Franklin Thomas described our future in a simple quote; "One day our descendants will think it incredible that we paid so much attention to our gender instead of the unique identities of each of us as complex human beings." Thomas merely told us that we would always look at us as female or male, but after we learn a lesson we see our selves has complex human beings. After we realize out life lesson, our descendants look at us with greater respect, we also learn to respect ourselves. They also learn from us, creating a cycle that helps all of us to look at things differently and with greater respect. This report will show how three pieces of literature disagrees or agrees with the quote. .
In the poem, "Daddy", Sylvia Plath says that there are women who find themselves without the equipment to deal with oppressive and controlling men. Which in turn shows only that she only looked at the gender of her and the men. She didn't understand that no human being should be treated like that; she didn't realize she could change things. She thought of herself has a useless female, thus having to deal with the controlling and dominating male. In combination to the quote, Plath shows she only saw her father has a male, and after he died and she married someone just like him, she realized how complex his character really was. .
This poem is male authority and control versus the right of a female to be herself, to make choices, and be free of male domination. We has females know that males will always dominate us, so just like Plath, we tend to judge men only by their gender and that there is no way they could be unique human beings for the way they have treated us in the past. Jut like how Plath used Nazi Germany to her father. Plath's conflicts begin in her relationship with her father and continue with her husband. The poem shows just how women are going to try to change he world. Women look at this poem for help.
