Daisy Buchanan’s reality is very stressful and problematic, so she finds solace in coping methods that aren 't the most effective. “‘Oh, you want too much’ she cried to Gatsby ‘I love you now- isn 't that enough? I can 't help what 's past,’ she began to sob helplessly. ‘I did love him once- but I loved you too’” (132 Fitzgerald) She doesn’t want to deal with her loveless marriage and the fact that she still loves Gatsby too. She goes on to have an affair with him, but never actually confronts Gatsby or Tom about this.
Edna says she wants to do her own thing without being fettered by her children or the society that is saying that you can’t get divorced. Edna also states that her children are bringing her down and damning her soul; Edna thought about her being free and realized that it is just another fantasy and the one person who actually gave her pleasure was Robert and he had left her for the sake of herself. Edna had been getting frustrated with the idea of her not being satisfied and her not receiving the love that she wanted and the realization of her not getting love or independence she didn’t give love back. She did love her kids but she never really wanted to be in this grouping of a mom or a housewife essentially. Her overall point is that she wants to be free and actually get satisfaction from activities other than painting, she felt constricted with Leonce.
She wanted to create an atmosphere where we are suspecting and doubting the words of the mother. Whatever the mother says, the reader is to take the opposite of what is really happening into account. She exemplifies this through the use of repetition of the mother saying that the child walks backwards, and by the second time she repeats this phrase we are fully aware of the mother’s true intentions of abuse. Perhaps the poet intended to invoke emotions of anger and confusion from the reader as they have written the poem in a very raw, realistic way. The poet is attempting to extinguish the bystander effect amongst her readers by choosing a very solemn and tragic mood to place emphasis on the reality of child abuse that goes unreported due to people not questioning what they are hearing.
Anne Bradstreet was born in 1612 and grew up to become a prominent English poet. As she was growing up, the Puritan society expected her to become a good housewife, consequently a caretaker to her children. She wrote primarily for herself, and her children, for she didn’t want the attention from men and their scrutiny. Anne lived in a time where society’s standards of women included lack of skill, only being good housewives, and notably, only pedestrian. “For my mean pen are too superior things … My obscure lines shall not so dim their worth.” (111) Bradstreet articulates that her writing is not good enough for songs of wars, of captains, and of kings.
Many controversies was revolving around the word “romped” and individuals believe “romped” was meant as a negative connotation. Even though “romped” could mean engage in sexual activity, it could also mean to play roughly. In the context of the poem, “romped” appears to mean play roughly and it doesn’t show a negative connotation. “Romped” may have in fact only been playing around and that nothing abusive was happening. To further add on, the author used words like “countenance” and “unfrown” after the falling of pans to show us that it was because of the pans the mother frowned.
Despite of being right in my accusations of her sister’s ingenuine behavior, every time I demand that my wife tries to see the true side of the story, she keeps quiet and avoids confrontation. As follows, I become extremely irritated and annoyed by her withdrawal from the conflict. According to the book, the person using the avoidance conflict style wishes the problem or conflict would go away by itself and appears uninterested in managing the conflict or in meeting the needs of the other person involved in the disagreement. As a positive side of her conflict management style in this particular situation by withdrawing she does not allow me gunny-sacking, that only leads to increasing tension, escalating emotions, and reducing listening effectiveness, as mentioned in the textbook. However, by not resolving this issue the tension in relationship with my spouse builds
In the novel, The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, I dislike Daisy more than Tom. I dislike Daisy more than Tom because she backed out on leaving Tom and going to live with Gatsby. Gatsby was trying to control Daisy because Daisy was getting discouraged, she says “ ‘Please, Tom! I can 't stand this anymore.’ Her frightened eyes told that whatever intentions whatever courage she had had, were definitely gone.” After all the arguing, at the end she turns to Tom so the whole situation can be over. She fails Gatsby and doesn 't do the one thing she had to do to make Gatsby happy.
Relieved because I felt no connection with that kind of happiness; I didn’t deserve it and thus I shouldn’t want it.” (Page 71) Grealy had been belittled for so long on a daily basis that she believed she was nothing more than this ugly monster that doesn’t deserve love or friendship. She considered it a weakness. After reading a verse from a book called “The Prophet” she shuts it and states, “I wanted nothing to do with the world of love; I thought wanting love was a weakness to be overcome. And besides, I thought to myself, the world of
In the poem, “No Assistance,” Ntozake Shange writes about the struggle a woman goes through with recognizing that she is in a one sided relationship. Not only is this shown by the woman’s words, but also with the specific tones she uses. The title, “No Assistance” is the woman stating that she no longer needs her partner anymore because they weren't any help at all. She also says “this was an experiment, to see how selfish I could be” this is the woman rejecting the idea that she is being used. She is in denial that this is unrequited love and that she was in love with him in the first place.
I will not, I cannot! You loved me, John Proctor, and whatever sin it is, you love me yet!” (I.465-472). Seeing Abigail cry, it suggests that Abigail’s affair with John Proctor has influenced her behavior in jealousy and lust as she strives for nothing more than her love for John Proctor. By only being heartbroken, Abigail is not to be fully blamed for the hysteria within the town as her actions are only based on desperate attempts to win John Proctor over, and no intentional harm whatsoever. However, on the other hand, Abigail cannot be excused with outside forces making her the way she is due to the fact that she has clearly had a choice in most of her decisions and actions throughout the witchcraft crisis.
