Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” depicts a young woman suffering from depression after the birth of her child. This woman is sheltered away by her husband to a mansion in the country, where she persists to retreat into her mind from lack of other stimuli. Through the narrator’s drastic plunge to insanity, Gilman accurately depicts the limited roles available to women of the nineteenth century and the domineering and oppressing actions men took toward them. In just the first five lines Gilman illustrates the male-dominated society and relationship. "John laughs at me, of course, but one expects that in marriage."

For example, the death of Mercutio’s (like a brother to Romeo) transitions the audience to sadness and dismay. Moreover, the displayed happiness, and humor in the beginning of the story influences the tragedy setting the remainder mood of the movie (Goodykoontz, 2014). An easily identified genre is the displayed character type of Romeo and Juliet free spirit thinking. For example, they decided to marry within twenty four hours of being in love. Moreover, Juliet character is well-defined as individualist when she tells Romeo “you kiss by the book.” As much when Romeo meets Juliet he forgets all about Rosaline the woman he thought he loved.
The narrator is trying to talk to her husband and confess her feelings on her mental illness and the treatment that is she is forced to undergo and is patronized. At one point she begins discussing with her husband about the wallpaper that upsets her. One reading would expect her husband to openly listen to her concerns but instead he disregards her feelings and seems to make fun of the thoughts she has by belittling her. “John laughs at me, of course, but one expects that in marriage.”(647 Gilman), this excerpt is a perfect example of John putting down her thoughts and feelings and making her feel like she is a child. The loving wife justifies his remarks although they are condescending.

Father and Daughter Relationship in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet In 'Romeo and Juliet' Shakespeare explores and contrasts the passion of two lovers with the violence and bitter hatred between their families. Shakespeare also has a strong theme of male domination in the play, and helps express this with the relationship between Juliet and her father, Old Capulet. Old Capulet is the head of one of the two households in contrast, Romeo is a member of the other household, the Montagues. His parents and his relationship with them is barely mentioned in the play, apart from when his Mother, Lady Montague dies of grief, after hearing Romeo had been banished, her son's exile had 'taken her breath'. In contrast to this Juliet's relationship with her father is one of the main underlying storylines in the play, and the way it is dramatised helps explains why many things are the way they are in Verona, which is the city which the Capulets and the Montagues live in.
At the beginning of the story, readers are introduced to the narrator who is suffering from postpartum depression while receiving medical attention from her physician husband, John. As the story progresses, Gilman illustrates the male dominated society through which it was customary for the men to assume authority whereas the women were expected to respect his charge in return. As shown, John often infantilizes the narrator by calling her his "blessed little goose" (599). This emphasizes that John's anti-feminist beliefs are discern as he seizes command by neglecting to treat his wife as an equal partner and overlooks her opinions as being invaluable. Nonetheless, the narrator contently accepts John's pet names while simultaneously embracing her designated role in society: "John laughs at me, of course, but one expects that" (597) in marriage.
