"Hi, Slim," she said… "Hi, Good-lookin '." (Curley’s wife and Slim Chapter 2). This description of Curley’s wife that Steinbeck introduced allows the reader to understand that Curley’s wife is not faithful to her husband, she chooses to be bad. Considering the fact that Curley’s wife has the strength and power to roam around flirting with men, shows that she is not faithful to Curley. She is choosing to be bad by leading herself astray and flirting with men she should not have been flirting with.
In Isaac Bashevis Singer's Gimpel the Fool, Gimpel chooses to be naive to those who betray him, especially his wife, Elka, who cheats on him on multiple occasions. Gimpel is deceived daily by all the passer-bys in town, and is even tricked into marrying a “whore” against his better judgement. Elka, his wife, “[bore] a bastard” and Gimpel was fully aware of it, but allowed himself to become naive to this fact, and loved Elka and the child nonetheless. When Gimpel finds “a man’s form…in [his] place…laying next to Elka,” he goes to the Rabbi who tells him to go divorce her, but Gimpel naively convinces himself he simply saw a “shadow.” Later on, people continue to tell Gimpel that his “children” are not his, but he heeds his apprentice’s advice by “ignor[ing] it (the claims) as [he] ignore[d] the cold of last winter.” After the apprentice gives Gimpel this advice, Gimpel finds “the apprentice lying down beside
Bundy fell madly in love with a woman named Stephanie Brooks. Brooks would ultimately reject Bundy thus causing resentment and ill feelings towards women with similar physical attributes. Bundy also expressed resentment towards women, in particular his mother due to lies she constructed about Ted’s parental lineage (Ted Bundy). Bundy’s motivation for killing falls underneath a combination of two perspectives: frustration – aggression model and general strain theory. Bundy falls into the frustration – aggression model of killer for a handful
Through out the two films, Juror 3 and Abigail Williams are both motivated my their own personal desires and dislikes. Both of them go about the film similarly, making threats towards the other characters. We hear Juror 3 tell Juror 8 he will kill him in a fit of rage, without any real intention behind his words. This is meant to intimate Juror 8 however only succeeds in making Juror 3 look foolish. Whilst Juror 3 's threats are empty, Abigail 's are not.
Although it may have seemed as though this woman was in good spirits all she was trying to to was seem enticing to the white men because this was her job. She would never follow through with the persona she gives off, that being a nude sex symbol for the men because she was afraid and disgusted. The woman can be compared to the narrator in several ways, one way being that she is at the bottom of society as he is. The narrator's grandfather left him with a word of advice as he died: ‘I want you to overcome ‘em with yeses, undermine ‘em with grins, agree ‘em to death and destruction, let ‘em swoller you till they vomit or bust wide open,’ and the narrator takes this advice and continues to say yes when in reality are no’s just as the woman does. Throughout the short story, Ellison reveals aspects of inequality within this time period.
Overall, Hedda’s psychology shows her as a woman seeking power, not womanhood. Her manipulative ways tricked Lovborg into drinking again and committing suicide, and tricked her husband about why she burned Lovborg’s manuscript. She had an evil personality, and was very good at conjuring answers, but never offering
It is nonsensical to think that this woman would faint at the mere idea of blood after she so willingly pushed her husband to murder Duncan, it is obvious that this faint was merely a distraction from her husband’s lack of explanation as to why he murdered the guards. Her ability to use the misogynistic feminine ideology against the men in the play is a strength commonly overlooked by most readers and audience members alike. Manipulation: Her Fell Purpose Lady Macbeth can be placed somewhat in the role of the “trickster” in these moments of manipulation. A trickster is a character that exhibits a large degree of intellect, using their role in society to play tricks or manipulate those above them. Lady Macbeth uses her role as a woman to influence
The image portrayal of women in this film is a way for the people in our society to see women as not having good standards. As when Waldo is first introduced to the film Darla instantly started gazing after him for being the rich, clean cut young man. Also Boys see girls as a scapegoat when it comes to their problems such as the scene when the club house burned down, and Alfalfa almost lost his best friend he says, “it all happened because I liked a girl” but it was really nothing to do with Darla that caused all of those events to happen it came from him not telling the truth and trying to hide her. One can also see the ideal role a woman should play in society. For instance, after the race Spanky did not expect Darla to be the one that helped them or be the one under the helmet.
For some people it means getting in with the wrong crowd, as longs as it means they are accepted. For Mayella Ewell that meant trying to be loved by a man she didn’t love. “She was as sad, I thought, as what Jem called a mixed child: white people wouldn’t have anything to do with her because she lived among pigs; Negros wouldn’t have anything to do with her because she was white” (To Kill A Mockingbird pg 256). Mayella seems to be an outcast to everyone, including her own family. Tom testifies that her father shouted profanities at her as he made an escape.
' We killed him openly, ' Pedro Vicario said, 'but we 're innocent ' (Márquez, 49). Women were robbed of this criminal dismissal and instead pressured to find a man whom was socially worthy to provide for them. " 'She confessed to me that he 'd managed to impress her, but for reasons opposite those of love. 'I detested conceited men, and I 'd never seen one so stuck-up, ' she told me..." (Márquez, 29). Society told women and men alike to marry despite their actual feelings because love had no true value over tangible items.
Quite the scandal. Rumors flew. Some said the boy had seduced her, and then after the act the princess had realized she could not return, causing her to flee with the one man who would not have any connections with her kingdom, freeing her from social suicide. Others remarked how she had always been a conniving girl, her kindness a facade for her nefarious activities, such as the coven of witches she had started a few years back. Other outrageous
