Similarly, lines 3-10 continue on in the same manner with the author proudly admitting that he is aware of his mistress faults, yet he still desires her. Likewise, in the lines 1-2 in the "Beauty in Ugly" the author states "She's so big hearted, But not so remarkable". Therefore, Mraz like Shakespeare is fully aware that their lovers are not considered attractive by society's standards even though they appreciate them. In addition, Mraz states in line 3 "Just an ordinary humble girl". Thereby acknowledging that the girl
New York: Modern Library, 1995. N. pag. Print.). However, while this neglectful nature proves a hindrance to four of his daughters, it creates an independent spirit in Elizabeth, a rare trait for a woman in 19th century England. The temperaments of both Jalil and Mr. Bennet, though considered good-natured, are extremely neglectful to their daughters and this impacts value system the protagonists have, with Elizabeth valuing independence and rational thought, and with Mariam 2.
Although she used to be a spitfire and applies the “special language of the quarter” without feeling abashed (271), she is “timid now, and everything embarrassed her” (287). This is likely because she has fully understood that the “special language" is actually used to attract male patrons. Additionally, her change in attitude is reflected in her attraction to the paper narcissus. Midori thinks that the white flower, a probable representation of purity and innocence, is “perfect and yet almost sad in its crisp, solitary shape” (287). This is parallel to how she had been before – pure, innocent and perfect – and now – brittle and lonely.
Antigone is unpleasant by sight, boney, sallow, pale looking, basically withdrawn in appearance unlike her docile and beautiful sister. Antigone isn’t what one would describe as a desirable woman in her time period. Although all of this is true, Antigone still manages to display the role of feminism in the book, with her boyish physique and her cursing her girlhood, which is a large part of being a woman in today’s society. She is the heroine that stands for what she believes in and always insisting on the pleasure of her desires, as she ignores or more likely refuses to understand the limits placed on her, as her rebel
However, Mayella Ewell doesn’t deserve to be treated with kindness because she is insolent and unethical. However, she works on keeping herself clean and gardens as a hobby, but the flowers she tends to will never be anything the beautiful ones that Maudie keeps. Miss Maudie is a kind, well rounded woman that has a beautiful garden, and is everything that Mayella wishes to be. Women are treated one way, as ladies, or another, as not, and Jem even once told Scout to “... just hold your head high and be a gentleman.” (Lee 135). Mayella has worked to be a respectable woman, but many things hold her back: her dad, her looks, and her personality.
You just got programmed into thinking anything else is ugly’” (Westerfeld 83). As Shay said, what Tally thinks real life is like, and how things go, it really is not right because she has not experienced the real world that they are living in yet. This proves it’s set in a dystopian because, in a perfect world, all people are treated the same for how they look and aren’t required to get surgery to make them look “pretty”. There probably aren’t very many people wanting to live the world of the Uglies which goes to show how horrific it truly is. Since Uglies has such a different and dystopian society they really have no similarities other than that they both have plastic surgery.
However, in the end, Nick does exercise his dominance over her by calling an end to the relationship. The women in the novel are a unique group, because they do not fit into the traditional portrayal of innocent and pure figures, rather, they are depicted as a stark contrast to the norms and in no way represent the pure figures women were often perceived to be. However, they do still retain evidence of conforming to a patriarchal society, through Fitzgerald’s own desire to refrain from straying too far from societal ‘norms’, and also through a strong reliance on material needs, by the female characters. Psychologically, Daisy, Jordan, and Myrtle are obviously quite different from each
(For example, Mother Sawyer in The Witch of Edmonton is at first abused as a witch merely because, as she complains, 'I am poor, deform 'd and ignorant ' (II. i. 3). But the fact that she is presented sympathetically as a scapegoat—the natural explanation—is not seen as contradicting the fact that she becomes a witch—the supernatural explanation—and therefore presumably 'deserves ' her death.) Nevertheless, the coexistence of those modes suggests that the structural closures that I have been examining do not
Because of her masculine style, it is implied that she has lost her femininity. Daisy Buchanan almost embodies values of new woman, too. She is very irresponsible and impartial. Her irresponsibility can be understood in her treatment of her daughter and also from her actions. However, it is clear that Daisy stucks between old and new values and she can not break out.
Due to their similar attributes, the grandmother and Misfit are not drastically different. Neither the grandmother nor the Misfit are purely good or evil; however, they do represent a general reputation of good and evil, respectively. Upon closer inspection, however, there is one fundamental difference between the two characters’ personalities: admission of wrongdoing. This is such a significant distinction that some critics argue that the Misfit’s character is not as corrupted as the grandmother’s because “the Misfit openly acknowledges his evil,” compared to the grandmother’s façade (Desmond). Due to this, the grandmother is not able to connect with the Misfit because she is hiding behind of a false appearance.
