Emily insists that her mother not wake her the next morning for school, even though she has midterms, since the atomic bomb will destroy everyone soon anyway, making midterms irrelevant. Once Emily leaves, the narrator admits her concern that Emily actually has such a pessimistic outlook. To close, the narrator insists that Emily will be okay, and that she will not come into school to talk further. She wants the school figure to "let her be" (12). The narrator claims she can never "total it all," all of Emily's pain from childhood, and she mourns that Emily has had to keep too much inside of herself.
In spite of the fact that she tries on numerous roles none of these appear to fulfill her; she attempted these identities like trying on outfits, then disposed of them. Her failure to discover any part that really fulfills her presumably adds to her general feeling of vulnerability and proceeded with withdrawal from her family and, undoubtedly, whatever is left of the world. Since she can't locate a specific part that suits her, she attempts not to have any role at all; the coldness and disengagement of the pale white room makes it appear that she is attempting to rid herself of her previous life. From reading the story we can tell that the young wife has a creative side she tried writing poetry among other things, but being secluded cause her to suppress her creative energy. In some culture a woman’s role is to be a house-wife and mother.
The author makes no note of Maddie understanding Samantha’s situation, suggesting that disabilities are strange or outlandish. Samantha also thinks that if she tells Stuart, then he would leave her and she’d be “down to no one”. This insinuates that Samantha’s disease would create an unpleasant personality for Samantha, which furthers how disabilities are represented as an exclusion from society. Finally, Samantha had just blanked out (a symptom of NPC), and lost her National Debate Competition:“And then you realize everyone else is inside, being normal, and even your family can’t stand you and you are completely and utterly alone” (98). Samantha blames herself, or more specifically her disease, for
The woman in “The Yellow Wallpaper” becomes ill after she has her first child, a daughter named Katharine. In the text it says, “…and am absolutely forbidden to “work” until I am well again.” (Gilman 1670). She would probably be diagnosed with postpartum depression in today’s world. She is prescribed to not do any work until she feels better. In actuality, this only causes the woman to act more strangely.
Melinda gets depressed and starts expressing her pain through stuff like biting her lips and her nails, and not talking. At the end of the story she finally found her voice and was able to stand up for herself. In the beginning, Melinda didn't talk to anyone, barely even to her parents. She says, “I have tried so hard to forget every second of that stupid party and here I am in the middle of a hostile crowd that hates me for what I had to do. I can't tell them what really happened” (Anderson, 28).
The people in the society have no purpose and spend their days doing mindless actions that have no effect on anything substantial. Clarisse explains to Montag how no one does anything in school, and that their schedule consists of “an hour of TV class, an hour of basketball or baseball or running, another hour of transcription history or painting pictures, and more sports” (27). No one learns anything in school because no one has a need for knowledge in daily life. In school, they do what their parents spend all day doing: watching TV and mindlessly going about their days. Mildred spends all day in her ‘parlor’, and not even TV has any meaning to it.
Melody is a young girl. She can 't walk, talk or even go to the bathroom by herself. Melody has a disease called cerebral palsy. Everyone thinks that because she is in a wheelchair that she is not smart, but don 't underestimate Melody. Melody is a genious.
She cannot tell that what she is doing could be seen as bragging which hurts the class indirectly. She is completely wrapped up in her own past experiences with the sun and is somewhat grieving over her loss of it. This shows Margot’s pain. Also, Margot does not look at the other children or talk to them during recess. She actually refuses to speak to another kid when he talks to her; she will not play any of their games.
Mrs. Proctor learned of the affair and fired her immediately. Now, the whole community knows to not hire her because she has a “dirty” name, meaning she is known for doing wrong. Abigail moved into Reverend Parris’ house and has not obtained a job in seven months. Parris wishes to know why she has not worked in more than half a year and asks if it is because of her reputation. Parris is not aware of the affair and does not understand why Abigail does not have a job.
I believe that the glasses represent Violet’s grief over her sister. Violet clearly has yet to get over her sister’s death because she still is not writing--a passion she and her sister shared--and still will not go in cars. Over the course of the book, Finch helps Violet get over her sister and the reader sees Violet get in a car again (even drive), start a new blog without her sister, and take off her sister’s
Likewise in ‘Million Dollar Baby’ the scene at the very beginning Maggie asks Frankie to train her and he declares that he does not train girls and that "Tough ain 't enough." and walks away. Maggie is left behind in a scene that is very dull, not lit with very much light. That scene is metaphorical for her being left in obscurity without any direction. I noticed the shadows under her eyes.
Joel, the love of Hannah’s life found interest in another girl at school. Because they are not talking anymore, Hannah decides to stop coming to school for a few weeks. Knowing that he was the only person she cared for, he left her questionable and weak. The break up between them to brought Hannah to a very dark place. At this very moment Hannah felt that everyone was against her.
I heard the Judge blame Jamie, not the mother, for not performing visitation. The Judge did say that Jamie’s needs would change, while completely ignoring the actions of the mother that have led to the alienation. The mother sat there smugly as the Judge let her own daughter be blamed. The actions of the Judge that day combined with her older daughter’s justified desire not to be anywhere near her mother has emboldened the mother leading to her complete lack of meaningful cooperation with the Parenting Plan. 8.
