The Sympathy-Gaining Sister From an outsider’s point of view, this story might seem like just an average family altercation. However, when Why I Live at the P.O. is told from Sister’s point of view, the reader sympathizes with Sister and respects her decisions. Sister’s sole point in telling this story is to justify her actions and gain the reader’s sympathy. Telling the story from her point of view allows Sister to influence her audience by calling out the reader and belittling Stella-Rondo.
I must think about it" (27.4). Edna fully understands that society would brand her as a terrible woman, but she does not view herself as a bad person. There is an external and internal difference that Edna hopes to one day reconcile. Chopin, instead of creating tension within Edna, created tension within the society and Edna with her newfound independence does not mind how society classifies her. Decisively, it can be concluded that the tension between outward conformity and inward questioning builds the meaning of the novel by examining Edna’s role as a wife, mother, and as nontraditional woman in the traditional Victorian period.

Lady Macbeth is first introduced as an ambitious woman when she is reading Macbeth’s letter in act 1.5.
Not being able to fully grasp who’s perspective I’m reading this from, but then realized this story is about her. I would like to believe that she wrote this almost like a diary or journal about her struggling relationship. To really understand, people might have to sympathize with the author because many people go through different situations in life. For example this story was her in a relationship with friends involved trying to help. Of course at times individuals they would like to believe their judgment is better than people trying to help.
During court, Mary said she heard “the other girls screaming” and that Danforth “seemed to believe them” so she followed suit (Miller 107). Abigail and her friends saw the court believing their act, so they continued with their theatrics. This same display of emotion from Proctor also works at convincing Danforth Abigail’s words are not to be trusted, and her accusations against his wife have no
She often makes comments such as, “That’s not me. It’s some committee’s idea of me” (Westerfeld 44). This becomes the major problem of identity in the book Uglies. Shay wonders about what is really you and what other people want to make you. For Shay, being herself means to be tricky and not to listen to the laws.
This quote is made before Ophelia was sent out to break up with Hamlet in order for Polonius and Claudius to spy on him. Gertrude is telling Ophelia that she hopes the root of Hamlet’s madness is the love for her, she means to say this because it would be easier than him being mentally insane. Her concern shows that she may actually be that Gertrude may not be as bad of a mother than she is perceived to be in the first few acts. There is a theme of moral corruption/contamination because Gertrude has no problem with Claudius and Polonius spying and tricking Hamlet, even though she doesn't have a say in the plan. It shows that she disregarded her own son This quote is made when Polonius talks about how many people use the power of faith and religion
Antigone is put at a disposition at the beginning of the work as she is a woman trying to voice her opinion in a time where men were only heard. Some may attribute her lack of voicing to her arrogant attitude, possibly rightly so, developed from the sequence of events in the work. Antigone felt entitled to bury her brother; she felt entitled that her voice be heard. She went against Creon’s command and tried to bury her brother. Antigone scorns Creon at the beginning of the play during questioning by back-talking and arrogantly answering Creon.

Soon, however, there is a rupture, when Alma discovers a letter written by Elisabeth to her psychoanalyst, revealing Alma’s secrets and also saying that ‘it is fun to study her’. From this point onwards, the audience sees that unravelling of Alma, and she finds that she is completely in the power of Elisabeth. ‘It is fun to study her’ is a masterstroke in objectification and Alma finds herself slave to Elisabeth. They begin resembling the originary myth of the master-slave. Hegel’s master-slave is a reflection of social relations and the terms of the ‘unambitious nurse’ and the ‘great actress’ are bandied about, but this does not seem to be the emphasis of the movie.

Candy also says that he “seen her give Carlson the eye” and “give Slim the eye” this gives the impression that she really is promiscuous and flirtatious.

Steinbeck does this to show what society viewed women as and he exaggerates

Many humans do go back on what they said previously or can’t keep a promise. A lot of literature written during this time period reflects ideas of darkness in human
