This motivated Paul to search after luck... ... middle of paper ... ... no moral direction it is clear that since the family needed more love than money it suffered the consequences of it when they were constantly ignoring it specially on behalf Paul's mother. As I read the story with out a doubt in mind the story clearly manifests a serious lack of love in the family. Sexual satisfaction was another necessary in the case of Paul's mother because she was so lonely with out the care and love of a husband that was never close to her wife.
These literary devices allow the authors to create works that deliver more than one meaning or message while only stating one thing. The short story author or poet also successfully creates a complete story or poem in minimal words with the use of irony. Ironic scenarios or statements add shock to the writing and can significantly strengthen the emotional power of the story. Both the writers of the short story and the poem often use similar literary devices to achieve their goals. The use of the first person narrator is frequently seen in both short stories and poetry.
When Hester’s son Paul shows to be a beneficial character there is still no love for him till the end. Hester’s act of neglecting Paul is what leads her family to their destruction by her ever growing greed.

If you’re rich you may loose your money. But if you’re lucky you will always get more Forbes 2 money.”(Lawrence 1). The situation is then made worse by assuming that her misfortunes were caused by her marriage to an unlucky husband. “The father is clearly a failure as a provider and family-head, so much that we are scarcely conscious of his existence. And his failure is aggravated by the high social position the family tries to maintain (Koban 280).
It is this necessity of love that makes Catherine suffer. It is understandable that Catherine marries Edgar to improve her quality of life, as there would be few alternatives to do this, as women had no career prospects. However, Catherine's marries Edgar not only for her benefit but because 'If I marry Linton, I can aid Heathcliff and place him out of my brother's power' It is here that Catherine has unrealistic expectations although her altru... ... middle of paper ... ...d sympathy for Isabella because even Heathcliff warns her to some extent 'he stared hard at the object of discourse (Isabella), as one might do at a strange repulsive animal'. It seems that Isabella wilfully misreads the signals because she has a romantic illusion that she can tame the broody character into a loving one 'It is deplorable ignorance of his character which makes that dream enter your head. Pray, don' imagine that he conceals depths of benevolence and affection beneath a stern exterior!'
Money Obsession in David Herbert Lawrence's The Rocking-Horse Winner We have all heard the expression, "Money makes the world go round." But does this make it worthwhile to abandon happiness in order to gain more of it? David Herbert Lawrence reveals the folly of substituting money and luck for family and love in "The Rocking-Horse Winner," the story of a woman's insatiable need to become rich, and her son's struggle to gain her approval. The mother, Hester, obsesses over money. She comes from a fairly rich family, seemingly, as "there was never enough money ... not nearly enough for the social position which [the family] had to keep up" (363).
People were most concerned about wealth and family class. Ladies especially were suffering because a ladies did not go to work therefore she couldn't go on earning her own money, so marring a rich man was her way of solving her financial gain. If a women was not very pretty than she was not expected to find a very rich man. The Bennets family consist of a family of five daughters and mother and father. A women could not inherit her fathers wealth so its problem for the Bennets because without a son in the family there would be nobody else to be able to carry on the family wealth.
Especially considering that Alice herself admitted that she does not think fondly of the male race. Albert, throughout the book, is in no way portrayed as a good man until the very end when his whole world comes crumbling down because Celie finally stood up for herself and left with Shug. This writer feels that this is indirectly saying that men are weak and can not function in life without a “strong Woman” to guide them. I will add personally that a woman does not make a man, actions and attitude make a man. That being said, Albert is not a good man, but he realizes this and changes his ways towards the end of the story which I feel deserves him a great deal of respect.
This story came to me as a surprise. It was not a happy ending and I was very sad at the end. The author knows how to control people’s emotions and can easily change them. Now I know that a piece does not have to be what someone might expect to be thought of as “good writing”. A piece can change up the rules of writing and still be considered “good writing”.
Myrtle thinks that acting like a snob makes her sound fancy, but it just makes her sound even more like herself: a vulgar, common, cheating woman.
