I think that Capulet had every right to be angry as he would have wanted the best for Juliet. I sympathise greatly for Juliet. Parents should be caring and supportive, whereas Juliet’s parents are not, which makes me sympathise for Juliet. Lady Capulet does not understand Juliet’s feelings and does not care about her opinions as she did not spend much time with her. Juliet’s mother just wants to take advantage of Juliet’ marriage which is selfish.
She was very afraid to tell her father and was sure she’d get punished. “I wanted to say I came second so that he would know immediately, so that I would acknowledge my failure.” This doesn’t elicit a new ability from Kambili, but reveals how afraid she is of disappointing her father. Kambili also disproves Horace’s statement in the beginning of the novel when she believes everything Eugene tells her. Kambili cannot bond with her grandfather, Papa Nnukwu, because Eugene has been telling her that he is a heathen. “Because Papa Nnukwu is a pagan.
His wives, especially the youngest, lived in perpetual fear of his fiery temper” Achebe 12. Okonkwo was a big supporter of physical and verbal abuse in his home, especially towards his wives and Nwoye. To Okonkwo, physical abuse was another language. This is how he spoke, and punished, on the occasion of the abuse, and how he had handled the situation. Women was treated poorly in Umuofia because men believe that they were weak and in inadequate.
The sister of the protagonist Pip, Mrs. Joe Gargery is a good example, from the moment she is introduced the reader gets an awful view of her, she is represented as violent and everything in her character makes her unattractive. :” I had known, from the time when I could speak, that my sister, in her capricious and violent coercion, was unjust to me “(Great expectations,1992 ,p.53) What there can be concluded from these examples is that Dickens, the male writer, did not mean the reader to have much sympathy for these female characters. From deep within they are not good people and they deserve what they get. It seems as though Dickens generalizes the entire female population as being corrupt and impure at the core. Jane Austen on the other hand describes her own sex more careful and positive.
She began to howl.’’ (Crane The verbs Crane chooses, “screamed,” “howl,” “roared,” “growled”, suggest that Mrs. Johnson is not a motherly figure. The poverty causes Maggie’s parents to behave not like responsible parents. The father of Maggie dies early in the short novel. Maggie’s mother, a vicious alcoholic, who is described as a “sated villain”, is a mefistofelic character. She is abusive, she hurts her children very often.
“I could not believe her story and go on living with Stanley” (Williams, 1947, p. 145). While Blanche accused Stanley on raping her, Stella chose to defend Stanley and send Blanche to the mental institution because she knew that she couldn’t accept the truth of her husband is a rapist. But more importantly, it is because Stella wanted to protect her marriage since admitting her husband is a rapist means that her marriage is going to be over and her son is going to be growing without a father. And there is no one that she can depend on
His mother Gertrude then remarried to Claudius. Gertrude failed Hamlet as a mother by choosing to ignore his problems. Hamlet could have grieved properly and not have been tempted to murder if society at the time had been more accepting of men’s emotional health. It was Hamlet’s support system and society that had failed him, he was definitely justified to act hysterically. Although Ophelia had the best intentions, she abandoned Hamlet when he needed support and obeyed her father instead.
Lord Capulet could have prevented these deaths by listening to Juliet 's wishes and not force her to marry Paris. He also should have never brought out so much rage and anger saying he would disown her and his fingers itched because he wanted to hit her. Some people say you should listen to your parents and not disrespect them, but Juliet was 13 years old and was not ready for marriage especially to someone she didn 't love or know. He should 've been a more thoughtful and patient father, so he could have saved Juliet 's. Instead of being patient and thoughtful he was the opposite, ergo Lord Capulet was at fault.
Throughout reading this argument I could not stop thinking about what the parents might be going through to see their dying daughter be poked and prodded like the way she was and how they felt to hear the doctors and nurses say there was nothing they could do. To hear that as a parent must be the worst thing to go through. However, the author decides to not include the feelings of the parents into her article and I feel that it might not be fair to portray the young couple as villains who did not care what their daughter was going through while they might have just been thinking that they did not want to lose her. I understand that they might have not been willing to participate in talking to a hospital ethicist after their daughter had passed on, but to even have a glimpse into the thought process of the parents really could have taken this article to the next level, in my
Another way the parents were to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s death was when Juliet’s parents moved the wedding up a day. If they had not moved the day it would have given Friar Lawrence a chance to let Romeo know of the plan. Some may say that the parents aren’t to blame for their children’s death, and there were many other factors that led to the deaths; however, I disagree. I think the parents are one of the biggest factors that led to Romeo and Juliet’s death. This quote shows how Juliet’s Dad thought when she said she didn 't want to marry Paris.
