Ruth is really hard to like especially when we as reader see what's really going on with Dawn and what she's going through. Ruth always turns to Barbra thinking that one of these times something will change. I really think that that's a bad idea and she shouldn't do that. If i were Ruth and i kept getting nervous calls concerning a child i would try to do so much more than give the mother another chance. Dawn almost killed herself because of her mother not being there for her and loving her like normal parents would do for their children.
In this scene, Curley’s wife talks to Lennie about her life before she meets Curley. Lennie tells her to leave but she responds by saying, “I get lonely...You can talk to people, but I can’t talk to nobody but Curley” (Steinbeck, pg 87). Curley’s wife always feels isolated and alone because
On the contrary, in “A Sorrowful Woman”, the main character is a mother who has come to despise her family and her duties. Over time she progressively worsens until she can no longer bear to see her husband and child, and in the end she kills herself. Just from that short summary of the two, it is clear to see that one is more sophisticated and complicated than the other. One author creates a solution that comes quickly with few obstacles and ends in a rather fairy-tale like, unrealistic way while another introduces a rarely spoken about problem that consistently
Even though both of the poems have completely different tones and emotions toward the reader, they are both extremely powerful and heartfelt. It is evident that the two poems, “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe and “i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart)” by E E Cummings, have many differences because one poem makes the reader feel a sense of loneliness, abandonment, sorrow, and
“Mirror” by Sylvia Plath This poem is very engaging. Although poetry is beautiful in many ways it can be dark and saddening at times. I wondered initially why Sylvia Plath chose to wrote from the point of view of the mirror, but then I understand that it makes sense. This poem revealed that this was an unsteady, bitter time in Plath 's life, not only Plath’s life but any woman can sympathy with it, the woman who the society wants her to be always young and but, as the years passed, the mirror cruelly reflects the changes in her appearance, she is no longer young and beautiful so she has to hide her real identity behind the masks. I think when you are emotionally unstable you obsessed with the mirror and it would not be simply a reflection of you, rather a measure of your inward that reflects on your face.
Amy was very materialistic, and often whined about not being rich during a time where her father was fighting in the civil war and could’ve easily lost his life. She whined without thinking about her mother and sisters, Josephine and Margaret, that tried their very best to provide the family with money. Irresponsibility often leads a person to become stubborn and influences the lives of the people around
The Dark Holds No Terror ‘ is a story of Sarita and her relationship with her parents, husband and the agonizing discrimination she faces throughout her life. It is the story of a marriage on the verge of breakdown and of a woman who has been made acutely conscious of her childhood. The novels counter the prevalent concept that “everything in girls life is fashioned to a single
She had been freeing them from their curse. Since Ganga revealed the truth to Shantanu, she could not free the last demi-god. So she left the baby in Shantanu 's care and went back to the river. The baby was named Devavrata, and eventually came to be known as the mighty warrior Bhishma) in the Mahabharata, both of which have a thematic relevance. With the portrayal of the New Woman, the wheel, displaying the faces of the Indian womanhood, turns a full circle in the
So, it won’t be an exaggeration to label her poems as the poetry of protest. Kamala Das was severely wounded by the patriarchal set up of the society ever since from her childhood which lead to her unhappy and dissatisfied life. She is even marred off at the age of thirteen to a cousin who was a very busy employee could not provide time to his wife. She exposes her displeasure about her parents in her book My Story, where she describes her “father was an autocrat” (91) and her mother “vague and indifferent” (20). She was considered by her parents “a burden and responsibility and she was given in marriage to a relative when she was only a school girl (82).
The study of Indian English poetry is incomplete without the study of women poets. In the poetry of Indian women poets of modern age, their silences speak more and better than the words do. The women poets in the post-independence India emphasise their feminine sensibilities vis-á-vis search for identity in a unique and creative way. Apart from the expression of self and identity, their poetry captures the moments of intense experiences of private life with all its uniqueness and immediacy. The confessional
