Steinbeck then created the characters based on the people he met. In this novel John Steinbeck presents Curley out to be a slimy, nasty and a horrible bully due to his actions and the way he treats people. He has no respect for anyone but himself, especially women. He treats his wife llike dirt and often objectifies her as it is said in the novel he wear's a "glove fulla vaseline". He does this to keep his hand soft for his wife who he is using as a sexual object which is rather humulating for her.
According to Brown, “The dramatist depicts incidents which arouse pity and fear for the protagonist [Antigone], then during the course of the action, he resolves the major conflicts, bringing the plot to a logic and foreseeable conclusion (Brown, para 5). The tragic hero in Antigone is Creon. Tragic heroes are not all good and not all bad. Creon suffers a great deal due to his tragic flaw and destructive pride.

Though Proctor is physically strong, it is soon apparent that his weakness comes from his relationship with Abigail. Not only did he commit adultery, which was and still is seen as immoral in a very religious community, but he also took advantage of a servant in his employ and abused the trust given him as an employer as well as the trust of his wife. This adulterous event is a pivotal issue in Proctor’s attitude towards
Especially when you’re working with me. You know what I’m saying? Mim: Well, if that’s the case Jim is a jerk” (Anderson 1355).

Even though he loves Edna and his sons, I don’t think he is considered as a good husband since he knows very few about Edna’s true feeling. I think this because he spends slight time with them, and leaves the family behind and goes out saying that he is always busy and has to go away for business or spends more time with his friends. As my point of view, I think it is not fair for a guy to treat a wife or his family like this and it seems like he is just a selfish person to me. Since marriage during that time of period was very harsh for women I think she was able to survive by meeting people. The time period where Edna was living was in a very strict condition for the women, especially for house wives.

In a way, he was forced to marry this woman who evidently gave him a free pass to check out what he was missing. It is also revealed that Gurhov finds it difficult to socialize with the men in society, but (insert page 205 #3).
According to Friedman’s theory, the mutual nurturance is based on the relationship between the husband and wife (2003, p. 381). Ms. H being a single mother lacks the essential component of a husband to complete the model. This deficit may be contributory to the family lacking in her relationship. The children were respectful to one another and appeared to care but they lacked the nurturing quality. Their interactions were brief and to the point without any type of friendly “play” observed between the two.
While these kind actions with his nearby residents are honorable and righteous, these actions are not indicative of an exceptional individual, but merely a individual. Rip Van Winkle possessed characteristics of a normal person. He liked to drink, was lazy, and rather than focusing on his own home, and personal home life, he would avoid interaction. While reading the essay, there were some references to Rip Van Winkle's wife being portrayed as a constant nag because he did not contribute around the household. Some might argue that It is because of his wife's berating, that Rip was not proactive in contributing in house work.
This story begins almost on the same note where it ended, that is with Deolat, the village ‘stud’ being at the focal point. When alive, he was the desire of many women but posed as a threat to the men, which caused him to loved by some and hated by others but, he didn’t seem to care too much. This story focuses on Dolly who has become victim to Deolat’s invisible sting, and as her husband Ram becomes aware of it his wife’s attraction to the stud, he becomes deeply disturbed and behaves strangely. One of his friends then confirms his suspicions when he informs Ram that he personally witnessed the physical closeness being shared between Dolly and Deolat. Giving his wife whom he apparently deeply loves the benefit of the doubt, Ram directly asks his wife Dolly about her acquaintance with Deolat and his periodic visits to their home.
