Him being drunk in this scene allows Shakespeare to develop his character both positively and negatively through an example of malapropism. He mishears a question asked of him by Olivia and ultimately confuses the word ''lethargy'' with ''lechery.'' Although the result of this is comic, it is also quite a crude joke and is an example of 'bad comedy'. This shows that Toby has a rude, inappropriate side to him. 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.
It is shown by how Carton and Darnay acts when Carton asks Darnay to dinner. Carton gets drunk and starts badgering Darnay about how his life sucks and that everyone hates him and that he hates himself. Darnay sits quietly and tries to defend that Carton should not hate himself very politely. This behavior from Carton finally makes Darnay angry enough to leave so Darnay excuses himself very gentlemanlike. This shows that Darnay and Carton are clearly different.
You may have gathered by now that we were poor, but not just money poor. Both of my parents were alcoholics, and my mother being a mean drunk. There was no physical abuse, unless, I reckon, you count hunger pains, but it was more that she would say mean things. In retrospect I suppose I looked a lot like my father, whom she loved dearly when she was sober, but seemed to hate when she was drunk. Don’t get me wrong, I loved both my parents very much and was especially close to my father, when he was sober.
She often presents a playful good-natured impertinence that does not offend. Early in the novel she is depicted as being personally proud of her mental quickness and her acuity in judging the social behaviour and intentions of others. Of her family, Elizabeth is her father's favourite, described by him as having "something more of quickness than her sisters". In contrast, she is the least dear to her mother, especially after Elizabeth refuses a marriage proposal from Mr. Collins. Elizabeth is also often upset and embarrassed by the behaviour of her mother and of her younger sisters.
Jealousy is an emotion and it basically refers to the negative thoughts of fear over a loss of something that the person values such as relationship or love. Jealousy can break your friendships and marriages due to several problems and it can cause a lot of pain. In Jealousy you get out of control and do whatever your mind says to do even it’s right or not. It can last as long as you want to be. Jealousy in Othello results in the tragic ending like in the beginning of the play, Iago was jealoused of Cassio because he wanted to get Cassio’s position as a lieutenant, Rogerigo was jealoused of Othello because Desdemona loves Othello and not him and Othello was jealoused of Cassio because he thought that Cassio loves Desdemona more than him.
While Tom uses his great wealth and loud personality to draw Daisy’s attention. Their hostility and dislike for one another demonstrates another similarity that they share. At the Plaza Hotel Tom and Gatsby get into an argument and show their dislike toward one another. They both bring up each other's faults and reveal them to their surrounding friends. They also throw insults toward one another.
It is only when one hears pet names from someone one does not love that they are condescending, and until the climax of the play, Nora genuinely loves Torvald. We know this because she saves her husband’s life with a morally questionable act. This act may have ultimately led to the undoing of the marriage, but she does it “out of love” (209) nonetheless. Nora feels that Torvald has been kind to her, and she “thought it was fun when [Torvald] played with [her]” (249). And play they do.
Alcohol addiction There are many reasons why people start drinking alcohol. People drink it normally because they enjoy the taste, some drink it because they want to become drunk but some drink it because they want to forget things. At this point alcohol becomes a huge problem meaning that potential addiction can happen. Alcohol addiction is a very serious problem around the world, it can affect you socially which means your social life will get destroyed but also it will affect you financially which also covers the fact that almost no company wants to work with an alcoholic and therefore you will be financially broke. In this essay I will explain how a person could become an alcohol addict and what the first signs for being alcoholic are.
He wrote on the page to add in details about his kids. Jane Austen begins to describe Sir Walter’s character and explains that he has been extremely vain since he was a young handsome boy. Currently at fifty-four he is still a very attractive man. She even says that “few women could think more of their personal appearance than he did.” The only blessing he considered to be better to that of beauty was the blessing of a baronetcy. Since he possessed both of these, he considered himself to be the best.
At this point, I was sure it was Della that worshipped her husband and he was not so devoted to his wife. It turned out Jim had sold his watch, of which he ‘‘took a mighty pride over’’ (p.2). It was then I realised the love they each shared for one another. Jim sold his prize possession to have enough money to buy Della the combs ‘‘her heart had had simply craved and yearned over without the least hope of possession’’ (p.4). This is why I particularly enjoyed and took pleasure this moving story.
