She loves hamlet, so when he treats her badly within the same scene she retreats back to the side of her family. This primarily happens when Ophelia says “At home my lord” upon Hamlets inquiry as to where her father is (3.1.132). This choice affects her, through the idea that Hamlet is bad for her, which due to her love for him she is torn between loving him and obeying her family’s guidance. Her hostility to Hamlet, “you are naught you are naught” becomes evident the next scene she is around him and he shows his poor behavior (3.2.152). Ophelia now believes that Hamlet no longer loves her, and comes to the idea that her father and brother were right in warning her of Hamlets evil intentions.
Following these storylines, there are three key points to address: the relationship between husband and wife, women’s standings within society and finally, the end that it drives these originally normal women to. At first Gilman’s character tries to rebel against her husband through writing, (something she has been forbidden from doing while on her hiatus). In “The Yellow Wallpaper,” Gilman implies that although her husband is “very careful and loving” (Gilman 449) she is also her condemner. Gilman addresses the fact that John prev... ... middle of paper ... ...tanding of equality; but in these novella’s the reader can only see the loneliness, inner-turmoil, and feelings of inadequacy that plagued every one. The reader learns that forcing a person, particularly a woman, into such a place of exaggerated separation can have grave consequences.
Estella is Miss Havisham’s mini me of her self, a heartbroken women who has ... ... middle of paper ... ...is by wishing her the best and wanting the best for her. He will always love her but he knows he cannot have her. In the beginning we think that he isn’t in love, for he doesn’t even know Estella, to the terms of what we think would be the foundation for any loving relationship. She treats him like crap and tries to make him feel like crap 24 hours a day. The saying, “the ones you hate, are the ones you really love”, applies in this book.

The former invalid, Zeena, was now forced to care for them both. Perhaps Edith Wharton's reason for writing Ethan Frome, was that it so vividly reflected her own dreary life. Abandoned of any love as a child from her mother and trapped in a marriage similar to that of Zeena and Ethan, Wharton found herself relying on illicit love. This illicit love was also her favorite topic of writing, which helped her to escape her own tragedies.
It is ironic however, because before he deemed her as lower than him because of her woman’s mind, something she accepts as well,. Mr. Ramsay curses her out of frustration, but this frustration is both towards her and himself. He questions why he is so mad at her for going against his own wantings. This reveals Mr. Ramsay’s insecurity of having his wife, the woman that is there for him in his times of need, questioning his logical choices. He understands for a brief
It makes people think badly of the family and shames them. People knew that Wickham wasn?t in love with Lydia, and that Lydia lives for the excitement. Lydia?s attitude towards marriage was that she enjoys flirting and having a good time, so wasn?t thinking of her future. In the book it says that Mr Wickham?s ?affection for her soon sunk into indifference?. As they were not thinking about love or their future, their marriage is not a happy one and although Lydia likes to brag about being the first one of the daughters to be married, it is predicted she will regret this later.
Theseus described lovers as “Madmen”. Helena was the character that really showed this aspect of love. She always felt ashamed and she always blamed herself for loving Demetrius despite his bad treatment to her and his love towards her friend Hermia. Nevertheless, she is still loyal to their old promises. She cannot find explanations for his abundance as she knows that she is as beautiful as Hermia but she also believes that “Love said to be a child, because in choice he is so oft beguiled.” In her article Discordia Concors on the Order of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Jane Brown contrasts Helena and Hermia’s conviction about love when she writes,” Helena insists on the blindness of love.” That is to say, she gives herself the excuses to act that recessively when she believes that her heart is forced to do so and she has to follow it.
The loving wife justifies his remarks although they are condescending. The inability to talk to her husband and the lack of justification of her feelings leads the narrator to feel as if she is not understood by her husband, “John does not know how much I really suffer. He knows there is no reason to suffer, and that satisfies him.”. (649
The journal becomes an outlet for her true feelings that she believes would get her incarcerated if anyone else heard them. When she writes she states, “I think sometimes that if I were only well enough to write a little it would relieve the press of ideas and rest me. But I find I get pretty tired when I try.” Her husband who believes that her writing is contributing to her illness opposes this idea while not radical.
Again, Hardy uses another literary device: “how you call to me, call to me” (1-1). The use of repetition silhouettes the author’s excitement when he believes he is still communicating with his wife. His excitement becomes clearer as he is troubled with the fact that his wife’s behavior is back to normal. His wife’s ordinary behavior could explain why Hardy fell in love in the first place, but more so the proof that her behavior did in fact change; ultimately, exposing the tension between the two as well as why Hardy regrets the death of his wife so much. Similarly to the use of alliteration, the author utilizes his confusion through rhetorical questions, repetition and rhyme schemes.
