McMurphy, who has been sent to be evaluated at a mental institution. McMurphy, played by Jack Nicholson, rebels against the strict rules of Nurse Ratched who is in charge of the institution and tries to share his love for the world outside the institution with his inmates, who are treated there voluntarily. Jack Nicholson's overall performance in this movie is astounding, not to mention the superb acting of Louise Fletcher, playing the role of Nurse Ratched. Nicholson plays similar roles in many of his previous titles. You could say that a lot of his personality shines through in his acting, making it easy to argue that Louise Fletcher, who plays a very authoritarian role, might have had to face a greater challenge acting out her character.

This left Gatsby heartbroken and everything he did in his life later on was to impress Daisy and hope she showed up to one of his extravagant parties.

“Frailty, thy name is woman!” (1,2,148)- women are weak and fragile,they can not fend for themselves they are brittle and easily broken, this is what some people see women as and Hamlet is one of them ; some men like Hamlet are misogynist as well. But we can not blame him for this. He has been betrayed by his own mother, Gertrude. A mother should show compassion, love, and stick up for their child and she has not shown any of that in the novel Hamlet by William Shakespeare. For this we see misogyny built throughout many of the scenes and it gives us reasoning as to why Hamlet can not love Ophelia the way we ourselves view love.
The era’s “perfect woman”, Daisy Buchanan, is a bubbly, conflicted woman whose choice is between two men: her husband, Tom Buchanan, and her former lover Jay Gatsby. Since Daisy’s character was written in the 1920s, women’s characters were based on the traditional women of the time period, and many women then were still seen as objects and as less desirable than men. When Daisy is invited to Gatsby’s mansion, her first sight of him in many years upon seeing his expensive clothing, she is so overcome with emotion that she begins to weep “with a strained sound” and begins to “cry stormily” showing her true reaction to something as petty as material objects (92).

Mental Illness: Were They Aware? In the late 16th to the early 17th centuries, mental illness was often misinterpreted as witchcraft. William Shakespeare, a renowned writer, had a great understanding of this. He shows this through his writing, especially in Macbeth, by incorporating guilt, hallucinations, PTSD, and witchcraft for his audience. A private psychotherapist stated “William Shakespeare, the most brilliant psychotherapist who never once treated a patient.” (Berglas) His understanding for mental illness is what makes his work so in depth and it draws his audience in to the suspense and mystery.
