And so the days went on, with the cold-hearted mermaid slowly blossoming into an even stonier princess, until it was time for her to venture into the human world. It was a simple tradition really. On the first day of her sixteenth year, the princess-to-be would sit atop a rock on the surface for a day, and observe life above the sea. It didn’t mean anything much and many just considered it a silly rite of passage, perfectly harmless. So naturally, the king sent his daughter off to the surface with nothing more than a hearty laugh and a pat on the
However, we also find out that she hasn’t been happy since the age of nine and has attempted suicide on multiple accounts. Plath early on highlights the difference between Esther on the outside versus her on the inside- it is the fine line between insanity and baring with the world. A scene from chapter thirteen goes into this very well, a scene in which her and her friends go on a beach trip. On the outside, though she seemingly hates the rays of the sun on her skin, Esther seems to be having fun. Not to mention, she only shows up because she was begged to- for her, it was another mask of happiness against the world.
In this case, does not have her happy ending until she received her legs; Ariel’s a mental disorder handicapped Ariel’s ability to learn how to accept her flaws. Also, Ariel’s infatuation with humans causes her to become a kleptomaniac when stealing from shipwrecked victims. The idea of having a princess as a role model for young viewers with a chronic theft pattern should not be accepted in society. In the movie Beauty and the Beast (1991), a princess named Belle is ostracized in her small town in France for being an illiterate woman. One day, her father, Maurice, gets lost in the woods and goes into a secluded castle for shelter.
After Blanche was raped and Stella did not believe what had happened, she falsely told her sister “…the rest of [her] time [she] is going to spend on the sea…”(pg. 148) when in reality she was just leaving because of the rape. Blanche often made up stories to escape the humiliation in her life. Within A Street Car Named Desire by Tennessee Williams characters demonstrate that how one views one’s self is not always realistic. People tend to lie to one’s self to make reality seem superior.
In scene six, Blanche narrated past events of her husband, Allan Grey to Mitch. Blanche told that the bright light had been missing during her inconsequential sexual affairs with other men; she had enjoyed only in dim light not in the bright light. Bathing Throughout A Streetcar Named Desire, Blanche bathed herself. Her sexual experiences had made her a hysterical woman, but these baths, as she said, calm her nerves. In light of her efforts to forget and shed her illicit past in the new community of New Orleans, these baths represented her efforts to cleanse herself of her odious history.
Deborah Ross, a Professor of English at Hawai 'i Pacific University clearly analyzed The Little Mermaid. In her research, she wrote that The Little Mermaid represented a new era in Disney history where girls like Ariel followed their dreams, a common theme evident in the song “Part of Your World” (Ross 22). Her friend Sebastian, the crab, sang the song “Under the Sea” in an effort to convince Arielle to stay in the safety of the sea (Ross 22). Despite this, Ariel still wanted to run on land and ultimately meet her prince (Ross 23). To put The Little Mermaid into the context of what was going on in society, Elizabeth Bell mentioned that the world on land that Arielle longed to be in portrayed the white male workforce (et.

However, when Ariel saves Prince Eric and falls in love with him, the King is furious and burns her collection of artefacts to assure she plays the stereotypical female role, instead, of trying to be a hero because it is an animus trait. The roles of gender as a social construction are evident because men want solutions to conflicts that arise. King Triton could have let Ariel live her dream life earlier in the film by giving her legs with his trident, though he did not want her to go near humans. The King is the only one with a trident, proving the lack of power women have because he can do anything and make the female puppets to please him. For instance, King Triton is furious when Ariel goes missing during the concert and forbids her from going to shore.
In similar fashion to above, Odysseus shows disloyalty to Penelope, but this time, by flirting with other women and leading them on. Odyssey flirts with many women throughout the Odyssey, but one that really stood out, was him with Nausicaa and even her handmaids. Nausicaa the beautiful daughter of King Alcinous, first saw Odysseus when he ended up on her island after his long journey at sea.
