The sneaking of macaroons put up with a result of Nora’s role as a child within the marriage. The macaroons show that Nora is not the perfect doll that Torvald tries to mold her into; nevertheless, she is not able to think of any other way where she can prove herself like her husband’s doll. Still, she tries to disguise her real personality and is constantly lying about many things. She hasn’t been taken seriously and treated with very less respect by her husband. Her lies are less a thought of her own character and more a reflection of her husband’s surroundings .She
The father in Confetti Girl believes that her daughter cares about novels like him when she actually does not. “‘But I left it in my locker. I guess I can’t do my homework.’ ‘Nonsense I’ve got a copy somewhere. Let me look’”(López 5).
Koly in Homeless Bird by Gloria Whelan reminds me of Matilda in Matilda by Rhold Dahl because they both insist on learning and reading even though their families are against it. In Matilda, her family is against her learning because they are all more interested in money, food, and TV. Therefore, Matilda was unhappy with her life, so she chose to live with Mrs. Honey because she treasured education just as much as Matilda. On the other hand, Koly’s family is against her getting an education because of cultural reasons. Using what I know, I predict that Koly will become forlorn with her new life and husband, which will lead to her running away from home to get an education.
Johnson refuses to give the quilts to Wangero, one wonders if it was because she hated her daughter over the rejection of the family heritage, because she had found success, or if her daughter was an unlikeable character from the start. Was there a jealousy that her older daughter had found success and confidence when she would never know any, was she jealous of the confidence her daughter displayed by saying she did not have to live under the old ways anymore, or was she favoring Maggie over Wangero, since Maggie was flawed like herself? No matter whether one sides with Mrs. Johnson and Maggie on the value of the quilts, or with Wangero, the obvious schism is clear. Where one party values them because of the family connection, the other rejects that connection because it was born out of oppression and
She does not truly respect them. Instead of using them practically, she wants to use them as mere decorations. She does not truly appreciate them for what they were made to do. For example, though her mother uses it for her butter churn, Dee requests her mother’s churn top to use “as a centerpiece for [her] alcove table.” In addition, Dee refuses to use her grandmother’s old quilts and “put them to everyday use;” rather, she wants to hang them up for decoration (Walker, 982).
She also refers to her family as “normal”, but fails to do this for herself in order to strengthen how misplaced she feels in comparison to them. While touching on the stark contrast of Sebold’s presence compared to those around her, she also highlights the obvious lack of understanding and empathy her peers carry for her situation. After she is visited by a neighbor, Sebold recounts, “At one point she said, ‘What happened to me is nothing like what happened to you. You’re young and beautiful. No one’s interested in me that way.’”
Yunior’s mother would like to learn english, but neither her sons or husband will help her learn; her sons claiming it does not matter and her husband thinking she would not be able to grasp the language. Later on, his mother becomes more bold and leaves the house to go for rather short walks in order to get out of the house and feel less trapped and depressed. Yunior goes into great description when speaking of the weather, his father, and the outdoors. Further, through his point of view we are able to know of his opinions and thoughts. Without the first person narrative, the audience would not have the necessary details to know what is going on and the context of the dialogue.
The unnamed narrator is self-absorbed, concerned only with how the visit with Robert will affect him. At the same time, the narrator lacks self-awareness. He pities Robert’s wife, Beulah, because her husband could never look at her, never realizing that he doesn’t actually know his own wife despite the fact that he can see her. Theres different narrative views such as: the view of "Bub" himself, the wife, and Robert. As the story goes on, the narrator's tone and improperness changes from corrosive to warm and educated.
Dee was shown to fluctuate between interest and disdain for her culture. When she does appreciate her culture, she only wants it for the wrong reasons. Dee wants the butter churner her uncle had made but only to use it for decoration purposes. She gets mad when she hears that Maggie was just going to use the blanket for “everyday use” and not appreciate it for its past. She even renames herself believing that she’ll be more in tune with her culture ignoring the fact that she was named after her aunt and her great grandmother.
