Medusa is described in a very negative manner. On the other hand, the final stanza makes us feel pity for her. Her lover had other ‘girls’ meaning he was unfaithful and the rhetorical question that follows makes Medusa seem desperate. This part of the poem evokes feelings from the reader as she is clearly distressed and suffering. She reminisces about when she was ‘fragrant and young’, illustrating her complete lack of confidence.
Repulsion and desire theme is portrayed by the way Eddie repeats his father’s sins in juggling relations with Countess and May; same way the Old Man abandoned both May’s and Eddie mother by leaving them tortured and distraught by their obsessive love for him. May has feelings that same pain and anguish may rule her entire life because she is unable to totally live without Eddie, and this saddens the pair, leaving them to face their doubtful future being apart. As the play indicates however, the incest pair’s future promises additional emotional reunions as well as necessary, but painful moments of abandonment as evidenced where May hate Eddie after leaving her and equally loves him back after returning. In stage performance, lighting and sound are employed to convey distraught feelings, and violent emotions experienced by May and Eddie. As the play commences lights fade to shades of darkness, and the ‘Wake Up’ song by Merle Haggard is heard with its sound increasing gradually as lights rises; to convey the growing range between Eddie and May.
Therefore, I believe Manon hates her husband. This gives the impression to the reader that Manon is always negative and is harsh towards her husband, making people believe she is not loving towards him. However, the narrator’s restricted viewpoint could lead us to believe that she is biased and unreliable because she is narrating only from her point of view. Also, at the beginning of the games, Manon has a sympathetic tone towards the slaves and feels sorry for them because she says, “I couldn’t watch anymore.” This suggests that Manon feels ashamed of what she is letting her husband do to the slaves and that she feels sadness building up inside of her towards the slaves being treated horrifically. The dynamic verb of “watch” shows to the reader that Manon feels a little bit of pain towards the slaves and that she feels that they are only being used for torture.
He purposely uses powerful adjectives in his phrases, such as “burnt her inside out” and “she was in great agony”; the word “agony” is emotive because it suggests an extremely unbearable pain. Sheila responds “miserably” which illustrates that she has been saddened by the news the Inspector had announced. However, this has an impact on Sheila but Mr and Mrs Birling, who are set in their ignorant time frame of mind, fail to see this. Their callous attitude prevents them from accepting any blame or responsibility for their own actions, and they fail to recognise that all actions have consequences. Their social class is also revealed when they are talking about Eva Smith.
Her emotional attachment is virtually nil and sees men as mere things to be used and abused for her own personal gain. She appears to have a deep-lying hatred of men, shown by her ongoing disrespect throughout the poem "Whose?" being the perfect quotation to show she does not care who this man is or what he is, he brought her what she wanted/needed and she killed him when she was done with him. Salome has a unanimously negative view of men shown throughout the poem like when she calls the man a "blighter the beater or biter" showing she has no positivity attached to him, you would not call a friend or family member a "blighter", "beater" makes you think she believes all man hurt things, abuse each other, hit women and destroy happiness, "biter" shows something completely different however, "biter" makes you think that Carol Ann Duffy has tried to show Salome as a predatory fisherwoman and the man as a lowly fish being lured in by a beautiful piece of bait to their bloody end. The character Salome is based on the biblical Salome, in her biblical form Salome is he daughter of Herodias who is married to her uncle (King Herod), John the Baptist stood out against the marriage and Herodias had him arrested and wanted him executed, Herod respected John and wanted him to live, so he was merely imprisoned.
This miserable situation is making him feel disconnected from the world, and he cannot handle all the strong feelings he has: “O teach me how I should forget to think.” Act 1 Scene 1 Line 225. In this case, Romeo is feeling lustful towards Rosaline, which later on is contrasted with the pure love he feels for Juliet. He shows his stubbornness whilst failing to listen to Benvolio who says that Romeo should see other girls as there are many more beautiful. However Romeo simply replies: “Examine other beauties…thou canst no teach me to forget.” Act 1 Scene 1 Lines 227-236. He is denying the idea completely, thinking that it would just make him realise how beautiful Rosaline really is.
The author write "With all the intensity of the savage blood transmitted to her through long lines of wholly barbaric ancestors, she hated the woman who blushed and trembled behind that silent door." (Stockton 49). The author clearly states that the princess hates the woman behind the door. Evidence also proves that the princess is jealous of this woman for the author tells you how she caught the woman looking at her lover plenty of times, as if flirting with him, but when the man flirts back is when she starts to get jealous. She admits on page 49 that the lady is very lovely and beautiful, by the author stating that it draws people to the conclusion that the princess knows her lover wouldn't mind marrying the woman and that he would actually be happy with it.
This line reflected Mrs. Pontellier’s mood at the time. She is upset because her husband insinuates that she is bad or unfit mother. “He reproached his wife with her inattention, her habitual neglect of the children” (26-27). Him saying that really upset her and leads us into the next literary device that shows just how unhealthy the relationship is. Another literary device that Chopin uses in order to reveal Mr. and Mrs. Pontellier’s relationship is imagery.
His language is full of anger and hatred and the audience would quickly catch on to Iago’s bitter character. The tone is unpleasant and Shakespeare portrays this with his choice of lexis, such as “Tush”, an abrubt, onomatopoeically harsh word, and “curses despise me if I don’t”, things that would lead the audience to question the morals of the character. The subject of discourse in the first lines of the play are all about hate, “Thou didst hold him in thy hate.” And the audience start to understand what Iago is made of. Lexis such as “Moorship” show how low Iago stoops, as he picks on anything he can in his criticism, including Othello’s race. From line 7 through to line 8, Iago has a long rant about Othello, as he felt he had been done an injustice when he was not chosen as lieutenant.
