I believe that the critical lens that provides modern society with the most compelling view of literature is Feminist Criticism because it analyzes distrust and disloyalty among relationships, women being treated as possessions and shows the representation of powerful women. Modern society would analyze literature using a feminist perspective because most literature analyzes the relationship between genders and the powerful influence and meaning it has to the readers life. Othello is a great play to analyze with many different types of literature criticisms, but Feminist Criticism analyzes the plot and the main characters situation most. It is still so common to see many of the points presented in the book till this day, men believing that they are stronger than women and treating them as inferior. Even so women are trying to make their voice be heard and demonstrating everyday the vital impact they have in society.
In the book of Wife of Bath’s Tale, Geoffrey Chaucer shows the role of a woman being weak creatures while men are economically powerful and educated. Women are seen as inheritor of eve and thus causes
In what ways are women abused and discriminated against inside literature and throughout history? In many patriarchal societies, men have held authority over women due to gender. This power imbalance between men and women sometimes led to unjust treatment of women; men exert their authority over many women in the play, The Crucible. In The Crucible¸ male characters intimidate women to achieve specific outcomes and mark their superiority. Elizabeth Proctor, the protagonist’s wife, shows the standard for Salem women as she is submissive and does not defy her husband or the traditional role as a housekeeper.
but it is also sexist. Although Pam Grier, is playing the lead role, she was still controlled by men and she had to use her sexuality, in order to survive. On the other hand, men in the film used their titles, masculinity, and good looks in order to impress the women. The film also portrays Pam Grier, an African American female nurse as a prostitute, why is that? Again, women
Mary and the others would have agreed to anything Abigail would have said
Many males did not take into consideration their own faults and actions when it came down to it. Readers could take away from this novel how the world has evolved since the time period this book was written in, but how girls will till face some of the challenges like men degrading women in our world today. The feminist theory shows that many women feel that these circumstances and perspectives should be changed, and all humans should be equal. Everyone is at fault for their own actions and that is a message readers could take from this
Have you ever failed a test because you didn’t read something? I did. In 7th grade a test that I had to read a book for. I kept telling myself “since it’s open book I don’t have to read nothing. I’ll just look for the answers when the test comes.”
you want to grow up like a lady, don't you?'" (Lee 105). The statement is ironic because instead of telling Scout that it is inappropriate to use such words, she is told that if she wants to be a "lady" she should not. Which proves that if Jem were saying such words, aunt Alexandra would not react the same way. Another bias conversation in the book, is when Atticus talks about Tom Robinson and the case.
Throughout literature a character’s gender has played a major part in their role of the story. These gender-specific stereotypes exist throughout literature going as far back as The Iliad to more modern literature such as Harry Potter. There are always characters that don’t follow what society deems as their role and these types of characters tend to influence the story in a greater way. Inside The Iliad and Harry Potter there exist ideal male roles, female roles, and characters that don’t follow the normal roles of society. Both stories have their own definitions of what roles are suitable for each gender and in a way reflect the change in how the real world society views these roles over time.
Imagine that you have been trying something hard for so long and then finally just quit. I have always had ok grades here at Lowell Middle School. this year I started to go in the lower range of grades like D’s to C’s. But other years at lowell schools were not even close to years like this.
On the other side, if Scout was in Skeeter’s shoes she would be very confused because she would not be able comprehend what is going on, because she is too young. I now see more clearly that the discrimination seen in both the movie and the book took a different toll on everyone that was involved in
When I turned into a freshman, I decided to transfer to a deaf school for my high school years and graduated there. By then, my struggles with my writing and reading were improving by working hard. IN my freshman, there was an English teacher, Mrs. Copeland-Samaripa, a strict teacher I ever had seen and I failed this class once because of lack of my doing in homework and tests. I didn’t want to repeat the grade so I decided to work hard by studying notes for test and turned homework in on time.
However, my attendance did not affect my grade. I almost went to every class in the first half semester, but the midterm grade is not appropriate. I did not go to several last classes, but I studied and reviewed at home, that is also the reason that I can get a good grade in the final. I am so sorry for my bad grade
In the article “Religions: The Basics” by Malory Nye talks about female writers, inequality and the distinction between males and females. In the article it mentioned how the term Androcentricism assumes that the male’s perspective and experiences are the most vital and key point of reference. I agree with Mary Daly that the concept of belief in a male deity leads to profound sexual inequalities. The reason I agree with Mary Daly is due to the fact there is a lot of gender differences and that women are viewed as inferior, while men are more superior. It is surprising that in western culture, they can’t go a day without woman-male distinction.
No answer. I was filling out the online sign up course for my 11th grade classes, and I didn 't know what to choose. My peers talked about taking the
