Again, should be grateful: ‘when you speak against the ruler here, consider yourself very fortunate that exile is your only punishment.’ (iii) Sexist: "You women are all the same" (62). He goes on to say, "What we poor males really need is a way of having babies on our own – no females, please. Then the world would be completely trouble free" (iv) Cruel, spineless Jason abandons Medea on a whim; breaks oath Jason's arguments with Medea introduce his total lack of backbone as a character; he is the consummate whiner, making excuses for himself and patronizing Medea with the absurd claim that their divorce was for her benefit. Jason's offers of help underscore his half-hearted approach to human relationships--he is always offering people the bare minimum, whatever he can manage without sacrificing his
At the beginning of the story, the protagonist (princess) thought that having true happiness meant finding a man/prince to sweep her off of her feet/ to instantly fall in love , and take her away from her castle/home.

She is completely unable to control her feelings for her only love, “I must love a loathed enemy” [I, v, 139]. The way that Shakespeare uses “must” is very interesting because although the households are enemies she must go against her parents will because she loves Romeo. No longer did her parents support her instead she was rejected. When Juliet rebels against marring Paris, “He shall not make me a joyful bride” [III,v,117]. Lord Capulet becomes enraged of this defiant behaviour, “An you be mine, I’ll give you to my friend / an you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the streets, / For, by my soul, I’ll ne’er acknowledge thee” [III, v, 192-4].
In the book, Katniss shows a slight chance mentally, in her thoughts. She knows that Snow’s goal is to make her life as miserable as possible. One way she counters this is by coming up with backup plans and thoughts, in order to deceive Snow. For example: Katniss and Peeta publicly show that they are going to get married. This is supposed to keep an uprising from happening in the districts.
1). Shelby regrets taking Harry away from Eliza as much as he regrets betraying Uncle Tom’s trust. Eliza overhears the discussion between Mr. and Mrs. Shelby. Mrs. Shelby was protesting her husband’s decision to sell Tom and Harry, “I’ll be in no sense accomplice or help in this cruel business. I’ll go and see poor old Tom, God help him, in his distress….
are too full of the milk of human kindness/ To catch the nearest way.” [1.5.13] Her masculinity overshadows Macbeth’s when she asserts her power without contemplation and plans King Duncan’s murder. When Macbeth’s moral compass drives him to contemplate murdering Duncan, Lady Macbeth questions his manhood: “Wouldst thou have that/ Which thou esteemest the ornament of life/ And life a coward in thine own esteem, Letting ‘I dare not’ wait upon ‘I would’/ Like the poor cat in the adage?’” [1.7.44] Her strength of will and ambition counteract yet
Settings: Funny face mainly takes place in a place called Garden City, I think that Garden City is what they call a special place in their backyard, since it is called ‘Garden’ City, it a place where they come to have fun. It is what would be considered the perfect place to be, since everyone seem very happy, for instance “She said I was beautiful and my mother, laughing, agreed” they really seem to be having a great time in Garden City. The poem switches between several places, but the main story takes place in Garden City. They go from being in Garden city to a stage where the girl has to perform and put on her funny face. Narration: The poem is written with a first person narrator.
When she marries John Wright, he isolates her on their farm, refusing even to obtain a telephone and kills the one possession that is precious to her - her little singing bird. 2. The men in both plays tend to devalue the intelligence of the women. Ophelia * In Hamlet, their view of women is perhaps slightly more warranted because Ophelia's inability to stand up for herself or voice her thoughts causes the audience to view her as unobservant and unthinking. Mrs. Wright/Other Women in the play * In Trifles, the county attorney and the other men see no harm in leaving the women downstairs to roam around the crime scene because they do not believe the women are intelligent enough to hinder or help their case.
Biblically, we all are sinners. We all “fall short of God’s glorious standard.” (Romans 3:23) But, the way Hawthorne uses the Puritan society seems to contradict that statement. The way the society acts strict and unforgiving towards the main character, Hester Prynne, who is the novel’s protagonist and the wearer of the scarlet letter “A”, which signifies that she is an “adulterer”, expresses the hypocrisy of the Puritans. This is clearly shown through the exclusion, the badge of infamy, and the resent of Hester’s only treasure-Pearl. ** Clearly, Hester’s sin was out in the open for everyone to see.
By taking Antoinette away from her homeland and calling her Bertha, the narrator degraded her and took away the biggest part of herself. Antoinette's husband took her away life away from her. He removed her from her islander family, the people that she depended on and needed. Antoinette had no say in it. It is not hard to see how this horrible experience can make a young person go
