Though as much as she wants to question Pearl being her daughter, she realize that Pearl is a living reminder of her “sin” she has committed. In the novel “the talk of the neighboring townspeople...had given out that poor little Pearl was a demon offspring...ever since old Catholic times…
Because of this, the daughter has turned into a disobedient girl and will do anything to go against the wishes of her mother. This disobedience only adds to the conflict which is not good for either of the two. The mother then finds out that she has breast cancer. Lola, the daughter, has no sense of empathy towards the mother. They still fight like crazy.
She looks at her mom as a monster and “monsters are half and half borderline creatures who horrify precisely because they are at once human and not human natural and unnatural” (Pitchford 61). She thinks her mother isn't human, because no real human could put her through the amount of pain and trouble her mom has put her through. Also, she is struggling with the idea that her mom has good qualities and bad qualities, but the bad seem to shine through more which deem her a monster. Since both main characters felt like they couldn't escape their mothers it drove a wedge their relationships. On account of dealing with constant bad memories and moments, it left them with a bad relationship with their mother, which in turn also left a lasting mark on the
Revenge is shown throughout Arthur Miller’s The Crucible in very negative ways. Revenge is aimed at enemies, friends, even neighbors once Abigail and her group realized how much power they had, and for greedy self-interest. Everything was done for revenge, and it all started to cover up what Abigail and her sister had done. Abigail Williams used revenge on Elizabeth Proctor, because she hoped to split Elizabeth and John, so her love for John would be acceptable in society. Ann Putnam had accused Rebecca Nurse of the death of her seven babies.
Further in the book, the townspeople continuously refer to Hester’s child, Pearl, as a ‘devil child,’ constantly connecting her to her mothers sin. These two characters are constantly treated with injustice and unfairness because of one sin committed years
In La Journée de la Jupe, I would argue that Sonia Bergerac is considered to possesses the ‘outlaw’ emotions as expressed by Alison Jaggar in “Love and Knowledge: Emotion in Feminist Epistemology”. As Jaggar states, “people who experience conventionally unacceptable, or…. ‘outlaw’ emotions, often are subordinated individuals who pay a disproportionately high price for maintaining the status quo.” (166) We can see that Sonia is one of these subordinated individuals because Sonia is obviously mistreated by her students, who barrage her with sexist and racist abuse, often violently. This led to her taking her classroom hostage, which eventually led to her death, making her an “individual who pay(s) a disproportionately high price for maintain the status quo.” (166) These ideas also help explain how Sonia’s students eventually came to understand and support her point of view because, “conventionally inexplicable emotions, particularly though not exclusively those experienced by women, may lead us to make subversive observations that challenge dominant conceptions of the status quo.” (167) These emotions led her to make observations and state facts that challenged the dominant ideology within her room of students, affecting their status
For example, Abigail Williams had an affair with John Proctor who was married to Elizabeth Proctor at the time and got discovered. However, Abigail Williams still “loved” John Proctor and was rejected. Later, she accuses Elizabeth Proctor for witchcraft, an action she uses as her revenge. These acts of cruelty ultimately affect all the victims and their families in this play as their consequence is to be hung. The vulnerability and sense of helplessness are all revealed in the victims as they are facing their
When Jane 's aunt unfairly confines Jane to the Red Room, Jane launches into a verbal diatribe against her aunt. Jane states that she doesn 't love her aunt or even acknowledge their familial bond when she doesn 't address her aunt by the title of "aunt." Even as a child, Jane has a strong moral standard.

This shows Lady Macbeth going through lengths just to become royalty and this shows she is ruthless because she is only thinking about herself. Besides, the idea of dashing out the brains of a child deliberately shows Lady Macbeth is willing to killing her own blood, which is cold because usually mothers have a stronger and more intimate bond with their babies. Therefore, Lady Macbeth is shown as a ruthless person, who is very controlling, however there is a shift in her character at the end of the play, she becomes weaker. In the beginning of the play Lady Macbeth manipulated Macbeth into doing things he didn’t want to do, by targeting is insecurities (his masculinity). But, now her persuasion no longer works on Macbeth, for example at banquet Macbeth was acting crazy and Lady Macbeth challenging his manhood by asking him if he were a man.
There is a movie or everyone, and their fears. Whether it was animals, clowns or even small children, Stephen King knew how to make it scary. What made him one of the best was, there were different focuses of fear on each movie he made; you could see it in the movie trailers. The movie Carrie was released in 1976. It was about a high school girl that was bullied at school and had to come home to an unstable mother.
In a 2013 speech to the UN, Malala said, “[The extremists] are afraid of women. The power of the voice of women scares them,” a statement comparable to Irene’s tone throughout the entirety of the memoir that speaks to the ultimate strength of femininity. She even remarks on how a flirtatious, “girly” attitude can be used, “[to] destroy your enemies” (Opdyke 246). Furthermore, both Malala and Irene suffered for others; a thirteen year old Yousafzai survived a bullet through the skull, and Gut prolonged separation from family
In this quote Grendel’s mother is described as “monstrous” or in other words evil. She is portrayed as a crazy monster who has no control over her own actions.
