Sarah worked in the cookhouse. All of her children were sold except for one because she was considered a defect since she couldn’t talk. The reason all her children were sold because of Margaret who just wanted, “‘new furniture, new china dishes… things she didn’t even need”’ (Butler 95). Margaret finally saw how the slaves on the property felt when their kids are taken away from them. Margaret had twins, but they, ‘“died one after the other...she went kind of crazy’” (Butler 137).

As well, she prides herself on knowing people and being able to read them very easily, unlike her older sister Jane. As the novel progresses we get to see her flaws, her positive attributes and how she deals with discovering new things about herself. She hates Darcy for being so prideful, but then she begins to question if maybe she was just too prejudice. Aside from having this ability, so she thinks, to know people she also knew she was different than her society which plays a big role in how she sees herself. The society they live in pressures girls to get married for the status and the money.
Having the orders of staying in the house everyday must have drove her crazy, so she would sneak out once in awhile to interact with others. All of the ranchers know the rules of Curley’s Wife about how she has to stay inside everyday, so when she is wondering around the ranch talking to men and “looking” for Curley they call her a “tart”. Calling Curley’s wife “tart” is uncalled for because she didn’t do anything to them but try to talk to them so it’s being sexist because if a girl talks to a guy she automatically becomes a “tart”. The story quotes, “She got that eye goin’ all the time on everybody. I bet she even gives the stable buck the eye.
The Compensatory Narcissist often portrayed themselves to be self-confident individuals, in reality they are prone to be full of insecurities. They are inclined to make up for what was missing in their early part of life and are in constant need to fill the void they feel by creating a façade to feel superior and of self-worth due to their feelings of inferiority (Millon et al.,1996). They often seek romantic partners whom they think are ideal and constantly need to feel encourage emotionally and reassure of their worth within the relationship. With this in mind, they are predisposed to be motivated by recognition therefore, often target partners who seem vulnerable to find the adoration they need. In addition, they are prone to utilize tactics
The mistress is proud of her sister Claire, but this doesn’t stop the mistress from taking a few shots at Claire anyway. She admires Claire’s accomplishments and even looks to Claire for approval. Claire’s view of the relationship between the mistress and her married professor is accepting. Claire says, “Just go for it, sister. If you can unhinge a marriage, it’s ripe for unhinging, it would happen sooner or later, it might as well be you.” Ironically, Claire’s lack of judgment makes her the better sister.
Belicia husband left her when her children were very young, so Belicia had to work three jobs to provide Lola and Oscar food to eat and place to live. Belicia was a negative, loud mouth, abusive mother. She convinced Lola that Lola was ugly, stupid, and worthless. Belicia often screamed hit her children anywhere and in front of any one, with either the flip flop or the leather strap. If “Belicia was not at work, she was sleeping; Lola shopped, cooked, cleaned, took care of Oscar, and had the best grades in her class” (Diaz 56); nevertheless, Belicia complimented Lola.

Although she already possesses these values, she regains them while helping Mariane understand.
In addition, it helped to add a sense of togetherness in the short story, as it inadvertently revealed how much Jing’s mother actually loved her, despite her tough exterior. Also, the author was most likely trying to convey the idea that everyone has a separate dream of what they want to be when they are an adult. A parent cannot force their child to pursue a career that they do not want to be in because excessively forcing a child to follow a certain life will only make them not enjoy their future; in addition, it could also lead to them caring less about their career, eventually possibly costing them their job. To conclude, I liked the writing style of this short story because while it was depressing at times, it was never fully boring and it had a certain theme of the relationships within families that gave the

The first instance of this abuse is seen within the readers first meeting of Maggie. “As his sister continued her lamentations, he suddenly swore and struck her. …As she slowly retreated her brother advanced dealing her cuffs” (Crane 8). This attack was only in response to Maggie crying due to the possibility that their mother would become violent toward all of the children in response to Jimmie’s fighting.
Her innate sensitivity allowed her to be a non-conformist and see opportunities that allowed her to grow and love herself. In her article, “Me the overly sensitive child” Lamott feels that although she did not always see the advantages that her thin skin provided her, she was eventually able to use it to her advantage and gain “wisdom and self-knowledge” because of it (Web). My point in this paragraph is that Lamott used her innate sensitivity to experience everything that life had to offer and grew as a person because of it. I would back up her opportunity seeking with her participation in the women’s rights movement which allowed her to develop standards about how she would allow herself to be treated, her success in the corporate world, her openness to friendship, her time in the wilderness, and in her willingness to

It is her belief that love makes people healthier, makes them grow better and stay better attuned to others. Thus it stands that not achieving enough love can be detrimental to one. In example, the women of Bell’s text on some level all wished for relationships and all seemed to want sex yes, but something deeper as well. Yet, despite what they wanted they were stopped by the decisions of the mind, the fear it had picked up of these relationships.
