The histrorian James Romm portrayed Agrippina as a woman who was simply trying to escape the restrictions imposed on her by society. To quote james Romm “she stands out as the sole Roman woman to attempt to break the ultimate glass ceiling: to wield the power of a princeps, not just behind the scenes but before the astonished eyes of the senate,” Romm takes into account both the ancient writers and his own interpretation of Agrippina. Romm believes that her determination not only furthered her power but ultimately caused her downfall. He observes that the majority of Claudius move show us that Agrippina was shown as a “political asset”. Romm concluded that even though Agrippina may have been manipulative and ambitious she was still able to achieve what women of the era could not.
She had adopted the name to distance herself emotionally from her bloody work of killing. Arrow was a courageous character, as she put her life in jeopardy to protect the civilians. Arrow became the “defender of hope” when she was told her new task to protect the cellist.

Wilde explores the subject of morality frequently within the play and the conflicting ideas surrounding the topic. Wilde particularly explores the idea of women ‘falling from grace’. This can be seen in the character of Mrs Arbuthnot. The character is quite obviously a good, strong woman who has taken her misfortunes in stride and not let them bring her down too much, as well as raising her son to also be a good person. Many people would argue that the blame for her misfortune should solely lay on Lord Illingworth, who, it is obvious to the audience, used her for his own pleasure and satisfaction, abusing her love and trust.

Certain cultures may teach that sex (of any form) before marriage is not wrong while others believe that our morals change as society allows it to. There are always new beliefs and philosophies being introduced. Chopin wants to open the eyes of the world and convince us that passion shouldn’t be just for marriage and that adultery is good because it can strengthen a relationship. Coming from a more conservative Christian background, I don’t agree with her ideas. Some people believe that society as a whole looks down on people who are simply “different.” The author's general attitude is that everyone needs a way of escape, at certain times in his or her relationships.
