As Hester is appointed for adultery and admits to it, she is completely honest and doesn’t lie and straight forward with the townspeople. Hester Prynne is portrayed as a sinful character in the text but in reality she is a kind, strong, humble character in depth. As a main character, Hester is illustrated by sin but her true color is actually being humble. In the real world people get looked down upon if they cheat or have an affair just as Hester did. As
She just believes that the country needs good politicians and she knows when somebody is good and when somebody is not. Her own way into politics happens rather by accident. For example is when she was boldly giving out her opinion and overrules a reporter who refers to Mr Schmidlapp as second-rate. In addition to that, she is dependable, intelligent, good-hearted, loyal and funny woman. She brightens up the screen with a lovely smile and creates a sometimes amusing, but always likeable character.
Atticus also says that she never indulges them like other nurses would. This proves she is strict because she does not spoil them and give them things they do not need. She also shows that she is strict because she hits Scout when Scout is being rude to Walter. She is strict because she is not afraid to punish them when she feels like they need to be punished. Her punishments are also very fair.
However, this name contradicts her personality. She is not uncertain about her life, not easily bored, and she is not the best example of obeying the Lord. This name is good for her because she can charm and sting. In chapter one, to Big Pat, she appears to be charming and respectable when she says things like “And for the record, I’m independent.” And “I’ll give you my number though. Maybe when I get off work tomorrow we can go out somewhere.
Without a doubt, Astrid is strong-willed as she solves in to her problems without faltering. In addition to being strong willed, Astrid is logical. One noteworthy point for support is that she is known for being smart. As stated by every child within the Fallout Alley Youth Zone, “Astrid the Genius” (Grant 91). The way others think of a person is an accurate way to determine the unique personality traits that person possesses because people are bad at determining their own traits due to personal bias.
She is a product of her circumstances throughout the course of The Handmaid’s Tale and remains passive in the face of oppression - in that sense, she is complicit in the perpetuation of all that Gilead represents. Offred provides an admission of guilt: "We lived, as usual, by ignoring. Ignoring isn’t the same as ignorance, you have to work at it" (66). All those who choose to “ignore” the cold hand of oppression and presume complacency are just as guilty of the result of that ignorance. But beyond base ignorance and submission to authority, Offred remains compliant even when outside of the line of direct danger – a display of her submission to the systemic oppression of Gilead.
Furthermore Desdemona exemplifies honesty in the way that no matter the situation she will end up being utmost honest and will not hold anything back. Desdemona throughout the entire play was always honest about only being true to the moor and no one else and had no reason to lie about it since she did not have an affair with Cassio. It can be shown how she is honest when she says, “ I am not merry but I do beguile the thing I am, by seeming otherwise” (2.1.1971). When she makes this statement she infers that she may not be perfect but why tries to stand up for any mistake she has made. Throughout the entire play Desdemona is always honest about being true to the moor and loving only him and is even honest about it not being easy to love this
June boatwright really stood out to me as i read this book because she reminded me of myself. She reminds me of myself because I am very aggressive and throughout the book she came to me as an aggressive person. She’s very straight-forward and emotionless. She doesn’t care how you feel or what’s wrong, she only cares about how it can affect her. She is some what selfish.
As Giorgio Armani once stated, “elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered.” Queen Esther from the Old Testament truly embodied what it means to make a positive impact on a community, despite not always being the center of attention. In the book Twelve Unlikely Heroes, John MacArthur retells her story and explains how she helped save her people through God’s power. Although she was a woman of true excellence, Esther’s existence and emotions were not directly stated because they were not the main point of her story. However, her mind was full of opinions, reactions, and ideas. Queen Esther’s elegance and respected position concealed her true thoughts about the events she found herself in, even though they were evident through
Zenobia turns against this not only vocally, but also physically: on more than one occasion, Priscilla is separated from the “pack” and Zenobia clings to Hollingsworth’s side. Priscilla doesn’t complain about this, though it’s obvious this upsets her because she cares deeply for Hollingsworth as well. Her silence is stark contrast to Zenobia’s outspoken personality. Zenobia makes a valiant attempt to be the perfect woman though; she allows Westervelt near Priscilla, and is unkind to her
