He at first doesn’t know Robert at all, and since Robert was blind the husband didn’t know how Robert’s life was and didn’t know his limitations or his drawbacks. The husband is narrow-minded and cannot put himself in Robert’s place. He even feels that Robert has a better connection with his wife than he does himself. Robert cannot see but can understand a person’s feelings and emotions better than the husband could. The husband was prejudice at first.
Although there is almost no chance for her to ever see either of them again, she still tries to preseve the relationship. She is used by Commander for sex and companionship and had an affair with Nick (higher preganancy chance). Most of her actions are being forced “Which of us is it worse for, her or me?”(151) meant the sex between the narrator and commander is unbearable to the point of watching your husband having sex with another women right infront of you. Her only defiance done totally by herself is “I will use the butter later that night.” (113), everything else including escaping the Gilead, having an affair with Commander, having an affair with Nick and leaving the Commanders house are all stimulated by others. Offred represent those who does not stand against oppresion, being pushed around and used for sex.

Ken Kesey’s book titled “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” encapsulates the theme of insanity. The book questions not only the reader, but humanity on “What is insanity?” and therefore “What makes a person insane?”. An example of these moral questions is best displayed in the quote “Tell me why. You gripe, you bitch for weeks on end about how you can’t stand this place, can’t stand the nurse or anything about her, and all the time you ain’t committed. I can understand it with some of those old guys on the ward.
McMurphy is a mockery of the figure Christ because Christ was a humble, charitable, giving, honorable man who was pure and Mcmurphy is the opposite of that. He is a wild card, a con-man, and an insubordinate, who is foul mouthed.He defies authority and gets into fights.He’s been in and out of jail for numerous reasons until he lands into the hospital ward due to “diagnosis and possible treatment”, even though he is just getting out of jail time. McMurphy enters the ward and completely changes the patients’ ways of life. He brings gambling, booze, sex, defiance, and hustling into the ward. He makes bets with the men and hustles them out of money on several occasions such as the bet of getting under Ms. Ratched’s skin and making her show her inferiority,
This of course at the time became national news. Philippe Petit did not have any permission to do what he did. This made his stunt even more dangerous for not only himself, but for others around him. This event is an extreme example of what people are willing to do to get what they want. However, is it really that extreme compared to what others have done?
However, Nurse Ratched’s sudden distaste for McMurphy didn;t always directly happen to him. Previous to his arrival, Nurse Ratched would scold and lecture patients acting out of line, but after the discovery of the ward party, Nurse Ratched grills into Billy Bibbit about sleeping with a prostitute and then comforts the frantic Billy, the whole time Chief describes she “glares at us as she spoke.” (272). This action, intended to draw guilt in McMurphy, exemplifies Nurse Ratched’s poor judgement choice since McMurphy’s arrival. The Nurse Ratched pre-McMurphy would’ve appropriately taken care of the Billy issue, but now upset and angry at McMurphy for the party he’s thrown, her judgement is impaired by trying to make McMurphy feel guilty, which ultimately leads to Billy’s suicide. In general, McMurphy’s arrival and antics played a very negative role in Nurse Ratched’s mental health, which can be seen declining throughout the
According to the Webster Dictionary, the definition of adultery is, “voluntary sexual intercourse between a married man and someone other than his wife or between a married woman and someone other than her husband,” which happens to be what Elizabeth Proctor drove her husband to do. In The Crucible, written by Arthur Miller, Elizabeth Proctor continues to show her deficiency as a good wife throughout the play. Elizabeth is to blame for the tragic outcome of the play because she was a cold wife, she led her husband to commit adultery, and Abigail Williams feared her. Throughout the play, Elizabeth Proctor is known for being a cold and an improper wife. On countless occasions, she makes rude remarks toward Abigail Williams like, “she’s a whore”
Devin Lunsky Period 4 Ken Kesey’s novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, is about a criminal who is sent to a psych ward for an evaluation, but ends up developing strong and meaningful relationships with the men on the ward who turn him into a better person. One interesting part the book is that it has many different people. There are more than 30 people on the ward who develop the story. It can be hard to keep track of the different people, however, each person is used to highlight problems that Ken Kesey felt needed to be talked about such as racism, homophobia, sexism, and the treatment of mental health patients.

In this story and in our world we see people all the time teasing others, making them hate who they are on the inside and especially the outside. Even a person who didn't have any issues with themselve can be convinced to feel other wise. In the text we see Georgina battling this issue with her husband...someone who should love and accept her; “Still, whenever she dared to look into the mirror, there she beheld herself pale as a white rose and with the crimson birthmark stamped upon her cheek. Not even Aylmer now hated it so much as she.”(Hawthorne, 364). Just like the people in this world the characters in this story didn't understand that you shouldn't mess with what nature gave you;”“It was the fatal flaw of humanity which Nature, in one shape or another, stamps ineffaceable on all her productions, either to imply that they are temporary and finite, or that their perfection must be
Peers described Jay as “He was ‘mean, intimidating, shady’” (Episode Eight). Jay probably felt intimidated by Adnan, Adnan’s this good, well liked guy, who’s close to his girlfriend, the person he’d do anything for, the prom queen and Adnan the prom king.

He kills Hae, shows Adnan the body and tells him not to get in the way of him and Stephanie, then says that if Adnan doesn’t help him, he’ll blame it all on Adnan.
