“What happens when you are not taken care of properly, at work?” This is a question, Catherine Donohue and her friends/co-workers had to face, in Melanie Marnich’s These Shining Lives. I was amazed by the fact that the play is based on a true story about The Radium Dial Girls and their contributions to history. For director Sally J. Robertson to present it to the public is a constant reminder on how important the role of women has changed in society. After watching the play, it was incredible being both entertained and educated at the same time.

Although both of these genders are affected by standards, women are more severely affected by stereotypes. Women are very restricted and are expected to follow very strict rules and guidelines in order to be accepted in this world. Some may believe that double standards have a greater impact on men because they are required to be wealthy and support their family, but women must marry, be loyal, kind, and live a motherly lifestyle. Women must handle a significant amount of stress due to all of their expectations.
In contrast to the Soul-mate who is dainty and frail, Virginia is almost godly in her physical and mental capacity. She does not hesitate to contradict Mr. Fteley who doubts her capability, “The world is full of leaden slugs like you … You hope that mountain climbers and acrobats fall, that daring bridges collapse” (243). This shows Virginia’s determination to be more than people expect her to be, and does so without feeling compelled to garner others’ approval. Her words imply imagery of acts humanly close to flying, and the act of going where others

Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter (1850), is a worthy allegorical novel in which symbolism invades al its components. Hawthorne’s works belonged to romanticism or, more specifically, dark romanticism. The author shaped his own literary style.

The book did an amazing job at character reveal as well as character development. With some books, it takes a reader a while to become enticed by the characters or by the plot. With Wild Seed, it did not take long for many reasons. The first reason is because the book was well written which allowed for myself to follow along without zoning out. Secondly, the book was up my alley because of its genre.
A counterclaim that is encountered with this subject may be describing how Shakespeare 's work is outdated and how the stories were just stories. These points are not important to the argument because they are not valid against the claims of how Shakespeare can give the present day a view of the past, and how he still affects many people today. In conclusion, I believe that reading Shakespeare today should still be allowed in education. Shakespeare permits the present day to perceive life from the past, his work still affects people and peoples opinions today, and his work is a strong basis of what other literate professionals reference
