In both poems gender conflict is demonstrated between through the emotion of betrayal in a relationship. For example in Les Grands Seignurs she talks about “little woman” which could show the great depth of thought about how she feels towards men. The word “a toy, a plaything” suggests that’s once she got married she has became powerless and feels like she is a toy, this shows her betrayal as when you get married you expect the marriage to be fantastic and not to feel like a toy. In contrast, Medusa also demonstrates this when she says “wasn’t I beautiful?” this Is effective as I can infer that she feels insecure about her looks. It also suggests that she misses her past through the use of a rhetorical question which makes the reader feel sympathy for her.
Firstly, when someone is totally devoted to their love interest it may be hard to turn a conscious eye to their imperfections and faults. She will be under the desired illusion that he is loyal, that he love her and would dismiss slightest suspicion of cheating. Idolizing their partner in their minds for long time would lead to a major breakdown when the veil of deception is lifted thus thought of being cheated on is too heavy and the reduction of self-esteem will cause the woman to be in large circle of uncertainty about her own personage. Furthermore, by returning to her abusive partner she is trying to prove to herself that she is able to keep them and resurrect their old bond, but mostly trying to resurrect her own self-assurance that she is still worthy. Forgiveness can also be a reason to stay, some people have big hearts and are easy to forgive due to kindness but that does not mean they will necessarily forget, the old bond will never be the seem and asking about the partners whereabouts will no longer be a matter of manners only but to assure herself.
The Friar tries to dissuade Giovanni from commencing the relationship despite there being little effect from his words. Annabella is harshly reprimanded by the Friar, so much so that she sees sense to confess to her sins. Despite her confession however, she is still punished grotesquely towards the end of the play. Giovanni does not confess; instead he sees his actions as necessary to deal with the problem that he is the main cause of. The final line “Who could not say, ‘Tis pity she’s a whore?” can be seen as directed towards her and so she is blamed for everything that has occurred.
With having multiple lovers outside her marriage, Leonce leaves Edna, which only adds to the solitude she initially wanted. Edna's disaccociation by her friends and family is brought on by her amount of expression and the rate at which she gains the knowledge of her independence. Due to her near complete severence she feels both alone and unfulfilled. This feeling fuels her to attempt suicide, which she is successful when she drwons herself. This is a interpretation of the feelings that society had during those times about sexual expression and adultery and also suide.
Before this line, Jordan remarks that she’s “never seen a girl so mad about her husband,” it’s more like Daisy was mad with worry that her husband was off with some other woman. That’s why she would look “uneasy” when he wasn’t around, because she knew of the possibility. Daisy, entirely aware of her husband’s infidelities does nothing to stop them yet she complains that she is unhappy. She has no right to do so seeing as she had the choice of not marring Tom but
Trujillo as this sort of attraction to Minerva in a manner like if he loved her. And if she leaves the country it is only going to do more harm to her family. (73 words) | “Dede is scared, and is angry at herself for being so.” (pg.77) | Dede is the sister of Minerva and during all of the situations with Trujillo and the family she is growing more and more confused about what she thought was right for the family. She started doubting everything in life. She started doubting her marriage.
Medusa is told in the first person as a dramatic monologue by a woman who is insecure and worried that her husband is cheating on her. The poem begins: ‘A suspicion, a doubt, a jealousy’ and it is this jealousy which has turned the woman into a gorgon and now everything she looks at turns to stone. This feeling of doubt resonates throughout the poem, exemplified in the line, ‘but I know you’ll go, betray me, stray from home’. Unlike our feelings towards the traditional monstrous character, this poem evokes empathy for the character as she is clearly distressed and suffering. Especially when she reminisces in the final stanza about the time she was young and beautiful, illustrating her complete lack of confidence.
The author portrays the tendency of people getting used to others desires and the norms made by society instead of focusing on their own. Lorca presents opposing points of view in Blood Wedding. For example, the Bride feels restrained due to the fact that she is forced into marrying a man she does not love and let alone be isolated away from society perpetually. In Blood Wedding, gender roles are reinforced in a certain way in order to establish distinct feelings among the characters forcing them to make wrong decisions which will later result in a tragedy. For instance, the Bride and Leonardo run away due to the love they feel toward each other; Later on, the reader learns that Leonardo and the Groom have killed each other.
His sexual orientation was even that of a female, expressing romantic interest in a male, wanting to dress up in dresses, ect. This gives the community a negative outlook on him and his family. The neighbors wish to keep Ludo away from their son, who Ludo is in love with and said that he will marry him once he grows into a woman. Ludo’s parents send Ludo to a psychiatrist. In my opinion I feel that the counseling did not help Ludo because he still had embedded in his believe that he is a female.
I feel bad and sad for the victims, because a woman can’t do anything when a man punches her. “Abusers often attempt to control and isolate victims in an effort to guard the secret of abuse and because of their jealously of any attention their partners may give or receive from family, friends, or coworkers” (Gagné 19). As the time passes, women will have bruising, bleeding, and scars that will never heal. A man hits a woman probably because he wants to act “macho”. He might be drunk or he only does it because he likes it.
