The Presentation of Gender and Sexuality in Two Comic Works

The Presentation of Gender and Sexuality in Two Comic Works

The title of Shaw's play is taken from the myth of Pygmalion. In this story, Pygmalion scorns all the women around him and makes a sculpture of his ideal woman. The sculpture is so beautiful that he falls in love with it and it comes to life. By titling his play after this story, Shaw calls attention to questions of femininity and gender.The analysis in this work is in relation to male and female representation in The Lion and the Jewel from a Systemic Functional Linguistics and Critical Discourse Analysis lens. The transitivity patterns analysis has allowed us to shed light of how characters construe their experiences through the language they use.

Presentation of Gender and Sexuality in Any Two Modern Comic Works

The title of Shaw's play is taken from the myth of Pygmalion. In this story, Pygmalion scorns all the women around him and makes a sculpture of his ideal woman. The sculpture is so beautiful that he falls in love with it and it comes to life. By titling his play after this story, Shaw calls attention to questions of femininity and gender. As Pygmalion sculpts his ideal woman, so Higgins and Pickering mold Eliza into an ideal lady. These two narratives show how unrealistic and even unnatural the expectations that society often has for women are.These two characters thus demonstrate how women might still exert some agency within an oppressive Victorian society. But despite any redeeming aspects to women's roles in the world of the play, they ultimately cannot escape the constraints of their sexist world. At the end of the play, Eliza must choose between living with Higgins, living with her father, or marrying Freddy. In any case, her future can only be under the control of a man

Compare and Contrast John Webster the Duchess of Malfi and Blphra Behn's the Rover by Beluchukwu Stella

“The Duchess of Malfi” and “The Rover” ends with the restoration of order. In The Duchess of Malfi, the duchess death is avenged by Bosola and her twin brother ran mad. Her eldest child takes his rightful place as heir of Malfi. All the characters that committed atrocities died without any remembrance of them and peace is restored. Order is restored in The Rover when Don Pedro consented to his sisters, Florinda and Hellena marrying the men they love. He did this for the sake of peace and for the safety of his sisters.
