You might say that my mom is more strict and would like everything to go her way while my dad is more layed back and tries to compromise to make everyone happy. I have noticed that within my family the decisions are made to please the needs of the one who made them to help the family as they see fit. In the media families are, still, mostly portrayed with a working father, a stay at home mom and a few children. Like most families today, my family does not really fall under that category.
Still at the party, “‘Lots of people come who haven’t been invited,’” Daisy said suddenly. “‘That girl hadn’t been invited. They simply force their way in and he’s too polite to object.’” (108). The fact that people “simply force their way in[to]” Gatsby’s parties disturbs Daisy because they are transcending social barriers unchecked.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is about a dystopian society and how in their society books are neglected and burned. How he conveys these emotions or moment in the book by using lines from other books called allusions. Allusions are used to express how people feel in the moment of the book. Authors use allusions because it makes it easier for people to connect to the book and you get the sense of what is happening in the book. Bradbury uses it in Fahrenheit 451 because the book is complex and harder to understand so he uses allusions for the reader to get a better understanding of what is going on and what the situation is.
Montag thinks that he is happy with his life, job, and marriage, but when he meets a young girl called Clarisse he realizes that he is not happy and everything changes. Mildred, as wife of Montag, plays a very important role in the life of Montag. Through the actions of Mildred, the reader is led to the alarming conclusion that she is crazy, but the reality is the opposite. The government affects Mildred’s way of thinking and her society’s ways of thinking by taking books away.
Anyone could say that if Montag had conformed he would have stayed on the side of “good;” however, there is no true “good” side there is uniqueness and being individuality which is considered to be “good” to most people in the society in which people live. Conformity and individuality in this book were hard to see due to the fact that Montag’s society wanted everything to be perfect in a world that was not. One should always be themselves even if society tells them to be something different. Be a unique individual not something, or someone, someone else wants you to
At the beginning of the story, Mildred and Montag already had a shaky relationship. Mildred constantly tried to tell Montag to conform to society and to relax more. Nevertheless, Mildred still considered Montag to be her husband, loving him as her own. However, when Montag began reading books in the house, Mildred immediately called the authorities. Having been betrayed by his wife, Montag had no choice but to leave the city.
But he is only feeling this way because he has books and feels guilty, but he is taking his guilt by storm. Mildred is very attached to her ‘family’ in the wall. When she is mad or irritated with Montag she goes and talks to her ‘family’ because they make her feel better. But she is just programmed to think that because in reality it does not. The ‘family’ is programmed to make her feel good about herself.
She uses her brothers as an example, which she says “they’ve got plenty to say to me and Nenny inside the house. But outside they can’t be seen talking to girls” (8). In other words, her brothers are being hypocritical in a sense that they would not talk to Esperanza and her sister in public but behind closed doors they speak to them. Hence, Esperanza is forced to socialize with Nenny. She observes that Carlos and Kiki, her brothers, are each other’s best friend.
In the movie “Ordinary People” we see the Jarrett family as highly dysfunctional. Every member of the family has problems with conflict management. What could have helped the family was doing family therapy where they could have solved their problems and regain their relationship. As a human being we all need connection with someone we all need to have a sense of a strong relationship.
Madame Ratignole is always giving Edna counsel and warning her. When Edna moves into her new home alone and becomes close to Arobin, Ratignole “advise[s] [her] to be a little careful while she [is] living there alone” and tells her that Arobin’s “ attentions alone are enough to ruin a woman’s reputation” . Ultimately, Edna ignores her about almost everything. Ratignole has little influence on Edna’s decision making and Edna makes choices that she would never make, both of these facts show their dissimilarity. Edna’s relationship with Mademoiselle Reisz is different.
Fahrenheit 451 had many different pairs of characters that had many different thoughts about certain things in life. Mildred, Montag 's wife, was very negative and only cared about herself, but Clarisse cared about other people than herself and had a positive view on the outside world. Beatty thinks that books will cause the world to end, but Montag thinks that they won 't and can help teach the world many different things. Faber and the Lost Gang both wanted to make people think that books are good again, but had two different ways of doing that.. In the book, Fahrenheit 451, there were three pairs of characters who were very different from each other and represented something or somebody in a society.
Although, in Sold, Lakshmi listens to her family and trusts what they tell her when really it was wrong. Although she has her blood family, but her friends in the Happiness House count as a family also to Lakshmi. They may have not been her mother and father’s blood, but the girls in the house all act as one family. They care and trust each other just like a family does. In the story, one of Lakshmi’s family members, Anita, tells her false information.
In the novel Clarisse automatically doesn’t fit into the society, she happens to be more open minded in which it makes her question any subject. Clarisse also seems very curios about other people’s lives, Clarisse shows how she 's not scared of breaking rules by talking to Montag who at the moment happens to be a firefighter. I believe Montag found her personality unique, he had never had a conversation like that with anyone and not even his wife. For example “Are you happy? she said.
Technology in Wall-E and Fahrenheit 451 Both Wall-E and Fahrenheit 451 have serious warnings to humanity the dangers of becoming too reliant on technology. Throughout both works there is emphasis on how technology separates people from their fellow man. There are also examples of technology actively going against man in both works. Both works see technology as a major contributor to the deterioration of the human race.
Rationale: (197 words) The question that I chose from this unit was, “to what extent do the actions and decisions Malcolm and Montag make throughout the story portray the issues within their societies?”. I was interested by this question because of how simple of a term the question referred to and how it took the term deeper. While talking about the science fiction unit the protagonist was brought up as nothing special.
