english- adrienne rich and othello
posted by sarah .
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.
I agree! You have a good idea! You might tie that in to the idea in Shakespeare's day that women were regarded as property and , thank heavens, things have changed. Good luck with your essay.
