Write a well-developed essay (1,000-1,250 words) that responds to the following topic:
According to the scholar, Ian Watt, marriage in the 18th and 19th centuries “usually leads to a rise in the social and economic status of the bride, not the bridegroom.”
Include references to the role played by word games between characters, and how these word games work into the roles of women during this time (Do the women use these games/misunderstandings to their advantage or are they victims?). Discuss the change of social and economic status of the characters in this book with this in mind.
PLEASE follow the instructions and answer ALL of the questions. This is the third try.
