Curley’s wife being the boss’ daughter in law should be treated with respect and dignity because of the power she holds, however, because of the ranch hands description of her, we as readers can tell she holds no authority. At this moment the reader is unaware of why but later discovers the social prejudices that plague the ranch. The fact that “she’s got the eye” not only dehumanises her but labels her as unfaithful and evidently untrustworthy in the eyes of the ranch hands. The use of this very short and direct sentence causes many to develop negative connotations of her as this is Candy’s opinion stated as a fact, misleading the reader into prejudging her as a predator rather than prey. Immediately, the reader is bombarded with bad impressions of Curley’s wicked and despised wife even though no one truly knows her.
The sister of the protagonist Pip, Mrs. Joe Gargery is a good example, from the moment she is introduced the reader gets an awful view of her, she is represented as violent and everything in her character makes her unattractive. :” I had known, from the time when I could speak, that my sister, in her capricious and violent coercion, was unjust to me “(Great expectations,1992 ,p.53) What there can be concluded from these examples is that Dickens, the male writer, did not mean the reader to have much sympathy for these female characters. From deep within they are not good people and they deserve what they get. It seems as though Dickens generalizes the entire female population as being corrupt and impure at the core.
By constantly fretting about her own health, she has become a valetudinarian who seeks the attention of others. Mary also maintains an unreasonable worry for her position in family and society, wishing to maximize her dignity in the eyes of the crowd. What is more, her “Elliot self-importance” extends all the way to natural occurrences, leading her to invoke “unfairness” in situations that seem to overlook her own ideal benefit. By characterizing Mary from a hyperbolic, satirical perspective, Jane Austen ridicules the conceited and silly behavior of many who do not deserve what they seek, because they think they
That comment says that Kate is speechless. She sees him acting like a tyrant but she will be labeled a hypocrite if she judges him.

Miss Strangeworth proves herself to be highly insensitive and masquerading. These traits best represent Mrs. Strangeworth’s personality because she seems to devalue the emotions of others and pretends to be pleasant being in public. All of her letters show her judgemental thoughts about others but she pretends to a kind person in front of
Great “Manipulation” Deception can present itself as a white shadow, pure and innocent while molding into the true evil within the darkness. In Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, women are viewed as deceitful and wicked individuals who are always seeking more whether wealth or a higher class level. Miss Havisham is the independent mother figure who is apart of this upper-class, living in the Satis House with her daughter Estella. Havisham mislead youth, due to her ambition and vindictiveness towards men, as way to satisfy the lack of attention and affection she had in her life while presenting the acts of individuals being inevitably wicked. Miss Havisham pushed Pip towards Estella to fulfill the passion she had once knew as her own.
At this point he leaves and then the next scene shows the daughters meeting and holding hands. They are allying one and another versus the king. They have the king where they want them. Lear is the one who cannot control people and other people are being very ratical with him. They are enjoying insulting him.
For instance, she had to pledge, judge, and urge for the separation to not take place because it would affect them both equally. As evidence, “He looked now more careworn and emaciated than as we described him at the scene of Hester 's public ignominy” that indicates how Hester was put forth once again by the public for the same sin that was committed. However, the second it was far more important because she was fighting for her daughter, Pearl’s hostility. Hester is shown at a low and vulnerable position in her life once again which could quickly be mistaken for weakness, that not exactly being the case because she is known to overcome her huge opticals. To many the way, Hawthorne characterizes Hester Prynne it may be complicated, but considering that her character has gone through a lot it is made clear that the character is not being dramatic but
She started using the curse words. She used to wear sweaters and jeans, now she wears shorts and t-shirts. This kind of reminds me of the poem just because now she is still hated for it and she just doesn't know what to do and it feels like it’s never ending. So, like in the poem, it says no matter what you do, you won’t please everyone, in her situation she can't please anyone
When some of the time, the colored folks are the ones who don’t know how to act. There is always going to be that one person who will ruin your day, just because you’re just you. Haters feel like they have to be better than you, and even if they are, they’re still going to hate. Just because they feel they have to compete with you, out do you, or just envy you.
“It’s not what you say it’s how you say it” that’s how the saying goes right? This is true when talking to people in general. Most people think that people with disabilities are word sensitive which is not always the case. People go way too far when labeling what is and what is not acceptable. In all honesty I believe we all have a form of disability some may be more prominent then others and are just well hidden; so how would you feel if someone was labeling you?
“The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury, “Good Country People” by Flannery O'Connor, and “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson all have very strong themes that depict a darker side of human nature. All are very different in plot, but are connected through their endings. They all start with seemingly normal characters who end up doing things that would not have been predicted. In “The Veldt” it shows children revolting against their parents. “The Lottery” shows a whole community turning against one person.
“A garbled echo returned to her. A final surge of fury shook her and she roared, ‘Who do you think you are?’” (O’Connor 33) This line is from Revelation when Mrs. Turpin was talking to a person that judged her, little did she know this person was jesus. Flannery O’Connor is trying to show that people often put themselves before others without ever wanting or letting themselves and others judge them.
