The Ideal Friendship The friendship between Adele Ratigonlle and Edna Pontellier is perhaps one of the purest relationships in The Awakening. Kate Chopin places their relationship as an important factor to the story and to Enda’s character. The relationship between the two survives into the end of the book despite Enda and Adele being displayed as near opposites by that point. Adele is a happy, organized, house wife who enjoys her children and finds purpose in this lifestyle. Edna is juxtaposed as depressed, impulsive, and longs for independence as well as freedom from the responsibilities of her normal life.
The main character's journey aligns with the archetypal hero's journey in my book because they are the same character. Momma in the book resembles mother archetype character. Because of Mommas kind heartedness she has become the mother figure to a few relatives and also helped others in need no matter the skin colour. For example in the book, Momma when talking to a white dentist she says, "'When you come to borrow my money you didn't have to beg. You asked me, and I lent it."'
Elizabeth had many small milestones leading up to her major goal. She achieved each and every one of them which is what made her such an important leading figure in the history of women 's rights. I think that women today have the ability to be exactly who or what they want to be thanks to Elizabeth. According to most people during Elizabeth’s lifetime, not much was really expected from women, and many of them were content with those thoughts. Elizabeth (not working alone) was a huge part of what
Grandfather’s death helped Mattie become more independent and more of an adult, so his death wasn't all bad. From Mattie’s response to grandfather's death I can learn that life isn’t always easy. Also, when something doesn’t go your way in life don’t give up. Just like when Mattie’s grandfather died she didn't want it to go like that but it did anyway. “Dead?
The universal knowledge and strength of a mother can become, ironically, an element that provides difficulties in many relationships. The love between a mother and daughter is eternally enchanting and frustrating, invigorating and challenging. Mothers serve as a role model and example to their daughters, providing insight and guidance in every walk of life. Despite the stress many mother-daughter relationships endure, a mother’s advice is imperative. Through examining Amy Tan’s book The Joy Luck Club, Sandhya Shetty’s painting Mother and Daughter, and “Sonnets are full of love, and this is my tome” by Christina Rossetti, the power of a mother’s influence is evident.
Without determination, Annie would not have been able to achieve this miracle. Accomplishing teaching with success is troublesome without the determination to do so. In Act I of the play, Kate Keller, Helen’s mother, showed determination towards helping Helen. Helen struggled a great deal since the beginning of her life, and all Kate wanted was to help her daughter lead an average life like any other child; to do this, Kate needed determination. Kate’s motherly and concerned attributes gave her the ability and strength to support her daughter.
Her greatest inspiration was her grandmother. She liked her grandmother because she believed she was strong, hardworking, and kind. An example was when she took care of Melissa Hoebee's grandfather when he was very sick so that he would not go to a nursing home. Unfortunately, Melissa Hoebee was sad when her greatest inspiration passed away at 2009 and wrote a speech about her to say for her funeral. Her speech was a way for her to say goodbye to her grandmother.
Another thing the two stories have in common is that they’re both using dramatic Irony. At the beginning of the story the narrator says that “Mrs. Mallard was afflicted with a heart trouble,” so the woman’s friends were very careful about telling her the news. But instead of dying of depression, she died of happiness. Unlike the last story, the mood of “The Story of an Hour” is lighter and more positive relative to “The Interlopers.” Although there are two deaths in the story, it is mainly triumphant as the woman has finally been freed from the grasp of her husband, as she didn’t like
Marion Brown Expose proved in her lifetime that one doesn’t need to be arrogant and aggressive to show strength. Marion was a quiet spirit, but nevertheless, a very strong, dynamic, and effective spirit. She was the epitome of what a daughter, sister, wife, and mother should be. A prime example of her excellent character was the care of her elderly mother, which we affectionately called Mrs. Brown, until her transition. Marion wasn’t just a sister-in-law; she was our sister too.
The grandmother grew in that moment of death more than she ever did in the little parts that we read about her life, and she dies in peace. Her actions may have even changed the Misfit too. At the end, he says “she would have been a good woman if he 'd been there all her life to shoot her.” (366). This line confused me the first time reading it, but the second time around it made more sense. The grandmother felt redeemed by confronting the “evil” in the Misfit and finding the capability within herself to
