“…so when I couldn’t stand it no longer, I lit out. I got into my old rags, and my sugar-hogshead again, and was free and satisfied….” (page 9).

But while Father pushes ideals of toxic masculinity onto his son, Mother also pushed similar ideals on their daughter Nanny. When speaking with her daughter about how she felt about her husband’s decision to build a barn instead of a home, she seems to push the thought that women are nothing without men. She tells Nanny, “One of these days you’ll find out, an’ then you’ll know that we know only what men-folks think we do.” (Freeman 651) They go on to speak of how Adoniram treats the two of them, they realize that they are lucky that he does not force them to work and by most standards, they live good lives.

Mothers have pushed their children to achieve greatness since the beginning of time. Such an example can be seen in a mother’s request to Samuel Johnson for an archbishop’s patronage for her son and the response of Samuel Johnson. In this letter, Samuel Johnson uses various rhetorical strategies to explain and justify to the mother that there is no reason for him to endorse her son and talk to the archbishop about patronage. In the beginning, Johnson explains the mistake that the mother made. He describes expectation that is “dictated not by reason, but by desire” is “dangerous to indulge.” She expected Johnson to comply and that her son would receive patronage.
It all began because King Lear was already at an old age so he decided to divide his kingdom to his three daughters. There was a requirement for the women to get their father’s land and it was to express how much they loved their father and who ever he thought loved him more would get the most land. The two older daughters described their love to the king with beautiful words which earned them a great amount of land; however when it was Cordelia’s turn to speak she did not say anything. She simply stated she loved her father the way a daughter is supposed to but one day she would marry and love another man besides her father. King Lear was infuriated with Cordelia; he banned her from the kingdom, did not give her any land, and completely disowned her.
