Cleaning the house and cooking. This makes us think that the movie will be about a housewife changing to show her true self.

The two seem to swap roles because Frank used to tell Rita things and she would try and understand it, but the return from summer school shows that she has memorised Blake poetry and has significantly changed. Rita is driven by the need for education, having realised that life has more to offer then her ordinary existence in the hairdressing salon. Rita says to Frank that b... ... middle of paper ... ...that there is only one thing for her to do to thank him so he sits down and the audience gets the impression of something sexual about to happen but Rita gets a pair of scissors and begins to cut Franks hair. In this scene the dramatic device used is one for humour. Educating Rita is mainly about a character trying to find the right words to express herself, and as she becomes more educated Rita learns to adapt her language to different audiences.
But I do think that the language spoken in the fa... ... middle of paper ... ...that she is happy in the end and therefore appeals to the reader’s emotions. Tan (2002) structures her claims about her bilingual life around cause-and-effects, personal experiences, and pathos appeals. She uses cause-and-effect to show how events in her past have led up to the person she is today. She uses personal experiences to explain where she is coming form when she shows her frustration about her family. Tan uses a pathos appeal to identify with her reader so they understand through their emotions how she really feels about her mother.
Questions everything about Frank and his office. Another way of looking at this quotation is by seeing that Rita doesn't know herself who she and it is 'education' that helps Rita see who she really is by the end of the play. Frank and Rita's lives are connected by the fact they both smoke, drink and have partners at the beginning of the play and not at the end. It is again upon Frank and Rita' first meeting we see Rita' keenness to become and educated woman in the quotation. Frank- ' What do you want to know?'
In flashbvackas our past is revealed to us and therfore brings forth understanding. The play production of The Importance of Being Earnest; The characters past were revealed though the use of dialogue and stage props. However, the movie revealed the characters past through the use of flashback and revealed their future through the use of daydreaming. These two plot devises developed true characterization that not only matched up to the play but went above and beyond to show who the characters really are.
Helen returns after splitting up with Peter and wants Jo back. The audience that Shelagh Delaney was writing for consisted mainly of middle class and upper class people. Her audience were used to seeing productions about characters leading similar lives to their own. The stereotypical play was where the men worked and the women stayed at home, cleaning and cooking. "A Taste of Honey" did not have these qualities at all.
The Nurse is the first character on stage; subsequently, she starts off the play by giving the audience the information needed to get into its disposition.

In the play Euripides skillfully uses the Chorus, the Nurse, and the children to help the audience feel compassionate, relate and understand her. Although these characters are presented separately, in the end they support each other for the most part, although they represent different side of views at others.
To sum up, in the play The Glass Menagerie, Williams uses the theme of one hanging on to illusions as one might need them for several reasons. The characters in this book have connections to this theme, there are critical symbols which relate to the theme, and the theme is crucial to the work as a whole. Illusions help people ignore reality in order to feel content. The power of an illusion on people shows if they are truly happy in life. Amanda, Tom, and Laura, for instance, have powerful illusions which shows that they are isolating themselves from reality in order to not deal with their problems.
