I believe they are inadequate parents. My opinion is based on everything, Jeannette had experienced in her early years as a child, and as a teen growing up in Welch. The first reason why I think Rex and Rose Mary Walls are inadequate parents, is the skedaddle. The skedaddle is something that Rex and Rose Mary Walls used as an excuse to escape the “FBI” and debt collectors (and they had a large sum of debt).
Everyday, people make decisions that define their lives. Some people act selfishly, and only act for personal benefit, while some give of themselves for the benefit of others. In Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, two characters exemplify these converse ways of life, one of them being alive and selfless, and the other being dead to humanity and selfish. Mildred, the wife of Montag the protagonist, epitomizes such a selfish lifestyle, while Clarisse, an eccentric seventeen year old, lives for the fullness of life and for the benefit of others. Through their contrasting actions, two lifestyles surface, and they demonstrate what it takes to truly live.

First, the nature of women communication is emotive as their main aim of communicating is to get something off their chest, and hence, require a listening ear. For instance, when a woman talks about her day, she expects the listener to understand her and offer emotional support. As a result, the women expect to be relieved from the sharing experience. On the other hand, a man listens to offer solutions. Thus, the men’s idea of problems and solutions in any communication differs from the woman’s expectation.
Brooks’ position is seemingly critical of the modern day moral virtues; however, he does admit that there has been improvement in the treatment of women, or more accurately, the idea that “girls were expected to be quiet” (p 248), is one which is diminishing as “self-actualization and self-esteem” have functioned as a means for women to “articulate and cultivate self-assertion, strength, and identity” (ibid). In opposition to this, Brooks identifies three effects “on the moral ecology that have inflated the Big Me Adam I side of our natures and diminished the humbler Adam II” (p 25). These three effects are communication, in that it has become “faster and busier,” social media for it has become concentrated on “more self-referential information,” and lastly, social media’s encouragement of a “broadcasting personality” (ibid). Brooks continues to speak about social media by repeatedly labelling this age as a “more individualistic society,” one which has a steady decline in “intimacy, social trust, and empathy.” In the end, Brooks states that “it is okay to be flawed” (p 268), which can be confirmed by the previous chapters and the exceptional individuals who certainly had

she was when she was my age. In addition to coming to terms with her age, she also didn’t have an athletic son. Aside from forced sport sign ups, my brother had no interest in sports the way I did. Even still, I needed my number one fan back at my side to help me figure out what to do next. I had just made my first adult decision and I wanted an adult to help me move
This is an important quotation in the novel because of the simplicity of the diction Atwood utilizes to describe her body. It emphasizes the changeover from what Offred once thought of her body to what Gilead now brainwashed her into believing. Women appreciation has transformed from a wholehearted appreciation for the purity and simplicity of a woman to solely interest in their “central object”, their womb. Offred’s musings show that she has started to accept Gilead’s attitude toward women, which treats them as objects important only for the children that they can bear. Gilead, with these beliefs dehumanizes women and reduces them to “a cloud, congealed around a central
The passage “On Seeing England for the First Time” by Jamaica Kincaid uses repetition and figurative language to convey her resentment toward England. Jamaica Kincaid uses repetition in her passage to show how her attitudes toward England as it slowly erased the Antigua’s culture. Kincaid uses the words “Made in England” to express how the English had dominated their culture and their way of life; the Antigua people had been asphyxiated by the English and their culture so aggressively and for so long that they began feeling inferior for not being English which made them try even harder to strive and be just like them because they considered that their main goal, to be able to be part of the magnificence that was the english culture.
