dating. Stella is willing to look past everything Stanley does because she loves him and that makes her the fool of the play.
Knowledge is not always power because the more you know does not necessarily mean you understand what you have learned. In the short story “Everyday Use”, education seemed to make a rift in the relationship not only between the mother and the daughter, but also between the sisters. Dee was one to always try and outsmart her family members always seeking answers knowing no one knew. It was mama who eventually got the community together to help send Dee to school so her daughter would be happy and satisfied. The values of heritage seem to have been lost with the gain of knowledge when Dee has gone to college.
Children need their mother to give them the right advice and in this case Amanda seems to be pushing them in a direction where they really do not want to listen to what she has to say. Tom and Laura both are both very abnormal because of the way they have been raised by their mother. Laura is crippled and her mother Amanda wants to do the best she can to keep her safe but is trying to brainwasher her to do things she had not been able to do when she was her age. Tom is the more rebellious one of the family; he disobeys his mother and tries to find his place in the world without much of her help. While Amanda, Tom, and Laura all live in their own fantasy world, another character in this story seems to be the reality part of it all.
