Are you yet living?” This quote tells us that Benedick and Beatrice hate each other and there is an ongoing battle with each other using words. Pg 17- “I would I could find in my heart, that I had not a hard heart, for truly I love none”. Benedick says that all women love him, except Beatrice, but he loves none. This shows that Benedick is not fond of marrying or anything of the sort.
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
He believed every lady loved him, which shows he is not shy when it comes to sharing his thoughts. However, not all the ladies love him, he just thinks too much of himself. Benedick also assumes that he is too good for anyone and there is no lady good for him, and therefore he cannot have any lady, and says he never will. It also demonstrates that Beatrice and Benedick have a fiery relationship based on the childish bickery. Shakespeare portrays a rude and independent character of Benedick.
Though both, Medea and Clytemnestra are beguilingly corrupt, their schemes are only the result of emotional struggle each face from the loss a loved one. Although, Medea and Cltymnestra are but reacting to their emotional state, each of their reactions were wrong, and not due to "nature or nurture" reactions. The actions Medea and Clymnestra schemed, as their way of rehabilitation, is no different from their husbands who had betrayed them. In fact, both woman are repeating the, if not exact, reasons in the first place they began their plans of manipulation. With these actions, both characters had unknowningly added to their emotional state they had been faced with by their families However, Medea and Clymnestra are both portraying the steriotypical normals of the woman of ancient Greece.
Lastly, they are both confused and mostly completely unaware of their surroundings. Through their deaths, Gertrude and Ophelia highlight the position of women within this tragedy; they are the victims of their male counterparts’ corruption and deceit. Ophelia, however, is more of a victim of her unfortunate death than Gertrude. The ideal woman from Shakespearean times differs greatly from an ideal woman in the twenty-first century. A young woman was expected to be delicate, polite and dependent on the men in their lives.
In the play king Lear, mercy is an insatiable trait which is surrounded by so much hate and malice every time love is given it makes those moments so much more enjoyable. In the begging of the Play King Lear, Cordelia the king’s daughter, is outcast, cheated of her inheritance accused of being a wicked child and one that nature is a shamed of (I,i,215-219). Even though at the beginning of the play king Lear disowns his daughter and she has every right to be unloving to him; when they are reunited King Lear offers to harm himself but Cordelia turns that idea away and forgives him when she asks to take a walk with her father (4,VII,83). People want to see mercy, they want to see those that deserve worse receive compassion and mercy Lear deserved to be turned away but Cordelia showed tenderness to her aging father and
But unlike Jaques, who refuses to participate wholly in life but has much to say about the foolishness of those who surround him, Rosalind gives herself over fully to circumstance. She chastises Silvius for his irrational devotion to Phoebe, and she challenges Orlando’s thoughtless equation of Rosalind with a Platonic ideal, but still she comes undone by her lover’s inconsequential tardiness and faints at the sight of his blood. That Rosalind can play both sides of any field makes her identifiable to nearly everyone, and so, irresistible. Rosalind is a particular favorite among feminist critics, who admire her ability to subvert the limitations that society imposes on her as a woman. With boldness and imagination, she disguises herself as a young man for the majority of the play in order to woo the man she loves and instruct him in how to be a more accomplished, attentive lover—a tutorship that would not be welcome from a woman.
Joe may have been a little rough around the edges with society but he cared for you something you Estella could never do. Although, I do not like this lady you having dreaming over, I know for a fact that it was not her fault but the fault of Estella’s upbringing. Mainly this task had fallen under Miss Havisham and this was a problem from the begging because you see Pip, Miss Havisham brought Estella up to be a woman every man loved, therefore breaking all hearts of the men closest to her. I do not fancy the fact that you will ever end up with Estella but Pip always remember she will NEVER love you back. Sincerely your good friend,
Hamlet not only finds this hard but near impossible due to his inability to act. We see this greatly in the character of Hamlet. ‘Now might I do it pat, now is a-praying; And now I’ll do’t – and so he goes to heaven, And so am I revenged.’ Hamlet mistrusts women in general and treats them as vile and untrustworthy creatures. Ophelia, Hamlet's true love, is doomed in her relationship from the moment Hamlet takes on the task of revenge. She is unknowingly used in the plot against Hamlet by her father and brother who are supposed to protect her but instead they use her and therefore open a way for Hamlets hate and disappointment to direct at her.To understand Hamlets treatment of Ophelia its essential to look at Hamlets hatred towards his mother.
He did not like Isabella but married her to get closer to Thrushcross Grange. He not only deceived Isabella’s love, but he also abused her like how he was abused as a child.
