Why does Frederic agree that Blunt is justified in attacking Florinda? Why does he then hesitate after he determines Florinda might be a virtuous woman? How does this illustrate one of the core themes of The Rover in regard to how women were treated? Fully explain your answer, giving specific examples.
In The Rover, confusion piles upon confusion and anger piles upon anger, all as the result of people assuming that what they see, and believe to be true, actually IS true. The core element at the heart of both the play's theme and its narrative are the complications that arise when assumptions are made. Give three detailed examples of characters in The Rover seeing what they want to see instead of the reality of a situation.
Pedro can easily see through Antonio's mask as they both vie for Angellica's attention. Why can't Pedro see through the disguises of Florinda and Hellena? What about the sisters or Pedro makes it easier for him to be deceived? What greater thematic point of The Rover does this illustrate?
