She is also upset because Walter is giving in to racial tension and calling Mr. Lindner back to negotiate taking money in exchange for not moving into the white neighborhood. Lena immediately snaps back and calls out Beneatha for not learning to care for her brother. In this scene Lena’s maternal instinct really shines through. Even though she is disappointed in Walters foolishness and lack of pride, she knows that Walter is at his lowest point and that persecution and ridicule will not help the situation in any way. She also understands that his pursuit of money wasn't for self interest but to make things better for the whole family.
In conclusion, there were many ways in which Hepzibah experienced significant life changes. These changed came about by Hepzibah gaining the strength and confidence from those loved, mainly from Clifford and Phoebe. Hepzibah was able to stand up to Judge Pyncheon and finally break free of the house that imprisoned her for many
Anyways, I disliked the idea of how they made Sara look like a freak due to some of the traits that she carried. For example, her buttocks. And the fact that when she died, the people did not want to give her body back to her family. Why on earth would someone who did not know Sara would have the right to have her spirit with them instead of their family? It’s absurd.
Nora is a married woman and has children to take care of. She really has little freedom because of the way Torvald treats her. She is not even I feel as if deep down she knows she is not free and wants something more in her life then to be a entertaining puppet for Torvald. She realizes at the end of the story that Torvald is not good to her because of the way he acted when she told him about forging the signature. When Torvald called her a criminal and other harsh words she realized that she had no true love from Torvald and wanted to be free from him.
For example, the narrator in “The Word Love” lives a hideous life. She is not proud of her life in America because she is forced to do things that her mother warned her against. She lives with a man with whom they are not married, and she hates it that the practice goes against the values that her mother taught her. On the other hand, in the story “Silver Pavements and Golden Roofs” a girl from
Lucy despises this notion almost as much as she loathes her mother and struggles with it daily. One concept she finds very repulsive is the importance of a woman’s image. She is disgusted by Dinah’s obsession with beauty and comments that “among the beliefs I held about the world was that being beautiful should not matter to a woman, because it is one of those things that would go away” (Kincaid, 57). Later on she mentions that “for the first time ever [she] entertained the idea that [she] might be beautiful”, but declares that she will “not make too big a thing of it” (Kincaid, 132). Lucy’s rejection of society’s emphasis on appearance frees her from the insecurities that are brought upon by a self-image based on looks.
Also she did not want to leave any possibility of revenge that the children could take on killing of their father’s wife. Medea’s actions are justified by her emotions as they are difficult thing to control at times. She is also raised in a different culture so she did not conform to the values of Corinth and did not easily accept that Jason married another woman. For the male audience, the evil deeds of Medea confirm their belief that women should be uneducated and kept at home. Medea was a divine character.
A girl was not, as I had supposed, simply what I was; it was what I had to become. It was a definition, always touched with emphasis, with reproach and disappointment. Also it was a joke on me(142)”. The main character does not take into account how her mother might want someone to bond with until she is older. Because of her immaturity she has a bad relationship with her parents and her brother even though her thoughts are justifiable.
She was treated as if she had a lower social class than the rest of her family. Her step-mother “could not bear the good qualities of this pretty girl, and the less because they made her own daughters appear the more odious.” This jealousy led to taking power over her, overloading her with chores in the house and treating her as an object rather than human. They were so cruel to her, as they even mocked her, with her name originally being “Cinderwench.” She couldn’t tell her father about the cruelties that she dealt with, since if she did, her father “would have rattled her off; for his wife governed him entirely.” When the King’s son invited everyone to his ball, although Cinderella yearned to go, she was not allowed. Instead, she had to help her sisters prepare to attend the ball, When her sisters mentioned Cinderella attending the ball, they shook the topic off by stating “‘it would make the people laugh to see a Cinderwench at a ball.’” They ridiculed the person that helped them to prepare for the event and stayed ignorant to Cinderella’s feelings or wants towards the
There, Twyla did not want to get along with the other girl. In fact, when "the big bozo" introduced them each other, she said "My mother won't like you putting me in here." (Morrison, 1983, p1). With those words she meant that she did not want to share the room with Roberta. She used very aggressive words toward her like "The minute I walked in and the Big Bozo introduced us, I got sick to my stomach" (Morrison, 1983, p1) or even "If Roberta had laughed I would have killed her" (Morrison, 1983, p1).
