| 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.
Jason says “Cypris was alone responsible,” meaning Medea’s falling in love wasn’t natural but wholly caused by a goddess. Jason identifies and applauds Medea’s reasonings of the “attack on [his] wedding,” to persuade her to believe that his getting married to the princess could end happily for everyone. He tries to explain his reasonings of leaving Medea by first listing the reasons he is not leaving her, followed by a shift, and then telling why he is leaving her and how it could be a benefit to not only himself, but to her and the children also. Jason wisely uses logical placements of sequencing words throughout his speech. “Firstly,” “secondly,” and “next” help his argument because they give his speech some order.
Haley Muggy Basuli SURVEY WOMENS LIT ENGL315A SEC 001 3/14/13 Option #2 The Yellow Wallpaper and its’ Relation to Sandra Fluke From the very beginning of “The Yellow Wallpaper”, written by Charlotte Perkins Gillman, it is clear that the main character is being oppressed and demeaned by her husband John. “John laughs at me, of course, but one expects that in marriage,” she writes about her husbands’ reaction to her questions about their future summer home. The fact that she says that being mocked is expected in marriage is a sad thought, and makes me hope that we have come a long way when it comes to marital relationships since this story was written. This story is set in the 19th century, and was written to draw attention to the need for women’s physical and mental health to be taken more seriously. “Hysteria” was a common diagnosis seen in only women for hundreds of years in Western Europe.
That is more than once on a line. Every speech of Don John’s contains at least one ‘I’. Benedick also tries to turn the subject to himself. For example, when Claudio has just confessed to Benedick that he loves Hero, Benedick basically says that he doesn’t know how anyone could love her and then turns the subject to himself, saying he would never fall in love and will stay a bachelor forever. To sum Don John up in one word, it would have to be mischievous.
The character of Penelope is an illustrious representative of loyalty in this epic. Penelope is a faithful wife, who after twenty long years apart from her husband, still refuses to marry one of the awaiting suitors. There even came a time when Penelope told the suitors that she would wed once she finished Odysseusâ€™s father shroud, yet she narrates how , â€œ.. by day Iâ€™d weave at my great and growing web-by night, by the night of the torches set besides me, I would unravel all Iâ€™d doneâ€ (Homer, Book XIX ,p 431 ,167 ). The fact that she devises schemes to keep the suitors distracted shows her intention to remain true to Odysseus. The author uses this scenario this to prove her complete loyalty to her beloved husband.
In much ado about nothing, marriage is another strong theme being that the story line is based around Claudio wanting to marry hero. From the first scene in the book Claudio wants to marry hero and seemingly nothing will stop him. In the odyssey, Odysseus’s main flaw is his pride and his inability to take an insult. This is bad in the odyssey because he insults the gods after his battles with his boastful pride which in turn angers them greatly. This is one of the reasons Poseidon decided to punish Odysseus and keep his ship at sea for so long.
Mis-shapen chaos of well-seeming forms! ROMEO Well, in that hit you miss: she'll not be hit With Cupid's arrow; she hath Dian's wit; And, in strong proof of chastity well arm'd, From love's weak childish bow she lives unharm'd. She will not stay the siege of loving terms, Nor bide the encounter of assailing eyes, Nor ope her lap to saint-seducing gold: […] BENVOLIO Then she hath sworn that she will still live chaste? (1.1.208-217) Romeo admits that Rosaline has vowed to remain "chaste" like "Diana," the goddess of virginity and hunting. In other words, Rosaline has sworn off boys and sex, which means that Romeo has no chance of winning her heart.
but come what sorrow can, It cannot countervail the exchange of joy That one short minute gives me in her sight: Do thou but close our hands with holy words, Then love-devouring death do what he dare; It is enough I may but call her mine. -Romeo (2.6.1) They knew that they were not supposed to get married, and that by doing so, it would cause nothing but problems. Yet they still chose to marry. Lastly, Romeo and Juliet decided to keep their
Salinger refers to the infamous lyrics composed by Robert Burns a second time: during Holden=s quarrel with Phoebe. At the time of this incident - after Phoebe tells Holden he is incapable to like anything - Holden impulsively manages to sputter AYou know that song >if a body catch a body comin= through the rye=? I’d like-A before being interrupted mid-speech by Phoebe. Holden implies he would want to be the catcher in the rye; feeling as if it=s his role to protect, and preserve the innocence of children; preventing them from falling off the cliff into the sea of adulthood. Furthermore, after Holden’s dispute with Phoebe, he learns his interpretation of the Catcher In The Rye lyrics was apocryphal.
In King Lear’s Act I, Lear disowns and banishes his youngest daughter, Cordelia, from the kingdom because she failed to partake in Lear’s childish game of telling him how much she loves him. Lear: “Let it be so, thy truth then be thy dower!” (I.i 110). Cordelia, being a compassionate person, finds it in her heart to be present when Lear needs her most, Cordelia: “O my dear father! Restoration hang thy medicine on my lips; and let this kiss repair those violent harms that my two sisters have in thy reverence made!” (IV.vii 25-29) This quotation proves what kind of person Cordelia is, in that her compassion and ability to forgive enabled her to look past her father’s unfair and unjust treatment. At the time of her father’s sickness, Cordelia chose to show compassion and forgiveness instead of retributive justice.
