She is as duped by her husband, Iago, as much as the rest of the cast and she tries to amend her wrongdoings in the end by telling the truth to Othello although she is too late to save her mistress, Desdemona. Bianca on the other hand is women who I believe is in on the whole plot to ruin Othello. In my readings I think that Iago uses this women for his
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.
Here, Lewis questions her and her morals, Lucy responds positively, like there is nothing wrong with the current situation. The reason for this is that Lucy’s beliefs differ from Lewis’, and as a result Lewis is dumbstruck to find that Lucy thinks this way. Nick, having the same views, supports Lucy and in doing so pushes Lewis away to do the play. In a way, the play within the play, Cosi, resembles parts of the actual story that have occurred. For instance, the purpose of the play within the play is to show that women are not always faithful; Lucy and even Julie, who is found to have a lesbian partner she wants to keep true to, have demonstrated this outside the play.
‘Is Così more about love than madness?’ Sarah Smith Louis Nowra’s play Cosi focuses deeply on the madness of each character, what makes them mad, how they are truly insane, but throughout this play we unfold a side to each of them that shows the audience how much love is incorporated in their lives. It may not be the typical type of love as in love for another person, but it just may be the love they have to something they care about in Roy’s case the theatre and performing, In Cherry’s case it was love at first sight between her a Lewis and for some it is definitely the love that each shares with another person. Cosi is beyond doubt about more than love than madness. Roy seems to be the over the top, dramatic, mad man that he is. But through madness
The constant use of "I" puts us right in the narrator’s head and allows us to empathize with her. Ironic Indirection If we took the narrator’s words at face value, we would believe that her husband is kind and loving, that she really is physically ill, and that women really do get trapped in wallpaper. All of this is questionable at best and mostly dead wrong. This is part of the fun of first person narration – you’re never quite sure if the narrator’s perceptions actually reflect what’s going on. The narrator's tone also clues us into her character – her uncertainty and hesitation at the start of the story, and her determination towards the
Which is not an excuse at all, but now it makes more sense why she gets into trouble connected with witchcraft and involves the girls in it. The further we read the play, the more we get to know Abigail's personality. She accuses everybody, but not herself. The only thought on her mind is how to get Proctor's love. She does not feel sorry for anybody.
In ‘The Devils Wife’ Carol Ann Duffy’s presentation of Myra Hinley can be interpreted in many ways. The language Duffy uses is effective in showing the corruption of Hinley by Ian Brady, this effect is created using the short sentences and language which is blunt and doesn’t flow well. This effect makes it seem as though everything seems to be happening very fast for Hindley as if she's got no control over her own actions almost; 'I know it was me who was there.' this make it seem as though she is acting without thinking as though she has no personal control and it shows the corruption that has come from being obsessed with ‘the devil.’ The language used is very blunt, this helps the reader see how Hindley is drained of humanity because of Brady, ‘He held my heart in his fist and squeezed it dry’. Sentences ans sections of poems are repeated which gives the impression of Hinley slowly losing her mind throughout the poem.
In Act 2 of ‘An Inspector Calls’ , Sheila says to her mother, Mrs Birling, “But we must stop these silly pretences”. How does Priestley show, in his presentation of Mrs Birling, that she often pretends to be something she is not? | In ‘An Inspector Calls’ by J.B Priestly, Mrs Birling is presented as a character of contrasts. Throughout the play, she attempts to present herself as something that she is not, meaning that she tries to give a false impression of herself. Firstly, J.B Priestly uses other characters to reveal and highlight her the contrasting sides of her personality.
Miss Bingley is jealous of Elizabeth, she feels threatened by her and fears that she will loose Darcy and his affections will focus more onto Elizabeth. "When dinner was over, she (Elizabeth) returned directly to Jane, and Miss Bingley began abusing her as soon as she was out of the room. Her manners were pronounced to be very bad indeed, a mixture of pride and impertinence; she had no conversation, no stile, no taste, no beauty." Again in this sentence Miss Bingley uses short pauses in what she is saying, she pauses
“No, you two infinitely stupid male creatures: the problem of what is to be done with her afterwards.” (Shaw, 65) Mrs. Higgins shows she doesn’t see the girl as some experiment un like the men in the play who do not seem to view women as the same value. Having a women who respects and has morals for other women is very important for this play. “Do without, I’m afraid, Henry. The girl has a perfect right to leave is she chooses.” (Shaw, 84) This is Mrs. Higgins explaining to her son that he can’t control the young women that she has some rights of her own, and he is to blind to see this on his own. Making the role of women important to see that the young Liza Doolittle has some rights of her own.
