Jane longs "to rush down the torrent of his will into the gulf of his e... ... middle of paper ... ...e returns at last to her lover. At this point it seems that the tension between reason and passion should have been resolved. Jane and Rochester end up living in perfect agreement, their happiness is complete. Instead of fire and ice, we get warm slush. Although most see Jane as impassioned, we see her strive to meet a balance with passion and reason.
Living this way put both her and her family in difficult positions. Jane was mistreated by Mr. Bingly, and Elizabeth is ensured that Mr. Darcy is at fault. She doesn’t doubt the rumor for a second; for one, she is thoroughly prejudice against Mr. Darcy, and Mr. Wickham is utterly “trustworthy”. According to Mr. Wickham, “if his own vanity, however, did not mislead him, he was the cause, his pride and caprice were the cause, of all that Jane had suffered, and still continued to suffer. He had ruined for a while every hope of happiness for the most affectionate, generous heart in the world; and no one could say how lasting an evil he might have inflicted” (159).
In fact, Mr. Rochester plays with Jane’s emotions and even renders her “love him without looking at me [her]” (203). Mr. Rochester has total control over Jane’s feelings and her knowledge about himself. As his fervent love for Jane intensifies, Mr. Rochester forsakes deception at the cost of realizing that he can no longer be Jane’s idol; only then can he realize Jane’s independence and God’s more powerful will. From the moment Mr. Rochester meets Jane Eyre, his governess, he exudes suspicion. He does not formally introduce himself, and instead, presses Jane about this ‘Mr.
Continuing to berate others for phoniness, Holden cannot recognize the same sense of vapidity within himself. For example, he claims to be both illiterate and an avid reader, and when identifying his favorite authors he cannot identify any particular reason why he likes those authors' works. A reoccurring theme in the story is how Holden thinks everyone he comes into contact with is a phony, but yet throughout the novel it seems that the phoniest person is Holden. These two sides are contradicting each other . For instance, he says that he hates Ackley and yet when he needs a place to stay after his fight with Stadlater he turns to Ackley for a place to stay.
It is an immature response, but the only one she knows, and it serves for her dual purpose of her hurt and revenge. The transformation that she undergoes near the end of the play is not one of character, but one of attitude. She alters dramatically from the bitter accursed shrew to the obedient and happy wife when she discover that her husband loves her enough to attempt to change her for her own good, as well for his. The other main character is Pretruchio her husband. On the surface he appears to be a rough, noisy, and insensitive, one who cares nothing for Katherine's feelings so long as she has money.
She is intelligent and precocious, preferring the make believe world of books to the harsh and often unsympathetic world of reality. She is also perceptive; knowing that the Reeds dislike her, yet not being quite sure why it should be so.She feels her social position as an outcast very keenly; ironically being unable, because of her breeding to form an attachment with Bessie. She is occasionally very angry, as when she lashes out at John Reed, and when she rounds on Mrs Reed after the Red Room incident. She is also afraid and insecure, but tries very hard not to let anyone see this side of her character. it is only at times of great stress that she gives way to fear (Red Room), but note that usually she has, even at the early age of ten, great self-control for most of the time.
Something to work for, or else life becomes boring as Daisy points out many times in the novel. When both men she loves are threatening each other and fighting for her fondness she’s realized what she’s done wrong. She’s fallen into the same trap as Myrtle, being stuck between two men, but she still has feelings for Tom.“I saw them in Santa Barbara when they came back and I thought I’d never seen a girl so mad about her husband. If he left the room for a minute she’d look around uneasily and say ‘Where’s Tom gone?’” (Fitzgerald 83). Gatsby tries to convince Daisy that she loves him and only him, yet Daisy actually loves them both.
The first was a page so heavenly sweet--so deadly sad--that to read one line of it would dissolve my courage and break down my energy (p. 323). Here we see Jane as romantic, moral, passionate, vulnerable and highly principled. My past grinds at my guts, but I realize now that I couldn't have done otherwise taking into account my romantic and moral inclinations, my passions, my vulnerability and high principles. Jane was tormented by her choices for the same reasons. Jacques Brel said, "Perhaps we feel too much and maybe that's the crime, perhaps we pray too much and there isn't any shrine..." But that's cynical, and defensive and incurable romantics like Jane and me would argue vehemently with Mr. Brel's lyric.
You don’t look sad bow, he thought. And he wondered if sShe understood what she was reading, and exaggerated her ignorance my her simplicity, for he liked to think that she was not clever, not book-learned at all. Probably not, he thought (Woolf 121).” This truly shows how skewed Mr. Ramsay’s readings are of other people due to his own crippling insecurities. While Mrs. Ramsay continues daily to try to share an emotional bond with her husband, Mr. Ramsay just thinks derogatorily of her. This shows the root of their marital problems.
These loses she suffered behind "her ancient facility for silence" (James 216). Catherine lived her life trying to please others in a bid for love and approval, and ended up without love from anyone or the hope of acquiring it, which made her a tragic figure. Others might consider having to live with Aunt Penniman ad infinitum to be a tragedy. Aunt Penniman did, however, offer some moments of comic relief with her "silly love of intrigue" (Gard 89) and her romantic flights of fancy. Who could not be amused by Aunt Penniman describing Morris Townsend as an "imperious" man "of great force of character," and saying to herself , "That's the sort of husband I should have had!"
