There is an interest in literature with well written female characters. Simple readers and well renowned critics alike all seem to greatly enjoy the concept of a well written woman. Modern authors, such as George RR Martin, who write these “interesting women” are still questioned today about where this comes from. People seem to have a fascination with women being written as intelligent beings, with their own important, motives. This fascination is often held mainly around just women characters who are just written as real women.
One aspect of her that I found incredibly refreshing was that she was unwilling to accept anything based on faith alone. She was a woman of scientific, logical, and rational thought. Of the woman writers that we have studied up to this point, to me, she is the
Throughout the Harry Potter series, it can be seen that the most significant female character is Hermione Granger. The portrayal of Hermione shows Rowling believes about how women should behave as she is seen as the epitome of girl power (Pham, 2014). Her cleverness are shown throughout the series where she is seen to read and study a lot. Besides being smart, Hermione is known to be brave as she follows Harry’s battle to fight Voldemort by defeating the rivals. Other than that, she is known for being a loyal friend and independent, specifically from boys.
Similarly, her image as a “poor and plain” protagonist only added to the inferiority of her status (182). This pessimistic outlook was the effect of years of abuse, negligence, mistreatment, and solitude. Though she was a well-rounded woman, when compared to the others, no qualities caused admiration unto the public, consequently causing her to easily be overlooked. St. John Rivers continuously highlighted her similarities to other females, yet their distinction through the passionate vigor of her character. The “intolerable defects” the protagonist possessed often seemed to deem the rest of her interior qualities (152).
She never tries to save herself, nor does she ask others to save her from misery. As scholar Kay Stone notes “heroines are not allowed any defects, nor are they required to develop, since they are already perfect.” In the end, the heroine is saved by a noble Prince and gets her happy ending
These poems gain nothing in removing female presences, nor would they lose meaning should they mention them in more than the role of elevating men. Boland simply wishes to do this, to make women in poetry be their own person, to have lives as complicated as their male counterparts without using domination over men. This is why the women in “Mise Eire” simply
The redeeming qualities that Turtle does possess are not truly acknowledged by her, as all she thinks about is how stupid she is when making small mistakes. Martin’s mental abuse on Turtle has her believing that she will never amount to anything important and this causes her to be distant and maintain hate that manifests in small bursts like her, “what do you know about it, sugar tits?” comment to Rilke. The author evokes a tone of voice full of empathy towards both girls because at the end of that interaction both suffer from some kind of
Elizabeth 's sparkling and teasing wit brings on Lady Catherine 's disapproval and Darcy 's admiration. She is always interesting to listen to and always ready to laugh at foolishness, stating, "I hope I never ridicule what is wise or good. Follies and nonsense, whims and inconsistencies do divert me, I own, and I laugh at them whenever I can." Because of her exceptional powers of observation, Elizabeth 's sense of the difference between the wise and foolish, for the most part, is very good. (Josephine, 2003)
In both articles, the teacher showed no connections with students. However, Wayman didn’t give up on helping his students but Katie did walk away from her class.

Addie had always felt that she was completely alone and made unaware of. When Anse came along, she was more than happy to flee from the loneliness of being a school teacher. She dismisses her courtship with the curt words: "So I took Anse." Her great desire was to make other people aware of her presence. And she felt that only through violence could she achieve her goals.
This character is also humorous. Who is your least favorite character and why? When it came to overall contribution to the story in conjunction with the style in which Cee-Cee is presented, as an uneducated girl who is reckless and sloppily written. What three things did you like the best? 1.
Nova wants to be a detective someday, which sort of fits perfectly with the situation she is thrown into. She is smart, fierce, vulnerable, and thick skinned all at the same time. I actually really liked her even though I had a hard time getting into her head at first. When you have such a developed character, like Nova, the little things that would normally bother me had absolutely no effect. Sure, I still got annoyed with her sometimes, but it no was nowhere near the scale of making me want to quit the book like some others have before There were so many great characters all packed into this one story, I think Kelly deserves some serious acknowledgement for that
Aibileen Clark from The help is my most favorite character because I realize that Aibileen is one of the strongest women that I ever known. It is not easy for everyone to control their own emotion when they were disdained and Aibileen proved it for me. I can see that to be maid is very hard and torture but she can distinguish that Mae Mobley(A baby) is innocent, so she take care Mae Mobley very well while Mae Mobley’s mother always ignore Mae Mobley and hit her. Aibileen is brave too. She dare to share her bad experience with Skeeter for Skeeter’s book even she knew that it can do harm for her if other white people know about this
