This value could only ﬁnd expression by individual choice, and when the individual form of expression was repressed into the unconscious, it received an energy charge that activated archaic and infantile dominants” (1971, para. 399), which that dominant choice for Katherine is manipulative and controlling Petruchio and by the situations that occur during the play and her speech at the end the manipulation becomes true when Katherine’s behavior as a woman is changed drastically. The Manipulation escalates to Katherine being manipulated by not only Petruchio but by her father. Katherine’s father favors Bianca more than Katherine which causes the manipulation to trigger a mental illness for Katherine. The struggle of a mental illness is portrayed in the aspects of the play and the symptoms show frequently due to the manipulation and treatment Katherine is receiving, until Katherine finds someone that is aggressive, as well as headstrong that is a rebel with a soft exterior like Katherine, but the person Katherine finds is willing to marry her for selfish motives like taming Katherine and making her domesticated like a wife should
The author establishes this issue well in the cases of Sophie Wender, Rosalind Morton, and Aunt Harriet. These individuals are undoubtedly the most developed emotionally, as well as the most assertive and genuine representations of present day women, shown throughout the novel.. Nevertheless their way of acting is considered “sinful” because they stray from the gendered norms, this is exceedingly present in Aunt Harriet. She is desperate to keep her child even though the baby is considered a deviation. Her attempts at tricking the inspector falls short as her own sister and her husband deny her pursuit and disdain her.
However, Johnny Taylor and the world outside Logan offers freedom, happiness, and adventure. The message to the reader is that Janie is doing what others want to make them happy instead of doing what is best for her. Janie goes through with the marriage and soon becomes confused and unhappy. She expresses her confusion to nanny as she states, “‘cause you told me ah mus gointer love him, and, and ah don 't. Maybe if somebody was to tell me how, ah could do it’” (23).
Jane constantly chooses to disbelieve that Miss. Bingley is trying to separate between her and Mr. Bingley. One example of Janes’ simplicity and falsehood in trusting her emotions is Miss. Bingley’s clear indications that Mr. Bingley should marry Ms. Darcy that are overlooked by Jane,“ My brother admires her greatly already; he will have frequent opportunity now of seeing her on the most intimate footing; her relations all wish the connection as much as his own; and a sister 's partiality is not misleading me, I think, when I call Charles most capable of engaging any woman 's heart.” (chap 21). In this quote, the reader can clearly observe Miss.
To save herself from more agony, torture, and pain, Katherine allowed herself to be tamed. Gleed refers to this in his article: “Kate enjoys a kind of triumph at the end, not only maintaining dignity but manipulating a bad situation into an acceptable outcome.” (Bloom 2011). This explains how Katherine surrendered her sovereignty to find happiness and harmony within her marriage. Lucentio, Katherine’s sister Bianca’s husband, mentions after Katherine’s spiel about the position a wife must take that she allowed herself to be tamed by saying “Tis a wonder, by your leave, she will be tamed so.” (248) Ultimately, implying that Katherine now views her marriage as a chance to find peace within her prescribed role as Petruchio’s wife. Also, that one must find independence and happiness within a wife’s role; not that women must entirely submit themselves to
Shakespeare’s play celebrates Kates wit and fiery spirit even while reveling in her humiliation. The play can be used as an example for the views of marriage in the sixteenth and seventeenth century, the play could be sued as an example of what a wife was supposed to be like. Gossipy wives in the sixteenth and seventeenth century were to be submissive and were not to undermine the authority of their husband. The Taming of the Shrew emphasized, to the women of that time, that they would always end up being a submissive and dependent wife. On the other hand 10 Things I hate about you is more focused on the ideas of individualism, dating, and trust.
This is seen in, The Wife of Bath’s Prologue when Chaucer talks about love being mutual respect. He says the ideal marriage is when the patriarchy is flattened. A woman will never really truly love a man until he gives her the freedom to do what she wants to do. Chaucer also shows a woman being equal to her man in, The Wife of Bath, when the wife asks her husband if he would rather have her ugly and loyal or pretty and him always questioning what she was up to. To this, the Knight says, “I leave the matter to your wise decision…Whatever pleases you suffices me.” (lines 377 and
No male during this time would have suspected anything similar to this of their wife, but the fact that Shakespeare even wrote about it hints to readers that Shakespeare may have believed in equality for women. Emilia also stood up for what she believed in and laid down her life doing so. After finding out her husband, Iago, was the one who had plotted the demise of so many around her, Emilia declared “Tis proper I obey him, but not right now” (5.2.233). Emilia knew she was expected to obey her husband, yet she was willing to lay down her life to alert others of the atrocious acts that her husband had committed. Not only did Emilia speak out against her husband, but was willing to lose her life in the process.
One of the components that may have been the underlying reason for the inconvenience Ophelia wound up in toward the end of the play might be her magnificence. This is portrayed in III, I, 6-7 when Hamlet says, "/that on the off chance that you be straightforward and reasonable,/ought to concede no talk to your excellence." Her magnificence is the reason Hamlet first became hopelessly enamored with her, the reason her dad, Polonius, could control her emotions toward Hamlet. Her dad needed this control over her affection either for progression inside the court through picking up the support of the ruler, or, if one somehow happened to think all the more hopefully, maybe Polonius' objective was just to shield her from Hamlet who, he accepted,
Although Helena had a strong Philia love for Hermia she betrayed her by telling Demetrius their plans to elope. Helena thought that by betraying her friend through telling Demetrius their plans, he would once again love her which was not the case. In the play when Hermia address her friend as fair, we see Helena agitated and responds by telling her, “Call you me fair? That fair again unsay, Demetrius loves your fair, O happy fair” (1.1.181-182). This shows how Helena is angry at her friend because the man she loves is in love with Hermia.
