Analysis 1. In my novel Matched the major conflict is mostly resolved. I think this because the main conflict in the story is that she can't choose who she wants to be with as well as hiding everything she knows that since the society has made its existence completely and utterly illegal. In the novel, Cassia does choose which boy she wants, which ends up being Ky, but closer to the end of the novel, Cassia does a sort job that gets Ky deported. This changes the plot drastically because now Cassia must now be worried about her secrets as well as getting Ky back without letting the government and society finding out of her plan.
Women were supposed to abide by any rules the man set forth. Matthias enforced this belief in his home by abusing his wife to make her fear him. But his wife, Margaret, was tough and didn’t believe her husband was any more powerful than she was. These actions caused Matthias to despite women, which grew more and more as he became older. Once he created his Kingdom later in his life, he made clear his feelings toward women in that they were nothing better than maids and sexual subjects to men.
She does not want to be just a housewife and mother, the two exact things Denny her husband wants her to be in order that she fits in with the rest of their society. He tries to control her and prevent her from learning, he burns her books and constantly nags at her to come off the pill so that she can have a child and settle down, just like everyone else they know. Denny's ideas are evident when he says; 'There's a time for education. An' it's not when y' twenty-six an' married.' Basically she has to make a choice between her education or her family, because as she changes to become a more sophisticated and educated woman, she widens the gap between her and the people in her old life, them being ignorant and uncultured.
This arrangement further helps the Middle Eastern men to view women as their properties, servants, or even as slaves. Ultimately, there are three main reasons why Middle Eastern men engage in the act of oppressing their women. One primary reason why Middle Eastern men oppress women is their deeply rooted belief system as well as their needs. For example, their belief that the Middle Eastern woman’s duty is being a dedicated homemaker encourages them to disallow her from seeking an education. Ramsay M. Harik and Elsa Martson, revisit this concept in their book, Woman in the Middle East, as they state that many males convince their women that education is unnecessary nor relevant to their household responsibilities.
Rita desperately wishes to become educated so she goes to the Open University where she meets Frank her English lecturer. With Frank's edification she eventually becomes educated however in the process her character changes very drastically and as a result her relationship with Frank and Denny her husband deteriorates. Rita is very determined to study with Frank, affirmation of this can be found at the beginning on Act one when Frank refuses to teach her, "I didn't actually want to take this course" after hearing this Rita leaves the room and dramatically re-enters and says "You are my teacher - an' you're gonna bleedin' well teach me." Thinking from a directors point of view this is one of the most important scenes in the play because this is where the audience attain their first incite into Rita's character, so it is fundamental that when you recite this line you speak with a forceful tone. Rita is a working class woman who has littl... ... middle of paper ... ...eginning of the play.
Janie grew throughout the novel into a strong and independent woman. Although Janie cared for Tea Cake, she needed to kill him in order to keep him from suffering. Janie shows the reader that she has lived her life fully the way she wanted too and is now able to die having no regrets in life. Although Janie did recognize that most men were obsessed with power and thrived for complete control, she did discover a man who helped push her to her goals. Tea Cake helped Janie a lot, but he made sure she did not rely on him because from the moment they met, he knew how strong of a woman Janie truly was.
This becomes evident when she says to him, "Only look up clear,"(1.5.70) and "leave the rest to me"(1.5.72). She intends to keep him under her control by making decisions for him and not allowing him to think for himself. Lady Macbeth is able to achieve such power over her husband by continually insulting his manliness and boasting her... ... middle of paper ... ...e is an authoritative figure who thrives on her ability to rule her husband's life, and watching Macbeth gain independence at her expense eats her up inside and causes her to lose her sanity. She sees the tables of power being turned, and she begins to see herself in the position her husband formerly held, that of a weak, submissive individual. She can not allow herself to live her life that way, and, as it is explained in the last speech of the play, ".
With both author’s realistic description and depiction of two dysfunctional families, Ibsen and Strindberg really both push the envelope on how realistic they may seem. They are not afraid to portray families how the truly are, many times ugly and unseemly. In Ghosts everyone’s roles as mom, dad, son, and daughter is abandoned and narrate to each other as normal human beings, but especially those of mothers. In Strindberg’s The father there is no denying that the conception of a feminist household exist. Laura is clearly in look for power, but her exclusion from the self-given power of the Captain drives her to use her daughter for maternal rule.
Tom is another candidate as the protagonist because he narrates the play, making his thoughts appear most throughout the performance. But, he is not the protagonist because he chooses to desert his family for his own selfish reasons. Some people feel Laura is the protagonist because she is most likely to change and is the center of the ongoing conflicts. Laura is indeed the best choice as a protagonist because she breaks through her wall, becoming a sophisticated lady. Tennessee Williams gave protagonist-like qualities to all of the main characters to let the audience be independent readers.
During the play the character of Rita is completely transformed. And this needs to be shown through the way the actors play their characters and the way they interact on the stage. In the beginning she struggles greatly with her language skills, only managing to develop the necessary skills after her success at the summer school, to succeed in the second act. As the first act experiences the breakdown of Rita’s marriage with Denny; the second half of the play shows evidence of a strong rift between Frank and his partner Julia. The first point at which the audience comes face to face with the characters is Act 1 Scene 1.
