M. Loisel was pretty, but the evil, that is greed, was unmasked from inside her, that she lost her looks too. Her friend at their first meeting after a few years is unable to recognize her and assumes her “a poor woman”. In a like manner, in “The Rocking Horse Winner” by D.H Lawrence, Hester’s hunger for more money leads to the death of her son, Paul. To illustrate, Paul secretly gave all his earning to his mother since “the house had been 'whispering' worse than ever lately”(Lawrence) and “Paul could not bear up against it”. Paul worked himself so hard getting money for his mother that he reached a state of physical exhaustion and “the ... ... middle of paper ... ...out children, while Hester lived in a huge house with a family and yet both these women still want more.
William Shakespeare’s famous romantic tragedy, Romeo & Juliet, tells the story of two teenagers in love despite their violent circumstances in the midst of a family feud. Often called the greatest love story ever told, the plot of the play doesn’t leave much room for a build-up
However, this does not deter Catherine and Heathcliff’s friendship, which begins to evolve into love as the two mature. Catherine and Heathcliff continue to defy their brother as they grow older, refusing to clean themselves, dress properly, or behave in a civilized manner. One day the two come to Thrushcross Grange (another house on the same land as Wuthering Heights), where they attempt to scare the two children, Edgar and Isabella Linton, who live there with their ... ... middle of paper ... ...e between Catherine, Heathcliff, and Edgar. The actions that these three took as a result of this affected each other and their children greatly. The forced “love” that existed between the relationships of Edgar and Catherine and Catherine II and Linton is one type of love to the novel.
The fact that she never ceased in her attempts exemplifies her love and determination when it comes to her son. Another occurrence of her being harmed by lies and dishonesty of those in her life is the failure of her marriage with Mr. Shear. Although their marriage may not have been perfect the very fact that they ran off together is a testament to the fact that at least at one point they cared very deeply for one another but nevertheless their marriage fell into shambles. One could easily claim that the catalyst for that was the arrival of her son and the chaos that followed his arrival. Once he arrived at their home on more than one occasion police appeared at their door, she lost her job, her ex-husband belligerently appeared at their home and many more
Shakespeare's Views on Love in Romeo and Juliet Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare's sixteenth century tragedy, remains one of the most famous, timeless pieces of literature yet created. This bittersweet tale documents the forbidden attraction between two impulsive children, and their tragic suicides. The story's incidents, saturated with Shakespeare's views and opinions, reveal the playwright's philosophies on love. Many consider Romeo and Juliet the greatest love story of all time, yet when the "love" between the two main characters is analyzed, it cannot truly be considered love. Instead Shakespeare wrote this play as a testament of the harsh consequences of reckless lust and attraction, and endeavored to send an admonition.

Caitlin’s family showed the decay of the traditional family, torn apart by a loss of a child. It also called into question why do men abuse women, and why do people so close to the victim do nothing about it. This was a story about a girl, who got broken by a male, and was able to put herself together again.
It is fascinating how the most famous plays in history have the most tragic endings. They are not what we would imagine a normal fairy tale ending to be like. In the play, Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet are portrayed as star-crossed lovers. In the opening scene, the chorus states that Romeo and Juliet are two young lovers from opposing families who were destined to fall in love and eventually die together. Juliet’s parents have the perfect life planned for Juliet.
The unarguable theme in Shakespeare’s “A midsummer night’s dream” is love. Here the playwright explores how people fall in love and that the pursuit of love can make people irrational and foolish. By using the cliché that “the course of true love never did run smooth” Shakespeare suggests that love is “really an obstacle course with the capacity to turn us all into madmen.” (Shmoop Editorial Team, 2008). Furthermore the love represented in this play is far from true and by placing his characters in the fairy realm Shakespeare suggests that love is simply an illusion. The idea of difficult love is very often explored through the motif of” love out of balance”.
However, she is unable to let that lifestyle go and their family is left with a constant shortage of money. Only after Paul wins money for her is she able to have “the luxury [she] had been used to” (Lawrence, 757). His mother is said to have married for love, but in the time since then it has “turned to dust”. She also has three children, but she does not love them either. She knows that her heart has a “hard little place that could not feel love...” (Lawrence, 750).
Esperanza also sees the economic dependence that marriage creates for many women. While one woman cries everyday because her husband left "without leaving a dollar for bologna or a note explaining how come" another is miserable because the husband gets kicked out and is always let back in, regardless of the abuse she suffers at his hands (Cisneros 29, 85).

Esperanza decided early on that she would not take on the burden of her mother and the women before her, merely caring for a husband and raising children. She wanted a house all her own and realized that she could get it autonomously if she strove hard in school and continued to write.
