Another example of Daisy’s carelessness is when Gatsby, a man she says she loved, dies, and she does not attend his funeral or show any signs of grief. In essence, she cares so little about anything that she shows no feelings about the fact a person she loved getting murdered. Her gets perfectly stated by Nick: “They were careless people, Tom and Daisy—they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made” (Fitzgerald 179). Daisy feels like that because she has so much money and is part of old money, no action can impact her. No matter what bad deed she does, people will fix it for her and she will face no
When Emily’s father died, she refused the town from taking his body and burying it. She wanted to keep her father’s body with her and the town was “about to use law and force, but she broke down, and they buried her father quickly” (453). She also hid Homer’s body after she killed him. Emily wanted to keep him with her forever and did not let him say no to marrying her. She bought clothes and a bathroom set to
While she was writing, she ended up finding more documents about other nuns that I have attempted to gain the same power Benedetta had achieved. Saints like Maria de la Visitacion from Lisbon had shared the same outer body experiences during the sixteenth century that Benedetta had, but was revealed to be scam artist (pg. 73). Brown demonstrated in that text how most of the nuns or women that worked for the Lord were looking to noticed from under the shadows of the Father. That case brought up the discussion among the church and the public about if Benedetta was a scam artist or a true visionary that God used.
79. Everyone blames her for the departure of her husband but she is not the one to be overwhelmed by this criticism or so called shallow blames of the society. She is ready to face them all. She confesses her love for her husband and is resolute to defend her life and territory against all odds of the society. She proves to the world that living a life of her own is not a crime.
He sold her babies!” (249). Not even Alice’s suicide was her own choice, proving that her final act was not one of subversiveness, but of submission, because she had nothing left to live for and refused to fight for her liberty. She took the easy way out. Dying was not a final act of rebellion and was instead an act of complete loss. In death she no longer has to face any consequences.
Based on the precedents set by cases that came before it, the court should have absolutely no choice but to dismiss the assault charge against Mr. Smith because no permanent injury was inflicted- or intended- upon his wife, Mr. Smith has the duty of disciplining his wife when she is unruly, and the precedent set forth by many previous cases indicate that domestic issues should be left to the family government. This case should be dismissed before going to court because no permanent damage was inflicted upon Mr. Smith’s wife and there is no evidence to suggest he intended to inflict any permanent injury. There are several past cases that justify dismissal in these grounds, including Joyner Vs. Joyner, State Vs. Black, and State Vs. Rhodes. Joyner Vs. Joyner was an 1862 divorce case where the wife claimed that her husband- who was of a lower social class than her- had hit her with a horse whip on at least one occasion and hit her with a switch on several occasions. She was not granted the divorce on several different factors with one of them being that unless the jury could find that-from the evidence- any permanent injury was inflicted upon the wife or that the striking in its nature was meant to inflict any serious
Edna doesn't drown herself because of Robert, though Robert helped her decide to do it. He opened her eyes and Edna sees this awful world she is apart of. She drowns not because she is heartbroken of Robert, but because Robert stands for the choice she'll never get and love she'll never
Mary also had enough influence to “stop” Goody Proctor from being totally accused in court and said “But I never see no sign you ever sent your spirit out to hurt no one, and seeing I do live so closely with you, they dismissed it” (Miller Act II). People with enough sense know this too and fear starts to creep into those wondering if they will be accused or not. The girls and others also knew that once they accused someone, she would either have to confess or deny being a witch and be killed: “Hale: They have confessed it. Proctor: And why not, if they must hang for denyin’ it? There are them that will swear to anything before they’ll hang; have you never thought of that” (Miller)?
In addition, the artist mentions that she “plugged [her] menses with pages from the Holy Book”, suggesting that she turned to God for relief from the pain she felt. As Beyoncé declares her methods of relieving the pain, she chooses to touch upon several different belief systems to ensure her despair is clearly understood by the viewer. The inclusiveness of the piece is pivotal for the artist due to the size of the audience she targets to reach, because it comprises followers of a myriad of beliefs that coexist on this planet. However, in her adaption of Warsan Shire’s poem “Grief Has Its Blue Hands In Her Hair” in Emptiness, Beyoncé replaces the Islamic word “Allah”, used as an exclamation and not to refer to the creator of the universe, with a vague and open-to-interpretation “Oh my God.” This is a concrete example proving how intolerant the society is of their aliens and how this xenophobia limits the creativity of
The words of a women were not completely disregarded as unimportant or insignificant, at least not legally. If a woman is being abused or neglected by her husband, then she has the right to leave him. However, this right is only granted if the woman has been “careful” and is not at fault. It a woman wishes to leave her husband but has wasted her house and neglected her husband, not only is she not allowed to leave him but she is actually supposed to be thrown into the water and killed. If a husband neglects or abuses his wife, there is no mention of killing him; the only consequence for abusing his spouse is that she is allowed to divorce him and get her dowry back.
In this supernatural thriller, you’ll be taken along as Cera recounts her experiences in her memoir of how she discovered that the women in her mama’s family lineage were actually a long line of witches responsible for the protection of her new home and community. As Cera writes she will explain to you how her honest curiosity along with her rebellious, down-to-earth nature quickly got her into more than she could handle, mentally and physically, as she uncovers the many deep and well-hidden layers in her relationships with her mother and grandmother. Synopsis:
This ending is ironic considering that the grandmother never makes any reference to being religious before facing death. Also, she continuously reminds the Misfit of the fact that she is a lady in the hopes that it will have the same meaning to him as it does to her. However, not once does she try to spare the rest of her family. She is too busy groveling for her own life to give her family a second thought, even after the first gunshots have gone off. In the face of death, the grandmother constantly tries to convince the Misfit that he is a good man, even after he has ordered his men to kill her family, and presumably many others.
