In her first soliloquy Lady Macbeth reveals her desire t... ... middle of paper ... ...art to the pensive audience. Lady Macbeth’s soliloquies portrayed her as a vile woman tormented by a guilty conscience, and her soliloquies also communicated important information about her to the audience; had all the characters been privy to this information they would have regarded Lady Macbeth very differently. The mind births the contract between corruption and the soul. In reality, we never get to hear anyone’s soliloquies. The imagination hides the deceptive woes and moral bankruptcy of every individual.
‘I am destroying the happiness of my family. And why? … to free myself from the deceit which was consuming and killing me.’ Bertrande’s strong desire to free herself from the cunning of Arnaud du Tilh inevitably brought considerations of the Mesnie and her children to mind. ‘Her affection for her kindred rose about her in a wall implacable as stone’ as she was ‘condemned to solitude’ knowing the hurt her accusations against Arnaud inflicted upon the mesnie. Furthermore, the drawn out process of the trial brought ‘heart-breaking uncertainty,’ with Lewis clearly indicating through this use of language Bertrande’s awareness of the affect of her actions upon others.
When Proctor tells Abigail that the relationship can no longer continue, the girl becomes angry and sorrowful (1098). In order to prove Abigail?s sinfulness and to discredit her in front of the court, Proctor proclaims that he had an affair with this evil child. The outraged court officials summon Elizabeth Proctor to find the truth. When asked about her husband, Elizabeth?s soul is twisted, for reporting the truth could destroy her husband?s reputation, but lying means breaking her solemn oath to God. Because she is selfless, Elizabeth chooses to lie and save her husband, but perhaps condemn herself to hell for such a sin.

Duffy uses paralinguistic to explain the incident ‘’told me to fuck off’’ An accident leads to chaos and embarrassment for the mother, a male telling a female off shows how dominant the male are in society.’’ My mother mute shame’’ this also indicates the lack of initiative, Duffy uses sensory language and juxtaposition at the end of the stanza ’the taste of soap’’ to show the extent of the astounding sense of embarrassment which epitomizes the way women were wrapped up in their own world. Both poets share the idea that women are unrealistic but due to their gender it’s been showed in a different understanding, In Litany Duffy portrays women as being stereotyped and controlled by a male dominated society which leads them to be untrue and in contrast in Large Cool Store Larkin portrays women as being deluded because they are naturally unreal and not normal.
Hesiod writes of how women and all of their downfalls came to be in the myth of Pandora and her infamous box. Women were not a well-intended gift for those already inhabiting Earth, primarily towards men. Women were given as a underhanded attempt at revenge by the Gods as told in the poem in the words of, “You really delighted in swindling me by stealing the fire, but soon you will find it a curse to yourself and to men yet to be. I shall give them a present to compensate for the fire. May they be merry at heart, forever embracing this horror” (114).
Once Mr. Darcy confesses his misjudgements of Jane and the truth in firing Mr. Wickham, Elizabeth “[grows] absolutely ashamed of herselfㅡOf neither Darcy nor Wickham could she think, without feeling that she had been blind, partial, prejudiced, absurd” (382). Jane Austen stresses“ashamed” which reveals Elizabeth’s resentment in her judgemental actions. Unable to see through Mr. Darcy’s pride, Elizabeth becomes shielded by her assumptions from Mr. Darcy’s genuine personality; however, once Lizzy’s alters her perception, she discovers her romantic feelings towards him. Elizabeth comprehends her error in judgement and explains to Mr. Darcy “how gradually all her former prejudices had been removed” (670). By using the past tense, Jane Austen illustrates the transformation in her preconceptions of Mr. Darcy.
However, the princess is oblivious to Medea’s plot; she will accept the gift for its beauty then meet an unexpected, agonized death. The image of pain and agony elicits our sympathy as well. Medea presents her most perverse speech when she explains how she will kill her own children then flee Corinth. Alone, these acts provoke pure disgust, but Euripides has developed Medea’s character as a coercive force; we still sympathize with her for her plight, yet we also hate her for her decisions. The women of Corinth try to persuade her away from this morbid choice, but their arguments are ineffective.
The outcome is disheartening; Leucothoe is buried alive, Phoebus is grief-stricken, and Clytie still doesn't get the man she wanted. Everyone loses. "And as for Clytie, / Love might have been a reason for her sorrow, / And sorrow for telling tales. . .
