Both Emily and Susan are expected to love Kane, but both become alienated by his coldness and lack of personal sacrifice. He expects Leland to provide him with platonic or fraternal love but is disappointed when Leland draws attention to his flaws. He fights for the love of the people in his quest to be governor but fails because he wants to control them and “tells them what to think”. Interestingly, it is his need for power and control that undermines his attainment of love as in all cases his refusal to give up “something he really cares about” to any of these people. When Leland and Kane toast to “love on [Kane’s] terms” the use of financial jargon like terms illuminates Kane’s misunderstanding of love attainment; He believes he can buy it, rather than
This is odd as the object of her affections is her husband,whom has no feelings towards her. He is undeserving of her love,as Emilia could be offering all this love to one whom actually deserves it. This is a good character trait in Emilia. Due to her not getting the love she wants from husband, she develops the belief that women should be able cheat on there husbands. Subsequently they had a rocky relationship,even though
Although Holden thinks his self-imposed alienation is helpful, he is wrong. It causes him to be an uncomfortable, unconnected person; he constantly reflects on how lonesome he feels. Holden is uptight on the topic of sex. He admits “sex is something I really don’t understand too hot” and that he is a virgin. He believes that if you don’t not having genuine, loving feelings towards a girl, you shouldn’t have sex with her.
And by masking his identity, he makes Dimmesdale wonder why he would want to do this to him. So Roger Chillingworth is at more at fault because of all the things that he made Dimmesdale go through; and also because he does not feel any remorse for his
The negative attitude towards Mr. Collins is due to his obvious insensibility and his serious obligations to Lady Catherine. She hates Mr. Darcy too, for several reasons like his extreme pride and breaking up the unity between her sister and Mr. Bingley. But both the gentlemen, unaware of her mindset, expect that Elizabeth would readily accept the offers. Furthermore, both the gentlemen possess a high account of their social back ground and have a feeling that Elizabeth is much inferior in her status. For instance, Mr. Collins says recovering Lady Catherine’s words, “Let her be an active…..not brought up high” justifying his choice.
He says that ‘till all graces be in one woman, one woman shall not be in my grace,’ which the audience may perceive as Benedick being very particular about his choice of women. ‘Her hair shall be of what colour it please God’ suggesting that Benedick does not want to have anything to do with loving a woman, and therefore influencing her decisions. This could also be interpreted as Benedick being very indignant because he has been hurt by love before and there for is quite vulnerable in the sense he does not want to let his guard down. The audience perceive his outlook as slightly weary and nervous to fall into love again, and he
“I am!”(Bradbury24). This means that Clarisse already knows that Montag doesn’t love anyone, and that is something that Montag doesn’t want to accept because he tries to conjure a face that shows he is in love but he fails. This matter because Clarisse opens Montag’s eyes and suggests that he is wrong he doesn’t love anyone. It shows that there is conflict within Montag because he wants to love Mildred but he doesn’t feel anything for her. Montag starts to realize that love is something that must be felt not just said.
He knows that she is starving for true love and uses that to his advantage. Ultimately, Connie does not better her life by running away. She is only tricked into leaving with Arnold who only tells her what she wants to hear. Although we do not know exactly what occurs,
Even after Demetrius declared that he hated Helena and that she made him sick, she still did not realize that she was being mistreated. Helena still praised Demetrius by saying “And I am sick, when I look not on you.” (2.1.214) Helena also did not have confidence in herself. For example, as Lysander confessed his love for her, she did not believe him. Helena thought that Hermia and Lysander were mocking her because she could never be as beautiful as Hermia. Helena seems to be a woman who would do anything for a man’s approval; in the end though not even Lysander’s love brought out Helena’s
No one wants to be the “sissy” who decides to cut the trip short. Had any women been around with the men, the chances that anyone would put their hook in the water would have been presumably slimmer. Indeed, when Stuart realizes the extent of Claire’s outrage he tells her, “I won’t have you passing judgment on me. Not you” (70). This statement suggests Stuart is used to having others pass judgment on him, namely other men, but will not allow his wife, or perhaps any woman, the same luxury; it could also suggest that his wife’s judgment counts little, or less than that of the
