Both Kalyani and Shripati are forced into a loveless marriage by her. It is a clear dig at the conservative society where marriage and son are the only things that matter. Through the portrayal of the second generation pair, Kalyani and Shripati, Deshpande depicts the predicament of women who are confined in the framework of traditional marriage and lead a life of self-denial and suffering. Kalyani’s life is an example of forced incompatible arranged marriage in which a woman has to suffer endlessly. Even if marriage fails in giving happiness of any kind to woman, it is preferred because it gives a security and a sense of dignity to woman in society.

She was replaced by an enlightened, determined and more useful member of society who tries to make a positive contribution to help her husband in his difficulty. These days modern life has thrown countless examples of women struggling for their identities and thus emerging in the same way as Nora did. Ibsen though in his own ways, is probably the playwright to bring this change noticeable in their respective plays. Ibsen showed a woman who left her husband simply on the grounds that he had treated her as a doll and not as a responsible human being. Nora is depicted until the end of the play as the helpless, mindless fool who wastes her husband’s hard earned money.
John “had recently married a wife whom he loved more than his life” (Chaucer, “The Miller’s Tale” 35-36). Since this carpenter is the most sentimentally involved with Alisoun, he ends up the most betrayed and embarrassed by her disloyalty. Conversely, Alisoun doesn’t give Absolom any reassurance that his infatuation is requited, so he does not fall into the trap of falling for her. Consequently, Absolom leaves the situation feeling rejected, but not truly dejected because his connection with Alisoun was only in his dreams. Meanwhile, Nicholas begs her for sex by yelling “sweetheart, love me right away or I’ll die, so help me God!” (Chaucer, “The Miller’s Tale” 94-95).

The effect of irony in Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour” enhances the protagonist’s situation, it introduces the effect of the foreshadowing, and indirectly characterizes the protagonist.

What did it matter!” shows that although Mrs. Mallard was married, she had not always loved her husband (8).
“A Doll’s House” by Henrik Ibsen is a feminist play, as shown by demonstrating the risks of defying societal norms and the burden of gender rules through many of his characters. In Ibsen’s opinion, “A Doll’s House” was primarily about the human condition. However, humanism and feminism are both centered around people and their values. Women were disregarded as human beings at the time of “A Doll’s House” publication. “Ibsen has been resoundingly saved from feminism, or, as it was called in his day, “the woman question”(Templeton).

‘Plath perceives the domestic life as restrictive and a complete obliteration of her own self-worth’. Using ideas of feminist theory from the critical anthology to inform your argument, to what extent do you agree with this view? As a female poet subject to 1960’s patriarchy, Plath’s domestic and professional claustrophobia were inevitable. Married to the successful poet, Ted Hughes, she was incessantly reminded of the artistic restraints assigned to equally talented females. Plath’s poetry, looking particularly at her ‘Collected Poems’, illustrates the consequential disorientation and loss of identity caused by such patriarchal dominance, demonstrating sentiments of disgust as she is forced to adopt certain gender stereotypes in ‘Morning Song’ (1961).
The language used here shows how bitter she is about marrying a hideous man, instead of the “handsome, broad-chested Montague.” One can note that Lady Capulet never says a positive word about the man that she married, yet speaks more highly of the father of the man her daughter married. A reader might find it interesting how paralleled Juliet and her mother are. Had Lady Capulet chosen love, she could have been dead like Juliet. Had Juliet chosen duty, she could have ended up in her mother’s shoes, married to a man that she doesn’t like or

In “The Story of an Hour” we are reminded that “women should attach themselves to their husbands,” in this case Louise did not do this with her husband ( Wan 167). Louise would “break the shackles of the patriarchal culture as she comprehends that she can “live for herself” instead of living the life that her husband “sanctions for her,” she realizes in this quote that she no longer belongs to anybody but herself (Jamil 219). In “The Story of Hour” Kate Chopin not only shows us how women were treated and how women were “controlled” by their husbands, but also that this story was written from a feminist point of view and “can be also be read as a criticism of
