This quote seems to strongly agree with my opinion because throughout the whole play Romeo and Juliet seem to have their thoughts clouded by their emotions and desires causing them to act irrationally. In any case, Romeo and Juliet seem to have many external forces acting upon their love when in reality the largest factor to blame seems to be
Since the beginning of the play she has been notorious because of the village rumors about her provocative and quite manipulative behavior. She is not just jealous of Elizabeth Proctor - she is also mad at her and the whole village for “blackening her name” (Miller 23) and “telling lies” (Miller 24) about her. While some of those rumors subsequently turned out to be true, the society had still failed to fulfill its one and most important function - to protect its members. Instead, people put a label on a person they barely tried to understand, thus leaving Abigail with nothing more than a self-fulfilling prophecy. Well observed in our reality as well, this phenomenon has to do with trying to force a certain individual into a stereotype which in the long term might result in this person subconsciously “living up” to those statements i.e.
She is often misquoted, saying “Let them eat cake”. This quote shows how ignorant she is to how the people live, she thinks that everyone eats and has privileges like her. Rumors such as these were widely spread through a historical essay on her, which was widely oppressed by the government (Shephard et al. 100-111). With the people knowing that the government, didn't want the people to know what she had done, she was hated even more (Shephard et al.
At first, taking into consideration Blanche DuBois’s tense and nervous attitude at the beginning of the play, some might find it a good return to a tragic finale. To elaborate, Blanche was criticizing the couple’s lives at most times especially in Scene 1 where the author mentioned her mocking Stanley’s polish atmosphere
Flora then has an outburst against the governess. This can be seen as Flora being possessed by Miss Jessel. Flora in the governesses eyes suddenly becomes “hard and ugly” when she says "incomparable childish beauty had suddenly failed she was literally, she was hideously hard; she had turned common and almost ugly." she then says “you little unhappy thing” the reader can assume that the governess has now realized that Flora is possessed and she has finally figured it out. The governess once again can be seen to care deeply about Mile and Flora when she says “I’ve done my best, but I’ve lost you” this shows how she actually
The beauty of this play lies within the fact that neither the professor nor Carol is right. Ultimately, both characters are deeply flawed. Throughout the play they scarcely agree or understand each other resulting in the most dramatic conclusion. Oleanna can be interpreted in two distinct ways, dividing audiences between those who were angered by what they perceived as fabricated sexual harassment charges used as a tool to gain power and those who viewed the image of a crafty, manipulative woman as an attack on the right of women to defend themselves from improper sexual proceedings. In addition, at the time of the play 's beginning exhibitions, numerous analysts saw an association with the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas hearings and its not difficult to perceive how this may have roused the thought behind this play.
Many centuries ago people have brought authority to the most of human activities themselves; therefore, it still controls and imposes individuals in actions and wishes. Eventually, ¬nowadays freedom has become one the most desired thing. People instinctively think that freedom is the thing that cures the world and authority is the thing that infects the world. Even though, step by step human beings are getting to be used to believe that authority is a dangerous and terrible thing. Humans return to authority even if they have the freedom, because their answer lies in comparison.
A complex subject like desire is surrounded by a number of views. People interpret desire in a number of ways. While reading Amir Khusrau’s poetry, I began to view and interpret desire in a very negative manner, linked to pain and violence. Such was an opinion I shared in my Piazza post for the reading, where I talked about how desire is a raw and beastly emotion, uncontrollable, whose fulfillment often leads to violence. I connected this idea to a previous text, Sudhir Kakar’s Intimate Relations where Rano, the protagonist of one of the stories, desired to be beaten up by her husband to establish their relationship as a married couple.
Throughout the novel, Hester is constantly ridiculed by the society in which she is apart of; they drive her to isolation with no one to confide in besides her strange daughter Pearl. The Puritan society perceive her as a fallen women, a culprit who deserves the agony of her immoral choice. This idea was demonstrated by the ladies of the community who happily gathered around the scaffold delighting in Hesters humiliation; after hearing of her illicit doing they were quick to lay down their judgement and the type of punishment the adulterous shall be condemned to fulfill. Rachel Dolezal is portrayed in previously this manner, as she was insulted and
- It’s a huge turn off to have a partner who doesn’t act in maturity. A partner who is more often given to child-like tantrums such as sulking when things don’t go his/her way? Argue or gossip with own kid’s mates don’t make a spouse graceful? Running round to neighbours or phoning up mum and dad, yet constantly crying over every domestic squabble is pathetic for an adult old enough to be in a marital relationship? Sadly, a drama queen gets her daily tonic from such attitude; they will ever have a reason to blame everyone else for everything that has gone awry with their existence.
