With the Character traits such as Blanches, she realizes her mistake but will not openly admit to them out in the public eye. “The touch of your hands insults them.” (Williams 37) She holds her secrets close, and when people ask’s for the truth; she’s feels like they 're being rude or against her. But when she opens up; is when she starts to lie and get defensive instead of telling the complete and honest
Now it is okay to be angry, but Ssqueaky holds a grudge and gets in your face. These stories can be contradictory in this aspect. In ¨All American Slurp¨ the girl wants friends but she doesn't know how to fit in, but in Raymond's Run Squeaky is capable of making friends but isn't kind to people.The other reason why she doesn't have friends is because she has to take care of Raymond. Raymond can be a handful because he is disabled. Another reason why she doesn’t have friends is because if
This quote supports my claim because it shows that Mildred is subconsciously unhappy, but denies it. Mildred does this because she does not want to acknowledge the fact that she is not happy acting and living like the majority, for then she would become an outcast in the minority.
However, people fear showing their unique characteristics because they do not want to deviate from the norms of society. Clarisse and Mildred exemplify the effects of conformity. Clarisse’s curiosity and awareness of the world demonstrates the benefits of not conforming to a society that hides the truth from its citizens. Mildred’s ignorance and reliance on technological gadgets is just to cover the realities of her meaningless life. Clarisse’s death represents the intolerance of nonconformity.
When it comes to her love life though, Shazzer cannot completely follow her radical feminist belief and act as though having to wait for a call from a potential love interest had no effect on her. She clearly despises men’s superior role to women in society and tries to tackle this problem by stating her opinion and acting on her beliefs (being a solid believer in sisterhood and putting it over her relationships with men). Shazzer’s character in the novel does not completely fulfill the role of a feminist cliché but she definitely has some characteristics that match up with stereotypical definitions of radical feminists. These character features might prove to be problematic for the novel’s recipients as it is not an obvious ironic presentation of the media’s image of feminist activists and could be understood as criticism on feminism: Readers who believe these feminist images could feel vindicated in their
"But symbolism is very fallible, in the sense that it may induce actions, feelings, emotions, and beliefs about things which are mere notions without that exemplification in the world which the symbolism leads us to presuppose" (Whitehead 6). In The Help, chopping down the mimosa tree symbolizes Celia's willingness to take control over her own life. Celia hates the tree and finds it repugnant, but she leaves it for appearance's sake. In a similar way, she tries to adapt with Jackson society, but when she realizes they will never accept her; she decides to take control of her life. She is angry because of this situation, so she decides to express her anger by destroying and removing everything she hates and she starts with chopping the tree, "The rain is pouring down all over Miss Celia, but she doesn't care.
Though Gatsby’s weaknesses may outbalance his strengths, there is an up and down to everything. To begin, Gatsby is very naïve, his lack of judgement and wisdom do not work to his benefit. His naivety throughout the novel, blocks him from the true reality of who Daisy is. Daisy is a woman who thrives on the attention and wealth of others, she no longer loves Gatsby the way he genuinely loves her. This leads to him into taking the blame for Myrtle’s death, which he would not have done, if he was not protecting Daisy from the backlash.
Later, in the same conversation, Lomia admits to Cape that she does not feel things; “I want to, I try to feel things -- I hate it in here, in this -- thick -- pitch -- everything I do, I do to get OUT (Thompson, pg. 56). Lomia is admitting to, more or less, hiding herself behind an emotional wall. However, what is important to note is that she wants to get out. She is able to realize her shortcomings and wants to be better, but does not necessarily know the right way to achieve this change.
Daisy, despite being completely at fault, allows Gatsby to take the blame, even though she claims to have once loved him. This shows how desperate she is to keep society’s view of her untainted. She wants to remain pure in their eyes, and killing someone with a car would shatter her image. She could not claim it was an accident for it would make her look inattentive, while if she claimed it was not an accident, it would make her look callous, neither of which would benefit her reputation. Her only option left was to let Gatsby take the blame and walk away with no consequences.
She was wary first of Mayor, then of her neighbors. She never truly approves Mayor and Maribel's relationship either. Alma does not show compassion. I don't think she will show compassion towards herself until she finally accepts the fact that Maribel's brain damage isn't her fault. The good note is that in the end she begins to understand that fact.
