She has an inferiority complex and loath herself. However being the masochist that she is, she takes pleasure from being insulted by her sister who is acting as the Mistress(When Claire was insulting her, She replied “I’m starting. I’m starting to fly” Because those insults would heighten the fantasy of revenge for the mistress to be even sweeter. However in real life, her sadistic nature was curb as she could not kill the mistress just as they planned. When all of their plan failed (to poison the mistress) She escapes her reality by imagining herself as a great criminal, because by being a criminal she can be free from servitude.
The Witches are mainly portrayed as ugly hags who find joy in the suffering of others, at least in my honest opinion that’s how they are portrayed. The witches approached Macbeth soon after his victory to tell him their prophecy. The witches chose this time in particular because Macbeth would be drunk with the sweet
She explains to her husband that she has been objectified like “a doll-child”, and a “doll-wife” all her life and is done being objectified by the people around her (Ibsen 53). She has been patronized and controlled by society. At the end of the play, Nora realizes that prioritizing her duty as a wife will never truly make her happy and decides to leave her husband. Torvald realizes that her decision is final and is left with a slam of the door. Nora slamming the door as she exits symbolizes the new women she is looking to become which also represents the modern nineteenth-century feminist step to seek true identity in society.
In the crucible one of the themes was impacting false accusations. One of the accusations was how Abigail (one of our main characters), accused a poor woman named Sarah good that was a beggar. Abbey accused her of witchery by fainting and saying she saw her spirt. So when they told her that she was going to be hanged if she doesn’t confess she confessed. This shows how the court listened to anyone who “cries witchery”, Sarah was and easy target because she was the lowest class in society.
Overall, the sister is portrayed as the nemesis figure because she rewards Oochigaeskw for all her good intentions and later punishes Oochigaeskw’s older sisters for being immoral. When she is being introduced, Nowlan quickly states that she has two sisters who are quite abusive. As stated in her introduction, “The two older girls considered the youngest a great nuisance and shamefully mistreated her; kicking and cuffing her about and burning her hands and face intentionally.” The two older girls appear to be similar in character to the stepsisters of Cinderella. Unlike her older sisters, Oochigeaskw decides to do what she feels is right and chooses not to do anything negative. She went to go see if she had the power to see the invisible boy and when she found out that she did, they quickly eloped.
Thirteen books of the trials of Blair and Serena, it seemed as if Cecily could not write about anything else. But this book proves you all wrong. Cecily von Ziegesar took a normal story of a good and her horse and twisted it into dark horror story, but not really. See Merritt was a typical trouble girl: she had her issues and instead of facing them she ran away and douse them in a bottle of alcohol. Her horrible friend (Beatrice) was no help to her cause, and the hansom boy gave her the on and off feelings (Carvin).
Mary Warren is a character who generally has good intentions but does not have the bravery and uprightness to follow through with these intentions. She becomes part of the court that condemns witches and seems to be proud of it and enjoys the power that comes to her with it, but she begins to feel guilty when innocent people are being harmed because of it. When it seems that she will do what is honourable and just, she breaks down and proclaims that “[Proctor] wake me every night, his eyes were like coals and his fingers claw my neck” (119). Here, Mary is snapping under the pressure when she cannot do what is right by revealing the truth but rather being corrupted by Abigail and doing what lacks any uprightness and scapegoating John by accusing him of witchcraft, which ultimately leads to his death. Another character who is used to show the dangers of acting without integrity is Reverend Parris.
Emily seems to be the one who lets her neighbours see her public image. They see what she wants them to see. The first-person narrator is also a collective one, because there is always a “we” in the epic discourse, the narrator never says “I”: “people in our town”, “we had long thought of them as a tableau” and so on. Miss Emily creates around her a grotesque image: her house has a bad smell, it “has once been white”, the “garages and cotton gins had encroached” , she is very fat, her voice is dry and cold, etc. This story looks like a horror one because the main character becomes monstrous, a woman who kills her lover and lives with his corpse for forty years.
Actually, Albee’s characters like Mommy’s authoritative character that has no feelings and that is concerned only with materialism, and Mommy 's treatment of Grandma throughout the play highlights the abrupt insensitivity and selfishness of a society in which individuals are conditioned to think only of their own satisfaction. "I have the right to live off of you because I married you and because I used to let you get on top of me and bump your uglies; and I have a right to all your money when you die". In addition, she is very cruel and her cruelty could be illustrated by her mutilation for the little ‘’ bumble of joy’’ they adopted and
Austria was an enemy of France. Despite this fact Marie Antoinette was actually a teen idol with the other noble ladies. Marie Antoinette even had her own fashion line, it was everything to be just like the new queen. The peasant people hated her because as soon as she got there she caused nothing but problems. Angry mobs would gather around every place it was said she would be.
