She also helped every girl that could have been affected by Andy. This conflict affected her mentally and physically because she lost a lot of friends and had a low self esteem. The healthy thing that she did in her conflict was too stand up to Andy. Melinda in the book Speak was not the only character that handled their conflict healthily, “The Masque of the Red Death”(written by Poe) handled conflict well. The Prince was a mean
Tan expresses the changing connection between the main characters’ mother-daughter relationship through the use of metaphors. This is shown when Rose Hsu Jordan talks to her mother about her recent divorce with her husband, Ted. Tan illustrates this with the quote, “And below the heimongmong, all along the ground, were weeds spilling over the edges…” (Tan 220). The weeds spilling over the sides were killing the heimongmong plants, which was a metaphor for Rose’s confusion. This was representative of how her mother helped Rose to be more assertive about her divorce, and to finally realize what she wanted
Women were thought of as weak and unable, and they did not question a man’s authority. Through the development of this story, it shows how passive women with postpartum depression were treated poorly and it resulted in mentally ill patients rather than healthy ones. The ever changing tone, vivid imagery, and ironic situations all show how the woman comes to understand who she is. The narrator in this story comes to the realization that she is the woman in the wallpaper she has envisioned- trapped in this world by her own husband. To break free of this entrapment, she ripped off all the wallpaper so no one could put her back into her horribly vivid
First of all, her emotions do not show she is psychopathic enough to go crazy and kill her husband. For example, at the beginning of the story she seems quite happy with her husband, looks like she loves him and listens to his orders. The author shows no sign that previously, Mary was a murderer or had a mental disorder. She also takes care of her unborn baby. Second of all, when her husband Patrick told Mary that he will leave her,even though she is a good wife it sounded really “cold” and was careless.
The author shoots you into an already developing story about a nameless man and his new relationship. He is a fairly straight, solid, possibly slightly geeky type from a functional, loving background. The story is told in second person, so the woman is nameless as well. She is charismatic and chaotic, has a drinking habit that changes her from being sweet to destructive, and she never believed that relationship can have happy endings but only will end up in tragedy like what happened to her parents. That had been always her belief about relationships.
Lady Macbeth’s signs of guilt first surface in Act 3 Scene 2, where her sanity begins to deteriorate. Thinking out loud she says, “Nought’s had, all’s spent, where our desire is got without content.” All the trouble they went through to get what they wanted was a waste because it cost them their peace of mind. Fear and anxiety are taking over Lady Macbeth to the point of bringing out the humility from deep within her as she refers to her husband as “my lord.” Earlier she spoke at Macbeth and challenged his manliness. Thriving in confidence and power she saw him as nothing but a tool to get what she wants, but now that she’s seen a little blood and had a few nightmares, it has literally brought out the respect in her. She also asks him, “What’s to be done” which forces the audience to wonder where “mastermind Lady Macbeth” has gone!
Provocation is something most professionals will not tolerate, but the doctor in this story was able to keep things under control. Nobody will accept defeat of any kind. This we can see after Mathilda was left with a sense of defeat, she changed from a defensive to an offensive approach as the doctor reveals, “now truly she was furious. She had been on the defensive before, but now she attacked. Tried to get off her father's lap and fly at me while tears of defeat blinded her eyes.” To conclude, “The Use of Force” in an interesting story with a happy end for three characters while the fourth character is left with a sense of defeat.
Lady Macbeth wants to be a controlling figure in his life and please him rather than herself. It is prone for women to burn-out and become depressed because they are more likely than men to be people pleasers who often ignore their own needs (Cape Times 2013). Although she demonstrates a strong character in the play, sometimes characters lead to their own downfall. With all these troubles that build up, Lady Macbeth deteriorates more and more each time to the point where she visits a doctor. The doctor concerns about her mental health and says, “Look after her./ Remove from her the
(l.42) The husband decides everything for the protagonist and thinking it’s for her own good, but eventually his methods proves to worsen her illness, she can’t even write. She also has a brother, who is a doctor that doesn’t really help her on her sickness and just orders her to rest. The poor character has two family members that should be helping her, instead they are making her worse, even though that is not their intentions. In the story, she suffers from a mental breakdown after she obsesses over a wallpaper that consumes her every moment. She starts acting paranoid because of the things she is seeing in the yellow wallpaper.
They both have dissimilar reasons for their depression, but have a single way of coping with it. Suzy’s depression is ignited by the fact her stern, cheat of a mother is having an affair with Mr. Fox—who has no acknowledgement of what could happen to others involved. Her mom’s uncaring tone used when hollering through the megaphone when it was time to eat and the book Suzy found, “The Very Troubled Child,” are clues to why she is uninterested in her mother; on top of it all, her father’s distance is what makes Suzy feel unwanted and isolated. Sam on the other hand is desolate, orphaned, and restrained. His parents are deceased and he travels from one home to another with only the pride of being a khaki scout, but not even that is enough to make him happy.
Kate arrives at the school only to see flashing lights and people everywhere. A police officer shares the shocking news with Kate; her daughter jumped off the roof. Struggling with grief and disbelief, Kate and lieutenant Lew try to piece together Amelia’s unsuspected death. I’m reading Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight. In this journal, I will be questioning, predicting, and visualizing.
I don’ like Curley.” (pg. 89 Steinbeck) With this Curley 's wife attempts to explain for the first time her unhappy marriage to Curley. In The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton Cherry Valance 's relationship with Bob is portrayed similarly: Bob is always drinking and Cherry hates Bob 's personality and impulsive actions, but she seems too scared to break up with him because she might lose her status in the gang. In both books the characters need to obtain a certain status which prevents them from expressing their feeling towards each other and, as a result, they end up indulging superficial
One comment that stood out to me was “women are used to worrying over trifles.” The words trifles means something of little value or importance, by Mr Hale stating women are used to worrying over unimportant items, it shows he doesn’t truly care about women’s thoughts. Sheriff Peters isn’t considered oppressive, but he is extremely dismissive of his wife’s thoughts and concerns. He is also quite prejudiced towards Minnie in the fact that she killed her husband. The final Man in this story is Mr Wright. Although he is dead and he never speaks, we do
(Page 149-150) Changing yourself is very hard, but avoiding your bad habits and ignoring people is easy. After she tries to change and fails, Maleeka choses to avoid and ignore the people who taunt her.

The tide turns to her, she is no more judged the same way as she was judged before.
