When Milkman describes dating Hagar as “business”, he creates a sense of professionalism in their relationship, which is almost purely based on sexual fulfilment.

When dehumanized, Hagar becomes a weight that Milkman feels his can drop at any time because she no longer holds any value in their relationship. The objectification and subsequent dehumanization of women such as Hagar, allows men to feel guiltless in their disposal of women because objects are not sentient and therefore cannot be effected by men’s decisions. These men feel the

The frequency to which he sends out his Indian lilies shows his sexual prowess, and unwillingness to marry, as can be seen in the quote, “Go to the florist and order a bunch of Indian lilies. The man knows what I mean. If he hasn 't any, let him procure some by noon” (330). But the sending of flowers can also send the wrong message to his conquests as index of Miss Meta.

Hansel and Gretel are faced with temptation when they come across the witch’s house deep in the forest, “[t]he old woman had only pretended to be so kind… she was a wicked witch who waylaid children and had built her house out of bread to entice them” (145). It is their temptation that leads them into a precarious situation, which almost brings them to their death. The children find a particular temptation in not the foods that are the most filling, but those that are the sweetest, something to question when they claim to be so hungry: “‘I’ll take a piece of the roof.

The use of different wrong doings allows readers to view the abuse displayed in the 1800’s. However, many others and I can attest to the novel not encompassing the dilemma of abuse enough. The men, converting it into an ideal, romanticize the abuse of women. The men are envious that Janie takes her abuse so quietly. The concept of maltreatment is made to seem common in normal life.
