But yet they both sometimes don’t respect their mother. Mama is a gentle women, she always has to be honest with her children. Mama is not an educated women her school closed at the second grade. ”I never had an education myself” (Walker, 316, 13). Mama doesn’t work, what she does is butcher hogs and milk cows.
Which possibly could have turned the entire case around she chose to stay quiet and comply with what everyone was telling her. Mayella was was just a poor girl who had never been to school a day in her life and suffered so much abuse from her father, she didn’t give herself the opportunity to be powerful. In a time of oppression and depression Mayella standing up would have been a monumental change but she never seized it and took advantage, she let everyone else take advantage of
F. Scott Fitzgerald portrays the character of Daisy Buchanan as a woman born into a wealthy ‘old-money’ family, where she’s a victim of traditional values that must be upheld. Daisy comes across as helpless and childlike possibly due to her sheltered upbringing. On the other hand, she is materialistic, insincere, and deceptive. Daisy commits a violent crime without acknowledgment or remorse. She comes across as somebody who is devoid of real emotion; she allows Gatsby to pay the ultimate price for her wrong doings and fails to show an ounce of gratitude in his wake.
When we look into all of that we can conclude that she is lonely, she has no one to talk to no friends and no family she has no one except fir husband who doesn’t give her any attention, throughout the whole novella never do we ever see him and his wife encountering each other they are always looking for each other. She is looking for him, or he is looking for her, they are never together. So, I don’t blame her for what she is doing her life is not what she expected it to be she had hopes and dreams were crushed and ruined when she married Curley just like her death ruined and crushed George and Lennie’s hopes and
Curley treats her as a possession by isolating her and forcing her to stay in his “house alla time.” Even Crooks, Lennie, and Candy– a crippled “nigger”, a “dum-dum” and a “lousy ol’ sheep” – refuse to talk to her, suggesting that being a merely being a woman is the worst kind of ‘disability’. Steinbeck uses this hierarchal disparity to illustrate the injustice of sexism. Steinbeck further protests this injustice when Curley’s wife reveals she has a “dream”, yet is too “lonely” to tell anyone else. She has “nobody” to share her thoughts and feelings with because of her sex. Her death represents the futility of trying to overcome sexist prejudice – she dies trying to confide her loneliness in Lennie – and Steinbeck uses this fact to emphasise the extent to which sexism defines her life.
“Ain’t even funny” creates irony as her morbid undertone allows the reader to see her dangerous capabilities, creating tension as she jokes about a serious matter. This presents Curley’s wife as cruel, however, we can also sympathise with her. This is because we can see her loneliness and isolations highlighted in the fact this is the only human interaction she receives. Curley’s wife’s mentally fragile as she is consistently dehumanised by the idea no one wants her opinions or thoughts on anything because she is viewed as a possession rather than a person, like many in the
Since she is the only women on the ranch, she is not only looked down upon, but looked at. “’I get lonely’ she said ‘You can talk to people, but I can’t talk to nobody but Curley, else he gets mad. How’d you like not to talk to nobody?’” (Page 87) This quote is said by Curley’s wife when all the men went into town, including her husband. It shows that she spends all her time alone in her house as the men work in the fields. She is also not allowed to talk to anyone but her husband who spends all of this time in the fields, so she feels like she is living alone all her life.
Daisy Buchanan is merely at fault for Gatsby 's death. Daisy’s lack of self reliance and ignorance prompt her to be easily led into making bad decisions, causing her to lash out and be held responsible for the death of Gatsby. Being a women of the east egg society Daisy Buchanan has always been apart of the idea of “old money”, signifying that her whole life she has had everything given to her and she doesn 't have to rely on herself for her own self making. These factors impact her in her later life when she is faced with the consequences of Myrtle 's death. Daisy being responsible for the death of Myrtle ultimately leaves her to make the careless decision of letting Gatsby take the blame, because Daisy 's ignorance and lack of self reliance
Curley’s wife is the only woman on the ranch, and none of the ranch hands will talk with her, out of fear of dealing with Curley. Curley’s wife is unhappy with her marriage, talking to Lennie about her dream of acting saying, “If I'd went, I wouldn't be livin' like this, you bet" (Steinbeck 88). The other ranch hands are convinced that she’s looking for trouble, when she really just wants to talk. She expresses many times how she is not happy with Curley, since he controls seemingly her every move. In a different time period, much later than the 1930s, Curley’s wife would be able to pursue her acting career without the constant pressure of a man who controls her.
Beth, Conrad’s mom, seems to care about nothing more than her reputation, which proves to be a key reason for the family's professedly endless grieving. She herself has not dealt with the grief brought on by the death of Buck. She constantly has her guard up and is quick to steer away from any situation that even remotely pertains to her life before the tragedy. As a result, she struggles greatly
Mama describes herself as a big-boned woman with hands that are rough from years of physical labor.She wears overalls and has been both mother and father to her two daughters. Poor and uneducated, she was not given the opportunity to break out of her rural life. She doesn’t understand Dee’s life, and this failure to understand leads her to distrust Dee. Mama sees Dee’s life as a rejection of her family and her origins. No doubt when Dee sees [the house] she will want to tear it down” (155).
