Reading this brings the idea that Asbury is mad at his mom, and somehow her mom’s presence bothers him a lot (4). Another important point in this story is the way that mothers are depicted, and how their interventions in their children’s lives have changed their children (1). According to Rod Dreher in his article “Mel isn 't the only sinner: Commentary: What an actor 's fiasco can teach us about bigotry” in which Dreher makes a comparison between two characters of O’Connor’s work, he argues, (2) O 'Connor gave us two very similar characters, Julian and Asbury, both of whom were pseudo-sophisticated layouts who proved their racial and cultural enlightenment by despising their simple-minded, conventionally prejudiced mothers. Both had harsh epiphanies in which they were forced to see that their self- righteousness, masquerading as moral superiority, not only blinded them to the goodness buried under their bigoted mothers ' messy humanity but also kept them from seeing themselves as they truly were: prideful sinners in need of mercy. (Dreher 2016)
And another conversation is that “I am too smart to cheat….It is under me” (157).Even though Kim’s mother suffered loneliness ..she is such a bold character to suffer and sacrifice though she got hardships and rejection from Aunt Paula. . “You may need to change your dreams. My little heart, listen. But sometimes our fate is different from the one we imagined for ourselves.
This shows how much David cares for Sophie. He is aware that he is in trouble, and could be more punished by defending her, yet he still defended Sophie. He cared for her even though she did not fit the true image. Secondly he was constantly worrying about what would happen to his friends and sister, Petra. For example, he said: “That night, for the first time in years, I had a once familiar dream, only this
In A Long Way Gone, Beah’s culture holds family very dearly, and their is much love and respect for one’s family. In fact, one main reason Beah keeps on his journey is in hope to see his family once more. Mister in the film however, has a very different outlook on family. His mother who doesn’t provide enough and is a drug addict, is someone who he does not respect. Mister calls her out on her actions, and gets mad that she has been saying she’s trying to get things together for a long time.
Though she was scared to lose her love, she had to support him through the hardest situations. Both of the characters had to stay consistent in their beliefs and face challenges.

(40, Chopin) The awakening helped Edna to discard the conventional concept, and sought for the real self. Edna was awakened from her family. After Edna’s husband had conflict with her, she stayed alone and felt “An indescribable oppression, which seemed to generate in some unfamiliar part of her consciousness, filled her whole being with a vague anguish.” (6, Chopin) The long-term suppression awakened her from the meaningless times she had spent, since she were under the control of her husband after marriage and forced to take care of children. By realizing that she should find her own happiness instead of clinging to outdated custom, she decided to get away from her husband. Therefore, she was not longer going to be the same woman as others who centered their lives on husband and children.
Nea’s journey seems solely based on saving her sister when in actuality she is trying to find excuses to avoid growing up. The tragic hero fabricates false dangers to compensate her desire to be needed by her sister who has moved on with her life. Nea feels abandoned becausen Sourdi matures while she remains a child. Ma and Sourdi remain connected with traditional customs that Nea simply cannot understand due to her exposure to American culture. Her over active imagination, anxiety, and aggression get her into trouble.
Another theme is that tragedy has no hope, this was said by the chorus. What I got from this is that when there is a tragedy the world wants you to move on, just like Creon said in the play “life goes on.” This was shown at the end when Creon continued throughout his days and duties even after his son and wife died. Another important theme that was talked about and explained well is “beauty is found within.” Antigone explains that she knows she’s ugly and that her father was also ugly. She said he became beautiful after what he was trying to accomplish was fulfilled. When he was finally at peace that is when he was at his most beauty.
Instead, the lack of privacy drove my family closer with an abundance of love. In fact, it was not until privacy was made available that I had the most traumatic event take place and change my life forever.
