Marraige has been involved in many of the readings this semester For example The Story of an Hour My Last Duchess and The Glass Menagerie all contained married couples Each work discusses the terms of wedded bliss differently and yet they are alike as well In The Story of an Hour Mrs Mallard moves straight from the control of her father into the control of her husband She has never before been allowed to think or do anything for herself She has always been under the influence of another When she learns of her husbands demise Mrs Mallard is finally able to see life as it could be on her own exciting and free Though she loves her husband and knows that he in return loves her Mrs Mallrd looks forward to life alone The character of Amanda in The Glass Menagerie differs greatly from Mrs Mallards character in The Story of an Hour Amanda too has always been controlled by one man or another but where Mrs Malard dislikes it Amanda revels in it she loves the attention granted by men She loved being cared and provided for Amanda fel in love with her husbands charm and wit and handsome face She was crushed when he left her where Mrs Mallard rejoiced at the chance for freedom her husbands death provded The Duke in My Last Duchess has kind of a twisted outlook on marraige but then again he is also completely insane He thinks that because his wife was friendly and smiled at other people she must have been unfaithful The Duke expected her to smile only for him He wanted to be the only person in her life and to have complete control of her That is completely unreasonable The Duke had a famous artist paint a portrait of her but when he sees it he is convinces that they had an affair He feels this way because of the way
