A Line Between Love and Hate In Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, the character Walter Lee Younger, displays the demeanor of a character in Zora Neale Hurston’s novel Their Eyes Were Watching God. In Hurston’s book, Janie’s grandmother, Nanny, was a woman with a very stubborn mindset on life, very similar to Walter Lee who presumably had life all figured out. They were portrayed as the antagonist in the novels but were just characters that meant well and had good intentions. Walter Lee Younger and Nanny are portrayed as selfish and emotionless characters by few critics but digging deeper into their situations and their decision making, they just wanted better for their loved ones and they both wanted one thing, a better life, whether it benefited themselves or the special people in their lives. To help better understand Walter Lee and Nanny, their actions verses intentions, along with the meaning behind what they did, and the reasoning behind it all will be broken down and examined throughout the paper.
She shows the true responsibility of an older sibling. She is also very sensitive because she get angry and sad really quickly. When Jason’s mother yelled at her, she said she had to use all of her strength to not cry. If a strong person was in her position I believe this person would not even be close to crying. All in all, I think that Catherine was a great character made by Cynthia Lord.
At the beginning of the movie, it seemed as though Regina and Gretchen had a dominating conflict style because they were both aggressive in their own way and were uncooperative (Hocker & Wilmot, 2014, p. 156). They did all that they could to keep their power and cared less about other people’s feelings. At the beginning, Cady seemed to have an obliging conflict style, she accommodated to what others wanted so that she could fit in (Hocker & Wilmot, 2014, p. 163). She agreed to help Janis because she wanted friends and she started acting like the Plastics when she got close to them because she wanted to fit in with them as well. At the beginning of the movie Janis had an avoidance conflict style.
“I...I cannot tell how, but I did. I...I heard the other girls screaming, and you, your Honor, you seemed to believe them and I…It were only a sport in the beginning, sir, but then the whole world cried spirits, spirits, and I...I promise you, Mister Danforth, I only thought I saw them but I did not.” (67) In this quote it proves that Mary was just trying to then go along with what Abigail said and just save herself. Abigail often times gets what she wants even though it usually is wrong. In today’s world people are often self-centered and look out for themselves only. We all need to start realizing the world doesn’t only revolve around us and we need to speak truth about everything and not just lie to save ourselves and hurt
The author establishes this issue well in the cases of Sophie Wender, Rosalind Morton, and Aunt Harriet. These individuals are undoubtedly the most developed emotionally, as well as the most assertive and genuine representations of present day women, shown throughout the novel.. Nevertheless their way of acting is considered “sinful” because they stray from the gendered norms, this is exceedingly present in Aunt Harriet. She is desperate to keep her child even though the baby is considered a deviation. Her attempts at tricking the inspector falls short as her own sister and her husband deny her pursuit and disdain her.
Therefore, I decided to read The Confidence Code by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman. I wished I could regain the confidence I had before moving to the U.S. The book’s key takeaway is that lack of confidence leads to inaction, and actions are necessary to build confidence. I agree that most women, including me, think a lot about consequences and often have self-doubt. This can ultimately inhibit women from seeking opportunities and affect their decision-making ability.
Regardless of the type of power, Medea makes clear her inability to control her actions, “I’d act more sanely, if I only could” (31). Through saying this, Medea exhibits her desire to act rationally, to consider her family and her country. She is prevented from logic by her passion; for despite her acknowledgment of the appropriate actions she chooses to “pursue the worse” (35). However, her claiming to pursue the worse, depicts Medea in a different light. This whole time, Ovid portrays her as too overtaken by passion to be logical, and yet she is able to make a comparison of logic versus desire.
I love to advocate for others, who are unable to do this for themselves. I advocated for son, who had dyslexia throughout his life, and I never took no for an answer. Some of my characteristics that could impede my effectiveness as a counselor would be the same qualities that makes me an excellent advocate. I tend to be seen as pushy and arrogant sometimes; nevertheless, you have to fight in a civilized manner to get ahead. My resilient characteristics could be seen differently since I am a woman, and women are judged differently than men.
She used all of her courage to advocate for Fania, who was not daring enough to do so herself. This proves that Sara was ruthlessly protective of her family because she was willing to break rules to defend her sister. Similar to Sara, I feel the need to protect my family, especially my sister. Like Fania, my sister does not always advocate for herself because she has fear. I can not help but speak up for my sister when she is being disrespected, just like Sara.
Other scholars () also Wrote that “[Esther is] pliant to the commands of Mordecai, …her weakness, her timidity, her modesty she can conquer through loyalty to the Cause, which is hers since it is her master’s”. Through this many see Esther as a woman without a mind, she viewed as a woman who needs to be controlled by man. furthermore, Esther role has also been degraded early in the book through the interpretation of the word “to be queen”. In which Hebrew this word can mean “to reign”. Scholar Carey Moore describes this choice as intentional, intended to reflect Esther’s lack of
