The defining moment in David’s inevitable demise is not when he steals the $100 his mother refuses to lend him, but the “altercation, noisy and bitter between this mother and son” as David’s predicament is a clear representation of his mother’s “mismanagement”, though she never takes responsibility for being the source of sin for her children (84). As the altercation continues, Mrs. Wilson’s focus remains on Martha’s death and her not being chosen or saved by Christ, but David becomes quite hostile voices his plans behind his mother’s back to obtain the funds she refused to provide. While one could expect that David would meet his punishment for stealing, but as seen with Elvira, Jane is once again the scapegoat for the children’s crimes despite her insistence that she had nothing to do with the latest scandal within the Wilson household. When it comes to this event, Mrs. Wilson’s behavior is very hostile towards Jane and I believe that this was an overcompensation for the grief she felt at the realization of her child’s sinful behavior, his corruption. It becomes evident that Mrs. Wilson’s egocentric behavior only worsens near the novel’s end, when David finally succumbs to

The author uses the metaphor, " I don't want them to turn her into a swallow" multiple times. The reason for the constant repetition is so that the author shows us that the mother doesn't want her daughter to do what swallows do, such as flying away and leaving to different places far away from her. The author wanted to repeat this metaphor more than once to show the reader how she really feels. Due to the specific words used in the poem
Furthermore, Taylor had never really loved anyone romantically before Estevan. She only kept her feelings quiet so she would not end up hurting Esperanza. In that instance the human condition effected her again by means of love. Her endless efforts had no effect, she faced what all people do, only in a different way. The novel The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver and it’s vivid characters experience all the good and terrible ways of the world, while being acted on by the inevitable conditions all people must
Which explained why she had an affair and why Anse remarried so quickly toward the end. None of them loved each other. That is how I interpreted her passage while reading the book and why I rewrote her passage as if she did not enjoy her life because she did not. My mock style approach Faulkner’s style because in the first paragraph I wrote in that style because Addie explained the real reason why she married Anse and that being a mother was the worst for her. Faulkner wrote that Addie took him, however, I wrote that she only married him because of the house and farm while she did not have much and Anse wanted to marry her so she took the chance.
Mary attempts to conform to society 's expectations of a woman, but fails in doing so. She reads books vigorously, but will not be able to think deeply about its meaning--she simply regurgitates facts without analyzing them. She strives to be what society expects of her, but it results in complete loss of personality on her part. Kitty is described as being flirtatious and gossipy, sometimes to an irritating point. She does not have an extended description, but Austen intended for readers to assume that she was consumed with matters, not of love, but lust.
This decision and specifically the letter relates back to the title where it hints at secrets kept by characters in the novel. Marilyn never expresses her feelings about being a housewife directly and therefore she is not able to get help from those around her. If she has chosen to be more abrupt with her desires and demand that she should be allowed to study then maybe her life would have turned out
Once they decide on a man, there is no going back and divorce was considered uncommon. The women in the novel, each display their thoughts on marriage. However, Elizabeth Bennett, who is opinionated and passionate about her beliefs, is inclined to disagree with the norms of the society the most. While others believe that marriage is the key to happiness, she disagrees. She is not easily influenced by those surrounding her, even her family, and her honesty and wit allow her to avoid the drama that dominates the society.
The poem wraps up in a remorseful manner. She says, " If for thy father asked, say thou hadst none; And for thy mother, she alas is poor, which caused her thus to send thee out of door (22-24). Begging for forgiveness from her readers she suggests that she just did not have the talent to amount to her own expectations. Most could never imagine the feeling of your soul; unfiltered and genuine being displayed for the world to see and criticize. Anne Bradstreet 's poem gives a unique innuendo into both her personal character and our own.
