Is the fact that she sheltered her kids; to the extent where it had a negative effect. Her devotion and drive to keep her kids from becoming like their father may have been coming from a sincere place; however it only caused harm to their relationship. This can be shown when Jenny Lynn finds one of her offspring reading a book and decides to take matters into her own hands: (Pg.40) " my sisters one by one discovered my father's bedroom... my mother's reaction was always abrupt, bordering on the angry...and once I saw her slap my youngest sister so hard." Despite the fact that she disliked books and sees it as a waste of time.
Liza realizes she likes that she reached her goal of being a lady but doesn't like how she has become. She differs with Walter because she doesn't like the world she can now see threw her proper eyes. She sees poverty now and doesn't like that she is not as she once was. Patrick Berry explains Eliza's struggles when in her new skin in his article “Teachers, Capitalists, and Class in Pygmalion and the Millionairess” he states, Shaw satirically considers the idea that a line in the 'gutter' is more 'authentic' than one in culture. In poverty, proper speech may be absent, but there is violence and warmth.
In the poem “Fury,” by Lucille Clifton, told a story about Lucille's mother who also wrote poetry even though she was uneducated. Her mother was asked to publish some of her poems in a book, but because of the arrow she live in (men were more dominant in society) Lucille's father would not let her publish her poems. In the poem it state “wife” by being an obedient wife, Lucille’s mother decided to sacrifice and give up the poems that she cherish so much by burning them in the furnace. Her “clutching hands, animal-like eyes, and her crying”, show how against she was to throwing away her work.
Throughout the novel, it becomes harder for Julia to accept because her whole world changes when she learns that her marriage is falling apart, she is carrying a new life and Sarah's tragedy. Julia knows her marriage is falling apart when she tells Bertrand, she is pregnant and "He muttered over and over again. "I can't. I won't. Julia, you have to get that into your head if you have this child, it will kill me" (De Rosnay 136).
She also explains an encounter she had with a mother who had to give up her career for her husbands. The mother said “‘My husband understood my stress level, but his answer was, ‘Then you leave for work.’ It was my problem’”(42). The husband pushes his wives
Wilson, probably wasn’t meant to become deviant but seeing his brother and dad act in those ways influenced him. When they interviewed Wilsons, sister she said everyone compared Wilson and his brother and that made me think he of him being a secondary deviant. As far as Peagler, goes she did go through a rehabilitation process that included being an activist to other women, helping other people get their GED, and counseling. I don’t think she was a true deviant, and I think she should have released immediately. Violence, played a major role in Peagler life because she missed seeing her kids grow up, her family was stressed out over the situation, and because she was a victim of domestic violence she lost her life, mentally and later physically.
She wants everyone to do what she says no ands, ifs, or buts about it. As the story progress towards the end she begins to develop sympathy for the misfit in a plea to save her life. At first she is a little obnoxious to the family and none of the family gets along well, but with death lingering around the corner it makes her develop a new perspective of life. She cries out the name of her son but receives no response. She thinks being a lady and saying "You wouldn 't shoot a lady, would you?"
The talk the grandmother and The Misfit have between them is mainly about religion, and what was done in the past, the talk leads to the grandmother having sympathy for him. The grandmothers moment of grace causes a terrible reaction from The Misfit. After The Misfit kills the grandmother he says “It’s no real pleasure in life,” which I think shows that the grandmother may have had some kind of impact on him in there discussion. In the final moments of life, redemption could always be reached.
She acts a rock for her family. Even in her hard times she manages to become the person to bring her family together. She did not have an easy childhood or an easy life but, she lived it as someone who embraced what she had. Her triumphs were not just from a couple of cells but from the family that she helped to provide for. We are able to view Henrietta as a person with feelings.
The conflict is probably the most important of what we have discussed so far. In “The Story of an Hour” the conflict is based on Mrs. Mallard and herself. She is fighting against the fact to be joyful about her husband’s death because she can be free; she is trying to mourn for her husband, “She was beginning to recognize this thing that was approaching to possess her, and she was striving to beat it back with her will--as powerless as her two white slender hands would have been.” (Chopin, paragraph 10, sentences 1-3). Despite that, her joy eventually consumes her, when Mr. Mallard comes home, she dies for lack of joy, or more accurately, she dies of shock, her heart is just too weak to sustain so much excitement at once.
She says little about humanitarian aid in the first chapter besides how much it’s making her hate her life. The negative description of humanitarian aid work is a bit off-putting, not only to people who opened the book thinking they would be learning about aid work but also to her personality as a character. It’s easily assumable that being an aid worker would be a difficult and trying job. But the way Alexander portrays herself right from the start may make it difficult for reader to sympathize with her. It has been suggested that the point of the book was to break the idea of aid workers being humble and selfless people, which in the end the book does very
