King Lear says to his daughters ‘if it be you that stirs these daughters’ hearts against their father’ which shows how he feels betrayed: a feeling he may have not felt if he had not been so foolish to dismiss Cordelia for her honesty. Cordelia, however, plays a smaller role in the first few Acts of the play as she is disowned by her father and is not visited. Gonerill and Regan are both cruel father and do not have the same loyalty we get the impression as Cordelia does. Cordelia says at the beginning of the play ‘what shall Cordelia speak, love and be silent’ which shows that she loves her father however doesn’t feel she should lie about how much she loves her father. This truthfulness however lands her in a bad place as she is disowned by her father for not professing her love.
This is conflict because already Jules makes Baby feel like she is not loved and that she is unwanted and to her the fact that while he is at this rehabilitation center, trying to get better, he might forget about her and make her feel more unwanted, than she already is. Jules already neglects Baby on a day to day basis, but now that he is starting over from zero, or trying to, he may feel like Baby is his past and he does not need to intertwine her with his new life. O’Neill uses metaphors in this novel as well. This can be seen through the following quote “Every good pimp is a mother” (168). This relates back to the unwanted child because since Baby’s father is not a very good father
Suggesting that not only his father but other adults were unkind to him as a child as well, so he does not know how to handle the presence of children. When the grandmother begins to plead with him not to kill her she states that "she knows he is a good man and does not come from common blood" (O'Connor 192) he suggest sarcasm when he states " yes ma'am." "no finer people in the world." "daddy's heart was pure gold"( O'Connor 192). He is also contradictory because when asked by the Grandmother if the murder was a mistake, the Misfit knew it wasn't a mistake because "they had the papers on me" ( O'Connor 195).

He was known however to add twists to the endings of his short stories and poems to produce a chill of ironic horror in the reader, which is notable in "The Son's Veto" as Randolph rides atop his mother's hearse on the way to her final resting place as the route leads past a mourning yet snubbed and rejected--by Randolph, not by Sophy--Sam, the grocer. Having said this, it is possible to identify ridicule of class prejudice in the character and role of Sophy's son, Randolph. He is raised to be like the Vicar, his father, and, like him, to disdain Sophy's country upbringing and lower class ways and dialect. Though Sophy was tutored by the Vicar to have more sophisticated city-like ways, the country girl still lay at the heart of Sophy's dialectic speech and understanding about life, at the heart of her world view, if you will. When Sophy tells Randolph that she intends to accept Sam, the grocer, as her husband, Randolph flies into a fit of horrified emotion because Sam isn't a gentleman as society defines it, which was by wealth and family background and not by manners anto define it today.
Shakespeare presents the relationship between Hamlet and his mother the fact that Gertrude has no control over her son, Hamlet also shows no respect for his mother and he seems very angry and disgusted with her in the way she has acted since his father’s death. Lastly, Hamlet’s mother seems not to understand the change in Hamlet’s attitude recently. Gertrude’s lack of control over Hamlet is expressed through the term of address, “Sweet Hamlet”, as the adjective ‘sweet’ shows care and affection towards her son like she is trying to remind Hamlet of the past relationship they once had in the past. This term of address also has connotations of childhood as it feels like this may have been what Gertrude called her son when he was younger and this is reminding Hamlet that he is still her child and she is still his mother. This is a way that Gertrude is trying to take back control by putting Hamlet in his place and trying to make him remember who he is talking to.
She is unknowingly used in the plot against Hamlet by her father and brother who are supposed to protect her but instead they use her and therefore open a way for Hamlets hate and disappointment to direct at her.To understand Hamlets treatment of Ophelia its essential to look at Hamlets hatred towards his mother.

Gurhov is by some means defended for his view of women by relating his “bitter experience” and the description of his wife. (insert page 205 #2) He did not seek his wife, she was “found for him, when he was very young”. The reader is prone to dislike her with only a meager description. In a way, he was forced to marry this woman who evidently gave him a free pass to check out what he was missing. It is also revealed that Gurhov finds it difficult to socialize with the men in society, but (insert page 205 #3).
Obviously, something wasn’t working if the Great Depression came to be. In this sense, men felt emasculated; their instinctual desire to be the breadwinner became an impossible dream. In The Grapes of Wrath, as in history, women rise up when their families’ well being is threatened. This is seen when Ma becomes the noticeable “head of the house”, and also when Rose of Sharon is the only person capable of helping the young boy’s father. My peers forget the importance of maternity, and instead view simple things such as breastfeeding as crude and inappropriate.
