He must marry the young Catherine due to his father’s manipulation (3). Linton is not able to choose a lot of things for himself. Finally, although his father is now there for him, Linton has no good sense of guidance; just like his father. This leads Linton to not only begin to hate the people that he loves, but this also leads him to hate himself. He knows his affectionate mother would not want him to be so peevish and cruel toward people.
Cordelia’s defiance and refusal to give her father what he wants creates tension and disrupts the overall order of things. When going into detail about her reasoning behind her choice, she makes the relationship between her and her father sound like equal trade rather than a loving tie. Cordelia’s phrasing could be one of two things: her lack of “eloquent rhetoric” making her statement sound harsher than intended, or her honest to God feelings on the matter. Cordelia, as if rubbing salt in Lear’s wounds, also brings up how her husbands would share half of her love once she married. Having had enough, Lear banishes his own daughter and gives her away to the King of France.
Innogen and Miranda question their self-acceptance when they have little control over their life. Both women demonstrate the lack of trust with their actions because their father dictates their behaviour. Initially, Cymbeline and Prospero pin point the wrongdoings of their daughter’s choice in men; Innogen and Miranda, respectively rebel against their actions. In other words, Innogen reflects on her problems to build self-control. Similarly, Miranda develops self-control when she trusts herself to make the right choices without her father’s influence.
Men would never want a woman who dared to undermine her husband. As Henry VIII said to his w... ... middle of paper ... .... Whilst Petrucio think she's tamed she's not she has just learnt to find a compromise after all its what she actually wants. Kate has been badly behaved and angry simply because no one cared enough for her. Kate shows Petrucio in her speech and all her family just ho he is. People who have written it off as a piece of dramatic irony or her giving up were simply wrong and underestimating Kate's intelligence and character.
She was particularly unenthused with her husband after it is revealed that “he borrowed somebody’s best suit to get married” without telling her. (35) She expresses her marriage as regretful, which illustrates her ambition to strive for better, being Tom. Essentially it illustrates that she would rather be treated with little respect to achieve status, rather than to be treated with respect without status. Myrtle not only exudes her ambition through her pompous attitude, but also in the manner in which she carries herself. She is a young woman in her “middle thirties, and faintly stout, but (carries) her surplus flesh sensuously,” and although she is not attributed with beauty she is somewhat charismatic.
If she went to pieces it’s because there was a rotten streak in her. She was naturally unbalanced; even her love for [her husband] was exaggerated. If she’d had character she’d have been able to make something of life (196).” Isabel is expressing since Sophie is acting different than her normal self she is not normal and never really was. Instead of being a friend to Sophie she would rather have nothing to do with her because she feels there is not anything one can do. Isabel does not care about the well beings of her friends’ even if she has known them all her life.
These reasons include her inferior social class and her family obstacles. As a retaliation Elizabeth stuns Darcy by refusing his proposal very harshly stating "I had not known you a month before I felt that you were the last man in the world whom I could ever be prevailed on to marry." This shows the extent of her prejudice against Darcy as she says that even from the beginning she disliked him. She condemns him for his arrogant manner in which he proposed his actions to separate Jane and Bingley and his actions of unfairness on Wickham. He accepts these accusations without apology, even with contempt.
For many characters it is challenging to see through Yanna’s false appearance, but that was not the case for Sol. Sol “saw, a broken life, a frightened woman, a marriage that would bind him-however briefly-to grief” and therefore, regrets, agreeing to marry Yanna (Richler 7). Sol’s consent for marriage to Yanna causes him greater regret as his brother’s and niece’s lives are ruined as a result of this arrangement. Yanna pretends to be a loving mother and wife but truly she is not. Years later, when Ruth finally meets her mother Yanna, she finds out that her mother is also apologetic for the way her false appearance affected her first family.
She does not get to enjoy the freedom which she truly desires. Desperation took over her life which led to her own death. Lastly, in the story of “The Chrysanthemums”, Elisa realizes there is no future in her marriage, which makes her understand her life has become a miserable one. The frustration of this woman caused by her husband soon allows her to recognize no one will ever see her as a valuable and smart person. The absence of attention which men have towards their respective women in the stories mentioned above provoke them to not reach the happiness they wish.
Her inability to show true emotion effects her a lot later in life and is the main reason she is unable to keep a relationship. Hagar’s stubbornness can also be connected to the stone angel monument in the sense that the Angel never moves and is also very set in its ways. The Stone Angel monument was created without eyes. Hagar is also blind in the sense that she is ignorant to the opinions and thoughts of others. The above qualities are shared by Hagar and the Stone angel, and are in essence the reason behind Hagar’s never-ending escape from family and her problems.
