I know this because Lysandra still hates Elaine and now directs her famous, hateful poetry at her years later. Elaine proves this by saying, “The words claw out from the page like so many birds of prey. And all of them seem to be moving in my direction.” (73). Lysandra’s conflict with herself (inability to forgive and move forward) is a negative way in dealing with conflicts or treating your friends. I know this because Lysandra is holding a grudge on something that happened a while back that could’ve been a great friend-ship, she’s also famous now so why does it matter?
Medusa is told in the first person as a dramatic monologue by a woman who is insecure and worried that her husband is cheating on her. The poem begins: ‘A suspicion, a doubt, a jealousy’ and it is this jealousy which has turned the woman into a gorgon and now everything she looks at turns to stone. This feeling of doubt resonates throughout the poem, exemplified in the line, ‘but I know you’ll go, betray me, stray from home’. Unlike our feelings towards the traditional monstrous character, this poem evokes empathy for the character as she is clearly distressed and suffering. Especially when she reminisces in the final stanza about the time she was young and beautiful, illustrating her complete lack of confidence.
But when Shakespeare wrote about love, it was about many different kinds of love, and there usually are no ‘happily ever after’ endings. “As an abstract concept, love is typically taken to represent a range of human emotions, from simple feelings of pleasure to overwhelming and ineffable attraction towards another person” (Ahmetoglu, Swami, and Chamorro-Premuzic). The main theme of the play is love and this statement is a good example of the different types of love in Othello. While the love between Othello and Desdemona takes center stage, there is many different love relationships in the play as well. In the play you can see familial, friendly, unrequited, true, and sexual love.
Electra fights with her mother, Clytemnestra, and her mother’s lover, Aegisthus, because she feels betrayed by them as they killed her father. When Electra and Orestes are finally reunited, they plot against their fathers killers, and finally kill them. The play has several themes, such as vengeance and deception which are extenuated by the heightened realism style of the play. In Electra’s introductory speech, I would emphasises her agony of her father’s death, as this is the main reason the character is vengeful. To fit with the heightened realism of the play, I would exaggerate the mental pain that the character is going through by associating some lines with physical pain, such as ‘But my mother, and her bed mate Aegisthus, Split open his head with a murderous axe’.
She calls him a bastard because he walked out on her however Duffy uses beloved sweetheart to symbolise her unconditional love for him. Havisham exhibits violent imagery with powerful words, strangle, stabbed and death which all associate her bitterness with her wanting her ex fiancé dead. `Not a day since then I haven’t wished him dead`, proves that Havisham still remembers her wedding day very vividly and feels humiliated having been jilted so is trying to get revenge. Havisham is feeling emotionally detached from life and because of that, envisaging her ex fiancé dead or hurt. The poem infuses images of death to show the extent of her bitterness, along with enjambment.
At first he wonders why his wife is crying and becomes angry with him, but once she explodes at him, confessing all her feelings, and threatens to leave him, he states that, “There, you have said it all and you feel better. / You won’t go now. You’re crying. Close the door. / The heart’s gone out of it: why keep it up.” (Frost 751).
Julian Reed Prof. Paul Spitale English 112 In the story “The Yellow Wallpaper” Gilman describes a woman that seems to be completely insane. She somehow does not fit society’s ideal of a woman. The narrator's relationship with her husband is very strained, and ultimately determined by the narrator's husband. Her husband always treated her like a little child. He did not allow her to express herself, and kept her locked away to a restricted room.
Both Grendel and Emily were lonely, Grendel was angry at the humans because of the way they were reacting towards him, he was jealous of their lifestyle, their parties and singing. Grendel had it in his mind that the reason he was created was to make people’s life miserable. In “A Rose for Emily” Faulkner portrayed Emily as an insane woman. In my opinion I think Emily decided to kill homer was because, homer was thinking about moving up north and leaving her just like Emily’s previous boyfriend she was afraid to be all alone and lonely again So she decided to buy “rat poison” and mixed it with a drink and gave it to homer. In “Grendel”, if the humans would have judged Grendel not just by his looks but by his character, the 12 year war between Grendel and the humans had a very slim if any chance to take place.

Even more scandalous is that she married her husband’s brother. It is only normal that anyone would experience chronic and emotional disturbance as a result of this situation. This experience causes Hamlet to go mad and he unleashes his madness on Ophelia, who he feels he may no longer trust. He believes all women are weak and deceitful like
