I know this because Kambili confronted her mother after her mom confessed that she poisoned Eugene. On page 290 it states, “ Why did you put it in his tea? I asked Mama,rising. My voice was loud. I was almost screaming.” In this section of Purple Hibiscus Kambili can be characterized as strong because when serious thing like this happen Kambili usually acts as if she was brainwashed not to react.
The short story by Andre Dubus follows Louise from age nine up until the time she becomes a mother. It gives insight to the damage that can be done when loved ones force negative body images on young children. Louise’s mother starts her on a self-destructive path, which Louise will never overcome and continually affects her life. This is reinforced by the similar opinions of her relatives and friends who make her feel that she will only be truly loved if she is thin. The prevalent theme of Dubus’ “The Fat Girl” is the destructive way society views food addiction and how it adversely affects women.
Lady Macbeth is shown as a cunning, atypical Elizabethan woman who, for some cases lead Macbeth to go aggro for the crown. Although Macbeth is also to blame, he allowed himself to be consumed and mesmerized by his own wife’s tricks. Lady Macbeth influences Macbeth with her murderous ambition. We can see her chaotic intentions when she says “tis to love the babe that milks me - I would, while it was smiling in my face, have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums and dashed its brains out had I sworn as you”. The use of baby as the subject to brutal murder gives an uneasy feeling because babies are seen as innocent to both modern and Elizabethan audiences which allows the audience to see that lady Macbeth is not afraid to kill anyone even a baby for what she promised.
Pearl feels her mother’s shame and in order for Dimmesdale to achieve salvation he must publicly confess. Dimmesdale finally announces his sin of adultery at the Election Day Procession on the scaffolding. As Dimmesdale was dying, Pearl leans in for a kiss on his lips. Hawthorne states “A spell was broken. The great scene of grief, in which the wild infant bore a part, had developed all of her sympathies; and as her tears fell upon her father’s cheeks, they were the pledge that she would grow up amid human joy and sorrow, nor forever do battle with the world, but be a woman in it.” (197).
As the days goes by his family became more frustratuate on him. Gregor’s sister, Grete, treats him with kindness and at the end, she also was the one who confront to Mr.Samsa and Mrs. Samsa that they need to get rid of the monster that is living them. “‘Father, Mother,’ said his sister, hitting the table with her hand as introduction, ‘we can’t carry on like this. Maybe
She has been tortured, beaten, and raped by her slave masters. Sethe has also been abandoned by her own mother who was too a victim of the atrocities of slavery. Sethe’s master’s nephews beat and molest her while she is pregnant with her fourth child, Denver, mutilating her so gravely that “her back skin had been dead for years” (Morrison 18). Even though her experiences have scarred her, Sethe is determined and hopeful to attain a happy and safe life with and for her children. Sethe constantly uses the words “they took my milk” to describe her violation between the boys (Morrison 17).
Lastly people take Mr.Fowlers side because of Franks innocence in the situation. In a short story called, “Is Innocence Irrelevant”, it talks about about innocence being relevant in criminal situations the author says, “The defendant 's guilt or innocence is at least one vital considerations in determining whether collateral relief should be available to a convicted defendant” (Friendly). Frank had met a girl who he eventually fell in love with named Mary Ann Strout. Mary Ann is soon to be divorced to Richard Strout. Richard finds out about Frank and Mary Ann and murders him.
Later in scene, Lady Macbeth states that if she had made such a promise as Macbeth did to her, she would “dash the brains out” of her own child as “it was smiling in her fail”. However Lady Macbeth makes it absolutely clear that if he is brave enough, it is impossible to fail. These quotes show how Lady Macbeth is controlling her husband and she proves herself be the most responsible of Duncan’s death. Some people may say that three witches are the most responsible of the death of Duncan. Macbeth never considered murdering king Duncan until he saw the prophecies of the witches.
Minus becoming impure, Ophelia is left brokenhearted and distraught as Hamlet breaks his promises to her of marriage. This broken promise is also one of the stones that later drives her mad. So a reader may find it interesting that even in her state of madness she is able to communicate her heartbreak and touch down on topics most would never consider. While Ophelia does show some good examples of feminism, Queen Gertrude shows even more compelling evidence of feminist lens in the form of Gertrude holding the perfect image of a proper women. The reader can see the feminist lens in Gertrude through her love for her son and when she is always being overlooked by the men in her life.
Iago and his wife Emilia enter the room to comfort Desdemona. Desdemona weeps telling Iago that Othello hates her. Iago sat by her saying “Fie, there is no such man. It’s impossible” (IIII.ii.157) trying to reassure her. Iago uses manipulation in a different way here.
