Conclusion Marriage is the main subject in the novel, as well as for people of this period. The maybe most important condition for a happy marriage is money besides love family relations. The situation of the women in the novel does not allow them any kind of deviant acting since a happy marriage is the only goal for them. Though this is the general atmosphere in the novel, I would like to end my essay with the words of Mr. Bennet to his daughter Elizabeth on her accepting Mr. Darcy's proposal, which stand like an anti-thesis of the otherwise general view of the perfect marriage: "He is rich, to be sure, and you may have more fine clothes and fine carriages than Jane. But will they make you happy?"
By embracing money and refusing love, Mrs. Hammond denies her soul the greatest treasure on Earth. Lucy Hammond, "the very counterpart of her mother, both in person and mind" (6), also loves to emphasize the importance of being comforted by material pleasures and being socially accepted in the wealthy class. She reveals her shallowness when considering who to marry: her only concern is his financial stature. Walsingham attracts Lucy with his impeccable social graces and costumes and, most of all, his wealth. Likewise, Walsingham does not marry Lucy because he appreciates her intellect or creativity: his main concern is her... ... middle of paper ... ... is based on money.
Mr. Reed, before he died, made his wife promise to keep Jane after he died. Mrs. Reed treated Jane very poorly and sent her to a boarding school for orphan. After becoming a teacher, Jane leaves the orphan school and works for Mr. Rochester who’s “adopted” daughter needs a teacher. Mr. Rochester and Jane fell in love and were going to get married until Jane finds out he is already married. Jane leaves and meets some of her family she had not known existed, and before leaving for India, after inheriting a huge some from her now dead uncle John Eyre, goes back to see Mr. Rochester.
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.
However, near the end of the play she learns to love and respect Petruchio. It is evident that she honors Petruchio as her husband through her drastic change in attitude towards her family and friends. Before Katherine was married to Petruchio she was stubborn and resentful of her entire family. She believed that her father, Baptista, did not care for her as much as he did for her fairer sister, Bianca. She did not want to hear anybody’s opinions or advice, and she felt as if no one would ever want to marry her.
This explains that it was not a lover but more like a selfish deal because she did not want her uncle to die if she rejects Troilus and not become his lover. She could have rejected him but instead from this fear, it moves her to th... ... middle of paper ... ... for example Troilus. Troilus chose a wrong girl to love since he did not mean anything to her at least she could have done something else except for breaking his heart. In the end the narrator briefly recounts Troilus's death in battle and his ascent to the eighth sphere, draws a moral about the transience of earthly joys. In distinction Criseyde loses what she once considered most important, her name and reputation, but she adapts herself practically to whatever circumstances befall her.
This is shown when she says "You will not be fit to be seen when you get there" when Elizabeth suggests going by foot to see Jane. She wants her daughters to marry well which will make their family look better. She is also happy about Lydia and Wickham's marriage, even though they did wrong by eloping together, and everyone knew they weren't really in love. Her attitude towards her ... ... middle of paper ... ...kham?s debts, lots of people worry about it and Mrs Bennet complains about her ?nerves?. It makes people think badly of the family and shames them.
Nora thought that the only thing she was missing to be the happiest person on earth was money, and all her problems were going to disappear. Since her husband was going to start a new job she believed that soon her dream was going to come true. All Nora wanted was to have a good life with her family, but what she did not know was that her secret was going to destroy her marriage with Torvald. In act one we see the way Nora behaves and the way Torvald treat Nora. In front of her husband Nora seams submissive and she also acts childish.
She recognized this as nothing beyond the normality, and accepts it because that is what her society deems standard. When commenting that there must be something queer about a house so large and beautiful, yet rented to them at such a reasonable price, she continued “John laughs at me, of course, but one expects that in a marriage” (1). John continually tells her that her illness is psychological, and encourages her to try and get more fresh air, for her own efforts will be the best for a quicker recovery. However, on the one occasion she asks him for permission to visit her Cousin Henry and Julia, he denies her so, leaving her in tears and telling her she could not handle such a trip. ... ... middle of paper ... ... the liberation of women everywhere.
She also admits that Mohan is solely responsible for her writing career. Mohan had obviously expected something from her as his wife and she had failed him. And now she decides that she will “erase the silence between us” (TLS 192) because silence can ever make one’s marriage meaningful. In this silence is an image of alienation and obscurity of Jaya’s existence. When she erases the silence, she evolves and turns into a confident mother and wife for silence played a role but, it is of a woman owns making.
