It was during the early hours, when Maisie and Mrs. Rouse left, Haynes, spied Benoit and the nurse locked in an embrace and then hurrying to her room together.

This theme of “ball-cutting” is prevalent in the novel as the majority of women continue to abuse their authority over the men, causing them to maintain symptoms of mental illness until they can get their manliness back. Kesey continues to demonstrate his

The continual questioning reflects that of a grueling and in part contributes to Ophelia’s later madness. Kenneth Brannagh has said that his interpretation of “Hamlet” suggests that Hamlet is aware of either Polonius and Claudius and Hamlet’s continual repetition of “Get thee to a nunnery” emphasizes his beliefs in all women being morally corrupt.

The viewers understand the significant meaning of social criticism issues in the stereotypes society of Suburbia through someone who is considered ‘different’ and ‘odd’. When Edward is first introduced to Suburbia, his ‘scissorhands’ are favoured by the women because of his hairdressing skills and creative artworks of the topiaries in their yards. But as events pass, the neighbours and the antagonist Jim continues to discriminate against Edward, finally banishing him from Suburbia. A variety of soundtracks and symbolic use of colours are dispersed around the movie to emphasise how it means to be different in a world that cannot accept difference. The main soundtrack “Edward Scissorhands” gives an indication of mystery and thrill, whilst another soundtrack “Ice Dance” features more of a romantic and innocent side of the movie.

The use of different wrong doings allows readers to view the abuse displayed in the 1800’s. However, many others and I can attest to the novel not encompassing the dilemma of abuse enough. The men, converting it into an ideal, romanticize the abuse of women. The men are envious that Janie takes her abuse so quietly. The concept of maltreatment is made to seem common in normal life.
