Although, Mami was pleased with the idea of coming at first and hearing about the laundry room. There were many more negatives experiences than positives for instance; Mami was unable to duplicate the words when she would ask the kids how to say it, “Her lips seemed to tug apart even the simplest vowels. That sounds horrible, I said” (Diaz 124). Additionally, her husband also did not contribute much to help her as well telling her “You don’t have to learn, he said. Besides, the average women can’t learn English.
Krebs thought girls were “not worth the trouble.” (85) Although he may not have had the motivation to pick up the girls, he “liked looking at them.” (85) This is in no way the girls’ fault, however it shows how the war affected Krebs’ drive to do tasks that involve socialization. Perhaps if the townspeople were more open to listen to Krebs’ story then he would be more comfortable with girls. His mother is an example of how he interacts with women. He is shown to be very uncomfortable, and ends up with his mother’s feelings hurt. This shows how because nobody talked to him, he couldn’t talk to anyone comfortably.
At first Montag finds Clarisse a bit annoying. He tells her “you think too many things.” But despite all of their difference the two are attracted to each other. She encourages Montag to think of things that he has never thought of before and he begins to question his life. "How like a mirror, too, her face. Impossible; for how many people did you know who refracted your own light to you?"
(AGG) It’s funny how one little thing can change an entire person’s perspective on something. (BS-1) The main character in this story, Montag, was like everyone else in society, mesmerized by the government. (BS-2) But, along his journey, people that met him influenced him to turn away from society, which lead him to questioning everything. (BS-3) He later realized that no one actually listens to each other because they are surrounded by technology, and this causes him to act out against his society. (TS) The lack of being heard can cause someone to reject their society.
What she doesn't understand, in any case, is that Tom and his companions will never acknowledge her into their circle. (Notice how Tom has an example of picking lower-class ladies to lay down with. For him, their frailty makes his particular position considerably more prevalent. Strangy, being with ladies who seek to his class improves him feel about himself and enables him to sustain the dream that he is a decent and imperative man.) Myrtle is close to a toy to Tom and to those he speaks to.
In the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, the main character, Montag, is not responsible for the carelessness he displays in his actions and words. After Montag finally informs Mildred of the books he has been stealing/reading, he casually states “‘we’re in this together’” to the shocked, petrified woman (63). Unfortunately, he puts pressure on Mildred to keep and hide his dirty, little secret which puts this innocent person in danger and goes against her beliefs. When he takes the book from the attic, he is not thinking about the way it would negatively affect anybody else, his mind only focuses on trying to figure out the government's classified information. While Montag is laughing at Clarisse’s comment on how firemen were once used to
This mannerism is also demonstrated after Edgar finds his wife’s lover’s letters in their closet. He unintentionally came across them, so he quietly put them back in their original spot. But, instead of retaliating against her in public and embarrassing her, he decided to buy prostitutes whenever he went out of town. This vengeful mindset expresses how their lack of communication has led him to be cruel towards her and patronize other
Indeed, she feels comfortable seeing him relax at home. In Hey You Down There!, Dora feels it inevitable that Calvin tends to get violent to anything. For example, she says nothing to Calvin even when he goes out of the door “kicking viciously at the tawny cat… (1)”. Secondly, they worry themselves about their husbands’ moods too much. Both of them try hard to guess how their husbands feel.
Faulkner shows many times in the story how much he thinks women don’t bring much importance to society. He describes how the women are always gossiping and curious, like how they only go to Miss Emily’s funeral because they wanted to see the inside of her house, but the men go to pay respects. The author also focuses on Miss Emily’s appearance very often making it seem like her appearance is one of the only things that makes her
They eventually all gathered up, full of fear, in the basement of Fiedlers. Luckily, no harm had been done to their precious home, and Max was alive. I was relieved when I heard this news. Liesel had gone through so much, losing one of the people in her life that meant a lot to her, and maybe if she had too lost Max, she would be defeated because she would think that everyone she ever truly loved would disappear on her. Unfortunately, there was a second raid, in which Liesel, in an attempt to keep everyone quiet, began to read.
In Fahrenheit 451, information is restricted, and people are given so many useless “‘facts’ they feel stuffed, but absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information”(pg 58). So they’ll be ‘happy’, but it is a fake happiness. Because of this people think they are happy, but commit suicide because they are not. There are also a small few who still read books, but they must keep it a secret, or the books
They are creative, messy, keep everything, and really care about the process that leads to results. She goes on to say, “For all these noble reasons and more, sloppy people never get neat. They aim too high and wide” (215). Britt is herself a
You wasn’t no good. You ain’t no good now, you lousy tart” (95). In other words, Curley 's wife does not even have to be alive to cause trouble, and her death alone exhibits enough power to create distress. In addition, Candy is implying that Curley’s wife has had the ability to cause trouble all along. For example, George saw that the first time Lennie was introduced to Curley’s wife he immediately fell under her spell, which caused George to continue to warn Lennie about her since her knew what she was capable of.
