Mildred has become self-centered, robotic, and unfeeling due to the ways of society. The society of the world in the book Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, has made Mildred, wife of Montag, into someone that doesn’t care, think, or feel. This is what happens when
It’s a time for new beginnings filled with new friendships and connections. Most parents immediately feel happy and attached to their child, but not Romeo and Juliet’s parents. Juliet never has a heart to heart talk with her parents. They only talk when necessary. On the other hand the Nurse is always the one having those cherishing talks with Juliet.
Aunt Alexandra can be identified as a narrow-minded and obstinate person who is blinded by her own beliefs to see the wrong and bias in her mentality, along with many others today. Unlike Atticus, Aunt Alexandra fails to acknowledge Calpurnia’s contributions to the family simply because she doesn’t honor the value of people with darker skin. It proves that if people within a family are unable to look at racism and its damage from the same perspective, it is not possible for everyone in this world to become a righteous human being. Similarly, Francis believes that his “...Uncle
Hester is the exception to the rule, and perhaps the only character in the novel who lives by reality, rather than appearance. Throughout the novel, Hester encounters a barrage of disrespect and cruelty. Her own people shun her because she falls in love and bears her child a lover. From the first page of the novel, Hester is exiled and shunned, and is thrown into reality. Thus, unlike the characters around her, such as the sneaky minister or the greedy lovers, Hester is the one character who lives by reality instead of appearance.

Although I do not believe that this is true and I will be discussing my reasons throughout this essay. My perspective of Lady Capulet is that she isn’t a good mom at all and that she is a very obedient person. Lady Capulet is not a good mom at all for many reasons. One reason is because, she never knows where her daughter is and she lets the nurse take care of Juliet 24/7 even when she could be the one to take care of her. In the play, Lady Capulet asks the Nurse, “Nurse, where’s my daughter?
This is a FTA towards H's positive face as she is showing no care about his feelings so she does not care about his face wants, which shows the miserable husband-wife relationship between them as she does not love him but this marriage had the form of a deal as she married him not out of love but because she had to marry, this highlights the mentality of the society at that time when women are treated as nothing but wives and mothers and it is a must to be
As we move through the passage, we see Adriana shift her emotions of depression away from her husband and towards her naïve sister. Adriana becomes so enraged with her sister’s comments, that she refers to Luciana’s mentality as “servant like” (2.1.26). Since servants were treated as the lowest members of society, it is clear that Adriana feels as though Luciana is making a fool out of herself. Shakespeare portrays Luciana in a manner that would suggest that she is an expert on marriage, which is contradictory in itself as Luciana is not yet married. Her tone, while initially understanding and compassionate, quickly turns into one of arrogance and righteousness.
Mildred’s constant addiction to gadgets represents her denial towards her problems and the little desire she has towards a better life. Her ignorance is another of her great weaknesses since she lives in a world where her feelings don’t matter and is easily influenced by tv and propaganda which explains her obsess towards hair dye and a soap opera family, even when Guy tries to talk to her all she seems able to talk about is her “family”, he tries to talk to her into reading some of the books he has found but she’s just worried that Captain Beatty might show up and “burn the house and the ‘family’” and asks him “why should I read?” “what for?” (34, Bradbury). Mildred doesn’t understand what she’s feeling and therefore prefers little amounts of superficial happiness that only give her joy for a little while, instead of reading and exterminating her ignorance because she’s too afraid to understand what is really happening inside of
Lucy’s rejection of society’s emphasis on appearance frees her from the insecurities that are brought upon by a self-image based on looks. Instead, she finds her self-worth in her intelligence and autonomy. At this point, Lucy has lived in America for over a year, and still she says “Everything I could see made me feel I would never be part of it, never penetrate to the inside, never be taken in” (Kincaid, 154). Although she has found this new independence in America that she would not have found as a woman at home, she is still pained by her disconnection with the society around her. From leaving her family to leaving Mariah, her path to becoming an independent woman has forced herself to sacrifice a sense of security that comes with belonging.
