“So, I take phosphates or phosphites whichever it is, and tonics, and journeys, and air, and exercise, and am absolutely forbidden to "work" until I am well again. Personally, I disagree with their ideas. Personally, I believe that congenial work, with excitement and change, would do me good. But what is one to do? (l.42) The husband decides everything for the protagonist and thinking it’s for her own good, but eventually his methods proves to worsen her illness, she can’t even write.
It reveals you” (John Green 286). Peter explained that the death of his daughter exposed his worst self. This relates to the theme: death is a part of life, so we need to live our best lives each day because Peter’s daughter’s death was a part of his life, but it exposed and ruined him. In order for Hazel to live her best life she cannot give up because Gus is dead. Death and hardship is a part of being alive, so Hazel needs to be resilient through to keep grief from revealing her worst self.
Her servant is surprised with what she was hearing. So, the servant called in a doctor to see if she could be healed, but she could not be healed. The doctor had said “quote from the book”. Lady Macbeth dies from all the horror she has been through since the death of king Duncan. All those vicious thoughts and going with the plan to kill the king made her
I also learned that I must never love someone whom I love more that loves me. I must choose someone who love me more because that small feeling can be expounded and it is up to my mindset if I will be happy or not. I also learned that I must never trust someone who lies. Because if he lies to me with simple things, how much more on bigger things that involve our future family. To love someone is my choice, and it is up to me on who I choose to love.
In the story it says, “ “I went home very sad and cried into my pillow that night so grandmother wouldn’t hear me. It seemed like a cruel coincidence that I had overheard that conversation” (108). This quote is noteworthy because the point of view, first person, shows how Martha feels about getting the jacket. If this was written in third person, the reader might not understand how much the jacket truly means to her. This piece from the text shows that Martha was very upset about hearing she might not receive the jacket.
Second of all, when her husband Patrick told Mary that he will leave her,even though she is a good wife it sounded really “cold” and was careless. In the story he says “I’ve got something to tell you,” and also says “Go on, sit down” this to me sounds a bit harsh considering he didn’t say “please” or “may”. All of these variables : her shock at the news, the pregnancy she is going through and rough news, made her think of a life in ruin, which consequently lead her to a sudden frenzy. The third reason why Mary is a sane individual is because she was smart enough to plan a positive order of events to cover up her murder. For example, in the story it states “It was extraordinary, now, how clear her mind became all of a sudden,” and also “She began thinking very fast.” This explains how she was not insane and the murder was a temporary weakening in her judgement.
After the dramatic downturn towards the end of Sylvia Plath’s life, a lot of literature critics seemed to finally grasp the veiled meanings in Plath’s poetry. Her work displays signs of overwhelming emotion; one can’t help but assume that the vivid language resembles true personal references. There were many repeated themes throughout the collection that suggested how her mental stability exposed to this imagination of her poetry, led to her suicide. It came to terms just how fragile Plath was and the depression that overcame her was the push that led to the devastating suicide during the harsh winter of 1963. The depression she faced earlier in time was further enhanced after the affair that her husband, Ted Hughes had with Assia Wevill, shattering
These feelings drastically impact her works and demonstrate her struggle with mental illness. In addition to feelings of worthlessness resulting from her depression, Plath experienced numerous tragic events which appear heavily in her works. In response to these dreadful experiences, Plath begins to feel worthless and doubt herself as a writer and person. Plath’s childhood traumas and childhood relationships deeply impact her work as well as her life. In an essay, her Ex Husband states that her attempted suicide “had grown from the decisive event in her childhood, which was the death of her father when she was eight.”(Hughes, “On Sylvia Plath”) her poetry “grew out of terrible and shattering and inally unbearable expierences”(Souces 4) Hughes attributes Plath’s depression to her childhood relationships, specifically the death of her father.
Myrtle never pointed out that she was unhappy or bothered but I conjecture, it is partially my fault for not asking. They told me grief is the price you pay for love, and here I am now dealing with her death. I guess everybody has passed though this phase sometime during their life but why me? Myrtle cheated on me, she took it too far. Though I kind of doubted it, I felt like she was not the Myrtle I first met.
To her, this was a major confusion and as the story uncovers, it was most likely the primary explanation behind her suffering in marriage. She most certainly disliked the way her husband treated her. Marriage resembled subjugation to her and when she gets the news that her husband was dead, she is upbeat that she is finally free. Mrs. Mallard can be said to speak to many marriages in society where many individuals are not enjoying the marriage but rather for differed reasons, they would prefer not to escape the marriage. The whole story is established on how Mrs. Mallard
They were selfish and expected me to pick from one of them. I couldn’t support myself on my own, but I refused to give up on Odysseus. Telemachus, my son, was the only thing keeping me from submitting myself to marriage. Sadly, I feared for his life seeing as the suitors were realizing that I was using him as an anchor for my survival. We got by day by day though by appeasing to their wants for the time being.
As the day passed my fevers started, they were bad. The best thing that had happened was that they finally brought my Scarlett in the room with me to let her stay with me. My sickness started when my incision opened back up, they took me to the ER. Tests were getting done, they were taking me all over the place all I could do was cry. My family was going through a tough time, all they wanted were answers.
I tried cheering my mother up by telling her that at least America was a leading power now but that didn’t work. She was upset throughout the whole day. All my mother thought about was how bad my brothers nightmares were each night. The next day we went to the doctor to see if there was a cure for his horrid dreams but the doctor told us was that we couldn’t
Kate Chopin’s The Story of an Hour is a story about Mrs. Mallard who was not happy woman with the standards of the time. The story of an Hour was written in the early 1990s, at that time period man treated ladies as a bit of property. In this story Mrs. Mallard heard a news that her husband has been killed in an accident. Mrs. Mallard cries so badly before she go to her room. In the room she was crying and she could not decide whether it is a good news for her or bad.
Next, another example would be that her husband forbids her to work and keeps her inside until she gets better which is really not good for anyone 's health not go outside and get fresh air. As the short story of “The Yellow Wallpaper” states “So I take phosphates or phosphites- whichever it is, and tonics, and journeys, and air, and exercise, and am absolutely forbidden to ‘work’ until I am well again. Personally, I disagree with their ideas. Personally, I believe that congenial work, with excitement and change, would do me good” (770 Gilman). This states another good example of cruelty to women because back then women were not allowed to work they were expected to stay home and clean all day and raise there kids.
