She didn 't want to live with the guilt of forgetting her mother 's death. The fact she had flowers in the back of her car and drove straight and fast are perfect examples of why Alaska’s death was a suicide. Alaska’s death was indeed a suicide. Her depression was very prevalent throughout the whole book. The scene of the accident is another reason why Alaska’s death was a suicide.
In Maria Lamonaca’s literary criticism, "Jane's Crown of Thorns: feminism and Christianity in Jane Eyre" she states, “[Helen’s] example and beliefs serve Jane in good stead later in the novel. It is Helen who advises Jane to study the New Testament and follow Christ's example, in particular his injunction to "Love your enemies"--a counsel that clearly influences the forgiveness Jane grants the dying Mrs. Reed” (Lamonaca
A Good Man is Hard to Find: Response “Anybody who has survived his childhood has enough information about life to last him the rest of his days.”-Flannery O’Connor Flannery O’Connor’s (A Good Man is Hard to Find) is a great American Southern Gothic published in The Avon Book of Modern Writing, 1953. This type of Gothic writing was not popular at the time, however O’Connor thrived as a writer during this time, with her grotesques satire on poor and middle-class southern whites. In the beginning of this Southern Gothic Tale is a seemingly normal family with a father, two kids, a mother, and a typical gripping grandmother. As they are leaving for vacation the granny (who reminds me of my mother) starts haggling her son to change the destination
The possibility of harmful woman “Karma has no menu you got served what you deserve”. This is what i would say Mrs. Strangeworth and Emily Grierson got and they deserved it. Everyone knew both of them but they both were not just not talkative they did their business and went back home. Adela Strangeworth and Emily Grierson sharply are compared in their stories because they basically do the same thing by hurting other people. Mrs. Strangeworth is hurting people because Mrs. Strangeworth hurt the people that she sent the letters to like they said “Didn’t you ever see an idiot child before”.
In her article, Suellen says “...it was somehow indecent to risk laying my family bare for the sake of Ann’s personal expression of grief.” It appears that Ann is somewhat selfish in this aspect, because she refused Suellen’s requests to find a smaller publisher or ask for no publicity. In Truth and Beauty, Ann writes about intimate conversations between her and Lucy, as can be seen in her writing: “She was completely, wretchedly miserable, but then told me after the fact it was because she had been on a huge heroin bender before she moved and decided that she would quit cold turkey when she got to Brooklyn” (page 245). If I were Lucy, I would likely imagine that because I had told her such secrets in confidence, she wouldn’t go out and share them with the world. And then, as Suellen and Ann both say in their literary works: “That was my
Mary Rowlandson Ashleyann Mabatid Azusa Pacific University College Mary Rowlandson Reading this week’s assigned reading about Mary Rowlandson was interesting. Mary Rowlandson lived a Puritan life and she devoted her life to God. She had strong feelings that her actions and the followers around her did the right thing when they were confronted by the wilderness and people they did not understand. Her faith prevented them from understanding what was happening in the New World. The Puritans were devoted to Christ’s salvation.
Though religion is a very important theme in Rowlandson’s narrative, another theme that s reflected in it is the role of women, similar to Anne Bradstreet’s theme. The female role of maternity is rehashed all throughout the narrative as Rowlandson mediates over her kids. She is delineated as caring to her most youthful, Sarah, until her death where upon her misery as a mother permits her to act strangely for her society; “‘at any other time I could not bear to be in the room where any dead person was, but now the case is changed; I must and could lie down by my dead babe” (Rowlandson 275). She also reflects that, “I have thought since of the wonderful goodness of God to me in preserving me in the use of my reason and sense in that distressed time” (Rowlandson 276). Then she even quickly considered departure, probably death, from what could be saw God 's will brings home her trouble at the opportunity to the reader, however her overcoming such a trial is the thing that takes into consideration her proceeded status.
Steinbeck’s carefully-selected words reveal how tough life was during the Great Depression with the distinct separation of social-classes. In addition, Curley’s wife herself remains unnamed due to the author’s intention of portraying women as they were seen during the Depression. After learning about Curley’s wife for the first time, George strictly tells Lennie: “Don’t you even take a look at that b**ch. I don’t care what she says and what she does. I seen ‘em poison before, but I never seen no piece of jail bait worse than her” (Steinbeck 32).
Granny uses her power in the household to enforce Christianity upon her family members. Young Richard is “compelled to make a pretense of worshipping [Granny’s] God, which was her exaction for [his] keep” (p102, par1). She
This thing also made me begin to rethink our society.Now,we always see some terrible news from network and newspaper,which are same as the story of Dana.For example,a pregnant woman jumped her own death for she could not bear the pain of childbirth and her family refused cesarean.Her family did out care her feeling.They only thought that the child with natural labour was healthy.Today,we live a better life,but we lost some traditional virtues,such as considering of others.If the woman 's family paid some attention to her,maybe the tragedy would not happen.We should not be selfish.We should try to help
