This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation.

b- It wasn’t a dream, it’s memory: Alice understands that “Underland “is a real place, it’s not fantasy as she has thought.

It’s far better to be feared than loved: The Red Queen wants to remain as a powerful and cruel woman, she isn’t interested in love. She sees the violence and fight as a way of resolving problems.
The author’s word choice is attempting to portray a scene with people who are hysterical. The first time people are shown as being hysterical is when “...there were all kinds of -there were infants and children and women, and the women were crying”(4 Shapiro).

After walking away from Miss Moore, Sylvia thinks about the day and claims “ain’t nobody gonna beat me at nuthin” (Bambara 6). Throughout the story, Sylvia has pessimistic thoughts that may affect her future. By not admitting she learned something, it can be inferred that her pride will not allow her to acknowledge the lesson. Due to this, Sylvia may suffer a fall in her life, such as the quotation, “pride comes before Destruction” suggests.
Edna shows self criticism because she recognizes her actions will affect her children in this “society where reputation is everything” (Hytönen 86).
