The poem later confirms the fatal tragedies of these men with “anyone who has heard it is dead, and the others can't remember.”(8-9). Thus, it shows the men have the tendency to be arrogant in front of women, and over estimated their ability to survival. In addition, men have the strong and undefeatable self-concept which leads them to become less defensive with woman simply because women are view as weak and harmless to men. On the other hand, the poem also creates a very dominant and intelligent image for the woman which represents by the song bird, Siren. She understands that men are physically attracted to beautiful woman s the poem describes her as “picturesque and mythical” (15).
Curley’s wife is first portrayed as a very stuck up sexually attractive, very young middle class women “no one can hurt looking” which suggests she is good looking but taken i.e married. However “she’s got the eye” which suggests that she although taken has a roving eye and likes to look at other men besides Curley which may also suggest she is unhappy and not impressed with her husband Curley “I don’t like Curley he ain’t a nice fella” which makes the other characters think that being so young she is “Jailbait” and also because she is always flirting. So when we first see Curley’s wife she is portrayed, like Lady Macbeth, as a good looking women but is lacking in confidence where ever she goes and could end up being victimised. Sayings like “I don’t like Curley he ain’t a nice fella” make it look like she really does not like Curley. Steinbeck wrote what he saw.
It also suggests that she misses her past through the use of a rhetorical question which makes the reader feel sympathy for her. In the poems “Medusa” and “Les Grands Seigneurs” both of the poems explore gender conflict through love/relationships and they are both written from a woman’s perspective. In “Les Grands Seigneurs” the character was single and she was able to manipulate men and was “their queen”. We can interpret that she controlled the men through lust. In the poem “Medusa” gender conflict through control is also illustrated when she says: “a suspicion, a doubt, a jealousy”.
Once he grants Psyche her desire to see her sisters, they plant evil thoughts and her head and raise certain questions, which make Psyche skeptical. She begins to question her love and lets others opinion get the best of her. I don’t understand why she just couldn’t continue living the life she loved along with the man she loved. Subsequently, to the aforementioned I am able to include Propp’s trickery function into the story. Psyche was not only tricked by Venus, the villain, but also by her sisters.

This shows us that no matter how hard they hoped and worked for their dream, it would eventually collapse, just like Wall Street. Every character I am going to comment on has or had a dream, in reality, they will never achieve. I will begin with Curley’s wife because, even though, she isn’t a migrant worker, she is still a prime example of loneliness and disappointment during the great depression. Throughout the novella, we become aware of just how lonely Curley’s Wife is, due to her hanging around the other men and craving their attention. She dresses in red high heels and wears red lipstick in order to attract the other men and gain their attention.

In his tragic play, Medea, he highlighted his sympatheticness towards women. Although Medea was a violent and irrational character, Euripides manages to convince the audience to give her sympathy, showing the Euripides was heavily empathetic with the women of his era.

Medea, the main character of the tragedy, was an extremely radical anti-heroine who continues to inspire both admiration and fear in the readers today.
