She continues by addressing masculinity in a modern sense and brings up the idea that men are now dramatizing ones passions as opposed to shunning it, hiding it in the recesses of their identities. This is juxtaposed with Mr. Draper a “man’s man” who is “emotionally reserved” and is portrayed as valuing ecstasy over emotion . The essay then progresses with her asking colleagues and coworkers about why they tune into Mad Men, which varies from the intricate plot lines to the fact Don is “hot”.

It is these women who Goodlad asserts Don holds in high regard even though misogynistic undertones are prevalent in the office and the era.
Like the introduction, I also found the conclusion to be effective in its description and imagery. Now realizing that the chapter obviously has nothing to do with literally eating a guava, I have tried my best to decipher the symbolism of each paragraph. I don’t think that I could accurately predict what the chapter is going to be about from reading only the introduction and the conclusion, so perhaps that says something about the effectiveness as well.

I also think that the guava may have reminded her of her childhood, and imaginably herself as a child when she was “not quite ripe”.
The metaphorical use of food in this film occurs frequently, suggesting significance. In Fried Green Tomatoes emotional relationships and underlying meanings and truths are revealed, not directly, but through the movie's metaphorical and symbolic use of food. Starting off, the first example I noticed from the movie was the use of food expressing emotional insight into the character of Evelyn. Her habitual candy bar consumption is a method she uses to coup with her failing marriage, insecurities of growing old, and general dissatisfaction with life. This next line comes from an online review written by Janet Maslin, titled “Fried Green Tomatoes”, found on the NYT website explaining “The film's overstatement is such that Evelyn has to appear in flowered frocks and stiff hairdos, nibbling candy bars and gazing longingly at her equally rotund husband, to establish the fact that she is unhappy.” This line re emphasizes how Evelyn’s eating habits suggest her current unhappy state.

Shakespeare uses language, structure and dramatic devices to convey and create the effect of strong emotions through his ambitious characters, which is similarly portrayed in laboratory with the narrator’s strong and bitter emotions towards her husband’s infidelity. These characters can also be compared to the narrator of Porphyria’s lover whose intense emotions of love become too overwhelming for him to handle. Both Shakespeare and Browning show Elizabethan society as patriarchal, where men were considered to be the leaders and women subservient. Women were regarded as the weaker sex not just in terms of physical strength, but also emotionally.

From the bells and rockets in Deep Throat symbolizing sex, now in these films we actually have sex stand for something.
