GCSE Educating Rita

The first 200 words of this essay...

In this essay I will comment on why Rita wants to change and the devices that Willy Russell uses to show these changes to the audience. "Educating Rita" by Willy Russell tells the story of "Rita", a twenty-six year old hairdresser, who is trying to find herself and the changes she goes through to do just that.

As Rita enters Frank office she uses very informal language. A lot different from the ordinary student. Rita's first, clumsy entry reflects her social inferiority rattling at the door knob and unable to get in. Finding it difficult to break into Frank's world, her strong Liverpudlion accent clearly identifies her as coming from a completely different background. However, there is an air determination about her which Frank finds impossible to ignore. She is like a "breath of air", different from all the other students, and it is this freshness which is so appealing. When talking about the picture of a nude religious scene hanging on Frank's wall, Rita asks her tutor whether or not he thinks of it as erotic. On hearing Frank's reply, "I suppose it is", Rita's reaction is to state, "There's no suppose about it Look at those tits".
