The Marxist lens examines the relationship between social classes: where the power lies and why. When viewing Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared, through this lens, the symbolism behind the setting, the character Roy, and “Red Guy” becomes the show’s most critical features. Tied together by the plot of the show, these critical symbols emphasize the fatal flaws of Western culture. When analyzed through the Marxist lens, Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared by Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling argues that in a capitalistic society, the bourgeoisie class engrains the ideals of capitalism into the minds of those more vulnerable in order to perpetuate a system that encourages unfair distribution of power to the wrong people. But it also highlights that in order for individuals to
Rather than admitting her true feelings, Rosina gives her consent for the alliance in order to please her father due to her fear of him, exemplifying that her diffident personality in the novel leads to the tenuous bonds between them both. Furthermore, Rosina’s father’s obedience leads him to become very stern towards Rosina’s freedom as “Your [Rosina’s] duty is to obey me, and you will learn to like him [Mr. Bradstone] because I wish it… Until then, as I say, you are to remain outdoors: I have given orders to ensure that you do. Disobey me in this, and you will be confined to your room” (135-136). Thomas’s ascendancy over his daughter's decisions is evident as he is very strict and intimidating, Rosina must obey commands in order to live with him or else there are bound to be dire consequences. Instead of fighting for her rights and freedom, Rosina feebly agrees to her father's instructions, thus reinforcing the one-sided relationship between both father and daughter.

“The world is a funny place, no? Sometimes you pick your dog. Sometimes your dog picks you.” Good morning ladies and gentlemen for the AFC, and the quote you have just heard is from the Australian film “Red dog” and is stated to be one of the most powerful quotes in Australian theatre. Australian film has been around for many years and of those years there have been many examples of what some might like to call a masterpiece. Some of these films include the Mad Max series, Gallipoli, Crocodile Dundee but of these films, the film that stands out the most to audiences is the movie Red dog. Red dog is directed by Australian producer Kriv Stenders and was made in 2011. The story takes place during the 1970’s so one would expect to view various counts of racism and sexism but there was no evidense of these themes ever showing as the dialogue had been written for a G rating. It was as if the whole production has had its mouth washed out with soap by there mother for cursing. The reason this film was successful to most was because of the message it portrayed as the movie was based around a young Australian Kelpie named Red dog and how he united a fractured community while searching for his master. The movie is highly regarded today as of the best Australian films as it brings all Australian values to the table. The main reason for the audiences love for this film is because of its portrayal of a character’s loyalty, mateship and the Australian Landscape and this is what occurs throughout the film.
Krogstad feels threatened by her influence because she can be the pivotal deciding factor in whether or not he keeps his job. Nevertheless, Krogstad tries to turn her influence to benefit himself by threatening to reveal her crime if she does not help him to keep his job. This backfires on Krogstad when two women, Nora and Mrs. Linde, manipulate Krogstad into feeling obstinate and therefore he promises never to tell anyone of what Nora has done. Nora's power helped her to remain protected throughout the entire play.
When Krogstad threatens to expose the truth, Nora must use her craftiness to distract Torvald and sway him into letting Krogstad keep his job. Unfortunately, she is not able to change his mind, but she does succeed in diverting his suspicions of her motives. She praises him and lulls him into a false sense of security by telling him that "[n]o one has such good taste as [he has]" and then goes on to ask him if he could "take [her] in hand and decide what [she is] to go as" for the dance. She confesses to him that she "can't do anything without [him] to help [her]". These statements lead him to believe that he is the one to "rescue" her, when it is in fact Nora who is trying to rescue him from dishonour. Later on, when Krogstad puts a letter in Torvald's mail, explaining everything that Nora has done, Nora uses her charms once more. She pretends that she has forgotten the tarantella so that Torvald will spend all his time with her and think nothing of the mail that awaits him. Nora truly believes that by deceiving her husband, she is protecting him from worry. Because of Nora's deception, the person that Torvald believes her to be is quite different from the person she actually is. He believes that she is a "spendthrift," infatuated by expensive things when in reality, she saves her money to pay back Krogstad and buys cheap clothing and gifts. Torvald
