What eateries did the sculptor use, and what qualities did he already have that contributed to the final product? Behind every human, action, object, and Idea there are many forces that mold them and have many little parts working to create the final result of them. In Tees of the Derisively, Hardy shows the audience the different and similar outside and inner forces that mold Angel and Ale’s actions, and how ultimately those forces are what shape their actions and fate, one of whom is successful and the other whose fate ends tragically.
Ales Daredevil’s lacks proper familial upbringing, which Is vital for a proper inundation of values and morals. This is evident in Ale’s way of thinking leading to his actions, such as how he treats women. Family Is Important because It Instills empathy, Integrity, honesty, and respect. One major Impacted quality that contributes to Ale’s actions Is his lack of work ethic In his upbringing. Because he has never worked for a single one of the luxuries in his life, he takes his wealth for granted and does not understand the value of working for something.
Mr.. Simon Stokes, the father of Ales, is a self-made man, who rose to riches by working and gushing himself to them. Hardy describes Mr.. Stokes’s rise to fortune: “When old Mr. Simon Stoke, latterly deceased, had made his fortune as an honest merchant in the North, he decided to settle as a county man in the South of England, out of hail of his business district;” (34). Lack of familial nurture is evidently a force that made Ales turn out the way he has, because the audience does not see any of the moral aspects instilled In him.
Working Infuses a sense of responsibility and character, both of which Ales appears to not have. Lack of respect Induces the impolite way Ales treats is mother. He constantly wishes for her passing so he can Inherit the family fortune wholly to himself, and has a weak relationship with her. This relationship Is highlighted when Tees learns that the letter was indeed written by Ales, not his mother. Her realization leads nerd to gather Tanat “no great affection Towel Detente the blind woman and her son. But in that, too, she was mistaken. Mrs..
Daredevil’s was not the first mother compelled to love her offspring resentfully and to be bitterly fond” (56). Ales wrongly describes his mother as “selfish,” implying that he does not are much for her. Because he lacks proper foundation, Ale’s attitude towards women is discourteous and belittling. Living in the Victorian Era, Ales is a typical product of this age; he is a playboy driven by his lust which is shown by his egotistical attitude. He is a product of the higher wealthy social class, grasping the idea that he can have any woman he desires, depicting his hypocritical social status.
This is well employed in the way he treats Tees and other women. Giving into the force of lust, Ales takes advantage of the innocent and young Tees, and rapes her. Matching the times of the Victorian Era, the male ego leads Ales to believe that if he can have sex with Tees, he can also make her love him. Ales asks her, “Testy?don’t you love me ever so little now? ” (71). Corresponding with the times, it was a common belief that men are superior and may have whatever and whomever they please, and that if any fault occurs, the blame is on women.
When Tees implies that she is offended by Ale’s “lovemaking,” he responds reproachfully towards her: near three mortal months have you trifled with my feelings, eluded me, and snubbed me; and I won’t stand it! (69). He blames Tees and believes that he truly and rightfully deserves to have her, yet she keeps hesitating, which she should stop because he wants to be with her. Ales is only a product of the Victorian Era’s ideal on the wealthy and egotistical social class. Victorian society also influenced the actions of Angel; society expectations come into play as one of the major forces behind Angel Clare and his decisions.
Angel marries Tees with the retrospection that she is a Daredevil’s, so he puts that to a higher standard than it should be. Although he truly loves Tees, her family name is important to him, and that is depicted in the scene when he is thinking about her and his actions toward her; “When he found that Tees came of that exhausted ancient line, and was not of the new tribes from below, as he had fondly dreamed, why had he not stoically abandoned her, in fidelity to his principles? ” (262).
Interpreting from this thought, it is obvious that he is fighting the fact that he has accepted Tees even if she is not from the original Derailleur’s. Because of society expectations that have been deeply ingrained in him from the start, he is unable to origin Tees, although he clearly sees that she was a victim. Through his emotions, Angel is able to see what society demands of him, to uphold a respectable reputation. In order to preserve the roots of marriage, Angel leaves, thus preserving society propriety.
Social opinion plays a major role in Angel’s decisions. Unlike Ales, family is a major force in instilling values in Angel and his actions; Angel considers his family’s expectations and opinions greatly when deciding upon his actions. Unlike Ales, Angel does not lack familial upbringing. Mr.. Clare, a rigid but origin and loving man acts a role model figure to Angel; through the force of these qualities of his father, Angel’s actions are driven from love, not lust. In assessing Angel’s sconce, Mrs..
Clare assumes Tanat nerd gaunter-Len-law must De a pure Malden, because that is what is expected of Angel, to uphold a reputation: “And that she is pure and virtuous goes without question? ” (264). Because of this expectation, Angel rejects Tees when she confesses her dark past to him, not looking past the shallow appeal to others want to see. Although Angel appears to despise the social order, he as been brought up in such a household that the idea still impacts him. Also, we can see the contrast between the ways Angel treats Tees with love, and when Ales treats her as an object of his lust.
Angel refers to Tees in adoring and meaningful names such as Artemisia and Demeter, which show how highly he thinks of her, and how much he adores her. Thus, the audience sees that family has acted as a force in the actions of Angel and it has also affected his personality, thus impacting his decisions. The different forces that acted behind the actions of Ales and Angel are ultimately hat decide the fate of both of them; Angel is successful, whereas Ales is not. Later, Ales returns in his conquest for Tees after being converted by Angel’s father.
However, we can see that he has not truly converted, because his ways are still the same, “Remember lady! I was your master once! I will be your master again! If you are any man’s wife, you are mine! ” (336). If Ales had truly converted, he would have had a new way of thinking; yet, he still employs the egotistical, self-important way of thinking. This arrogance and constant pestering of Tees is ultimately what causes his nonfatal; if he had stopped trying to pursue Tees even after she made it clear she does not want to marry him, she would not have lost her sanity and killed him.
Angel is the one who is successful; he returns from his Journey as a renewed man. Be going into the wilderness, he rejects western civilization and he realizes that he was Just a product of his upbringing; he was Judgmental and although he did not see it earlier, he learns that he has wronged Tees. Going to Brazil, Angel was exposed to the many roles a woman takes in society; he opens his eyes to the women around the world, ND this allows him to reject the Victorian way of thinking.
Angel has changed his ways and has truly converted, which leads to his successful ending; the love and patience instilled in him by his family allow him to accept circumstances and still live a content life, married to Liz-Lu. As a result, the audience sees that the forces motivating Ale’s actions led him to be unsuccessful, while the more positive forces motivating Angel allowed him to be victorious. In the end, a human being is only a product of their own Judgments, actions, and surroundings.
Ales and Angel were driven by many of the same forces, but in different ways and motivating different actions. Ales was a product of the typical Victorian way of thinking in which his ego and wealth was stressed; his actions were driven by his arrogance and lust, which eventually leads to his tragic ending. The many contradicting forces that created Angel allowed him to ultimately reject them. Angel was almost as blind as Ales because he could not forgive Tees; however, he goes into the wilderness and is able to reject Victorian Society which recreated him as a new man.
