This is because Mayella’s word will be taken over his because the people of Maycomb would believe a white woman’s sworn testimony over that of a black man, even if it was not credible. They will believe the worst from an African American. Considering this, Tom fled the
Greed in this play is able to take an upright man and drag him to the lowest point and destroy everything that he has dedicated all his time to achieving. It shows that the most destructive force to a person’s goals can be themselves and not knowing when enough is enough. Unknown to this, the tragic hero Macbeth, like many people today, becomes enticed by the trap of wealth, power, and selfish ambition. His first problem is that he craves to have something that is not rightfully his from the person who actually deserves it. Greed first may cause someone to commit one sin, but it soon creates a snowball effect of many changes to a person's actions and character.
Society determines what is civilized and what is barbaric and how it uses its morals, or lack thereof, to determine how individuals should live. Unfortunately, it affects how people view others and how they judge themself. In The Kite Runner, Amir sees himself as barbaric because of how he is seen. On page 77, Amir thinks, “ I ran because I was a coward.” He knows what Baba, or Rahim Kahn, or how any Afghan would treat him or what they would call him if they had seen him run away from Hassan being raped. He almost accepts that he is in the wrong and should be ridiculed.
Anita from the start wanted to embrace America and the opportunity that it appeared to offer, however the social injustices only push her away from wanting and conforming the ‘American way’ due to the lack of respect and possibility. Anita even projects some racist tendencies towards the other side after Bernardo is murdered; she orders Maria to stay away from Tony, she says, “A boy like that who’d kill your brother; forget that boy and find another. One of your own kind, stick to your own kind, a boy like that will give you sorrow; you’ll meet another boy tomorrow.” The racism comes through on both sides of the equation and is a key reason as to why the gangs are so violent with one
She clashes back with Torvald with saying, “” The whole reason for my existence was to preform tricks for you, Torvald. But that’s what you wanted.You and Papa have committed a great sin against me It is your fault that I have made nothing of my life.”” (Isben, 385). With this she is blaming him that he did not treat her the way she needed to be and that their marriage was a lie in the way she had to act for him. Torvald becomes even angrier and says something that would tear Nora to her breaking point. He comments, “” But you will not be allowed to raise the children.
In response, Cordelia answers of nothing, beginning a string of repetition of the word “nothing” each with various syntax and punctuation to show the tension building between the father and daughter relationship. In addition, the negative connotation of “nothing” repeated several times and the breakdown of the language foreshadows a breakdown of the family. As she reasons about her answer, Cordelia also expresses her compassion towards her father through a hyperbole by stating, “Unhappy that I am, I cannot heave my heart into my mouth” (Lear 1.1.93-94). Justifying her response, Cordelia expresses that her love towards him cannot be properly expressed as she contrasts how he has “begot [her], fed [her], loved [her]” and in return she “obeyed [him], loved [him], and most honored [him]” to show that she loves her fathers as much as their relationship requires (Lear 1.1.99-101). Though she speaks from her heart, Lear ultimately rejects her argument, recognizing that she is not worthy of his wealth as expressed through his belittling tone.
By talking to Sister James alone, Father Flynn not only broke the rules but also seems suspicious. Father Flynn seems suspicious by talking to Sister James due to him taking time out of his day to go and try to convince her of his innocence. During the conversation between Father Flynn and Sister James, Father Flynn seems to threaten Sister James in a way: “You might lose your place as well” (Shanley 40). Father Flynn goes out of his way to convince Sister James of his innocence, which is very odd behavior considering she is at a lower position than himself. Father Flynn also goes and talks to Sister Aloysius against the
“O Fortune, Fortune! All men call thee fickle./If thou art fickle, what dost thou with him.” (3.5.60-61). Juliet questions how men are calling her fickle and dedicating her life and her fate. She is referencing how her father, and thus the feud, have decided that she is not to marry a Montague, and instead suitor. Like above, Juliet is clearly unsatisfied by the undertakings of her parents, as a result of the feud.

They both have dissimilar reasons for their depression, but have a single way of coping with it. Suzy’s depression is ignited by the fact her stern, cheat of a mother is having an affair with Mr. Fox—who has no acknowledgement of what could happen to others involved. Her mom’s uncaring tone used when hollering through the megaphone when it was time to eat and the book Suzy found, “The Very Troubled Child,” are clues to why she is uninterested in her mother; on top of it all, her father’s distance is what makes Suzy feel unwanted and isolated. Sam on the other hand is desolate, orphaned, and restrained. His parents are deceased and he travels from one home to another with only the pride of being a khaki scout, but not even that is enough to make him happy.
She during this scene,is described by Jordan who states, “She groped around in a waste-basket she had on her bed and pulled out the string of pearls”(pg 76). Tom tires to buy Daisy with material things, such as the pearls, but ultimately she detests the pearls since they signify her loveless marriage. Earlier on, we find out that Daisy hasn’t been happy with her own marriage, as she states, “Well, I’ve had a very bad time”
Hurston divulges in the deception of hopes and dreams through the recurrent symbol of the horizon. What one hopes for on the horizon is ultimately what deceives one. In Janie’s adolescence, she presumes that she loves Nanny, her grandmother and legal guardian, and that Nanny knew better for Janie’s welfare. However, during Janie’s newfound independence and self-discovery after a controlling marriage, she discovers her true feelings of Nanny: hate. She abominates Nanny because, “Nanny had taken the biggest thing God ever made, the horizon… and pinched it in to such a little bit of a thing that she could tie it around her granddaughter’s neck tight enough to choke her” (Hurston 89).
The term white privilege has become a bad term, just like the word feminism. Society has found a way to distort and change the definition of terms like these to avoid the actual issue that the term is bringing up. By definition feminism is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities, but the word has come to carry a negative connotation (Webster). Many who believe in the principle would not call themselves feminists or participate in trying to reach equality to avoid that connotation placed on them. Their silence only aids the continuation of inequality between men and women.
