When she receives the ring from Gerald, she is immediately 'excited', and Priestley shows this in her speech with the use of dashes as she asks 'Mummy - isn't it a beauty?'. She shows appreciation of the 'perfect' ring to Gerald which shows she really is 'pleased with life' but almost possessed by Gerald.Although the Mr and Mrs Birling have been portrayed as arrogant, Sheila is contrasted to show compassion towards the conditions of the workers immediately when she hears about her father's treatment of Eva Smith - when she says 'these girls aren't cheap labour - they're people'. This shows how at the start of the play she is the only character so far that is capable of change, after Mr Birling denies all responsibility of the death of Eva Smith. Sheila is devastated when she realises her part in Eva Smith's death, she feels full of guilt for
This is shown when Scrooge rudely turns away two gentlemen who seek a donation from him to provide a Christmas dinner for the Poor. His only "Christmas gift" is allowing his overworked, underpaid clerk Bob Cratchit Christmas Day off, which he does only because it is customary. Scrooge considers Christmas "A poor excuse for picking a man’s pocket every twenty-fifth of December!" as shown in the play script (page 10 line 21). When he is visited by the ghost of Jacob Marley, his work partner who had died seven years ago, Marley warns Scrooge to change his ways so that he does not undergo the same miserable afterlife as Marley, who is bound in chains as a punishment for being greedy and cold-hearted.
The film’s corresponding characters are C.D., Roxanne, Chris, and Dixie. In both versions they keep Cyrano’s giant nose, his beautiful poetry, and his caring nature for Roxane. Christian is very attractive, awkward with his words, and does not know how to express his feeling towards Roxane. Both versions feature Roxanne, a very beautiful and independent woman, but also quite a shallow woman who doesn’t know that what she has been looking for has been right in front of her the whole time. Not only are all these characters and their attributes the same in both the play and the film, but many of the scenes are quite similar too.

* “dying orchids on the floor beside her bed” pg 151 quote * Daisy was in a fog and she did not know what to do without Gatsby. * The beauty of the orchids had gone away now and they were “dying” because the happiness of her evening came and went so quickly like the life of the orchids. Body Paragraph 3: TRS: The white petals of a daisy signify purity which is similar to the pureness of sprit signified by the white outfits that Daisy wears. (need to clean up) TS: The name Daisy given to Gatsby’s true love is significant because outwardly she appeared to be worthy of his love but inwardly she was not
“Nothing like that” (689). The Tinker, being the salesman that he is, finds away to soften her when he spots the chrysanthemums. “What’s them plants ma’am?” (690) Elisa is overjoyed with this outside interest in her flowers. When the he notices the flowers it’s like he notices her now too. She is connected to the chrysanthemums.
She finds the courage to rise up above societies expectation that she stay in this marriage, and walks out: “S’posin’ Ah wuz to run off and leave yuh sometime” (30). When Janie runs off with Jody, she knows that society will not approve, but she does it anyways because she is after that feeling of lust and desire that she experienced under the pear tree. Jody makes Janie feel good, at least at first. He spoils her with the finest treats and he treats her like a true lady. Also, he was perceived as “socially acceptable” by most everyone; he was a prominent businessman and Governor.
Gloire Mboungou Mrs. Phillips English III May 6, 2015 Comparison and Contrast of Daisy, Jordan, and Myrtle In the Great Gatsby there were three personas of women presented. The golden girl, the independent, and the gold digger. Each of these traits was represented in a different character. Daisy Buchanan was the golden girl, Jordan Baker was the independent woman, and Myrtle Wilson was the gold digger. Daisy Buchanan was extremely charming and many men fell for her because of her voice “Daisy’s murmur was only to make people lean toward her” (Fitzgerald, 9).
Circe lured the men in with her singing and her beautiful work on her loom. “’Dear friends, no need for stealth: here’s a young weaver singing a pretty song to set the air atingle on these lawns and paven courts. Goddess she is, or lady. Shall we greet her?’” (673). When Circe took control of the men by feeding them and giving them wine but “adding her own vile pinch, to make them lose desire or thought of our dear fatherland,” (674).
And now we have a complex re-seeing of himself, missing her deeply, and wishing she were with him, and speaking to her remembered presence, a seeing presented with a novelistic firmness—he’s wandering restlessly, talking to her, revisiting places where they had been together. It’s a kind of reverse love poem, in contrast to the far more common pattern of a male speaker swearing his own undying love and accusing the lover of fickleness Imaginatively, and most pitifully, Hardy writes this mournful and moving poem from the point of view of Emma. It is written in the first person, with her as the imaginary narrator. It is almost as if, in putting these words in the mouth of Emma (who, in the poem, sees Hardy as oblivious of her presence) Hardy is trying to reassure himself that she forgives him and continues to love him. Hardy uses the words “sets him wandering, I too alertly, go.” This shows that she follows Hardy where ever he goes.
