Jody ain’t never in his life picked out no color for me”(112). Tea Cake’s love made Janie’s life complete. Although it was a tragic event that he ended up dying, he had already provided Janie with the love that she desired throughout her life, and for that, Janie was thankful and satisfied. In the end, when Janie was returned to Eatonville, even though she was without Tea Cake, she stood as a strong woman who knew she had experienced a great love. Janie no longer was searching for what she wanted out of life, she had already found it: “Here was peace.
Since Martha never mentions the war in her letters, it becomes easy for him to imagine her as a symbol of love outside of the war. Although Martha does not return his affection, he continues to love her because he can not stop loving all that she represents to him. Martha returns in the next chapter, as Cross explains his interactions with Martha after the war. As he tries to hold her hand and proclaim his love for her, she is tragically indifferent, and it
The difference is Tom believes he is in love with Daisy but just likes the idea of having some to always go back to. Tom makes this evident for everyone during a feud over Daisy with Gatsby. Tom says, “I love Daisy too. Once in a while I off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always comeback, and in my heart I love her all times.” Even though it is incontrovertible that Tom loves Daisy, he has a much different meaning of love. He believes love to be something that is parallel with infidelity as long as he goes back to Daisy at the end of the day.
Matt now has a son, a good wife, and an ordinary life; he still has a good family life without going to university. In contrast with Kate, although she has good education and job, she doesn’t have her own family and in fact, she says, “I had never thought I would really love anyone.” (89) From another perspective, she seems to be the one that is going to have a sad life. Similar with Luke, when he rejects Sally it is due to his responsibility as a caregiver. He is happy with his decision since it is for his family. If Matt chooses to go to university instead and leaves Marie, he will most likely lose his happiness and truly be an emotionless “nerd” and suffers like Kate who does not truly knows the meaning of love.
“…Janie looked down on him and felt a self-crushing love. So her soul crawled out of her hiding place” (128). Hurston uses this metaphor to emphasize the fact that Janie could never really be herself and that now she finally found someone who would let her be who she wanted to be. As a reader I feel like Janie is finally content with herself and is happy enough to where she can be herself around someone. Teacake made her realize what love was all about and it opened her eyes to what love could have been like in her prior marriages with Logan and Joe.
Gatsby dreams that he will “fix everything to the way it was before” (Gatsby 110). Instead, nothing changes, not even Gatsby’s love for Daisy. Daisy eventually stays with Tom and Gatsby’s “presumptuous little flirtation is over” (Gatsby 115). At that point Gatsby realizes that there is no hope for a future with Daisy, yet he cannot help the love yearns for her. This shows the immense power that women held over him and the extremes he was willing to go to obtain
If it be so (as so’tis put on me, / And that in way of caution), I must tell you/ You do not understand yourself so clearly/ As it behooves my daughter and your honor.”(I, iii, 99-106) Even Ophelia’s brother and father warn her about Hamlet, and how he may be using her but she does not listen because she is in love with Hamlet and does not believe he would use her. “Perhaps he loves you now, / And now no soil nor cautel doth besmirch/ The virtue of his will; but you must fear, / His greatness weighed, his will is not his own,” (I, iii, 17-20). After finding out that Hamlet murder her father and left for England, Ophelia is shock and goes mad because she thinks Hamlet
Paul thinks that if he can convince his mother that he is lucky he will gain her love. The main difference between these two characters is that Emily was a powerful woman that had been given a happy childhood, her father loves her and she does not want for anything, while Paul is at his mother’s mercy and is a powerless young boy desperate for his mother’s love. Unlike Paul, Emily does not feel unhappy or unloved; she is calculating and uses her power to obtain poison
