This is shown when the Monster states “Cursed, cursed, cursed creator! Why did I live?” (pg.99). Here the Monster is regretting being created because he hates his life. He doesn’t get why Frankenstein would make him so ugly. He feels alone and hated even though nobody will give him a chance.
He confronts them, which causes them to become embarrassed, so they quickly purchase their product and leave. Sammie disapproved of how cruel the manager was to these girls, and he quit on the spot. This story is essentially a coming of age story; Sammy makes an immature decision that he believes is right. Unfortunately his act of manliness goes unnoticed by the group of girls, and he now has to face the consequences of what he has done. In the short story “A & P,” John Updike illustrates that Sammy’s immaturity results from his judgmental attitude, disrespectful personality, and sexist beliefs.
The first example of these fights is between the greasers and the Socs. Both classes disliked each other, just because of prejudice. The greasers assumed that all Socs were condescending, egocentric, and gaudy, and all the Socs identified the greasers as dangerous hoods. Therefore, lots of Socs would jump the greasers and vice versa. The next example of prejudice and hate is the fact that Ponyboy hates all guys with green eyes (page 1, chapter 1) only because he associates green eyes with Socs.
“ You can 't throw…? Something they branded you with…? That they made you wear so they could spit on you?” (Hackett, 111). This clearly shows that Peter is angry about having to wear the star of David, he absolutely despises the Nazis because they branded him with something so others could spit on him and make fun of him just because of his culture and way of life. The Nazis also affected others way of life in the annex.
necessities which do indeed lie in wait for him.” When Sammy decides to quit his job to show the girls that he supported their way of dressing, he finds that the girls have already left and did not care. It is at this point where reality finally hits Sammy hard, but then he arrives at another innocent conclusion: “I felt how hard the world was going to be to me hereafter” (Dessner ,n.p.). At this point, Sammy thinks that life is over, but the reader knows that it is just beginning. The setting in a way supports Sammy view of a conforming society and influences him make the decisions he made. A grocery store was an integral part of the American way of life because that is where people would buy products to satisfy their basic needs, however
During their marriage, she struggles to keep pieces of herself alive, the pieces of herself Nathan repressed. Orleanna even admitted that she “encountered her own spirit less and less” (200). Nathan has chipped away at her essence and she accepts that because she won’t leave him or challenge him. When she got the chance to be alone, usually when he went away on revival, once or twice Orleanna found herself “putting on red lipstick to do the housework” (200). She can’t wear red lipstick in front of Nathan because he would find it immodest and would punish her.
Krebs thought girls were “not worth the trouble.” (85) Although he may not have had the motivation to pick up the girls, he “liked looking at them.” (85) This is in no way the girls’ fault, however it shows how the war affected Krebs’ drive to do tasks that involve socialization. Perhaps if the townspeople were more open to listen to Krebs’ story then he would be more comfortable with girls. His mother is an example of how he interacts with women. He is shown to be very uncomfortable, and ends up with his mother’s feelings hurt. This shows how because nobody talked to him, he couldn’t talk to anyone comfortably.
Complete isolation is not the only contributing factor to Grendel’s savage raids and aggressive behavior. The label and detestation that he receives from the humans themselves prove this. Ironically, the society who dubbed Grendel “evil” is the same society that tormented him to the point of consuming humans. The reason that Grendel is even debated to be evil is because of the humans that showed him hatred and brutality. At their first meeting, Grendel narrates, “Darts like hot coals went through my legs and arms and I howled more loudly still,” (Gardner 27).
This makes him depressed, and therefore drinks to make himself feel better. This condition also makes him an incompetent, but when he is asked to sober up by an angry Katniss, he makes a deal with them, saying: “All right, I’ll make a deal with you. You don’t interfere with my drinking, and I’ll stay sober enough to help you.” (Collins, 2008, p.70) Katniss and Haymitch are not very good friends and they despise each other. He irritates Katniss by calling her “sweetheart”, and this anger Katniss. Although they don’t get along, he helps her, by communicating with her through the gifts he sends to her in the arena, and Katniss realizes that she and Haymitch are very much alike as they both understands each other.
In scene 9 however, we see this contrast disparaging. In regards to their use of language, Mitch uses slang such as “malarkey” (22), which is indicative of less education however Blanche later on says “rub-a-dub-dub, three men in a tub!” (36), and this is very unusual for her as she always acts proper and with an air of sophistication. Williams uses this change in language as a way to show that Blanche’s facade is coming down and she is more vulnerable now, especially in front of Mitch, whom she always tried to look her best and that based on her actions and life, she associates more with the working class. Moreover, when Mitch talks about getting the information of Blanche’s life in Laurel from the merchant Kiefaber, Blanche’s immediate reaction is to discard his credibility by vocalizing how crudely he treated her. This links to her inability to stop lying, even in this moment where she is confessing as it goes against what she believes, which is that she is of a higher class than this men.
“Suddenly with a strained sound Daisy bent her head into the shirts and began to cry stormily. ‘They’re such beautiful shirts,’ she sobbed, her voice muffled in the thick folds. ‘It makes me sad because I’ve never seen such- such beautiful shirts before” (98). Often, critics have simply inferred from this quote that Daisy is incredibly materialistic, and have left their analysis of her character barely brushing the surface. Daisy cries because the man who once looked at her like she was a person and indispensable is now trying to buy her, objectifying her once more in a way she never expected him to.
They steal food and give it to their friends so then their friends can get stronger. This also bring hope at the same time, Lina begins to realize that even though Andrius is having a harder time then she is, he still cares about everyone else. “Bring this to Mr. Stalas” (Sepetys 134).

It really seems to bug my cousin that his girlfriend doesn 't cook for him at times but, never was he honest enough to tell her.
In “The Birthmark”, Aylmer is bothered in seeing a birthmark on his wife Georgiana’s cheek. I believe that Aylmer was truly evil in the way he manipulated Georgiana in thinking he truly cared about her. Aylmer’s ideas of perfection were the most dangerous thing about him and even led him to kill. When Georgiana learned of her husband’s disdain towards her birthmark she was devastated. Slowly, Aylmer manipulated Georgiana into believing that this mark would need to be removed.
As the love between Hester and Dimmesdale results in the breaking of Puritan standards, Chihiro and Haku’s love also breaks the customs in the bathhouse. Bellingham sets the regulations for Puritan society, but ignores the regulations by having immense wealth, while Yubaba as the head of the bathhouse is usually concerned with money, overlooks everything else when her baby is in danger. Chillingworth, who was once a caring man, then devoted his life to harm Dimmesdale, while No Face, who is evil according to spirits, is actually just lonely. Both authors utilize how characters do not conform to rigid societal boundaries in order to criticize the strict regulations of society. Hawthorne sought to blame Puritans for having unreasonable expectations of people with the fact that human nature affects everyone, so Puritans did not have the “city upon a hill.” Miyazaki, by using characters who stray from bath house rules, is similarly pointing out how most of society nowadays is too success-oriented, lacking emphasis on emotions and
