Since there were so many “young men her father had driven away,” it can be inferred that Emily’s father was a very unwelcoming man who did not believe any male was good enough to meet the Grierson standards (Faulkner 55). As stated by Victor Strandberg, “driving away her suitors so as to keep her housekeeping services for himself, Emily 's father has ruined her chances for a normal life” (par. 3). After the death of Mr. Grierson, all that Emily had left was herself and the house because of the seclusion her father created. However, she could have willingly escaped this confinement because her father was no longer there to set rules for her.
Emily’s father played a role in her isolation. Her town believed she was crazy because of the way she and her father carried themselves, the fact she had never married, and the way she dealt with grief. Throughout her life, her father turned away countless numbers of suitors, even well into her 30s, around marrying age. “None of the
This story applies to the Feminist Criticism because the relationship with Emily and any male figure in her life is dependent. Also, this short story displays a society completely dominated by males. Moreover, Emily in the text is presented as isolated, a life she lives due to her father’s controlling ways, this shows her as dependent and feeble minded for continuing this unhappy way of life based on a man’s jurisdictions. Faulkner, in A Rose For Emily, states, “That was two years after her father’s death and a short time after her sweetheart— the one we believed would marry her—had deserted her. After her father’s death she went out very little; after her sweet heart went away, people hardly saw her at all.
Another example of hate is when Shakespeare writes, “Yet even so, within a month of my father’s death… crying like crazy—even an animal would have mourned its mate longer than she did!—there she was marrying my uncle, my father’s brother”( Shakespeare 1.2. 144-151). Hamlet anger towards is mother has now grown the the max. Hamlets hates the fact that Gertrude husband's (Hamlet’s father) recently died and she is already moving on. He even more upset by the fact that his mom was crying over the death of his father and now she moved on so quick.
One thing leads to another and all her actions led to disastrous reactions. The author portrays her as a selfish and manipulative person. Her main priority is not the well beings of her family but of herself. As her son, grandchildren and daughter in law were taken away all she did was plea for her own life. Convincing the misfit that he should let her live because she was a lady and he was a “good boy” is all she could think to do.
On miss Ratched 's ward it is very apparent that she runs every aspect of the men and that they are to scared to stand up to her because they do not believe that they deserve to stand up to her. These men in the ward have been pushed down so much in their lifetime whether from family or community people for there disorders and choices that they no longer care about their image or the way the should be treated. Take Mr.Harding for example the other men have heard him state many times “that his wife 's ample bosom at times gives him a feeling of inferiority.” (Pg. 44 paragraph 4). At the time when this book is staged men were supposed to feel like they were taking care if the wife but harding has never felt that way, and has been
He does not pity Oswald because he has been living alone for years and does not get to live with his parents, on the contrary, he pities him because he does not follow the herd anymore and he speaks only about what he believes in. Pastor Manders pities Mrs. Alving because she does not believe in society's rules and not because she marries an immoral man and lives without her son. Another important point is that Mrs. Alving knows that because she is a woman, she is not allowed to be given a voice nor speak for herself. This can be clearly seen when she goes to the Pastor to ask for his help and he sends her back home, and also in the fact that she is always called by her husband's name and not by her first name. Therefore, she says, "my boy shall speak for me".
Grierson surely would not approve that relationship, he tried to protect her daughter against a man like Homer from the beginning. Perhaps that was the reason why Emily was so inconsiderate and bought poison. Mr. Grierson was a Father, a Man, who was respected by Emily, and the only sin he could not have forgiven if his daughter had married with a poor worker. That could be the main reason why she went to the drugstore. Although she felt something, maybe (because of his father’s strict principle) she did not know what was that feeling, the meaning of love was unknown.
Clarissa’s reaction to such comments by Peter mostly leaves her weeping and shaken, which is never the case with Richard Dalloway, her husband.
