Due to Desdemona’s never ending, continuous love for Othello, she ultimately played a role in her own death. The love Desdemona feels for Othello is seen in the fact that she goes against her family and marries the man she loves, not the man that may necessarily be more suited for her. Brabantio, Desdemona’s father, believes that Othello lures Desdemona away with his witchcraft and that her life would be much better if they never married. However, Desdemona ignores her father’s instruction; despite the fact Brabantio believes their relationship is unnatural: “She [Desdemona] is abused, stol’n from me and corrupted by spells and medicines bought of mountebanks; for natures so preposterously to err, being not deficit, blind or lame of sense, sans witchcraft could not” (Othello, 1.3.60-64). At first, Brabantio believes that his daughter was tricked by Othello, that he stole her away with his magic spells and witchcraft.
Instead of understanding she loves him unconditionally, Grendel claims “even my mama loves me not for myself… but for my son-ness, my possessedness” (158). He believes he gives her power by being her son and this is her sole reason for loving him. On several occasions, Grendel’s mother stands between him and the cave door. Grendel assumes she is trying to keep him locked up, but in reality she is trying to protect him (147). He does not understand this example of maternal interaction is a representation of her motherly instincts and unconditional love for him.
Ismene wants Antigone to accept Creon's decree regarding their brother. In her opinion, women should not interfere with man's laws and that a subservient mind is best applied to men in general which she bases on the “fact” that men are stronger than women. Antigone, being the strong willed woman that Ismene isn’t, ignores her sister and continues on her objective. Even though Ismene is disregarded by Antigone, she still attempts to help her (she does not help in burying the body, but she insists on sharing the blame with Antigone. Ismene's conflict revolves around both her sister Antigone and Uncle Creon.
Although he is introduced as a loving father trying to care for his daughter, he does not want anyone bothering him and seems like an unfriendly person. With his powerful position in the village he is worried about what may be the cause of Betty’s illness, whilst many are assuming it is the cause of witchcraft, which he refuses to discuss. Abigail, Parris’ niece, enters the room and starts arguing with her uncle – however our first impression of this girl is that she may be truthful whilst Parris is unnecessarily angry at her, wanting her to confess all that happened in the woods. He says ‘I cannot go before the congregation when I know you have not opened with me’; he does not trust her and cannot lie to the village about the events that night. This makes us sympathise with him more.
I came here to take my son home and realized he already is home..I’m not going to take him with me”(NPAG Benton). Here Joanna reveals again that she only wants what is best for Billy even if that means she doesn’t get him. Nora reveals she also wants what is best for her children. When Torvald found out what Nora did to him (and his pride), he was furious and mentions he doesn’t trust Nora to
Travis should not have to sleep on the couch. Beneatha should be able to be a doctor, but she must be careful not to overspeak according to Mama. Beneatha's frustration with the "outdated" ideas of her mother and her brother's traditional marriage are felt. She is a dreamer and yet the reader wants to believe with her. Walter's anger is perfectly justified although it gets him nowhere, and Ruth's increasing frustration with her husband is also justified, especially as they are about to bring another child into the world.
The Friar tries to dissuade Giovanni from commencing the relationship despite there being little effect from his words. Annabella is harshly reprimanded by the Friar, so much so that she sees sense to confess to her sins. Despite her confession however, she is still punished grotesquely towards the end of the play. Giovanni does not confess; instead he sees his actions as necessary to deal with the problem that he is the main cause of. The final line “Who could not say, ‘Tis pity she’s a whore?” can be seen as directed towards her and so she is blamed for everything that has occurred.
Where the mother only wants the absolute best for her son, when the son just wants to 'be'. As a strict mother she discourages her sons constant "[...] looking out the window, dreaming" technique of learning. The mother tries to motivate her son by threating him with "[...] no baseball practice[...]" , which obviously the child loves. Wilson's character compared to Millar's character are very different but yet the same. Even knowing that Wilson's character is extremely pushy with her child she still gives the respect by wanting the son to be something in
How does Polonius react to the news of Hamlet’s strange behavior? · He thinks Hamlet is just mad because Ophelia dissed him. 3. What evidence of Hamlet’s affections for Ophelia exists? · He tells Ophelia he loves her and does not love her, thinks she should never have trusted him but wants her to go away to a nunnery for her own protection.
She did what she was told without question, even when it went against her own desires, shown when her father ordered her to stop seeing Hamlet, to which she responded with promises that she “shall obey, my lord,” (1.3.136). However, she was not nearly as innocent as she seemed, in my unofficial opinion. Innocence is defined as when one is without guilt, or it can also be thought of as when someone does not have any personal experience with the evil widespread throughout the world. Ophelia’s well of innocence starts to run dry when she confronts her brother, Laertes, on his impending trip to Paris. She says to him, “But, good my brother, Do not, as some ungracious pastors do, Show me the steep and thorny way to heaven, Whiles, like a puff’d and reckless libertine, Himself the primrose path of dalliance treads, And reaks not his own rede” (1.3.46-51).
