The Tyranny of Maximilien Robespierre Beginning in 1793, a one-year period called the Reign of Terror took place in the midst of the French Revolution. The political parties, the Jacobins and the Girondins, conspired in order to overthrow the French monarchy.

Paquette suffered because she was forced to be a prostitute. Voltaire is satirizing the attitudes of the society towards the “gender role” in the eighteenth century. He shows the submission of females in the male-dominated society. He is trying to deliver a message reflecting the reality that women are actually suffering from being abused in many different ways.

The little glimpse of domestic harmony which had been offered her, gave her no regret, no
The two friends of Enda each display a very different type of woman for the reader to evaluate, and compare Enda too. Adele is (as before mentioned) the ideal woman of society, and then Mademoiselle represents the opposite and independent side of that. These persons are included in Enda’s social circle to represent the fluctuation between the two personalities that Enda experiences in finding out who she wants to become. Chopin wrote the character of Adele to demonstrate how similar the two may have seemed in the beginning. As well as to show how far apart the women seemed to be towards the end.

At the same time, Patrice functions as an extension of Louise; they share the same sense of shallow beauty, and Isabelle-Marie observes that Louise’s livelihood “rested on [the] solitary and fragile beauty” of Patrice (5). Isabelle-Marie, however, is incongruent with Louise’s conception of a perfect family, which leads to her ostracization. The neglect Isabelle-Marie experiences because of her appearance attracts her
Antoinette Never Said, “Let Them Eat Cake” Despite popular belief that Marie said the phrase “let them eat cake”, she actually never did say the phrase even though it probably never will be disassociated from Antoinette.
