english- adrienne rich and othello
posted by sarah on .
I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or any type of thesis statements I could use for the following essay topic:
Discuss women in Othello- Desdemona, emilia, Bianca- from the point of Adrienne rich. In what ways is each a victim of patriarchy?
I thought I would spend a paragraph on each women saying how they are a victim of patriarchy. I feel that Rich thinks women shouldn't be submissive to their husbands but should wake up, break the mold, and be independent.
Here's a pretty good article about Rich:
I'd say you're on the right track. Just be sure you spell the words correctly:
woman = 1
women = 2 or more
Here are a couple of really good sites on writing thesis statements. Once you've drafted one, please repost and someone here will comment on your ideas.
