Briony Tallis: A Guilt Ridden Mistake In Ian McEwan’s Booker Prize Finalist novel Atonement, many readers develop a hate towards Briony Tallis. As a child, she is very controlling, which is the main reason as to why she is unliked. She believes she understands everything she sees, but she does not, which leads to her falsely accusing Robbie Turner of rape. But as she grows older, she realizes that she did not understand everything that she saw. Although it is easy to hate Briony because she falsely accuses Robbie, due to her childish naivety and innocence, her belief is that she is protecting Cecilia.
It was hard for her to receive so much attention from her father, but have her mother abandon her emotionally. Hadaller wrote “The clear distinction in the novel between Helen’s child Maudie and Milton’s Peyton highlights the intense polarization in the family.”(Hadaller58) It was a twisted situation for the family, Milton choosing Peyton and Helen consuming herself with Maudie. In the end it only caused trouble for everyone. “The dependant Maudie and the fiercely independent Peyton are set up in the novel to dramatize the family’s fracture. Both parents seek to love and adore one child to the exclusion of the
Steinbeck then created the characters based on the people he met. In this novel John Steinbeck presents Curley out to be a slimy, nasty and a horrible bully due to his actions and the way he treats people. He has no respect for anyone but himself, especially women. He treats his wife llike dirt and often objectifies her as it is said in the novel he wear's a "glove fulla vaseline". He does this to keep his hand soft for his wife who he is using as a sexual object which is rather humulating for her.
Ibsen however takes a more moralistic approach to portraying Victorian society; by doing this he makes the characters more realistic.Both writers position the argument that marriage was being undermined as increasingly society seemed to show a lack of trust and respect within marriage. Wilde uses the character of Mrs Allonby as a vehicle to satirize this lack of respect. In conversation with the other ladies, Mrs Allonby openly admits to being bored by her husband "my husband s a sort of promissory note; I am tired of meeting him" and that as a result she thinks that it is
She knew this about herself and was highly criticized for it. This means that she failed to be objective in several instances.A few good poems to use to capture her struggle with relationships might be these: "Mirror","By Candlelight" ,"Mary's Song". "Daddy" by Sylvia Plath is by right considered a magnificent poem about daughter's relationship with a father. Also it can also be read as an allegory of female yielding and final revolt in a men's world who have been responsible for all the disasters and wars
When Abigail was talking to Proctor she says “She is telling lies to about me! She is a cold sniveling woman, and you bend to her!”(Page 15, act one) she is basically showing her jealousy towards his wife. This stirred up the witch trials because Abigail wanted to be with Proctor and she would do just about anything. The fact that John proctor realizes all of his flaws and confesses to all of his sins is another reason why he can be considered a tragic hero. When Proctor had to go to the court to get his wife out of being accused of upholding witchcraft he eventually confess to his sins he committed.
The Madness that is Abigail Williams: Her Intentions in The Crucible “How hard it is when pretense falls! But it falls, it falls!” With these chilling and ominous words, Abigail’s twisted sense of revenge rings hollow in Arthur Miller’s terrifying play, The Crucible. A masterpiece of its time, The Crucible brings forth the true horrors man is capable of: deception and vengefulness. No character presents these values as well as Abigail, whose lust and heartbreak for John Proctor results in a homicidal goose chase. Because of her hate towards Proctor’s wife, Elizabeth, Abigail creates demented tales, directed at abolishing the “problem.” Though Abigail’s wild canards seem quite obtuse in civilization today, at the time her acts fell to justification.
Do her hateful actions against tom really show how “sweet” she is, or do her actions show an abused girl worn down by her fathers repulsive behavior.. An example of this is when Mayella lures tom into her house knowing it was wrong, “She grabbed me around the legs(.....) She reach'd up and kissed th' side of me face,”(Lee, 194) Mayella is a very deceptive person, she practically sets him up for this big scandal, then puts the blame on Tom, who is in fact the mockingbird. Mayella has been subjected to many horrific events and much sorrow but that does not excuse her for condemning a man. Further more Mayella weak testimony only further promote hate and anger in Maycomb, "I got somethin' to say an' then I ain't gonna say no more. That nigger yonder took advantage of me an' if you fine fancy gentlemen don't wanta do nothin' about it then you're all yellow stinkin' cowards, stinkin' cowards, the lot of you. Your fancy airs don't come to nothin' – your ma'amin' and Miss Mayellerin' don't come to nothin', Mr. Finch,"(Lee, 290).
In the play king Lear, mercy is an insatiable trait which is surrounded by so much hate and malice every time love is given it makes those moments so much more enjoyable. In the begging of the Play King Lear, Cordelia the king’s daughter, is outcast, cheated of her inheritance accused of being a wicked child and one that nature is a shamed of (I,i,215-219). Even though at the beginning of the play king Lear disowns his daughter and she has every right to be unloving to him; when they are reunited King Lear offers to harm himself but Cordelia turns that idea away and forgives him when she asks to take a walk with her father (4,VII,83). People want to see mercy, they want to see those that deserve worse receive compassion and mercy Lear deserved to be turned away but Cordelia showed tenderness to her aging father and
