In the same scene, Juliet demonstrates her transition to womanhood by breaking ties with her family and re-stating her loyalties to Romeo. Although “maturing woman” could seem redundant or repetitive, the fact that they are closely linked creates the idea that, throughout the play, this ‘growing aspect’ is the most important facet of her person. “Maturation” encompasses her change, from the beginning of the play until the end, as well as her sneakiness, and clever way with words, as well as leads into the other points. “Woman” reinforces the idea of maturing, and also puts into perspective Juliet’s place in society as a teenage girl, giving reason for why she did what she did, first changing her loyalties, as well as how she took matters into her own hands. Once analysing the further parts of the play, it’s almost laughable to think of Juliet as some wilting flower.
Being an active viewer while watching a performance allows yourself to understand the meaning behind different aspects of the performance in your own interpretations of the choreographers message. While watching Igor Stravinsky’s piece titled Rite of Spring, the opening dance resembles the theme of The Scarlett Letter novel. During the dance, I saw some movements and space recognition that represented a burden of this “letter” an individual dancer with corresponding a with the other dancers in the piece who symbolized a society. The “letter” in the novel was a woman who had a child out of wedlock with the society around her being angry with her action. This was a burden upon the women because this aspect wasn’t appropriate to others in 1850’s when the novel
Two of her most famous works that were written about her personal life. Those works are the Claudine series, which was about her life as a young school girl, her move throughout France, her love life, and her friendships, and the other work is called Two Memories of Sido, from the collection of her stories called Earthly Paradise, which was about her mother’s illness and how it affected their family. Colette’s personal experiences affected her writing causing her to write the Claudine series. The series itself was originally translated from Colette’s diary, filled with many of her life experiences. For example in Claudine at School Colette is writing about her life as a young girl in school.
This paper analyzes the song “Coat of Many Colors” written by and sung by Dolly Parton. Born on January 19, 1946 the fourth child of 12 to a farmer and a stay at home mother. Given this time period and her father’s profession, her family grew up “dirt poor” (Zahn, ?) on a farm and experienced the struggles faced by countless others during this era. Motivated by an experience in her youth, she wrote a song about when her mother stitched together a coat for her to wear from pieces of rags they had been given and the other kids laughing at her.
She is saying that she carries herself as if she is rich and she dances as if she knows she is attractive. Throughout the poem, Angelou targets specific things people have said or done such as the following: harsh words, shame from history, rude stares, hateful remarks, bitter attitudes, etc. Yet, she expresses a theme of overcoming in confidence because everytime she picks out a negative about society, she exaggerates a truth about herself in a positive way. This poem tackles oppression but it also shows that confidence in oneself has the ability to propel one into overcoming. My personal reaction is one of humbling
Jane Austen wrote about two main characters that broke societal roles that should have been upheld. She put her personal beliefs of how Darcy broke out of this expectation when meeting the Bennets. Darcy was originally characterized as too prideful, based on his approachable manner at the dance, therefore giving a negative first impression to the Bennet family. Nonetheless, Elizabeth eventually chooses to let herself form her own opinion of Darcy. She also let herself open up to the idea of having a new perspective of him.
Gypsy is a masterpiece musical produced by the production team; lyrics by Stephen Sondhiem, a book by Arthur Laurents, and a music by Jule Styne. The whole story is about a stage mother, her name is Rose, with two daughters Louise and June. The main character is Rose and she continues this bossy character with carelessly her sensational daughters. She has tried to show that everything she did is for children with a dream being a star, however, the result turns upside down because it is not children’s willingness. She did it just to fulfill her own dream.
Well observed in our reality as well, this phenomenon has to do with trying to force a certain individual into a stereotype which in the long term might result in this person subconsciously “living up” to those statements i.e. they will gradually start behaving the way their peers falsely perceived or accused them of doing. This is also indicative of the indisputable presence of sexism in Salem. Even after John Proctor confesses about his sin in act III, this only adds to Abigail’s loathsome personality. Seventeen centuries later, the female part of the society still bears the heavy weight of the original sin.
1960’s Feminism Like I mentioned earlier, “The Help” seems to be an imperfect depiction of the 1960’s so far. And again, feminism was shown in the most stereotypical ways. Yes, it was very empowering to see how women can be liberated, but it was very cliché, feminism could have been shown in much more meaningful interesting ways. A hint of feminism in The Help may be most evident in post-college Skeeter, the young woman who questions restrictions placed on her by society 's traditions. Her Southern socialite best friends have conformed to expectations by marrying, having children (or trying to) and even questioning why Skeeter stayed four years at Ole Miss to finish her degree, while they were dropping out of school.
The main character of the novel, The Bluest Eye, who is Pecola Breedlove, loves Shirley Temple and she believes that beauty is being white and that she is ugly. Pecola move back in with her family, with her father who is a drunk, her mother is distant, and they usually fight with each other. Pecola has a brother names Sammy who often runs away from home. Pecola believes that if she is gifted with blue eyes, she will be accepted by the society and that everything that is being done and said to her would eventually stop. She experienced a lot of racial oppression and receives a confirmation of her own sense of ugliness.

Fonteyn focus on her entire career with the Royal Ballet. Her debut was as a snowflake in The Nutcracker in 1934. The next year a wealth of dance roles in the standard classics, such as The Sleeping Beauty, Giselle, and Swan Lake, became open to the young Margot due to the departure of the great ballerina Alicia Markova. Fonteyn loved to become the romantic heroines. Her first major role was in Frederick Ashton 's new ballet Le Baiser de la Fee in 1935.
She didn 't like dance until she was in a hard, challenging class. The Nutcracker and Swan Lake are some of the most popular Russian ballet stories. Ballet is a production that uses dance, music, and scenery to tell a story or create a mood. Dancers move their bodies in order to express emotion or tell stories. Music plays a big part in ballet and dance.
