They both explore the theme of love or rather painful love. the poet revels the link between the two poems’s through a verity of techniques which is done very effectively but also shows the difference between the obsessive love in “Havisham” and the possessive love of “Valentine”. The pain of love is evident from the beginning in both poems. “Carol Ann Duffy” uses the tone in the first couple of stanzas to show the unorthodox nature of the love. “Not a day since then I haven’t whished him dead”-Havisham This is very effective as the aggressive tone shows “Havisham” has been rejected and her love is causing her pain.
This shows that inner beauty always conquers outer beauty in the end. In both plays Roxanne and Cyrano de Bergerac outer beauty triumphs only in the shallow beginning but character and inner beauty always receives the victory in the end. That is the universal theme throughout both Cyrano de Bergerac and
Here we can make a small conclusion that men are real and capable but women are the creations of imagination. Nevertheless, the other clue of this poem gives us an obvious evidence. From the last lines, “Eventual victor, out of the martyr’s bones/ The ultimate elegance: the imagined land.” It demonstrates the elegance is unchangeable principle that elegance nurses everything alive. And how come the lady, Mrs. Alfred Urugay you say no
Benedick is a womaniser and thinks that all women like him. A literary device in the form of non-sequitur is used where Benedick states unsupported opinions. He claims that “It is certain I am loved of all ladies, except you,” which implies that he wants to be loved by her. This reveals his vain and his arrogant side – he thinks he can get whatever he wants. His arrogance, hence, gives us the impression that he has the power in this relationship as he thinks that he can get whatever he wants and, although stubborn, will never step down from his desires.
Opposite to Macbeth’s scariness and cowardliness, Lady Macbeth shows her aggressiveness, ruthlessness, and resolution, which actually are contrary to traditional gender convention. Lady Macbeth yells excitedly to Macbeth: Great Glamis! Worthy Cawdor! Greater than both, by the all-hail hereafter!
She simply will not let the matter rest and it is her persistence that allows Mariane to realize that she does not and should not have to marry Tartuffe when she is in love with another man. Dorine and Mariane are examples of strong women that defy societal norms and become stronger individuals because of it. They challenge what is simply accepted by other women and demonstrate that women do have voices and deserve to be heard. This inparticluar is something I really enjoyed while reading this play. the entire play represents a clash of reason and feelings.
In this conversation the poet uses colloquial language to bring the characters alive. For example ‘Lo, I have brought my gift’ where Maude Clare draws attention to herself. Rossetti shows Maude Clare’s personality through the use of imperative verbs, for example ‘Take my share of a fickle heart’ followed by ‘Take it or leave it as you will’. This shows that Maude Clare is strong and determined despite being rejected by Thomas. In Victorian society women were expected to be passive and honest, and competed for more wealthy and worthy men.
Instability of mental health is juxtaposed against Jane. Where she exhibits few sexual cues and is almost presented androgynous. Purity is a common adjective repeatedly used to convey and emphasize Jane’s unblemished virginity. Quite the converse of passion (which is an unstable mind), Jane is pure and thus mentally stable. This appeals to Mr Rochester, noting “And it is you, spirit--with will and energy, and virtue and purity--that I want…”.
Truth, conversely, is defined as being true or real. I agree with this definition of truth as think truth relates to genuine qualities such as honesty and loyalty. Beauty cannot, in my opinion, be defined: it can be anything that one finds beautiful in life and does not by definition relate to exterior appearances. I believe that beauty relates to anything in life that makes it that much more beautiful. Beauty, to me, is confidence, happiness and a sense of humour, traits I find attractive.
