Clotilde Armenta, the store owner, is the voice which exceeds all others, aiding Santiago in his final attempt to get away. "Then Clotilde Armenta grabbed Pedro Vicario by the shirt and shouted to Santiago Nasar to run because they were going to kill him. It was an urgent shout that drowned out all the others." (Márquez 115). Although Clotilde is highlighted, the addition of Pedro and Santiago exemplifies the machismo is every situation.
The line ‘I’m looking for my sister, Stella DuBois. I mean- Mrs Stanley Kowalski’ delivered by Blanche, in ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’, illuminates the similar attitudes towards women throughout the Jacobean and post-war eras. The separation of the common noun ‘sister’ and the noun ‘Mrs’ illustrates the separate roles of a sister and a wife, particularly as sister comes before wife chronologically, but the impact is on the correction, as a wife was seen as a more important role than a sister, which is similar to the separation of Desdemona’s roles as a daughter and a wife. Even though Blanche is a woman, and women were legally independent, she assigns her sister to a man because of the powerful societal regulations which she has been exposed and fallen victim
This is shown through many occasions in the novel as soldiers of war start objectifying women, stealing syrup from the factory and most terrifying, torturing other human beings, as shown through the firebombing of Dresden. Billy says, “There was a fire-storm out there. Dresden was one big flame. The one flame ate everything organic, everything that would burn” (178). Billy describes Dresden as, “looking like the moon” (179).
… Before moving away, he looked at Cecil and raised his foot, kicking him several times in the head to release his hateful venom” (108). Boll weevil is similar to war, as they both typically harm people for a hateful cause. Boll weevil kicks Cecil several times after he kills him, to show his hate toward him for not giving the money. Likewise, war is hateful because many soliders go out to fight, filled with hate, to fight for a one-sided cause. Both reprocussions as a result of Boll weevil’s actions, and war,
Nurse Ratched runs over and pushing through the crowd of people blocking the door. She yells and shoves people until finally she can see what has happened. I weave my way up to the doorway until I too can see everything going on. Billy is holding a piece of blood covered glass and laying on the floor covered in his own blood. It appear he has cut his throat, and died.
The house realized something was off so a voice was let off. “The house tried to save itself Doors sprang tightly shut, but the windows were broken by the heat and the wind blew and sucked upon the fire……. The house gave ground as the fire in ten billion angry sparks moved with flaming ease from room to room and then up the stairs. While scurrying water rats squeaked from the walls, pistoled their water, and ran for more. And the wall sprays let down showers of mechanical rain.
Juliet’s relationship with her dad is slim to none and has Mr. Capulet guessing what she is like and he makes all decisions for her without even knowing what's going on in her life. Mr. Capulet is the most responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death because he didn't respect Juliet’s thoughts , he was selfish, and he kept the feud going between the families. Social status. That's all Mr. Capulet was thinking about when he arranged the marriage between Juliet and Paris. When the two families were on good terms with the Prince Mr. Capulet thought “She hath not seen the change of fourteen years, Let two more summers wither in their pride, pass by Ere we may think her ripe to be a bride.” When the Prince is
He as the Neanderthal like brute, who uses violence and intimidation to obtain dominion over Stella and in one scene he shouts “Every man is a King! — And I am the king around here, so don’t you forget it” (Kazan, A Streetcar Named Desire) after breaking dishes in an effort to show he has control. These scenes are intended to show the weakness of Blanche and Stella, whose emotions are dictated by Stanley’s actions, but as the “Stella” scene revealed to us earlier in the film Stanley needs Stella far more then she does him. Blanche has created the faux reality of being a demure southern belle, who is utterly dependent on the whims of those around
This statement could offer insight as to why Stanley not only beats Stella, but also rapes Blanche at the end of the play. These actions confirm Stanley’s alpha male status. Stanley does not only take out his actions physically on Blanche and Stella, as he also postures himself in an aggressive manner and often becomes verbally aggressive. An example of this posturing appears when Williams gives the stage direction of, “Stanley stalks fiercely through the portieres into the bedroom. He crosses to the small white radio and snatches it off the table.

Then Beowolf dove in after the other serpents descended into the depths, but he was snatched up as he neared the bottom by the She-troll. Crashing through the ceiling of her hovel he was greeted by a series of attacks meant to gorge his eyes out. As the battle raged on blood from both adversaries seeped up to the surface, discouraging the waiting men above that their contender was alive. Far below the decisive blow was struck from a magical sword, the head of the She-troll rolled to a stop inform of her son granting her one last look at her son before death tighten its grasp upon
They show complete disregard in the feelings of the black folks who are forced into slavery, forced into selling their loved ones and their children. They are able, as Prince says, to “make their remarks upon us aloud, without regard to our grief” (11). These fears are exactly what Linda Brent feels when she becomes pregnant. She realizes that having a child with Mr. Sands would bring more abuse from Dr. Flint to both her and her child, and when her first born, Benny is born, she explains that “I had often prayed for death; but now I did not want to die, unless my child could die too” (Jacobs 199). She would rather that her child die than live in bondage, especially under the watchful and revengeful eye of Dr. Flint.
She never wanted to do what she was told by people she didn 't fully respect. She puts up the fight of her life to Aunt Alexandera because she does not want to become a lady. She does everything she can to stay away from her for a while, then she just tries to stay away from it. Atticus, Scout’s father, commented that he thought that he would have more problems with Scout, because of her fighting spunky nature, than with Jem, her older brother (120). She also would go to the court case, after her father deliberately told them to not go to town.
