She is cunning, resourceful, and brave. She definitely does not fit into the passive role that has been given to the more popular heroines. As in many fairy tales, the beautiful daughter is basically given away as if she is an object to a man who wants to marry her. Of course the girl’s father approves of the suitor because he appears rich, but the girl is not as impressed. She, “did not like him as much as a bride should like her bridegroom,” (Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm).
When Romeo first sets sight Juliet he is stunned by the sight, the overwhelming feeling he experiences is made obvious by him when he sighs 'O', which shows the audience that he has an over flow of emotions and longs to be with Juliet. Romeo sees her as a delicate specimen of life 'beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear.' Juliet is seen to glow up the room with such charm that it is hard for Romeo to see, Shakespeare shows this instant impression of Juliet by using oxymoron's to show how she stands out : 'So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows '. Romeo see's Juliet as a superior being and that he is unworthy of her greatness 'make blessed my rude hand' and realizes he was gullible to think he knew what love was until that night 'Forswear it, sight!- For I

Obedience was used in order to provide an example of how girls should act towards their superiors, in particular, their parents. A tremendous focus is on Little Red Riding Hood’s appearance as the superlative ‘prettiest’ displays, this leads people to be ‘fond’ and to ‘dote’ upon her, increasing her vulnerability as ‘predators’ are drawn to her or as Perrault wanted to show, men. Also, the repetition of the attributive ‘little’ alongside the common noun ‘girl’ highlights Little Red Riding Hood’s defencelessness. However, naivety is her ultimate downfall leading her to a grisly end. Despite the warnings that she should go straight to her Grandmother’s, Little Red Riding Hood becomes distracted by feminine pursuits, portrayed through the compound sentence “…gathering nuts, running after butterflies, and gathering bouquets of little flowers.” This emphasises her age and vulnerability as she isn’t aware of her surroundings and the danger they can impose.

It upset her greatly that George Wilson (Myrtle husband) was not able to purchase his own suit. That one situation destroyed their marriage forever. Myrtle was not necessarily a beautiful woman. However, she was attractive in the sense that “There was an immediately perceptible vitality about her as if the nerves of her body were continually smouldering” (Fitzgerald, 25). This was what men saw in Myrtle that made her an object of longing.
The superficial nature of Daisy is that she’s pretending she’s in a happy marriage with Tom, when she’s not. She’s not in a happy marriage because her husband is cheating on her. Daisy comes off as being charming and happy but she’s really lonely. She laugh and says, “I’m p-paralyzed with happiness.”(pg. 13) Daisy is contentious about the way people look at her so she tries to be more charming.
Margaret Macomber’s love for her husband is debatable at best. She seems much more interested in flirting with their guide, Robert Wilson, than in encouraging her husband. In fact, she is brazen and unabashed about her sexual dalliance with Wilson and taunts her husband with it. Hemingway writes that she is “an extremely handsome and well-kept woman.” The phrase “well-kept” is particularly revealing in its multiple meanings. On one hand, Margot is fashionable and presents herself well.
Analysis: Juliet loves Romeo. She is sad that Romeo has to be a Montague, the rival of her family, the Capulets. Juliet is very daring and caring.
