The display of anger in each tale from young ladies is very similar. The angry1ittle princess throwing the frog against the wall and Bell shunning and yelling at the beast for holding her captive if you will. Each story offers the exploration and concepts of conflict and transformation as well as deal with adolescent concerns in a positive, entertaining and motivating manner. 2. How would I define the struggle between Snow White and the stepmother in Grimm’s tale as a protagonist vs. antagonist?
This is the fairies first arguments to convince the child that their world is more beautiful. One example of this is in the very beginning of the stanza: "There we've hid our faery vats full of berries, and of reddest stolen cherries." These lines tell the child that their world is full of many sweet things, things that he would not get nor find in his own world. However, in order to make their argument stronger they state that the world is full of more sorrow and horror than any other place. They also neglect the fact of telling the child the wonders of his own world.
Grandma Lynn is one of the more vibrant, vain and misunderstood characters within the novel, like her Daughter she portrays an air of selfishness (Relating back to her daughter leaving the family in a time of crisis) however she takes the role of the level-headed peacekeeper throughout her appearances in the Novel, from her arrival before Susie’s funeral to her departure. We also notice how she is a hardened person, unlike the rest of the family. Sebold represents her as a vain and self-conscious character, an alcoholic and above all she has a straight forward attitude. Sebold initially represents Grandma Lynn in the play as one of the more hardened characters, upon her arrival we already get an idea of the character as someone who is unaffected by personal crisis’s such as Susie’s death, even before her arrival the call between Abigail and Grandma Lynn helps to portray her hardened character, the way that she is blankly states that “She has to come because it’s Susies funeral” she doesn’t seem to show much emotion on her arrival and the way that she brings a more vibrant atmosphere into the solemn and sad house. Even on her arrival instead of confronting the issue of Susies death she orders for a “Stiff Drink”.
A Woman’s Duality By Maya Asfour Edna’s self reserved character and the propensity to mask her emotions had a lot to do with her mother’s death when she was at a very young age in addition to not being close to either of her sisters, and that all the girls she befriended happened to be of a self contained type. Edna decided to take her place as a married woman with dignity, thus sacrificing her needs to attain the demands of society. But even though she does not attend to her needs they exist inside of her, causing her to question and desire while her body does what others expect her to do. Madame’s Ratignolle compassionate gesture at the beach provokes Edna to realize that she was brought up to be a reserved woman. The gesture also inspires Edna to speak openly and freely and by doing so Edna feels intoxicated as if she tasted “the first breath of freedom” [VII Chopin].
What would Alice Paul and Snookie even talk about, would they become enemies or best of friends? Snookie in my opinion is weak minded and I think that Alice Paul who was an intelligent human being would probably convince Snookie to fight for women’s rights. Snookie is perceived as a drunken woman who has no respect for her body in more than one way would really discourage Alice Paul. Alice Paul would see that all of that pain and suffering she went through it all for nothing. Women still do not respect themselves especially since Snookie is so popular among viewers of television and other women want to be like Snookie.
The play Midsummer’s Night Dream is no exception. There are several secretive characters that change mortals’ fates. The 3 main characters that symbolizes godly beings that change the mortal’s fate: Titania the Queen of the fairies, Oberon the King of the fairies, and mischievous Puck. Shakespeare enjoys using characters that are supernatural, for example in Macbeth, he chose the 3 witches to act our as ‘fate’ while in Midsummer’s Night Dream, there are the fairies. They are both imaginary figures which might be the reason why they are given the power to modify human’s fate and lifestyle.

The workers speak of her, basically, as Curley’s problem that needs to stay at home away from the other workers. She opens herself up to Crooks and Lennie because they possess equal amounts of powerlessness as she does. Curley’s wife feeds off of character’s insecurities, so she can strengthen herself against harm. At the end Curley’s wife’s powerlessness shows greatly when she is strangled at the hands of Lennie who she tries to seduce. This just shows how women then were little to any powerful.

Fairytale satire is currently a highly popular feature in modern literature and celluloid, represented by fairytale movie adaptations such as Beastly, Sydney White, The Cinderella story and more so by popular spoof television shows like The Simpsons, Family Guy et cetera. Shrek is characterized as the protagonist and male hero in this fictional simulated saga. The very deliberate fact of Shrek being an ogre deconstructs every stereotype of a straight and square fairytale as the ogre always represents cannibalistic evil in most of these conventional stories. Shrek as an ‘ogre-hero’ defies social expectations, binary oppositions, perception of glamour and the idea of romance, all at once. Where fairytales are expected to glorify the protagonist as the ultimate hero with charming looks, gracious mannerisms and valiant gallantry, Shrek is at complete odds with all such attributes.
