In both poems gender conflict is demonstrated between through the emotion of betrayal in a relationship. For example in Les Grands Seignurs she talks about “little woman” which could show the great depth of thought about how she feels towards men. The word “a toy, a plaything” suggests that’s once she got married she has became powerless and feels like she is a toy, this shows her betrayal as when you get married you expect the marriage to be fantastic and not to feel like a toy. In contrast, Medusa also demonstrates this when she says “wasn’t I beautiful?” this Is effective as I can infer that she feels insecure about her looks. It also suggests that she misses her past through the use of a rhetorical question which makes the reader feel sympathy for her.
• ‘You aint ruined’ – sense that she is envious that the other farm girl can be no naive (could remind herself of her). Now she is seen as a second class citizen and cannot marry or have a family because she is married • ‘You blue and bleak face could’ - unhealthy because she is unhappy because she has no life or status DIDNT TAKE WHAT THEY WERE DOING SERIOUSLY • Although the reader is like to feel sorry for the poet, ‘we played’ tells us that she saw her loves as a game. Could suggest that she liked all the attention. • She saw them as toys too, ‘my hurdy gurdy monkey men’ • Now she realises what she has done wrong and is has set in she still shows now sign of sorrow, ‘o you didn’t know I’d been ruined’ the breezy tone is heavily ironic. • ‘You aint ruined’ – suggesting she was like her and wanted all these clothes and privileges
Stella is willing to look past everything Stanley does because she loves him and that makes her the fool of the play.

“Romeo and Juliet” is considered by many one of the greatest love stories to have ever been written. However, the tale is not one of love but a story of a young girl whose whims led her to be manipulated by a boy who was seeking out sex. The scene where Romeo and Juliet first meet demonstrates how fickle their infatuation is. The story begins with Romeo wailing over his lost love Rosaline, saying “And, in strong proof of chastity well-armed, from love’s weak childish bow, she lives uncharmed.” He continues his outburst by saying how useless Rosaline is if she is not willing to sleep with him. Benvoilo feels sympathy for the young brokenhearted man and encourages him to go to the Capulet’s party so he will forget the girl.
To be brief, Ophelia’s syndrome comes from 3 super egos that she has which her Masculine voice, men telling her what to do, her libido which is her sexual desire for Hamlet and wanted to be loved and cared for. also her power struggle, having the chance of speaking her mind for once and standing up for herself and against Hamlet.

Pg. 108 "She was appalled by West Egg...by its raw vigor that chafed...and by the too obtrusive fate that herded its inhabitants along a short-cut from nothing to nothing. She saw something awful in the very simplicity she failed to understand." c. Daisy’s best qualities is that she allows herself to play right back at Tom in his little game. She knows that he is going to be flirting with girls all night, so she allows it while she sneaks away to do a little flirting of her own with Mr. Gatsby.
Maggie's condition throughout the novel is forced upon her by things outside of her control. She has a crush on a boy, like many girls do at her age, but is too naive to the world to understand his intentions. Her family is mad because they believe she is sleeping around. While she is truly just an innocent young girl with a crush. These misunderstandings escalate to the point that Maggie is kicked out of her home.
At point, during the chapter she gets very jealous of Gatsby which shows that she has some feelings towards him. Since, she seems very scared about him finding someone else who is younger and much prettier than her and will take over his heart and he will give her everything he can. And she won’t be the one that is really wanted by him, and he will stop trying to impress her. She doesn’t want to have the attention taken off her, since she seems to really enjoy it. Gatsby really exaggerated Daisy’s appearance and characteristics, seems like a fantasy but she does seem to get him ‘glowing’ and really happy so, to some extent she lives up to his
This represents her unawareness of the concept of faithfulness because if a few words are all it takes for one to persuade another into cheating, then one must not understand the whole point of marriage in the first place. To continue, Alison plots with Nicholas to have an affair “as soon an opportunity she could spy” (Chaucer 2). Unlike the promise of faithfulness the old lady in “The Wife of Bath’s Tale” makes, Alison willingly cheats. She shows her immaturity in not thinking of the repercussions of her actions and how they might affect those around her. In addition, Alison displays childish behavior in the adolescent actions she does towards Absalom by sticking her bottom out the window and him not realizing it was not her face, therefore kissing it.
The faulty love in “Lessons of Love” In the short story “Lessons of Love” by Judith Ortiz Cofer, the young girl is an excellent example of unreliable love, people who abuse love, take advantage of love, and people who feel so intimated about their love they are willing to do anything for them, but they don’t know if they are going to get the same thing back from them. Obsession, love, and misery cannot lead you to the person that you want unless they feel the same way for you. The young girl is obsessed with the boy she has a crush on and the guy she meets changes her in a variety of ways and the girl has become so obsessed and desperate for her for the guy that she becomes untrue to her family members. First, the girl transforms in a way desiring to see the boy she has crush on every single day, she does that by basically admiring and always taking glances at him. The boy the young girl has a crush on works at a local grocery store right across the street, the young girl persuades and forces her family to eat more so, she can shop at the that store more frequently, so she can catch a glimpse of his beauty: “Week after week I wandered up and down the aisles, taking furtive glances at the stock room in the back, breathlessly hoping to see my prince.
