In the play Gertrude demonstrates many characteristics and traits as the play progresses.
Even evil characters and real people can find someone to love. At an extreme end, can provoke Mama Bear or Papa Wolf reactions if they are threatened, or prompt the loved ones to Avenging the Villain. It also marks the villain as hypocritical and shows his twisted worldview by treating everyone else as insects but excluding the few ones he has feelings of affection for.
For the reciprocal situation, where an evil character has someone who loves them, see Even Evil Can Be Loved. Guaranteed that it will overlap with Moral Myopia when the villain sees no problem with their own methods, until those methods are turned on the ones they love.
Gendo Ikari is really an evil bastard but he definitely loved his wife Yui, and, in the movie, is shown to love his son but not know how to take care of him, which is why he makes such a piss poor parent to poor Shinji.
Note that in the mangahe only loves Yui and hates Shinji for stealing her love.
Subverted in Death Note where Light sheds away his initial care for his family after his descent in morality. When his sister was kidnapped by Mello, he seriously considered killing her with the Death Note and only relented because it would frame him as Kira. On top of that he threatened his girlfriend Misa to kill her and had his other girlfriend Takada burn herself to death.
Even Misa was horrified at that and broke down in tears. Played straight with Matt and Mello. They may have been sociopathic assholes, but the three Trinity siblings of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 did really love and protect each other.
And Nena genuinely cried and mourned when Michael and Johann got killed. This trope drives the plot of Basilisk.
Two clans of blood thirsty killers, with their loyalties held close to their hearts, spiral the Cycle of Revenge to tragedy. Despite this he is clearly shown to love his younger brother Saphir and his motivation for taking over the earth is partly because he promised his brother that they would one day live happy lifes there, away from the desolation of Nemesis.
Especially in the manga, where he is forced to kill him after he is brainwashed into attacking Dimande by the real Big Bad of the season, Wiseman. This causes Dimande to eventually turn on Wiseman and is one of the things that inspires him to perform a Heroic Sacrifice to save Usagi, thereby redeeming himself somewhat.
This is surprising, as Pride is by far the most evil of all the homunculi, and in fact he himself seems a bit confused by his own feelings. One more example with the homunculi: Envy and Gluttony especially Gluttony seem to be pretty fond of their "sister," Lust.JUMP TO THE LATEST ENTRY IN THE INFINITE JEST LIVEBLOG TABLE OF CONTENTS.
Introduction to the Liveblog Don’t Read the Foreword, pgs. xi — xvi. Focussing on key quotations and theatrical interpretations, Tamara Tubb explores the character of Gertrude in Hamlet and her role within the play.
Exploring the character of Gertrude Gertrude is Hamlet’s mother and Queen of Denmark. Port Manteaux churns out silly new words when you feed it an idea or two. Enter a word (or two) above and you'll get back a bunch of portmanteaux created by jamming together words that are conceptually related to your inputs..
For example, enter "giraffe" and you'll get back words like "gazellephant" and "gorilldebeest". Both also support a romantic relationship between Ophelia and Hamlet, though the film more explicitly, which only further empowers her character.
Thus, Ophelia can be added to the plethora of strong female characters created by Shakespeare. Being evil doesn't always mean hatred and negativity 24/7. Even evil characters (and real people) can find someone to love.
Often, that love is twisted, a cause for villainy, or an act but sometimes a work can show an evil character's love is genuine and deep. This serves to humanize the character. Download-Theses Mercredi 10 juin
