All of Regina’s friends turned against her, and Cady began to take Regina’s place. Regina acts like “the tyrant” in this situation because she continues to overpower Cady even though she knows that Cady has taken her place. In conclusion, in the film Mean Girls, Regina George is an example of “the tyrant” character archetype. From the beginning of the movie to the end of the movie, Regina has always been a leader who knows she can always get what she wants. She is an example of this character archetype because in the movie it reveals that we as humans become attached to the thought of being superior to others because we are afraid of what others will think about
In the satirical novel, “Dealing with Dragons,” by Patricia C. Wrede, Cimorene is a princess who refuses to accept her social and illustrious stance in society.

By using the word haunted, Heaney portrays someone who is to be feared. By using the past tense, haunted, instead of present tense, haunts, he asserts that Grendel’s mother is someone who has earned her reputation of fear over a long period of time. She is described as having “savage talons” and being a “wolfish swimmer” (Heaney ll. 1404-1406). These descriptions depict her as a monstrous being who is more beast than human.
Symbolism has been seen as a very important role in Flannery O’Connor’s short story “Good country people”. Flannery O’Conner has written several short stories portraying herself as a Catholic writer who attacks religious views being opposed, though uses the fundamentals of nihilism portrayed through Hulga (Joy), a character from her story. She uses multiple frank descriptions and the usage of different types of symbolism to get the audience to understand her main points. The symbolistic use of names and an artificial leg give a vivid description of the main character and her views towards nihilism. The usage of names, name change and a prosthetic leg all link the main character’s nihilistic philosophy of life which leads to her tragic event.
In the novel, the protagonist’s mind often flashes back to also signal the narrative change. Although there is different chronological order than the real war the novel reflects upon, the similarities are still easily differentiated and related to outside sources. Examples of references from the novel are the love interest and when the main characters fall through the hole. The references reflect Sacagawea and Alice in the Wonderland respectively. Foster provides these conclusions from this novel to show different techniques an author had used in O’Brien’s work so readers can easily differentiate some on their own.
RATIONALE I wrote a diary about Lenina’s thoughts in the Brave new world society. As a principal character, Lenina represents a model citizen that always follows its policies. But I think that inside herself she has desires and disagreements with it. Bernard´s behavior mentally confuses her, because he was always complaining about the governments ' ideologies and opposing to take soma. Which was dangerous because she likes him.
These women apply physical quality and brutality over less forceful means. They are antagonistic, don 't welcome visitors, and use nonsensical savagery with a specific end goal to settle question. Thryth is exhibited as a princess who used to execute the men who came into her lobby and it is remarked this is unsuitable, even by somebody who is wonderful. Grendel 's mom additionally assaults without segregation, as she does with Beowulf. Yet there is a contrast between the two women in that Thryth is associated through heredity and Grendel 's mom is most certainly not.
Throughout the film noir genre we have explored the role of the femme fatale characters who use their womanly charms as weapons to manipulate men and achieve some higher goal. There acting skills to appear vulnerable and helpless, along with her manipulative nature creates a cold hearted master over men, disguised as a damsel in distress, which our heroes cannot resist. This femme fatale character is portrayed perfectly by Norma Desmond in Billy Wilder’s film Sunset Boulevard but is also challenged by the strong, yet kind, character of Laura Hunt in the novel Laura by Vera Caspary. The feminist view of Laura shines a great light on how women can be empowered and independent and seeking to gain status or monetary gain, but from their own hard
This denial of autonomy removes the ability for the women to have fully developed characters for the reader to have any meaningful connection to either the Queen or the wretched Mother. Grendel’s Mother has no speech, relying instead on crudely pantomimed displays of anger, loss, and grief. This inability to do anything other than lash out at the warriors leads to more bloodshed and ultimately, her demise. Francis Leneghan discusses author John M. Hill’s contention that this generates “social tension” within the narrative “pulse” as the story unfolds (112). This animalistic nature foisted upon the grieving Mother, coupled with her complete inability to be heard forces her into a subjugated position, iterating her as a base creature, forcing the reader to feel separate and disconnected from her without insight to her thoughts or feelings, other than her
