the girl recited the words, in a perfect imitation of her mother. 'You may play around with them as long as you like, use them however you wish. If you want to make mama happy do nice things, good things; be a bad girl and mama will be angry.' that's what she told me,' Persephone finished turning her head proudly upwards. Leuce laughed a little, catching herself in time not to encourage the girl's impertinent impersonation of Demeter.
Nora finally seeks indaendance from Helmer "you're not the man to help me with that, I ust do that alone". Nora experiences somewhat of an enlightenment reflecting on how she has been treated in life: "he called me his doll-child... I went rom Daddy's hands to yours". Helmer is blind to how his controlling behaviour has had the oppiste effect and has forced Nora from him. However it is important to condier the context of the 19th centuary society and its social norms.
She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him. I’ll not have you around him, picking up bad habits and learning Lord-knows-what” (Lee 301). This statement shows that she believed the Finch family would look bad if she allowed Scout to play with someone like Walter. This statement also causes the readers to collate her with Hilly when they realize that they both treasure the reputation of their family. In conclusion, Hilly and Aunt Alexandra both value their status in the towns they reside in and wish to maintain it.
Ironically he does so by doing nothing. Nick Carraway’s passive nature leads to the many mishaps in the novel, which stresses the idea that not being evil does not necessarily make someone a good person. “I’m inclined to reserve all judgements” (1) Nick states at the beginning of the novel, which instantly sets up his passivity. His passiveness sparks complications early on, such as when Tom takes Nick to meet Myrtle in secret. Nick tags along because he “had nothing better to do” (24) and seems to have little qualms about the fact that Tom is cheating on Daisy openly.
to minimize future suffering in a situation they have little to no control over. Lawrence Langer describes the decisions mothers were faced with is “what I call choiceless choices, because whatever you choose, somebody loses—shorn of dignity and any of the spiritual renown we normally associate with moral effort” 2. Thus, choices out of desperation needed to be made, such as entrusting others with the location of buried valuables. Regina Kandt wrote to her husband to inform him that, “I’ve hidden some things, so if our kind Lord will give us the good fortune of seeing one another again, not everything will be lost. ... Everything is being arranged according to the possibilities … Katiusha knows where everything is.
Besides the point that he does not want his own daughter to get hurt by another man, but he also cares about his reputation too. Polonius was devoted to King Claudius at the time, and since Claudius was not in a good relationship with Hamlet, Polonius does not want his daughter to embarrass him by being in a relationship with Hamlet. Polonius’ words to Ophelia showed that he is a person who cares more about material well-beings and his own reputation than his daughter’s happiness. When Ophelia was explaining Hamlet’s actions, she said that “He hath, my lord, of late made many tenders of his affection to me” (108-09). The word “tenders” has three meanings: kind, money, and to give.
Anne did not like all of the people she stayed with, like Mr. Dussel, but she did not discriminate. That could explain why she said that she believes people kindhearted deep down. Anne could have decided to hate Dussel and skip his Hanukkah gift, but she did anyway and that contributes to the quotes later said about others. Anne was optimistic and looked on the bright side of everything. She said in the play ‟Don’t say that, it’s so wonderful to see them!
Overall, through standing up for herself, through her friends standing up for her, and through being wise enough to ignore the other kids’ insults, Angela dealt with teasing while still accepting her own culture, which is the most positive way to cope with a personal challenge. Kylie also has a personal challenge, which she copes with in a different yet positive way in “Kylie’s Project”. Kylie has a disability and is shy to tell about it, and also is shy to tell about her horseback riding. Kylie deals with her problems in a couple different ways. Firstly, she copes partially with the disadvantages of her disability with therapeutic
Margaret also takes care of Ellen...she is also the wife of Ellen’s father if you didn’t know already. She seemed caring and sweet kinda like I am unless you get annoying which is a lot of people but I’m able to keep quiet. Then we have Tam..who was known to not be nice or trusting but he earns Ellen’s trust by saving her. They may or may not like each other….well it kinda seemed like it, mostly how Tam gave her a kiss when she kinda protected him and cared for him, when she thought he might have died...but he was faking. Also if you wanted to know how Margaret lost her pelt and wasn’t able to go home I will now tell you.
Therefore, he believes that children are the only people who aren’t “fake”. In the end, Holden’s infatuation with phoniness boils down to him feeling like he doesn’t fit into a society in which he doesn’t want to conform to fit into. Baer and Gelser agree by stating that, “Reconsidering the concept of therapeutic landscapes in J.D. Salinger’s “The Catcher in the Rye” Holden’s main obstacle was staying “a child without defiling childhood by his current reality.” (Baer and Gesler, 410) Similarly, Daniel Mendelsohn states, “one of the novel’s many markers of Holden’s problem, which is a refusal to grow up. The allergy to change, the inability to countenance compromise and the self-congratulatory contempt for anyone who has done so...” (Mendelsohn, 1) Holden reasons people are phonies because he cannot accept the fact that people's behaviors, personalities, and actions will always change when surrounded by other people because it is a force of nature that everyone learns to do so that they can survive in the
