That’s how close they were.” (72).
Especially when she reminisces in the final stanza about the time she was young and beautiful, illustrating her complete lack of confidence. Nevertheless, she is still presented as a foul character who threatens the reader, with the line ‘Be terrified’. The poem also ends with the line ‘Look at me now’ which has a double entendre (double meaning). It could be read as a cry of despair or, as a threat – if you did look at Medusa you would die! This leaves the reader feeling conflicting emotions for the character, probably similar to how Medusa herself feels in the poem.
Elizabeth Meza English 107 MWF Wilcoxen 5 December 2014 Scarlet Red As the fog cleared, she found herself still blinded—rather poisoned by the thorns penetrated deep within her scarlet beauty. Though her beauty was recognized for that flicker of life in her eyes, every time you saw her smile you could not help but envy her bliss. Deep down to her soul she was different.

Both Carol Ann Duffy and Dorothy Molloy convey a theme of loneliness through their characters of their poems. Carol who wrote 'Medusa' conveyed a message of how life has mistreated her and she is lonely due to in medusa's case having snake hair and turning people to stone and therefore she has enclosed her self within a cave, she conveys this message through a dramatic monologue. Dorothy who wrote 'Les Grands Seigneurs' had a message of how he distance her self from men and due to that she is is lonely but in the end gets married but has lost all authority as she is a female and in the past men had greater authority no matter what the status was of the female, she conveyed this through four stanzas and the the fourth stanza is the turning point where she has become married also she has written the poem in the past tense showing how she misses her old self and is lonely now even though she is married. I would also compare these poems to the world war one poet Siegfried Sassoon 'the soldier' as it also conveys a theme of loneliness.

Furthermore, orphans were also often treated with disdain and distrust, due to their reputation as “criminally prone” individuals, and were frequent targets of classic “Victorian contradictions”, that characterized the social conventions of Victorian society. Bessie repeatedly refers to Jane as ‘poor orphan child’ in her hymn early on at Gateshead. The development of Jane’s character is central to the novel. She learns to control her passions, as her integrity is put to the test when she faces so much injustice: ‘why was I always suffering, always browbeaten, always accused, forever condemned?’. The bildungs roman of the protagonist, contrasts the attitudes of the mature Jane to her younger self initially shouting: ‘unjust, unjust’, nonetheless coming of age made her reactions and opinions more subtle, ‘what consternation of a soul was mine that dreary afternoon’.

She had won many prizes, such as the United Nations prize in the field of human rights and the prize for freedom by the liberal international. Bhutto revived the “dream” for a lot of the female population of the country.
