Hindley first feels alienation as a young boy, when his father, Mr. Earnshaw returns from Liverpool with a dark haired boy, a “gipsy brat.” Hindley dislikes Heathcliff, the orphan immediately, but his hatred for him grows as he quickly becomes Mr. Earnshaw’s favourite. “The young master [Hindley] had learnt to regard… Heathcliff as a usurper of his father’s affections and privileges.” Hindley hates Heathcliff because his father loves an orphan more than he loves his own son. As a result of this, Hindley felt alienated from his father. Later, Hindley feels more alienation after his wife, Frances dies after childbirth. His wife was the only friend Hindley had in the world, and with her gone, he has no one.
During the 20th century, society believed there to be a defined difference in character among men and women. Women were viewed simply as passive wives and mothers, while men were viewed as individuals with many different roles and opportunities. For women, education was not expected past a certain point, and those who pushed the limits were looked down on for their ambition. Marriage was an absolute necessity, and a career that surpassed any duties as housewifes was practically unheard of. Clelia Mosher, a female author of the time, lived and wrote within this particular period.
He allows himself to be distracted by his unbearable thoughts of Martha and he faces the idea that he loves the thought of Martha more than his men. Cross makes a personal sacrifice by burning the letters and pictures from Martha, so she can no longer distract him from protecting and leading his men. As a savior Cross takes on the guilt of losing two important men so that the others do not have to bear it. Lieutenant Cross is fully wracked with the guilt of occupying himself with his love for Martha. The guilt eats away at Cross and makes him want to be a better leader for his men like he should have been all along.
“The Boarding House”: An Bitter Perspective In “The Boarding House” by James Joyce, Mrs. Mooney is appropriately called “The Madam”. Mrs. Mooney’s unscrupulous outlook on life forces her to become selfish in her actions. As a result, Mrs. Mooney is viewed as an intimidating and rigid entrepreneur. Mrs. Mooney’s cynical perspective compromises her relationships with others. Mrs. Mooney was previously involved in a dysfunctional marriage to a “shabby stooped little drunkard” (61).
He starts off with a test of loyalty for Kent and Cordelia in the form of banishment by Lear. He begins to show how loyalty can have bad effects in this scene when the two characters are actually reprimanded for displaying what many would view as loyalty and love to Lear. Cordelia refuses to show her love for Lear in the way that he sisters did before her with kind words and masterfully crafted compliments and even states, “Then poor Cordelia! / and yet not so, since I am sure my Eldredge 2 love’s/ more ponderous than my tongue” (I.i.77-79). Cordelia believes that she is being loyal to Lear by not lying to him and just telling him things that he wants to hear like her sisters are doing but this backfires, as Lear is not happy with this.
In her novel, Bronte explores many issues of Victorian society such as women’s stature both generally and amongst poor in the 19th century. She also explores patriarchal male domination, and the segregation and unspoken restrictions between the different classes. Society in Britain in the 19th century was very different to today’s Women had a very different role back then as education was limited.There were certain ‘requirements’ of being a ‘lady’ such as playing the piano, sewing, drawing and speaking French. Also at this time there was alot of poverty in Great Britain and although Bronte doesn’t go into it she does keep a constant fear over Jane’s mind of slipping in to it, which could easily have had been done with out her determination, “if she were to turn you off you would have to go to the poorhouse”. Victorian women, were treated as second-class citizens.
Peter shows how he hates work, so the key to his happiness is just not going. Although he Peter was all for his own happiness, Milton began to think in a similar further into the film. This caused the two characters to butt heads. Milton told Peter he would not turn down his radio volume, basically just because it made him happy. A line from Self Reliance by Emerson tells that “their rage is decorous and prudent, for they are timid, as being vulnerable themselves.” Milton’s lack of timidity helped him gain his personal happiness therefore exemplifying transcendentalism.
During the 1800’s literature was increasing in popularity in Victorian England. There was however still many reservations upheld with women writers, presumably on account of societies opinion of the role of women during this time period. In 1847, a revolutionary woman and talented realist writer: Charlotte Bronte, penned the Victorian classic, Jane Eye. It centered on a poor, plain female Bildungsroman, named Jane, growing up in the patriarchy of the nineteenth century English Society. Jane goes against many traditional female archetypes by developing great psychological, intellectual and moral behaviour that is not typical of a woman growing up during these times.
He is honest of what he is saying. And also he is reflective because he has use himself as an example to show how much he dislike it, which is a great example to explain why he doesn’t like it. “In a job like that you see the dirty work of empire at close quarters.” * The reason why I choose “C. lugubrious and regretful” is because I’m totally guessing at that time. Well, he is kind of sad about his life by doing the thing he doesn’t like, which is kind of lugubrious.
During this meeting, they discussed Holden’s academic failure and his unwillingness to conform to society and apply himself to his studies. Antolini has a paternal attitude towards Holden. He seems genuinely concerned about the boy and tries to help him realise that his irresponsible behaviour is spiralling out of control. He tells him he is headed for a fall and “the man falling isn’t permitted to feel or hear himself hit the bottom.”(Chapter 24, The Catcher in the Rye) He offers advice: “The mark of an immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of a mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.” (Chapter 24, The Catcher in the Rye) The visit is relaxed and friendly. He doesn’t question Holden too much.
