1. Analyze the relationship between Ada and Baines in The Piano. Is it rape? Explain.
The relationship between Ada and Baines in The Piano could be describe as an attention that might lead to rape but then again it is quite confusing, it seems that they had some kind of a deal between sex and piano. Later it doesn't seem like it was about the piano anymore,she liked the attention Baines was giving to herm. She felt in love with him, had sex with him and wherever she was he was in her mind. I believe she felt that Baines was giving her more attention than her own husband adding to the fact her husband denied to bring the one thing she loved the most (the Piano), Baines did bring the piano and gave it to her. I believe that lead to their relationship.
