The reason Amanda is so insistent on Laura finding a man could be due to her past experiences. One of the many times caught reminiscing about her gentleman callers, Amanda states, “She married him on the rebound – never loved her – carried my picture on him the night he died! And there was that boy that every girl in the Delta had set her cap for! That beautiful, brilliant young Fitzhugh boy from Green County!" (Williams Lines 60-65).
On the other hand its not all negative and evil as Shakespeare displays the other side of women by using Lady Macduth, he does this by showing her as a kind and caring women that tries to protect her children to the last breath of her life. Using the gentlewomen Shakespeare uses her to show that women are also very loyal. In conclusion, the role of women was one of the main foundations of Shakespeare’s Macbeth and was used significantly throughout the plat to create a lot of tension and to deliver a certain message to the audience. They were also often used to display evil and to be very influential and persuasive however on the other hand Shakespeare also displays them as kind, caring and protective towards their
Ophelia is pulled in many different directions, and is used at the whims of the men in her life. She suffers greatly throughout the tragedy by none of her own faults. She is dragged into this conflict, yet she stays. Ophelia is a dutiful daughter, representing the "fairer sex" perfectly. She is obedient, loyal, and subservient in every way.
“The Play That Goes Wrong” required a very detailed strategic plan of the arranged props and set design that actors need to follow in their performance. I believe the performers did a marvelous job in following the detailed choreography of the show. One of the most memorable cast members was Nancy Zamit. She played Annie the stage manager, who took the spotlight when she was forced into playing Charles’ fiancée named Sandra because the original female lead got "knocked unconscious” in the middle of the play. As terribly shy as she was, Zamit intensified the enjoyment of the audience as her character was reading off lines from pages of the script very awkwardly and awfully in an unfitted red dress and wig.
This decision made it seem like women are heartless and cruel. However, most critics use the Wife of Bath Tale to decide whether or not Chaucer treatment of women was fair. Many believe that Chaucer treated women fairly in his books for the time period based on the Wife of Bath Tale. One writer, Priscilla Martin believes he is even supported of women and has model the Wife of Bath after himself, “The Wife of Bath shares [Chaucer’s] delight in fictional and narrative diversity.
First, the Nurse scouted out Romeo to approve of him herself. “...Gentlemen, can any of you tell me where I may/find the young Romeo?”(Ⅱ,ⅳ,112-113) The nurse was searching for Romeo so that she could interrogate him and judge if he would be the proper man for her beloved Juliet, that she raised from a child. The Nurse just needed to see for herself if Romeo would be correct, as Juliet already hinted at the fact that she loves him. The Nurse approves of him believing in true love and tells Juliet.
When Uncle Pio sees Camila, he sees her as a combination of his great aims in life "his passion for overseeing the lives of others, his worship of beautiful women, and his admiration for the treasures of Spanish literature." He found her when she was hardly a teenager and trained her to act and sing in the theatre, using and abusing her for her talents. Although the crowd always loved her, according to Pio nothing that she did was ever good enough. He overworked her and berated her, pushing her to the point of tears.
While her daughter is being slapped she simply observes and does not even slightly intervene to protect her only child who is begging on her knees. The Nurse, however, demonstrates her true love for Juliet as she steps in and confronts Capulet. The Nurse says, “God in heaven bless her” while pleading, “You are to blame, my lord, to rate her so” (3.5 176, 177). Such a statement to the person that has allowed her to stay long after Juliet finished breastfeeding is one that could cost her the loss of a second child. The Nurse continuously claims that Juliet is like her daughter, and defying Lord Capulet could lead her too far worse consequences than what Juliet gets for defying him.
However even though she doesn’t seem very interested she still makes an effort, which emphasises how obedient she is. The quote also features alliteration, which shows she is skilled at putting words together. She is intelligent and creative, and the way she speaks is calm and rhythmic. In the same scene she also says, “madam I am here, what is your will?” she is very polite and speaks briefly showing she keeps to herself when she’s with her mother.
Although, when Juliet and Romeo get together and the Nurse finds out, she goes along with it and supports the whole idea of them being together, even though their families have a long held hatred towards each other. She serves as a messenger between the two once she finds out what is going on between them by interrupting when Romeo is at Juliet’s balcony, exclaiming his love to Juliet. Once this happens, she goes to Friar Laurence and sees Romeo, and delivers his message to her, exciting each other for what is destined in their future (II.iiiii.1-77). The message that she gives Juliet once she goes to the Friar and meets up with him and Romeo was that they would be getting married, and that she needs to hurry up and go to Friar Laurence’s cell, where her husband to be is waiting for
I did not have any problems imagining the eye-rolls and hair flips that would go along with Kate’s “I can rule them all” attitude. With similar ways of thinking, Olivia and Kate develop a friendship that is muddled with manipulation and keeps the reader guessing who is playing into whose hand. At points I found their personalities amusing, much like the dramatic flair displayed by the characters in Pretty Little Liars, but at other points I was reminded that the characters fit many expected stereotypes. This includes Olivia’s parent-free penthouse that has a foreign housekeeper and cocktail of pills to help Olivia outside of therapy.
Through the structure of her speech, Chaucer characterizes the Wife of Bath as loquacious. Because she goes on many tangents during her dialogue, it is apparent that the Wife of Bath is a character that loves to talk. For instance, when she is telling her tale and digresses to talk about Ovid, she says, “If you wish to hear the rest of the tale, [...] When this knight whom this tale specially concerns.” (Wife of Bath Tale 126-127).
What is a mother? Someone who gave you life? Or someone who cared for you your entire life? In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet are star-crossed lovers who are in opposite households in a feud. They are trying to be together but the feud between their families is keeping them apart so they come up with a plan to stay together but terrible events one after another keep happening.
Two great lovers, dead, in the hands of the mistakes of their God-Teachers. The Nurse and Friar Lawrence failed as God-Teachers because they were unsuccessful in protecting Romeo and Juliet in their last days, leading to their tragic deaths. Friar Lawrence is seen as a very wise person, but later on in the story he began to make rushed decisions that were not be thought through. The marriage arranged from Friar Lawrence in Romeo and Juliet began the long road of conflicts later on in the story. Friar Lawrence said, “These violent delights have violent ends/
The Nurse and Friar Lawrence: Two Sides of the Same Story Both Friar Lawrence and the Nurse play integral roles as mentors and confidantes in the unity of Romeo and Juliet, and although the manner in which they unite the two young lovers differs, the two minor characters are decidedly critical to the plot. The Nurse, Juliet’s confidante, is one of the few characters to tell Juliet to openly seek out men and says, “Go, girl, seek happy nights/ to happy days.” , before the masquerade ball (1.4.114). This openness to Juliet expressing her own sexuality in an active role is critical to the young lover’s unity. Because of the Nurse’s encouragement, Juliet was not reluctant and demure when she first encounters Romeo.
