If Anna could go back in time just once she would want to go back to Ancient Greece to see how they functioned back then. Anna is not allowed to have a job due to all the work that goes into being apart of the band. Which is one of the reasons she likes being a teenager however she doesn’t like the fact she is never taken seriously. Anna seems to be a well put together person until it comes to thunderstorms because her cousin was nearly struck by
Meeting Homer Barron was her biggest change from her old self, because her father refused to let her be in any relationships, but she went out in public with Homer “driving in the yellow-wheeled buggy and the matched team of bays from the livery stable” (454). Consequently, this was only because she was living in her own reality and believed that Homer would be the one to marry her. Homer was “not a marrying man” (454) and would not marry Emily, but she refused to accept the denial of marriage from him, so she killed him to keep him with her forever. She stayed within her house to keep herself in the old South. When she told the men to see colonel Sartoris, she was not aware that “Colonel Sartoris had been dead for almost ten years” (452) at that point.
Since Genie was kept in severe isolation for the majority of her life, she was unable to decide that the isolation and fear that she was experiencing was not one that every child knew. Genie had experienced copious amounts of trauma at the hands of her parents and because of that, after she was freed she was unable to achieve any social norms put in place by modern society.As she started integrating into society, she began to learn social norms. When she was integrated, she would constantly be spitting and clawing. As Genie began spent more time in the community, she learned that spitting and clawing were not part of societies norms and eventually
Dorothy will not let the Wicked Witch take the slippers. Most people would just give the slippers to the Wicked Witch because they are faced with the fear that she possesses. Often people will let other people take over them weather it is your boss, parents, even a friend. People need to realize like Dorothy, to not allow people to walk over and control oneself. Dorothy never gives the slippers, which shows her maturity and ability to stand up for herself (Nathan).
For the most part in her life, her mother isolated and imprisoned her from everyone. She was unable “to leave the apartment for anything other than school”, which left her with what she claims as “nothing that could help me fit in with the other kids.” She was so devoid of social interactions and freedom that when she was thirteen years old and met Charlene, she attempted to emulate her because she was “jealous of her life.” She tried to do everything in her power to mature. She was even willing to exchange her morals and values to have what she believed to allow her to have power and control. She followed Charlene into the car of older boys whom she didn't even know. She let Rodney (one of the older boys) have his way with her without any hesitations.
even her voice was affected by his condition, and she was not allowed by her mother to paly or do what other teenagers do because her mom was overprotective to her. I go on a journey with Joy as she struggles against what she’s always known to be right, and wanting to fit in. Joy finds her self being a awkward ,she feel that she always doing wrong . One of the things Joy begins to deal is when he find her mother's book entitled ' Big Girls Dont Cry'. It’s a book of fiction, but it is very obviously based upon her mother’s life.
Antigone broke every rule in the book when it came to the way that women were supposed to behave in society back then. Women back then were either seen as slaves, mothers, or concubines, even Kreon told his son Haimon that, “when you lay yourself under a pleasure female the pleasure goes cold soon…and never never never let ourselves be bested by a woman” (lines 740-745 & 772-77), claiming that women are only good for one thing and even that is not enough to trust a woman. But Antigone was not seen as any of these things she believed in something and even though her sister told her not to do it, Antigone knew what was right and defended her beliefs. When Ismene said, “moreover we’re girls girls cannot force their way against men” (lines 70-72) it was obvious that this was one of the reasons that she did not want to help Antigone, she was raised to believe that women did not have the same strength that men have. Antigone defied all “rules” women were taught back then and made sure that not only would she be looked like as a martyr, but as a woman who was not afraid of any
She felt them go away. And this was because she would play no games with them in the echoing tunnels of the underground city”(Bradbury, 3). Margot stands alone and doesn’t try to talk or hang out with the other children. Her need to belong is very harsh. The other kids are jealous of her, because when she was a kid she saw the sun, and she wants all the others to believe that she actually did see it.
Where the classic concept goes, so does the story, for example, “Megan gave me a glare you could have used to cut metal, don’t talk to the weirdo because people were staring at us now, staring and snickering” (7). Megan, this book’s girl-next-door equivalent character, is afraid to break through societal norms, where people of two different social classes become friends, and warns the heroic (and, in this case, uncaring) Justin not to stray from the safety of the path she has taken. Justin takes interest in the so-called weirdo, and the unlikely friendship is born again. This is not the only place where the story resembles others of the same type, as is proven by the authors words, “McManus did this and you let him! You fucking let him, day after day after day!
In To Kill A Mockingbird, Scout is losing her innocence due to her lack of a filter and too much curiosity. “What’s Rape Cal?” (Lee, 165). Scout, due to her lack of a filter, does not realize that some questions are better left unanswered for her age. She never was told not to ask these sorts of questions, or of she was she did not listen. She is innocent in this sense and asking the questions that she does, she is losing that innocence piece by piece.
