She only needs one reference to Harry Potter and then everyone knows who she is. She uses a lot of energy on humor in the first part. Maybe because she is nervous, which she indicates that she is with “But the weeks of fear and nausea I have endured at the thought of giving this commencement address have made me lose weight. A win-win situation!” (Page 1, column 1, line 7-10) maybe she wants to get rid of her nervousness or perhaps she just wants a bond with the audience before talking more serious. She uses ethos here because the speech is from a graduation and she’s an expert in graduating because she experienced it herself and she has an excellent life now.
In this part, Curley’s wife talks to Candy about how his dreams are not going to work out. She says, “I seen too many of you guys...I know you guys” (Steinbeck, pg 79). This proves that Curley’s wife has been at that house for a long time with no one to talk to, and it’s caused her to have a constant need for attention. The only way she knows how to get attention is by messing with people. Curley’s wife tries to explain to Candy that his dreams will never work out which portrays that she deals with her attention by bring people down.
At first, the story-teller tries to fight against the growing oppression. She even challenges John’s treatment by writing the diary. Yet, while one part of her may believe John wrong, another part believes that since he is the man, the doctor, and therefore the authority, he may be right. Because they hold unequal power positions in the relationship and in society, she lacks the courage and self-esteem to assert her will over his even though she knows that his “treatment” is harming her. When he tells to practice in self-control over her irritation with him, the effect is ironic; he controls everything and even makes her feel ungrateful for such a care.
Mrs. Figard reports that Shellbe is confrontational and defensive when it comes to being corrected or asked to complete a task.

Eliza refused to marry someone who would be very stable for her, because she knew there was more to life than that. She wanted real love and actively pursued that desire, proving her autonomy to all. However, this “real love” was tainted in a way she was unable to see, it was in fact seduction, not love. The seduction twists Eliza’s drive for independence and uses it against her. She attempts to decide her own fate, and society punishes her for it.
‘You’ve lost my respect’” (Alvarez 89). Minerva needs people to earn her respect; she is not going to hand it out to anyone. She has morals and her father has broken them, so he doesn’t deserve her respect – as a male he thinks he has the authority to do this, but she knows better. Minerva challenges the female portrayal by not blindly listening and following
Antigone knows that the citizens of Thebes are frightened to speak against Creon and his rule. “Not a man here would say the opposite, were his tongue not locked in fear. Unfortunately, tyranny can lay the law down any way it wants” (212). She is disobeying authority and telling Creon that other citizens would like to disagree with him, but will not because of the way he rules, with fear. Eventually, because she did not obey the
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
