She realizes that she can do this with Higgins’s help—she recognizes his expertise in this subject, but he is unwilling to help her until she pays him a high sum that she cannot afford. Higgins’s peer Colonel Pickering’s attention is brought to Eliza’s plight and he feels for her, so he strikes up a wager with Higgins and ... ... middle of paper ... ...see any kind of challenge in Freddy, so he was not of so much interest to her. George Bernard Shaw’s message, though, is that affection for another person should not be disguised as distaste, for eventually, the person we love will move on to somebody else who treats him or her as he or she deserves to be treated. In a way, Eliza’s plan to marry Freddy is a type of poetic justice against Higgins, who, even though exhibits the proper grammar and speech of gentility, is not truly a gentleman. His behavior and attitude are just inexcusable for a heroine like Eliza.
(9.92). Later, when Mr. Darcy does propose to Elizabeth, he tells of how he will decline in class because of it as understood in, “He spoke well; but there were feelings besides those of the heart to be detailed; and he was not more eloquent on the subject of tenderness than of pride... ... middle of paper ... ...sgraced which causes an abundance of unexpected marriages just to heighten their standard even if they do not really love each other. This causes conflicts in both novels between the ones who really love each other. Manipulation ensues due to characters wanting to get the most out of situations to better themselves. However, the falling action and resolution makes a turn in two different directions.
This quote shows that Frank likes to flirt with Rita and shows that literary knowledge is not all that is on his mind.

Miriam Toews’ A Complicated Kindness and J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye are two novels in which characters reflect on their attitudes and experiences as a source of emotional growth and maturity. Salinger and Toews show the importance of this reflection through the evolution of their characters’ – Holden Caulfield and Nomi Nickel – similar attitudes towards their schools, communities, and lives. Though Nomi and Holden both do poorly in school for various reasons, Nomi overcomes her obstacles by working to identify the source of them. Both characters also resent their communities because of the hypocrisy found within them.
When Frank was told that he was going to be tutoring Rita who is an open university student he was not very happy, the only reason he had took the job was so that he could make more money to spend on alcohol. Frank guessed that she was going to be “some silly woman”. This gives us the impression that Frank likes to use stereotypes and thinks that there is not much point. He soon realises that Rita has quite a lot to offer in regard to he uniqueness. The Playwright Russell wants to show how class affects education.
Educating Rita Question How does the play write show the audience the differences between the two characters by the way that they behave according to the stage directions and the way that they use language? What comments is he making by showing us these two very different characters. I will be writing about two scenes from a play called Educating Rita. The play is about two completely different characters from two completely different backgrounds, brought together by education. The two characters are Frank and Rita; Frank is a middle class university professor, who has been very well educated and has a partner called Julia.
Sometimes I believe that men are more visual and woman is emotional, what I’m trying to explain here is a man knows what he wants until he meets the real deal until she turns him off in the beginning. A woman on the other hand emotions are more vulnerable, therefore she is open to trying something different for a change to see if he is her Mr. Right. I absolutely do not think couples should not live together before marriage because you have to get to know this person somehow. It is a learning experience, challenges and obstacles, and maybe a few sacrifices that we all might go through, but we are able to get through it to the best of our abilities.
Willy Russell's Presentation of the Relationship Between Frank and Rita At the start of the play, Frank and Rita can be seen as opposites; Frank is a middle aged male academic, while Rita is a young, female hairdresser. Any relationship between the two seems unlikely, but they warm to each quickly and the audience realises that Frank and Rita are not quite as different to one another as first appearances show. They are both involved in unsatisfactory relationships and want more from life than it seems to offer. The main difference between the two is that, whereas Rita has recognised her unhappiness and is determined to change it through becoming educated, frank is a pessimist and tends to down his sorrow through drinking. Frank and Rita become good friends in the play because Rita needs Frank to teach her, and he needs the freshness and vitality that she brings to his life.
Each character has aspirations for Pip which he believes he must fulfill in order to succeed in life. He also sets expectations for his friends and family and becomes disappointed when they do not meet his aspirations. The pressure from all the characters and the pressure he puts on others eventually diminish Pip's ideals, because he believes that he must please everyone. These Great Expectations pressured on Pip define the storyline of the novel and the progression of each character. Therefore, In Charles Dicken's novel "Great Expectations", the title plays a significant role due to Pip's struggle with the fact he cannot live for himself, but rather is focused on living up to standards placed on him and others.
Capulet is interesting because of the way he develops, he is complicated and hard to understand but goes from being selfish to being compassionate. Audiences may react to Capulet differently at different times. The people in the time of Capulet may go along with his way of thinking and they may be horrified at Juliet’s refusal to marry Paris. At the time Shakespeare was writing, the father was the head of the household. A modern audience may find Capulet’s attitude old-fashioned and they may be surprised at the lack of respect he has for his daughter.
