Toby is confronted with a series of ‘tyrant’ men who use unrelenting violence and blatant manipulation in order to control their wives and children. Whilst demonstrating some degree of unease about these men’s actions and their ‘occasional brutality’ towards his mother, Toby’s vulnerability in this crucial developmental stage in his life, forces him to consider this to be the definition of a man. Considering and applying this dominant definition of masculinity proves to be an error of judgement made by Toby. At some stage Roy is what Toby thinks ‘a man should be’ and is the instigator of his feelings that he needs a weapon ‘for the way it completes him’. Roy, like Dwight, influences Toby’s relationship with his mother and forces Toby to withhold the truth from her.
Mr Birling is shown to be an arrogant and confident character. With his first line in the extract given he shows a very careless and selfish attitude with the statement 'I discharged her'. Birling gives a cold attitude towards Eva Smith's life and shows that he doesn't care for her, giving himself a more noticeable selfish attitude. Birling decides to not use her name and constantly regards her as 'girl' and the fact he has to think about her time at his business shows that she wasn't important enough to him, and shows that he thinks workers and people below him don't deserve to be called by their names. Birling tries to intimidate Inspector Goole by boasting about his status and the type of people he knows, for example when Birling mentions the engagement between Sheila and Gerald Croft - a name made famous by 'Croft's limited', Birling brings this up to intimate the Inspector as Birling expects his status to buy him away from trouble and put him above the law.
He does not like the way Tom treats Daisy and believes he should be the one that is with her, especially because of Tom’s actions toward Daisy such as talking on the phone with his mistress Myrtle, Wilson’s wife, in front of her (Fitzgerald 15). Tom says what he says in retaliation to the embarrassment caused by Gatsby’s accusation, and because he does not like Gatsby, since he is trying to take his wife, although Tom knows that Daisy will not leave him because of the control and fear he has enacted and put upon her. Neither Tom nor Gatsby care about the feelings

The men on the ranch fear Curly's wife. She is a temptress of sorts and she is a possession of Curly’s (hence her name). She projects undertones of sexuality in almost everything she says. The men are lonely which only highlights her danger. They do not want the bosses son, Curly, to get angry.

Her father doesn’t help the situation because he shields her from the outside world and “chases away potential suitors because none of them are good enough for his daughter” (p.6”A Rose for Emily”). Her father is very controlling of her and this contributes to her being a little off down the road. When she does find a man that she does like in Homer Barron she goes crazy over him despite him being gay. This causes him to kill him when is he is to say that he is not a marrying man. Sarty is
Tybalt completely forgets about Mercutio and says to him “Well, peace be with you, sir. Here comes my man.” This quote suggests that Tybalt was looking for Romeo and he saw his enemy. While Romeo and Tybalt are still arguing about their hatreds towards each other, Romeo gets insulted by Tybalt by calling him a “villain”. This was insult towards Romeo because in the reign of the Elizabethan time that word was very insulting especially for someone like Romeo as he comes from a noble family. Mercutio joins in the conversation and says “O calm, dishonorable, vile submission!
He cares about her wife, Eurydice, as well because Creon wanted to suicide when he saw his son and wife died in scene 8. In the play Antigone, Creon is not a loving ruler because he is stubborn and doesn’t listen to advice and Creon doesn’t listen or believe the prophet. He only wants what he thinks is the best. He doesn’t even bother asking the people of Thebes for advice. He is a one man state and will only does what benefits the people of Thebes.
Capulet insults Juliet by calling her a “tallow-face!” and “disobedient wretch!” Name calling is a very childish thing to do and here we see Capulet just throwing a tantrum because he is not getting his way. This shows that Capulet is not used to Juliet or anyone disobeying him, he is used to being in the spotlight where people treat him as royalty. However as soon as someone does not do what he says he goes mad and you can see this because he starts cursing his only child and he doesn’t care about how she might feel. This is very immature because he just carries on shouting at her and doesn’t even stop to actually question her motives because all he wants is for Juliet to change her mind. He is also cruel in his choice of insults as he calls her a “green-sickness carrion!” and he is trying to tell her that she’s no different than a pile of skeletons if she doesn’t marry
