Cukita's mother, Mami, from "Daughter of Invention," by Julia Alvarez, is a round character. She is one way at the beginning and changes thought.

One day, the widow released Semillante on Nicolas, and the dog “dug her fangs into his throat and tore it to ribbons.” In other words, Semillante was used to obtain revenge, which is an established result of wrongs. The widow could no longer tolerate the anguish of knowing her son’s murderer continued to live without punishment. She was clearly wronged, so it makes sense that she would seek this type of
No, I cannot, I cannot stop my mouth; It’s God’s work I do” (875). That is until Mary caves under the pressure and accuses John Proctor of being the Devil 's man, so nothing bad occurs due to Abigail. In addition, Abigail tells lies, manipulates her friends and the entire town, and eventually sends nineteen innocent people to their deaths. Throughout all of the hysteria, Abigail’s motivations are based off of a simple jealousy and a desire to have revenge on Elizabeth Proctor. There are a few background
One of the first events that are seen in the tale, which seems to coincide with the Wife of Bath’s opinions, is the Knight raping the maiden. The Wife of Bath could have used this event to support her belief that even the noblest man can be corrupted, and there are no truly good men in the world. “This knight now ponders and sighs sorely, too, But finally, he said in this way here: “My lady and my love and wife so dear, I put myself in your wise governing; Choose yourself which one may be most pleasing And most honor to both you and me too. I do not care now which one of the two; What pleases you suffices now for me.”” (1234-1241). This quote near the end of the tale is used by the Wife of Bath to show how the Knight makes the correct move by giving his wife the power of choice; and because of this the hag becomes beautiful and faithful.
But in this play our heroine 'Medea' proves her words with deeds. Medea. I will make the three of them into corpses: The father, the daughter, and the loving husband. These bold words are followed by bold actions. Medea's speech reflects how much she suffers and struggles.
In Euripides’ text The Medea, Medea can easily be painted as the villian. She is a woman who killed her own children in an attempt to spite her husband. But, by examining the text, we can see that she deserves some sympathy. She has little to no control over her own life and has to rely on the will of men. And as a foreigner in Corinth abandoned by her husband, she faces even more challenges than the native women of Corinth did.
Revenge can cause more damage than the original injury. Even in old Greek days people used revenge to hurt one another. In the ancient Greek tragedy Medea, a young woman named Medea gave up her family, home and country to be with a man named Jason. As they moved on in life, Jason then decided that he would leave her and his children for the princess, a royal bed. This caused Medea to be vengeful and go out on a rampage.
' We killed him openly, ' Pedro Vicario said, 'but we 're innocent ' (Márquez, 49). Women were robbed of this criminal dismissal and instead pressured to find a man whom was socially worthy to provide for them. " 'She confessed to me that he 'd managed to impress her, but for reasons opposite those of love. 'I detested conceited men, and I 'd never seen one so stuck-up, ' she told me..." (Márquez, 29). Society told women and men alike to marry despite their actual feelings because love had no true value over tangible items.
The rights and social structure of women The play Antigone written by Sophocles, is a story about a young woman who breaks the decree law by burying her brother, and is being punished for disobeying the law. She thought what she did was right, even if it meant there was a consequence such as putting her life at risk. Creon, the recent new king of Thebes, and also the young girls, Antigone 's uncle found out that she broke the law and sentenced her to death. She is willing to do anything to carry on with her plan of giving her brother, Polyneices an honorable and proper burial. Since Creon gave their brother Eteocles a proper one, she believes that he is wrong for not giving Polyneices one.
She aids Macbeth, and both do what is necessary to obtain their goals. She calls upon the fates “Come you spirits that tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here and fill me here, and fill me from the crown to the toe, top-full of direst cruelty!”(1.5.42-25). It illustrates that Lady Macbeth desires on becoming the Queen of Scotland if her and Macbeth succeed in regicide. Also, this shows Lady Macbeth hinting at Macbeth’s masculinity and competence as she wants the fates to unsex her so she can perform the regicide by herself. Further shows how hellbent she is on becoming Queen.

In Martha Marcy May Marlene described her rape scene by saying, “The edges of the frame closing in on the face of a young woman stripped of volition, her head creaking along the floor as a powerful force behind her exercises his will.” In The Game of Thrones the scene was Sansa Stark’s husband Ramsay Bolton raping her on their wedding night. Bringing other sources that prove that other films also exhibit these types of scenes show that the author chose these specific films because it captures the awful experience women go
Monica wanted to come clean because she heard of a story about a boy who committed suicide because he kissed another boy. She knew the feeling of being shamed and wanted to commit self harm over something that was turned on her. Bill should have been the one in trouble and got all the attention for cheating on his wife.
