In the play Whos Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? We are faced with 2 characters that are a main example of learned behavior. Martha and George are the two primary examples of how a person would grow up with learned behavior. Martha is the daughter of a dean of a college and can basically get away with anything that happens and his daughter is taught.
When Love Hurts. Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf is a disturbing and powerful work. Ironically, it is disturbing and powerful for many of the same reasons. As the audience watches George and Martha tear savagely at each other with the knives of hurled words, sharpened on pain and aimed to draw blood, the way in which these two relentlessly go at each other is awful to see, yet.
