Heroes take shape in many different forms.

Nora continuously goes to her husband, Torvald Helmer, for money. The first scene opens with Nora begging Torvald for money for Christmas gifts. This scene shows her to be entitled to her husband’s earnings.
Because at the end of the book Ronald Cotton and Jennifer Thompson finally met and she thought that since she had him locked away for about half his life, in the end he said that he didn’t want to hurt her and that he forgave her for all that she has done. At the end he said that “I forgive you”. For me in the beginning I could not understand why he forgave her for locking him up for all those years for a crime that he did not even commit. I was thinking in my mind that I would have lost it when I got out because I tried to convince the court many times that I was not the rapist and I was in jail for over 10 years. I don’t know what I would have

Montag and Mildred have been married for years, but Montag still feels as if he doesn’t know the woman he’s married to. In the text, Bradbury states, “And [Montag] [remembers] thinking then that if [Mildred] dies, he [is] certain he wouldn’t cry. For it would be dying of an unknown, a street face, a newspaper image, and it [is] suddenly so very wrong that he [has] begun to cry, not at death but at the thought of not crying at death, a silly empty man near a silly empty woman,

Nora is a character that will do everything that somebody tells her, she is kind of submissive regarding what Torvald says. She has to mention him at least once while she’s talking about anything, but she does have some petty forms of rebellion, like the macaroons. A larger way of her rebelling would be when she pays for the trip so that Torvald can get better. She is viewed as a child by Mrs. Linde, Christine, and is treated like one by Torvald and it seems almost like they look down on her because she is a woman and she is completely dependent on her husband. Her character, at this point, has no backbone; she is completely captivated by this life in which she perceives as

There is a quote that constantly surfaces around throughout the story “What is one to do.” This is said by a woman who is completely powerless to the male population, so she has no choice but to stay. Flannery O’Connor connects this story to the time she went through a mental breakdown and was sent away. Her husband sent her to a man named Weir Mitchel; he was the man that tends to these types of cases. To men, this seemed to be something that wasn’t real.

After they both almost committed suicide, Haymitch told Katniss that the Capitol was not happy with what they did. In front of the cameras, they say it was because of love, but that little act of rebellion saved both of their
Whenever Holden feels as if he might be getting somewhere with someone, he repulses, so this may be the reason why he had never called Jane, because he was not “in the mood” to get rejected by someone he cares about and have to experience those feelings all over again or even more than he already does. Lynette C. Magaña with Judith A. Myers-Walls and Dee Love, Provider Parent Partnerships, “Different types of Parent-Child Relationships,” provide a list types of relationships children may have with their parents and how it affects them.
