THE PRESENTATION OF GENDER AND SEXUALITY IN TWO PLAYS YOU HAVE STUDIED The aim of this work is to pinpoint the way female and male are represented through a lexico grammatical analysis with a special focus on its transitivity system. Characters’ inner and outer would as they use language to enable them to build a mental picture of reality, to make sense of what goes around them and inside then. I am going to use two works to present this female and male representation or gender and sexuality. Those works are “IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST BY OSCAR WILDE AND “OUR HUSBAND HAS GONE MAD AGAIN

In Ben Johnson’s Volpone, Celia represents the epitome of femininity in renaissance literature. She is beautiful, submissive, religious and faithful. Celia is quite and helpless to resist her husband’s control over her every moment. Although it is disturbing that her gender renders her victim to male characters such as corvine and Volpone who treat her as though she is a possession to the won. Corvine treats her like a prisoner by keeping her locked in her room. We see how she was sexually harassed by volpone, because of her husband’s excess greediness; the matter was taken to court where she appeals to heaven to expose him. Because masculinity and femininity cannot exist without each other, both men and women must be voluntarily or forcibly complicit to function within this binary. By examining female sexuality and morality, it is not only the characterization of Celia but also, that of lady would-be politic, Johnson reveals how women are caught in a double-bind within the patriarchal structure of renaissance England. They must either conform to their feminine roles or risk being alienated from the communities. Celia, the wife of corvine (one of Volpone’s victims) has entirely conformed to the feminine role of a proper married woman. Celia latter stands for herself, this is seen in act three when she protests corvine for prostituting her out to volpone in other to gain his riches. She says to corvine, “sir, let me beseech you, affect not these strange trials; if you doubt my chastity, why lock me up forever……” in this situation, Celia only hopes for God to rescue her from this situation. This essay seeks to unravel the reasons as to why masculinity is threatened by female strength and autonomy, not to victimize the female characters within Johnson’s play.

Gender is the social identities, expectations and privileges different cultures construct for members of the different biological sexes. Gender expectations, which vary greatly between cultures, establish the boundaries of acceptable individual social behavior such as dress, marriage, property rights, household duties and “sexuality” one’s self-expression as a sexual being. Unlike biological sex, cultures may accept or assign many more than two genders. Women in some Albanian communities, who take on a male identity in order to follow traditionally male household roles, are an example of a third gender. Let’s look at the definition of gender and sexuality.

Firstly, I will start by saying what Jacoban revenge tragedy is all about. Jacoban drama of revenge tragedy is named after Jacobus the Latin translation James and is connective the theoretical works created during the reign of James 1 (1603-1625) in England. The Jacoban play evolves out of Elizabethan drams. The Jacoban revenge tragedy lead to be cheaply sentimental featuring things like sexual deprivation and violence in most of the revenge tragedy, the revenge are always killed. It features madness, disguise, violence, murders. Protagonist in Jacoban revenge tragedy are more villain than hero.

In terms of sexuality, the women in this work are not object of sex like the women in Soyinka, the women here are so self determined in the sense that they respected by this husbands, they are not weak like Sidi and Sadiku in Soyinka. So their husbands respects the facts that those women are their wives and treats them like one so there noting much to say about sexuality in Oscar wild. So from this work by Oscar Wild, we can see the fact that no matter how a woman tries, she will still be submissive and will still be under the man.
