If you are raised with neglectful parents, you wouldn’t have a proper mentor to tell you what’s right and wrong, so that could cause you to do bad things and lose your innocence. Also, if you are raised with abusive and drunk parents, it could cause you to resent and hate them. An example of someone like that would be Johnny; he hates his parents so much that he refused his mother to let her see him in the hospital. “I've got a RIGHT to see him! He's my son!
In order for him to do this, he tests their loyalty to see who loves him the most. His two daughters, Goneril and Regan, give the satisfaction of false praise and flattery to Lear so that they can get the land that they desperately want. Cordelia, his youngest daughter refuses to give in to him like her sisters do and has no words to describe
Thy strength, Hester; but let it be guided by the will which God hath granted me! This wretched and wronged old man is opposing it with all his The Scarlet Letter might!—with all his own might, and the fiend’s! Come, Hester—come! Support me up yonder scaffold’” (Hawthorne 263). Dimmesdale wanted to die in Hester’s hands when he confessed that he is truly Pearl’s father.
All that glitters isnt gold Theme of Ignorance and Blindness Beginning of the story--- King Lear true ignorance is shown when he asked his daughters to tell him how much they love him... shows how he has become ignorant with his enormous amounts of power--- Middle- after he has been kicked out of his kingdom begins to notice his wrong doings Elements Character- KL: King Lear, Duke of Albany, Earl of Gloucester HMT: Government and High class, Offred, women in general ( ignorant to men in society) other themes: power and its affect on the sanity and common sense in society eyes in hmt Ignorance of Women, Ignorance of Men, How the ignorance of both genders affects the other gender Ignorance of Males in Society---- kl -kl,albany and gloucester Handmaids Tale- Commanders, NEED FOR POWER, MIS TREATMENT OF WOMEN, Punishment( banishment of Cordelia in King Lear) OVERALL BLINDNESS---- RESULTS OF THESE CHARACTERSITCS OF MALES IN SOCIETY In both works, ignorance is a trait noticeable in both female and male characters but because of the dominant roles of men in both King Lear and The Handmaids Tale , ????????? Through the male characters' need to power and dominance, their mistreatment of women and the unjust punishemnet they set out for others, one can clearly notice the errors of the characters ways and therefore are exemplary examples of the strong inclusion of the theme of ignornace in both works. To begin, in both works many of the major male characters show ill feelings towards women, ultimately treating them poorly. In King Lear , the title character of the King has moments in which he shows his lack of respect for the women of his court, namely his three daughters. ???????????
Romeo and Juliet are devastated that they love the enemy: “Prodigious birth of love it is to me, / That I must love a loathed enemy” (1.5.142-144). Romeo and Juliet are supposed to be enemies and are not allowed to see each other. Capulet threatens Juliet to rush her into marrying Paris: “And you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the street, / For, by my soul, I’ll never acknowledge thee” (3.5.194-195). Capulet is harsh on Juliet to marry Paris but Juliet is already married so she feels like she needs to take drastic measures. The Prince tells the families his opinion when Romeo and Juliet are found dead: “Where be these enemies?
In addition, Jason curses himself saying, “My curses on you” (61), accentuating he should have known better the woman he had by his side, since he lacks knowledge such as Medea will murdering those who he holds nearest and dearest; his two sons and his bride. Jason believes he should have noticed Medea’s capacity for evilness and heartlessness long before, since she abandons her own family and kills her own brother. This demonstrates how Medea does not care at all about her actions; she only cares to make Jason suffer the pain she receives due to his betrayal. Jason’s catharsis develops when he expresses his pain “I must bemoan my fate” (61). He wishes to be left alone now to mourn his tragic losses which leave the audience to feel pity for him.
It’s dreadful when a man can’t trust his wife; it’s even worse when a man’s wife leaves him. Both scenarios are terrible, yet is it worse to lose your wife or to be second guessing her every intention? In the story “The Other Two” we see Waythorn lose trust in his wife due to her lack of truth about her previous marriages. In the story “A Temporary Matter” we see a couple that has lost the spark in their relationship after Shoba gave birth to a still borne, ultimately leading to her ending the relationship with Shukumar. Both of these stories show how any relationship, if not kept healthy, honest, and maintained can lead to a lack of trust or in severe cases, a breakup.
Later in the poem, Hughes accuses his wife of abandoning her family. The repetition of “you” in the lines “unravelled your marriage, left your children echoing like tunnels in labyrinth, left your mother a dead-end” emphasises the immensely accusatory tone of the poem. These accusations in The Minotaur show that Hughes puts all blame for their failed marriage onto his wife, and is not taking any of the responsibility. Hughes’s view of Plath is a conflicting perspective to society’s view of the couple’s relationship. How Hughes portrays his conflicting perspective
In the story, Stella-Rondo, who is the younger sister of Sister, tries to turn Papa-Daddy against Sister, and tells a lie to Papa-Daddy that Sister thinks he should have cut his beard. The lie makes Papa-Daddy very angry. However, Sister fails to show her innocence because she doesn’t have a clear communication with Papa-Daddy to let him know the truth which she has never said that. She just simply leaves the table when Papa-Daddy is blaming on her, gives up the chance clarifying the truth (44). Sister is not confident enough to communicate with Papa-Daddy.
Antigone proves Creon’s lack of compassion when she states “No other brother can be born or grows again. That is my principle, which Creon stigmatized as crimina, my principle for honoring you, my dearest brother” (232). Creon’s arrogance leads to his son’s death because he refuses to believe his son indicate that he has created an inferior reputation. Haemon mentions to Creon that “The kind of man who always thinks that he is right, that his opinions, his pronouncements, are the final word, is usually exposed as hollow as they come...So let your anger cool, and change your mind” (222). Creon becomes too vain that he assumes Haemon “is hopelessly on the woman’s [Antigone’s] side” (224).
