He thinks, “Oh God, what a strenuous career it is that I’ve chosen! (…) there’s the course of travelling, worries about making train connections, bad and irregular food, contact with different people all the time so that you can never get to know anyone or become friendly with them.” (Kafka 2). He only fulfills it in order to pay off his family’s debt. He is constantly thinking of quitting. However, what keeps his working as a traveling salesman is his loyalty and his sense of obligation to the family.
And yet, he keeps to his regular, tedious schedule, despite the fact that he hates his job, just so that he can put a wad of cash on his family table. His work is always his first priority, even upon waking up having turned into a horrifying, gruesome insect. This is, while being a rational thought, not one that most people would have while in a panicked situation. He is so obsessed with his work, in fact, that it almost seems like
From the very beginning, Elizabeth Bennet (Lizzy) is opposed of Mr. Darcy because she believes they contrast. Despite Lizzy and Mr. Darcy’s beleifs about the other, they are more alike then they realize. Throughout the novel Lizzy clearly presented herself as an individual that was quick to judge, but she wasn’t the only one of doing so. Miss Bingley, Mr. Bingley’s sister, has come forth in the second ball of the novel to address what she has heard from Lizzy’s sister. “ ‘...Let me recommend you, however, as a friend, not to give implicit confidence to all his assertions; for as Mr. Darcy’s using him ill, it is perfectly false; for, on the contrary, he has always been remarkably kind to him, though George Wickham has treated Mr. Darcy in a most infamous maner…’ “ (93).
In addition to Levin’s conflicting feelings, there’s also Dolly’s struggle to stay with Stiva for her kids after Stiva reveals his infidelity. She describes it by exclaiming, “I think of the children...but I don’t know how I can best save them: by taking them away from their father, or leaving them with a depraved father….” (Tolstoy et al. 12). Her predicament is known and she remains that way until Anna comes to talk her down. However, even that is temporary, but Dolly stays with Stiva for her kids.
What happens when two families don't get along? Romeo and Juliet is a story about two families with a feud and forbidden love between their children. The Interlopers is a story about the Gradwitz family and the Znaeym family that have been fighting for three generations over land. Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare and The Interlopers by Saki are two stories about family feuds that have been going on for years. Although there are similarities and differences, both develop the theme that hatred solves nothing and leads to further tragedy and negative outcomes.
Despite representing Sethe’s life after slavery, Sethe’s inability to both forgive and release herself from her guilt sees her desperate attempts to veil it with a love for Denver that Paul D claims is “too thick” (Morrison, 2007: 203). Memories of her dead daughter are thus both an implement of healing and a tool of masochism. Sethe’s forces her into a kind of stasis; an interloper that prevents her from moving on from her haunted past. But, unlike her mother, eventually “Denver prevents the past from trespassing on her life” (Ayadi, 2011: 266) and becomes a transformed female figure. With the introduction of a long-lost friend of Sethe’s from her days at the slave yard, Sweet Home, Paul D at first appears to be the liberator of Sethe from the shackles of her actions and the heavy weight of not only her child’s death.
While Nelly assert that Mr. Earnshaw was a kindhearted father though he was rather severe and strict sometimes, this does not eliminate the fact his relationship with his children, following his wife’s death, was characterized by negligence and lack of understanding. Along with these observations, Howard, Martin, Berlin and Gunn (2012) maintain that a child’s separation from his mother has been linked to behavior problems, particularly for girls. Consequently, apart from her attachment to the wild Heathcliff, the gulf between Catherine and her father and her mother’s death had negatively impacted her mental health and her character formation. Lastly Catherine is also a victim of
As the days goes by his family became more frustratuate on him. Gregor’s sister, Grete, treats him with kindness and at the end, she also was the one who confront to Mr.Samsa and Mrs. Samsa that they need to get rid of the monster that is living them. “‘Father, Mother,’ said his sister, hitting the table with her hand as introduction, ‘we can’t carry on like this. Maybe
Of husband and wife, brother and sister, friend and friend, or any other relationship that is formed in one's life, the bond between mother and child is the strongest. Throughout The Awakening, by Kate Chopin, Edna's children, by their very existence, serve as chains that keep her from pursuing her own goals and desires, as she is bound to them by her motherly duties. Edna's feelings of bondage by her children force her to remove herself from an innately meaningful relationship, in an attempt to elsewhere find meaning. This backwards mindset leads to Edna's eventual downfall, where, even then, she could not understand what she let go. Her stagnant thinking throughout the book reveals that she never had an "awakening", and she was doomed to
It’s a meeting that ends fatally for the family, but nonetheless changes two characters for the better. The main character, the grandmother, is displayed similarly to many other protagonists that O’Connor had written- selfish, rude, and vain. She and the murderer, called The Misfit, are both used to show that people can change with the help of God’s grace. Symbolism is also prevalent in
Since Merida does not want to become a princess, this makes her roles peculiar than the traditional roles used in other Disney movies. Merida is also different than the other Disney Princesses since she has a tenacious bond with her family and mother. Most Disney princesses do not have a mother, but if they do, they do not share a strong bond with her and they are not queens. The same goes with the father. This makes Merida different because she has a mother and a father, who are both a king and queen.
Fahrenheit 451 had many different pairs of characters that had many different thoughts about certain things in life. Mildred, Montag 's wife, was very negative and only cared about herself, but Clarisse cared about other people than herself and had a positive view on the outside world.

In the book, Fahrenheit 451, there were three pairs of characters who were very different from each other and represented something or somebody in a society.
Because the author changed the third person point of view from Mariam to Laila, Hosseini can compare and contrast the two characters. Laila and Mariam are influenced by their mother’s behaviors. At times, both girls have hard feelings towards them, but at other times are empathetic. Nana and Fariba have experienced a lot of grief in their lives, but both of them can not look past it. Their inabilities to overcome the different losses in their lives affected the egos of their daughter’s, which is why Laila and Mariam feel much closer to
Miep Gies made an impactful difference during the Holocaust giving Anne’s diary to her father was probably the most important thing she did. It was as if Otto Frank still had his daughter by him and something to remember and want she felt. Going back to how we could prevent things like this from ever happening, which is still going on today it could be much worse now than it ever was and many aren’t aware about this, as I’m writing this down word for word some could be dying, suffering, or could already be dead. There 's something we could of done about that. History should not repeat itself, but knowing how the world is now it could never be too late to make a
What else could they have changed to allow it to be a less racist movie? For one, the time period and the location of the movie could have been changed. After all the movies Disney has done, why couldn’t they have not come up with a fairy tale location and time that would be suitable for a story like this? They do with a most of their other movies anyway, so why didn’t they? It’s the point that Disney is trying to get across is that they cannot write people of different color in their stories without going to a race issue.
