Soon after the release of his play critics began to notice the allegorical nature of the play. It was released in a time when the paranoia and hysteria was very relevant. It was dealt with by people regularly. Miller comments though that the reality of the situation was that The Red Scare was almost a more serious event in his mind. “Inevitably, it was no sooner known that my new play was about Salem than I had to confront the charge that such an analogy was specious -- that there never were any witches but there certainly are Communists.
Nurse Ratched, known for her strict rules and manipulation to get what she wants, eventually plays into McMurphy’s games which ultimately have a negative effect on her and blind her decisions later on. After Chief and McMurphy get in a scuffle with an orderly, Nurse Ratched suggests electroshock therapy, but gives McMurphy an opportunity to avoid the treatment by “admitting he was wrong” (242). McMurphy arrogantly declines, frustrating Nurse Ratched to the point where she shocks him continually until it’s not safe to do so. By letting Mcmurphy get the best of her emotions, Nurse Ratched’s conscience is blurred by her frustration, a negative impact brought upon by McMurphy’s arrival. However, Nurse Ratched’s sudden distaste for McMurphy didn;t always directly happen to him.
At one scene, Hendrix is seen beating her with a telephone, to which the real Etchingham disapproved of, stating that he never did that. This contrast Hendrix’s easy-going nature audiences have grown accustom to throughout the film. This brutally came out of nowhere and it juxtaposes the characters that had been presented. Ridley perhaps wants to show Etchingham’s vulnerability, in that, while she is a strong female, she is also subject to the social constraint of being a female. In addition, this scene allows Hendrix to be seen in a negative light, giving room for his redemption, which makes the plot more engaging.
S could be a possible suspect in the murder of Hae, Adnan loved Hae and he wouldn’t that upset to just go kill her, and Jay kept changing his alibi about what happened. Even Jay is saying that he found Hae’s body in the back of Adnan’s car, Adnan is ultimately innocent because Jay could have took part in the crime somehow and he could be possibly covering something up. What I learned most from this project is that people can’t trust everyone. They can stab them in the back or make up lies but all the lying and false accusations can make people be involved in crimes or tough situations. From what had happened to Adnan, readers can tell that Adnan couldn’t trust Jay because he was telling wrong information the
She knows she won’t let Lily be taken by Nelson no matter what she has to do. This introduces the idea that Old Woman Magoun might do irrational things to do what she thinks is best for Lily. Another example of old woman Magoun’s irrationality is when Nelson came to their home telling her he was taking Lily. Old Woman Magoun responded to him saying, “You can’t have her,”(Freeman) This response proves that her love for Lily made her brave. Nelson is an intimidating man, but Old Woman Magoun wasn’t afraid to say this to him.
By wishing the ultimate best for her patients, She shows that she does not wish to harm them or degrade them directly like an antagonist would. Bromden’s bias perspective, and Nurse Ratched’s caring intent prove that Kesey did not make her the antagonist of the story. Broaden turns to McMurphy for help and he brings more chaos than Nurse Ratched ever intended to endure. The nurse left after seeing her lack of control and order of the
Her only option left was to let Gatsby take the blame and walk away with no consequences. If Daisy had truly loved Gatsby, it is possible that she could have bought her way out of the situation, but she didn’t love Gatsby, and this is what led to him taking the blame. Despite Daisy’s clear nonchalance towards Gatsby’s feelings Gatsby still felt as if Daisy loved him, why else would he take the blame for something so massive, he wouldn’t have done that for someone who was only a friend. Daisy continues to deceive Gatsby because she knows that he will do whatever she wants. This connects to the entire book because Daisy is a deceitful woman, and the book as a whole portrays woman as unfaithful, an example of this
In Henry James’s novella, The Turn of the Screw, the topics of sanity and insanity are commonly argued among the readers. Insanity is the state of madness or being irrational while sanity is reasonable behavior. It is up to the audience to decide on whether the author intended for the governess to be sane or insane. Despite this dissension, the governess is insane throughout the whole story because she possesses all the symptoms of a paranoid schizophrenic, has an obsessive personality, and is the only one who claims she sees the apparitions. The governess is clearly insane because her behavior shows the symptoms of someone who is a paranoid schizophrenic.
The song that I am going to analyze is “Control” by Halsey. The song is titled control because, the singer mentioned that she has bipolar disorder, and she feels the constant confusion and frustration of who is actually controlling her state of mind. In the song many things symbolize her state of mind, and how she sees it, which would be like a “deadly disease”. The important symbol that is used in this song is “I’m bigger than my body, I’m colder than this home”, meaning that she see’s herself as something that is better than what her body represents or shows, while the other part symbolizes how her other persona can be mean or cold to people. Simply maybe because sometimes she would feel confident, standing up to herself at times, but also when the other persona takes control, she becomes cold, filled with anxiety or maybe even depression and frustration.
To be happy, Doherty argues, one must be neither too controlling nor too controlled; and sometimes the only way to gain perspective on one’s sense of control is to lose control for a while. Nurse Betty Black is a control freak. In the opening scene, she reacts to news of her infertility by steering the conversation—about ways she has tried to control her
