h.According to Famous Actress, men associated with theatre use the theatre actresses to make their estranged wives jealous to woo them back. Do you agree with her argument? Why? Why not?
Answer: No, I don’t agree with the argument. Some men may use their relationships with actresses in theatre to make their estranged wives jealous so they can win them back. It’s important to note that many men develop professional and respectful relationships with the actresses they work with.
But in this story, the Actress is telling this thing to the woman to convince her about their relationship. She wants to prove that people are misusing theatre artists to secure their love.
Additionally, using another person as a tool to manipulate or control a former partner is unethical and can be harmful to both parties involved. It should be based on mutual respect, trust, and open communication.
In conclusion, the claims of famous actresses may be true in some cases, but they are not necessarily representative of all men in the theatre industry and should not be used to generalise. It is also important to emphasise that using others as a means to an end is problematic and can have negative consequences.
No, I don’t think the logic of the Famous Actress that the men associated with theatre use the theatre actresses to make their estranged wives jealous to woo them back is true. The wives of men who work in theatre tend to be ordinary, gullible, and prone to being misled by a clever ruse. Alfred also could have an affair with that woman trying to win back her affection by making her jealous, but they were having a serious and immoral relationship as we saw in the play. It is not the case that he uses the famous actress to provoke jealousy in his wives.
