Sticking to her thoughts and beliefs, Shu Lien ignores his emotional admittance and abruptly reminds him that “as a woman”, she must “abide by tradition”. Lee frames the two lovers within narrow walls and employs their feeling of oppression. This proves that the film pits Eastern philosophy against the
Soon a mere accusation from her becomes enough reason to convict even important, influential people. Abigail uses the witch hysteria that consumes Salem to secure herself from accusation, and gain control of the trials by accusing respectable people, before moving on to Elizabeth, and then in her desperation, she manipulates Mary Warren into eventually accusing John. “Abby' s lust threatens Proctor in many ways: she tempts him to sinning adultery in the first place;
In act two, Priestly writes Mrs. Birling to divulge the snobbery upper-class women portray, Sybil tells the inspector that Eva "was giving herself ridiculous airs. She was claiming elaborate fine feelings and scruples that were simply absurd in a girl in her position", Mrs. Birling instantly reveals class prejudice when referring to Eva as "a girl" and not a woman. Priestly uses Sibilance when repeating the 's ' sound throughout the quote: "Ridiculous airs... fine feelings... scruples... simply absurd". It may be just a coincidence that Priestly calls her Sybil Birling, but the sibilance with the repetition of the letter 's ' recreates that sinister snake-like hissing sound; this gives us an insider on Mrs. Birlings evil intent. There is also a strong sense of irony when she refers to Eva 's feelings as "elaborate" since she used elaborate language to describe them such as: "ridiculous airs", "scruples" and "absurd".
This use of figurative language highlights the inescapable suffering and isolation that Offred encounters while interacting with others, and achieves a hollow, detached tone. In factual recollections of the events occurring, diction and syntax are also crucial in the construction of this isolated, resigned tone While describing exchanges between herself and the rest of the household, Offred uses short, precise sentences, void of intricate words or complex structure. This can be seen in her conversation with Rita, in which she often replies using only one word, such as “alright,” without a smile or real engagement (11). This tone is reflected in the Marthas, whose sentences are also condensed, such as “Tell them fresh, for the eggs,” or “Nobody asking you” (10-11). It is apparent that neither group is comfortable, or willing, to share
Abigail’s self centered mentality is the reason why she uses fallacies to assert her dominance over others. For example, Abigail uses the Argument ad Baculum fallacy to force Mercy and Mary into submission. Before the usage of the fallacy, Abigail was pestering the girls to have the same story of the night before so she would not get into trouble for doing witchcraft. Suddenly, Betty regains consciousness and shouts about how Abigail was practicing witchcraft. Instead of Abigail finding a way to distress the situation, she violently attacks Betty.
Continuing with the example, the title says “Cool party mom, accused of” the word accused is loading and could have been replaced with a nicer word such as proof or seen. These words throughout the text are vulgar and really appeal to the reader. Another example is when a witness says “no respect!” this shows that the women is not nice and gives a bad vibe. There could have been other words such as she is not kind or something along those lines. So, now this essay has ultimately gone through the three ways that the text can be deviated from the text, to entertain
In the end, Rosaura’s illusion about being equal to everyone else is shattered; after coming face to face with Senora Ines, she realizes that she was only there to help. Through Rosaura’s unjust situations, Liliana Heker demonstrates that different individuals react differently to injustice: aggressively, being protectively, and passively. Initially, Rosaura retaliates againstto injustice with her aggressive behaviour when she argues with her mother and during the party. Her actions demonstrates that she can’t control her rage. For example during her conversation with the girl with the bow, Rosaura got very agitated and decided to kick the girl in the shin.
Gaining power has its benefits and consequences, like a sphere of influence over others, or respect from your peers. All the same, too much power has major consequences. Abigail is an example of that consequence. In Act I on page 20 Abigail said “I will come to you in the black of some terrible night and I will bring a pointy reckoning that will shudder you….”to the other girls in Betty’s room. Abigail threatens the girls knowing that they will listen.
In the short story “The Yellow Wallpaper,” Charlotte Perkins Gillman gives a real life example of how the inhumane treatments for postpartum depression genuinely do just the opposite of what they are supposed to. The narrator, which is the woman in the story, shows how her development symbolizes the effects of cruel postpartum depression treatments and how they transform women into something they are not. The narrator is developed through certain regimens of the treatment, altering her thoughts through journaling, and forming an unhealthy obsession with the wallpaper in her bedroom which eventually consumes her into believing what is not there. Tone is a very important element in this story. The author uses tone to demonstrate how the narrator’s thoughts change from the beginning to the end of her treatment.
In Act I, her skills at manipulation are on full display. When she's on the brink of getting busted for dabbling in witchcraft, she skillfully manages to pin the whole thing on Tituba and several of Salem's other second-class citizens. In the begging, Lady Macbeth represents the opposite of women. She is the dominant partner in their relationship between her and Macbeth. As we progress through the story line, we observe Lady Macbeths downfall.
Moira is the embodiment of defiance towards ‘The Republic of Gilead’ and its oppressive nature, Offred constantly reflects on memories of her for use as a symbol of hope and defiance. In Gileadean society the only purpose of handmaids is to be a vessel for children, so it was only natural for Moira, as a lesbian, to resist the changes that Gilead and The Red Center tried to enforce upon her. Margaret Atwood uses Moiras frustration to change the tone of The Handmaids Tale to a story that focuses on trying to resist the power of an oppressive regime rather than just revealing what life in such a society is like. Offred constantly looks to Moira as a guiding figure because she is strong and independent. This is why when the protagonist finds
These sorts of character serve a particular purpose in the context of the plays. They are a foil against which the plights of the true focuses can be highlighted. Ismene, Antigone’s sister, is presented as the typical woman of the age. As such she is entirely against Antigone’s plan to act against the state. She asks her sister, “Shall we not perish wretchedest of all, / If in defiance of the law we cross / A monarch 's will?” (_Antigone).
“The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, is a short story that deals with the concepts of gender difference and madness. The narrator in the story is a ‘bad’ and ‘unsuccessful’ woman and is also mentally-ill. Gilman criticizes the mainstream opinions regarding those concepts using symbolism and imagery. Gilman uses imagery and symbolism when describing the windows and the wallpaper, which helps the reader better understand the differences between ‘normal’ people’s outlook and the one of an insane person, such as the narrator. The windows are a symbol of the way most people, according to Gilman, view the world. The windows are transparent and therefor they enable capturing a clear view of the real and physical outside world.
Tatiana responded well to the intervention. Tatiana continues to make progress towards her goals. Tatiana participate in self-talk. Tatiana complete the worksheet.

"The Yellow Wallpaper" is about a lady made crazy by post pregnancy anxiety and a hazardous treatment. However,, an examination of the protagonist’s portrayal shows that the story is generally about character. The protagonist’s projection of a fanciful lady, which at first is just her shadow, against the bars of the wallpaper shows her personality, disguising the contention she is dealing with and in the end prompting the entire breakdown of the limits of her character and that of her shadow. Continually alone and not allowed to abandon her room, the absence of something to involve her time makes the protagonist very confused. With blocked windows, the room is very similar to a jail.
