Greetings!

It is certainly more of a challenge to read and write assignments in a language which is not native to you. While there is really no substitute for reading and studying the book yourself so that you can understand the plot and characters well enough to write about them, you should find some help in the form of study guides by doing a Google search using "The Things They Carried" by Tim O'Brien as search terms. Putting the title of the book in quotation marks will help to narrow your search.

I hope this helps!

The Taming of the Shrew is arguably the most famous play ever about the battle of the sexes. You might want to compare how women were viewed in the 16th century compared with today. Was Kate a "liberated" woman for her time? Would she be considered an abused wife by today's standards? You might also examine the institution of marriage -- how has it changed since the days when marriages were arranged?

Please let me know if I can be of further help!

Thanks,

thanks for giving me suggestion, that's really good topic. I am happy for women today that they are not being abused anymore.
For further help, i might need somethings like evidences related to the topic that i am about to write.

As you said, women in 16th are liberated. Now the women have changed their social life. And they are not abused by anyone anymore.

You might also examine the institution of marriage -- how has it changed since the days when marriages were arranged?
This question seems little bit difficult. All i read from the book, Katherine was humiliated by Pechuctrio, the instituion of marriage you meant is economics marriage ? But somehow, you gave me very good ideal. Thanks a lot

I'm glad the ideas were helpful. Just to clarify, "the institution of marriage" is simply a term used to refer to marriage itself. There are many parts of marriage you could look at. Economics, certainly, is one aspect. The law is another. Laws which used to be against women now protect them.

I do think it would be oversimplifying to say that women are no longer abused. There are many stories in the news about women being abused by husbands, boyfriends and others. The difference nowadays is that it is against the law, while in the 16th century, it was looked at as a man's right to control his woman's behavior. That might be something your essay could address, if you feel it fits in.

Best of luck with your essay!

Thanks,

Greetings!

I couldn't quite tell from your post just what your questions are. Can you be more specific?

The assignment seems to be designed to get you thinking about the dilemma of being truthful when you are in a war-time situation, and also the difficulty of deciding what is true and what isn't. I haven't read this particular book, but it looks like you need to consider how truthful the main characters are, given their situations, and use some scenes to illustrate your points.

I hope this gives you some idea where to start. If you want to post with an expanded definition of what you need, please do so!

Good luck!
