Dame Van Winkle and Rip are stereotyped characters that have been found in literature- the nagging wife and the henpecked husband. Can you identify these character types in current literature and in popular movies and tv shows? From the short story "Rip Van Winkle"
I can't remember any specific books or movies/tv shows that identify as those character types. Some help please

  • English -

    Since I don't watch current TV or popular movies, I have no clue. But in my opinion, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth fit the description rather well.
