In the play ‘A Doll’s House’ by Henrik Ibsen, the role of macaroons play a major role as they represent Nora’s dishonest behavior towards Torvald. Nora is completely a different person in front of Torvald; however, she tries to shield things that she does which Torvald doesn’t like. In reality, their marriage seems to be falling apart as she is not happy being with her husband as he tells her not to have macaroons, as the macaroons will damage her teeth and destroy her beauty. The macaroons present image of Nora’s longing to be liberated. She wants to have her own personality and will to live a life where no one stops her from doing what she gets pleasure from.
same things in Dallas. That was why she was afraid to see him, afraid of loving him, I knew what she meant all right. But she also meant she wouldn’t go see Johnny because he had killed Bob” (Hinton 129). To continue, Sherri was attracted to savage beings like Bob and Darry and kept these traits as a brand of excitement. Although Johnny suspended her boyfriend in self defense, she could not overcome Bob’s absence.
He also sees Ophelia as a grown women who is unable to make her own decisions. Hamlet is utterly disgusted by how feeble Ophelia is as she was following her father's scheme. Hamlet once again fails to understand that Ophelia much like himself is only trying to stay loyal to her father, much like what he is doing himself. In addition, Hamlet blames woman for giving birth to such evil and deceiving men like Claudius and himself. When he was talking to Ophelia he told her "Get thee to a nunnery.
Alcée asks Calixta about marrying Bobinôt because he knows that although he and Caixta have a natural love for each other, they cannot be together because of their societal standards. Also, the author writes, “Calixta’s senses were reeling; and they well-nigh left her when she felt Alcée’s lips brush her ear like the touch of a rose” (431). This is yet another example of Calixta’s and Alcée’s forbidden love because they express such strong feelings for each other, but they cannot actually be together. After Bobinôt asks Calixta to kiss him, she says, “I don’t want to kiss you, Bobinôt, not today. Some other time.
Walls was offered by her father to have sex with one of his friends in return for money. Luckily, she was able to avoid having sex with the man, stating that she is “not that kind of girl.” Another instance of sexual abuse in The Glass Castle is when Walls’ Uncle Stanley touches Jeannette inappropriately. After telling her mother of this incident, Jeannette receives no sympathy. In fact, Rose Mary ends up giving her sorrow to Stanley, claiming that she feels bad for him because he is “lonely.” Rose Mary also states that sexual assault is a “crime of perception.” This dismissal and victim-shaming is prevalent in today’s world. Unfortunately, even our youth experience what Jeannette Walls experienced.
He also displayed a detrimental fixed mindset regarding his unfortunate circumstances as evidenced by his “Fuck God “comment when he pondered the sad state of his reality in West Baltimore. The contradictory, but well intentioned advice from his brother, Tony, failed to resonate because he, himself, was a drug dealer and their mother, while having the best of intentions, thought the best way to solve their problem was by constantly changing locations, which did Wes no favors in my opinion, because as Author Wes states, “the hood comes in different shapes and sizes” (Moore 97) Ironically, Other Wes found trouble no matter how hard his mother literally tried to remove him from it. Wes’ problems compounded due to a criminal background, 4 kids to feed and mounting financial pressures from his family. His desperate circumstances led him to commit a fatal robbery, which he, along with his brother, Tony, and two others were charged and subsequently convicted of. During a conversation between him and Author Wes Moore in prison, where he serves a life sentence, Other Wes Moore once again displays the fixed mindset that permeated throughout his youth and now into adulthood with this statement; he says: “We will do what is expected of us, if they expect us to graduate, we will graduate.
This leaves the women at a serious disadvantage to the men, which stresses how awful it is to live without independence. Esperanza, herself, feels tormented as an objectified female as well. “What he did. Where he touched me. I didn’t want it… He wouldn’t let me go” (Cisneros 99-100).
2) So, Mathilde would rather not be around or visit her good friend because when she comes home she feels sorry for herself for she does not have all the things her friend does. When she does this, she is not only affecting herself, she is affecting her husband, and her friend. Her friend does not get to spend time with her anymore, and her husband has to deal with her bad mood. In conclusion, Mathilde is a self- absorbed character that never learned her lesson. She makes multiple mistakes throughout the story, yet she blames them on other people.

This all started after marriage that’s why I think Juan was using her. It blew my mind how she didn’t do anything after getting hit so hard by her husband. I feel like she needed to leave the house and look for help because no women would still be with their man if this happened to them. It’s crazy how she still put up with him. He’s a horrible man, he doesn't show her love instead he treats her like garbage.
