  1   Was the audience’s reaction to the Legree character the response Marx and melodrama wanted to  entice in its viewers?
22     Are the bloodhounds that were let lose and destroyed the stage an allegory for the proletariat overthrowing the social structure, in this case the play itself?

33    Williams talks about the role of violence in our melodramatic society and how it has become about shock now a days. Has it become normalized in society that media talks about violence?

  1. 3. The abundance of violence in today's movies and video games play contribute to the normalization of violence in today's society. The violence seen on TV creates less of a shock because of the way our exposure to violence via video games and blockbuster movies has desensitized us. This desensitization has mitigated society's overall reaction to violence.
