Sula makes a huge tragedy that may have compromised their friendship and the entire town’s relationship or does it. Sula was written by Toni Morrison. A good mother is nurturing care for the child and love, but it is not necessarily giving birth. Being a good mother is nurturing care for a child. First of all, the meaning of a good mother from the book Sula is nurturing care for the child.
Put me down easy, Janie, Ah’m a cracked plate” (Hurston 20). Nanny is successfully able to convince her granddaughter through her own traumatic experiences and make her feel “sympathy” as she tells Janie she doesn’t want her life to be spoiled like her own life was. At first, Janie refuses to marry Logan Killicks. Nanny being the older one, defends herself by saying “put me down easy” since she can no longer care for Janie and only her wish is for Janie to get married and be protected from the dangers she and her own daughter faced. By calling herself a “cracked plate” Nanny further elucidates that she went through many hardships in her own life and wants to do the right thing for her granddaughter by
In Beloved, Morrison depicts the involuntary separation of a mom and baby via Sethe’s dating with her mom and her kinship with her daughter, Beloved. In Beloved, the mother is not depicted as wonderful, but she shows unconditional love for her kids, regularly in pretty a provocative way. Morrison’s authorship elucidates the conditions of motherhood displaying how black girls’s lifestyles is warped through severing conditions of slavery. In this novel, it turns into apparent how in a patriarchal society a lady can feel responsible whilst deciding on hobbies, profession and self-improvement earlier than motherhood. The sacrifice that has to be made by means of a mother is evident and natural, but equality in a courting method shared obligation and with that, the sacrifices are less on both component.
Behind the Scene with Desdemona While people believe Desdemona can be portrayed in a variety of ways from a rash young woman to an independent, free-thinking woman who stands out for the time-period, I cannot wrap my head around her being anything less than a intensely independent, strong character. The film version of Othello inspired me to portray Desdemona as a strong woman with undying loyalty to her husband. Considering the film adaptation paired with the original storyline, I envision Desdemona as a fiercely strong female character. While I did not completely agree with the portrayal of Desdemona in the film, I felt it was a good foundation to start my own interpretation. While performing our adaptation of Act 5, Scene 2 to a modern audience, I played the part of Desdemona and I did so with three main points in mind.
She is shown to be young, wide-eyes through her description “Abigail Williams, seventeen- a strikingly beautiful girl.” (8) Thus Abigail has idealized her entire relationship with John Proctor instead of seeing it for what it truly was, an affair that took place because Proctor, a bit lonely, felt distant from his wife and consequently turned to Abigail for warmth, she see’s the two of them as being in love and the only thing keeping them apart is John Proctors wife, Goody Proctor. This is portrayed quite clearly in Abigail's motivation throughout the play as she is constantly trying to eliminate Goody Proctor. This is seen in the Act I when it is revealed by Betty Parris that it was Abigail who was attempting to kill Goody Proctor when the girls were dancing in the woods, all in attempt to be with John Proctor "You did, you did! You drank a charm to kill John Proctor’s wife! You drank a charm to kill Goody Proctor!"
She just started walking at the age of two and only says a few words. All of the behaviors Ms. Carter is displaying is that of a mother in Reactive Depression. She responds to all of her troubles by giving up rather than fighting to make things better for her children. She is hopeless and always in a state of depression. The maltreatment is mild and not as severe, but this family would be difficult to treat.
In the end, Vanessa ends up raising the child as a single mother. Since we see two different broken families, it’s easily assessable that it’s not common to have the perfect traditional family. Nontraditional families can be just as happy, if not even more. Caring, loving, and supporting one another doesn’t mean it has to come from the perfect idea of a family. A strong sense of love is apparent towards the end of the film.

This resulted in the alimentation from her family and ancestral roots. In contrast to that Maggie knows no other world but the one she basically came from. Maggie was not that much educated, and she could hardly read, but she adopted things, which were been taught her and she accepted the conditions of her protected life without any question. Maggie has disadvantaged her own self-fulfillment.
The book mentions how she barely ate because she only had enough food to provide for her baby at the time. There were little physical attributes given about the mother in the novel. Mother shows off her emotional characteristics throughout Act I by being frustrated, timid, determined, strong, calm, and easy-going. The traits of mother are balanced enough to be both positive and negative
This statement also shows Atticus’s trust in her raising his kids right, which is another reason why she is a good mother figure. Compared to Calpurnia, Aunt Alexandra is not a good mother figure. For one, she thinks very little of Scout’s way of dress and mannerisms. Scout states at one point, “It was plain
Taylor comes from a nontraditional family. She was raised by her mother, who worked long hours as a housekeeper to support Taylor and herself. Her father, Foster Greer, left her mother when he found out that her mother was pregnant. Her mother doesn 't mind that Foster left; in fact, she often tells Taylor that "trading Foster for [you] was the best deal this side of the Jackson Purchase." As Taylor matures and is exposed to horrible things that fathers can say and do to children, she feels quite lucky to have grown up without a father.
This is a process in which the parents look to the children for nurture and support (Anderson & Sabatelli, 2011). While the mother is doing her own things the children seem to take control and take care of each other and sometimes even their
