Nelly, I am Heathcliff! He’s always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being” (64). Catherine is falling in love with Heathcliff and Hindley does not want this to happen. He hates Heathcliff and doesn’t want his sister to love him; he wants
She is the perfect example of how women of her level of society were supposed to act in her day. The circumstances surrounding Gatsby and Daisy's relationship kept them eternally apart. For Daisy to have been with Gatsby would have been forbidden, due to the fact that she was married. Marriage at the time was all about finding a suitable match, not about finding the one you truly loved. This means that even society makes love unobtainable and we can see that through the fact that Daisy’s mum wasn’t even supportive of her love for Gatsby when she had found her “packing her
Myrtle Wilson is ashamed of her social position in life because she is poor. First off, when she is with Tom, (which is wrong in the first place) she is lifted of her under-class blemishes, even though Tom has abused her. When Tom and Nick go into town to the apartment party, Nick states, “Making a short deft movement, Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand”(37). It is never okay no matter what situation a person is in to hit a woman. Tom is so arrogant that he thinks he can do whatever he wants.
Torvald’s attitude toward Nora Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House” is a very controversial play that wounded every man’s masculinity and triggered their self-preservation alarm. Nora’s bold choice to leave her husband, along with her duties as a mother and as a housewife, caused a wave of criticism mostly, if not entirely, from the male population. In the 1800s it was unheard off for the woman to take full control over the situation, make her own decisions and most importantly to stand up and leave behind her spouse. Henrik Ibsen challenged the society’s mentality and shook the very foundation it was built on with his three act play. Evolution of Torvald’s character is shown from a man in control of his life, his wife and his household, to a man in front of whom his whole perfect life falls apart all thanks to one woman.
The universal truth behind this story is that the innate differences between men and women coupled with lack of communication will cause a marriage to stagnate and become an uneasy compromise. Insensitive and inconsiderate of his wife's feelings, Michael openly admits his attraction to other women. Frances wants to know his true feelings and he gives them to her cold, "I got all this stuff accumulated in me because I've been thinking about it for ten years and now you've asked for it and here it is." (7) He does not acknowledge his wife's despair; he knows he is wrong and yet he feels righteous because so far it has only been a physical attraction. Michael blithely dismisses his wife's pleas for reassurance.
Eddie Carbone and his wife Beatrice have brought up Eddie’ s niece Catherine like their own daughter. Eddie is a kind but strict guardian. He loves his niece but wants to be in control. In the first scene, he tells her that her new clothes are too sexy, then that she can’t take the job she wants. He tells her that she is acting in a way he doesn't approve of, he says that she is ‘walkin’ wavy’ and that this is making men notice her and ‘their heads are turning like windmills’.
The reader second guesses their first opinion of him and sees a selfish side to him, as he is drunk at his cousins funeral with no regards to other peoples feelings. These are not the expected actions of a character whose sole purpose is to be comic. Act 2, Scene 3. Throughout this scene, Toby continues to show a different side to the funny personality he is assumed to have. There is something unpleasant about him and he is certainly not simply comic although he does provide some comedy.
He’s always laying down laws for her and expecting her to obey him, constantly self-obsessed, wanting to protect his innocence. Consequently as the play develops Eddie is finding it more and more difficult to accept that Catherine is growing up this leads Eddie to change to a more aggressive, angry and jealous person leading to his downfall and eventual death. Eddie is depicted as an interesting character by Miller right from the offset of the play as he is portrayed to be an ordinary, everyman figure. This is shown many times during the course of the play, and is highlighted particularly in the opening scenes. One example of this is when Miller first introduces Eddie after Alfieri’s speech, Eddie has returned home from working on a boat as a longshoreman and says ‘I’ll see ya fellas’.
Before this line, Jordan remarks that she’s “never seen a girl so mad about her husband,” it’s more like Daisy was mad with worry that her husband was off with some other woman. That’s why she would look “uneasy” when he wasn’t around, because she knew of the possibility. Daisy, entirely aware of her husband’s infidelities does nothing to stop them yet she complains that she is unhappy. She has no right to do so seeing as she had the choice of not marring Tom but
LAdy Bracknell: Her major concerns where class and money. She did not like Jack because he didn’t know who his parents where making him not to know his social class. Mrs. Bracknell did not want her daughter to be married to a low social class man who could just be "interested in her daughters money". Later throughout the reading I was introduced to Cecily who was Jacks ward. She was "in love" with Algernon who was acting as if he was Earnest(i.e.
