Alluding back to this quote, Wharton exposes these feelings for what they really are when Ethan's wife, Zeena, leaves him home alone with her caretaker, and cousin, Mattie for a couple days. In spite of this, Gabriel rebelled in a slightly different way. To expand, Gabriel didn't really appreciate his wife, Gretta, and often thought of leaving her. Yet, he stayed; for if he left, Gabriel would face the ultimate punishment, social isolation. Therefore, he caused turbulence with himself, because he was going against his true feelings to satisfy his lust and desire for a companion.
“Seeing” is a major symbol throughout the story, and when analyzed so much more can be understood about the characters, and the theme of the story. The name Seymour, but pronounced “see-more” tells the reader that he interrupts society in a different more realistic light. He did not always have this view point, but during the war he was exposed to life or death situations, and had to live on the bare essentials. Upon coming back to the United States he realized that people were very materialistic, and lived what he thought were fake lives. Muriel is more concerned about her appearance than her husband’s emotions, and reads women’s magazines while Seymour reads poetry.
In the soliloquy, Hamlet is at first upset with himself about finding ways to avoid avenging his Father’s murder, like his spirit in ghost form told him to. This complaining turns into self hatred and then Hamlet is insulting himself outright. The main reason for this is he has agreed to get revenge on Claudius so his father’s spirit can be at peace, but he hasn’t done it yet. The fact that the Player seems to be more able to get into the mindset of revenge than he can further discourages him. This on top of the fact that Hamlet’s dad is dead and his mother married that man he hates most in the world makes for a pretty melancholy fellow.
The narrator explains his experience, “With the first glimpse of the building, a sense of insufferable gloom pervaded my spirit.” (Poe 397) This is the first effect Poe creates for the narrator. He is explaining that while looking up at the mansion, the gloom that spread through his spirit was too extreme to bear. The mental effect he feels from viewing the house undoubtedly makes him uneasy and concerned with what is about to come. The description he gave of the house is an obvious sign that the visit he was about to encounter with Roderick Usher was not going to be the most pleasant or comfortable one. The narrator says, “I looked upon the scene before me, upon the mere house, upon the bleak walls, upon the vacant eyelike windows, with an utter depression of soul.” (Poe 397) From the characteristics the narrator gave of the house, he would ultimately feel depressed because there was no signs of life.
The main character suffers from depression. Her husband wants to help with her illness, but only helps make her worse by preventing her from enjoying what she loves the most. "There comes John, and I must put this away, he hates to have me write words. "(Gilman,Charlotte) John does not think that his wife should write, rather he wants her to rest everyday in the room with yellow wallpaper. The wallpaper however begins to take a toll on the woman’s life.
She desire for love and affection from someone so she can escape from the past she had. In many scenes in the play, Stella gets looked down upon by her husband Stanley. In the play A Street Car Named Desire, loneliness was portrayed in the character Blanche DuBois. Ever since the boy she loved committed suicide, she became very lonely. Her loneliness comes into play when her promiscuous behavior started to occur.
Sir Toby first displays a sense of rudeness towards Olivia when he states, “What a plague means my niece to take the death of her thus? I am sure care’s an enemy to life”(1.3.1), because, although his nephew has recently passed away, it does not occur to him to provide Olivia with any kind of comfort but instead question her mourning, which portrays him as insensitive and could be the reason why they don’t hold a close relationship. It is reasonable to hypothesize that Sir Toby has inhabited Olivia’s house for quite some time now because he feels comfortable enough to always be inebriate and disregard the multiple times that Olivia threatens to oust him from her house if he continues to drink. Maria, however, always reminds him that “That quaffing and drinking will undo....”(1.3.13) him. His ignorance towards her confirm the lack of respect he has towards her as a person and as a family member.
Some grieve over words that can never be said or heard, others over someone they won’t see again, and so on. Abby grieves over her marriage as she reveals to Oskar that, “My husband and I had been having a terrible fight” (Foer 290). William Black, her ex-husband is able to attain closure when Oskar gives him the key to a safe that belonged to his deceased father. A.R. Black grieves over his wife’s death by hammering nails into their bed and for his loss of hearing.
The full conflict of which he feels and keeps concealed within himself is not explained. Some insight into Hamlet’s true feelings are revealed however, through his soliloquies and asides. Although Hamlet mourns his father’s death, we see that the source of his depression lies in his mother’s hasty marriage. This has turned his world into “... an unweeded garden/ That grows to seed; things rank and gross in nature/ Possess it, merely” (I.ii.135-137). While he accumulates more and more evidence of Claudius’ obvious guilt, he constantly returns to the theme of his mother’s remarriage, a source of pain equally as unbearable as the circumstances of his father’s death.
I have the right to say what miseries I have endured…Endlessly I have suffered the wretchedness of exile.” She is commanded to stay where she is by her lord, but dwells on the fact that she has no friends or anyone that she can trust where she is, which creates sadness for her. “My lord had ordered me to take up my abode here, though I had among these people few dear loyal friends; therefore my heart is sad.” She then finds out that her husband has been hiding murderous thoughts through a facade. Throughout the poem she expresses the anguish felt by longing for a lover that will never come by reflecting back on times when he says that the only thing that will tear them apart is death, and feels as though their marriage and love has vanished. To add onto the disheartening tone the poem also tells about how she is told to live in a cave with very
