The father in the lay of the two lovers prevents his daughter from marriage. However, she’s fallen in love with a nobleman: “She found him engaging and thinking of her poor chances of married love because of her father’s arbitrary rules, she chose to do the very thing most fathers fear and gave her love to the young man…” Refusing to accept her fate, the daughter goes against her father’s will and chooses to devise a scheme with her lover to get married. Her rebellion against her father because of her infatuation represents women making her own choices. Furthermore, after marriage, wives were known for holding power over their husbands and persuading their opinions: “In France and in England, women often ruled territories and even kingdoms upon the absence of death of husbands. Women usually possessed their own households and circles of patronage, and it was widely recognized that women had considerable influence over their husbands.” Mature wives were offered “...freedom from supervision, control over the household, and participation in government.” Therefore, in the lay, when the daughter fights for her love, she is also inadvertently fighting for the power she could obtain through marriage.

What a moment." (Pg 153) I disliked the fact that Theo dissed the girl just because his friend wouldn 't like it. "He wasn 't exactly looking for a girlfriend, and besides, April would be devastated if he began chasing a flirt like Hallie." (Pg 153) I also liked that the Boone 's were intelligent enough to dance around the illegal immigrant thing, save the trial, save Roberto, and give Julio 's family a home. "He explained that his parents were offering the deal of a lifetime.

As the novel progresses, Nick becomes friends with a man named Gatsby, who is viewed as a mysterious figure to outsiders. Nick finds out his second cousin once removed, Daisy was once in love with Gatsby. Unfortunately for Gatsby, Daisy was more focused on money and the social power, so when he went to war, she did not wait for him, and instead married Tom Buchanan who had lots of “old” money. This shows the moral decay of society because Daisy left a man she loved (Gatsby) because she could not wait for him and he did not have the money.

The song itself is not a mainstream 90s song and Patrick’s tuxedo further emphasises their unwillingness to conform. Holden and Charlie are clearly alienated and isolated from their respective societies, but despite this similarity in their situations, the circumstances of their exclusion are contradictory. Holden has an accusatory tone towards society and adults for his corruption of innocence, “It was very phony – I mean him being such a big snob and all”. Conversely Chbosky gives Charlie a more self-conflicting attitude towards his isolation, as he almost blames himself for his exclusion, the quick flashbacks of his past trauma at the end of the film signifying this. Both Salinger and Chbosky have created influential characters that express the importance of not conforming to society.

In "The Taming of the Shrew,” Shakespeare draws Kate 's character as an aggressive woman that nobody wants to marry her. On the other hand, Kate 's character is misunderstood by the male characters around her. She might be acting rudely as a result of feeling insulted by the idea that her father wants her to marry any man that would take her. The fact that she feels not respected and unequal to any man makes her act as cruel and tough as any man can be. By the end of the play she understood that there is no other way of gaining the respect and support she desires unless by conforming to her society 's ideas and act as an obedient
