In the poem, the narrator was having an affair with a lord. As they weren’t married and had a child, the narrator was seen as impure by the society and so, he cast her by choosing her cousin Kate. During the whole poem she talks about how her love for him was truthful while he used her like a “golden knot”, like an object made her a fool. She compares her situation to Kate’s and in some way reproves her choice of accepting him by “If she had fooled not me but you/ If you stood where I stand/… I would have spit into his face/and not have taken his hand”. We can also notice jealousy when she compares “… I sit in howl and dust/you sit in gold and sing” and “He lifted you from the mean estate/to sit with him on high/I was a cottage-maiden/… Contented with my cottage-mates,/ Not mindful I was fair”.
This is the reason as to Nick and Jordan’s relationship falling apart. Another woman who helps support this thesis statement is one named Myrtle Wilson.

Willy displays another fatal flaw, he is a liar to his family. Willy has an affair with a woman and even gives her the stockings that he bought for his wife Linda. This could be the reason for why Happy believes success is being with as many women as possible, and is also the destruction of any trust Biff had for Willy. Willy Loman displays many
He cheats on her, and when she finds out, it seems he could not care less. But Daisy cannot even leave him because she is too scared, and has no one to run to. Through Daisy’s situation, Fitzgerald is expressing that even when people are treated horribly, they still rely on wealth and high status. Even in society today, we see people deteriorating because of their goals to meet society’s standards. The neglect from her husband causes Daisy to wilt, much like the flower if it were treated harshly.
Blanche’s husband commits suicide after Blanche finds him in bed with another man. The death leaves Blanch feeling lonely. Her promiscuity stems from the fact that she feels unwanted. In the play Blanch flirts with the mailman, is fired for fooling around with a student, and clings to Mitch, a man with little to offer. In addition, Blanch constantly wears cheap provocative clothing to draw men’s attention.
In the story The Great Gatsby, there are many corrupted relationships. George & Myrtle, Myrtle & Tom, Tom & Daisy, Daisy & Gatsby, and Gatsby & everyone are all perfect examples of misleading relationships seen in the novel. Fitzgerald may seem pessimistic in portraying every relationship as a fraud. The cheating and affairs that go on throughout the book show that there is no substance in any of the relationships to keep them bonded. By sneaking behind their loved ones back and having an affair with one of the other characters shows betrayal to their partner.
To prove Daisy’s reasoning fro marrying Tom, she explained, “’Rich girls don’t marry poor boys’” (Fitzgerald, 9). Daisy would reel Gatsby in and then push him away and keep reeling him in and pushing him away. Daisy “played” Gatsby just to make Tom jealous. Daisy had to prove to Tom that if he does not want her, than some other guy will. Jay Gatsby explains how he feels by saying, They were careless people, Tom and Daisy-they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that they had made (Fitzgerald, 166).
Hamlet is caged in the fear of being exposed for who he truly is. Critics misdiagnose the protagonist as a victim of sexual desire. A portrait of 17th century society would illustrate the dejected women hiding behind the male figure. Writers have longed believed that Shakespeare was just another male writer writing about male issues, but instead he depicts the corruption women faced in such a scrutinizing society. Through “Hamlet”, Shakespeare is able to share his views of heterosexual relationships and express his feminist side.
He thinks marriage reduces the quality of a man’s life. Benedick is the bachelor who is also fearful of the idea of cuckoldry “I will do myself to trust none” and he would choose to live a “bachelor”. While Beatrice is a fellow Bachelorette who thinks all men are not worthy of her “not till God makes a man of some other metal than earth” Beatrice is a very soft-hearted lady, but does not show this. At the very first mention of Benedick in the play, Beatrice begins with insults and the audiences soon notice that she is trying to hide the fact that she has true feelings for Benedick. However Although Beatrice’s comments to Benedick are considered as rude, the fact that they are so witty, and do that to amuse each other, not a sour tone included, shows us that she doesn't really mean most of the things she says.
In the beginning Katherina is known throughout Pauda as the town’s biggest shrew. She gained this reputation through her bitter behavior to others. To the people of Pauda it seemed she would never be submissive to a man. In fact, if she was not taken in by a man who loved her, “Her care should be to comb your noodle with a three legged stool and point your face and use you like a fool.” (I.I. 64-65) Every man in Pauda knew what a shrew she seemed to be and assumed she could never be loved,”You may go to the devil’s dam!
