Alejandra was defined by her actions, such as when she refused to elope with John Grady in favor of remaining dedicated to her family. She shouldn't be defined by her words because she often bragged about her rebellious spirit, but didn't back it up with action. Though Alejandra was constantly manipulated by her grand aunt, who kept her wayward actions in check, she remained dedicated to her and to her father. This allegiance to her family eventually became her weakness, as she abandoned John Grady to follow her aunt's wishes, leaving behind a man she wanted to be with in order to maintain good relations with her kin. She was also made weak by her curious spirit; her relationship with the American, John Grady, threatened her relationship with her family.
These actions have consequences, just like John said, “If you exploit people they become less likely to cooperate with you voluntarily” (PsychologyToday). We can relate this to “A Good Man is Hard to Find” because that is exactly what the grandmother did to her son Bailey. Bailey did not pay much attention to his mother because he already knew how manipulative and selfish she could be. The only reason why he did everything he did was for his kids. The grandmother would use the kids as targets to get what she wanted, because she knew Bailey would listen to them and not
To begin, if she would have never screamed the Misfits name when she noticed him, he would not have seen them and felt like he had to kill the entire family and they might have gotten away. This is another instance of how the Grandmother is a
When he tells his wife that he still has faith in their marriage, and to go see the pastor to talk about their situation the wife turns him down telling him “I don’t love you anymore”. This hurts Mr. Redd tremendously leaving him with bitterness that took over his life. This kept him away from starting a new relationship with the pharmacist in his town because he remembered all the pain he felt with his wife’s betrayal. The last actor who experienced PTSD, which was a part of anxiety was Ronnie Morgan. He was in the National Guard, and left his girlfriend Rae behind to serve his country.
He wondered how much longer he could keep avoiding people, lying to them. How much longer could he keep dodging the inevitable?” Meredith Ward is another person who is affected by her husband’s death. Due to Charlie Ward’s death she starts to feel lonely and empty. The novel reads, “She looked up at her mother’s face and for the first time realized how terribly lonely her mother must be…But Jenna knew that her mother’s friends could never fill the void left by her father.” In this quote, Jenna is observing her mother’s behavior and is realizing that Meredith Ward and Charlie Ward had a special relationship that could never be replaced and that causes her to feel disconsolate. Also, Meredith Ward is starting to become sleep-deprived because she has no one there for her.
As The Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen defies the capital for the betterment of her people, so do many other literary figures. Some of these characters include Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn and Sophocles’s Antigone. Both of these characters convey the theme of rejecting society, as they rebel against society or authority to stay true to themselves. Huckleberry ignores society because he wants his independence and doesn’t want to be held back by anyone. On the other hand, Antigone only stands up to her uncle, the king, because she wants to bury and pay her respects to her dead brother, who rebelled against the city.
One piece of evidence that supports this claim is from “Ohio Man’s Shooting Of Ailing Wife Raises Questions About ‘Mercy Killings.” One quote is “...meant only to end the suffering of his wife, Barbara, 65.” This relates to Of Mice and Men because she was going to die anyway and he wanted to end her suffering. This is exactly what George wanted for Lennie. If he didn’t kill him Curley would’ve killed him and then he would’ve died without dignity. There are two reasons Curley wants to kill Lennie. The first reason is because he is a big guy, and Curley hates big guys.
Sam and Pilar from a young age had naturally assumed their parents not wanting them together due to racist beliefs of the other’s culture. However, it was much more than that. As Sam throughout the movie searches to get a better understanding of Buddy Deeds, he learns his father had a long time mistress to which most of the town knew. To make matters worse, his father’s mistress is Mercedes Cruz, Pilar Cruz mother. Sam was cautioned to not go poking around in the past as he could learn things he did not want to know [find quote for this].
Lennie continued to play with her hair after she said to stop. He wouldn’t let go which caused her to worry. Lennie began to panic when she began to scream. He covered her mouth to muffle her cries for help with his large hands and eventually snapped her neck, killing her too. “I done a real bad thing,” knowing he has done something George would be upset about, Lennie runs away to the place George told him to go if he was in trouble.
“If I’d went, I wouldn’t be livin’ like this, you bet” (Steinbeck 84) Accordingly, she felt unfair for her life and doesn’t want to get stuck on the ranch but she knew she could do nothing about it. Therefore, Curley’s wife had told her suffering to Lennie, though she knows Lennie wouldn’t understand everything, but this still proves she was trying to find connections on Lennie. In the novel, Crooks had tolerated the most isolation and discrimination from others.
