An Evil Wife in Macbeth The stereotype women are supposed to be nice, gentle and kind. In some other cases, some women are crueler than men. In the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare tells a story of Lady Macbeth, a ruthless wife who manipulates her husband to achieve her evil desires. Lady Macbeth is an evil woman because she is extremely ambitious, greedy and controlling which shows that her desires leads her to be a ruthless person. Lady Macbeth is extremely ambitious in terms of gaining power and advantages for her own life.
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.
You would be hard pressed to find a Noir without a femme fatale. There is usually some spider woman in the middle weaving the men of the plot to her plan. These women challenge male masculinity in Noir and are usually tamed by the protagonists or destroyed. In Vertigo we have Judy. She strings Scottie along acting like she is his friends wife and she is possessed.
Being a woman means her protective instincts kick in, she would protect her son and husband at any cost. Being a woman means she can provide moral support for her family, and be the gentle touch they need when everything goes wrong. Lady Macduff is selfless, she cares about others deeply, as in, her son and husband, she would stand by them because of true love, not because of some ulterior motive. In addition, she has no wish for power, she does not want positon, or gold, or anything of the sort, those things do not intrigue her, what is important for her is her family’s wellbeing. Moreover, Lady Macduff has this vulnerable air about her, she is defenceless against anyone who would want to do her harm because of her kindness, and so, she was doomed because of it.
They are not on display for the world; neither do they need approvals from the world to confirm their beauty and worth. They are your beauty and pride, and worth! You love them and teach them to love themselves — God loves them! They know how to conduct themselves because they have been touched by your elegance and fine virtues, and your courage to be their mother and not a “girlfriend.” A “girlfriend” will allow them to run loose and carefree, but a mother, by wisdom, will teach them in the ways they should go. You are not a mother of wicked counsel (2 Chronicles 22:2-3 HSCB).
In my opinion, being ladylike is a silent but deadly approach a woman might use to influence others and eventually reach her purpose. This ability depends on the woman’s intelligence in manipulating situations where cussing, throwing tantrums, breaking and smashing objects and showing anger isn’t required in this complicated and advanced process. Those actions are what men excel perfectly in, while women transcend in being ladylike. As a wise man once said, “If you can’t accept yourself for who you are then how do you expect someone else to accept you?” At last, every gender has traits and character which distinguish one from another, although changing those traits to the better may lead to success (going from ladylike to tough), yet not changing them and accepting yourself while learning how to channel and control those traits may lead to success as
Upon examining representations of femininity of Disney characters, it is evident there is a stark focus on the dichotomy of good girls and bad women. In other words, their behavioral characteristics and prevailing climactic outcomes in the films, such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, reinforce the idea that claiming agency and independence, is not only associated with evil but also posits a representation of femininity that women are discouraged from emulating. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is an influential purveyor of gendered images and this is observed through the charming heroine who fulfills the rewards of marriage as the happiest of endings juxtaposed with the villainous queen who is left without reward and encounters her ultimate
You give your friends and loved ones as many chances of a do over as possible but never someone who has tried to abuse you or your family, destroy you or your reputation, a person who tries to alienate you from your piers or tries to gossip about you. Beware and be wary. Forgive your enemies, be good to them but never forget their names. Believe them when they show themselves to you. A person who is a racist, judgemental, gossip
“Be unique!” “Find your place in the world!” “Don’t let others get in the way of your goals!” “Be your own person!”—Such are the keys to fulfilling one’s life. All of them sound so peachy and attainable if we just set our hearts to them. No one should want to be average or from-the-mold; it breeds unoriginality, and being unoriginal is a terrible thing. If you will just be yourself, all your dreams will come true! Hold it a sec.
No one was going to take it away from me… Of all the things that can be stolen away from me – my possessions, my youth, my health, my words, my rights, my loved ones there are something’s that in any condition no one can ever take them away from me, and some of them are My uniqueness. – I am unrepeatable.
