In this stage, I will describe what I felt about the situation. At first, I was amazed at the way Susan was taking care of the situation. She was continuously trying to keep John calm, but even she knew that she was failing at it. The pain on her face whilst telling her husband that their son will be coming late, when in reality he won’t be coming at all, was clear. At this point I wondered that how many times John must have asked this question at home and how Susan would have taken care of the situation.
(7-10) What she is scared about is her son going into adulthood and she thinks that he is not ready for the challenges life gives you. The words “get over my fear of men” could mean that she had an abusive relationship and she needs to get over the past and learn that her little boy is a man now and he will not act like the other men she was with. Lines (10-14) show us that she is comparing her little boy going into one of Houdini’s challenges. She also believes that her son cannot make it and beat that challenge. After you really think about it you can see that her son is able to get through the challenge and escape it to be free.
The reader can see this when the narrator tries to write her daily journals, but she has to do it in a sneaky way so her husband will not catch her doing so. John disapproved of his wife writing her thoughts down in journals, because he did not think it would help her get better. Additionally, the husband 's constantly felt like their wives weren 't happy with something and if they wanted something fixed, it was the husband 's job to do so. The reader learns this when John mentions that “after the wallpaper was changed it would be the heavy bedstead, and then the barred windows, and then the gate at the head of the stairs, and so on”( Perkins 772). This demonstrates realism because women during this time were truly looked down upon by the men and the author
For example, Jeanne is always obstinate throughout the whole novel no matter what. Even out of the camp Jeanne was very obstinate because there was a time when her father wanted her to not become queen, but she insisted that she would become one and so she did. Eliezer, on the other hand, is very compliant and he does what he is told to do. An example of him doing that is when the SS people would give him demands he would immediately follow their command. Also, Eliezer would always do what his father said because he did not want to fight with his
Lena’s memories of her childhood serve as characterization for her. The passage also serves to explain her necessity for freedom through anecdotes from her childhood. For example, the reason that she does not want to be married is because, “even the wild ones” turn into cranky old fathers. This is reflective of her cynical memories of home, saying that her father was a cross man. Lena’s refusal to be married was a radical notion at the time of the books publication.
From the beginning of the book, when she sees the look on her parents, a little disrespectful disappointment flicker in her eyes. Additionally, she keeps denying her father’s effective theories and methods of which Tatiana urgently needs for her trouble with speaking. After the incidents, each of the family members blamed themselves and accused each other for what had happened, but the truth appears to be beyond our
I also had the same fears that they had, that my kids would fear me, more than respect, love me. I would fear the image of them growing older and becoming independent, that they would never come back to see me, or dump me in a retirement home. I feared that my kids would look at me as I did to my own parents. But, it was the discipline that we enforced, that eventually grew our family ties
She has always wanted to protect Tommy from embarrassing himself. Kathy felt like she was responsible for Tommy so he can achieve all he can. In the beginning, he would not allow it because he did not feel good about a girl asking him about his shirt. He soon realized that she was just trying to help. He also realized that she was one of the people who would listen to him.
Elliott then resorted to lying and sneaking around behind his mother’s back because of his mother’s disapproval of him telling stories. This is an accurate norm that a child would demonstrate because they would not want to get into trouble. Obviously there is conflict in the home with Elliott because he makes the comment that his dad would believe him. Elliott is showing his emotional need of his father not being there with him but
Sadly, I think Sue had a tendency to not become involved with Dylan enough after that, from her statements it seemed like there were key moments where a mother should have gotten involved and took care of her son.
