She has no respect for her husband and doesn’t show any concern for him. It is further proof that they do not have a true relationship. However, it goes both ways as Curley doesn’t trust his wife at all. He automatically assumes that she is making romantic advances on Slim when he can’t find her around the ranch (pg 54, p6). Without even thinking twice about it, Curley believes the worst of his wife and that she has no devotion at all.
What Benny is saying in other words, is that she is against believing in god and is unhappy how god is credited for all of man's achievements. Benny’s family values were also little to nonexistent. As a result Benny did not carry any sentimental emotions when it came to her family. Instead Benny felt more rage towards her family as she said to Mama about Walter “ He’s no brother of mine” (145). Furthermore Benny goes on to say “There is nothing else to love” when Mama says “I taught you to love” Walter (145).
However, the master made the mistress turn on Douglass and she started treating him just as the other slaves were treated. In the autobiography, Douglass says “How could she, then, treat me as a brute.” Douglass also struggled with the idea of him never being a free man. He would play with the other kids, whom were white, and tell them how he would never be free. He says “I wish I could be free, as you will be when you get to be men… but I am a slave for life.” Douglass used his diction in this autobiography to show the political struggles that he went through as a slave. It is obvious, however, that he did become a successful man and his words of wisdom will live on
Christian never informs Roxane that Cyrano was the one who really wrote the letters because he dies in combat. Christian would have told if he had lived, but sadly Roxane never learns and has to live with the sorrow of her false love dying. Although ignorant, Christian is noble and honest. He tries to make Roxane love him for reasons other than the letters and even tries to tell her they were from Cyrano. Though he fails, knowing that what was happening was not right makes him honest, and doing his best to tell Roxane regardless of his love for her makes him noble.
Slavery coincides with ignorance, just as education coincides with freedom. Slavery relies on ignorance to maintain order and control over slaves; thus, preventing slaves from recognizing the empowerment of education, and the ability it possesses to equip them in the pursuit of freedom. Frederick Douglass’s pursuit of education helps him discover the hidden truths of slavery in his article, “How I Learned to Read and Write.” Thus, Douglass’s pursuit of education inspires his desire for freedom. The desire to learn generates determination and motivation. While still a young slave, Douglass’s master forbids his wife from continuing to teach Douglass the alphabet because it did not align with the common worldview that educated slaves had no value to their masters.
By speaking for Christian, he isn’t helping him woo Roxanne at all. She isn’t falling in love with either of them. She is in love with a collaboration, a pure fantasy. If she had married Christian, how could she live with him, knowing that he could never be the one that she had loved before? While Cyrano has many faults, it must be said that he did have his honorable moments.
When he was a child, Rufus is sweet but ill-tempered when his mother spoils him but father ignores him. When he grows older, slavery affects him and he becomes prideful, demanding, and cruel to his slaves. He does not treat his slaves well and makes Alice his mistress against her will. Rufus tries to make Alice his mistress against her will and blackmail Dana to let Alice sleep
I believe that Rufus is an alternation of his father he still sees slaves as more than a piece of property with only a couple of exceptions. For example when Dana told him that Alice doesn 't love him, but he refused to take no as an answer which showed that he didn 't really care about the way she felt or thought of him. Furthermore, he also received some of his father 's temper or anger problems. Throughout the book there been moments where Rufus would suddenly get angry and become demanding, for instance when Rufus demanded Dana to get up form her chair but lucky he claimed down before he could do anything irrational. He also sold slaves like his father and punished them when he had too.
As non-whites in America, they were met with greater discrimination as the representatives of their races. Frederick Douglass was able to escape slavery and prove equality with whites. When he was first forbidden to learn to read, he overheard his master telling his wife that: If you teach that nigger (speaking of myself) how to read, there would be no keeping him. It would forever unfit him to be a slave. He would at once become unmanageable, and of no value to his master.
Mildred hasn’t surrounded herself with loving, understanding people. She lacks the feeling of love, and even though her husband, Montag, cares about her, he is barely home. Her friends don’t even care about themselves because them, too, are emotionally disconnected, and couldn't care less about their miserable lives. Montags feelings are shallow and mediocre, he used to love her, but not the person she has become over time. On page 44, the conversation between Montag and Mildred was very bland, and even though they are communicating, they aren’t really communication.
