She makes a show of not taking her mother’s advice by saying things like, "Don’t be so old-fashioned, Ma […]. I’m my own person." This woman likes to think that she’s in charge of herself. All the same, she continues to look for her mother’s approval, especially in romantic relationships. She claims that she doesn’t want her mom’s opinions about Rich, but desperately wants her mother to like him.
Women are seen as being the cause of sickness within men when they fall in ‘love’ with a woman. For example the quote, ‘And now he is half sick with it and will go to the tables no more for lack of heart and never again even pats the bustling rump of the chamber maid in his new-found, maudlin celibacy’, highlights this point, as the use of ‘half sick with it’ indicates that the ‘master’ is sick, with love being the ‘it’ referred to by the narrator. This difference is, however, a small one when comparing all aspects of Carters short stories. The next difference being the forms her short stories take. Although the content of her books are classed as gothic,
Iago often refers to her as a prostitute, "A house wife that by selling her desires, Buys herself bread and clothes". She has fallen in love with Cassio, yet he does not speak of his returned affection for her due to his desire for status, and her social standing would affect this dramatically. She is the jealous partner in this relationship and expresses this when Cassio produces Desdemona's handkerchief,
Rather than just being rude, she obviously has her opinions about certain things and sticks to them. For example, when asked about Bogey Lowenstein’s party Kat explains that people go to the party’s “in hopes of distracting themselves from the pathetic emptiness of their meaningless consumer driven lives”(10 Things). In this scene, she clearly describes how she feels and how that is the reason she does not go out to be with other people or parties. This gives us audience an insight to how Kat has real opinions and being hardheaded is why she is hated and so considered rude. Even though this is different than the play itself, I felt that this was a good adaption of the character for the film.
She sounds as if she is judgemental about herself because she says 'my breasts hang'. She imagines her future because she reads her tea leaves and says that the Queen will gaze on her shape, personally I think it is to make her self feel better about the possibility's of doing this job. She says it makes her laugh, I think she is self deprecating. There is a gap between 'his name' and 'is Georges' as if she has to take a moment because she finds it funny, or it means something. The ways she has put 'they tell me he's a genius' because she says 'they think' not just 'he is'.
Torvald’s attitude toward Nora Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House” is a very controversial play that wounded every man’s masculinity and triggered their self-preservation alarm. Nora’s bold choice to leave her husband, along with her duties as a mother and as a housewife, caused a wave of criticism mostly, if not entirely, from the male population. In the 1800s it was unheard off for the woman to take full control over the situation, make her own decisions and most importantly to stand up and leave behind her spouse. Henrik Ibsen challenged the society’s mentality and shook the very foundation it was built on with his three act play. Evolution of Torvald’s character is shown from a man in control of his life, his wife and his household, to a man in front of whom his whole perfect life falls apart all thanks to one woman.
She thinks that she is far better off marrying him and she is very jealous. Mrs Sparsit wants to be part of the family, like a wife to Mr Bounderby, so she can still boss him around. But the awkward thing is, is that Mr Bounderby only thinks of Mrs Sparsit as a maid, and a useful lady around the house, and nothing more! Mrs Sparsit calls Louisa ‘Mrs Gradgrind.’ This is after her fathers name, because she doesn’t think that Louisa is worthy of Bounderby’s name. One point of imagery that Dickens uses is Mrs Sparsit’s staircase, where she imagines that Louisa is at the top of a staircase, and each time she takes a step down, it is one step closer to having an affair with Hearthouse, and cheating on Mr Bounderby.
By the end, they had each faced individual hardships and morphed into completely different people. Due to Estella being raised by Miss Havisham to torment the hearts of men, she was deliberately cruel to Pip. Estella belittled him, making Pip feel like a disgraceful “common labouring boy” not worthy of her presence. Pip commented on his first meeting of Estella, saying “she was as scornful of me as if she had been one-and-twenty, and a queen,” expressing that she was quite vicious and pitiless towards him. This practice resulted in Pip’s deepest love towards her.
. At the start of the play, Medea’s nurse has briefly introduced the plot, telling how Medea gave up everything for Jason and helped him achieve what he wanted, only for him to then go and leave her to marry a princess. She talks about how badly Medea has reacted to what he has done, and the bad state she is in. The tutor then enters with Medea and Jason’s two sons. The nurse informs him how distraught Medea is and warns the tutor to keep the boys away from her, as Medea seems to hate them and the nurse isn’t sure what Medea will do to them when she is in this state.
Both characters collide with each other over influence of Stella, Blanche’s sister. Eventually, however, Stanley is the victor, raping Blanche and sending her into a completely delusional state. To begin with we can see the way in which the playwright uses the characterisation of Blanche to establish the theme of appearances versus reality in the way in which she struggles to accept the harsh reality of her surroundings. When Blanch first arrives she is shocked by her surroundings: ‘Her expression is one of shocked disbelief. Her appearance is incongruous to this setting.’ When Blanche first is introduced to Stella’s home she is shocked and this establishes Blanche’s strong sense of class, and also that Blanche will be an outsider in this particular setting, never realizing just how harsh it is.
