In her first soliloquy Lady Macbeth reveals her desire t... ... middle of paper ... ...art to the pensive audience. Lady Macbeth’s soliloquies portrayed her as a vile woman tormented by a guilty conscience, and her soliloquies also communicated important information about her to the audience; had all the characters been privy to this information they would have regarded Lady Macbeth very differently. The mind births the contract between corruption and the soul. In reality, we never get to hear anyone’s soliloquies. The imagination hides the deceptive woes and moral bankruptcy of every individual.
Adela Strangeworth’s decision to disrupt her town’s privacy was bad and Emily Grierson’s decision to... ... middle of paper ... ...rth further their evil degrees. Emily Grierson and Adela Strangeworth possessed characteristics alike and different, both resulting in evil actions. Their towns create the perfect canvas on which to paint their tales of evil. The stories of Emily and Adela are tales of control. Emily Grierson desires only love from another human being and Adela Strangeworth sought order in her live and both women use evil to achieve their desires.
This female power is weakened and the rebellion muted in order to bring back social order and also to provide the story with a close. Female rebellion actually becomes oppressed through The Bacchae due to its conseqences and leading events of the play. This alludes to the message that women who do not follow traditional roles of femininity are subject to the destruction of an established society. The Bacchant are considered offensive to the Theban elites, due to their destruction of livestock and men. However, they also pose a threat to the structure of Theban politics.
Leaving the reader no choice to suspect a possible ulterior motive. Stoker mans no attempt to disguise the directing correlation to the repression of women having any kind of sexuality, or power. Dracula has staked a claim in history as one of the best-known Gothic Horror novels, and within it bindings are many notable allegory’s. The most prevalent idea being that women should not have superiority over men, and should be domestic or virginal both in her thinking and actions.
The Governess' horrid plunge is a forced action, as she is powerless to combat the supernatural forces that oppose her. The gothic tone is intensified by strong language and a series of effective individual words, aiming to build up a sense of fear and insecurity for the reader. "Shrouded", "dangerous", "dread" are among other words that are used for effect in this passage. James has introduced us to this passage very well, as we are able to understand how the governess feels. We have a sense that her world is "godless", a world of no social hierarchy.
Women are being ridiculed in this drama due to their lack of voice in society; however their superiority is shown through their keen eye for evidence. Symbolism in this play acts as a precursor to predestined events that take place. It can be observed by looking at anything that has specific significance to a scene, which Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters methodically point out. The unfinished quilt, the strangled bird, and fruit are the symbols that give insight what really happened between Mr. and Mrs. Wright, and what went wrong during their marriage to result in such a dreadful end. There are a few deliberately placed props that really depict what really took place.
To conceive the thought of women expressing rage and blatantly retaliating against authority was a defiance against the traditional role of women. Jane Eyre sent controversy through the literary community. For not only was it written by a woman but marked the first use of realistic characters. Jane's complexity lied in her being neither holy good nor evil. She was poor and plain in a time when society considered "an ugly woman a blot on the face of creation."
This idea could be interpreted as his insecurities with the idea of love, and was it merely a phase of passion and desire? Furthermore, the idea that she is still entrapped in her ‘serpent prison-house’ could express further psychological torment that she is unable to escape, and that by abandoning society and living in a fairy like described palace she is invisible to everyone, so that her insecurities are shut away from the ‘busy world’.

Her desire and beliefs rebel against the societal norms. By living in a deeply conservative society, Ruth also faces difficulties to sustain in the female role presses on her. She seems to get out of the system and tries to stand on her own. Avoiding social norms is grueling, where conservative repressive societal demands are powerful.
In the play, The Crucible by Arthur Miller portrays the downfall of judgment in society when challenged by individuals willing to deceive to satisfy selfish interests. In an attempt to explain the unexplainable, the town of Salem is strongly interested to the idea of witches and devils as an excuse to make sense of tragedies such as dying infants or incurable illnesses. As a result, it is vulnerable to manipulation by greedy individuals looking to escape consequence or sustain reputation by inculcating “fear and guilt [...] in the air of Salem” (Huftel 3). Multiple characters contribute to this outbreak; however, three antagonists stand out: Abigail, Proctor and Parris, all of which spread the hysteria to fulfill personal motivations. Abigail is also motivated by a desire of revenge throughout.
