But looking at it she saw that it never was the flesh and blood figure of her dreams. Just something she had grabbed up to drape her dreams over” (Hurston 72). Janie figures out that Joe is not the man she had married when the “image of Jody tumbled down” she begins to understand that Joe was not at all significant to her because he never cared for her and instead he was a bad influence. Janie figures out that he “never was the flesh and blood figure of her dreams” the life she desires of with Joe Starks, is an allusion and Janie’s dreams are once again crushed. Janie is deceived by Joe because he represents empty dreams for Janie, he was a “drape [for] her dreams” Joe took advantage of Janie and manipulates her to do excessive labour for him in the store and constantly silences her.
“Talk not to me, for I’ll not speak a word: Do as thou wilt, for I have done with thee” – Lady Capulet (Act 3, Scene 5, Lines 129-130). Lady Capulet was an irresponsible mother who turned her back on her daughter when Juliet needed her the most. It seems very likely that Lady Capulet’s wedding was arranged by her family too and when Juliet rebels against this, she is against the kind of marriage her mother had. Lady Capulet is obedient to Juliet’s father and urges obedience from Juliet. Lord and Lady Capulet, although not directly killing Romeo and Juliet, prompted it from the
On page 23 the author writes “She no longer cared about the boarding school in Seattle, or her friends back in Anchorage. She was thinking about talking her mother into letting her stay with Aanaq for awhile”(Smith). This confirms Marie is uninterested because she no longer cares about the life her mom planned out for her and wants to spend her time with her grandmother. Marie does not care about the life her mom wants her to have and grew to love Aanaq. In conclusion, “Ovatniah” and “Dear Future” have differences in character traits for Marie and
Hakim doesn’t immediately pick up on Maggie’s behavior and continues trying to make unwelcome advances. Maggie’s personality is one of apprehension and suspicion toward anyone but her mother. The mood stays the same as Dee, Mama, Maggie and Hakim-a-barber sit down together to talk and Dee announces to the family that she has changed her name to Wangero Leewanika Kemanjo with the reasoning that she refuses to have the name of the people who oppressed her. Mama doesn’t know how to react and is slightly puzzled because her daughter is throwing away her family name. When Dee (Wangero) began taking things that belonged to her mother in order to decorate her new house, the mood changed quickly from bewilderment to acrimony when Dee finally went too far.

He worked at a cash register at a small suburban towns store about 5 minutes away from the beach, right in the middle of town. “ In walks these three girls in nothing but bathing suits ” ( Updike 1013 ). One is the obvious leader ( Sammy mentally nicknames her Queenie ) because she is the leader/queen of her two friends that just seem to follow her around and stand in her shadow. They came into the store, looked around, went and asked Mcmahon at the meat counter something, got the item they needed and then came up to purchase the one item. That one item her mom requested her to get was Kingfish Fancy Herring snacks in pure sour cream.
Although his mother initially wants to help out Mary Dempster, she quickly changes her mind once the incident in the gravel pit occurs.

Chapter Sixteen The Search for Everlasting An hour later we were following Sawdust Brains back down the hall, up the elevator, and into the colorful room. I sat down in a chair to the right of Ping-Pong. He looked at me with bloodshot eyes and heaved a heavy sigh. “Uh-oh, someone is a little pouty,” he said. “Would you like some breakfast?” I nodded and scooted a little farther away from him because, if there was one thing I had learned while watching nearly every episode of The Rockford Files, it was how to tell when someone had been hitting the happy sauce.
Even though she is continuously stating “‘I don`t understand...’” (345) no answer is given to her. Not by her parents and not by their siblings. Rather they draw her back into their shallow superficial behavior and distract her: “At the sight of him Laura remembered the accident again. She wanted to tell him... ‘My word, Laura! You do look stunning,’ said Laurie... and didn`t tell him tell him after all.”
She moves in with her lover, continued to live with him disregarding any future consequences. Also, her lover doesn't and can't fathom any sense out of her mother possible disapproval if she eventually knows about it. He calls it irrational.

In the novel Fahrenheit 451 Mildred never seems to want to give her husband Guy any of her time or attention; she rather give it to her gadgets and entertainment. For example, Guy was trying to discuss his life crisis with his wife and she could not even be bothered to turn off the television “‘Will you turn the parlor off?’ he asked. ‘That’s my family.’ ‘Will you turn it off for a sick man?’ “I’ll turn it down.’ She went out of the room and did nothing to the parlor and came back” (Bradbury, 46). This example shows the large role that the TV played in Mildred’s life. Not even for her ill husband would she turn off let alone turn down a program she was not even actively watching.
• Good idea – Diane replied, smiling – Let’s see if Alex doesn’t suspect it. You know she can smell secrets and bullshit a mile away. • I have been extremely careful – Piper stated, beaming and starting the dishwasher -- Do you me to pick you up at the train station or you meet us at the airport… oh, I think she’s here. Talk to you later – Piper said, rushing to hang up and nonchalantly kept unpacking the groceries. • Hey - Alex shouted, taking off her coat, strolling to the kitchen and kissing her quickly on the lips before peaking in the bags and seeing only fruits & vegetables – I see you are serious about the
Curley’s wife begins to regret living on the ranch with Curley. She starts to regret living there because of the way they treat her. And also because she could be doing better in her life instead of sitting around being bored and only being able to associate with Curley. Curley’s wife states “ I tell you I aint used to livin’ like this, I coulda made somethin’ of myself.” (Steinbeck 88). They treat her wrong because in this novella they only calls her Curley’s wife they never called her by her name so no one will ever know what it was.

Shuffling through the grocery store, I hastily pushed my shopping cart along, crossing items off a crumpled list. After eyeing up the prices, I scribbled a line through my mother’s elegant cursive font. I smile at her misspellings of certain foods, despite her previously asking me to correct her. This goes on for some time. I have my items rung up and exchange pleasantries with the cashier, and carry on with my day.
