Most likely, one has heard about the story of Pocahontas and John Smith. However, John Smith was not as loving and kind as he was portrayed.

In the drama “The Shape of Things”, Neil LaBute explores gender roles and exposes alternative visions of power, control and morality in human relationships. The drama narrates the physical and behavioral transformation of Adam, a part-time museum guard who is subject to the manipulation and control of a radical artist named Evelyn Ann Thompson. This essay will demonstrate that Adam is not responsible for his transformation, and that he is a victim of Evelyn’s manipulation and control. Gender reversal is one of the techniques employed by the author that allows the reader to perceive the character of Adam as a victim. In the beginning of the play, LaBute switches traditional gender roles by portraying Evelyn as a dominant figure and Adam as a passive character.
The motif of getting into someone else’s shoes is represented throughout To Kill A Mockingbird as the children in the novel struggle to understand each other and their world. Scout, Dill, and Jem try to use these messages of compassion in their world, but it doesn’t make any affect and they constantly see people abusing others because of prejudice. These messages target readers in the 1960’s and today, because we witness the same abuse of innocent people and understand that these actions are wrong, yet no one strives for change and the horrors continue. While Lee builds the idea of getting into someone else’s shoes, the perspective of children and subplots throughout the novel highlight that without acting on new beliefs and applying forgiveness, prejudice will pass onto the next generation.
