At the beginning, when Julia was just a little girl she was very proud of her heritage and easily frustrated when people were to mispronounce her family's names.

However, as the story countries and she spends more time in New York City, she develops a likeness for her American names. She pushes away her own self, dismaying her 12 word name and her Dominican family. Julia became influenced by the people around her, all owning an American name.

They meet in a supermarket in the slightly littler town of Newburgh, and this time, Roberta is excited to see Twyla out of nowhere instead of brushing her off like she did at the restaurant. Roberta is dressed very nicely and has seemed to have turned her character around into someone who has gotten married and pieced her life together. Twyla has also gotten married in their time of being disconnected from each other, and she seems very content with her life as well (Morrison 204-205). It is very interesting for the reader to see how these two ladies have changed since the last time that they had crossed paths, but Twyla also brings up a good point when she asks herself why they once acted like strangers, one black and one white, to acting like long-lost sisters on their way to go and get a cup of coffee and catch up (Morrison 206). While they’re catching up, they have a bit of a misunderstanding with each other about what happened to Maggie and how she fell, and this caused to part ways yet again because of discomfort and contradicting point of
This reveals an attribute of flapper behavior: self centeredness. Desiring folly is quite self selfish in that Daisy doesn’t want to deal with the troubles she is generating, but simply wants to “let other people clean up the mess” she generates (Fitzgerald 179). Other typical flapper traits are displayed through the behavior of young women attending the Grdeat Gatsby’s luxurious parties. These girls were “putting their heads on men’s shoulders in a puppyish, convivial way, girls were swooning backward playfully into men’s arms, even into groups, knowing someone would arrest their falls.” This jovial behavior points to two key aspects of a flapper. The more obvious is their flirtatious behavior around men; flappers were notorious for their sexual looseness and their enjoyment hanging around men.
Here we have this woman raped by this man and she falls in love with her rapist. Now in society that would not be funny, but for the purposes of the musical in, which it was presented as a comedic bit with fireworks and music, this bit was funny. In The Frog, there are also sexual comedy. The bit that captured my attention was when Xanthias is suddenly eager to enter the club, for lack of a better term, because there are dancing girls in the building. This is so typical
In spite of the fact that she tries on numerous roles none of these appear to fulfill her; she attempted these identities like trying on outfits, then disposed of them. Her failure to discover any part that really fulfills her presumably adds to her general feeling of vulnerability and proceeded with withdrawal from her family and, undoubtedly, whatever is left of the world. Since she can't locate a specific part that suits her, she attempts not to have any role at all; the coldness and disengagement of the pale white room makes it appear that she is attempting to rid herself of her previous life. From reading the story we can tell that the young wife has a creative side she tried writing poetry among other things, but being secluded cause her to suppress her creative energy. In some culture a woman’s role is to be a house-wife and mother.
Her sexuality has influenced Walter to the point he can’t get her out of his head and soon after she shows up to his apartment and that is when we see that he is no longer able to resist her. While in his apartment Phyllis portrays herself as the victim and uses that card to create an illusion to Walter of how living with her husband is like an imprisonment and a boring authoritarian marriage. She uses her demented mentality to persuade and guilt Walter to help trick her husband into signing the papers for life insurance.
