Forced Marriage Continues in Many Countries

Young girls forced into marriage is still a reality in many parts of the world, and it doesn't just happen in developing nations. Activists, African first la...
Nick Cabral's insight:

As you can see this might not be exactlty the same as AMSND's forced marriage but you can see that this is still continuing to go on in many other countries and i also found this interesting because it says these were people born in britian but are indian descent so this shows that forced marriages were originated from Britian in the Elizabthean Era.

Literary Critisism- Comic Relief

Literary Critisism- Comic Relief | Nick's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Nick Cabral's insight:

This literary criticism focuses on the young lovers and how they aren't really romantic protagonists. They are used for comic relief because they are always comic victims. Shakespeare creates opposite character traits and similar names to confuse his audience. He shows the difference between the mature royal couple and the immature immortal couples. Often, the young lovers act like puppets because they are controlled by magic and the power of love. Shakespeare's made these characters the true comic relief of the play.

Jealousy Image.

Jealousy Image. | Nick's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Nick Cabral's insight:

This is a picture of Hermia while she is running in the forest with Lysander trying to get away from the people and trying to start new with her true love while not knowing that Helena was lurking in the darkness.The above image was created as an interpretation of the love conflict within A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Lysander, in love with Hermia, is on his knees, demonstrating his love and faithfulness to her. While Helena is in the bak hiding her jealousy. Helena is deeply in love with Demetrius, however, Demetrius loves Hermia, who claims she does nothing to make him feel that way. Out of jealousy, Helena tells Demetrius that Hermia and Lysander plan to escape to the woods, leading to Demetrius’ decision to follow them. The picture shows the jealous look on Helena’s face, while Hermia and Lysander are both gazing into each others eyes. I also liked the fact that it was dark because i implied that the darkness could represent her anger and jealousy towards both of them.

Forced Marriages in the Elizabethan Era.

Forced Marriages in the Elizabethan Era. | Nick's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Nick Cabral's insight:

Souce- This article was interesting to me because it told me what had to be expected by a women in this time. Women were lower in order and were there for a certain purpse. Women didnt have a choices and they were told what to do seen in this picture. This image that i picked is very symbolic towards a midsummer nights dream. For many different reasons one being men overrule over women, Women are for marrying and caring for children and the most impirtant one forcing someone into a marraige. This image takes us into A midsummer nights dream when Hermias father is forcing her to marry Demetrius because he thinks this is best. If she doesnt marry him by Theseus's and Hippolytas wedding in 4 days then she will be sent to a nunnery.

Womens roles and Expectations.

Womens roles and Expectations. | Nick's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Nick Cabral's insight:

Nick Cabral's insight:        

HISTORICAL ARTICLE: This article contrasts the women found in Elizabethan fiction with the actual women of the time. The women in literature were, "heroic and mean; infinitely beautiful and hideous.In real life, however, these women of men's imaginations did not exist." The author explores the limitations and expectations that were forced upon these women, and how these poor women were forced to marry the person that their father thought was right for them. This article basically explains what womans roles were and what they were expected to do i this time period.
