Once she expresses to her parents that she does not want to marry Paris so quickly, they call her names such as a whore, ungrateful, a curse, and fat. However, after she concedes and admits she was set straight and ready for marriage, they acted as if nothing wrong ever happened. This unstable aurora that exists within the family is enforced by Lady Capulet. In the beginning, it is Lady Capulet who ruins the father's plan of getting Juliet to fall in love with Paris.

Through the novel, we can see how Gilead negatively affects the psychology and mentality of the handmaids that makes them to give up to the system and brain washes them. One example is Janine. She is rejecting her victimization and ignorant of her own victimization, Janine looks revolting, pathetic, and distressed. For example, Offered describes Janine as pitiful since she tries to fulfill Gilead’s roles. She describes her how she throws herself into the testifying and feels arrogance in describing her rape story and abortion; subsequently, feels guilty when she had done nothing wrong.
Hedda is a victim of all the negative qualities that can be imagined. Ibsen has tried to move away from the stereotypical women by sketching feminist dramas but yet when he deprives the woman of her doll-like exquisiteness and angelic beauty, he still remains confined to the stereotypical women rather he makes them monstrous and treacherous. In my research, I will look out to these questions that How can a loving wife neglect and torture her husband? How can she insult her husband and his relatives? How a female can negate her child?
The grandmother doesn’t seem to develop in the story until she faces life or death at the end, she may have never developed if have it not been for the Misfit. The grandmother in “A Good Man is Hard to Find” has a moral code that she follows but by the end of the story the Misfit makes question her moral code. A moral code isn’t something that necessarily means good; a moral code is a set of beliefs and behaviors that people abide by to live what they consider to be a reasonable. The grandmothers moral code is based on appearance over substance, Christianity, and ladylikeness, for example, when the family was getting in the car to leave the grandmother was dressed very nicely so just in case there was an accident “anyone seeing her dead…would know at once that she was lady.” The grandmother also, although she barely knew him, thought that Red Sammy was a good person because he let what he thought were good country people charge the gas. When the Misfit shows up at the
/ Is Romeo slaughtered and is Tybalt dead?”(3.2.70-71). This quote at the middle of the story shows that Juliet tells her family and the nurse what they want to hear from her, meaning Juliet doesn’t have her own opinion, so her family takes this as an advantage so they could persuade Juliet that the Montagues are evil people. So, Juliet expresses that she’s angry about Tybalt’s death, and wants to avenge her family member (Tybalt). In relation to this, this expresses that she’s loyal to her family’s interests and doesn’t have her own opinion based on her experiences. Towards the end of the story, when Juliet asks Friar Lawrence for assistance concerning the marriage, Friar Lawrence expressed to Juliet, “O Juliet, I already know
A girl was not, as I had supposed, simply what I was; it was what I had to become. It was a definition, always touched with emphasis, with reproach and disappointment. Also it was a joke on me(142)”. The main character does not take into account how her mother might want someone to bond with until she is older. Because of her immaturity she has a bad relationship with her parents and her brother even though her thoughts are justifiable.
She was very afraid to tell her father and was sure she’d get punished. “I wanted to say I came second so that he would know immediately, so that I would acknowledge my failure.” This doesn’t elicit a new ability from Kambili, but reveals how afraid she is of disappointing her father. Kambili also disproves Horace’s statement in the beginning of the novel when she believes everything Eugene tells her. Kambili cannot bond with her grandfather, Papa Nnukwu, because Eugene has been telling her that he is a heathen. “Because Papa Nnukwu is a pagan.
Edna then looks back at her feelings towards the birth of her children. She merely saw them as an addition to “the great unnumbered multitude of souls that come and go” and reveals her nonmarital nature. Then, Madame Ratignolle tells Edna to “Think of the children Edna... remember them.” These words ring in Edna’s head and played the role as a wake up call. Edna has previously planned on abandoning her moral values, but these words made her realize the effect her actions of adultery may have on her children. This is the first example of Edna’s alienation and how society’s assumptions of her, which were brought to her attention by Madame Ratignolle, should play a larger role in her
If I imagined it hard enough, then it would be true.” At this point, Kambili was use to mama losing the baby. She knew papa played a role in losing the baby. When the beatings happens Kambili tries to imagine something positive hoping it would come true. Another example of how Kambili’s adversities does not elicit talents she never knew she had is when the girls talk about her at
The imagery of the ‘sour air’ encompassing her represents a miasma of rejection from society, who pressure her to conform to a single way of life. Whilst some say that looking through a Bell Jar gives her a distorted perception of society and the pressure she receives is a fiction of her own imagination, one must look only at her relationship with her mother to realize she is victimized by her harsh society. In specific it reminds us of the toxic environment set up by her mother who tells her "I knew you'd decide to be all right again". It’s shocking to the reader who is able to sympathize with Esther’s clear internal struggles, yet her own mother sees it only as a nuisance. The extended metaphor within this novel and the fragmentary structure we so often see in Plath’s work presents the depth of mental disorder but more importantly brings a harsh light to the society that never understood or even tried
