One day Marjane helped the maid write a love letter to their neighbor whom she loved, the nabor rejected her because he figured out she was a maid and did not accept her because of her class. In the text Marjane says“But is it her fault that she was born where she was born?? ?” “Dad are you for or against social classes?’’ Marjane was too young to realize that in her country they must stay in their own social classes when it comes to things like that. Her dad had to explain to her why the maid cannot do things like that. Marjane’s dad says “ Because in this country you must stay within your own social classes.’’Another theme of this story is Revolution.
They didn’t have a say in things, so much so that they have to be with someone whom their parents arranged for them to marry, as with Nemirovsky’s character Lucile who was married to Gaston Angellier, “She had never loved him; she had married him because her father wished it” (202). They belonged inside houses performing house chores all day and taking care of the men and their children, “Charlotte Pericand, who ruled the family’s daily life with an iron hand, whether it was managing the household, her children’s education or her husband’s career” (5). But because of the war and under the collaborationist Vichy government, Kaplan stated, “the domestic policy of France moved in a direction that reinforced and sharpened the most conservative attitudes towards women’s role (2). Women were involved in all of the major organized Resistance movements, as Kaplan
For example, the narrator in “The Word Love” lives a hideous life. She is not proud of her life in America because she is forced to do things that her mother warned her against. She lives with a man with whom they are not married, and she hates it that the practice goes against the values that her mother taught her. On the other hand, in the story “Silver Pavements and Golden Roofs” a girl from Calcutta finds transition of life different than expected. She lives with her aunt and uncle in the America.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are here today to discuss the actions of Mildred turning in her husband for his twenty plus amount of hidden books. In Fahrenheit 451, Mildred’s actions are not justified because Montag provided a safe life for her and marriage vows state to stand by your significant other through thick and thin. On the other hand, Mildred was raised in a society that did not educate her in what was right or wrong. She did not want to get in trouble, risking the loss of her “family” who she favored over her husband, Montag. Also Mildred’s actions were justified because, Montag was breaking the law, and even though he’s her husband, she did what she thought was right in hope to not lose everything they had.
Before this, the women’s jobs were to stay home, cook, clean and take care of the children. They weren’t allowed to work the same jobs as men or vote, and their husbands were the boss of them. It is said in The Declaration of Sentiments, Seneca Falls Conference, “The history of mankind is a history repeated injuries and usurpations on the part of man toward woman, having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over her…He has compelled her to submit to laws, in the formation of which she had no voice…He becomes, in marriage, for all intents and purposes, her master -- the law giving him power to deprive her of her liberty, and to administer punishment.” This proves that women had little to no rights and were not treated fairly, and were controlled by men. The women wanted to change this, and started a protest against
Based on the arguments and relationships observed in the film I would say that their parrenting style is insufficient. When parenting styles are insufficient “parents are not able to effectively manage the child’s behavior and often adapt a permissive parenting style” (Gehart pg. 145). An example of the permissive parenting style can be seen at a scene at the dinner table when the mother notes that her youngest son never goes to class. This is someting I would want to ask the family more about.
As she only had a “brute” of a father and a “weak” mother, it would have been hard for Veronica to look up to any role models. Despite her father’s abusive nature and the responsibility of raising her siblings on her shoulders, Veronica still managed to stay faithful to her family and even jeopardized her chances of making something of herself for them. As she has never seen anything aside from her family, all she would aspire to is having a family of her own as that is all she has ever known. This partly explains why, later, she refuses to leave the village with Okeke. This also contributes to her life being labelled as a “terrible waste” because she probably did not have any outlandish aspirations as a small child and, consequently, could not form “regular” aspirations as a young adult.
Right after her mother has passed away, Margaret does not have time to mourn, for she must already arrange the funeral and take care of her brother and father: “The father and brother depended upon her; while they were giving way to grief, she must be working, planning, considering.” (p. 302). Once again, this should be her father’s role, and yet, Margaret is carrying the burden of taking care of everything. This idea that Margaret takes care of everything instead of her father is even more striking when we put her in contrast with another young
Sappleton’s family who don’t know the exact event. Vera is the portrayal of Saki’s childhood when he wants to rebel against his aunt. He wants to take revenge to the adults by deceiving them. This story’s theme, deception, is related to Saki’s feeling when he was a little boy. Saki employ “The Open Window” as the title because when he was a child his aunt was very strong and didn’t allow him to play outside.
The theme of ‘How My Brother Leon Brought Home a Wife’ is Protecting One’s Reputation is Crucial. I said so because the main reason the Father felt so disappointed was Leon brought home a wife thinking of what will people say if they found out what happened to their breadwinner. That is why the Father keep his son from people for not to be judged. And because in rural places like where they live is barely to be given a chance to have the opportunity to study in the city. That is why they give more importance the essence of education.
