With Mulan, Disney opened a number of controversies about questions of masculinity and gender roles. Why is the main character a woman who is cross-dressing to be a man in order to save her father from the troubles of war? Why is she taking a role of a soldier? How is her behavior depicted? The codirector of the movie stated: “What I like about Mulan is not that she changes herself but it's really that she changes society and their way of seeing her.
A man walking by had noticed him and instead of killing it upon sight, took him home, nursed him back to health, and let Woundwort live with him. Woundwort was a savage rabbit and attacked the humans cat, almost ending its life, and still he was allowed to live with him, rather than being thrown out or having his own life ended. Another illustration is while Hazel is being attacked by a farm cat and a young girl named lucy heard his screams. Not being able to just sit and listen she went into her backyard and whacked her own cat trying to save Hazel's
Odysseus was worried sick that his wife would be unfaithful to him while he was gone, but Penelope’s intelligent thinking bought Odysseus time to return home before the suitors demanded her hand in marriage. In Homer’s The Odyssey, Penelope’s clever thinking, such as unknitting her father in law 's funeral shroud, having the suitors shower her with gifts, and devising the bow and arrow challenge, made her a key character and a perfect match for Odysseus.

Mildred’s fake friends drag her into believing the wrong things revolving around physicality, hence she just does not know anything about truth. Her friends only vote on politics based on looks and manners (93), so Mildred thinks the book Montag reads to her “doesn’t mean anything! The Captain was right!” (65). But she only believes Beatty because he seems logical to her and no one told her against his ideas. In fact, no one is even allowed to know anything because of government laws, so they have nothing to support their false claims.
Put me down easy, Janie, Ah’m a cracked plate” (Hurston 20). Nanny is successfully able to convince her granddaughter through her own traumatic experiences and make her feel “sympathy” as she tells Janie she doesn’t want her life to be spoiled like her own life was. At first, Janie refuses to marry Logan Killicks. Nanny being the older one, defends herself by saying “put me down easy” since she can no longer care for Janie and only her wish is for Janie to get married and be protected from the dangers she and her own daughter faced. By calling herself a “cracked plate” Nanny further elucidates that she went through many hardships in her own life and wants to do the right thing for her granddaughter by
Every year, almost 50 million turkeys get slaughtered for Thanksgiving, and this is only U.S. Us turkeys lose dear family members every year to this treacherous “holiday” that celebrates the deaths of innocent creatures such as myself. Since the day I was born, my parents and others of our flock warned me about the dangers of going near humans during the month of November. Our flock is domesticated, meaning we lost the ability to fly, which made it much harder for me to get away when being captured. At a young age I was taught how to gobble, so I can give out distress calls to my family if I am in danger.
Nora’s feelings about Torvald’s attitude is evident in the quote from Nora and Torvald’s conversation ”I was your little songbird just as before- your doll whom henceforth you would take particular care to protect from the world because she was so weak and fragile.”(Pg. 102). The literary element is Personification since Nora is being compared to a type of bird as though Nora isn 't human. Nora’s husband also got really mad at Nora for getting money on her own through a loan with Torvalds signature forged by Nora. The childish feeling that Nora is experiencing is also supported by the fact that she can’t have her
The offhand comment of Mr. Summers about having to continue without Tessie uncannily foreshadows her being chosen as the victim and contributes to the ongoing theme of victimization. Another device that emboldens the theme of victimization is Jackson’s use of characterization. Jackson singles out the Hutchison’s as her victims, but she then focuses on Tessie who she has reveal her deepest survival instinct (Coulthard 35). Tessie’s instinct to survive leads her to argue to have her married daughter participate in the lottery with the Hutchison’s instead of with the daughter's husband’s family as per tradition. Tessie arguing for her daughter and daughter’s husband to draw with the
