Compare the ways the poet presents ideas about relationships in Sister Maude and Farmers Bride. In Sister Maude Rossetti presents a quarrel between the two sisters. This is shown when she says ‘but sister Maude shall get no sleep’; this suggests that she thinks her sister will go to hell because of what she has done. The fact that she doesn’t use a personal pronoun for her sister suggests that she has disowned her and believes that she is no longer part of the family. The phrase ‘no sleep’ is a euphemism for death and suggests that she will pay for what she has done.
After telling her parents, the decision is made to send Billy Jean away to a special school where she can learn how to read and write. I find this ironic for two reasons. One is that the most vibrant of the characters with the most sparkle and zest is in fact the one that can not see. Billy Jean sees more within her family then her actually visual family members do. Also I find it ironic that it isn’t until after she is fully diagnosed that her family wants to send her away for an education to a special school.

It not only changes our view on Addie, but our view on the novel as a whole. Addie's voice is imparative to the reader's outlook and while we can sense it through the voices of others, her chapter best sums up her mind. So, what if Addie's chapter did not exsist? For one, we would never have comprehended her mind and the way it twists around things like how she feels about her children and husband. We would have all thought of her as still the same loving mother who watches her son, Cash, methodically build her coffin not because she is ready and wanting soon to be in it, but because he is her son and she loves to see him work.
Explore the Significance of Curley's Wife in 'Of Mice and Men' How is Curley's Wife presented in 'Of Mice and Men'? In this essay I will be discussing the significance of Curley's wife and outlining the main issues during the time era used in Steinbeck's novel. I will also be giving a brief look into the emotional turmoil of Curley's wife and why she was forced to mingle with others in hope of maybe achieving her version of the 'American dream' which ultimately is proven as useless since it leads to nothing but the demise of one of the main characters Lenny in a devastating turn of events. In some way one ciuld call this novel, very pessimistic or cynical, The novel reflects society's prejudice. People of color had no rights in America; they were considered sometimes 'unfit' for the world.
Her love for her lover falls because of his death and the character becomes abusive and harsh towards her sister . Set also in Victorian times , the poem describes a love that is strong that turns into a betrayal because of jealousy . In ‘Macbeth’, we hear Lady Macbeth’s voice more frequently than the farmer’s bride – she doesn’t seem to even speak through the entire poem. In ‘Macbeth’ when Macbeth is greeted by three witches as “King hereafter” , he sends a letter to his wife about the encounter , knowing that she loves him and that she will understand what she needs to do by providing the “direst cruelty” required for killing the king . When the letter arrives , Lady Macbeth instinctively understands that Macbeth’s letter to her is a silent request for help.
After Aunt Tam fought and “resisted with every bone” (186) in her body, she runs away, symbolizing the rise of women. The resistance given by Aunt Tam shows the strength within women and the lack of credit given to the gender. Aunt Tam, showing her resistance, proves the ignorance Vietnam has towards feminism. The Vietnam government tried to “…mask their own terror” (25) in order to cover up their tracks. A few methods to stop oppositions of feminism, as seen in the novel, were to silence them.
Lady Macbeth is constantly ridiculing Macbeth because he is too afraid to kill Duncan, and she even tells him that he might as well be a woman. This is ironic because in this quote, Lady Macbeth says “Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?” (5.1.39), which lets the readers know that she feels guilty. This guilt is what would eventually drive her to madness. Mental madness all due to an attempt to gain and maintain power; power both over their own selves and a run for
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 story you almost feel bad for her because her parents really do not take her side, but then find out she is a huge drama queen. She tries to get you to be on her side by making you feel sorry for her when in fact she is a jealous person towards everyone. She is really jealous of her sister and judges her sister for all of her mistakes.” The passage above supports my thesis due to the fact that Laura Lukes believes that due to Sisters selfishness she is unable to connect with you her family. Instead of Sister embracing her sister’s homecoming she tries to cause trouble. “And I said to Stella-Rondo, ‘I think I would do well not to criticize so freely if I were you and came home with a two-year-old child I had never said a word about, and no explanation whatever about my separation.’” The way
