In history, the women didn’t have much role about ruining a country, but we can see some of them in England. Most of us only know queen Elizabeth I as a famous woman in English history, but now we learned another woman “Queen Victoria”. As a woman, she reigned the country long years, and she brought many different trends. I really suprised that this woman was the first woman who put on wedding dress. Now, every woman follow her. She was not only affected the women in her period, but also affected the other women even many years later.
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is very interesting story . Although the mariner killed the albatross, he was able to surviveand he lived, but others who are in ship died. There were supernatural elements and creatures in story. As we see in many literarure works, this story has religious symbols. In history, many people wrote stories about sin, god,satan etc. I saw that the religion was very dominant for them.
When I was a child, my mother always told the story of Robinson Crusoe, and I suppose that he was a very talented, helpful and good person, but when we watch the film and read the quotes from the book, I realized that he was not a good person as I think. he was very ambitious and loves money. Also he want to rule all the people in island. I understand that people are not the same as we know them. The story is not only a book for children, but also has many meanings.
Throughout the history, people were not same with each other. people always try to separete everyone with class differences and social status. When we read A Modest proposal, we can see that working class had very bad condition, and their children had the same problem. If we think the past, it was very important to write a proposal for protecting the people who are from different classes. Also, it was very useful for government to see their mistakes.
Paradise Lost is a story which is very similar to us. In childhood, everyone must have listened a story about Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve believed the Satan, and they were send to the Earth. Adam was the first human and the first person who commits a sin with believing the Satan. Maybe, it was a signal for people to disbelieve in the Satan, but as human beings, most people believed him.
When I read To Coy His Mistress and the sonnet (on his blindness ), I realized that some people chose to live at the moment, and others waited for the other world. It is not good to say one opinion is superior than the other one, but If I were them, I wouldn’t want to look life from one perspective. I want to try different tastes of life and I give equal importance to everything.
