Dangerous Liaisons: Present and Past

- Dangerous Liaisons: Present and Past       Halfway through viewing Dangerous Liaisons, a remarkable contrast as well as a huge parallel came to mind.  The film's principal characters' treatment of their promiscuity was quite different from what we see today.  They were quite covert about their sexual relations, and often concocted cunning plans to assure the secrecy of their activities.  Today we find quite the opposite taking place on our news programs and talk shows.  It seems to me that the cause of this whole difference in treatment of sexuality is due to the advent of mass media.  That pre-Revolutionary French society was not completely different from today, however.  Like o...   [tags: Dangerous Liaisons Essays]

Reception Theory and Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons)

- Reception Theory and Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Liaisons) Of all the literary critical theories yet discussed, I find reception theory by far the most intelligent and rewarding.

Well, technically, it emanates vibrations, but only an ear will interpret those vibrations as sound....   [tags: Liaisons Dangereuses Dangerous Liaisons]

Working Women and Dangerous Liaisons

- At the end of nineteenth century men and women migrated from rural areas to urban areas for industrial work (Smith, p.142). This change ushered in the system of wage labor which became the way most members of lower class gained income. However, wages for workers were incredibly low (Smith, p.145).
