Her sexual fantasies deemed as “madness” by society is what kept her sane to keep up with society’s expectations. She could keep up with the society’s façade as long as she had her unfulfilled fantasies to keep her going. From her perspective, society’s expectations were “madness”. Erika’s own “madness” was developed through a misguided desire for intimacy and a form of escape from society. Ultimately, Walter who represented society destroyed that escape and left her unable to carry on with her only role as a piano teacher, as she stabbed herself and left the building at the end of the

In Ovid’s Metamorphoses many of the women are portrayed in a lesser light in comparison to the males. In this example, Scylla has just pulled out her father’s magical purple hair that keeps their country safe from intruders. Her infatuation with King Minos has led her to betray her family and her people which makes her seem irrational. The imagery created from these lines paints a picture of a weak, illogical woman who will do anything for a male to return her love. Scylla seems almost insane for going against her father who has been protecting their people for King Minos that she has never met.
Another example is the letter addressed to the Crane family, “Didn’t you ever see an idiot child before? Some people just shouldn’t have children should they”? (4) This shows that she is envious of the family because they provide each other with company and they love each other, “ most infatuated young parents she had ever known”. Whereas Miss Strangeworth lives all alone. In short, these letters have proved that since she is jealous of her victims she tries to disrupt their way of living so she can feel superior.
Although, to men it was inconceivable (8) that women were allowed to do that, to have that much freedom. In The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald portrayed these affairs within three characters. Tom and Daisy Buchanan were the two main characters, cheating on each other. Tom was cheating on Daisy with many, many women, but the one mentioned in the book was Myrtle. During these times, Tom saw nothing wrong with his cheating.
To me the hole moral of the story is that during the trials people used this as an opportunity to get what they want like Abigail was John Proctor,Putnam was land,Judge Danforth just liked to see people hang Indignant. because he didn 't like or care about anything. Judge Danforth also makes it clear that anyone other than the girls is Unintelligible because the girls were the Plaintiff was he played
Many characters lie, which include John Proctor, Abigail Williams, Reverend Parris, and many others. All these characters have what they feel, is a logical reason for lying, but the question why do people lie to others and themselves, is something to ponder while reading the play. People lie to themselves to make them feel better about their own lives and people lie to others to cover up something they may be ashamed of. One reason people lie to themselves is to make them feel better about their own life and what they 're going through. Abigail is reprimanding the girls for saying things about witchcraft she doesn 't approve of.
In this book, Gerald gets abused by his drunk father. He wants to get rid of him, but Monique, the mother is very loyal to Jordan and defends him. This makes Gerald’s life miserable, and the only thing that brings a smile to his face is his step-sister, Angel, whom he possesses and cares for. Therefore, referring to some parts, and experience as a person, I can state that loyalty doesn’t always go both ways. Many people do not care if loyalty doesn’t return to them.
After the loss of her younger brother and separation from her mother, it is easy to see that she found it very difficult. She was more than lucky to receive the love and care that Hans and Rosa Hubermann provided for her, even if it was accompanied with a strict mentality and plenty of yelling. Hans was a nurturing presence in Liesel's life, teaching her to read and comforting her through nightmares. On the other hand Rosa provided a fair share of mean spirited nicknames, such as, “Saukerl” and, “Arschloch.” Rosa’s projection of love differs immensely from Hans but she certainly cares for liesel just as much, as shown in this quote, “...But she did love Liesel Meminger. Her way of showing it just happened to be strange.
Pilate grew up without much parental support, but the fact that this lack of meaningful relationships did not cause her “real misery” emphasizes just how much she cares about her daughters.The immeasurable love Pilate has for her daughter greatly contrasts the nearly invisible feelings Milkman has for his own close family, yet it would lead one to believe that she would at least gain something over Milkman for her selflessness. Indeed, this selflessness is brought up once again at the climax of the book as Pilate lays dying in Milkman’s arms, telling him to, “watch Reba for [her]”, then adding on, “I wish I’d a knowed more people. I would of loved ‘em all,” as if it was an afterthought (Morrison 336). Even as she lay dying, Pilate’s thoughts are elsewhere, concerning the welfare of her only remaining daughter, instead of acknowledging her own physical state. A majority of society would agree that these numerous acts of selflessness would justify a reward or salvation; yet in this case, Pilate simply
As Taylor matures and is exposed to horrible things that fathers can say and do to children, she feels quite lucky to have grown up without a father. The resiliency of Taylor 's mother and her commitment to Taylor, as well as her indifferent attitude toward men, represent Kingsolver 's feminist
