Mrs. Hickson accusations of channel 4 making and example of her may not be true however they are reasonable and futher the damage done by the alleged fabrications sated by channel 4. Mrs. Hickson has also suffered some serious mental health issues that have cost outstanding amounts of money and have been partially fueled by the misrepresentations of her daughter’s death by channel 4’s publications of the event (clear evidence of damage). Mrs. Hickson’s has lost the respect of the community and this has made it difficult for her to find a reputable job or simply be socially accepted. Most importantly, channels 4’s Reckless disregard for the truth has thus cost her 16 months of unemployment and the loss of future income.
Shakespeare, Browning and Duffy all create four very similar characters female characters which are considered to be disturbed. This is due to the fact that they all went against the expectations of society in their respected eras. The speaker in ‘The Laboratory’ as well as Havisham and Medusa in Duffy’s monologues are all considered to be “disturbed” because of their common motives: jealousy and revenge. Despite these similarities, Lady Macbeth’s main motive is her hunger for power. This subverted expectations of females as they were supposed to be loyal to their male partners and shouldn’t want to take their power.
But he also treats her bad at times both verbally and physically, for instance, when he slaps her for mouthing off and talks to her as though she were inferior to him. Moments like these make you wonder if he cares for her or if he is using her for personal pleasure. Nevertheless, I think he does love Myrtle in his own way. He proves this when she dies and he becomes very upset, as someone in love would do. Tom obviously does not care for Daisy as much as he use too, otherwise he would not cheat on her.
Their inability to manipulate their way through a situation, to exert physical force or coercion were reasons why they are incapable of such atrocities. (KÜÇÜK, 2013) Not only this, but even if the woman was detained for such an offense she is likely labelled as an accomplice to a man, as was in the case with Grace Marks. But Margaret Atwood unfolded a different truth about Grace's character, one leading to the impression of her second personality of Mary Whitney. Throughout the course of the novel Grace represented the ideal Victorian women, but towards the end Atwood portrayed her as a murderess and a highly manipulative character. At the time of the murder, not only was Grace able to manipulate James McDermott into prolonging Nancy Montgomery's death by saying that, "h... ... middle of paper ... ...to mere pawns at the hands of the females.
To aid her toward the direction of self-honesty, Krogstad and Christine decide that the truth of Nora’s actions must be revealed since they have just finished their talk about their feelings and pasts. Ultimately, Nora realizes that no matter her efforts, she is fake for constantly trying to be someone she is not without finding who she really is. She sees that Torvald treats her horribly like how he treats Krogstad because both committed a similar crime, and she decides that if Torvald acts the same way to her as to a coworker for the sake of appearances, she is like a stranger to him. The two must separate to reflect in order to live a life without deceit, even if it means breaking this perfect doll-house life Nora has meticulously crafted for the past eight
Men Will be Men in The Handmaid's Tale Perhaps the most frightening aspect of Offred's world is not even its proximity, but its occasional attractiveness. The idea that women need strict protection from harm is not one espoused solely by the likes of Rush Limbaugh or Pat Buchanan, but also by women like Andrea Dworkin and Catharine MacKinnon. This protectionist variety of feminism is incorporated in the character of Offred's mother, and to a certain degree in Aunt Lydia. Offred's mother is just as harsh in her censorship of pornography as any James Dobson. By burning the works which offend her, she too is contributing to the notion that women's safety is contingent on squelching the Bill of Rights.
She also accused her husband on being a coward, showing that she could fit the description as a fiend. However, she is not what we would call as purely evil, or lacking humanity, because she, is after all, a woman, whose instinct still remains with her, despite what she had done. She was also washed over by guilt, and became mentally deranged, even before Macbeth. Overall, the remarks that Malcolm made may have their justifications, as to an extent, both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are a pair of "butcher and his fiend queen". However, to an extent these justifications may not fit either Macbeth or Lady Macbeth, as they have had their own humanity within them, as if the "butcher" and "fiend" were just a part of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth's alter ego.
The Wicked Character Medea in Euripides' Medea The character Medea is disliked by many that read Euripides' Medea. She is not really given much of a chance. It is difficult to read the tragedy without having negative feelings towards the main character. Some readers are content to just hate Medea, while others want to know what would compel a mother to come to be able to commit these crimes. Sara Warner writes, "Transgression must be built into any system in order for it to survive.
She had to think of him - to remember…"(Christie 79) Vera Claythorne constantly thought about her initial crime, her guilt built up so much that her mental state deteriorated. This factor makes it difficult to perceive Claythorne as the mastermind; although she 's a very smart woman, her inability to think straight and shake off the guilt from her former felony, makes her an unlikely suspect for murder of the nine before her. Mary Debenham reflects that emotional instability as well, however, she is capable of
She doesn=t express any guilt or regret about the act of adultery itself, but she seems to regret the events that led to it and the pain it caused. Another one of Hester=s sins is marrying Chillingworth. Neither of them loved the other. She doomed herself by marrying Chillingworth, certified her damnation by committing adultery, and finalized it when she concealed Chillingworth=s identity from Dimmesdale. The price Hester pays for her sins is more than being shunned by society; she becomes completely isolated.
