This is one of her fears, not to be accepted by the American society, because that means she will never leave behind her parents` tradition, a tradition that she does not respect or desire for her.
During the Anglo-Saxon period, and even in today’s society, females portrayed as peace keepers because they are not supposed to get involved in any of action that starts some kind of feud. Because Grendel’s mother wants vengeance for the death of Grendel, she disturb the status quo of the female sex by starting up a feud. The same similarities are shown in Pascoe’s essay about how females are depicted and how they are supposed to act “However girls did not use this word as part of their regular lexicon. This sort of gendered homophobia that constitutes adolescents masculinity does not constitutes adolescents femininity”. (Pascoe, 577-578)The quote explains how girls at River high barely use the word “fag” because it did not account for femininity.
Antigone believes she should have the right of her brother’s burial. Creon states, “No one shall burry him, no one mourn for him” (Sophocles 2) illustrating that Polyneicis is irrelevant in the city of Thebes. The law in Greek society is a female should not have power or freedom over any circumstance. Antigone demands rights over her brother and will not accept
By calling attention to this issue and not letting it sit on the back burner to marinate; he is starting a change in how issues are handled or how they are supposed to be handled. If the unrighteousness of oppressing citizens to freely express themselves through speech or peaceably assembly. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words will never be forgotten; in fact, they will forever be carved into our history books for decades to come. His words were not only important in a political manner, for they were also important to the citizens who believed in his words on a grander scale. He impacted endless lives of his time who stood alongside him for what not only he believed in, but what countless others did as
Also meaning Duncan was the king also made it even more wrong to kill him. Macbeth started to feel as if he shouldn't do this because it was wrong and the king was a guest. Lady Macbeth had no time for hearing why they shouldn't do it. She never once questioned the terrible act before they had committed killing
Another example happens when Marilyn learns about the protocol from Barton. “You're going to make me die and I didn't do anything to die for--I didn't do anything--”(4). Marilyn cries about how she hasn't done anything, but in reality she was the one who walked on the ship to see her brother who she would've seen in a year if she waited. Now she could never see him. She walked past the sign that said “UNAUTHORIZED PERSONNEL KEEP OUT,” absentmindedly not thinking about the true consequences of her actions.
Bertrande expresses her true thoughts and decisions internally, but is unable to openly share them with society due to the feudal and patriarchal society being a barrier for women like her. Bertrande has a strong link to Catholicism and when Arnuad du Tilh is faced in court, they have no option but to give him a death sentence. However, Bertrande completely opposes this case in “not demanding [Arnaud 's] death.” Regardless of Bertrande’s choice, no one listens to her as they believe it is the for the best that Arnuad du Tilh should not live anymore due to the sins he has committed. This signifies that although Bertrande has voiced her opinions there is no possibility that she is going to have a significant impact on society that deters women from their choices and decisions. This scene is followed by when Bertrande feels she is being dragged “down at every step,” by the “burden of her sin.” This shows that
Creon enacts the law of no burial for Polynices’s corpse because he was a traitor to their country. Polynices’s sister, Antigone refuses to listen to Creon’s order and she says to her sister, Ismene,” he has no right to keep me from my own.” She stands in the face of Creon’s unjust law to follow her gods’ divine laws, and she buries her brother’s corpse. Creon’s full power isn’t enough to stop Antigone. When Creon knows that Antigone buried her brother’s body, he orders his guard to put Antigone in a cave till she starves to death. Antigone died but she got the glory she aims for rather than leave her brother’s corpse to rot.
She thinks this because Creon makes Antigone marry Haemon, Creon’s brother but she refuses. She always thought of being a mother and a wife but she refuses to marry Haemon because it is something that Creon wants her to do. “One husband gone, i might have found another, or a child from a new man in the first child’s place; but with my parents covered up in death, no brother for me, ever, could be born” (lines 905-915). Like I said before she doesn’t care is she buried her brother or if there is such laws that tell her not too. But she gave up to be a mother or to have children for her
They can completely ignore the law and others will have to make up for it. These members themselves are not even allowed to under mind their respective social classes. The people go out of their way to avoid the slightest possibility of insulting Miss Emily Grierson when Homer Brown is decomposing in her house. Townspeople complain to the town’s officials about the stink. It was so powerful that it is impossible for it to be coming from any living thing.
2. In this quote, Ismene is telling Antigone that she will not help in the illegal act of burying Polynices. Antigone becomes offended by her unwillingness to help her, because Polynices is Ismene’s brother as well. The reason why Ismene won’t help her, is because Ismene does not want to go against Creon’s law and be killed. However, Antigone does not care if she gets executed, she is willing to bury Polynices no matter life or death.
