She made him scared and obedient because she fiercely said "you know what I could do" , making fear for his life. This made Crooks reply to Curley's wife as if she was a higher status than him and all he replies is "yes ma'am". Its steadfast humanity, its literacy, its passionate belief in education, its faith that history teaches invaluable lessons and its strong, emotionally grounded performances: There are enough things to admire about “The Great Debaters,” the heavily fictionalized true story of The Little Debate Team That Could, that your impulse is to forgive the movie its shortcomings. The second film directed by Denzel Washington, “The Great Debaters” may not aspire to be more than inspirational pop entertainment in the Oprah Winfrey mode (Ms. Winfrey is one of its producers), but unlike so many films of its ilk, it doesn’t insult your intelligence. And it reminds you that social history airbrushed for the screen by Hollywood is preferable to none at all.
Relentless and obedient is what makes Macbeth who she is. She will do everything in her power for her husband to gain the same status she has and “Yet do I fear thy nature/It is too full o’th’ milk of human kindness/ To catch the nearest way. Thou wouldst be great,/Art not without ambition, but without/ The illness should attend it” (1.1.15-20). This soliloquy is written about the ambition of her intentions. She knows her husband isn’t capable of violence and crime to achieve what he wants so she explains that he is to soft-hearted.
Aylmer undoubtedly loves his wife and admires her beauty at first. The birthmark like the garden possess a charm that at first allures others to recognize the women’s beauty. But overtime her one flaw the birthmark drives him to insanity which consumes him. This is very different from the character of Dr. Rappacinni who never really shows any love towards his daughter. Aylmer reassures Georgiana that he can rid her of this fatal flaw place by nature; “I feel myself fully competent to render this dear cheek as faultless as its fellow; and then, most beloved, what will by my triumph when I shall have corrected what Nature left imperfect in her fairest work” (Meyer, 401)!
Dubose’s camellias on purpose. Even though this may seem reckless and out of resentment, it really was to support his father and his views after Mrs. Dubose made fun of Atticus in front of Jem: “Not only a Finch waiting tables but one in the courthouse lawing for niggers!” (Lee 135) This quote causes Jem’s fit of wrath and also gets him in trouble with his father and results in him having to read to Mrs. Dubose as punishment. Ironically, however, Atticus tells Jem that regardless of what Mrs. Dubose said about him that she was the bravest woman he knew: “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do” (Lee
In the text it says,“I-I apologized already.’ Jeremy seemed relieved that I had spoken.‘She d-did Pa. R-right ‘fore y’all come, she did.” Jeremy’s actions in Strawberry show the reader that he is willing to not only willing to stand up for Stacey, but also his family. Although he knows he will get punished for engaging with them, he still protests because he is truly a good friend. On the other hand, T.J. is not willing to stand for neither Stacey, nor the Logans. This is shown when T.J. lets Stacey get in trouble for having cheat notes although they were actually T.J.’s and not Stacey’s. The author wrote,“ Well, Stacey didn 't see Miz Logan comin ' when he took them notes, and by the time he saw her it was too late to get rid of 'em.
There were rumors about Larry and his playboy nature, but Antonia choose to see the good in him and was even prepared to be married to a man who did not care as deeply for her as she believed. “The trouble with me was, Jim, I never could believe harm of anybody I loved” (5.1.189). Antonia says this to Jim as they are looking back on their lives as adolescents which proves how she learned from her previous experiences not to instantly be so trusting of everybody she meets. In a more positive sense, Antonia’s optimism enabled her to be accepting of what she had, and never wish for more. Unlike her acquisitive mother, Antonia was always content with her life on the farm and never felt it necessary to beg and want what other people have.
When her father expresses how good it is to see her and she was missed, she replies with the notion was that the only reason she is there was because of her sister Mona. This deeply hurts her father and Mirelle thinks, “My mother reached for my father’s hand. There are no limits to her compassion for that man” (Gay 349). Fabienne’s strength overrules
She cares for her master and does all that she can to make his life longer and happier. She acquiesces in the fact that slaves should not read and write. Like Mama in A Raisin in the Sun, she believes in God and his grace. She is conscious of what is right but the change in Rissa from the traditional mammy of the myth to the rebellious mother occurs when her son Hannibal is blinded by Hiram’s son Everett. Though she knows that her master has been all along a good man and a kind one, she is not able to forgive him.
He is generous, obedient, responsible, and honest. A broken young woman and her dangerous father threaten his life, but he has no harsh words for them,” (Iannone 243-278). Tom Robinson was never the evil that society thought he was and has to pay the greatest price for racism, his own life. His image was twisted by society because of his appearance, which causes the real evil in this situation to be the family who accused him and the citizens who sealed his
Both fathers, King Lear from King Lear and Larry cook from A Thousand Acres, believe that their daughters are mistreating them by leaving him out in the rain and refuse to admit that they are taking advantage of them. This then results in both fathers insulting their eldest daughters by pointing out how neither Goneril or Ginny cannot carry children and how they are ungrateful for everything their father gave him. Despite being thrown into the same situation, Goneril and Ginny act in a different manner from one another. For example, when Larry bellows his insults at Ginny, “You don’t have to drive me around any more, or cook the goddamned breakfast or clean the goddamned house...Or tell me what I can do and can’t do. You barren whore!...Just a dried-up whore bitch.”(181), she says nothing back at her father and just stands there in shock and listens “I admit that I was transfixed; yes, I thought…Spittle formed in the corners of his mouth, but if it flew, I didn’t feel it.
Throughout the work, supporting characters such as Moira comment on the two’s strange relationship. Its nature is truly revealed in this scene of supposed embarrassment, when instead of being shocked, Colin’s mother is warm and inviting. Even at this progressed stage in her son’s delusion, Colin’s mother has the ability to reform her son’s behavior. Instead of doing so, she encourages his abnormal behavior and asks, “Are you going all loopy” (Rendell 163)? It is this support coupled with a strange childhood that push Colin to blur the link between his human and animal
Although young she has a fierce grip on truth. This truth rarely compromises giving her a strong standard of what to live by. With this standard she faces life never relenting on what she believes to be right and fighting against anything she believes to be a lie. “I don’t know what you’re talkin’ bout but you better cut it out this red hot minute.” (83) These words were uttered by Scout in blind defense of her father. As her cousin begins to slander Atticus, Scout loses her temper and, despite not understanding the boy, defends Atticus without considering any facts.
