Even though at the time such action was a crime, she had her own viable reasons to do so. As Nora has said, she did it for her husband, and not only for his health but also his pride. Torvald is a very prideful man who has always been the major financial contributor of the family, and as he became ill, he was no longer to support the family as before. Under the circumstances, borrowing money from someone else to cure his illness would be a harm toward Torvald’s personal pride, as he would never allow his family to be in debt, let alone having his wife to leave the comfortable household to work in order to pay for him. Therefore Torvald’s pride left Nora with no choice but to borrow from Krogstad and
The story Susan B. Anthony Dares to Vote and Jim Carrey both share the theme of perseverance. In the story Susan B. Anthony Dares to Vote, Susan shows perseverance by never giving up her fight for women's rights to vote. Jim Carrey showed perseverance throughout his life since he was homeless and had no money. In contrast, in Susan B. Anthony Dares to Vote, Susan persevered to fight for what she had believed in. But in Jim Carrey's life he persevered in order to save his life and his family.
This was the first to not only have mutual respect, but also mutual love. Saying that, it seems strange to think that it came from the Franklin of all people. The next best (but still awful) marriage tale is “The Clerk’s Tale.” The reasoning for choosing this one is that it deals with actual love (Walter did not have to choose a lower class wife), nobody was made a cuckold, and everyone lived happily ever after. “The Shipman’s Tale” and “The Merchant’s Tale” are pretty much tied for third place. To me, both stories are very similar; tales where the “blind” husband is made a cuckold of by one of his close friends.
An instance of this is when Okonkwo killed Ikemefuna, who was basically his adoptive son and whom he had grown very fond of but had been sentenced to death, “dazed with fear, Okonkwo drew his machete and cut him [Ikemefuna] down. He was afraid of being thought weak” (Achebe, 44 Online). In that moment he feared that if he didn’t kill his son he would be seen as weak, so he executed his son just to prove his devotion and strength. Ikemefuna’s execution exemplifies Okonkwo’s
Mr. Summers is the first main character introduced to readers. He is believed to be a sweet and caring individual. “The lottery was conducted—as were the square dances, the teenage club, the Halloween program—by Mr. Summers, who had time and energy to devote to civic activities,” (Jackson 335). Mr. Summers also receives sympathy from other town citizens because his wife was a stringent old woman who never wanted to have kids. When an individual thinks of summer they think of pleasant weather, the beach, no school: just complete prosperity.
The talk that he with Connie in the park showed who he was. They instantly clicked the second day they meant . He said to her “If Avery can't see your beautiful just the way you are then he's a fool and he doesn't deserve you.” He lifted her up at times like these and that's why she fell in love with him. I would think that I am viewed by others the same as someone who is kind, funny ,and just great to around because I don't judge people nor do I put them down, I love raising people's spirits and helping whenever I
Carton started out as a flawed man that cares about nothing, and thought nothing cares about him too. However he changes into a caring and loving man after he encounters Lucie. His road of life is filled with his love for her, and he will end this road for her loved one. “It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known.” He could not win his love from Lucie; however, will be loved by the readers forever. Carton is definitely a round, dynamic, and one of the most heroic characters in all the novels in this
Upon his death, a great sense of relief roams his family; a feeling that is not obtained in such situations normally. Ever since childhood, we automatically associate loyalty with family, yet little did we know that a capitalistic society and its way of thinking could get between these two terms, particularly the latter. Kafka reflects that, realistically, his odd fiction narrative can become a reality, when cornered by such society. Even Grete, the only one that took care of Gregor, seems to resent her brother after facing poverty and blames him for their current financial status. Kafka demonstrates that society's norms have the power to adjust normality, according to its desires.
No matter the strong pull of love though, Meursault escapes its grasps though his lack of empathy and basic human connections. This ideology is shared by those around Meursault: such as how Salamano lost his wife and “He hadn’t been happy with his wife, but he’d pretty much gotten used to her (1.5.44).” Meursault knows that love is only temporary and knows that love means nothing in life and cannot change anything: “That evening Marie came by to see me and asked me if I wanted to marry her. I said it didn’t make any difference to me and that we could if she wanted to (1.5.44).” He does accept that love is something tangible but understands that there is no significance to it, how it has no reason, and is not required for living. So, therefore, why should he care about this emotion if it serves no evolutionary purpose to help us thrive and grow in the universe? Like Meursault, the Universe is unforgiving and ignores feeling to continue the circle of
In the movie, Tyler creates close friendships with Paige and Mr. Stevenson. Tyler never had a close relationship with his mom that would be able to provide him with the help he needed. However, Paige was able to fill the void and provided Tyler with support and help that he needed. She also provided Tyler with words of encouragement that allow him to not feel so alone in a world full of strangers. Tyler also meets Mr. Stevenson when he tries to break up a fight between Indrid and Ingrid's sisters boyfriend.
I’ve come to terms that not all memories are happy but they are the reasons happy ones can be so much better. That being said, I’ve grown up fortunate. I have a happy family with both parents, a house, and I’ve never been deprived in a survival way. Watching the PBS video I was sad with how many letters Andre Fenton was receiving of people wanting to erase their memories, one guy even going as far to say he wouldn’t mind even if it meant losing all of his memories. At first, I thought how amazing it could be if we could erase memories because I first thought of criminals possibly getting a second chance-if they were able to start completely fresh.
