To Surrender Self Worth for Society Too often in the community of Mango Street, a women’s independence is compromised for the greater authoritative figure, men. One might even go far as to say that gender roles represent a social construction on Mango Street. The people of the neighborhood grow to learn the ways of those before them, only to carry out the confinement of the women and oppression of the men. What is most appalling is that the women learn to accept their roles as helpless and incapable. In the novel The House on Mango Street, Cisneros uses the motif of gender roles to develop the theme that because women are often inferior to men, they view themselves as less important and must rely on men to determine their role in society.
She repeats the issues that go around in her life but in very precise detail.

Later Brady goes on to use
During the Victorian age, men was scarce and few. There was more women than there was men, which made it a buyers market. Men would deceive women to do whatever they wanted and the women will do it to make them more appealing because, they were so desperate to get one of the few men that was around. In the poem the “Goblin Market”, author Cristina Rossetti presents a story of how men are tempting women with fruit and with athat fruit, women are giving up their lives. In the poem the goblins are men and the fruit is a woman’s virginity.
Where ignorance is bliss, ‘tis folly to be wise. In a society that functions by this proverb, wisdom is hard to come by. However, for a being longing for this wisdom, with a natural urge of curiosity, this “bliss” is hell. Equality, a being longing for the validation of his differences in a society of group mentality, is spare of individual morality. He accepts the ignorance of total equality that is forced on him, but is contrastingly different from the image of a part of a communal whole.
Both display a drastic change through the narration with a notable large space. Heaney might have done this intentionally to emphasize that there has been a real change in the inner part of the person and that his experiences and way of thinking has transformed since childhood. In the second stanza of “Blackberry-Picking” holds the sense of disenchantment because the berries fermented and fungus was growing in it, besides thy torn sour. This can be linked to the fact that to growing up and be a mature and strong figure is not the best thing that could happen in one’s life. Therefore, films, series or TV portray a fictional life that make younger individuals create an unreal life that at the end it won’t be true, and that’s when the disappointment begins.
A glance at today’s world reveals that society is a ground of greed. In society people are advancing for their aesthetics and social standing rather than wishing to advance on capability or for self improvement. In Guy de Maupassant’s short story, “The Necklace”, the views and thoughts of society exhausts the characters in an endless effort in which satisfaction is unable to be achieved, which is revealed through Marxism and Feminism theory. For one, the desire to reach a higher view in society of oneself through aesthetics and equipment. As well, the creation of repressed desires through the treatment of women in society.

Society is a dangerous and ruthless beast. A person’s wish to belong in society can ultimately be their demise to not only their financial stability but as well as their social status which is ironic, for the actions they take to belong only further separate them from society. These actions are particularly common amongst poor folks as they wish to be a part of society, but their poor financial decisions to spend all their earnings on exquisite items only drags them further away from society’s acceptance. In Tressie McMillan Cottom’s Reading, “The Logic of Stupid Poor People”, She describes her life as an African-American child born into a poor family who were able to manage their funds wisely and live comfortably while families similar to her’s, but to only manage to dig themselves into deep and unforgiving caverns of financial debt. I agree, for I have witnessed many cases of poverty stricken people drag themselves further into financial debt all for useless status symbols.

In contrast, a result in a negative outcome of isolation and disaffection can be determined by the infirm conventional model of this kind of experience/belonging. To avoid these relationships, these individuals may attain the same
