It serves to please the ear and bind verses together, to make lines more memorable, and for humorous effect. Last autumn a wife who came to the mountain back of the Pindora of the Toribe Temple, presumably to pay a visit, was murdered, along with a girl. It has been suspected that it was his doing. If this criminal murdered the man, you cannot tell what he may have done with the man 's wife. May it please your honor to look into this problem as well. Gender roles have been defining women for centuries, however the women in both The Wife of Bath and King Lear violate just about every gender role of their time.
Regan is a fictional character in William Shakespeare 's tragic play King Lear , named after a king of the Britons recorded by the medieval scribe Geoffrey of Monmouth. Shakespeare based the character on Regan, a personage described by Geoffrey of Monmouth in his pseudo-historical chronicle Historia regum Britanniae "History of the Kings of Britain", c. She is the middle child of King Lear's daughters and is married to the Duke of Cornwall. Similarly to her older sister Goneril , Regan is attracted to Edmund.
We also see how unfairly women are treated in the novel Pride and Prejudice. We see this at the beginning of the novel when Mrs Bennet has to ask Mr Bennet to go over and introduce himself to Mr Bingley so that she and their daughters may get to know him. All the women in this novel seem to care about is men and there is not a single conversation that does not revolve around them.
We also know that she is responsible for these heartless things because she has so much guilt that she commits suicide. Macbeth would never have done any of those horrible things if it were not for the murder of King Duncan, which was forced on by Lady Macbeth. At the beginning of the play, Macbeth is a trusted soldier, who is honest and noble. These three prophecies slowly change his opinions on life and turn him into a greedy, dishonest, tyrant, full of ambition. Lady Macbeth is responsible for influencing her husband to commit both crimes; she unleashes the dark side of him and motivates him to become an evil and horrendous man.
