She was able to play the safe, timid girl very well. That being said, she did have a few habits that distracted me from her performance. Janina has lovely long hair, and through the whole performance it kept falling in her face, and she constantly pushed it back. I am not sure if she chose to have it there to help portray Callie as a more timid girl, but I found this habit extremely annoying. All I wanted to do at times was to jump on stage and give her a bobby pin.
Julie Jordan is the main women focused on in the musical Carousel. With that said she is the only character in the show that is not unlike her real world counterpart. Julie fits a stereotypical mold of women of the time but not character women of the time. Her character is intrinsically an antithesis to all other characters surrounding her. Small choices and actions set her unlike those of made by women in the world of the play allow her to become instantly relatable to the women of 1945.
This shows how the nurse's mood changes very quickly. She does not seem to understand Juliet's love for Romeo. This makes the audience feel bad for Juliet; it makes them more involved in the atmosphere of the scene. The strongest contrast in this scene is between the idyllic and loveliness of Romeo and Juliet's world and the angry world of her parents.
The women of Beowulf were used to bind up peace (or were peaceful women), whereas the women of Arthurian legend tended to disturb the peace and cause strife. There are many women described briefly in Beowulf, and a few women described elaborately in the various Arthurian tales. The women in Beowulf were mostly openly generous, but the women in Arthurian legend unintentionally created conflicts, with the exception of Morgan le Fay. Slight variations on the female characters are present in each story. However, they all share common characteristics with other women in their time period.
To sum it up both of these plays share the same broad message conveyed throughout the entire play. Which includes, women have the capabilities to do more than they show and are allowed to do. As well as the relationship men and women share is not constant, or the same, there are many different views on the relationship they share and many different variations that change as time progresses. Furthermore the rights of women also change with much time, and hard work by many women who have worked hard for their rights and future rights of all women. Some of this can lead to these two plays, giving new, bold ideas that were frightening for many during their times but helped for the push for a better tomorrow.
I’m in a play and I have never been in one before! I have a character name and everything. I am Myrrhina in Plautus’ Roman farce “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Wedding.” My character is a drunk. Perhaps those pink cheeks gave me the edge I needed. Rehearsals start Monday, preliminary costume fitting after work today.
Marilyn Monroe was a very prominent feminist of her time and even to this day, whether they choose to recognize her as one or not. Feminism today has not changed that much since the twentieth century. Some women choose to flaunt their bodies and have lots of sex while others conserve themselves and think an active sex life is slutty. Some women think having long hair makes them more of a feminist then women with short hair. Feminism is characterized more by what someone is doing and not what they believe.
Unlike the main character, “Jennie [was] a perfect and enthusiastic housekeeper and [hoped] for no better profession.” (Chopin 2). At that time, it was thought that women simply didn’t get mental disorders for the same reasons that men did. When a woman didn’t fill the role that society created for her, it was said that she was mentally ill. At this time, all women were supposed to be like Jennie, housekeepers and caretakers who were supposed to be happy with their positions. The novel The Awakening, written by Kate Chopin, perfectly explains the different roles there were for women in society. In The Awakening, there are three types of women: mother-wives, single women and Edna.
Telling Creon might have been a nice gesture, but it showed that she was only thinking about herself. Both characters showed extreme arrogance during the play. It affected them both in negative ways, but it proved that they were only thinking of themselves during times when they could have used some advice or help. In Sophocles’ play Antigone, he showed how characters can be so different, but similar at the same time. Throughout the entire play, Creon and Antigone were in a constant struggle, but the audience did not realize how alike they really were.
During the play she is quite rash and bold. She made big choices and didn’t really bother thinking about the consequences. She made some choices, though about them, but still made bad choices in the end. She also falls in love very quickly. Juliet fell in love with romeo really quickly.
