Treadwell, Machinal (Scenes 1-5) -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

Young Woman - Do you get used to it, - so after a while it doesnt matter?? Or dont you? Does it always matter? YOu ought to be in love, oughtnt you, Ma? You must be in love, mustnt you, Ma? That changes everything doesnt it? or does it? Maybe if you just like the person it's all right- is it? When he puts his hands on me, my blood turns cold.

I feel that this young woman is in quite a bind. to marry for love or security is the question she faces. I feel bad that she keeps getting hassled by her boss to get married. All she wants is to be in love
