The angel was certainly not a suitable statue to mark the death of Mrs. Currie as it was uncharacteristic of her. The statue of the angel is a more fitting representation of Hagar’s father Jason Currie and hence suits Hagar because her personality was undoubtedly inherited from her father. The pride inherited from her father causes her much trouble throughout life as it seems to be the main root of her problems. Hagar’s lack of emotion is also consistent with the characteristics of the stone angel. Her inability to show true emotion effects her a lot later in life and is the main reason she is unable to keep a relationship.
If she did communicate to each other their relationship might have been better and they could have improved each other. This is a main cause that their marriage fails. She also prides herself on keeping their sexual part of their marriage secret because society would judge her if Hagar ever said she liked sex with Bram so she never told anyone not even her husband that she liked it. Thirdly, even though Hagar father Jason cut her out of the family she is still proud to be a Currie and come from that high-class society. Hagar is given the Currie pin because she was the most like her father and most likely to succeed.
In fact she never called her husband George unless she was trying to manipulate him in some way. Tesman is so blind to Hedda’s manipulative nature that he responded with joy, “Hedda- Oh, is this true?- What you’re saying?… I never noticed that you loved me in this way before”(1458). This disgusted Hedda because she was not truthfully trying to please Tesman and his reaction was one of excitement. With Hedda’s cold manipulati... ... middle of paper ... ...on to her problems. Hedda’s relationship with all three men ultimately created a life she was unhappy with thus leading her closer to her death.
Her marriage does not match her naively romantic expectations, and she lapses into a state of boredom and restlessness. After some time as Madame Bovary, Emma becomes pregnant, and in an attempt to revive her ill health her husband gives up everything he has and moves to a new town. However Emma does not see the sacrifice that he has made, but only sees where he has fallen short of her high e... ... middle of paper ... ... no real feelings for him, but she also included the art teacher and her girls in her scheme to fulfill her relationship with the art teacher. Although morally wrong and emotionally damaging to her girls, Miss Brodie encouraged her girls to have an affair with their former art teacher so that in some way she could be a part of his life. Because she completely overstepped her boundaries and put both the girls and the art teacher in morally and legally wrong situation for her own benefit and did not recognize the trauma and the responsibility her actions carried, Miss Brodie continued to be completely self-centered and without objectivity.
The marriage of Desdemona to Othello “is contracted despite the wishes of her father” (Gruber 100). By not informing her father of her recent marriage, Desdemona renounces traditional practices. It was very contradictory that she shunned “the institution of the fixed marriage” (Calderwood 353). Even beyond that, she marries outside her race which took the whole thing one step further. Her father feels very displeased and believes such a ... ... middle of paper ... ...or Desdemona and attest to her innocence” (Gruber 100).
They thought they had plenty of gentlemen who would marry them but soon found out that the men they had turned down so harshly now had no pity for them. On the other hand, many still had feelings for Beauty and several men offered to marry her yet she still refused, stating she could not think of leaving her father along in his troubles. At first Beauty would sometimes cry in secret over their misfortune, but in a very short time she decided, "All the crying in the world will do me no good, so I will try to be happy without a fortune" (22). After settling into their cottage, the merchant and his three sons began plowing and sowing the fields and working in a garden. Beauty did her part to help out; rising at four o'clock every morning to light the fires, clean the house, and fix breakfast for her family.
He knew he would never have a chance to get out of the Bowery with a future, so to earn as much respect as he could so he basically was a insensitive jerk to the world. But nevertheless the only one in his surroundings who actually showed love or any type of support to him was his younger sister Maggie. Jimmy also never had any good role models to look up to, so he took his defensive violent side out on anyone, even his mother when agitated. One of the bigger problems Jimmy later thrived on was to sweet talk some innocent girls over time to basically sleep with him. Of course they would end up penniless and pregnant with not enough food for themselves and Jimmy would be out the door never to be seen again.
Their thoughtless behavior carries on through their marriage as they both partake in affairs and emotionally torture their partners. When the Buchanans show their next act of carelessness it results in the death of three people. In “The Great Gatsby”, Tom and Daisy continually show how careless they are and there are many repercussions to their actions. Tom and Daisy Buchanan originally show how careless they are by deciding to get married and having love play a very small role in the decision. Daisy’s love for Jay Gatsby is undeniable, but as he spent many years away from her, the pressure to do something with her life grew.
But as they grew into adulthood, their relationship with their mother assumed an unhealthy complexion and explicit sexual overtones could be clearly felt in it as Mrs Morel herself revealed, “You know Paul-I’ve never had a husband-not really.”(p-87). She took her sons as husband-substitutes. The moment they grew economically independent, they instinctively stepped into the role of their mother’s husband. But howsoever, satisfying this relationship might be to Mrs Morel, it caused great strains on their minds. When William sought fulfilment outside, Mrs Morel could not tolerate it.
Janie’s relationship with Logan was exactly the opposite of her ideal type of relationship; not only did he treat her as if she was worthless because she refused to work for him, but the overall marriage was totally devoid... ... middle of paper ... ...t a bloom clearly is an underdeveloped blossom, hinting that Janie’s concept of love might have evolved. However, it is important to note that from the start, Janie knew Joe was not her ideal spouse (29), she was just looking for a change from Logan. After Tea Cake dies, Janie tells an old friend that “love is lak de sea” and that it is a moving, ever changing entity that is “different with every shore [that it meets]” (191). One can only hope that love can be as beautiful as the relationship Janie and Tea Cake shared. Works Cited "Feminism."
