Conflicts in the Opening Act and Resolutions in the End of Harold Brigh
How does Harold Brighouse present the differences and conflicts in the opening act and what resolutions be sh feature in the end?Hobsons Choice is a free rein indite by Harold Brighouse based in the Victorian times. This may be a reason why there were so many differences and conflicts presented in the play because it allows you to look at the historical issues and the hearty issues. The opening act is brim with differences and conflicts, well-nigh obvious and some subtle. The conflicts were based upon people crossing the social boundaries and going against expectations that the Victorians had set upon us. The differences were mainly believing whether those boundaries should be crossed or not. The differences caused the conflicts. The beliefs caused different actions and those actions caused conflict. The play has two main characters, both inviolable willed fix and daughter, Hobson and Maggie. Hobson is a prosperous Salford boot maker but also an bootless tyrant and spends mo st of his time drinking whilst his three daughters run his home(a) and his shop. Maggie is his eldest daughter, who is immensely efficient and a lot more strong minded then her father. These two characters show the most difference amongst each former(a) and any other conflict caused was mainly because of their differences. counterpoint was not just betwixt Maggie and her father but also between other characters too. For example, Willie and Maggie, Jim and Hobson, Ada and Maggie and even Alice and Vickey against Maggie. You can see that these conflicts had either Maggie or Hobson in them, the strongest characters in the play. Alice showed the initiative sign of conflict in the first page of the play. Alice had problems with her father drinking and returning home late eac... ...ed flop at the end and it was a huge leap shown in Willie by Brighouse to show that Hobson really had lost his authority to be disobeyed by his own worker who was land class and then Willie to be suppo rted by Maggie showed that Hobson had lost all his support.Harold Brighouse created such an atmosphere to show how people were in the Victorian times. He created characters that could represent many types of people at that time. For example, Hobson stand for the middle class man, Maggie the strong willed daughter, Mrs Hepsworth the upper class woman, Ada the lower class women, Willie the timid, hard working man and so on. These characters had many differences and attributes which collided with other personalities. This difference between the characters was why the conflicts occurred and Brighouse managed to change some personalities to make some conflicts die.
