Then Benedick also gets tricked “Benedick also listens to the men gossip, he stays to hear as said in Act 2 scene 3 page 10 “Benedick: (coming forward) This can be no trick. The conference was sadly borne; they have the truth of this from Hero; they seem to pity the lady. It seems her affections have their full bent. Love me?
The interruption used showed how intense and emotional Beatrice was; She want to make sure that her thoughts were heard. Benedick seemed to be so “in love” with Beatrice that he was willing to prove his love to her no matter what. Beatrice shows that she is a strong independent woman, but hates all of the boundaries set on women. With the metaphor, “O, that I were a man for his sake!” saying in context if she was a man, she would fight, something not allowed for her sex. She gives a play in Benedicks words he says “By this hand, I love thee” playing on that she responds, “Use it for my love some other way than swearing by it” Telling him to prove his love by using his hands, suggesting him to attack

She tries to ignore all the affections that she doesn’t want from her husband. As the poem comes to an end the speaker talks to the ladies from an experience that if you do such and such, it would make your more wiser and happier. A woman must remember her importance and cherish her values as a strong individual. “Value yourselves, and men despises/ you must be proud, if you’ll be wise” (23-24). She ends the poem with a strong inspirational opinion, that even if a man breaks you down and does not value you, you have to value yourself, and must be proud of yourself, and for that you will be
John Updike’s “A&P” demonstrates through several methods the struggle that unwritten principle can place on women in their search for individuality and personal freedom from oppression. Sammy’s thoughts demonstrate this very concept, as well as Queenie’s actions as an independent woman, and the unfair and morally unjust establishment of a woman’s place by the oppressive male characters. With these ideas, Queenie is clearly represented as an innocent feminist who is ultimately shunned by her male oppressors. Sammy, the typical male totalitarian, is very much condescending towards the story’s female characters, automatically assuming ignorance on the part of them. His lack of understanding towards women exhibits itself on the very first page,
In “Making Sarah Cry” the bullies judge Sarah and the main character because they look and act different. In the poem it says .”And so he gladly joined their fun Of making Sarah cry But somewhere deep within his heart, He just never knew why” this is showing that he knew that he didn’t know why he was doing it and that he could stop any day but he didn’t. Another piece of evidence is that “The funny faces that she made And the way she’d stomp her feet Whenever they mocked the way she walked Or stutter when she’d speak” This is where he is pointing out when she would do things or naming everything she would do that would trigger the bullying. This is significant because he is thinking and he knows that he does it for no reason. Even though making fun of sarah was funny but he had some doubts to begin with.
Kat’s lack of knowledge about who she is as a person altered her interests and affected the relationships around her. Lastly, Kat is lost as a person because she lives her life as what others perceive her to be. Though she tries to be unique and do things out of the norm, Kat desires the attention of others which fuels her unique and vogue persona. Her need for attention is evident when Gerald says, “Kat has a tendency to push things to extreme, to go over the edge, merely from a juvenile desire to shock.”(32) Gerald’s words reveal that Kat only lives to impress others, all while being unique and a trend
Intro Thesis: If Anaktoria would have stayed with Sappho, would she have written poetry like this? Desire The ancient poet Sappho expresses her feelings in her work. Her beautiful and heartbroken words send out the feeling of longing and desire she feels for Anaktoria, a woman who left her to find a husband. Sappho voices this feeling multiple times in her poetry. She says: ]of desire ] ]for when I look at you […] ]from every care ]you could release me (Sappho “Fragment 23” p.43) This shows us the desire she feels for Anaktoria and Aphrodite,who she prayed to after Anaktoria left her.
Antigone is put at a disposition at the beginning of the work as she is a woman trying to voice her opinion in a time where men were only heard. Some may attribute her lack of voicing to her arrogant attitude, possibly rightly so, developed from the sequence of events in the work. Antigone felt entitled to bury her brother; she felt entitled that her voice be heard. She went against Creon’s command and tried to bury her brother. Antigone scorns Creon at the beginning of the play during questioning by back-talking and arrogantly answering Creon.
