She refuses to allow the innocent to receive persecution for the wrong reasons. Hope is assertive, aggressive, courageous, bold, and quite outspoken. The characteristics that she portrays are atypical to those portrayed by 17th century women. Instead, Hope’s attitude and behavior more closely resemble that of a female from the 21st century living in an era not meant for her.
Act 1 Scene 3 is our first encounter with the Nurse and is the audience's first chance to form opinions about her. We see her as a loud and bawdy character, which reminds us of Samson and Gregory in the previous scene. Shakespeare presents her in direct contrast to Romeo in the first scene who is lovesick and quiet. Again, this technique grabs the audience's attention because of the change in mood. The Nurse is a very garrulous character and is often tactless and disrespectful towards Lady Capulet in this scene.
Ms. Moore is threatening to her because she wants Sylvia to look at her low social status as being a bad thing, and Sylvia "doesn’t feature that." This resistance to change leads Sylvia to be very defensive and in turn judgmental. Sylvia is quick to find fl... ... middle of paper ... ...hrough." Sylvia is very used to being the leader of the group, the toughest girl, and being able to constantly defend herself, compared to inferior, embarrassed, and unprotected by her often strong words.
She was also rude and violent, ladies were supposed to be polite and were told not to fight. One serious issue is that Petruchio tried such odd way to get Katherine to be have some were on the verge of torture. He did not let her eat or sleep and he forced her to agree with him or she could not do anything she wanted to. Other people should read this book because it has interesting characters, humor and an interesting plot. Katherine is an uncharacteristic character from this time period.
It even seems that she is unfit to manage her own matters or to even merely decide what her own viewpoint on a subject is. Every aspect of her being influences the turning events of this tragedy and one could even say that Antony and Cleopatra is a tragedy due to her incapability to bridle her fierce feminine characteristics and channel them towards a greater good other than her own. The first glimpse into Cleopatra's tumultuous nature is a description of her by Enobarbus in a conversation with Antony. He also insinuates about her ability to manipulate others as well as her shrewd sense of intellect. Enter Enobarbus Enobarbus: â€¦ Cleopatra, catching but the least noise of this, dies instantly; I have seen her die twenty times upon far poorer moment.
I knew you would take this attitude about it!” (line 15). The use of repetition shows that Blanche is getting defensive, she has no reason to because she didn’t admit that she lost Belle Reve yet. Once again, Blanche is deferring the blame from herself, Blanche’s inability to take responsibility consumes her, she is more worried about how others think about her than anything else. She is working harder to convince Stella she is sane, yet comes off crazy. Blanche’s defensiveness makes her seem mentally
Getting to Know Mrs. Elton Jane Austen's characters are extraordinary. Vividly painted, complete with personal eccentricities and short-comings, they make the reader laugh over the foibles of humanity. One of Austen's most memorable characters is Mrs. Elton, who could be considered the antagonist of Emma. The reader's very first introduction to this character invokes a strong feeling of dislike mingled with amusement. This strong reader reaction is the result of a carefully structured build-up to Mrs. Elton's introduction.

Medea uses a lot of bitter and spiteful language, negative vocabulary and dramatic figurative language. Medea prefers to use an eloquent high-class vocabulary to manipulate, lie and play games using other characters to get reactions or persuade them to drink, to tell her secreats, to love her…, do what she wants them to do The language in each play is very effective to show their emotions, their rage and even when they’re being sarcastic or lying, there’s evidence of the emotions their hiding and what they want to achieve: revenge, power, drama, justice. Hedda and Medea are portrayed as complicated characters with many emotions, this deepens them and the audience is able to know what they are feeling and what they are capable of doing because of their emotions through the language they use.
She often uses sarcasm and satire to make her point. She is repeatedly chastised by Orgon and Madame Pernelle for her loose tongue. In Critical Essay on Tartuffe author David Partikian describes her character by writing, “… Dorine, has a saucy tongue, she is constantly told to shut up, and on one occasion, Orgon even tries to slap her.”(David Partikian 1) While Dorine’s voice stands out more than the others, she is not the only character that uses reason. Cleante’s character for example, is very reasonable and well educated. In fact most would recognize him as the voice of reason, but his advice often comes across as a boring lecture.
Possible two of the most celebrated satirised comical characters in English literature, Mr Collins and Mrs Bennet will always be remembered for exposing key negative aspects of Regency Society. I will now go on to describe their development through the novel, and exactly what aspects of her society Austen exposes through them. Perhaps the most comical character that Austen satirizes in the novel is Mrs Bennet, who we see in all her foolishness and petulance conversing with Mr Bennet in the opening chapter. Their dialogue beautifully sums up the Bennet's characters, indeed making Austen's ferocious authorial intervention at the end of the chapter unnecessary. We can clearly see that Mr Bennet character, with its quick parts, and pithy humour, is almost that of a professional satirist, making him a most unnatural father.
