Play Critical Analysis In the play, “How I Learned to Drive”, Paula Vogul introduces two characters- an uncle (Uncle Peck) and his niece (Lil Bit) - who has an abnormal relationship with one another. Vogul uses the techniques of the uncle showing his niece how to drive in a literal sense, however it is interpreted as another meaning as well. There are many messages and themes in this play, one of which is family dysfunction. The play focuses on the main character, Lil Bit, as she goes through many difficult and emotional decisions. Lil Bit recalls memories of emotional manipulation and sexual molestation, all of which are tied together with driving lessons all from her Uncle Peck.
Having this level of Dominance towards not a daughter, but a niece, is very uncommon in the real world. So this establishes that Eddie Carbone is irrationally possessive about his niece, Catherine. A way Eddie is able to not be suspected of his incestuous feelings towards Catherine by her or his wife, is through Catherine’s innocence .Catherine is too naïve to understand Eddie’s love at the start of the play. She does love Eddie and cares for him but more like in a fatherly way. She wants his
Rosalind and Ms Gruwell both refer to other texts, Intertextuality is used as, Rosalind refers classical mythology when coaching Orlando, “The foolish chroniclers of that age found it was Hero of Sestos. But these are all lies. Men have died from time to time, and worms have eaten them, but not for love”, condoning that Orlando is foolish for exaggerating his feelings of love. Ms Gruwell however uses more modern stories including The Diary of Anne Frank and Durango Street to create a new encompassing identity for her students that is accepting and understanding of diversity. Shakespeare’s As You Like It and Freedom Writers both suggest that identity is not static and has potential to be transformed, however the elements and characteristics that define an individual’s identity differ between the two texts.
As a reader, I connected with all three girls in some personal level because the comparisons of our lifestyles and choices. For example, page 5 through 9, when Adjoua lies and goes to Bintou with the excuse of studying and there is that one person, Albert in this case, that goes and says “I know you are sneaking out to chase boys.” Adjoua has very over-protective parents, her father especially. But I thought it was hypocritical when he accused Koffi of ‘cradle-robbing’ with a younger girl when he himself was doing the same with Bintou, his daughter’s best friend and Koffi’s daughter on pages 23 through 26. I thought Bintou envy’s Adjoua and Aya. Aya for her intelligence, with focus to bigger things and Adjoua for her protective parents who constantly worry about every day and night.
The revolution between the renaissance and 20th century USA has impacted the society of the teenagers through language, gender roles, relationships and education. Ten things I hate about you retain the basic plot of Williams Shakespeare Taming of the Shrew. Both create a storyline of a father with two daughters manufacturing a rule of the younger sister not interacting with male counterparts until the older sister does. In taming of the shrew Bianca is unable to marry her suitors until Katherina the “shrew” becomes wedded. In ten things being a film about teenagers in society marriage is not socially acceptable at that age unlike the 16th century.
He says “when my father was turning on my mother, he was also turning on me because I would stick up for my mother while the rest of my brother and sisters would be hiding in the cupboards.” the point I am trying to make here is that after such a harsh and miserable childhood he has still made an amazing and successful career and life. Next I would like to tell you about Benjamin Zephaniahs performance styles because he somehow adds everyone and anyone into his wonderful work. For example in his poem “we refugee’s” he says everything as the first person which shows he cares about the slavery and feels like one of them and also in his poem “touch” he uses sing language which tells us that he wants to add the people who have a hard time trying to read or listen. What I am trying to tell you here is that he adds everyone in to his work which some poets may not do unknowingly which makes him an outstanding person and poet. I would like to tell you about his lifestyle now because in the
His mother, née Maria Kosiarowska, instilled in Gogol a morbid religiosity that emphasized hellfire and retribution rather than Christian virtues. The future writer's greatest attachment in his early childhood was to his younger brother Ivan, who died when Nikolai was ten. It should also be known that “The social status of his ancestors was purposely falsified by their descendants in the eighteenth century” (Setchkarev, 3). This played a great part in how Gogol viewed people’s identity. This gives you an insight into how Gogol was raised.
Both of Ashley’s parents were normally austere. Unlike her friends’ parents, her parents never let her do anything. Ashley was an autonomous person while her friends were not. Most of the time Ashley would even think that her so called friends did not even like her. Ashley was banal and benign while the girls had a reputation of ruining people’s reputation.
They are driven by instincts which are not within their control” (R86). Woolf elucidates that the character of men is to take power and act more aggressively than women, and this has given them an advantage in their excursion to becoming the privileged sex. Betty Friedman addresses the reality that fulfilling their traditional maternal roles of raising the children and tending to the household doesn’t satisfy some women, however, they are ashamed of this personal problem, lacking the confidence to enter the male territory where these women feel they may find something more meaningful. Women are limited by the inferiority put upon them by society as well as themselves. Women are kept from growing and learning, “education for women has become so suspect that more drop out of high school and college to marry and have babies…women so insistently confine themselves to one role”(R89).
Paragraph IV a.) Accepting the truth and finally Charlie can really truly be infinite. b.) He finally moved forward and let his parents know that he was being molested by his aunt 2 FennelMcGrew Helen when he was around six years old. c.) What this novel/ movie really taught me was that you never truly know what kind of background people come from or if you do but you just choose not to believe it and so in order to get through it you really need
