Some readers might brush him off as a religious fanatic and a cruel, domineering father; others might identify with his struggle to raise his son how he thinks best. Some might be moved by Reb Saunders’s tears of apology; others might think that he abused Danny and that his apology could not possibly make up for it. Like Reuven, nobody is quite sure just how to feel about Reb Saunders by the end of the novel, which is actually a good thing in a different angle. It meant that The Chosen had accomplished a big goal. It enabled the readers to see beyond the surface of things and people, into deeper meanings.
Travis Bradberry once stated, “Everyone knows that life isn't fair. Saying it's not fair suggests that you think life is supposed to be fair, which makes you look immature and naive.” Things don’t always go the way people want them to and sometimes they do not want to accept that. The characters in William Goldman’s novel, The Princess Bride, face difficult trials, where they nearly die in most of them. Additionally, none of the characters get a happy ending. Goldman develops the theme, “life isn’t fair” by providing details from his own life, explaining the complicated relationship between the characters Westley and Buttercup, and describing the situations the characters were in to save Princess Buttercup.
She applies this idea to the fact that ‘the determining male gaze projects its phantasy onto the female figure, which is styled accordingly’, but not necessarily represent her accurately. Whoever holds the dominant position of power can represent the oppressed masses however they choose, regardless of the strength of the oppressed individual. Indeed, Alisoun makes this analogy not long after she says ‘stibourn I was as is a leonesse’ (l.637): powerful, but forced into subservience by (mis)representation in a society which privileges the male gaze. Further, though Alisoun’s voice challenges this double standard, we must not forget that she Chaucer’s creation. He is inscribing a female voice which critiques the very action of inscribing the female voice, making it necessarily and paradoxically inauthentic.
Irene starts suspecting that Clare is trying to get her man away from her because when they Irene and Brian were together, he was not himself. In the story, Irene felt that “He was discontented, yet there were times when she felt he was possessed of some intense secret satisfaction,”. (pt.3) This quote conveys the idea that Irene is starting to become suspicious of Brian, because the part where she says “ he was discontented’ gives it away that Brian is not happy anymore. Whenever a man feels this way with their wife and has been seeing other women, it is because they don’t feel the same tension that the guy feels with his new women. It is ironic how in the story, Irene’s husband, Brian, is cheating on her, similar to Larsen’s situation where her husband had an affair with one of the staff where he
You can see the tone change around the middle of the commercial. It goes from a happy and peppy theme to a dark reality of poverty and struggle. The tone change is queued with the line, “but… My Dad is a liar.” After this the viewer sees the moral dilemma that the commercial is trying to portray. After the tone change the commercial no longer focuses on all the things the father is giving the daughter but instead all of the things that the father is doing to give her those things. Without the necessary tone change the commercial would have no real effect, and wouldn’t show how special a kids education truly is and how hard it is to come by.
Sometimes one might think they are doing the right thing despite everyone else telling them otherwise. This can easily be seen in Doubt, a play written by John Patrick Shanley. In this play, Sister Aloysius starts to suspect that Father Brendan Flynn is starting to become incredibly intimate with one of the students at the school though she has no evidence say that it is true or not. Based on what little evidence she had and her overall attitude towards his smaller habits, I believe that he is innocent and that Sister Aloysius is making a false claim. First, it is show in the beginning of the paly that Sister Aloysius has a problem with all kinds of small issues.
According to Charles Mccardel“ He withholds the truth, but finally admits to his transgression. He does this partly to ease his conscience, but also (he hopes) to save his hide and protect his loved ones amid a witch hunt that's running out of control.” Even though he tells Elizabeth what he had done with Abigail without her having to find out through somebody else she does not trust him anymore. It hurts her so bad it is hard for her because what she thought was a good, loving, caring man actually turns out to be a no good cheater. He tries to make up for what he did through the years. No matter what he did she could never fully trust him , it could never be like it use to be.
Secondly, the black veil got in the way of people. Such as, his soon to be wife. Just because he didn’t show his bare face to Elizabeth, she ended their relationship. “...material emblem had separated him from happiness, though the horrors, which it shadowed forth, must be drawn darkly between the fondest of lovers.” (Hawthorne 12) Hooper is thinking about what he has done but still doesn’t do anything about it because the black veil signified something more important to him. “Each character, then, is faced with the prospect of assuming mature responsibilities, and each story is an account of how he responds to this crucial psychological situation.” (Askew 2)
Some factors contributing to this are marriage not being a prerequisite for sex as well as the inability to deal with frustrations in the relationship. According to___, “a lot of women withhold sex as a form of behavior modification or punishment when they are angry with their spouse.” In the play, Bono stated that his father moved from woman to woman (Wilson 1582). Additionally, Bono tells Troy that “if you try to juggle both of them…sooner or later you gonna drop one of them” (Wilson 1589). What Bono means by this is that if Troy continues to cheat, he is eventually going to get caught and lose Rose. Later on in the play, Troy admits to Rose that he is going to be a father.
However as the novel continues this goal of a good society begins to dissipate as less is done and morals begin to crumble. This can be seen while Ralph starts to complain that even though they “‘have a lot of assemblies’” the things that they decide on “‘don’t get done’” (Golding ,72). Ralph is still trying his very best to keep the ideals of a democratic and an “adult” society upheld even though it is crumbling at the seams. The fact is that he can’t quite find a way to control the boys and get them to conform to this way of thinking which begins to set the stage to the problems that will occur. (add
The characters of Jack from Lord of the Flies and Jody from Their Eyes were Watching God, both had similar flaws, but those flaws affected their stories differently. Jack’s power struggle and separation from Ralph from the of Lord of the Flies was greatly impacted by Jack’s need to prove himself, his extreme want for more power, and his idea that Ralph stand as a threat to his power. In Their Eyes were Watching God, Jody’s idea that Janie might be a threat to his attention, Jody’s severe hubris, and his desire to be a big voice leads to his mental distance, and eventual lack of any communication with his spouse, Janie.
It is more about comforting her than anything else. Holden is a teenager who suffers from serious mental illnesses, but nonetheless, he is a caring individual. He was enduring a dilemma and chose not to elaborate on it, and as a result, his psychological state became fragile and he became unapproachable, but if he chose to discuss the problem with a loved one, a potential solution could have been found, along with psychological health. That is where he made his mistake, and became mentally unstable. As much as he tries to downplay the fact that he does not care about Jane by using diction like ‘hell’ and ‘bastard’, but he truly cares.
