Oberon: Manipulative or not? What does it mean to be manipulative? Well, in William Shakespeare’s play ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, Oberon and Titania have a big disliking for each other even though they are husband and wife. The thing with Oberon is that he really wants the Indian boy so he can become apart of his crew but Titania won’t allow Oberon to have hi. This is where one realizes how well Shakespeare shows characterization towards Oberon being manipulative because he orders Puck to put the love in idleness flower on someone with Athenian clothing, he used the same flower on Titania while she slept to help him get the Indian boy, and his reaction to finding out Titania fell in love with an ass.
Odysseus didn’t have to keep those women and use them he could have just killed him as he did the men. He had other intentions instead of just killing them he used them for his crew and his own enjoyment. They were a prize for winning over the city such as the plunder was. Another instance where Odysseus sleeps with other women is when he is about to leave Calypso’s island, “the sun set and the darkness swept the earth./ And now, withdrawing into the caverns deep recesses,/ long in each other's arms they lost themselves in love”(Homer 5 48-51). Here Odysseus sleeps with Calypso the night before he leaves.
Through these speeches, Plato implies that homosexual love is the highest and most honorable love to pursuit, and through his focus on homosexual love, the author justifies the idea of Heavenly Love. Pausanias argues that the true goal of Heavenly Love is to inspire young boys to find pleasure in the more intelligent older male. The objective of this love is for the older male to “share everything with the one he loves…” (Plato 14). However, in this sense of sharing, Pausanias only means knowledge. If the younger boy surrender to the older male for his personal gain such as money or office post then this homosexual love is no longer belong to the ideal of Heavenly Love.
I think he realizes that his presumptuous little flirtation is over.” * This quote emphasizes how the upper crust 1920’s society of NY has substituted materialism with spirituality (or I guess you could say they could worship money..). Tom easily forgives Daisy for her infidelity because he doesn’t care about her or his marriage, he simply cares about the illusion of a marriage they put up together. In contrast to this, Gatsby cannot forgive Daisy for loving Tom rather than him because he wants their love to be flawless, the way he sees it in his dream – the American Dream. Chapter 8 #1 - “I jumped out of bed and began to dress-I felt that I had something to tell him, something to warn him about and morning would be too
Hitchhiking, he meets Jan and Rainey, who are like the parents he always needed. They talk about their son. They take him to a hippie spot, where he meets Tracy T., who falls in love with him. At one point, she offers him to sleep with her, but he refuses, as she is too young. This story is the opposite of American stereotype, because they mostly try to dominate nature for their own good.
He is ashamed of her foreign family and remembers with disgust how Jelka's father advised him on their wedding night to beat her once in a while, Their Marriage is not a nor mal because Jelka is quiet and spends her time making Jim's happy and taking care of the house. Jim's hot dinner is waiting no matter what time he comes in from the fields. Also, Jim makes no emotional connection with her and eventually looks elsewhere for companionship. Therefore, after a year of being bored with Jelka, Jim starts to long for the company of silly, chatty women and begins to go to the "Three Star," which is a brothel in Monterey where he often amused himself prior to his marriage.

Since Odysseus left to go to war, he unintentionally neglected the chance to have a bonding partnership with his son Telemachus and a marital relationship with his wife Penelope. By remembering the family he has waiting for him at home, Odysseus does his best to seek a way home. Enchantress Circe informs him that “in order to reach home he must journey to the land of the dead, Hades, and consult the blind prophet Tiresias” (Homer.1.1064). In contrast to Odysseus, Edward lacks a relationship with his wife and son because he travels a lot. Unlike Odysseus, Edward has a better chance of improving the family connection he lacks because he is home from time to time.
Sonny, in contrast, has no interest in school, or listening to any of his elder brother’s advice. James’ concern is realized when he discovers his brother is hooked on heroine and is undergoing rehabilitation. These two brothers never see eye to eye and take very different paths to escape the turmoil of the inner city in what the author calls “the darkness outside.” As the story unfolds, Sonny teaches the teacher that personal freedom and happiness can take many different paths.
It is interesting that Olfelia will be able to exist in a world where time does not matter; because this is something the Captain desires so much. He wants his family name to live on forever, and the only way that he could achieve this goal is by fathering a son; to the Captain, his son is the only way he can defy mortality. In fact he does not even question that his wife might be carrying a girl. When Carmen first came to see the Captain, he felt her belly and confidently believed that it would be a boy. It is clear that he does not even care for his wife’s health; she is just a mediator between him and his son, who he could pass on the inheritance and his name to.
He cries himself to sleep each and every night because he has no one to look up to in his life. Tyson thinks quite a lot of his mother and she is very special to him, but she is just not the masculine strength that he needs. His mother is always reassuring him that he is a handsome, young man and will one day find a companion. That is truly the least of Tyson’s concerns when he has a mother to look after and provide for. The only companion that he really wants is his father so that he can teach him how to hunt properly.
