This quote is a great explanation of the judged stereotypes during this time period. Scout wanted to act like a girl, but her friends wanted her to act like the old Scout. This instance is where Scout had to make the decision that acting like a girl was not worth loosing her friends. Scout Finch made her own choices, she made them the way that she wanted them, n\ ot caring about what time it was, who she was with, and what people thought of her. She did things for her.
Morrison investigates the psychology of motherhood when Sethe and her children encounter freedom. No longer a "breeder," Sethe is free to love her children absolutely and, therefore, becomes capable of making controversial sacrifices to protect them. Morrison highlights the extreme parenting steps that Sethe takes to save her children from a life she once lived. Throughout her childhood and into her adulthood, Sethe felt abandoned by her mother when she escaped slavery without taking Sethe with her. Sethe did not want her daughter, Beloved, to feel this
Scout’s Aunt Alexandra want her to be more like a girl and start dressing like one." Women were treated as delicate, fragile creatures, and they were expected to act with that treatment. Scout was anything but delicate and fragile, and a good deal of the story focuses on her attempts to fit into a world that expects tomboys to wear frilly dresses and maintain a dainty disposition. Scout always like hanging with the boys and she really didn’t like wearing girl clothes. Then Most of this info will be coming from:
After she gave up everything she got, he asked for her first unborn child. Knowing now that the only way to win over evil is Rumpelstiltskin’s name. So she uses that to defeat the evil and keep her baby. In Cinderella (good) now, her family was always rude (the stepsisters who were evil) to her even though she followed all the rules and did all the work she was told to do. The only person good to her was her godmother who was a mentor (based on archetype figures) because she was wise, helpful, motherly figure and she grants her with gifts.
Her mother always nags on Connie saying that she should be like June who follows the rules and is a good role model. Her mom tells her, “Why don’t you keep your room clean like your sister?.. You don’t see you sister using that junk” (988). Connie does this so that way she can see what she likes and what she does not like. Connie’s actions also coincide with her being fifteen.
The character Mama decided that she had enough of her eldest daughter Dee(Wangero) getting whatever she wanted while her youngest daughter Maggie stood by in fear. Mama knew that Maggie feared her sister, because as Dee arrived at their home “Maggie attempts to make a dash for the house, in her shuffling way, but I stay her with my hand. (151)” Maggie is used to Dee getting everything while she stood back
Scout is definitely a character we see growth in. She goes from being a little girl who can’t control her anger to a young lady that wants a change in the world. In this quote, Scout shows that she tries to climb into Jem 's skin and understand what he is going through. In this part of the chapter was when the tree hole, that has the gifts got filled up and Jem felt bad about not giving anything in return. When scout saw that Jem was moody and sad, she didn’t want to bother him.
Shugart said RAG DOLL!’”(Chua 47-48). This quote reinforces the tense tone of the excerpt because the mother was screaming. The quotes “I always tried my best to reinforce Mr. Shugart’s points” and “‘Stop it Mommy. Just stop it.’”(Chua 47-48) show the tone of caring because Chua said she tried to reinforce the points of the teacher which shows that she tried to help her daughter the way the teacher did. The daughter also called Chua “Mommy”
Granny agrees and deception takes place. She was deceiving her own granddaughter Red about who she really is and what she likes to do. She explains that she is not like other grannies. She never liked the quilting bees or Bingo parlors, and that she would rather "live life to the extreme”. This action of granny is justified because everyone have rights to live on their own terms, what granny was
In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Mrs. Dubose’s suffering helps Jem and Scout learn about perseverance, virtuous characteristics and how much she really desires to do the right thing. Without realizing it, Mrs. Dubose shows Jem and Scout how to do what they know will be hard, combat fear with courage, and standing up for the right thing. She teaches them by her actions not by words without ever leaving her own bed. TRANSITIONAL SENTENCE Even though Mrs. Dubose knows how much pain coming off morphine will include, she continues to fight through the agony and suffering. During Jem’s reading session, Mrs. Dubose falls into a state with “cords of saliva” collecting on her lips while her head rocked slowly “from side to side” (123).
Throughout the book, Scout fights less and less because she realizes it does her no good. Scout was more of a tomboy than a girly girl. Aunt Alexandra didn’t like how she didn’t act like a proper lady, and would ask Scout to act more ladylike. As she grew up, she was able to understand things a lot better. She began acting more grown up in situations like Aunt Alexandra’s dinner party.
She herself doesn’t realize it until it’s too late. This character is very naïve and it is going to get the best of her. To start Oates guides the reader to empathize with Connie by showing us how her mother speaks to her in a way that is emotional abuse. For instance, in the book it states “her mother who noticed everything and knew everything and who hadn’t much reason any longer to look at her own face scolded Connie about it” “stop gawking yourself who are you?” You think you’re so pretty she would say” (Oates, 389). From this statement we can quickly review that Connie’s mom obviously has a jealous reaction to Connie’s appearance.
As we learn from Hood’s story, the good intentions of the grandmother to spare her granddaughter from repeating the same mistakes, that she and the girl’s mother made, were inhibited by the grandmother’s poor communications, which only drove the girl away and steered the girl in the direction of the same sorts of situations and experiences that would result in the same types of heartaches as two generations of women before her. Knowledge and insight into the nature of things must be shared openly and in clear terms, if it is to result in true wisdom and is the best way to know that even if poor choices are made, we know that the next generation was clearly informed, so the outcome they have is the outcome they created and not the result of a lack of information and that if you want something to be clearly seen, then you should endeavor to generate more light, than
