This is only one of the many times the nurse makes a sexual comment throughout the play, but she has the audacity to chastise Mercutio for doing the same thing. This isn’t the only time the nurse scolds someone for doing the same thing she does. “For Juliet’s sake, for her sake, rise and stand.” (III iii 89) The nurse is yelling at Romeo because instead of comforting Juliet he’s crying and whining. This wouldn’t seem weird if she wasn’t doing the same thing just a while earlier. The nurse knows Juliet better than anyone, but at a time when Juliet needs comforting she is crying and complaining about
The only excitement she gets is whenever Tom visits. She desperately worships Tom, knowing that he is her only chance of getting out of the life she is stuck in. Myrtle let’s Tom boss her around, hit her (37), and blatantly use her sex; eventually her devotion to Tom is what led to her death (137). The only poor woman in the story being used for sex shows that the upper class viewed the women of the lower class as nothing but a cheap date. Through the examples given in The Great Gatsby, it is clear that Fitzgerald portrayed the women in his novel as bored, superficial, and lost to bring to the surface the non-progressiveness of the flapper feminist
Irony is also one of the important theme represented in the play. A successful irony is used to make an audience consider what has happened or said to emphasize an idea. Normally when a character is portrayed in an ironic sense, the person can only be saved from previous foolishness by divine intervention. Irony is evident in the words spoken by Madame Pernelle, in Act 1 Scene 1 as she is criticizing Elmire: “Daughter-in-law, please take this well/Behavior such as yours leads straight to hell.” (1.1.27-28). It’s ironic and funny that she considers Elmire’s mild behavior of spending money on fancy clothes sinful yet she praises the man whose actions is corrupt and devious.
Girl Interrupted was a really good movie and I really enjoyed watching it. I tend to like these types of movies more than other movies because they are interesting and capture the audience’s attention. The characters each had their own story to tell and each of them were tragic and as the movie went on you could see how the girls dealt with being in the mental institutions. They all developed some type of relationship which was not completely healthy but the viewers ended up watching how things with all of them turned out. Susanna the main character, who was played by Winona Ryder, was sent by her parents to the mental institution after attempting to end her own life.
Paradox plays a huge part of making certain characters looking more sophisticated. It makes them look smarter in a way as well as makes you questionable of whether they are as smart. William Shakespeare has a very interesting way of making the characters seem very sophisticated during the play “Romeo and Juliet”. Shakespeare uses juxtaposition as indirect characterization to create a lot of ironic complexity in the characters. Juliet deliberately marries romeo in a foolish way, throughout this play Juliet continues to show how dumb she is in a way because she doesn’t really think about what she is doing like she doesn’t consider the consequences at all.
It 's quite sad, really. Selling herself, she reminds him of her devotion, backseat antics and how the other women he may be entertaining would ignore him if he wasn 't successful. In a similar vein, on "Love Drought" she pouts "Tell me, what did I do wrong?...Am I not thirsty enough?...Spend my life in the dark for the sake of you and me...Them old bitches so whack, I 'm so tough, what 's up?" The part of me that goes to Bey to feel unaffectedly invincible can 't deal with all of this pleading, playing the comparison game and what I call "auditioning" (i.e. selling yourself; if your value isn 't immediately seen and always respected, you probably shouldn 't be around), but I digress.
She knows how to word them and they always seem to work. When Elizabeth asks her for help she tells her to “Compare dead happiness with living woe; Think that thy babes were fairer than they were, and he that slew them fouler than he is: Bettering thy loss makes the bad causer worse: Revolving this will teach thee how to curse.” (Shakespeare, 79). Margaret has no power anymore, so she uses her curses to gain control. When someone has wronged her she uses the curses as
She answered yes. They asked if it was constantly she said yes and they asked her if she had been strapped and if it was sever, she answered yes. (Sadler Committee) In the Ashly Commission Mr. George Armitage points out that nothing can be worse than girls working in pits. He has no doubt that debauchery is carried on and it is impossible for girls to remain modest. The girls have to work with men away from every one, there is every opportunity for depravity.
A fairytale one. Her video had good intentions to reach out to those feeling less than perfect and is generally a moving piece thanks to its use of pathos, but it has one flaw: It lacks the inclusiveness and realness she likely aimed towards. From an objective standpoint, the plot works well, telling a recognizable underdog-to-winner story from start to finish while keeping the audience interested. The opening sex scene is graphic enough to raise eyebrows, but it is the look of discomfort from the woman when the couple finished that raises questions. Now
I am weary, give me leave awhile. Fie, how my bones ache! What a jaunce have i had!" This quote from Act two, scene one is where she teases Juliet to make her think she has bad news. Their role affects the family feud because she is a Capulet and a very good friend of Juliet.
