While reading in the prologue to The Wife of Bath’s Tale, during the times when I am able to read the story fluently and without having to divert my attention to overcome the difference in spelling, grammar, language, etc., I do find aspects of Alison’s nature amusing. Her quick to judge mentality and solid beliefs are explained to all in such a remarkably unapologetic way, even when her actions or thoughts appear to be questionable, that she often comes across as ludicrously self righteous. Quite proud of her marital manipulation, or more specifically, her manipulation of all men, it is clear she relishes divulging all of her conniving stunts, as if each form of misery she inflicts upon her husband is a trophy worth taking down at any
They were having a fight about something. I’ve a feeling about me”(Minot, 297) This passage speaks volumes, starting with the fact that they have moved to a secluded truck symbolizing their success in flirting with her, and have speedily moved things on to peruse sex. She ends with, “I’ve a feeling about me,” the reader assumes she is enjoying being fought over yet there isn’t any hard evidence supporting our theories, plus she doesn’t say that she tried to stop them. This sense of belonging ties in with her search, and the idea that she thinks she finally has found something that she believes makes her fit in.
Some may argue that the conflict occurs after Miss Brill overhears the remarks in regards to her from a young couple, however, when “[she] was glad that she decided on her fur” and opened the box containing said fur is a more reasonable answer as to where did the conflict begin. It represents Miss. Brill unconsciously accepting the fact that her current life is unbearable, in order to fulfill this empty void in her heart is to fantasize and bend reality. While Shamshu respects the decision of his dear friend Bharwani and puts away his pride, Miss, Brill still refuses to acknowledge her status in life and instead, believes she "[hears] something
Elizabeth 's sparkling and teasing wit brings on Lady Catherine 's disapproval and Darcy 's admiration. She is always interesting to listen to and always ready to laugh at foolishness, stating, "I hope I never ridicule what is wise or good. Follies and nonsense, whims and inconsistencies do divert me, I own, and I laugh at them whenever I can." Because of her exceptional powers of observation, Elizabeth 's sense of the difference between the wise and foolish, for the most part, is very good. (Josephine, 2003)
The speech given by Clare Boothe Luce to the Women’s National Press Club was controversial and even condemning of her audience. However, Luce pulls it off by gently preparing the audience for the criticism: she employs the fact that they invited her there to speak, a strong consideration for their feelings, praises of their profession, and a clear plea for open mindedness. She does things to create a peaceful and relaxed tone despite her words. She opens the speech with a paradox about being happy and enlightened; first saying she is “flattered” and honored, then she flips her original statement saying she is “less happy than you may think” (lines 3-4). Luce uses these positive terms to open her speech in order to set a specific mood, a mood that makes her intentions clear that she is not out to verbally assault the audience, but she is in fact going to critique and criticize them.
In the reading, ‘I am a Ho, Hear me Roar’ by Renee Bondy, I realized that “the language of female friendship, with its intimacy and emotional weight, is a complex and ongoing task”. Even though I wasn’t calling her by derogatory terms, we still initiated a naming ritual where we named each other’s as “BFF”; however, with this title came with great pressure

Within Much Ado About Nothing, the two plots: the romance between Claudio and Hero and the tough spots between Benedick and Beatrice. The use of prose not only exemplified the playful nature between Benedick and Beatrice, but also proved that they really did have a genuine love. They finally speak in verse when they admit their love, switching to the more serious tone proves that they were done fooling around, and they wreally meant it when they said they loved each other. Beatrice breaks the mold of a typical woman’s role is in Shakespeare’s plays.
As well, Shirley uses themes in the hole story to not forget the main topic in different sections, and to understand how important the values and the manners are. My opinion of “The Lottery” is that sometimes the writer can express herself with the readers using different literary devices on the story, and this helps to understand the main purpose of the story. The story was very entertaining and it has a great conclusion because we never expected that kind of end. She also used a lot of different characters to demonstrate the different perspectives that each part of the
Also the author as able to strengthen her argument by adding supporting views from authorities (Jean Baker Miller), which emphasized how women tend to avoid the appearance of power as she never take credit for her achievements and usually blames it on being lucky. At the end of the essay the author advocates several strategies women should pursue in order to get tough such as “taking credit when credit is due” (Par.10), because taking credit when it is deserved is a sign of confidence and determination, also she explains how women should express their anger in different

Oates uses emotionally/ominous loaded language, and vivid threatening imagery in Where are you going,where have you been. Oates purpose is to warn readers of what could happen when an adolescent go through the rite of passage.
