The reader, on the other hand, probably pities Jane after her horrible experience in the red-room, therefore this emphasize on beauty has to be seen in a critical way. As Jen Cadwallader expresses in her Essay “Plain Jane and the Limits of Female Beauty”: “the homage paid to her appearance is a detriment to the development of her [Georgiana’s] character.” (Cadwallader 239). Thanks to her beauty, others seem to ignore or play down the mistakes Georgiana makes in her life, because of that she develops into “shallow” and “self-centred”
The narrator said, “what she was doing with the paper—she turned around as if she had been caught stealing, and looked quite angry—asked me why I should frighten her so!”. She added the hesitations and the actions of Jennie to add the tense mood in the room. This also enhances the actions of Jennie too. Another example of Gilman using hesitation to enhance her writing is, “Jennie wanted to sleep with me—the sly thing!”. Gilman added this hesitation to directly characterize Jennie in the opinion of the narrator.
In the short story “The Possibility of Evil” written by Shirley Jackson the main protagonist, Miss Adela Strangeworth demonstrates multiple traits of her complex personality through her actions, thoughts and the way she communicates. A couple of these traits that are significant to her character are insensitivity and masquerading. Imagine an insanely insensitive person who does not care how others feel. Miss Stangeworth’s unpleasant letters advocate her observations rather than facts or feelings. In a letter she writes anonymously to the Crane family saying “DIDN’T YOU EVER SEE AN IDIOT CHILD BEFORE?
The next instant, back it all rushed again, with still a deeper throb of pain; for, in that brief interval, she had sinned anew. Had Hester sinned alone?” (Hawthorne 79). She notices other women looking at her scarlet letter in shame and realizes that they are in the same position as Hester. Hester is not the only one who has committed adultery. This could be assumed, due to human nature.
This caused Medea to be vengeful and go out on a rampage. Not only did this hurt Jason, but it also hurt the Corinthian king,his daughter and many more. Medea felt justified in her homicidal acts because she had given up so much to be with Jason. Medea’s nurse explained how the main character abandoned her life for a man she believed she loved, “Sometimes she turns to look away, to call out for her father, her country and home: all abandoned and betrayed for a man who now abandons her, betrays her honor and her love. She has learned the hard way what it is to be an exile to had given up everything” ( lines 29-36.)
In the The BookThief, by Markus Zusaks, the character Rosa Hubbermann appears as a cold-hearted, overbearing character, yet as the story develops Rosa begins to evolve into a loving and compassionate character. Rosa shows her strictness by the constant demands she puts on Liesel, but she is actually caring for Liesel by being strict. Rosa wants the best for Liesel and believes that being tough on her will help her be stronger later in life. For example, Rosa and Liesel are dropping off the wash for all of the customers and Rosa makes Liesel drop off the wash at the worst house: "What? Mama shoved her, you heard me, saumensch.
This shows that Brabantio believes that Desdemona will continue to be deceiving. He suggests that women have to earn their trust and that they do not deserve trust from their significant others. Women are consistently depicted as deceptive in Othello. For instance, when Cassio apologizes for kissing Emilia Iago’s wife, Iago starts to rant about women and remarks, “Come on, Come on.
Additionally, society’s expectations are mirrored by Higgins’s expectations of what the ideal woman should be like, which is quite disturbing considering Higgins is anti-feminist. In the play, Higgins goes out of his way to exclaim, “I find that the moment I let a woman make friends with me, she becomes jealous, exacting, suspicious, and a damned nuisance. I find that the moment I let myself make friends with a woman, I become selfish and tyrannical. Women upset everything” (Small book Page 48) So, at this point, it is plausible to question how a man who is against women can be the man who dictates how the “complete” woman should
Innocence is usually associated with youth and ignorance. The loss of one 's innocence is associated with the evils of the world. In the Giver by Lois Lowry, Jonas gradually loses his innocence as the Giver exposes him to many painful situations while in The Flowers by Alice Walker, Myop instantly loses her innocence as she sees something very terrifying and disgusting. Although others may not agree, The Giver and The Flowers similarly develop the theme of “Loss of Innocence” by showing how Jonas and Myop get exposed to painful and mature truths. In The Giver by Lois Lowry, the Giver shows Jonas many painful memories, thus, exposing him to many dark truths.
“Judith and Holofernes” reflected the darkness of psychological through the female since she had had to call the servant prepared a bag for her plan. It shows out the malignity of women that they are full of calculation and good in deceit, which is a way to reduce the female image. “Salome with the Head of John the Baptist” had also been a bloody artwork. It showed the severed head in the painting which gave the audience a terrible and uncomfortable feeling. The other reasons of Caravaggio showed the horrible scene in the painting
