(Conklin 188). Josephine lies, possibly to reassure Missus or to avoid the consequences that she as a slave may receive talking back to their masters. Conklin has created an air of frustration and hurt feelings in this scene as Missus confesses that she knows about Josephine’s thoughts of escaping, which seem to push Josephine further and further away from her. “A pure rage gripped Josephine,” and “darkness spilled forth into the room.” (189) With this you can see the author is really putting emphasis on these thoughts Josephine is having.
Whilst Tess possesses a vulnerability that is exploited, Esther is cast out from society because of her mental disorder. A major setback for Esther’s development was the societal beliefs and attitudes surrounding mental health and its treatment, something Plath includes to highlight her own struggles with depression. This alienation manufactured her beliefs that ‘wherever I sat -- on the deck of a ship or at a street café in Paris or Bangkok -- I would be sitting under the same glass bell jar, stewing in my own sour air.’ Plath’s allusion casts Esther in the hellish realm of her own mind, a ‘glass bell jar’, forced to watch the world revolve around her when she needs their acceptance the most. The fragmented structure we see in this line through
Overall, she exhibited good confidence and seemed to have done a good job in reaching this meeting. I do think that she could have done a better job in selling the CEO, but her success in selling Shirley was clearly shown when Shirley spoke favorably of the contract and initiated its signing. Had Shirley not intervened Mary Kate could have used the closing benefit summary technique (Castleberry & Tanner, 2014). This would have helped showcase the benefits. This is beneficial because it helps remind the buyer of what the contract offers
The jealousy that marks Hedda’s feelings towards Mrs Elvsted is used to simulate the self-loathing in women that stems from the inability to fit into the traditional female role in society. Where Mrs Elvsted is docile and nurturing, Hedda is manipulative and destructive. This creates a jarring effect as the audience can directly compare the two female characters, especially when the audience notices how effortlessly Mrs Elvsted is able to influence and inspire other characters, like Lovborg and later Tesman, constructively while “everything that [Hedda] touches becomes mean and ludicrous” (p 99). It is ironic that while both female characters were feeling unfulfilled, ultimately, it was Mrs Elvsted - a character who fit into the female role completely - who passionately rejects society’s conventions whilst Hedda kept trying to act within such conventions, even though she had made it clear that she was miserable. This further emphasises Mrs Elvsted’s perfection as she becomes socially liberated, though she only does so to remain emotionally close to Lovborg and continue to play a supporting role to him.
But with Augustus, she realizes the closeness was worth it—she wouldn't change it for the world. And that's how other people, like her parents and her friends, feel about her. In the end, Hazel reads Augustus's obituary for her. He writes that you can't choose whether or not you'll be hurt, but you can choose what hurts you, and that he's happy with his choices:
I am now able to see the areas in which I lack in but I also recognize my strengths as well. To become a precise writer, you have to take the initiatives that will help you do so.

Overall, I was unsure how to achieve improvement in my scholarly writing. During this course I have learned that the development of a step-by-step process will insure that I meet the basic requirements of a well written scholarly paper. For example, I reflect on the writing components and the APA citation guidelines I have collected in my writing binder. In order for me to make sure that I use concise wording, proper APA citations, and the inclusion of a well-constructed thesis in my introduction.
Introduction Kate Chopin wrote numerous poems and short stories. In my essay I will primarily deal with her novel The Awakening and the short story At the Cadian Ball. I will try to address women’s issues in her fiction, such as motherhood, marriage, adultery, sexuality. When it comes to Chopin, there is plentitude of topics to be dealt with; however, I selected only a few to focus on. For her fiction, the concept of ‘mother-woman’ is highly important; nonetheless, before addressing that, I will give a short portrait of the author-woman behind it – Kate Chopin herself.
