“Before the Trial of this prisoner, several of her own Children had frankly and fully confessed, not only that they were Witches themselves, but that this their Mother had made them so.” Both were severely charged and threatened with hanging and although one is placed in the past and one after the act of discrimination, Martha is reported as an insane fanatic of witchcraft, accused by her own children who clearly had problems, as Hester, a normal woman, trapped by society faces the same punishment. Seeing that were both charged equally shows extreme discrimination towards Hester that she is forced to deal with. By relating the two excerpts, it becomes clear that Hester’s struggle of discrimination against logical women is a severe
The first use of symbolism is used at Gateshead and is how the name Gateshead symbolises how Jane’s aunt kept her “gated” or separated from the rest of the family. It is the beginning of all the problems that she encounters and represents the time in her life when she is imprisoned, disrespected, and belittled. Another is the red room where she is kept as punishment for acting out against John. Over time it began to represent her fears and struggles of finding love, happiness, and freedom. Also symbolic of how she is trapped by gender and social class.
But, this play has shown me the flaws in that society as the author depicts them such as abortion and homosexuality. I found the play to be somewhat difficult to follow along with because there were so many characters that were speaking especially in the first scene. The first scene depicts a chaotic business area as the clerks were working and the numbers are called out at a high speed. When we watched the video of the first scene in class, it made more sense to me. I loved the different ways the first scene is shown in the live play as the chaos is heard through the sounds and constant movement.
Even though Queen Elizabeth II has had the authority and power over the nation for a long time, she tried to change her mind when her position as a queen was threatened by the nation, who were upset with the royal family ignoring the death of princess Diana. While walking, Queen Mother Elizabeth kept emphasizing the nobility and dignity of Queen Elizabeth II. In her view, her daughter, Queen Elizabeth II, is the greatest asset that the institution has. Since born as a member of loyal family cannot be learnable, I assume this scene and Queen Mother Elizabeth as an example of traits-based theory. Behavior based theory is regarded as learnable leadership style, unlike trait based theory.
The War of the Roses was an English civil conflict over the claim of the throne. On one side, there were the Lancastrians whom Henry VII was part of, and on the other there were the Yorkists. To end the war, Henry VII married Elizabeth of York, thus united the two factions and began
While her daughter is being slapped she simply observes and does not even slightly intervene to protect her only child who is begging on her knees. The Nurse, however, demonstrates her true love for Juliet as she steps in and confronts Capulet. The Nurse says, “God in heaven bless her” while pleading, “You are to blame, my lord, to rate her so” (3.5 176, 177). Such a statement to the person that has allowed her to stay long after Juliet finished breastfeeding is one that could cost her the loss of a second child. The Nurse continuously claims that Juliet is like her daughter, and defying Lord Capulet could lead her too far worse consequences than what Juliet gets for defying him.

Oliver begins her poem by using the rhetorical strategy of emotion. Emotion is a very simple, yet complex thing, that everyone has the ability to relate to. She appeals to the audience through emotion by saying that although “the voices around you kept shouting their bad advice” (Oliver) and “the whole house began to tremble” (Oliver) she kept
She goads Macbeth and convinces him to murder King Duncan. During this period of time Lady Macbeth’s masculine traits are at their peak, as she states “That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,” (Act 1, Scene). This phrase is vital in Lady Macbeth’s character development as it emphasizes the masculinity that she portrays. As contemporary audiences are much more open minded about gender equality, are the dominance of Lady Macbeth in the relationship between her and Macbeth is not surprising.

One of the main things she incorporates throughout her speech is hyperbole. She uses this exaggeration in a way that makes sure every single person who leaves the convention after her speech will know exactly what her message was. The problem Stanton was discussing was very serious and many were brushing it off like it doesn 't matter. Woman suffrage was not being taken seriously by males. In her speech Stanton uses hyperbole to demand to be heard.
Queen Elizabeth also advanced England’s economy, mostly by engaging in a wider world market. Under her rule, two of the most famous British trading monopolies developed: The Levant Company and the British East India Company. The Levant Company traded in the Ottoman Empire, and rivaled and surpassed the Dutch tea trade companies, boosting the English economy. The goal of the British East India Company was to control spice trade with the East Indies and eliminate any competition with the Spanish and Portuguese companies. British merchants sailed to the Far East and the Ottoman Empire to gather spices for tea and seasoning and quickly made successful trade businesses that contributed to the growing English economy.

I have found a television show that outshines all others. Reign is a show that has kept my attention whenever I have free time. It is loosely based on actual events in the 1500s. It shows how female power was viewed and the role in which women were forced to play in the time-period. It also has a love story that shows how imperfect relationships can be.
