After first being separated from Psyche then becoming bitter from not seeing the same things as Psyche once reunited, I realized the tragedy was that not only did Orual never found the “love of the Gods,” she also never learned to love her life and accept herself as the person she was. While she is described by her subjects as "the most wise, just, valiant, fortunate and merciful" of all rulers, Orual feels that her actions are only a mask of her inner ugliness. She despairs of ever overcoming her hideousness inside. She says, "I would set out boldly each morning to be just and calm and wise in all my thoughts and acts, but before
Meanwhile, his son has fallen in love with an outsider and refuses to be joined in marriage to anyone but. Never having heard of such blasphemy, the father will not, and plans to never have anything to do with his daughter-in-law to be. After a long time of straining to keep his son out of his mind and avoiding his name, a single letter challenges his beliefs and reminds him that there may be more important things than his pride. Okeke is a very prideful man and very committed to his tribe and it’s traditions. He is without a doubt sure that he has chosen the perfect wife for his son Nnaemeka.
| But Cordelia, Lear’s youngest and favourite daughter, remains silent, saying that she has no words to describe how much she loves her father. | ‘unhappy that I am, I cannot heave my heart into my mouth; I love your majesty according to my bond, no more nor less’ (ACT1SCENE1-86-88)When the loyal Gloucester realizes that Lear’s daughters have turned against their father, he decides to help Lear in spite of the danger. | Regan and her husband, Cornwall, discover him helping Lear, accuse him of treason, blind him, and turn him out to wander the countryside. He ends up being led by his disguised son, Edgar, toward the city of Dover, where Lear has also been brought. | The quote I was given is Act4 scene5 ‘Come on, sir, here’s the place.
Even though they have been together in the past, the fact that they are not together at the time of the story shows how their relationship must have failed and therefore love is seen as unobtainable. He seems to place Daisy so high on a pedestal that she is in a way already unreachable. He loves her so much, with so much passion, worked so hard to be up to her standards (bought the house, throws all these parties…). However, she has never turned up to any of his parties or shown any interest in a certain Gatsby showing that love is unobtainable. Jordan mentions to Nick that “he half expected her to wander into one of his parties but she never did, then he began asking people casually if they knew her”.
Hester is the least sinful because she only committed adultrey and that she never told Arthur chillingworth was her husband. The next most sinful person is Reverend Arthur dimmesdale. For example, When the puritans trusted him and thought " Wow he is an amazing minister!" little did they all know that he was a father to little pearl. He hid behind religion and he couldnt be honest with the puritans and confess his sin of being a father.

Intro Subject followed by purpose and emotion: In this scene, Lear realizes the error in his ways by banishing Cordelia and separating the remaining land to Goneril and Regan. Albany enters and Lear questions him whether he had anything to do with the relieving of his 50 knights however Albany states for whatever reason Lear is upset, he had no part in it. Subsequently, Lear gets enraged with Goneril and calls upon the goddess of nature to wish upon her curses such as infertility. Albany asks his wife why Lear is so enraged and Goneril responds by stating its nothing more than a senile man ranting and to not concern himself with such affairs. Lear, assaulted womanhood and his attitude towards women was revealed in the depth of the curse and what omens he wished upon Goneril.
She says in Act I, “When you do become engaged to someone, I, or your father, should his health permit, will inform you of the fact”. Even though she does acknowledge that her husband should be part of the decision, she places herself before him and also belittles him by commenting on his poor health. In fact, Lord Bracknell, is never issued directly throughout the entire piece. As soon as Lady Bracknell’s introduced on the set, she begins commanding and controlling Gwendolen (and through her Jack). Evidently Lady Bracknell values society and its values, saying, “Never speak disrespectfully of Society,” but she goes totally against these values by playing the role of her husband in her daughter’s life (hypocritical).
King Lear is the title character of the play, so it is obvious he is pretty important. And in the play, he definitely knows it. This is evidenced by his inflated sense of self; he has such an ego that he wants to hear his daughters profess their love for him, saying “Which of you shall we say doth love us most,” (Act I Scene I Line 51) and when one refuses, disowns her, as well as banishing his best friend for disagreeing with him. However, these rash actions suggest something more to me. I think that inside, Lear is insecure.
When his most loved daughter comments on her sister’s reactions about his wishes, he then begins to go insane after irrationally separating his land between two of his three daughters based on their charm bringing terrible consequences for everyone. I would say that’s Lear’s first mistake; separating power and responsibility. His two eldest daughters are prepared to be in control of their own lives (age wise) but not necessarily mature enough. A reason of immaturity from the daughters that Lear didn’t notice was how fond they were of him when he declared his wanting, therefore, they aren’t ready to rule a kingdom. They allowed their father to act as if he is still in charge.
