She tends to arouse controversy. Firstly, Patient Griselda represents other women as the weak and really hopeless creatures who do not have any rights and are totally dependent on the men. Without men's instructions and help they are not able to do some particular activities. It means that wives should be fully submissive to their husbands who do not show any respect for them. That is why, the acts of Griselda seem to be absurd.
They show that they do not care and do not give him the attention he pleads for. The fact relates to Lorraine in the way that her mom, Mrs. Jensen, is constantly nagging and making nasty comments to her such as “Lose weight,” “Look prettier,” “Be perfect,” etc. etc. This makes her feel horrible about herself. John, Lorraine, and many other teens feel unwanted, lonely, and depressed.
As Nora does not satisfy any of these roles, we can conclude that she is rebelling against these expectations of society, because she is not taking care of her three children as she ought to. Moreover, Nora treats her children as dolls, by only using them to show off with visitors. This is one case of situational irony, where Nora treats her children the same way Torvald treats her, even when she explicitly criticizes that
Flora’s illness suggests that the governess is the one that was wrong, this makes the reader assume that the governess was harassing Flora to the point where she had become ill. The governess’s allegations have shaken and traumatized the innocent girl. And when accused the governess becomes distressed proving her guiltiness. This is also a case in which this scene could be interpreted in the way that the governess is just trying to care for Flora. In this scene Flora is acting very dramatic and refuses to see the governess.
When a person’s English is not up to standard, they are thought of as lesser, not as intelligent, and often treated as if they are not a person. Tan expresses this by recalling the way she “was ashamed of her [mother’s] English” and how it caused the public to treat her differently. Because of her language, “People in department stores, at banks, and at restaurants did not take her seriously, did not give her good service, pretended not to understand her, or even acted as if they did not hear her.” (para. 9). Tan then provided specific examples of these sorts of prejudice within her own life; how she had to pretend to be her mom on the phone so Mrs. Tan could be taken seriously (para.
Lear’s madness was addressed in the very first scene and then continued to pop up quite frequently as the story went on. Kent called Lear out for being mad when he banished his daughter Cordelia after she wouldn’t tell him how much she loved him (1.1.146). He realized that Lear was being extremely unreasonable and was making this rash decision without really stopping to think about what he was doing. This is not a strange thing for Lear, he has been known to make rash decision because he is so short-tempered. In fact, after Kent tried to calm him down and have him reflect on what he was doing, Lear got angry and banished Kent as well, who was his right hand man.
An example of mental abuse Celie faced was when her own “Pa” would call her ugly and state that she wasn’t smart. This truly affected her self-esteem and actually made her believe that it was true. When Celie would speak to Mr.___ she wouldn’t look at him in the eyes she would look at his knees and feet. She felt inferior to him because she didn’t know her self-worth since all her life she was told that no one would want her because she was ugly and had a lack of intelligence. Celie had it rough because not only was she psychologically abused but she was also physically abused as well.
The theme teaches you that you should do dirty things to other people if you don’t want it to switch up and turn on you. If he had taken the time out to be patient and let his mom give it to him he would just have gotten a dime. In schizophrenia the mood was all based off anger between the couple, the house was just a bad environment for the both of them. The house crumbled and was tore apart physically, due to the lack of attention that it had from the couple in the house. The couple didn’t have respect from each other or didn't act if they were appreciative to one another just as it was in the poem Those Winter Sundays.
Estella is cold to Pip for one reason, her mother raised her like that, Miss Havisham is using Estella to ruin the lives of other men. As the story ends and Pip gives his goodbye speech, both Miss Havisham and Estella realize what is happening. The speech changed their mindsets and Miss Havisham realizes what she has done was completely immoral. The speech did not impact Estella as much, what broke her was how she missed out on Pip. A Biddy says, “I had heard of her as leading a most unhappy life, and as being separated from her husband, who had used her with great cruelty, and who had become quite renowned as a compound of pride, avarice, brutality, and meanness” (Dickens, Chapter fifty-nine).
Participants in my bereavement support group are often offended and outraged by the so- called insensitive things that people say to the bereaved. One lady was so upset because somebody told her that she could still find a new husband, as she was still young. Another lady was outraged because her decision to keep the ashes of her husband on the coffee table in the house was considered by others as, disgusting There is a list of things that one should not say to the bereaved such as, “He is in a better place,” (It is a cliché),“It was God’s will,” (You don’t know that),“I know exactly how you feel,”(You have no clue) “Thank God you have other children.”(Condescending). While you can make sure that you don’t say these things to a bereaved, what if you are at the receiving end of these comments? Don’t take them seriously.
