Male Characters Upper Hand
592 wordsIn the scheme of major motion pictures today there's an attempt to portray women as strong people, yet in every role there are instances of docility so that the male characters have often had the upper hand. In more modern times, the downfall of women has always been men, as opposed to biblical and Greco-Roman stories where the opposite was true. Women are always made out to be these weak beings that are either controlled by their emotions or use their sexuality to get what they want or need. Me...

Frankenstein Shelley Use Of And Feminine Roles
1,013 wordsShelley began writing Frankenstein in the company of what has been called her male coterie, including her lover Percy Shelley, Lord Byron and his physician John Polidori.

Callie Khouri, creator of 'Thelma and Louise' is the exception to this rule. Awarded 'Best Original Screenplay', the film challenges our preconceived notions of gender limitations by 'giving a feminine twist to a pair of all too familiar Hollywood genres, the road picture and the buddy picture' (NY Times, 1991). The 'road and buddy movie' usually calls for ...

It seems to me, the plays couldn t have been tragedies if this didn t happen. In the plays we read, important characters evolved into madness, the plot thickened, figures died, and the tragedy prevailed. It was really interesting to see how this series of events would be an ongoing theme in the Shakespearean plays. Even though the same outcome was to be expec...
