She has friends who only belong to her social status, and later she gets married to the prince of Monaco. Another character Serena van der Woonsen is a young, rebellious, and very attractive woman who has the status of a celebrity in this show. Her dressing is expensive portraying her high-class status, on the other hand, grandmother who is highly respected and has high-class standards. However, Serena is less concerned about upholding her family name unlike other characters. She also dates Dan a less rich teen from Brooklyn.
This subtly hints about how Cher is spoiled and from an exceedingly rich family which Cher is very keen to deny. The characters Frank Churchill and Christian are obvious parallels because Emma and Cher were in love with them. In the end Frank ended up being engaged to Jane Fairfax and Christian was gay. In clueless Josh takes an instant dislike to Christian just like the book Emma. Josh decalares he will go to the party to keep an eye on Cher.
Do you know who my father is?” A long shot of a blinking, neon clown sign dwarfs Cher after she is abandoned by Elton; a symbol of society’s mockery and disapproval of her attempts to undermine an inherent system of class and clique. Emma’s high modality and contemptuous attitude when she claims that “the yeomanry are precisely the order of people… with whom I feel I can have nothing to do” confirms the inflexibility of class interactions. However, a change is evident in Clueless, where we see the power of notoriety and celebrity fracturing the boundaries of social cliques and class when the socially unacceptable Tai is popularised through her
On the other hand, the target audience for Lady Gaga’s “The Fame” would mostly be towards young adults of both sexes, as she sings about a fast-paced life style where she only cares about “runway models, Cadillacs and liquor bottles”. The audience would also include people who share the similar viewpoint of how Lady Gaga would so desperately do whatever it takes to become rich and famous, as mentioned in the line “Cuz we wanna live the life of the rich and famous”. In Madonna’s “Nobody Knows Me”, she sings about how she feels that nobody understands who she really is, and also about how she does not care about how the world perceives her. The main idea of this text would be to not let other peoples’ opinions bother you, as stated when Madonna says “But why should I care what the world thinks of me”. In addition to this, the idea of free will is repeated several times with the line “No one’s telling you how to live your life”.
Curley’s wife emerges as a relatively complex and interesting character. Although her purpose is rather simple in the book’s opening pages—she is the “tramp,” “tart”, and “bitch” that threatens to destroy male happiness and longevity—her appearances later in the novella become more complex. When she confronts Lennie, Candy, and Crooks in the stable, she admits to feeling a kind of shameless dissatisfaction with her life. Her vulnerability at this moment and later—when she admits to Lennie her dream of becoming a movie star—makes her utterly human and much more interesting than the stereotypical vixen in fancy red shoes. However, it also reinforces the novella’s grim worldview.
Nora hesitantly says, “It’s something I should dearly love to say, if Torvald could hear me… No, I daren't; it's so shocking” (1. 604-607). Nora in her drunken stupor believes that she is untouchable and abuses this position by almost revealing her true relationship with Krogstad to Torvald. After Mr. Helmer walks into the scene, in the following monologue we see Nora scolding herself for almost revealing the truth “too soon”, before she was in the actual seat of power. Nora noticing her new position of power led to her abusing it.
He goes on to talk about how much she hates her for being a faker and plans on saying, “…Marla, you big fake, you get out” (Palahniuk 24). This shows the irony that he wants her to leave for being a faker although he is just as much at fault. This can be related to men being angry that women were coming in and competing for jobs even though it was a completely reasonable thing to
The character of Isobel in “Precious,” by Nalo Hopkinson, loses her voice, one of the most valuable treasures in her life, because she never stood up for herself. Her marriage with her husband becomes a failure due to the fact that she permits herself to be his object of abuse for sex and wealth. However, the protagonist in “Jonnieruth” by Becky
The Bell Jar Essay Thesis: Buddy Willard Esther's ex, pressures her into bad situations and to do things she has never done before due to his character issues and lack of respect for Esther. Buddy Willard is Esther's former boyfriend. He's the kind of guy that, in a mothers perspective is always trying to get you to be more like him. And if it's from a girls perspective, he's the kind of guy that your mother is always trying to set you up with because he's her idea of perfection, contrary to what your idea of perfection is. No matter how great he seems as a boy, you know there has to be something terribly wrong with him to make your mother like him so much.
He feels it his obligation to protect her form a potential broken heart: “The canker galls the infants of the spring Too oft before their buttons be disclosed,” (I, III, 39-40) implying that Hamlet, as the canker, may ruin her before she ‘blossoms’. He does see her as an innocent girl but thinks that without his help she may become corrupt: “The chariest maid is prodigal enough, If she unmask her beauty to the moon,” (I, III, 36-37). Ophelia, agreeing with her innocent nature, willingly agrees to his advice saying, “I shall th’effect of this good lesson keep,” (I, III, 45). Polonius sees Ophelia as a mere object; telling her to be careful of her relationship with Hamlet as people may, “tender [him] as a fool,” (I, III, 109). From this single statement we can infer that Polonius cares more for his own credibility than the happiness for his daughter; he values his judgement of Hamlet over the love Ophelia may have for Hamlet.
