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.

The Conformity of Hester Prynne Melissa Cribb Baker College – Online October 25, 2011 In The Scarlet Letter, Hester Prynne is marked as an adulteress by the Puritans for having an affair while her husband is nowhere to be found. As punishment, she is forced to wear a red letter ‘A’ on her bosom as indication of her moral weakness and to try to make her conform to their belief that women project frailty and sinful passion. Hester Prynne’s conformity is in the fact that she wears the letter and allows herself to be alienated but it is only on the surface as she uses it to create her own identity. This is proven in the care and protection of her daughter, her philosophy, her work with the town’s people and the fact that she becomes a maternal figure to the women of the community. At the beginning of Hester’s story, she is led out of the jail into the town square wearing the red letter “A” and holding her daughter.

“Who weep for the waste of sturdy hips” (line12) is mentioned in “In the Counselor’s Waiting Room” thus showing that the mothers of the two daughters are criticizing the two girls in the poem. Typically, each gender must be attracted to the opposite sex; but if this is challenged by anyone they are censured and become an outcast in society. Evidently, in the poems mentioned above, being a woman and acting out of societal norms causes others to criticize the individual and condemn them for the choices they have made. Moreover, the literary devices and elements within the poems are quite different. Within “The Silence of Women”, Rosenberg’s diction is effective in that she creates an image and
Brady uses irony in her essay by saying she wants a wife when she already has a husband. This is ironic because women usually want a husband and men are the one’s asking for a wife. She was also being ironic by saying she wanted a wife when she could have just asked for a maid. Of course if she used maid instead of wife it would have defeated the purpose of the essay, but it is still ironic. Brady’s tone seems to be sarcastic.
