Mrs. Auld was a kind person who was unlike other white women. Slaves could look her in the face and she smiled, putting the slaves at ease. She taught Douglass how to read but Mr. Auld forbade it because he said that teaching slaves how to read would give them a way to escape. Slavery began to cause Mrs. Auld to become cruel. Douglass described this change as “That cheerful eye, under the influence of slavery, soon became red with rage...and that angelic face gave place to that of a demon.” This explains how slavery is horrible not only for slaves but also for
communism close to his American readership. Aside from his communist wish of an equal world in which every nation and every ethnicity lives together in harmony, Hughes also thematised the exploitation of the black working class as a consequence of capitalism. In "Black Workers"(Rampersand and Roessel 172) he portrays this situation. The poem is about sedulous bees, producing honey, which is taken away again when the day 's work is done. He compares the Afro-Americans to those bees, who are deprived and meagrely paid by their white bosses.
Don’t get your hands dirty by dealin’ with darkies” (78). Hence, Polly sees the slaves as below her and is appalled when she is expected to live with them (91). Through her actions, Polly demonstrates that she is jealous of the slaves because of their ability to find work and does not realize that the slaves do not choose to work, but are forced to work. Polly wonders, “who could compete with someone who worked for free” (75) and thinks that the slaves “ought to be grateful” because they were saved from savagery in the jungle (76). This leads Polly to see herself as more intelligent than the slaves, though in the later half of the
J.B Priestly presents this development as a person when she says "But these girls aren 't cheap labour - they 're people." She shows much remorse and guilt on hearing about the girl’s treatment showing that she is a caring woman. Mr and Mrs Birling have been seen as arrogant but Sheila is contrasted to show compassion and kindness towards the conditions of the workers immediately when she hears about her father 's treatment of Eva Smith. This shows that Sheila is quickly changing her personality during the play compared to at the start she was seen as an irresponsible and not mature. This has a huge impact on the audience because in the early 20th century there was going to be a war in two years which would have caused a high surge in labor jobs as the men would’ve been sent to war.
As we move through the passage, we see Adriana shift her emotions of depression away from her husband and towards her naïve sister. Adriana becomes so enraged with her sister’s comments, that she refers to Luciana’s mentality as “servant like” (2.1.26). Since servants were treated as the lowest members of society, it is clear that Adriana feels as though Luciana is making a fool out of herself. Shakespeare portrays Luciana in a manner that would suggest that she is an expert on marriage, which is contradictory in itself as Luciana is not yet married. Her tone, while initially understanding and compassionate, quickly turns into one of arrogance and righteousness.
In the book “Cut” by Cathy Glass a 13 year old girl is not getting the love and desired attention she needs. I think that the people in a child's life impact them the most in growing up and making them an adult. Parents should help to shape who you become and how you view life. They shouldn't just leave to better themselves. I feel really bad for Dawn it's really sad whats shes going through and what she does because of how her mother raised her and how she treats her, It's really unfair to Dawn.
Is it necessary for us to have such a system? But, this patriarchy system is a way for women to blame men in the first place. This actually suits the contemporary world but when thinking about such a system in slavery time within the slave men is clearly not possible with them having much in their plates already. The less known fact about this system is that it also affects men just like women. Toni Morrison in Beloved emphasizes Paul D’s weakness by humiliating him at the hands of so-called weak and restless women, contrasting to the patriarchal tendencies.
She was treated as if she had a lower social class than the rest of her family. Her step-mother “could not bear the good qualities of this pretty girl, and the less because they made her own daughters appear the more odious.” This jealousy led to taking power over her, overloading her with chores in the house and treating her as an object rather than human. They were so cruel to her, as they even mocked her, with her name originally being “Cinderwench.” She couldn’t tell her father about the cruelties that she dealt with, since if she did, her father “would have rattled her off; for his wife governed him entirely.” When the King’s son invited everyone to his ball, although Cinderella yearned to go, she was not allowed. Instead, she had to help her sisters prepare to attend the ball, When her sisters mentioned Cinderella attending the ball, they shook the topic off by stating “‘it would make the people laugh to see a Cinderwench at a ball.’” They ridiculed the person that helped them to prepare for the event and stayed ignorant to Cinderella’s feelings or wants towards the
Doubtless, this attitude represents a problem for Bronte. To some extent, she fails to shape an ideal orphan not only to the Victorian society, but also to any objective reader considering the different destines of both Jane and Bertha: "Yes" responded Abbot, "if [Jane] were a nice, pretty child, one might compassionate her forlornness: but one really cannot care for such a little toad as that" ( Bronte, 28). At the first glance, Jane appears to be a romantic novel in which the penniless, orphaned heroine, gets a home, and wealth at the end. But many of the critics regarded the novel to be "a dangerous book due to the outrages on decorum, as well as the moral perversity of a woman who defied Victorian social conventions" (Mozley, 432). Bronte can present her moral purpose in Jane Eyre in a calm manner to be more
Due the constant pressure by the society and belief system women are pressed down and this leads to gender inequality and discrimination. Women in India are backward economically, socially and politically. Woman are underestimated by man in all aspects of life. Education of women is realized for the development of the society. Without educating womenfolk one cannot think of prosperous future generation.
