To cement the concept, Laura and Jim’s discourse later on in the play reveal her deepest insecurities and how he perceives her, as well as his reasons for leaving her. Consequentially, dialogue serves as the final nail in the coffin and gives the viewer an intimate glimpse inside each character’s struggles and insecurities.

As one of the educated and intelligent women emerging from this era, Austen used the character of Elizabeth Bennet, in Pride and Prejudice, to epitomize the harmonious balance between reason and... ... middle of paper ... ...he more valuable when contrasted with that of Kitty and Lydia, where Lydia simply encourages Kitty in foolishness and is insensitive to her when she is upset. Her high spirits,which can be construed as flirtatious, also attract Darcy to her, as illustrated by her demand that he help to sustain a conversation between them when they dance together at the Netherfield ball. Her character is in no way unfeminine, and it is no wonder that Darcy is attracted to her after he comes to know and understand her. From this, we can see that Austen has managed to create her ideal woman in Elizabeth. Her strength and intelligence are qualities that make her respectable and admirable to any man or woman, but the fact that she possesses a softer, feminine side makes her genuinely attractive in the eyes of the reader, and helps us to better appreciate her other qualities.

Part of the escape party found a home on the Argyll patterned sweater stretched across his swollen belly, and the other, on the ugly cushion that Trish got them as a wedding present.

He extends this metaphor to his fictional world. He keeps the reader involved by attempting to lead the reader down several of these paths in order to make this point. As a reader, we look for symbols to help find solutions to these questions. More than anything else, The Crying of Lot 49 appears to be about cultural chaos and miscommunication as seen through the eyes of a young woman who eventually finds herself hallucinating while watching the world coming down around her. Somewhere along the way, as the story becomes even more convoluted, Oedipa becomes more confused, and so does the reader.
Don’t you ever just wish you could go up and introduce yourself to a stranger and learn their entire life’s story?" She repossessed her croissant and took a voice-saving mouthful, nodding her head disjointedly in case he possessed the consciousness to glance at her tongue-trapped tangle on the other side of the table. She sneakily slid her feet out of her shoes and flexed her toes in their freedom under the tablecloth tiered table. The ache retched in her bones and her thoughts drowned in the haze of mid-stride wonderment, but not before the emptiness and pain of dismissal.

Jesse came into the main lodge, placed her reading glasses and the dossiers beside Lynette, and helped herself to the buffet. She sat beside Lynette and said, “They don’t have Marina’s books in the gift shop.” “What a shame,” Lynette said as she tasted a fluffy pancake.
