In both poems our sympathies are with the women. We sympathise with the women in “The seduction” because she becomes pregnant and truly regrets her actions “So she cried that she had missed all the innocence around her.” In “THCM” our sympathy is also with the woman as she is being pressurised into to having sex even though she might not want to. The men in both poems are similar in one way as they are both seducing the woman in the hope that she will sleep with them. However they both act very different. The man in “THCM” is more romantic as he takes the time to admire and appreciate the woman “An hundred years should go to praise Thine eyes, and on thy forehead gaze.” Whereas in “The seduction” He doe... ... middle of paper ... ...of nicotine.” I think this definitely comes across during the poems, and is a clear difference.
When Charlie was younger, his Aunt Helen molested him. That had a negative impact on Charlie’s life, considering he kept it a secret from everyone. He always found himself blaming for everything, which caused him to get depressed. Charlie’s depressive actions indicated that the event in which he was molested by his aunt show that child abuse has such a negative affect on the child that will last a lifetime. An online critic, Barbara Nicolosi, believes that child abuse has an affect by stating, “it is revealed that Charlie’s social dysfunction is actually rooted in his experience of child sexual abuse at the hands of a beloved aunt”.
The Wife of Bath explains that wife is no victim; rather, she is a perpetrator of the kind of marriages she has had. She is an active agent in her decisions to marry and use sex to propagate wealth. Her passion of sex makes us understand she endured sex with her first three husbands because they were old. Moments in The Wife of Bath’s Prologue suggest that while the Wife does not marry for love, she is unhappy in her marriages. The lack of love, however, does not mean that she is unsatisfied with her choices to be with those men.
What Nietzsche tried to create with his idea of the superman was human perfection, but what it actually created was fuel for evil in the world. Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) developed his idea of the superman after many years of studying and teaching philosophy. It was a culmination of many ideals that Nietzsche felt were the ideals a person should follow to lead a perfect life. The superman is essentially his own society, determining his own values, finding his own happiness, and finding joy in being the one to control all of this himself. He doesn’t believe in a God or a soul or an afterlife, and therefore makes the most out of his life since he has no one else’s morals to follow.
He went on to ask for more, saying how sexy he found Diane and went on to graphically describe how he wanted to lick her pussy, suck her big tits, etc. Diane was totally shocked at the letter and the realization that she had been sending her nude pictures to an old man so he could jack off. Once the shock wore off she liked the idea of him admiring her body, but it wasn’t her fantasy. That was the last letter she ever sent to ‘Susan’ aka Paul. Part (2) After this episode you would have thought we would have learned our lesson, but the thoughts of a threesome was still there.
She is thought of as nothing but a sexual object, and is taken advantage of over and over. She is stepped on repeatedly by her stepfather and is threatened not to say anything. “You better not never tell nobody but God. It’s kill your mammy” (Walker 1). She is silenced not to tell anyone about her explicit rapes because she knows it would kill her mother, and therefore only expresses her hardship to God.
This is very degrading to her husbands; she did not care about them at all and is more then willing to stand up in front of a crowd and degrade them. "How pitously a-night I made hem swinke!" Her degradation of her husbands continues as she goes on to tell her audience how easily she controlled them by forcing them to give her their worldly possessions, "And sith they hadde me yeven al hir lond." The wife then goes on to tell about how she used to cheat on her husbands and get away with it if anyone told by convincing them that the person who told them was crazy by getting her friends to convince them she didn't. "And take witnesse of hir owene maide."
To His Coy Mistress was written at about 1621 to 1678, by Andrew Marvell. This poem is written more like a speech. A man is talking to a woman, saying how much he wants to have sex with her. He keeps talking about what little time they have got and what will happen if they don’t have sex. He describes what they could do if they had more time – “We would sit down, and think which way To walk, and pass our love’s long day.” In the poem, The Beggar Woman, the ‘gentleman’s attitude to the woman is that he only wants to have sex and then just leave her.
The mother in Tillie Olsen’s story, “I Stand Here Ironing” gives insight into the upbringing of her first child. We see she is guilty of neglect towards Emily and is distressed due to poor decisions that she had made rearing her daughter. The mother reflects on the past and thinks that her actions and “lack of” might have affected Emily. She is so engulfed in “what ifs” and “how could I’s” that she is practically beating herself mentally. Poor Emily received little attention when attention was needed, allowing us to condemn the mother for her actions.
One type of abuse was the abuse directed to Jane by the Reed family. Jane’s’ aunt makes her life a misery. Jane is starved of love and affection. Mrs Reed finds fault with Jane because she wasn’t a content child. Jane says, “ She really must exclude me from privileges intended only for contented, happy little children.” Mrs Reed gives an unbelievable amount of cruel treatment to Jane; for example, Mrs Reed has a new set of rules exclusively for Jane.
