What I mean by that is she isn’t like the go getter competitive squeaky she is more shy and keeps to herself. She shows this when she is at the party and she doesn't talk to too many people there after repeatedly being mortified by her family. An other time in the story when she show this is a little more discrete but she only has one friend. Apart from having trouble making friends she only tried making one friend. So in conclusion to the the entire essay the theme is holding the character back from what they really want.
She also refers to her family as “normal”, but fails to do this for herself in order to strengthen how misplaced she feels in comparison to them. While touching on the stark contrast of Sebold’s presence compared to those around her, she also highlights the obvious lack of understanding and empathy her peers carry for her situation. After she is visited by a neighbor, Sebold recounts, “At one point she said, ‘What happened to me is nothing like what happened to you. You’re young and beautiful. No one’s interested in me that way.’”
When Abuela first came, "I try to walk far behind them in public so that no one will think we’re together" (Ortiz-Cofer para 4). This shows that Connie doesn 't care about Abuela 's feelings to an extent that she doesn 't even want to be seen with her. This can prove that Connie made her choice to not help Abuela when she lost her way in the church since she was too embarrassed to be seen with Abuela. Connie would have spent time with Abuela if she cared about her feelings. After Connie made her choices, Abuela said, "You made me feel like a zero, like a nothing" (Ortiz-Cofer para 16).
Before she wanted to be free and to do things she wanted to do but she couldn’t because Jodie wouldn 't let her. This quote connects to the thesis and topic
Her failure to discover any part that really fulfills her presumably adds to her general feeling of vulnerability and proceeded with withdrawal from her family and, undoubtedly, whatever is left of the world. Since she can't locate a specific part that suits her, she attempts not to have any role at all; the coldness and disengagement of the pale white room makes it appear that she is attempting to rid herself of her previous life. From reading the story we can tell that the young wife has a creative side she tried writing poetry among other things, but being secluded cause her to suppress her creative energy. In some culture a woman’s role is to be a house-wife and mother. It would seem that the husband does not want the young wife to experience
She never truly approves Mayor and Maribel's relationship either. Alma does not show compassion. I don't think she will show compassion towards herself until she finally accepts the fact that Maribel's brain damage isn't her fault. The good note is that in the end she begins to understand that fact. Because of Alma's perspective towards life she's not really good at interacting with others.
She is so out of control that she doesn’t even take care of her own self at times. When Montag was sick, she didn’t sincerely care. He asked her for help by ringing him some medicine and turning down the parlor, but that was the point she cared for them more than him, so she did not turn them down. She is only with society and does not want to change by any means. She doesn’t even realize how to be different from everyone
In her free time she would write soft and boring articles, but in a point in her life she got tired of that and began to reveal her true feelings about her life and the unhappy that made her to be “just a wife “she started to write different, more honest and with liberty, such writings and thoughts did not take her anywhere in the beginning because most editors refused to publish any of her articles, they did not want to believe that the was the way women of America felt about their lives. Some editors agreed to publish here, but they would re-write her papers and say the opposite of what she was trying to show the world. After all of those not so successful articles she took the initiative and wrote what later became the symbol for the women’s rights movement. The book was “The Feminine Mystique” and after a great response from women all over America she went back to school to get a Ph.
So, generally speaking, the people of Gilead are so passive about the way that they are treated because this is the only way for them to continue to survive. Offreds passivity is something that is touched on several times throughout the novel, but she does not just learn this skill on her own, but is taught by a woman named Aunt Lydia. “Aunt Lydia said it was best not to speak unless they asked you a direct question. Try to think of it from their point of view she said, her hands clasped and wrung together, her nervous pleading smile.
Since she couldn’t obtain that said interview, she couldn 't offer a strong counter argument, or offer many other solutions than the solutions she offered. Since she couldn’t create a strong counter argument she couldn’t offer many other options and it makes you think she doesn’t realize the other options available for the situation but really she’s trying to build her argument off of what she found out. The second downfall to her argument was her credibility. Cowperthwaite stated “I set out to understand this incident not as an activist, but as a mother (who had just taken her kids to SeaWorld) and as a documentary filmmaker (who can’t let sleeping dogs lie).” Cowperthwaite is by no means a whale expert
