Nunkie was constantly on Tea Cakes toes and almost throwing herself at him. Janie describes how she noticed Tea Cake not fighting her off as much as she expected. She could have gotten scared hat he was intrigued by Nunkie. The idiom that her fear was growing into tree shows that she was only a little nervous at first but once she watched closely, she realized that she should be worried about Tea Cakes loyalty. Tea Cake not fending Nunkie off as much as Janie expected could actually mean that Janie hoped Tea Cake would avoid contact with any other woman while she was dating him.
Killicks provides Janie a want and a need to seek more fulfilling life. Starks provides Janie with this fulfilling life, but disables Janie to recognize and embrace her true self. Tea Cake provides Janie with the ability to find her voice, yet he, like Killicks and Starks, subjects her to a male-domineering nature. Each man provides Janie with new horizons, and each of those horizons provide her with the opportunity to re-invent herself. Although, as Toni Morrison states, Janie "had nothing to fall back on" and found herself to be alone, she has found a new connection to life, namely, one that does not center around a
Her lies are less a thought of her own character and more a reflection of her husband’s surroundings .She does feel the need to keep up her self –respect, while satisfying her own needs. Again, her lies established the fact that how stressed she is by the opinions of her husband. The patriarchal setup of the play and gender roles are being broken as she is destroying the strict rules and by deciding to go out of family. She says that Torvald stops her from eating macaroons as they will destroy her teeth as well as her beauty, she still eats the macaroons. The limitations didn’t stop her from satisfying her own pleasures and she refused to obey through harmless actions showing that she strongly desires independence, but is too afraid to raise her own voice.
When the readers are first introduced to Daisy Buchanan, Nick describes her wearing a white dress and “...laughed, an absurd, charming little laugh” (Fitzgerald 80). When you think about the word charming, what do you think of? At first maybe sweet, kind-hearted, and other admirable adjectives because those are the characteristics of a prince charming. Daisy’s charm is the complete opposite. She uses it to get what she wants which is why she tricks the reader sto think that she’s still in love with him when in reality it’s he’s money, like how she cried into Gatsby’s beautiful shirts (Fitzgerald 92).
The answers to her prayers came in the form of Tea Cake, a young man twelve years her junior who was a little infamous amongst the townspeople for his mischievous antics. Tea Cake loves Janie genuinely, and doesn’t try to keep her from being who she wants to be. Although he dies before he and Janie are able to spend many years together, marrying him has an effect on Janie that causes her to forget her past grievances, and consider herself as an independent person like she always hoped to be. After Tea Cake, Janie is a free woman in that she is no longer under the oppressive restraints that she once allowed to hold her back from a life she considers worth living. The exploration of gender roles and the plight of women in Hurston’s novel continues to be relevant in today’s world, despite the fact that Their Eyes Were Watching God is now 79 years old.
An example is how buttercup and westley fall in love. In the book Buttercup and Westley insult one another and disagree on who is considered to be smart. Buttercup is not treated like she is an intelligent girl by Westley and she treats him in the same manner. The movie doesn't focus as much on Westley and Buttercup taunting each other as the first scenes of the film revolve around Buttercup and Westley love for one another . Within the first chapter of the book, the Countess and Count arrive at Buttercup's family farm.
Dee’s hatred of the old fashioned, tattered house is further confirmed by the narrator; “Why don’t you do a dance in the ashes? I’d wanted to ask her” (Walker, 316). To commodify something is to attach a price tag to it. Dee, although has little interest in the labour involved in creating the quilts, or concerned with the butterchurn as an ancient family heirloom, only becomes infatuated with the items because they are “priceless” entities (Walker, 320). Dee’s way of valuing the objects is contrasted to that of her mother and Maggie’s.
In “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” Katrina Van Tassel was never described to have feelings for Ichabod, but did lead him on with her coquettish mannerisms. In “The Pride of the Village,” the military man had conflicting emotions for the woman, but he primarily wanted to seduce her. In addition, ‘the pride of the village’ and Ichabod Crane’s loves left them for someone else, with Katrina marrying Brom and the military man courting the little village maid. Overall, Ichabod and the nameless woman were interested in similar people and Katrina Van Tassel and the military man acted in similar

So she didn't really care about those people, but as Esperanza had to live the lifestyle of fear for deportation, she felt bad for the people who were deported. To sum it all up, Esperanza went from riches to rags, bratty to well behaved, and from not working at all to working very hard thanks to her experiences throughout the book. Looks like being poor was more beneficial than being rich. I think kids nowadays could learn a thing or two from Esperanza about working hard, not having an attitude, and respecting/ helping people not as wealthy as
