This isolation renders the monster incapable of developing proper relationships with man, leaving the monster “miserable” (144). The monster’s virtues, left unrecognized, succumb to abhorrence for the human race. Likewise, an improper upbringing in impoverished Nelson Place cripples Pinkie. Pinkie’s parents prematurely expose him to sexual intercourse, and in order to escape this horror, Pinkie is willing “to commit any crime” and kills his parents (Greene 156). After these experiences, Pinkie loses the ability to feel emotion.
The Misfit’s lack of psychological help contributes to the decay of his morality because with an unstable mind he is unable to grasp moral values whatsoever. In addition, the Misfit expresses himself strictly through violence. During the conversation between the Grandmother and the Misfit, he states that ‘“[t]hen it’s nothing for you to do but enjoy the few minutes you got left the best way you can—by killing somebody or burning down his house or doing some other meanness to him. No pleasure but meanness.”’ (O’Connor 27). Since the Misfit had to suffer through the cruelty of his punishments, he no longer believes in conventional morals and sees that the only
In the stories “A Rose for Emily” by William Faulkner and “Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin both women suffer through expectations brought on by society and the ideas of marriage. Emily loses her sanity trying to obtain love and live up to the expectations of society. Emily kills the man she loved so that he would never leave, and so that she could maintain her reputation. She was put on a pedestal, and that pedestal would end up being her destruction. Louise is a woman afflicted by heart problems, which could relate her unhappiness.
In Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman and Shakespeare’s Macbeth both protagonists are pushed to their destruction by, as it seems, their wives. Both Willy Loman's and Macbeth’s relationships play very large parts in both plays. Love is blind and one partner is always blinded and naïve, therefore leading to one’s demise. Throughout both plays we see the change in the relationships because of events that occur, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth especially endure drastic changes in their relationship throughout the play, going from loving, to being manipulated into a selfish relationship that revolves around power and success. Linda does not really attempt to save her husband, although she knows very well what is wrong with him and that he will kill himself if she does not do something.
This is the major cause of their deaths. The family feud in the story means that nearly everything that happens in Verona ends in violence. This means that Romeo and Juliet had no chance of a successful marriage if they told their families about their love for one another. They are going against convention and against their families’ wishes. The feud is highly to blame for the deaths of the two lovers as it is responsible for the secret marriage, Romeo’s banishment, and for the Friars scheme.
Once Juliet woke up, she found him lying dead in a pool of his own blood. She was so devastated at the sight and thought that he was gone, so she too stabbed herself. This also gives some proof to the critics that Shakespeare made his women overly dependant on men, and again shows that he expected women to act similar to men. Some critics viewed the women in Shakespeare's plays as shrews. For example in the play The Taming of the Shrews, Kate was viewed as a shrew because she grew up without a mother to guide her through her life as a child to a young adult.
Astell points out that the marriages with money but no love led to the horrific life of a depressed wife and a life of lust for the husband with other woman. William Congreve shows an audience in 1700 during the premier of the play The Way of the World that a poor marriage leads to unfaithful lust outside of the marriage and those strict rules when inheritance and society are concerned led women to marry men they otherwise would not. Also, marriages stay together when they should be separated or never married at all. Astell's ideas are also portrayed in Samuel Pepys's Diary. Pepys constantly cheats on his wife.
The first scene in the play gives a glimpse of the feud between the two families when two Montague's are approached by Tybalt, and other Caplets, and a quarrel begins. The play eventually results in suicide for the two young lovers and shows how love can eventually end in a tragic mess. I believe that Romeo and Juliet's death was needless because it was not themselves to blame for, but the selfishness of their families and other people around them. The hatred, quarrelling and feud between the two families made their life unhappy because they could not lead a happy life, relationship or even be seen in public together. The death of Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy, however has many people to blame.
We often say there is no love other than mothers love but the character of Duchess conflict that. Duchess of York is very vague character, confused in way and mother of monstrous. She seems very patient with Richard III at the being of the play; nonetheless explore her hatred at the end of the play. She is a widowed mother, of Clarence, King Edward IV and Richard III. Duchess of York has very bad relationship with her son due to his erroneous action during the play, Richard has committed crimes, and killed the closest people to him and others just to achieve kingdom and be next in the throne.
Take a look into the life of Blanche Dubois and it will be evident that an insane asylum was the wrong place for her. From the loss of her loved ones and childhood home, to her career as a prostitute, and ending with her rape, there is no denying that Blanche Dubois just needed love and support from her family. Tragic events have a huge effect on a person’s metal state and Blanche Dubois’ life was full of tragedy. She had gone through a painful life at a young age; starting with the unforeseen affair that her husband had with another man and his suicide immediately after it was revealed. Loss is already tough to deal with but suicide the widow is left with feelings of stigma and guilt.
