She drinks and lie’s because of her past, with her consciously knowing that she is responsible for the death of allan, and also being responsible for being fired as a teacher; she has to find a way to cope with everything going on in her head. Blanche’s way of coping is lying, her lying becomes part of her reality. “Blanches part in her husband 's death is neither gentile nor loving.” (Phillip 305) She Feels guilty for her actions, but there is little remorse shown from blanche. She feels terrible for judging but knows its irreversible so she lives with it. With the Character traits such as Blanches, she realizes her mistake but will not openly admit to them out in the public eye.
The name Serena Joy is really misleading as her character is the complete opposite of those two words. “However, neither Judd or Waterford was married to a woman who was or had ever been known as “Pam” or as “Serena Joy.” suggests that Serena Joy is a psuedoname created by the Offred. Serena Joy is the woman of the house, the second in command, she controls all the handmaid (and others) life in the Commanders house. She was once an active speaker for “the sanctity of home, and how women should stay home.” (83). But when the Gilead was made and she was forced to stay home “She stays in her home, but it does not seem to agree with her.” (84).
Finding work down south the men are quickly introduced to Candy, an old man who lost his hand, Slim, a skilled ranch hand, Curley, the boss's son who is “handy”, and Crooks, an African American stable buck. George and Slim are quick to start a friendship and George is comfortable with sharing secrets with him. Soon, conflicts arise with Curley, Curley’s wife and Lennie. At this time many individuals are being trapped in a life they feel is inferior. Steinbeck uses the characters of Crook, Curley’s wife, and Lennie to show to that oppression can lead to great suffering and discrimination.
These actions have consequences, just like John said, “If you exploit people they become less likely to cooperate with you voluntarily” (PsychologyToday). We can relate this to “A Good Man is Hard to Find” because that is exactly what the grandmother did to her son Bailey. Bailey did not pay much attention to his mother because he already knew how manipulative and selfish she could be. The only reason why he did everything he did was for his kids. The grandmother would use the kids as targets to get what she wanted, because she knew Bailey would listen to them and not
Notwithstanding, he has had controversy with almost everyone on the ranch. He abused Lennie, a mentally disabled man, he publicly exposes his and his wife’s sexual lives, and he treats his wife as if she is his slave. Moreover, the actions Curley has done are corrupt, but they are not solely because he is an abominable person. An infrequent amount of readers will look at Curley’s actions and have sympathy for him, but Curley has reasons for his mistakes. Nevertheless, Curley is a disastrous man due to the way he grew up being an only child, he is astoundingly short, his father is a wealthy ranch owner, and he grew up in a racist and sexist community.
“You’re the Misfit! I recognized you at once!” (O’Connor 477). Instead of staying quiet like most people would when confronted by a dangerous person on the loose, she tries to charm the Misfit and ease her way out of danger. “I know that you’re a good man, you don’t look a bit like you have common blood, I know you must come from nice people” (O’Connor 477) it is evident that she is definitely responsible for her family’s death in a way. To begin, if she would have never screamed the Misfits name when she noticed him, he would not have seen them and felt like he had to kill the entire family and they might have gotten away.
I thought he was a very nice gentleman. Soft-spoken. I thought so right up to the moment I cut his throat.” (275). Showing how Perry did not have anything against the Clutters, he just felt anger and resentment from his past life he lashed out on the first people there. Many people feel pressure to fit in, however when they felt hopeless to ever be accepted as normal, they turn to crime as revenge.
He now accepts his fate of being lonely and an outcast stuck on this ranch. Once Curley’s wife came into Crooks’ room, all the positive outlook and the dream faded away. She picked out his weakness and forced Crooks to submit to her will. After constantly having everyone put him down because of his race, he no longer believes in himself; his new hope extinguishes easily by her. Also, it barely takes any time for him to back out.
Now an orphan is someone who lost one, usually both of their parents. The attorney is clearly using the guy being an orphan as leverage in the trial they are convinced to win. Appeal to Pity uses emotions to basically control the way an audience reacts to certain situations. In this case the attorney wants the jury to feel sorry about the guy who just “lost” his mother because he is an orphan. Anyone that is an orphan more than likely won’t commit murder.
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck is a story about two best friends named Lennie Small and George Milton's small adventure on a ranch. While on the ranch they encounter came to face new people and small conflicts. They also learn about the other characters dreams, while they add on to their own. As the story progresses readers learn that George and Lennie have a close bond, but in certain situations Lennie gets George into serious trouble representing Lennie as a burden. George did the right thing when he killed Lennie because Lennie’s a danger to others, George was showing compassion, and Lennie’s a danger to himself.
Gradually as, Tom lives his life he see how his parents’ approval came with a cost. When Tom finally had it with himself for killing his sister by accident, he thought of committing suicide, but the thought of,” ….Liza’s disapproval. She could make anyone suffer if she disapproved” (Steinbeck 408). Just the thought of his mother reminds him of the days how his mother can disapprove of him causing him great pain. The same pain that it took him to get an approval from her is the pain that he has to face with the consequences of his actions.
The women sensed this and therefore withheld information that would be vital in proving Mrs. Wright’s guilt in the murder of her husband. Had the men truly cared about what the women had found, perhaps the women would have shed light on their findings. The women are the rightful owners of the reader’s sympathy because they had often felt what Mrs. Wright had, the men had wrongfully acted in disrespect, and the women were written off as unhelpful before they ever had a chance to help. Because of the feelings of the women and the actions of the men, this case would grow cold and justice would not be
This attitude is especially prevalent in Candaules in the story. He persuades Gyges, who was quite hesitant, to view his wife while she is naked by essentially telling him that no harm could possibly come to him from either him or his wife. He was so confident in his power and he thought himself so far above his wife that he wasn’t even slightly concerned of any sort of consequence coming from the situation. It’s a dismal trait that was sadly prevalent in a lot of powerful men of this time. Now, did Candaules necessarily deserve to die because he violated his wife if this were just an isolated incident?
Suicide over all is bad, terrifying. Someone that is treated so badly wants to commit suicide. Suicide is a choice, think about it. People treated so badly or bullied think about killing themselves. I don’t think they realize how sad and heart-breaking suicide is.
The first reason is because the book is may be lengthy to some and not lengthy to others. For me, the book went by relatively quick. For readers who enjoyed the book, there is good news due to the book being a part of a series. Meaning that the fun does not have to end at just Wild Seed. Some of the themes within may only affect women or men such as gendered identities or people of color such as colonialism or race, but it is a read that can educate many.
