Strindberg's "The Stronger" - Strindberg's "The Stronger" In 'The Stronger' Strindberg focuses upon the role and importance of women at the turn of the 20th century. This is portrayed through a conversation of two women who have different lives and social statuses. Mrs. X is married and therefore socially stronger. Miss Y is unmarried and rather poignantly, doesn't speak. At the turn of the 20th century, women were seen as 2nd class citizens to men. However, this entire play is set in a women's café where Strindberg's purpose is to allow the two characters to fully express their feelings rather than be influenced and controlled by men....   [tags: Strindberg Stronger Essays] 1375 words

Analysis of The Stronger by August Strindberg - The Stronger by August Strindberg is a play that is filled with irony. One of the first things noticed in this play is that the characters have no names, nor are they labeled by any type of status. Rather than having names like most plays, the two characters are differentiated by the letters "X" and "Y." Another ironic thing about this play, is how it is written; the dialogue of the play is not evenly spoken. Instead of the two characters conversing between one another, the play is written almost like a monologue where only Mrs....   [tags: Performance Arts The Stronger Play] 877 words

Miss Y’s Reactions in The Stronger - In the production of The Stronger staring Therese Jean Kibby the screenplay writer, Steve Cleberg took the opportunity to interpret what Arthur Strindberg originally wrote. In watching the play, it is very obvious that there are some major differences from the original version. The most obvious deviation from the original is the fact that the play has scenes that were not ever depicted in Strindberg’s play. This includes the scene in which we actually see Mr. X and Miss Y together at the rehearsal and in Mrs....   [tags: Character Analysis ]

Plato's Response to Thrasymachus' Immoralist View of Justice - Plato's Response to Thrasymachus' Immoralist View of Justice In Book 1 of the ‘Republic’, Socrates, in answer to the question ‘What is Justice?’ is presented with a real and dangerous alternative to what he thinks to be the truth about Justice. Julia Annas believes Thrasymachus thinks Justice and Injustice do have a real existence that is independent of human institutions; and that Thrasymachus makes a decided commitment to Injustice. She calls this view ‘Immoralism’: “the immoralist holds that there is an important question about justice, to be answered by showing that injustice is better.” This essay identifies this ‘Immoral’ view before understanding if and how Plato can respond to it....   [tags: Papers] 1494 words

The Thrasymachian view of human nature has interesting implications in regards to Thomas Nagel’s ideal of egalitarianism, and Barbara Ehrenreich’s discontentment with the economic disparity in our democratic society.

Justice Exemplified by Plato and Thucydides - Plato's Book I of The Republics presents three fundamental views on justice which are exemplified in Thucydides' On Justice, Power and Human Nature. Justice is illustrated as speaking the paying one's debts, helping one's friends and harming one's enemies, and the advantage of the stronger. In both their works, Plato and Thucydides write of the view that justice is honoring one's debts. In The Republics, Cephalus asserts that justice is "the truth and giving back what a man has taken from another."

John Donne's Sonnet 14 - John Donne's poetry reflects many things about him as a poet. Mainly, that his poetry reflects his character make-up as he writes the poem. In the later years of his life, he entered into a religious stage that he continued with until his death in 1631. Sonnet 14 is an example of his religious period, where he is "besieged" and asks God to come into his life in a very real way.
