The steward assumed she is weak because she is a girl. Another prove that I have stated before is when the archbishop called her not a respectable woman. He stated that as if a girl dress like a soldier is something bad and new. They did not expect these kinds of attire and behavior from women. Because of the odd things Joan does, she was punished by being killed and burned to death.
Hester Prynne is also made to wear the Scarlet letter ‘A’ on her chest which reminds her and the people of the Puritan society about the sin she committed. She is constantly made to feel guilty and suffer just because the law and the people of the puritan community think adulterous behavior is a serious crime. Hester suffers more than she deserves just because of a simple mistake she committed so it makes her a sympathetic
That incident opened Jane eyes to a world different to what she is used to in her life, which is the world of poverty. This incident resulted to Jane Addams trait of compassion, she recognized the poor and felt empathy for them. She told her father that she will live near them one day in a large house between the horrid little houses. • The need to protect others started when Jane Addams witnessed her first death. Jane Addams was a young woman when her mother friend and caretaker, Polly passed away and Jane witnessed it.
Hester Prynne is the heroine of “The scarlet Letter”, and it is possible for us to fully sympathize with her because Through reading the text “The Scarlet Letter” we can find out Hester Prynne had a difficult life and had been suffering very much comparing to other characters because she handles her situation by keeping Dimmesdale a secret even under pressure refusing to let them take her daughter Pearl from her and not hiding from the public after her sin of adultery is revealed and she is punished. Though Hester Prynne does faced her situation better than the other characters it is still she who sufferers the most. The another reason which compel the reader to sympathize on Hester Prynne is because she had to under gone the worse consequences of her sin that she must live with her relationships and interactions with Chillingworth and Dimmesdale, and the way she deal with her sin and the results of it. Even though her sin was nothing big like murdering but she had
Since society placed a large amount of their opinions on materialistic objects, they only cared about aesthetic objects like when he says “she was made unhappy by the run-down apartment they lived in, the peeling walls, battered chairs, and the ugly curtains.” this shows that she cared more for the objects that bring her nothing but fame than her own relationship with her husband as well as the more important thing in her life. He also uses adjectives related to decrepit objects to show how run down and terrible the apartment is from her perspective. The quote “apparently by some error of fate, get themselves born daughters of very minor civil servants.” reveals that some beautiful women as well as Mme Loisel are born into lower classes, but they regard it as though they have been born into the worst place possible which relates to the social expectation as most men identify it as they shouldn’t be so low class which then helps set a certain mindset for the women. This is what drives Mme Loisel to want more jewelry as she doesn’t want to be with her “low class”
The last word combination I chose, however, shows the darker part to Diana’s personality. After Claire and her father return from their short trip, she gets very jealous and compares her daughter to a “little b****” (p.90). By making her say something as bad as this, the author puts on the stage the messed up half of Diana - the part, that very little people have seen. By doing this, she depicts the topic about deceiving looks and shows us that the shell that people live in do not always match with the
King would be outraged by the reality of environmental racism. King would even be more angered by the way Environmental Racism has manifested itself into the U.S industrial architecture. Environmental racism is silently poisoning people of color as well as destroying developing nations. King would be happy to see that this issue is being discussed. King in his famous “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” King wrote “I had hoped that the white moderate would understand that law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and that when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress.” (7) Many times in King’s essay he called for “ the white moderate” to speak out against injustice in all forms.
One example of a metaphor in the poem in the poem is ¨hinting at fat fruit¨ (Brooks 16). This metaphor compares fat fruit to the wealth of the women. Their appearance suggests their wealth which causes the women to stick out in the dirty slum. This is significant because everyone in the slum knows the women don 't belong as well as what they´re trying to do. However, the ladies will inevitably return to their cushy lives and the poor will continue to live in terrible conditions.
It wrinkles too quickly, and what are you going to look like after seven real kisses" (94)? Much like artificial silk, Doris 's once "comfortable" life status is quickly wrinkled by the troubles Doris has with the men in her life. Troubles that become even worse once she turns to prostitution as a way to support herself. Many conservatives would be lamenting for the morality of times past as they read this novel, for the ruination of an innocent, but von Trotta would instead see a very modern young woman who 's main fault in life is that she is too human in a time where women were not expected to be "human," but instead, fall neatly into stereotypical categories that came with a predetermined set of rewards and consequences. She would applaud Doris 's candor and her determination to make it through, no matter what life throws at her.
Doubtless, this attitude represents a problem for Bronte. To some extent, she fails to shape an ideal orphan not only to the Victorian society, but also to any objective reader considering the different destines of both Jane and Bertha: "Yes" responded Abbot, "if [Jane] were a nice, pretty child, one might compassionate her forlornness: but one really cannot care for such a little toad as that" ( Bronte, 28). At the first glance, Jane appears to be a romantic novel in which the penniless, orphaned heroine, gets a home, and wealth at the end. But many of the critics regarded the novel to be "a dangerous book due to the outrages on decorum, as well as the moral perversity of a woman who defied Victorian social conventions" (Mozley, 432). Bronte can present her moral purpose in Jane Eyre in a calm manner to be more
