According to the quote, Curley 's wife does not like her own husband! She was forced into marrying a guy she doesn 't truly love. Curly would abuse her, use her as bragging rights, and never spend time with his wife. Curley even had a glove filled with Vaseline so one of his hands could be soft for touching his wife. This is abusive because he talked about him and his wife’s sex life with the other ranchers.
She realizes exactly what her place in society and that there is no freedom with men, further cementing men as a different species. No matter what
One of the most interesting tings in Shakespeare is his presentation of strong women. Beatrice, Hero, and Juliet are strong women in their play. Beatrice with her strong opinion about not needing a husband, Hero for being strong she was falsely accused of, and Juliet for following her heart to be with Romeo. These women are brave for doing what they believe is right and having their mindset focused. From “Much Ado About Nothing”, Beatrice is a feisty, independent woman, seen by all those around her as such.
Abigail was willing to hurt anyone in her way to get what she wanted; to have Elizabeth Proctor dead and John Proctor all to herself. Dimmesdale was only thinking of what was best for him, which was to keep his secret to himself and not get a public punishment for his crime. Both characters first thought in any situation was himself/herself. They were willing to hurt the people the loved in order to save themselves and get what they wanted; a man she loved and to save himself from being publicly humiliated. These two characters both portrayed the characteristic of selfish, and in the end it hurt both of them even
Magdalene’s comparison parallels Milkman’s actions to how Macon II simply ruins the live of his tenants carelessly. Finally, Corinthians states that she and her sister will no longer create the artificial roses and allow milkman to benefit from their labor. This shows how her disdain for her brother motivates Magdalene to stand up for herself by cutting off a toxic relationship with her brother. It is also significant that the sisters create fake roses which symbolize the lack of love and false love within the dead household. And now that the production of fake roses has ceased so has the artificial love between her and her brother.
As it is demonstrated when Charles desired to burn down Tomas’ workshop, envisioning the destruction and harm he desired to cause towards Tomas. However, Charles ability to recognize his fatherly obligations makes him walk away, and assert his position as a “practical man” (52). Though Charles did not perform the violent action, it is arguably the agent’s irrational desires and intentions that depicts Charles’ mental instability. However, there is a sense of regret when Charles chooses to act rationally, because it makes him believe that he is selling his daughter to remain financial stable (49). Like Thanh, when Charles chooses to act submissive it is for the sake of survival.
“Mayella’s hostility which had subsided to grudging neutrality flared again ‘You makin’ fun o’ me agin, Mr. Finch’”(245). She believes that Atticus had been making fun of her because he treats her with great manners which she had never experienced before, since the she never socializes with the proper people of Maycomb. Yet, she not only lacks friends, she also has a shockingly distant relationship with her father. Mayella’s father care for her, rather he beats her and leaves her alone for days. This is displayed perfectly through, “Their relief check was far from enough to feed the family and there was strong suspicion that Papa drank it up anyway- he sometimes went off in the swamp for days and came home sick”(244).
Pearl watched the other children, but never tried to make friends. Because they could sense that something was off about her, children would occasionally gather around Pearl. In response, she would throw stones and scream at them, much to the discomfort of her mother, due to the fact that her exclamations sounded like a witch’s anathemas. To help with her loneliness, Pearl creates puppets out of random things such as stick, rags, or flowers. Black and aged pine trees served as Puritan elders and the ugliest weeds were their children.
We see that in the book Huxley wrote, “The director went suddenly pale, stopped struggling and stood, his hands on her wrists, staring down at her horrified. “Yes, a baby--and I was its mother.” She flung the obscenity into the outraged silence; then suddenly breaking away from him, ashamed, ashamed, covered her face with her hands, sobbing.” (Huxley, 151). In the quote above, Linda was speaking to the DHC and how he had gotten her pregnant as she told the whole world that she was a mother.
In fact, John was flirting with Abigail in the first act. John reprimands Elizabeth for playing God, when he does the same to the community. What makes John’s vicious and uncalled for assertion even more distasteful, is the fact that he says he should have “roared” Elizabeth down when she first accused him. Again, John seems to forget that he is the transgressor. His harsh behavior and tone towards Elizabeth almost makes it seem as if he is putting the blame on her, as if she was not suppose to confront him about adultery and just metaphorically be a doormat.
John condescendingly calls his wife “blessed little goose” (79) and “little girl” (83) presenting the soft yet disdainful terms of endearment meant solely for a child. His condescending and overbearing paternal behavior is further revealed when he dismisses her thoughts and belittles her imagination calling them “false and foolish fancy” (83). In addition to this, John forbids his wife from writing “until she (I) is well again” (76) despite her disagreement that “congenial work with excitement and change would do her (me) good” (76). He uses his status as a “physician of high standing” (76) to silence his wife’s impending opinion, establishing that “he is so wise” (82) and can be “trusted as a physician”
(11) Curley’s wife complains to Crooks, Lennie, and Candy about her husband, how he “Spends all his time sayin’ what he’s gonna do to guys he don’t like, and he don’t like nobody. Think I’m gonna stay in that two-by-four house and listen how Curley’s gonna lead with his left twict, and then bring in the ol’ right cross?” (78). Obviously, Curley’s wife did not marry Curley because she loves him, but most likely she may be running from someone or something in her life. The unsatisfied wife endures Curley just so she can live in
Excitement in Gram Gram is an extremely enthusiastic person which is definitely shown in the passage. There are certainly a couple ways you can tell. You can tell by her personality and her beliefs, and how the author portrays Gram’s beliefs in the story. It also shows how the two things are very alike.
Tension is created when two people have conflicting ideas/perspectives. This is displayed in the stories “The Elevator,” by William Sleator and “Abuela Invents the Zero,” by Judith Ortiz. Both authors portray how tension is created through the differences of perspective that their character. In the story , “The Elevator,” by William Sleator the author creates tension by creating different conflicting perspectives between the characters.
