Pearl perceives this act as Hester trying to get rid of her only daughter. Pearl does not accept her mother’s abandonment and demands Hester to put the letter back on her chest. Because Hester’s letter remains on her chest, Pearl will always dwell in her mother’s life. When Hester finally places the A
In Act 1, Scene 3, Juliet obeys her mother and listens to what she has to say to her. She cares that her mother thinks well of her and wants to make her happy. There is a big change in that characteristic. In Act 3, Scene 5, she has a big argument with Lord and Lady Capulet about marrying Paris. She firmly tells her parents that she will not marry him and for that Lord Capulet says he will disown her if she dares to make such a decision.
Later, when Phaedra’s nurse got her to admit the cause of her sickness, Phaedra explains, “At first when love had struck me, I reflected how best to bear it. Silence was my first plan: to conceal that illness”(Hippolytus 393-395) to prove that she decided it best to keep her feelings a secret. She further explains, “Next, I believed that I can conquer love, conquer it with discretion and good sense. And when that too failed me, I resolved to die”(Hippolytus, 398-400), Phaedra explained her whole plan on how she was going to go about her feelings for Hippolytus and none of it ever mentions trying to fulfill them. Phaedra also states, “I cannot bear that I should be discovered a traitor to my husband and my children”(Hippolytus, 420-421) to make clear where her loyalties lie and to prove that she would never do anything that went against her family.
While her daughter is being slapped she simply observes and does not even slightly intervene to protect her only child who is begging on her knees. The Nurse, however, demonstrates her true love for Juliet as she steps in and confronts Capulet. The Nurse says, “God in heaven bless her” while pleading, “You are to blame, my lord, to rate her so” (3.5 176, 177). Such a statement to the person that has allowed her to stay long after Juliet finished breastfeeding is one that could cost her the loss of a second child. The Nurse continuously claims that Juliet is like her daughter, and defying Lord Capulet could lead her too far worse consequences than what Juliet gets for defying him.
A man called Dr.Powell invited him to the Abyssinian Baptist Church (church where he directed the speech “The Black Revolution”). The members of this church did not share the same points of view as to those of Malcolm’s. This is the main reason why Malcolm decided to present his speech there. His goal in this speech was to persuade individuals of this church to complete the widespread segregation. He completed persuading him by stirring them up emotionally.
The father role he takes on for Romeo naturally causes him to have a heavy hand in how Romeo develops and changes. Since Friar Laurence also believes in gender roles, he will consequently impart this point of view to Romeo, affecting how he sees the world and how he grows up. Romeo will grow up believing that there is something wrong with crying, that it displays weakness and that only girls can do it. One will be exposed to gender roles while growing up, controlling one’s understanding of the
He had to keep the pot. That’s why he couldn’t get them off the road.” This shows that the only thing Elisa valued and cherished, was just thrown to the side like it was nothing. Because of this, Elisa starts questioning herself as a woman and even going as far as asking her husband questions that she already knew the answers to. In the story she asks her husband, “Henry, at those prize fights, do the men hurt each other very much?”
This is a very important quote that explains why the governor wanted to take Pearl from Hester. The governor changed his mind when Hester said that she could teach Pearl why she should not sin and what would happen if she does. It is clear that Hester loves Pearl no matter what. At the end of the novel, it states, ”
As the Reverend, he was the one to guide people with religion and everyone in the small-town looks up to him. Throughout the play, Reverend Brown was shown as aggressive and demanding with religion. In the beginning of the second act of Inherit the Wind, he was leading the prayer meeting. As it ends, he cursed and casted out Cates as a sinner and later did the same to his own daughter, Rachel Brown. The message that can be understood is that religion is strict or harsh, as well as this is the only way religion is enforced.
Often in the sermons pastors persuade their audience to behave in a spiritual or more fashion. Such is the case in Jonathan Edwards “Sinners in the hands of an Angry God” where he sends sinners to hell, who do not repent. Edwards wanted to impact his audience by appealing to their fears, pity and vanity. Edwards had a powerful impact on his puritan audience because of his use of a cautionary tone, clear imagery and complex figurative language.
She realizes that having a child with Mr. Sands would bring more abuse from Dr. Flint to both her and her child, and when her first born, Benny is born, she explains that “I had often prayed for death; but now I did not want to die, unless my child could die too” (Jacobs 199). She would rather that her child die than live in bondage, especially under the watchful and revengeful eye of Dr. Flint. However, when confronted by Aunt Martha, Mr. Sands promises to care for his and Linda’s children and keep them safe from him. He also promises to free her
After the conference, Marilla shows sympathy towards Anne as demonstrated in the last part of Scene 3. I think Marilla judged Anne by her appearance and not by her personality and when Marilla learned more about Anne’s past life, she then developed a passion for Anne and decided to keep her after hearing about her past life rather judging her on her physical appearance and then trading her for a male orphan. That’s how I believe this will affect her relationship with Anne and Anne’s story about her past life caused Marilla to change her
In this quote, Scout is talking about how Aunt Alexandra doesn’t ever let a chance to nag people about how pure her family is and how impure their families are. This, however, is just her facade so she could hide her true self. In the following quote, it will show how Aunt Alexandra really is and this is after Atticus tells her, Scout, Calpurnia, and Miss Maudie that Tom died trying to escape jail. “I thought Aunt Alexandra was crying, but when she took her hands away from her face, she was not.
This episode does indeed center around the character of Pastor Frank, and quite honestly it is time for a bit of a confessio on my part. I have not been overly accepting of this character in Hope Valley, and ever since Mark joined last season, I wasn 't sure what I thought of his portrayal of this rugged and simple pastor. I was suspicious of Pastor Hogan, his intentions towards
