None of this seemed right in Hamlet’s eyes. This is just one of the many things Hamlet says about this but his mother takes this to heart and gets strongly offended. Later on when Hamlet puts on the play Mousetrap, his mother takes even more offense to how he was indirectly referring to his uncle the entire time. In a private conversation with Hamlet after the play, she tells him “Hamlet, thou hast thy father much offended” (pg. 72, l. 9) with father referring to his uncle.
In Go Set a Watchman, when Jean Louise goes into her father’s office and finds a racially motivated pamphlet: The Black Plague. Devastated by its contents and confused why it is in her father’s office, she “... took the pamphlet by one of its corners, held it like she would hold a dead rat by the tail, and walked into the kitchen.” (Lee 101-102) Upon entering the kitchen, Jean Louise asks about the pamphlet and learns from her aunt Alexandria that her father is apart of the County Citizens’ Council. This is ultimately a Klan group with a pamphlet filled with Racist garbage who discuss the evils of black people and living in an integrated society with black
"Oh, I wouldn 't do that," she said, surprised.”(19) Mildred’s inability to consider her unhappiness or believe that there could be something wrong with her life ultimately lead to her stagnancy as a character, remaining unhappy until the end: “Leaning into the wall as if all of the hunger of looking would find the secret of her sleepless unease there. Mildred, leaning anxiously, nervously, as if to plunge, drop, fall into that swarming immensity of colour to drown in its bright happiness. The first bomb struck.”(Bradbury
At the beginning of the story, the author describes how Granddaddy is very patient when it comes to Granny Cora, his wife. Granny is a control freak who does not like when people touch her things, so when the cameramen show up, she is very suspicious. After a long day of hunting, Granddaddy returns home and right away, Granny tells him to tell the cameramen to get out of her flower bed. At the very end of the story, after Granddaddy smashes the camera, he says, “‘You standin in the misses’ flower bed,’ say Granddaddy. ‘ This is our own place’” (Bambara 7).
Once this confrontation happens, the grandmother first attempts to be saved for her impending fate was stating “You wouldn’t shoot a lady, would you?” (O’Connor pg. 208) and acting helpless by taking her handkerchief and wiping her eyes with it. This demonstrates to the reader just how desperate the grandmother is to escape and also displaying how she is willing to act so falsely to demonstrate to the misfit how much of a lady she is, when in reality she nothing but selfish and inconsiderate of others. The author starts to relay this repetition of the grandmother attempts to escape the misfit and also sets an atmosphere between the grandmother and misfit. One example of this is found when the misfit partners take bailey and Wesley away, the grandmother pretends to act devastated and cries out for baily but to the reader’s amusement the grandmother is looking at the misfit the whole time, almost trying to convince him about her lady like virtue of caring of family.
In the story it says, “ ‘I know, I know. You’ve said that a hundred times,’ she snapped. ‘What did you say?’ He asked, pushing his newspaper aside.” Maria’s conflict connects to the theme of the story because she is being ungrateful towards her father and wants to grow up too fast. In the text it also says, “Maybe he would do something crazy, like crash the car on purpose, to get back at her, or fall asleep and run the car into an irrigation ditch. And it would be her fault.” This connects to theme because, Maria needs to be thankful for her family and, she is not acting very thankful according to this quote.
Beowulf’s second epic battle is against another monster—Grendel’s mother. Heorot Hall went from celebrating Beowulf’s victory in the epic battle against Grendel to lose their precious victory trophy—Grendel’s hand.

After Abner has tasked Sarty to fetch kerosine for the barn burning, Sarty thinks to himself, “I could run on and on and never look back, never need to see his [Abner’s] face again” (Faulkner 198). In this quote, Sarty contemplates running away because he hates abiding by his dad’s rules, which, again, shows the strained relationship between Abner and Sarty. By running away, Sarty would go directly against Abner’s lesson of being loyal to blood. Virginia C. Fowler’s “Faulkner’s ‘Barn Burning’: Sarty’s Conflict Reconsidered,” Fowler asserts, “By insisting that Sarty be loyal to ‘blood,’ Abner makes the boy aware, first, of loyalty as a conscious mode of behavior, and second, of the fact that there are perhaps other modes of behavior one could follow.” Fowler observes that Sarty consciously recognizes his ability to deviate from his father’s moral code which then frees
She says she “wants time to function as a power wash”, and remove the memory of the ride from her mind before she enters her house. This stanza shows how distressed the narrator feels about the comment, proving that her method of coping is not viable, and that she cannot let go of the small instances of racism she experiences. Her attempts to ignore times when she is offended do not work, and in that regard, are little better than John Henryism. She still does not confront racism, which would allow her some closure on the matter, but rather than fight against
