When Creon came to know of Antigone’s plan he called for her and when she did not deny of the fact that she buried her dishonorable brother’s body he grew angry and assumed Ismene her younger sister had helped her. Ismene being the good sister that she is lied and said she had helped Antigone, after that Creon ordered for them to be locked up. Haemon, Creon's son and Antigone's fiancé, promised to be loyal to his father and not talk to Antigone but he tried his best to persuade his father to spare her life, but they end... ... middle of paper ... ...ad noble intentions and was completely loyal to the state, but in the end he is only human and his main weakness was his poor judgment. This play makes one reconsider what make people righteous and what make them temporarily lose judgment. I find it very interesting because no matter how old this play is, the concept is real and initially got through to the audience.
“It is also clear that the lady who gives the ring in the tales is often romantically linked with the hero. In this way, Lady Bertilak 's offer of the ring implicitly casts Gawain and herself as lovers, fitting well with her earlier attempts at seduction. Gawain may not accept the ring because of its costliness, but also because it is a clear token of love” (Cooke 5). Gawain does not want commitment with Lady Bertilak, or a relationship at all, so he claims that it is worth too much money and declines it. Lady Bertilak is still desperately trying to get him to love her and it is not working out.
In the first act King Lear commands his daughters to profess their love to him as payment for their part of the kingdom. The conflict starts when Lear’s youngest daughter Cordelia refuses to respond to the king’s request, due to the fact that she does not want to lie to her father. Lear comes across as a very egotistical man who has to have everything his way. Therefore, due to Cordelia’s response it would make sense for him to become so enraged that he would ruin her marriage with Burgundy. Lear makes it very apparent that he wants all of Cordelias love and isn’t satisfied with Cordelia’s words which are not offensive, but hurtful to her father who desires all of her love.
Gatsby was drawn to this and he knew that he had to make her his, but the Great War had ruined his plans on any future with her. Gatsby claims in the story that they had fallen madly in love when they were together, but I do not think that is the case. If D... ... middle of paper ... ...he is dating her is just for the sake of making Daisy and Gatsby happy. He would attend Gatsby’s parties with her; that is where he met his neighbor Gatsby. Nick feels no love for Jordan, and in fact, when he breaks up with her when Gatsby passes away, she tells him that she was already engaged to another man.
At first, Beauplaisir has to use his own stratagem to ‘persuade’ the Widow: “He did not, however, offer, as he had done to Fantomina and Celia, to urge his passion directly to her, but by a thousand little softning artifices, which he well knew how to use, gave her leave to guess he was enamour'd.” That is, she creates a fake chase by pretending to be disinterested in order to give him a sense of agency as he actively ‘chose’ to pursue her. Conversely, the heroine really controls the narrative- he is attracted to the same woman again, albeit unknowingly thanks to her acting. In fact, the heroine directly acknowledges the acting she is doing as Bloomer to keep her control hidden. Particularly, Haywood writes, “She said little in answer to the strenuous pressures with which at last he ventur'd to enfold her, but not thinking it decent, for the character she had assum'd, to yield so suddenly, and unable to deny both his and her own inclinations, she counterfeited a fainting, and fell motionless upon his breast.” In short, she purposefully faints so he would take her to the bedroom and they could act on their attraction without her going out of character. This hides the agency that
Towards the end of the story she explains to Othello how her husband asked her to steal the handkerchief from Desdemona She clearly states she know it is the right to obey her husband, but she was not going to support him in his wrong. She is one of the few in this time period to disobey their husband. Emilia is not the type of wife to support him in his wrong-doing. She stands up to her husband. Comparatively, men have and will always try to turn any situation to them.
Firstly, Gertrude followed a wicked man willingly. It was revealed that she did in fact knew of Claudius’s sinister ways when Hamlet confronted Gertrude in her bedroom chambers, and Hamlet chastised his mother for all her wrong doing and the murderer she proclaims to love. Gertrude could not handle his scorn and asked Hamlet to stop, because the guilt was too much to bare. She did not react to Hamlet calling Claudius a murderer or denied it, but Gertrude did run to Claudius after the confrontation with Hamlet. It can be heavily assumed that she knew of his wicked ways, but only seen him as her loving husband.
Clearly Emilia wants to please her husband, so she obeys all of his orders just to avoid any trouble with him. Emilia proves her underrated intelligence by telling everyone about Iago's plan to ruin Othello's and Desdemona's marriage. Iago is oblivious to the fact that Emilia knows everything and is in total shock once she tells everyone. Revealing Iago's plan not only makes her the hero of the story, but it also allows her to prove her underrated intelligence. As a result of her action, ... ... middle of paper ... ...en.
