Dialogue then begins from Elizabeth to Mr Darcy. Dialogue is used to reveal the character of the speaker and it also adds drama to the story. Not only are the words spoken important, it is also significant how the words are said. We already know that Elizabeth is angry, and are therefore not surprised that she rejects his offer of marriage. In this paragraph, Elizabeth explains to Mr Darcy that the way in which he had proposed to her had spared her the concern she might have had in refusing him.
Therefore, when he is struck with Cordelia’s answer of “Nothing, my lord” (1.1.89), he acts impulsively by disowning and banish... ... middle of paper ... ...pray you now forget and forgive, I am old and foolish” (4.7.83-84). This represents that Lear is trying to show Cordelia that he knows his actions were rash, which shows that he is regaining his moral sanity. He finally feels remorseful of his actions and wants to redeem himself. Furthermore, when Cordelia is captured and hung, Lear feels that he missed out on a chance to fix what he had done to Cordelia. When checking to see if she is alive, Lear says: “If it be so, it is a chance which does redeem all sorrows that ever have I felt” (5.3.265-267).
The dialogue of their interactions and the irony of their situations add humor as well as reinforce the idiocy presented by the very first line of Pride and Prejudice, "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife" (Austen 3). Mrs. Bennet?s actions as a mother are not unjustified. Because the Bennet estate was entailed, the marriage of her daughters was necessary for their secured wellbeing. In Chapter 20 Elizabeth refuses Mr. Collins marriage proposal. Her mother, who views the match as advantageous, is outraged and expresses her grief to Mr. Bennet, ?Nobody can tell what I suffer!
Jane Austen is a master of the delicate romance. She writes of the repressed feelings of her heroines, the discomfort and obstacles of their situation, the lack of self-awareness and a slow progression to a romantic and happy ending. The honest and heart strong Marianne Dashwood, in Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility goes entirely against the mold of more conventional Austen heroines, such as Elinor Dashwood or Anne Elliott. Marianne is scrutinized for her selfishness, lack of propriety, and immaturity, but these accusations glance merely at the surface. Upon deeper analysis of Marianne’s character, she is revealed to be a modern young woman with a strict yet evolving code, which guides her actions through sensibility, intellect and independence of spirit.
Once he is not recognized, he is belittled and not only sees the ridiculousness of his actions, but also his inefficiency in general; furthermore, through the ordeal he has only seen his wife’s proficiency in her ability to carry on with out him (Kelsey 20). Although he should lose faith in himself as an effective human, husband, and master the absurdity of Hawthorne’s tale lies in the anomaly of Wakefield’s return home as if having been gone no longer than the week he intended to stay away. However, because Hawthorne judged not the actor but the actions, we still rally in the wonderment of knowing "each for himself, that none of us would perpetrate such a folly, yet feel as if some other might" (Hawthorne 76).
The roundtable ignorantly turns Gawain’s symbol of shame and sin into a memento of pride and respect. Contrasts are evident throughout this satire and allow the reader to clearly distinguish from appearance and reality. The illusions of characters are shattered throughout the course of this satire. The old lady of the castle provided the illusion of frailty but was in reality was in control of Gawain’s entire challenge. The young woman gave off the impression of an innocent mistress but in reality was attempting to derail him from fulfilling his wagers.
Lockwood strikes me as a character who is much astonished by his own intelligence, he dilutes his account of the Heights with Latinate words and pompous expressions, ‘relaxed a little in the laconic style of chipping off his pronouns and auxiliary verbs’. Either this is an early indication of his arrogance, later confirmed by his unlikely fear that Catherine would regret a union with Hareton on observing how ‘tolerably attractive’ he was or possibly the ‘primitive’ nature of the Heights provokes him to use language that he associates with civilised society in order to feel comfortable in an evidently uneasy situation. If this be the case Bronte mocks the established politeness of introduction showing his language to be simply a façade disguising his unsettled emotions. This language helps him to preserve his detached demeanour as only once is the reader given an insight to his insecure character. He relates an amusing incident in which a ‘goddess’ he professed to be in love with hinted at a reciprocation of feeling that unfortunately caused him to flee rabbit-like, rapidly lessening the warmth of his ‘glances’.
The character of Briony would rather a tidy fiction then an unorganized reality. That as a result leads to guilt and regret. Wood, in his analysis demonstrates how McEwan through Briony demonstrates the separation of characters in order to show a reader how to inhabit the mind of characters. Upon reading the novel there is a temptation to condemn Briony for her childish wrong doings. Wood analysis this in saying, “that this moving out of ourselves into realms beyond our daily experience might be a moral and sympathetic education of its own kind…”(Wood, 102).
Blanche does not care if this magic is factual or not. The importance of magic to Blanche is that she has the choice to choose fantasy which allows her to believe in and hope for something better than harsh world. She is aware of that, making the world as attractive as sh... ... middle of paper ... ...es and thinks that her hopes will not be destroyed. Thirdly, Blanche thinks that strangers are the ones who will rescue her; instead they want her for sex. Fourthly, Blanche believes that the ones who love her are trying to imprison her and make her work like a maid imprisoned by them.
… Miss Daisy Miller looked extremely innocent.” (334). Winterbourne seems puzzled as he wonders if this flirtatiousness is purely a trait of her innocence, or if she is a stereotypical young flirt, who he’s just not famili... ... middle of paper ... .... In this case, it is Daisy Miller, and her lack of innocence. One can infer easily that Daisy loved Winterbourne, but because of her lack of purity, she tried playing games with him. Like Albert Ellis said about love, she persistently plays games with Winterbourne, and it ultimately leads to her death.
