The power and control over Rosina and her actions is portrayed by her father. When her father unemotionally tells her that her sister is dead, she cannot help but think that he killed her, and fears that the same may happen to her. This event leads to the feeling of terror that the powerful are capable of anything. Second of all, power in family creates suspense when Georgina fears she is not being told the truth. After Georgina reads all the letters and asks Mr. Lovell, the solicitor, for the packet her mother left for her, Mr. Lovell says “I am afraid not.
Saba was determined to fight for justice but due to family and societal pressure, she actually just had to succumb at the end. While watching the film, I realized that in this century to deal with the moral issues of abuse and oppression against women is a huge challenge. As the idea of patriarchy is deeply ingrained in one’s mind from an early age and there exist certain loopholes in the law that let people literally get away with murder when honor is the excuse. The film shows the mindset of the men in our society. Even after being released from jail, Saba’s uncle and father were determined on their side of the story that she bought shame to their family and deserved every bit of what happened.
Although Dr. Stone hesitated he was in a rush to see his beloved Lady Sannox. In the article “The Idler”, Jerome and Barr edited: “Lady Sannox, the toast of London society, carries on an obvious affair with Douglas Stone, an arrogant, young surgeon.”, Everyone knew of the affair. It was obvious to friends and families, but no one said anything to Lord Sannoz until he found it out himself and seeked for revenge. An article written by unknown wrote, “He also had a secret romance over many years with the woman who would become his second wife.”. This meaning Doyle had an affair with another woman just like in the story.
We witness the lives of people she impacts, what happens to them, and how many times she lies to get her way. Abigail does all this for the man that she loves and had an affair with, John Proctor. If the reader begins to focus on John, his actions and what he stands for, they are easily able to recognize he portrays characteristics of the flawed nature of an individual. It is shown through the fact that he had an affair, isn’t able to forgive himself, and at the end of the book, is unable to give up something dear to him to save himself and others. When analyzing John Proctor, the first thing that stands out is that he had an affair with a 17 year-old Abigail Williams.
The raise of thefts began when Miller became deputy, and Frazer’s brother-in-law suggested Miller should be looked at as a suspect and fired. Miller laughed off the accusation however when confronted by Frazer. When Miller had killed a Mexican prisoner who was again “trying to escape”, Frazer decided to begin investigating. Frazer immediately fired Miller after another allegation of hiding a pair of stolen mules. This began the deadly Frazer-Miller feud, that would extend for the next following years.
The cops arrived, and calmed me down enough to take my statement my parents were called, and came home the next day. All of us were brokenhearted over Tommy, who got stabbed just for trying to help me. The following years were hard. I was in therapy for a year afterwards, and every anniversary of the event, I think over what happened. The reason my husband asked me about it was, years later after I had begun to date and finally married, I saw a news story about two robbers arrested not far from where we live.

Shahrazad shows him other people’s struggles and this does three things to The King. Firstly, the story brings us back to the idea of “misery loves company.” Shahrazad is able to show The King that everyone goes through trials and tribulations at some point in their life. Each of the old man’s tales conveys the same theme of being innocent, while the people closest to you betray you. We see this in the First Wise Man’s Tale when it reads “I entrusted my wife, this one here, with my mistress and son, bade her take good care of them, and was gone for a whole year. In my absence my wife, this cousin of mine, learned soothsaying and magic and cast a spell on my son and turned him into a young bull.” Each of the Old Man’s Tales has a similar quote.
Emily from “A Rose for Emily,” is oppressed by her father who passed away. Faulkners writes, “We did not say she was crazy then. We believed she had to do that. We remembered all the young men her father had driven away, and we knew that with nothing left, she would have to cling to that which had robbed her, as people will” (Page 4). In the short story, Emily’s father is proven to have been oppressive to her after running off every young gentleman that came around looking to court Miss.
This is the first we see her on stage again but it is not for long before she winds up imprisoned and hanged at Edmund’s orders. In the period of time she is aby her father’s side in their imprisonment, Lear, even though he was at first confused, is overcome with happiness that his daughter was willing to return to even be in his presence, offering to drink poison for her (IV.7.72). Cordelia saw how her father was severely negatively impacted by “those violent harms that [his] two [daughters]” (IV.7.27) had done to him, that he lost his sense of location, self, and time. Even after a long absence she was able to see what her sisters have done in terms of hurting their already withering father. And the last we see of her alive is in her father’s arms, cherishing their old memories, times when brother did not go after brother, sister after sister, son after father, wife after
The witness impacts the jury decision on many cases because the way they are. In the Trayvon Martin case Rachel Jeantel, the witness seemed like an illiterate hood person. The witness was on the stand for a couple hours. The defense would question her and agitate her to prove the jury that Mr. Martin was a hoodlum. They had persuaded the jury to believe that George Zimmerman had killed Trayvon believing he was a danger to himself or others.
