Warren’s Profession, Shaw argues for a push towards equality for men in women which can be directly be seen within Frank’s role in the piece through the use of hyperbole and analogy to display the unfairness in the time period. Since the beginning of the play, tension has developed between Frank and Mrs. Warren given the fact that Mrs. Warren does not believe that he can provide a quality life for Vivie given his lack of skill paired with the fact that he essentially lives off of the church because of his father. Frank expresses his disdain of Mrs. Warren to Vivie by comparing her to an “old wretch” (Shaw 1812). Frank simply is appalled by not only the type of pioneering woman Mrs. Warren is but also that that she has a job that creates income for her and Vivie to live sustainably. Shaw crafts these nasty words to display how many men felt during the time period of a woman who chose to go out and make a life for herself.
By examining the actions of the characters in The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams,The Truman Show, and “The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty” by James Thurber, the reader can see each character struggles with and withdrawals from their realities. We also see the author gives each character a way to make their realities a little better. Throughout each story, each character struggles to accept their realities. A struggle with acceptance was shown in “The Glass Menagerie” when Tom was arguing with his mom about work when he said “You think I want to spend fifty-five years down there in that celotex interior! with fluorescent tubes… I’d rather somebody picked up a crowbar and battered out my brains than go back mornings”(Williams 23).
After Mitzi reports that she believes Miss Blacklock is the murderer, the other characters seemingly brush her off as they do very frequently. It is in this chapter that the reader finally discovers that maybe Mitzi was on to something. After Mitzi’s outburst, Miss Blacklock joins her in the kitchen, confronts her, and Christie writes “Only I know that you’re telling the truth for once,” said Miss Blacklock viciously.” After this exchange of words, Miss Blacklock attempts to kill Mitzi. (Christie 265).
Jane’s perception is emphasized by a conversation between Bessie and Abbott she randomly overhears, after she was locked into the red-room. They both share the opinion that if Jane were “a nice, pretty child, one might compassionate her” and that “a beauty like Miss Georgiana would be more moving in the same condition” (31). This statement clearly accentuates the utmost importance of outer appearances and most of all beauty at the time. It displays that compassion and affection were hard to receive when you were not pretty. The reader, on the other hand, probably pities Jane after her horrible experience in the red-room, therefore this emphasize on beauty has to be seen in a critical way.
Jem usually ignores people who talk trash about their family but when someone insults Atticus he would be furious but Atticus teaches him to be a gentleman and ignore the hateful comments. One other neighbor, Boo Radley is always behind doors but he shows Scout that he is not a bad person. Atticus knew it was Boo who covered up Scout but Scout says “Thank who?” and Atticus replies with “Boo Radley. You were so busy looking at the fire you didn’t know it when he put the blanket around you” (72).
Character Analysis Essay Candy, Of Mice and Men Candy is described as a stereotypical old handyman, with only a stump as his right hand due to a machine-related incident at the ranch. Steinbeck preconceived the idea to the readers that Candy has spent the best - and perhaps the most efficient - years of his life working on someone else’s ranch, only to loose his hand and have little money. He also paints a dog as a companion for Candy, who very much like Candy, is old and crippled; but also stinks and is blind. Throughout the story Candy keeps reiterating his greatest fear of ‘getting canned’, made worse by the faith of his dog. A symbol of Candy himself, the dog was once a great sheepherder but as time passes, neither past accomplishments nor current emotional ties matter as the dog has outlived his usefulness and is killed.
Churchill shares her thoughts in regard of Jane Fairfax, as she shares her suspicions concerning the pianoforte Jane received, with Frank. The pair even go so far as to mock Jane with witty comments “I believe I have been very rude; but really Miss Fairfax has done her hair in so odd a way” (215), each of his own motives. Finally, Emma is pleased to discover someone, other than herself, finds fault in Miss Fairfax, who “was made such a fuss with by every body!” (160). This common perception of Jane, reassures Emma’s superiority over one of the greatest threats to her social position, further exemplifying her fondness of Mr. Churchill is merely the sense of self-aggrandizement he provides her.
She mentions the bedstead that is nailed onto the ground and the canvas mattress that is on it. This shows the expression of imprisonment and the remotion that she is controlled from. The author also conveys the patterns on the wallpaper to describe the nursery room. The intricate design of the yellow wallpaper is impersonating the narrator and reflecting on her own self. Furthermore, the practical idea of the medical institution was to keep her away from becoming more ill, but in the end, it was rather destroying her more as she faced the truth of the inner reality of her life.
Miss Strangeworth proves herself to be highly insensitive and masquerading. These traits best represent Mrs. Strangeworth’s personality because she seems to devalue the emotions of others and pretends to be pleasant being in public. All of her letters show her judgemental thoughts about others but she pretends to a kind person in front of
Deborah asks her to read it aloud, so Skloot says, “The Washington Post article quoted him saying, ‘The worst thing you can do to a sick person is close the door and forget about him.’ When I read that line out loud, Deborah whispered, ‘We didn’t forget about her. My mother died… nobody told me. I would have got her out.”’ (Skloot 276)
In “The Funeral,” the narrator Henry James shows condescending and playful tone towards the people attending the funeral. But not being focus on the actual funeral and drawing his attention to the people, he grieve at all, as you usually do in a funeral. The author’s diction expresses his mischievous attitude toward the funeral. When the first arrives, he points out that the elements of “groteque” was noticeable.

In “Property,” Stony never flat out states that he is hurt about the passing away of his wife; but his friction with objects, that appear to be so mundane, like the platform bed is central to our understanding of what exactly is hurting him. A bed is more than just a place of rest; it holds all the memories central to everyone’s lives. In demeaning the bed and finding every way to disassociate himself with it, it becomes obvious that Stony is forcing himself to avoid recollecting his union with Pamela and their many memories. Stony only allows us to see how hurt he is through his actions and the author’s diction. Ranging from the author’s association of the bed as a torture device to Stony moving and placing the bed in the studio with the other precious items, Stony’s true feelings towards his wife’s passing are
