Sentences ans sections of poems are repeated which gives the impression of Hinley slowly losing her mind throughout the poem. Duffy uses language very effectively, in parts of the poem almost creating a sense of sympathy for Hinley at the same time as making her seem evil. When reading the poem Duffy’s opinion of Hinley is hard to understand. She seems to sympathies with Hinley in some areas of the poem however in other areas the poem emphasises how evil Hinley is. During the first stanza Duffy creates the impression that anyone could become a murderer and this creates the impression that she seems interested in Hinley especially since it is stereotypically men who commit crimes like the Moors Murders .
She does this in order to show how the obsession that the girlchild has with her own body was one of the largest factors in the suicide. Another one of the stereotypes that Piercy draws upon is their behavior. Piercy describes how the girlchild was told to “play coy.” This describes the societal pressure of what is stereotypically “lady-like.” She was “advised” to act as other ladies would act, and she tried to the furthest extent she could manage. She attempted to act demure and sweet, which was the only thing society allowed for. The term
The first such way is to ignore any legitimate concerns women have; the second way is to classify any emotion as unnecessary and “irrational.” Women get taken advantage of solely because society has considered them emotional, which in today’s modern society is often mistaken for being unstable. This in turn affects a women’s status in life. With this in mind, it is the status that will ultimately define their social mobility, “the lower the status, the more manner of seeing and feeling is subjected to being discredited, and the less believable it becomes” (Hochschile 173). Society has usually seen the lower class as unintelligent and therefore have their opinions denigrated. Even if she has a legitimate case to voice an opinion, “a person of lower status has a weaker claim to the right to define what is going on; less
Disability Revisited Criticizing misrepresentation in media is much like complaining that a desert is too dry; completely obvious and there’s not too much you can do about it. To voice her frustrations, Nancy Mairs composes a very blunt, matter-of-fact, somewhat satirical, essay scolding media for their portrayal of the disabled. Although her position is understandable, her approach in the essay is slightly jumbled. Mairs tends to use too many different emotions to relay information and her opinions to her audience. As an introduction, Mairs attempts to gain sympathy and personal connection with her readers by describing her physical disabilities due to MS (multiple sclerosis).
“ The syntax of this part of the story shows that the author is trying to explain the character of Prynne and then compare it to what people believe she would look like. This is important because what it shows is that Prynne is not what the people seem to believe. The sin committed by Prynne, had an effect on her that was very different then the effect of the sin on Dimmesdale and Chillingworth. The effect of the sin on Prynne was very hurtful but the way she took the pain was by doing well in society again and by working and proving that the Scarlett Letter was nothing more than a letter. For a large majority of the story, the Scarlett Letter meant Adultery, but as time changed the letter a meant able.
This would make some readers feel pity for Mayella as she is lamenting due to horrific flashbacks she may encounter, others may think that this is a cover up as she knows what she is doing is wrong, and she is trying to get the judge and the jury to side with her. This technique is used by Lee to make the ruler think and engage the readers. This view shared with Jem: “she’s got enough sense to get the judge sorry for her, but she might just be just – oh, I don’t know”. Here Harper Lee shows the mental controversy of the characters as that the trial has brought on
Her mind becomes an abyss of nothingness as she emulates the object she once loathed. Charlotte Perkins’ the yellow wallpaper encounters numerous levels to which it can be read. The most simple being a woman slowly being driven mas. Also showing the social structure of a family and how the male is the dominant being and what he says is expected to be obeyed. The yellow wallpaper can also be read through the eyes of phycology and the making of a mental patient, how a woman locked up and restricted from using her mind is slowly suffocated by her madness.
In addition to the struggles and pressures I am going to address the good things that the artists talk about in themselves or other people around them. When minority artists talk about their struggles they mention everything around them that is going wrong and instead of trying to fix it they just stay there and sort of embrace it. They talk about sex and disrespect women by calling them bitches and hoes.
Miss Bingley uses lots of pauses in her sentence possibly to show the reader that she may be pausing to see the effect her words may have on who she is speaking to. Miss Bingley uses hyperbole (‘a paltry device, a very mean art.’ To show the reader that she would want these words to be emphasized and picked up on. She finished her sentence with 3 very short sharp words used for effect on the reader to distinguish that she believes that Elizabeth is playing a game. She is saying things she is not quite sure herself of (that she is using a ‘device’ or an ‘art’ to win Darcy’s affections) she is trying to sway the reader to her view point by using inconsequential information. 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.
Once again this brings the theme of entrapment that features in much of Plath’s poetry as she felt she was trapped within her own body. Not only does the speaker refer to the bees being “dangerous” in a literal sense because they have the ability to harm people but she is also suggesting that her subconscious mind is a menacing, dangerous thing that should it be unleashed she would be in jeopardy. I imagine mind as the box and the bees as her uncontrollable thoughts that must be oppressed for if they were released from containment they would bring damage. The speaker’s inner turmoil is revealed as she feels she “can’t keep away from it”, she is all consumed by her dangerous thoughts as they continue to uncontrollably buzz around her head much like the venomous bees in the box. The bizarre image of the speaker curiously peering into the bee box and seeing “dark, dark” pulls us into complete and utter darkness.
