At the beginning of the movie, it seemed as though Regina and Gretchen had a dominating conflict style because they were both aggressive in their own way and were uncooperative (Hocker & Wilmot, 2014, p. 156). They did all that they could to keep their power and cared less about other people’s feelings. At the beginning, Cady seemed to have an obliging conflict style, she accommodated to what others wanted so that she could fit in (Hocker & Wilmot, 2014, p. 163). She agreed to help Janis because she wanted friends and she started acting like the Plastics when she got close to them because she wanted to fit in with them as well. At the beginning of the movie Janis had an avoidance conflict style.
Her lies are less a thought of her own character and more a reflection of her husband’s surroundings .She does feel the need to keep up her self –respect, while satisfying her own needs. Again, her lies established the fact that how stressed she is by the opinions of her husband. The patriarchal setup of the play and gender roles are being broken as she is destroying the strict rules and by deciding to go out of family. She says that Torvald stops her from eating macaroons as they will destroy her teeth as well as her beauty, she still eats the macaroons. The limitations didn’t stop her from satisfying her own pleasures and she refused to obey through harmless actions showing that she strongly desires independence, but is too afraid to raise her own voice.
Pretty Mean Girls Why are mean girls in movies pretty? After much thought, I came up with the theory that it’s because they were ugly in the past by society’s standards. The makeup that they wear today, all the beautiful brands of Sephora, MAC, and Mary Kay, further fuel their desire to hate and tease the looks of others; this is because they were once teased. Once they lost all that weight, didn’t have a face full of acne, or stopped talking with a lisp, they thought, well, I might as well put lots of makeup on too. They stopped being aware of what it felt like to get hurt or to cry, so they put on mounds of makeup to hide any emotion at all.
Hulga fits all of those categories in a way, she had a limp because she did not have a leg, she was not physically ugly, but the way she thought of herself was, and she was undesirable because she did not take care of herself properly. “One of her major triumphs was that her mother had not been able to turn her dust into Joy…” (O 'Connor 484), this could mean that with name decision Hulga had made her mother could not turn it into something positive, because once something is dust you can not turn it back into its original form. Hulga’s name change symbolized that she was not the same girl she once was or she would be. In addition, the author inserts Vulcans name to compare him to Hulga’s
Her only real pastime is watching shows like “ugly-d to teen queen”; to learn about the latest cosmetic surgeries which she then pester her parents to obtain for her. Although Taylor is a main character, she is incredibly unlikable and her personality is designed to allow for slight character development and it can be used used by Claire Carmichael to cover the many plot Holes of her story. Said character development includes becoming slightly less spoiled and Barrett Barrett is quite a poorly developed character. Barrett is polite and a rule follower to the extreme and he never does anything wrong until the very end of the book, where he shows a hint of rebellion. As a reader I found Barrett a more engaging and likeable character than Taylor.
Since, they were not fighting for self respect and empowerment. Mcmurphy passed around the girls knowing they would not mind it. Nurse Ratched however, is a role which is consistent with my view of women in the 1960’s. Since, she was powerful,and did not let the men belittle her. The movie represents the issues of sexism and authority issues.
The author shows the main reason the girl goes to the grocery store was because it calms her, she was apprehensive that she just moved to Cincinnati, the quote on page 24, “She loved to grocery shop. She loved it in the way some people love to drive along country roads, because doing it she could relax and wander” explains my second statement. My next example of “checkouts” being used in the story, was when the girl was zoning out as she was walking through the grocery store. The quote “Once inside the supermarket, her hands firmly around the handle of the cart, she would lapse into a kind of reverie and wheel the cart towards the produce.” This quote from page 25 proves the statement because, the quote talks about how the girl is zoning out and feeling calm. The girl’s parents thought it was great that she was willing to go, but they don’t see know in the story how she likes to
Literary Critique In the story ”Who Am I Without Him” written by Sharon Flake, I Felt the author expressed the scene very well by bringing the situation to life through the characters actions. In the story ”Who Am I Without Him” the main Character was bad because that is who she is, and she thought to herself if there is something wrong with being herself. The main character can’t tell if Raheem likes her because he is always shady in every scene especially in the last few. She hates the good girls because one of them stole Raheem away from her but the good girl moved away to another house. She is very jealous so anytime the good girl looks at him and he looks bad she gets jealous.
Finding meaning in this movie is most difficult I feel like I’m pulling on loose ends. Based on the movie as a whole I would rather write a paper about Harold’s edifice complex than minor religious themes. Harold is seen in most of the scenes with either his mother or Maude who is more than old enough to be his mother. In scenes with his mother she treats him less than his age as child. His mother has standards to keep with her friends and only interacts with him after her friends see something she rather them not have.
According to Robert Graves in the book The Greek Myth:1 pages 125 ¨Tyche is altogether irresponsible in her awards, and runs about juggling with a ball to exemplify the uncertainty of a chance:¨. Many people always get my sister and I mixed up because we look alike almost like twins. Trust me, you don´t want to get us mixed up, many people call Nemesis the downfall between us. My sister and I do have one thing in common, we both hardly ever show up when someone calls, we prefer to surprise. My symbols represent me in a way that they can only explain, which they are the cornucopia, orb and the rudder.
Grammar plays a very important role in “Sister Flowers.” The essay is centered on grammar and how her grandmother lacked the ability to speak properly. Maya often heard her grandmother speak using the wrong verb, or none at all; for example she often said “How you, Sister Flowers” and “Brother and Sister Wilcox is sho’ly the meanest.” These examples embarrassed Maya, often causing her to feel ashamed and hating her grandmother. Mrs. Flowers was considered an aristocrat in the community; she was well dressed and spoken and Maya felt Mrs. Flowers deserved to be spoken in a proper manner, not the way her grandmother spoke.
