Wert thou as young as I, Juliet thy love / An hour but married, Tybalt murderèd / Doting like me, and like me banishèd / Then mightst thou speak, then mightst thou tear thy hair. And fall upon the ground, as I do now / Taking the measure of an unmade grave.” (lll, lll, 67-74) Unable to articulate the passion he feels, the exiled lover exclaims the chaos he’s had to suffer. He views the grave as a real option to end his life and to end this anguish. Despondent over a lost love, the forlorned new husband seeks solace in
From its onset with its first feature-length animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937, Disney has grown to become a worldwide phenomenon today. But over the years, various parent groups, scholars and film critics have accused Disney for creating shallow, stereotypical princesses whose ultimate aim was to find her 'prince charming ' and live happily ever after. In her article, “What’s Wrong With Cinderella?” in the New York Times, Peggy Orenstein expresses her concern over the effect of princess figures like Cinderella on young girls ' perceptions of themselves and how they should behave (“What’s Wrong With Cinderella?”). However, the later Disney films have gradually attempted to break away from this stereotype resulting in stronger female characters like Ariel, Mulan, and Elsa among others. Keeping this transition in mind, this paper uses semiotic analysis of four popular Disney films, namely, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), The Little Mermaid (1989) and Mulan (1998) to depict the influence of societies ' changing perceptions of women on the portrayal of Disney princesses.
As society has changed in the seventy-three years Disney has been making movies, so have the animated films themselves. While many young girls love the princesses and look up to them, others view these characters as negative role models. Disney Princesses have always appeared in movies as young women who dress in elegant gowns, have sexy bodies and perfect hair. They are always paired with a prince who lives in a castle, meaning that he has a lot of money. This description of what the Disney Princess is like; give us a big concern in the influence this image is giving to the little girls.

Snow White and Cinderella reinforce the idea that women should cook, clean and become a domestic servant for the man they love. When women who are looking for a distraction view this film, it is subtly showing them that in order to live their perfect, happy life they must work for it. That they are only worthy of love once they have served their “prince charming”, as that is what their fantasy is showing them. This representation is extremely harmful to women. They may view these movies and see that they are not these things, that they do not currently cook and clean for their lovers and they may wish to maintain a full time job instead.
Janie, at first, doubts Tea Cake loves her because of her age and then, on account of her fortune, fears he may have married her only to run off with her money. However, Tea Cake proves through and through that he loves Janie for Janie and treats her with love accordingly. Though Janie and Tea Cake’s marriage is not perfect, (such as when he beats her to show Mrs. Turner and her brother that he is in possession of Janie) she has found the “bee for her bloom” in Tea Cake. Willingly, unlike with Killicks who would have forced her, Janie works with her husband in the fields when she and Tea Cake make a home in the Everglades (184–185).

When it comes to a novel about witches, the Daughters of Dark Root has some of the best awesome magic you could ever find in a paranormal or magic novel. It has some great scenes when Maggie Maddock just lets go and embraces her powers that she had been suppressing for ages. All of the novels of the series also end with an excellent unexpected twist that most of the time the reader has probably forgotten by the time it is resolved in an explosive way. What makes these twists so important is that they make way for some interesting continuation in plot in the next novel in the
Though this is highlighted in the story with some instances of Cinderella forgiving her sisters and always been kind to them in spite of their torture, this is suppressed by bringing out the importance of beauty by transforming Cinderella into a beautiful girl to attend the ball and the Prince falling in love with her at the first glance. It cannot be denied that the Prince fell in love with Cinderella merely on catching the first glimpses of her beauty. Even the fairy godmother finds it essential to magically transform her ragged clothes into an astonishing dress. “Even the King/ old though he was, could not stop looking at her, and said quietly to the Queen that it was a long time since he had seen so beautiful and charming a girl.” Even the King is charmed by her beauty and would be willing to accept her without even knowing her true colors. All these events highlight the important of beauty over
that is the whole plot of the story) that I want to write about: the marriage scene. I believe that marriage shouldn’t be the most important moment, even though, in the Disney stories, especially Cinderella, marriage is the ultimate target. Personally, I think that there are so many more things that are way wonderful than marriage. Don’t get me wrong. It is an important and magical step, that I would love to take in the future, but I believe that these stories should also teach those little girls (since they are so mesmerized by the princesses) that there are so many different things they can accomplish by themsleves, things that are just as amazing as the prince
