This added to her character and made her relatable because she found a way to give her life excitement even though she was an older woman that lived alone. As one reads the story, they can see bowling has become her life and she had more intimacy with it than her husband. The author writes about her bowling as if it is the husband she wished she had when he says, “Approaching the foul line, her stride became more fluid as she bent her right knee slightly and trailed her left leg around the back with the grace of a young bride dancing with her new husband for the first time.” But after her favorite bowling ball gets stolen, she loses confidence in her skills, and seems to be very depressed. The bowling bowl most likely represents the freedom she gained after her husband’s death. But yet another man came into her life and took something important to her, and she stood there helplessly.
“’I know you didn't mean to, but you did do it. That's what I get for marrying a brute of a man’” (72), and he does not seem to care much about her. Daisy confused love with wealth, “’She wanted her life shaped now, immediately – and the decision must be made by some force – of love, of money, of unquestionable practicality’” (151), therefore, Tom easily bought her love with “’a string of pearls valued at three hundred and fifty thousand dollars’” (76). Daisy’s incontrollable passion for wealth overtakes her identity causing conflictions within her life. Daisy thought she had everything desired in the American
Within both short stories, the protagonists’ elders dictate their home life. Charlotte’s mother, an imposing figure that hates disorder and embodies perfectionism, prevents her daughter from developing a personality at home. In Charlotte’s household “ [complaining] is weak, [rejoicing] is childish, [laughing] is noisy. And moving around raises dust” (Wilson, 184). Similarly in The Bicycle, in Hannah’s entire day revolves around the schedule that her Tante Rose implements.
I knew nothing. I didn’t know about Aboriginals. I didn’t know about the culture, colour of skin, nothing whatever. I had to really learn. In fourteen years at the mission I had learned nothing about my own culture, I had been taught little in the white education matters.
In some parts of the society a child can receive his or her name four days after birth; “ in other parts a child is not named until the expiration of seven Igbo market week (28 days)”(Stewart,pg 29) On the naming service day, the fiery debris from the log are expelled from where the mother and the child had been separated. “ Most people wait until the umbilical cord, which is cut immediately after birth, has healed” (Stewart, 27) The actual naming process is very significant capacity. It is a characteristic of honor and regard to be welcomed by being given a name, and the privilege is normally held for one of the senior relatives. The baby's guardians and grandparents,from both the father's and mother's sides also play important parts. Often the community members are expected to attend the service, which usually is held at a Obu or Obi, this is usually the home of child’s father or the grandfather.
Even after a whole half hour there had been no change, however. Despite the spacious, luxurious, clean cage fully supplied with food and water right in front of it’s beak, the bird seemed content to stay in it’s shabby little box. It became too late, and in lieu of my repeated failures, I settled from putting the box inside of the cage for the night. I could only hope that soon it would be comfortable enough to explore. Closing the cage and switching off the lights, I headed to bed to wait for the new
At the beginning of the story: Fitzgerald asserts that Judy "[is] more beautiful than everybody else" and that she plays around with guys most of the time (433). Yet she ends up with a husband who "treats her like a devil" (Fitzgerald 435); she plays around no more, but "she stays at home with her kids" (435). This is ironic because the reader would never think that Judy, the gorgeous girl, "is beautiful but not happy" with her new life (Gidmark 4642). Irony is used in the story to make the reader excited and inpatient for the end, nevertheless surprisingly the story ends in a different way from what the reader is thinking. Additionally to similes and irony, the author uses symbolism as
