This theme of unwillingness to change in mainly seen throughout “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” with the grandmother throughout the entire story. During their journey to Florida the grandmother keeps on begging her family to travel to Tennessee instead of Florida because she wants to explore her roots. Then towards the end while her entire family is beginning to get murdered she still would not change. The grandmother is so unwilling to change when going on this trip she causes a car accident because she had a horrible thought which was that, “the house she had remembered so vividly was not in Georgia but in Tennessee” (O’Connor 1148). The “Misfit” then sees her unwillingness to change as a person and has her watch her family die in front of her (in the woods to the side while she could hear the gunshots).
For example, it is normal behavior that a bereaved woman must show some remorse. This isn’t the case in her situation as she moves on as if nothing had happened. This aspect even shocks her son. Besides that, she continuously betrays her rebellious son in order to continue being relevant in her new relationship; it is only an evil person who is capable of such acts. Another instance that showed she is evil was when she did not object to the king’s suggestion of putting her son in a fencing match; she already knew that this challenge would be life threatening to Hamlet’s life yet she did not object or raise her fears (Shakespeare, 2017).
Some of the themes in Not without my Daughter are betrayal, domestic violence, bravery and unconditional love. Sayed betrays Betty by lying to her about their stay in Iran. He hits her and keeps her from calling her family, which are clear signs of domestic violence. Betty is brave and tries to escape in spite of the danger of upsetting her husband. She is able to escape on her own but she refuses to leave Mathob behind because of the unconditional love she feels towards her daughter.
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. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
Beatrice thought to herself, “Safe places, where confessing that I shot one of my best friends would be easy, where I would not be afraid of the way that Tobias will look at me when he finds out what I did.” This quote shows that people shouldn’t hold secrets in, but to let it out even how bad the secret is. The message of the book was to convey the
At the end of the story, we find out that Emily murdered Homer Barron and dressed him up and laid down with him whenever she wanted to. If someone took this story at face value, they would call her a sociopath because murder is outrageous. However, when taking a closer look at Emily’s background, the reader can see that the circumstances in her life lead her to such rash decisions. She believed she was doing the right thing by killing Homer, but she went about the situation the wrong way. She just didn 't want to lose another, probably last, loved one in her life.
Also she did not want to leave any possibility of revenge that the children could take on killing of their father’s wife. Medea’s actions are justified by her emotions as they are difficult thing to control at times. She is also raised in a different culture so she did not conform to the values of Corinth and did not easily accept that Jason married another woman. For the male audience, the evil deeds of Medea confirm their belief that women should be uneducated and kept at home. Medea was a divine character.
After hearing this, Macbeth decided to murder Duncan. Macbeth’s ego had a major impact on his behavior. “Which fate and metaphysical aid doth seem to have thee crowned withal.”(act1 sc5 32-33) If it was no’t for his own ego, he would have never been influenced by the witches and Lady Macbeth to kill Duncan. As soon as he murdered Duncan, his ego took over and he became insane with power and paranoia. This made Macbeth responsible for what he did to Banquo and Macduff’s family.
Rachel was reverend Brown’s daughter she too disagreed with Cates’ actions. When she tried to scare Cates into backing down, he resisted. Cates then continued to sacrificed himself in order to bring justice to the one-sided town of Hillsboro. On the contrary, Rachel was another brave character in the play Inherit The Wind. Rachel was the daughter of Reverend Brown, who brainwashed the people of the town to radically believe that God must come before anything else.
Enough.” Macbeth goes out of his way in an attempt to change fate and orders the murder of Macduff’s entire family. “He has kill'd me, mother: Run away, I pray you!” This drives Macduff to take revenge by killing Macbeth fulfilling the prophecy and ending Macbeth’s life. If Macbeth did not have so much ambition, he would not have visited the witches or even try to kill Macduff’s family. These two events demonstrate how Macbeth’s great ambition resulted in his downfall. Macbeth could’ve saved himself if he did not kill Banquo and Macduff’s family.
The women sensed this and therefore withheld information that would be vital in proving Mrs. Wright’s guilt in the murder of her husband. Had the men truly cared about what the women had found, perhaps the women would have shed light on their findings. The women are the rightful owners of the reader’s sympathy because they had often felt what Mrs. Wright had, the men had wrongfully acted in disrespect, and the women were written off as unhelpful before they ever had a chance to help. Because of the feelings of the women and the actions of the men, this case would grow cold and justice would not be
All this time, she thought she can convince the misfit to save her family, but instead of make it worse than already is when she say “you’re the misfit.” Lastly, Grandmother, she have a good heart and wonderful person, but she is easily to deceive by peoples. She did not see clearly and she had a poor judgment about who to trust. Even though she know it’s wrong, but being selfish to do it anyway and her belief without true understands of perception that she is blind by faith. With her grace, she could’ve saved her family if she keep it to herself quietly without say that she recognized the “Misfit.” With her grace, now she think of her family before she die and realized how selfishly and manipulated person she been. I believed the story will lead to a good ending.
When my grandmother called me, I’d say, ‘Yes ma’am.’ I wanted to say, ‘Why do you hit me? Am I really a bad child? Why do you treat me like I’m not part of your family?’” As I’m reading his story he has a very remarkable story in my opinion, and he’s a perfect reason we need to change this system. He wanted to tell the cops or his social worker but he was afraid to because he would be hit by his foster grandma. For some children this may not even work but it is definitely worth a shot to help these kids like Deshon.
