He gasps in awe of her and startles Arcite, who then spots Emelye as well. Arcite then tells Palamon that he has fallen in love with Emelye and the two enter a bitter feud, claiming each loved her before the other. This reaction is very much standard in the courtly love system. It is considered sweet and gentlemanly for a man to swoon so over a woman and
The Duke in "My Last Duchess" is an arrogant, disrespectful man, who cares more about status and wealth than love. He is very selfish, who is jealous about his ex-wife for not giving him attention in the way he wanted. He wanted her to treat above everyone else. The speaker in "To His Coy Mistress" gives us the impression that he is a respectful man. He is also well-spoken and this is important because it is his main strength which he uses to attract her towards him.
Throughout the poem Marvell’s man uses many different techniques to encourage the woman. Initially he uses extreme praise to win her over, then straight flattery, moving on to almost threatening her, and finally he begins to boast about himself to her. Robert Browing’s poem My Last Duchess is about the relationship between a Duke and his Duchess. In this poem, the Duke is speaking to his envoy, and I think that within the poem he describes how he killed her, what her personality was like and how he is arranging for his envoy to find him another Duchess. Already, there is a clear pattern shown in these poems in the relationships between men and women; the man has little respect for the female.
My Last Duchess - YELLOW Macbeth - GREEN ‘My Last Duchess’ by Robert Browning is a poem which deals with the imaginary character of the Duke of Ferrara. In essence, the poem is a psychological portrayal of the Duke presented to the reader as if he or she is simply listening in on a conversation. As the poem unfolds, the reader becomes aware that the Duke is talking to an envoy from his fiancée’s family in order to make final arrangements for his new marriage. Thus, the nature of the discussion seems rather strange as the Duke is standing in front of a portrait of his former wife, recounting memories of his last marriage. The fact that the reader is able to get a strong sense of what the Duke is like, is testament to Browning’s skilful use of the dramatic monologue form, coupled with effective word choice and imagery.
2) How does Romeo describe the woman he loves in Scene 1? Refer to things like word choice. Connotation, tone figures of speech, and so on. Romeo describes the woman he loves by saying: ‘’She hath Dian’s wit.”- Here Romeo is comparing her to the Roman goddess Diana because she is chaste and does not want to marry. “O she is rich in beauty, only poor that when she dies, with beauty dies her store.” – Romeo is saying that she is beautiful, but it is a shame that she will not pass her beauty down to anyone because she does not want to have children.
There is both anger and sadness in Sheila’s words at this point. Her bitterness towards him continues when she says: “Of course not. You were the wonderful Fairy Prince. You must have adored it, Gerald.” Here, I felt as if Sheila was openly mocking Gerald. Her hurt has turned to anger and the expression “wonderful Fairy Prince” shows that she recognises how Gerald must have enjoyed basking in Eva Smith’s gratitude and affection.
Since male honour was very important at the time he disregarded the social conventions and decided to go against his comrade. Claudio on the other hand is very driven by his pride and honour, decides to shame Hero to avoid being called a ‘Cuckold’. Beatrice is witty, flamboyant and sharp-tongued as opposed to Hero who is the typical daughter, not acting until her father allows it; this is very common in Shakespearean times and again shows the contrast between their relationships. Claudio falls in love at first sight with Hero based on her appearance without first looking
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.

She shows delight as she sees herself in the mirror without the birthmark on her cheek any longer. Georgiana feels badly for Aylmer, she sees that he is happy that he has made her perfect, but he has aimed to high for perfection, willing to lose the love of his life as he strives to create perfection.

Georgiana knew what would be the most likely outcome of her husband’s experiment on her, yet was willing to submit to it to make him happy.
