Stoker’s choose of women as the temptresses may be a warning to the women of the Victorian era to beware about pushing the boundaries of their sexuality. Stoker’s use of structuring emphasizes a women’s role in society at the time, this is the first women that Harker meets in the novel and they are devilish vampires, this implies that the novel appeals to an only male audience and their fantasy of women giving in to their temptations. Harker is simultaneously confronting a vampire and another creature equally terrifying to Victorian England, an unabashedly sexual woman, the evidence for this comes from the implied act of oral sex, ‘The fair girl went on her knees, bent over me, fairly gloating.’ Contextually the fact that Harker becomes the ‘submissive’ and is easily overpowered by their seduction and his own temptation shows the role reversal as women take on the dominating role that a traditional Victorian man is supposed to possess. The fact that Harker is both aroused and disgusted by the Vampires shows the Freudian
In order to express her feminist ideas, Atwood uses criticisms of Offred and Janine’s complacency juxtaposed with positive feminist role models like Moira. When Offred has the affair with the commander, she is helping to sate the loneliness and desires of a man who is part of her oppression. She is therefore partly responsible for her oppression because she is helping her oppressor. As Barbara Ehrenriech¹ said, Offred’s character ‘has sunk too far into the...household she serves’. Although this can be seen as a failure of Atwood to create a strong feminist character, it seems to be more intended as an anti-role model, making Offred’s complicity obviously undesirable.
He becomes one of the negative byproducts of the war because it causes him to become “insane” and inconsiderate towards the sentimental values associated with death. In conclusion, both these texts share the common idea that war has the potential to make a person’ death seem to be not too big a deal and erase all the sentimental, emotional and humane feelings affiliated with
In Jacobean times women were seen as inferior and even in the Victoria era, thus she required external forces to crush her conscience to allow her to fulfil her ambition. Yet she is afraid her feminine qualities will prevent her from achieving the murder of King Duncan. Which would gradually lead to her mental breakdown. Regicide was considered a mortal sin in Jacobean times, one God couldn't forgive. Whereas Browning’s protagonist in The Laboratory sustains her feminine qualities this is reflected in the line “The colours too grim” in which she is referring to her dislike of the colour of poison and that it needs to be 'brightened' up in order to convince her victim to drink it.
CRITICAL ANALYSIS MONOGAMY The article ‘Monogamy’ discusses the conflicting ideas of the practices of monogamy and polygamy and their believed effects on the quality of life of their committers. The author directs that people now believe, more so the polygamists, that the idea of monogamy lacks lustre and the excitement they think is crucial to sexual relations and that it is incapable of providing fulfilment. She proclaims that despite the greater incidence of social and health consequences in the lifestyle of polygamists, monogamy remains condemned. The voice the author employs throughout her writing and the use of contrast writing indicates clearly that she is supportive of monogamy and aims to inform the reader as to why she believes monogamy promotes a healthy lifestyle as opposed to polygamy. Although she presents valid evidence to support her point, she maintains a biased tone throughout the article.
Euthanasia should remain illegal Euthanasia is a word with such great meaning but is often misunderstood by individuals. Some define this term as “the right to die” whereas others define it as “the right to kill Euthanasia is the act of encouraging a painless death or looking for the help for a good death. The act of euthanasia often occurs because long-term patients would rather drink poison or get shot by somebody than suffering their whole life fighting against a major disease. The term euthanasia is also known as mercy killing since it’s a way of ending one’s life who is not willing to live anymore.  This happens usually for compassionate reasons such as to reduce the pain of the ill ones.
Why Do We Crave Horror Films? We all have a dark side and demons we have to feed. People crave horror to fulfill the thrill they want when their lives are dull. On the other hand, is it because people have to escape from the bad emotions we suppress. In Stephen Kings essay “Why We Crave Horror Films” He claims we are all mentally ill. And he is correct.
She also refers to the murder of Banquo and Lady Macduff while in her somnambulistic state. Lady Macbeth’s motivation for going insane is ultimately to be free of guilt. Once the sense of guilt becomes to overwhelming, Lady Macbeth’s sensitivity becomes a weakness, and she is unable to cope. Lady Macbeth faces mental obstacles as she tries to overcome her guilt because her conscious mind is telling her to keep her secrets suppressed but her unconscious mind reveals her secrets to the Gentlewomen and the Doctor because it is doing herself no good keeping the secrets to herself. Once Lady Macbeth confronts these obstacles, she apparently kills herself, signaling her inability to deal with the legacy and the power of the crown.
Along with Realistic acting and haunting graphics, the plot left the audience anticipating the worst. In my opinion one of the scariest movies made in the seventies. The movie starts with a successful actress and mother, Chris, who is worried by her twelve-year-old daughter Regan’s behavior and change in physical appearance. After painful psychological tests, Chris finally comes in contact with a priest that believes Regan is possessed by a demonic presence. The top priest, Father Merrin is called to rid the child of the demons that possess her.
These questions and many more can spar an argument for or against Capital Punishment. Capital Punishment is an end all end and a justification for those individuals who willfully chose to take another person’s life. There can be the argument that it is immoral to take a person’s life, just because they took someone else’s. Personally, it’s a very striking contradiction for someone who has murdered multiple persons’ to therefore plea for their own lives in the end. In the essay, “The Death Penalty: Is it Ever Justified,” an admitted killer named, Joseph Carl Shaw, in an appeal wrote: ‘Killing was wrong when I did it.
