Jonathan Hernandez Mrs. Franklin English 11 September 9, 2014 The Male Overcast Widely renowned Toni Morrison, is an award winning author and a Nobel recipient; within her novel A Mercy (2008), reveals the effects of hierarchy from a physiological standpoint. She supports her revealing by first introducing a female character that comes to power in a male dominant world, then the character (Rebekka) strikes tragedy as her only male support dies leaving the female with a mantle solely made for men which causes Rebekka to lose a place in her mentality of social hierchy; as such she turns to God as a replacement which can only be seen as a replacement for the vast hole in her heart for a male representative.Morrison’s purpose is to give her readers of a new perspective based on the social stratifiction so heavily influenced by the difference in gender during the late 1600’s in order to educate the minds of those that predominantly view the gender social order as a petty argument for the wealthy.She adapts the reading to revolve around a general tone of consequence and repentance. Rebekka,inadvertently explores different forms of hierarchy because she is psychologically dependent and (consciously or not) she has a compelling desire to have a person higher than her in the status quo of Amercy which slowly drives her into madness. Rebekka’s childhood is, according to American Humane Association, one filled with emotional abuse. Rebekka recounts her father viewing Rebekka as a
Cunegonde could be considered admirable due to the fact that shes’s doing what needs to be done in order to survive like any othere women would have done during that time, even thought she is consistently being raped. Voltaire makes what is considered heinous and monstrous in to something that could be seen as a completely normal occurrence. What I find funny is that Voltaire was an activist for the rights of women yet he protrayed the female characters as being once beautiful and wealthy i.e the old women being the daughter of Urban Pope X and Cunegonde daughter of a German Baron or being a tramp in the case of Paquette which proves how well Voltaire utilizes
Greed is the downfall of all man. Who said this? We don’t know, but one thing is for sure, any wise man would rephrase this when he hears of literature’s most notorious and sinister woman. There is little doubt behind every great man’s success, there is most likely a woman, but behind the great evils of Macbeth, there was a woman too; her name Lady Macbeth. Known for her way with words of manipulation and famed by her sinister masterminding of great King’s Duncan’s murder, her legacy was one that took a cold dark turn; when her nearly in-existent conscience embarks her on a slow and perilous descend into hysteria, and ultimately her demise.
In my absence my wife, this cousin of mine, learned soothsaying and magic and cast a spell on my son and turned him into a young bull.” Each of the Old Man’s Tales has a similar quote. However, this quote stands out to me more than the rest. This quote is special because not only is the father, the person Shahrayar can most relate, being wronged by his wife, but also, this situation is even more unfair for the son who has done nothing wrong. This is a theme that resonates with Shahrayar. By using the details
Krishna transformed into Mohini to marry Aravan (Son of Arjun) in Mahabharata to fulfil his last wish. Arjun became a Eunuch for a year due to a curse. Om Prakash Singhal Vice President of Vishwa Hindu Parishad stated “Homosexuality is against Indian Culture, against nature and against Science”. It is quite common on our part to misinterpret things that have been told to us. Krishna instructs a man to be a karma yogi rather than dharma yogi in Gita.
This theme—the ugliness of society and its excessive desire for beauty—is heavily illustrated in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Rappaccini’s Daughter. Frankenstein and Rappaccini’s Daughter show how much humanity despises ugliness and how much humanity praises beauty. In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, society looks down upon Frankenstein’s creature solely because of its appearance. People who have never encountered the creature before are terrified of its appearance, and, therefore, terrified of it. The creature recounts its first
Mary comes from the right country, class, and race; her father is an English government official and her family has connections with the English gentry. Her mother has beauty if not maternal feelings. Most important, Mary feels drawn to flowers and the earth, a sign of some redeemable element within her. She plays at gardening while in India, an exercise of the imagination, even if, in a scene that is supposed to demonstrate her bad character, she tells the boy who becomes interested in the sandy garden that she is making to "go away! ", "I don't want boys," earning herself the nickname of "Mistress Mary, quite contrary" (Burnett 17).
She believes no one can dare stop her in her actions because if one tries so, she will insult him physically and emotionally. She is has great confidence as a queen bee and always wants to be the center of attraction. Chanel appears to have severe anger and is the most aggressive of all the girls. When things do not go the way she expects, she is freaked very fast. She is always puts blames on others for her failures especially Chanel 5.

Wilde’s plays reveal the fact that since the true intentions and emotions of women belonging to the higher class of the society often lie under the veneer of prudery and complacency, women are liable to be misinterpreted. To cite an example, Mrs Erlynne of the play Lady Windermere’s Fan has been severely criticized for her “final choice of brazen independence over motherly duty.” (107) She is branded as an insensitive woman who abandons her child for an illicit relationship.
