He had been far from the scene of the accident, and did not even know there had been one. He stood amazed at Josephine’s piercing cry; at Richards’ quick motion to screen him from the view of his wife.” (Chopin 3). This story shows a lot of Dramatic Irony. The irony of life killed her, but it might have been worth it for her in just that short hour. The other characters in the story saw Mrs. Mallard’s death as she how she couldn’t control the joy she had when she saw that her husband was still alive.
Up to this day, Betty still feels awful about some of the difficulties and stress that Estelle had to go through. "You would be forgiven to think that she would not be able to take a single step on stage. Despite all these challenges that she faced, she went ahead to be one of the reasons why this show is successful especially with the young generation. They find her character quite intriguing." It may be over 25 years since the show went on air but the three other actresses will forever hold a special place in Betty's heart.
It reminds me of the constant humiliation me and my best friend at the time received because we were tomboys, and weren’t dating like my sisters had. (13-16 years old mind you) It is a constant reminder that I’m not the only person who has gone through this, many other people probably experienced the very same judgement. And this judgement continues till this very day. Just a few weeks ago my Mother told me I need to watch my mouth, because it’s not “ladylike.” My one question that I kept coming back to is, “is gender really such a big deal?” I’ve never felt like I completely fit into either of the boxes, and I’m okay with that. I don’t need a permanent label either, I’m a female but I’m also just me.
If the speaker were to kill herself, this poem would still keep it’s metaphor in place, but it would lose a student. From this poem, one can note that the narrator is tired of her lifestyle and being graded for it, so she is going to try to escape from it. Pastan’s metaphor gives the reader almost no help to escape from their own graded
But your book made me realize that it happens and it is the way of life and I have learned to accept it. When I found out that Cara felt she no longer had a purpose I was befuddled. I felt this because it reminded me of when my sister thought she was worthless and had no purpose in life. This part in your book reminded me that not everyone in life is happy or feels like they have a purpose and feel useless. It got me thinking that this might possibly be a reason for suicides.I have also realized that some people become so attached to their lives that when a change occurs their whole world goes upside
I was in dilemma wishing I never walked the face of the earth and I thought I would be doing everyone a favor just by taking my own life. I was going through a rough patch, every mistake and wrong thing that I had done in the past rose back to life; eating whatever shred of self worth that had left. I started performing badly at school, my two-year long sweet relationship with my girlfriend was brought to an end, I felt as if God had turned his back on me I could not handle the pain, my life was now a complete failure, it was a huge scar that I had to bear for
We were leaving her today and deep down, it was killing her. We’ll be back at the end of summer and I cannot wait to tell you all about it mom I said to her as I squeezed her so tight and long enough to wipe my tears running down my face. I couldn’t let her see cry, it would make it harder than it already was. I knew it would be different but I was excited for the challenge. She wasn’t a strict mother pretty laid back, time to time we would burst that bubble of anger but it never lasted long.
That I was mad at myself for ignoring the pain, for trying to push past it, which resulted in my needing a cast. Something always hurts during a race, my lungs, my arms, my shins, or my knee. It made it even worse, however, when I missed the championship of cross country and the trip to Federations, knowing that it was partially my fault. I made a countdown for my cast, spending my days wishing it would come off sooner, and appreciating the fact that it was not permanent. All of these things brought me to a realization that will be with me, throughout the rest of my
CONFLICTS The overall novel is written on the conflict of global infertility, but the storyline progressed quite slowly for the first two to three chapters before the first main conflict occurred. Theo, the novel’s protagonist, has loss faith of humanity and runs over his fifteen-month-old daughter, Natalie, on accident and was left by his wife Helena who was horrified, guilty, and consumed with grief as she thought that Theo couldn’t care less which was true. I sense a slight sense of jealousy in Theo as he states, “She would rather have Natalie alive than me” about his wife. After this point, Theo attempts justifying his actions to himself ending up feeling more guilty as he says, “For Christ’s sake it was an accident. I didn’t mean to do it.
O’Connor’s depiction of the wooden leg in the story is a mild comparison to the amputation of her very soul threatened by imminent death relating to Lupus. To O’Connor her life became ugly and she voiced this matter of fact to Langkjaer in her comments about a self portrait that she had painted that was not flattering or attractive. Just as Hulga was highly educated, Flannery did know that she had high intelligence though she couldn’t spell and wasn’t good at Math. When her once last chance at love before her death was gone, it sparked emotions that had to quickly be dealt with and so O'Connor penned her masterpiece about her pain, her broken heart, her broken spirit and broken soul. Through this experience of loss of love and her imminent decline fo her life to Lupus, the author wrote a story to cleanse her healthy mind of pain and sorrow.
