Over the course of Shakespeare's, Romeo and Juliet; Juliet has proved herself to be a round dynamic character. In the beginning of the play, was a more independent character and thought about herself only and not another individual. When she met Romeo and married him all her actions were to please Romeo and not herself entirely. Before she would put herself first but not that she is putting Romeo before everything shows how she has changed proving she is a dynamic character. She went against her better judgement and took the potion that could have been actually lethal just to be with Romeo even though they haven't known each other for long.
Does Casablanca have a political message? I could agree with both, the reason why i could do so was because maybe the one who had the idea of the movie was touched by what was happening in those years and felt that creating a movie within that era could be of a symbol. I also think that the director was trying to tell people or show them that this is what life looks like, giving them time to think of what 's really happening. 2. In the scene where Ilsa tries to get Rick to give her the papers, there are several shots that focus on Ilsa as she tells Rick the truth about Paris (time code 1:23: 27).
As Launius mentions the play focuses more on the “gendered aspects of the American Dream”, meaning what does a successful women or man look like in a capitalist society (Launius). One thing I admired about the film is how Anna distinguished herself from these “gendered aspects”, she was not ashamed of who she was nor what she looked like, on the contrary her mother was, yet this did not stop Anna from achieving her goals (Launius). At the end of the play, it is confirmed that Anna went to college and became the journalist she always hoped to be. Not only was
Despite the movie’s dramatic rendition of real-life events and ideas in regards to women in crime, it gets the point across by using Roxie and Velma’s femininity win the “innocent” verdict. Although it only displayed a one-sided and underdeveloped prohibitionist argument, it was still factual in its portrayal, and the prohibition movement is vital to her case. The final topic, women empowerment, had the most authentic yet subtle portrayal from the symbolism of the puppet in “They Both Reached For the Gun” to the setting if Chicago. Each of the topics can be considered, to some extent, history. Although they’re understated, the themes are still there and contribute a historical side to the film that is important to the plot and
I personally believe that stereotype is an issue of mainstream media in the United States, especially in TV shows and movies. After reading “Here Comes the Hillbilly, Again” by Michelle Dean, and watching The Beverly Hillbillies - Getting Settled, I agree with Dean’s claim that the film producer used hillbilly stereotype to create comedic effect for the sitcom. For audience, this episode is entertaining because it has many humorous situations that exceed audience’s imagination. However, it also creates a stereotype of Southern people through the images of the Clampett family. Although they plan to live in Beverly Hills, an area for wealthy people, their old car, their old things, and their poor physical appearance do not look like millionaires.

In her diary, Martha never directly expresses any opinion about the social hierarchy of the society, but she does express her frustration about male doctors complicating her job as a healer (248). In Martha’s Maine, the powerful men were almost above the law and the trial of Mrs. Foster’s rape shows how hard it was for women to take any action against their abusers. In that men dominated society, as a midwife, Martha’s testimony about the paternity of a child was important as it was common practice to ask “unwed mothers to name the father of their child during pregnancy” (149). It was based on an old English law as were many other laws in early America. Despite being a citizen of the USA, Martha were not able to vote, serve in jury or acquire property for herself.
In Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck there are many themes but the main one is brotherhood. On page 22 of the story Of Mice and Men George says,“He 's my...cousin” The boss of the job that George and Lennie are applying for is questioning whether George and Lennie are traveling together because that doesn 't happen that often.
