His feelings of abandonment create a boiling hatre... ... middle of paper ... ...es still care about them both. Hamlet understands that Ophelia was just doing as she was told, and he struggles with himself over his feelings. When he learns that she has died, he feels guilt and acknowledges that "I loved Ophelia. Forty thousand brothers / Could not with all their quantity of love / Make up my sum" (Hamlet, IV, i, 285-287). Hamlet forgives Gertrude of her deeds too, for after Claudius poisons her, Hamlet takes revenge upon him in the name of both his father and his mother, "Then, venom, to thy / work... // Drink off this potion.
The chorus tries to console Medea and tell her not to do such horrid things to other people particularly her children. Medea ignores their request and is stuck with the decision of whether or not to kill her children. She loves them and does not want to but she knows she must kill them to get back at her husband who had wronged her though she had done so much for him. She goes through with the act of killing Jason's new bride - Medea's children bring her a poisoned gown, which also ends up killing the King of Corinth. - And then faces the tough act of murdering her own children who she loves dearly.
Similarly she hates Othello for "laying murders on [Iago's] neck", but as events transpire Emilia realizes that Othello's claims of Desdemona's alleged infidelity all stemmed from Iago. Thus, Iago indirectly lead to the death of her beloved friend, and she, unknowingly, aided Iago on his conquest. Once Emilia can acknowledge this fact, she can bring herself above Iago and stand up to him to prove her loyalty to Desdemona. This loyalty is exaggerated in her death through her singing the song "Willow Willow" that Desdemona was familiar with. Instead of begging for an explanation from her husband, she praises Desdemona even during her own death and this can be viewed as an ultimate declaration of loyalty.
Upon learning that she had sent her daughter to her death due to the deceit of her husband, Clytemnestra was grieved and enraged beyond measure and gave her heart over to the avengement of her daughter. The very strong reaction Clytemnest... ... middle of paper ... ...er psychological reasons for the murder are the point and not her emotional state. Considering this, both Agamemnon and Electra reach similar conclusions concerning Clytemnestra's situation. She has ample grounds for hating her husband but no-one holds her justified in killing him in either play, "your words are just; yet in your 'justice' there remains something repellent." Electra disposes of her mother's defence in detail and leaves the audience feeling that Clytemnestra's murder of her husband really was not warranted.
The end-stopped lines are appropriate because they slow the speech and emphasize the dullness of one who feels pain and sorrow at the loss of a loved one. In addition, the ornate verse emphasizes the drama of her speech and the powerful emotion she exudes. The language upholds the sanctity of the King and recalls an elegy or psalm that w... ... middle of paper ... ... She asks that his wife be "more miserable by the death of him / Than I am made by my young lord and thee" (1:2:27-28). The fact that she marries Richard suggests that her curse is somewhat false. Perhaps she intentionally imposes a lenient punishment for his wife, one that she has already suffered, knowing that she might become his wife.
We often say there is no love other than mothers love but the character of Duchess conflict that. Duchess of York is very vague character, confused in way and mother of monstrous. She seems very patient with Richard III at the being of the play; nonetheless explore her hatred at the end of the play. She is a widowed mother, of Clarence, King Edward IV and Richard III. Duchess of York has very bad relationship with her son due to his erroneous action during the play, Richard has committed crimes, and killed the closest people to him and others just to achieve kingdom and be next in the throne.
His ideas about her being a good pure Queen are proved false as she turns her back on her husband and marries his brother. This bothers Hamlet before he discovers his father was murdered. “Thou turn’st mine eyes into my very soul, And there I see such black and grained spots, As will not leave their tinct” (79-81) Gertrude admits that incest with her husband’s brother has blackened her soul and will forever haunt her existence. Her son’s words have struck her and she realizes what a horrible sin she has committed. However, it seems she says this to appease Hamlet as though her future actions do not show that she is remorseful.
This sad articulation of her love for him is quite powerful. She understands her actions, and also shows signs of paranoia. She claims, on page 567, that “Tristram used to sleep with King Mark’s wife, and the king murdered him for it.” Guenever is thoughtful of what’s to come, for both her AND her partner. It is obvious that she knew she could not always “have her cake and eat it too.” As a woman, suffering through the psychological battle of “what is right”, Guenever had an awareness of her love and it’s outcome. A few characters in The Once and Future King knew about Guenever’s secret and wanted to exploit her and take care of personal issues, while others were completely oblivious to the affair.
In Euripides’ version, Medea appears to Jason already in her dragon pulled chariot. Her murderous deeds already done, she arrives with her children’s corpses at her feet. Horace’s advice of Ars Poetica was considered in Euripides’ version, as Medea has already taken her children’s lives when she comes to Jason. Though Jason tries to reason a last time with Medea, she will not have it, and even goes as far as to blame Jason for their children’s deaths saying, “JASON-O my children, how vile a mother ye have found! MEDEA-My sons, your father's feeble lust has been your ruin!
The story shows the forbidden pleasure every woman, especially in the 1800s, has: the pleasure of her husband dying. The main character, Louise, shows overwhelming joy at the thought of her husband being gone hinting that all marriages are sexually and emotionally oppressive. That marriage is a binding union that limits one’s personal freedom, even if the husband is kind. Louise can not name a specific way that her husband oppresses her, rather that the idea of marriage alone is what oppresses her. Additionally, Louise’s heart condition shows her ambivalence towards her marriage.
