Our film, Psyche, is about a teenage girl, Deirdre, who is being physically and emotionally abused by a family friend, a man named Channing. Channing has been sexually assaulting Deirdre as well as causing her to have bruises on her body. Deirdre’s family does not help her in her situation, thus she feels that she has no way of escaping her trauma. This is made worse when she discovers that she is pregnant with Channing’s baby, and this drives her to believe suicide is her only option to be free of her pain. The editing theories that I am going to be using in my editing of the short film Psyche are as follows: From Ken Dancyger’s The Technique Of Film Video Editing: History, Theory and Practice: Vsevolod I. Pudovkin’s experiment where subjects were shown an image of an actor, and the each subject was shown a different image in the
In conclusion, the poem "Rape" by Adrienne Rich is a riveting piece of literature that takes the reader on a journey of this unknown women 's life that leaves you full of sorrow and anger, both towards yourself and the society. When she says rape, she might not mean it as literally as one might take it in the beginning, she uses it in a more metaphorical sense than anything else. This poem brings into light issues that are still prevalent on our society, today when a woman is raped she is still asked outrageous questions, her character is still questioned, she is still blamed for wearing provocative clothes, going out late at night or drinking too much. The society might have come a long way from when Adrienne Rich wrote this poem but it still has a long way to go. It is sad to see that claims that Rich made against the patriarchy and the society as a whole almost half a decade ago are still relevant to this day and are not
Penelope however is put under scrutiny by her own son Telemachus when he tells Odysseus about the suitors who have been seeking her hand in marriage (Cliffnotes, 2016). Telemachus plants the seed of doubt in Odysseus mind whether or not Penelope is a faithful women. Odysseus kills all the maids who he believed betrayed him by sleeping with the suitors, this is another example of how prevalent sexual infidelity is in the Odyssey (Homer, 1967:22.213). Odysseus once again shows signs of sexual infidelity when he sleeps with the goddess Circe in order for her to return his men back to their human form as she had turned them into pigs (Homer,

Have you ever notice in the book The Color Purple that the main character’s doesn’t break his/her roll playing in the book. “The main part to this story is that she had been raped by her stepfather and he wanted her instead of her mother. But her mother had soon found out that he had raped her and she put alphonso out of the house for what he had done. Celie and her younger sister, Nettie, learn that a man recognized only as Mister wants to marry Nettie”. This is quoted from the part 1 of my book report.

Keisha is a dynamic character because she undergoes dramatic change on the inside, such as the grief for her ex-boyfriend who committed suicide, and is trying to better positively influence her mind. The main antagonist is in this story is Jonathan Hathaway, the 23-year-old track coach. He tries to convince Keisha to have sex, and after she refuses, he attempts rape. I can now infer at this point in time, the antagonist is not in his right mind, considering the fact he attacks a girl where he is forced to move and also has a past of raping other young females. I could relate to a friend in the story, such as Rhonda, that has an insight, but can’t do anything but support her friend.
