Hell, is-as they very quickly realize-not a place of physical torture the way that it’s portrayed in so many cases; there’s no burning coal, no flames, or torture devices. Instead, they’re placed in a room that’s decorated and rather poor taste according to their own sensibilities, and already you see how that may appear hellish. Nothing can really be changed or moved in the room and you can’t get out, and slowly they start filling the room with the three main characters who are going to be there. First, there’s Garcin, who’s a newspaperman who fled Rio where he had been conscripted and fighting a war and got caught first fleeing to Mexico, and got caught and was killed by a firing squad. Inez is kind of a nasty woman who doesn’t have a lot of nice things to say and fancies the other character Estelle, who went from rags to riches by marrying a man twice her age.
Respect is a huge aspect not only between the inmates, but between the inmates and the prison staff as well. Since many prisons are not funded to support adequate treatment programs, a prisoner may feel disrespected if time is not made for them in counseling or treatment, which could in turn cause more resistance, (Kupers, 2005). Another shortfall of treatment in prisons is a concept known as a “cell-front” mental health interview, as described by Kupers, (2005). This is when an offender is in a high security unit, and cannot be moved to an office for mental health counseling. So, the prisoner has no other option but to talk to the clinician through their cell bars, next door to other prisoners who could listen in on the conversation.
An example of this would be solitary confinement in prison where the inmate is locked up in a cell alone, with no communication with anyone.The second modality is social ostracism where a person is ignored even if they are physically present with the group. An example of this would be children giving silent treatment to a peer they do not like. They would ignore him even if he was
McMurphy and Chief see that while Nurse Ratched is the root of the inmates fear, it is them that have lost the will and the drive to live. The inmates themselves are their own worst enemy, consuming themselves in this community of fear and cowering, unsure of how to live and how to function on their own. Both Candy and Vera are described as beautiful women, who have a knack for capturing the attention of the men in the ward. While Vera is married and Candy is not, both are shown as easy going women who are always looking for fun and good times. McMurphy is drawn to each of these women as they are the type of women he has been associated with his whole life, thus he feels comfortable and at ease when around them.
Both parties feel that their existence is defined by their condition, and there is no reality outside of it. For instance, when the prisoners have a few moments to themselves, whether it be marching to work or eating meals, they rarely think of outside the confinement of the camp. Their imprisonment transcends the physical world and keeps their mind in shackles. The thoughts of the prisoner, Shukhov explains, “--they’re not free either. They keep returning to the same things” (47).
A female ex-internee agreed to complete my questionnaire (Response, see Appendix 3). In her opinion, she believed that internment without trial would never be justified. She stated that the women internees in the prison camps were treated very badly. They suffered verbal, physical and mental abuse. She learnt to ignore the verbal abuse however she struggled mentally.
The nothingness…. He held his breath so that the vacuum could not get into his lungs” (111). (STEWE-2) Montag is also an exception because he is completely against the thought of any person watching TV. Montag thinks that watching too much TV is going to make their brain go dead. Montag thinks that Millie’s brain is giving her thoughts that are unnecessary and not useful.
The climax of this story is a rape trial that involves a Negro, Tom Robinson, and a white woman, Mayella Ewell. In the court’s eyes’ her power is clear, but is she that powerful? Because of her vulnerability as a woman and a very low-class status, she’s powerless, but her privilege as a white person in a racist society is very powerful. Mayella is powerless because of her gender. In the trial, it’s revealed that Mayella is physically, verbally, and sexually abused by her father.
In the real world, we can walk away and cool down. Inmates do not have that, they have to mentally strong enough to walk away in their head and still be surrounded with negativity and people physically. Mistreatment of inmate occurs unfortunately. This is another reason I believe violence would a occur. Inmates are not treated with respect and like how normal individuals are.
This beautifully written and emotive autobiography would be a perfect read for girls in general as the traumatic events in the novel happened when she was the tender age of sixteen. The novel explicitly displays gender stereotyping as females are depicted to be the weaker and submissive party. They take on stereotypical roles such as housewives or working in beauty salons whereas the men take on more dominant roles that are authoritative and powerful. Majority of the officials and guards at the prison of Evin are men and treat the female prisoners so poorly with the utmost disrespect. They used their manhood to exude abusive power over the females and in some cases the girls were
