A wise woman once said, "The more a daughter knows about her mother 's life, the stronger the daughter" (http://www.wiseoldsayings.com/mother-and-daughter-quotes/). As any girl raised by their mother can attest, the relationship between a mother and her daughter is a learning experience. As young girls, you look up to you mother as your greatest role model and follow in their steps closely. In Jamaica Kincaid 's short story "Girl", a mother uses one single sentence in order to give her daughter motherly advice. Her advice is intended to help her daughter, but also to scold her at the same time.
Mariam was a simple girl who loved both her parents. In spite of her mother warnings she trusted her father and gets shocked when he gets her married to an aged man and sends her to Kabul with him. One can imagine how her heart ached when she says, “Don’t come. I won’t see you. Don’t you come?

It captures beautiful preparations for the party, it is tiring, but the end of the result gives all delights.

However, the use of Mangan’s sister as a symbol in “Araby” is more effective than the use of the girls in “A&P” because the narrator in “Araby” has been thinking of and admiring Mangan’s sister throughout his daily activities. It shows that she is important to him and his shyness and helplessness lead him to frustration. When he has a chance to impress her, it makes the readers feel a sense of true affection towards the character because she has been the only person he cares about. In contrast, the narrator in “A&P” has only just met the girls. He also shows interests in all of the three girls.
As she speaks the words that Lear wants to hear she appears to be an obedient daughter. McLeish (1985, as cited in Halenárová, 2015) describes Goneril as a woman full of ambitions and desires, and just like her father when she doesn’t get what she wants she becomes mean. She resembles her father in another aspect as well, she has a poor judgment of character she trust Edmund. When she gets her part of inheritance she totally forgets her father and orders her servants to treat Lear sternly: “Put on what weary negligence you please”. In order to get rid of her father she asks him to reduce the number of knights or leave the castle.
The treatment of women must have been near atrocious if the narrator’s wife looks forward to one of her friend’s visits, especially since she knows that he will treat her, most likely, better than her husband. She revels in the spotlight, and doesn’t seem at all concerned or worried how included into the conversation the narrator feels. Eventually, the narrator’s wife leaves the conversation, and the narrator is left without a buffer to deal with Robert. This, I believe, opens his eyes to his wife’s reality and standard of living, while also making him sympathize more with
Besides the obvious factor that they have a different genders Oedipus and Antigone are not as similar as the chorus says. Unlike her father Antigone is not blinded by what is right in front of her; an article says "She is always aware of the glory of her deed and dies for love in the largest sense of the word, but her concurrent awareness of her youth and her loss of earthly love humanize her. This reveals that Antigone is unlike her father, but it also reveals that Antigone cares deeply about her family and doing that is right. Antigone is also more self-aware then her father, she knows her position and what she wants she makes it clear that being a women is not an obstacle for who she is and what she wants to
Similar to Revolutionary Road, wife and husband’s different notions of self-fulfilment and dealing with a disappointing daily life contribute to severe problems in their relationship. American Beauty, however, does not emphasise the inability to compensate for a failed marriage between two partners who have forgotten how to love each other, but rather highlights the relationship between Carolyn, materialistic values and her blind urge to ensure an social power. Lester himself states, “Our marriage is just for show. A commercial for how normal we are; when we are anything but” (American Beauty). Carolyn does her best to keep up appreances according to her idol, Buddy ‘local-real-estate’ King’s principle “In order to be successful, one must project an image of success.
The fact that she can walk away from all those terrible experiences with love for her parents is incredible. Another thing I loved about this book is how it represents her parents, with all their faults, and their poor mentality, at its worst, without anger, or really any judgment, just with the love. If she had been bitter in her description it would not have been as amazing. This memoir was written with forgiveness making me respect her for not only surviving such a strange childhood to become a successful, but for being able to view her past with
She had no desire to hide herself, but did for the hope of a happy marriage. It wasn’t until after Jody’s death that Janie let out her hair which Jody commander her to do.

This was the reason she change her name from Joy, her birth name, to Hulga, a name she thought suited her bested. It can be said her understanding of love stem from Mrs. Freeman stories about her girls, Glynese’s and Caramae’s love life. So it was so easy for her to fall for the first guy who showed her attention ever. Manley told her things she never heard before like she was beautiful and he love her. As much as she tried to hide it and play
Elise shows the reader that nothing is permanent, which is one of the many themes in this book. Although this is mostly shown through Elise’s change in feelings about her life and herself, the same message is also shown in her relationship with Char, which goes from friends to friends with benefits to strangers. She was so obsessed with him until she realized she knew nothing about him, and realized that although he had done some nice things for her, her relationship with him was not healthy, and they stopped talking. Even the relationship she thought was so great was only temporary, which supports the theme even
Julia does truly love Winston. Throughout the work of the novel, she is drawn to Winston even though he is around 10-15 years older than she is; this is because she is drawn to his rebellious personality. “It was something in your face. I thought I’d take a chance.” She also shows her love by her carefully planned recklessness; she does the best she can to make sure their relationship stays a secret so that they won’t be caught and separated.
