The men did not pay attention to any of their wives concerns and they would often let the woman know what they were saying was nonsense. The narrator 's tone when she states that “John laughs at me, of course, but one expects that in a marriage” would cause one to think that the way they were treated, like a child, was normal for this time period (Perkins 768). Also, the men didn’t want the women working too hard. One might think this seems like it would be great, but in reality it wasn 't that much fun just sitting around at home all day. The reader can see this when the narrator tries to write her daily journals, but she has to do it in a sneaky way so her husband will not catch her doing so.
Ophelia’s father controls every aspect of her life. “Essentially, Ophelia has no control over her body, relationships, or her choices” (“Hamlet”). Ophelia accepts her lack of control and for that reason becomes a subservient person. For example, when Hamlet insults Ophelia multiple times and then asks where her father is, she responds with: “At home, my lord” (III.i.131). Instead of addressing him as Hamlet or using an endearing term, she speaks to him as though she is of a lower class.
For instance, Doodle had a long list of problems that made him a burden. It says, “The doctor had said that he mustn’t get too excited, too hot, too cold, or too tired and he must be treated gently.”(345) Brother did not like to follow these rules, he did not enjoy taking Doodle out of the house. It says, “To discourage him from coming with me, I’d run with him across the ends of the cotton rows and careen him around the corners on two wheels.” (345) Brother was self-absorbed because he tried not to have Doodle come with him everywhere. He was mad about having to follow all the rules so he discouraged Doodle from even coming. Another example was when Brother taught Doodle how to walk because he did not like having a brother who was different, but in the happiness of the moment when Doodle could finally walk, he thought, “They did not know that I did it for myself; that pride.”(347) This shows that he taught Doodle to walk to benefit for himself.
The characters is very much interested in reason, as we can see since the beginning of the novel, in which he tells his son that they will not be able to go to the Lighthouse the following day because of the bad weather. Thus, we discover Mr Ramsay is not interested at all in James´s feelings, an attitude that is condemned by his wife, who loathes him because she believes him to have destroyed her son´s feelings, a destruction she believes will last till the end of their child´s life. Mr Ramsay´s superiority lays on his belief that he is intellectually superior than his wife and as such, he necessarily needs to be always right, he needs “to pursue truth with such astonishing lack of consideration for other people’s feelings” and that is, for
Grendel strives to break from this from this “Mechanical” world which he inhabits and desires for the establishment of a singular ideology that he can follow and accept. Grendel's inability to associate himself with one distinct group; soon to be feared by the humans and unable to communicate with his mother, leaves him vulnerable for the rash humans who quickly turn to violence to imprint on Grendel. The Captain follows suit, his life of secrecy, deception, and his facade of truth makes it so that the narrator can never get too close to anyone, even his best friends. The Narrator is often berated by

According to the author, her father constantly wanted her at home to take care of him and the house. She never developed people skills and when it was time for her to find a husband she wasn’t prepared to make the decision. Once she did find a husband, it was probably a bad one that made her even more upset and led to her attitude during the story. The way her father treated her affected her all the way up until her death, which only serves to say that the past will always affect the present. This theme is still important today because people need to

Another thing that led the narrator close to insanity was basically being isolated in the house. She spoke many times about wanting to see cousin Henry and Julia but John said he would only let her see them when she gets well and anytime before that he would rather "put fireworks in her pillowcase" than let her see those "stimulating people." After awhile she thought it was "discouraging not to have any advice and companionship."

For instance, the lecherous mayor in his office when Mary C and Cordelia go there. And times when Beulah Mae is making food but the character doesn 't eat. Unless there 's a reason for the scene, it doesn 't need to be in the book. Therefore, I think you need to, as in Gone with the Wind, have Daneon and Mary C look at each other at the climax and realized they 've made a mess of both their lives. Daneon can blame himself for being a silent man, like his silent and a womanizer like his father who put up with Cecily demands.
Initially, it was a huge issue with Herman and became only worse when he was finally unable to work at all. He feared there would be no one to maintain the house and take care of the children if she was working. It also threatened his masculinity, but similar to the families in the museum, they had no choice. If he wanted his children to eat and have a home he had to allow Katie to work. Several other ideas also overlapped between the Tenement Museum and Jews without Money.
