There was irony using superstition imagery throughout on Mrs Johnstone as she believed the lie that Mrs Lyons told her that “if either twin learns that he was one of a pair, they shall both immediately die”. Yet she realised that she had made a terrible mistake by going against her instincts soon after. Therefore, by the narrator using superstition imagery, it’s reminding her of her foolishness and hence her most costly mistake. Thus the audience know that she is haunted by her past constantly. It sufficed to say that most of the consequences and most of the happenings in the play can be traced back to superstition.
Throughout the story, you start to notice that the narrator starts to become clinically insane as she develops childlike behavior such as demolishing the yellow wallpaper and biting some of the old nailed down furniture. The reader is able to tell how hysterical the narrator is getting as she describes how violently she starts to act towards the end of the story. Even the way the narrator starts to describe her dark thoughts and self-opinions show dangerous signs of how her mental health had gone downhill. “On a pattern like this, by daylight, there is a lack of sequence, a defiance of law, that is a constant irritant to a normal mind. ”(Gilman 801) Her transformation from being able to have self-control to eventually growing clinically insane correlates to characterizations such as horror, madness, and fear that are expressed in the writing styles of gothic
She becomes a victim of an alien culture where all women become victims and feel themselves to be ugly and also suffer from an inferiority complex as a result of the impact of white standards of beauty. Her imbalanced mental state is also due to the uncaring and unsupportive nature of her mother as well as the unhealthy familial relations inside the home where the father on the one hand rapes the daughter and on the other burns down the house along with daily disputes between the parents. I have thus reached the conclusion that females are more vulnerable to acquire a diseased mind as they are always under the confining bell jar of the society and the family as a
However, Moira looks broken down and given up on herself. To clarify, when she is working at Jezebel's, Offered wants a different outcome for Moira. “I'd like her to end with something daring and spectacular, some outrage, something that would befit her (Atwood 250). If Moira who escaped two-time, in the end
Throughout the first part of the play, Medea is suffering and crying about how hopeless she is after Jason has abandoned her. She is hysterical at times and at one-point wishes for her own death. According to the Nurse, her suffering is the consequence of being too passionately in love with Jason. The trait of being obsessed can be considered Medea’s tragic flaw which eventually leads her to her downfall. Later, the Nurse shows us her wisdom by constantly and correctly predicting that Medea will do something ruthless to her children.
Black female characters in Beloved novel are more over scared physically, emotionally by the cruel environment they are living in. they are racially violated and often emotionally humiliated for many years and this woman somehow learn to understand the situation they are in that time. We learn that more of the Beloved females turn to violence sometimes verbal and physical in a way to avoid victimization and in doing so they create the solution towards violence.

Not only did this hurt Jason, but it also hurt the Corinthian king,his daughter and many more. Medea felt justified in her homicidal acts because she had given up so much to be with Jason. Medea’s nurse explained how the main character abandoned her life for a man she believed she loved, “Sometimes she turns to look away, to call out for her father, her country and home: all abandoned and betrayed for a man who now abandons her, betrays her honor and her love. She has learned the hard way what it is to be an exile to had given up everything” ( lines 29-36.)
She feels ashamed and blames herself for not being a good enough wife for Tom, just as Melinda feels guilty as though the rape was her fault, even if it really wasn’t. It is later revealed that in reality, it was actually Tom who had done all those atrocious things. He would lie to Rachel, blaming her for all the things he had done, just to make her feel guilty, weak, and worthless. Just how Andy had made Melinda feel after he raped her. With this connection, I can better understand Melinda’s character through Rachel’s in The Girl on the Train, which I read and enjoyed before I read
A lot of the events she had gone through made way for “something deep and bitter” to settle in her heart (77), as well as the need to make everyone “cower at [her] feet and...make them bleed,” (76) are used as her own personal momentum towards her search for justice and gratification. Additionally, Adelina’s unusually high dependence on others had herself hit her ultimate low, causing her to internally “[spiral] downward, falling to a place where [she] can no longer pull [herself ]back up,” when discovering that the ones she loved didn’t reciprocate the same feelings. With that being said, Adelina’s search for justice could be represented as a search of finding oneself, albeit a long and dangerous
The mental abuse that women receive is just terrible to know that you might die at any time. Being used for only sex is what the victim feels like the only thing she is useful for. In her mind all the person can do is thinking to themselves that life is horrible and not worth living and start to slip into a state of depression. While in that state of depression the women feel like there is no one to help them, and there are right.
Fern or herself. She is painted as a very restless and willful woman who is appalled by the laws that were set for her by men. Her confusion is seen in the beginning of the article when she reads about Emma Wilson, a member of her town being arrested for wearing men’s clothing, “Now, why this should be an actionable offense is past my finding out, or where’s the harm in it, I am as much at a loss to see” (Parton 1750). The reader is able to see how uncomfortable she is with the fact that this happened to Wilson and that she does not stand for the oppression of herself or the women around her. It is seen very early on that Mrs. Fern is a very non-conservative member of her community and that she yearns to make a change.
