Educating Rita

Posted by lednum on January 8, 2007

In educating Rita, one of the main characters, Frank, deals with several issues including jelousy, love and depression. Frank, one of the protagonists in willy russels play ‘Educating Rita’ , is shown to wrestle many different strong feelings such as depression, jelousy, failed ambition and possibly even love. Frank ‘copes’ with his emotins by drinking heavily. Although this endears him to Rita, inititially, it seems to bring about Franks self-destruction or possible re-birth at the ambigous ending of the play. By emaximing the word choice and actions of Frank and Rita and looking at the themes within the play, i hope to explore the way in which Russell deals with these strong feelings.
