The Unexpected And Tony Kites Arch Deceiver

Compare And Contrast The Unexpected and Tony Kites Arch Deceiver

Both these short stories are similar because the time they were
written at (19th Century) but different in tone. The narrative "The
Unexpected" has a more serious manner to it because of the way women
were treated at the time.

At the time, women were not allowed to vote, women did not have
important jobs in their society and did not have equal rights. Women
were mostly dependant on men. Women married men to gain power in
society but most of all money. Today women are now becoming far more
independent and have more equal opportunities.

The short story "The Unexpected" is about a man called Randall, which
has a relationship with Dorothea. It is obvious when Randall returns
from his illness there is an obvious change with his appearance and
personality. We can tell what she thinks of Randall at the time by her
immediate response.

"This was not the man the man who had gone away from her; the man she
loved and had promised".

This quote indicates that she manages to make this thought just by
looking at him. This quote reflects Dorothea's true feelings for
Randall, which turn out to be just lust. The next quote will support
my theory, when Dorothea just describes what his appearance is like
and not what his personality is.

"His skin waxy and hectic, red upon the cheekbones. His eyes were
sunken; his features pinched and prominent; and his clothing hung
loosely upon his wasted frame".

"The lips with which he had kissed her so hungrily, and with which he
was kissing her now, were dry and parched, and his breath was feverish
and tainted."

Here we see the kiss representing Randall. Randall seems to linger and
drag. Randall is like this because he knows himself that he is changed
and he doesn't want to lose Dorothea.

Yet again there is more evidence of...
