“‘...you’ve got to do something about her,” Aunty was saying. ‘You’ve let things go on too long Atticus, too long.’” (Lee, 136). Aunt Alexandra was a fickle creature, insisting things be done in a proper manner, done with such etiquette, such precision. Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird” tells a compelling story of growing up and coping with the aspects of everyday life, even when it be out of the ordinary.

Although her mother was not particularly thrilled with the choices Skeeter was making concerning her love life and her job, the film eventually reconciles them when Skeeter’s mother praises her for being the only one with courage in her family. Despite the fact that Skeeter wished for her work to remain anonymous, her entire hometown gleans an idea of who the author might be.

A common trend between her words is the issue of excessive love, most notable in Beloved in which a mother commits infanticide to prevent the child from subjected to slavery (Moyers). Morrison has not taken such extreme measures, her unceasing love for her children can be observed after her one of her son’s death, when “she could not work” and would “barely speak” (Brockes). Despite the pain of losing a child, the author confesses that motherhood is liberating (Moyers). Because she is a single mother, her children solely look up to her as a parental role model. Subsequently, in hopes to instill the qualities she knows will benefit her children – conscientiousness and honesty, for instance – she must display those traits first.
Even though my mom was as awful as she was before she let me go, everyone always reminded me of how stoked my mom was while she was pregnant, but years after I was born I watched her slowly wither away. Day after day she would come home at all hours of the night bringing home groups of people at a time. They loved to pick on me and throw me around, but they had no idea what they were doing, they weren't in their right mind to understand they were picking on
In the local culture, Lakshmi has low social status in the family, so as her mother-in-law.

Unfortunately, her mother strongly rejected her pleading because it was not the social norm for girls or women to receive an education (Bokser 12). Although Sor Juana’s mother declined her permission she did not let it cease her and still continued to study privately. Furthermore, as she grew older, Sor Juana continued to encounter the discrimination because she is a female who aspired for an education. In Sor Juana’s Rhetoric of Silence, Bokser articulates how Sor Juana, as an adult now, realizes the disruptions, risks, and obstacles that continuously occurred in attempts to learn. Bokser states, “Her portrayal of the female intellectual is markedly different from the classical image of the bodiless masculine mind” (12).
People often use the phrase “I’m cursed” to explain their bad luck. Someone might claim to be cursed because they end up nearly being killed several times or they have repeated relationship issues. We always tend to associate curses with negative events in our lives. In The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz, we are introduced to a Dominican Republic curse, Fuku. Fuku has done things to the characters in the book that many could say is bad luck, but coincidentally both of them ended up in the same situation and both of them live really miserable lives.
#1 Courage was also shown by Mrs. Dubose in To Kill A Mockingbird. She was a stubborn old lady who would say rude things every time Jem or Scout passed by her house. Morphine was her addiction, and since Jem ruined all of her camellia bushes after receiving many insults from her, his punishment was to read to her and have Scout join as well. Later we find out that Jem and Scout read to her for a certain amount of time, and during that time period she was without morphine. She wanted to wean off of morphine, as that seemed to be her dying wish.
In Khaled Hosseini’s A Thousand Splendid Suns, Laila, our younger protagonist, does not sense her mother’s warmth throughout her childhood. Instead, Laila detects that her mother, Fariba, has reserved all of her love for her two older brothers. Due to this, at one point in the story, Laila decides that people shouldn’t be allowed to have new children if all of their love was given to their older children. This opinion would, subsequently, play a role in Laila’s second pregnancy -- this time with Rasheed’s biological child. With a bicycle spoke in her hands, Laila considers aborting the fetus because she can not see herself loving Rasheed’s child as much as she loves Tariq’s.
Lily Mae Jenkins is a very brief character in The Member of the Wedding, but serves as an extremely important reference throughout the story. For, Lily Mae is similar to Frankie in the sense that she struggles with her birth given identity. Although not fully cross-dressed like Lily Mae, Frankie deals with the struggles of being an androgynous girl in a time of soft-powdery women. Lily Mae is a revolutionary character who is far beyond her time, in the sense that at this time nobody spoke up about transgender, LGBT, etc. She provides more insight into the strict social constructs of the time, that are still somewhat present today.
