She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways. In another quote the grandmother implies that the misfit is a good man by stating, "Yes it's a beautiful day," said the grandmother. "Listen, " she said, "You shouldn't call yourself the misfit because I know you're a good man at heart. I can just look at you and tell" (421). The grandmother doesn't know the misfit from Adam, yet she already gave him a persona that he has to match.

In Things Fall Apart, Okonkwo’s fear is the driving force behind many of his actions, including his own death. In the novel, Okonkwo’s fear of becoming like his father drives him to become the polar opposite of Unoka: emotionally hardened and distant. This is truly displayed in his hate for all things seemingly meek and calm, as the narrator explains, “Even as a little boy he resented his father’s failure and weakness, and even now he still remembered how he had suffered when a playmate told him that his father was agbala...And so Okonkwo was ruled by one passion-to hate everything that his
While it is quite obvious that they are very different, how their parents are able to raise them is one of the most noticeable factors. The parents of Stacey and the parents of T.J. raise their children in their own ways. Mary Logan, Stacey’s mother, is strict and very concerned for her son’s safety and refuses to allow him to travel to dangerous places. For example, when one of Stacey’s friends asked him if he wanted to sneak out to the Wallace , a shop run by racist whites, and learn new dances, he replied with, “Mama told us not to go down there”(73). Mrs. Logan clearly cares about her children, and does everything within her power to keep them safe.
Okonkwo often thinks that his favorite child Enzinma “should have been a boy” because she has “the right spirit’ and he worries about Nwoye because he cannot “make him into a man” and he would not win in “a wrestling match” (Achebe 66). The reason Okonkwo favor Enzinma over Nwoye is because she has more strength and she understands her father more both of which are things he would prefer in a boy. He dislikes Nwoye because he views him as weak and lazy which are traits that he would prefer in a girl. The gender distinction in Igbo impacts their society, occupations and behaviors. What causes gender division in Igbo culture is their polytheistic religious beliefs in Ani and Chukwu which depicts women as tender and men as belligerent.
This not only communicates that Chesterfield cares what people think about him, his son and his upbringing, but also shows he believes that it would be embarrassing if his son failed at something when he has had a superior education and more opportunities. All of these things reveal the values that Chesterfield believes in and should be enforced in his son. In conclusion, in Lord Chesterfield's letter to his son, he employs the techniques of irony and contradiction, which gives way to plain intimidation, in order to enforce the values of obedience, success and education, and upholding a good family
Ever." Pg. 173-174 To me this quote is very important because he is deathly afraid of Mautz and Virgil but he stands up to them because he doesn't want to expose Sarah. My second quote is “ The letter was clear:shaky as I was, I was her only friend. I'd rather have her hate my guts and be safe than love me and by alone.
It is mainly about his relationship with his father and how after his father passed away he realized how his anger and rage, which was depicted as a disease, was legitimate. His father was a paranoid, bitter old man who had a very profound hatred of white people. He used to warn his son that they were “not to be trusted.” Baldwin never understood his father’s hatred for white people; he did not understand that because his father was of the first generation of African Americans to be free that he faced a lot of racism growing up. They never understood why this bitter old man hated the white race so much; all they knew was that his hatred consumed him so much that in the end it was what killed him. Only after his move to New Jersey did Baldwin begin to understand why his father’s hatred towards the whites was so great.
