Nevertheless, even Tea Cake, perceived to be the “kindest” of Janie’s husbands, eventually feels internal pressure to assert his dominance over her, and is led to beat her due to his own insecurity: “Before the week was over he had whipped Janie. Not because her behavior justified his jealousy, but it relieved that awful fear inside him. Being able to whip her assured him in possession. No brutal beating at all. He just slapped her around a bit to show he was boss” (146).
Henry later explains to Richard that they used to perform the ritual with Bunny, but decided to leave him out because he lacks the discipline and devotion, often telling jokes at serious moments during the bacchanal. I couldn’t bear the thought that, after everything we’d done, he’d ruin it at the last minute. And I knew he would. At the crucial moment he’d start to tell some asinine joke and ruin everything. Page 185-186 Bunny’s capabilities as a student are another
When the mob threatened Atticus, Scout leaped blindly out of the bushes and confronted the mob. She spotted Mr. Cunningham and talked about Walter, his son, and reminded everyone present that they were human. Atticus was shocked as well with “[his] mouth half open, an attitude he had once described as uncouth.” And with that, Mr. Cunningham said, “‘I’ll tell him you said hey, little lady’ he said. Then he straightened up and waved a big paw. ‘Let’s clear out,’ he called, ‘let’s get going boys.’”(206).
Lennie’s attachment disorder causes him to stroke her hair and becomes overpowered by it. Curley’s wife resists this and becomes scared, she screams for help. A panicked Lennie grabs her and stops her from screaming, unknowingly suffocating her. Lennie runs away, fearing the worst, leaving her dead body. With this, the entire plantation was after Lennie.
She is apparently quiet after her boyfriend has told her he do not want children. She is actually shattered and she murders her children. It seems a little exaggerated, but it is a consequence of all the situations she has repressed during her life. As Cixous explains ‘’every woman has known the torment of getting up to speak: a double distress.’’(Cixous, p. 351) It is necessary that women must speak up their minds, the female’s character in Love, forever is a victim of a patriarchal society that defines women’s expected
Afterwards she heard that one man on the jury, one of the Cunninghams wanted to acquit Mister Robinson. Upon hearing this she was relieved and wanted to invite his son for dinner, but my sister forbade that. On the other hand Jem was furious and cried. He cried because of the injustice of the verdict he always had thought that people from Maycomb were the best in the world but after this trial he did not think so anymore. The decision was indeed unfair, but it seems that only children cry and think about how careless people really are.
As much as I loved Germany, it also holds a few not so cheerful memories. This is where I would learn that there was a dark side of my dad and from that point on I was aware that he would beat my mother. I watched and listened, not saying too much, the fantasy world I had built, like walking into a Funhouse mirror where everything would be distorted. The mirror that said I had a happy childhood and everything was fine, had broken. My dad was only violent when he would drink.
This was exploited, chiefly by the king’s first wife, Sassouma Bérété. She was furious at her son’s ruined chance of gaining the throne (and her chance to control him as king). However when the king died soon after she pushed for her son, Dankaran Touman, to be pronounced the next king. She got what she wanted, and henceforth proceeded to rule in her son’s name. She ridiculed Sogolon (Sundiata’s mother) harshly, every chance she got, finally driving Sogolon into a rage.
In the novel, Panchaali describes the situation thus: “The worst shame a woman could imagine was about to befall me – I who had thought myself above all harm, the proud and cherished wife of the greatest kings of our time” (PI, 193). What furthers her rage is the silence of all men present; nobody answers her question if Yudhistir actually still had the right to lose her after he had already lost himself. Consumed by her anger and the desire to restore her dignity, Panchaali commits the prophesied third mistake and utters the dreadful curse of the battle, which will destroy everybody and vows not to comb her hair again till “the day I bathe it in Kaurava blood” (PI, 194). Significantly, she chooses to confer up part of her traditional femininity for revenge, as particularly in India shiny fragrant hair symbolizes female beauty. Krishna appears as an answer to Draupadi’s prayer, saving her from shame by miraculously extending her sari, the endless folds preventing the final satisfaction of the voyeuristic stares.
I was very angery about my brother so I really wanted revenge from him. I ask my sisters something that he hate, they say he really scared from the Madarasah. After some couple days I discuss with my mother if Bulaale is old enough to go to Madarasah. My mother was very happy that her son will learn Qur'aan and she agreed with me. Next day Bulaale went to the Madarasah with my mother.
