In "Everyday Use" Walker establishes the symbol as respect for family heritage. The author shows that Dee was being ungrateful and shocked that her mother would give the quilts to Maggie instead of her. "She gasped like a bee had stung her" (64). This simile portrays that Dee has disrespected not only her mother but her heritage. She acts this way because this is the first time she did not get what she wanted.
“A Sorrowful Woman” examines the detrimental effects of the mother’s repressed sexuality on her small family, as well as how addiction and isolation hasten her descent into madness. The mother denies her sexuality for fear of retributions and judgements from her family and by society. Her repressed feelings have accumulated over the years and resulted in a subconscious hatred for her husband and son. Godwin communicates how little they mean to the woman by never even revealing their names. Instead, they are referred to as “the husband”(1) and “the child,” (1) viewed by the mother as extras in the production in which she is trying to play a believable
Adeline faces many tough challenges and is forced to inwardly prepare herself for the obstacles that are continually thrown at her. Adeline lives in a negative household where it is considered conventional for her to be despised, and so she has a constant feeling of being rejected. She shoulders that burden through her school and even keeps up the pretence that she comes from a secure household. Even though she doesn’t confide her true feelings, she eventually opens up. This is shown when Adeline exclaims to Aunt Baba, “I want to forget about everything that goes on here!” (page 122) Only then it is realized the full extent of how much she had bottled up the hurt she gained from her family, and how strong she was to withstand this feeling of worthlessness.
Her attempts at tricking the inspector falls short as her own sister and her husband deny her pursuit and disdain her. “…women get strange ideas at times…she is a dangerous and shameless woman” (73). This statement about Aunt Harriet by Joseph Strorm is a prime example of how women are expected to remain detached and dispassionate about their personal, emotional struggles and have no intervention about how she is placed in
This caused her to alienate herself since her mother asked her to keep a part of herself hidden from the world by binding her and making sure no one found out she menstruated ealy (Anzaldúa 1983, 221). This will later isolate her further but ultimately lead her to reflect on the racism that surrounds her. In addition, Anzaldúa’s identity also suffer because she denied her heritage and the traditions that with it. She mentions that she felt ashamed of her mother and her loud tendencies, it is an archetype that most Hispanic mothers are loud by nature, and the fact that her lunches, or “lonches”, consisted
A pessimistic story covers up the good with the bad. Since Twyla and Roberta were first introduced in the beginning of Recitatif, It was clear that prejudice was major theme due to Twyla 's comment “my mother won’t like you putting me in her.” Although the race of the two girls is never truly revealed, Morrison suggests that one is black and one is white. This is identified as a pessimistic story because throughout the girl 's relationship, loving moments such as the interactions between mothers and their reunion in Howard Johnson 's is covered by racial hate. During the time they stayed at the shelter, they were protected from the racial division between the black and white community, and ultimately found nothing wrong with their relationship. As the two are exposed to reality once they leave the shelter, race wedges between the girls and causes them to drift apart.

However, they all fail to do so; Baby lamented "they are afraid of my sadness" (O'Neill, 2006, p.128). Nevertheless, Baby was correct in her assumption society feared her sadness, with teachers and social workers perpetuating the notion that she is a troubled kid, it was difficult to keep friends. This could have acted as a buffer from her home life. (Johnson, A.G. ,2008, pg8) stated that " The resulting patterns of inequality and oppression not only ruin people's lives, but also create division and resentment fed by injustice and suffering that eat away at the core of life in communities, workplaces, schools, and other social situations." Throughout the book progression of social exclusion affected Baby’s life; every step Baby makes in the right direction is thwarted by rejection.
