My points so far:
- she is cheated on
- victim of the mistakes has made and has to endure these

for keats, id chose the ve of st agnes and lamia
the eve: perhaps gets raped and is manipulated into believing shes in a dream.
lamia: victim in the mortal world, she goes through pain to become beautiful for it to be destroyed by wisdom

any more points or other poems i could discuss??

You could talk about la belle and how she is a victim of the patriarchy and how they view women who express their sexuality in a way that is deemed ‘immoral’. La belle isn’t this mystical creature but a woman who is aware of what she wants sexually.
In The Eve of St Agnes you could talk about how Madeline is also a victim of a patriarchal society, with regards to how Porphyro has sex with her (debatable as to whether is was rape) and is conformed to marriage otherwise she’s seen as an embarrassment to society.
You could also link to the legend of the Eve of St Agnes and how this confirms women to feel as though they need to be rescued by a man.
Linda is also a victim of societal pressures on women throughout the 1950s, to be the adoring wife and never question Willy’s actions.
In Death of a Salesman you could also talk about how ‘The Woman’ has negative undertones and portrays her more of a villain than Willy, therefore a victim (but that’s a stretch)
You could possibly talk about Happy and how he associates sex with women as ‘like bowing’.
I’m in year 12 so I’ve not done the whole course, do you do King Lear ?
